Thai Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
This was good and creamy. It's definitely not a mainstream type of dip that would appeal to a lot of people. I could eat only so much of it as a dip, so I added some peas and ate it with rice. Also, the coconut cream was a bit overpowering, and I only used 3/4 cup instead of 1 cup.

Creamy Spinach Tortellini

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2007
I liked this with all the adjustments other reviewers suggested. I used 3/4 cup of milk and half a packet of Italian dressing seasoning for the blandness others were talking about. To cut back on fat, I used neufatchel cheese and sauteed the onions with garlic. With all the liquid from the tomatoes and spinach plus the extra milk, I found myself with too much sauce. It was the right consistency, but I probably should've used more than 9 oz of tortellini. Great way to prepare some extra spinach I had on hand.

Absolute Mexican Cornbread

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2007
This is so good. I really wanted to add more cheese, so I cut out the butter completely. I used 1 1/2 cups of cheese and 1/2 cup of chopped jalapenos for that extra kick. Like most other reviewers, I didn't need the whole hour to bake this-just 40 minutes. I used the whole cup of sugar, and I'm glad I didn't use butter. It's cheesy and spicy and somewhat sweet. Great combo of flavors!

Maple Bacon Pancake

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
I really liked the basic construct of this recipe. I couldn't follow the recipe exactly because I didn't have everything required in my pantry. Here's what I did. I used whole wheat pancake mix, italian turkey sausage mixed into batter instead of bacon, and some frozen broccoli florets. Other than that, I followed the recipe with the cheese, eggs, etc. It came out so good. I did have to bake for about 15 minutes for the dish to attain a firm enough texture to cut.

Alfredo Light

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2007
I used fat free half-and-half instead of water, and it had plenty of flavor with the chicken broth. I didn't use any flour and used cornstarch instead. Great recipe and thickened up in no time!

Lentil Soup II

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2007
I used chicken bouillon to water since I didn't have any broth on hand. I did have to use a little extra water for more of a soupy consistency. As another reviewer suggested, I added the tomato sauce much later to the cooking process so that the lentils would cook faster (I understand that it has something to do with the acidity). This tastes kind of like Progresso Lentil Soup only much better! Thanks for this recipe!

Hashbrown Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
I used light sour cream and reduced fat condensed cream of chicken. It came out great even without all the fat. It may have done the dish good to add some ham and green onions. Maybe instead of cream of chicken, I could add condensed cheddar soup. It might bring out more flavor. Like some others, I had to bake this in the oven for 1 hour 10 minutes.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
This was really good. I used a medium-sized cookie scoop and came out with 3 dozen cookies exactly. I didn't have any butter flavored shortening, so I used regular shortening and margarine. I also ran out of raisins for the last batch, so I used craisins instead. The ground cloves really add a whole lot to the depth of flavor. Also, I would not recommend baking these for more than 9 minutes. They may be super soft coming out of the oven, but they get a lot firmer the next day. YUMMY!

Seven Layer Gelatin Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
I liked the presentation of this dessert. The milky layer was very creamy, and even though I enjoyed it, there was only so much I could handle. Next time I'll make less of the creamy layers.

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2007
This was pretty good. I added less chicken and replaced chile beans for refried beans. Next time I'll add less sour cream and less salsa. It was kind of runny, but still tasty.

Gourmet Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
This was good as a once in a while deal. It's a sandwiched heart attack, but tasty and easy nonetheless.

Gluten-Free Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
I whipped the heck out of the batter to incorporate a lot of air to make it as fluffy as possible. I also used heavy whipping cream instead of milk. It tastes better the day you make it. It dried out a little the next day, but frosting helped with that. My gluten-free friends said it was among the better tasting cakes they've tried. This recipe made exactly 24 standard cupcakes but I had to bake them at 320F for 15 minutes.

Make Ahead French Toast

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
This was good. I followed the recipe exactly except I added a dash of cinnamon to the mix. Next time I think I may make less of the liquid mixture and soak it for a few hours rather than overnight. It was a little too soggy for me. Also, I think you can get by with using a lot less melted butter. Yummy!

Corn and Cheddar Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
This was good, but I don't know if I'll make this again. I have an older recipe that I think I'll stick with. Thanks though.

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2007
I loved this recipe. I added a whole container of yogurt and replaced the cream with lite coconut milk. I also added some peas and more garam masala. Other reviewers are right when they say it tastes much like regular chicken curry. Still tasty though.

Hot Mexican Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
I really enjoyed this dip. I omitted the evaporated milk because a lot of people were saying it came out too soupy. I added a can of black beans, and that added great substance. I also used hot salsa which gave it a perfect kick.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
I used extra lean ground beef, and I didn't drain it since there wasn't much to drain. I didn't add any water, and it came out great. Will definitely be keeping this in my recipe box.

Corn Cheese Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
Next time I will add small cut potatoes. Instead of butter I used whipping cream, and I mixed in a bouillon cube for flavor.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
I really liked the taste of this. I could've probably gone without the butter. To save time and cleanup, I just made the sauce stovetop, added the broccoli and cooked for a few minutes, and then I added the cashews. Very good!
