Sun-Dried Tomato Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2005
I made this dip because I was in a rush to bring an appetizer to a party. It was a HUGE hit at the party! The only thing I would change next time is using one clove of garlic instead of two. I'm a garlic lover, but people said they could smell the dip from across the room. Also, I only had 4oz of cream cheese, but it seemed to be fine without more. I used several dashes of Tobasco, and instead of fresh basil, I used a few dashes of dried. It was delish!

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
This was simple enough, but way way too many crackers for my tastes.

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2006
This dish was fantastic. I too added a dash of cornstarch at the end to thicken it up a bit. Also, I cooked the green peppers longer than the rest because they tend to be a rougher pepper than red/yellow/orange. I was tired of working with chicken breasts, so I used chicken sausage instead. I will make this one again for sure.

Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
I made it exactly as instructed except instead of cayane, I used crushed red peppers. I think it would be great either way.

Department Store Onion Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
It's true, you do need to cook the onions for at least an hour. I used mozzarella instead of swiss, also skipped the browning sauce. It's great with the white wine (don't skip that!).

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
Mine turned out thick enough and with plenty of kick. I used a fresh green chili pepper instead of canned. I also added 3/4 cup of dried black beans at the start of cooking. As for spices, I added several dashes of ground red chilis, cumin, paprika, and chili powder. I also added two tsp of chili sauce (I love foods with a punch). I cooked it on low for 7 hours, then high for the last hour to make sure the beans were done through.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I have made this recipe several times, but this last time I didn't realize until after I put the dough together that I had too few bananas and no applesauce to substitute. In a pinch, I added sour cream instead. It didn't challenge the flavor of the bananas and provided enough moisture to keep this bread tasty. I also sprinkled a little cinnamon and sugar at the bottom of the greased dish. It added a hint of complexity to the smell of the bread. Delicious.

Southwestern Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
I made some alterations to this one because I'm not huge on tomatoes in my soup. I cut the canned tomatoes in half and omitted the romas. I also used one fresh poblano pepper that I blackened over the open flame of my gas stove rather than the canned peppers. Also, I threw in some ABC pasta at the very end to add some chunkiness. I cooked this soup in my slow-cooker, and it turned out well--the flavor was just the right amount of spice.

Mexican Whole Wheat Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
I dared to make this recipe for a dinner party without trying it first. It turned out quite well though my golf sized balls produced 16 six inch tortillas. Our guests were running late, so I put the tortillas in a metal pan lined and covered with foil in a warm oven at 175F for about 35 minutes. When serving the tortillas, I paired it with a Southwestern Tortilla Chicken Soup, and let my guests top their tortillas with guacamole, green onions, cilantro, sour cream, and cheese (or just plain butter) if they wanted it. Overall, a huge success--every last one was eaten.

Bulgur Chickpea Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
This recipe is pretty good. I made a few alterations along the way. I cut back the lemon to half of what the recipe called for, used extra virgin olive oil instead of veggie oil, and instead of topping with carrots, I topped it with fresh slices of avocado.

Cheesy Zucchini Casserole I

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
This was a fairly bland casserole. There's so much more that can be done to enhance the flavor of zucchini. This one fell a little flat.

Cucumber Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
This recipe is great the way it is. I used a traditional yoghurt rather than the typical (and much sweeter) American-style yogurt. Fresh veggies are a must. I used cayanne powder since I was out of cumin. Also, I tossed in a handful of chopped green onions.

Fresh Tomato Zucchini Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2007
I followed the advice of earlier reviewers and added the zucchini in the last 10 minutes of cooking. I also skipped the listed spices and pureed one fresh seeded jalapeño with the tomatoes and onion. This gave the soup a kick and cleared out my sinuses (terrific for a cold). I also toasted some French bread and used it for dipping. I would make this one again for sure.

Pad Thai

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2008
This recipe didn't taste anything at all like the pad thai I've had at restaurants. There was way too much sugar. I only used 1/3 of what the recipe called for, and it was still overbearing. I will not make this recipe again.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2008
So simple, yet so delicious. I followed this recipe as indicated. (No broth at the bottom, no turning the bird, nothing fancy.) Because I had a 5lb bird, I cooked it for 2 hours on high and then 5 hours on low. Fantastic. I also used some "One Step Chicken" seasoning by McCormick. It came out perfectly.

Cheese Ravioli with Fresh Tomato and Artichoke Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
I didn't have enough fresh tomatoes, so I used a 14 oz can of petit diced tomatoes, strained. It's a great meal for a weekday night when short on time.

Lazy Katie's Taco Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
I cooked the beef in taco seasoning, then made a layered taco salad. It was good, but not great. I don't think I'd serve it to guests, but for a tortilla chip lover such as myself, it was good for a quick afternoon snack.
