Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
Great muffins, I love the texture. My one complaint is that I do not care for the topping, makes them more like a cupcake because there is so much sweet topping.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
This was very good, but extremely sweet and that's why I'm gving it 4 stars. Very easy to make, especially with the store bought crust. Maybe some homemade whipped cream with little or no sugar would be nice to balance the sweetness.

Avocado and Tuna Tapas

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This was really good - I didn't have bellpepper so I skipped that and I diced the avocado and mixed it all together. It was a great lunch - I halved the recipe and ate that for lunch which wasn't really two portions, it seemed just right for lunch for one. I also added a sprinkle of Old Bay, as others suggested, and that was very good.

French Bread Rolls to Die For

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
Really delicious. I doubled the salt and they weren't salty in the least - def. would have been bland with less. I had a problem with the instructions about covering the rising rolls with a damp cloth - my rolls stuck to the fabric and deflated when I removed the towel :( I had to let them rise a 3rd time. Lastly, I baked for 18 minutes at 375 and they were perfectly cooked. Excellent warm out of the oven with salted butter... Mmmm

Mardi Gras King Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
Basically, this tasted like a cinnamon roll. The cake sure looked beautiful and was a big hit at our New Orleans Saints Super Bowl party!! Having said that, it was really dry. I did make it the day before and let it sit overnight, but covered in a cake dish. So maybe that's how it got so dry. I'm going to make another one, but fill it with cherry pie filling and see how that turns out.

Black-Eyed Pea Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
A cup of Italian dressing is way too much and I'm going to have to drain this in a colander before I serve it tomorrow. The black eyed peas are litterally swimming in a bowl of liquid. Otherwise, it'd be good. I recommend using only 1/2 of a cup or less of the dressing and adding more if necessary.

Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
This would probably be good if it wasn't SO salty! I didn't add the celery salt since I don't have any (thank God) as there is already so much salt. Now I have a jar of this mix. If I ever use it up and am tempted to try this recipe again, I'll only add 2 teaspoons of salt and use garlic powder instead of garlic salt.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
I didn't really care for this because the marinade is extremely strong and 30 minutes in it made the salmon only taste like teriyaki.

Easy Baked Tilapia

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2010
Yummy! I really don't care for the flavor of tilapia so I used white roughy instead and it was delicious! I did not add any frozen veggies, but used all the seasonings as indicated and the fish was delicious. I made a simple tartar sauce on the side with mayo, lemon juice and diced dill pickles.

Inside Out Ravioli I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
Delicious! It made exactly two 6"x8" dishes. I baked one of them for 25 minutes at 350 and it was perfect. Really, really good. The one thing is that I think the quantity of spaghetti sauce at 16 ounces is a mistake. I looked and looked at the grocery store but I didn't find any 16 oz jars, only 26 oz jars... that and the complaints from other users that this dish was dry leads me to believe the author meant 26 oz not 16. So I used a whole 26 oz jar of spaghetti sauce and it was perfect, not too saucey and not dry at all. Just right. I froze the other 6x8" dish and will reheat it for dinner in a few weeks. My husband, who is not a very big pasta fan, thought it was delicious.

Tofu Tacos I

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
Oh My God, these are so delicious! I fried corn tortillas for the shells and pressed the tofu for about 15 minutes between 2 plates. I followed the recipe almost exactly except I couldn't find any flavored tofu so I used plain. I decided to try to include some tofu meals into our diet and this is the first recipe I tried. These tacos are so, so, so good - will definitely be making these again. The avocado and the cheddar cheese add lots of flavor.

Cajun Crab Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
Pretty good base recipe. I added a couple diced yukon gold's and used whole milk because I didn't have cream. I found the end result pretty plain so I added 3 or 4 teaspoons of Old Bay, a little extra cayenne and the crab liquid. After his first bite my husband said "Gordon Ramsay would approve" hahaha :) I also served this with crusty french bread. Yum! Thanks for the recipe... one of the only soup recipes my husband has liked.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
These were just OK. There's something weird about cooking peppers in the crockpot all day - I thought it was just bellpeppers, but clearly it's jalapenos, too. They give off a funky flavor that permiates every bite. If it wasn't for that, I'd give this 4 stars as it was overall a bit bland otherwise. I will defnitely use this method again, but next time I'll add only salt and water and refry the cooked beans with diced jalapeno and finely minced onion and garlic. Thanks for the inspiration and I will continue to make beans from scratch instead of over paying for the canned kind.

Caprese Appetizer

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Delicious! I bought boconccini (little fresh mozzarella balls) and I marinated them for 2 days in garlic powder, dried basil and oregano and salt and pepper. I then halved them and assembled them with one tomato a strip of fresh basil folded in half, sandwiched between the cheese and tomato. Soooo good and they were all eaten in a matter of minutes and there were only 5 of us eating!

Chocolate Cavity Maker Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
Excellent!! Made exactly as written except the cake packages apparently have shrunken a little as I could only find 18.25 oz boxes. I have a 9" bundt pan so I baked the rest of the batter in a little 3"x5" pan which we snacked on when it was hot out of the oven. I also used oil and cocoa powder to prep the pan. I made this cake for my husbands birthday and filled the center cavity with slice strawberries and served with vanilla ice cream. It was a huge hit with him and our friends. The mini chocolate chips melt into delicious gooey chocolate pockets which is really great. I'm glad I didn't leave out the mini chips because they're an integral component of the recipe. I highly recommend this to everyone and I would like to try it will all vanilla products and serve it with mixed fresh berries and whipped cream. Mmmm can't wait.

PHILLY Mini Potato Bites

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
These are pretty tasty and were well received. I made 3 appetizers though and the others were all eaten but there were left overs of this one. Most people commented on how good they were. If I make them again, I'll broil them before topping with the green onions.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2010
Really good flavor but not enough sauce. I shrunk it down to 3 servings and it wasn't enough for the two of us even with lots of broccoli and chow mein noodles. If I make it again, I'll still use 12 oz. of shrimp but double the sauce and add bamboo shoots.

Bread Pudding III

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
This was really, really delicious and so simple to make. I was planning on making a New Orleans bread pudding souffle but got lazy (and too full) on Thanksgiving so instead I snacked on it for a few days after thanksgiving. Especially good with coffee!

Hot Spiced Cider

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
This was a big hit at work. I served it with Downeast Maine Pumpkin bread and all of my coworkers were complementing both.
