Chocolate Chip Coffee Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
I was hoping that these cookies tasted just like Kahlua (used 6 Tbsp.), but I give it 5***** because of the little different flavor it gives compared to regular chocolate chip cookies. I actually like these better. Besides increasing the Kahlua, I also added nuts. Recipe is a keeper.

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
I saved and froze all the woody ends of the asparagus. After I pureed I used a sieve to remove the stocky pulp which didn't puree well. Came out tasting great. A little more work but worth it because I didn't want to waste any aspargus.

Easy Sweet Potatoes with Kahlua

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
Made the recipe for 3 servings instead of 6. Called for 1/4 cup butter - used 3 tsps Butter Buds to cut fat and calories, 2 tsps water and 1 Tbsp butter. Next time I will use just Butter Buds and water. Called for 1/3 cup brown sugar - used only 2 Tbsp. It was more than sweet enough for me. To cut calories I will use only 1 Tbsp. next time. I liked the addition of Kahlua. Very tasty and would make again. My changes are only because I prefer to try and cut calories for myself. Didn't add raisins or pecans. Boyfriend also liked.

Pierogies and Cabbage

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
Very good. Not sure what a Pierogie is. I used what I had on hand, Torteiloni filled with Ricotta & Spinach. Will make again.

Sweet Russian Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I love the flavor of this soup. The change I would make next time is to shred the cabbage or cut smaller pieces of cabbage instead of wedges. Other vegetables could be added, but a delicious recipe as is.

Cabbage Patch Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
Excellent taste. Followed recipe except I accidently opened one can of beef broth instead of chicken. After trying soup, which was delicious as is, I added ramen noodles (no broth packet). Very good. Next bowl (next meal) I added soy sauce to make it more oriental. Water chestnuts is another option to add crunch. Very good. This is a excellent recipe as is or an excellent recipe to add other ingredients of your choice.

Just the way I like it - delicious and easy. I rather have fried fish, but for a change this was good.

Tuna Broccoli Roll Up Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2008
I have a feeling that this recipe would be great following the recipe, but I used what was on hand. I substituted cooked flaked walleye for the tuna, fresh cooked broccoli for the frozen, wheat tortillas instead of flour, and mild salsa for the tomato. I see this as a very versatile recipe. Thanks PIDGE! It's a keeper.

Fisherman's Quick Fish

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
Loved it!! Couldn't find creamy Italian dressing so I used Kraft Fat Free Peppercorn Ranch. I don't buy potato chips or dip because I am one that could sit down and eat the whole bag. I found some 1 oz. bags of Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper kettle cooked potato chips. I used one bag per filet (3 fillets) but didn't decrease the cheese. Bags crushed to 1/4 cup after eating one chip out of each bag. Using a rolling pin I crushed the chips right in the bag. I also put tin foil in the 9 x 13 pan for easy cleanup. Recipe is delicious as is, but I would like to try sprinkling a little garlic or onion powder on the filets. Thanks for the recipe Karena.

French Spring Soup

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
Wanted to use some fresh asparagus that was given to me by a friend. Asparagus is not on my husband's favorite list. Coming across this recipe in my search, I thought it might work. It did. My husband thought it was very good. Of course I didn't have all of the ingredients. I didn't have leeks or spinach. I added fresh chives from the garden with the cream. I happen to have cream, but next time I think I will try EVAPORATED MILK as another reviewer said. I think the CREAM OF ASPARAGUS SOUP idea also sounds good, but that might be pushing it with my husband. If you like your soup thicker, there is a Reduced Fat Potato Soup found on this site that uses a package of orignal COUNTRY STYLE GRAVY MIX. It thickens potato soup real well that you may even have to add either a little milk or water to desired consistency. I do like creamed soups. I may try adding CHEESE also. There are so many possiblities. I also had to use instant brown rice. Ten minutes is long enough to cook the vegetables in this recipe as long as they are diced small, and it isn't going to hurt the rice if it is cooked longer than ten minutes. I agree that more rice could be used if desired as other reviewers stated. Very good recipe Luanne.

Halibut with Cream Sauce

Reviewed: May 12, 2007
I thought it was very good. I liked the sauce. The only two things I did different was to add fresh chives from the garden, and I baked it in the oven at 400 for 23 minutes because our grill went kaput. While I thought it was good, my husband wasn't crazy about it. That's because he isn't a fan of any kind of baked fish. He likes more crunch. The next time I think I will put the sauce on the bottom, sprinkle with the cheese, dip the fish with an egg milk mixture, lay the fish on top of the sauce/cheese mixture, sprinkle or press bread crumbs mixed with Panko (Japanese style breading) into the fish. Bake. The last five minutes I will add French Fried Onions to the top. Maybe then it will be crunchy enough. I guess that means my husband is going to have to try it at least one more time. Thank you for the recipe Ginny.

Phyllo-Wrapped Halibut Fillets with Lemon Scallion Sauce

Reviewed: May 12, 2007
Excellent!!! Followed the recipe exactly. The only thing I will do next time is use more phyllo sheets and a smaller piece of of halibut (maybe about 3 oz). The recipe was excellent as is, but I can see myself experimenting with different spices and herbs. Thanks for the recipe JAYDA.

Italian Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
The flavor in this sandwich reminded me of the Four Cheese and Tomato Panini served at a local food chain restuarant. I prefer to use a crispy bun. I don't need to use the butter. If the bun isn't crispy enough I crisp it under the broiler first. The best bun I used was a tomato basil bun. It added flavor. I spread mayo on first and sprinkled garlic, oregano and basil. Italian seasoning would also work. On top of that I put roasted red peppers. I would have put a thin slice of tomato on next except I kept forgetting to buy one at the store. On the other half of the bun I use a mixture of white cheese such as provalone, mozzarella, and swiss, depending what I have on hand. I broil this and it turns out very tasty. Sometime I'm going to try sauteing mushrooms, onions, green peppers or red peppers with seasoned salt and adding that to the sandwich. Sounds good to me. Thanks for the recipe.

Broccoli and Cheese Slaw

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
Very good!!! I got this recipe out of the newspaper many years ago. It is one of my favorites. The calories listed on the recipe I have says 123 using fat free dressing. I have used the fat free, but I'm not sure if they make the fat free version or not any more. I have low fat in my refrigerator because the store I have been going to doesn't have fat free on the shelf. I like to add 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese and use a red onion to give it more color. Thanks Marzetti for the great recipe.

Reduced Fat Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2007
***** + more. I followed the recipe exactly the first time. Very good. Thick soup. Want a thinner soup; add milk. If you don't have time and want a very fast potato soup, this is the recipe. Have more time and want a better tasting soup, use fresh potatoes. The second time I used fresh cubed potatoes, sliced baby carrots, one stalk celery and a little parsley. Excellent. This soup would be very good served in a bread bowl. It is a very good tasting basic recipe that you can make your own. The secret ingredient is the country gravy mix. If you don't like onion and red pepper for the original recipe, use hash browns without the onion and pepper for the fast version. Don't like carrots or celery for the fresh potato version, don't add. You could also add ham or cooked crumbled bacon at the end and warm through. I have been looking for a good potato soup without cheese for quite some time. I finally found it. If you want, you could add cheese to this soup also and it would be very good. Like I said, this is a very good basic soup that you can tweak to your own liking. Thank you Stephanie.

Octoberfest Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
Crisp coating without the oil. Breaded all 4 pork chops but only made one for myself. I placed the remaining chops on a pan and put in the freezer. After they were froze I put in individual bags to freeze for a future meal. I could have baked all 4 and then froze them, but microwaves always seem to make coatings soggy.

Leftover Scalloped Potato Soup

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
I love soup and this was a good way to use up leftover scalloped potatoes. Looking the recipe over again before I submitted my review I saw where CANUCKLEHEADMOM suggested using "Really Good Scalloped Potatoes." My suggestion was going to be that the next time I try this soup I was going to add Cheddar Cheese Soup instead of the Cheddar cheese, but after looking up the recipe I see that cheese soup was used in the original recipe of "Really Good Scalloped Potatoes." I think it would make good soup with any scalloped potatoes using a can of Cheddar Cheese Soup, and chicken broth. I would only use garlic powder to taste. As it says, "add, omit, experiment!" Thank you CANUCKLEHEADMOM for the idea of making soup out of leftover scalloped potatoes.

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: May 5, 2007
Perfect!!! This is the taste I have been trying to find for years. I'm throwing out most of the coleslaw recipes that are cluttering my recipe box except for a few that are a little different, such as adding pineapple, apple, cheese, broccoli, bacon, etc. This is the one I will be making most of the time from now on. I buy the 16 oz. bag of coleslaw mix and make the full recipe for the 16 oz. bag. Since there is only two of us, I only make as much as we need for a meal, storing the sauce in a seperate container for future meals.

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
My husband and I love Spiced Chai, but only drink it occasionally because the brand I buy has 140 calories. With this recipe I was able to use Decaf tea, fat free creamer, sugar free French vanilla creamer, and substituted Splenda for the sugar. Very good. We will be drinking more spiced chai and less coffee. Thanks for the recipe.
