Homemade Chicken Cacciatore, Sicilian-Style

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Great! I changed it a bit though...I made it all in the slow cooker, which made everything SO easy. I used skinless thighs. I didnt sautee anything...just put the chicken on top of sliced onion and bell peppers in the crock pot, mixed the sauce in a separate bowl and added on top of the chicken. I added a can of tomato paste and left out the flour. Next time I'll try a little red pepper to give it a kick! Served over mashed potatoes, which was a nice change :)

Red River Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
Good recipe. My husband loved it. I used thinly sliced round steak (because its cheaper) and it was still tender enough. I used olive oil and light sour cream to cut the calories. Because I didn't use butter, I also skipped the flour (which causes the sauce to thicken) and used cornstarch instead. I would cut back the onion and use lots of fresh sliced mushroom next time. Great flavor!

Cashew Chicken with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
I used sesame oil and used red pepper flakes in place of the hot sauce. I added broccoli and couple tbs. of peanut butter. Good recipe though I felt like it needed some thing to make it a bit sweeter and tangier to fit my tastes. Will make it again and tweak it a little.

Banana Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
Like other users, I replace the butter with unsweetened applesauce. I cut back on the sugar a bit but will use the stated amount next time. They weren't quite sweet enough for muffins to me. I used 2 medium bananas and two small ones. Throw your overripened bananas in the freezer then defrost on the counter for 30-40 min. when you're ready to bake with them. I might experiment with adding some spices next time. Maybe some cinnamon? Fantastic recipe and so good for you!

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
Other reviews said they had trouble with the fish drying out, but I didn't have this problem. Just make sure you don't over cook it the fish and be sure to cover with lemon slices (these lock in the moisture). OR just fry up in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat with some evoo. The Dill sauce was excellent. Our house smelled awesome all night. We'll have this one on the menu again at our house!

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
fantastic - I used fresh fruit: 3 c. wild blackberries and 1 c. raspberries. I used light butter and a dash of cinnamon in the berries. I used the amount of sugar that the recipe called for and it wasn't too much for the tart berries. serve while its still warm with vanilla ice cream!

White Sangria

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Big hit. I served it in a sun tea jug and added fruit to each glass. I used pinot grigio and white peaches instead of mango. The peaches were the best part!

Sweet Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
HOLY MOLY these are awesome. The only a few changes that I tried after reading the reviews - use 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 brown. Used 1 tbs water and 1 tbs vanilla extract. Used cooking spray on pan rather than butter. Great to eat by themselves or on a salad. I'm putting them on Twice baked sweet potatos too!

Pork Medallions

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
LOVED IT! Double the sauce. I used lots more mushrooms, 2 cloves of garlic and a large (rather than a small) onion to suit our tastes. I added thyme because I didn't have savory. I used chicken stock granules dissolved in water rather than broth - cut back on salt if the broth or stock you use is salty. Served with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans. AWESOME!

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
fantastic -You can cut back on the sugar a bit if you prefer them not as sweet. Don't bother with the salad oil or the oven - just bake then in the microwave. I didn't use pepper or the walnuts - rather I topped with candied pecans. Loved it and I've officially been assigned to sweet potatoes every Thanksgiving.

Avocado-Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
AH-mazing. One bite is not enough. I used white distilled vinegar because I did not have white wine vinegar on hand. I also used half a red bell pepper and half a orange one for more color. It would probably be good with a serrano chili or the like in it, but it was still wonderful without it. You can make this one just as its written and its great!

Classy Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
my husband and I loved this one. The dill and mustard were a nice change from what we usually have. I added some mushroom and used 4 cloves of garlic. Next time I'll season the chicken more and cook it separate and add at the end.

Plum-Glazed Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
I didn't use this as kabobs but instead just sauteed the chicken then served with the plum sauce over rice. I added some purple onion and 2 garlic cloves (rather then the garlic powder) which I sauted in butter before adding the Jam. I also added a some crushed red pepper for a litle kick. it was fantastic! We'll be making it again.
