Baklava II

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2003
I made this for Thanksgiving and plan on making it again for Christmas. It's a little time consuming, but very easy. My kids did most the work and had fun while making it. But the best part was eating it! It is sooo yummy! I made a few changes to meet our tastes, I used pecans instead of almonds, and omitted the cloves (I hate cloves). I'm sure it would be great with other kinds nuts if you like them better. A very good recipe.

Gramma's Apple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: May 25, 2005
Thank You Meshel! This is a great dish. I didn't follow the recipe exactly because after I cubed up the two French loaves I had, there was a lot more than 4 cups of bread. So I had to improvise, I used three apples and added extra raisins. I doubled the spices and vanilla, and sauted the friut in butter before adding. I used 1 1/2 cups of egg substitute, and because DH is lactose intolerant I used the Very Vanilla Silk instead of milk. I had to add more Silk, and I added a can of FF evaporated milk for richness. I had to bake it about 10 minutes longer and I used a bigger pan, but WOW! I also made the sauce but added water instead of milk. We drizzled the sauce on top, then topped with whip cream. Yum-O! A definte keeper for this family! Thanks again!

Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2003
This is delicious! Don't let all the fresh ingrediants discourage you from trying it. I have made this seveal times now, but I use canned corn and tomatoes and it tastes great! I use one can if diced tomatoes, and one can of Mexican tomatoes and chilis (instead of the jalapeno). I serve it with cheese quesadillas. Yum! It's kinda like the Tex-Mex version of tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches. I garnish with sour cream and chopped red onion. The first time I made this I thought the step where you puree half of it was strange, but it really adds to the texture. Don't skip this step if you can! I have actually done that to some other dishes since then, it's a good trick. Really beefs it up. This is a wholesome, hearty meal, a good change from the tradional chili.

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2004
I don't know if I'll be making this again, because this recipe is TOOOO GOOD! I had made a double batch to make sure I had enough, and it turned out that I didn't have to as this recipe should be enough to cover your average cake. Anyway, I had tons left over, and it kept calling my name from the fridge, my kids kept finding me sneaking spoonfuls of it! It is THAT good, and I am not one of those people who love frosting, and ask for the corner piece of cake. In fact, I usually scrape most the frosting off my cake before I eat it. But not this! It is so yummy! I actually added a little more powdered sugar to mine to make it a little sweeter. If you like cream cheese frosting, try this. You'll love it!

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2004
I didn't make this exactly as stated as I wanted to cut down on the fat content. I used ff cream cheese, reduced fat parmesean, and ff evaporated milk instead of plain milk. I added extra garlic since my family loves it, but we still found this to be a little bland. Not too bad though, and easy to make.

Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
We just had this for dinner tonight, definitely a keeper! This recipe is easily adaptable for your family's tastes. I doubled it to make two pies (I have teenage boys :) ) and I added peas, green beans and mushrooms and chopped garlic. I substituted the water and bouillon for turkey stock I had made from my leftover turkey carcass. Instead of doubling the butter and milk I added a can of cream of chicken soup. I think it could have used more gravy, but my guys liked it as it was. Thank you Linda for such a yummy and hearty recipe!

Beef Stew VI

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2007
Great basic recipe, one can easily alter it to suit your own tastes. I added more veggies; corn, geen beans, peas, mushrooms, and cabbage. Also added garlic and some dried tarragon. Upped water about 2 cups and added more "Better Than Boullion". Very yummy, thanks for sharing!

Lower Fat Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
I made a batch of this today and it's very yummy. I made it as the recipe states, but I added 1/3 cup pecan chips, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, 1 teaspoon each of cinnamon and vanilla. It is very light and fluffy, more cake-like than bread-like. I think it could use more banana, that would make it moister and add more banana flavor, which it could use. Very easy to make, and quite tasty!

Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2004
This is very good. My family are all garlic-holics, so I used a lot more garlic. I had 9 breasts, and used about 1/4 cup of the store bought pre-chopped garlic from the jar. I added salt and pepper to the oil mixture and let the chicken marinate in the fridge for an hour. I also added garlic powder to the seasoned bread crumb mixture. Several other reviewers said that they had trouble with burning, so I turned the heat to 375. I checked them after 30 minutes and they weren't browning much, so I flipped them and raised the temp to 400. I think they should cook at a higher heat, if you want them brown and crispy. The family all gave a thumbs up, so I will add this to our family's menu. Next time I'll try cooking at the temp it calls for. I'd give this 5 stars for ease of preparation, and a solid 4 for taste. Thanks for a keeper!

Baked Omelet Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Just made this for the first time for Christmas breakfast, the whole family enjoyed it! I made substitutions to suit our tastes...I omitted the jalapenos, olives, and used fresh mushrooms as well as some green and red peppers (for a Christmassy look :) ). I also added a can of diced tomatoes, drained, and some cooked and crumbled turkey sausage and bacon. I used a little olive oil to saute the veggies instead of the butter. I also used reduced fat cheese. It was very yummy and easy to make, but next time I will add more cheese. Thanks for the recipe!

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
This was pretty good, I mixed mayo and olive oil with lemon pepper and garlic powder and spread that on the fish, then I added the bread crumbs and topped with grated parmesean. I didn't use the cornmeal because I had none. Although I sprayed my broiler pan with cooking spray I stillhad a problem with them sticking, so next time I will try buttering a baking dish and cooking it in that. Nice and easy dinner!

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2003
I am not a honey mustard fan, but some of my family are so I made this, and WOW! I thought it was great, most of my family loved it. I mixed a combo of prepared mustards, yellow, deli and spicy. It made a lot of sauce, but that was ok. I also used tenders, and a small baking dish. I only gave it 4 stars because my 11 year old thought it was gross, so unless your kid likes honey mustard, they probably won't like this. Easy and yummy!

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2004
This was just OK in my book. Perhaps I didn't marinate it long enough as I was pressed for time, but the flavor just wasn't that strong. Even with the extra garlic I added it still seemed bland. Also, it asks for WAY too much oil, I reduced the amount like others have suggested and it was still swimming in a big pool of oil. Yuck! My teenager liked it, the rest of us weren't impressed. Doubt I'll make it again.

Light Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2006
We just made these cookies, and they are indeed very soft and moist, maybe a little too much so. I had to bake mine a few minutes more because they were too goey. We added a little cocoa powder and extra chips to the batter to make it more chocolatey, maybe that made them too soft, I don't know. The taste was good, not fantastic.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
Not sure what happened, but mine came out dense, much more bread-like than cake-like. I wanted to make a cake for my son's birthday, so I was dissapointed in the result. The flavor was good, not great, so I'm not sure if I'd make it again.

Cheese and Chive Crisps

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2004
I recently went to a party where cheese crisps were served, they were so delicious I couldn't stop eating them, and had to have the recipe. I was hoping this was it, but it's not. The chives are too overpowering, and these don't have the spicy kick the ones at the party had. I even doubled the hot sauce and garlic to suit our tastes, but all you can taste is cheese and chives. Needs a bit more salt too. My first batch stuck to the pan, so I sprayed the pan after that. These are ok, not great, not terrible. A good jumping off point, with a little tweaking this could be 5 stars.

Awesome Eggplant Rollatine

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2004
I LOVE Eggplant Parmasean, so ths recipe sounded good. I made some changes, I used lowfat cheese, and soaked the eggplant in salted water, then rinsed it, to take out some of the bitterness. I started to follow the directions on frying, but didn't like the way they were coming out (spongy and greasy!), so I switched to the tried and true method of flour/egg/breadcrumbs. I had bought two large eggplants, and it was WAY too much, I think one large, or two sm/med. would be perfect. Luckily I had enough to double the filling recipe. Even though I added a little nutmeg and extra garlic, this still was on the bland side. You couldn't really taste the spinach. It was good, not great, and certainly not awesome. I layered it like a lasagna, and it was still a LOT of work. I can't even fathom rolling and stuffing! Probably won't make it again.
