Spaghetti Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2004
As someone who loves spaghetti squash, I was not impressed with this recipe. You definitely need to add salt to the squash but it still lacks flavor and I don't think sour cream is a good complement to the squash. This made for a weird tasting combination. It wasn't inedible but I can hardly imagine you would be looking forward to the leftovers.

Glazed Meatloaf II

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2004
I used 1 c. seasoned bread crumbs in place of the bread and added 2 tsp. Montreal Steak Blend (mix mainly of salt, pepper and garlic). The meatloaf was very tasty and very moist!

Grandma Flo's Shipwreck

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2003
While I thought this was pretty good, my husband LOVED it. He said it was surprisingly good because it doesn't look all that appetizing. The clincher for me is that it is such an easy recipe to put together (and likely have all ingredients on hand). I did brown ground beef first and baked only 50 minutes total. I also added some garlic salt to cooked beef (potato layer definately needs to be salted on its own) and shredded cheddar on top after it was done--just put back in oven long enough to melt cheese.

Easy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2002
I make banana bread frequently and have been trying several different recipes to find the perfect one. My search is over with this recipe. This banana bread is moist and tasty and very easy to make--I wouldn't change a thing.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2002
This banana bread was very moist, despite the fact that I didn't have enough bananas (I compensated for the remaining quantity with some applesauce). Five large bananas yielded less than 2 cups, mashed so I thought it would be helpful to note that this recipe would probably require 6 or 7 bananas.

Last Minute Chicken Dinner

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2002
This recipe is easy and delicious--and I even used the 98% fat free version of the cream of chicken soup because it's all I had on hand. This recipe was much better than I imagined it would be--my husband loved it too. I made delicious homemade style biscuits to go with it and eating pieces of biscuit mixed in with this meal reminded me of a chicken pot pie. The only thing I would mention is that it is not 4 large servings. It was fine for my family because my two children are preschool age and don't eat a lot. I imagine if you have four very hungry adults, you may want to increase the ingredients.

Black Forest Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2002
The sour cream topping was tasty, but that's about all good I can say about these cheesecakes. The vanilla wafer cookie did NOT form a crust as it was too small so it just made the cheesecake look strange. The chocolate taste of the cheesecake was very bitter. If not for the topping, these would have been inedible.

Beef and Bean Pot

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2002
I followed the recipe exactly except I substituted shredded cheddar cheese for the slices of American. I thought this was absolutely delicious. My husband thought it was very good, but a little too sweet (maybe next time I'll cut back on the brown sugar or not pack it down as much.) The crunchy tortilla chips on top made a good contrast to the beef and bean mixture--I think I'll add an extra 1/2 c. next time. Overall, it was a great recipe considering how easy it was to put together.

Lentil Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2002
This recipe was easy to make and very tasty (I did cut down the amount of chili powder to 1 tsp, because I don't like spicy food). However, I had to cook it for 1 full hour to get the lentils to be even slightly tender! I added the juice I had reserved from the canned tomatoes so that there would be enough liquid for the longer cooking time.

Sicilian Lentil Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2002
This sauce was a little too sweet for me--maybe if I eliminated the sugar it would be good because I love all the other ingredients.

Colorful Bulgur Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2002
I halved the amount of chili powder, and still could not even eat this salad. I am a big fan of bulgar wheat (tabouli salad is a favorite)but I had to through this away. It definitely needs some oil or something to tone down the citrus/chili powder flavor

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2002
This recipe is fairly tasty but has a custard-like consistency, which I do not care for. I even added 3 extra slices of bread. The sides and top, which got a little drier and crispier, were quite tasty though.

Rhinelander Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2002
I doubled the amount of lentils and tripled the amount of potatoes and there was still plenty of broth to handle the increase. This soup is very tasty, but at almost 13grams of fat per serving (that is 50% fat!), I would hardly call it "healthy" despite the healthy lentil and vegetable ingredients. For this reason, I decreased the bacon to 4 slices and added only 1 teaspoon of olive oil, instead of the 4 tablespoons called for. I still found the soup to be rich and tasty.

Popeye Fried Chicken

Reviewed: May 9, 2002
I thought this tasted NOTHING like Popeye's chicken, which my husband and I both love. Although it was edible, I can't say I enjoyed the taste of this chicken. Also, the coating did not stay of the chicken very well even though I followed the recipe instructions to dip into the dry mixture a second time. I will not bother making this again.

Baked Ziti IV

Reviewed: May 9, 2002
This is DELICIOUS! I grew up eating homemade Italian food so I was a little skeptical of eating baked ziti made with sour cream and cottage cheese but it's delicious and so easy to put together. I did use my own homemade meat sauce and substituted an equal amount of mozzarella for the provolone layer because I don't like provolone cheese. I will always use this recipe to make baked ziti from now on.

Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2002
This recipe is pretty good,but nothing to write home about. It definitely needs salt or some other seasoning. I salted the chicken before coating it and it still seemed a little bland. I think cheddar cheese has a strange taste to it when it is baked like this. Still it is a relatively fast dinner idea that is a little different and very easy to make.

Peanut Butter Balls III

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2002
The taste of these peanut butter balls is excellent. My husband will insist on seeing them every year at Christmas. They are easy but rather time consuming to roll and then dip so many balls. Just a note--I had to use almost twice as much chocolate to cover all the balls. Maybe because I made my balls on the small side.
