Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
This was my first time trying quinoa, as well. I did not rinse it or soak it and it turned out fine. I did not have veg.broth, so used chicken instead. I also used mixed frozen vegies. I tried kidney beans and pinto beans, in place of the black beans, and agree with other reviewers that it is a little bean-y with 2 cans, and will try just one next time. I liked the suggestion of the tomatoes.

Quick Turkey and Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Good flavor! I cooked the rice in chicken stock. I used left-over BBQ chicken, instead of turkey, and added garlic, black pepper, and a shake of dried chiles. We're not big celery fans, but didn't mind it in this recipe.

Quick and Easy Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
Thank you everyone for your reviews on this recipe! If I had followed the recipe exactly, it definitely would have been too spicy for us. I doubled the sauce and only used 1/2 tsp. of pepper. I also substituted teriyaki for some of the soy. Will make again, but probably add some crushed garlic. Thanks for a tasty recipe:)

Sweet Potato Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
I am only giving this three stars, because it didn't turn out to have the texture that I was expecting, after reading the title of it. Also, I found I needed a much larger than 2 quart dish. I ended up putting it into 2 casserole dishes and before I filled the second one, I pureed it in the blender, but still did not come up with a 'pudding' consistency. People were, however, impressed with the overall taste.

Delicious Pineapple Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
When will I learn to read the reviews before I make the recipe? As others stated, these turned out dry, stuck to the muffin papers and were over cooked, even at 25 minutes. I thought there was too much topping, and didn't use it all. If I try these again, I will definitely mix the pineapple into the batter, undrained, and use some vanilla. Has any one tried cooking these at a lower temperature? Maybe 350 F?

Italian Style Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2009
I gave this recipe 5 stars, but that was after I read the reviews and followed the suggestions. It turned out moist and flavorful and was not too greasy. I didn't have ketchup, so used chili sauce, left out Italian seasoning, added parsley, a good pinch of pepper, parmesan, dried onions, 3 dashes of Worcestershire, only used half of the can of tomatoes, and less cheese than called for. It only took 55 minutes to reach 170 F. I think this was better than my BF's meatloaf, but he won't admit it!

Italian Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I couldn't decide whether to give this recipe 4 or 5 stars, but it was very good! I added 1 Tablespoon of oil, and substituted a half teaspoon of the salt for garlic salt. We only had cheddar and mozza, so used both of those for the cheese. My loaf did not really 'cave' or 'collapse', as others said, but the top was not perfect. The taste, however, was good, and the rest of the loaf sliced well. It was still quite 'peppery', even though I reduced the pepper by half.

Beef and Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
I cooked the noodles al dente, mixed in the parmesan, omitted the sherry, and added mixed frozen vegetables. My BF thought I'd made Hamburger Helper, which I never buy, and he loves! If you're looking for a gourmet recipe, this isn't it, but if you're looking for something quick and tasty, this is it.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
I found the suggested cooking time much too long. Next time, will follow others suggestions! I also sprinkled black pepper and garlic powder on chops before adding sauce. My BF said these were perfect, but much too dry and chewy for my son and I, after only 30 minutes total.

Chewy Date Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
I was wondering if I should've added another egg, or maybe the amount of milk was off. I also used half the amount of sugar, and found it sweet enough.

Chicken 'n' Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
I added cr. of chicken soup, as others suggested, and also substituted low sodium vegetable broth for some of the milk. I doubled the biscuit mix and needed a 9x13 pan. I added garlic to the onion and think this would also be good with celery. Also added chopped green onions to the meat mixture, and increased the pepper to half a tsp. Good recipe! Definitely comfort food...

Bacon-Roasted Chicken with Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
Two "yums" up! This recipe is awesome! Used regular bacon, and there was no problem with the potatoes being dry. Also covered with foil, to stop splattering in oven. Thought the seasoning mixture would be too spicy, but it was just right. Highly recommend lining your 9x13 with parchment paper before adding chicken, etc, to make clean-up easier. Many thanks for sharing this recipe!

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
This is a very good recipe, and the muffins came out with a great texture. I used half a cup of brown sugar (unpacked), for the white sugar, and 1% milk with lime juice for the buttermilk. Next time, I will follow other reviewers suggestions and add some spice, and also cut down or omit the baking soda. I only got 10 muffins out of this, instead of 12, and they took more than 15 mins. to be fully cooked inside. I had no problem using frozen berries, when mixed in with the dry ingredients. Thanks for a tasty, healthy recipe, will definitely make again and again.

Banana Muffins I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I am surprised by the number of people who loved this recipe, and have to agree with those who said they found it to have too much baking powder. I did not like the 'spongy' texture. It only made 9 muffins, and they did not have the high rounded tops that my usual muffins have. Sorry, but I will not be making this one again.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
This was really good! I made this with beef broth, instead of water, because I had a carton already open in the fridge. I also used a bit of cayenne, instead of the hot sauce, and added sliced onion and chopped red pepper. I cut the chicken breasts into small cubes, before cooking, and served it over basmati rice. Next time I would like to try skipping the flour part, and just cook the cut up chicken, and then add to the sauce. Thanks for sharing!

Malaysian Barbecue Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
We liked this recipe, but found the flavour a bit strong, which was I think due to the sesame oil, even though I put half sesame and half vegetable oil. Would like to try making again, but without any sesame. Just not big sesame fans, sorry!

Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
I marinated the chicken breasts in the sauce, omitting the rosemary, marjoram and hot sauce, but it was still good. Boneless skinless breasts only took 20-30 mins. @ 375 F.

Campbell's Kitchen Tomato-Basil Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
This recipe is fast and simple to prepare, but very tasty. I added sauteed onion, celery and sweet pepper, and also some ground black pepper. Next time, I think I will try increasing the garlic powder to 1/2 tsp. We served this over brown rice and it was very good. A definite keeper!

Baked Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
I found these wings to be a little too greasy. I would recommend either removing the skin, first, or maybe just shaking them in a bag with dry spices, and not adding the oil. I think they could be improved with the addition of onion powder and some cayenne, but otherwise they were quite good.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
Let me start by saying that I am not a big fan of salmon, but this was tolerable...almost good! After following other reviewer's suggestions, I used 2 Tbsp EVOO, 3/4 tsp. basil, 1/2 tsp. salt, scant 1/2 tsp. pepper, 3 Tbsp. lemon juice, 1 tsp. parsley, 2 cloves garlic, and about 1/4 tsp. of dill. The only thing I would change for next time is to decrease the lemon juice to 2 Tbsp, as I found it a bit too 'lemony'. Removing the skin before cooking, as someone suggested, really did seem to reduce the 'fishy' taste! Thanks for that tip!
