Crumby Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
Very good--will make again. I did not think these were bland at all. However, it did take quite a bit longer to cook than it says.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole IV

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
This tasted very good, but was very runny at first. I added some cracker crumbs to try and absorb some of the extra liquid and I cooked it at 400° for the last ten minutes; that did the trick. However, like the other reviews suggest, I will cook the chicken before hand and make sure the broccoli is well-thawed before cooking.

Never Fail Biscuits

Reviewed: May 1, 2007
My biscuits looked absolutely great, but they tasted funny! When I made the recipe, it was supposed to make four servings and it called for 4 teaspoons of baking powder. I'm a new cook and I used baking soda instead of baking powder (didn't have powder). I just did some research and read that baking soda is four times as strong as baking powder. Perhaps this is why my biscuits tasted funny? I guess I will have to be more careful next time when adding ingredients. Other than this, they were great. I'll definitely try them again. UPDATE: when baking powder and not baking soda is used, these biscuits are perfect. I’ve never tried another biscuit recipe. :)

My Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
I enjoyed this dish. I did some additional seasoning with basil, oregano, and garlic salt. I also used canned green beans and diced tomatoes since that was what I had on hand. It still turned out great though!

Clark Gable Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2007
Because half of the reviewers seemed to like the recipe as-is while half seemed to call for a reduction in the baking powder, I decided to be optimistic and try the recipe as-is. But---the baking powder definitely needs to be reduced. I tried one of the pancakes plain and all I could taste was the baking powder; however, I added syrup and that helped to mask a lot of the taste. I think that this is a good recipe, but it just needs to be tweaked a bit.

Chris' Bay Area Burger

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2007
Like another reviewer, I wanted to keep this recipe “Italian.” I sprinkled some shredded Mozzarella cheese on top of the burger along with sautéed mushrooms and yellow peppers. I didn’t have any Italian bread so I had to use a hamburger bun, but I spread spaghetti sauce on the bottom and added some more to the top of the burger. I also sprinkled some additional basil and some Italian seasoning on the sauce. Next time I will sauté onion and garlic instead of the pepper. Wine goes well with this--I served this with a Shiraz. Great recipe!

Tuna Fish Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
Great recipe. I doubled it for a total of eight servings and added an extra can of tuna because "as is", the mixture seemed to be predominantly celery and onion and I like there to be a bit more tuna than "extras." I used green onion, Italian parsley, and only 3 tablespoons or so mayonnaise. Also, I put in 1/2 tablespoon garlic powder instead of 1/2 teaspoon. Tastes great--fresh parsley is a must.

Platski

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
I had trouble getting my pancakes to be thin. I don’t think I shredded them thinly enough; I shredded them using the “medium” holes in the shredder rather than the smallest ones. This seemed like a good recipe, but it didn’t exactly suit my palate.

Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
These were great and smelled fabulous! I made a big batch and froze them for future eating. Definitely a keeper!

Carrot Rice Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
This has an unusual taste. I didn't care for it too much; for me it might be something to have as a side dish once in a great while, but I could definitely live without this recipe... It wasn't so much that it was a bad recipe, it was just that the taste didn't suit my palate.

Ukrainian Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
I didn't like this and ended up throwing most of it away. I boiled the cabbage to try and remove the leaves, but I used red cabbage and it ended up turning a blue color (sort of unappetizing and probably partly my fault for not doing proper research). This lacked flavor, and while I did add some things to try and fix this, it didn't do much to correct the problem. Sorry, I just don't think Eastern European food is my thing.

Easy Pizza Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Yum! I could just eat the sauce by itself. I added extra spices and garlic and used less water and oil. Perfect with these changes!

Ranch Crispy Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
This was great! Like other reviewers, I added a dash of paprika and spread mayo on the chicken before coating it with breadcrumbs. I made this for my sisters and although one of my sisters was slightly disgusted at the prospect of eating mayo with chicken, it came out perfect and didn't taste like mayo (you’d never even know it had mayo to begin with in fact)! I've made it a few times and it will be a staple in my home.

Baked Mushrooms

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
This is such a good recipe--with a few changes. I replaced the green bell pepper with diced red bell pepper, added a zucchini, and used red onion. I added a few pinches of crushed red pepper, doubled the garlic (or tripled!--my fiancé and I love garlic!), doubled the Italian seasoning, added a few sprinkles of rosemary and replaced the seasoning salt with half the amount of regular salt (didn't have seasoning salt). Also, I omitted the water, added a few splashes of the pinot noir we were having with dinner, and used three to four tablespoons of light butter. For four servings, I baked the dish for approximately 30-35 minutes and cooked covered for the first 15. There was a bit more liquid than I cared for, so I believe I will leave it uncovered the next time.

Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
I was looking for a recipe that would allow me to use my two leftover bananas; most banana bread recipes called for many more than two bananas, but luckily I found this cookie recipe! I omitted the dates (didn't have any), used quick oats instead of rolled (didn't have any rolled oats), added one tsp. cinnamon, 3/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1/8 tsp. ginger, and a few pinches of salt. I added some sunflower seeds to half the batch for some added texture/healthiness. Next time I will substitute applesauce for the oil, but these were great how I made them. Thanks for a great (and thankfully healthy) cookie recipe!

Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
This is a good recipe, but the sauce is too runny and needs to be thickened. I added two tablespoons of flour, but that still wasn't enough as I ended up having what looked like pork chops in water. I will add more flour next time or possibly try cornstarch.

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
I took the advice of another reviewer and browned the chicken, then added chicken broth and cooked over medium heat until done. I made a roux by mixing approximately 1 c. cold water with 1 T. flour, then stirred it into the remaining chicken broth. The chicken ended up being VERY moist. I served this over spaghetti noodles, but will try serving over mashed potatoes next time (just didn’t feel like making them this time around :) ).

Baked Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
This recipe got great reviews when I made it for my sisters. I dipped the chicken in egg instead of butter and used less cheese, but the nuggets were still great. I'll be making them again.

Blackened Chicken

Good recipe. I added fresh garlic and served over rice with edamame as a side dish. I will make again.
