Deb's Scallops Florentine

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Oooooh this was delicious! I made a few changes...1) Did not boil the scallops first 2) Used 1/2 and 1/2 in place of the heavy cream 3) Seasoned with garlic and onion powder 4) Used fresh spinach - added it to the liquid so it cooked down 5) Added the mozzarella to the liquid so it cooked into the sauce 6) After covering the scallops with the sauce I sprinkled with parmesan and and Italian bread crumbs, omitting the Old Bay 7) Baked for 20 minutes

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
This was probably the best fish I have ever had! I really only made a few changes. 1) I hate mayo so I substituted sour cream 2) Used celery seed instead of salt 3) Added 1/8 tsp. garlic powder 4) I lined a baking sheet with foil and sprayed the foil with nonstick spray 5) Broiled with the rack as close to the broiler as I could for 5 minutes. I did not turn the fish over 6) Put the mixture on the fish and broiled two more minutes

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
These were okay...but not exactly what I was looking for. They were heavy and not light and fluffy like I had hoped. Will probably try a different recipe next time.

Rempel Family Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
This came out great! I didn't have crackers, so I added 1 cup of seasoned bread crumbs. Instead of steak sauce I used honey bbq sauce. Before baking I brushed the top with a mustard/ketchup/brown sugar mixture. The flavor was just right...not too salty, not too sweet. Served with garlic cheddar smashed potatoes. Will be making again!

Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This past weekend was maple weekend here in NY! Made me in the mood for fritters....these were even better than the samples we had at the maple farms! The only thing I did differently was to use a 12 oz. bag of corn you steam in the microwave. I also added a splash of vanilla and a 1/4 cup of sugar to the batter. Great served with warm syrup!

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
This was good...but not great. Even after substituting salsa for the tomato sauce and adding chili powder....it was still lacking something. Maybe next time I'll try using taco seasoning as others have suggested.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
This was great! I didn't have coconut milk - just cream of coconut leftover from pina coladas. I used 3 Tbs. of cream of coconut mixed into a hot cup of milk to substitute. I didn't have the tomato sauce so I used a 6 oz. tomato paste and I didn't have stewed tomatoes so I used diced. I simmered uncovered for about 25 minutes and served over white rice. Delicious!

Chocolate Cobbler

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
I followed the recipe exact and it came out wonderful! When you pour the water over the mixture - don't be scared if it looks like a watery mess. I was very leery of it, but somehow it works....and it turns out to be a cakey top with a pudding layer underneath that is delicious!

Uglies

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
These came out great! I added a whole onion and a few cloves of freshly chopped garlic. I also added pepper to taste. I ended up adding some of the cheese to the beef mixture to hold it together like a glue. While I rolled the biscuit dough out, I didn't use any flour. Also, I ended up making roughly 16 cups, not 8. Only making 8, it seems like there would be tons of filling leftover.

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
This was a great base recipe and the beauty of it is that you can throw in whatever you want to add to it. 1) I cut the raw chicken into chunks and sauteed with onions and garlic 2) Added a bag of steamer veggies (carrots and peas) 3) Added shredded mont. jack cheese to the mixture 4) Added garlic, onion powder, and thyme - to taste 5) I also used an entire package of egg noodles 6) Added some milk for moisture. Although this tastes great fresh, it's even better left over!

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie

Loved this! I didn't scald the milk - just used cold from the fridge. Also, didn't use any food coloring. Baked for about 35 minutes. Taste and consistency was great!

Beef Nacho Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
This was delicious and simple to make. I did make the following changes: 1) Added a packet of taco seasoning to the beef 2) Added a chopped onion to the ground beef while cooking 3) Used sour cream instead of the mayo. You would think the chips get soggy, but they don't! This tastes just as good leftover too!

Simple Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
I made a few changes which really enhanced the flavor! 1) Added chopped garlic, a chopped onion, and fresh sliced mushrooms to the ground beef while cooking 2) Added about a cup of beef broth while simmering 3) Added a nice splash of white wine while simmering. I also used a whole pound of egg noodles. Adding the extra liquid stretched the mixture and made plenty to go with all the pasta.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
Very good! I used 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown. Also, I creamed the butter and sugar together first before adding the eggs and vanilla. Other than that, I followed exactly! Baked for about 9 mintues. Used white chocolate chips.

Sweet and Sour Chicken I

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I just made this for dinner, and it was a HUGE hit! My husband said I could teach the local Chinese restaurants a thing or two (lol). I made a few changes, but nothing major. 1) I had a 20 oz can of pineapple and used all the juice from it 2) I used apple cider vinegar because it's all I had 3) Instead of food coloring I used juice from a jar of maraschino cherries 4) Didn't have self rising flour so I added an extra 1/2 tsp. of salt and 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder. 5) Seasoned the chicken with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder 6) I didn't layer anything or use a pepper. I just served white rice with the chicken and sauce.
