Just made these as an appetizer for a big family dinner. I cranked up the cream cheese spread by using Paula Deen's cheese dip recipe. I only had a little bit of plain cream cheese so I spread it out by adding mayonnaise, shredded cheese, and black pepper, salt and dried parsley. I used fresh spinach instead of lettuce and it was yummy! The b"

I have made this recipe twice and both times it was ecstatically delicious. This is guilt-free snacking! The first time I followed the amounts exactly but I was overwhelmed by the fresh garlic (it was still yummy). Last time I probably put half the amount of garlic, if that. I probably overdid the lemon because I just squeezed it directly into"

This was really good and I didn't even have all the ingredients! I took the advice of another reviewer to experiment with white beans and used garbanzo beans...it came out good, but I definitely will use lentils next time. I also didn't have celery, cumin, nutmeg or any peppers. I used curry powder, red pepper flakes and tossed in whole grape"

This was a nice change from our normal breakfast menu. I just eye-balled the cream until there was enough to soak up the cheese. I wish I had baked the tomatoes a bit first because they were the slightest bit cold still, even after being left out since I started everything. I was missing the normal english muffin but it was nice to not be so fu"

I only had 5 oz. of Portuguese sausage so I had to half the recipe. I didn't have beans to soak overnight so used canned kidney beans and didn't need to wait for them to cook. I just went on to the next step to wait for the kale to wilt and the potatoes to get tender. Next time I will not cut the potatoes so small, I think about 1 inch parts wo"

I tried this to add something new to our weekly family barbeques. It was a hit. I didn't have cilantro so I skipped that and I used powdered garlic, but I had fresh ginger and sweet Maui onion grated into the marinade and it was delicious! I also only put a few shakes of hot sauce in it so my kids and mom could eat it (they don't like spicy). "

Delicious! My family gobbled it up in one night! I made an easier version. I boiled the frozen peas and spinach together and just drained the water. I only had one box of pasta (penne) so I just used that. I didn't use a food processor at all. I added additional oil to a second pan and sauteed the pine nuts. After I added the pesto I decid...
