Crustless Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
I read several reviews that called this bland, so I made some changes to eliminate that problem. I sauteed my onion first with minced garlic and added some Italian seasoning. I upped the zucchini to 3 1/2 cups and also added a cup of shredded carrots. Because of the extra zucchini, I also added an extra half cup of baking mix. This was very good- my whole family enjoyed it. I will add a little salt next time- maybe one half teaspoon. Thanks for the recipe, Peggy.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
I was concerned when working with the batter that these were going to be dry. I shouldn't have worried- they were one of the most moist and delicious brownies I've ever made. I didn't use any oil- I subbed applesauce instead and I also left out the nuts. I spread the glaze on the warm brownies. These were super! Thanks, Marian!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
These are the best snickerdoodles I've ever had. The only thing I did differently is that I had to stick my dough in the freezer for a little bit to firm it up. It was too soft to roll into balls otherwise. This may have been due to the heat- Iowa summers are HOT! It all worked out in the end. My boys and my nephew all enjoyed them thoroughly. Even the mister ate a bunch- and he doesn't generally like this type of cookie. Thanks for the recipe, Beth- this is a keeper for sure!

Emergency Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
This is a great way to use up buns that might otherwise go to waste! I added Italian seasoning and some parmesan, and they were gone in a flash- my boys loved them. Thanks, Candyland!

Grits With Parmesan and Prosciutto

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2010
I used pancetta instead of prosciutto, because the pancetta was cubed and I was tired and lazy. I also added some fresh basil. This is rich and creamy and outrageously good.

Strawberries with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
It sounds weird but tastes delicious. I make mine without the pepper and add fresh mint instead. So good over vanilla ice cream!

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
This is excellent. I added slightly less lemon juice because I only had the bottled stuff- other than that, I followed exactly. I'll make this again for sure- my whole family enjoyed it. Thanks for the recipe, Marbalet- it's a nice twist on an old favorite!

Ash-e-jow (Iranian/Persian Barley Soup)

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
This is so good. I threw everything but the carrots, sour cream and parsley in the slow-cooker and let it go all day on low. It worked nicely. I shredded the carrots when I got home so they would cook faster. The consistency is great, and the lime is perfect in this. I loved it. The only thing I will do differently in the future is leave out the parsley. Either I'll forget about it altogether, or I'll use some cilantro in its place. I had a little before adding the parsley and a little more after adding it- I prefer it without. Thanks for the recipe, Autumn Leaves- this is a keeper.

Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
I made these because my sister made and loved them, but they didn't do it for me. The cream of chicken was overwhelming. I had to add a lot of hot sauce to mask that flavor. My kids loved them though. Thank you for the recipe, Julie.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
This is a simple way to prepare great sweet tea. I noticed that it stays clear instead of becoming cloudy, which I think must be due to the baking soda. I do find it a little too sweet for my taste, but I just reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup. Thanks for sharing this, cookincode!

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2010
Oh my goodness- this is one fine dish! I made a few changes based on reviews. I didn't mess around with the salt, sugar, corn or water- I used one can of creamed corn instead. That was a good choice. This is delicious. I'm glad it's so rich- that means you only want to eat a tiny portion. Very good recipe- thanks for sharing it, Lee Ann!

Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2010
I've never had Pad Thai before, so I have nothing to compare this to, but this stuff blew my mind. That said, I read a ton of reviews first and made some changes, which I will also make in the future. I didn't use any butter. When I heated the oil for my eggs, I used a little less vegetable oil and added some sesame oil. I made a double batch of this because I had several extras for dinner, and I tripled the sauce because so many on here had mentioned there wasn't enough of it (I subbed out just a little fish oil for soy). I used shrimp, and instead of lemons, I used limes. Also, I used cashews instead of peanuts because it's what I had. I let everyone add their sriracha so they could control the heat. I know that's a lot of changes, but I'm giving this a five anyway because without this recipe, I wouldn't have had a jumping-off point. Shoot, forgot to mention I added shredded carrot and garnished with sesame seeds. Thanks for the recipe, Transmonicon!

Polenta

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2010
I was excited to try this, but mine never did firm up. Next time I make it I will reduce the water to two cups. I was in a hurry when I made this- I wish I'd taken time to read the reviews first.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
I hate to give this such a bad rating, because this is one of my favorite Indian dishes. However, this recipe is missing something vital. I can't put my finger on what that something is, but I'll keep looking for the perfect butter chicken.

Pollo con Nopales (Chicken with Cactus)

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
I slow-cooked my chicken first with the bay leaf so it would just fall apart- no need to shred. Also, I saved about three cups of the broth and I'm glad I did because I liked the extra sauce and it helped to disperse the heat a little. This is pretty dang spicy! My family was so crazy about this. I'd never used tomatillos or nopales before, so it was a lot of fun for me. I think this recipe could easily be adapted for the slow-cooker, and I'm going to try it that way next time. Also, an immersion blender is great for blending this sauce- no mess! Thanks for the great recipe, SB. I will make this again and again!

Waffles I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
I tried this recipe because it can keep in the refrigerator for a week- I didn't know what to expect quality-wise. It's fantastic! I prefer it to my old buttermilk waffle standby. It gets nice and crisp on the outside, but still has a nice, tender crumb. I do double up on the vanilla. This is so nice for the summer, when my kids want something other than boxed cereal and I have the time to prepare something that doesn't take a ton of work. Perfection!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
I love this recipe. It's delicious, but it's also healthy and so easy that my 11 year old son can make it and feel awesome because he cooked supper. That said, we do make some changes to suit our tastes: we cut way back on the mayo and use fresh basil instead of dried if we've got it. We also don't use celery salt. I think next time I make it, I'm going to use pecorino cheese instead of parmesan. One last thing- we always sprinkle the filets lightly with Old Bay or cayenne before we toss them in the oven. If you haven't tried this yet, you really should.

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
I could feel my arteries hardening after the first bite, but the mister totally dug this salad. I don't know if I'll make it again, but thanks for providing a side dish idea that he raved over, Dayna!

Teriyaki Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
On its own, I thought this salmon was fine, but not outstanding. I think it needs honey or brown sugar in the marinade to add a little sweetness. However, I made this last night for supper and used the leftovers in a Caesar salad tonight and it totally knocked my socks off. So I probably wouldn't make this when I'm craving teriyaki, but I might when I'm craving a good salad. Thanks, Jeannette.
