Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
I scaled the recipe to 2 servings. Only used 1/8 cup of mayo, left out the shallots, subbed 1 tablespoon of ground flaxseed for the walnuts, used canned albacore tuna in water and only a few dashes of curry powder. The apple, curry and nutty taste add a new twist to a tuna fish sandwich.

Garithes Yiouvetsi

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
I'd have to give this 3 1/2 stars...hubby liked it but my kids didn't like the wine sauce. I used garden fresh tomatoes, a mix of wine and chicken broth. I only had cooked shrimp, so I just put in the last three minutes of cooking on the stove and did not cook in the oven. Put the feta cheese on before serving.

Fried Cabbage II

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
Another recipe I found here I haven't made in years. I scaled to 3 servings and left out the sugar and vinegar. While cooking I cover my cabbage to get it to wilt faster. Topped with crumbled turkey bacon.

Cabbage Rolls III

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
My mom used to make these growing up and I hated the cabbage. This was my first attempt at making them and they turned out pretty good. I scaled this recipe to 6 servings and used ground turkey in place of the ground sausage. In place of the water I covered my cabbage rolls with a large can of tomato sauce and baked in the oven on 350 for 2 hours.

Easy Deviled Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
I scaled the recipe down to 3 servings for 3 large chicken breasts. Baked 1 hour (covered with foil first 30 minutes). I mixed in panko bread crumbs with the italian flavored for more of a crunch. Watch closely as not to overbake or it will be dry.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
I only had 16 oz. package of ground turkey, so I added 4 oz. of ground sage sausage. I always mixed in about 1/4 cup of freshly grated asiago/romano cheese in with the meat before cooking. Placed in a slower cooker on low for 3 hours with the Spaghetti with marinara sauce recipe.

Romano Cheese Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
Very quick and tasty! I scaled this recipe to 4-5 servings. Mixed half low-fat mayo with half pack of softened cream cheese. Didn't cut into pieces but used on french bread slices and served with pasta. No leftovers here!

Coconut Pumpkin Nut Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
Very Moist! I scaled the recipe to 10 servings and used 2 mini loaf pans. I subbed canola oil in place of vegetable oil. Also, I had to use sweeten coconut so I cut the sugars in half. Baked 35 mins. @ 325.

White Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
My kids scarfed this down!!! I didn't have enough ricotta, so I used half ricotta and half french onion dip. I added chopped pepperoni "after" (because of the grease) removing from the oven. Only used 1 teaspoon of the dry packet seasoning. Although the dip didn't look too appetizing, I will make again.

Feta Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
I didn't have flavored feta cheese, so I mixed regular feta with sun dried tomato pesto. This added even more flavor. I drizzled melted butter over the chicken 10 minutes before removing from the oven. Try to keep all of your chicken breasts the same size so as not to overcook. Next time I will cover with foil for the first 15-20 minutes.

Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
This is a quick and delicious marinade that my family really likes! I have made this several times and it's great to throw together in a few minutes before grilling. My only change was to cut back on the cayenne because of the kids.

Early Morning Oven Roasted New Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
With a small amount of butter and EVOO, I sauteed garlic with the potatoes in the pan before baking in the oven. These were crispy and a bit dry (may have been cooked too long). So I decided to use the same pan with drippings and saute some frozen peppers and onions in butter and added to the potatoes. Make sure you try and cut your potatoes all the same size.

Vinegar Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
I was quite pleased with how moist this chicken turned out! I subbed 4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts because that is what I had on hand. Served on a bed of onions, sauteed red, yellow and green peppers.

Tomato, Basil, and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
A great way to use my garden veggies and herbs! I used sweet baby cherry tomatoes instead of romas. I also removed the seeds from the cucumber, sprinkled the two halves with salt and turned upside down to drain for a few minutes before slicing. A nice summer salad.

Citrus Lemonade

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
A light, fresh tasting lemonade. I followed the recipe as stated. However, I felt the limes overpowered it. It did not have a sweet or tart taste. Next time I will only use 2 limes, plus add 2 more lemons. Instead of juicing all of the fruit, I sliced them in 1/4" - 1/2" slices and removed the seed pieces. I placed the sliced fruit in a bowl and added the sugar. I mashed slightly with a potato masher and let sit for 1 hour before adding the water and ice. This makes for a nicer presentation.

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
My family loved these! I scaled the recipe back to 18 servings and used Rick's buttercream frosting recipe from this site.

Swink's Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
Average. The canned tomato soup was overpowering. My family kept asking what *is* that taste. I used 1 1/2 cups of water and 1 tsp. of cumin. I did not have 2 lbs of ground beef, so I used 1 lb. ground beef, 1/2 lb ground turkey and 1/2 lb. ground sausage. Make sure you *drain* the ground beef (I always do) *before* adding seasoning mix and putting in the crockpot or it will be runny and greasy. My family ate this but ask me to go back to making chili with *beer instead of tomato soup!*

Walnut Biscotti

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
Taste good, but was very crumbly. I thought they tasted better the next day after being in an air tight container. I halved the recipe and only used almond and pure vanilla extract. Made 1 12" rope (didn't like the mini size). I used a SILPAT to bake on but the bottoms still got to brown for me. Decided to use the rest of dough and formed a larger loaf. Baked 10 minutes longer. I melted white and dark chocolate to garnish/drizzle.

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
Good, but not great. I used canola oil in place of vegetable and marinated for 6 hours in the fridge. I think for the best flavor I may marinate overnight next time.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
So good! I scaled the recipe back to 3 servings and used thawed chicken breasts. Cut back on the sugar and used Al's BBQ sauce (recipe from this site). Cooked on high for 3 hours, then shredded and topped on a baked potato! This would be delicious in a wrap.
