Chicken Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2002
Added some jalepeno, fresh onion, red and green peppers, and cilantro to the pan after chicken had simmered for a few minutes. It gave it some kick and a great cilantro flavor- even better the next day! If no sour cream is on hand cream cheese is just as tasty!

Banana Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2002
We added a package of vanilla instant pudding mix and 1/2 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup milk to the batter for added moistness. Cut down the oil to 1 TBSP. Added 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon and 1/2 cup rolled oats. Also put in about 1 and 1/2 cups of mashed banana. Baked in our oven at 350 for 23 minutes. Delish! Would be great with mini chocolate chips!

Pan Seared Red Snapper

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2002
This was very good and worthy of making again. The lemon sauce was very tangy. Salt and pepper needs to be added to taste, and perhaps a little cayenne or cajun spice might go well.

Banana Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2002
This is the recipe I was looking for, not for banana cake but for zucchini cake! Use a package of lemon or vanilla pudding and add 2 cups of shredded zucchini, 1/2 to 1 tsp cinnamon, and a dash of vanilla if you wish. I also used applesauce instead of the oil and used 4 egg whites and 2 eggs instead of four whole eggs to cut down on fat. Very moist, and very delicious!

Angel's Yummy Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2002
I used 5 plum tomatoes, about 1/4 red onion, 1/2 tsp dry basil, 1/2 tsp minced fresh garlic, a dash of oregano, and topped finished brushetta with feta cheese crumbles. Original recipe has too much onion for our taste.

Bruschetta I

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2002
I use less onion add minced garlic to the bruschetta instead of rubbing it on the bread. Using dried basil works fine. I always add some salt to taste. For an extra treat, serve on top of homemade garlic bread or top with a little feta cheese or mozerella. Mmmmm....

Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2002
This had a very strong taste to it and had a chewy crust. It was too heavy and not what I was looking for. I prefer a lighter, more cake-like texture.

Acapulco Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2002
I added zing to this recipe by changing it up a bit. I didn't add more chili powder after cooking the chicken. After cooking the onion and bell pepper with 1-2 tsp diced garlic and 1 tsp ground ginger, I added 2 chopped roma tomatoes, 1/2 cup medium salsa, 1/2 cup water, a sprinkle or two of cinnamon (you'll be surprised how a little adds a lot of flavor!), salt, pepper, and added 1/8 cup finely chopped canned jalepeno slices. I then added the spiced chicken and heated thoroughly, allowing the liquid to form a "sauce". After cooking, I removed from heat and stirred in 1/4 cup of freshly torn cilantro. Excellent!

Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2002
I tried putting the oatmeal in the blender first to give it a smoother texture. Added soy sauce, a boullion cube, and some fresh parmesan as well as some italian seasoning and celery salt. Flavor was good but the mix really needed to lose more moisture before cooking.

Bacon Wrapped Pesto Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
tasty chicken. I had to put it on a baking sheet under the broiler for a few minutes to get the bacon crisper. Made fresh pesto as well. Don't forget the salt and pepper for seasoning..even with the pesto it still needs it.

Overnight Raisin Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2002
I made it more fat-friendly and substituted apple butter for the oil- subbed real maple syrup for added sugar, also had no baking powder or baking salt on hand and it came out fine! Great served with sliced bananas and real maple syrup on top.

Thai Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2003
Excellent recipe! I doubled the sauce and added a rounded tablespoon of sugar to it to sweeten it up. I also used 1 tsp of powdered ginger instead of fresh. The sauce has a very strong flavor, so a little goes a long way over fluffy jasmine rice. MMMMmmm.

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2002
Excellent! I halved the recipe. I used one stalk of celery, one carrot, 1/2 lg. onion, 1/2 cup chopped red pepper, one potato, and 1.5 lbs of chicken breast cut up. I halved the spices and it was spicy enough! Made 1/2 cup of homemade peanut butter and skipped the garbanzos altogether. Great over rice! I have been making this recipe for years now, just made it again 5/10/2010. Yum!

Alaskan Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2002
I didn't have any potatoes handy so I put in mashed potato flakes at the end of cooking...it worked well. I opted for celery salt since I had no celery on hand, either. Not bad!

Zucchini Bisque

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
I chopped my zucchini and used fresh basil as well. I used a whole medium one (probably 4 + cups of zucchini). Fill the pot up, it all cooks down and releases liquids anyway. I only used half the butter with the onions, and omitted the cream in the second batch. (doesn't seem to need extra fat, it's good as is) Also, I added some ground cayenne pepper and serve it over plain white rice. Great way to use up those plentiful zucchinis! I am making several batches and freezing them to enjoy later. Also good with croutons and parmesan cheese on top.

Chicken Enchilada Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2002
I didn't have the corn tortillas so the soup was much thinner than it should have been. Added some extra spices- cumin and chili powder to kick up the flavor. Fresh chopped green pepper, cheddar cheese, and tortilla chips were an excellent topping.

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
awesome!!!! thanks. Used croutons, too...it's easier! For those of you who had trouble caramelizing onions on the stove top...you can do it in the crock pot. Use one pound of onions and two tablespoons of butter per quart in your crock pot. (So a six quart crock pot can caramelize six pounds of onions with 12 tablespoons of butter) Pile onions into crock pot, add butter to the top, stir after a few hours and leave on low overnight. http://thepioneerwoman.com/tasty-kitchen/recipes/canning/caramelized-crock-pot-onions/)

Pat's Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
These were just what I was looking for, a flat, doughy, noodle-like dumpling just like Grandma used to make! Excellent in my chicken and dumplings. Used 3/4 cup of water, butter instead of shortening, and I threw it in my food processor to make it easy to mix. Thanks!

Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2003
Very easy and creamy. Stirring in the egg works best in a single batch, but my double batch came out nicely as well. Great way to use up leftover chinese white rice. Added more sugar to suit my pop's tastes....the bowl was gone by morning!

Beef Burgundy I

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2003
I used this recipe for venison loins instead of beef- it came out so tender and the gravy was very flavorful. I had a lot of extra liquid so I combined some flour paste into it to thicken it up a bit. I served it over rice, but instead I think this would have made great hot open faced sandwiches accompanied with mashed potatoes and peas. It tasted like a rich pot roast and gravy to me, but without all the fat from beef. Will make this again!
