Penne with Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
Good, simple taste. The sauce came out very watery. I might drain the tomatoes next time. We also used frozen pre-cooked shrimp, which may have contributed to the liquid. We didn't use a whole cup of parmesan cheese, but it was a nice addition.

Monte Cristo Sandwiches

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
Very good. I think the trick to this sandwich is finding the bread that you like. I also added a little vanilla to the egg mixture. We were out of swiss cheese, so I used a combination of sharp aged white cheddar and mozzarella.

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
I'm not the biggest fan of gingersnap cookies, but these are great! They are reminiscent of pumpkin pie flavor. I left out the cinnamon sugar and just added more cinnamon. This dough rolls well for cookie cutters; just keep in mind that they expand while baking quite a bit. You do not need to flour (or sugar) the surface or chill the dough before rolling and cutting. I reduced the bake time to 7 minutes on a dark pan, 8 minutes on a standard pan.

Toasted Party Mix

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
TOO MUCH SALT! My family and I ate three pieces and then had to drink a full glass of water. WOW. We cut the salt in half on the next batch and it was still too salty. Then we made batches with no salt at all just to mix them together and hope the end product turned out okay. I will not be using this recipe again.

Tofu Sandwich Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
Really good! A non-vegan, non-vegetarian would still enjoy this dish. It reminds me of an egg salad. I didn't freeze the tofu, just diced it in the onion chopper. The consistency was fine. Great balance of flavors in this recipe. Thanks, Judy!

Lemon Basil Carrots

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
Really tasty! We used Smart Balance spread to make it healthier and purple basil for an interesting look. Thanks for the recipe, Donna!

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2007
This is a good recipe for picky eaters or people who like simple tastes. My family and I like more complicated flavors, but we were still pleased with the results. We found they were more dense and heavier than typical hamburger buns. We decided to eat them as rolls with a little butter and salt. Keep in mind that these buns expand upward, but NOT outward, while baking.

Chicken And Artichoke Penne With A White Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
Excellent! Really tasty. I used the Bechemel Sauce posted by Holly and really liked it. That recipe makes 1.5 C, which I think is the perfect amount for this recipe. You could easily leave out the chicken for vegetarians and still have a really great meal.

Bechamel Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
Great! This recipe makes approximately 1.5 C. I used fat free half and half and fat free chicken broth and it still tasted rich and creamy. I wasn't sure what "grated onion" was, so I used one finely chopped green onion. I also used regular pepper.

Puppy Chow

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2007
Wonderful! This is a great recipe that everyone knows and loves. Don't be afraid of the less than gourmet appearance. I think the ratio of chocolate to cereal is just right. I also made a batch with dark chocolate (60% cocoa bittersweet chips), and a batch with dark chocolate raspberry peanut butter I found at a gourmet store. I am eager to try it with Nutella (Italian hazelnut spread)next time. I melted the chocolate in corningware at 30 second intervals in the microwave. I found it helpful to include the peanut butter with the chocolate during the last 30 seconds.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
Easy and great taste. I used halved fresh cherry tomatoes. Since I didn't have any plain balsamic vinegar, I let a bottle of balsamic vinagrette seperate, then used a turkey plunger to extract the oil (on top) for step one, then the balsamic (on the bottom) for step two. I'd advise others to use too little rather than too much thyme and taste it before adding the salt.

Chilled Cantaloupe Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
Great! Light, refreshing, and nutritious. Keep in mind that the taste of the soup heavily depends on the taste of the melon -- make sure it is ripe! If the melon doesn't taste good, the soup probably won't. I put chunks of melon through the ChopWizard onion chopper, which prepped it nicely and quickly for the food processor.

Lemon Blueberry Drop Scones

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
This is a recipe definitely worth trying. We ate them without the glaze and were happy with the taste. The consistency is muffin-like. I used olive oil instead of butter, two egg whites, less sugar, and low-fat yogurt to make them healthier. Don't be afraid to throw in a little extra lemon zest.

Eggplant Tomato Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
Great recipe! Simple, easy, healthy, and versatile. We used a variety of cheeses (each type by itself): swiss, meunster, feta, and aged hard cheese. Pick your favorite! We also enjoyed adding sprigs of fresh basil.

Green Beans With Orange Olive Oil

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
A nice change to ordinary steamed green beans. Easy to make. Next time I'd use more orange zest and a little less oil.

The Munroe Melt

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
That's a great sandwhich! I wasn't sure what "prepared dijon mustard and mayonnaise blend" was, so I used dijon on one side and Smart Balance mayo on the other. Wonderful taste and texture; the tomato keeps it from being too dry. Defintely a keeper!

Fudge Brownies I

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2007
Caution: these brownies will make you lose all self-control and probably derail any diet you're on. You've been warned! They're fantastic! Fudgey and rich, just like brownies should be. I took the advice of other members and reduced the eggs to four egg whites. I also used about 3/4 C butter (I ran out) and substituted chocolate chips for walnuts. 30 minutes was sufficient baking time. I recommend eating these warm out of the oven; the sides are crispy and the inside is amazing.

Pico De Gallo

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2007
A good starter / idea base for pico de gallo. I agree with other reviewers that this recipe needs lime juice. I used the juice from one small (almost key lime) lime and felt it was the right amount. I used more cilantro, double the garlic powder, and threw in another half tomato. I also used all green onions. Keep in mind that the yield is relatively small. It's so good people will gobble it down quickly, so I suggest doubling it! Many people eat this with chips, but I like it alone as a side salad.

California Melt

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2007
Simple, fresh taste; easy to adjust flavors for any palate. This recipe makes enough for four SMALL sandwhiches. Double the ingredients if you are using full-sized bread or want a very hearty sandwhich.
