really delicious but I substitute regular cream of mushroom soup and add about 1/2 cup of sour cream about 10 minutes before serving. No cream cheese!

Absolutely delicious! After reading the reviews, I used fresh tomates and added grated parmesan cheese just before eating. Next time I will add a little more spinach. I will definitely make this again, one of my new favorites!

Honey Nut Granola

Betty Ann's rating

Really delicious! My only disappointment was that it didn't stick together more. I added more honey, less cinnamon, no sunflower seeds. I liked the chewiness that craisins and golden raisins add to the granola. It is really good to eat with vanilla yogurt layered with fresh fruit(strawberries/peaches). YUMMY!!

I made these with left over turkey. I used the onion chive cream cheese spread(about 2/3 of the container). I added a couple tablespoons of milk. I placed the mixture on half of the crescent roll and folded over-pinching the edges with a fork. they baked beautifully. Great flavor. A new favorite. So quick and easy.

Yummy, great tex-mex flavor. I used tomatoes with green chiles in place of salsa. I also added cooked chicken and northern beans(what I happen to have). Really great with corn bread. This recipe is a keeper!!!

Tangy Honey-Glazed Ham

Betty Ann's rating

This honey glazed ham was wonderful. I had a spiral ham. It was moist and yet nicely browned on the edges. I used a cooking bag. Basting the last 20 minutes with the glaze really gave the ham a tangy sweet flavor. This recipe is a keeper. I'll always glaze my ham from now on,using this recipe of course!!

Blonde Brownies III

Betty Ann's rating

Excellent!! I just made them and they are delicious warm from oven!! I followed some of the hints others suggested- 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 tsp vanilla, only 2 cups brown sugar. I also baked them in 9x13 cake pan. The walnuts and chocolate chips are what make it a great blonde brownie!! Yummy in my tummy!

Not wild about this. Probably won't make it again. Easy and quick to put together-love to use the crockpot. The chicken was very tender and had pretty good flavor, the pineapple was saturated with all the flavors(didn't taste like pineapple). Sorry
