Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Fantastic! I sauteed the steamed sprouts in butter before adding the vinegar to get them nice and browned...I also used walnuts that I lightly toasted since thats what I had on hand. No leftovers!

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2008
These were really great-simple and delicious. I added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp. ground cloves, and about 1/4 tsp. of freshly ground nutmeg. I also substituted oil for the butter in the recipe as it was all I had on hand. Turned out great!

French Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
Really really good...I think it could use a bit of sugar, but other than that, a very easy and delicious bread. The dough will be very dense but will rise nicely the second time. Thanks for a good bread recipe!

Roll-Out Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
The dough was easy to work with and kept its shape while baking, so the cut-outs stayed true. I think the glaze my be improved w/a bit of lemon extract to compliment the flavor of the cookie.

Banana Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
Really good banana muffins recipe...moist and sweet. The banana flavor really comes through and the topping is a nice compliment. I added extra cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg for additional flavor.

Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
These were very good-I peeled and baked the sweet potatoes in a 375 degree oven for 30 minutes and then broiled them, turning them periodically. I only seasoned with olive oil, salt and pepper and let the kids dip them in sugar free syrup-yum!

Flavorful Beef Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
Very good and easy stir-fry. Next time we would definitely double the sauce and add some garlic and ginger. My husband made this himself...way to go honey!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Excellent and easy...I added a bit of cinnamon to the topping and used walnuts that I had on hand. It took a bit longer than 25 minutes but was well worth it.

Breakfast Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I mistakenly made this the night before like other breakfast casseroles, but it was still tasty-the tater tots seemed to break apart so there were little pieces of potato throughout. Good flavor-some garlic or additional seasonings would be great.

Royal Icing I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
This worked well for flooding the cookies but not to write or pipe details-it was too runny even after adding lots of extra powdered sugar.

Glazed Meatloaf II

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
This meatloaf was excellent. I've tried many many recipes and never found one that was enjoyed as much by my family. I replaced the lemon juice in the glaze with balsamic vinegar and with Worcestershire in the meat. (Adding lemon juice to ground meat just sounded weird...) Worcestershire was tangy like the lemon and added that beefy flavor, so I skipped the beef bullion. I also used a combination of ground beef, lamb, and veal. This is a keeper!

Bacon and Tomato Cups

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
These are great and so easy! I quartered each biscuit as suggested in other reviews and added a bit of garlic. I think using less biscuit dough per cup made the thickness more proportional to the filling. Great recipe!

Lemon-Pepper Salmon II

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
This salmon turned out very nicely. I did not have lemon pepper seasoning so I added fresh ground pepper, lemon zest, and lemon juice. I didnt find that the flavor of the soy sauce stood out at all, but I think that added a sweetness to the final taste. I baked it at 350 for 20 minutes covered, then 5 minutes uncovered.

Company Couscous

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
This needed extra seasoning in our opinion. I browned some turkey kielbasa and stirred the slices in with the couscous and veggie mixture. My husband liked it much better after he added hot sauce.

Bacon Cheese Treats

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This recipe is a good concept, but the flavor needs to be kicked up. I caramelized the onions, added garlic and Parmesan cheese, and next time I would add even more seasoning. I also found that they took more than 15 minutes to brown at 350 degrees. I like the idea and will definitely try this again!

Pizza Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
This was great! Using a salty chip is the best choice for dipping-I used Fritos scoops. I topped the dip with a bunch of thinly sliced fresh veggies that I had on hand-red onion, peppers, etc. It went fast in a group of picky eaters!

Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
This makes a really filling and easy meal. After browning the pork chops, I added a bit of extra buttter to the pan and sauteed some onions and mushrooms, then added the soup and milk. I seasoned everything with salt, pepper, garlic, and sage. 45 minutes in the oven may have been a bit long as the chops weren't as moist as I expected, but overall everything was tasty! The sage really complimented the onions, mushrooms and pork well.
