French Toast I

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
For me, it was perfect measurements for 6 slices of french bread. I agree with other reviewer who said to use butter in the pan for flavor. Perfect taste (I omitted cinnamon and nutmeg).

Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
I made a 9x13 dish of boneless skinless breasts. I followed the modifications for the sauce (I too wanted a thicker sauce) by the reviewer named Meredith, except I used only 1/4 c. soy sauce and added 1T sugar to cut the wang from using honey (maybe b/c I used raw honey?). Let the sauce reduce on stovetop while the breasts cook in oven for 15 minutes covered with foil. Remove chicken from oven, mop up any water from the dish, then pour sauce all over chicken and bake uncovered for 20 minutes. Very delicious. If you want an even thicker sauce, reserve half of your sauce rather than pouring over chicken, and continue reducing sauce over stovetop while chicken is baking.

Cashew Chicken with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
Very easy, good taste. I will make again. I did not like the gelatinous texture...next time I will try using 1 T. cornstarch or omit altogether so that I will have a sauce to use over the rice. Fresh ginger really helped give flavor to what otherwise would have just been salty stir fry.

Choc-Oat-PB Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
Imagine a bowl with equal amounts of oatmeal and sugar poured in, and just a tad of peanut butter. That is what this dessert tastes like to me, which shouldn't have been a surprise given the ratio of ingredients called for in this recipe. I even cut the sugar down to 1 cup, but it was still so terribly sweet.

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2010
This was perfect! The recipe on the box of Kellogg's rice crispies calls for 1 extra cup cereal, but the result was too dry. This will be my standard recipe from now on. Just make sure to melt the butter and marshmallows on a semi-low heat.

Three Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2009
Great base recipe, prob. good as is to feed picky people or children. I added my own spices (1 tablespoon of chili powder plus one teaspoon cumin), which hit the spot on this wintry evening. I also pureed the softened vegetables (with the tomatoes). Those changes made the broth sing!

Quick and Easy Pancit

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
This recipe is too dry as is and lacked zing. So I mixed an additional 1/4 c. tamari with about 1 cup broth and 1/3 cup lemon juice. Divide that evenly between the noodles and the veggie-meat mixture. I think those modifications helped greatly.

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
Consistency is great if you like thick pudding. I like to add a little milk to my dish to thin it out. I reduced the sugar to 25% of what recipe calls for. Great base recipe. Easy and simple.

Bread Pudding III

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Simple and delicious, not sickeningly sweet like some other bread pudding recipes. I will make this again and again!

Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
I only had 15 min. to marinade, but used this recipe as a basis. It was a hit! My changes were to add a generous amount of garlic powder, subbed generous amount of onion powder for onion, fresh garlic that I ran through a garlic press, and extra oregano.

Lentil Soup III

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
Very comforting soup, wonderful and simple. My only changes were to saute the onions for a few minutes in EVOO then add garlic and cumin for 2 more minutes. Used the entire can of tomato paste which really helped boost the flavor. Paired with a grilled cheese sandwich, this received lots of raves at dinner tonight!

No Bake Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Excellent consistency but too much sugar. Reducing sugar to 1 c. was still very sweet. Great balance of ingredients otherwise.

Poppy Seed and Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2008
Excellent. I opted to go half whole wheat, half white flour -- based on reviews complaining of dry texture. Buttermilk was used in place of milk and lemon juice. I was low on poppyseeds so used 1/6 cup instead, which I thought was perfect. Keep an eye on your oven, my batch baked in 15 minutes. I was surprised how moist these were. and just the perfect amount of sweetness. These were great with a little pat of butter on top. The recipe is a keeper.

Split Pea Soup with Rosemary

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
Very balanced, even though I omitted the rosemary. I reserved the bacon for garnish but used the rendered fat for sauteeing the veggies. Just before serving, I pureed the soup. Was great with a splash of half and half (although my husband preferred it plain), the crisp bacon as garnish, and a slice of bread. The flavors were just perfect, and not at all too salty.

Chicken Tava from Turkey

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
Quite good but recipe was altered to reduce cooking time. I browned the chicken on the stovetop for a couple of minutes on each side. I also sauteed onions on stovetop to bring out their sweetness. It only took about 30 minutes in a 350 degrees for dish to cook. Good quality tomato paste (i.e., organic) with 1 T. sugar (to cut the acidity) seemed to make what could have been a very bland dish (note the absence of spices) into a very good dish. It's really good but left me wanting something spicy at the end of the meal. I think it would be excellent to serve an Indian rice pudding afterwards.

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
Was short on time and ingredients (no lemons) but nonetheless tasted great! I doubled the vinegar b/c I could only marinate for 15 minutes. I sauteed the onions separately with a little salt and pepper. Then separately, I sauteed garlic for about a minute in some oil, chili powder, and cumin, then threw in the chicken to cook.

Homemade Banana Pudding Pie

Reviewed: May 1, 2007
This is the best homemade pudding my husband and I have ever tasted...but please reduce your sugar...I find 1/2 c. sugar to 2 c. whole milk provides just the perfect backdrop for the eggs and vanilla extract to show off their flavors. Oh my goodness, it is really that good!!! My husband and I also think the dish could use more pudding, so next time we will increase milk to 3 c., and adjust sugar accordingly.

Curried Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2007
Love this recipe. It is a crowd pleaser -- a great intro to the world of curry. My picky 5 yr. old loved it, and my spice loving husband gave it thumbs up as well. Great with steamed rice or couscous, sweet potatoes, and bell peppers or a salad with citrus dressing.
