The Best Meatballs

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
Very tasty - I baked in the oven to reduce the fat. I made the mistake of not adding additional salt thinking they probably wouldn't need it since I used a Tuscan italian seasoning blend that had salt in. Could have used a bit more. I made half tiny meatballs for wedding soup and the other half standard size to freeze for sauce later.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
Very good - made in the crock pot with frozen chicken breast and just shredded before serving. Didn;t have corn so subbed a can of black beans. Delish!

Hash Brown Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
delicious. To make a bit more figure friendly, you can use low fat sour cream and soup (used mushroom because thats what I had in the house) and about half the butter and the results are still very good.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Great taste, used real chicken and Marie's super blue cheese dressing and layered instead of mixing all together. Did look a little oily, so I am going to play around to see if I can fix that...

Garlicky Baked Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
When are you supposed to add the cheese? With the oil mixture or at the end? Liked this, did not love it. A little too salty, didn't love the parmesan cheese with butternut squash.

Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Good recipe. Used half white whole wheat flour, which gave it a bit stronger aftertaste, but the kids still ate them up. Did not use the syrup, chocolate chips are sweet enough!

Swiss Chard with Garbanzo Beans and Fresh Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
This dish was pretty good - I used kale instead of swiss chard. I think next time I will use cannelini beans or some other bean because I am just not a fan of the texture of garbanzo beans.

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
Very good. Left out the last bit of butter in the sauce to save a couple of calories and it was plenty rich without it. The sauce has a sweet edge to it, which I wasn't quite expecting. If I made again, may try pureeing the gravy as the big hunks of shallots were not so appealing to look at...

Banoffee

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
This is yummy, its just the boiled milk I had a bit of trouble with. Mine came out kind of clumpy and didn't pour over the bananas, but I had to spread it, sort of like a peanut butter consistency, but a bit more rubbery. Therefore, the first can didn't cover my bananas, so I had to use the second can I boiled. Now maybe my toffee to banana ratio is off and it will be just too much...Also, be careful when you first open the can, I used a bottle opener and it spurted out onto my hand - hot sugar - ouch!

Stir-Fried Vegetables

Reviewed: May 1, 2009
This is a very good basic recipe, but I would have liked just a bit more flavor in the sauce. I added a little more soy sauce and three cloves of minced garlic along with the ginger. Next time I may try even more garlic and maybe oyster sauce or teriyaki just to jazz it up a bit more. (Maybe I am missing the monosodium glutamate from the Chinese Restaurant!!) Anyway, works very well with whatever variety of veggies you have on hand. It will stay in the recipe box!

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
very good - but I got nervous when the custard didn't seem to moisten the top half of the pan of bread - so after I had already put on the cinn/sugar topping and butter, I decided to dump out the pan and mix evertyhing in a large bowl to evenly distribute the egg mixture. After putting it back in the baking pan, i added more toppings again. It was pretty good this way, but I think it would have been too dry and maybe not as flavorful had I not taken that extra step. Served for dinner with ham slices and applesauce.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Good - but I did not have to bake for an hour and 20 minutes - probably only 55 minutes or so, and even then the crust was very dry and a little overdone. The middle was a nice texture. I am sorry I cut back to just 1 cup of raisins, I think the recipe is correct on this, 1 1/2 would have been better. I would have liked a touch more sugar, as well...

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
Very good, I like the idea of making my own pudding rather than using the box mix with all those other additives. I did detect a slight corn-starchy taste, but not overpowering. Also, I must admit I forgot to add the vanilla at the end, so maybe that would have smoothed out the flavor a bit. I had a little trouble getting rid of the lumps in my cocoa and cornstarch, so might consider running it thru the sifter first. Will continue to play with this recipe.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
Very good. Not too much of the coconut or pineapple flavor comes through - just moist and dense in texture. Used whipped cream cheese frosting from this site, which was super.

Crustless Cranberry Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
Good, but more like a coffee-cake baked in a pie-pan than a true pie. Lots of cranberries make this quite tart, so just be prepared, you might want to serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
Too peppery for our taste, and a bit too acidic as well. I would agree with a previous reviewer who recommended a milder vinegar and no lemon juice. The classic combination of salad ingredients is fine, its just the dressing that is off. I have also seen similar broccoli salads that include sunflower seeds or nuts for crunch, which I like. I will remove this one from my recipe box and keep looking for a better one...

Frosted Cranberry Drop Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2008
The cookie itself is 5-star quality, but I rated this 4 stars because I did not care for the frosting. It turned out to be an unappealing beige color, not white, and was more like a heavy buttercream frosting, more suitable for a cake. The cookies are tart and do need a little sweetness on top - after frosting only a few cookies and throwing the rest of the frosting out, I made the glaze from the "Iced Pumpkin cookies" on this site and that did the trick. BTW, those pumpkin cookies are easy, delicious and perfect for the fall holidays as well.
