Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
Took some tips from another reviewer and sweat the eggplant first by peeling, slicing and sprinkling with coarse salt and let sit for a half hour. Rinse well and dry. Then dip in egg and then into seasoned crumbs. To give it a little extra crunch I replaced half the bread crumbs with panko and added some extra Italian seasoning and a little garlic powder. Baked for 7 minutes per side at 450 and then followed the rest of the recipe and it was the best Eggplant Parmesan any of us had ever had. All 7 kids loved it and my sister who hates eggplant even loved it! Definite keeper!

Quick, easy, tasty, fairly nutritious and inexpensive. A keeper in a house with 8 kids!!! No changes necessary, we just serve with a side salad.

Banh Mi

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
Wonderful recipe. I gave it 4 out of 5 because I don't use the chicken and omit the garlic salt of course. I make a pork roast rubbed with a paste of fresh garlic, ginger and lime juice and then sliced thin after cooking instead.

Cinnamon Rolls II

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
Great base recipe. I did make some changes, in that I use stevia and vanilla powder in the dough and splenda brown sugar blend for the brown sugar. Otherwise, wonderful recipe. I only made the changes after making them exactly as the recipe states. Either way, turn out wonderfully!

Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
Flavor was great, amount of apples perfect. I used premade crusts from the grocery store. This was the first pie I made that did not get a soggy bottom. This is a keeper and the family loved it :D

Spicy Honey Mustard Pork Roast

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
Loved it! Even my kids thought it was great! Definite keeper. The ONLY thing I changed was I cooked it in my counter top rotisserie rather than baking it. This gave an even crust all the way round.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
I didn't make this recipe exactly as written as I made some changes after reading comments. Made with chicken stock and balsamic vinegar, added in some mushrooms and fresh garlic, and served over angel hair pasta. I also sprinkled some parmesan cheese over top and it was fabulous. I only gave 4 stars as I changed it to suit my family's needs. But it turned out so well that they all said I needed to make it again.

Apple Butter I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
I'm only giving this recipe 2 stars because the ingredient list is written poorly. There's no way you can make a proper batch of apple butter with only 8 apples. Especially when adding that much sugar! I used this as a guide along with many other recipes on here to get a proper recipe to our liking: 9 lbs granny smith apples cored, peeled and sliced, 2 cups sugar, 4 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp cloves, 1/4 tsp allspice, 1/4-1/2 cup water. Everything in crock on high (300 deg. F ) for 4 hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Use stick blender or food processor to blend to smooth consistency. Remove to jars, put on lids and process in water bath for 10 minutes. Check seals, tighten rings and store in cool dark place 8-12 months.

Chocolate Ganache

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
fabulous recipe! I whipped it and used as a filling in a wedding cake I made for my friends. Everyone LOVED it! I'd give it 10 stars if I could!

Spinach, Sausage and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
had to make some subs due to what I had in the pantry vs. what the recipe called for. The flavor was good, added some garlic and onion to the meat sauce. Used fresh spinach and mixed the cheese and spinach in the food processor. Red sauce came out a little soupy because of the tomatoes. There were no leftovers and my youngest begged me to make it for dinner the next night too. Next time I'm going to add some pasta into the mix...

Saucy Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
This was just okay for us. May or may not make it again. It had an odd taste from the soy sauce. Something to work with and may change it up some and try again.

Peppered Bacon and Tomato Linguine

Reviewed: May 27, 2010
I'm only giving this dish 3 stars because the first time I made it it was lacking and I had made it according to the recipe. The second time I made it I used the recipe as a guide and made it my own. Second time around I used 1/2 lb peppered bacon, drained off grease, 1 box bowtie pasta (prepared), 2 cans italian diced tomatoes, 2 cans petite diced tomatoes, 2 Tbsp. dried basil, 1/2 cup fat free half and half, 1 tsp. onion powder, cracked black pepper to taste and a clove of fine chopped garlic. Everyone had seconds the second time around (no one cared for it that much the first time I made it) and there was just enough left for my hubby to take to work for lunch. Much better reception for it when I changed it up.

Roast Leg of Lamb

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
only giving 4 stars because I added thyme and mint, rubbed the outside of roast with a little bit of olive oil before seasoning and stuffed garlic in both the top and bottom of the roast. Turned out absolutely perfect and will be making my leg of lamb this way from now on. Great base recipe to give a beginner a good stepping stone! My one suggestion is to use a leave in digital leave in type thermometer that will measure as it cooks so that you get a perfectly cooked roast every time.

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ginger and Honey

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
I actually didn't follow the recipe perfectly because I messed up. But hey, thats okay, because it turned out great! I sliced my sweet potatoes, used golden instead of ruby (or actual sweet potatoes instead of yams). Eyeballed the ginger and used only 1/4 tsp cardamom and as per other user suggestion 1/4 tsp nutmeg. I also used olive oil instead of walnut as that's what I had. Added about 1 tsp each of lemon juice and white wine. I boiled the potato rounds for about 7 minutes then coated them in the glaze mixture and broiled until browned. Tasted good enough to make again. Served with roasted boneless leg of lamb and a salad of organic baby greens with herbs, gorgonzola, craisins, apple dices and a garlic vinegarette.

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
LOVED LOVED LOVED this! F All of my kids loved it and my youngest kept telling me he loved it so much! I did make one substitutions from the original recipe and that was 2% mexican blend shredded cheese as that's what I had on hand. This is a keeper and a new regular to our meal rotation! The kids all suggested that next time I put some olives on with the cheese, and I tend to agree! Otherwise, FABULOUSLY EASY!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
LOVED LOVED LOVED this! First time having quinoa and what a wonderful introduction! All of my kids loved it and my youngest who's 5 had 4ths he loved it so much! I did make two substitutions from the original recipe and that was chicken broth as that's what I had on hand. I don't think it would honestly change the flavor all that much either way. And I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. This is a keeper and a new regular to our meal rotation!

President Ford's Braised Eye Round Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
good flavor, turned out a little dry which toughened the meat. Will make again, but cook less time. Otherwise would have given 5 stars. Subbed a cabernet for the burgundy and beef broth for consume as that's what I had.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
doubled the recipe for my large family. Even the kids liked it. I did follow some other reviewers suggestions and changed/added a couple ingredients to make it more authentic. Changed the cornstarch to ground cashews. Added fenugreek and also used fat free versions of dairy products instead of full fat. Will be making this one again!
