Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2014
I doubled the recipe and substituted low fat buttermilk in place of sour milk and used Splenda instead of sugar. I reduced the salt by half and added a teaspoon of vanilla. The result was excellent. Served with blueberry compote. My husband gave the meal two thumbs up.

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
I applied a number of adjustments recommended: reduced the amount of pasta & cooked it separately, used frozen spinach, added celery. Rather than being unkosher and mixing beef and chicken, I used vegetable broth and added the extra beef broth to provide a fuller flavor and served with a sprinkle of shredded parm. These being tough economic times, I doubled the recipe and got about 12 servings in all. This is definitely a filling, one-pot meal but if you can, serve it with a nice crusty bread.

Carrot Cake III

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
I made all the alterations to the recipe suggested by gneebeanie (Dec. 8, 2006). Draining the unsweetened, crushed pineapple, I soaked 1 cup of raisins in the juice then drained them before adding. I also reduced the nuts to 1/2 cup, using walnuts. The cake is so flavorful, the next time around, I'm going to replace the 1 cup of granulated sugar with 1 cup of Splenda to help reduce calories. With all the alterations, in the end, it's an entirely different recipe but a gourmet treat.

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I was dismayed to learn the fruit I bought for this recipe was consumed by a household member as a lunch, so had to do without! Even without the citrus, the corned beef was very good. I cut up Yukon Gold potatoes and added them to the bag to roast in the oven and be flavored by the meat. Yum. Instead of using 1/4 c. water to steam the cabbage, I used 1/4 c. vegetable broth to add flavor since I was apple-less!

French Breakfast Puffs

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I've made this recipe several times since discovering it! I followed the advice of other reviewers to skip the butter bath and just sprinkle cinnamon over the tops before baking. I also double the amount of nutmeg because I enjoy that flavor. The recipe is quick and easy. The ingredients are always on hand. They make a great Sunday breakfast with a bit of jam or apple butter. This recipe has a permanent place on my "regulars" list!

Long Johns

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2007
The were a bit dense. If I make the recipe again, I'll allow more time for rising and I'll add more spice. The nutmeg has great flavor but next time I think I'll add a little mace or allspice, too.

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: May 31, 2007
This is a fantastic recipe. If you're looking for an alternative to the same old brownies for a tea, picnic, or pot luck, give this recipe a whirl. Of course, the quality of the peanut butter used effects the flavor but the texture of the brownies is wonderfully chewy. I cream the sugars, butter, vanilla, and egg then fold in the dry ingredients until just combined. The finished batter looks very much like peanut butter fudge. I took the advice of the reviewer who suggested putting chocolate chips on the top. I spread approximately a half-cup of chips on the brownies hot out of the oven, shut the oven off and return the pan for a minute or so to melt the chocolate. Once I remove the pan to a cooling rack, I spread the melted chocolate with a spatula and allow to cool. Bittersweet or dark chocolate would be good options, also. This recipe is definitely joining my "favorites" file.

Yeast Waffles

Reviewed: May 6, 2007
As others have said, this recipe makes nice light, crispy waffles. Unlike pancakes (or waffle-shaped pancakes), I easily ate two waffles and didn't feel like I was waddling away from the table afterwards. Based on comments posted here, I added 1 t. of vanilla to the batter to enhance the flavor but I really like the idea of making a savory waffle by adding crumbled bacon, so plan to try that the next time out. The batter was easy to put together. I scalded the milk in the microwave, then stirred the butter into it to melt; saving me an extra dish to wash. Being able to leave the batter to work overnight made for a quick finish of the dish in the morning. I'll definitely use this recipe again; especially the next time I host a brunch.

Indonesian Pork Satay

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2007
I substituted 1 cup low fat, chunky peanut butter for the peanuts, left out the butter completely, and used 1/2 c. low sodium vegetable broth and a scant 1/2 c. low sodium soy sauce to reduce both the fat and sodium content. The sauce was a nice consistency and had good flavor. I reserved 1 cup for dipping sauce and used the remainder to marinate the pork. That way, I could quickly heat the dipping sauce in the microwave without having to worry about boiling it for safety after being in contact with the raw meat.

Ranchers Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
I made a few substitutions but my husband really enjoyed the end result! To reduce the fat and sodium content, I made my own spicy pork sausage using a recipe submitted by Erika on AllRecipes.com and used Northern White Beans instead of butter beans (which my hub doesn't care for). The recipe was easy to "lighten up" by purchasing low-fat, low-sodium canned baked beans and low-sodium BBQ sauce. To further reduce the fat, I simply browned the meats, then drained, and rinsed with really hot tap water before turning back into the skillet. The best part was, my hub had two helpings and never noticed a thing missing! Thanks for a keeper.

Spicy Pork Sausage

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
I reduced the amount spices, as suggested by other reviewers, and used a food processor to mix the ingredients together in the morning; allowing the sausage to 'cure' until evening before using it in Tanya Belt's recipe for Ranchers Beans, also posted on AllRecipes.com. The best thing about this recipe is that I can control the fat and salt content.

Cinnamon Bun Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
This recipe is a great, healthier alternative to my favorite scone recipe that calls for sour cream, eggs, and butter! I use egg substitute or egg whites and margarine to reduce cholesterol in this recipe and use raw sugar instead of refined. I reduce the salt to 1/8 t. but add the grated zest of one orange or a few drops of orange oil to compensate. With a drizzle sugar glaze, my husband doesn't even notice the reduced sugar content in this scone.

Indian Chapati Bread

Reviewed: May 31, 2005
Good recipe. I enjoyed the mild, nutty flavor of the wheat flour. Since it is just my husband and I, it was easy to cut the recipe in half. I also added a couple pinches of sugar for just a hint of sweetness. I really enjoyed the fact it took me no more time to make the Chapati than it does to make biscuits! Another recipe for my binder of favorites. Thanks for submitting it!

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2004
Splendiferous!!!! This is a great recipe and so easily adapted to different flavors. I split the dough in half and cut each round into eight wedges to extend the recipe. I've been very happy with how these hold up to freezing, too. That way, I can hold back part of each batch and just warm them briefly before serving them.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2004
Fast to prepare; rich and flavorful finished dish--but I wouldn't die for it. I reduced the amount of mayo to a half-cup to cut the fat and would feel comfortable cutting it down even more if I make this again. I also used a clove of garlic crushed through a press and fresh ground pepper. My husband thought this dish was good and he'd not a big fan of chicken, so I'll likely make it again in the future.

Sweet Polish Sausage

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2003
What a disappointment! Since my husband loves kielbasa, I'm always on the hunt for different ways to prepare it and had high hopes for this recipe because of the ratings and comments. While it's true, the dish was not greasy it also lacked the savory flavor I'm use to with kielbasa. The hunt continues.

Kielbasa and Veggies

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2003
My husband loves kielbasa and really enjoys this dish! It was quite greasy with all the butter, cheese and sausage. For veggies, I used frozen broccoli and cauliflower mix.

Moroccan Chicken with Polenta

My husband enjoyed this dish the first night out, while I thought it was much better two days later as leftovers.

Amy's Garlic Egg Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2003
I thought this was quite tasty; my husband said it was just "okay." I did cut the amount of butter but it was still greasy. I think, if I make it again, I'll try the low-fat trick of spraying the coated chicken with non-fat cooking spray before baking. That trick helps breaded chicken crisp up in the oven without adding a lot of extra calories.

Thai Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2003
This recipe got a "good" rating from my husband, so I know it's a keeper! I agree with everyone who said to double the sauce. I only used half the chicken and still ended up wishing there was more sauce, as it came out rather pasty. Still the flavor was good. Not authentic Thai by a long shot, but still a nice, relatively quick and tasty meal.
