Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
This needs just one more flavor to be perfect, but my palate is not refined enough to identify it. But when I consider the effort required, I have to give it 5 stars. We keep cooked shrimp in the freezer, so this was done no time. I rinsed the shrimp, but didn't thaw them before adding them to the sauce to avoid getting them too tough. I took the advice of other reviewers and doubled the sauce. I also added about 1.5 cups of red and green peppers with onions from the freezer. Hubby and I loved this!

Pumpkin Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This was delicious! I wanted to do a gingersnap crust, but the weird store near my house didn't have any and I was in a hurry, so I used cinnamon graham crackers for the crumbs and mixed with ground ginger. I also skipped the mace because I didn't have it and added nutmeg and doubled the cinnamon. I could not stop eating this and DH and sister loved it, too. A definite keeper! EDIT: I tried this again and still cannot keep it from cracking (tried water bath, cooling it in the oven, cooking on a lower temp), BUT I found the nut topping below on another site and now my cheescake is gorgeous! Nut Topping: 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar 1/4 cup butter 1/4 cup whipping cream 1 cup chopped toasted pecans In a small heavy saucepan over low heat, combine brown sugar and butter; stir until sugar dissolves. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil; remove from heat and mix in whipping cream and pecans. Pour hot topping over baked cheesecake.

Cheddar Turkey Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
This was fine. I would have liked a little more flavor, but it was pretty easy to prepare. I would add a little more salt next time or perhaps some grated sharp cheddar. I would only make it again if I was trying to use up the ingredients.

Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I made these with modifications: started with 1 cup leftover mashed sweet potato, subbed 1 and 1/4 cup whole wheat flour for the flour, added 1/2 cup of milk for the consistency, subbed vegetable oil for butter because I realized I forgot it after I started cooking the pancakes, added 1 heaping tablespoon of sugar, added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, and added 1/4 cup of flaxseed meal to add some hidden fiber. They smelled awesome and tasted great...although I didn't really taste the potato very strongly.

Alyson's Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
I made this for Thanksgiving. My family loved it, including my "vegetarian" sister who doesn't eat many vegetables. (Don't ask.) It was easy and tasty!

Summer Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
We love this! I marinated my zucchini in olive oil, minced garlic, and lemon, then sauteed it to reduce the liquid during baking. I have also grilled strips of zucchini on my Foreman grill the same way.

Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2008
Excellent! I cut the potatoes into fries per some of the other reviews, sprayed them with cooking spray, and shook them in a bag with the spices. I used 3 potatoes and a double recipe of the spices. I baked them in two batches at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. The heat was just right for us. I still have a gentle tingle on my tongue, but no pain. Hubby loved them! He said, "Ummm...girl...you can cook!"

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
EASY! I used salsa instead of opening tomato sauce and added more cheese for our preference. Loved it!

Lime Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
I made these today for lunch to use some overcooked lemon garlic tilapia from another recipe. My husband and I both enjoyed them, and with the fish already cooked, it was a super fast lunch. I pulled the fish apart with a fork, tossed it with lime juice and reheated in the microwave. I made the sauce upping the hot sauce about 2 tablespoons of Texas Pete because it's what we had and not as hot as some other hot sauces. We didn't have lettuce or tomatoes, but added chopped sweet red bell peppers and cheese (because we like it). I will definitely make this again, especially if I overcook more fish.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
This was okay to us, but not exceptional. I would add more butter or maybe olive oil next time. I baked 20 minutes and it was too dry. Definitely watch the time on this one.

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
I liked this fine, but did not taste the banana as much as I have in other recipes, given that they were super ripe (peel fell apart as I pulled it). I meant to use baking powder instead soda, per some of the other reviews, but I forgot, and it still seemed fine to me. Next time, I would add some flax meal to boost the fiber.

Hot Italian Giardiniera

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
I never heard of giardiniera before, but found this recipe while looking for a way to use up some veggies from a shower tray. This was awesome! I like it on a wrap with turkey pepperoni and provolone.

Makeover Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
We enjoyed these. Just FYI, for others who are not familiar, the batter is really thick and has more fruit/carrots/nuts than muffin...which is fine, I just didn't anticipate it and was afraid I did something wrong when I got ready to bake. Maybe I did, but they were still good! I also only had 12 muffin cups, so I baked the rest of the batter in the bottom of my loaf pan for about 10 extra minutes and cut it into bars.

Chicken Salsa Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
I've made this before (from another recipe) with two additions that make it awesome - a can of drained corn and sliced black olives. The sweetness of the corn is a nice contrast to the salsa.

Cantaloupe Bread with Praline Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
I made this last night without the glaze. We loved it. My cantaloupe was the sweetest I've ever had, so I probably could have cut the sugar, but this is definite winner.

Veggie Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
Yum! I did this on a sundried tomato wrap to cut carbs. I ate it yesterday for dinner, ate another small helping after dinner, ate it again today for a snack, and made my husband eat it for his snack. The next time I entertain, I may roll this in a wrap and slice it for some colorful and tasty pinwheel appetizers. I don't even like veggies, but I loved this. The cream mixture is delicious!!

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
I loved this, but I don't normally like the texture of flan, custard etc. This was more "cheesecakey", therefore right up my alley. I was worried about not being able to spread the carmelized sugar enough, but it spread out when cooked. My guest enjoyed adding some fresh strawberries that happened to be on the table as well.

Mexican Halibut Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
We did this with tilapia and really enjoyed it...despite the fact that I was rushing and put the melted butter in the sauce, rather than in the baking dish. I also subbed a little olive oil for garlic oil, since I didn't have it. It went well with Black Beans and Rice (by Bonnie Baumgardner) from this site. We'll definitely have this again!

Crunchy Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2007
Per earlier reviews, I halved the lemon juice and apple (used golden delicious), and added about 1/4 cup crushed pineapple and more turkey. We like sweet and savory (as opposed to sour or tart) and it was perfect in a pita pocket. I think the doubling of the sauce is strictly a personal preference. We like only enough sauce to hold the other ingredients together, so I did not double and felt was juicier than I would prefer.
