Irish Soda Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2002
Not really Irish Soda Bread but very good and easy. I used low fat sour cream and it came out just great.

Easy Mushroom Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2002
Very easy and very tasty. I used low sodium chicken broth (since it was being served with chicken) and did not add any butter or margarine at all. It was done in exactly 1 hour as the recipe states. Will surely make this again.

Elaine's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2003
What great cookies. Very easy and delicious. I added an extra half cup of peanut butter but it still wasn't peanutty enough for me. I'll try more next time. Thanks for the great recipe.

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2003
Excellent! I used shrimp but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Just got home from a holiday potluck where the salad received rave reviews. I'll make this again.

Savory Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 11, 2004
Yummy recipe. I followed some reviewers suggestions and made a couple of changes. I browned the pork chops and put them on a bed of thinly sliced onions but otherwise followed the directions. When it was done, I put the juices, apples & onion in a sauce pan and recuced for a few minutes. I will definitly make this again

Cashew Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2004
Company good! I followed the recipe exactly making sure I chopped the cashews very fine. I baked it on a broiler pan as someone suggested but it still came out rather gooey on the bottom. Next time I won't waste the cashews on the bottom and I'll add a little more curry seasoning. Otherwise--yum, yum!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2004
This is the best recipe I've found on this site. I took the advice of previous reviewers and used corn tortillas and cream of chicken soup. I substituted a crushed garlic clove for the garlic powder and added 1/2 tsp chili powder and 1 tsp cumin. Otherwise I followed the recipe. Even picky DS liked it. Thanks for the great recipe.

Iced Mocha Latte

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2004
This would be 5 star if you used a richer milk, but with the non fat it is very good. I didn't think 1 tsp of coffee crystals would be enough but it was for me. I tried it with and without the cinnamon and prefer without. This will save me lots of trips to Starbucks and therefore lots of $$$! Thanks for the great recipe.

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2004
These were very good. I used margarine & non fat milk, cut the recipe in half and baked them in my cheapie toaster oven. I was careful about the amount of milk I used as suggested by other reviewers, but I could have used less I think because the biscuits were pretty heavy. They raised wonderfully in the oven, but "deflated" a little when taken out. But all in all very good. Thanks for the recipe.

Eggnog Quick Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
Keeping in mind all the discussion on moistness, I tried the following: increased the eggnog by 1/4 cup and decreased the flour by 1/4 cup. I used dark rum and 1 tsp of nutmeg. I got a moist spongy loaf that didn't taste at all like eggnog. It wasn't bad, just not what I was hoping for. I'll keep working on it because I think there is hope here for something really good.

Chicken Livers with Gorgonzola Polenta

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2005
I made the polenta again tonight with the following changes: double the amount of chicken broth; add 2 TBS butter; substitute parmesan cheese for the gorgonzola. This version got a 5 star reception from DH who is not a big polenta fan. This makes a very nice soft polenta.

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2005
I used bonless country style ribs (they were on sale ;), used only 1/3 cup low sodium soy sauce and eliminated the cilantro (not a big fan). The ribs came out great--very rich and not too salty. I used the left overs to make enchiladas--very tasty. Thanks for the great recipe.

Seafood Sandwich

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2005
This recipe really screamed out for celery so I added a couple of tablespoons finely chopped. The result was a nice seafood salad that was overpowered by the flavor of the hot dog buns I used. I stuffed a tomato with the leftovers and got a much tastier dish. DH complained that his sandwiches didn't have much flavor but loved the stuffed tomato. Next time I'll add a little more onion and seasoning (used Seafood Magic since I didn't have Old Bay). Basically this is a great recipe--thanks.

Bucket Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
I scaled this down for two, added a small can of kidney beans and added a little cumin to the ranch dressing. My husband (who hates ranch dressing) loved it. This is a great recipe that I'll be making again. Thanks.

Yankee Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2006
I sent this with DH today for a company picnic and he came home with requests for copies of the recipe, so I guess it was a hit. I made only half a recipe, which was plenty and replaced the cherries with strawberries. I will make it again for our annual Memorial Day BBQ and add more fruit. Thanks for the great recipe.

Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
I would give this more stars if I could. I used a 1.25 package of ground turkey and adjusted the seasonings accordingly--sorry I can't give you the exact amts but I did use the whole 4 oz of blue cheese. Made 6 patties and froze 3. The first 3 were cooked on the George Foreman grill and the last 3 just pan fried. They were great both ways. Due to the high cost of chives at my market, I think I'll try green onions or finely chopped red onion next time. Thanks for the great recipe!

Tangy Grilled Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
I used what I had which was no honey and no dijon mustard. I used French's honey mustard, added soy sauce and replaced the salt with garlic salt and onion salt. It has been so hot that I grilled this at 8:00 a.m. and then refrigerated it. It was great cold. I took the left over marinade, boiled it for 10 minutes and added a little tomato based bbq sauce and served it over the meat and brown rice. I'll try it again when I have all the right stuff.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2006
I used turkey cutlets (no need to pound thin; only took 20 min to cook) and seasoned bread crumbs. I would give it a 5 but the dish was so greasy. Next time I think I'll brush just the tops of the cutlets with the garlic butter and press the bread crumb/cheese mixture on top. Also, couldn't taste the cheddar cheese at all so I think I'll just use the parmesan. Thanks for the recipe.

Sausage Meatball Sub

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
I was looking for a recipe for meatballs using only Italian sausage so I tried this one. Exactly what I was looking for. I didn't make sandwiches with them but put them in a ravioli casserole. They did the trick.
