Frozen Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
These aren't bad, though I didn't think there was anything special about them either. The batch made 30 muffins for me and though the muffin paper was greasy on the bottom, the muffins seemed a bit dry.

Orzo with Chicken and Artichokes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
This recipe has been a regular in our house for a while now. We typically don't make it with orzo and just use a 13 oz. box of whole grain pasta; any pasta will do, this dish is about the other flavors. Also, we sub 8 oz. of bacon for the pancetta. :) Sometimes we'll add a cup of chicken broth depending on how long it sits on the stovetop.

Apple Bacon Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
Not any one flavor was predominant; they all blended well. I used a jar of canned tomatoes from last summer, so I added 1 tsp. of dried Italian seasonings. Also used kidney beans since I didn't have pinto.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2014
We haven't bought taco seasoning in a long time now, thanks to this recipe. We love it because we can leave out the salt, and we don't miss it at all.

Lemon Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2014
We make this regularly now. Like others, we remove the lemon slices after boiling them for the 5-8 minutes and are happy with the outcome. Best eaten right away; the leftovers lose a lot flavor within a day.

Spinach Cheese Manicotti

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2014
This was good. I had a lot of cheese mixture leftover for the 8 oz. of noodles. Also, my noodles still weren't quite cooked after 55 minutes. The cheese mixture is similar to the mixture that I use for lasagna. I'm glad I tried this, but probably won't make this recipe again and just make lasagna.

Good-Morning Banana Nut Cereal

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
Really good; I made a double batch and ate the whole bowl. Loved how healthy it is. Like others, I did not have oat bran, so I subbed equal parts wheat germ and ground flaxseed meal and I think that worked well. Also subbed pecans for walnuts since that is what I had. I don't like meals super sweet, so based on comments I halved the sugar and liked that. Will make again.

Ham Tetrazzini

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
Really good base recipe for personal tastes. We doubled the cheese and used Swiss in addition to cheddar. Also added garlic, bell pepper, broccoli, mushrooms, and black pepper. Subbed milk for the water and the result was creamy, cheesey, saucy goodness.

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Really good. I was afraid the cranberries would be over-powering, but they were not. I have a 10" pan, so I used 2 cups of cranberries and 3/4 c. pecans. My cake was done after 50 minutes in a 325-degree oven. I think I will also try this recipe with tart cherries and almonds.

Ginger Chicken with Cashews

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
We actually thought this dish was bland. I think using fresh ginger root or chopped ginger in a jar would have been better than ground ginger. We used reduced-sodium bouillon and soy sauce, so we didn't have a salt issue as others had.

Cream of Broccoli Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2013
I thought the soup was too runny for a "cream" soup, even after holding back 1/2 cup of milk. I added a Tbsp of corn starch and melted 2 cups of cheddar in the soup to thicken it up. I also thought there was plenty of broccoli. It just seemed to miss the mark for me.

Dark Chocolate Cherry Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2013
Soft and messy, even sitting overnight in the fridge. I couldn't serve this to guests. Trying to salvage it by putting in the freezer.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
Really good and super easy! Like others, I halved the butter and sautéed onions and garlic first. I also threw in some red pepper flakes. I mixed everything ahead of time and let it sit in a bowl in the fridge until it was time to bake it. Served this as the vegetable with dinner.

Overnight Caramel Pecan Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
This is my go-to breakfast recipe when I host overnight guests. I've made these many times and don't change the recipe at all. The dental floss trick works great!

Orange Pecan French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
I liked how the orange came through, though it was a bit too sweet for my tastes. The caramel layer seemed thick and distracted from the French toast itself. I'm glad I tried this recipe, though it's not a keeper for me.

High-Fiber, High-Protein Breakfast Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
I make these regularly now and take them for a mid-morning snack at work. One batch I substituted applesauce for banana, and another batch I added a tsp. of cocoa powder. I think the original recipe is the best. Each batch I've used standard rolled oats instead of the quick-cooking oats, and I think the bars have been fine. Thanks for the recipe!!

The Best Parmesan Chicken Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
This was good. The croutons and cheese formed this delicious crusty layer, though it didn't stick to the chicken at all. I bought Texas Toast brand croutons which are bigger than other croutons and the larger size made it more difficult to eat. Next time, I'll look for a smaller crouton and use a smaller pan too; 9 x 13 was a bit large.

Sweet Potato Pound Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2013
A 5-star recipe that I will make again! In my opinion, a more appropriate title might be "Spice Cake with Orange Glaze". The sweet potatoes are unrecognizable in the cake and the cinnamon and nutmeg come through nicely. The texture and consistency of the cake wasn't like a pound cake to me. The orange glaze is a must, and really made the cake sing. A Thanksgiving hit; will make again!

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2013
This IS the Nestle Tollhouse recipe. I've always had an issue with spreading the dough, and the tips about using parchment paper works! Thanks so much! If you use M&Ms instead of chocolate chips, save some to put on the top about half way through baking. If you mix them all in, you won't see them on top of the finished cookie.
