Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2001
I used cider vinegar, fat free mayo, golden raisins, turkey bacon, and peanuts in this. Absolutely delish! Tastes just like a local cafe's wonderful recipe. Thanks Eleanor!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2001
After reading so many wonderful reviews, I had to try these. These are soooooooo good. I did have to add a bit of milk to the frosting to thin it out, but that's all I had to change. I think we ate the whole pan in 2 days. And these are definitely better the first day. But you can warm them up in the microwave and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream - heavenly! Thanks for a delicious recipe that I'll be making again and again!

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2001
I needed a frosting recipe for cookies I was making. My friend had neglected to give me her frosting recipe with the cookies, so I needed something delicious and easy. It's so good, I had a hard time not licking the spoon as I frosted. Absolutely delicious! Will use this recipe from now on.

Holiday Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2001
So easy to make & absolutely delicious! Everyone asked for the recipe. Instead of 24 peppermint candies, I used 6 red, white, and green striped candy canes. I found that crushing them very finely makes it taste more pepperminty; some recipes call for peppermint oil, but this doesn't need it. I did push bigger pieces into the top. You may want to make a double batch if taking to a party.

Chili Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2002
Good but not great. Too bland and it needs salt. My husband can be picky, and he wasn't too wild about it. I probably won't be making it again.

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2002
This was ok. I did have to bake it about 30-35 minutes, and there was too much melted butter. 2-3 tbsp should be enough, unless you love lots. I'll try the baked dijon salmon recipe next time.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2002
Wonderful! My husband told me it was just like a 'fancy' restaurant dish. Served it over angel hair pasta and with homemade rolls. Will definitely make again, but I will add mushrooms and skip the salt. I also added a bit more pepper to the flour mixture and more water to tomato mixture when it was done.

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2002
I agree with the last rating - not nearly as special/great as the reviews make it sound. I thought it was very, very bland. I may make it again and use a large can of Italian stewed tomatoes and add fresh mushrooms. I haven't decided what spices it needs, but it needs something.

Paprika Chicken with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2002
I served this over angel hair pasta which I very lightly buttered. The mushrooms were so good! But I did sprinkle some onion powder in with them so they wouldn't taste as buttery. I liberally sprinkled the chicken with the spices, so no problem with blandness. Used extra mushrooms too. Served with hot, crispy whole wheat rolls.

Cooking Light magazine's Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2002
Very easy and quick. I followed someone else's suggestion to pour the sauce in & put the chicken on top. Didn't get very soggy at all. Served over rotelle pasta and with croissants. Yummy!

Lemon Poppy Seed Bundt Cake

Reviewed: May 16, 2002
So moist and delicious! This was so good, we couldn't stop eating it. I did make a glaze with powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla to drizzle over the top.

Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: May 21, 2002
Absolutely delicious! My husband said it was like eating at Bravo's or Olive Garden. I did end up using all the butter & olive oil because I tossed it with angel hair pasta. Also added 2x the amount of garlic & lemon and even added more lemon juice and some garlic powder after I tossed with pasta - it lost some of the flavor. Cut up a red bell pepper & a head of fresh broccoli & added right before I let it simmer for 15 min. Served with flaky croissants.

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: May 23, 2002
I taste tested the sauce before baking & it definitely needed the hot sauce others have recommended. I just sprinkled some in until I liked the flavor. NEVER CARAMELIZED THOUGH. I let the chicken bake for 45 minutes & broiled for a few, but it just didn't work. I also let it stand for a few minutes like someone else said-no luck & chicken got tough. Great flavor though.

Veggie Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2002
Recipe didn't mention anything about cooking the chicken. I cooked mine and then added to casserole. Makes a huge amount. Good and simple but needs more flavor - definitely salt and pepper at least.

Sesame Beef

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2002
Absolutely delicious. Fast and easy. Served with rice and steamed veggies. Husband loved it too! Next time, I think I'll double the recipe.

Chicken and Mushroom Saute

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2002
So yummy and easy to make! I used light olive oil in place of the vegetable oil and omitted the butter. Substituted chicken broth for the water and bouillon granules & used 12 oz. fresh mushrooms, sliced, instead of canned. Tossed with spiral pasta. Delicious!

Asian Roll Lettuce Wrap

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2002
After reading other reviews mentioning the turkey was dry, I decided to use half ground turkey and half ground beef. Turned out flavorful and moist. This was a nice change for a meal.

Chicken, Sausage and Zucchini Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2002
Since we don't like Italian sausage, I used country sausage instead. Also used fresh, sliced mushrooms in place of canned and only 1 zucchini instead of 3. Used about 2 1/4 cups of sauce and sprinkled in some oregano. I thought it needed a little more flavor. Very good!

Chicken With Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2002
Very good recipe & easy to make. I tried crimini mushrooms with this and used more than called for. I served it with rice as suggested, but I wasn't impressed. Next time, I'll try it with egg noodles & add something to thicken the broth. I think it'll be better with a more gravy-like consistency.
