Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
This was a very easy recipe and turned out great. I followed the directions and only needed to roll the cookies in powdered sugar once. It doesn't get much easier than this one.

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
Fantastic turkey soup recipe. If you like Byerly's wild rice turkey soup--this is a close second if you add slivered almonds to the recipe. I would also suggest reducing the number of onions to 1 1/2 or 2 at the most and adding some garlic. Yum. My father, husband and two year old son all loved it.

Scrumptious Salisbury Steak in Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
This was a great recipe. I made a couple changes to the steak and to the gravy. I added worcestershire sauce to the patties and replaced the 2 T onion with the same amount of dried minced onion. I didn't have poultry seasoning on hand, so to replace it, I added a bit of sage, thyme and marjoram. For the gravy, I added an extra teaspoon of beef boullion granules and a can of cream of mushroom soup--as you can imagine, I had to add a bit more milk to thin the gravy. My husband and two year old both loved this recipe--we will definitely make it again.

Craving Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
These were an interesting change of pace--not exactly cookie consistency, but still delicious. A great way to use up leftover bananas. I used two bananas, 1/2 c of chocolate chips and natural pb to make mine. I agree with another reviewer to flatten the cookies before you bake them. I will make them again.

Lasagne Verdi al Forno

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
I LOVE the bechamel sauce in this lasagna. I used store bought boil noodles and skipped the chicken livers. The lasagna has a very interesting flavor--like no other lasagna I've had. My husband really enjoyed it. Next time, I would use store bought sauce instead of tomato paste and beef stock. The bechamel sauce is what really makes this lasagna.

Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
This one is a good family staple. My husband and two year old both really liked it. I added a little over a teaspoon of beef bouillon granules to boost the flavor, as well as a few dashes of pepper. A good busy night recipe.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
This is a great recipe. I made it into muffins (batter made 15 muffins) and baked them for 24 min as others suggested. I also mashed the bananas (used 3, instead of 2) and added 1 t of cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. The muffins are flavorful and light and fluffy--that surprised me most. When I think of banana bread, I think of dense, moist and heavy. If that's what you are looking for, this is not the recipe for you. If you want your muffins/bread delicious and fluffy, make this recipe.

Cathy's Creamy Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
This recipe was pretty good, but not great. I did modify it a bit. I used 4 chicken breasts and cut them into bite sized pieces. I used 6 pieces of swiss cheese instead of 8. I used pinot grigio for the white wine, which was quite good. On top I put an entire box of reduced sodium stove top stuffing. I drizzled about 1/2 cup melted butter on top of the whole thing--including the stuffing. Without the butter on the stuffing, it would have been too crunchy. I baked the whole thing for about 40 min. My husband, dad and 2 yr old son liked it, but it isn't a favorite dish.

Buttery Herb Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I thought this was pretty good. I made a few changes. First, I doubled the recipe and added 2t of minced jar garlic to the butter and sauteed flour-dusted chicken in the butter before the mushrooms (I used fresh.) I left out the egg. I had to add a bit of 1% milk at the end b/c it was too thick. I could have added more milk, it still seemed a bit thick, but the flavor was great. My guests (4 adults and 3 kids under age 7) really liked it. Thanks for a great recipe.

Make Ahead French Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
My husband, 3 year old and I thought this was great. I modified the recipe a bit. Here's what I did. I made a loaf of pillsbury refrigerated french loaf, let it cool and sliced it into slightly more than 1" slices. I sprayed a glass 9x13 pan with Pam. I added cinnamon to the batter. I gave each slice a long dip in the batter on each side and placed it in the pan. I poured more batter over each slice and put a little in the bottom of the pan--enough to coat the entire bottom of the pan. In the morning, all the batter had been soaked up. I flipped each piece and poured the topping over it. I left the pecans out of the topping and cut the sugar in half. I baked it for 37 min and broiled it on high for the last 3 min or so (you have to watch it to make sure it doesn't burn.) I still had enough batter to make at least one more pan full--maybe I'll do that next time. It was delicious--it wasn't soggy and didn't stick to the pan. Thanks for the recipe.

Chicken Tetrazzini IV

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
I thought this recipe was pretty good--it could have used a bit of more flavor--perhaps garlic, more pepper or more sherry? I'd probably add more sherry next time. I doubled the sauce (exactly the same proportions as was called for in the recipe.) I sauteed the chicken in garlic and then added portabella mushrooms to the chicken in addition to two small cans of mushrooms. If you are looking for a yummy, creamy chicken pasta, this is a good one. My husband and 3 year old both liked it too. And I have a TON leftover.

Bolognese Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
I thought this was a great recipe. Next time I think I'll add some parmesan. It was a bit on the acidic side, but still very delicious. I also browned the bacon first, then cooked the onion, carrot and celery in the bacon grease. Then added the meat and garlic and followed the recipe. I also substituted crushed tomatoes, b/c my husband doesn't like chunks of tomato in his sauce. My 11 month old couldn't eat this fast enough. My husband and 4 year old liked it too. I really liked the subtle wine flavor. I'm sure it will taste even better on day 2...

Pineapple Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
I used this recipe to make muffins. They were great--I got lots of compliments on them at work. I would not make these without nuts. I would cut back a bit on the sugar next time--it was just too much sugar. I used 2 overripe bananas and one green banana, as well as fresh pineapple. The recipe made 30 muffins--and it took 32 min to bake the muffins. I will make this recipe again.

Butterscotch Banana Drops

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
These were pretty good. A good use of overripe bananas. I added a tsp of vanilla--I think it could have used some cinnamon. My husband liked these a lot. We'll see what the co-workers think tomorrow

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
My family enjoyed the sandwiches. It's not exactly like a Chicago-style Italian beef, but it's still delicious. I used 3 cups of beef stock (no salt added) and about 1/2 a cup of zinfandel for the liquid instead of water. I also used 2 packages of italian dressing, as others suggested. I used a chuck roast and it turned out great. My roast was just over 4 pounds and it cooked fairly quickly. It was done within 7 hours. I shredded it at 7 hours and turned the crockpot down to low/warm for another hour and a half or so. I'll make this again.

Chicken 'n' Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
My family loved this tonight. I modified it slightly--I used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup (low sodium) and increased the milk to one cup. I used crushed potato chips instead of the french-fried onions. I also used refrigerated biscuits. It came out great. This recipe will now be part of our regular menu!

Thai Green Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2010
I would give this 4 1/2 stars, if I could. I cut back the sugar a bit and substituted chopped yellow onion for the green onion and it turned out great. I also added one potato, one sweet potato, zucchini and shredded carrots. You could add pretty much anything and it would be great. Thanks for the recipe!

Banana Cake IX

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
Delicious! Especially with a little cool whip on top. I used 1 stick of salted butter for the shortening/salt. Turned out great. I'll make this again when I need to use old bananas. Thanks for the recipe.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
This is the best banana bread I've ever made. I made a few minor changes: I used 4 bananas instead of 3, added 1 tsp vanilla, added 1 tsp cinnamon and subbed 1/2c of the white sugar for 1/2c brown sugar. It is amazing. My husband and 2 year old both ate 3 pieces for breakfast. Thanks for the great recipe!

Couscous Salad with Dried Cherries

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
This recipe was very good and everyone in my family liked it, but it isn't quite a 5 star dish in my opinion. Maybe my balsamic vinegar is a little off, but the flavor was slightly off. That being said, I will make this again, but try using a different balsamic or perhaps a little less.
