Hummus III

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2003
My husband and I are arabic so we eat a lot of hummus and after making this recipe we agreed it is absolutely easier to make it then to get in our car and drive to the restaurant and carry it out. However, we needed to make a couple of minor changes to get to this point. We used 2- 15 1/2 oz cans of garbanzo beans. We thought it was a bit too much tahini so we used slighty under 1/3 cup. We added an extra clove of garlic (at least). We also added red pepper which is a staple ingredient in hummus so I was surprised it was ommited (not a lot- maybe a teaspoon or so). We also agreed with other reviewers that you need some of the chick pea juice to thin it out just a bit. We used 3/4 of a can of juice from one can of the chick peas. My mother in law tells me that if you peel the chick peas (which is supposed to be fast and easy) it will come out better too- I don't think I will do this though because it tasted great just like this. We also used a little more lemon than the recipe called for - it just depends on your taste.

Libby's® Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
Everyone loved it. However, The recipe doesn't give you a real clear idea of how a cheesecake should be made. If you click on "advice" on allrecipes main page and then go to "baking" and then under "articles" click on "sublime cheesecakes" there is so much great information. It tells you never to use cream cheese unless it's at room temp. And when you're done baking the cheesecake turn off the oven and let it sit for an hour in the oven. Some people had problems with cooking times but if you do this your cheesecake will be done just right. Lastly, it tells you how to bake it with a water bath. All of this advice really does lead to a great cheesecake with no cracking for whatever recipe you decide to use.

Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2006
It had a decent lemon flavor but the dijon mustard was so overpowering. I gave it an extra star because it was so easy but I won't be making this again. thanks anyway!

Baked Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2003
This was a very good recipe for baked corn. However, we used 1/2 the butter and it still turned out great. We also used lowfat sour cream and could not taste the difference. We will definitely make it again. Doubles great. Cook for about 50=60 minutes but DO NOT use a foil pan. takes way too long to cook.

Baked Corn I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
Same recipe as "baked corn" from this site but it takes into account the different size box of corn muffin mix. We love it and have received sooo many requests for the recipe- we ALWAYS use 1/2 the butter and lite sour cream. When you double the recipe cook for about 50-60 minutes. DO NOT use a foil pan. it will take so long to cook.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
everyone loved it. used a costco chicken shredded (about 4 cups- no wings or legs). too much chicken. next time stick to 3 cups. used about 1/4 of the jalapenos and perfect (served rest on side). served w/ crushed tortilla chips too- so yummy. left cheese on side and sour cream (added lots of sour cream to kids bowls to cool down the kick). cooked on stove brought to a boil then put it in slow cooker on low for an hour and then kept it warm so it was ready when we got home. i pureed 1 of the cans of navy beans but i bet 1 1/2 would be better- also used the blender/puree thing in the entire crock pot to make a tiny bit thicker. depends on your preference. served w/ bread and hot dogs. yummy. enough for 6 adults or 4-5 adults and a few kids.

Mad Hatter Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
you definitely do not need all that butter. I used 1/2 and probably could have cut down more (don't need any butter for the nuts but not sure about the noodles. next time I might do them separate to save on calories). I used evoo in dressing and also used 1/2 of that. I don't think you need that much sugar either. I would even add more broccoli next time - cut it up really small. it was yummy. used oriental raman noodles and it was good- chicken would be good too I think. thanks!

Baked Dijon Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2005
5 stars because I had everything on hand and it was really quick and easy. Double the mustard sauce (you can use regular milk too) and the parm/bread crumbs. I always go overboard on the breading and putting exta sauce on my chicken but my hubby doesn't like it with too much breading.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
Unbelievably good! Way better than store bought. Great consistency- actually stayed in pie shapes when cut! I think next time I will only put the crust on top though to save on fat. I used skim milk w/ no problem and used heaping measurements of veggies. YUMMY! My family of 4 finished a whole pie. Also, I didn't have to simmer for very long (4 minutes max). I didn't know how long to do it for but it was like a gravy so I stopped. thank you!!! 2nd time- changed servings to 12 and used a 9X11 and thawed frozen pie crusts. i think there was too much pie crust because it was a thin layer of mixture. I like it in the round pie better. Not sure what crust I used before but I would try a refrigerated roll dough next. I will also add a little extra liquid I think. And cut the pepper out or use a lot less than called for. use 3 large or 4 normal chicken breasts.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
yummy. only had almonds and pecans so used 3/4 cup of each. husband thought needed tiny more sweetness but I disagree. baked for 50 minutes at 250 degrees and crisped up nicely after it was out of the oven. I might experiment with applesauce instead of oil next time but for now it's delicious! 2nd time-substitued 1/2 oil for applesauce- could even do more! used walnuts, pecans, sunflower seeds and almonds. sprinkled flax seed(ground) on top. delicious. oh and use old fashioned oats!

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2003
This was a very easy and delicious recipe. I used all of the oil but next time I will cut it in half. I also used light soy sauce which tasted fine. It was cold out tonite so I broiled the fish in the oven for about 12 minutes and it came out delicious. I marinated it for 3 hours but next time I will do it overnight or for at least the entire day.

Chicken Scampi II

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
Yummy! I doubled the lemon juice which was terrific. I halved the butter and oil but I would have liked more sauce so next time maybe i'll add some chicken broth to the sauce. I used 4 large garlic cloves and it was garlicy but good. I also cut the chicken in chunks to get more surface area to soak up the sauce. I served it over whole wheat pasta with real parmesan cheese. I will use this recipe again for chicken or for shrimp. OKAY- I made this again adding 1/2 can of chicken broth after I sauteed the chicken. Definitely gave it more sauce but not as good. Maybe I'll try to use 1/4 can next time. Also, use fresh garlic and not the stuff in the jar like I did the second time. OK 3rd time- awesome! forgot the oil by mistake and used 3/4 stick of butter. used 3 1/2 very large garlic cloves. added about 1/4-1/2 cup cooking white wine, doubled lemon juice too. served over thin spaghetti. it was great.

Shrimp Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
everyone loved it! I skipped the regular onion. used a whole bag of shrimp. added carrots, broccoli and frozen peas (boiled for a couple minutes and then stir fried). skipped bean sprouts but would love that addition. Also for sure do egg separate so you can see actual egg. easy and quick and yummy! 2nd time used asparagus, snow peas, peas, carrots, broccoli and eggs separate- so much more authentic. used tofu = next time marinate for 10 minutes in soy sauce, red pepper flakes and rice wine vinegar then add with shrimp.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
awesome! LOVED the pecans. I used 2 romaine heads and doubled the dressing but didn't use it all. I only used 2 pears- 3 would have been way too many. So good. I served the blue cheese on the side and gave the option of feta as well. thanks!

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
we all loved it. used whole raw almonds and chopped up- the extra big crunch was yummy. added blue cheese and used a 10 ounce bag of baby spinach. I don't think you need all that dressing and definitely not all that oil (next time I will use half of the oil and try using half of the sugar). yummy, thanks.

I used 3 small potatoes but next time I'll definitely use 4 small or medium. I made my own broth w/ a cup of water and beef bouillon cube. Diced the potatoes in little squares and served w/ sunny side up eggs. Very Yummy!

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2006
My hubby and I loved it. I just don't think you need as much oil (I used EVOO). Also, used some parmesan cheese, garlic powder and red cayenne pepper. Didn't have potato flakes. I will make again. Served w/ Honey Mustard Dressing from this site which is awesome by the way!
