Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
I used only 3 bananas just because that was all I had on hand at the time. And it was great! This recipe is dense heavy bread, which is prefect for banana bread. Just be careful not to over stir when adding the dry ingredients so it doesn't get tough. And be careful not to over cook it. I take it out right after the middle stop jiggling when you shake the pan. This recipe is a very mildly sweet flavor. I suppose you could add more sugar or some spices if you were in the mood....but its a nice delicate taste without them.

Five-Spice Chicken Wings

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
The chinese five spice is not something I was very familiar with, but it was tasty. I used chicken breasts and we grilled them. The fish sauce was a little too prominent for us so next time I'll cut it back a touch. The recipe is a nice change of pace with asian flavors.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
I used dried cranberries instead of the raisins and chopped cashews in place of the almonds. I also use light mayo. Great summery salad! Its a favorite in our house.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
Hands down the best pizza sauce recipe I've ever tried! And I've been trying many of them hunting for a good one recently. I think our search will end here! And don't be intimidated...its really not much harder than other recipes! I cooked mine on low for about 15 minutes to help the flavors marry quickly. And I used the anchovy paste which gives it that little something extra. I omitted the cayenne/red pepper to make it kid friendly. It didn't seem to sweet to me and it only needed the smallest pinch of salt. Yum!

Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
Buy a package of 'chicken tenders' when they are on sale to save time cutting the chicken. The tenders are the perfect size/shape to slip onto a skewer to grill. After reading the reviews these where the changes we made and enjoyed the results: reduce the soy sauce to about 1/4 c.; reduce curry to 1 tbs; double the PB. Serve with a nice peanut satay sauce. Delish!

Pasta Fagioli Soup II

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
We thought this was fantastic! Here are the minor changes I made to suit our tastes: 1 can of kidney beans in place of the 2 cans of northern beans; I used fresh basil and parsley from my garden (though dried would be fine); and I used fresh chopped spinach rather than frozen. Very tasty. The bacon gives it a nice smokey taste. Just be sure to salt it only to taste as it could easily be overdone if you use a salty chicken broth or the full amount of bacon. I added only 1/2 tsp and it was plenty for us. Also, if you are not going to consume all of the soup in one meal, I like to boil the pasta on its own and add it to each individual bowl as I serve it. This keeps it from absorbing all your liquid or becoming soggy when you store your left overs.

Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
I used an 11 lb shank ham. Cooked 6 hours in the oven, cut and removed the fat. I cooked the last hour with the glaze in my crockpot. It was delish!!

Butternut Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
It was a good idea but didn't pull through in the end. The texture was off and it was much too sweet. I think maybe my squash was smaller than the "1 butternut squash" called.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
30 minutes. Pizza from scratch. Please don't review this recipe unless you make it as directed! yes! it's really THAT easy! Mix your dry ingredients (if you must make changes add some herbs such as basil or italian seasoning or garlic powder - about a tsp of each). Then add you liquids. I let my kitchenaide knead the dough for me for about 5 minutes so I have time to get all my toppings ready. Top and Bake. SO easy it should be illegal.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
My new FAV for fish! It was awesome - made it just how it was written. Might cut back on the salt next time, but other than that I wouldn't touch the recipe at all.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
My husband was very impressed with this recipe...which, in turn, impressed me! The only change we made was adding garlic. It was delicious, but a little bit goes a long way because it is so rich and flavorful. I wouldn't serve this as an entree, but rather in small bowls for a starter so you don't get burned out on it half way through your meal.

Sausage-Stuffed Eggplant

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2010
I made this recipe as it is written and it was outstanding. If I had ordered it at a restaurant I would have happily paid big bucks for it! We'll definitely be putting this one on our menu again!

General Tao Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
This is our favorite chinese recipe yet!! They way the chicken is coated with cornstarch, egg, etc, was such a great concept. We'll even use this was of preparing the chicken to go with other sauce in the future. It had the same "feeling" of being fried but WAY healthier! Love it. Tasted very authentic. Don't bother to make it without the oyster sauce...it's what gives it that little "extra".

Thai Green Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
I LOVE this recipe. You can use breast or thighs. Be generous with your curry paste, ginger and garlic. I add a chopped yellow onion. Cut back a bit on the fish sauce...you definitely should use it because it gives the curry a very round and authentic complexity...but you don't want to actually TASTE fish sauce in the meal. Don't skip the cilantro....the dish begs for it. I also have added a can of bamboo shoots... Try this dish. You'll be glad you did!

Baked Pork Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
great recipe. We LOVED that these are much more "guilt free" because they are baked! we just don't do fried food in our house. I made them vegetarian, but I'm sure they would be good with ground pork or even ground turkey too. I doubled (and next time would even triple) the cabbage mixture since I was not including the meat. I also used the egg roll wrappers...next time I'll be sure to find SPRING roll wrappers to help with the crisping in the oven. We'll definitely make these treats again!

Grilled Tri-Tip with Oregon Herb Rub

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
This is one of my new favorite recipes from this site! I cut back the salt a bit and didn't regret it. No sauce needed on this steak! The leftovers will be great in salad and wraps :)
