These recipes focus on lower ratings or unreviewed OLDER recipes. Recipes need to be either reviewed with a rating of 3 stars or under or recipes which have been posted over 1 year or more and do not have any reviews. These potentially great recipes have been "marked down" - either they have a flaw that needs tweaking, been overlooked, or they are seemingly good recipes that maybe deserve a second chance
Found this in a grocery store magazine and sounds so nice I wanted to save it. Sounds like a simple, refreshing and pretty drink to serve during warm summer days. Preparation time does not includ chill or freezing time.
Another recipe I was sent on line from TOH that not only looks pretty but is differant from most pies and sounds pretty easy to put together. One of the reviews on this had some good hints to make it serve even better.
"Use a can of organic pumpkin that had sugar and all the spices in it already. Recommend having the caramel and chocolate sauces at room temp so that they can be drizzled easily over the deserts before serving. Also recommend putting the desert plates in the freezer to buy some time before the ice cream melts if you are serving a number of guests. Also make sure you have a good knife that can cut cleanly through the crust so the pieces hold together well when you scoop them out. It is an attractive and very delicious desert if served with care and a little speed."

Found this recipe in 11-2010 edition of Good Housekeeping and looks so good I want to save it. It's states - "Our version of this cranberry side is tangy, thanks to ginger and orange peel-and lower in calories" I'm thinking I might even add some chopped walnuts to give it a nice crunch.
Found this recipe on the back of a box of blue cheese and decided to try it. It's a nice blend of flavors and really sets off the asparagus and simple to make. Love that the asparagus is not over cooked and so fresh tasting;I guessed at the size can of mandarin oranges as don't have it handy. I used a small can as didn't want it to sweet - but there's a larger one if you prefer. I did add a teaspoon of balsamic vinager to mine for a little bit of bite, but since the original recipe did not call for it I left it out. Hope you like it.
Found this in a Taste of Home Magazine and tried it and was not disappointed. A nice change from your every day sandwiches, easy to make with a little kick from the curry. I filled buns from recipe #133547 and used imitation crab meat. DH & I really enjoyed it, maybe you will too.
Found this in a Rachael Ray magazine and will make for a bar b q I'm having, differant from your regular deviled eggs, something a little more special. Made these and they are just as good as they looked. Only for those of you who like smoked salmon - but if you do you'll enjoy this. I used shortstuff's recipe #24799 to prepare the eggs and worked like a charm.
This recipe was sent via email from All-recipes with a video showing onion rings that not only fry up crispy but STAY that way. The reason he reported is in the secret ingredient, instant mashed potatoes in the batter and panko crumbs.
As an update: Made these and while the taste is good and they certainly stayed crispy, for some reason I had trouble getting the coating to stick when cooking. I think maybe I didn't have the oil hot enough when I started, or maybe I needed a 2nd breading?? Not really sure, but if anyone has an idea please let me know.
This recipe came with a shortcake basket pan I purchased and we love it. The cake is not to sweet and firm enough to hold the fruit and whipped cream topping without becoming soggy. So much better than those little round discs you buy at the store. I topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, fresh strawberries, bananna and pineapple and a healthy serving of whipped crea. YUM
These little gems just arrived in my newest King Arthur Catalog and I know they'll be a HUGE hit with my family. They are savory little pancakes that look even better with a topping of black bean salad. I change the bean salad based on what I have available adding things like celery, left over corn, and even differant beans if black arn't available.
Found this in an email from Light & Tasty and I like the sound of the description attached. "This lightened-up dessert makes an amazing after-dinner treat. Break out the spoons and make sure you get a bite, because this is one dessert that won't be around for long!"

My Mom used to make a warm dressing that I loved, but has forgotten the recipe, I've been looking for something close to it and found this in Taste of Home magazine and it sounds like it comes close. Described as a tangy-sweet dressing perfect for large gatherings. Recommends keeping it warm in a slow cooker prior to serving. Good over spinach, just a little gives a lot of flavor. They even say it would be good mixed in with mashed potatoes but I'm not to sure of that. This is just the recipe for the dressing, pour over prepared spinach salad and sprinkle top with cooked and crumbled bacon. Serving is a guess as it depends on the amount you use.
Found this recipe in a Christmas book of the same name by Wanda Brunstetter. The book was sweet story about a young Amish couple and the pie sounds wonderful. Sure haven't tried it yet but want to for Christmas so am putting it here to save. Finally made this (for Spring and not Christmas) and it was very good. It is sweet and I used sweetened flaked coconut so next time may use unsweetened. But very light, fresh and pretty - a lovely desert to impress with. I'm wondering how it would be with a meringue topping!
Found this on another on-line recipe channel and looks so good with great reviews. I've been looking for the perfect soft pretzel recipe that we used to enjoy in Germany at the request of my DGS and hoping this will fit the bill- sure looks like it.
I've found several other recipes with this title but this is a little differant.
As an update: Finally got around to making this and have to admit to them not coming out real pretty (just look at my photo) just didn't have the knack for twisting them and had trouble getting them into and out of the hot water, but the taste was really good. Maybe with practice they might look better!!!
Another TOH on-line recipe. A little differant from the other recipes I've seen on here, made with light ingredients like yogurt and egg whites, but soft and chocolaty. I wanted to frost mine (which I'm know takes away from the lower fat part) and used recipe#260061
Found this in Taste of Home magazine and with rhubarb soon to be in season wanted to save it here. Hope to try it soon as sounds light and refreshing and not to difficult to make. Preparation time does not include refrigeration time. Rhubarb season and I finally got around to making this. If you like the tang of rhubarb you'll love this - I think it might be even better with strawberries added and might give that a try.
Found this recipe in one of my all time fav magazines Taste of Home, it's described as a flavor of vanilla chips and creamy filling. A luscious dessert that's a cinch to prepare. It can sometimes be garnished with shaved chocolate to dress it up. Time does not inlude 2 hours refrigeration to set.
This was sent to my email from "Light & Tasty" and is credited to LaDonna Reed of Oklahoma. She says "trying to eat lighter but still crave sweets, this moist, chocolate cake helps with that. The rich frosting, makes a decadent treat" Well sounds good and pretty simple to me though I haven't tried it yet. If you do then let me know.
There's plenty of crab cake recipes here but I saw this one in a womans day magazine and the presentation is so cute I've got to save it. These are a such cute made in mini muffin tins and "frosted" with a lemony cream cheese. What a cute and yummy sounding idea for an appy table.
In ingrediants I didn't know how to put 1/3 cup of mixed celery, onion & red pepper so it's listed with onion.
