Patti's Mussels a la Mariniere

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
By far the best preparation for mussels that I've ever tried.

Oklahoma Cheese Grits

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2006
Great recipe! This is one where you can cut back on the sodium and calories without really missing them. In keeping with the way I grew up eating grits (as a foil for richer foods) I omitted the seasoned salt and used half the cheese (sharp cheddar instead of processed to keep the flavor) and reduced the butter to 1/4 cup.

Sharon's Scrumptious Souvlaki

Reviewed: May 18, 2005
I haven't tried this w/ lamb, but it is wonderful w/ chicken. I've made it multiple times & have successfully substituted white wine in the marinade when it was all I had on hand. Out of personal preference, I reduce the garlic in the tzatziki sauce.

Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2004
Tastes great. I'm only giving it four stars b/c I had a really difficult time cutting it without bits crumbling off the edges. I used one jar of marshmallow cream (7oz) instead of the full two cups--maybe that's the reason. Still worked for my christmas candy gift boxes though!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2004
This is a go-to potluck recipe for me! I reduce the sugar by half, toast the almonds on a baking sheet instead of sauteeing them in a skillet, and substitute 1/4 c. olive oil for the 1/2 c. vegetable oil.

Easy Lasagna I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2004
I prefer lasagna to taste like more than meat plus cheese. This was reminiscent of hamburger helper.

Pasta e Fagioli II

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2004
Just realized that--oddly enough--there are two pasta e fagioli II recipes on this site. I made THIS one last night. Hubby, who thinks I'm a good cook but rarely comments on particular dishes, RAVED. Substituted hormal black label bacon for the prosciutto and cider vinegar for white. Reduced chicken broth to 4 cups, 2 low sodium, 2 fat free (all I had on hand) and, in order to accomdate that, reduced noodles to 8 oz. Served with freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, which--IMHO--makes an enormous difference and is worth every penny.

Smushed Apples and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2004
Decreased sugar by one half. Inadvertently cooked apples in a skillet instead of a saucepan, meaning I couldn't really cover with a lid while they simmered. As a result, they sort of caramelized, which added an extra, yummy flavor dimension. To soften, I put them in the microwave for 1 min before mashing. I'll probably try to repeat that "mistake."

Baked Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2004
This may be the best "light" quick breads I've tried. I did modify the recipe to make it a little healthier by substituting 1/2 c. whole wheat flour for that portion of the all-purpose, and reducing the brown sugar to 3/4 cup. Added approx. 2 T of chopped walnuts as well. YUM--totally worth your time!

Mom's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2004
This is the closest approximatation of the classic southern biscuit on allrecipes.com. My suggestions for successful baking are to use a soft wheat flour (i.e. White Lily, Red Band), handle the dough minimally, place very close together on the pan and--for heaven's sake--don't try to substitute plain milk for buttermilk. To give the biscuits a "golden brown" appearance, try brushing the tops with milk before baking. Finally, a cold biscuit is a completely difference can of worms: The texture WILL change once these cool, and they are 100X better eaten right after cooking.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2004
Very tasty. I cut back to 3 T. butter and should have reduced even more because it was insanely rich. Used 4 oz plain feta, fresh mushrooms and substituted mozzarella for cheddar. Baked in homemade whole wheat pie crust.

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2004
These are excellent. I substituted 1 T of vegetable oil for 1 T of the applesauce and used 1 1/4 c. of lowfat buttermilk instead of 1 c. nonfat milk. Best if you let them cool completely! Cooked 22 mins in my slow electric oven.

Lemon Macaroon Tartlets

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2004
This was the hit of the shower I threw this past weekend! I made the macaroons a day in advance, substituted lemon curd for the pudding and piped real whipped cream on top with a snipped sandwich bag. Heavenly!

Dip For The Stars

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2004
I made this for a party this past weekend and it was barely touched. I tasted what was left, trying to decide whether to toss or keep, and it tasted WAY too strongly of garlic. Barely any of it was eaten.

Quick and Easy Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2004
absolutely excellent. I doubled the recipe and I used canned creamed corn and v-8. Added a bit of onion and cooked turkey and seasoned with a couple tablespoons leftover NC-style barbecue sauce (i.e. worchestershire sauce, vinegar, cayenne, mustard, lemon juice & catsup).

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2004
I'm not sure how this recipe managed to get such an outstanding rating from so many people. Mine turned out ok... I had to cook them about 12 mins extra and the ones in the center of the pan, while golden brown on top and bottom, were underdone in the center. Taste was decent, but not memorable. The streusel topping was too sweet and overwhelmed the blueberries.

Poppy Seed Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2004
After raving to my mother for a whole year about a poppy seed chicken casserole I had at a party last spring, I found this recipe and insisted we try it. We were disappointed. It was bland and salty--tasted like your ordinary chicken-and-condensed soup casserole. I did substitute buttermilk for a bit of the sour cream b/c I only had about 6 oz--maybe that's where I messed up but somehow I don't think the taste could be affected THAT much by such a small change. A waste of rather-expensive poppy seeds. I'm still hunting for something that tastes like the poppy seed casserole I had last Spring.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2004
Amazing: I doubled the recipe and substituted whole wheat flour for five of the cups needed--dough STILL easy to handle, crust STILL tasted great.

Golden Rum Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2003
I baked this in mini muffin pans for a shower. It got rave reviews, even from those who weren't big rum fans.
