Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
This was great- I don't like to use white flour so i substituted whole wheat flour and added 2T gound flax seed. I added a handful of chopped walnuts also used went a little heavier on the sour cream(used light)and bananas for moisture. I wanted to make a bread so I used a standard bread loaf pan at 350 for about 45 min or until a dark golden brown..Delicious!

Deb's Scallops Florentine

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
I really love this- it is a regular for me..I sometimes lighten it up(for calories sake)using fat free half and half & a little cornstarch too help thicken..This also works wonderfully with haddock or with chicken breasts( I brown them lightly in a pan first)..We like a lot of sauce to serve over rice so sometimes I double..Yum.. Thanks!

Tim's Sausage Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Hmm..I made this because it got so many rave reviews..It was good but not OMG 5 stars - I probably should have read others suggestions in detail but was rushing..This is definitely more of a soup- I like a little more substance. I would consider making again w/others suggestions. Thanks!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
This was delicious..I recommend doubling sauce & also cooking separately if you like a crispy breast..definitely wrap the cheese in the ham as another suggested, as this keeps it from leaking out.

Easy Olive Martini Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
Other reviewers gave this such great ratings..Mine came out okay..I would try to make again just to see, but fiancee isn't a big fan of alcohol flavor..I substituted vodka for gin thinking it would be more mild- maybe should have stuck to original recipe..

Hot Crab Rounds

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2008
This was very good. I used mayo as one of the other reviewers did. I also brushed the bread lightly with olive oil(what can I say I'm Italian). I placed the meat on the light side of the bread, as the edges toast nicely when they go back into the oven. I have to say- I tried the mix cold before putting back in the oven with the cheese- I like it even better! It tasted great both ways, but it's nice to know you can use it as a cold appetizer too...thanks!

Awesome Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2008
I love pasta salads & this is now one of my favorites.. Don't skimp on the tomatoes as I did(didn't have enough) because you need these to counter the saltiness of the meats & dressing(used Kens Northern). Enjoy!

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
These were great!! I cooked them on a rack until lightly browned. They weren't greasy at all. We did feel that it would be nice to have a sauce with them, though they are tasty on their own. Any ideas??? I made the recipe for "piquant meatballs" (from this site) at the same time and borrowed some sauce from those, which turned out to be a pretty good match!! Thanks!

Brown Sugar Smokies

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
Loved this.. I thought they would be too fatty and greasy for my taste, but they were fantastic. I did as others suggested and let them marinate in a plastic bag with the brown sugar. I cooked them for approx. 40 min on a rack until dark brown & bacon was slightly crunchy. This let most of the fat drip off the bacon.. Gone in an instant..delicious!! Thanks!

Fish Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
I love this recipe. I have made this several times now- it was a huge hit for Christmas eve dinner. I add shrimp, scallops, clams and corn as well. Must be careful to not cook too much after adding cod(or haddock) because it breaks down, so I add it in big chunks & cook it for several minutes longer until cooked thru. I also add a splash of sherry and some extra butter- yum!! Thanks!

Russell's Fish Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2005
I made this last night- it was fantatstic. I added fresh chopped clams, extra cod and a can of sweet corn. I kept the cilantro to a minimum because I am not a big fan, and the stew still had unbelievable flavor. Thanks for the recipe!

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2005
This dish was excellent! I did make some changes, though. I used thinly sliced chicken breasts & removed them from the pan after browning in order to make the sauce. I used Holland House marsala & sherry from the supermarket, which worked out perfect because I don't like a super-sweet marsala(just remember that these contain salt, so don't add alot of extra salt if you use these). I also added 1TBSP cornstarch mixed w/1TBSP water to thicken. I added chicken back in at end and simmered for several minutes. Also, I doubled the recipe & still could have used more sauce for the two of us(over pasta). Delicious!!

Weeknight Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2005
This was delicious! I added provolone cheese and used Sarah Lee brown sugar ham- gave it a nice flavor. I'd like to try cream of mushroom with this for a different twist. Also, this didn't make a lot of extra sauce for pasta, so I'll double next time. Yum! Thanks for the recipe!

Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2005
This was delicious! I shredded the zucchini and added chopped tomatoes from the garden. I didn't have marjoram but I added a little onion salt & a few other spices from the shelf. I also added a little shredded cheese. For the biscuit mix I used low-fat Bisquick. Excellent- thanks!

Italian Sausage and Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2005
This is a good basic recipe that you can tweak according to how you like it. I found that it needed a little more flavoring and thickness when served over rice. I used hamburger, added crushed garlic, garlic salt, pepper and oregano. I also added some red sauce to thicken. My sweetie devoured it! Thanks!

Mom's Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2005
This recipe was delicious! The only problem I had was that the center didn't seem to want to cook, so I had to cook it longer, and the crust became too well done. Maybe the zucchini was too watery? Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

Zucchini Bread VII

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2005
I lost my old recipe for zucchini bread and have been searching for a new one. I have found that many of the recipies are basically the same but the sour cream in this one makes it very moist with a wonderful texture. I am, however, used to a much darker bread ( I think my old recipe called for brown sugar and cinnamon ), so if you're you like a spicier bread I highly recommend adding cinnamon. I added almost a tablespoon & found it could have used more( obviously, everyone's taste will be different). Otherwise, this recipe is excellent and I will continue to use it. Thanks!
