Sunflower Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
This was good! The yogurt added a nice touch of sweetness that made it more exciting than just eating plain fruit, and the sunflower seeds added a nice crunch. Even though I'm not a big fan of celery I didn't leave it out--though I may not use it next time, that's my own personal issue. Those who like celery will enjoy the extra crunch it gives. Oh, the raisins were a nice, chewy addition as well. Overall, great texture.

Spanakopita II

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
Amazing! I was trying to replicate the spanakopita I'd had in a Greek restaurant, and I think I even liked this better. Even my Greek friend said it tasted very good. I used less onion than called for, added a bit of parmesan, and sprayed the phyllo with olive oil cooking spray. To make the triangles, I layered 3 sheets, spraying between each, and then cut them lengthwise into 3-inch strips with kitchen shears before rolling the strips football-style. I didn't have much trouble with it, really--though it is time-consuming. :)

Citrus Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2007
Wow, this didn't turn out well at all--it was very, very strong. Neither my husband or I were able to eat it. To try this recipe, I would recommend using far less garlic.

Fettuccini al Fungi

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
This recipe was INCREDIBLE, but I did make some changes, based on other reviews, my tastes, and the contents of my fridge. I used extra garlic, nearly a cup of pesto, extra cream cheese, and fat-free half & half instead of milk. I also added some pre-cooked chicken breast. The sauce was a little runny for my taste, so I thickened it by blending a spoonful of sauce with a couple tablespoons of cornstarch--it really did the trick.

Apple-Cranberry Crisp

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
This was really yummy! I made it for a Thanksgiving dessert, and it was lovely--very fall-appropriate, not TOO sweet, and wonderful flavor.

Creamed Spinach Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
Really yummy! Like another reviewer, I microwaved the spinach. I also added garlic powder and may actually use fresh garlic next time--it added a nice flavor. Also, mine came out a bit too buttery around the edges, so I may just spray the breadcrumbs with butter spray next time. But this was super easy and really tasty!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2012
Excellent, excellent! I've always shied away from making from-scratch cakes, because I've had trouble getting them to taste right or to be moist enough. But this cake was wonderful. (I didn't make the icing, so I can't speak to that.) In the interest of lowering the fat content, I reduced the oil a little and adding some applesauce and crushed pineapple. The cake came out plenty moist and rich, so I might be a little bolder in replacing some of the oil with applesauce next time. The pineapple was yummy, but I may try it without next time--just depends on what you're in the mood for. I made a layer cake with 9-inch round pans and baked them for 40 minutes at 350.

Golden State Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Excellent, and easy! I didn't really change anything, though I added garlic, chopped the mushrooms into smaller pieces and used mostly onion powder instead of onions--just my personal taste and texture preferences. It turned out a little tangier than I expected, I guess due to the sour cream...? It almost tasted like I had added some sherry or vinegar, so that would be a great addition for those who like that tang. For those who don't, maybe substituting half and half would help take it out. I also used reduced fat healthy margarine and reduced fat cream cheese, and it turned out great--didn't taste light at all.

Cranberry Oat Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
This was OK when very fresh, but it was extremely sweet, very buttery, and needed to be baked longer. I baked it for 25 minutes just because 15 seemed so short, and it still got extremely soggy within a day of baking. I also wish I had followed my instincts and added some spices like cinnamon and maybe nutmeg. Even though it was super-sweet, it ended up tasting kind of bland and boring.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2012
Really good, easy recipe for zucchini bread! I tend to be disappointed with banana and zucchini bread recipes that turn out somewhat dry. This one was perfect: moist, sweet, and just doughy enough to make me double-check to make sure I'd cooked it through (I had!).

Italian-Style Baked Crispy Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Yum! I've tried some recipes with a similar mayo-type sauce before and was unimpressed, but this was excellent--the taste was perfect! I used Miracle Whip because it's what I had on hand, and it was great--possibly because I tend to prefer it anyway, but sometimes it doesn't substitute well for mayo--this time it did! I also had to sub in pecans because I couldn't find my bag of almonds, and that worked well too. I would recommend checking the doneness though--I had some fairly thick chicken pieces and they took about 15 extra minutes to get done.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This recipe tastes just like you expect yummy potato soup to taste! It stands up to modifications and off-the-cuff cooking beautifully too. I just start with some bacon, add flour until it looks right (I like a thick soup), and then add whatever chicken broth I have in the pantry (some boullion if I don't, some milk and cheese... it always ends up tasting great.

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: May 8, 2007
Ohhh, I just made this tonight and it was amazing. It's terrifically sweet, though--my teeth almost ached by the end--so I may try it next time with a bit less sugar in the berries. But wow, great homemade flavor. This is a wonderful recipe.
