Artichoke Hearts Gratin

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2014
We loved this! I didn't put as much breadcrumbs or cheese as suggested just to try and cut a bit of calories, and it was still fantastic. I did use an Italian blend of cheeses. A real keeper!

Quinoa Pilaf with Shredded Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
Everyone really liked this, including my 11 year old son. It reminded me of chicken and rice soup in its flavor. Didn't have any cocout oil, so I subbed olive oil. I did add a little minced garlic to the veggies after they had cooked a bit, and I added the chicken to the pot with the quinoa. May try adding a little stir-fried veggies after everything cooks. I missed a little crunch and the brighter colors, as the veggies had all cooked down. Thanks for a great recipe with many possibilities!

Squash Medley

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2012
Very, very good! I was concerned that this might be too sweet, but it wasn't. Hubby said, "Don't change a thing!" I did use real bacon bits instead of cooking the bacon, but I still cooked the onion in a little bacon grease. I may try adding chicken or shrimp and mixing in some pasta. I also may kick up the heat a bit, but only because we like it hot. Thanks for a great recipe!

Yummy Veal Meat Loaf

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
Loved this one! Followed the recipe as written - well, except for my mistake! I put the entire 1 cup ketchup in the meat mixture. No harm done. It was still delish, just extra moist. And since I dumped in all the ketchup, I decided to top it with our favorite bar-b-que sauce. Fantastic! Next time, I may cook the onions a bit first, but I can't say the crunch did any harm. And, like other reviewers, I must report that my house smelled amazing! Thanks, Marylou!

Pineapple Cherry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
I made this for a church supper/ice cream party, and it was very good! It is very colorful, and the bites of pineapple are wonderful! I will make again!

Zucchini Cilantro Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
I was browsing allrecipes.com looking for something to do with a bunch of zucchini I had been given when I saw this recipe. I'm so glad I did! This was very good, albeit a bit messy to make. I did add more salt and upped the garlic since we like things with more garlic. I did use a jalapeno. I actually made 2 batchees - one for us and one for the in-laws. Thanks for a great new recipe!

Chicken and Mandarin Oranges

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2007
Wow! What a wonderful, unique taste. Even my kids liked this one. I did use green onions instead of regular onions. I also ended up using more seasoning. Instead of sprinkling it on, I used it more like a rub. Will make again soon! Thanks!

The Perfect Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2006
This has quickly become one of my favorite marinades! I use it most often on shrimp. They are great grilled after a couple of hours marinating in this recipe. I am thinking about adding a little sesame oil to the mix to bring out the sesame flavor. The seeds don't add much flavor. Thanks for a great recipe!

Best Ever Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2004
I've never been very good at making pie crusts, so I switched to store bought some time back. However, I didn't feel like going to the store, so I tried this recipe. Boy, am I glad I did! After making a pumpkin pie with it, my husband complemented the crust! That's never happened before! I did cut back a little on the water. At first, it seemed too sticky, but after it chilled it was great! No more store bought for me. I think this one will even give my husband's grandmother, the family's only "successful" pie crust maker, a run for her money!

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2004
Wow! I usually don't like pumpkin pie, but this was tasty! I decided to try this with the scraps from the kid's Halloween pumpkin carving. Everything I read online said I would be disappointed using a jack-o-lantern pumkin, but not with this recipe! Thus, I used fresh pumpkin, which I steamed and pureed. The only other change I made was using slivered almonds instead of walnumts, only because that's what I had. Thanks Brown Family for giving a new holiday favorite to our family!

Reduced Fat Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2004
This was great! Very filling! I didn't have any of the frozen hash browns, so I just used fresh potatoes, bell pepper, and onion, measuring out the 16 ounces total. It added a little time for chopping, but it worked out great. I did add a little parsley and some pepper and used fat free cheddar and chives since that's what I had. I will make it again soon!

Grilled Salmon with Habanero-Lime Butter

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2003
WONDERFUL!!! My husband, in-laws, and myself loved this dish, and neither my father-in-law nor myself are big fish eaters! I did take the seeds out of the habanero peppers, but I may leave a few in next time. It was not hot for us at all. The flavors blend together great, and there is no "fishy" flavor. I just had to try the butter before dinner, and it's great on melba toast! Will do again soon!

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2002
Great dish! I added mandarin oranges. I also cut back to 1/4 cup vegetable oil and did not add the cilantro. I didn't have any rice vinegar, so I substituted apple cider vinegar. It was delicious!

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2002
Really great taste! I made it with chopped ham instead of ground beef, and it was delicious. I also added cheese, milk, and butter to the mashed potatoes. It's already a family favorite!
