Fluffy French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
French toast came out ok, but I felt I was missing the fluffy part, maybe because I used brown bread instead of white bread. I wanted to like it but felt it came out dry or too doughy if I soaked the bread in longer. Will continue to look for a french toast recipe that'll give me that fluffy taste.

Grilled Delmonico Steaks

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2009
Good recipe but I followed the advice of other reviewers and did not add the salt content and was very happy I didn't as it was salty enough. Any more salt, and I'd feel my ankles swell. LEAVE OUT THE SALT! Bon appetite!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
My family absolutely loved this even when I was indifferent. Came out really moist and with a lot of corn flavor. It was easy to make so I can't complain. Recommended for those who love corn! I might try to reduce the amount of liquid so it comes out like a cornbread rather than a casserole. Bon appetite!

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
The great thing about this recipe is that it is so versatile and you can add and omit anything that you want! I decided to take out the sunflower seeds and add more pecans, almonds and rolled oats. I didn't want to add any maple syrup and instead added more honey and it tasted great. I preferred to bake it longer on each side, about 12 minutes, so the nuts were toasted a little bit. I added cranberries in the beginning with the rest of the dry ingredients and it turned out fine. Instead of having to mix in the middle of the baking time, I took a pan out of the oven, placed parchment paper on top, then placed a cookie pan on top and flipped the whole thing so the granola was flipped and I wouldn't have to stir - it worked out great but make sure you have a good grip of both pans or else granola goes flying! Have fun with this recipe and remember, you can't go wrong with the ingredients!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
Great recipe! I didn't have sherry but it tasted great without it. Other than that, I didn't change anything about the recipe. Some things I did to help make it easier was to just take an onion and cut it into thin slices using a mandolin and threw them on the skillet with some olive oil while I formed the steak servings. Served this with some baked potatoes and it was wonderful. Bon appetite!

Spinach and Potato Frittata

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I think many adjustments had to be made. First, 6 potatoes are just too many, even if they are small. I think if you're cutting/slicing the potatoes and you reach 2 cups, that should suffice. Also, just putting the potatoes on the stove for 10 minutes covered just makes them burn. If anything, add a 1/4 to 1/2 cup a water. I also added basil and paprika as this recipe is quite bland. I would add much more spinach and garlic. Also, I had to finish this in the broiler for 5 minutes as the top was not cooked through. Also sprinkled some parmesan cheese on top for extra flavor. It's good basic recipe but needs much tweaking and can be good for all sorts of veggies. Bon appetite!

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
Great recipe but I would make a few adjustments: 1. I did what other reviewers recommended and ground cashews with some of the sauce and added that in to thicken the sauce up rather than using cornstarch or flour. 2. Added 2 tsp of coriander. 3. Added green and red peppers to give it some veg. 4. If you have time, do try and blend the sauce so it's smooth before adding the chicken. Bon appetite! Bon appetite!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Great recipe! I add more garlic, cilantro and lime juice than the recipe calls for. I also add a bit of cayenne on top along with the paprika. When I mash the avocado I leave it a little chunky as well. Bon appetite!

Best No-Bake Cheesecake

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
Cheesecake didn't set at all and wasn't even close to what cheesecake tastes like. Will continue to search for a better and lower fat no-bake cheesecake.

Garlic Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
I found this to be quite bland - I used italian style shake and bake crumbs along with kellogs bread crumbs. I also added an extra 2 tsp of garlic, some cumin, a tsp of chili powder and an extra tsp of pepper and it was still only ok. Next time, I'm going to add cayenne, another tsp of chili powder and an extra tsp of salt. This is a good recipe to start with.

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
I used Splenda instead of sugar and cut it down to 2 cups. I added all of the spices as dictated by the recipe plus the extra allspice and nutmeg and it was amazing. I didn't add the pepper as I wasn't too keen on it since it was my first time making it. I also used fat free skim milk powder and it worked out great. I didn't have a coffee grinder so I used my magic bullet and it grinded well enough. The only issue I have is that the tea floats around - next time I will mix everything but have tea bags instead. Enjoy!

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
It's a little on the salty side. I would recommend cutting out the salt since the chicken broth is salty enough already. Great taste! To make things easier, just use a mandolin to slice the onions.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
Great starter recipe but definitely needs some tweaking to make the taste pop. I would definitely up the dijon to 5 tablespoons and use this honey mustard sauce to marinate the salmon for at least 30 min to an hour. Instead of dry bread crumbs, try using shake and bake flavors. I like the cajun mix but use whatever suits your tastebuds. I would definitely use more parsley and finely diced. Pecans are terrific and you should not skip out on it since it adds a great nutty flavor. Make these changes and you'll definitely increase the flavor.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
It was really cheesy and I would understand why mac and cheese lovers would enjoy this recipe although it was not my cup of tea. I added 1/2 to 3/4 cup of milk as others suggested as it would have been super dry without. I also substituted soy cheese, fat free sour cream and low fat cottage cheese and no one could taste the difference. Bon appetite!

Cranberry-Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I found it extremely difficult to handle - the dough was gummy like and I couldn't even get them to drop into circular shapes! I also found I had to bake an extra minute or 2. The recipe calls for a very full cup and/or more pumpkin and I wouldn't do that - I think it contributed to the gumminess of the dough. I'd stick to just 1 cup of pumpkin. Also, for an extra kick, I added nutmeg and cloves (1/4 tsp of each) to give it that spicier flavor it needed - I found the cookies too bland without it.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Great recipe! I also grilled my chicken on the George Foreman grill but I didn't close the lid on the chicken in first 15 min because I didn't want to dry it out. Chicken came out tender and moist which was great! I also doubled the sauce to dip the chicken in and made cajun potatoes to dip. I wouldn't change a single thing about this recipe except that for the steak sauce, use a good hickory smoked BBQ sauce to give it that extra oomph. Bon appetite!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
Great recipe but turned out a little on the dry side. I would recommend doubling the amount of mushrooms, thyme, bay leaves, balsamic vinegar and broth (and letting it simmer for about 18 min rather than 10 at the end). That way, you can cook up some mashed potatoes and lay a piece of chicken on top and then drizzle the sauce on top on the plate. I would also recommend cutting the garlic into quarters so that more of the flavor is absorbed and can also be eaten with the mushrooms and sauce, otherwise the cloves/chunks are little overwhelming. Great recipes and will definitely make it again.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
This was a great tasting cheesecake but I also think a few changes needed to be made. First, to reduce the fat content, I used low fat philly cream cheese and there is absolutely no difference in taste. Second, add an extra nuttier taste to the crust by brushing it with whipped egg white and baking it in the oven at 375 for 5 min. Last, I added extra cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and vanilla to punch up the taste, especially in the pumpkin layer. I followed the recipe to a tee the first time and found it just a tad bland but after I added an extra pinch of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, it tasted much better. If I could give 4.5 stars, I would've! Bon appetite!

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2008
Had to make some changes to this recipe to jazz it up a bit or else it would've been BORING! I added mushrooms, green peppers and substituted Yves ground round for the ground beef. I also added a tsp or so of oregano. I used whole wheat pasta, which doesn't taste as good as the regular pasta but its a lot healthier, so the trade off is up to you. Either way, this was a good base to a recipe but by itself, it would've been just blah.
