Winter Energy Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2008
We loved this, including the kids(age 3 & 6). I did have to make some substitutions & it is well suited for some lightening up using some light margaring/apple sauce & egg beaters - the peanut butter ensures it doesn't get get a styrofoam texture using too many light ingredented. Subbed honey for molasses & fiber 1 cereal for wheat germ based on what I had on hand.

Pasties II

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
yum! I cheated & used pre-made pie crusts, but these were great. My kids & husband liked them & it's not usual that I find something everyone likes! We served with either ketchup or beef gravy & I used a mix of red & yellow potatoes.

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
pretty good. I took another reviewer's advice & put prepared rice-a-roni on the bottom before adding the rest. I didn't use the bread crumbs. My kids liked it.

Irish Cream Truffle Fudge

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2007
This recipe is great! I make it for our church bake sale & it sells out quick. One note - gave the recipe to someone who isn't familiar with liquor & she used Irish Whiskey -- talk about pure alcohol flavor!

Best Breakfast Cookie

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
I've been looking for a home made version of granola bars for my kids & this is it! These were surprisingly good, although I had to tweak the recipe with what I had on-hand - dried cherries in place of raisins, almonds for the walnuts, egg beaters instead of egg whites, whole wheat flour, and blackberry jam for the prune puree. I also replaced a bit of flour with 10 grain breakfast cereal. My 2 & 7 year old liked these even though they were ugly (the jam made them greyish).

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2007
I've made it as is or tweaked it and it turned out great. The best & healthiest version adds a can of drained corn, uses 1 cup of sharp cheese & subs fat free sour cream for the soup and ground turkey for the beef.

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
Good as is, but you can easily change out the veggies (broccoli is good) and add lots more spinach than this calls for. My PICKY 7 year old ate this and then asked for leftovers the next night. (I make my own low-fat pesto & freeze it and used whole wheat pasta)

Taco Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
I used this as a guide & really like the seasonings in the tomato sauce & salsa in the beans. Add what you like after baking (cilantro, crushed chips, lettuce, etc) and season to your own tastes. (Also made a whole wheat dough to make it better for my family)

Cuban Black Beans II

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
Very good. Based on other reviews & what I ate a cuban restaurant, I left out the tomato paste and sugar. Even my picky 7 year old liked them. I'm not a fan of green bell peppers, but they blend well once cooked in this recipe. Different than our normal black beans & rice with cumin/cilantro from Allrecipes.

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2005
OK but nothing special - kids didn't like it & I found the sesame oil a little overpowering.

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
This was great, although a lot of work to make, and expensive with the tenderloin. We doubled the gravy & froze it for later use.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
We didn't use the beer (just to lighten it up), and didn't do it in the slow cooker since we had some canned chicken. A great quick dinner - frying the onions first makes a big difference in the taste. (We've even added celery & carrot to get the kids eating more veggies.)

Kay's Shortbread

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
Very easy. Gave some slices to a coworker who doesn't like super sweet desserts, and she was impressed I had never made it before.

Mulligatawny Soup II

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2005
This was pretty close to what we get at our Indian restaurant. I wasn't so sure about the apple, but it's great.

Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2005
Pretty good - not overly sweet. A sprinkling of sugar on top before baking would be good.

Round Steak Sauerbraten

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2005
I followed some other reviewers & cooked meat with fresh onion first. Also tossed meat in flour so that the sauce would thicken up. We all loved it, even the 3 & 5 year olds.
