Oven Baked Jambalaya

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
If you like spicy, you'll love the flavor. I added hot sausage as well. Very tasty! Leave plenty of time for prep work and cooking. Rice didn't cook well, even after two hours. Next time, I will try to pre-cook rice using some of the broth from the bake and adding it to the bake in the end. Highly recommend this recipe.

Macaroni and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2008
Very tasty. Instead of milk, I added Fat Free Half and Half - creamier and thicker than milk. I also used shredded vs. sliced cheddar so that I could top the bake with it to make it golden brown (and add a little extra inside for a cheesier flavor). I also topped with sprinkled bread crumbs and paprika.

Pork Tenderloin with Dijon Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I tried this recipe for Christmas dinner and there wasn't a piece of meat left. I used fat free half and half and small red pearl onions since I did not have shallots. I also rubbed the the tenderloin with the dijon mustard and cooked it in a rotisseiri. Fantastic. Would definitely make again.

Baked Stuffed Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
Very good recipe, though I did alter it a bit. I used low fat Ritz crackers (better flavor than soda crackers),lite butter, and did not add bread crumbs but instead added two cans of drained crab meat. I also added some Old Bay seasoning for additional flavor. I doubled the recipe and only 5 were left. Fantastic!

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
I enjoyed this recipe. To cut down on fat and calories, I used a fat free half and half vs. heavy cream. I did use a small amount of cornstarch mixture to add a little thickening to it. I also used a non stick spray when cooking the chicken vs. using oil. This also cut back on fat and calories. The cicken did take longer than 4 min. per side. Delicious!

Home Style Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
The family didn't like this at all. VERY rich and almost pasty without a ton of flavor. Baked mac & cheese is one of their favorites so I guess I'll go back to my original recipe! Thanks anyway.

Filet Mignon with Rich Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Very good! I doubled the recipe, added 2 cloves of fresh garlic and a fully rounded tablespoon of brown sugar and let it reduce. I grilled my seasoned filets separately until internal temp was 160° and made the glaze on the side. Would definitely make it again. Thanks for sharing!

Sweet Potato Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
Very tasty - great warm! I did have to cook it longer as the middle seemed to stay very soft. It is a sweet dish since cooked sweet potatoes are naturally sweet so I would maybe cut down the white sugar a tad next time. Otherwise, I wouldn't make any changes. Delicious!

Tasty Lemonade

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Very tart. I added 4 Splenda to sweeten it a bit more. Kids seemed to like it though!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
Fantastic! My Dad loves spicey and for him to tell me to let him know when I make it again tells you it's good! I did substitute the sausage for hot turkey sausage to cut down on the fat. I also doubled the recipe but instead of full cans of diced tomatoes, I used one 28oz can of crushed tomatoes and drained a 12 oz can of diced tomatoes and added them in. We served it over brown rice. I will DEFINITELY be making this a staple in my house.

New England Clam Chowder II

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
Delicious! More flour needed if you like it thicker. We make our own steamed clams with all the fixins and use the broth from that cook as the base. I also added extra clams, celery and chopped up the leftover chourico and linguica from the cook and added it right in. Hubby said it was good enough to enter into a contest. Thanks for the great recipe!

Kale Krisps

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
Very good use of the kale as it takes out some of the natural bitterness kale has. One tip - rather than shred the kale, roll a few leaves like you would basil and chop thin. Quick and easy. I will definitely make it again.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
This has become a regular in my house. I do cook the chicken longer because unless pounded down, the breasts need more cooking time. Otherwise, I wouldn't change a thing. Just one recommendation - use a really good balsamic vinegar. This is a keeper!

Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
Absolutely delicious. The changes I made are I used half white sugar and half brown sugar. Also, instead of oil, I used 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt and 1/2 cup applesauce, and threw in dried cranberries. VERY moist and perfect right out of the oven. I will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing.

Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Very good! Very quick and easy dish to make. I added peanuts vs. cashews as that's all I had on hand. For leftovers, I served over pasta and it was just as good. Thanks for sharing.

Jack-O-Lantern Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
These became my teenagers new favorite pancake. I took the advice of others and let the batter sit a bit to soften th oatmeal. Otherwise, I didn't change a thing. Delicious!

Pork and Vinegar

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
Just a hint for folks trying this for the first time - please make sure you enjoy the flavor of vinegar as it does alter the flavor of the food. However, if you are unsure, you can always use less than the recipe calls for for the first time. One reviewer used cabbage - thanks for the idea. I may just try it myself!

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: May 31, 2012
I doubled the recipe but because I only had one jalapeno, I added a bit of cayenne for more spice. I did use the tomato sauce and took the recommendation of using coconut milk. The potatoes were still a bit firm but they did finish cooking in the coconut milk. I also added a touch of cumin. It's a cross between indian and thai curry but it's delicious! Will definitely make it again. Next time, will use less potatoes and serve over brown rice. Delish!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
I did a 4 star only because I felt the recipe, which is good!, needed a little something. I referred to other viewers and added a tsp of vanilla and a tsp of cinnamon. Then, added some chocolate chips.Helpful hint: I always mash and free old bananas - 3 to a bag which one bag is good per batch. Once thawed, it creates enough juice to moisten the batter. Will definitely make this again. Thanks!
