Bow-Tie Pasta With Red Pepper Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2003
Easy and good. Portions would be a bit small if this was to serve 6, more like 4 I think. I will add shrimp or chicken to it next time.

Beth's Peach-Nectarine Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2003
This is an excellent recipe once a few adjustments have been made. I used some of the previous suggestions and added a couple of my own. Instead of 3/4 c. white sugar, I used 1/2 c. white and 1/4 c. brown sugar. I added 1 t. vanilla, 1 generous t. cinnamon and 3/4 t. nutmeg. I baked them in mini muffin cups for 13 minutes in the highest oven rack. It made 34 minis. Very moist and very peachy. I only had peaches so I used 3 medium peaches.

Cranberry Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2003
I made this recipe as mini muffins. It makes 32 mini muffins and needs to be baked for 13 minutes. I thought this recipe needed something. For the second batch that I baked, I added a somewhat generous amount of Baker's Sugar (very fine) to the muffin tops before I baked them which helped.

Apple Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2003
I made 42 mini muffins that baked for 13 minutes with this recipe. Following some of the earlier suggestions, I used 1 tsp. baking powder and 1/2 tsp. baking soda in place of the 1 1/4 tsp. baking soda called for. I also added 3/4 tsp. vanilla and a handful of golden raisins (this was a good tip.). Turned out moist and flavorful.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2003
Sorry that I don't agree with most of the earlier reviews. I found these rather dry and not as flavorful as I had expected. I added the cinnamon and walnuts but it still needed more. The second half of the batch I added some more vanilla and sprinkled sugar on top of the muffins before baking which helped. Don't think that I'll make them again.

Rhubarb Bread I

Reviewed: May 16, 2004
Very good, very moist. The suggestions from other reviewers were very helpful. I used 1/4 c. oil, the rest applesauce, 2 c. rhubarb, 1/2 t. cinnamon in the batter, and added a little oats and flour to the topping. The loaf was done in 45 minutes. This one is a keeper.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2004
Really good, quick and easy. I deleted the butter to save calories. Reducing the sauce IS important. The sauce is good with rice as a side dish.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2004
Very good. I used more garlic, about 5 cloves, 2 cans of northern beans and 2 cups of chicken broth. I skipped the cheese to reduce calories. I pureed both cans of beans. I added cilantro and frozen Trader Joe's roasted corn. The corn really pumped it up; it did need 'something more'. This freezes well.

Split Pea Soup Atu

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2004
Really good. I deleted the whole milk to save calories. There was enough liquid without it. I added a slice of ham which made it really meaty though the meat from the ham hocks tasted better. Freezes well.

Cheddar and Bacon Log

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
Very good and easy to make. I read the earlier reviews and increased the Worcestershire, hot pepper sauce, bacon and green onions. I also halved the recipe to make just one log and it turned out fine.

Spicy Pretzels

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2005
Excellent. Based upon the previous reviews, I decreased the lemon pepper to 3/4 t., used chili powder instead of cayenne pepper, used garlic powder instead of garlic salt, added 1 t. onion powder and decreased the oil to 1/2 c. The best tip was bake the pretzels for 15 minutes at 250 degrees.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2005
Good soup. I used a lot of the earlier suggestions. I decreased the olive oil, added more carrots, 4 cloves of garlic, more spinach, chicken stock instead of water, added a potato, pureed 1/2 to 2/3 of the soup, added some parsley and used white basalmic vinegar. Still needed a bit more of something that I can't put my finger on. But it is good and does freeze well.

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2005
Very good, very easy. I boiled the carrots first because I like them more tender. My coating stuck just fine. These are also good at room temperature. Could use a little spicing up but are good as is.

Simple Whole Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2005
I only marinated the chicken about 8 hours but put the rub under the chicken skin along with two of the garlic cloves, sliced. My chicken was 4 3/4 lbs. and took about 10 minutes longer to cook. Very moist. I will probably increase the amount of rub mixture next time.

Chimichurri Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2005
I used a bit less oil than called for in the recipe. This was great. I served it with the Simple Whole Roasted Chicken and it was delicious. A keeper. Fast and easy.

Winter Solstice Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
Very good recipe. I used one sweet potato peeled and one white potato unpeeled, fresh parsley, skim milk and 1 can of chicken broth for some of the water. Next time, I will use less liquid in the cooking and add milk as I puree teh soup to get the consistency I want. Will definitely make again, good flavor.

Stewed Cabbage

Reviewed: May 12, 2005
Plain doesn't mean a recipe can be 4 or 5 stars. This was easy and good.

Chocolate Buttermilk Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2005
Based on the other reviews, I did not make the frosting but did add 1/3 c. chocolate chips. This was good but not great. It needs something. I think that next time I will increase the chocolate chips and use the minis. Also, perhaps 1 t. of cinnamon would perk it up.

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2006
Good warm or cold for sandwiches. I used only 2 slices of bread, sauteed the onions first and added 1/2 - 1 t. chopped garlic. After 40 min. of baking, I put the glaze on and baked for another 20 minutes. This one is a keeper.

Low Carb Cauliflower Leek Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2006
Was okay. It needs something to add a bit more flavor. Will probably serve the rest with crumbled bacon on top.
