Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
I made the recipe as stated and used it for the "Chicken Garlic Pizza" recipe from this site. Personally, I liked it. However, my hubby and kids did not. They said it was too dry. My husband's exact words were "it takes the joy out of pizza." Keep in mind that I've just recently begun incorporating healthier foods into our diet...we're used to eating more processed foods. Maybe I'll look for a some kind of a "hybrid" crust.

Pineapple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
I have a hard time getting my family to eat pork chops, but they loved them prepared this way. I took others' suggestions and cut down the soy sauce to 1 1/2 Tbs. and used crushed pineapple instead of pineapple juice. Next time I think I will cut the pork into pieces ahead of time and make it more like a stir fry.

Oat-rageous Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
These cookies are scrumptious and easy to make! I wish I would have doubled the batch. My chocoholic husband even liked them with the cranberries. However, I put in only half the amount of the chocolate chips, cranberries, and toffee that the recipe called for. I think they would have been way too sweet if I had put in the full amount.

Ham and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
Unfortunately this will not be a repeat recipe for our family. I followed some of the other raters' suggestions (adding more noodles, sauce), but the sauce seemed to be too thick and pasty for our liking.

Chicken Garlic Pizza

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
I've made this several times and my husband and I love it (my 5-year-old likes it, too, IF I omit the tomatoes on a few pieces for her). It says it makes 6 servings, but we can eat the entire pizza ourselves. Here's what I have done differently: 1) I have used ricotta and cottage cheese and both work fine. 2) My husband is not a fan of onions, so I leave those out. 3) I treat the pan w/cooking spray 4) I cook and de-bone a whole chicken, and use shredded chicken instead of a chicken breast. I always have enough chicken left to make another meal. 5) I double the butter sauce. We have found this recipe to be a great alternative to the regular, tomatoe-sauce variety pizza.

Incredibly Easy Chicken and Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
Great recipe. Easy and my kids loved it. I did substitute dry noodles instead of the frozen. I cooked them most of the way through, and then added them to the sauce and cooked for appx. 5 minutes. Delicious!

Baked Apples

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2006
This was easy and tasted good. I did have some trouble serving it to my two young children (maybe I didn't hollow out the apples enough??). Like some of the others said, I would rather just cut up the apples before baking--not as pretty, but easier to eat!

Simple Hamburger Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
Good family recipe! My kids (ages 2 and 5) loved it. They gobbled it up and asked for seconds. I thought the sour cream taste was a bit strong and the sauce turned out a bit thick. I will make this again, but I will decrease the sour cream and increase the milk. This does make a BIG batch--it could easily feed my family of 4 for two meals.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2006
Terrific fish recipe! I didn't have onion powder or celery salt, so I substituted with a bit of season salt. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Turned out beautifully!!

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
This is a total hit with my family! We tend to go through alot of store-bought granola bars, so I'm thrilled to find a substitute that is cheaper and tastes even better! My Kindergartener proudly told everyone at school "My mom knows how to make granola bars at home!" I made a few of the substitutions that were mentioned by other reviewers: I used honey instead of corn syrup and I omitted the raisins and pressed mini choco chips into the top instead. They were a little crumbly--next time I may substitute only half of the corn syrup for honey and see how they turn out. Thanks, TinaMarieS--and be sure to thank your sister-in-law for me!
