Pumpkin Oatmeal

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2006
I love everything pumpkin, but wasn't wild about this one. Served with lots of extra sugar on top, but it still tasted like uncooked canned pumpkin. I think this recipe is a great idea so I'll do some tweaking and post my changes by updating this review.

Banana Bread V

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
Goof proof banana bread. Have made this a couple of times and last time I accidently added ingredients in the wrong order - oops. Still came out great! Good with or without nuts and vanilla. Also makes terrific muffins: bake at 375 for 15-17 minutes.

Saint Paddy's Dill Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2006
This dip is great anytime - not just March 17 - keep the ingredients on hand and then whip it up when you need dip. It does need to chill for about 2 hours so the dry spices absorb moisture. The following changes will reduce the saltiness... use all sour cream (no mayo), omit the onion salt and MSG, increase the minced onion. See my photo for a fun way to organize veggies like an Irish Flag.

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2006
The Timeless Classic. Have tried other recipes but always come back to this one. My 12-year old daughter took over the pie baking duties last Thanksgiving and wowed everyone with her first pie. Her great grandmother asked what bakery made the pie!

Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2006
Terrific stuff. Prefer to steam potatoes instead of boiling. Just eyeballed ingredients but probably used only 1/4 cup butter. Garnished with a bit of crumbled bacon and fresh chives. Next time I'll be sure to remove the rib parts of the cabbage and chop more finely. Definitely use the leeks!

Cold Veggie Squares

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2006
Festive for a St. Patrick's Day celebration! I arranged the broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots separately to form an Irish flag. -------check out my uploaded photo------- Added finely chopped green pepper to broccoli and orange pepper to carrots for extra flavor, color and texture. Can substitute 3T bottled ranch dressing for mayo and salad seasoning if that's what's on hand. Next time I'll cut into squares before adding veggies, as suggested by previous reviewer, to preserve flag's colors.

Potato Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2006
Substituted poached fresh salmon (in wine and water) and frozen shredded potatoes (defrosted). Added a tsp. of Dijon mustard. Sauteed minced garlic and onion in butter to mellow flavor before adding to salmon mixture. Browned patties in frying pan and finished cooking on baking sheet in oven because cakes puff up nicely and cook all the way through if baked. Served with Dill Dip II from this site.

Dill Dip II

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2006
Has a very nice flavor. Left out the MSG because my sister has a serious reaction to MSG. Added chives and a squeeze of fresh lemon. Definitely make a few hours ahead so dry herbs have time to absorb moisture. Served as a sauce for "Potato Salmon Patties" from this site. For dipping veggies, I prefer "Saint Patty's Dill Dip" recipe, which has a little more kick.

Charleston Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
Super easy. Definitely use one and a half batches of this recipe when baking in a 13 x 9 pan. Used about 1/2 cup diced red pepper. Substituting part reduced fat cheddar kept casserole from becoming greasy. Bakes up lighter in pyrex than a metal pan. This has a bread pudding type of texture so next time I might add an extra egg to make it "eggier."

Paella I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
Delicioso! This paella achieves excellent results without requiring a full day in the kitchen. Substituted clams for mussels. Layered the tomatoes and squid on top rather than mixing in... almost cheated on the tomatoes - glad I didn't use canned!

Butterscotch Oatmeal

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
The creamiest oatmeal ever. This is one of those recipes that you'll wish you had years ago - what a great idea to cook oatmeal in milk and eggs. Didn't give it 5 stars because it needs less sugar - maybe 1/3 cup next time - and more milk - at least 2 cups. Used quick oats instead of rolled. This was so good that I actually saved the leftovers (who saves leftover oatmeal???) and warmed it in the microwave with extra milk the next day.

Ginger Glazed Chicken with Pineapple Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2006
The marinade was tasty but needs alot less sesame oil - a few teaspoons at most. The pineapple salsa didn't meld well - the flavors tasted separate, even after a few hours in the frig. Perhaps the salsa would taste better with fresh pineapple...

Cucumber Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2006
Wonderful! Just like a sandwich served at a local bagel shop. Tastes great on pumpernickel! Have used roasted peppers when I don't have pepperocini. Also added shredded carrots. Reduced tomato to 2 slices to keep it from sliding around so much.

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
Addictive! I tweaked this recipe only a little. To increase flavor I reduced nuts to 3 cups but kept coating ingredients the same. Be sure to wisk the egg white until it is VERY foamy. Baking an extra 30 minutes increased the crunchiness! It's important to use the correct size baking sheet for the amount of almonds - nuts should be single layer and just fill the pan - an old dark pan works best and I don't bother to spray it - I scrape up the extra sugar at end and throw it in with the nuts. After the first hour stir every 15 minutes and continue baking until the coating is dry.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2006
Great orange flavor - tastes similar to restaurant Crispy Orange Chicken. The following changes should improve texture... After frying chicken keep warm on baking sheet in oven. Reduce cornstarch to 2 tsp. and dissolve in 1 Tbsp. water before wisking into boiling sauce. Transfer chicken to serving platter and pour sauce over all. Don't heat chicken in sauce or crispy coating will flake off into sauce. Broccoli, sweet peppers, carrots, snow peas, and/or scallions would be nice - may need extra sauce if adding veggies.

BBQ Chicken Pizza II

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
Quick, easy, and a favorite with kids. All of the neighborhood moms have asked for this recipe. I prefer to cook raw boneless chicken in the barbeque sauce with onions and peppers for a richer flavor. I chop the chicken, return it to the sauce with the onions and peppers and spread the mixture on a Boboli or homemade crust and top with mozzerella.

Bavarian Style Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2006
Perfect as an appetizer for holiday parties. Most people are surprised by the delicious combination of cranberry sauce and sauerkraut. Definitely use WHOLE BERRY cranberry sauce. I usually reduce sugar to 1/2 cup, and use only 14 oz. of drained sauerkraut. Works equally well with beef, turkey or pork meatballs. Can be made ahead and frozen.

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2006
Tasty! Easy chili recipe and a "4" as written. Have made this a couple of times and find it's better with a few cloves of minced garlic and simmered longer - about 3 hours - to thicken. Like other reviewers I like my chili with some tomatoes so when I made this again I used a combination of V8, crushed tomatoes, and diced tomatoes.

Original Chex® Party Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
I used Crispix instead of Chex (only one box needed to get corn & rice). Tried this in the microwave and next time I will distribute seasoning more evenly to avoid scorching saturated pieces - also stir more often. Traditional oven method still best if time allows.

Get a Husband Brunswick Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2006
Compared recipes and took best of each - used crock pot, served with cornbread. Changes: 2lbs. boneless chicken thighs, 1lb. leftover pork roast, 1/2 cup diced smoked ham, plus 2 slices crumbled turkey bacon in place of all meats. Added 1/2 cup sliced okra, 2 cups lima beans, 1 clove minced garlic, 1 can chicken broth, dash of worcestershire. Replaced ketchup with tomato puree and creamed corn with 2 cups frozen. Increased BBQ sauce to 1 cup. Wonderful aroma!
