Shrimp Alfredo Pasta

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2004
This was fantastic. I made a very quick and easy version. I used precooked shrimp and refrigerated linguine. I also took frozen green pepper, red pepper and onion mix and threw it into my mini chopper. Oh and I only used a 1/4 cup of butter and it was more than enough.

Grilled Salmon Kyoto

Reviewed: May 1, 2006
This was the BEST salmon I have ever eaten. It was so incredibly moist. I made some very minor changes. I used salmon filet instead of steaks and grilled it on the Foreman for 5 mins. I used low sodium soy sauce, fresh orange juice (doubled)and sesame oil instead of veggie. Thanks so much for sharing!!!!!

Bubba's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
This recipe is delicious. I only made a couple very minor changes. I diced up two jalapenos and added them to the onion mixture and added fresh ground pepper. I used brown rice and large shrimp because that's what I had. And I garnished with some fresh flat leaf parsley. **one more thing, the chicken was a bit dry. I think next time, I'd poach it in some chicken stock and throw it in at the end. Make sureyou taste before you add any salt. All the pork products, especially the bacon make it plenty salty...and I love salt. ;)

Linguine with Peppers and Sausage

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2005
This is a fantastic base. I did a lot of tweaking though. I prefer a heartier pasta with this kind of sauce. I used tortellini. Gemilli or bowties would work great too. I added salt, pepper, garlic powder, red pepper flakes and lots of Italian Seasoning. I also added baby bella mushrooms, used one red and one green pepper and romano instead or parm cheese. So good!! TFS

Italian Sausage Delight!

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2005
This was pretty good. You have to really like Italian Dressing though. I made a few changes. I used mild sausage that had been frozen. I semi defrosted it and sliced before cooking. Then I used fresh mushrooms and frozen combo of peppers and onions. I used Romano instead of parm, just because that's what I had. I also used tri colored rotini instead of penne for the same reason. tfs

German Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
I hate that you have to pay to customize these recipes. Be forewarned, I did change a few things. I halved the recipe and used an 8x8 pan lined with parchment paper. I only used 5 oz of chopped pecans and used a 1/3 cup of coconut. I toasted them for about 5 minutes in the toaster oven. I brought the syrup to 234 degrees (not necessarily 6 mins) and added the syrup to the chocolate and marshmallow and mixed well with a spoon. Then I moved the thermometer to the fudge letting the temp drop to 130 degrees. I mixed the fudge in my KA mixer until the shine is gone, about 3-4 minutes. Then I quickly mixed in the nuts. With the changes, I'd give the recipe 5 stars, but the first time I made it, I cooked only for the 6 minutes and it was a grainy mess.

Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
Yummy!! My whole family loved this soup. I omitted the shrimp because I didn't have any. I also followed another reviewers tip and precooked the wontons. Don't do that. The pork was a bit dry and the wontons too mushy. It would have been perfect had I not done that. I did add extra soy sauce and some sesame oil to the soup. It was great. TFS!!

Spicy Bean Salsa

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
This was so good and I haven't even let it set yet. I used black beans and pinto instead of the black-eyed peas. I also used fresh salad dressing jalapenos and tomatoes. I added fresh garlic, lots of cumin and cilantro. Oh, and red onion works great. In the end I drained off about a 1/2 cup of extra liquid. TFS.

Mom's Chicken Cacciatore

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2005
This recipe was a very good starting point, but it needed A LOT of work. I used fresh diced plum tomatoes. (equivalent of 2 cans) I doubled the garlic. I added fresh basil, italian seasoning, and lots of garlic salt. I also used red wine and some chicken stock. I thickened up the sauce with a can of tomato paste. Next time I will add some garlic salt to the flour also. TFS.

Dirt Cake from Nestle® Nesquik™

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2005
I know this is a Nestle recipe, but it really does not need the syrup. It's way too sweet and hard to work with.

Aunty Pasto's Seafood Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2005
I made this a long time ago. I don't remember changing the recipe any. What I do remember is that it was FANTASTIC!! I will have to make this again soon. TFS. Oh, I did use jumbo lump crab in the can. I was not sure which kind was supposed to be used. ***So my cooking style has really changed over the past few years. I made this again, but this time made my own cream of mushroom soup. (cream of mushroom soup III from this site, using half and half instead of cream). Since I did that, I didn't need to add the additional mushrooms or wine. There is sherry in the soup. I didn't need the additional milk either. I also used low-fat cream cheese. Still a fantastic recipe, though pretty expensive to make.

Tilapia with Creamy Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
One of the best recipes I have tried. I used sole instead of tilapia. I'm sure any light fish would be great. The only changes I made and I thought it made a huge difference, was change the lemon to 2 tsp and I sauteed some shallots and used them in the sauce. TFS. I can't wait to make it again.

Cream of Tomato Soup with Pesto

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
I don't even like tomato soup, but I decided to give this a try for the family. It was delicious. I followed the recipe almost exactly. I added a bit more pesto and used zesty seasoned salt to taste instead of salt and pepper. Thanks for sharing. This will be a staple from now on.

Cajun Corn Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I really wanted to like this. I thought it was just ok. I only did the second puree using my immersion blender. If I made it again, I would use more black beans and I would add the corn after the puree. The taste of "corn skins" is not pleasant. Also I preferred this with some cheese and sour cream.

Easy Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
This recipe was pretty good. I added some garlic salt to the bread crumbs. It still seemed to be lacking something. The cook time seemed to be off too. I followed the cook times as directed and the eggplant was still pretty hard.

Santa Fe Veggie Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2005
These were so good. I made them in my quesadilla maker. It was so easy. The only change I made was using frozen red and green peppers and onions, instead of the green onion and red bell pepper. TFS.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2013
Very good base recipe. I sauteed mushrooms, garlic and shallots in olive oil and butter. I added some Worcestershire sauce to the the mixture and brushed with butter and topped with just a bit of panko bread crumbs for crunch. Also the mixture was enough for 22 large stuffing mushrooms. TFS!
