Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2002
Interesting combination of flavors- like nothing I had ever had before. Needed something else though... next time perhaps some fresh grated ginger, crushed red pepper flakes, more teriyaki sauce. Nice texture though.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2002
This needed some alteration, but turned out great. And bear in mind it's a lot of work and requires significant chopping. I added green onion and chopped ed pepper, as well as teriyaki sauce. I also added some red pepper flakes for spice. And at the last minute, I added some pineapple and pineapple juice and cashews for a special treat. My boyfriend loved it! It made a lot.

Pumpkin Spice Cookie

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2002
I made this as a cake and baked it for 30 or so minutes at 325, then when cool I added cinnamon walnut cream cheese frosting to make a decadent top to a fat free cake. It was awesome! I recommend this highly- it tasted just like carrot cake with cream cheese frosting!

Curried Chicken and Rice Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2003
This was excellent! I made a few adjustments. I used apricot preserves instead of chutney (what I had on hand), omitted the pepper since I didn't have any, and substituted cucumber for celery (don't like celery). I also used regular salt, added more curry powder for flavor and some cayenne pepper for spice. I also added chopped cashews because the flavors blend well (and I didn't have any pine nuts). Definitely marinate overnight- it makes a difference and marries the flavors well. Thanks!

Maple-Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
This was great! I think it tastes like an expensive restaurant's dressing. It would be great with a goat cheese, walnut, cranberries and mixed green salad. I didn't take out the blender, I just whisked it to combine. I also added a tablespoon or so of mayo to give it gloss.

Banana Frittata

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2002
Interesting. Eggy. Too much oil/butter, though. Overpowering flavor of bananas. Next time I'll add vanilla, less bananas, and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Spicy Smoked Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
This was fantastic! We had a smoked turkey for Thanksgiving, so we had tons of leftovers and were looking for what to do with them. I doubled the recipe, added more garlic, fresh tomatoes, and a red pepper for color, also a bag of frozen mixed veggies and we added the turkey carcass and cooked it with the lid on. Cooked it for an hour or so, then it was even better the next day. Didn't need any salt or pepper. The tomato juice and chicken stock are salty. Wonderful soup, more like a stew!

Raspberry Walnut Baked Brie

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This was quite possibly the most delicious thing that I have ever tasted, and my family at Thanksgiving felt the same. Outrageous!!!

Creamy Garlic Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2002
This was really great but definitely needed some time to sit before serving. I tasted it right after mixing and it tasted like just plain sourcream. 30 minutes later, it was really good. I had added more garlic powder (before it set) and it was great.

Spinach Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
This was very good once I added a lot more seasoning (chili powder, a lot more garlic, onion powder, salt, pepper, cayenne). I also used sweet onion in addition to the green onion (sauteed in evoo instead of butter) and used cottage cheese instead of ricotta b/c it's healthier. I only used 1 cup of jack cheese, on the top, and added salsa to the enchilada sauce for more veggies. I filled 4 whole wheat tortillas (big ones). It was spicy and good!

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I had leftover rotisserie chicken, green beans, and a box of stuffing we didn't use at Thanksgiving so these came together really nicely in this dish. First I sauteed some onions, made the stuffing and added the onions and some dried cranberries. I added half a can of milk to the soup mix (I used cream of mushroom soup, low sodium). I added cheese on top of the soup/chicken/green beans layer and then again on top of the stuffing. I'm not sure it added much flavor but helped the texture and my husband liked it. In the end it was a comforting, delicious dish like my mother never made!

Candied Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2003
This turned out excellent! I made a few adjustments- less breadcrumbs (use 1/2 cup at most), 1/2 tsp pepper (not a whole tsp), add 1 tsp onion powder, no need to add salt to the sauce, and no need to grease the pan. Plus I chopped the onion instead of grating it and it worked just fine. I omitted the pineapple- no need to add sweetness. This is a delicious dinner!

Turkey Lasagna with Butternut Squash, Zucchini, and Spinach

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2011
This was great, and took a lot of work, but could be even better pretty easily. I used bottled sauce. I cooked onions and garlic in a little evoo, then added the turkey, drained a little, added the sauce. Then made the ricotta layer and sliced the veggies. Also used frozen spinach well drained. And I used whole milk ricotta which made it better. Next time I'd use a peeler to get thin slices of zucchini, and season each layer (add s&P and maybe something else). I also mashed the squash which worked nicely. I used regular lasagna noodles and didn't add any water. It was pretty dry, but I like it that way. Will be making this again!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2009
I think this was really good, and I made just a few changes. I only used one can of biscuit dough, reduced fat. 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, low sodium. I used 2 onions because I really like them, one bag frozen mixed veggies, and like 2 cans of chicken broth. I added broth, then chopped onions, then 3 chicken breasts seasoned with S&P, poultry seasoning and paprika, then the veggies and soup and more broth. I cooked it on high for like 4 hours, then added the torn dough, smushed it down and cooked a couple of hours more. Really good, maybe next time I'd add a splash of hot sauce for deeper flavor. I omitted the butter, didn't see why it was necessary. Also lighter my way.

Sweet Potato Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
This was a huge hit at Thanksgiving, with a few adjustments. I made it the week before following the directions exactly and it was waaaaaaay too sweet. Then for Thanksgiving, I more than doubled the amount of sweet potatoes (8 cups, made from 4 giant potatoes mashed) and then it was perfect. I also added a bit of nutmeg and cinnamon which deepen the flavor. My husband loved it.

Baked Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2002
I decreased the amount of butter and cream cheese, increased the amount of milk and added green onions and this was the most creamy, wonderful dish I have ever served. Melts in your mouth. Be sure to use Yukon Gold potatoes- they really make a difference.

Betty's Best Hot Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2008
I modified the recipe and while edible, this was not memorable. It's similar to a paula deen recipe. After people said it was greasy, I just used 1/2 cup of mayo, 1/2 of that low fat and 1/2 full fat. I didn't add salt because it would have been too salty (it could have used a little though). I used walnuts instead of cashews because I had them. I also used 2% cheese mexican blend (what I had on hand). I only used 3/4 c. of celery. I added 1/2 a chopped jalepeno and some hot sauce. It's very easy and does the job, but just wasn't very interesting. And it didn't serve 6, just me and my husband and enough for me to eat cold for lunch the next day.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2003
Very tasty! I modified the recipe- reducing the oil to 1/4 cup (next time I will use a lighter tasting oil like olive rather than vegetable), used only 1/4 c. soy sauce b/c I only have reg. (not reduced sodium), omitted the cilantro because I don't like the taste (although I can see what it would add) and added some lightly steamed broccoli and chopped orange peppers. I also added 1/4 tsp red pepper flakes for zip. And I didn't shred the chicken, I sliced it. It was great after a little while in the fridge (cold) but I bet it will be even better tomorrow! It makes a lot of pasta. And in my experience, order of operations isn't that important, just mix it all up and chill well! I revise what I had said earlier, this was better heated!

Ultimate Twice Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2002
Pretty presentation, but too runny- next time I will use half the sour cream and less pepper.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I thought this was really really tasty. Very moist and had a beefy flavor. I found it a bit too salty, so I'd cut down on the salt next time. I guess the hot sauce adds enough salt. I didn't find this to be spicy at all. I did add a tbsp of tomato paste to the topping, because I though it needed it. I might put even more tomato paste next time, that's a nice complementary flavor. Turkey and quinoa- great idea!!!
