Kingman's Vegan Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Based on previous reviews, I cut the sugar by half. I also used ground flax instead of the seeds, substituted 1 cup of spelt flour for white flour, and added in a cup of raisins. I made mini muffins (came out to 4 dozen exactly). I baked them for 14 minutes and debating if I should have baked them longer. They came out heavy but tasty.

Easy Curry Couscous

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2011
I followed this recipe exactly with two minor changes. First, I microwaved the broth mixture in a microwave safe bowl and added the couscous to it afterward. Second, I omitted the salt since I used bouillon cubes to make the vegetable broth and they are salty. This recipe came out great! I definitely recommend adding the almonds!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
I have to agree with another reviewer...the texture of the chicken wasn't very appealing. My family ate it but no one ate the leftovers, telling me that it was just an OK dish. I think next time I will coat the chicken with oil and bake the chicken at a high temperature (450) for 10-15 minutes first to sear the outside, then bake it at the lower temperature.

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
I picked this recipe because of the great reviews it was getting - and I discovered there was a reason for its high rating! I had to roast a 9 lb boneless rib roast, and was unsure if the recipe would fit, but it did. I added a cup and a half of water to the pan, as suggested by another rater, to make the au jus sauce afterward. For this size meat, I probably should have let it sit for longer than an hour before roasting it, but it still came out fabulous. After an hour, the internal temp was well below 100 deg F. But, after about 2 hours with the oven off, the internal temp had peaked at 125 degF. The oven temperature was 175 degF when I turned it back on again. I only waiting 2 hours as opposed to 3 hours to turn the oven on again. From the time I turned the oven back on to when the internal temp reached 140degF was about 30 minutes. I took the roast out and it was PERFECT! I deglazed the roasting pan with about a cup of red wine to make the sauce and it was delicious. I highly recommend!

Coconut-Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
Great recipe! I followed the directions, except used fat free half and half because I didn't have any cream. I piped the frosting onto carrot cake cupcakes. Everyone LOVED them!

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Finally an easy and delicious crab cake recipe! I made the crab cakes for our Italian Christmas Eve Fish dinner and everyone LOVED them. I quadrupled the recipe (used 4 cans of crab meat) and got about 20 crab cakes out of it. I also only used 2 and 2/3 sleeves of Ritz crackers and added fresh chopped parsley for some more flavor. I also breaded the cakes with ground corn flakes instead of the bread crumbs and they came out nice and crunchy! The cakes were great, but the aioli sauce made them the hit! Here is the recipe again: 3/4 c mayo, 3 cloves garlic minced, 2 1/2 tbsp. lemon juice, 3/4 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp. pepper Mix all together and chill. I would reduce the salt to 1/2 tsp though next time since it seemed a bit too salty for my taste.

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This was a great recipe! I doubled it and made 2 pies out of it (one I froze). The recipe works well doubled also. I think next time I may add a bit more salt to the mixture and brush the top of the pie with an egg wash before baking. Great recipe, thanks!

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
I made this bread yesterday and added a whole bag of dark chocolate chips instead of the mini chips. I also added about 1/2 cup of finely chopped walnuts. It yielded 8 mini-loaves and a square pan. I took the square loaf and drizzled chocolate (melted dark chocolate mixed with whipping cream) on top of the bread in a diagonal pattern. I then dusted with powdered sugar. Everyone at work loved it. I will be making more of this!!

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
This was a great recipe! I have been looking for a marble pumpkin cheesecake recipe and this definitely hit the spot. I only had hazelnuts for the crust, but the flavor actually came out very good. I think next time, instead of putting the white cheesecake mixture on top, I will layer pumpkin - white - pumpkin. I didn't get a lot of swirling action when I followed the directions. I think by layering it the swirls may come through better.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
I used the canned salmon and it wasn't too good - tasted more like tuna. I would use fresh salmon next time and add some Old Bay Seasoning to give it a bit more flavor.

Down Home Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2004
I gave this recipe a 4 for 2 reasons. 1) There was minimal flavor, so I had to add some more salt and parsley and fresh black pepper. 2) The 2 cups pasta was confusing. Was it 2 cups cooked? It looked too soupy as 2 cups cooked, so I used 4 cups cooked. It came out just the way I'd hope. It was really good in the end - but needed a bit tweaking!

Cream Cheese Penguins

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2004
The penguins are a bit difficult to make in that it is hard to fill the olives bellies with the cheese. I used a pastry bag and a whipped cream cheese and that made it a bit easier. Since I made a lot of them, I ended up just using the holes instead of cutting slits - they looked fine that way too. I also made a cheeseball to go with it and shaped it like an igloo. I placed the igloo on foil so it looked like ice and placed the penguins all around the igloo. It was quite festive and got many good reviews!

Surprise South Beach Mashed 'Potatoes'

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2004
If you like vegetables, this is really good. I don't like plain cauliflower, but when you puree it and at the flavoring, this is excellent! This is WW friendly too - which makes it even better. If you are expecting this to taste like potatoes, you won't get there. Because it is healthy, I like it better than real potatoes.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2002
This is an excellent recipe! I made it and subsituted prosciutto for the ham and it came out excellent! I also sliced the chicken breast in half lengthwise to have a thinner cut. It was quite easy to roll it this way.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
I added a bit of flour to the the juices at the end to make a thicker sauce for the chicken. Also, I would use less oil or butter next time.
