English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
Used more butter and oj to get the right consistency. I halved the recipe, cut them into triangles and had 6 delicious scones. Used my food processor was very easy. Next time I will top them with cinnamon and sugar and put in more orange zest. I will be making these scones again soon.

Baked Pumpkin, Sweet Potato, and Coconut Milk Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
I used leftover pumpkin filling, a whole acorn squash and a large sweet potato. I also used light coconut milk. It was what I had on hand. I used my immersion blender and added about a teaspoon of garam masala. That was just the kick it needed.

Marinated Green Beans with Olives, Tomatoes, and Feta

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Very good. Used fresh tomatoes and green beans, but didn't have fresh oregano. I also skipped the olives (watching sodium). The salad was great even with my changes. I bet it would be better the next day, if we had any leftovers.

Chinese-Style Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
I steamed my broccoli omitting the need for oil and salt because the soy sauce is salty enough. Substituted rice vinegar, cut back on sesame oil (taste preference) and added grated ginger and chopped scallions. The ginger gave it a little extra pop. I served it cold and it was devoured. Thanks for the recipe.

Tomato Basil Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
great salad. I scaled it down to 4 servings. I used my fresh tomatoes from the garden, and extra basil. (It has grown well this summer.) We loved it. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

S'more Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
Wow! These were a delicious treat. I used a 9x9 pan, 4 graham crackers, 1 c. mini marshmallows and 8 Hershey kisses chopped coarsely. They were perfect. I followed advice to add topping for the last five min. I also cut them while they were warm so the topping didn't pull off. The knife was messy, maybe I should have sprayed it with Pam first. I took half over to my neighbors, kept two for myself and froze the other two. I don't know how they froze, yet. Someone mentioned that they don't keep well (graham crackers stale). Maybe this will work out.

Chilled Strawberry Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
I loved this soup. I didn't have to heat the stove and that was a plus. I used fresh strawberries, skim milk, half and half and lemon yogurt - because that's what I had on hand. It was delicous. I put a dallup of yogurt on top for a garnish and swirled it with a spoon. It looked pretty enough to serve to guests. I'll make this recipe again, that's for sure.

Apricot Noodle Kugel

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
Wow! This kugel is terrific. I doubled the recipe to make enough for a potluck luncheon at work. I added peach nectar, instead of apricot - it was on sale. I chopped up some dried apricots in my food processor to replace the raisins. I don't really care for golden raisins. The cornflake topping really made the dish. I cut back on the butter, using 6 Tbs. instead of 1/2 cup in the topping. My grandmother was my inspiration for this dish and she would have been proud of me. It was almost as good as hers.

Gravy Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I've made this many times just as written and it is delicious. Tonight I decided to change it up a bit. I sauted a large chopped onion and added a small box of sliced mushrooms. I added 1/3 cup of sour cream with the soup and placed on top of chops. I topped the casserole with cornbread stuffing mix made from the box. It was great.

Stuffed Peppers for Two

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Yummy! These remind me of my dear grandmother. Stuffed peppers were one of her favorite meals. I normally use whatever I have on hand to make dinner. I didn't have quick rice, but I had some Success Bag rice. I cut the bag open and dumped the rice into the meat mixture. I cooked the peppers about an hour but the rice was not cooked. I added some more sauce on top of each pepper and cooked for another twenty minutes. They were delicious. Thanks for sharing this recipe with me.

Cowboy Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2009
I scaled this recipe to 1/4. It made 24 cookies. They are my new favorites. I used pecans instead of walnuts, and used a heaping teaspoon to drop cookies. They needed quite a bit of extra cooking time, so I ended cooking the second sheet at 375F. I also sprayed the cookie sheet with PAM on the second tray, since the cookies did not release easily on the first tray. I recommend these cookies. They are chewy and delicious.

Zucchini 'Noodles'

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
I doubled the garlic, used 1 Tbs. olive oil and a pat of butter, and added lemon zest and the juice from 1/2 a lemon. It was great. Thanks for sharing this recipe. It made a great summer lunch.

Perfect Pie Crust II

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
This crust was very easy. I complicated things by scaling the recipe to four servings. Then I used it to make three mini-pies in individual pie tins. I made two blueberry and one apricot. They were a hit. I used all butter and the Fresh Blueberry Pie II filling on this site.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
This recipe was a winner for us. I cut the breasts open and put in a slice of prosciutto and added the spinach mixture on top of the prosciutto. I browned them on the stove and threw the breasts, chicken broth and lemon juice in my crockpot to cook on low while I did some errands. They cooked up nicely. When I returned, I made some rice and thickened the sauce to make a gravy. Everyone was impressed by this dish. We'll have it again.

My Favorite Blueberry Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This is one of my favorite recipes, just like it is. Today I began making this recipe, then I realized I didn't have a lemon. What to do? My choices were orange or lime. Neither sounded too great with blueberries. Then I thought about cranberry orange. I could do that. I added dried cranberries, orange zest and walnuts. Substituted vanilla yogurt for the lemon and glazed them with orange juice, zest and powdered sugar. They were great. The cranberries added a nice color.

Lime Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
If you don't have the lime marinade, try using this combination: 1/2 c red wine vinegar, 1/4 c soy (low salt), 1/2 c olive oil, 1 T parsley, 1 t basil and oregano, and 1/2 t pepper.

Sweet Mustard Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
These were delicious. I marinated them for about 12 hours. While grilling the chops I cooked the excess marinade at the boiling point for 5 min. to make a sauce. (You must always boil marinade for 5 min. for safety.) Then I served the sauce on the side. It was delicious.

Ramen Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
Quick, easy and delicious! In addition to your ingredients I added pumpkin seeds, green onions, celery and dried cranberries. I used the prepackaged slaw with red and green cabbage. It was very colorful.

Mushroom Cube Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2009
Thank you for this delicious recipe, Marie. I made it just as you directed, but I added a splash of red wine. I served it over whole wheat noodles, which we hadn't used before. The sauce was delicious.
