Cheesy Squash and Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
I didn't care for it because it was mushy & soggy, but my husband and kids gobbled it up; that's why I give it four stars. If I make it again, I'll try sauteeing the veggies instead of boiling and add another egg.

Italian Spinach Sausage Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
I had high expectations for this after reading all the rave reviews, but I made it exactly as written and it didn't have much flavor. My 7-year-old was the first to say, "It doesn't taste like anything," and I agreed. It wasn't terrible, but if I make it again I'll be sure to crush some garlic in there and maybe add some Italian seasoning and/or some tomato pieces with the seeds squeezed out.

Pasta e Fagioli a la Chez Ivano

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
Meh. I had such high hopes after reading all the rave reviews, but this soup had no flavor until I added bouillon, a cup of red wine, more fresh garlic and garlic powder, more herbs and some salsa, but something was still missing. Luckily, parmesan helps anything taste better, so my family got through it.

Chicken Jalfrezi

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
Excellent! And not too labor intensive. Even my 22-month old devoured his portion. This will be a regular at my house.

Feta Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2005
I took one reviewer's advice and whirled the feta, fresh basil leaves, parmesan cheese and bread crumbs in a food processor, and I also put fresh tomato slices in with the stuffing before baking. I also made the assembly easier by pounding the breasts, laying the stuffing on one breast, and piling another breast on top. Then, when it was done, I just cut individual portions. YUM!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
Got tons of compliments, but it was a little too sweet for me. Next time I'll reduce the sugar (and fat) by half.

Garden Basket Pasta with Clam Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2003
It was wonderfully healthy and light but not very "clammy." We could barely find the clams in all the sauce. Next time I'll double the clams and reduce the liquid (to add flavor but keep the moisture the same). Good one.

Fish Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2003
Wow... after all the rave reviews, I thought this chowder was boring and bland. What was everyone raving about? I doctored it up with some worcestershire sauce, a shot of sherry, a little thyme, marjoram, a bay leaf, and a lot more Old Bay, and then it was pretty good.

Chicken Paprikash II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2003
yum yum. One of the best recipes I've tried on this site. I used bone-in (but skinless) breasts, thighs and legs, which made it easy and low fat but also very flavorful.

Linguine with Seafood and Sundried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2003
One cup of fat is completely out of control, so I reduced it to 4T altogether (half butter, half oil) and it still tasted great! I also thickened the sauce a bit with cornstarch and doubled both the sun-dried tomatoes and the parsley. I found that the best way to chop sun-dried tomatoes is with a strong pair kitchen scissors. Then soak them in boiling water for 15 minutes.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2002
Yum! What a great flavor. I will make this again and again! Even 1/2 the recipe makes a lot, so I'll make 1/4 next time.

Confetti Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2002
Great flavor. I reduced the oil to 2 T and the rice to 2 cups, so it was lighter but had more chicken per bite. I served it outside on the deck with chips and salsa and corn on the cob. It was a lovely, refreshing summer meal.

Grilled Chicken Salad with Seasonal Fruit

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2002
Delicious. There's no need to make a full recipe of dressing. I made a half recipe (also reducing the sugar by another half) and it was more than enough. I used two of those ready-to-eat bags of mixed greens, and tossed them in the dressing before putting them on the plate. It was so healthy-tasting and fun. Yum.

Honey Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2002
This was probably meant for dessert, but I ate it for breakfast! yum yum. 1/3 cup of honey was plenty of sweetness for me, and I may reduce it even more next time.

Simple Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2002
I guess it was a little too "simple" for me. I ended up adding a couple tablespoons of finely dice red onion, parsley and some garlic powder, then some fresh ground pepper and some more olive oil. I also recommend sifting out the dehydrated veggies from the soup mix and just using the powdered part.

Chicken with Couscous

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2002
Hm. This was ok after I added some more cornstarch, and bouillon and salt (before that, it was runny and had no flavor except the "sizzle" of the jalapeno). Still, I like the concept. Maybe some garlic or herbs would make it better. I wonder if everyone else "doctored" the recipe before they wrote their reviews...

Linguine with Clams and Porcini Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2002
Yum! We both loved it. The result is actually like a rich (but not heavy) garlicky clam soup, so I dished out the pasta in big, deep pasta bowls (plates are impossible) and poured the clam concoction over the pasta in each bowl. It was elegant but fun to eat the clams out of the shell and twirl the pasta with a fork and spoon between sips of savory broth. This is a keeper!

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2002
terrrrific! The cold leftovers were just as good as the warm version the night before. I didn't fool with wrapping the fish in foil before baking; I just covered the marinating dish and baked the whole thing. It was wonderfully moist and flavorful. My guy thought so too.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2002
I cut the butter and oil in half, and it was still good. All that fat isn't necessary.

Apple Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2002
yummmm. Somehow it gets sweeter the second day, so I'll put a little less sugar in next time.
