Quick Shrimp Scampi Pasta

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
I made a few changes, and my family liked it just fine. It was not scampi as I remember it at a restaurant, but it certainly tasted fine. I decreased the wine to about 1 cup, added 4 cloves chopped fresh garlic, decreased butter to 1/4 cup and added 3 tbsp evoo. I also used fresh basil. I simmered it long enough to evaporate the alcohol from the wine, closer to 8 minutes. I also mixed in 1/2 tsp cornstarch to thicken and added salt and pepper to taste. Since my shrimp was pre-cooked and frozen, I added it at the end just long enough to heat it through. I also used brown rice pasta because I am gluten intolerant. All in all, it turned out fine and I would make it again.

Chili Colorado

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
This was a great chili recipe. It even received rave reviews from my very picky husband! I used country style pork ribs. I didn't have an onion, so I did without. I also used a few cloves of fresh garlic rather than garlic powder, and added a can of kidney beans. I will definitely be making this again.

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free)

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
This recipe was great. I can have eggs, so I used one extra large egg instead of the egg replacement, and part gluten free pantry baking mix, part millet flour. I also used organic non-hydrogenated shortening in place of the butter, which I feel makes a much better cookie than butter.

Easiest Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2013
Great starting point. I added smoked paprika, which my kids think tastes like bacon. If you like mayonnaise based dressing, it's a great basic recipe. Go forth and experiment! There are so many ways to make this recipe great!

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
I used turkey kielbasa instead of smoked sausage, and I browned it before adding it to the soup to enhance the flavor and color. I cooked the kale in the bacon drippings with some of the onion and the garlic, and simmered it with the potatoes rather than waiting until the last 4 minutes to add it. I also used about 1 cup of cream (got a bit carried away with that, but it still tasted great!).

Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2008
Big hit! I prefer it with all chocolate chips instead of the cocoa, but it is great both ways! I also added a chocolate glaze as recommended in another review and it was great.

Berry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2008
I just made this with fresh blackberries, and it turned out great. It is more like a coffee cake than a cobbler as other reviewers have stated, but it is still fantastic. I baked it for about 45 minutes. I also drizzled a lemon glaze over each piece.
