Roast Chicken Pita Pockets

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
I was eager to try this recipe but only had a 10-ounce can of chicken in the house. Cut the ingredient portions in half and added to the chicken. Warmed two pitas, lined them with lettuce and added the filling. They were delicious!

Lemon Apricot Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
I can hardly wait for the next potluck so I can bring this cake. It looked beautiful and was absolutely delicious! Could only find guava nectar but was not disappointed at all with the taste. The only problem I encountered was with the glaze--had to increase the amount of lemon juice to create a liquid. Because it makes such a large cake, cut into serving sizes, wrapped in plastic wrap and stored in freezer. Whenever I wanted a piece of cake I microwaved it for 20 seconds and it tasted freshly baked.

Fiesta Turkey Tavern

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
I sampled the mixture just before adding the remaining mustard and jalapenos. Didn't seem at all "hot". Next time I will use 1/4 teaspoon cayenne and 1/4 teaspoon chili powder. However, found the amount of jalapenos too hot--too overpowering, so will cut down to 1/8 cup. Tried the mixture as a burger, in pitas and tortillas. Thought the tortillas were by far the tastiest.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
I shredded my zucchini in the food processor, then following Annabelle's brilliant suggestion, spun it dry using my salad spinner and gave it a final pat dry. The instant mashed potatoes sounded interesting, but I was nervous about the substitution, so I used 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup instant mashed potatoes. Otherwise followed the recipe exactly and cooked them on my electric griddle. They were wonderful! (I even ate one cold the next day, and it was good, too.)

California Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
I slathered the chicken breasts in olive oil then dusted with onion powder, salt and pepper and left overnight in the fridge. When ready to cook I put them on the grill (no added oil or seasonings) and they were seasoned perfectly! Tried sliced tomatoes and diced; found the breast with the diced tomatoes easier to eat. But delicious either way.

Chewy Coconut Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
Maybe I was too swayed by all the ecstatic reviews. My batch was a bit on the flat side, too (cold butter and new baking soda). They were good but not the greatest cookie I've ever had. More of a buttery flavor. Did seem to enjoy them more as the days passed--either they grew on me or improve with age, not sure which. Will try again but go with coconut extract.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
I decided to try this recipe since it had cumin in it--and I like cumin. My rice did not puff either, but I just kept going with the recipe, and the rice did cook perfectly. However, I couldn't taste the cumin and found the dish rather bland. My husband's remedy for any dish not reaching par is to add a big tablespoon of butter. This I did and it helped.

Cream Cheese Won Tons

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
I make a recipe like this called Hawaiian Shrimp Wonton Puffs with a filling that ROCKS! It is 4 oz. of softened cream cheese, 6 oz. of minced shrimp, 1 clove of garlic (minced), 1/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/8 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce and 1/8 teaspoon tabasco.

Lemon-Lime Soda Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
I used one tablespoon of cornstarch. Think the instructions should read to cook over medium heat "until boiling. Boil one minute or until mixture turns from white to opaque." Then when you add your gelatin the mixture will look like a ruby. Also, the mixture needs to cool before you add it to the pie shell. (I used a prepared graham cracker crust.) The mixture cooled in the fridge while I leisurely prepared my strawberries. Delicious.

Italian Veggie Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
When I first read the combination of ingredients I thought "no way". But there were so many highly positive reviews I simply had to try the recipe. I shredded the carrots and used manicotti instead of lasagne noodles--much quicker. Stuffed 8 manicotti and used the remaining filling in an omelet the following morning. Did falter and use a spaghetti sauce with Italian sausage in it. Somehow these ingredients create an absolutely AWESOME dish. Will make again and again!

Amish Hash Browns

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2009
I've tried making these twice--the last time on a griddle at 400 degrees. Enjoy the flavor but no matter how thin I spread them mine come out "doughy".

Bacon Mushroom Swiss Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
This meatloaf was delicious hot/cold, in and out of sandwiches. Reading the reviews I,too,opted to cube the Swiss cheese so it wouldn't get lost. Added 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt. I used my slow cooker to cook this, placing the meatloaf on a trivet to allow the fat to drip to the bottom. My slow cooker runs on the hot side and the meatloaf was done in 5 1/2 hours on Low.
