Banana Chocolate Chip Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2006
Changes that worked for me... 1 cup sugar, 4 medium bananas, 1/3 cup skim milk and butterscotch chips. I also used the 11x7 Pyrex baking dish and 35 minutes was perfect. Frosting would make this too sweet.

Penne with Spicy Vodka Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This was great with just a little tweaking - we like things spicy, so I used the hot Italian turkey sausage (1 package/5 links) as well as the crushed red pepper flakes. I also added half of a red onion, diced, with the garlic and increased the vodka to 1/4 cup. Dried parsley worked fine, but I would consider adding some fresh basil next time. I also used one box of bowtie pasta (1 lb.)I omitted the salt and we never missed it. I had enough to feed at least six hungry people!

Fresh Tomato Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
I cooked my peeled and deveined shrimp in the pan first with a little olive oil and a lot of crushed red pepper (we like it HOT!) After it was cooked I removed it from the pan and continued with the recipe. I also added more like half a 10 oz. bag of spinach and used a 12 oz box of fettucine. My family ranked this one a "keeper!"

Cherry Limeade I

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
Very close to Sonic - just missing a little carbonation. I thought the tartness was just right! If your ice maker crushes ice, use that as it makes it seem more like the real thing!

French Toast Souffle

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
I used six eggs and added about 2/3 cup of evaporated milk I had left over. Also added a little sugar to the egg mixture and sprinkled the bread with cinnamon and some nutmeg. I don't think you can go wrong with this recipe!

Grilled Portabellas with Caramelized Onions and Avocados

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
I used my panini maker to grill the portobellos - easy and quick! I also added some crumbled gorgonzola cheese and sliced tomatoes to the sandwich. Tasty!

Tortellini Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
I used a small can of chopped green chilies, olive oil instead of margarine and one cup of cream mixed with one cup skim milk in place of the half and half. It was delish! I will make this again for sure.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2010
These were really good and you can make little changes to suit your taste. I'm not a kidney bean fan, so I used pinto beans. Black beans or small red Colorado beans would also be good. Next time I'll add a minced jalepeno to the onion since I like things spicy! I had a little trouble rolling these up because I had so much filling, so you might get an extra tortilla or two to take care of the excess. I served these with some mexican rice and a salad and my family was VERY happy!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
I'm not a big rice pudding fan, but this is a good one! I used brown jasmine rice and cooked it about 5 minutes longer - just until the water was absorbed. I also added the salt and butter at the beginning instead of later. No need for a second pan, just add the milk (skim) and sugar to the cooked rice. I also used Craisins instead of raisins. Finally I sprinkled the top with cinnamon sugar. The brown rice makes for a slightly chewier texture, but a MUCH healthier rice pudding.

Strawberry/Rhubarb Crumb Pie

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
This is a good pie! I added the tablespoon of cornstarch for insurance and the filling wasn't too runny. I will make this one again!

Oatmeal and Wheat Flour Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Very nice pancakes and healthier than most. I added some cinnamon to the flour mixture for added taste. My recommendation is to add the blueberries by hand after you have formed the pancakes on the griddle - that way the blueberries are evenly distributed. I also used a lot more than 1/2 cup of blueberries, but my berries were pretty big.

Graham Cracker Crust I

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
Perfect, simple recipe for a graham cracker crust! One package in the food processor, add sugar then drizzle in melted butter through the top. This also works great with chocolate grahams when you need a chocolate crust.

Aunt Mary's Eggplant Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
I would cut up more eggplant next time and cook it a little longer. Needed to add more breadcrumbs even though I used only one egg. I also added some crushed red pepper when I mixed it all up. I sauteed some sliced red bell peppers with onions and added some tomato & basil spaghetti sauce, then the eggplant balls and served them on hoagie rolls for a veggie Italian sandwich. Yum!

Magic Mango Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Really good recipe! I made only one loaf and used 1/2 cup brown sugar instead of 3/4 cup white sugar. Two eggs as well, plus some ginger because I like it. My husband can't eat nuts and my daughter won't eat raisins, so I threw in some Craisins to good effect. My mango pieces stayed mixed throughout, perhaps because they were small. I will make this again, for sure.

Malaysian Mango Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
Excellent recipe! I used two rather large chicken breasts and doubled the sauce to good effect. Added garlic (thanks to previous reviewers!) and used rice vinegar instead of cider. I may also have added additional curry powder (I don't measure very accurately sometimes) because we like it spicy. I'll continue to play with this recipe, but the family was happy with my first try!

Warm Flourless Chocolate Cake with Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
Very easy and very yummy! No problems with overbaking when I followed the recipe and the cake had a great dark chocolate flavor and good texture. I made the caramel sauce, but maybe should have cooked the sugar a little longer. The consistency of the sauce is thinner than I would like, but the flavor is good. Some vanilla ice cream finishes this off nicely. A keeper.

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
My family is trying to eat more vegetarian meals, and incorporate tofu more often. Normally I would make this with eggplant, but this is a good variation. I followed the advice of other reviewers and used extra firm tofu, which I drained, sliced and froze. I also coated it with flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs and they stayed put. I baked the slices in the oven with some olive oil spritzed on and they browned nicely. We like lots of sauce, so I used a 15 oz. can of tomato sauce and doubled the spices. Baking it in my loaf pan was perfect and it cut and served without a mess. Next time I'll add some red pepper flakes to the sauce as we like things a little spicy, but overall this is a great recipe.

Dijon Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
The onion and garlic were much too strong when simply sliced and placed on top of the mustard. I would try sauteing them or leave them off completely, although I'm not sure I'll try this recipe again. Much better ways to cook salmon out there!

Zucchini Bread with Coconut and Chocolate Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2010
This bread is pretty good and easy to make. I used 2 cups whole wheat flour and 1 cup all purpose flour and the texture of the bread wasn't too heavy. I would probably add some cinnamon to the mixture next time for added interest.

Chocolate Wave Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Really, really good! I leave out the nuts because of allergies, but it's still great. I do line the bottom of the loaf pan with waxed paper because I had a problem getting it out of the pan intact the first time I made it. Works great!
