Cherry Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
This recipe makes 12 full size muffins. Good texture, taste, and pretty pink glaze. I omitted the nuts because of personal preference and used slightly more cherries and chips.

Zucchini Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
The egg noodles offer a nice taste change from the usual pasta. I thought this made a nice, quick light lunch garnished with french fried onions for some crunch.

Cinnamon-Curry Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
The dijon-cinnamon-curry seasoning sounded a bit unlikely to me but I tried it anyway as so many reviewers gave it a high recommendation. I must admit that I used more mayo and less of both the curry and the cinnamon, but it absolutely worked. Next time I think I may omit the relish but add dried cranberries or raisins.

Mongolian Strawberry-Orange Juice Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I cut the amount of orange juice to 1/2 cup, added 1/2 2% milk for a little creaminess, and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Only 4-5 ice cubes. I liked this smoothie very much and will make it again.

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I like this wonderfully mild and sweet dressing with any salad combination - but my favorite is a salad of mixed greens, mandarin oranges, and garlic croutons.

Kielbasa and Kidney Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
This is excellent - it'ss easy and quick to assemble and it is very tasty. The only suggestion I have is to simmer about 15 minutes after adding the beans so they absorb some of the sauce's flavor.

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2009
I used ICF chicken and let it marinate frozen in a ziploc bag for about 4 hours. It was still partially frozen and super easy to slice. Wasn't sure if I was to cook the chicken in the marinade, but since the recipe said "all juices" I decided that I would. Used white mushrooms (cut in quarters) and ramen noodles. I did add some oyster sauce as that was suggested by many other reviewers, but left everything else as per the recipe. I can't see anyone not liking this stir-fry!

PJ's Sweet Potato Mash

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Very tasty with the horseradish and a super quick side dish to put together considering that I already had the cooked & mashed sweet potato in the freezer. Used brown sugar and garnished with fresh snipped chives for a sweet and savory taste.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I've never tried Old Bay Seasoning in zucchini cakes and it was really good! Except for that, I really don't think I'd get these confused with crab cakes, but I'd make them again anyway. I did not use the melted butter in the cakes themselves, but I did fry them in a combination of olive oil and butter to add some of the flavor.

Orange Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I made this using a handful of frozen red grapes in place of the ice. That gave it a nice "confetti" look but also added extra sugar...thought the end result was a little too sweet. Added kefir to the smoothie instead of yogurt, and some vanilla extract. Not sure I liked the texture the blended orange gave, maybe next time I'll use just orange juice because I did like the combo of orange and banana.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
FANTASTIC flavor! Made the spice rub using 1/8 tsp of EACH ingredient (for just one large chicken breast). I added an additional tblsp of butter at the end to make a sauce that I could serve over sweet potato/white potato hash browns. Did not feel it was necessary to add any additional garlic to the browned chicken. Very mmmmm dinner.

Tangy Tomato Slices

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
I skipped arranging this on a platter like the recipe suggested (although I agree that would look nice if you're making this for a picnic) and just mixed chopped fresh tomatoes, finely diced onion, and the dressing for a marinated tomato salad. Unfortunately, I don't have any fresh basil from my herb garden yet so dried had to do - I'm sure I'll make this again but with only half the vegetable oil. It was way too oily for me.

Cheesy Confetti Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Just the side I was looking for to go with my leftover steak...I did cut the recipe in half for all ingredients EXCEPT the can of green chiles. I also didn't have any pimiento or roasted red pepper, so just sauteed some chopped red bell pepper with the onions and rice. Cheddar Jack cheese gave the rice some extra color and snipped fresh chives added to the confetti look. A keeper in my book.

Rustic Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2009
A great last-minute dinner decision. I used 1/2 pound of bulk fresh pork sausage, one medium shredded zucchini, canned mushrooms, and 1 entire undrained can of fire-roasted garlic diced tomatoes. I did add more of the spices since I wasn't using Italian sausage and a few drops of hot pepper sauce. A different and delicious pasta - good with crusty garlic bread.

Singapore Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I was pretty impressed with this recipe - used only shrimp for the meat and onion (both yellow and green), bean sprouts, and red bell pepper for the veggies. Angel hair pasta instead of vermicelli. And...for a change I used just the seasonings the recipe called for instead of modifying the taste. It probably took longer to boil the water for the pasta and peel the shells off the shrimp than it did to cook this!

Chive Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
Great texture! I would say these biscuits have a very mild taste - wouldn't necessarily call them bland, however I did add some parmesan along with the cheddar cheese and used cold butter for the shortening. Good alongside my Chicken Primavera. If I want a biscuit with more savory flavor than "regular biscuits", I'll make these again.

Oven Fried Potatoes II

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
I cut the potatoes into thin fries and par boiled them for about 4 minutes before tossing with the oil and lemon juice. Added a few shakes of seasoned salt and oregano. Very good. (Even though I boiled the potatoes to give them a head start, I had to bake them much longer - maybe 15 minutes more - to get them as crispy as I like.)

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2009
I made this both the "traditional" way of browning the sausage and as more of a pasta sauce with crumbled sausage. When I made the "sauce" I added diced roma tomatoes. Both ways are excellent.

Peanut Butter Cornflake Crunch Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2009
This rates a 5+ for being something so good but easy to mix up. Adults love them too...a hit at cookouts. I do change the recipe slightly by using only 8 cups of corn flakes. I cut back on the white sugar to about 3/4 cup and boil the sugar/syrup mixture for a minute before adding the pnut butter. Also add 1/2 tsp vanilla. I mix semi-sweet chocolate chips and a little milk to make a glaze to drizzle on top of the warm bars.

Colcannon Irish Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
To save a bit of cooking time, I sauteed the onions and the cabbage while the potatoes cooked, then added them together and mashed with butter and s&p. Used bagged cole slaw mix, so ended up with a little extra color in this dish from the pieces of carrot. VERY tasty garnished with a dollop of sour cream & chives.
