Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
This was a MESS! I consulted with someone I know that works in an Itailan restaurant, and this is NOT the way you make them! All you need is a few beaten eggs, and some itailan flavored bread crumbs with a little garlic powder mixed in. First dip the mozz. sticks in the egg mixture then the italian bread crumbs, then back in the egg mixture then back in the bread crumb mixture. Make sure they are completely coated. The oil shouldn't be any hotter then 350 degrees, then put the sticks in the oil for just about a minute, just until they float up to the top of the surface, and they're done! You can also use the same procedure with a block of mozz. Just don't cut the block any thicker then 1/4 inch. I hope this helps.

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2004
WOW!! These are AWSOME!! I decided to do something different with the pumpkin seeds this year. I stumbled across this recipe and my kids can't stop eating them!! After looking at the ingredients, I didn't think they would be that great, but I was so wrong!! I soaked them for about an hour in a bowl of water, just to clean them off. Then I just drained them. I also used butter instead of margerine, and I baked them at 350 for a half hour, stirring them only once, and they came out great! They also fill the house with a fantastic aroma! I will be using this recipe for now on!!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2004
This was AWSOME! My kids wouldn't eat it because they just don't like salmon, but when my sister came over, she couldn't stop eating it. She even wanted to take some home to her son!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: May 31, 2004
This recipe was AWSOME! I took the advice of another reviewer and melted the butter and combined it with the brown sugar and cinnamin and brushed it on to the dough, it came out GREAT! I also sifted the flour into the bread machine and the dough came out very silky. At first I saw some reviews about cinnamon rolls III and I tried that recipe first, but it was way too sweet, so I tried this one and it was just what I was looking for. I don't think I have found one that was this close to a cinnabon so I'm going to stay with this one.

Cinnamon Rolls III

Reviewed: May 31, 2004
These were horribly sweet. Even my 10 yr old son told me they were too sweet, and he loves sweets! So for him to say that, and I did agree that they were way too sweet as well. I followed the recipe completely.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: May 24, 2004
The potatoes are AWSOME! I just left out the red crushed pepper, and added some rosemary and granulated garlic instead of fresh, only because it was easier. But they turned out wonderful!

White Bread I

Reviewed: May 24, 2004
This was good, I had to pull out my bread machine which I haven't used in a long time. But it was worth it, my kids already asked me to make it again.

London Broil I

Reviewed: May 24, 2004
This was excellent! I think I will make London Broil this way from now on. I got great compliments! I just added more soy sauce, oil, and garlic for a little more of a kick.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: May 19, 2004
This recipe was GREAT! I made a couple of changes that worked perfect. I added some garlic powder and salt and pepper to the flour and added about a half of a can of chicken broth to the marsala and sherry, then I removed the chicken and added about a tablespoon of wondra flour mix, and whisked it for a few minutes, then added the chicken back to the pan. It thickened the wine sauce, and made a little more. I also think the kind of marsala and sherry you use is VERY important. I used "Florio" sweet marsala wine, and I used "Cribari" california sherry. I went to a liquor store where I know the manager who is VERY knowledgeable about what kinds of wines and liquors to cook with. He sells to many fancy restaurants in the area. He highly recomended both. He was right, because it came out AWSOME! My children ages 10 and 14 don't usually like chicken marsala, but they loved this! I served it with buttered noodles and summer squash. This was a perfect weeknight meal, I will definately be making it again!

Clark's Quiche

Reviewed: May 9, 2004
This recipe was excellent! However, I made some changes to make it quicker. I halved the recipe to make just one quiche. I also microwaved the bacon and instead of using olive oil, I used some of the bacon grease to saute the onions for more flavor, and I didn't have any cheddar cheese, so I used a mexican blend cheese, and it came out AWSOME! Thanks for such a good recipe!!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: May 4, 2004
I followed this recipe to the "T" and I don't see what all the great reviews are about. My kids, ages 10 and 14 didn't like it at all, and asked me not to make it anymore. I ended up giving the whole pot to my sister and her family. I don't know if she liked it though. I don't like to give negative reviews, but this is my honest opintion.

Cinnabutter

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
This was good, I made some changes though. I used white vinegar instead of red, and I omitted the cheddar cheese. I also toasted some almond slivers and added them. This was a great recipe. It gave me another way to get my kids to eat more veggies!

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2004
This was good, but my 10 yr. old son wouldn't eat it. Me and my 14 yr. old daughter LOVED it. The sauce was excellent. HOWEVER, I used a top round roast instead of the tenderloin, and the meat came out kind of tough. So the next time I make this, I am definately going to invest in the tenderloin. I may also try this with a pork tenderloin too. I added mushrooms to the shallots and because I didn't have enough shallots, I used onions too. But the sauce came out excellent anyway. It was the cut of meat that I was disapointed in. If you are thinking of taking the inexpensive way out, you may have the same problem I did. I also did the onions and sauce in the morning and made the meat at dinner time. It was less time consuming. This recipe is actually much easier then it looks. Thanks Christine!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2004
I make this recipe all the time now. My kids LOVE it! I usually add a little garlic powder to it, and it's GREAT! For a REAL quick dinner, I serve it with broccoli salad and rice. My kids who hate fish, love this when I serve it, it's the only way I can get them to eat fish.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Cranberry Chutney I

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2003
This recipe was wonderful with Thanksgiving dinner. I did make some changes that made it even better. I reduced the ving. to 2 tblsp. and added 1/2 cup of light brown sugar. It turned out so good that everyone wanted to take some home, I had to triple the recipe so I had enough to give my relatives with the Thanksgiving left overs. I will be making this a lot!

The Most Delicious Green Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2003
This was GREAT! I made this for Thanksgiving Day. Everyone LOVED it! I had to triple the recipe and give everyone some to take home. I did make some changes that made it a little easier. I microwaved the bacon, saved the drippings and put it in a skillet, then added the onions and 2 tbl. spoons of the cider ving. and sugar, then I sauted them and poured the boiled greenbeans into a caserole dish and poured the bacon drippings mixure over the green beans, then I added walnuts instead of slivered almonds and I cut up the bacon and mixed everything together into the caserole dish and refrigerated it over night, then I baked it on 350 for 30 minutes right before the dinner was served. Everyone loved it so much that they all wanted to take some home. This is definately a keeper!
