Spinach and Potato Frittata

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2008
This was my first frittata recipe. I really like the combination of ingredients listed here and thought it was delicious. I followed the recipe exactly but the potatoes were not cooked fully when the rest of the frittata was set. I will make this again but I plan on decreasing the amount of potatoes and increasing the eggs. Also, I might try blanching the potatoes first to make sure they're cooked through.

Kai Kang Dang (Chicken Curry with Coconut Milk)

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2008
I made this last night and it was very good. My husband and I like our food very spicy, so in addition to the red curry paste I added one Fresno chili. I also used 1 can (2 cups total) coconut milk, rather than the 2 1/2 cups called for. It still made a lot of sauce. I changed the veggies to green beans and yellow bell pepper. If you use bell pepper it should go in later than the other veggies or else it will get mushy. I'll definitely make this again - it was just as good as the Thai takeout we get all the time!

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
Very easy to make! And they got raves at the party I went to. I didn't use parchment paper and I didn't have any problems (I have a good double-layer nonstick cookie sheet).

Fettuccine Alfredo V

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
I liked this recipe but my husband said it wasn't cheesy enough. I might try it again with more Parmesan. If you shred your own Parmesan cheese, make sure you do it ahead of time! I thought I could do it while an earlier step was cooking, but this recipe is very quick, so I didn't have time.

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2008
I didn't have any rosemary at home so I stuffed the chicken with a quartered onion and 4 cloves of garlic. I mashed up some butter with dried thyme and spread it on the breast under the skin. Delicious!

Easy Indian-Style Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
It was an easy recipe to make, but I probably won't make it again. The flavor was a little bland. It had some elements that I liked (the coconut milk, the cumin seed) but overall it lacked some kick.

Mom's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2009
Good recipe! I followed the instructions of some of the other reviewers and used 1t each of mustard powder, salt, and pepper. I doubled the cheddar to 2 cups and used a really sharp one. I also used more pasta. The leftovers were delicious and I'll definitely make it again.

Pecan Breaded Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
The recipe says to used chopped pecans, but they need to be very small in order to not fall off while cooking. Instead of chopping, use the food processor or blender to grind them. Otherwise this was a tasty recipe.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I thought this meatloaf came out great! I also spread the ketchup mixture on top (and following the recipe, I had a lot - didn't use it all). I placed a slice of bread in the bottom of the pan to soak up grease. Also, I was short on bread crumbs so I used 1/2 cup bread crumbs and 1/4 cup old-fashioned oats. I also laid 2 strips of bacon down the top. Loved it! Was still tasty as leftovers too.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
This came out perfect! I followed the recipe exactly as written and it made a little more than enough for a frozen deep-dish crust.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2010
This recipe was very good. For more flavor I added thyme and rosemary to the gravy. I didn't use any celery and used some potatoes instead. I mixed the gravy and veggies together before filling and it came out perfect! My husband loved it. Next time I'll probably use a little bit more chicken.

Blueberry Raspberry Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
This was a good recipe - easy to follow and the pie came out great! My berry ratio was a little different since I used what was available: 2 cups of blueberries and 1 each of blackberries and raspberries. Otherwise I followed to the letter. Yummy with vanilla ice cream!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
Good recipe. I followed the previous reviewers' advice and added 1/4 cup extra flour and the cookies came out great. I have made them with 3/4 cup each walnuts and chocolate chips, or walnuts and dried cranberries, and they're both delicious.

Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
This recipe was very easy to make, which was a plus. I skipped the broiling step and didn't miss it at all. Next time I will get an extra can of enchilada sauce to pour over the top, plus add more chili powder and cumin for flavor.

I added walnuts and used butter instead of margarine. This really is the best banana bread recipe--it came out perfect!

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
I didn't follow this recipe closely but just checked it for the oven temp and time. I baked for 1 hour at 450 to get a nice crust on my potatoes, but I think they would have been ready at 45 minutes. I added some quartered button mushrooms for the last 15 minutes, and didn't use onions, sugar, or garlic. The flavor of the veggies is great with just some olive oil, salt, and pepper.

Apple Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
The flavor was great and the pie good lots of compliments at the party I brought it to. I used dark brown sugar and that gave the filling a rich caramel color. The ginger and nutmeg help deepen the flavor and make the pie special. Definitely a keeper.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2011
These came out excellent! I did reduce the white sugar to 1/2 cup. I used this recipe to make thumbprint cookies: make an indentation in the top of the dough ball, then add a spoonful of raspberry or cherry preserves. I got a ton of compliments on these cookies and there were none left by the end of the party!
