Shrimp Primavera

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
I cut the red pepper flakes way back, but we both still thought it was too much. I will make this again, but leave that out, and may very well change my rating then. Didn't have any squash, so left that out. There was plenty of veggies with out that.

Garlic Shrimp Linguine

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2014
We both enjoyed this recipe. I agree--as written there is not enough sauce. I tripled the sauce (but used no where near a pound of pasta for two), which was probably too much. Next time, I'll double, and linguine for two. Following other suggestions, I added broccoli, and my own favorite, sliced mushrooms. Was going to add diced tomatoes, but they seemed too juicy for the recipe. Maybe next time, or perhaps sundried.

Broiled Parmesan-Lemon Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2013
This was excellent! I didn't have celery seed or lemon zest, but otherwise made as written. Will plan farther ahead the next time. It did make a lot of topping though. Plan to try the leftovers on chicken in a few days.

Decadent Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
Tasty, but very difficult to get out of the muffin wrapper. It's been 14 hours, so maybe better when it's truly "the day after"? Made half the recipe to use up leftover pumpkin; made 13 good size muffins. No egg whites, so used two whole eggs

Broccoli Ham Ring

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
good to use up what's in the refrigerator, easy (after all the chopping) and we both enjoyed it. Used chopped onion (to use up leftovers) and subbed mushrooms for broccoli, which we were out of. Good nonetheless

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
not bad, but not a lot of punch. Maybe they would be better with fresh rosemary?

Linguine with Mushrooms & Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
way too much onion! But kind of bland--I added several good shakes of Parmesan, which helped. I don't think we'll make again

Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
Very flavorful. I used boneless, skinless breasts and marinated for a few hours. When done marinating, it looked like all the sauce had been absorbed by the chicken. But when I checked after 15 minutes or so, there was plenty. Took about 30 minutes overall.

Jalapeno-Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I have to say, these are HUGE! I cut it in half, but made four burgers, and they were still big. Followed other's advice about the salt, and left it out completely. Otherwise, exactly as written. Husband didn't care for as much, so the four rating--personally a five.

Quick and Easy Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2007
This was excellent, and even better the next day! I used low sodium, low fat broth for health reasons. It was a little bland; but then I gave just a sprinkle of salt to the top of the pot, and it made all the difference.

Cinnamon and Lime Chicken Fajitas

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2006
We didn't care for this at all. Way too bland. I didn't feel like I could taste the lime at all. And what was the point of the potatotes--they needed something too besides just salt. I was very disappointed.

Strawnana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2006
I used my food processor to chop the strawberries, rather than mashing. Same for the bananas. Quite the timesaver! After reading the comments about the walnuts and orange zest overwhelming the strawberries, I tried it both with and without. Took it to a get together and everyone really enjoyed, but voted in favor of the nuts and orange zest!

Best Yet Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
I added way more than a pinch of all of the spices, but it still seemed bland to me. Don't think I'll make it again.

Congo Bars I

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2005
based on what others said, I cut back the chips to only a 12 oz bag (1 1/2 C) but I still ended up with a thick layer of chips along the bottom of the pan. Baked them for 30 minutes as directed, but the cookies along the edge were so hard I couldn't get them out of the pan! The ones in the center tasted pretty good, so I'll probably make again, just with fewer chips and about 5 minutes less baking time.

Fired Up Southwest Fajitas

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2005
Absolutely great, and I'm not a big beef fan! I couldn't find the McCormick Southwest Marinade, so I substituted Kroger's. Will definitely make again.

Broiled Sweet and Tangy Tilapia

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2005
quick and easy; definite taste of raspberries for such a small "dose". Watch time closely--mine didn't take the full time broiling and would have been very dry if done for the full two minutes the second time over.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2005
very tasty; will definitely make again. It was too cold and snowy to grill outside, so I did it in the oven at 425.

Ham and Cheese Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2004
Yum! technique is a little different--adding the ham on top of the egg mixture; I wasn't paying attention and had to pick the ham and mushrooms off and then add them back. Also used frozen spinach because that was on hand. But it still was great.

Greek Souzoukaklia

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
Interesting texture, but it definitely needs some type of sauce--way too dry for my taste!. We added a little Italian dressing (along with lettuce and tomatoes)and served it in whole wheat pitas.

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
I was disappointed; turned out rather dry (and I turned it down to 375 cause it looked like it was cooking to fast!)Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly; needed more garlic, also salt/pepper as others mentioned.
