Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2003
I'm going to host a baby shower this coming Sunday, so I wanted to test out this recipe before the actual day and it was alright, not as great as everyone says. The vegetable medley was wonderful though, smelled great, but I felt the cream cheese didn't compliment it very well. The idea is great however, I might try experimenting with this in the future, as for the babyshower, I'll keep on looking for other appetizers.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2003
Wow, these made 4 HUGE muffins! They tasted wonderful. I read reviews and some complained the muffin itself wasn't sweet enough, so I increased the sugar to 1 cup and only made 1/2 of the sugar topping (which was plenty). As for adding more blueberries, I wouldn't recommend it, I used 1 cup as stated and it was A LOT. Next time, I would only use 3/4 cup of berries, that way, I won't be overwhelmed by the berries.

Alice Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2003
Great chicken! For a super quick meal, I used chicken wings and drumsticks, which I just lightly coated with the sauce and seared them on the pan. Then I topped it off with the cheese and some chopped green onions for color, which I broiled. Turned out excellent even w/o the bacon and mushroom. Served these with spinach linguine with homemade honeymustard sauce, everyone loved it!

Homemade Tomato Sauce II

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2003
I hate to give this a 3, but I can't say if it was really good or not because I used this in a recipe which was disgusting. But it was easy.

Mexican Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2003
Everyone loved this, although some complained it was a little too spicy. I thought the spicyness was fine, but there was too much creamcheese. I would halve it next time and the butter too. I think this would be a great idea for a spread for corn on the cob as well; maybe next time, I'll cream the cheese, jalepeno and salt and spread it on the cob, sounds tasty!

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2003
OMG! This is AWESOME! I really don't like salads that much, but this one sounded so great, so I decided to give it a try, glad I did, I ate 2 servings! I was out of peanut butter, so I made some from scratch (roasted peanuts+peanut oil) and used leftover shredded chicken from last nights dinner. I also left out the carrots, but I sauteed some thinly sliced onions and tomatoes to add color and added flavor. Also, I added more oil to the dressing to thin it out and fried the wonton. Everyone loved this! Will be making again, thanks a lot!

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2003
Wonderful dish Wendy! So simple, yet tasty! Only changes I made were to add more garlic, that's it! I wasn't so sure about the hot pepper sauce though. I was positive you didn't mean the mexican version or but I didn't know what other hot sauce there was. Then I found the Vietnamese garlic chili sauce and added that in and it was delicious, gave it that extra oomph. You definitely need the chili sauce though, w/o it, it's too bland. Thanks for sharing, everyone loved it.

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2003
I wasn't a big fan of this, although some of my guest LOVED it and others thought it was good, but not great. Anyhow, I marinated this for two days, sub. the sherry for red wine vinegar and reduced the cinnamon (wanted to be safe, since it really didn't sound appealing on meat). I didn't grill it, I just browned the sides and baked it in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 mins. Pork was tender and sweet and I really don't like sweet meat. Anyhow, I'll just pass this recipe along to the guest that loved it; as for me, I won't make next time.

Baked French Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2003
This was very sweet. It smelled wonderful while cooking, but it was ok. I was out of milk, so I used water and I couldn't tell the difference. I felt that the light corn syrup would make it very sweet, so I left that out, but turns out, it was still sweet even w/o the syrup! Anyhow, I wouldn't make this again. The classic french toast recipe on martha stewarts site is much better (w/ almost identical ingredients) and always recieves rave reviews.

Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2003
The best beef stew we've ever had! I've made many stews, so I know what we like and dislike in it. I omitted the worchestire sauce because it just overpowers the other flavors and we really don't care for it. I used 1/2 water & 1/2 beef broth. I also seasoned the meat/flour with blk pepper, seasoning salt, garlic powder, paprika, and onion powder then saved the leftover flour to thicken the stew with. After browning the meat, I added enough water and scraped up the bits on the bottom of the pan for added flavor, then added all the broth & water, onions and celery. For added flavor, I added thyme, rosemary, extra bay leaf and extra seasonings. I suggest when you cut up the beef, potatoes and carrots, try to make them all the same sizes and not so big. At the last hr, added the veggies, corn & peas and last minute, added the leftover seasoned flour (which was mixed w/h20 so it doesn't get lumpy when added to the hot stew). Served this with french bread and everyone loved it! This will now be our staple beef stew. Thanks

Giant Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2003
These cookies sure are giant, but they're too greasy, too thin and too hard! I only made half the batch and all the cookies flattened to a thin paper so it covered the whole cookie sheet, only thing that was 3-d still were the chips itself! I still have 1/2 the other batch, I might try adding more flour to try to save it, but I'm definitely not trying this again.

Italian Spaghetti Sauce with Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2003
I only made the meatballs and it was great! I added two chopped shallots to the meat mixture, garlic powder, onion salt, seasoning salt and a dash of worchestire sauce. I suggest you oil your hands, that way when you roll them into balls, it's not sticky. Instead of adding the meat raw to the spaghetti sauce, I browned them first in a pan so it wouldn't fall apart in the sauce (just in case, if it did). Tastes great, thanks!

Carrot Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2003
I just finished baking this and as it was cooling, I took a piece to test it out. It tastes like oil! Way too greasy and very sweet! I thought the carrot to flour ratio was off (3:2 cups), but I just kept on going (thinking it might work out) and boy, there was more carrots then cake! I made this to bring for work, but after testing it, I doubt I even want to leave it home for my family to try it! Won't be making again.

Easy Lasagna II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2003
Yes, this was super easy, but that's all it was. Flavor was ok, I'm not sure if it's because of the spaghetti sauce I used (Ragu traditional), but it was just average, maybe worse. I made this for lunch and all of us were starving (7), only 1/2 of it was eaten. No one took seconds...they opted for the mornings leftovers donuts...

Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2003
This was pretty good, although we've had better. I also added cinnamon and vanilla extract (no walnuts, since I was out) and I think it really enhanced the flavor. I think without those additions, this would just be your average bread. Mine also browned a little too much on the sides (not sure if it was due to the pan I was using, which was glass), and I even lowered the temp to 325 too. Overall, a good recipe, but there are better banana bread recipes out there (just have to keep looking).

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2003
Made these for a luncheon and everyone loved them! Some said it was just a tad bit sweet while others thought it was just perfect; I think next time, I'll add less sugar, that way, if it isn't sweet enough, you can always add more. I'm not sure if the recipe was written wrong, because I had more than 1 cup of reserved pineapple juice and recipe states something like add enough water with reserved juice to make 1 cup..anyway, I just added 1/2 cup and I didn't have brown sugar, so I just used white and left out bell pepper since I was out. Also, I made the mistake of adding in the corn starch while the sauce was hot, so it became lumpy, you should mix water with the starch in a bowl, then add it in. Meatballs were great with the rice, this is a keeper. Thanks!

Pita Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2003
These are excellent! Served these with store bought hummus, but chips were all gone! I didn't have chervil, so left that out, ran out of garlic salt, so I used garlic powder and added some onion salt. Also, I don't get how everyone warned to make sure to watch the chips carefully...I baked mine for 10-15 mins (maybe longer) and they still weren't crunchy! It did however become nice and crunchy. Thanks, will be making again.

Tofu Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2003
Just made this for family and guests and they all loved it! I didn't have some ingredients, so I did a few substitutions. Sub ricotta cheese for mozarella and for the top layer of cheese, had to use monterey jack since I had no mozarella. I added spinach and shredded carrots to the mixture and used 1 1/2 jar of spaghetti sauce. They all ate the bottom layers but didn't really touch the top, I'm guessing the jack cheese didn't go too well with the recipe. Anyhow, it was a hit and I'll be making again soon. Thanks!

Basic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2003
I've made this recipe many times, but I'm finally getting around to rating it. It's really great! Your everyday mashed potatoes; it goes well with almost anything! It goes well just by itself, but I usually serve it with some dish that has some sort of gravy to it. When I'm being healthy conscience, I'll omit the butter and it's fine as it. I never add the black pepper either, it's not needed.
