Ramen Slaw

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
Liked the recipe. For more of an oriental flavor, I added 2 teaspoons of sesame oil to the vinegar/oil dressing. I also added the sunflower seeds about 30 min before serving. Will definitely make again.

Veggie Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
Delicious! I used the Dill Blend from Wildtree with a tsp of their Onion Chive blend. Perfect. I took the advice from another reviewer on cutting them before the spread was put on. GREAT Advice! Also fun for the kids to dress up their own piece. Got them to eat their veggies without the arguing.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Great basic recipe to start with. Baked 1hr covered at 375 F. Came out wonderful. Added more spices to meat: rosemary, oregano, paprika, parsley, garlic powder and garlic salt (in lieu of salt) Added more spices to tomato sauce: oregano, salt, and pepper. Used other reviewers idea of blanching entire head of cabbage (after you core it) in boiling water. Worked great! Will definitely make again.

Feta Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
these burgers were good but serve them with the following ingredients might make them better: Instead of bun; use pita pockets. Add red leaf lettuce, a greek cucumber sauce as a garnish (same as used in gyros), and sauteed onions makes it a five star restaurant burger.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
I wouldn't say these are quick and easy to make as the cook time is 1 1/2 hrs and the prep time isn't that quick either. Also, the flavor was a bit bland. I even tried the golden mushroom soup tip, cayenne pepper tip, and sautee'd mushrooms tip. Still bland.

Apple Pinwheels

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Recipe tastes good. A couple hints to prevent the mess others were complaining about. 1) Place dough on wax paper that's been sprinkled with flour and use wax paper to help roll it up. 2) You can use 3 apples, but you really only need a little more than two cups of finely chopped apples. Strain before using (excess liquid = difficult to work with). Just add enough apple mix until the dough is evenly covered but not over done. Also, you don't need to add all of the sauce as well. Personally next time I make this treat, I am using less sugar. Probably 1/4 white and 1/4 brown sugar in the sauce mixture. They are really sweet.

Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
YUMMY! If you're not a vegetarian, you won't miss the meat. Our family is not vegetarian, but thought it would be good to incorporate one meatless dish a week. I added: 1 tbsp of yellow mustard to the sour cream mixture and substituted dried parsley flakes instead of fresh. I also added 1/4 cup of white wine at the end. I should have decreased the sour cream by at least 1/2 cup, next time I will. There was a lot of sauce left over. I did the egg noodles but also added 3-cheese filled tortellini for more substance. You can find that in the refrigerated section.

Baked Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
Delicious! I marinated (after the suggestions of others) for about an hour or so. I added a sprinkle of parmesean on top of the cheese. For a side dish I heated up a bag of mixed veggies, tossed it with some olive oil and some cooked penne pasta, garlic powder, and more parmesean cheese. BOTH were outstanding and extremely EASY to do.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
Great recipe - but way too much sugar. I cut the sugar in half. 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/4 cup of white sugar. The modification in sugar was perfect. It's the perfect sweetness and not over powering at all. You can really taste the apples. I will definetely make again and will be bringing this recipe to my cookie exchange in November.

Carne Guisada III

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
Great Recipe! I dredged the meat before cooking, in flour. That made the sauce a little thicker towards the end so it wasn't so soupy. I didn't have some of the seasonings so I substituted and it still came out great. For the sofrito sauce I added 3 TB chopped onion, 1/3 tsp ground corriander, dash oregano and pepper, 2 cloves minced garlic, 2 TB chopped green peppers, 3 TB chopped tomato. I didn't have any Adobo seasoning, so I just left it out. I also, by accident, added about 3/4 cup of frozen peas. (I dumped them in thinking I grabbed the frozen chopped onions). It tasted great and still added some extra veggies to the pot. I also added 1 cup of chopped carrots about 1 hr before it was done. The carrots were still firm in the middle and not mushy at all. I will definetly use this recipe again. I highly recommend this recipe.

Pesto Twists

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
Very tasty and easy. You can modify this any way you want to suit your taste buds. You can do cinnamon and sugar instead of pesto for something sweet. You can add a thin layer of spaghetti sauce, chopped pepperoni, and basil for a more pizza flavor. Sharp Chedder Cheese and bacon bits would be good too. Explore and have fun!

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
Very delicious. I trimmed it down for two people and added a chipolte seasoning to the cream cheese. It gave it a nice smoky spice that was awesome. Thanks!

Zucchini Casserole I

Very yummy recipe. I added leftover rotisserie chicken and shredded sharp cheddar cheese. For spices I added a little bit of Thyme (goes great with chicken). Leftovers the next day were great too!! I added this to my recipe box.

Chicken Spaghetti Casserole I

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2008
Great dinner. Like others, I added my own spin on it - mainly with spices and I added about 1 cup of spaghetti sauce to give it a more italian flavor. I also used garlic powder, seasoned salt, and 2 TB of pesto sauce. I had some Tomato Basil egg noodles that were perfect for the dish. Made it more of a casserole than spaghetti. I will make this again.

Frosted Zucchini Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2008
These were fantastic! I did not wait the 2 hours to refrigerate because I didn't have time and they still turned out perfect. So I wouldn't waste the time. Perfect amount of spice and zucchini. I also added some cinnamon to the frosting which was even tastier. I'll keep this recipe.

Zucchini Bread VI

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
Overall good. I added lemon zest (zest from one whole lemon) and that seemed to bring out the lemon flavor. I also used lemon juice instead of the lemon extract - because I had the "naked" lemon after I zested it. Also added nutmeg. It was very good - but no fireworks. I will make again and keep experimenting. Thanks!

Zucchini Boats on the Grill

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2008
Very tasty! I made these in a last minute decision and they worked awesome over a bed of rice. I had some leftover hamburger meat that I added instead of bacon. I even omitted the pepper and chili because I didn't have them and it still tasted great.
