Graham Cracker Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
This was SO good...the CRUST!!! I had a quarter of a can of Sweetened Condensed Milk left from another dessert on this site, so I easily quartered this recipe with the calculate tool. We just thought that this was to die for and very simple. Thanks!

Lori's Spicy Chipotle Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2010
Beyond excellent! So much flavor! Like someone else said, I'll never boil lasagna noodles again --that was the bonus. For our tastes, used 1 T. of the chipolte chili in adobo sauce (about 2 chilis), 3/4 t. sea salt, 3/4 t. black pepper and it was just perfect. Also, used the diced tomatoes as others suggested. Had to use dried spices; 1 t. basil and 2 t. oregano. Used 2 containers of mushrooms, Neufchatel in place of cream cheese and a slightly bigger bag of spinach. Didn't have Asiago so doubled the amount of Parmesan. I don't think it made a bit of difference using what I had on hand. This was absolutely to die for! This made one 9 x 13" and one 9x9".

Roasted Broccoli

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
As others said, salty, salty, salty (depending on your taste, I guess) and I put NO extra salt in it. Next time I will also halve the Montreal steak seasoning for that reason. Seems like this would always be a very dependable recipe. Roasted the veggies (used red pepper) and they came out perfectly crisp-tender. Thank you!

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
Scrumptuous! I also didn't bother with the foil, just sprayed the pan. Had a can of raspberries in heavy syrup, so drained and used that since I didn't have the jam. It was melt in your mouth good but it was on the crumbly side for cutting and serving at a potluck. Next go around, I might look back again on other reviewers suggestions for moistening it up a bit. Simple, simple, simple and not too sweet, just right. Next time I'll use the Smucker's Low Sugar Raspberry Jam. We always preferred it to regular. It even seemed fruitier. Thanks for sharing!

Cuban Midnight Sandwich

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Quick and easy solution for dinner. Hub's was on wheat bread and he did mine on a tortilla (less carbs). Next time will use the flip side of the waffle iron, flat griddles for panini. Didn't think of that at the time but should be perfect. Thanks!

Barbequed Pineapple

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
BBQ'd Pineapple Very nice side. Steve made this for a larger group, so he doubled it. The good thing about this one, you can cheat and halve/quarter the rings on the buffet table at the last minute if you find you have to stretch it!!!. Lots of inquiries on this one. He made it as written, no changes or tweaks. It was both a hit and --GONE!

Spicy Lamb Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
These were very good...different. Served it, as suggested, with a plain yoghurt/cucumber mixture. We like them on the rarer side so 3-4 minutes per side was perfect for us. Thank you.

Applesauce French Toast

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
I used a little more applesauce (1/3 c.) and a little less milk (2/3) and 1 T. brown sugar instead of the white. Used slipper cibotta bread cut thick (1"). It made 8 pieces. Everything else was the same. I cooked it on an electric griddle at 350. Served it with applesauce on the side and warm maple syrup. Powdered sugar and a fruit syrup would be really good with this, too.

Spicy Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
I skipped the step of cutting it in half. I pierced it with a knife all over and nuked it for 10 minutes, not covering it and no water. Came out perfectly. I used leftover ground lamb and pork tenderloin for the meat. Used a 29 oz. can of the crushed tomatoes and omitted the wine and capers. The thickness of the sauce was just right. We put freshly grated Romano on it as a great finish. This was very tasty and also a very attractive dish. I am going to add cubed eggplant to it for the leftovers. If served alone, this was enough for 2 of us to eat for one meal and enough for a 2nd meal as leftovers.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
Used boneless chicken breast filets. I didn't realize we were out of Balsamic vinegar so I had to sub Tarragon. It was just wonderful! We omitted the butter at the end but thickened with flour/water. I agree with the previous reviewer about making more sauce and putting it over pasta next time. Chicken was very tender and melt-in-your-mouth good. Thanks!

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
This really lives up to its name, "The BEST". Very, very tasty. We need to keep referring people to the cook who submitted this recipe's "real" directions on 3/24/08. I could only cook it about 6 hours the first day. I used a 1# bag of baby carrots and 4 tomatoes. For the 7 c. chicken broth, I used 1 1/2 T. ham base for 4 c. Added the additional 3 c. and 1 1/8 T. ham base the next day when it cooked for a few more hours. I don't think anything was lost having to do it this way in case plans to cook it all in one day change for you, too. And the day after, it was just as good, if not better. Thank you!

Vicki's Hush Puppies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
Instead of self-rising flour and self-rising cornmeal, per others, I just added 3 t. (1 T.) of baking powder. It admittedly was on the sweeter side and I know that isn't the traditional Southern style but if you like cornbread that way, you'll like this. It's not for everyone's taste but it was for ours. Thanks!

Beer Batter Fish Made Great

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
We have a favorite Irish pub that just has the lightest beer battered fish that we just crave. Now we know how they do it! The hub made it and did coat the filets with flour first. He thought next time he'd add a little flour to the batter, also. I think it just "felt" wrong to him with it being so thin but the finished product says, "Don't do it!" He cut the salt down to 1 t. per other reviews. It was then pan fried it Smart Balance. SO delicate and delicious! Thank you very much!

Byrdhouse Marinated Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
This was just wonderful! Used tomatoes from the garden and I know there was more than what was called for so I did double the dressing. Not necessary! We had to pour some of it off. Very, very tasty. Thank you!

Green Chili Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
This was a very nice, moist egg dish. I made it in an 8x8" dish. We roasted two Hatch chilis for it as this batch was particularly hot even for our tastes. I used 1/8 t. salt and pepper, 1/2 t. garlic powder, 1/8 c. Hormel real bacon bits and doubled the cheese. I baked it for 30 min. and it was done perfectly to our liking. Thanks!

Lemon Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
Used two lemons and 6 limes to = 3/4 c. Doubled all spices except salt. Marinated in bag 3-4 hrs. Used no butter but instead sprayed baking dish. Was not soggy. Like someone else, boiled the rest of the marinated then I thickened it with remaining breadcrumbs then added apple cider to create the right consistency. The next time I made it, just boiled the marinade only and poured it over the chicken. It was equally as good. I did have to bake it an additional 15 minutes after turning, for a total of 45 minutes after turned.

Lasagna Alfredo Roll Ups

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
When I made Lasagne last time, I knew I wanted to try this recipe, so I cooked the extra lasagne noodles and froze them to see if this part could be done ahead. They froze/defrosted perfectly. I made the recipe exactly as written. I, too, would like to use my own sauce next time "just because". However, this was just wonderful, super simple but looks very elegant and like you slaved over making them. I'll add a little parsley in the top sauce for color next time. Great keeper! Thank you.

Cowboy Caviar

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
Very, very tasty! Omitted the cilantro (personal taste). Easy recipe that gets better as it sits. We had some leftover spaghetti noodles that we sliced up a bit and threw in the following day. It was fantastic! I thought I had Zesty or Robusto Italian dressing but didn't. I would've used that instead of straight Italian but it wasn't even missed. It was quite "robusto" enough on its own. Thank you!

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I don't know why I had it in mind that this would turn out crunchy but it doesn't. It was very moist and cake-like. Baked it for 50 minutes and it turned out beautifully. VERY easy.

Easy Pickled Beets

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
We used fresh beets and green onions from the garden, cooking the beets for a few minutes until sharp knife-tip tender. We doubled the recipe for the amount of beets we had but only used 2 c. sugar still and 1 1/2 t. salt. The cinnamon was the perfect touch! These would go nicely as a side with pork. Thank you!
