Spaghetti With Red Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2002
Excellent recipe. I followed it exactly except that I put all the ingredients into my crock pot and let it sit on low all day. They aroma was great, the flavor, outstanding. I used the two small cans of minced clams and added a tall can of whole clams. I also added about 1/2 of port wine... served over linguini. I've made this many, many times since, on the stove and enjoyed it every time. Thanks Angela. To Laura B., a recipe is a guide, not a scientific formula. Tweak away and have fun.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: May 31, 2004
I love this recipe and use it often, and I don't change a thing except that I use whatever chicken pieces I have, not a whole. Removing the skin (and all that fat) and still yielding wonderfully tender and tasty chicken is why this one's at the top of my list for chicken. Thanks Kathy, for updating my former recipe with a healthier version.

Port And Mushroom Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: May 11, 2004
I had two split chicken breasts on hand (for two), no shallots, used onions, no fresh mushrooms, used a 4-oz can, but kept all ingredients proportioned the same. I had to come up with something quick. This was so good with all the substitutions, I can only imagine how wonderful it will be when I make it again with the ingredients as written. I added about 2 tablespoons of half and half mixed with a teaspoon of corn starch at the end. Just a preference for a creamier gravy. This was very good, easy and ready in 30 minutes.

Dynamite

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2004
This is as good a recipe for dynamite as I've seen. I double the amount of onions and peppers and add a large can of chopped tomatoes. Just my preference. I like the veggies cut into 1" pieces for a chunkier sandwich. After browning the meat, I put everything into a crock pot and cook on high until very tender. At the end, taste for heat and adjust (slowly) with Red Hot Sauce! Make a pot full and watch it get devoured during halftime! Thanks!

Bread Machine Bagels

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2004
This was my first attempt at bagels. Thanks to a great recipe and helpful tips from reviewers, I'm a believer! Awesome. I added 2 teas cinnamon and 1/2 cup of raisins, sprayed the baking sheet before sprinkling cornmeal, made the holes large enough, let them rise at least 30 minutes after shaping and boiled a full minute each side. Thanks all around. 5 stars easy.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2004
I made 2 of these for Easter. I baked the yams (450 for an hour). Then, pureed them in my food processor. I used 1/2 brown sugar, 1/2 Splenda, a little flour and lemon extract as recommended by other reviewers. My family couldn't believe how good these tasted. My brother brought a delicious italian whipped cream cake from his favorite bakery and they went for this one more, hands down. Even sweet potato haters loved this! Thanks!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2004
Made these yesterday, refrigerated overnight, brought back to room temp this morning and heated at 350 for 30 minutes. What I learned is that the potatoes must be gently mashed together with the other ingredients, and a bit stiff when you spoon it back into the shell. The cheese and such in the mix adds wetness. Watch how much milk you add. My next batch will be perfect. The flavor is awesome, and I followed this recipe exactly. Thanks.

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2004
I made this today, scaled to 10, for Easter Dinner tomorrow. I followed the recipe exactly, but used reduced-fat sour cream and whole milk. I snipped the tips off the asparagus, boiled them for a few minutes to use as garnish (Thanks for the tip other reviewer). Well, I snuck a small bowl of it when it was finished. I can't wait to hear the oooos and ahhhs tomorrow. What a perfect Easter (or Spring dinner) appetizer. What a perfect soup! Thanks! P.S. Buy nearly twice as much asparagus as the recipe calls for ... you have to remove the woody ends.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2004
This is the only recipe I've used for years. I use my bread machine to prepare. I scale it to 8 servings for a perfect standard-size, 12 inch pizza. I cut the amount of water slightly as I found I had to add too much flour to make it a workable ball of dough. Also, after the second rise when the crust is nice and full, it "deflates" after I top it so I'm going to try baking it for 8-10 minutes before topping. Still, this is the best and easiest recipe.

Easy Pizza Sauce I

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2004
This took five minutes to put together. I simmered it for a few minutes instead of waiting. I used half the oil a little less water as recommended, and I loved the results. Perfect. Thanks!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2004
I like the proportions of this recipe. This is cabbage soup which is why there is so much cabbage! FYI, based on 15 servings, each is WW 2, yes 2 points! All good carbs, and great! I add a little milk to each serving because I like it a little creamier.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Great cookies. I took reviewers' suggestions and used half butter/half shortening, 1 1/2 cup flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda. Chilled the batter overnight. They came out perfect! Thanks.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2004
I loved it! I left out the cayenne and subbed the honey for 2T brown sugar as I was out of honey. This is quick, great and so easy. Thanks.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2004
Wow! Perfect as is, but will try it substituting at least half the sugar for Splenda. I made three small loaves (in the foil pans) to freeze two. They freeze/thaw beautifully.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2004
I scaled this to one for myself and there was plenty. I added chopped red bell pepper for color and a few chopped onions. This is a very versatile basic recipe that can be adjusted to many ideas. Also used 2% milk and 1/2 less fat cream cheese. Excellent.

Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
I make meatless red sauce in large quantity to freeze in 3-cup portions. This was the first time I used this recipe and am happy with the result. I always read the reviews before trying a recipe. I followed the most popular tips. One great tip I read was to add baking soda to the sauce to reduce acidity. Another was, for meatless sauce, add a little olive oil. I did both, and it really made a difference. Thanks folks!

Sweet Polish Sausage

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2004
Oh so good ... YUM. I boiled it (lite sausage)for 20 minutes while I placed all the other ingredients and a tbls of corn starch into a warmed crockpot to make the sauce. Perfect served over rice with steamed broccoli on the side. The next time I make this, I may double the sauce and add red and green peppers, and fresh mushrooms. Also great as an appetizer and so easy. Thanks vey much.
