Dog Treats I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
What a great recipe and easy to make. My Labrador couldn't believe something coming out of the oven was for him, he scarfed them down and drooled all over the kitchen floor. Since my lab loves peanut butter I added it as well.

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
I really wanted this recipe to work but it didn't. Though the taste was great I couldn't get them crispy. I doctored the bread crumbs with garlic powder and basil, sprayed them with cooking spray and baked them at 390 in my convection oven for about 20 minutes. They turned out pretty good, but only barely crispy, and my boys wouldnt even try them. So the next time I used my regular oven at 425 and the coating turned black and set off the smoke alarm and the zucchini wasn't crispy at all (this is fresh zucchini straight from the garden). I may try it again in the convection oven but leave it in longer.

Thai Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
This satisfied our craving for satay. I didnt have all the ingredients so I substituted but kept it as close as possible. I cooked it in a pan with the marinade instead of grilling because I didn't have skewers - It was really good but I think grilling or baking would be better. My children didn't like it, which was fine because my husband and I ate it all. I served with homemade fried noodles and a peanut sauce from this site. Added: I have grilled the chicken on skewers and it is amazingly better, really really good.

Peanut Sauce I

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
Fantastic. I was scared to use so much vinegar and cayenne so I halved those 2 ingredients - someone suggessted soy sauce instead of tamari so I did that and used splenda instead of molassis. I also added a sprig of minced fresh basil. It was still spicy enough for us and it went perfect with the chicken satay and noodles I cooked. I thought it would be too much sauce but we ate it all. I will definately make again.

Restaurant Style Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2007
A very nice egg drop soup, I thought it was a bit too salty -probably because I used bullion- and had too much egg in it - but my husband thought it was great and my utmost picky 7 year old gobbled it down - minus the chives. I will make again.

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
I wanted a healthy, sweet treat change from my usual raw almonds and this is it! I used splenda instead of sugar and doubled the sauce I also increased the cinnamon and salt per another review, I think I could use even more salt, but it's addictive and delicious the way it is. Thanks.

Speedy Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
wow - what a great recipe. It's 104 outside right now, and we wanted a cool treat for after dinner - this was it! So easy to make and delicious. We didn't have cream or half and half so used 2% milk, it thickened in about 4 minutes. My kids put sprinkles on top and it was devoured. Thank you.

Lemonade Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
Everyone thought this cake was really good, it was really lemony and moist - you need to like lemons! I didn't bake it in a fancy pan and with the glaze it wasn't very pretty.

Beer Butt Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
This was by far the most amusing recipe I have made. I convection baked it for at 275 for 1.5 hours, and we couldn't stop laughing at the chicken 'standing' in the oven. I deviated from the recipe quite a bit, I didn't have any beer so used 1/2 can coke (it works on the Cola Pot Roast recipe from this site) and rubbed the chx with olive oil then seasoned well with rotisseri chx seasoning. It was by far the best chicken, moist and flavorful. I know I will make this comical 'coke butt' chicken again.

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
I have never made Pesto before and honestly didn't know what it was until I made this and put it in a pasta dish,then voila! I realized the glob I dug out of the food processor was a familiar taste and made the pasta dish wonderfully delicious. I used raw almonds and did not toast them, and used dried basil instead of fresh leaves. I will definately make again and not sure I can make another pasta dish without it. Thank you!

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
Wow - tastes great, presents great but easy to make. As others suggested I doubled the spinach but could have easily tripled it! I used a jar of sauce and made my own pesto from the 'Easy Pesto' recipe on this site. The hard part was waiting for the noodles to cook and not dipping into the sauce. Fantastic.

Local Kine Wontons

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
DELICIOUS! I forgot the soy sauce and didn't have any water chestnuts, but that didn't matter. I baked the wontons, liberally spraying a baking dish with cooking spray then the top of the wontons. I baked them in a convection oven at 390 for 10 minutes. I served them with Sweet and Sour Sauce II from this site. Everyone loved them including my 9 year old.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
This recipe is really good. I give it 4 stars because it's not as szechwany as the local restaurant we love. In place of crushed red pepper I used 1/4 tsp. of chili garlic sauce for a bit of a kick. I doubled the sauce as well. In place of green onions I used about a 1/2 cup of white onions. Definately a keeper and will most certainly make again.

Sweet and Sour Sauce II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
Wonderful sauce. I used ketchup in place of tomato paste and splenda in place of sugar. I did at least double the amount of cornstarch than the recipe called for, at least for our taste in thickness. Very, very good. It was perfect with the Local Kline Wontons from this site.

Chicken Chimichangas with Green Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
This is delicious! I changed the recipe to 4 servings and made the following changes: black olives instead of green, lemon juice instead of lime juice, and 1/2 can refried beans in place of cream cheese. I made these changes because of what was in the pantry at the time. Besides we like refried beans with our chimis. (I warmed the sour cream and beans slightly in microwave to make mixing easier). I also used pepperjack cheese, which gave it a nice kick. Also after rolling them up I sprayed them with cooking oil and baked on a cookie sheet for 12 minutes in a convection oven at 350. They were nice and crispy and right before serving I poured the sauce over. Very Very Good and WILL make again. thanks for a great recipe.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2007
My husband nearly keeled over he thought it was so good, and I agree. I too, browned the chicken in butter & olive oil then baked it at 350 for an additional 25 minutes and made the gravy separate, otherwise I followed the recipe. An extremely tasty dish we will enjoy again and again, thank you!

Cola Pot Roast I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2007
Wow. If I would have read the recipe in a cookbook I would have passed it up, but after reading the rave reviews I knew it had to be good. And it was fabulous. 5 lbs and it only cooked 2 hours in a convection oven (covered) at 300. Super flavorful, moist and TENDER. Blew me away! My husband by far thought it the best roast that's ever came out of my oven, and I totally agree.

Whipped Cauliflower

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2007
I love cauliflower so I was surprised at how terrible this dish tasted, it didn't even smell good. I ate a few bites, but no one else would. I thought it was a waste of a good cauliflower head and the water needed to clean the dishes!

Mushroom and Swiss Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2007
Sorry, but this dish was not all that tasty to my husband and I. I followed the recipe and it sure smelled and looked good, but the taste was simply mediocre.
