Easy Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
Turned out pretty well, but the recipe itself is flawed. As is, this recipe makes batter that is very dense, not the consistency of muffin batter. I added 2 eggs and about 1/3c vegetable oil to make the batter better, and about 3/4c chopped walnuts for fun. I also would have liked about twice as much of the seasonings for more flavor. Overall ok, nice and moist but not a strong pumpkin flavor. Finally, these were enormous muffins, but still cooked completely for the recommended 25 minutes.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
"Holy cow" is what my fiancee said when he tried one. Absolutley one of the top cookies I've ever made. Will definitely make again & again.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
I cheated: didn't marinate due to lack of time, and used the oven instead, but it still turned out well. My fiancee wasn't a fan of salmon, but he loved this. Will make again.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2005
Phenomenal recipe. I cheated by not marinating, but the flavor was still good. My fiancee wasn't a salmon fan, but he is now! Will make again.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
Absolutely excellent. Froze about half and it was still good each time it came out of the freezer.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2006
Pay attention to instructions! I managed to put a hole in my mom's hand-me-down 30-year-old Tupperware, but I wanted new stuff anyway :-) I did get one good batch that tastes great, like it was bought from a candy store. I can't wait to see my family ask for the recipe and surprise my grandfather for father's day. Peanut brittle is one of his favorites.

Garlic Butter Sauce I

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
Very nice. I added a bit of salt and substituted garlic powder, but will try minced garlic next time.

Gnocchi I

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
My husband & I had been looking forward to my making this, and I am very disappointed. This is nothing like what I had when in Italy. This was very bland and chewy. I will not make again :-(

Corn and Chicken Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2006
Very good, will make again. I used 2% based on other comments, it came out fine. Not as thick as a cream-based soup (versus broth-based), but still a keeper.

Cheesy Salmon Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2006
My husband and I really liked this. My only complaint was that the pasta wasn't really coated with anything, a bit more "sauce" would have been nice. A very healthy and new way to eat salmon!

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
Absolutely fabulous! Not only is this a keeper, it's a sharer, meaning I'm forwarding it to friends & relatives.

Slow Cook Thai Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2006
My husband liked this, I hated it. I used low-salt soy sauce and coconut milk instead of chicken stock, but I still found it salty. The sauce was overpowered by the cumin, I couldn't taste the peanut butter.

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2006
I wasn't a huge fan, but my husband liked this and so did the woman hosting the party I brought the beans to. It does make a lot, so I'll probably save this for big occassions and not make it for just the two of us.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2006
Absolutely wonderful, will make again and again. Only change was way less butter to make it a bit healthier. Next time I'll try plain breadcrumbs instead of the Italian kind.

Pastitsio III

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
I would give this a 3, my husband a 5, so 4 is the average. I thought this tasted like jazzed up baked ziti, nothing special. I was also disappointed by the lack of cheese flavor (I used fresh grated parm, and 2x the recommended amount). I have to admit I cut the red pepper to 1/4 tsp because I can't handle spicy foods.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
This was very good. Freshly grated parmesan added great flavor. The only thing I didn't like was the oiliness/greasiness. I might skip the mayo next time.

I agree with many other reviewers. These were incredibly bland, I won't make this recipe again.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
This is truly fantastic, I didn't change a thing! Don't save it just for the holidays, I'd eat this anytime. It went especially well with pork chops, since the sweet balanced the salty.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2006
Everyone liked this, I thought it was a little bland. Next time I might add the worsteshire (sp?) sauce or try beef gravy instead of beef broth or add minced garlic. I didn't mash the carrots (yuck), added some leftover corn I had, and had to sneak a little milk into the potatoes.

Chicken Curry I

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2006
Excellent! I used 1 pound chicken breast chunks, halved the curry since 3T seemed like a lot, halved the cayenne since I'm a wimp, and used only a small amount of onion/oil. Using other reviewers' suggestions, I used 2c chicken broth instead of water and added diced carrots for the last 5 minutes and served over rice. No, I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but the end result was delicious.
