Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
It seemed like the recipe called for an aweful lot of sugar. I used 1 3/4 c instead of 2, not wanting to tweak it too much without trying it first. It was good. The spice amounts seemed way excessive, especially for my young boys. I used the cinnamon and salt as written and cut the rest in 1/2. The result was the perfect amount of spice. I used 1/2 applesauce/1/2 oil. UPDATE: I made this again with the same modifications and a crumb top. Super! Made the crumb top using 2/3 cup packed brown sugar 3/4 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 6 tablespoons butter

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
Not the best ever but good. I would give it 3.5 stars for flavor but I love the moistness of it so leaned to 4 stars. My husband, on the other hand, said it's the best carrot cake he has ever had so there's another reason for 4 stars. I made it exactly as written. I don't care for the texture created by the coconut so I will leave it out next time. Still it seems like something is missing...just can't quite put my finger on it. The frosting is absolutely perfect.

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
I followed some others' advise and added 1 can cream of mushroom soup and 1 cup marsala wine. It made ample sauce and required no thickening. My husband rarely comments about food (unless he dislikes it!) but did 3 times and even said the sauce was incredible! That's a first. The kids gobbled it up, too. I thought it was good but not the best I have ever had. Easy and yummy.

Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2013
This was outstanding. So simple and fast. My husband is just beginning an interest in cooking simple things and said "I could even do that" so maybe he will make it next time. I made it exactly as written except I halved the breasts so they would cook faster. Made it with biscuits (as one other reviewer suggested) and a spinach salad. Fast, easy, delicious dinner for all (adults and 4 yr and 6 yr).

Barbequed Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
Came out wonderful. I've made this twice on two different gas grills and both times it took 25 minutes total to reach medium.

Heavenly Halibut

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
Excellent and so easy. My husband, who rarely has much to say about food, asked that I "keep this recipe, make this again, this is the best halibut you have every made!" Made it exactly as written.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
Fabulous. I don't like lemon pepper so just used salt and garlic powder instead. Only had time to marinate about 1.5 hours. It was delicious.

Blackberry Cobbler II

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
Tasty biscuit topping but the berry part was way too sweet for me. Maybe I just had fabulous berries, but next time I will make this with just 1/2 c sugar in the berries. Also, I cook in cast iron a lot but did NOT like it for this recipe. The left over cobbler was completely ruined with the acidic, metal flavors the next day. Next time I will cook this in glass or ceramic.

Quick Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
Delicious. I was craving chicken piccata and in 30 minutes I was satisfied completely. I used 1/8 cup fresh lemon juice and it was quite "lemony" - 1/4 would be too much for my liking. 4 year old said it was the "best chicken I ever cooked". :-)

Capers and Halibut

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
Fabulous. Absolutely fabulous just as written. 3 and 5 yr old approved, too. This is a gourmet restaurant dish yet so easy. Fantastic with long grain/wild rice.

Easy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
Fabulous. I didn't have curry powder so used curry paste. I cut it back to 1/2 for the sauce so the kids could eat it. About 1/3 would be just right for them (3 and 5 yr old).

Prawn and Pine Nut Risotto

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Well, the rice flavor was great but I wasn't crazy about the flavor combination of the carrots and, especially the black olives. Maybe it would be better with Kalamata olives? I definitely like the idea of spinach and mushroom instead. I agree that a little less butter would probably work fine.

Chicken Francese for One

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
Very good. Yes, the cheese wasn't exactly smooth but it tasted great. Next time I will reduce the butter to 3/4 the recommended.

Turkey Carcass Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
Very good. Made as directed. It does need twice the barley. Next time I think I might try it with mushrooms (sauteed) instead of tomatoes. I like the idea of removing the one processed ingredient and keeping it more in the seasonal vegetable theme.

Easy Paella

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
This is awesome! The rice alone is outrageous! I love rice and could not stop eating it! I used the zest of one lemon instead of two and it was just right. I used mild italian sausage instead of chorizo because that is what I had on hand. I reduced the red pepper to 1/3 tsp and paprika to 1 tsp for the kids' sake (3 & 5 yr old) and it's a good thing I did - the mild sausage was spicy enough for them (though very mild for the parents). Other than that, I used 1 tbsp dried parsley and the rest as directed. Just fabulous!

Gingery Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
Wasn't real crazy about this. Kids tasted it but refused to eat it (3 and 5 yr). I think it has potential if it had more of an asia emphasis - maybe a little sweeter, rice vinegar instead of cider, omit garlic and cumin? Not sure. I will probably try a different recipe altogether next time than trying to modify this.

Chicken Continental

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2011
Just didn't care for this. Not bad, just very plain. Kids ate it ok (3 and 5 yr old) with ketchup.

Oatmeal Gems

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Mine, too, came out as balls. I made the recipe exactly as written. They are not soft and chewy as I was hoping for, more like soft, a litttle fluffy and sort of dry (even though they were baked to just golden brown on the edges and bottom. To it's credit, the plumpled raisins were much better than firm raisins. With all the thousands of cookie recipes out there, I will try a different recipe next time I want cookies.
