Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
Fabulous recipe! Per other reviewers suggestions I substituted oil for the butter then added 1 tsp. nutmeg and 1 tsp. cinnamon to the mix (was out of vanilla or would have added that as well, but honestly they didn't need them!). I had 4 medium sized incredibly ripe bananas so I used them all and actually could have gotten 14 good sized muffins out of the batter (instead I got 12 HUGE muffins, Mmmm!). So moist and flavorful, perfect texture, baked up in around 18 minutes. I was busy doing other things so added the topping when I popped them into the oven instead of waiting til last 5 minutes as other reviewers suggested but it didn't make any difference..the topping was wonderfully tasty! Just what I wanted on this cold winter day, my 3 year old had an entire huge muffin to himself and is asking for more! Thank you so much for sharing!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I was not impressed with this recipe, but I think it could be improved upon...it's a good base. I followed it exactly for the first batch and the biscuits were rather flat and way too salty. For the second batch I cut the salt to 1tsp., used margarine instead of shortening and didn't knead them or roll them out, just patted them to about 1.25 inch and then cut out. I had better results with a small circle as far as rising goes. These were nowhere near the Grands biscuits but I'll keep working with recipe to see if I can get there. Thanks for a great base!

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
My hubby and I agree..this is the best mexican I've ever made! I am not normally a fan of made at home mexican (hubby loves it, however) but enchiladas just sounded good so I decided to give this a try. Oh my gosh, completely fantastic! I will definitely make this again and again (doubt hubby will let me forget about it!). I did everything just as the recipe states..I did have trouble making all of the filling fit into 5 tortillas so it ended up more like a casserole than straight up enchiladas but we didn't care, it was too tasty!

Bean Quesadillas

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
These are great quesadillas...even good cold. They make a great snack or a nice dinner with the addition of some rice, lettuce, tomato and sour cream on the side.

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
This were very good muffins..but I even cut the cloves down to 1/2 tsp. and it was still a bit clove heavy. I used a 15 oz. can of pumpkin instead of the fresh puree, for time reasons, and they were very moist and tasty....I will just cut the clove down even more next time.

It's Chili by George!!

I'm not a huge fan of chili, but my husband is. We tried this and he raved about how great it was, and I even had two bowls myself! This is a fantastic recipe...even the leftovers are already gone!!!

Pumpkin Spiced and Iced Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2005
This may very well be the best cookie I've ever had! They were moist and tender and my husband even preferred them over chocolate chip..his favorite! I did add at least 1 tsp and a half of cinammon as well as the pumpkin spice, and instead of chocolate chips I used Nestle white morsels. For the icing I added close to 2 tsp of cinammon as well to the sugar, vanilla and milk and just drizzled a bit over each cookie....ohmigosh! Everyone raves over these...I think they'll be a new holiday tradition. Make These Cookies!

Precious Pineapple Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2005
This cake went over very well with my family. I made the three layers as suggested and they were very thin..I might make only two next time. I added an extra egg to the mix and used a store bought cream cheese frosting then added flaked coconut to finish off the outside. My husband said it was one of the best cakes he's had and my father in law, who loves fruity cakes, thought it was great. Will definitely make this one again.

Lazygirl's Ground Turkey Stroganoff

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2005
Fairly good...husband said it reminded him of what his mother used to make in his childhood. I didn't strictly adhere to the recipe though....sauteed 3 cloves garlic along with the onion and turkey and seasoned with salt and pepper as well as a little garlic powder. I completely bypassed the boullion (didn't have any on hand..imagine that!) so as I added the mushroom soup I also added a small 8 oz. container of light sour cream and a small can of sliced mushrooms along with the paprika, didn't add any water at all. It was very creamy and thick, next time I might add some fresh peas for color and to add another veggie to the table. We served ours with garlic toast and broccoli/cauliflower medley. Will surely make this again.

Vegetable Lo Mein

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2005
Not at all like restaurant lo mein, but still very good. I used lo mein noodles, increased the garlic and added other veggies (baby corn, bamboo shoots, etc.) and came up with a very filling meal. I did substitute only 1 tablespoon of brown sugar for the honey (didn't have the honey on hand) and it was still a bit sweet, might cut down on that in the future but otherwise a great dinner.

Michelle's Coconut Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2005
This was a wonderful dish..my husband loved it. I did add extra garlic and curry, and a dash of cayenne, but otherwise followed directions and ended up with a wonderful dinner. I served it over basmati rice which I think really added to the flavor. The only trouble was that I found it a bit too runny...could have been my coconut milk though, I don't know. We'll definitely have this one again.

Veggie Fajitas

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2005
It's an okay recipe that could be great with a little dressing up. I added extra garlic and substituted portobello mushrooms for the regular mushrooms, which gave it a meatier texture, but I felt that the pepper ratio was way over the top...not so for my husband who liked it but would have added more onion. It seemed to need more spice, not necessarily heat though. We will have this again, but I will definitely be fiddling around with the ingredients when we do.

Curried Chicken with Mango Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2005
This recipe had incredible flavor, was such a change from the normal boring chicken recipe. I did take the advice of others and tweak it a bit....I marinated the chicken all day in 2 tsp curry powder, 1/2 tsp. ground ginger, black pepper and salt, then sauteed until just done and golden brown in skillet, removing chicken then adding 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1/4 cup of vidalia onion and a dash of olive oil. When the onion was just translucent I added the chicken broth (which I increased to 1 1/2 cups per someone else's recommendation, we don't like crisp rice) and all other ingredients. Near the end I added the chicken, cubed, back in along with an additional 1 tsp of curry, red pepper flakes, a dash of cayenne for some heat (using Madras curry powder, not enough heat for us!) and the result was an absolute fantastic dish that my husband is still raving about. The mangoes added a wonderful sweet tartness that went so well with the curry and slight pop from the cayenne. I also added grated carrot and thawed frozen peas in the last 10 minutes or so which gave us a great, healthy meal in less than an hour, and only one dish to wash!!! Please try this recipe, and Thank You! Linda!

Portobello Mushroom Caps and Veggies

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2005
This was one of the best recipes I have tried so far! The flavor was incredible, very filling but healthy. I did make a few adjustments....I added the soy sauce while cooking, and dashed a bit of hot pepper sauce as well as a bit of cayenne and red pepper flakes near the end of cooking as well. It had a slight bite, but overall great flavor....loved those portobellos!!! Try this recipe!

Pasta with Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2005
This was a nice, light, easy dinner although I made some adjustments. I took someone else's cue and added garlic prior to adding veggies and I don't think I would have liked it at all without it. I added a little more chicken broth than called for and sauteed the pasta in the skillet with all the veggies before serving to help coat the pasta and give it a nice flavor. A good suggestion as well is to add the red pepper flakes at the end of the cooking process instead as a topping...the pepper gave it a nice little kick that it wouldn't have had otherwise. Overall a decent recipe that has limitless possibilities as far as toss ins go. We'll make it again.

Dietetic Banana Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2005
This recipe is fantastic. My 2 year old (who won't eat anything!) even loves them. For a little added extra I added 1/4 cup chopped walnuts. My son isn't a diabetic but I wanted to keep away from the more sugary muffins, even so I added a little white chocolate chip just for interest and he loved that even more. The mango-peach applesauce is a great suggestion. Thanks for this recipe.

Luau Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2005
I gave this recipe 4 stars because the basis was great but it needed some tweaking. I precooked the chicken in a skillet with a little olive oil, salt, pepper and a pinch of cayenne. I doubled the sauce, added the green pepper, onion and added pineapple tidbits and cooked them all together for approximately 15 minutes to soften the veggies and then added the chicken and about 1 tsp. of red pepper flakes. It turned out wonderfully, sweet but with a kick from the pepper flakes. I served it with fried rice (brown rice with fresh peas, green onion and carrot) and a nice green salad. My husband and his family loved it.
