Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
very tasty, although I did not follow this exact recipe. like some people, I had been craving more of a bar, rather than a cake-like recipe. I only did half a recipe, but I also halved the baking soda and baking powder, added a splash of vanilla extract and added 1 tsp pumpkin spice, plus extra cinnamon. came out dense and moist! added pumpkin bar frosting from this site.

Chicken Tortilla Soup V

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
Delicious! I did alter a few things per suggestions. I used less salsa, added rinsed black beans, substituted lime juice instead of lemon and have baked and boiled chicken (I've made this twice!). I prefered using the baked because it wasn't as chewy. I also hand-shredded the chicken. I omitted the tortilla chips but added montery cheese on top!

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
A quicker recipe I used(I'll admit that I did not use this particular recipe) took only about 30 minutes to cook. It tastes wonderful! use two 14oz cans reduced Na chicken broth, 1.5cup water (add more as needed), 1cup brown lentils rinsed and drained, 1cup sliced carrots, 1/2cup chopped onions, 1tsp snipped fresh thyme or 1/2tsp if dried, 1/8tsp grd red pepper (or red pepper sauce), 2 cloves minced garlic and 6ozs cooked smoked sausage, sliced. combine everything except thyme and sausage and bring to a boil, then simmer covered for 20-25 mins until lentils/veggies are tender. stir in fresh thyme and sausage and heat through. My son LOVED this and it will definitely be in my repertoire! Serves 5.

Fragrant Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Very good and fragrant, especially with basmati. However, it tasted as if it were "missing" something. Maybe not enough curry or maybe it needs some "heat" to it. I drained the tomatoes as one person suggested. I was unable to find light coconut milk so I used regular - note that the cream at the top of the can should be skimmed off first before using. Also, I did not have any cloves so I omitted them - but even still I don't think this was the "missing" taste. I will add more curry next time and something to give it more spicy-heat!

Simply Traditional Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Very Good! I had to omit some items and substitute others that I did not have. I used only a pound of ground beef, omitted the italian sausage and instead of ricotta cheese I used cottage cheese. Instead of marinara I used a jar of spaghetti sauce. I also used an 8x8 baking dish since my recipe was scaled back. This came out really good and my son, who is picky, liked this as well. The only negative was that the noodles, which I did not cook before hand, were chewier than I would have liked. Next time I may either boil them for half the time or just cook the lasagna longer than the suggested time.

Slow Cooked Pork Barbeque

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Delicious! I did a few changes, however! I had pork spare ribs and I seasoned them with lots of minced garlic and pepper. I also added one-half cup of beef broth and splashed white vinegar over the ribs (probably about another half cup). I cooked mine on high for about 5-6 hours. After about 3 hours I poured a savory bbq sauce over them (Bulls Eye Guiness). The meat just fell right off the bone!
