Becky's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
This recipe has a lot of potential! But when I made it exactly as the recipe directed, I found it on the edge of being inedible. I think making just two adjustments would go a long way: 1. Decrease the amount of mayo. 1 cup is way too much. I'd say start at 1/2 c, and add from there, maybe up to 3/4c. 2. Eliminate the salt. Though it was just 1 teaspoon, it made the entire thing very salty. And you can't undo that. Perhaps just add salt to taste, or none at all (which is what I'm inclined to do.)

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ginger and Honey

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I was looking for a new twist on sweet potatoes for our Thanksgiving dinner. I think it's best not to stray too far from the classics. I put in a small amount of ginger, as suggested by other reviews. But then the cardamom was the focus of the dish, rather than the sweet potatoes. My daughter, who loves sweet potatoes, rejected this with one bite. It was a big disappointment.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
We like this meatloaf--even my toddler! It works much better to put the brown sugar and ketchup on bottom, though it seems like it should go on the top. But it's much tastier the way it's written. I've made small adjustments: I use half ketchup/half barbecue sauce, a little less milk (or else it's too mushy), and bread crumbs instead of saltines. It works out very nicely. It's become a staple food in our home.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
This was not a success. I thought the banana taste was a bit lacking, and the pancake was too mushy--not light and fluffy at all, even after sifting the dry ingredients. My toddler loves pancakes and bananas, and turned this recipe down. I think it may be better just to use a standard pancake recipe and add chopped bananas to it.

Chicken Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
I found it a little bland. But my 1 year old really likes it, so it's a winner for us.

Mushroom Orzo

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
This is a very tasty recipe! A little on the greasy side, though. I substituted half the butter with olive oil. The next time I make this, I will start out with half as much of each and add more as needed. I also used chicken broth instead of water like some other folks.

Sauteed Garlic Asparagus

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2007
Too much butter in this recipe. The flavor was okay, but cooking it for as long as the recipe calls for (the least amount of time) makes the asparagus too soft and mushy.

Shrimp and Mushroom Linguini with Creamy Cheese Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
This had some really good flavors, but it was way too greasy! The recipe calls for two sticks of butter; and you feel like you're eating two sticks of butter with each bite. Also, the cream cheese does not smoothe out. This won't be a repeat in our family.
