French Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2007
Not too bad. The family loved it, but it was a little bit too dense for my taste. Makes great french toast! Update: I must have misread the recipe the first time made this wonderful bread. I've made it several times since I first reviewed it, and it has been perfect every time. I'm changing my rating from 3 stars to 5.

Janet's Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2007
This is the best chicken casserole I've ever tasted. Definitely will do again. The only change I made was using 2 small cans of mushrooms instead of fresh ones and frozen peas and carrots rather than canned. Delicious!

Fabulous Fajitas

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2007
This has become a regular around our house. Fantastic and fast! I do change a few things. 2 green peppers is overkill, so I only use 1. I also double the mushrooms and add sour cream and baby spinach as toppings. Yummy stuff! The italian dressing mix is a great trick!

BBQ Pork for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2007
This recipe works beautifully with a good Carolina barbeque sauce. This site doesn't have a very good authentic recipe for BBQ sauce, so I used my own. A pork shoulder works just fine. Skip the ribs, save some money.

Linguine in Spicy Red Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2007
This is a wonderful recipe, especially to be so easy. Not quite as spicy as I'd hoped for, though. Just a touch more red pepper, maybe. The sauce takes a while to reduce to a less liquid consistency, but I wouldn't drain the tomatoes like some of the other commenters have. It would detract from the flavor too much. Just be patient and cook it down. Also, I don't put the olives in until near the end, just long enough to warm up. I have no idea what's wrong with the negative reviewers. I absolutely love this!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
Great brownies. For higher altitudes, you may want to add a tablespoon or so of flour and increase your baking time a bit. My family loves these, with or without the icing.

Aunt Carol's Spinach and Fish Bake

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
We won't be having this dish again anytime soon. Just a little bland.

Butter Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
Very good. I followed the recipe exactly the first time. Good, but not "meaty" enough. Needs a more substantial bean than butter beans. The second time around I followed the advice of some other commenters and used black beans instead of butter beans. Much, much better. I also added a little bit of cayenne and worchestershire sauce. We do this meal every couple of weeks.

Delicious Chickpea Curry

This is a fantastic curry. I didn't change a thing, and wouldn't want to.

Asparagus Ham Fettuccine

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
I'm not normally a big fan of ham and cheese together, but I had a *lot* of ham left over after Christmas, so I needed a new way to serve it. Ham and cheddar are overpowering for me, normally. But this dish was great! The sage added a bright aftertaste to the ham and cheese that mellowed the flavors considerably. My husband loved it, and my 3 year-old was equally impressed. Definitely will make this one again. I subbed pecans for the walnuts, since I didn't have any. This dish would go well over brown rice as well as pasta.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
This is a fantastic and simple dish. I'll be doing this again--often! I used half-and-half, because that's what I had on hand. It would definitely be a little bit better with heavy cream. It needs the richness.

Green Beans With Walnuts

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
I have no idea how this recipe actually tastes using green beans. I used asparagus instead. I also skipped the parsley, as it was superfluous. Otherwise, I didn't change a thing. It was a big hit with the family at Easter! You can just trim the asparagus or cut it into bite-sized segments, steam the asparagus for 5 minutes to soften, then saute with the rest of the ingredients. I'll be doing this again and again. Even my 3 year old enjoyed it.

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
Not too bad, not too good. Update: I made these buns ahead of time and only tasted one by itself before I made my first comment. After having garden burgers with them, I'm changing my rating from 3 to 4 stars. These are actually great buns! I do think I may have overworked the dough a little, which messes with the texture a bit. Next time I'll set my timer.

Seasoning For Tacos

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
Would have been great with about half the salt. I'll use this again with that adjustment.

Naan

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
A few tips: Leave the garlic out. It makes no sense. Use a pizza stone in a 425 oven, turning once for browning on both sides, and drizzle the butter on after the bread is finished. Also, if you have a tortilla press, use it! Save yourself the trouble of rolling the dough. This bread isn't exactly authentic. As my husband's Indian co-worker says, if it has any flavor, you're not doing it right! This is very good bread, though. I've made it several times using both my pizza stone and my Foreman grill. Use a stone if you have one. You get a better texture this way. This recipe has become my go-to for naan, even though it's not remotely what I expected the first time I made it.

Zucchini Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
Needs a little extra something. I'll take reviewers' advice next time and add some diced red pepper and maybe some bacon. Not a bad way to use up some zucchini.

Chickpea and Pasta Soup

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
Pretty good! The only thing I changed was to add about a 1/2 tablespoon of vinegar. It lacked acidity for me. Taste it before you add the vinegar, since it may be due to the brand of tomatoes I used. Also, if you use dried rosemary (which I did) let it simmer a little longer so the flavor can develop.

Uncooked Banana Pudding

Didn't change a thing except to crush some cookies to go on top. Best banana pudding ever!

Black Beans a la Olla

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
Great recipe. Just the right amount of spice and easy to make. I used a pound of dried beans instead of canned. Just put them in the slow cooker with about 5 cups of water for a few hours before adding the rest of the ingredients. It takes about 8 hours this way. Left out the cilantro because my hubby won't allow it, but I think it would be a wonderful addition if you don't have picky eaters in the house. Added a splash of vinegar toward the end to fix the lack of umph. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe!
