Lemon Bars I

Reviewed: May 4, 2001
I've made these lemon bars for family functions and potluck lunches, and everyone loves them! What I like most about this recipe is that it uses about half the amount of butter as most lemon bar recipes. It does have a crunchier base, but that's what I like about it also. It keeps longer than others without getting soggy.

Aunt Janet's Pumpkin Dump Cake

Reviewed: May 4, 2001
This is an easy to make dump cake recipe for people who love pumpkin desserts. However, it is quite spicy, especially for children.

Apple Enchilada Dessert

Reviewed: May 4, 2001
I had a can of apple pie filling in my pantry for a long time and finally used it up in this recipe. It is a good way to use up extra tortillas, and most people would have all the other ingredients handy in their kitchen already. This dessert is so easy to make and surprisingly delicious! The carmel sauce goes so well on vanilla ice cream. This is an excellent dessert to make when you have unexpected company for dinner.

Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 15, 2001
Delicious muffins! I tripled the recipe and made 24 good-size muffins. I agree that the muffins will be even prettier if you have a few extra strawberry pieces to tuck on top of the muffins before baking.

Pumpkin Pie Squares

Reviewed: May 15, 2001
A very delicious pumpkin dessert! It's great for Thanksgiving or other potluck functions because guests can sample a small serving of this along with other desserts. It's also very easy to make.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: May 15, 2001
Very delicious pumpkin cookies! Don't let the seemingly long list of ingredients scare you because these cookies are very easy to make. You can also have lots of fun with the glaze by doing different designs. I've frozen this dough in plastic freezer containers, and the cookies still turn out beautifully.

Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: May 15, 2001
A tasty recipe for salmon. What I love most about this recipe is that you get a lot of delicious flavor without any added fat. I used Mrs. Dash lemon pepper instead of salt and pepper, and it turned out fine. I did need to cook it longer than the recommended amount of time.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: May 21, 2001
A great banana muffin recipe! I doubled the recipe and made 20 generous-size muffins. They were very moist, unlike some others I've made in the past. The topping was very delicious, although it did make the muffins a bit hard to remove out of the pans after baking because some of the brown sugar/butter mixture bubbled over the top. However, the muffins were so wonderful that any mess is well worth it!

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: May 26, 2001
A very delicious spread! It looked more like "mock egg salad" than mock tuna salad, though. It did not taste like tuna to me, but it was very good in its own way. I added finely chopped celery for some crunch and substituted chives for green onions and classic yellow mustard for spicy mustard, and it turned out great. I would definitely make this again, especially when I have a taste for an egg or tuna salad sandwich but do not want to feel guilty afterwards.

Fish Fillets Italiano

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2001
After reading all the raving reviews, I was a little disappointed when I finally tried it out. I used pollock fillets and chopped fresh chives instead of parsley. The flavor was kind of bland and probably could have used some pepper. Also, there was too much liquid in this dish. I may try making this again, with some modifications. I had to admit that this is a very healthy and easy to prepare entree though.

Sesame Thumbprint Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2001
I have not tried using this recipe because I am afraid the cookies will not turn out. I think maybe the cookies were dry and crumbly for one reviewer because there are a couple of ingredients missing. Along with the butter, sugar, extract, and flour, try adding 2 egg yolks. I would also omit the 1/2 tsp salt. Chill dough about an hour. After shaping dough into balls, roll them in egg whites before rolling them in sesame seed. I think this recipe has potentials and would yield great cookies with some adjustments.

Jam Thumbprints

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2001
These cookies are buttery and delicious! I tripled the recipe, and everything turned out fine. When doubling or tripling the recipe, you should be able to save some of the egg whites for another use. I increased the sugar to 1/2 cup. I also omitted the salt, and the cookies tasted fine. To make dough easier to handle, try chilling it for about an hour or more before shaping it into balls. Very impressive-looking cookies!

Hawaiian Bread I

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2001
Oh, the aroma of this bread baking in the machine is absolutely intoxicating! One taste and you will be hooked... I followed the directions exactly (did not add any extra water), and the bread turned out so delicious! It is even better than a well-known national brand. Use the sweet bread cycle if your bread machine has it. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe, Teresa!

Garden Basket Pasta with Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2001
A very delicious pasta dish that is also quite low-fat! Instead of olive oil, I used cooking spray. I cut the salt from 1/2 tsp to 1/4 tsp and used just a pinch of red pepper flakes instead of 1/4 tsp. I omitted the minced carrots, fresh parsley, and fresh basil because I did not have any. I added 2 teaspoons of dried parsley and 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano with the tomatoes. After turning off the heat, I added some fresh snipped chives. I will definitely make this pasta again because it is so healthy and delicious!

Spaghetti With Red Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2001
A very delicious and low-fat pasta dish! Instead of canned tomatoes and tomato sauce, I used 2 cups of chopped fresh tomatoes. I omitted the capers, sugar, and garlic powder and cut down the salt to 1/4 teaspoon. I sauteed the onion and garlic with cooking spray for a couple of minutes before adding the rest of the ingredients. After the sauce is cooked, I added some fresh snipped chives. I will definitely make this pasta dish again because it is so healthy and tasty!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2001
Great muffins, but not to die for. There was definitely enough topping for a double batch. Also, topping tends to get soggy if muffins are not eaten fresh the same day. I followed the advice of a few reviewers and doubled the amount of blueberries. That turned out to be a big mistake. The inside of the muffins turned out to be a big purple mess. I also substituted applesauce for the oil to cut down on fat, and the taste was not compromised. All in all, this is a good recipe for blueberry muffins, and I will use it again.

Apple Pie Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2001
A tasty and healthy quick bread. I made it even more low-fat by using applesauce instead of oil. I also put a little more chopped apples than the recipe called for, and I peeled the apples first. Be sure to use a 9" x 5" pan because anything smaller will create a mess in your oven. I will use this recipe again whenever I have a few extra apples in the refrigerator!

Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2001
Tasty and moist. I made the muffins even more irresistible by topping the batter with a mixture of 1/4 cup of chopped walnuts, 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon before baking. I also increased the amount of chopped apples a bit. I will definitely use this recipe again.

Banana Spice Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2001
This cookie has a nice flavor, but the texture is too much like bread. When I was mixing up the batter, it seemed too runny. I was afraid that the cookies would not turn out, but they did. If you like banana nut bread and want to try something a little different, this will fit the bill.

Snowballs II

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2001
This is a very festive cookie for Christmas. It's a great cookie for people who love nutty cookies or shortbreads. It's almost exactly the same as a Russian tea cake recipe from Betty Crocker's web site. The only variation is 3/4 cup finely chopped nuts instead of 1 cup chopped pecans. Also, the baking instruction was 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Next time I will try 350 degrees for 15 minutes to see if the cookies turn out even better. Also, I made another batch of dough using 3/4 cup toasted coconut instead of chopped nuts to put in the freezer for later use. I think that will yield delicious cookies for coconut fans.
