Orange Chocolate Chip Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2012
This is a great recipe. Rather than grate & juice the orange, I wash & quarter a navel orange and toss the whole thing in the food processor (or blender) and puree. I then put it in a measuring cup and add extra OJ to bring it to 1 1/4 cup or so, and proceed with the recipe - except I use 3/4 cup of sugar and 50/50 whole wheat/white flour, both changes I make to all quick bread recipes. The amount of liquid is imprecise (because it depends on the amount of non-liquid in the particular orange) so this requires adjustment after wet & dry ingredients are mixed (and I'll admit, I've had a few wet heavy loaves, but that's rare for me and even they taste great), but if you're comfortable about this, it's easier than grating, gives good flavor, and I've now read adds extra nutritional benefit - though I do it for the first 2 reasons (OK, mostly the 1st).

Clam with Tomato and Rice Soup

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
This is incredibly popular in my house. I made a batch (again) last night and most of it is gone - and there are just 3 of us. Changes I make: 2 instead of one can of clams; 1 15-oz can of diced tomatoes in place of 2 of the cans of tomato sauce; and either I add a bit of crushed red pepper, or one of the cans of tomato sauce I do use is Goya picante (hot) flavored tomato sauce (because practically anything with tomatoes is better with a little pepper, even if it's so little you can't put your finger on what's there). Oh, and I use a 12-oz can condensed milk instead of cream and dried instead of fresh basil (because they're always in my pantry, like all the other ingredients of this soup).

Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomato and Roasted Pepper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I make this with leftover chunked chicken added to the sauce instead of fresh chicken breasts. My family loves this! We've had it with tortellini - cooked in the sauce - or over pasta with Parmesan cheese on top.

Garden Basket Pasta with Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
This was a hit in my house - but made pretty much as directed, 3 of us polished it off (over 9 oz. pasta) and my 14yo nephew was still hungry. If you serve 8 with this, you're not getting enough veggies! I used a 14.5-oz can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh (crop failure in my garden this year :-( ) and no salt. And of course cheese on top! A tablespoon or 2 of tomato paste would have been a nice addition to thicken and for added flavor.
