Halibut Supreme

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I wanted to make something special for New Years. I made this - followed a review to replace 1/2 the cheddar with parmesan cheese, otherwise followed the recipe. The fish was very moist and flavorful and would be a good dish on it’s own. However, with Halibut being so expensive - I gave attention to sides and presentation. I topped the fish on ultra creamy mash potatoes, sided with seared scallops and parmesan asparagus - all great recipes found at allrecipes. I'm a decent cook and will say this was one of the best dishes I've ever made. The presentation was good and the taste was phenomenal! We will be raving about this meal throughout the New Year. Happy New Year and thanks for a great recipe!

Cod with Italian Crumb Topping

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
I make fish fairly often and look for variations. Read a few reviews for this recipe and eliminated the egg, mixed 2T light mayo with about 1t fresh lemon juice and brushed fish with this mixture. I lightly sauted two green onions and two minced garlic cloves in about 2T olive oil. I used this to grease my pan and placed the fish on top - yum! I did not use garlic powder, salt, or italian seasoning, but used italian panko crumbs. Everything else the same. I made creamy mashed potaoes and topped the potatoes with the fish. Nice presentation and everyone raved over how good it was.

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2011
After reading several reviews, I added 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla and increased the oats by 1/2 cup because my batter was a bit moist. I did not have the butterscotch chips, so I tried Herseys Cinnamon chips instead - OMG. This is the best cooking I have ever made!!! Rave reviews and recipe requests from those who have had the pleasure of satisfying their sweet tooth with this wonderful, wonderful cookie. Thank You. If you took all the 5 star cookie recipes, this would certainly be one of the top prices! Thanks for sharing!

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Very easy and absolutely Delicious! I used 1/4 agave syrup (low glycemic index) in place of the sugar, added almond slices, and garnished with blue cheese. I also followed another review and used raspberry balsamic vinegar in place of the white wine vinegar. It turned out very sweet and tangy. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

Butternut Squash Cakes

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
This was a great addition replacing the starch from our plate. I did substitute some ingredients, Chili powder (1 TBSP)for the curry, Coconut flour for the corn, and I needed two eggs for the batter to stick. Very tasty, everyone at the table liked it and requests it again. Will be great for breakfast too! My son said it was like hash-browns. Thanks - would never have thought to do this with squash.

Slow Cooker Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
Excellent recipe! minor changes - added a can of diced tomatoes and several dashes of Franks hot sauce - just added some flavor, not hot. I used 4 cups broth, 2 cups water. The store was out of 15 bean soup mix so I used the dried great northern white beans (16 oz bag) in place of it and omitted the can of northern white beans, of course. Otherwise I followed the recipe and will use again whenever I have a ham bone. Blending two cups of soup and adding back in one hour prior to serving helped to slightly thicken up and enhanced flavor. thanks for the recipe!

Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
This is an incredible recipe that I have made a few time now. Today's version I followed a suggestion to use cheddar cheese in place of the Velveeta. I love cheddar, so I went for it. Should you be inclined, only use the cheddar as garnish. Using the cheddar in the recipe does not dissolve and the more you heat the more it clumps! The original recipe is awesome and I will stick with it from now on. Thanks for a great recipe.

Whole Grain Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
This is a wonderful cookie. Healthy but doesn't taste like it. Hey, what they don't know won't hurt um. I did substituted the walnuts with almond flour and reduced the cinnamon by nearly half - that is what I had on hand. I used dark chocolate chips - yum. I followed the advise to slightly smash when taking out of the oven to cool to prevent crumbling with success. We really enjoyed these cookies and I will make them regularly. The only change I will make next time is using equal amounts of cherries and dark chocolate chips (3/4 cups each). They were chocolaty with a hint of tart cherry. I'd like to equal that out a bit since I like the tart as much as I like chocolate! Thanks for a fantastic recipe!

Magnificent Cheesy Brown Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
made as directed adding cooked chicken. Extremely tasty with the cheese. I will be adding cheese on a regular basis to my brown rice. Amazing how good it tastes bringing boring brown rice to popping yum-yum. The onions and peppers gave a sweet balance. This is a super easy recipe that you will make over and over again.

Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
Following reviews, I made just a few changes. I added 3 Hillshire Farm Hot Links diced and only used 3 cans of peas. The hot links add enough heat to eliminate the need for red pepper or hot sauce. This is a very different recipe for me - somewhere between chili and gumbo. Served to family and surprise guests - ugh! Everyone really liked it. Thanks for the recipe - it's a keeper!

Seared Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
followed advise to toss ingrediants in bag including parmesan cheese and added about 1/4 cup of white wine to the pan. cooked quickly to sear and give the carmelized color, but not overdone to avoid rubbery scallops. Beautiful and tasted great!

Cream Cheese Frosting II

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
Sooo Yummy! I love cream cheese frosting. I did increase the sugar a bit to tone down the tang of the cheese for my pumpkin ginger bread, and would recommend you add sugar to your preference starting with recipe amount for base.

Thai Shrimp and Cabbage

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
This is a super tasty and easy dish to put together quickly (does it get any better than that)! I had red cabbage on hand and it worked out fine. Otherwise the only significant change I made was replacing the soy sauce with Bragg's Liquid Aminos (healthy substitute) and eliminated the cilantro. I really liked having a vegetable (cabbage) in place of a starch (rice).

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
what a nice alternative to spaghetti! Not complicated and easy to make. I marinated my chicken with a small lemon for several hours (tenderizes beautifully) then cooked it with 1 garlic clove minced and about 1/4c diced onion. I then prepared as directed adding 1/2 cup mushrooms (didn't need it). Turned out great!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
I have made this dish probably a dozen times and just realized I never rated it. This dish ALWAYS turns out great and is requested often! The recipe is very forgiving on ingrediants too. Tonight I used dried onions instead of fresh and added mushrooms - and served over wheat pasta. Yum! I frequently add chopped garlic too. This dish is excellent over brown rice - adds so much flavor. If you like basalmic vingegar even a little bit, you will love this recipe. Make sure you brown your chicken first to make sure it stays moist after simmering.

Sloppy Joe Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Super easy and delicious - these words seldom go together! I procrastinated going to the grocery store and wanted to whip something up from my somewhat bare cupboards - I was out of Worchester sauce - very concerning, so I substituted 4-5 dashes Frank’s hot sauce and 4-5 dashes liquid smoke to a doubled recipe (be careful with liquid smoke – a dab will do ya). I added two minced garlic cloves and ¼c dry onions (let them soak in water to reabsorb moisture for 3-4 minutes prior to adding) to the ground beef while browning. I used all the other seasonings including the garlic and onion. This was so tasty my husband ate what was left on my plate! What a find; I know this recipe will be a staple in my house. Thanks for sharing!!!

Ultra Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I've made these potatoes twice now. The first time I was low on broth and did not boil the potatoes in broth, but just added when mashing. They were good and a do again. The second time I boiled as directed in the broth and could not believe the difference it made. The broth enhances the flavor emensely. They were fabulous and I am doubtful I will ever make them anyother way. I am making them again today for my New Years dinner :-)

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
I've made these twice according to the recipe with the same batch (I froze half the dough). The first time they turned out OK, but they were a bit dry and crumbly without much peanut batter. I baked them for the recommended 12 minutes and although they did not look overdone, they were. I made the other half last night, but added a half cup of raisens (1 cup for recipe) and baked for 9 minutes - they turned out great and it was amazing the difference in peanut butter flavor. Great Recipe - be careful not to over bake!
