Pumpkin Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2002
My husband really liked this..he requested more as soon as the loaf was done...it was very moist but a bit heavy...next time I will make two smaller loaves instead of one huge one! Also tried the recipe substituting half of the white flour with whole wheat flour, eggbeaters instead of eggs and lowfat creamcheese, it was still yummy!

Broccoli and Carrot Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2002
I added fresh spinach and some sliced zucchini, used low fat versions of cottage cheese and parmesian and the skim mozeralla and let me tell you that between my bf, my 18 mo. old and myself there is just one little piece leftover for tomorrow's lunch! Will make again and possibly add chicken.

Classy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2002
Easy dish and always a hit. Took the advice of another reader and soaked the tomatoes in water. I've added bell peppers or broccoli, lots of mushrooms and have experimented with other veggie combos. Served this over asparagus-zuchinni rice from this website and was definitely a memorable meal that has been requested more than once.

Slow Cooker Pozole

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
This was a homerun recipe! Substituted a can of red enchilada sauce for the dried chile/broth combo. Added a small can of salsa verde instead of the chopped chiles. I used all drumsticks (about 5 or 6) and I put them in frozen. Cooked it on 6 hours high and the meat fell right off the bone.

Asian Chicken Salad

made this for a barbeque and it was a hit...I added chinese cabbage, the ready made chow mein noodles...mandarin orange slices and almonds. The dressing brought it all together nicely. Will definitely make again.

Slow Cooker BBQ Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
I used the thick, boneless pork chops from Costco and a really yummy hawaiian bbq sauce. I thought the other reviews saying the meat was tender but dry sounded funny, because doesn't that sound contradicting? But strangely, mine came out just like that! The meat was tender, easily shredded with a fork but dry. Hmmmm... My hungry marine loved it, I made pull porked sandwiches and he went back for seconds and thirds. I didn't care for it too much.

Sean's Mommy's Roasted Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
Thank you Sean's Mommy!! I only used turnips, sweet potatoes, celery, baby carrots and onions. My son and I never had turnips before and I wanted my first experiment with them to be a good one! This recipe did the trick! I added a small dash of balsamic in the "coat". We both had doubles and it's always a success when he doesn't choose to drown his food in either ketchup or ranch.

Albondigas Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2002
Used ground turkey instead of beef and pork, brown instead of white rice, added potatoes and corn, substituted masa harina instead of cornmeal and used cilantro instead of basil. Also took the advice of other readers and used half beef broth and half chicken broth. Would rate this a 4 1/2 and only because I think I put too much rice in it and next time would add celery. Will definitely be making again! Thanks Kathy!

Fiesta Shrimp Appetizers

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2002
Wasn't that great...I used smaller shrimp *maybe the cocktail size and it was just ok, I did use the leftovers for making shrimp enchiladas which turned out excellent!

Olive Oil Roasted Eggplant with Lemon

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
This was great, I used Pam spray instead of the olive oil and Mrs. Dash instead of salt and pepper. Even my picky 10 yr old ate it and liked it.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
This was super simple and soooo tasty!! Cooked it tonight for the first time. Omitted the flour per the popular/helpful reviews, chopped up mushrooms with my SLAPCHOP! lol (I always wanted to use that in a sentence) and served it up with some broccoli and corn on the cob and a side salad. Recipes like this make eating healthy fun and easy!

Pineapple Upside-down Cake Martinis

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
This drink is the bomb.com!! LOL I took another reviewer's suggestion and added a splash of cranberry juice to cut the too sweet flavor. I make sure to always keep the ingredients for this drink on hand!

Alaskan Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2002
It looked great and smelled great but it was kinda bland..I did sautee the celery, peppers, and onions in butter before adding the broth. What really helped alot was adding dry red chili pepper flakes. I would make it again.

BLT Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
This salad is amazing!! I made it for the first time about 3 weeks ago and I have made it 5x since then. Everytime I make it, I get recipe requests. I use the grape tomatoes sliced in half or quartered. But other than that stick to the recipe word for word!
