Chilled Lemonade Dessert

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2013
This was SO easy and tasty. Great for a hot summer night when someone else in the household ate all the ice cream and forgot to replace it. Grandkids loved it. used the rest of lemonade can to make lemonade with 1/3 less water. I grated the lemon rind, but, will probably leave it out next time and use as a garnish instead. The creamy texture with the chewy bits didn't work for me. May try similar concocotions with other frozenjuice blends and jellos.

Sour Cream and Chive Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
made this into crescents with an overflow of chives from the garden. a most forgiving dough. i did flour my board before rolling out. forgot to give them a second rise and just baked and they were very light, tender and tasty. it is a VERY SWEET dough. sugar could be cut. i will make again cutting back on the sugar. a brush of butter with some sprinkled cheese would be nice too. this could easily make itself an hors d'ouerves with the addition of a slice of cheese and meat rolled in before baking.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: May 11, 2013
i have used the proportions in this recipe including the baking soda for every kind of cold tea for summer months. sometimes i use Constant Comment, sometimes i use green tea, somtimes a fruity Celestial Seasonings. i ontinue to use the bakiing soda because it does chse off the bitterness regardless of the leaves being used. and it adds that bit of saltiness that every sweet thing needs to make it work. i really wanted a good raspberry tea rx, used this and a few drops of raspberry extract. half a gallon gone in a few hours, and it was just me!!!

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
I am never buying canned refried again. this is great, tasty and better for us!!. I freeze in bags according to how I might use it, basically, if I were to buy a can, I freeze about 2 cups in a container or freezer bag. Easy to make up, throw the beans in the crockpot Saturday night. Make something using them for Sunday Dinner, bag up the rest!!!

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
Had to come up with inexpensive but tasty munchies for 200 people for a friends 80th birthday party and made this - quadrupled the recipe, using the "Refried Beans without the Refry" from this site. Also made salsa since several of us putting the party together had tomatoes from the garden. Made it for a Christmas party and Chamber of Commerce After Hours gathering according to recipe, it is economical, feeds a lot of people and is just great!!!!!! As one friend said, tasting it for the first time "it's one of those tastes that has so many flavors you just want to keep eating it!" After making this so many times, a few easy tips. I used greek yogurt instead of sour cream. It's a great replacement for anything calling for sour cream. Rotel Diced tomatoes with chilies (Mild)(or your grocery store House brand) is an inexpensive replacement for Salsa, if you stock up on it as I do when its on sale. Zip it up with some bottled hot sauce. I have also used canned diced tomatoes, canned chilies and some of the taco seasoning for the salsa layer. I bought some ready made guacamole for a "special" party and layered it in. I don't think anyone was counting the layers!!

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
5 STARS for CONCEPT!!!Not sure why I had not thought of this myself!!! Great way to make ahead for a busy day and have a great meal! I read this recipe and wanted to try it, thinking i had all the ingredients, so planned on it. Then found the lasagna noodles I had were No Boil. Wasn't sure how it would work. Used them anyway. I have a HUGE crockpot and there is just 2 of us, so I often make smaller versions of recipes in Pyrex or stoneware casseroles that fit inside my crockpot. This was the case again, so made a smaller version in a smaller casserole and placed inside of crockpot. worrying about the no boil noodles, i poured some water in the crockpot until it was about halfway up the casserole dish, a baine marie so to speak, and set it for 4 hours. PERFECT!!!! I used homemade marinara, and had some turkey italian sausage that needed to be used up. Added a can of mushrooms. YUM!! Will try again because I LOVE using my crockpot!!!

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
Perfect for our tastes! Paired with the Whole Wheat Honey crust from this site. We are on a low sodium diet but love homemade pizza. This sauce worked great. Used no salt added paste, omitted the anchovy paste ( didn't have any & too much salt anyway) Added salt substitute to taste. Made it in the morning, let the flavors medl until dinner time. It's a keeper in my book!

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2011
I got home later than expected one night and had to fix something quick. Had bought fresh basil for another meal, but so glad to have it on hand!!! This was tasty and healthy and fast!!! Used diced tomatoes that were on hand. Used immersion blender to make it less chunky. Topped with fresh grated parmesan reggiano, served with baguette sliced and green salad. This is a keeper for us!!! always have ingredients even if I don't have fresh basil, I have dried, and can put this together in no time and it tastes FRESH - gonna share this with my gardening buddies too that work with me to trade garden overflow!!!

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
this was excellent! and it sure solved the time coordination and space problem of serving Thanksgiving! I was afraid of naysayers since there was no stuffing in the birds, but not a single complaint! I read many of the reviews and played the liquid by ear - did not use all called for. Used some bread cubes from ends I had saved, filled out with storebought bread cubes. I did use 3 eggs since our eggs were from our friends and smaller than commercial. One of the kids told her mom the stuffing was "to die for!"

Baked Potato Skins

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
i made this into an all day recipe beause i had the time. baked the potatoes to take advantage of the heat the oven gave off, as opposed to turning the furnace up to heat the house. baked extra potatoes for twice baked potatoes that were frozen for another meal. tonight serving the skins with Green Chile Chicken burgers. Saved the insides of what i needed for tonight to add to tuna for tuna patties (like salmon patties) later in the week

Cheese Cake Cups

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
Killer easy and delicious! I added a tablespoon of lemon juice for extra bite. The wafers I bought seemes so small inthe muffin cups, so I crushed them slightly to cover the bottom - more than one to a cup. It all baked well and held together and great just plain! Toppings could make endless delicious. I used homemade raspberry jam and made a quick white chocolate sauce (chips and milk inthe micro) Very good! Saving this for party ideas!!

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
This was so simple and delicious! I had bought a butternut squash, never having cooked one before, to give me inspiration. Next day, a friend called and said she had a sack full ofpears that she would never use and would I want them? Bingo - Hubby was a bit skeptical thnking it would taste bland, but really good flavor. I took the advice of others and roasted the squash, made it easier and tastier (smpled the roasted squash as I was scooping it out!)I did not have any heavy whipping cream, but had a half block of cream cheese. Read a couple other recipes and found one that used cream cheese for thickening, so I addede that. NIce creaminess, color.I served this with the Real N'Awlans Muffaletta on this site. Soup and Sandwich and darn good!

Roasted Rosemary Cauliflower

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
We love roasted vegetables in any combination and this is good!!! My rosemary plants were going crazy, and bought a head of cauliflower planning for something else that fell thru....this fit the bill! as another reviewer said, any veggies could be added, and yes you have to watch it, but one reviewer did like me - and i alwasy do this - roast until the veggies have color - you might think they are not done, but pull them anyway and give em a zap in the microwave. the microwave actually intesifies the flavors since the roasting has taken the vitals of the veggies to carmelization. microwave cooks from the inside out, so all that goodness stuck inside gets a chance to improve itself while your veggies are heating up

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
Easy, time saving or for a cook like me that decides what to make 10 minutes before she wants to eat =PERFECT! If you are accustomed to making your dough and going thru the 2 rises, and cannot eat anything but, don't try this recipe. It's tasty, but it is not the dough you might be accustomed to - but it is a keeper if you are short on time and pizza is on the menu. it's going into my recipe box!!!!

Savory Bubble Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
i cheated on this but am giving it 5 stars because the coating for the bread balls is yummy and was perfect for what i was looking for. I used canned biscuits, quartered and tossed in the butter and coating then baked for almost 25 minutes. i needed something quick and recalled a "Pampered Chef" party i went to where they made bubble pizza. i had all the ingredients for this but not the time for yeast dough. The canned biscuits were something I was used to also for sweet Bubble Bread. And a staple in my frig.

Zucchini Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
This was fantabulous! I had been asking for zucchini from friends and relatives and got given 6 huge ones! I made bread and butter pickles out of 2 of them, shredded and froze another, then found this recipe. No one figured out it was anythin out of the ordinary for cobbler. Since my zukes were large, I peeled, seeded, quartered longways and sliced thinly. Looked like small granny smiths!!!! The lemon juice is the key. I added oats to my crust also since I love the crunch. Will definitely make again and try using brown sugar for the filling.

Easy Crescent Muffuletta

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
RENAME THIS RECIPE tasty , easy, but really not fair calling it muffaletta to those that have not experienced muffaletta. Muffaletta is about the olive salad mingling with the meats and cheeses. Play fair Pillsbury.

Scalloped Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
The original version of this recipe was something my mom used to make. I made it once for my husband and he didn't like it. Then I saw something similar on a cooking show but with some additions. The additions were garlic, basil and cheese. I love the original. Hubby loved the morphed version. Each is a great way to showcase fresh out of the garden tomatoes. And in mid winter, try it with canned diced tomatoes. takes you right back to summer!!!
