Best Ever Caramel Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2008
This is awesome stuff!! I doubled the flour, lemon juice and cinnamon. Then I drizzled caramel ice cream syrup over the apples, put the topping on and drizzled more caramel over that instead of making the sauce listed in the recipe. This HAS to be served with vanilla ice cream!

Fish Chowder

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
Awesome! Changes I made were omitted mushrooms, 2 celery stalks, 2 flounder filets (will use more next time), 1tsp Old Bay (will use more next time) 1 can of clams & reserved juice which was 1/2C to mix with flour. I added 1/2C chicken broth to clam juice to total 1C to mix with the flour. Instead of evap milk I used 16oz of 2% milk. This was smooth, creamy and rich without having to use heavy cream. The taste was better than most I have had in restaurants and this will definitely be in heavy rotation at our house.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
Excellent! I doubled the sauce using 4TBS flour, 3C beef broth (made from bouillon) and left out the sherry. Such a simple and quick meal with a lot of taste. Will be added to my regular cooking rotation. Served with the classic sides of green beans and homemade mashed potatoes.

Quick and Easy Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2008
What a great recipe! You can build on it and change it so easily based on what you have on hand. I added some small pasta and next time I'll use barley. I used diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning, some additional Italian seasoning and a bay leaf. The Cajun seasoning is a must in this.

Pasta e Fagioli a la Chez Ivano

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
This was a great meal! I scaled it to 10 servings and it made a LOT. I didn't have the separate spices so I used Italian seasoning (1TBS) and I'll use more next time. I also used crushed tomatoes with Italian seasoning in them. I cooked the pasta separate so I can freeze the leftover soup. Served with toasted whole grain bread.

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
Yummy! I used a 15 oz. can of pumpkin instead of 1C listed & cut back sugar to 1.5C but will go with 1C next time because they were plenty sweet. I skipped the topping and they were excellent as is! I will definitely be making these often.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
WOW! I made this today and just finished off my second bowl and it's excellent. My changes: put water and potatoes in crock pot while I sautee onions and celery in butter. Add veggies, diced carrots, ham and seasonings to crock and cook on high for one hour then low about 4 hours. I used 1C milk & 1C lowfat half & half to make the sauce and once thickened added about 1C shredded cheddar jack. Added the sauce to the crock pot and let cook for about 30 minutes. Served with shredded cheese and oyster crackers. At first I thought there was no way we'd be able to eat it all, but it's so good that won't be an issue between the two of us!

Potato Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
These were great! I made a few substitutions due to what I had on hand. Plain bread crumbs, dried minced onion, dried parsley, dash of garlic powder, dash of Old Bay, TBS each of dill pickle juice and lemon juice. Left out celery salt & dill because I didn't have them. This recipe made 6 patties for me and I coated them in plain bread crumbs before browning in olive oil. I finished them off in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Will definitely try them as recipe is stated when I have all the ingredients and will be making again!

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
I needed a quick biscuit for brunch to go with gravy and these turned out great. I left out the cream of tartar, but left everything else the same. Will definitely keep this recipe for a quick breakfast.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
Excellent! I halved the recipe to use up half a can of pumpkin leftover from a pie and it worked perfectly. I left out cloves because I didn't have any and it was still tasty. It was moist with the perfect mix of flavors. Between the 4 of us it was gone quickly.

Tuna Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
Rave reviews from everyone who ate it! I added a dided onion & celery and used 16 oz. of whole wheat pasta. This filled an 8x8 and a 13x9 inch pan! I covered with foil to bake then removed after 30 minutes to let the fried onions brown for about 10 minutes. Next time I'll add some sour cream and maybe more tuna and I'll dice my carrots smaller.

Awesome Chicken and Yellow Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2007
I changed a few things based on previous reviews. I boiled chicken tenders with Adobo seasoning then cooked the yellow rice in the broth while I shredded the chicken tenders. I sauteed onion, celery and bell pepper then mixed it all together with a can of drained Rotel. Put it all into a greased 13x9 and topped with shredded mexican blend cheese. I really think the addition of Rotel makes this dish!

Bodacious Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
Awesome brownie recipe! As others suggested I used an extra 2 TBS of butter and also mixed in some chopped pecans and some leftover caramel swirl chocolate chips. Next time I'll mix in regular chocolate chips! This recipe is definitely a keeper.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
These are great! I left out the red pepper flakes because I didn't have any, but added some Frank's Chile and Lime sauce. I also used burrito sized tortillas and baked them in the oven instaead of in a skillet. I sprayed a pan with Pam, put the filling and cheese on half a tortilla & folded it in half (this recipe made 4 for me), sprayed the tops with Pam and baked at 350 for 10 minutes then broiled the tops until browned. Cooking in the oven helps when you want to have them all done at once instead of one at a tme. I served with homemade guacamole, sour cream and salsa.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
I loved this sauce! It would have been perfect if the cut of pork I used was better, but I'm definitely going to be making this again and trying it with chicken. I made 4 times the amount of sauce called for (left out the oil, didn't need it) and also put sliced up onion on the bottom for the chops to sit on top of. I also drained off the excess liquidy sauce before adding the last half. The sauce was excellent over rice and even my picky "I don't like sweet or tangy sauces" husband said he definitely wants it again!

Priceless Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2005
Rave reviews on this one at my family gathering. The pie shell will be VERY full and I didn't use all of the syrup mixture. It will be very puffy when it bakes and I put a cookie sheet under it when I baked it just in case it overflowed. This will be a staple in my recipe box!

Easy Mashed Potato and Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2004
I made this over the weekend for my vegetarian sister in law and it was great! I used broccoli, onions, zucchini, assorted bell peppers & mushrooms. I also made my own mashed potatoes with red potatoes and it really gave it a great taste. I thought this would be an odd combo and not be that good, but it really was great. I made some and left out the mushrooms for my husband and even he loved them. The roasted veggies alone were really tasty and I hope to find another way to use them.

Chicken, Stuffing and Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2004
YUMMY! I did make a few changes though.. I used two cans of french cut green beans and mixed in crushed up french fried onions. I left out the cheddar cheese, I just don't think it would have been good. I used one 6oz stove top long grain and wild rice and one 6oz chicken flavor low sodium. Before topping it with the stuffing I stirred in some of the chicken broth from the chicken tenders I boiled so the stuffing wouldn't be so dry. After it baked I uncovered it and topped it with more french fried onions & baked for about 5 minutes. Next time I may use 3 can of green beans because the french cut are thin and I felt it needed more. (we prefer the french cut to regular) I didn't use quite all of the stuffing, seems like it would have been too much. Definitely skip the salt and if you can find it use the low sodium soup and stuffing. My husband ate three helpings and he never likes anything! At Thanksgiving I'm making this and leaving out the chicken. I think it will be a nice change to the regular green bean casserole.

Chicken Eileen

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2004
I used stove top long grain and wild rice stuffing mix. I put the stuffing first then topped with cheese and after securing it with toothpicks rolled it in melted butter & seasoned bread crumbs. I think the seasoned crumbs make a big difference and this was a good recipe.

Crisp Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2004
These were certainly crispy! I had exactly 1C of flour left in my kitchen and wanted something sweet, so I tried these. They were good, but seemed to be missing the richness of a cookie that's made with butter. I had never made a cookie with shortening before & I don't know if that had something to do with it. These made about 3 1/2 dz for me and I made them VERY small. I may try butter next time in place of the shortening and see if that helps. Overall, a good cookie. I added chocolate chips and will add nuts next time as well.
