Original Nestle® Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2008
I grew up near the Toll House in Whitman , MA and have Ruth Wakefield's original recipe. It calls for butter, not shortening as one reviewer said. This recipe is almost identical, but Mrs. Wakefield dissolved the soda in 1 tsp hot water. Also, the Toll House always chilled the dough overnight to prevent the cookies from spreading too much. This recipe is my favorite choc chip recipe.

Chicken Alfredo with Fettuccini Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
I used prepared (cooked) chicken from the supermarket as a shortcut but otherwise followed exactly. I did not feel it had a grainy texture as some said, but I used freshly grated cheese not the dried stuff on the store shelves . My husband loved this. I thought the Ricotta was a great idea and not overpowering at all. So easy too- definately will make again

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
I had high hopes for this considering the unique ingredients. I used canned yams (rinsed to get rid of syrup) and took the tip to mash beans before going into pan. The bean mixture was so watery from 2 cups of water so I added the sweet potatoes to it. (the recipe is not clear). This was a lot of effort without much payback of results. Not planning to make again.

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
Really good. I used very thin chicken breasts (like veal cutlets) to reduce cooking time. Will become a favorite.

Fish Chowder

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I'm from the New England coast- this was very,very good. Quick to prepare, tastes like you worked very hard. I left out the mushrooms- didn't feel they were authentic. I don't understand the reviews where people complained about the taste of evaporated milk in the recipe. Sometimes people confuse condensed milk with evaporated... will make this again and again.

Vegetarian Moussaka

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
I love the idea of lentils in this recipe. This recipe was time consuming, and I felt it could use more seasoning, but my husband and daughter declared it a winner. So, I will make it again if they ask.

Couscous with Mushrooms and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
I used the sundried tomatoes packed in olive oil and herbs (more flavor) and skipped the soaking step. I added some feta cheese that I had on hand. Omitted the cilantro because I didn't have any and I didn't miss it. Very nice vegetarian dish and surprisingly filling.

Easy Mashed Potato and Roasted Vegetable Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
I didn't warm the tortillas. Although they cracked as I rolled, it's all mended when they bake in sauce. This is very original. It make too much filling though!

Best Chicken Ever

Roasted Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: May 5, 2008
This is very good, but I feel spaghetti sauce masks the flavor of the roasted vegetables. I prefer another recipe from this website: "Greek pasta salad with roasted vegetables and feta".

Lasagna Alfredo Roll Ups

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
My whole family enjoyed this; it makes a nice presentation as well. The only downside is commercially prepared Alfredo sauce tends to be a bit salty. I used the refrigerated kind- I think it is better than the ones in shelf-stable jars (but more expensive). I definately will make this again.

Quick Greek Pasta Salad with Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
I had never heard of sun dried tomato pesto, but it works well for this recipe. I used pine nuts instead of sunflower seeds as it seemed "more Greek" to me. My family really enjoyed this- gave it 4 stars. I felt it was more like 3.

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
I used the tip to cut up checken breasts before cooking- very good ides. I hesitated between 3 and 4 stars. I felt it was rather bland, but my husband really liked it. Our teen said it tasted like chicken pie filling-he thought it was ok. I used 99% fat free cream of chicken soup- maybe it would be better with regular? It was easy to make. Not sure if I would make again;maybe it's just personal taste. I looked in the James Beard cookbook and he said Chicken and Dumplings should be eaten once or teice per year, no more!

Two Ingredient Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
My family was skeptical when I said what I was doing, but I made it exactly as written, baking for 25 minutes. We all liked it. The pumpkin adds vitamins but has no fat. This is easy and inexpensive as well. Recommend frosting it for presentation (I used cream cheese frosting);sprinkling with Fall colored or themed sprinkles would be a nice touch.
