Panna Cotta

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
Perfect recipe. I did use 2 cups of heavy cream with 1/2 cup of half and half because this is what I had in the fridge. I also made mine in muffin tins which I greased with olive oil (did not affect the dessert even a little bit) and then I topped them with hot fudge. This recipe made 8 1/2 panna cottas for me in the muffin tins.

Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
Our family really enjoyed this chicken. This meal was extremely flavorful, and juicy, perhaps adjusting the spices to our liking did it. I would recommend this to anyone who would like to try something a bit different for dinner. I did make the following changes: I allowed the minced garlic to sit in the oil for about 10 mins. and added Italian seasoning and garlic powder to the bread crumbs. I also used Italian bread crumbs and pounded out the chicken into thin cutlets, turned it under the broiler for five minutes and topped with shredded mozzarella while under the broiler.

Chicken Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
I was pleasently suprised by this casserole since I do not like chicken noodle soup and I did not think it was a lot of work to make...I made this for a Sunday lunch when my mother-in-law came to visit and she loved it also, even my casserole hating partner ate it and went back for seconds. The only changes I made was instead of savory I used a bit of thyme and sage, and instead of egg noodles I used penne pasta, I added some red onion, and topped it with buttered cracker crumbs. This was the first time an entire casserole disappeared and I would/will make it again.

Green Banana Fries

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
Thanks so much for sharing! I made these for my family because they LOVE french fries and I am trying to get them to eat better. My partner has not had fries in over a month and so she felt there was no difference in taste other than a mild sweetness. And I do mean mild. Best advice, make sure your oil is heated well and also that you place fries in the oil one at a time to avoid sticking. We salted and peppered and they were great and low fat/low cal.

Aztec Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
This is a good BASE recipe which is why I gave it five stars...everyone loved this but I made serious changes. I used 18 corn tortillas. I cooked and then cubed the chicken ahead of time. In a 5 qt pan I mixed a large can of enchilada sauce, a small can of green chiles, 1 can of corn, 1 can of black beans, two cups of white rice, and one package of taco seasoning. I added 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese to this after allowing it to cook about 15 mins. I sprayed the bottom of the pan with nonstick spray and added 6 tortillas spread out, topped with chicken mixture, topped with shredded cheddar and pepper jack cheese, layered 6 more tortillas, topped with chicken mixture and cheeses, another layer of tortillas and mix and cheese and left open faced. I sprinkled with crushed white corn tortilla chips. I cooked in the oven for about 10 to 15 mins on 350. It was NOT messy and it was SO delicious! WILL MAKE AGAIN...hope you try to changes it will make a clean, easy, flavorful, quick casserole.

Southwestern Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
I rated this a 4 star because we were not falling out of our chairs in love with it, but it was quite good, filling, easy, and will make it into the dinner arsenal. I felt the meal was bland even after adding the seasonings so I added a package of Taco seasoning and a dash of salt, this really helped. I also added 1/4 cup water to the pot as it seemed dry to me, I added a can of corn. After the macaroni was done, I mixed a half bag of shredded mexican cheese in the pot then added the macaroni, mixed it all up and topped with M.Jack cheese. This meal was NOT too much heat for the kids like I feared, perhaps because I cooked the jalapeno with the meat, garlic, and onions instead of sprinkling them on top, The children (picky eaters) even asked for seconds. I served this with sour cream and some white corn chips.

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
I made this for a group of my Girl Scouts who came for supper...I used Italian pork sausage instead of burger, added a bit of crushed red pepper, olives and mushrooms(canned)more pepperoni, Italian seasoning to change it up a bit. The recipe did not taste like pizza but was very good and the kids enjoyed it for the most part. Oh and I also used rotini noodles instead of egg noodles.

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
I used ranch dressing to moisten, finely grated swiss cheese, crescent rolls cut into rounds, and green onions instead of regular onions. DELICIOUS! Perfectly delicious!

Creamy Tortellini

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
It was not the worst thing I ever ate, but something just is not right with this, and it never really creamed up. One thing I would recommend it that you do not put the tortellini in the sauce until the sauce is all cooked up.

Baby Ruth Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
Not a good cookie, and as someone who makes a lot of cookies I could tell as I was making them they were going to be a disaster. The candy melts faster than the cookie bakes and then sticks to the pan (which is hard to do because it is nonstick) and the cookie kind of flattened and melted before it even had time to bake. I threw the batter away after the first batch...sorry.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
Good for what it was, too thick and sweet for me but everyone else loved it and it did just what it was supposed to. I made it in the microwave, however, 45 seconds, stir, 45 more seconds, stir and drizzle.

Grilled Beef Tenderloin with Herb-Garlic-Pepper Coating

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
This was ok, we made it with steaks instead of a roast...I am not sure if the cut really makes the difference. My daughter liked it though and she is a picky eater.

Regular Crepes

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2007
I am so pleased that crepes are easier to make than I thought they were! This is a great recipe and I added a small dash of Almond Extract for something different. I am glad to have this as a starting point for experiementing :) Thanks!

Crab Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
This was a great recipe and I do not even like crab dip. I made this for a party but never send out anything I do not taste...so...everyone raved about it and asked for a recipe. One change I made was to grate some radish into the dip and also I served this on belgian endive boats which was a huge hit and gave it a bit more oniony flavor which people enjoyed.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
Though I was unable to taste this after I made it I can say it smelled wonderful...I am giving this a four star however because during the party where it was served I noted that though people claimed to like it only one or two people ate more than one piece.

Biscotti Toscani

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
I have never cared for Biscotti but after my girlfriend saw it made on TV and said she had never even heard of it I decided to make her some. This recipe was fantastic, not only was it easy to do, it tasted great! The only changes I made was to add a dash of cinnamon, a lot more almond extract and sliced almonds and no chocolate. I made these cookies for my 9 year old daughters Girl Scout troop and drizzled with chocolate and they loved them too. Who knew kids would like what I consider such a grownup cookie :) Strongly recommend as a jumping base for any biscotti, will make again.

Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
This is the first time I made pecan pie and I was always told it was difficult and tempermental to do...if that is true then this recipe is for everyone who is scared to try pecan pie :) Easy and delicious, family who claimed to hate pecan pie or nutty pies loved this one. Thanks for sharing.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
I think this is a wonderful cookie, easy to make, ingredients all bakers should have in their pantry at a moments notice, quick. I found it to be a light and buttery cookie...also I hate overly sweet and this was not overly sweet at all.
