Hot and Sour Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
Very easy, yummy recipe! I used tofu instead of chicken and it was great. I also substituted rice vinegar for the red wine. This will become a favorite for me.

Maria's Paella

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
I made this yesterday with just a couple changes. I omitted the chicken and used fish broth rather than water. I would maybe use a mixture of fish and chicken broth next time for a little more flavor but this was overall a really yummy dish. Such an easy recipe once you have everything assembled. The combination of seafood was absolutely delish!

Thai Ground Chicken Basil

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
Very yummy! I made minor changes to suit what i had on hand. I used ground turkey instead of chicken, I didn't have the thai peppers, so I used Lee Kum Kee Chili pepper sauce. I added some shredded cabbage as I was sauteeing the garlic...it was a great addition! We ate this in lettuce wraps.This would be great in potstickers also. Great base recipe! I would highly recommend!

Apple Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I made this x-mas eve to eat in the morning while opening presents...wow, it didn't disappoint! Very good flavor, moist, and the apples are a great addition. I followed the recipe exactly except that I didn't have a tube pan. I used a 9 inch cheesecake pan it it turned out great, a little hard to spread the batter and I didn't exactly have enought to do a complete 2nd layer but it didn't seem to matter. It all puffed up wonderfully. Oh, I did use brown sugar for the topping, delish!

Spanish Rice Chicken II

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs for this but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Really easy to prepare, great weeknight dinner because of minimal prep. The taste was very yummy! I may try this in the crockpot next time. My family raved at how great this tasted!

Vietnamese Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
these were good, I didn't make the hoisen sauce, maybe that was what this was missing. Avocado would be yummy in this as well. I thought it was a little plain but I don't think that was the fault of the recipe.

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I have made this recipe twice so far. The first time I followed the recipe exactly. I found the onion a bit over-powering and really didn't understand why it called for whole tomatoes, the flavor from the tomato juice was "ok" but not great in my opinion. The second time I made the following changes: Used 1 onion and sauteed it first before adding the other ingrediants, I used diced tomato and I omitted all the tomato juice and just used organic chicken broth. I preferred the second version by a landslide! I have been making this soup to lose weight in conjuction with using weight watchers. I have a bowl whenever I'm feeling really hungry or at the beginning of a meal, so that I cut down on how much I eat.

Mostaccioli with Spinach and Feta

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
Great recipe, didn't want to give it a "5" since I tweaked a couple things. I used 4-5 cloves of garlic to really pump up the flavor. I also added chiken broth when I was sauteeing the tomatos and garlic, I didn't want the "sauce" to be too dry. It was great because the pasta was cooked al dente and absorbed all the yummy sauce when I combined it. I served it with some shredded romano on top. This will be going into my regular rotation.

Fasoliyyeh Bi Z-Zayt (Syrian Green Beans with Olive Oil)

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
very yummy, my veggie-phobic husband ate them and declared them "very good"! I used a little less than a 1/4 cup of oil and used fresh green beans, since I'm not a big fan of frozen veggies. We ate them "warm", as many people suggested that they were better after sitting for a bit. This is a keeper.

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
I love this recipe! I couldn't find my loaf pan (we just moved), so I made these into muffins. They were so good! I cooked them for about 25 minutes and they were perfect. The only other change I made was using a jar of pear/plum baby food as a substitute for half of the oil. Great recipe!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
So yummy! I omitted the salt and sugar, because I felt like it was probably ok without those 2 things. I marinated thighs for about 7 hours, we made skewers with red onion, red bell peppers and the chicken...they were so tender and flavorful. Great go to recipe for the bbq.

Kielbasa with Peppers and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
very good! I made the following changes: I used turkey kielbasa and cut it into larger chunks. I also added a whole yellow onion that I also chopped in large chunks. I cooked the potatoes in the microwave until tender but still slightly firm. I threw all the ingredients into a large cast iron skillet and let it happily sizzle away. I tried to not mess with it too much as to not break the potatoes. When everything had a nice caramalization, I put it all in the oven to finish cooking...which was basically when the potatoes were fork tender. Oh, I also added garlic. It had amazing flavor and I was really happy how it turned out.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
loved these! changes the recipe just a bit by adding a can of roasted tomatoes because I just wanted more than just the tomato soup. They were wonderful the next day also. A definite keeper!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2009
this was really, really good! I followed the recipe exactly except that I used frozen tilapia from Costco. I cooked for 25 minutes at 400 degrees, then I added the topping and broiled for 5 minutes. I will be adding this to our rotation.

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2008
Really great, easy cheesecake. I made this last night for my husbands birthday and it was beautiful. The crust is amazing, worth the extra effort. I only had a 8 inch pan and it worked great. Next time I may use 3 cream cheeses just to get a taller cake. This is a keeper!

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
this was good, but not something I would make again. I actually enjoyed it more spread on toast and eaten the next day like a real BLT.

Angel Hair with Feta and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I have to say I was a little worried that this wouldn't have much flavor but this was SO good! I used sundried tomatoes packed in oil, because thats what I had but I otherwise followed the recipe exactly. This is an excellent no meat dish. The cilantro was a great addition, I was pleasantly surprised. This will be going into my regualr rotation.
