Grandad's Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2014
These were really good. I added a little vanilla and almond extract, and a tiny bit of cinnamon. For whatever reason I had to lower my heat quite a bit so they wouldn't burn, compared to where I cook my other pancakes.

Lower Fat Banana Bread I

Reviewed: May 21, 2014
So good! I added wheat flour in place of 2/3 of the white flour. Used 1/2 butter and 1/2 applesauce. Added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, pinch of nutmeg, vanilla and almond extracts. Also added nuts and choc. chips. Used a little less banana, but I think whatever on that. Also used half water and half milk. Can taste good to add cinnamon/sugar on Pam sprayed pan.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2014
Added barley in place of lentils, because I was thinking barley when I read lentils. Go figure. : / Used some chicken broth I had in the freezer, along with 2 cans of beef broth. Added chicken bouillion, and just a little red pepper flakes, fennel, saffron, and sage. If you're out of lentils, give barley a try. It was mooey delicioso!

Coconut Conch Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2014
So good. Made a couple of changes just because of what I did or didn't have on hand. Used shrimp in place of the conch. Didn't have fish stock on hand because of this, so used two containers (11 oz) of coconut water. These also replaced the coconut milk. Then added water with some bouillion to make up the difference. The soup was waterier than I thought it would be, but I'm pretty sure it was because I didn't add the coconut milk. But I also think if you want it thicker you should cook the flour, butter and half&half to more of a thickness before adding the other ingredients. With that being said, even with it being waterier it was still, oh so delicious!

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2014
This was exceptional. The recipe as is, is perfect. But since I'm a saucy person, I tripled the ingredients for this sauce. I also did this due to the fact that I had added broccoli, zucchini, onion, and celery. One reviewer suggested cutting back on the red chili flakes if anyone eating this doesn't like hot. I agree. I'm guessing the average person wouldn't mind if you cut back a teeny bit. It was just fine for my taste. Surprisingly, I'd have to agree with those who said it was quick to prepare. For me that's usually not the case, but this really was!

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
This is a great option if you're trying to cook healthier, or want to use your Weight Watcher points for something other than pasta. I would definitely bake the squash at a higher temperature next time around. I did add water in a 10x13 while baking. Makes cleaning up a lot easier. And for my own taste I like to add extra tomatoes. Would be fantastic with tomatoes from the garden! I will definitely be making this again.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2014
Even with all of the positive reviews, I was shocked at how delicious this was. I did as someone suggested and ground oatmeal in my blendtec with some italian spices to use in place of the bread crumbs. Also as someone else had stated, used Hunt's Garlic and Herb spaghetti sauce. I added some red chile flakes and fennel seed to the sauce. Anywhere between 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. each. Cut 1/4 inch eggplant slices. To drain some of the moisture from the eggplant, I put them on a paper towel, salted one side, flipped them over and salted the other side. After sitting for a while, transferred them to new, dry paper towels. As someone suggested, I dipped the eggplant in some flour first. Baked @440* for 10 minutes each side. They turned out beautifully. Served over angel hair pasta. Oh so good!!!

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
We really enjoyed this soup. I did add some cayenne powder, cumin, and crushed red pepper. Used sesame oil along with olive oil for sauteing. Loved the crunchy p-nut butter in it. Definitely add salt. Did use one 14/15 oz. can of crushed tomatoes and one can of Rotel with green chiles. Also used chicken broth in place of vege broth. This may seem like a lot of changes for a five star recipe. But they were changes made to my taste. It had nothing to do with the original recipe. I often, if not always will add a little extra here, or less there to most of my recipes, as I'm sure most of you do. The salt was the only thing, in my opinion, that should have been in the original recipe. But this comes from someone who nearly always has to add extra salt. Anywho, give it a try. It really is a unique and delicious recipe that my whole family loved.

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2014
So good! The first time I made it I had used goat cheese. Mistake. The other times, I used grated parmesan cheese. Yum. Also used Costco's ciabatta rolls. Poured some oil on cookie sheet, spread thin with a paper towel. Put the veges on pan. Put a thin layer of a balsamic glaze (Costco online) on veges. Broiled on second level from top, about 5 min. Flipped, added another thin layer of balsamic glaze. Baked another 5 min. FYI- I put the onion on a separate cookie sheet and broiled first; then took it out and put the vege cookie sheet in it's place; at the same time I then put the onion cookie sheet back in the oven, but on the rack below the veges. (To keep warm and cook a little more.)

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
So much better than regular waffles! My husband likes to make whole wheat pancakes which I'm not a big fan of, so when he said he wanted to make whole wheat waffles I wasn't very enthusiastic. Gave them a try and I couldn't believe how good they were. Don't let the ingredients turn you away from this recipe if you don't have all of them. Just make a point to buy the ones you don't have next time you go to the store. Moo-ey Delicioso!

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2013
Definitely double! I'm with the others, this is a delicious soup. You could always throw in some extra celery, carrots and onion. I did add a large garlic clove. I also had a couple containers of coconut water as part of the liquid needed. I will definitely add more rice next time. Forgot to take the chicken out of the freezer and it was still yummy delicious!

For fried green tomatoes, this is a good recipe. Still not convinced I like them.

Summer Pasta with Basil, Tomatoes and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
Wow! This simple recipe is awesome! I wondered about adding the cheese to the pasta, but it made it even more delicious. Once the pasta was drained I put it back in the pan, added 1/2 cup of the juice, tossed it, then added the cheese. I did use two forks as someone had suggested while mixing and had no problems getting it to melt all around. Oh, and the cheese I had used was Costco's Havarati sliced cheese and didn't add the mint, nor the sherry.

Juicy Peach Crisp

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2013
This recipe tasted good, but the crisp part was pretty much mush. Cooking longer wouldn't have helped.

Sweet and Spicy Green Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
A tasty change from the plain old cooked green bean. I used straight chili paste which I'm guessing is hotter than the garlic chili. I will add a little less next time. Didn't pre-cook the green beans. They turned out great!

Oven Roasted Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
Super easy recipe! To not have to bake it as long, I like to cut breast in half, then cut it in half down the middle along the skinny side. I poured the sauce over all and basted a couple of times. For a yummy light dinner cut up the cooked saucy chicken, put over cooked rice, mix around and add to salad and toss. So good.

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2013
I should have known by quite a few of the reviews that this recipe had a good chance of being a frustrating, time consuming disaster. But happy day for those of you that had success. : )

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2013
Full of flavor and easy. I changed a couple of things, but not because the recipe needed it, just my personal preference. Omitted the tomato sauce and beer. Added a can of chicken broth and some extra water towards the end. One of the cans of Rotel was hot. The soup ended up being pretty hot, but good with the sour cream on top. My chicken breast weren't thawed. I put them on top of all and they cooked up beautifully. I like to start the crock pot on high to get it going, then after an hour or so, I'll turn it back down to low.

Frog Eyed Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2013
The way it is, is perfect. But there are a couple of things I like to do differently. I like to use the crushed pineapple that is packaged in water. I then drain the liquid from this in a measuring cup and add enough water to equal the pineapple juice. I feel like if I add the other fruit it would have more of a canned fruit cocktail taste. But I do add an extra can of pineapple.(chunk, tidbits or crushed and include this juice to the measuring cup) Taking the time to make the sauce is what gives this recipe it's deliciousness. Give it a try.
