Homemade Pancake Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
I make this ALL the time. However, I add 2 tsp salt and use half whole wheat flour. I also sometimes add flax seed. I just always keep this stored in my pantry and usually get about 8 to 10 pancakes with every one cup mix.

Thai Peanut Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
This was perfect! I didn't think it was too runny, we used it as dip for chicken satay.

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
I made this with corn tortillas, my kids LOVED it. I froze half of it and it was not as good frozen, the tortillas didn't reheat well. If I had used flour tortillas, maybe it would have frozen better

Cajun Seafood Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
I hate to give this recipe 5 stars when you see how much I modified it, but since it was awesome with the modifications, I KNOW it would be even more awesome as written. I tried to cut the recipe in half, so I used 2 small cans of evaporated milk instead of cream to save on fat/calories (imagine with cream, mmmmm). Also, I tried to just half the pepper measurements, but it was SOOOO hot, so I had to add A LOT of milk with corn starch to cut the heat. I also used all dry spices, I'm sure fresh would taste great, I will have to try this in the summer when my herbs are growing. That is the nice thing about this recipe, you can really modify it for your taste preferences very easily and turn out an awesome meal!

Herbed Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
I followed the recipe except that I substituted flax seed for wheat germ because I didn't have any, and it turned out fine. I pounded my chicken thin so that it would cook quickly and evenly. My kids gobbled it up (although my 4 year old cried when she got a hot pepper on her tounge, and I really only put it in the tiniest pinch).

Cheesy Baked Eggplant

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2010
Even my 2 and 4 year old ate this!! I made some of the common substitutions, frozen spinach for fresh and 1/2 can of diced tomato for the fresh tomato. I also allowed the eggplant to sweat before cooking. Otherwise, I followed the recipe and it was yummy! Adding mushrooms would taste great, too.

Creamy Dill Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
I thought this was a great Dill dip recipe. I might reduce or eliminate the garlic powder next time just due to personal preference.

Oven-Fried Catfish

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
Very easy and tasty. Even my kids liked it. I followed the recipe exactly, although on one piece I sprinkled a little Old Bay on because my husband loves it.

Burmese Chicken Curry (Gaeng Gai Bama)

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
I had to make a LOT of substitutions. I used thinly sliced onions because I didn't have shallots. I used half a can of diced tomatoes because I didn't have fresh. I also used soy sauce because I didn't have fish sauce and I don't care for it. I also excluded the cilantro. Even still, this recipe was very good and I'm sure it would have been even better if I had followed the recipe exactly. I think next time I may add red and green bell peppers, and even some Thai Basil (because I love it).

Pork Chops in Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I just made this and my husband and I were dipping bread in the sauce, it was so yummy! The only addition I made was to add about 1 tbls of balsamic vinegar and I used beef broth because that was all I had. I also put Lawry's on the pork chops and I let it cook at least a half an hour on low. This is a KEEPER!!

New Orleans Barbequed Shrimp

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
I'm giving this 5 stars because, considering how easy it was to make and how simple the ingredients was, it tasted fantastic. I will definitely make this again. The only change I made was to use fresh garlic. Otherwise, I followed the directions exactly. Oh, and my shrimp were done in about 20 minutes.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This turned out AWESOME, my husband, out of the blue, said he thought it was terrific and I should make it again! I pretty much followed the recipe and advice of the original submitter, although I didn't have celery, so I put onion and garlic cloves in the cavity instead. I rubbed with thyme, sage, salt and pepper inside and out. Then I placed the margarine as directed. I didn't baste until I took out of the oven. Also, I cooked the chicken upside down (oops) and it came out fine. It was a 5lb bird and I cooked for 2 hours (which might have been too long, but didn't affect the outcome).

Tarragon Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2009
This turned out great, although the first thing my husband said was "this isn't very healthy". Maybe next time I will try to lighten it up. I halved the recipe, and used cream and milk instead of 1/2 and 1/2 because that was what I had. I did add a little bit of wine, onion salt and garlic powder. The chicken was left over from a roasted chicken that I made from this sight (it was awesome too). I also used more tarragon, but my spices are pretty old so they didn't have much flavor. Overall, a great dish for leftover chicken, quick, easy and tasty.

Ground Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2008
I also followed the suggestions of other reviewers, I cooked the meat with onions and garlic, I substituted about 24oz of commercial spaghetti sauce for the tomato sauce. I didn't have egg noodles, so I broke up 1/2 box of lasagna noodles and that worked fine. My family liked it, although my husband thought it was probably too fattening (I used regular everything). I would make this again if I find myself with extra sour cream and cream cheese again.

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
This tasted awesome. I reduced the recipe, I think by half, and it turned out great. I do think I left it in the blender a little too long because it had a lot of air in it when I went to spread it on my cookies, and that made it difficult to spread nicely. Luckily, it was just 3 year olds decorating gingerbread men. It worked perfectly, and wasn't as running as icing. I would DEFINITELY use this recipe again.

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
Certainly not as good as the full fat version, but very good considering it is low fat. I have made it twice and it turned out perfect both times. The only change I made was to use one whole egg instead of 2 egg whites and I used whole wheat flour because that was all I had. It still turned out perfectly moist with a nice crunchy top. A perfect healthy snack for me and the kids!

Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
I made the marinade when I bought the pork chops on sale and froze the marinade and pork chops in a Ziploc bag. We just defrosted them overnight in the fridge when we were ready to eat them and then I cooked them according to the recipe. I put the marinade in the microwave to a boil instead of on the cooktop though. They turned out fantastic and my husband said to keep this recipe! The only other changes I made was to use fresh lemons and oregano because I had them, but I'm sure I didn't have to. Really, this is a great recipe and reminds me of a Barefoot Contessa Lemon Chicken that I make a lot.
