Zucchini Yogurt Multigrain Muffins

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
My toddler (and I) could eat these all day long! I made a few substitutions based on what I had on hand and personal preference. I didn't have quite enough applesauce, so I added in a couple of mashed bananas, and didn't drain the zucchini much to make up for the extra liquid needed. I used chopped up oats, for oat flour (increased to just over 1 cup), and I omitted the sugar. I made 12 muffins with half the batter, and then turned the oven down to 350 and used the other half in a bread pan for about 45 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
I didn't have any buttermilk, so I substituted fat free sour cream, plus used slightly less butter. My husband's response was "this is perfect." I completely agree.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2007
You never realize just how unhealthy alfredo sauce is until you make it...but it is sooo good! I used whipping cream (had some onhand), and added pepper and chunky smoked salmon at the end and served it over fresh linguine. Absolutely loved it!

Mom's Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
I've been looking for some pancakes that are a little different that my husband and I both enjoy (I love cottage cheese pancakes, he does not, I think regular pancakes need something extra, he does not). These make for a moist, tasty pancake that we both love. I use bisquick mix and home made applesauce and now I make these all the time.

African Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
This was much more bland than we expected. It definitely needs more to it.

Gerry's Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2006
Very good, instead of heavy cream I left a little sauce in the pan and heated the tortillas on it one at a time, then put the remainder on top. I also added olives on top and inside the enchiladas and a mixture of cheddar and monteray jack cheese.

Rockfish with Crab and Old Bay Cream Sauce

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
I used haddock, as we don't have rockfish up here, looking forward to trying with other fish as well. I love cream sauces, and my husband dislikes them, and we both really liked this dish. I think the spices and mustard gave it enough flavor that he didn't mind the cream!

Turkey Chili

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
I made this both as a vegetarian version (for guests) and non-vegetarian (with turkey). Both were excellent. Changes I made were: added a beer and broth (vegetable or chicken, depending on verison) for liquid instead of water and boullian. Added garlic and several spices, about a teaspoon of cumin, oregano, and cayenne pepper, and 1/4 tsp of white pepper. Finally, put in a small head of broccoli, chopped, which added a little texture.

Puttanesca I

Reviewed: May 8, 2006
I used a food processor for the tomatoes as suggested by a previous reviewer. I also added calamari and shrimp to the sauce (1/2 lb. each). Served over angel hair pasta. We loved the result!

Grilled Stuffed Red Snapper

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
I used slightly less bread crumbs and cooked it in the oven with the stuffing on top. We loved the result, I think it would be good with any type of fish.

Won Ton Snacks

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
Used ground turkey instead of pork, and only used a little more than a pound. Will still need to increase vegetables next time, as I prefer a higher vege to meat ratio, will try the cabbage other reviewers suggest. They crisped up nicely and were popular. I love the fact that they aren't fried!

Authentic Thai Cashew Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
Doubled the sauce and the whole thing was gobbled up with lots of compliments. Also added straw mushrooms instead of regular mushrooms and only used two large chicken breasts. Second time added a couple of celery stalks chopped, which was a great extra flavor, and cut down on the ketchup and sugar, as we thought it was a touch too sweet initially.

Cream of Asparagus Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
Excellent recipe, we added MUCH more white and black pepper then called for, and this really made the soup better for us, try adding more to taste and offering it on the table as well. Also decreased the bouillion significantly to decrease salt. Sometimes I use 4-6 cups chicken broth and no boullion or condensed broth, it just depends what I have on hand, but always a huge favorite with friends and family. I have also used fat free half and half or skim milk if it just for family (saves calories, but not quite as rich).

Grilled Shrimp Rice Noodle Bowl

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
We really enjoyed this recipe, tangy and sweet, a pleasant surprise. I would make a littel more of the sauce then it calls for. I used wide rice noodles, but ay size would be great. Thanks!

Pasta with Mushroom and Zucchini Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
One of my husbands all time favorites. I slice all of the veges instead of chopping them in the food processor, this makes them more noticable. I only use 1 zuccini and usually try to put in a couple types of mushrooms totaling 1 lb or so (crimini and shitake are both excellent).

Elegant Orzo with Wilted Spinach and Pine Nuts

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2005
This recipe lacked in taste. My husband and I ate it, but decided we will not be making it again, it seemed bland, and probably needed several additional ingredients to make it worth it.

The Captain's Famous Jambalaya

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2005
My husband claims this is the best jambalaya I've ever made (and I've made a few). We love seafood, so I added shrimp and calamari. Have tried it with red snapper and tilapia, good with either, but snapper was better. Also put in a little turkey polska kielbasa.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2004
I love having things I can throw in the oven and forget about while I am entertaining. These were so easy to prepare and very easy to cook. Next time I might throw in some other vegetables to roast with the potatoes.
