Matrimonial Bliss

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2008
I made this recipe because a member named Skuba wanted to know what Matrimonial Bliss looks like! Well now we know!!! LOL! One thing I now know is how delicious it is also! I made half the recipe and put it in 4 muffin cups. I made it as written except I used strawberry jam and walnuts instead of rhubarb and coconut. I highly recommend this wonderful dessert. I think I'll surprise Mr. Lillian with it on Valentines Day! ♥ ♥

Easy Mashed Potato and Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
This was very good! It should be called a Mexican knish. I used 2 leeks, 1 red pepper, 1 green pepper and 3 large cloves of garlic, because my kids don't like the ones named in the recipe. You could use any veggies that you like. I'm glad I read the reviews, because blandness would of been a problem if I didn't add cayenne pepper, chili powder and cumin, along with the salt and pepper stated in the recipe. I sprinkled these seasonings on the veggies before roasting them. I used homemade mashed potatoes. Also, this recipe calls for 8 oz. shredded cheddar, but that is only enough cheese for 8 enchiladas. I would use 12 to 16 oz. of shredded cheddar. There is a lot of prep and mess when making this recipe but it is surely worth it!

Cucumber Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
This was extremely good! I used an English cucumber. I didn't have grapes, so I used cranraisins. Instead of a tart apple I used a Macintosh. This was a very fresh and tasty salad. I loved the contrast of the tart sour cream and sweetness of the cranraisins and apples. I also loved the freshness of the cucumbers and the parsley. All these different flavors just dance on your tongue! This is a very impressive salad!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
This was extremely good! I subbed chicken for shrimp. I doubled the sauce and reduced the pepper by half as suggested by another member. I added a little cornstarch to thicken the sauce. The rest of the recipe, I made as written. I served this with grated parmesan cheese.

Chicken Soup with Stuffed Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
This soup was very good! I did have to add grated romano cheese and parsley. The noodles were not as good. They were missing something. I would add grated cheese and maybe some sauteed garlic to the breadcrumb mixture. The noodles get 3 stars in my opinion. I'll have to play around with it a little more. Also, this recipe doesn't state when to add the veggies, so I added them after I skimmed the foam. Very good recipe though!

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
This was so very good! Its very expensive also! This cost $11.50 for 35 pieces. I used Dove brand chocolate covered caramels ($4.49), butter snap pretzels ($1.99) and store brand pecan halves ($4.99)...but is was easy and very elegant looking. I'll make this again, but only for special occasions.

Cocktail Meatballs IV

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2008
This was very good...because after reading the reviews I tweaked this recipe. I added 1 large clove of garlic(minced), 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper to the groung beef. It was still a little bland so I sprinkled salt + pepper into the sauce. I also used equal parts chili sauce and jelly. I will make this again and tweak the meatballs a little more. Overall a good recipe!

Apple Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
This was pretty good. I only used half the sugar because I added a cinnamon spice drizzle on top, which made it just sweet enough. I only used 4 Tbls. of butter instead of 1/2 cup shortening. I also added 1 tsp. cinnamon powder as suggested by another member. I think I would double the apple next time because I really couldn't taste any. The batter is very dry until the apples are added, then it becomes more like a drop batter. I used parchment instead of a greased cookie sheet and it worked fine.

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008

Tangy Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
This was extremely good! I used an English cucumber, so I skipped the step for salting it and letting it sit before rinsing. It didn't need that because it was not bitter. The only changes I made was to use roasted red peppers instead of tomatoes and I also added black olives.I made the dressing exactly as written and it was perfect! I love the slight sweetness of the dressing in combination with the cucumbers. I will be making this quite often!

Maryland Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2008
This was very good! Okay...I didn't have any Old Bay Seasoning, so I used seasoned salt instead. I loved it!!! Never thought to use anything but plain old salt. Now I'll have to try other pumpkin seed recipes. Maybe I'll use smoked paprika next time! Also...I didn't need to use any oil because I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Worked great!

Spicy Korean Red Pepper Cucumbers

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
This was very good even though I made changes to it. I couldn't find Korean hot sauce so I used Frank's hot sauce. I also used a yellow onion instead of green. I also added 1 tsp of sugar as suggested by another member. I liked the contrast of flavors between the hot sauce and the sesame oil. This dressing was not too spicy, which I also liked. I will definitely be making this again.

Apple Pan Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
This was very good. I made it as written except I omitted the thyme and I subbed walnuts and cranraisins for the pine nuts and currants. I think the pine nuts would of been better especially if they were toasted and chopped. I also chopped the cranraisins. I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper before sauteing. I thickened the pan juices with a little water and cornstarch. My apples of choice were 2 golden delicious and 1 red delicious. I served this over white rice. Keep the salt shaker handy. I had to salt it while eating. This recipe is a nice combo of sweet and spicy.

Egg in a Boat

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
Its a very easy and fun way to make your eggs and toast all in one step. I used wheat bread and I browned the hole cut outs in the frying pan and served it with the eggs for dipping. I've made this many times since I found this recipe. Try it, its fun!

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
This was extremely good! I realized after I made it that I forgot to add the sour cream, but it was still great! I can imagine how much greater it would be with it! I followed the recipe as written except I added 16oz of cottage cheese instead of 12oz and I only used half the butter and bread crumbs. I also sprinkled chopped parsley on top for color. I will definitely be making this again.

Maria's Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
This was amazingly good! I used homemade sauce and I coated the chicken breasts in grated parmesan cheese, garlic powder and black pepper. I also added 1/4 cup of grated parmesan cheese to the spinach mixture. I made the full amount of this mixture which was enough for 5 large chicken breasts. I baked it for 1 hour. During the last 15 minutes of baking I topped it with the mozzarella. I highly recommend this recipe!

Easy Apple Coleslaw

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
This was very good! I tweaked it to fit my tastes. I omitted the onions and peppers. I added 1/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup chopped walnuts. I also used red cabbage. I highly recommend using the cheddar because its a nice contrast between the apples and the sweet dressing. This is a very unique and tasty cole slaw!

Simple Baked Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This was very good. It is exactly what the title says. I like it because it is a low fat, healthy recipe. I served it plain but I agree that it would be perfect ontop of french toast, pancakes or even ice cream. The changes I made were to use fat free half'n half instead of milk. I used raspberries instead of raisins and I used a combo of white sugar and brown sugar. Very nice recipe for apples!

Five Minute Ice Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
This was very good. I made it with fat free half'n half. I only used 1/2 the sugar and it was sweet enough. I used fresh picked red raspberries. I agree with the other reviewers who said it was more like a sorbet than an ice cream. Still very good. I think I'll use more half'n half next time to make it more creamy. I will definitely make this again so I can try other flavors. UPDATE: I made this again and used almost 1 cup of fat free half'n half. This made it a little creamier. I also used frozen canned peaches and 1/2 the sugar. It was perfect, but I still had to freeze it to get it to the consistency of ice cream. Now I give it 5 stars!
