Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
I was craving a pasta dish that was creamy, but that wouldn't take a lot of work. I do not eat shrimp, but I used this recipe as a base. First off- I cut the recipe down from 8 servings to 2. I still came out with a TON of sauce. It was enough to nicely coat a whole bag of fresh pasta (4+ servings)! The original recipe must be swimming in sauce- which isn't my thing. I sauted onions and garlic first and tossed in some italian seasoning. I used fresh garlic and parsley fettuccini & I used kraft parmesan cheese. Delicious. Just make sure you cut down on the sauce.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
This is great. Such simple ingredients with such a huge taste. I only used 1 cup of broth (due to previous reviews), but I think I will reduce it to less- maybe 3/4 cup because it was still very wet. I must not have drained the spinach & artichokes enough. The only changes I made were: I used whole wheat lasagna noodles, 1/2 tbsp rosemary, 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar & regular feta. Also, this made way more than 8 regular sized servings!! It made double that... I couldn't imagine splitting one full size lasagna with 8 people, especially with vegetable sides & bread. We really need to rethink our portion sizes in the US... Anyway I'll definitely make this next time we have a lot of people over.

Suki's Spinach and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2008
This is excellent- even better once reheated. I will be making this weekly. The only changes I made were: I doubled the spinach, used less feta (1/2cup), used whole wheat linguine, and instead of salt I used a lot of red pepper flakes. This kicked it up- but it was fabulous. This is my new favourite pasta dish.

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
I've used this recipe for such a long time now- I can't even stomach the stuff that comes in a jar. I agree that using 5 peppers is an overload, I use 2 jalapeno's & chopped red onion. I also "make" my own tortilla chips. Cut up a stack of whole wheat tortillas, spray them with Pam and sprinkle on some seasoning. I bake them at 350 until crispy. Delicious & a healthy alternative to the deep fried option.

Easy Hummus

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
I also added some green onion & extra garlic- but the tahini (for me anyway) was surely missed. The best part is the ease of this recipe. It was good, not great- but definitely worth making if you're in a pinch!

French Toast Stars

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
Yummy! I made this recipe this morning for mother's day breakfast. I left out the orange zest (due to citrus allergies!) but even still, this is the best FT recipe I've come across. The kids kept saying how it tastes exactly like restaurant breakfast. :)

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2008
I started to make this for a church event- when I realized I didn't have enough graham cracker crumbs. lol I need to get into the habit of measuring my ingredients BEFORE I start cooking. So I had to cut the recipe in half. I then let it set in a small spring foam pan which was the best thing I could have done. The peanut butter bar looked like a peanut butter cup & it was very easy to then cut the bar into pieces and distribute. I found the bars to be very rich- so I cut them into tiny pieces (made about 25). It was just the perfect amount of sweetness, anymore I think would have been too much to eat! I got rave reviews and had one person beg me for the recipe. Overall, a crowd pleaser!

Chocolate Mint Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
I entered a local cookie bake-off (about 25 entries) using these cookies today. I am not a really a mint fan, but... apparently the judges were because I won! I used Cadbury Pep Mint Patties (chopped into small pieces) and I melted the chocolate in the microwave & then quickly spread it on the cookies. I did that simply for time because the Pep patties are THICK and would have taken forever to melt on their own. I baked the cookies for 8 minutes resulting in chewy almost brownie like cookies. On their own, the cookies are a little on the blah side, but with the peppermint "icing"- Fantastic! I can't count how many times I heard, "Mmm this tastes exactly like a girl guide cookie!!!". They're chewy, rich & an overall winner!

Chocolate Chess Pie II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
Eww, eww, eww. I had such high hopes for this pie. I followed the recipe exactly & it was inedible. The pie filling was so greasy & the pie would not set. You can even see the greasiness in the photos! Sad. If I attempt to make this again I will omit the 1/4c of melted butter. Just remembering my first bite makes me shudder. I feel a little out of place because everyone just raved about this pie in the reviews. I never leave baaad reviews, but I just needed to say something.

Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
A good base recipe. I needed to add a lot to it to get the desired taste & "hearty" feeling I expected.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
The best use for banana's! The only changes I made were, adding extra cinnamon to the batter, using oil instead of melted butter. For an extra little treat I added 1/4 peanut butter to the batter and I sprinkled a teaspoon of chocolate chips on top of each muffins. It melts nicely with crumb topping.. mmm. These are dangerously good. I can only make them on special occassions because my family loses all self control when these muffins are around. :D

Chicken and Mushroom Saute

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
Many people made the comment that this recipe was a good base recipe- so I made a few changes and it was just yummy! The only changes I made were: I seasoned the flour with garlic powder, pepper & seasoning salt first and I sauted a chopped onion with the mushrooms. For ease I used chicken stock. I also added 1/4c fat free sour cream & a ton of pepper right before serving the dish. My family is full of picky eaters & they gobbled this up (after making sure there were no mushrooms visable on their plate!) The chicken was delicious & this recipe is a keeper!

Chicken In Sour Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
I made this recipe, but tried to cut the fat and calories. I used cooking spray instead of the oil, I used fat free sour cream, fat free condensed mushroom soup and boneless, skinless chicken thighs. I served this dish over rice... oh my goodness. How delicious! This is a fantastic recipe. The dill & lemon juice just give the recipe a great tangy kick. This recipe was a huge success & is a new family favourite. Thanks!

Cabbage Roll Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
A very unique dish. I ended up using twice the amount of tomato sauce because the casserole did seem very dry. I used a spicy tomato sauce which gave it a delicious kick. I didn't use the cheese to avoid the unnecessary calories & I don't think it was missed! Does anyone else find it funny that almost every other dish on allrecipes.com has a ton of cheese in it? Once it came out of the oven, the casserole was just okay. I left it in the fridge overnight & then reheated some for lunch the following day. Like most tomato based dishes- this casserole is meant to sit & "blend"! The second day it was just fantastic. Take a chance on this recipe! You won't regret it.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
Fantastic. Everyone that tried these cookies claimed they were the best I've ever made- and I've made many. This is the cookie I'll be making for years to come. Thanks so much!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
The dough wasn't really dough, it was more crumb like. It took a lot of manipulating to make a ball stay together. The cookies did come out beautifully at 8 minutes... soo good I didn't even care that the dough was a little difficult to work with! I had such high hopes thinking I'd finally found a fantastic sugar cookie recipe. Well, I just ate one and all I could taste was flour. I will probably try it again with less flour. Maybe 2 1/4 instead.
