Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
This is a delicious and easy bread to make. I always alter recipes to make lighter, lower in fat and/or lower in sugar ~ so I did change a few things. But isn't that a sign of a great recipe? The foundation is so tried and true that you can change ingredients a smidge to suit your tastes? I used less sugar (1 1/2c white, 1/2 splenda brown), less white flour (2 1/2c AP flour, 1c WW flour), NO oil (used applesauce) and increased cinnamon to 2 tsp. Everything else remained the same and WOW! was it tasty with am coffee, pm coffee, after dinner, and so on. Thanks for a keeper!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
this is a great, easy recipe. I've made it exact and with changes... it is so flexible. Last night, I made it with elk sausage and olive oil, canned tomatoes and veggie broth and all the other ingredients the same ~ it was the best yet! I let it sit overnight and served it today for a ladies lunch with crusty bread. Everyone raved. Thanks for a great soup!

Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2007
This potato salad is beautiful and delicious. I assembled the night BEFORE the party and found the next day, I needed a smidge more dressing. On the second day dressing, I used only lime juice, mustard, s&p and a few drops of oil... This was excellent. I used salted crushed peanuts and it made all the difference (without it, I would have had to add more salt to the salad). I have to admit, this was the prettiest dish on the table! And although I doubled the recipe, this was the first bowl emptied! Great summer recipe!

Sweet Potato Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
I made this for t-day breakfast and WOW! was it great! I did a few alterations (suggestions from some of the others). Used only 2 cups sugar, divided the flour into 1/2 ALL-PURPOSE and 1/2 WHOLE WHEAT, and microwaved the sweet potatoes. Made mini muffins, baked them for 12 minutes. The recipe made about 42 mini muffins. NO LEFTOVERS! Soooooooo good.

Chicken and Corn Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
This was ok. Very easy to make, however, it lacked something extraordinary. I could definately tell it was from jars and cans. I like a recipe that uses jars and cans, but tastes homemade... this wasn't it.

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
I was not a fan of this beef. I found it to be somewhat greasy with not a lot of zing to it.

Denise's Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
this was ok... I made a few errors that probably cost a star, so I'll make it again to see if it is worthy of 5 stars! However, even with my mistakes, the taste was good, the recipe was easy and there weren't any leftovers.

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2006
I made this with brunch for family. Everyone raved about it. I gave it 4 stars because I thought it was a smidge dry, but that could be an 'oven issue'. Follwed the easy recipe exactly and added nuts. Made two perfect shaped loaves. Will try again with fewer minutes in the oven. Served at room temperature with the option of butter or peanut butter. Yummy!

Gazpacho

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2006
I think this is absolutely yummy! I used Spicy V8 juice for the tomato juice, used fresh herbs including cilantro and omitted the green pepper. Also, put a little lemon rind in with the juice. It was so good. Will make again! (maybe tonight...)

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2006
This was great! I should have marinaded the chicken longer or even overnight and it would have been superb! But for lack of time, I prepared as stated. Tasted like a satay. This marinade would be great with fish, too. I served with sweet potato and steamed veggie infused with ginger. One word~ yummy! p.s. I used a 'honey substitute' which is sugar free... couldn't tell the difference.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2006
I couldn't bring myself to prepare this recipe exactly as shown! So much fat! I decreased the butter to 1 TBSP, used olive oil spray, and used Perdue 'thin & fit' breasts. I increased the shrooms to 3 cups. This dish was fast and tasty. Not as tasty as I've had before, but again, I decreased the richness in the recipe! This is a great recipe when you are in a hurry. Next time, will try a variety of mushrooms~ that would be yummy, too.

Amateur's Light Breeze Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
I have to be honest... I was looking forward to this chili all day. The first batch I made was so blazing hot, no one could eat it. So, I made it a second time without the jalapenos~ still pretty darn spicy. Next time, I'll make a few more adjustments. The consistency was great and sooooo easy to make. I'm going to keep trying :)

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
This meatloaf was tasty. The glaze is super sweet and I substituted Splenda brown sugar (2 TBSP) instead of regular brown sugar. Also, I used a 95/5 lean hamburger meat... Very little fat to drain. Reduced cooking time to 40 mins. Would definately make again.

My Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
This meatloaf was moist and had a great flavor! The only thing for me was the cooking time~ it burned! Will try again with less time... maybe 30-40 minutes? Otherwise, great!

Pasta Shells with Portobello Mushrooms and Asparagus in Boursin Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2005
This was good, but needed something... garlic?, salt?, white wine?. Would make again, but would play with the recipe. ALso, for so few ingredients, this recipe is pricey.

Fresh Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2005
Loved this salad! Tweaked a little... added craisins instead if raisins and sunflower seeds instead of almonds due to allergies. Enjoyed very much. Served with burgers on the grill and tossed salad. Would be great for potluck or picnic. Thanks, Nora!

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
This was the very first carrot cake I've ever made... Outstanding! Rave reviews! Served it up without the nuts (allergies) and instead of raisins used craisins! Topped with a homemade cream cheese frosting... Bravo!!! Everyone loved it. Will definately make it again :)
