Sea Bass Cuban Style

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Made this recipe with tilapia, and it was delicious! I used canned tomatoes with chilis, as one reviewer suggested, and it added just the right amount of punch.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Excellent! I grilled the meat, but made up the sauce & drizzled it over after grilling. Amazing flavor! Drizzle it over rice or potatoes as well.

Tortellini Salad I

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Very good! I left out some of the things I don't like (olives) or didn't have (mint, feta), used dry seasonings (didn't have fresh parsley), and added more veggies (shredded carrot, broccoli, etc). Served it at a family gathering, and everyone loved it...even the kids who hate all veggies!

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Everyone loved these! I improvised a lot, based on what I had, and they still came out perfectly. Used wheat germ, flaxseed (which I partially crushed myself), some brown sugar, left out rolled oats, only had skim milk. But the guys at work gobbled them up!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2008
Very yummy! I made 2x the marinade, and used half of it to marinate the salmon. While we grilled the salmon, I reduced the remaining marinade to a nice sauce. We spooned the sauce over the fish and some rice before serving. Absolutely fabulous!

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
I made this for my dad's birthday, and it was a HUGE HIT! I'd never made carrot cake before, but decided to try other people's modifications with a few of my own: 1) 1 c brown sugar & 1 c white, 2) added extra tsp of vanilla, 3) added 1 c raisins, 4) added 1/4 tsp nutmeg, 5) added 1 extra tsp cinnamon, 6) used 3/4 c applesauce and 1/2 c oil, 7) subst. 1c chopped walnuts. Fabulous & a new family favorite!

Pecan Pie VII

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
Not bad tasting, but the recipe makes WAY too much filling for the 9" deep dish crust that I bought. It poof-ed up out of the pie, and when it settled, the top was not pretty. The pie also took forever to set! 35 - 40 mins is NOT enough...I left it in over 75 mins, and it was still pretty gooey. Luckily it firmed up after a few hrs. I might try it again with a few changes.

Seven Layer Dip

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
Excellent! Although I made some modifications. In the bean layer, I left out the peppers, and added a 1/4 c. or so of chili sauce, and some extra chili pwdr and cumin. For the guac layer, I used only 2 avacados, which was plenty. I added some chunky salsa to the guac as well. I added a ~1/2 pkg of taco seasoning to the sour cream layer for some color and a kick of flavor. I don't like olives, so I drained a can of black beans and put about 1/2 on top for garnish. Overall, it was a BIG hit and everyone loved the flavors!

Bright Blue Monday Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Delicious!! And so simple. I made it in an 8x8 pan, and baked it for 45 - 50 mins total. It was perfect! Light, fluffy, delish. My boyfriend is not a dessert fan, but he ate 2 pieces!

Mixed Fruit Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
Didn't care for this recipe. I LOVE fruit crisps, but the banana flavors just did not work. I also would not recommend adding the water to the fruit...it made the fruit too soupy after baking. The topping was bland.

Julia's Easy Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
AWESOME!! I just made this tonight, and LUV LUV LUVED it! I didn't have any potatoes in the house, and forgot the cornstarch, but made it anyway. Put it over some barley, and YUM! SO easy too!

Raspberry Peach Crumble

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
I was really looking forward to making this recipe, but was a little disappointed. Too much butter! And maybe my ramekins are smaller than others...but the filling ran out all over the sides & onto the pan. Very soupy...would cut out the juice and some of the sugar in the fruit. And cut down on the butter. Next time, I'll probably make it in a large pan, instead of the ramekins.

Apple-Filled Cranberry Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2008
These are SO yummy! I used apple sauce instead of the cranberry juice, and so the batter was VERY thick, but they turned out delish! Next time, however, I might just mix the apples into the batter, instead of using it as a "filling". I made a few in ramekins, and they made excellent individually-sized dessert cakes...warm up & serve with ice cream - YUM!

Chunky Pecan Bars

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Very rich & yummy. Made them for a party & got great reviews. Chill before cutting so they don't break apart, and then cut them small...they are very rich & chocolate-y! I mentioned that I might cut down on the chocolate the next time, and all the guests cried out "NO!!"...so I guess I won't. :) Helpful note...I didn't have dark corn syrup, but I found the following substitution for it online...1 c white sugar + 1/4 c water + 1/4 c molasses....and then I just used 3/4 c of that mixture.

Spanikopita

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
I added 2 eggs & put in about 1.5 c feta (no mozz or parm), and threw in some extra seasoning -- a little nutmeg, some dried onion, oregano, etc. And I rolled them up into little "cigars". Very yummy!

Pita Chips

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
Excellent chips! I made these last weekend for a Christmas party. Instead of cutting the pitas into wedges, I used metal cookie cutters & cut them into holiday shapes -- trees, holly leaves, snowmen, stars, bells, & gingerbread men. They were a BIG hit! I'd suggest leaving the salt out of the oil mixture, and instead sprinkling on a little kosher salt just before baking -- you'll get a more even and controlled coverage.

Chicken with Lemon Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Yum yum yum! So simple and so delish! I recommend using white whine instead of apple juice. A great recipe for quick weeknight meal. Served over rice.

Swedish Meatballs (Svenska Kottbullar)

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
My husband & I went to Scandinavia for our honeymoon last year, and have been looking for a recipe for the meatballs we loved while over there. This comes very close...we LOVE the sweet/savory spices in these! Adapted a little based on what we had on hand--dry onion flakes, a little bread crumbs instead of bread, used a little seltzer in the meatballs (got that from another recipe here), and used a little cream in the gravy. Ate them with lingonberries that we brought back with us. Awesome!

Frikadeller (Danish Meatballs)

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
My husband & I went to Scandinavia for our honeymoon last year, and have been looking for a recipe for the meatballs we loved while over there. This comes very close, but we used the sweet/savory spice suggestions from another recipe here (ginger, nutmeg, allspce). Made a gravy with the pan drippings & a little cream. Ate them with lingonberries that we brought back with us. Awesome!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
This is so easy & so delish! Used the full-fat ingredients only because we happened to have them on hand. Next time I'd use low-fat swiss & make the gravy with milk instead of cream...but only so I could feel less guilty about having dessert afterwards! :)
