Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
Very good recipe with no changes at all. I made these into 22 muffins, baking them for 30 minutes - until the tops were lightly browned. They came out perfectly. When properly cooled, the top was crunchy and the inside texture was very nice. Okay. So I cheated and ate the first one warm and fresh out of the oven. I like the idea of another person who suggested adding a pinch of nutmeg to this recipe. I think I'll do that the next time. In the meantime, I'll simply eat all the ones I've already made...or perhaps I'll share them. There's no way anyone is going to know there is zucchini in these muffins unless they spy a speck of green here and there! :-)

Savory Herb Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
My family loved this recipe! The only changes I made were to omit the onion powder (I didn't have any on hand) and use oil instead of butter (I don't mix meat and dairy). I thought the soy sauce was going to overpower the recipe, but it did not. Very quick to make...plus it's very tasty!

Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
I made these cookies exactly as directed. I have no complaints about anything. They came out perfectly and were delicious. I love the texture...crispy edges and soft insides. My only suggestion would be to double this recipe. There were not enough cookies remaining for others after my husband and I started tasting them. :-)

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
I thought this recipe was great! Of course, I love foods that are heavy on the garlic. I wondered why sesame seeds were added to a recipe with tahini (also sesame seeds), but it was a nice accent. This is definitely a keeper. I'm a lazy cook so I added the olive oil to the food processor. :-)

Brussels Sprouts with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
Changes I made to this recipe: sliced the mushrooms instead of cooking them whole, cooked the brussel sprouts for 10 minutes instead of 15. The vegetables looked nice when served, and my husband liked it. I though they tasted kind of bland but am not sure what was needed to give them more of a zing.

Lemon Turkey with Couscous Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly as written except for roasting the turkey an extra 15 minutes. When I was done, I had a nicely presenting dinner in a serving pan. However, I was somewhat disappointed with the result. I expected both the turkey breast and the couscous to be much more flavorful than they turned out to be. The recipe was easy enough to make, but it still seemed to be lacking a special "zing".

Rugelach

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
My husband gave this recipe a 10-star rating. These were very much fun to make, een if a bit time-consuming with having to chill the dough twice. They came out perfectly with a very flakey consistency.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
These were good. I made them exactly as written without any problem. I did not use the frosting so that they would not be overly sweet.

Moroccan Salmon Cakes with Garlic Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
This recipe was a disaster!!! All of the cakes fell completely apart (and, yes, the oil was hot enough) and I ended up with a bowl of browned salmon cake hash instead of beautiful patties. :-( Nevertheless, this recipe gets 3 stars instead of 1 star because, when I tasted the "hash", it was delicious. Go figure! I'm takin this "Moroccan Salmon Hash" to a friend's house for a Moroccan dinner tonight. No kidding! P.S. I didn't bother to make the Garlic Mayo. :-)

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
These were excellent. Most of the first batch I made I sent away as a gift! They came out crisp on the outside but soft on the inside and were delicious. I tried to figure out exactly how many minutes they needed and finally settled on 11 minutes as perfect. I needed a bit more than 2 Tbsp of sugar for the finally rollings! :-)

Moist Persimmon Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
I made the recipe exactly as stated, baking each tray of cookies for 10 minutes, and they came out perfectly. I was surprised how soft they were, but they were done when I checked the centers. I'd never had persimmons before, but someone gave my husband this fruit. I found this recipe and the rest is history! :-)

Chili Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
My family liked this recipe...although I changed it quite a bit due to lack of items from the ingredient list. I subsituted fresh diced tomatoes and minced garlic for the canned tomatoes with garlic. I substituted fried green chili peppers (from my garden) for canned ones. I substituted one can of black beans and one can of white cannelini beans for the other 3 cans of beans. The result was a very tasty dish which I served on rice and my husband is now eating for breakfast! :-)

Broccoli Bean Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
This dish was okay. My son said it tasted "just like vegetables". I didn't have pimentoes, so I chopped a fesh tomato on top of the beans for the red color. Although I drained the broccoli and canned beans well, there was a watery bottom to this dish after it was fully baked. This dish was just not lively enough for my taste. I'm curious as to how others here will like it.

Waldorf Salad II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
Fabulous! I loved not having to peel the apples. I used two different kinds of apples--one had darker green skin than the other, and I used dark raisins for contratin color. I hate measuring lemon juice so I just squeezed in the juice of half a lemon. It worked just fine. I'm serving it for dinner tonight on a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce. I need to stop eating it so there will be some left to serve! :-)

Corn and Avocado Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
I loved it! Okay...so I made a few changes. Here's what I did, but it came out great. I used one can or corn, drained instead of fresh corn. I omitted the red pepper (I had none at the time). I added one can of beans, drained & rinsed. I used kidney beans because I had no black beans. I added one jalapeno pepper, finely minced...because we love picante in my family. I omitted the crush red pepper flakes...preferring the fresh jalapeno oer the dried red pepper. I substituted fresh cilantro for the fresh oreano. Itw as a hit!

Dump Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
The recipe is indeed easy to make. The bars come out soft on the inside and crispy on the outside. They are easy to cut and serve. The only thing lacking, I think, is the buttery taste that is missing in those scrumptious brownies that use real butter in the recipe.

Peach Cake II

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
Very easy to make! Just put everything into one bowl, mix, pour into pan and bake. Do bake it for the full 50 minutes to be sure it is thoroughly baked. The only thing I changed in this recipe was to to *not* peel the fresh peaches. There was no need as the fiber will do everyone good, and there is less work to do in preparing this cake.

Citrus Tilapia

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
Delicious and so *very* easy to make. My husband and son loved it. Both commented on how good the sauce was. It's a good thing I started out with double the recipe, or I'd not have had enough to feed us. We gobbled this fish down. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe. I did have to add some extra butter and olive oil to the pan as I was frying the fish, but that was only because I made more fish than the recipe originally called for.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
Wonderful and easy recipe! Three of us ate it all up fresh out of the oven with not a bite left over. My friend, who is on an Atkins diet, even got to have dinner with us tonight since this quiche has no crust! I used a combo of Italian mixed cheeses, Parmesan and Swiss ( what was in my frig) and some chopped fresh parsley (which I needed to use up). I even gave this recipe to my friend before she left my house. Thanks for sharing it.
