Apple Loaf

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
This loaf is so tasty - what a perfect fall treat! I took the suggestions of others and used 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves which tasted good, but very reminiscent of McDonald's apple pie filling. The next time I used 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg instead of the cloves and loved it - a lot more subtle but still spiced enough. I think it would be really bland without it! I also left out the walnuts because I don't like nuts in my bread. The apples were hard to shred with an cheese grater, because they were so juicy, I had to really press hard to get good shreds. I left the apple peel on for fiber, but will try shredding with my Cuisinart next time (update - did this and it shredded in like 3 seconds!). I also added about 1 teaspoon lemon juice to keep the apples from turning brown. Be careful about including too much juice from the apples - my loaf crumbled when I cut it. I also added 2 cups of granny smith apples (about 3 apples)and have tried this with Fuji apples with great results both times. I did trim the sugar down to 1/2 a cup and I'm glad I did - it's still pretty sweet (I might even take it down to 1/4 cup when apples are in season). And I love that this recipe doesn't have brown sugar, so substituting for my diabetic father will be a cinch. So so good!

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
Always a crowd favorite. I always double the sauce and increase the mushrooms. I added some cream and didn't find that it helped much, I'd rather go au natural!

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2007
These are more like muffin bars than granola bars (I was picturing oats held together by honey, like Quaker granola bars), but they are good. I threw in some dried blueberries and they were way too sweet. I suggest raisins.

Chilaquiles II

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
Really filling, really good. Not the prettiest though. Definitely don't leave out the salt. I can see why this is a hangover helper - the grease from the tortillas could settle any stomach! I used flour tortillas and taco sauce by Ortega, and will make this every time I'm hung over! I bet it'd be great with corn tortillas. Had it for dinner and it was enough to fill! Bet it would be a great Sunday brunch where you expect your meal to hold you til dinner. **UPDATE: I cut up the tortillas and sprayed both sides with cooking spray, then baked them for 15 minutes at 400 degrees and they tasted the same as fried, but healthier!

Chip Chicken Lollipops

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
I've run into issues with the tenderloins drying out before, so I soaked the tenderloins in buttermilk this time, then took them out and breaded them with sourcream and cheddar baked Lays. This is so good!!! I wish I had seasoned the chicken first, but the baking time was perfect and I dipped it in ranch dressing. Awesome recipe!

Raspberry Peach Crumble

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
If you like tart flavors, then this is for you. I did have the same problem with the over juiciness of the peaches as other reviewers

Unbelievably Awesome Barbeque Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
Quite good. The sesame seed oil leaves an interesting flavor, and I liked the combination of marinara and bbq sauce. I changed up the rest of the recipe to incorporate other things from other bbq chicken pizza - used colby/jack and green onion, and then drizzled more bbq sauce on top. Tasted like a California Pizza Kitchen pizza! Got rave reviews.

Pizza Dough III

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
This made a nice crust - it's more bready than a pizzeria pizza crust, but still good. I will pre-bake it next time as others said because of the mushy middle. I split the dough to make 2 pizzas but it was too thin - the dough did not rise much in 30 minutes, so next time I will just make one. I used cornmeal on the pizza stone which made the crust come off easily. This was great!

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2007
This recipe is sooooo good and easy. It makes really thin brownies, I would consider doubling it and putting it in the same sized baking dish - as it is, I really had to stretch the batter or it wouldn't cover the bottom of the dish. I used Reynold's Release aluminum foil and it came out sooo easily. I took someone else's suggestion and used half chocolate chips and half butterscotch chips and only needed 20 minutes - I'd rather it come out underdone than overdone, but in this case it was perfect.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
I halved the recipe, and thought this was really good but I will reduce the sugar that mixes with the cream cheese by half next time, and added orange and lemon zest, which I thought added a nice flavor. I also needed to half the butter. I like this cold or warm.

Strawberry Napoleons

Reviewed: May 27, 2007
This recipe is really easy and really tasty - it doesn't get much better than that. I was asked to bring dessert last minute, so I needed something really quick to put together, and this was minimal fuss. I used puff pastry shells and broke each one into 3 pieces - 2 layers of strawberries and 2 layers of pudding mix - really impressive looking. The pudding mix is just the right amount for 6 pastry shells. Great when strawberries are in season!

Raspberry and Strawberry Buckle

Reviewed: May 21, 2007
This cake (as most, with crumble toppings) doesn't look so hot the next day, but I keep toasting a piece and I'm surprised at how much I love it, each time. Might try strawberries and wild Maine blueberries next time as I am not hot on the raspberry seeds. This cake almost tastes like it has a little sour cream or cream cheese in it. A really great coffee cake. The topping is really good, but I will use 1/2 the butter next time (1/4 cup as previously suggested) - I also had problems with bubbling over and richness. Really fast and easy to make, to boot!

Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: May 18, 2007
I used gorgonzola and this came out great. Really really well flavored. I started using scallions instead of chives because I hate buying a whole pack of chives to use a few pieces, and I thought that the chives were overpowering the flavor. Doubled the Worcestershire and hot sauces (I used Cholula and still thought I couldn't taste anything - might try a smokier hot sauce next time). Love these burgers!

Chocolate Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2007
I cannot BELIEVE how easy these are to make, and how amazing they look when they're done! The hardest part about these chocolate pretzels is peeling open the kisses! I think these would look great with an almond or nut on top too, I think.

Toasty Egg Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2007
Pretty yummy, definitely great with a runny yolk as MOLLE888 said. The mayo gives it a creaminess but I love a miture of ketchup/frank's red hot sauce for my breakfast egg sandwiches so I may dip in that next time. I used cheddar cheese but it might be too bland for this - I may stick with the american cheese as written in the recipe later. Really a quick, filling meal.

Mostaccioli Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2007
Both me and my boyfriend liked this recipe - it's no frills but it's comfort food. I threw in a couple of extra handfuls of mozzarella cheese which I'm going to tell myself is offset by the lowfat cottage cheese :). And using lowfat cottage cheese - I thought I was going to hate it but I never noticed it. This recipe is really cheesy but healthy with the addition of spinach. Good stuff. Couldn't find mostaccioli, so used ziti instead.

Italian Sausage Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2007
I forgot the tomatoes and the zucchini and this was still great. I increased the amount of tortellini (1 pound was a little much), but both me and my boyfriend loved this recipe. FYI - grocery stores are beginning to carry smaller servings of wine (kind of like juice boxes or single serving bottles), so that is always a good alternative if you don't normally drink wine. I like the heavy taste of a Cabernet Sauvignon in this recipe. My next choices would be a Merlot or a Shiraz. I think a Pinot Noir would be too sweet.

Banana Tortilla Snacks

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2007
This is soooo good! I think 15 seconds in the microwave as stated by other reviewers is the key, because I put it in for 30-35 by mistake and my banana started melting. I will not do the 'open end' roll up from now on, as the honey turns to complete liquid after microwaving, so I will wrap this like a burrito from now on, and prevent the drippies of the goodness! I tried packaging it in the evening but the honey melts out and gets the tortilla gross, not sure what to do about that. Even making it in the morning and saran wrapping it, it's mushy by the time I get in to work. Could also be because I cut the banana in half. Either way, I loved this recipe and I'm dying to try other things people suggested like Nutella and cinnamon. Added a sprinkle of wheat germ which adds a nice texture and is a great way to hide something healthy for kids.

Quick Catfish Fillets

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2007
I thought it was interesting. The first batch came out soggy but the second batch came out crunchy and I liked that one better. I would like a less sweet/sour sauce with it.

Butter Tart Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2007
I don't know why I kept looking at this recipe but I finally made it. Loved this out of the oven (after it was cool) - I don't normally like maple syrup but someone said it couldn't be forgotten, so I did it. It made this great crunchy topping. I will decrease the sugar next time to about 1/2 a cup - it was way too sweet. I will also whisk the cooked mixture vigorously the whole time cooking, as I did get scrambling in parts. Also baked it at 350 as suggested by others for 25 minutes. The boyfriend and roommate loved these! I'm dying to try the strawberry suggestion someone else made.
