My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2001
Great recipe! I altered it a little. To cut some of the fat and calories I used 2 cups of half and half and 2 cups of fat free milk. I also made the roux with 1/2 cup of butter and 1/2 cup flour. It was still very rich and creamy. I added more clams too, yum!

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2001
I must have done something wrong! But with so few instructions, I can't imagine what. It must have been the cut of meat I bought. With all these rave reviews I was expecting ecstasy on a plate! The meat was not so tender and I had to add some flour to make a gravy. And the gravy was only okay tasting. Despite it all, my husband and son enjoyed the meal but it was just not what I was expecting. Maybe I'll try this again with a different cut of meat.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2002
WOW! This really is World's Best Lasagna! From reading all the reviews, I made these changes: Added an additional 1/2 pound of ground meat, omitted the salt, doubled the onions, all the spices, the parsley, canned tomatoes, paste, and sauce. I also doubled the filling ingredients and made three layers instead of two. Everyone raved about the lasagna and I have sauce left over for another use. SIDE NOTE: For anyone who thinks they don't like ricotta cheese: Buy it at an Italian market. Brands such as Sierra or Polly-O. There is no comparison to the taste or texture of supermarket brands. I think that's why I see recipes with regular cottage cheese instead of riccota. I don't use supermarket riccota under any circumstances, it's just plain nasty!

Absolutely Best Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2003
The texture of these brownies were too cake-like for my liking. I even used regular flour and added some chocolate syrup to make them more dense, but it didn't help much. The flavor was only okay, too.

Lemon Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2003
Very easy to make and very moist! Adding a lemon glaze gives it an extra kick of lemon that I think it needs to make it special. I served it with a dollop of whipped cream and fresh raspberries...yum!

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2003
I've made these scones at least 4 times and they are wonderful. I use about 8 tablespoons of OJ and also add the zest of one orange for extra orange flavor. I just shape by hand rather use a biscuit cutter...I think they look nicer.

Salad with Prosciutto and Caramelized Pears and Walnuts

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2003
I've made this salad twice and yes, the dressing is runny but it still works fine. I tossed my greens with the dressing, place them on a large shallow platter(with a lip) then arrange the rest of the indredients on top drizzling a bit more dressing over everything. I did not use all the dressing, about half. It looked beautiful and tasted wonderful! I did add some crumbled goat cheese and was very pleased with the addition. If this salad sounds good to you, try it and don't worry about the runny dressing because the orange flavor it adds to the salad is well worth it.

Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2004
You can't beat this recipe for being quick and easy. The flavor of the cookies was nice but I didn't care for the color. Even at a baking them of 12 minutes they looked undercooked and at the recommended time of 7 to 9 minutes they were very raw inside. Unless I'm really pressed for time, I think I'll stick to a more traditional cookie recipe.

Silver's Savory Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2004
Thanks to all the other reviewers I was able to turn this 3 star dish into a real tasty meal. I was happy to find a recipe that didn't call for condensed canned soup but many of the reviews said it was too bland. I made the following changes; I used 4 tablespoons of butter and a 1/2 cup of flour to make the roux before adding double the amount of chicken broth and milk. That is essencial if you want enough sauce to cover the rest of the ingredients. I also added a few dashes of hot sauce and Old Bay seasoning to give more flavor. I replaced the provolone chesse with parmesan and put the cheeses on before pouring the sauce over everything as the last step. Overall it turned out well but like another reviewer mentioned there were way too many dishes and pans to wash.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2004
My husband is not a big fish fan so when he say things like "this is really good" and "this is the best salmon I've ever eaten", I know I have a winning recipe. I started marinating my salmon first thing in the morning to give it about 8 hours in the sauce. The cooking time was perfect, 20 minutes was just right. Also, be sure to use real maple syrup.

Caribbean Holiday Shrimp

Reviewed: May 31, 2004
This was good, but I was hoping for a more intense flavor. I marinated the shrimp for about 3 hours. Also, I prefer when recipes give specific amounts for the ingredients. "The juice of 2 limes" can range greatly depending on the size of the limes. I'm not sure how much lime juice I used but it was not enough. Next time I will try using maybe 4 tablespoons of lime juice as well as brown sugar instead of white and more of that too.

Corn and Zucchini Melody

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2004
This was easy to prepare and very tasty. I doubled the recipe and used red onion for a little more color. Everyone loved it. Although I think anything you top with cheese and bacon would be a hit.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2005
I brought this to a potluck and had many rave reviews. I did make a few changes. Since I didn't have any vegetable broth, I added the liquid from the marinated artichokes. Added sliced mushrooms at that point and let most of the liquid cook out before adding the spinach, artichokes and sauce. For the cheese layer I mixed together ricotta, parmesan, mozzerella and two eggs. (I love ricotta! But no gritty supermarket brands...I always buy from an Italian market...so much better!) I didn't have any feta either but I don't think it mattered. I will be making this again and again.

Dessert Crepes

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2005
Very tasty! The batter whipped up perfectly in the blender...no lumps! This recipe also makes more then 8 crepes. I know I used a smaller pan then recommended but out of one recipe I got 25 (6 inch) crepes.

Zucchini Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2005
I think it is interesting that a recipe called "zucchini parmesan" actually does not have parmesan in the recipe...anyway...like the previous reviewer, I added sliced sauted mushrooms and mixed them with the sauted onion and garlic into the sauce. I also used sliced mozzarella and assembled it in layers as if I were to assemble lasagna. Of course I also added parmesan, too. I liked that it didn't call for breading and frying the zuchini first...saving time and calories. Very tasty and a great way to use up all the zuchini I have from my garden.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2005
These are awesome and so versatile. Made as written and servered with marinara sauce they have an Italian flavor. I made them with pepper-jack and sharp cheddar cheese with a dash of cumin for a Mexican flair. There is also a recipe on this site that adds Old Bay seasoning for a seafood flavor. I think just about any cheese combo would work with this recipe.
