Alla Checca

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
This recipe was good. I used less olive oil than the recipe called for - I added it into the bowl after I had put in the tomatoes and other ingredients, then just sort of eyeballed it. As the mixture sits, it releases a bit more liquid. I made sure to add plenty of salt to the sauce so the finished pasta would have enough flavor. It was a good way to help me use my summer bounty of tomatoes.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I don't normally like thin cookies, but the flavor of these is delicious, and I really enjoyed them. They came out a bit crispy on the edges and chewy in the centers. They were a nice change from the "puffier" cookies I normally make.

Ham Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
For me, this recipe was just okay. I steamed the broccoli prior to using it in the recipe. I also used cheddar because that's what we had on hand. It wasn't horrible or anything, just not the home run I was expecting.

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
I was definitely tempted to change up this recipe, but in the end I decided to remain true to the original recipe. Everybody here loves to add their own touches! Anyhow, I was quite pleased with these muffins. They were tasty, moist, and very easy to prepare. They really don't need any changes at all. Very good, thanks for a terrific recipe!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
I am dealing with an overabundance of lemons from my tree, so this recipe looked like a great way to help me use them up. I cut way back on the ground pepper - I just eyeballed how much I wanted to use. It was probably like 1/4 - 1/2 tsp. I also used dried basil and dried parsley because I didn't feel like buying fresh and that's what I had in the cupboard. This recipe was good, but the whole family felt a bit "lemoned out" after eating it. If I were to make it again I might cut back on the lemon just a bit!

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
I love this recipe precisely because it does not include capers, which I don't really like. I too doubled the sauce, and thought this recipe made a lovely dinner. Great way to help me use up lemons from my tree!

Zucchini Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
My family loved these muffins, but I have to give them 4 stars because I didn't make the recipe exactly as written. I messed up and bought spice cake mix instead of carrot cake mix. I went ahead and used it though, and actually really loved the result. I omitted the raisins, and used 1 cup of zucchini and 1 cup of grated carrots to make up for the fact that I had the wrong cake mix. I also frosted the muffins with some leftover maple cream cheese icing. Fantastic!!

Best Steak Marinade in Existence

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
This marinade wasn't bad, but it just wasn't the "best steak marinade in existence". I followed the recipe exactly as written and used it to marinate a top sirloin steak that I grilled. Sorry to say, this recipe probably won't be a repeat at our house.

Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2009
My family and I thought this was just okay. The texture is a bit dry, as others have said. The glaze helps, but unfortunately I just don't think I'll be making this again.

Bananas 'N' Cream Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
I made this recipe exactly as directed with the exception of using pecans instead of walnuts. This was excellent - it tastes just like banana bread but has a lighter texture like cake. We will definitely make this again. Thank you for the recipe!

Mini Crescent Dogs

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
These were so simple to make and so tasty! Will definitely make these again as appetizers. I could actually see eating these alongside some eggs for breakfast!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
I gave this recipe 5 stars even though I made a couple of minor changes, because the changes didn't affect the flavor at all. I was just trying to lower the fat a little bit! I browned the chicken bundles in olive oil instead of butter, and I used milk instead of heavy whipping cream. Excellent flavor, terrific recipe, and nobody (myself included) could tell it was a lower fat version! A keeper for sure.

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
I tried this recipe in hopes of duplicating the flavor of a local Hawaiian BBQ restaurant, but this just wasn't what I was hoping for. It was good, but I probably won't make it again.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
I made quite a few minor changes to this recipe. I had some precooked ground sausage already in my freezer, so I just used that and sauteed my veggies in extra virgin olive oil. I added in 1/2 tsp. dried basil in step 2 and did not add in the fresh basil until the very end, right before I served the soup. I also substituted a 15 oz can of crushed tomatoes for the fresh tomatoes. I omitted the can of tomato sauce. Everyone in the family absolutely loved it!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
I made this today, and felt that it needed a couple of small changes: I decreased the sugar to 1/2 cup, and I added a small squeeze (probably about 1/2 tsp) of fresh lemon juice.

Oatmeal Date Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
This is an excellent recipe, in my opinion. I made it exactly as written, except I used pecans instead of walnuts. I was looking for a recipe to use up some extra dates I had in the freezer, and these cookies were just perfect. Thanks for sharing!

Creamy Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
I started out by making this recipe as directed, but when I tasted it, the tang from the cream cheese was just overwhelming, so I added a significant amount of extra brown sugar. I also used pecans instead of walnuts. Even with those changes it still wasn't a winner for our family. I won't be making this again. Sorry!

Wake-Up Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
I thought this was pretty good, but way heavy on the cheddar. After seeing the consistency in the pan, I added 2 more eggs blended with a bit of extra milk, salt, and mustard. For me, those 2 extra eggs made the recipe much more balanced. I have also tried this with a variety of different breakfast meats and loved it.
