Fra Diavolo Sauce With Pasta

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
I gave this a 4 out of 5 because I had to change the recipe a little for my taste. I added a can of tomato paste to add more body to the sauce & more flavor. I did not have scallops, so I doubled the amount of shrimp. & I added just a pinch of nutmeg & garlic powder to add even more flavor. After these changes the recipe was great, my DH & I both loved it. I can't imagine eating it as the recipe was originally written, it seems so bland that way & without substance.

Ashley's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I doubled the recipe because it doesn't make enough for a big batch. I took these cookies on a campout with a bunch of people & they all raved about how good they were. The only problem was they went way too fast!

Chocolate Cookie Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I added more cocoa powder to make this frosting a little more chocolaty. Other than that I thought it was really good.

Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I had to give the recipe 4 stars instead of 5 because of the changes I made. I used refrigerated pie crust instead of scratch & it worked great. I used frozen veggie mix along with frozen O'Brien potatoes & it was so easy this way. I pre-cooked several chicken breasts & cut up in chunks to add to the other ingredients. Everybody loved this recipe & said it was much, much better than the frozen things you get in the store. I will definitely be making this again!

Chocolate Zucchini Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
I added 2 more tablespoons of chocolate, but DH still complained it wasn't chocolaty enough, so next time will add more. This is not a bar, it's a cake. I found it to be very moist & with the chocolate buttercream frosting on top, very rich. Due to the complaint about the chocolate I have to give it 4 stars instead of 5, but I thought it was very good. A great way to sneak in veggies without anyone knowing!

Lover's Loaf

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
This recipe was awesome, my family all agreed that this was the best meatloaf I had ever made! It took a little longer than the usual meatloaf, but so worth it. I made some minor changes to the original recipe. I added a chopped onion to the meat mixture, used italian style bread crumbs, added some chopped garlic & put some of the grated parmesan on the top before putting it in the oven. I didn't have the prosciutto, so I left it out, but it was great without it.

Asian Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2009
This salad was just OK. I felt like it really needed something else for more flavor & more ingredients. I was in a hurry, so I didn't have time to experiment, maybe next time if I make it again. I did add snow peas chopped up in bite sized pieces to add a little something, but it still needed more.

Ziti with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
We really liked this recipe, it had good flavor. The only thing my husband complained about was that he would have liked more sausage in it, I'll have to add more next time.

3-Cheese Mostaccioli Bolognese

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
This recipe just didn't live up to it's rating. I added some chopped onion to the skillet when cooking the meat & garlic & added a little Italian spice mix, but other than that made it as written. There was just something missing in this recipe, but I couldn't figure out what it needed. We probably won't have this one again.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2008
This was the best Clam Chowder I've ever made. I had to give it 4 stars instead of 5 however because I changed it a little. I left out the carrots because I don't like carrots in my chowder & I added extra red wine vinegar & some Old Bay seasoning. This gave it the extra flavor it needed. Other than those things it's a great recipe & I will be making it again, hubby loved it too.

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
This is a very good & easy recipe. You can change it to your tastes by adding or subtracting ingredients, very versatile. I added a can of chopped tomatoes this time & it made a good recipe even better. I may experiment even more next time. Thanks for the great recipe!

Festival-Style Grilled Italian Sausage Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2008
This recipe was great! I split the sausages & grilled them on my indoor grill. I cooked the onions & green peppers in a skillet, until carmelized. I then put the grilled sausage on top of a wheat hoagie bun split, topped the sausage with the peppers & onions & put some spicy brown mustard on top of that. It was delish!

Shrimp Scampi II

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2008
This recipe as written was very bland, it was just missing something I couldn't pinpoint. I had to add more worcestershire sauce, some red pepper flakes, & parmesan cheese to add some flavor to it. Sorry, we just didn't like this one that well.

Fiesta Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This was a good recipe & easy to make. I used some fajita chicken strips in addition to 1 can of chicken instead of 2 cans. This just seemed to add some more substance to it. Otherwise we liked the flavor & it went over well with the hubby.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This recipe was just O.K., not wonderful. There was just something missing that I couldn't put my finger on. I probably won't make it again.

Cola Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This recipe was just O.K. You could really taste the ketchup in this & it didn't do all that much for the recipe. I added chopped onions on top & this did add some better flavor. The chops did however turn out very tender.

Blackberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2007
This was a very delicious salad that my husband & I enjoyed. I didn't have the edible flowers, but it didn't need them. You can use about any dressing you want with this salad. I liked raspberry viniagrette with it, but my husband liked blue cheese.

Gourmet White Pizza

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2006
What a great option for pizza, we loved it! I did reduce the garlic a little & added mozarella cheese on top. We didn't mind eating this pizza with a fork, it was well worth it.

Cherry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2005
I left out the buttermilk & mayo & served everything over lettuce. Use the dressing of your choice. This was a great salad!
