Egg Salad Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
My husband and I thought this recipe was perfect. Beware, though! It has tons of calories from the mayo content and is very salty. We both thought it tasted great and wouldn't alter a thing.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
This recipe did not work for me. Too much sauce and too watery. I ended up draining out most of the sauce to see if I could get the chicken to get a nice coating in the end. No dice.

Joe's General Tso's Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2010
The recipe was okay, but I don't think it was much like the General Tso's chicken that I usually get as take-out. Maybe that was because I used sherry as I didn't have rice wine? I doubled the recipe and the sauce, but the sauce evaporated away as soon as it hit the hot pan. I'll probably continue to look for a recipe more to my liking for this dish.

Tangy Coleslaw

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Wow! This is a nice tangy, crunchy, and refreshing coleslaw made without mayonnaise. It's a keeper recipe as is with *no* changes! Thanks for sharing it.

Spicy Shredded Beef

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
The recipe came out very tasty, but I did add one minced jalapeno pepper for flavor. I never did shred the beef, but cooked it a little less time and just served it on hot rice. In addition, I used diced, fresh tomatoes from my garden instead of canned tomatoes. At the very end, I just added a tiny bit of water to keep it from burning. The sauce was nice!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2010
I thought this was a great recipe. It's a wonderful way to use up zucchini. Plus, it's an easy recipe to follow. I didn't make the frosting as I don't like things that are overly sweet. The batter starts out dry, but it should be mixed until the zucchini moistens the whole batter evenly. I added a tsp of dry spearmint leaves when mixing the batter ingredients. Then, the semi-solid batter should be pressed evenly into the baking pan. It's very, very tasty when done.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
Excellent recipe. I used 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper, but I'd up the salt a bit. I squeezed out the zucchini to make it dry beofre making the pancake batter. I added one garlic, finely minced. The next time I make these pancakes, I'll add one scallion, finely chopped for more color.

Spinach and Potato Frittata

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
This is an easy and tasty recipe, and one that I highly recommend. I needed to add a few more minutes at the end to get the eggs to completely set. I was out of spinach, but just used salad mix for the greens. I also minced my garlic instead of crushing it. My husband loved this dish. Try it!

Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
This is really very good ice cream. Here are the few changes I made. I used 2 oz. of semi-sweet chocolate shavings instead of the mini-chips. I used 1/2 cup of packed, fresh mint leaves (immersion blended into the milk) instead of peppermint extract. I omitted the green food coloring (preferring the natural color of food). I used whole milk instead of 2% milk (preferring a creamier flavor). I churned the ice cream in my ice cream maker for 20 minutes before adding the chocolate shavings. Then I churned the mixture for another 5 minutes before transferring the soft-serve ice cream into air-tight containers to further harden. My husband and daughter both gave this flavor a thumbs up!

Balsamic Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2010
These are okay, but I'm not that crazy about them. I find the heavy balsamic vinegar taste a bit much for me. I also think the recipe is too fussy. I see no reason why the potatoes have to first be prepared in a pan on the stove before being transferred to the oven. Too many dirty dishes!

Tomato Green Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
This soup tasted rather bland to me. It's probably not one I'd choose to make again.

Streusel Rhubarb Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
Excellent! Sweet, but not too sweet. Moist with a crispy topping. I forgot to add the pecans, but I definitley will put them in next time. The only change I made was to use 2 cups of rhubarb instead of what the recipe called for. I baked both loaves for 60 minutes.

Marzetti® Hawaiian Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I used nappa cabbage, fresh pineapple, sliced almonds, and my own slaw dressing for this recipe. It was good but still seemed to be missing something. I'm not sure what. I think it was kind of bland. I'll keep the slaw for myself to eat, but I'm pretty sure my family will not be eating it with me.

Thai Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
The chicken tasted good, but I made a lot of changes to the original recipe. Like others suggested, I added 3/4 cup of water, halved teh peanut butter, and made the suace first. Then, when I was ready to cook the chicken, the sauce was too thin so I had to thicken it up with corn starch. I made my own hoison sauce, by the way. I'd have been happier with a recipe I could follow from start to finish without fewer changes.

Spring Strawberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
Love this recipe. So did my hubby. My changes: I changed/cut the vegetable oil to 1/2 cup olive oil and cut the the sugar to 1/4 cup. I added four small strawberries to the dressing and used an immersion blender to blend the dressing. I added 1/2 cup toasted, sliced almonds and a small red onion, thinly sliced, to the salad. I topped it with cubed feta cheese. What can I say? It was perfect! Even hubby liked it, and he usually will not eat fruit that is in something other than a dessert.

Confetti Salad by Jean Carper

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
It's an odd combination of tastes. I'm not sure that it's something my family favors.

Favorite Black Walnut Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This was a most appreciated recipe. My husband and I collected black walnuts from three trees in our neighborhood. We hulled the nuts, cured them, cracked them, chopped them, and put them into this recipe. I'd never before experienced the taste of black walnuts (very different from English walnuts). Maybe I loved the taste so much because of all the work we put into preparing the nuts. This recipe, however, was easy to make, and the resulting cookies were quite delicious.

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
I was not happy with this recipe at all. I made it as directed, just leaving out the teriyaki sauce. The patties were dry and without much flavor. I will not make this again.

Corrigan's Minestrone

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
This didn't work for me. It was way underseasoned and, after the macaroni cooked, had no broth left in it at all. Flavor was also missing. It probably would have been better to saute the onions and garlic until browned before adding the rest of the ingredients. I'll pass on this minestrone.

Extra Easy Hummus

Very easy to make but definitely not as tasty as I'd like.
