Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
My husband loves this dish - easy to make with common food items. I make it at least twice a month!

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2008
Difficult to find tasty quinoa recipes, but this is a good one! I didn't have vegetable broth, so substituted chicken broth instead and omitted the onions (husband hates them). I have made this countless times and passed the recipe on, too - always turns out delicious!

Scallop Scampi

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
Good taste, but the salt could be omitted in my opinion - I think the cheese gives it enough of a salty taste. I also added peas in at the end to add a vegetable to the dish. Husband loved it!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
This is the best good basic banana bread that I have ever made - I've come back to it and made it several times. I even buy extra bananas at the grocery store so they can go brown and I have an excuse to make this again! I use 1/2 ww flour and 1/2 white flour so I can feel better about eating it :) It does equally well as one whole loaf or divided up into smaller loaves(just adjust the baking time). I added mini chocolate chips the last time and YUM!! (even my mother-in-law wanted to take some home with her!)

Garlic Shrimp Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
Pretty good...I sauteed mushrooms, grated carrots, and peppers with the garlic for added vegetables. This seemed to add alot to the recipe for my husband and myself.

Floating Island Punch

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
This is a great punch, but you definitely don't need the sugar syrup! I love sweet things and it was plenty sweet enough for me without it! Also, as suggested by others, I added the carbonated liquids last which was a good idea. For my daughter's first birthday party, I froze Elmo's heads from "Wilton" into muffin tins with water so they could float around as the ice cubes - so cute!

Savory Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
I thought all deviled eggs were the same until I tried this recipe - yum! I used rice vinegar for a softer taste and, as others noted, needed an additional 2 Tbsp. mayo. I also did not think it needed any salt added at all, but overall, this is a keeper!

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
I added extra zucchini, as suggested, and even made the topping; however, I felt this was dry and lacked flavor.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
Yummy! I multiplied the recipe to feed 25 people for my daughter's birthday party and it was great! I used less water than called for becuause I like the sauce a little thicker and used just a couple shakes of salt because my husband is always freaking out about how much salt is in stuff. Thanks for a great recipe!

Blueberry Dump Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2008
I melted the butter, mixed it in with the cake mix first and then dropped the cake mix in dollops over the blueberry/sugar mixture. Tastes great, but bakes very flat. To serve, I piled two pieces and topped with whipped cream.

Chocolate Scotcheroos

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
My mom has been making this recipe (sort of) for years, but cuts down on the sugar, PB, and choc topping to decrease calories. When I make it, I follow this recipe to a tee (and say forget the calories!), because it is so yummy sweet and delicious. I don't know anyone that doesn't love these!

Greek Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2008
This is yummy. My changes: omitted the olives (husband hates them), increased the cucumbers (too many from the garden!), doubled the feta, added about 3 Tbsp of mayo, a dash or 2 of dill, and used Gazebo Room greek salad dressing instead of italian. Tastes great in whole wheat pitas!

Hello Dolly Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
I would definitely recommend, as others have, making the graham cracker crust and pressing it into the bottom first. Otherwise, easy, gooey, sweet, and yummy!!

Yum, yum, yum!!! Sooo sweet and chocolatey...the only thing I noticed is that it took less milk than called for in the recipe for the icing.
