Olive and Blue Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
Thank you for this yummy recipe! I didnt make it quite as specified, but I'm sure it would be yummy that way too. I used black olives, as a few others have, because they come already minced up in a can that's the perfect size. I could not find fresh chives to save my life, so I used four green onions instead. I added the last little tiny bit of ranch dressing in the bottle, just because, and half an avocado all mashed up in the cheese, also just because. It's really good! Will absolutely make again.

Herbed Lentils and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
I was out of onion so I just left it out; I don't care for Swiss cheese so I left that out too. Turned out great. It's nice to have a basic recipe for making lentils with rice in the oven. I am going to try it with spinach next.

Banana Walnut Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
I didn't find it necessary to mix the ingredients in a food processor. I just omitted the sliced banana at the end, and mashed and mixed the 3 bananas and the wet ingredients all together with a whisk. I paid attention to the reviews of this recipe that complained of "crumbliness;" so I added an egg along with the wet ingredients, and mine did not turn out crumbly at all. Additional changes I made include almonds instead of walnuts, and I added a teaspoon of salt. It's yummy!

Cranberry Chicken II

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
I like this recipe. I browned the chicken on both sides before pouring the sauce on and baking, so it took more like 30 minutes to get done. Also, I only used one packet of onion soup mix. Tasted great!

Southern French Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
I used only 3.5 Tb of sugar; 1 Tb (not one ts) prepared horseradish; 2 ts onion powder instead of fresh onion; garlic-flavored red wine vinegar instead of cider vinegar; only 1/4 cup oil; and I added (don't laugh) a dash of red vermouth. Very tasty. Will definitely make again.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2006
I, too, used the whole package of cream cheese. I also went ahead and added the entirety of the 16-oz jar of alfredo sauce, and the whole 8-ounce package of shredded mozzarella (it was more than a cup). I used raw garlic minced fine, and I added a few minced-up green onions and some canned nopalitos, drained and rinsed. The resulting dip is so rich and creamy and good. I like the bite of raw garlic, but I will not use as much next time; maybe just two cloves.

Vanilla Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
I made the changes suggested by other reviewers: used half the water, twice the cornstarch, confectioner's sugar. I also added half a cup of evaporated milk when I added the butter and vanilla. Not only very good on the bread pudding I made it for, but good cold the next day with store-bought molasses cookies.

Lemon Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
These are very good. I used more lemon zest than the recipe called for, about twice as much. Also, keep a close eye on the cookies while they are baking. They will overbrown if you give them half a chance.

Black-Eyed Peas and Gumbo

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2005
I will definitely make this again. I made some changes. First, I used smoked sausage instead of ham. I also used two cans of ro-tel tomatoes with green chiles instead of chopping fresh tomatoes. I did not have fresh parsley, so I used about half the amount of dried. Finally, I added half a teaspoon of dried savory. And like a previous reviewer, I cooked the vegetables in with the roux, and because I used frozen okra I added it last. The gumbo is very good. Thanks for submitting it!

Baked Fried Eggplant

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
When I made these, I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream, and crushed seasoned Ritz-cracker crumbs for the bread crumbs. They were delicious. Thanks for the recipe.
