Stir-Fry Pork with Ginger

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2003
This was very tasty, but I made a few adjustments. First, I doubled everything in the recipe except for the oils. I didn't add any additional salt. I also used 1/2 teaspoon of minced ginger instead of fresh ginger root. Snow peas went well with it.

Talerine

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2004
My family liked this dish and it was pretty simple to make. I cut down on the salt and pepper, added some black olives, and took out the corn. I followed some reviewer's suggestion to cook the noodles separately so as to keep much of the sauce.

Pizza Sauce II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2004
This is pretty good recipe; needing only a few ingredients. I didn't use it for pizza this time, but will try it some day. I used it for the Pizza Casserole recipe here. I cut this recipe in half for it.

Simply Lemon Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2004
It was fairly tender even though I didn't baste as often as I wanted. The taste was pretty good, especially for so few ingredients and without marinating. I will keep this recipe.

Ma Po Tofu

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2003
I like tofu and it was good to find a tasty and relatively easy dish to make. I took the suggestion of one reviewer to use the black bean sauce w/garlic instead of the fermented black beans. That worked well. I also used ground beef instead of ground pork. The first try, I put the chili sauce and no cayenne pepper. The second try, I didn't put any chili sauce nor cayenne pepper because I wanted the kids to give it a try. It is better with the chili sauce but it was still tasty without it.

Chinese Steamed Buns

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2003
It's time consuming but worth it! The buns were moist and light. They were like those you would find in dim sum, except the buns were a lot smaller when made as directed. Each one was about a couple of bites. My family loved it. When steaming, make sure you have enough water to last through the 15 minutes. I will try it with filling next. I'm definitely keeping this recipe :-).

Chinese Chicken and Corn Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2003
This is a very flavorful soup, especially for cold winter days. It is filling for a soup which is a plus. I personally like the proportion of tofu to chicken (I like tofu). I will definitely keep this recipe.

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2003
I didn't put pecans (or any nuts), nor the orange zest. Even so, this is an easy, yet tasty recipe and I have made it several times. One thing is that right after taking it out of the oven, it isn't quite ready, i.e. it doesn't pass the toothpick test. But after cooling, it is done.

Barbeque Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2004
Yummy! I didn't change much, just added another tablespoon of brown sugar and ketchup and held back on the chili powder. I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and removed as much fat as possible. It was very tender and tasty. The sauce is runny, but that keeps the chicken from getting dry.

Soft Christmas Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2003
I followed several suggestions in the reviews here: 3 cups of flour, 350 degrees for about 8-10 min., and butter instead of margarine. Personally, I don't like it too sweet, so I also only used 1 cup of sugar. The first time I tried it without any adjustments and the dough came out super sticky even after an overnight refrigeration (I had to throw some of it away). I wasn't sure if it was because of the ingredients or whether I used a mixer to beat in the flour. Second try, I made the adjustments and I didn't use the mixer for the flour and it came out perfect. The dough seemed crumbly and hard at first, but after rolling it more and more, the texture was perfect, especially for kids. The taste is good and I will definitely use this recipe again. For icing, I use Sugar Cookie Icing by Janice Brubaker.

Easy Shake and Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2004
I also used skinless, boneless chicken breasts. I didn't have sage, so I used oregano instead. It was still very good and easy. I think I will cut down the butter next time though.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2003
I adjusted the recipe with the amount of milk and corn syrup to get it to the consistency I liked (about 3 tsp of milk and 3 tsp of corn syrup). The icing tasted and looked good and was pretty easy to work with. I used this on the Soft Christmas Cookies by Georgie Bowers. I will use this again.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2004
This was tastier than I thought and was very easy. Since I didn't have the beans, I substituted the beans with cooked rice as another reviewer suggested. I also put about 3 cups of chicken broth instead of 5. The combination of spices smelled and tasted good!

Bubble 'n' Squeak

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2004
Not bad; my husband liked it. It's simple, but a lot of chopping is required. It's best to have everything chopped up first before putting it together. I added more bacon slices, around 5.

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2004
This is a very versatile and relatively easy recipe. I used the Pizza Sauce II recipe for the pizza sauce (halved that recipe). My husband is a pizza lover, so he loved this. I like pizza occassionally and this wasn't bad, but it was a bit strong for me. I'll probably modify it so that it isn't quite so strong-tasting.

Marchetti

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2004
I made a lot of substitutions, depending on what I had on hand. I used 1 lb of ground turkey, 8 oz tomato sauce in place of tomato soup, sharp cheddar cheese instead of american, and no mushrooms. I thought it was quite good and easy. 1 lb. seemed enough meat for us. I will keep this recipe.

Cream Cheese and Ham Spread

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2004
This is a pretty good spread for such an easy recipe. It definitely has more flavor after refrigeration overnight.

Hot Spiced Cider

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2003
This was not bad and was pretty simple, but I'm still looking for one that is similar to the one I had at Hobee's restaurant. Hobee's is very flavorful with a bunch of spices, but I can't tell what. I used a pot since I don't have a coffee maker and I took the suggestion of using a coffee filter.

Easier Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2004
I'm not a big fan of chicken marsala, but my husband is (I don't really like the wine taste/smell). I tried this and my family liked it. The chicken is tender and it was pretty easy to make. I didn't have marsala wine, so I substituted with Chinese rice wine which is like a dry sherry. I also did as other reviewers suggested, doubled the wine, plus I added 3/4 cup of chicken broth. I simmered longer as well. To thicken the sauce, I added a cornstarch slurry. Next time I think I'll use less wine and more broth (as a compromise between me & my husband ;-)).
