Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2007
All I have to say is WOW. I halved the recipe because I only had three bananas. Two of them were really on their last leg and I was hesitant to use them but maybe thats why these have such an amazing banana flavor! Upon suggestion of others, I used butter instead of shortening. I also dusted my chocolate chips with a tiny dash of flour and the trick worked cuz they didn't sink! Otherwise I made exactly as shown. I made exactly 12 muffins and filled the muffin tins almost to the top. They did not overflow. I baked 350 F for 20 minutes. Good thing I checked on them. They looked really done on the top but the toothpick came up dry. They were nice and crunchy on the top but so delicious and moist in the middle. This is definitely one of my favorites. I will make this again and again.

Mom's Ginger Snaps

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
This is the first time I made these and modified my recipe based on suggestions. I was out of cloves so I added 1/2 tsp ground all spice. I added 2 tsp ground cinnamon and 4 tsp ground ginger. I used full flavor molasses. I wanted bite sized and found that the cookies nearly doubled in size. So after setting the batter in the fridge to cool about 20 minutes, I rolled the dough into tiny balls and flattened them as I dipped the tops in the granulated sugar. I place the flattened dough (now about the size of a quarter) onto the cookie sheet and gently pressed on top. There is a tiny pocket of air left trapped underneath if you don't press down. It doesn't affect how it bakes, however. I baked at 350 degrees for exactly 12 minutes. They came out perfectly bite sized and once cooled, very crunchy. Just how I wanted them!! They did have a slight aftertaste that I don't normally get when eating ginger snaps. I can't tell if it's my molasses or the ground ginger. Despite that I haven't been able to stop eating them. YUM! I really liked these cookies and will definitely make again with some more modifications. I am trying to get a recipe that's similar to Trader Joe's triple ginger snap cookies. Next time I'm going to try fresh ginger and going to add crystallized ginger.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
Absolutely delicious muffins! I added 1/4 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp nutmeg & 1/4 tsp vanilla extract. I tried to add the streusel mix towards the end of baking, but they had puffed so much that I could barely put any on top. I will DEFINITELY make again but add the mixture after 10 minutes of baking to allow the mixture to stick to the top of the muffin top before it rises. I've made different recipes before but this is my favorite. Simple, quick, and made 12 perfect muffins.

Broccoli Cheese Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2007
Delicious!!!! I changed the recipe so it served 4. I didn't have cottage cheese on hand and my ricotta had gone bad. I used half sour cream and half cream cheese. I also added 3/4 c frozen spinach and a handful of corn for more veggies. The top and sides turned deliciously crunchy! My boyfriend finished the entire dish off!!

Creamed Tuna On Toast

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
My father made a recipe similar to this and I just wanted to make a suggestion! I'm not sure how he creamed his tuna but he would add frozen peas. Then he would serve over baked potato instead of toast. It's actually quite good with the baked potato!! My mother hated the recipe. My father remembered a similar recipe from his navy days in Vietnam.

Tofu and Veggies in Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2007
I made several modifications from suggestions of previous ratings. I used half sesame oil & half vegetable oil instead of peanut oil, a frozen bag of mix veggies (carrots, broccoli, zucchini, snap peas, green beans & lima beans), chicken instead of tofu (boyfriend's request), brown sugar & honey instead of molasses & lots of garlic & chili pepper sauce (Chinese, found in any asian grocery store) instead of cayenne pepper. I whisked the peanut sauce to make sure it was smooth since my peanut butter had been in the fridge. I thought the peanut butter was a bit strong in this flavor and might cut down to 1/3 cup but my boyfriend loved it & gobbled it up and I found my bowl completely empty. I served over brown rice. Great recipe! Love peanut butter!!!!!

Spinach Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
I was kind of disappointed. It was OK but I'm not sure if I'll make it again. My biggest complaint...the chick peas were way too crunchy! For the veggies I had 1 boiled sweet potato, 3 boiled red potatoes, chick peas, cauliflower & broccoli frozen vegetables & chopped fresh baby spinach. I also doubled the mild curry paste and it still wasn't spicy enough. OK recipe but needs major modifications.

Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2007
I modified this a bit. But it was still delicious. I omitted: onions, lemon juice & crackers. I added-low sodium cream of mushroom soup, frozen green beans & bread crumbs. I actually loved the green beans in this casserole but did NOT like the broccoli. I'm not sure why! I will make again but try to reduce the fat & calories. I didn't realize how much there was per serving. I may try using lower-fat cheese and miracle whip. I loved the recipe though! I will make again, with modifications and ONLY green beans this time. Funny, I was searching for a good green bean casserole that wouldn't have any onions in it. I found it in this broccoli casserole!!

Stuffed Shells I

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
I love this recipe!! I couldn't put the shells down! I halved the recipe and still had extra cheese mixes left. I made modifications: I used ricotta cheese instead cottage cheese. I used frozen spinach (thawed AND squeezed dry!!) instead of mushrooms. I used a whole jar instead of just half. Definitely necessary! I think the sauce is extremely important. I used my favorite chunky spicy sauce, threw in some jarred jalopenos (boyfriend is a fiend) and topped with shredded mozzarella cheese instead of parmesean. My boyfriend and I loved these. With modifications, one of the best recipes. I will DEFINITELY make this again.

Green Bean and Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2007
Extremely disappointing. I had to double my cooking time to get my fresh pototoes the consistency I wanted. The cream of chicken was very overpowering and it was way too cheesy/greasy. I prefer lighter casseroles and this one definitely sits heavy. I will not make this again. I gave it two stars instead of one because my boyfriend thought it edible (where as I did not).

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
This was sooo delicious!! I made some modifications, though. I halved the recipe but kept a whole can of creamed corn. This made it really runny and wet. If I didn't use a whole can, I'm sure it would have been more corn bread-like. I substituted plain non fat yogurt for sour cream. I substituted frozen corn instead of a can (no salt!). I added 1/2 a package of pepper jack cheese and 1/4 cup of jalapenos because my boyfriend loves it spicy. Even if I didn't make the substitutions, it would have been delicious!! I will DEFINITELY make this again.

Baked Macaroni and Cheese III

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
This was delicious BUT I made a lot of modifications. Following other reviews, I doubled the sauce part and tripled the cheese. I even had to take out some of the macaroni because there wasn't enough sauce to make it as cheese as I like. I used some chedder, pepper jack & gorgonzola. I mixed it all together instead of layering. I mixed in breadcrumbs with the parmesean cheese. I added white pepper, garlic powder & onion powder. I also mixed in a lot of jalapeno peppers & a little bit of juice. My boyfriend is a jalapeno fiend. The result is delicious! If you're expecting stovetop mac & cheese w/ processed cheese...this isn't the recipe for you! This is BAKED mac & cheese! I will add this to my notebook of recipes to make again!

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
This was my first time making pancakes and I think it turned out pretty well. I say this because I was not 100% sure what the batter consistency was supposed to be. With that said, I enjoyed these pancakes and will definitely make them again. They were very thick and meaty and not like IHOP. I think IHOP is quite a bit thinner. These were thick like regular buttermilk pancakes. Next time, I'm going to try to add more milk, & try adding applesauce (my father's suggestion & he makes delicious pancakes!). I also added a lot of chopped almonds, walnuts & pecans and I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg.
