Bifana

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
I substituted red wine vinegar for the cider vinegar and omitted the ginger because I didn't have them in the house. My husband thought it was great and we should save the recipie - which is saying a lot because he is not a fan of recipes that include cinnamon. My 3 year old didn't even seem fazed by the red pepper (I used ground, not flakes). I thought it was good and easy .

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2007
Really enjoyed this easy recipe! I used approx 3-4 pounds pork loin fillets and marinated 18 hours. I like my pork well done, so even after cooking to a temp of 150 degrees (higher than the suggested temp in the recipe), I put it back into the oven for another 15 minutes. I'd recommend cooking to 165 degrees.

Ambrosian Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
Very Good! The only change I made was to use standard breadcrumbs, since that's what I had on hand. I was surprised how much I enjoyed the dipping sauce. A sweet meal, so be sure to pair it with appropriate side dishes to balance. We had basmati rice and a cucumber & tomato salad.

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
I used 6 cups of chick broth, quartered red skin potatoes with skins on, only 6 slices of bacon, and pured part of the soup as some suggested. Rather than add the cream to the whole pot, I added a splash of cream to each bowl before serving. I think leftovers will re-heat better without the cream. The first couple bites I'd rate 4-stars, but after I had a chance to savor the flavors, it was a 5-star recipe to be sure! Very easy and hard to stop eating. My two year old even enjoyed it!

Easy Peach Cobbler II

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Fantastic! I modified it by using frozen sliced peaches (approx 4 cups, didn't thaw before using), reducing sugar to just 1 cup, and adding cinnamon & vanilla. I used homemade bread, but didn't count the slices. I tore the bread into smaller pieces, rather than strips as some suggested. Wow. Can't wait to have it again.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
This will be a new pre-thanksgiving tradition for our family! We had extra pumpkin when making pies, so tried this recipe. The only modification was to leave out the ginger, because I didn't have any. Real whipped cream was the perfect topping. Note that the pancakes are very thick, but it wasn't a problem.

Whipped Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
My husband, 2 year old son, and mother in law loved it. I thought it was only so-so. Next time I'll leave out the nutmeg.

Curried Beef a la Tim

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2007
Pretty good and relatively easy. I didn't want to open a whole can of paste for the small amount called for, so I substituted ketchup. Seemed a little risky, but it worked well enough. I also added a dash or two of red pepper, and it was a bit too spicy for my 2 year old. It was nice for something different, but I won't be adding it to my recipe box.

Leftover Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I think the secret is having tasty gravy. This was a fantastic way to get rid of the leftover turkey. I plan to make this again tonight with leftover roast beef.

Round Steak and Gravy II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
I didn't have onion soup so used 2 cups of water + onion and mushroom dry soup mix along with a can of the cream of mushroom soup. I also used garlic, chopped onions, and green pepper when browning the meat. I covered the roaster with foil and then put the lid on to seal in juices. This was a great fall-off-the-fork meal. I served with mashed potatoes --- to take advantage of the delicious gravy. I didn't have quite as much gravy as I expected, will add more water next time. To compensate, I made gravy with the browned bits in the pan, water from my potatoes, and a little cornstarch. Delicious!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
I like my sweet potatoes just as well or better without marshmallows. I have a big sweet tooth, but I'd say this is too sweet.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
Wonderful! I love how simple this is - I was working with minimal supplies in the house. I ended up making my own salsa - crushed canned pineapple, cilantro, red pepper, onion, tomato. Served chicken on a bed of lettuce with toasted chips and guac. Delicious like restaurant salads. Very tender chicken!

Tender Potato Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
Very good. I skipped the rolling and cutting. To save time I just rolled balls in my hand and flattened on the tray. I didn't add much sugar - as suggested by others - maybe only 1/8 to 1/4 Tbsp. Wished I had had honey in the house to put on these!

Glo's Sausage Fried Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
Very good. Very pretty with the peas, cabbage, and carrots. I didn't give it 5 stars because it was missing a little something... just not enough kick for me. My modifications: I added crushed red pepper to my own plate. I substituted frozen sugar snap peas for the regular peas, added a few tablespoons of a ginger sesame sauce, and used finely chopped pork roast from a prior meal in place of the sausage. It was a great dish for using up leftover meat. Will definitely add this recipe to our meal rotation!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
Delicious and so easy! I tweaked slightly for what I had on hand & made it vegitarian: A little less tomato sauce; vegie broth instead of chick broth (no extra water); lots of extra fresh basil. This is a new favorite and I will make again soon.

Spinach Crumb Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2008
I cut way back on the butter for the bread crumb mix as one reviewer suggested, but it was still too buttery. Other than that, fantastic! We'll be eating spinach much more regularly!

Dawn's Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
Toasting nuts before hand is important. you can skip the step, as some recipes do, but it's better if you toast. I substitute water for milk so I can share the nuts with my vegan friends.

Carrot Cake X

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
Very good for being so healthy. Of course, it had a nice layer of cream cheese frosting too. I took suggestions from others and made the following modifications. * only 1 cup sugar * no oil * 1 cup unsweetened applesauce * closer to 3 cups carrots * coconut was sweetened (part of the reason I reduced the sugar)
