Balsamic Bruschetta

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
easy and delicious! recipe is very large, so unless you are making a full meal out of it or having a very large party, halve it.

White Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2008
absolutely perfect cookie. i made the recipe just as it called for only had to cook them another 5 mins at 350 and they are honestly just like those individually wrapped ones you buy at a coffee shop! yum yum....

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
this recipe is healthy (when you sub butter for a healthier alternative!), quick and easy to prepare and a hit w/ everyone. instead of apples, i used 4 cans of cling peaches in a light sauce. yum yum!

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
holy quick, easy and yummy! as many others have commented, the sauce can be doubled and you won't be disappointed. i changed a few minor things - browned the chicken in a mixture of 3 tbsp olive oil and lemon juice (2 splashes) instead of the herb mixture recommended. i saved the herbs for the sauce concoction, as they taste more fresh that way. i did not use the lemon pepper since i already added lemon juice to brown the chicken. and i do not feel you need to add salt with capers in the recipe. i also used fresh minced garlic in lieu of powdered garlic and added some black and red pepper (just a wee bit) to taste. and of course, the dill weed, which balanced out the saltiness very nicely. i must say, i have tried other lemon caper sauces before and this one turned out the best by far. i served it with an asparagus risotto and they really complemented one another nicely. thanks for the foundation for a delicious dinner - my hubby ate 2 pieces of chicken and my 13 month old son gobbled it up!!

Risotto with Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2008
i halved this recipe and used canned asparagus instead of fresh and added some additional spices (garlic in the saute phase and black pepper to season at the end). it turned out absolutely delicious! next time will make the whole recipe for more leftovers! ;)

Banana Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
my family and friends loved this bread the last holiday season. i have a special pan w/ a harvest scene on it that i used when baking the loaves and wrapped it up nice and pretty and gave as gifts! i followed someone else's advice and subbed apple sauce for the oil and one more banana and it was delicious!

Roast Pumpkin and Feta Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
this recipe was amazing! but i made a few subtle changes as i felt they would be received better by my skeptical husband who kept saying 'you are making pumpkin what? isn't pumpkin supposed to be for pie?'... i pureed all of the pumpkin, added some celery salt, a bit more garlic than the recipe called for, added an extra cube of vegetable stock and mixed all of the feta into the mixture rather than serving it on top as described. it was delicious (and still is)...

Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
very good! i added dashes of mustard and garlic powder, as well as a splash of worcestershire sauce. it was a smashing success at my New Year's Eve Party! only problem was my new fondue pot, which i couldn't get to keep the right temperature - it was too hot or too cold...

Strawberry Shortcake

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Fan-flipping-tastic!! I followed the advice of many others and did only 2 tbsp baking powder and increased the sugar to 1/2 cup. I mixed the white sugar with brown sugar (half parts) and substituted 1/2 cup butter for the shortening. Also added a dab of cinnamon and vanilla to the mixture and then topped it with both vanilla bean ice cream and whipped cream. YUM YUM YUM. Having leftovers for breakfast!!!

Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2010
PHENOMENAL!!! one regular size butternut squash was just right for this recipe. i added sauteed spinach with the bottom layer and brown mushrooms for the middle layer. that made the PERFECT combo for a yummy vegetarian meal... if you can't possibly forego meat, add shredded chicken to a layer and i am sure you will not be disappointed!

Awesome Eggplant Rollatine

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
Fantastic dish! I did the lasagna version as some others did and my kids gobbled it up! I added diced mushrooms and some spices to the cheese mixture for the 'layer' and used Italian breadcrumb mix from Whole Foods in lieu of the homemade coating called for in the recipe. And I only used one large eggplant sliced thin lengthwise and that was more than enough for a 9x13 pan.

Asparagus, Feta and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
fantastic recipe! i did change it slightly based upon reviews plus took a shortcut and used canned asparagus, and a large vine-ripened tomato diced really small, halved the vinegar/oil, and used chicken broth and garlic to cook the couscous (used Israeli variety) and my kids and hubby all ate seconds and asked for it for lunch tomorrow - THANK YOU!!! :)

Cream of Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
I followed Dee's review and made it a bit spicy/savory. I also added about 1/8 cup brown sugar. In addition, you can save a bit of time by beginning the broth/pumpkin mixture while the onions are simmering. I served this as the starter course for Christmas dinner and it was a big hit. Thanks!
