Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
This was great! I served it with bean soup. I was extremely nervous, because the dough was UNBELIEVABLY liquidly. But it worked out fine.

Cobb Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
It was nice. It was a little odd. I think it was the blue cheese. Next time I would do gongonzola.

Cheese Herb Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
Excellent! I used 2 Tbs of olive oil instead of butter. Tastes more Italian that way.

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
Excellent! I added 2 cloves of garlic and doubled the Marsala wine and the mushrooms. Had to use cornstarch to thicken up the sauce.

Avocado Quick Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
4.5 stars. Did 1 loaf (cutting things in half was irritating because of the irregular amounts- like 1 7/8 of a cup). I did 1 egg and 1 egg white and decresed the sugar to 3/4 of a cup.

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Wonderful, but I modified according to other reviewers. I boiled the chicken in chicken broth for 10 minutes, turned the heat off and let the chicken cook in the broth for another 10 minutes covered. I used 4 chicken breasts but only ended up using 2. The chicken breasts at our store are huge, so I would recommend using 2 breasts (that calculated out to be 1 - 1.25 lbs of chicken.) I omitted the salt, tomato sauce, water, chili powder and green pepper and replaced it with 12 oz of salsa and a 4 oz can of chopped green chilies. I also omitted the taco sauce and used the Red Enchilada Sauce from Allrecipes. I only used 1/2 of the enchilada sauce to cover my enchiladas. I used more cheese on the top (didn't measure). Everyone loved this recipe!

Dark Rye Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2010
Excellent! Definitely do light crust and add more caraway (I did 1.5 tsp). Many others reviewers recommended both of these tips.

Sea Bass with Honeyed Apples

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Great! Do not waste the bread crumbs, it calls for way too much. I poured 2 cups of bread crumbs in the dish and breaded 6 fillets. I less than 1/2 of the bread crumbs.

Rainbow Trout with Yogurt Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
The fish was too plain, even with a lot of lemon pepper. We didn't like the cucumber sauce either. It would have been a lot of better if the fish was breaded with flour or cornflakes. We have much better recipes for cucumber sauce.

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2010
I loved it, but my husband didn't. He said it was bland and needed alot of spice. My 20 month old daughter loved it. The only modifications I made was I did BOCA meatless ground crumbles instead of ground turkey. That made it very easy. It worked out great.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Great Recipe- I did sweat the eggplant but that added a lot of time and work. The proportions seemed to be off. I used one large eggplant. I needed 3 eggs and 1.5 cups of bread crumbs. I baked the eggplant at 450 for 7 minutes on each side. I used two 9x13 pans so I did't have to layer the eggplant. The eggplant was't mushy at all.

Argentine Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
I'm new to lentils. After I made this meal I discovered elsewhere that you are supposed to rinse you lentils before you boil them. So, I would add that to the directions. The stew was pretty good but I think there are modifications that I would make next time to make it an excellent stew. I would replace the apples with potatoes. Other reviewers said the apples made the stew too sweet. I like sweet things, but the apples or the BBQ sauce did make it too sweet. I used original BBQ sauce. I felt kind of like I was eating vegeatables in BBQ sauce, it was too strong. Next time I'll use tomato sauce and add 1/4 tsp of cumin and 1 tsp chili powder. The stew was great with challah bread.

Spinach Whole Wheat Quesadillas

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
This was great! I modified it a little bit. I used frozen spinach. I cooked the spinach in the microwave and then added the chili powder and garlic powder to the spinach. I did decrease the garlic powder to 1/4 tsp. I didn't add the green onion. I followed the rest of the procedure in the frying pan. I served it with sour cream. It would have been great with salsa but I didn't have any salsa in the house.

Simple Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
Excellent! I made some modifications. I used 1 cup white flour and 1 cup of wheat flour. I decreased the sugar to 1/4 cup (more than that would make it too sweet). I didn't use frozen butter, I sliced up a stick of refrigerated margarine. I did 1/4 cup raisins, and 1/4 cup craisins. I didn't realize that I didn't have sour cream, so I used low-fat rasberry yogurt. Next time I might use all wheat flour (no white). I'm not sure why people are using a food processor. Mixing the flour mixture with my hands took at most 45 seconds. Mixing the egg mixture into the flour mixture with a fork took at most 30 seconds. It would take a lot longer to set up the food processor and then have to clean it. Maybe using frozen butter makes it harder to mix. So use refrigerated margarine and don't use the food processor. Also, with refrigerated margarine you don't have to use a box grater. That way you don't have to clean the box grater. (You can probably tell I try to minimize clean up).

Four Cheese Macaroni Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
A number of reviewers said this recipe was to dry. One of the reviewers added more cheese and cream to make this recipe creamy, so I modified it in a similar way. I mixed 1.5 cups of cheddar cheese, 1.5 cups of mozzarella cheese, 1/2 cup of parmasean cheese, and 1/2 cup of feta cheese, and 1/2 cup of milk INTO the macaroni. I didn't use the italian spice (but did do 1 tsp basil, 1 tsp oregano, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper). I don't think putting the tomato mix in the middle instead of mixing it in is a good idea. On the top, I added 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, 1/4 cup parmasean cheese and 1/8 feta cheese. In the end, it was creamy. There was to much feta, would definitley decrease amount (maybe 1/8-1/4 in the macaroni mix). I would increase the milk to 3/4 cups. My kids didn't like tomatoes in their M&C, but husband liked it.

Honey Nut Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
I did some modifications- 1/2 cup white flour + 1/4 cup wheat flour; instead of walnuts, I used crasins; decreased confectioners' sugar to 1/6 cup; and I made a mistake- it says "dates, pitted" and in my mind I read prunes because they are pitted so that is what I put in (don't laugh). These were good. Everbody in the family said that they liked them. However, they didn't ask for a second piece and said that I didn't need to make this recipe again. My husband says they are a little too sweet. The kids wanted chocolate chips in them. Bottom line: Their good and "healthy", but not AMAZING.

Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Great! I made some changes. I didn't sautee the veggies because I used the crockpot. I just dumped everything in the crock pot. I used canned corn. I used 2 cans of diced tomatoes instead of fresh. As directed, I pureed 1.5 cups, but later I ended up pureeing another 2 cups. Without pureeing this is a soup recipe. When you puree, the dish thickens up and becomes chili. Next time I would probably puree at least 4 cups. I cooked it on high for 4.5 hours. This turned out great!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
There were the worst cookies I have ever tasted. It had way to much salt and even too much sugar. I had three trays that went into the oven. I tried to change my technique with each, but they were all bad. The cookie's on the first tray would not stay together even after cooling. After cooking for 13 minutes, I felt like I was eating cookie dough, which I do not like. The second tray I cooked for 15 minutes, the cookies flattened out and did not come of the the tray at all. So the 2 tray ended up with no cookies, just crumbles. The 3rd tray was the same as the first. I would throw them out, but I have to provide a snack for a preschool class and I don't have enough time to make another dessert. Kids usually don't care. But I was disgusted buy the taste. Unfortunately, I didn't read the reviews before making it. Big mistake, it was 4.5 stars so I trusted it.
