Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Vegetables

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
I'm surprised so many folks gave this recipe such a great review. Then after reviewing them, I see all the substitutions and changes and I see why. The recipe as it stands is very bland. I ate one of the 4 peppers and threw the rest out. It might be better using turkey sausage and cheese but I probably won't bother trying again.

Chili Dog Casserole II

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2006
This was just OK. I think I would've rather made hot dogs wrapped in ready made dough and had the chili on the side. I probably won't make this one again.

Rosemary Mashed Potatoes and Yams

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
These did seem to be a a lot of work for a side dish but they were SO tasty. I ate half of them this week and froze the other 5 portions. I will make them again!

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
I'll give this 5 stars because it was very good BUT I did have to make some changes. 1) I only needed 2 eggplant and about 2 to 3 cups of bread crumbs, 2) I needed about 3 eggs (but then again I had too much eggplant so that is questionable), and 3) I let the eggplant sweat with some sea salt for about an hour and then I rinsed them off and dried them before breading. Some other helpful hints: 1) I baked my eggplants on wire racks (the kinds I cool cookies on), and 2) I ended up with 2 layers so that should help when attempting to figure out how much to “divide” the “divided” ingredients.

Chai Tea Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2006
I really do like this Chai Tea Mix but I only gave it a 4 because: a) There is a lot of residue in the cup and as "foam" when you make this. b) The mess! Grinding all of that in my food processor was a pain - and it was sticky even just "granulating" the powders up. I did have trouble finding plain tea mix so I used instant iced tea mix. I couldn't find one without lemon so I had to use it. Any suggestions on where to find that? This lemony batch wasn't bad but if I'm going to make it again, I'd want to find the non-lemon kind.

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: May 8, 2005
I thought this was very good put possibly missing something. Maybe some red and/or green bell pepper??? I will make this again though and maybe just add a little hint of something else to it.

Creme Brulee French Toast

Reviewed: May 8, 2005
It was very simple and good. I didn't care for the eggy-creamy stuff that didn't soak into the bread - hence the 4 stars. If I took that off and just ate the bread, it was excellent. My parents seemed to love it.

Salmon Patties III

Reviewed: May 4, 2005
Very easy to make and so good! I found that I didn't need all the cornflake crumbs it called for. I made the burger mixture the day before and rolled them the following day. I used an ice cream scooper to get them consistent - the last patty may come out a bit small (or not at all). I didn't use olive oil but did spray my pan with Pam Olive Oil cooking spray. I served them on wheat buns with romaine lettuce and mayo that I doctored up with lemon juice and basil. A definite make again!

Elegant Orzo with Wilted Spinach and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: May 4, 2005
So delicious and beautiful to look at! I made this with Salmon Patties III for dinner with friends. It was a huge hit! I might use a bit more garlic next time. I know for the amount of food, we doubled the tomato and chopped a whole one instead of half of one as well.

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: May 4, 2005
BURNED! With all the work I did to cut the sweet potatoes too! Next time, I'll just bake them. What a waste! Maybe mine were too thin? Dimensions may have helped.

Fresh Pear Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2005
This was pretty good but I probably won't make it again. The bread ended up a little chewy which I didn't understand.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2005
So easy and so good. I LOVE basil. I used fat free chicken broth and this still had a lot of flavor. Will definitely make again.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2005
If I could give it more stars, I would. This was so simple and very tasty. I will definitely make this again. I may add a bit more lemon juice next time. I might even use fresh basil instead of dried. It was awesome as is though!

Salmon in Lemon-Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2005
This was my first attempt with making fish ever. It was delicious. I did make some changes in order to add flavor and cut fat. I used fresh dill and thyme (double the dry amounts) per reviewers suggestion. I substituted milk for cream (so I used 1 cup of 2% milk instead of 1/2 cup heavy cream and 1/2 cup milk). I think I only used about 4 tbsp of butter. I don't think I added more butter to the sauce once it was thick (if I did, it wasn't 1/4 cup) and used about 1/8 tbsp when cooking the salmon first. Once the salmon was finished cooking in the sauce, I decided to thin the sauce a bit with more milk, lemon juice, and wine so that I could pour the sauce over some wheat pasta. It was excellent! It didn't need any more herbs since it was flavorful enough.

Garlic-Lemon Double Stuffed Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2005
SO Good! I used low fat cream cheese. I found it probably would've been too difficult to slice the chicken so thinly so I pounded it a bit thinner and rolled the ingredients in the chicken breast halves. I secured each one with a toothpick before baking. Next time I will use shredded cheddar to make that rolling a bit easier. I also baked them for quite a bit longer (at least 10-15 minutes more) than the recipe called for. They still came out very juicy. I think I will use a little less cream cheese on each one as well. I didn't find I needed as much of the milk and bread crumbs either. This was a messy one to prepare but well worth it. My picky boyfriend loved it. When he says, "Care, you done good." and goes back for seconds... what more compliment do you need?

Cranberry Chicken II

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2005
I wasn't really happy with the taste of this one. It had an odd flavor... just like another reviewer said they couldn't put their finger on it nor could they determine if they liked it or not. The chicken was juicy. I was just trying to find something to use up my leftover cranberries. I'll find something else next time instead.

White Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2005
This was really good and easy to make. Substituted chicken for turkey; chicken broth for water; and pepper jack cheese for jalapeno pepper Cheddar cheese. It didn't look the prettiest but it tasted great. Made it with corn casserole and toasted bread. There was some cheese stuck to the pan but nothing a little soaking and elbow grease couldn't handle. Will DEFINITELY make again!

Toffee Chunk Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2003
I will definitely try this one again. I followed the recipe as directed. The end result was delicious but a bit on the runny side. Also, the pan seemed to almost overflow!!! I'd try it in a 10 inch springform next time instead of the 9 inch. I think it would give it just that little bit of extra room it needed. Next time, I'd try baking it longer and try the toffee pieces mixed in with the cheesecake. I'd also drizzle the top with chocolate and caramel to make it even prettier than it was.

Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2003
I thought this one was VERY easy to make and tasted great. It was a little messy to cut and serve. I followed the advice of some reviewers and cut the "crust" cookies so they had a flat edge. This worked well. I couldn't find raspberry pie filling so I used the same amount of frozen raspberries. I think if I make this another time, I'd try using a simpler sugar cookie on the layers and put this in a trifle. I think it would be easier to scoop out than to cut and serve as slices. I would be more of a layered dessert than an actual cheesecake.
