Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2002
Absolutely wonderful! The recipe didn't mention it, but I decided to cover the pan with foil to help keep the chicken tender. And I used lite soy sauce too. I think I may decided to line the pan with foil too the next time I make it--otherwise, you have a sticky, black mess. Delicious flavor, and the chicken was so tender. Will definitely make again.

Buttery Cooked Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2003
I steamed the carrots instead of boiling them to keep more of the flavor and nutrients. I don't like my vegetables really sweet, so I used about 1 1/2 tbsp butter and 3 tbsp brown sugar. It was just enough to make them slightly sweet without hiding the natural good flavor.

Dump Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2003
Dump cake doesn't sound good, but it is! It took me like 5 minutes to put together, and it was so yummy! I let it sit for about 30 minutes before we tried it, and it was great. Reminded me of a fruit crisp. It's good cold, but I like it best warm with some vanilla ice cream.

White Chili I

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2002
This was so easy and quick to make! I did make a few changes though: it was a little bland, so I added a few more dashes of each spice, used fresh cilantro, 2 cans of great northern beans, and added a bit of flour to thicken. Simmered 5-10 minutes longer than recipe stated. The grocery store didn't have monterey jack cheese, so we used colby jack instead. Served with cornbread. My husband said, 'mmmmmm,' after every bite. Next time, I'll make a double batch so there are more leftovers! Thanks for a fabulous recipe!

Oven Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2003
These were pretty good. After seeing other reviews mentioning burning, I set my oven at 425 instead of 450. Used olive oil instead of veg. oil and added a bit more cayenne & some garlic salt. Pretty tasty. Thanks for the recipe!

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.

Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2002
I didn't have chile paste, so I threw in some red pepper. I tripled the sauce recipe because I added baby corn, green bell pepper, and thinly sliced carrots and it wouldn't have been enough once I added the chicken. The sauce got really thick though & had to add some water to thin it down a bit. You may have to adjust this one to your own taste. It's good, but I needed to play around with it.

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.

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2002
Absolutely wonderful! And I'm not a big fan of sour cream or mayonnaise, but this is great! I just couldn't find leek soup mix, so I used a packet of Knorr's veg. mix & added about 1/3 of an onion soup mix packet. Used the whole box of spinach & served with pumpernickel.

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2003
I'm rating this 5 stars because the corn & bean mixture was great--that is, after I spiced it up a bit. Added a 4 oz can diced chiles, a bit more cumin, 3 cloves of garlic, chili powder, & some chopped onions. I tried to spice up the chicken, but it was still a little blah. Next time, I think I'll make margarita grilled chicken & serve with the beans & corn mixture from this recipe as a side dish.

Groovie Smoothie

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2003
This is better with only 1 banana, fresh strawberries, vanilla soy milk, and some crushed ice. Makes a great quick breakfast!

Beefy Lentil Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2003
A great & easy recipe. I did take another reviewer's advice & added a bit more flavor by adding cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Thought it still needed more & added a few dashes of hot sauce. I used about 8 oz. fresh mushrooms instead of canned & 1/2 ground beef & 1/2 ground turkey.

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.

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.

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.

Grandma's Five Cup Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2003
This reminds me so much of my Grandma and sleeping over at her house with my cousin. She always had these ingredients on hand for us because it's so easy for anyone to make. The only difference is that our recipe calls for 1 cup or 8 oz of each: 1 cup marshmallows, 1 cup coconut, 8 oz sour cream, 8 oz mandarin oranges, 8 oz crushed pineapple. Of course, I think the oranges & pineapple may just come in 11 oz cans, but we never cared since we both love pineapple & oranges.

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!

Hobo Dinner

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2004
I am only rating this a 5 because of the changes I made as per other people. I wanted to use onion soup mix in the hamburger, but I didn't have any. So I settled for mixing in Worcestershire sauce, some onion powder, fresh ground pepper, garlic powder, and season salt. Other changes: Used a yellow onion, baby carrots, and added 3-4 cloves of fresh minced garlic. Then I gently poured a cup of beef broth over all and sprinkled with fresh ground pepper and coarse salt. This got very good and flavorful, and the meat was nice and moist from the broth.

Garlic Croutons

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2004
I'm rating this five stars, but only if you make this change: Instead of using a clove of garlic, use garlic salt and Italian seasoning. I tried it first using the clove, but it burns easily and tastes bitter. When olive oil is warm but not hot, sprinkle in garlic salt and Italian seasoning to taste. Try on the tip of your finger; add more if necessary. Then follow the the instructions for mixing and baking. The croutons are much better this way!

Chicken Pasta I

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2003
Very simple and delicious. I too used olive oil to grease my pan. I did add 1 clove of garlic to the chicken while it was cooking. Next time, I may use 2. I also used 2 cans of diced tomatoes, more mushrooms, and some matchstick slivers of squash and zucchini. I think that 2 tbsp of Italian seasoning was too much, and when I make this again, I will use 2 cans of tomatoes with Italian seasoning instead.
