Sweet Potato Biscuits

Reviewed: May 24, 2006
mmm, i'm eating it right now. i used margerine instead of shortening and added a little extra baking powder (to help it rise, after reading the reviews), about a half tablespoon of brown sugar, some cinnimon, allspice, and nutmeg. i microwaved the sweet potato for 10 minutes after poking holes in it and wrapping it in a damp paper towel to soften it. i give it 4 stars because the flavor is still not fantastic, and i don't think it would have been very good at all without the additions. note: make sure you add milk slowly. i didn't use the full 1/4 cup, and that's probably why some people have trouble getting their biscuits light and fluffy. add milk until everything just sticks together.

Morning Glory Muffins II

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2006
Changes: Went for half whole wheat flour, half white, split the oil with applesauce, and threw in some shredded zucchini, flax seed, and soy protein for good measure. Replaced sugar with Splenda for baking. Also made 12, not 18 muffins. I used pre-shredded carrots, but I think I would have been better off shredding them myself- it threw off the texture a bit. Slightly undercooked in the middle of the bigger ones, but that's my fault. They are delish, and I imagine they're pretty good for you with my modifications.

Spiced Turkey Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
This was AMAZING. My mother literally cried, it was so good. She claims it's the best turkey she's ever had, and and I'd have to agree. I used a 3 lb. turkey breast (the recipe calls for 1.5 lb.), and cooked uncovered at 350 F for an hour and a half. I doubled the sauce and spices, but ended up with too much of those. It came out perfect- absolutely moist and cooked through. I poured the juices over the final product. In terms of the cranberry sauce: I would really recommend increasing the brown sugar significantly- not as good for you, but the sauce was way too bitter without it.

Lentil Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
this may be the best quiche i've ever had. the vegetables filled 2 9-inch crusts (not deep dish), but i needed a little extra egg and milk. i just threw tons of spices in there, like oregano, basil, parsley, rosemary, thyme, and sage. the lentils filled out the taste well.

The Twenty Dollar Burger

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Good taste, but it was pretty hard to get them to stick together. If you squeeze the patties out inside paper towels before putting them on the grill, that helps.

Crab-Stuffed Catfish

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
Wow. I didn't expect this to be as delicious as it was. I added diced onion, garlic powder, and Worcestershire sauce to the crab filling, and sprinkled some lemon juice over the finished dish, which I think really added to the taste. My only gripe is that the fish was really hard to cut widthwise, but this was partially because my knives are pretty dull and partly because my fillet was very thin.

Hawaiian Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2008
Definitely a good idea to grill the pineapple and veggies separately from the chicken. I also made a dipping sauce using the leftover marinade.

Hearty Chicken Vegetable Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
SO delicious. I couldn't stop eating it! I left the peppers out because I don't like them.

Avocado Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2007
AMAZING. However, the topping isn't nearly enough for an entire baguette- I would double it. 1 baguette with enough topping would feed 4 or 5 people. I didn't use fresh basil, and I drizzled the olive oil instead of spraying.

Oatmeal and Wheat Flour Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Good, but no pancake recipe worth its salt will tell you to beat the batter "until smooth." You should always leave pancake batter lumpy, unless you want flat, rubbery pancakes.

Potato Dumplings

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
This was just OK. I'm not really familiar with "good" dumplings, but these were just bland. I'd add parsley and more salt for flavor.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
These were great! I used kidney beans as recommended. I prepped the sweet potatoes by baking them in a 450 deg. oven for an hour, then peeling the skins off and mashing. I did make a few changes-I sautéed the onion and garlic with the spices first as another reviewer suggested, used dijon mustard, and replaced the soy sauce/cayenne with salt and pepper. I found that it did not need the 2c water. When baking the burritos, I lined the sheet with parchment paper and flipped them halfway through to get both sides crispy. This definitely made enough for 12 burritos made out of 8" tortillas. I ate it with plain greek yogurt, diced fresh tomatoes, and lettuce on top!

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
The taste was great, but it needed more broth and celery and less meat and potatoes. After quadrupling the broth, there was still barely enough. I added a little bit of red cooking wine to the meat along with the Worcestershire sauce.

Gingered Flank Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
Wow. Delicious. I marinated it overnight and made it in a skillet, and it was to die for. Served it with asparagus and mashed potatoes.

Gingery Quinoa-Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2008
I was a bit disappointed. This is missing something- perhaps some vegetable or chicken broth (or even apple cider?) poured over the squash while it is in the oven for the last time.

Mustard Crusted Tilapia

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
I made this as a single serving, but didn't end up with enough toppings- so I doubled. The taste was amazing enough to make up for this. I ate it with asparagus and brown rice- perfect.

Baked French Fries I

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
Very good, but they need salt and pepper, this makes them much less bland. I baked them at 400 for about 45 minutes. If you want a healthier option, substitute some or all of the oil with egg white. It's not quite as good (maybe deserving of 4 stars rather than 5), but it's definitely still tasty. EDIT: I tried these in the pan this time rather than baking. Microwaved pre-cut red potatoes, skins on, for about 8 min on high with a bit of water and chopped fresh garlic, then sprayed with low-cal butter spray and cooked over medium heat for about 10 min. Just as good, and quicker.

Tuna Salad With Fresh Dill

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
Didn't love it, didn't hate it. My biggest problem was that it was too thin. Next time, I'll add another can of drained tuna. I scooped it up with potato chips.

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
These were delicious, but by no means did each batch yield 30 cookies. I used a small cookie cutter, and rolled pretty thin. They're better rolled thicker, anyway.
