Stir Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2004
This was great with the changes I made, I actually was cooking from memory. I cooked in a skillet with some olive oil the garlic, added the asparagus then put about 1/2 cup of the teriyaki sauce in and covered it and let the sauce steam the asparagus. I actually like my vegetables on the soft side so I left it for about 10 minutes. It was wonderful.

Alfredo Light

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
I thought this was pretty good. In general I think alfredo sauce doesn't taste like much more than butter and cream. This wasn't too different. I did make a few changes. I didn't want to use so many pots so first I started the pasta. While that was going I sauted the onion, garlic and oil. When that was limp to golden brown I added the flour. I stirred that until it was all blended then added the liquid. For liquid I used a can of evaporated skim milk, a can of water and a teaspoon of chicken broth base which would be like chicken boullion. I added the pepper and a dash of cayenne pepper too. When that came to a boil I added the cheese. My kids liked it and I thought it was good. I'm not a fussy eater just happy when my kids eat without complaining.

Dijon Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2004
This was terrific. I made a few changes. I cooked in a skillet with some olive oil the onion and garlic and added some portobello and button mushrooms then added them on top of the salmon per the recipe instructions. It was wonderful. I made the same thing with chicken for my husband since he doesn't like salmon and he liked his too.

Broiler S'mores

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
of course the camp fire version is better but when it rained on our campfire this was a great second. The kids were really surprised. They didn't think we would be able to have genuine smores. This really fit the bill. Be careful, once the marshmallows are turned they brown really fast.

Pork Tenderloin alla Napoli

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2004
Everyone will think that I am crazy but here are my substitutions. First, I used a tsp of dried rosemary since I didn't have fresh. I also substituted evaporated skim milk for the cream. Finally I didn't have the olives so I substituted diced kosher pickles. I know it sounds crazy but even my fussy son ate it and liked it. My husband couldn't get past the look of the gravy with the milk and the chopped tomatoes and pickles so he would try it but I thought it was excellent. The pork was tender and moist too.

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
I was only making this for myself, so I only used 1 avocado, 1/2 a small onion, 1 tsp dried cilantro. I didn't have any ripe tomatoes so I opened a can of diced tomatoes and used some of the tomatoes strained. The guacamole turned out great and was a perfect amount for 1 serving.

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2003
Very moist and good. I cut the apples into chunks and increased the cinnamon to 1 tsp and added 1 tsp of baking powder. They were really good.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
Everyone loved this except my "Never eat any veggies" son who saw me putting the zucchini it. I cut the oil to 3/4 cup and changed the flour to 2 cups flour and 1 cup oats. I also used heaping cups of zucchini. I didn't have plain vanilla so I used vanilla butter rum flavored. I did not add the nuts either. With all those changes it was great. I cooked them for 60 minutes and they came out perfect. I will definitely make again.

Biscotti Toscani

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2005
This really tasted alot like cardboard. Maybe it was the changes that I made but the cooking time adjustments I had to make surely wasn't me. My oven is usually pretty accurate. I substituted splenda for the sugar. I didn't have the orange zest so I substituted liquid orange extract. I added 1 tsp of cinnamon. The dough was so dry that I had to add about 1/4 cup of liquid, I used coffee. When I baked it I had to add 15 minutes cooking time the first time and doubled the cooking time the second time. In a word Yuk!

Moroccan Salmon Cakes with Garlic Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2005
I was very disappointed. I did substitute talapia and orange roughy for salmon since my husband doesn't like salmon but otherwise I made this by the recipe. I thought it was bland and tasted like dressed up coucous more than anything else. Sorry, I won't be making this again.

Flavorful Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2004
Pretty good. It would be easy to add kidney beans or chicken and make it a one dish meal.

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2003
I made some changes to this and maybe that's why I didn't like it. I used Cranberry beans instead of kidney beans and skipped the sausage since that's not available where I am and wanted to make it a vegetarian version. I added some salt and pepper. It was pretty sausy, which is good, but it just didn't have enough flavor. I won't make this again. I'll try some other rice and beans version.

A Good Easy Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
I did not have the season salt so I used cajun spice instead. I also added thickened chicken broth for gravy knowing that my kids usually complain about dry meat and... My 17 yo son complained that the chicken was bland and dry. I was also not very impressed with this recipe. This might be okay for someone that is just starting to cook as a base but really needs a lot of work to be called a main course.

Easy Corn Chowder I

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
I needed to double the recipe for my family. When I started cooking there were so many reasons to go wrong. First I didn't have an onion, then I had only one potato. I finally used 2 TBSP onion powder, the one onion, 1 1/2 cups potato flakes. I added a stalk of celery to try and get the chunk that I was missing. I used frozen corn instead of frozen and only one can of cheddar cheese soup (remember I was doubling the recipe) but I didn't have another can of condensed soup. Believe it or not, with all the substitutions, it turned out good enough for my husband to have seconds (and he doesn't do that unless he likes it). All in all a success even with all my substitutions.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2005
This is GREAT!! This is the only Banana bread that my kids will eat LIKE CRAZY. And the best is that it uses sooo many banana's. I use 5 bananas. I also have substituted ground oats instead of the flour to up the fiber but it is great as written too.

Black Bean Hummus

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2004
My hummus was way too soupy. I added a roasted red pepper but I wouldn't think that would make it soupy. Adding the drained liquid from the can of beans made them particularly memorable for my family even after I ate them, if you know what I mean. If I make this again I will drain and rinse the beans and not add the liquid from the can.

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2004
These were really good. I made them just as written but ended up cooking them for twice as long. I probably had more seeds than the recipe called for though.

Baked Orange Roughy Italian-Style

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2004
This was really good. My fish hating husband even liked it and said he would eat it again. My kids said they liked it too. I made a few changes. I soaked my roughy in milk like previously suggested. Then I halved the salt and butter and added fresh chopped basil with the parsley. I also used home made bread crumbs instead of canned so my bread crumbs were larger. At the end I had some butter and bread crumbs leftover so I mixed them together and put them on top. Turned out good with the extra bread crumbs being crunchy. Not fishy either, which my husband hates.

Baked Pork Chops II

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2004
This was really good and easy. I breaded the pork chops before browning and added button and portobello mushrooms to the onions. It was really tastey and had lots of good sauce. It reminded me of chicken catchatorry.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
If I could give this a zero I would. I must have done something terribly wrong but I followed the directions right up until it says add the cheese. I added the cheese and the cheese immediately started clumping and ended up in one big clump with the melted butter and some other kind of thin liquid around it. It smelled sour too. I tried another recipe.
