Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
Tastes great, I could only stuff 4 peppers, though.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: May 5, 2012
These are indeed very good! I did modify to my liking as I went, though. I used 2 mangoes, 2 avocados, 1/2 finely minced red onion and no olive oil. The rest are the same. This is a keeper and I am posting the tweaked version on the website.

Cut-Out Cookies Made with Oat Flour

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
These were very easy to make (my 4-year-old could do it) and had good flavors. Followed the recipe exactly and came out looking and perfect after 7 minutes. We will definitely make them again.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
We normally don't like sloppy joes but I made this for friends who got together to help us put a swing set together. Everyone like it a lot including my hubby who doesn't like sloppy joes too much because it's too sweet. I made it with organic ketchup which has less sugar than the normal ketchup. If I were to make this with normal ketchup, I would reduce the amount of brown sugar even more so it's not so sweet. Also, I used very good quality garlic powder (makes a huge difference). A keeper!

Spiced Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
Very good recipe. I actually cooked this in my slow cooker all day. I had a 4 lb. chuck roast which I salted and peppered, seared all sides in my pan and didn't bother to put flour on it at all. I then put the meat in my crock pot and put the rest of the ingredients and cooked all day. After 6 hours, I shredded the beef and put it back in the crock pot to absorb all the flavors. When we had dinner around 7 PM, it was very juicy, moist and flavorful. A keeper recipe.

Lemon Pie Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
After reading some reviews, I had decided to 1.5 times the filling and keep the crust the way it is. These were amazingly delicious. I have tried different lemon bar recipes but always found them to be too strong of egg flavors or something else, not lemony enough for me. These are perfect. I will be making this over and over again. Now, only if I can stop myself from eating more than one bar at a time...

Strawberry and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Very good salad, I did think that it made way too much dressing for the salad. In fact, next time, I would only use 1/4 of the dressing. Thanks for the recipe!

New Orleans Corn Bisque with Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
This was such an easy recipe to follow and turned out pretty well. It was quick to make as well. I used smoked sausage with no casing (my kids and I don't care for the casing) and used a half olive oil and a half butter as well as almond milk in stead of regular milk because that's what I had. I was afraid that the flavor was going to be off because of the almond milk but it tasted pretty good, thanks to the smoked sausage. We all liked it. I did not serve it with cheddar cheese or parsley but it tasted good anyway.

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
This was a good pie recipe. I had actually made a 10" pie but kept all the ingredients the same and it worked out great. I personally don't care for the smell of rhubarb so next time, I will add some lemon juice and/or lemon zest to kill/mask the smell of rhubarb. Or maybe some orange juice and/or zest. My kids and hubby were very happy with the pie, though.

Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
I made these with my boys (3 & 5) this morning. They were very easy to make and very tasty. They are going very quickly as I type this review. I will make them again with my boys. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Creamy Chicken on Linguine

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
I saw this recipe on the website and had to make it for dinner. It was very delicious. My kids loved it (and they are picky eaters) and we the parents also liked it. I used half & half instead of heavy cream and milk but didn't miss out on the flavor. I had also run out of Parmesan-Reggiano so I used my cheap Kraft Parmesan cheese but it tasted fine (more economical, I guess.) Definitely will make it again. Thanks!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
These are the best, they are so yummy. Since I didn't have a big enough surface to make one huge rectangle shape, I cut the dough in half and made 2 rectangles and still rolled it the way I would have if they were big. Worked out perfectly and they were so good this is a keeper recipe.

Jim's Cheddar Onion Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
Though it's not a traditional Irish soda bread recipe, this ended up being my favorite soda bread recipe. I have tried 3 or so Irish soda bread recipes in the past but never found any of them to be interesting enough to try making them again. Not this one!! I used Irish sharp cheddar cheese and fresh onions to make the bread and we just loved it. I will definitely make them again, maybe adding fresh herbs next time like chives or dill.

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
I tried this recipe because it was rated so high AND I like Pam Anderson's recipes. Boy, am I glad I did. I halved the amount of pork I used because I was only cooking for 4 (and we still have lots of left over) but used the full amount of everything else (stuffing and sauce etc.) for the pork. It tasted soooooo good and I am not even a pork easter. I hardly cook pork because I cannot stand the smell of it but this tasted really good and I didn't notice the odor/smell I dislike of pork. I will be making it again.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
Addictive is right, these were really good and addictive. Even my picky, not so adventurous 4-year-old ate the whole thing. They were super easy and quick to make as well.

Grandma McAndrews' Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
I have tried different Irish soda bread recipes only to be disappointed in the past but this one is so good I might end my journey to find the best Irish soda bread recipe now if I can stop being curious :) I followed the recipe exactly but used currants instead of raisins which shouldn't have changed the end result at all. It's a big keeper!

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 19, 2012
This really was the best broccoli salad I have ever made/had. I was too lazy to cook the bacon so I added about 1/3 cup of bacon bits and that was perfectly fine. I also replaced white sugar with raw cane sugar A.K.A. Sucanat. My 7-year-old loved it so much he ate a huge bowl full which made it worthwhile for me. I will be making this soon in the near future for sure.

Just made these this morning for breakfast! Very fluffy and yummy with just right amount of flavors. I also reduced the baking powder to 1 tablespoon (3 teaspoons) and it was just right. Will make them again.
