Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
use 80/20 ground beef so there's enough fat in the burger. It's what makes them good!

Chicken Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
I used fresh chopped carrots and potatoes in place of the frozen veggies. Some frozen peas would be good too though. Then i used dried parsley because it's what I had on hand too. More crust would be nice - so maybe using a bottom one too. I skipped the egg on top too.

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
awesome! I love sweet treats that you can cut the oil/butter out of and not miss it. I replace 1/3 of the flour with whole wheat flour too for extra health benefits. Then I used one whole egg rather than the two whites. You can use closer to 1/3 c. applesauce, be generous with the bananas and conservative with the sugar. 3/4 c sugar makes it very sweet. 1/2 c. would still be fine. 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp vanilla would be good additions too.

Quick and Easy Pancit

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
Overall, I felt like this was uninspiring. Was it true to it's name? yes, it was quick and easy. And it was good. But just...missing that something extra.

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
awesome. The best part is you make it the night before. I use french bread in about a 1/2 inch dice. Add an extra egg and 1/2 cup more milk too. I substituted a cup of diced apples and a couple good dashes of cinnamon since blueberries aren't on sale right now. Then I just served with regular maple syrup. However, I tracked this recipe down after a friend made it at a brunch - as written with the blueberries and blueberry syrup and it's SO good. It's really a good foundation to be creative with. I may even venture to try banana and walnuts in the future... :) UPDATE: i just made it with blueberries this morning and it was delicious. However, I'd recommend only using half the amount of cream cheese called for (at the most!). And I'd recommend the blueberry syrup too!

Pear and Gorgonzola Cheese Pizza

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
This was really great. I used mozzarella rather than provolone which probably wasn't as amazing but worked and left out the walnuts. My husband who was very skeptical said he was surprised at how much he liked it!

Creamy Polenta with Roasted Corn and Fresh Sage

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
I'm sure the fresh roasted corn would have been awesome - but I only had frozen and it was still a hit

Pear Blueberry Crisps

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
I jazzed this up. Add a pinch of table salt to the topping and a sprinkle of lemon juice over the fruit. Then I put a couple of springs of fresh rosemary on the bottom to give it a fabulous earthy essence from the herb.

Flaky Dill Biscuits

Reviewed: May 21, 2011
not terrible but there are better options. They were dry and not as flavorful as we'd like. Wouldn't make it again.

Green Goddess Chive Dressing

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
I used more tarragon than called for and just about doubled the vinegar (I used apple cider vinegar because I don't have tarragon vinegar on hand) and sugar. I doubled the garlic and thought I could have quadrupled it to suit my tastes. We're using it as a salad dressing to go along side tilapia.

Tarragon Chicken Salad II

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
I boiled the chicken rather than baked it. I didn't have celery and still wanted that crunch so I added a diced apple. Then I substituted green onion for the red and dried cranberries for the raisins. Just add mayo as your stir until it's moist enough for your tastes. It didn't take 1 1/2 cups for me.

Lazygirl's Ground Turkey Stroganoff

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I added a couple cloves minced garlic and used fresh chopped onion. We preferred it served over rice too. Fast, easy and kid friendly. I might stir in some frozen peas next time too.

Sun-dried Tomato Butter

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
yum! Be sure to chop the sun dried tomatoes very finely - more like a mince. I used margerine and added an equal amount of fresh basil. It could use more garlic for my tastes too though. We used it on steaks - just spread it on and let it melt into hot steaks. Very gourmet tasting, but oh so easy. It'd be delicious as a garlic bread alternative too! or even topping a baked potato!

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
My husband declared this to be the best chicken wing he's ever eaten. He raved about them the entire meal. I made them just as written. They come out gooey, rich, dynamic....just fabulous. Try it!

Tropical Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: May 7, 2011
wow. Thanks for an AWESOME recipe. We LOVE sweet potatoes and have them often. I'm always looking for interesting ways to serve them and this one is a keeper for certain! Don't change the seasoning at all. It's fabulous as written. As for the cooking method...I opted to roast them like I do with other recipes. I peel and cut the raw potatoes into 1 inch-ish cubes rather than larger wedges then roast them at 400 for about 30 minutes, stirring every 15 or so minutes. This way I dont mess with the boiling part at all. Don't skip the zest or the cilantro. Its superb! I served it with a grilled steak with chimichurri sauce and polenta. :)

Curry Pineapple Fried Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
Not enough pizazz to get 5 stars. It wasn't bland, but was closer to it than I wanted. I need more punch... More curry? more spiciness? it's a good start.... since this is a thai dish maybe I'll try a curry paste rather than powder. As i understand it, paste is typically more thai and powder is more indian.

Greek Tzatziki

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
still not as good as the tzatziki I bought at a local deli...but it's getting there. it had a little bite to it - too sour rather than creamy i thought. Maybe sour cream rather than tangy yogurt? less lemon? i'll keep experimenting.
