Sun-Dried Tomato Basil Orzo

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
Yummy! I ended up using mini shells instead of orzo because my grocery store didn't have any, but this was super tasty! My husband preferred it warm, right after it was made, but I liked it both cold and warm. I was making it for a family get together, so I doubled the amount of pasta but tripled the other ingredients. I made it in a blender because I don't have a food processor and it worked great!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
This was very tasty! I only used about 1 lb. of chicken, and it was plenty. I also cut the sugar in half. It wasn't really coconutty - but it was still very good! Mine wasn't spicy at all - I'll probably add something next time to make it spicy.

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2007
These were a nice change from banana bread or muffins. I changed the white sugar to brown, and cut back on the chocolate chips by about a half a cup. I wish I would have used mini chips instead. A good cookie-more cake like than a normal cookie.

Breadsticks with Parmesan Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2007
These were excellent. I, too, had to add more flour. I tried to work with it as is, but it was way too sticky to knead. I probably added an extra cup of flour, but they turned out wonderful! Just what I was looking for! I brushed the parmesan butter on the breadsticks as soon as they came out of the oven. The only thing I don't like is that this recipe can't be halved easily. This makes a ton of breadsticks!

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2007
These were good, but I added a bunch of chopped garlic. I think that is what made these really good. Nothing super special, but a great way to do green beans.

Key West Penne

Reviewed: May 24, 2007
YUMM!! This was fantastic. I halved the recipe and still probably got 6 servings out of it - so if you are making the whole recipe, be prepared for a lot! I used half cream and half milk to cut down on the calories, and mixed in a little bit of flour to the milk before adding to make sure it would thicken up. It was very fast and very tasty!

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
I have had this recipe in my recipe box forever to try - I wish I would have tried it earlier!! The batter is perfect - I wouldn't change a thing!! We made some substitutions for the dressing with what we had on hand, but it was very tasty! I'm keeping this one on hand!

Chicken Continental

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
This was super easy and good - I added about 2 cups of fresh mushrooms, but I think that's the only change I made. The chicken was cooked perfectly. Makes great leftovers as well.

Cheddar Beef Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
Yummy!! I loved these - I did substitute regular rice for Spanish rice. I would probably just use regular enchilada sauce next time instead of the soup/salsa mixture. I'm excited that I have an extra pan in my freezer for a day that I don't feel like cooking!!

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
Really good!! I couldn't wait to get these out of the oven because they smelled so good! While they tasted good warm, they tasted even better the next day when they were completely cooled. They were a little messy warm as well, but cut nicely the next day. Very rich, so a glass of milk is a must!

Beef Teriyaki

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
Definitely more of a beef and broccoli recipe than beef teriyaki. I doubled the sauce, and it was perfect. The biggest change I would make would be to add more cornstarch so the sauce would thicken quicker so the broccoli would keep it's bright, green color. With a few changes, this recipe is wonderful!

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2007
Fabulous!! The only thing I would change for next time is tripling the sauce instead of doubling! I served the chicken over noodles, so maybe that is why I seemed to need more sauce. There was enough for 3 chicken breasts, but not the fourth. Very easy, yet elegant.

Chocolate Torte

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2007
I'm surprised any of the frosting made it onto the cake - it was so good I found myself eating it before even frosting the cake!!! I took this to work, and it was a hit. Very tasty, and very pretty.

Tonkatsu - Asian-style Pork Chop

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
I am now in love with Panko bread crumbs!!! I really didn't think they would make much of a difference, even after reading the other reviews, but, WOW!! They are so light, airy, and crunchy - so much better than regular bread crumbs! This recipe over all was good, but I do think that it is missing a little bit of something. I served the pork chops with sweet and sour sauce, which complimented them nicely, but it would have been nice to have a little more flavor in the actual pork chops so the sauce wouldn't be necessary. My husband said to definitely keep this recipe around!

Red Skinned Potato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
One of the best potato salads I have had!! I loved the addition of the bacon. I did substitute about 1/4 c. of mayo with mustard, but that was the only change I made. Delish!

Dill Dip III

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
Really good!! I would add more dill next time (the dill taste wasn't very noticeable) but I will definitely make it again!!

Grilled Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
I'm going against the majority on this one - this wasn't one of my favorites. The word that came to my mind was "interesting." I didn't cook it on the grill - but in the oven at 375 for about 30 minutes. The fish was done perfectly, but the toppings didn't go all that well to me. I did forget to put the cheese on top, but then again, I don't think I have ever put cheese on my fish! I probably won't try this again.

Cream of Tomato Soup with Pesto

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2007
I liked this - my husband did not. I think he liked the taste of it, but the texture turned him off because it's not as smooth and creamy as canned soup. I really liked the addition of the pesto. I will probably just do canned soup next time because of it's simplicity and just add pesto to it, and maybe some half & half. I did add the pesto to the whole pot instead of individual servings, but served each bowl with a bit of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Breaded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
This was good, but I had to add extra breadcrumbs and cheese to the top. There wasn't really enough to coat the brussel sprouts. I still like brussel sprouts and butter the best.
