Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
I use the same amount of green beans, but I use fresh and steam them thoroughly thru, until a brilliant green and can be stabbed with a fork, then add them to the dish. Also, I carmelize my sweet onion (which I slice into strips rather than a chop), before adding them to the dish.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Amazing recipe. I did exactly as listed except that my fennel was moldy and couldn't get seeds form it. I can see how fennel would have been a great addition, but even without it, it was very good!!

German Rye Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2011
This bread is awesome but I was very upset that at first glance it looked like entire time to make was 1 hr. I new this had to be a guesstimate since I've made bread before, but I was shocked when it said the initial set up time was 4 hours. I couldn't make it for the dinner party I had planned. The entire prep time should read about 5.5-6 hrs.

Pfeffernusse Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Awesome recipe! Suggestions to omit pepper is not accurate. Pfeffer means 'pepper' in German and is an essential ingredient. I used I82Many's suggestion to use white pepper instead of white (black pepper may be why some reviewers suggest leaving it out...the switch to white is important) and added 1 tsp allspice. Add anise to wet ingredients, not dry. While a glaze is nice, it's not traditional. Toss in powdered sugar once completely cooled and set up.

Baked Chicken Amandine

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
Awesome! I followed some other notes on cutting the fat some, but you HAVE to use butter. I think any substitute will make it flat on flavor (probably why low-fat versions get low ratings). I substituted the mayo for fat free sour cream, the cheddar for reduced fat cheddar, and I used only 3 TBS of butter instead of the 4. I decided on fresh broccoli which I steamed for about 5 mins before I put it in the dish. Also, I sauteed about 4 small shallots in olive oil which I included in the broccoli layer.

Uncle Jesse's French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
It makes about half of the toast (7-8 slices). Good recipe! I added a bit of milk, cut the cloves and ginger down to 1/2 t each and added 1t vanilla.

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2011
Wow! This was awesome! Instead of asparagus, I used fresh green beans. I used about 1/2 tsp garlic salt instead of garlic clove because I felt lazy. Also, I threw in about a 1/4 tsp toasted sesame oil, but I don't think that made much of a difference. I baked them at 425 as suggested but for about 15 mins. We couldn't stop eating them!!

Sweet Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
I too omitted the sugar. I used fat free sweetened condensed milk and fat free Miracle Whip. I think next time I will halve the dressing recipes since it made A LOT and I had to toss about half of it. I added about 2 tsp hot sauce to give it a little zip (I love sweet/hot) and about 4oz mild cheddar cut into small squares. I used half a green pepper and half a red. It was a GREAT pasta salad!!

Peanut Butter Cake II

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
Holy mother of peanut butter cakes (and my family are very discerning pb cake connoisseurs)! This was awesome! I did it exactly as the recipe stated. The only thing I would do next time is cut the frosting recipe in half. That was A LOT left over! It suggested 325* for 25 mins but I ended up having to bake it for about 40 mins. basically, set it for 22 mins and check every five. I know every oven is different, but mine is new (gas) and it still took a lot longer than expected. I chopped up some Reese's cups and sprinkled them on top and stuck them to the side. Great addition.

Chicken Curry I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
Excellent. I used PaigeCentral's idea of adding cream to it. Instead of her yogurt I added light sour creme (I didn't have plain yogurt). It was very tasty. I cooked everything according to the recipe and then placed it in the oven on 200F for 3 hours. I didn't add anything to thicken it because it absorb a lot of the juice and what was left I was able to pour on the rice. I used red curry (spicy) and omitted the pepper. Also, I used smoked paprika which was tasty.

Indian Cauliflower

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
Very tasty. However, next time I will steam it, dry it, and then baste it before putting it in the oven. It was very hard to cut because it was so tough.

PHILADELPHIA Double-Chocolate Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This is YUMMY! However, I messed up and didn't melt the chocolate chips and just added them so it was more a chocolate chip cheesecake, but oddly enough, it was GREAT! I then melted an 8 oz. bag of milk chocolate chips and spread it all over the top. Once it was refrigerated, it hardened and was a great top crust. One other variation was that I used the entire bag of Oreos and not just 24. For both the semi-sweet and milk chocolate chips I used Ghiradelli brand.

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
This was a great recipe. Although I followed the ingredient list, I made mine low fat. Instead of frying, bake the strips on 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until the center is white. Also, I used skim mild instead of buttermilk. Spray the cookie sheet with fat free butter flavored spray and voila! very low fat tenders! If the powder looks like it's not baked golden, don't woory, if the chicken is done, so is the breading. I also added a teaspoon each of rosmary, thyme and pepper.
