Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
This cake is fantastic with the recipe as written. I shredded the zucchini on the small shred side of my box shredder and it completely disappear into the cake while it baked. My 6 year old daughter heard there was zucchini in it, didn't want to have anything to do with it, but asked for another piece after she tried it. My 9 year old talked about how he loved the texture - the top was a bit crunchy and the inside was so soft. This recipe is a keeper!

Apple Breakfast Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
Very good. I substituted 1/2 cup crisco + 3 tbsp water instead of butter. 3/4 cup sugar I used 1 cup ap flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour I used 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie seasoning I shredded apples with the peels. Moist, tasty, absolutely sweet enough - baked it for 55 min and it could have used the extra 5 min - it was a LITTLE too soft in the very middle. SO GOOD though. I will make it again.

Isaiah's Pretzel Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
This tasted really good, had a nice crunch and the chicken came very tender. I used all the listed ingredients, but half the cayenne because it was for the kids too. I used large breasts and cut them into 4 quarters. I ran out of crumbs after 3 breasts - used italian style breadcrumbs for the remaining chicken. Make MORE pretzel crumbs or use less chicken because the pretzel crumbs were MUCH better! Ran out of egg too - use 3 eggs or 3 large breasts, not 4. I also put it in the oven at 400 for 20 min. on a foil lined baking sheet instead of frying - I'm just no good at frying on the stove top. :)

Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Stuffed with Spinach and Ricotta

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
It was ok - I didn't cremate the bacon before I put it in, and I really think you have to do the bacon VERY well done or else it's bouncy, and I can't stand that texture. Also, the brothy sauce that happens in the baking dish isn't really for me. Not my thing.

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
Really good lasagna. I served it at my daughter's birthday party and my family loved it too. I used no boil noodles and since I was chopping all the veggies anyway, I made my own sauce with a 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes, italian spices, a little sugar and salt and pepper and minced garlic and olive oil. I did add some left over jarred I had in the fridge during the layering because I didn't know if I was going to have enough sauce. It came out great.

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
I really loved this. I ate all the leftovers myself - great when heated up and put over a salad the next day.

Whole Wheat Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
Maybe I did this wrong, but they came out like kashi cookies. They were gummy in the middle and didn't puff up into muffins at all. I'll try a different muffin recipe next time.

Broccoli Beef II

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2008
Yum! My first attempt at making Asian food myself. I used flour instead of cornstarch, the water/boullion that the pasta boiled in, in place of the 1/2 cup beef broth, yellow onion instead of green and frozen broccoli instead of fresh. I put the onion in with the beef, but added the mushrooms with the liquid, after the beef was browned. Then I added the frozen brocolli, covered and simmered for 10-15 min. yum yum yum. Oh, slice the beef super thin.

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
I loved it. I love quesadilla's in general, but the lime and cilantro make it special. Followed it exactly and it was really tasty.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
Yaow! This is good Chili. Best we've ever made actually. Hubby and I made it last night. Only made a few changes. Used just under 3lbs of meatloaf mix (ground beef, veal and pork). used 1 40 oz. can kidney beans, drained and 1 14.5 oz can's goya kidney beans in sauce (didn't say spicy, couldn't find that) No celery. 1 long hot pepper instead of chile peppers. began by browning about 2 strips of real bacon in the bottom of the pot cut up small, instead of bacon bits. No beer, but used 1 can of diet Dr. pepper. We made it late last night so my husband could bring it to work for lunch during the week. I wasn't even going to have any before we put it away into containers, but it tasted SO GOOD I had a bowl of chili at MIDNIGHT last night. Thank you so much for this recipe.

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
I love stuffed peppers and since I'm on South Beach, I was looking for something that didn't have rice or noodles involved. This one was great. I changed it by using ground beef instead of turkey, minced garlic instead of powder, left out the tomato paste and used 1/2 box frozen spinach instead of fresh. I also added 1 2% cheddar kraft single slice to the top of each pepper in the last 5 minutes of cooking. The peppers were a little tough, but I didn't use the tinfoil in the beginning and that must have been why. I put them back in for another 15 minutes and they were more tender then. REALLY GOOD.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
Most delicious pork I have EVER had. I'm considering reposting the recipe because instead of putting it in the oven, I used my pressure cooker. It came out SO good. I used all the same ingredients, but I used 2.40 lbs of pork (what I had) and I added 1 cup of water and put it all right into the 6 qt. pressure cooker. NO MARINATING! Put in on the stove on high till it started rocking and knocked the heat down to medium to keep it moving gently. I let it rock for 40 minutes, then turned off the heat and let the pressure come down on it's own. When I opened the cooker, the meat was falling apart and juicy and WONDERFUL. I will make this for everyone who will let me! I loved it.

Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
yummy! My husband liked these too. We are on the South Beach Diet, so these were great. I used jarred spaghetti sauce for the topping though instead of ketchup and brown sugar. I also put the loaves in a pam-sprayed muffin tin. Maid 8 meat muffins. Perfect.

Cola Pot Roast I

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
I liked it a lot. Followed it exactly, but with Diet Coke. I was the only one in my house even willing to try it (not a bunch of meat eaters here) but I had leftovers all week. I sliced it thin, heated it up and put it over salad the next day! (sounds wierd but I'm on South Beach) It was good!

Spicy Oven Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
I liked it a lot, I messed up a little though. I used garlic SALT instead of garlic powder and it came out way too salty. I think it will be delicious when I do it again the "right" way. I used skinnless, boneless chicken breasts sliced in half to make 2 thin flat pieces. This worked well, no pounding required.

Slow Cooker Sweet and Tangy Chicken

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
Super easy and I had the ingredients on hand, but my slow cooker BROKE when I tried to turn it on (with all ingredients inside) so I put them in a casserole and put them in the fridge till later. I baked it covered at 350* for 1 hour and it came great. Probably would have been even better for just 1 hour. I used 5 breasts, about 18 oz of Jack Daniels bbq sauce and 1/3 of a 20 oz. can of pineapple chunks. I'll try crushed pineapple next time. My mom really liked it too and she isn't much of a chicken person.
