Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2004
Using some of the suggestions from other reviewers, I cubed the sweet potatoes and put them in a large ziplock plastic bag. Then I added the olive oil, using about 4 teaspoons, and rolled the potatoes around to coat before adding the spices. A couple of quick shakes of the bag and they were coated to perfection. I microwaved this dish, using 1/3 of the recommended cooking time. We loved the results! The spice list struck us as a similar to Emeril's Essence so I'll probably fool around with that plus the brown sugar next time.

Peach Cobbler III

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
Excellent! Very easy and took only minutes to prepare. I used very ripe peaches and cut back on the cinnamon sugar combination. This was delicious served when warm with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Pistachio Cake III

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
I've made this cake about 5 times. At least twice, it's completely collapsed during the cooling process, once it didn't rise at all. It always tastes good... but I can't count on it to come out well every time. So, it's a "family-only" cake until I can figure out how to get it to come perfectly every time. Suggestions welcome. auntiej500@netscape.net

Butternut Squash Pizzas with Rosemary

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
What a find! I used an oat bran pita bread instead of the pizza dough and pre-cooked/mashed squash in place of the sliced squash. Once they came out of the oven, we topped with more diced veggies. Excellent springboard for creative lunches!!!

Chocolate Cobbler

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
This cobbler was really good, a big hit at our house! After reading the reviews about it being too sweet, I reduced the sugar amounts to 2/3 cup each (50/50 sugar and Splenda). The result was a lovely chocolatey pudding cake; I would have needed the extra sugar to get the "crunchy" cobbler effect. Regardless, we tucked into it and finished it off in two nights. For next time, I think I'll increase the topping sugar (to 3/4 cup) and add some instant coffee granules to the cake mixture to enhance the chocolate flavor. My partner said he thought it would be nice with dried currants or dried cherries, so I'll work that variation in, too. Thanks for the recipe!

Honey Nut Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2005
Very easy to make and tasty, too! I used dried cranberries instead of the nuts, an interesting flavor combination with the dates! I'm looking forward to making them again with different dried fruits!

Maple Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2005
Huge hit at our house! Light, chewy, and sweet without being cloying. DBF is a maple-aholic and this recipe was an instant success. :-) I used Grade B maple syrup, as this is our preference and what was on-hand. Grade B isn't easy to find outside sugar houses, so when it's gone, I'll probably use whatever real Grade A is commercially available and add some maple flavoring.

Terrific Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2004
Very nice! I had to fool with it (of course) to accommodate ingredients on hand but the end result was tasty. Makes a bigger batch than 6 servings... we got at least 10 servings from one recipe. Not a problem with hungry teens!

Lentil Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
Nice for a quick meal. I used canned lentils (rinsed and drained) and a large (~26 oz) can of pasta sauce for the tomatoes specified in the recipe.

Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2011
Easy and delicious! Definitely a keeper. I used fat-free evaporated milk and omitted the cheese (forgot it).

Summer Squash Casserole with Nuts

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
Delicious and a versatile way to feature summer squash, as well using ingredients you might have on-hand. I can visualize oodles of combinations. I used green onions (scallions) for the onion, microwaved the squash, onion and pepper to soften them (no butter or sugar used), and light sour cream in place of the mayo. Added a handful of dried cranberries for color and subbed in a handful of pine nuts for the pecans.

Chicken Spaghetti IV

Reviewed: May 11, 2004
Wonderful! I was searching for "something different to do with chicken" and selected this recipe. So easy and very tasty. I added garlic to the veggie saute and seasoned the chicken (Emeril's Essence) because I just do things like that! This is a great way to create a delicious meal and not heat up the kitchen!

Blueberry Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
This fruit combination is very good, although I agree with a previous poster this isn't what I'd label a fruit crisp. I didn't get the topping to crumble; however, it did work up to a dumpling consistency and that worked just fine. Overall, a very tasty dessert.

Pear-a-dise Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
We liked these. They are very tasty when added flavorings (suggested by previous reviewers) are used. I doubled the amounts of pears, cinnamon and nutmeg, added a tablespoon of ground flax seed, and used vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt. To skinny it down for my diet plan, I used unsweetened applesauce (for the oil), 1/4 cup egg substitute for the egg, and fat-free yogurt. This is a keeper!

Very Berry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
Very hardy muffin with a wonderful fresh-fruit zing! Not overly sweet, either, which is fine by us. I selected this recipe specifically for the oatmeal (filling, good fiber) and made them with raspberries instead of blueberries. The muffins vanished in two days, a sure sign this recipe is a keeper!

Savory Sausage, Cheese and Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2011
We enjoyed these. I'm putting them in the "rotation" of savory muffins that we enjoy with soup or by themselves for breakfast.

Pepperoni Pizza Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2010
What a nice, savory muffin! I made 12 hearty muffins from this recipe, using reduced-fat baking mix and cheeses and turkey pepperoni. They have a mild pizza aroma and flavor reminiscent of the pizza from our favorite Greek pizza shop. I'm going to try using pizza sauce (good idea!) and adding garlic next time and see which version we prefer. Thank you, Andrea, for sharing your recipe.

Lentil and Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
We enjoyed this tremendously! I used chicken sausage (dietary preference) but otherwise followed the recipe. We're soup people and this one is now in the "keeper" file. Thanks so much!
