Peanut Butter Treats™

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
I made these using chunky peanut butter, and I spread melted semi-sweet chocolate mixed with a little corn syrup on top. I usually don't like Rice Krispie treats, but with the addition of the peanut butter and chocolate, they were delicious! Quick, easy snack.

Mom's Incredible Spinach Gratin

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
Delicious! I made 1/3 of the recipe using a 16-ounce bag of spinach. I used mozzarella cheese instead of gruyere and whole milk instead of cream. This is now my favorite spinach recipe. Thanks, Nurse Ellen!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
Surprisingly good! I added 1/2 tsp. baking soda and 1/2 tsp. baking powder and substituted 1/2 cup applesauce for the oil and Splenda for the sugar. I didn't add chocolate chips. Cutting out the oil, sugar and chocolate chips reduces the brownies to only 40 calories each. These are the best low-fat, low-calorie brownies I've ever eaten. They taste even better with a dollop of Cool Whip on top. NOTE: These need to be refrigerated. I had a few left over, which I left on the kitchen table for a few days, and they got moldy...yuck!

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
I mix up a big batch of this seasoning, store it in a jar in the fridge, and use it whenever I make tacos. I add 3 tablespoons mix and 2/3 cup water to each pound of ground meat (hamburger or turkey breast). It tastes very similar to packaged taco seasoning mix, but much better. I'll never buy the packaged mix again. Thanks for the great recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
This soup is not only delicious, it's also very quick and easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly, except I used more ham and omitted the salt because the ham was very salty, and it came out great. Thanks for the recipe....it's a definite keeper!

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
I cut the recipe in half and made 10 large tortillas. I used olive oil instead of shortening, and I increased the amount of water because the dough was very dry. After forming the dough into balls, I let it sit for about 1/2 hour. The dough was very easy to work with and not sticky at all, and I was able to roll the tortillas paper thin. They fried up beautifully. Thanks for the great recipe: I'm going to use it often!

Turkey Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
Delicious!! I used a smoked turkey leg (which I diced), Wacky Mac spiral noodles, yellow onion, light mayo, and light sour cream instead of yogurt. I'm sure I'll make this again and often. Thanks for the great recipe!

Four Layer Delight

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
This is the same recipe I've been making for many years, and it always comes out good. I made only half a recipe which fit perfectly in a 9-inch pie pan. I used chocolate pudding and sprinkled the top with toffee bits.

Cassata Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
I made my cassata cake using this recipe for the cake and syrup parts only. The cake was very light and moist. For the filling, I used 2 lbs. ricotta cheese, 1 cup confectioners' sugar, 1 tsp. rum extract, 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips & 1/4 cup chopped maraschino cherries. For the frosting, I used the "Cassata alla Siciliana" recipe on this site. This cake takes a considerable amount of time and work to make, but it's worth it.

Pumpkin Pie Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
I made the recipe as written. I didn't care for the crust. It came out very hard and dry. The filling was OK, except I didn't care for the cloves, which gave it slightly bitter taste. I'd much rather have traditional pumpkin pie, which is about the same amount of work....less work if you use a pre-made pie crust. Won't make again.

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
These came out GREAT! I like the idea of using Pam instead of oil, and they came out as good or better than the ones I made w/oil. I didn't use parchment paper, just sprayed the plate w/Pam. Depending on how thin the slices were, they took anywhere from 3-1/2 to 8 minutes to cook. I cooked them until they turned brown, and they got very crispy. Thanks for the great recipe, Bobbi!

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
These came out GREAT! I used the custom recipe from Bobbi which calls for Pam cooking spray instead of oil. I didn't use parchment paper, just sprayed the plate w/Pam. Depending on how thin the slices were, they took anywhere from 3-1/2 to 8 minutes to cook. I cooked them until they turned brown, and they got very crispy. Thanks for the great recipe, Jessica!

1-2-3 Vegetable Chili

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
I used 3 small zucchinis, which was about 5 cups, so I added a couple small cans of tomato sauce. I also increased the chili powder to 1 tablespoon. This is a very delicious, healthy meal. I'm sure I'll make this often.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
I used 3/4 tsp. anise extract instead of caraway seeds and 2 cups raisins and 1 cup craisins, but 2 cups of fruit total would have been plenty. I only baked it for 60 minutes, and it was perfectly done. Very good taste and nice texture; tasted even better the next day. Good recipe!

Nana Dot's Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2010
I substituted 3/4 tsp. anise extract for caraway seeds. Recipe made 2 small loaves, which tasted very good; more like a scone or muffin texture. It was moister and tasted even better after a couple of days. Good recipe!

Chocolate Mint Dessert Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
I substituted I Tbs. water, 1/2 tsp. mint extract and 3 drops green food coloring for the creme de menthe liqueur (as suggested on the Hershey's web site). The cream center and glaze are good, and everything tastes OK together, but the brownie part is very dry and kind of tasteless. A little vanilla would help, but I would probably just use a different brownie recipe. Even a brownie mix (ugh!) would be better.

Coffee Shake

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Frap-a-licious! I used 1/2 cup light vanilla soy milk, increased the coffee to about a tablespoon and used Splenda instead of sugar. It was low fat and low cal, but tasted great! I'll definitely make this again and often. Thanks for the great recipe!!

Zucchini Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
The first time I made this, I took reviewers' advice & drained the zucchini. It came out very dry and oniony. The next time, I didn't drain the zucchini, sauted the onion in a little butter before adding it, and only used 1 cup cheese which I mixed in (I didn't put any cheese on top). I baked it in a souffle dish for 1 hour uncovered, and it came out great! My daughter keeps asking me when I'm going to make this again.

Sunshine Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
These were a nice change from a plain biscuit. I followed the recipe exactly, and they came out very light and had a nice corn taste. I made half a recipe, which made a baking sheet full of biscuits.
