Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2003
Excellent! I scaled this down for 3 servings and ended up using 3 eggs as well as 2 cups of bread crumbs. I made my own "italian" version by adding garlic powder, oregano, 2 tbs parmesan, salt, pepper and paprika. I followed some of the reviewer's advice and baked the eggplant for 10 minutes on each side. I recommend everyone do this as the eggplant was just cooked. I also sliced the eggplant to 1/4 inch slices as we don't like them too thin. My husband gave this a 10 out of a 5 :-). For those of you whose eggplant sticks to the pan without oiling your baking sheet, try parchment paper. ITS EXCELLENT! You don't have to use anything to grease your pans and nothing sticks. You can also reuse it. Thanks so much for sharing!

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2003
Very nice soup. One thing I changed in the recipe was the ham bone. I boiled the bone by itself for 1 1/2 hours before adding the rest of the ingredients. It added alot of flavour. Next time I make this I will omit the potatoes and add 1 clove of garlic. Makes LOTS of soup, will probably scale to 1/2 next time.

Becki's Oven Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2002
These are the BEST wings I have ever had in my life! My husband who used to work in a restaurant says they are the best he has ever tasted! I did change two things in the recipe however. Before coating the wings with the sauce I dropped them in boiling water for 10 minutes. I didn't have any onion powder so I substituted garlic powder. Also, I put aluminum foil on the pan before I put the wings in (makes clean up easier).

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
Very good, my husband loved it!! I cut the milk down to 1 cup and used a 9 inch cake pan instead of a pie plate which was perfect. Instead of putting the broccoli in the bottom, I added it into the egg mixture along with 2 1/4 inch slices of chopped up Blackforest ham and I substituted 2 small green onions for the 1 regular onion. I sprinkled half of the cheese in the bottom of the pie crust and stirred the rest into the liquids. I did not find it too wet at all, in fact I found it was very easy to slice and serve. The baking time had to be extended to 45 minutes in my oven.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2002
These were really good! I shaped them into oval buns (like the bakery) and they were perfect for sandwiches. The only thing I changed about this recipe was the size of the rolls. Instead of making 16 which would have been too small for sandwich buns I made 8.

Graham Cracker Crust II

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2005
Great! I used this for cheesecake and didn't prebake it beforehand. I used 1 1/2 cups of graham cracker crumbs. Delish!

Simple Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2003
I made this recipe into a "cream of" cauliflower soup by blending it all after the cauliflower was cooked. Soooooo good! Loved it! Very tasty and so easy to make! Thanks for sharing!

Alternative Baked Salmon

Reviewed: May 9, 2003
WOW! Fantastic recipe! I found the bread crumb mixture was too dry with the 2T of mayo so I added a little more as well as 2 tablespoons of lemon juice as it added just the right flavour to the fish. I also had to bake it for 10 minutes longer than specified. Delicious will definately be my main salmon recipe!

Broccoli Beef II

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2003
This was soooo good! I used a regular onion instead of green onions (didn't have any) and used no yolk egg noodles instead of the linguine. I also added a splash of orange juice to the stir fry. WOW!

Simple Beef Flavored Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2002
Excellent after making a few changes! I like our gravy "browned" as it is in the packets you buy at the store. I put the flour in a hot saucepan and stirred it on medium heat until medium brown (don't burn!). In a seperate sauce pan I heated the butter and sauteed the onions until soft, then added the flour and 2 packets of bouillon. Adding the water slowly and whisking constantly stops it from sticking.

Bran Flakes Muffins with Raisins

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2002
Five star because husband LOVED them. I wasn't too thrilled. It was very salty, next time I might cut the salt in 1/2. For those who don't want whole flakes in their muffins try soaking the flakes in the milk mixture for 10-15 minutes. I did that and there was no sign of the flakes

Sour Cream and Chive Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2004
I have always made our mashed potatoes this way. Sooo good! I use the sour cream occasionally but not all the time. I also add about 1/4-1/2 cup melted butter in which I sautee the green onions in for a few seconds. MMmmmm!

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2002
Excellent! I made a few changes...... One box of jumbo shells made 4 dinners for my husband and I (5 shells each). I used 2 tubs of ricotta, only 2 cloves of garlic, 2 packages of spinach and 2 cans of Bravo sauce which I cooked with the garlic and 2 small onions. I bought 3 tin containers with cardboard lids (you can find them at the grocery or dollar store for a dollar something) and filled the three throwable containers and one regular baking pan with the shells. While our dinner was baking, I covered the rest of the containers with a piece of cardboard tightly and placed it in a freezer bag. After they had cooled, I threw them in the freezer for "TV dinners". Came out perfect!

Beef Parmesan with Garlic Angel Hair Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2003
GREAT!! I dipped the cube steaks in flour then egg and then the breadcrumb mixture so it would stick better. I also cooked the green pepper and onions in the tomato sauce before putting on top of the steaks. I also substituted linguine for the angel hair although I am sure the angel hair would have been just as wonderful! My hubby gives this a 25 out of 5. Thank you for sharing!

Old-Fashioned Scalloped Corn

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2002
VERY GOOD! I made this yesterday for our Thanksgiving (I'm from Canada) dinner. I cut the recipe down a little as we didn't have that big of a group. Instead of creamed corn (I didn't have any) I used canned crisp sweet corn and added half a can of milk to make it "creamed". I used 1 egg, and halved the rest of the recipe. Came out perfect. My husband said it is now his favorite way to eat corn.

Barbecued Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2002
Very good if you want something a little different from the regular pork chops. I added a little more water though, and they came out very moist. I will definately make this one again.

Challah II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2003
The bread was pretty good although my mistake was letting it cook too long. The recipe said to bake for 35-40 minutes and after 25 minutes in my oven it was very well done. Maybe it was my oven? The flavour is very good, although as it is quite rich I would probably only make it once or twice a year.
