Simple Tuna Melts

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
I also had to add some mayo - it was way too dry. Then it tasted good - but with the recipe as is, I would not recommend it.

Sausage French Bread Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
This isn't really a recipe in my opinion, more of a dinner idea - It got 4 stars for it being an easy & quick dinner. Too much greasy sausage in my opinion, will scale it back or use just turkey pepperoni and some veggies next time. Also, follow another reviewer's advice about toasting the bread (french bread, don't use a baguette), and I used Green Mill pizza sauce (don't know if you can get it everywhere, but very good tasting). This dinner is good for a busy night, and a better choice than frozen pizza!

Phyllo-Wrapped Halibut Fillets with Lemon Scallion Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
My family can't wait to eat this again - what a delicious way to eat halibut! The only changes I made were to use half & half instead of whipping cream and less lemon juice. I used the rest of my phyllo dough package to make dessert: spray a muffin pan with Pam & take one phyllo dough folded into 4ths molding it into the pan - spray again and repeat, alternating the direction of the dough, using 4 sheets per cup. Then sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar & bake. Makes cute dessert cups for fruit with whipped cream, or whatever! A nice dessert with this dish. I saw the recipe somewhere on here, but can't find it again!

Unbelievable Spinach Calzones

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
I don't think this recipe deserves 5 stars as written, but modified it was great! Here's what I did based on other's imput and my own tastes: First of all, I used frozen pizza dough (I just don't like the fakey taste or texture from the Pillsbury refrig. kind). Then for the cheese mixture I cut back and didn't use all of the container of ricotta (others have complained about too much), I added 3 sauteed cloves of chopped garlic that had been sauteed in a bit of olive oil, some chopped up turkey pepperoni (surprisingly good) and 2 Tablespoons of Kraft mayo. I know you're thinking that the mayo sounds gross, but I saw it from another reviewer and it brought to mind a fabulous pizza recipe from the Pampered Chef that contains a little mayo. I cut a small vent/slit on the tops & brushed with olive oil and baked on a pizza stone. They looked beautiful and tasted delicious dipped in pasta sauce (Bertolli's Tomato Basil, my fave). Give this a try - It is great to gather everyone's wisdom & with modifications, this makes a great calzone.

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
Yummy! I was desperate for cookies & wanted some NOW - so this was the perfect quick recipe. I only had creamy Jif & old-fashioned oats (a little chewy, but good) & cut sugar down to 1 and 3/4 (next time I will try 1 and 1/2) and boiled for 2 minutes like others have suggested. Stuck them in the fridge - the kids helped too!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
I had a hard time deciding what to rate this cookie. They are very good & I love all things pumkin, but the texture could improve. The recipe written for the glaze needs to be altered also. Cut the milk to 2T. and increase the butter to 4T. otherwise it tasted wrong - also add cinnamon to the frosting. I guess I'm comparing these to my all time favorite pumpkin cookie from D'Amico & Sons in Minnesota - their cookies are the perfect "cakey" texture. I think I will try these again with oil instead of butter - that may make the difference!

Hot Fudge Ice Cream Bar Dessert

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
I was a bit skeptical with this one, but after seeing the positive reviews - I decided to give it a try. I make it just as written with a can of Hershey's chocolate syrup & Jiffy creamy PB & it was good. I have had better ice cream desserts. Our friends over for dinner wondered how I sliced cake so thin & I had to give up the secret ingredient. They enjoyed it, and I made it a second time, using real whipping cream, but it was not much better.

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
I could eat the whole pan of this! Served with a spicy mexican soup, was the perfect side dish. I cut the butter to 1/2 cup, reduced the sugar to almost 3/4 cup, and the whole can of green chiles. This is my favorite corn bread of all time!

Apple Raisin French Toast Strata

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
This recipe is delicious as written. I accidently baked it at 350 for 45 minutes and it turned out perfectly. It was neither too soggy or too eggy. I prefer the pieces of cream cheese - it makes for a yummy bite! I used 2 medium sized granny smith apples & tossed in a few teaspoons of sugar & a few dashes of cinnamon. Vanilla would have been nice too. I also used Pepperidge Farms cinnamon raisin bread - I love the bread pudding like texture of this dish & drizzled it with real maple syrup! Maybe I will try the fat-free half & half - I don't know if it is worth the risk!

Cheesy Ham and Asparagus Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2007
I'm sorry, this was just okay for me. I made it just as written (I didn't have a red pepper on hand) - It tasted fine, but I will try another recipe next time. Maybe the terragon threw it off for me or it was just too boring. I even used fresh asparagus. We all ate it but not worth making again.

Egg and Cheese Puffs

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
These were fabulous (with a few modifications)! I did not mix these up the night before - I don't know what the advantage would be. This is a quick breakfast dish already. First, 1/4 cup of butter is all that is needed. Secondly, 2 cups of shredded cheddar/monterey jack cheese is a better amount. I can't imagine this with more cheese than that. I used diced ham and sprinkled some freeze dried chives on the tops before baking for extra flavor & color. A note on pans - for one tray, I used my Pampered Chef stoneware muffin pan (still sprayed with Pam) and they puffed up beautifully & came out perfect. My other pan, an old non-stick sprayed with Pam - didn't come out as puffy, or as easily. I will buy a 2nd stoneware pan now! Thanks for the yummy breakfast!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2007
I've made this twice now & our family really enjoys it! I substitute chicken broth for the beer, but otherwise followed the recipe - Thanks! Yummy!

Denise's Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2007
Wow, this was a great recipe. I doubled it & served over jasmine rice. Served it with fresh orange wedges & the fam thought it was a wonderful compliment to the main dish. Changes made: used 4 tablespoons of peanut butter plus 2 tablespoons cornstarch (remember that I doubled the recipe) - the peanut butter didn't thicken it up enough for me. Also, I used 1 c. chopped peanuts, one larger pepper & kept the onions & cilantro at one bunch each (maybe a little less). A also did not double the cayenne pepper - just used a rounded 1/4 teaspoon. Perfect amount of spice for the adults & kids!

Cheddar Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
I wouldn't say these are the best, but they were very good. The kids really liked them, nothing objectionable. I just didn't think they had much pizazz. They needed a spicier kick. Maybe more seasoning in the meat. I will try these again, maybe adding 1 and a half taco seasoning packets & medium salsa instead of mild. Nice & easy though - I made them all & had leftovers the next night! Serve atop lettuce shreds with a dollop of sour cream!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
Very good! I used half the pepper, as suggested & added a little dried rosemary for more flavor. I also sauteed the onion & celery first in part of the butter & added 1/2 cup diced carrots. The family gave it a thumbs up - I will make it again.

Feta Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Breasts

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2007
Great idea! I however, was extremely lazy & in a hurry: just put individually frozen chicken breasts in a baking dish(still frozen), threw all the ingredients on top without measuring(used hormel's bacon bits), and baked at 375 degrees. It was delicious served atop a bed of fresh spinach. The kids gobbled it up. Great combination of flavors!

Scalloped Corn I

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
Yum! Cut the butter in half & used half the sugar with a Jiffy cornbread mix (which is already sweet). Just like Grandma's!

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
Great flavor combination - my non-stuffing loving family ate it all. There were no Thanksgiving leftovers! I used sage flavored pork sausage - and cut back on the amount of sage seasoning. I baked it in a 9x13 pan and doubled the amount of chicken broth. I would have liked it to hold together a bit, and will experiment next time.

Florentine Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
Good, not great. Maybe because I didn't use marinated artichokes. I don't know, maybe I'm too in love with my other mayo-based artichoke dip. It was good & people liked it - it didn't fly off the party table as much as my other dishes...

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2006
I loved this bruchetta recipe! I had my oven on 375 for another recipe & toasted my bread first, until crisp (not browned)with no added oil. Then I baked them again at that temp. with the topping on until the cheese melted. This made the bruchetta stay crunchy all evening. I would also recommend buying 2 baguttes. I ended up having enough topping for 1 1/2 baguette slices. Oh, and I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes for the fresh. It really helps the tomatoes stay on the bruchetta & makes this recipe even quicker to make!
