Peanut Butter and Jelly Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2001
I used butter instead of shortening and had to increase the baking time to 15 minutes. They were crispy at first, but after storing them overnight in a sealed container, they were soft and chewy the next day. These cookies make a nice change.

Chili Tuna Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2001
The kids hated it... I liked the flavors of the tuna and chili sauce with the cream cheese, but I didn't like them with tortillas. Using chili sauce with tuna is a good idea for future recipes, though.

Cheesy Catfish

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2001
I also added garlic and cayenne to the dredging mixture, and had to bake the fish for 25-30 minutes. Everyone raved, and it was welcomed as a new catfish recipe for the family!

Grandman Pork Chops and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2001
The pork chops stayed juicy which is a definite plus. I added corn and a Goya seasoning packet to the rice. I spooned enough sauce on the rice instead of transferring it to the skillet, since I read that it could be mushy. Didn't go over well with the boyfriend, but I thought it was good.

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2001
I added more potatoes, so I didn't have to serve it over anything. Delicious all by itself. My boyfriend didn't like the peanut butter, though.

Annemarie's Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2001
The lemon filling was wonderful, but the crust was too dense. Too much butter, I guess. They're edible, but you're gonna need a glass of something to wash down the crust.

Chili Without The Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2001
I was looking for a recipe like this... hate beans, but love the flavor of chili. I added some extras (chili powder, cumin, cayenne, bay leaf, brown sugar) and it made a wonderful base. My boyfriend said that something was lacking though... apparently potatoes aren't enough to make up for beans.

Darbey Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2001
My boyfriend thought it went really well with lasagna. It looks pretty in the pan... unusual. I didn't have any onions on hand, but it tasted fine. I'll add the bacon next time, if I remember!

Stracciatella II

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2001
I couldn't blend the vegetables into the broth, because I didn't have any. I also used shell pasta instead of the rice. This soup was well-seasoned and delicious. Thanks, Doreen.

Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2001
My boyfriend didn't like the apples. I just finished the dish in the skillet... didn't put it in the oven. The sauce is nice, though... goes well with pork chops. Thanks, Marie.

Mushroom Sauce Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2001
My boyfriend is anti-mushroom and onion, so I substituted cream of potato soup and dried minced onions instead and ran the soup mixture through the blender to eliminate the potato chunks. Even though I sliced the potatoes as thinly and evenly as I could, some cooked thoroughly while others weren't quite done. He said it would've been a five if the sauce was more flavorful. I suggest extra seasonings and longer cooking to this great recipe. Thanks for sharing it!

Fava Bean Breakfast Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2005
This is the classic Middle Eastern way to enjoy fava beans. I wouldn't call it a "dip" per se by American standards. I always serve the beans in a bowl with pita bread or lavash (paper thin flat bread) on the side to dip in the liquid. If you don't find fava beans in the supermarket, try a Middle Eastern grocery store. They are also known as "foul mudammas" or "foul" (pronounced like 'fool'.) Yes, the smell during cooking may seem unusual to you at first, but the taste is all its own - and delicious. Thanks, Beverly, for sharing the recipe with everyone!

Aunt Eileen's Stuffed Eggplant

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2006
Thanks, Aunt Eileen! What an incredible vegetarian recipe! Hollow the eggplant halves to leave a very thin layer (1/4 inch) of flesh, so that when it bakes, the remaining flesh is cooked tender and pulls easily away from the skin... I deglazed the pan with some of the vinegar from the capers jar to get the great caramelization from the bottom and added it to the bowl of stuffing... I also substituted Pecorino Romano cheese for the Gruyere (because that's what I had)... I really was surprised at how well it turned out... I will definitely invite guests the next time I make this!

Rainbow Veggie Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2006
Nice vegetarian recipe! I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of the crushed tomatoes and tomato paste. Use any variety of vegetables you have on hand. Everybody agreed that they didn't miss the meat! Thanks, Jen!

Smothered Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
Really great recipe, Brenda! I skipped the water entirely... there was plenty of liquid from the tomatoes and chiles. I also seasoned the ricotta with salt and garlic powder. I added a layer of guacamole after the meat, and made the last layer flour tortillas topped with shredded cheese and cayenne. It really looked pretty when it came out of the oven, and everyone said it tasted great. Thanks again!

Baked Ziti with Turkey Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2006
I loved the pine nuts in the meatballs - I'm adding them to my recipe! I baked the meatballs at 450 (instead of frying)while the ziti cooked. I didn't have enough tomato sauce, so make sure you have plenty before starting. I also didn't have any mozzarella, so I didn't bother to bake the dish -- just combined the ziti, meatballs, sauce and ricotta, then served. It went over really well despite the changes. Thanks!

We Be Jammin' Jamaican Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 14, 2006
What an incredible recipe! I made this for my mom this Mother's Day. She asked for banana bread, and I told her about this new recipe. She had most of the ingredients on hand, so I gave it a try! I had to substitute walnuts for the pecans, and I had to double the brown sugar and butter for the topping to make enough to cover both of the loaves. She was so impressed, as we all were! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2006
Incredibly good! Make it for your guests -- they'll love it! You can leave the butter out completely and still get delicious, moist fish without the extra calories and saturated fat. This is a must-have again and again!

Lentil and Green Collard Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Excellent soup! The only thing I changed was to steam the greens rather than sauteing them in more oil. Definitely try this one... and don't omit the cumin, cinnamon, garlic, or lemon!!!

Cabbage Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
Now that I've had these, I hope I never have to make sloppy joes without the cabbage again! Preshredded cabbage/coleslaw mix still keeps these Sloppy Joes in the convenient go-to recipe category that everyone loves!
