Garlic Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
I have not cooked this particular recipe, but I would definitely change a few things based on reading it. First of all use extra vigin olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I would sautee the shrip in olive oil, butter and a few cloves of fresh garlic. Garnish with some fresh basil and freshly grated parmesean cheese. You could also add some fresh peeled/seeded plum tomaotes.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2005
I made this for dinner tonight. We all liked it a lot. I made a few changes though. I omitted the mayo and bacon and added a little chopped red onion and salt/pepper to the mixure. I also pounded the chicken breast flat and rolled them instead of butterfling the chicken. I poured a little Kraft Roasted Red pepper Italian salad dressing on the chicken and added a sprinkle of paprika for color. I baked it covered for 35 min at 400*. I served it with rice. Very yummy!

Chicken With Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2002
I made a few modifications to the recipe: I only had 2 cups mushrooms on hand. Also, I added some italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper to the bread crumbs. I sauteed the chicken in butter with a spash of olive oil and a little crushed garlic. I did not have mozzarella cheese on hand, so I used a shredded mexican blend. I thought the sauce looked a little thin at the end of the cooking time. So, once the chicken was done, I plated the chicken and thickend the sauce in a sauce pan with a little cornstarch. We poured the sauce over the chicken and buttered eggnoodles. Very good. My kids and hubby loved the dish. My son loves mushrooms, so he was pretty happy with his dinner.

Banana Chip Muffins I

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2001
I added a little vanilla extract and a dash of cinnamon. They turned out pretty good. I baked them at 400 degrees as per the recipe. After about 18 minutes, they were quite brown and fully cooked.

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2000
This recipe was ok, but not the greatest. I also used Dijon mustard, but for us the mustard taste was a little overpowering. My kids did not care for it, but my husband liked it. I tasted the sauce before pouring it over the chicken and it was good, but I think it became much stronger during the cooking process. Maybe the taste would be better using 1/2 dijon mustard 1/2 regular mustard. Also maybe a little water or chicken broth could be added to lighten the taste. If I make this again, I will reduce the amount of sauce.

We made this for Thansgiving this year. It was excellent. Very moist and tasty. Even the picky kids loved it. It has a nice cake-like consistency.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2000
Great recipe. I used italian bread crumbs and added a little salt, black pepper, paprika and onion powder. I also doubled the bread crumbs and added extra garlic. My husband and kids loved it! They kids cut the chicken into squares and dipped them in dijon mustard to make "chicken nuggets"! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Easy Eggplant Pita

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2000
I made this for dinner last night using the smaller baby eggplants. I added a little italian seasoning for flavor while cooking the eggplant. Also,I served the pitas with shredded lettuce, chopped tomato and chopped green onions. We topped the pitas with shredded cheese (mozarella and parmesean blend) and some ranch dressing. Overall the sandwich was very good. Even the kids enjoyed it. I think the original recipe is good, but would have been a little bland for my taste without the additions I had made.

Cilantro Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2000
This was AWESOME! I served it with grilled chicken and rice. I only had one cucumber in the house, so I added 1/2 of a firm tomato and some red onion. I also added a little fresh mint and some black pepper. Delicious! My 4 year old son asked that I make it for dinner tomorrow night!

Cranberry Crunch Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2000
My husband loved this recipe. It tasted great, but I thought there was way too much topping. Next time I make it I will cut the topping recipe in half. If you really like cranberries, you could even add an additional can of cranberry sauce.

Zucchini Bread IV

I have made this bread several times, and it is delicious. I did make a few changes - I only added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and I added a pinch of nutmeg for some extra flavor.

Instant Pistachio Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2000
I made this recipe for a potluck and everyone loved it. I find that if you do not drain the pineapple, you have a much creamier texture. I also added 1 cup of chopped walnuts. I would make this recipe again.

I made this recipe for my family and they loved it. I did make a few changes: I omitted the grapes and added 1 cup of walnuts instead of pecans. It was delicious - and it tasted great the next day. I would definitely make it again.
