Ciabatta

Reviewed: May 6, 2005
Really very good! I used regular all-purpose flour and it still turned out very well.

Yellow Squash Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2005
I used half zucchini and half yellow squash. I also added a clove of chopped garlic to the mixture before frying. It was delicious!

Orange Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
I thought this recipe was great! I did use some left over pork from a cranberry-orange flavored roast that I had instead of the chicken. I might add just a touch less garlic next time.

Italian Roast Beef I

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2006
Great Recipe! I used a chuck roast because that was I had on hand. Because chuck is a fattier piece of meat, I omitted the oil. Placed it in a slow cooker instead of on the stove and let it cook on low for 6 hours. Turned out great!

Yogurt Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
We really enjoyed this recipe. I made a couple of modifications: added cumin and a dash of tumeric to the yogurt and lemon juice. It added a nice spice to it and an added bonus was the chicken underneath the crumb crust was yellow, hinting at the lemon flavor. I followed other's advice and let it marinate for an hour. I didn't have bread crumbs so used Ritz crackers. It needed a couple minutes underneath the broiler to crisp up the crust.

Banana Tortilla Snacks

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
I make these for my two pre-school children. The only thing I do different is that I sprinkle the banana (which I slice) and honey with cinnamon! Make sure to roll like a burrito to make it less messy.

Banana Muffins with a Crunch

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
These were awesome! I varied from the original recipe only slightly. I used 1/3 whole wheat flour and 2/3 unbleached all purpose. I also cut the sugar by 1/4. Finally, I used chopped pecans instead of walnuts. Delicious!

Thai-Style Tilapia

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
This recipe was pretty good! I think it would have been better if I had had the lemon grass on hand but as it is I substituted cilantro and added a bit of lime juice to the coconut milk sauce. I will probably make again as it is really an easy and tasty dish even without the lemon grass.

Saucy Pineapple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 9, 2006
I really enjoyed this recipe. Make sure that you use sweet chili sauce and not the hot stuff because it will be WAY too hot if you do. I also used the sauce on chicken and I think I enjoyed it more on the chicken.

German Baby

Reviewed: May 28, 2006
This was great! While it was cooking I warmed up some strawberries, bananas, & pineapple in a non-stick skillet with a 1 tbl. butter & 1/4 cup brown sugar. Topped the servings of the "pancake" with that and then added some light whipped cream sprinkled with cinnamon. The only suggestion I would have would be to use unsalted butter. The salted butter gave it more of a savory taste.

Zucchini Bread III

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2006
This was a really good zucchini bread. The only thing I thought should happen would be to cut the cinnamon in half. I think the full amount is too strong and leaves a slight aftertaste.

Easy White Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
Great recipe. My dh can't eat tomatos due to acid reflux but loves chili. This worked great for us. I added extra cumin and used much less cayenne than called for. I also served with lime wedges and that added a great flavor brightener to the dish. Overall, a great recipe!

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
These were really great - happy to give them a 5 star rating. To make the dough, I used my food processor. This really made the job easy. I've now got a new biscuit recipe to use which I feel is healthier than my standard white biscuit recipe.

Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2007
Great recipe. I cut in half and it filled a 9 x 13 just right. Wonderful with cream cheese frosting. Didn't add raisins but think they would be wonderful in this recipe.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
This was awesome - I got great compliments on it at a Super Bowl Party. A few people requested the recipe. I didn't add the cheese - just seemed over the top. I also baked it at 250 for a couple of hours before the party instead of using a crockpot.

Sunday Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2007
Great recipe, easy to make. The dough is very, very sticky. I used lots of flour to roll them out. These have a slightly sweeter taste to them.

Smothered Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2007
I really enjoyed this recipe - thought it was great but my husband was not as sold on it. He thought it needed some bbq sauce to dip it in - will probably do this next time. I also bumped up the lemon pepper to 1 tsp to give some more zest and thought that worked nicely.
