Healthy Banana Cookies

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
This received great reviews from the family. This is what I call a dump recipe - the recipe is great as is, but if you have leftovers of stuff you can dump it in here and it is just more greatness. I used apple butter instead of oil, a touch of honey, instant oats instead of rolled and put in a bunch of spices like cinnamon and allspice. I baked them as bars instead of cookies. They were very flavorful and chewy and made a great on the go breakfast!

Black Treacle Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
Loved this recipe. I like cooking but when it comes to baking, I'm a bit hesitant but these were easy. The dough was still sticky when all was mixed so added a bit more flour. When all was baked I thought taste was too subtle and would suggest adding more of all the spices and molasses. Next time I will double the spices and molasses. (By the way I used Briar Rabbit Blackstrap Molasses if anyone is interested.)

Apple Spice Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
Really good! Gentle subdued flavors, a wonderful complement to a stronger main dish. I cooked this exactly as the recipe called for except with extra garlic. A great dish as is but I will definitely experiment with spices! I loved the raisins!

Beer Cooked Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
My family really liked it. I followed the suggestion of putting parsley and oregano in the marinade and cooked onion rings with the mushrooms but otherwise did exactly as the recipe said. The beer was not overpowering (Miller Lite 64) but the kitchen did smell like a brewery :) Good recipe Thanks

Chicken and Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Nice base recipe. I added onions and fresh mushrooms. I also added more garlic and parsley; so I term this a base recipe because its easy to add stuff to it. Not a gourmet recipe but a great use for leftovers!

Creamy Pear Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
I was disappointed with this. It did not have a strong flavor even with all of the extracts. I was hoping for more. Not a bad pie overall though - easy to make and very light, but not a favorite.

Santa Fe Style Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2010
Really good. I baked it instead of grilled (30 minutes at 350 F). I also added some garlic powder. Wonderful over Herb-Butter Pasta!

Baked Tortilla Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
Great! I did it exactly the way the recipe said and they turned out perfectly. The only difference - I used smaller tortillas and olive oil instead of veggie oil. I can't wait to experiment with different seasonings and oils!

Pecan Pie III

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
Great taste and it looked great. But when I cut into it was not set all the way and it was a bit runny; I even added the flour/butter addition sggested by others. It was still great though- esp. for my first time!

Baked Chicken with Peaches

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
Amazing! This is really good and really simple. I made it with canned peaches and little cinnamon in addition to the recipe's spices. Also, I seasoned the chicken with crushed black pepper and garlic powder; I served it with rice.

Thai Chicken Curry in Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
OMG! This was really good. I followed the instructions provided as far as cooking, but I added a bit of coriander, garlic and a whole large can of pineapple along with 1/4 cup of the juice with the cooking chicken and 1/4 cup of juice with the other ingredients. I also cooked lo mein noodles and added those in as well towards the very end. I used 2 tsps. of red curry paste and that was plenty spicy (I think the amount of curry paste should really depend on your personal taste) and used dried cilantro and probably more than the recipe but I like cilantro so... (I didn't really measure it, did it to taste.)

Cold Asparagus with Curry Dip

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
Serves as a good base - but I added a lot of other spices to make it taste better. Granted the curry powder I used wasn't the best or fresh so that might have something to do with it. I added fresh pressed garlic, paprika, salt and pepper. I also might use yogurt instead of mayo, but keep the sour cream.

Simmering Chicken Strawberry Kabobs

Reviewed: May 5, 2009
GOOOOD! Rave reviews. If using wood skewers make sure to soak for a couple of hours. Served with lime rice and veggies with curry dip.

Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
Very good with additions. I added some yogurt to the whipped egg. To the batter I added a bith more cheese some cayenne powder, Italian seasoning, onion powder and rosemary. After I flattened the chicken I cut each (lengthwise) into two pieces, I find that it is easier to cover them this way and eating smaller portions is better for you anyway. I also melted some cheese on top of the chicken while it cooking in the pan. Great recipe and thanks for posting it!

Slow Cooker Chicken Curry with Quinoa

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
Really good. I enjoyed this meal with the additions of carrots instead of celery, cranraisins for color and tartness (put in just a few minutes before serving) and the additional spices of cumin, cinnamon and chili powder that another reviewer recommended. Also, for some texture, I didn't add the apples at the beginning but rather about half way through. I also used yogurt instead of milk. I served it with baked potatoes. The one thing that I don't like is that there seems to be more liquid left over than one may expect - but it still tastes really good and has some really unique and different flavor combos.

Beer Battered Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Really good. Received rave reviews from my parents. I added some salt, pepper, southwest chiptole seasoning and a tad bit of fresh orange juice to the batter. Would be great batter for fresh fish as well. Great recipe!

Chicken Pita and Yogurt Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2009
Pretty good and basic. I added some sour cream and finely chopped onion to the yogurt mixture. I also suggest using only two cloves of garlic, three is a bit overwhelming. After placing the chicken in the baking dish, I added finely shredded cheese and baked the dish until the cheese was melted (about 10-15 minutes)and then put the mixture over the warmed dish. I did not use the beans or the nuts, but instead spread chopped peanuts over the top. Great!

Easy Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
Good, added some garlic, pepper and sea salt. I also added some fresh mushrooms and tomato. I cubed the chicken instead of using large chunks. I don't really like cream of celery so maybe next time I will use another can of mushroom soup.
