Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
this was my first time cooking fresh eggplant... these were really great and were not a big production/intimidating as i had anticipated — super easy! my boyfriend loved it! we had it over angel hair pasta. i used one medium-sized eggplant and i sweated the slices as several suggested for 30 minutes and added parmesan and garlic to the breadcrumbs (contadina). i double-dipped/breaded the slices and baked them for 10 on each side; they weren't very crispy/browned after 5. and used barilla's basic marinara sauce which worked well. watch your cooking time for the whole casserole - mine only needed about 20 minutes. even though i only used 1 eggplant and my boyfriend had hearty seconds, we have a ton of leftovers and i set aside some of the slices for sandwiches - so good!

Green Pea Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
as a disclaimer, i've never been one to count calories or shy away from lots of butter or cream... but this was pretty heavy and gross. my whole house reeked of an overwhelming smell of butter and i probably took off 5 years of my lifespan with this meal. it wasn't horrible, but i won't be making it again. if you decide to make it though, i left out the water chestnuts per several suggestions, but i think it would have helped the flavor/texture to leave them in. i used canned peas as listed, but i think using frozen peas would make it feel less like an institutional meal. also, i would cut the amount of butter in half (the ritz crackers will provide plenty) - don't use margarine - it's transfat!

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
was really excited to make these because i love coconut cookies, but was disappointed with the end product. maybe it was because i used sweetened coconut flakes (that's all the store had) instead of unsweetened? they were a bit too sweet yet bland. i tried adding chocolate chips to half the batch, which helped, but still not great. overall not great and my boyfriend (who also loves coconut) was also underwhelmed.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
i've made this several times for my boyfriend and house guests... everyone loves it! unfortunately, i always forget to get grand marnier which probably tastes great, but everyone loves it without too! i serve it with homemade whip cream and fresh berries. yum!

Stuffed Peppers My Way

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2007
my boyfriend and i were obsessed with these for a while. i didn't add any additional salt (as another reviewer stated, the feta provides enough) and i prefer to use orange and yellow peppers because they have a sweeter flavor. it's good if you add veggie meat crumbles too (you'll probably need another pepper to fill)
