Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
Absolutely delicious! I replaced the shortening with butter, omitted the walnuts and 1/2 the salt (used salted butter), and replaced 1/2 of the mayo with peanut butter just because I like the taste. So moist and tasty! Will make again!

I made a few adjustments and my muffins came out incredibly moist and delicious. I used: 1 cup gluten-free oat flour 3/4 cup brown rice flour 1/8 cup ground flax seed 1/2 cup sucanat 1/4 cup brown sugar I replaced the oil with 1/2 cup whole-milk greek yogurt and didn't use any more yogurt, but had to give batter a splash of milk to thin it a bit.

Kale and Spinach Saag

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
This was very good. I used mustard greens instead of kale as I thought mustard was more traditional. I didn't have a full cup of of cottage cheese so I used some neufchatel cheese in place of the remaining cottage cheese. I also added some grated blend (cheddar and monty jack) at the end. The flavor improves with sitting.

Butternut Squash and Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
This is surprisingly tasty. I was concerned about how it would turn out when I smelled the tomatoes in the pot with the turkey. The character of the smell changed entirely when I added allspice as recommended by another reviewer, and I'm so glad I used that suggestion! I also used shredded turkey I had leftover from a whole roasted turkey. I will try it with ground turkey next time just for comparison.

South African Melktert (Milk Tart)

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
Very good. I made this as a dessert accompaniment to the Moroccan Tagine recipe on this site, and it was a nice balance to the spiciness of the Tagine.

Sausage Barley Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
Wow! This is my new favorite soup. I can't wait to make it again. The only change I made was to add a healthy pinch of crushed red pepper flakes, and simmer it in a crock pot all day.

Gingerbread Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
These are tasty, but would benefit from the addition of sugar to the batter. We topped our pancake stacks with whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
This was loved by everyone in my family of six, even earning me extra praise from my 5 yr. old: "Mom, you're best cook of all the food in the world!" I avoid additional sugar, so I left it out. I used Annie's Naturals ranch dressing since it is all-natural and low in sugar. I used both fresh rosemary and fresh thyme from my herb garden, and added a little extra lemon juice. Some skewers were made with just the meat. For those of us who like veggies, I made shish kebab with the meat, red bell peppers, mushrooms, zucchini, and Walla Walla onion. Outstanding!

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
Very good with just enough *zing*. I used minced onion instead of onion powder.

Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2006
WOW! Outstanding soup! I grew up on Campbell's Bean & Bacon, but will not resort to that again. The flavors of this are much more complex and satisfying. The baking soda trick was GREAT -- be sure to rinse off the beans with cold water a couple times. I made the following alterations: After cooking the beans, I put them and the remaining ingredients into a crock pot and cooked on low overnight. I used two smoked ham shanks instead of a simple ham bone, and used diced smoked turkey kielbasa in place of diced ham. I sauteed the veggies in a little olive oil before adding to the crock pot. Used good, rich chicken stock instead of water and did NOT add any salt. A couple good shakes of Tabasco added the necessary balance.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2006
Very good and enjoyed by everyone. I followed other reviewers suggestions and added poultry seasoning and garlic powder. Also used frozen veggies in place of fresh. Instead of using pie crust, I topped the meat & veggie mixture with corn bread dough and baked for 25 mins at 400 degrees. Next time, I will make more gravy as it did not have enough to suit me.

Sherry Sour Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
This was very good and smelled great while baking. Per other reviews, I added onions, mushrooms, and minced garlic to the sauce. I didn't have fresh herbs available, so used dried "Tuscan herb" blend. It was still very tasty. Served with roasted root vegetables and green salad.

Pumpkin Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
Quick, easy, and crowd pleasing! My only substitution was using a Cinnamon Swirl cake mix (Betty Crocker) I had on hand, instead of using yellow cake mix. It was probably better for it.

Greek Lemon Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2006
I was only going to give this 4 stars since it was not a hit with my family, though I loved it, and my best friend and her two kids were fighting over the sample that I brought over to them. Alas, I finished the remains when I returned home and decided it needs 5 stars. Made the following changes: just used 1 1/2 TBS chicken soup base in water; eliminated the celery; sauteed onion with 2 cloves garlic in EVOO before adding to soup; only used 2 TBS butter & flour to make a light roux, added some broth to the roux before adding back into soup; added 1/2 cup uncooked orzo pasta during last 10-15 mins of cooking; only used 4 egg yolks; used a roasted chicken from grocery which I skinned, boned, and chopped before adding to soup; garnished w/ fresh, minced parsley

Baklava

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
Phenomenal! So tasty and easy to make. I made this for a special end to Father's Day dinner, and everyone immediately went back for seconds and thirds. I added lemon zest to the syrup as it simmered. And I added about 1/3 more cinnamon than the recipe called for. We did not think it was too sweet.

Cilantro Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2006
We really enjoyed this. The flavors are very light and refreshing. This would be a perfect summer supper salad. I ate it over fresh baby greens. The teenagers mixed it into some stir-fried sesame rice noodles, as well as ate it over the fresh greens.
