Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2001
I liked this recipe, but my husband is kind of a picky eater, and complained about the onions in it. I thought it to be quite tasty though.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2001
My brownie-lover friend loved it. My picky husband loved it too, and he said he could eat the whole bowl himself. Great for people who like brownies and chocolate.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2002
Delicious! But... I did not use the anchovie paste. I used only one tablespoon of honey, and my husband still thought it was sweet. Next time I will use half a tablespoon. I used "Jay's Signature Pizza Crust" recipe. Be careful with the measurement of pepper. I think mine was a little bit too spicy, next time I will cut down on the pepper too. This recipe was enough to cover Jay's crust.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2002
Delicious! This makes a real thick pizza, but very soft. I would suggesting getting a giant stone plate. Mine was large, but it expanded beyond the size of the plate. I used "Exquisite Pizza Sauce" recipe as a sauce. I used a little more than 8 oz of shredded mozzarela cheese, and I thought it was enough.

Fra Diavolo Sauce With Pasta

Reviewed: May 20, 2004
Maybe 1/2 teaspoon pepper would be better for the spicy-sensitive. I used frozen cocktail shrimp, and next time, I will use the smaller shrimp and let it thaw first because frozen shrimp gives out a lot of water and it boils. Also remove the tail from the shrimp so you don't have to do it as you're eating. I used a can of whole tomatoes, and let it cook for long enough so it wouldn't be so watery.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: May 20, 2004
My 2 year old and husband loved this one, and he is not a seafood person. I thought it was ok, I prefer my fish with lemon only. Very easy to make. Used 1 pound bag of frozen fish for same amount of sauce. Did not use salt, thought the parmesan already had enough of it. Also cut down on the butter. Will do it again.

Jo Jo's Favorite Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2004
This is a good recipe. Even my husband who does not like bananas thought they were delicious. I scaled it to make 24 muffins, and it yielded exactly 24. I added just a little more milk and bananas to make sure it was moist enough, and it turned out perfect.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2004
Good recipe. My husband and toddler liked them. I scaled down to make 12 muffins, used wild blackberries that my son and I had picked up instead of blueberries, and they turned big, moist and great. I used a little more berries than the recipe called for.

Rice with Black Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2004
It turned out good, but recipe should note to use chopped stewed tomatoes instead of sliced, cause the slices didn't blend in causing some tomatoes chunks in the mix (I used Hunt's). I don't know if that's how it's supposed to be, but I will make it again, using chopped tomatoes. My picky husband doesn't like beans, so he didnt' care for it, but that's ok cause there was plenty for me and my 2 year old...

Carrot Patties

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2004
This is a good substitute for steak. My two year old liked it. From other reviews, I took it would need more spices, so I used 3 cloves of garlic, and some steak pepper seasoning, and also I used 1 cup of whole wheat bread crumbs instead of 1/4 so it would hold better. I dropped teaspoons of the mix in the frying pan and made the patties from there. Quite tasty.

Ribbon Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2004
I made this yesterday. My toddler loved it. My husband liked it. My advice is put the flavor you least like in the bottom because it sticks in the bottom (but not too bad!). When you mix the unflavored gelatin with the water, dissolve it well cause it could form tiny little balls of gelatin. I used a mixer to mix the sour cream, milk and gelatin. If you are a jello fan, this is the recipe for you!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2004
This is very yummy. Sweet, but not too sweet. Just right. I will certainly do it again, follow the recipe to the T, but use dried onion flakes, cause my picky husband picks on the onions! I think my toddler might have thought a little too spicy, that's cause I added extra ginger and pepper, but there's no need for it, cause the catchup already has spices in it.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2004
Excellent mix of spices blended together. My two year old loved it, so did my husband. Will do it again, following it to the T. I used a potato peeler to peel my potatoes, so it wasn't much work!

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2004
Like other reviewers, I found this to be salty. I doubled the sauce and used 3 pounds of chicken. Some people thought the sauce was not enough. Maybe because they used 6 breasts, and not 6 breast halves like the author suggests(that would be 3 breasts). The sauce was enough for me. I will make it again, but next time, only one teaspoon of butter, and use regular cheese cream and add dried onions and chives to it, and maybe 3/4 of the packet. I think this will cut back on the salt. Be careful not to overcook the pasta, it cooks rather quickly (5 minutes is good).

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2004
Easy and simple recipe. I used instant rice, cooked for less than 10 minutes (should have used less broth I think, cause it was a bit watery). Too bad it didn't use the beans liquid, I don't like waste, that's why I'm giving this 4 stars.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2004
Like other reviewers suggested, I doubled the recipe but didn't double the topping. There was enough topping for two batches. I added a little extra milk, cause I thought the batter was thick. It rendered 22 big muffins using a regular muffin pan size, a little more than 3/4 full. 1 pint case of blue berries is almost enough for 2 cups, so I added some leftover frozen berries to complete. I made the mistake to overbake them, 29 minutes, and they were crunchy on the outside. Next time, 25 minutes should be enough. I liked them, the crumb topping makes it very crunchy and yummy! Will definitely make them again!

Butter Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
I do not get the 5 stars. These were very mushy. They did not hold together at all. I followed the recipe except for I did not use the jalapeno, and added some crushed red pepper instead. I also did not use all the oil required - if I did it would be extremely soggy, 2 tablespoons is enough for frying them. I dropped them by the spoon in the pan. They tasted ok. I am still looking for the perfect veggie burger recipe though.

Self-Filled Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2004
I followed the suggestions by one reviewer to use 1/4 for the bottom layer and fill up to 2/3. It worked. I got 24 muffins, they didn't get so big, but were yummy and soft inside. If you want them bigger, than I would fill 20-22 cups. I did not use paper liners, and it was ok. I greased the bottom of the pan first, made the cream cheese mix, turned up the heat, and then did the batter. That way the batter won't have to wait for a long time while you make the cream.

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2004
I didn't know if I would give it 4 or 5. I will give it a 5 because my husband raved about it. He is a chips and salsa kind of guy, I guess that's why he liked it so much. The directions were hard and too long to follow exactly. I took some shortcuts. Took 1 1/2 hours from start to getting it out of the oven. Did not marinade the chicken. Preheated oven only at the end, cause the sauce takes about 1 hour to cook. Boiled the chicken first for about 15 minutes in the broth/dried onion combo only , and then got it out, and shredded. That way I did not have to pick up the pieces one at a time. I used 10 6 inches tortillas instead of 6, and was able to fill up 2 8X11 pans. They were a little crunchy on the ends, but still good. Did not use heavy cream, just half and half, but that did not make a difference, the tortillas still broke when I was not careful. My husband asked me to make it again. This was my first enchilada attempt. I will try experimenting with some other recipes too, and maybe use bouillon instead of broth, that will make the sauce cook faster.

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2004
This is a healthy way to make corn. The advantage of cooking corn this way is that the vitamins and minerals stay in the corn, not just go away as with cooking in water. Cooked for 30 minutes, corn was not totally juicy, but next time I will try soaking it in water first so it keeps some juiciness inside. It has a nice smoky flavor too, as if it was cooked on the wild campfire.
