Chocolate Chip Cake Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
Not only are these super convenient to make and delicious, clean-up is a breeze! I also used butter cake mix (Duncan Hines Butter Recipe Golden) and mini-chocolate chips for a slightly different look. Instead of the drizzle, I just sprinkled more chips on top of the hot bars and let them melt.

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
I baked this using an 11X7 pan and a square baking dish as I didn't have a jelly roll pan OR a 13X9 available. The bars were more cake-like than what the recipe probably intended, but very good. I added about 1/2 tsp allspice in addition to the cinnamon.

Green Beans and Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
The changes I made to this recipe were that I sauteed the potatoes briefly in butter along with some chopped red onion before adding the broth, seasonings and fresh green beans. I also added some kielbasa chunks to make this a one-skillet meal. Didn't find it necessary to add the cornstarch.

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
Turns a plain apple into a fantastic snack. Didn't use the whipped topping and just used the cinnamon as a topper ingredient. But I can't decide if I like this better with apples or grapes... if you don't have vanilla yogurt, you can use plain unsweetened with some brown sugar and vanilla added. A dollop on a bowl of grapes makes a quick and tasty salad!

Spicy Peach-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
Very, very tasty. Although I didn't get a lot of spice - but that was OK - I enjoyed the other flavors. Used apricot preserves instead of peach - and I just skipped the second step of removing the chops from the skillet and added the wine to the preserves mixture - poured it right on the browned meat and then simmered. I did have to add some more water as the sauce became a little too thick before the pork was cooked. Buttered green beans were an excellent side.

Pineapple Iced Tea

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
"Yes" to less lemon juice. And a little more sugar for my taste, too. I enjoyed the pineapple/tea flavor and sprig of mint made for a nice presentation and the added taste was a nice compliment.

Grilled Garlic and Herb Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
This recipe looked really good to me, but I only had pre-cooked shrimp on hand. So instead of grilling I just sauteed them briefly with the marinade until the shrimp were heated through. (I flip-flopped the amount of the lemon juice and oil.) Try subbing Jamaican Jerk seasoning for the basil for a slight flavor variation that's very good, too.

Tomato Spiral Toss

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
Good as a side dish, especially with garden ripe tomatoes and fresh basil. I added the tomato mixture to the hot pasta and heated slightly.

Italian Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Try using half the italian dressing. I had no problem with the patties holding together - (although I pan-fried the burgers so that if they didn't stay together, I could just brown the meat for "loose" hamburger sandwiches). The flavor was very good and it doesn't take much more time and effort than making plain burger patties.

Creamed Peas

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
You can use canned peas for this, too. Just drain and reserve the liquid. I found that I needed to add some back in to thin the cream sauce a bit. A sprinkle of onion powder boosts the flavor.

Hot Fudge Cake

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
With pre-cooked rice, this was a snap to put together at the last minute. I added about a cup of frozen corn, used ketchup instead of opening a can for the small amount of tomato sauce, and added some cumin for extra spice.

Zucchini and Onion Pancake

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
I think this is a delicious way to prepare zucchini...not bland at all. In addition to the oregano, I did add a sprinkle of seasoned salt to the mixture and topped the "pancake" with Colby Jack cheese before serving. I used one reviewer's method of allowing the grated zucchini and onion to sit in a colander for 30 minutes to drain and that seemed to work very well for me.

Marinated Chuck Roast

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
I marinated the steak for 24 hours+ and it was very juicy even though I grilled it a bit longer than I would have liked... I used cider vinegar in the marinade. Will definitely use this recipe again.

Tofu-Veggie Stir Fry and Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2009
This recipe seemed like it would be a nice taste departure from my usual way of preparing tofu stir fry with Asian seasonings. But I found myself adding Asian flavors: a little soy sauce, rice vinegar, and hoisin sauce. I did use tofu that had been frozen (the first time I've tried that) so possibly it had a stronger taste that overpowered the gravy??? Sorry, but next time I'll go with my usual preparation.

Orange Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
This recipe adds super flavor to cooked carrots. I used diced baby carrots so they cooked even faster. There was some liquid remaining in the saucepan that didn't glaze on the carrots, but I spooned that over white rice. Delicious!
