To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
This was the most easy and uncomplicated recipe, I can see why it is so highly rated. I looked at the other reviews and decided that I would just work with the orginal recipe. I found it did not need any changes. The only thing I would say were "different" of mine was that I used a Jumbo egg (sent hubby to the store!). and I did dust my blueberries with flour. However, with the density of the batter I don't know it was needed. I made 9 regular sized muffins in lieu of jumbo. Next time I will half the crumb mixture, I think it made too much for my muffins.

Anzac Biscuits I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2007
Geez, the lady below me must be working on the same patch! I too made these for my Daisy GS troop as we are doing a bit on the Australian Girl Guides. I too hate coconut and I liked these cookies! It is a dry mix, which threw me off, but they are crunchy and fun so, I would reccomend them! Most of the girls liked them as well.

Banana Bread V

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2006
This deserves 5 stars! I was looking for an easy banana bread recipe and I looked at the more higher rated ones on this site. I saw far too many bad reviews in those and some that required more work than I felt like for a simple bread. The simplicity of this recipe appealed to me and I am glad I used it. It came out wonderful and I am not a big Banana Bread fan! I followed it to the tee just adding a VERY heaping cup full of bananas and some cinnamon. EVEN BETTER the next day. I will note though, it took a full hour in my oven (which is only a year old) and it was still a bit gooey in the center. So I turned the oven off and left it in the oven for about 15 minutes and it yeilded perfect results! I will keep this recipe for good. Thank you for sharing Pat.

Mexican Beef Supreme

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2006
Hey Melissa! I hope you marry that man, don’t let a cook like that get away! This was a very good and I would say authentic dish. It was very easy to prepare. Reminiscent of Rachael Ray's 30 minute meals! It goes together nicely and inexpensive to make as well. The only think I personally would say I did not like was the spicy factor (I even seeded the pepper as most of the heat is in the seeds). BUT I am a huge wimp when it comes to spice; my husband on the other hand loved it and felt it too be too mild! I will make it again and use half of the jalapeno (he has a cabinet of hot sauce that one of which would compliment this well). The spice really does enhance the flavor so it would be foolish to leave it out. We served this on tortillas, but tastes just as good over the yellow rice we served with it. I served with sour cream as well (A LOT, helped tone down the spice!). ALSO! Please be careful cutting those darn peppers! I got the pepper juice under a few of my nails! OUCH! I was up all night will burning fingers! This was definitely a hit and I am holding on to this one and will make it again. FINALLY I have found a good recipe here again. I have had quite a few misses from here recently. This recipe alone has redeemed all recipes for me!

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
I am sorry, I must be in the extreme minority when I say this was awful! I read the reviews and took note of any modifications, etc. but this recipe is beyond help. I tasted like a Campbell's soup recipe, despite the claims that it did not. My husband and only ate our sides. I am going to stick with recipes that use fresher ingredients as opposed to processed ones, based on the number of positive reviews I thought I would give it a whirl. This recipe is nothing special and not one fresh ingredient, but the meat, goes into this. The flavor of the sauce is very generic and again, processed. I felt like at some point I should have added Velveeta. If you like cream of whatever soup recipes, I suppose you will enjoy this. However, if you enjoy entrees of a fresher fare, keep looking!

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
I did not like this much. I thought it would be good based on all of the glowing reviews, but it was missing something. My husband ate it, but then he would eat whatever I put in front of him as long as it did not have peas ; ) But I will not be making this one again. I will also note though, I have had Outbacks Version and I did not care for that one either.

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
I have been looking all over for this recipe. My mother used to make this when we were kids! What a yummy treat. I did however have to throw it out after the first night becasue I ate too much of it and I did not want it around to mess up my diet. It was soooo good I could not control myself!

Slow Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken II

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
This turned out really good! I enjoyed the flavor and it came out moist, I was worried it would be dry. I made no changes really, only I did forget to put in the bouillon granules & Parsley, but I did not realize that until just now, LOL! I am putting the leftovers in my salad for lunch tomorrow, very yummy! I served with Garlic Cous Cous and corn on the cob. Will make again and will pass on.

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2004
If you like a cake that is heavy, spongy, and crumbly at the same time, this one is for you. I followed this to the tee, even using Herseys brand coccoa and it came out cruddy. After I frosted it a piece just fell off! I know I am not the only one who did not like it nor had any luck.

Caramelized-Onion, Spinach, and Bacon Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2003
I made this this evening and while it was very tasty, I had a very hard time with the pizza dough resulting in a very chewy crust. Also my amateur attepmt at preparing the dough called for a thick mess that tore and did not fit the pan allowing a good amount of excess liquid to spill on to the counter and drip onto the floor (the dog didn't mind!) I will use the prepared crust (thus negating the light concept) in the future to make this a truely easy quiche. My husband and I both love this and for 5 points per slice, it's a keeper! : )

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2003
This was pretty good! Easy to put together, low in WW Points (3). Lacking in the flavor department slightly, but I used reduced sodium Soy Sauce. Next time I will add onions. I added water chestnuts...it was 'eh' with them. The sauce was good though, I may use that as a base for other recipes. I will try marinading it in Sherry like another reviewer suggested next time...there will be one!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2003
This was very good! To lower the fat and calorie content, I subistuted the 3 eggs for 5 egg whites and the cup on oil for unsweetened applesauce (if you do this, do not over stir). Also, my neighbor had given me half a bushel of summer squash, so I used that in lieu of zucchini. It turned out wonderful! This is a keeper!

Thanksgiving Meatloaf

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2003
Lower the fat in this tasty dish by using 3 egg whites and water. Add any extras to give more flavor, I add onions and garlic (a friend of mine adds peppers). This is a great 2 point per serving for those on Weight Watchers when prepared as mentioned above. My picky (and I do mean picky) toddler absolutly adores this! Very easy to make too! Sometimes to give the more tradional meatlaof appearence, I add tomato sauce. Not necessary, but tasty nonetheless!

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
I made this for a dinner party. The flavor was different and it was tasty. I was not really to my personal taste, but my husband and our guests enjoyed it. I doubled the sauce as well. I will pass his on and I may make this again if requested.

Chicken and Red Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2003
First, I scaled this to 3 servings and used boneless skinless chicken. I added extra garlic and also threw in a Vidalia onion. I browned the chicken, not fully cooked though. I then added my brown sugar, halving as I tasted my wine, a cabernet, as it was a somewhat sweeter wine. I cooked it as directed for 5 minutes and lowered it and added fresh, sliced Baby Bellas. Covered and finished cooking. Came out moist and delicious! I aroma is just to die for! Served with plain ol' mashed potatoes and green beans. Will make again! Oh, and if you use a bad wine it will turn out bad...it's the golden rule with cooking...never cook with a wine you won't drink, because when the alcohol cooks off, all you are left with is the flavor!

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2003
We really enjoyed this! I used a too thick leftover london broil that rufused to cook (completely raw in the middle) on the grill the night before at was a little over 1.5 lbs and it had been slathered in A-1 and Canadian Seasoning. I leiu of canned I opted for 8 oz fresh Baby Bella (Cimini) Mushrooms, which I added from the start and they held up wonderfully. Also gave it much more garlic than called for (we're garlic lovers) and added Seasoned Salt as per other reviewrs suggestions that it came out under seasoned. I used a fat free sour cream at the end to kick a wee bit of the fat content out and we enjoyed it over egg noodles. The worst part about this recipe is having to smell it and drool until dinner time! : ) Served with a fresh whole wheat bread from the bakery. Will definitly make again!

Savory Diet Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2003
This was good, but the chicken comes out too dry, I would suggest marinating in a fat free salad dressing or applying a rub before hand. The veggies were tasty, I used baby carrots and they came out tender with the right amout of Worchestire taste. And I added fat free sour cream to my potatos and topped it with the onions.
