Joy's Easy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2015
I used 2 1/2 bananas that came to 1 1/3 cups of mashed to make this bread, and the sugar I used was Sugar in the Raw organic cane sugar. The bread itself turned out to be a smaller loaf than what I've made in the past, and it was easy to make because of the few ingredients it called for. It is especially good toasted with butter because the outside gets crunchy. I would definitely make this again! Thanks, Joy!

Meyer Lemon Olive Oil and Honey Chevre Spread

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2015
This is my review from 2/24/10---and it STILL remains a favorite of ours! This is a spread I have made countless times. The flavor is subtle and delectable and is suited to a variety of breads or crackers. I usually make it in small batches, using the 4- or 5-oz packages of chevre because there are usually just the two of us! It is a perfect accompaniment to a glass of wine before dinner. When my youngest granddaughter sees it now, she just goes nuts because she can hardly wait for tastes! I could never thank Celeste enough for aiding my new addiction to meyer lemon olive oil--could never be without it! And this is a perfect way to use it!

Quick Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2015
Rolls turned into coffee cake because I couldn't make the dough roll up! I spread the dough on a very well floured piece of parchment paper using a spatula because there was no way of rolling it because it was so wet. I ended up just plopping pieces into the prepared pan and baked it as written. In her personal recipe Shauna said that she has trouble rolling out dough. I usually don't, but with this recipe she is not alone! I loved the crunch of the generous cinnamon sugar on the bottom of the "rolls" and the taste is good, though I was a little put off by not having the usual yeast rolls. I know this will be gone in a heartbeat as soon as my family gets hold of it! This was an experiment worth making!

Mark's Surprise Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2015
I used red bell pepper rather than green (personal preference), and I did cut back on the pepper, salt, and cayenne to a level that I thought my granddaughters could handle. Otherwise, I followed the recipe. If you read the first review, you'll see that AR fixed a typo in their ingredients!

Cinnamon Nutella® No-Bake Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2015
The girls who will be eating these will LOVE these! The cookies are easy to make and taste yummy. I followed some ideas given by Marie C. on the Buzz and used the recipe as a liner for bird nests for Easter. I used a small cookie scoop with the dough leveled off and then free-formed a nest with them. After they cooled, I used a recipe for the nests found here on AR and put some of that in a muffin tin, placing the nest inside that. Using a knife I pushed up the chow mein noodles to hold around the nest. They came out from the muffin tin easily after refrigeration with a nudge from a table knife. These will be place cards for Easter dinner. Thanks, sueb for the yummy recipe!

Raspberry Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2015
I did make one change: I used lemon olive oil in place of the vegetable oil. Otherwise I followed directions. Yummy stuff! Do not try this if you are iffy about balsamic vinegar! I loved this and know that I have other family members (not hubby, however) who'll love this! Thanks, WeatherMaven!

Grilled Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2015
Excellent! I had one chicken breast left over from our previous dinner, so I grilled this one as written with the exception that I didn't slice the chicken. I'd think that had I thinly sliced the chicken and cooked it for that long on each side that it'd have been way overcooked. As it was, this was wonderful! This time I cut the recipe to 1 serving, but I almost wish I had a little more marinade that I could save off before adding the chicken so that I could drizzle it over some of the side dishes. I'll do that next time. You don't need to change a thing in the proportions of this recipe! Thanks, Jennifer!

Chicken Francesa

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2015
We very much enjoyed our dinner, and we have some leftovers! That's good for us! I used a package of Costco organic chicken breasts that I cut in half horizontally and did not pound out. I cut the other ingredients in half, and they were just right. I used panko crumbs, and I used 2 tablespoons of Grand Marnier on top. I do think that 25 minutes at 350 would be too much for what I made, so if the chicken were to be pounded out to 1/4 inch, I wouldn't want to bake it for that long. As it was, I baked mine for about 15 minutes at 350. We will definitely have this again, and I'd serve it for company any time! Thanks, NANNYMM!

Quick and Easy Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2015
This was a big hit with my family! I followed the recipe exactly except for cutting it down to 6 servings, and those servings fit into 3 cups as shown in my photo. Perfect! This was easy, and it really was best served either right after making it or within several hours (overnight made it soggy). This would be a great and easy dessert to serve after a heavy meal! Thanks, Brittany (and your mom)!

Quick and Yummy Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2015
I can understand why this recipe would catch the fancy of eaters because who doesn't love all those ingredients? For some reason it just didn't "do" it for us. I'm not sure if it was merely our taste buds on that day or what, but we said that it was OK. I don't want to turn anyone away from making this because what is good for one may not be for another. So give this a try!

Strawberry-Basil Compote

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2015
When I made this as written, I served it over some angel food cake. I think the flavors got lost in there and that it would be much better served over ice cream so that the flavors didn't get absorbed into the cake. I loved the brightness that the white balsamic gave this, and the basil was just perfect with it! Thanks, jen!

Buttermilk Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2015
I did make this with butter rather than shortening, but otherwise I followed the recipe for this. This is a nice, basic banana bread, and I know that the family members who will eat this will love it warmed up with some butter slathered on it! Thanks, MAGDIEGO! EDIT I think this could be missing a touch of salt! That could make the difference for me.

Classic Minnesota Wild Rice Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2015
I love wild rice salads, and this was a very tasty one. I left out water chestnuts (not my favorite food item), but otherwise I kept to the recipe. I used this to extend some leftovers, and I was a happy camper! My rice, by the way, was from Wisconsin (sorry Minnesota!), and it was a darker variety than what I'm normally used to. I would definitely make this again! I think apples would be good with this, too. Thanks, Scott N!

Chicken Rollatina

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2015
I pared down the recipe to fit one package of Costco chicken, but otherwise I followed the recipe and proportions. I think I overcooked it in the 45 minutes I baked it because it was kind of dry, but my husband liked it that way. I thought it needed more seasoning and more mushrooms for sure, but I suppose that is truly in the eyes of the eater! We did enjoy our dinner tonight, so thanks, Aimes!

Cashew Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2015
I made a partial batch of this to see if it matched the cashew butter I've been buying. It's close! I did have to add a little more oil than called for, but that was just a personal option because it was probably good enough as written. Thank you, Tony Carriere! I'm happy to see how easy it was to make this!

Salmon Salad Spread

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2015
First of all I cut the recipe down to 1/4 of the ingredients. I had a touch of salmon left over from last night's dinner and wanted to use that up, but it wasn't enough so I also had a 7-oz can of tuna that I used, too. Also I opted for the submitter's suggestion of using grapes. I portioned out all the ingredients from the mayo down and added some to the salmon and the rest to the tuna for our lunch today. Both were good, though my husband preferred the mix with the tuna. This is a nice take of the protein salad mixes that are out there. I would make this again! Thanks for our lunch, CARLISFAMILY!

Banana Peanut Butter Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2015
I made half a batch that yielded 8 muffins. I baked them at 400 for 17 minutes. These are easy to make and really good just minutes from the oven! I know some little girls who will love these because I did! There are only 7 left for them! Thanks, Ann!

Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2015
I made two changes to this: I didn't let it sit for more than just a couple of hours, and I didn't mince it up into cracker-size form. I only needed to have a good base for some leftover turkey that I had, and this fit the bill. I'd make this again. Thanks, Gloria Burris!

Amazing Pecan Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2015
I didn't use foil but rather just greased the pan well, and there were no problems with it coming out ok. My family and friends said I could make this any time I wanted! Thanks, DWBH!
