Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
These were good! I agree with the other reviewers that this is more like a cake, so be prepared to serve it that way. I followed this recipe as written with a couple of minor changes: I used whole wheat flour, added 1/2c chocolate chips, added 1/2tsp pumpkin pie spice, and added 1/2tsp nutmeg. I also added 1/2tsp cinnamon to the frosting. Some people said there wasn't enough frosting, but I thought there was plenty.

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
These were excellent! The only change I made was I used whole wheat flour. Will make again and again and again!

Very Easy Crab Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2006
This came out pretty good. I agree with the previous Ritz cracker comment. I bought a craker called Sociables, and it doesn't have that buttery taste like Ritz that would go so well with this recipe. I am going to buy some Ritz tomorrow! And I think I will dice up some green onions on top to add a little more zip.

Peanut-Ginger Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2006
This marinade was really good. I will make it again. I marinaded it overnight... about 20 hours actually. Chicken came out tender and spicy (I don't think this is very kid friendly due to the kick.) After grilling the chicken skewers I did feel like I needed some type of dipping sauce for the chicken. Either I will reserve some of the marinade next time, or make a peanut dipping sauce. I stuck with the recipe except a few minor switches due to what I had in my cupboard. I used natural peanut butter instead of regular, rice vinegar instead of white, grated ginger instead of fresh ground, and red pepper flakes instead of ground.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
YUM- this was very good. I added a little extra lime as other reviewers suggested. One note about cooking couscous... this was my first time cooking plain couscous (I've only cooked the flavored kind out of a box). With following the instructions exactly, my first batch of couscous came out too mushy. You can't have mushy couscous with this recipe... it has to have good separation. My second batch was perfect. I took 3 minutes off the cooking time and immediately removed it from the heat and the pan and stirred it up in a large bowl until it cooled a bit. If you leave it in the hot pan, even after taking it off the heat, it will continue to cook and get mushy underneath. Also, another reviewer's batch came out muddy. To prevent this, I rinsed the beans and corn thoroughly and placed them in a strainer in a sink for a couple of hours to dry out.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
These were good, but tasted just like oatmeal raisin cookies to me. I followed the recipe exactly. I think next time I'll just make oatmeal raisin cookies!

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
This will be my zucchini bread recipe from now on, it's very good. However I did change it up a bit according to other reviewers' suggestions, so I cannot rate the original recipe. I rated the recipe based on the following changes: added 1/2 tsp. nutmeg, added an extra cup zucchini, used whole wheat flour. Added the crumbly topping as recommended by MarieClaire (I actually halved her recipe based on other reviewers' suggestions: 1/2c flour [used whole wheat], 1/2 c brown sugar, 1 tbsp butter, 1/4 c chopped walnuts, 1 tsp. cinnamon). YUM! Next time I'll substituting half of the oil for unsweetened apple sauce to make it a bit healthier.

Shrimp and Crab Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2006
These were good! Like other reviewers though, I could not find green enchilada sauce so I had to use red. I also used corn tortillas (like the taste better and much fewer calories). I used the artificial crab meat that you buy in the seafood dept. Overall very good, but I will make again with the green sauce (I'll try an authentic mexican grocery store) and review again. I think these will make the regular rotation!

Easy Tilapia with Wine and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
This was OK. Needed something though... I added lots of lemon before serving. The problem might have been because I used dried basil, not fresh. So I might give it another try with fresh basil because it's easy and healthy. But otherwise I followed the recipe exactly.

Quick Shrimp 'n' Pineapple Stir-fry

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
This didn't have much flavor. I added soy sauce to jazz it up a little bit. I liked that it was healthy and quick though.

Grilled Asian Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2006
This was good, I'll make it again. The marinade time didn't seem like enough but it was perfect, especially when basting with the sauce during grilling. Served with grilled pineapple circles.

Light and Creamy Brown Sugar and Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2006
If you are looking for a fluffy, chocolate-y frosting, this is the one! It was perfect for my dark chocolate cake. The recipe called for unsweetened cocoa. I used Hershey's Cocoa... it did not say "unsweetened" on it. So I wasn't sure if it was sweetened or unsweetened. Anyway, it turned out delicious! A++++!

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
This was good! I made it to serve at a BBQ. I substituted regular mayo with FF Miracle Whip and it tasted great. No need for full fat mayo... I would recommend to use the light or fat free version. I reduced the onion to half the amount as recommended. I also followed others' recommendations and steamed the broccoli a few minutes to make it not so hard. I also used tri color tortellini and I think it spruces it up a bit.

Baked Omelet Roll

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
This did not work for me! I could not roll it up, and I buttered the pan as instructed. We ended up eating it in squares, and it tasted to me just like regular eggs... won't try again!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
The grocery store ran out of ground turkey so I made these with lean ground beef. Added a few splashes of W. sauce. Not bursting with flavor, but good. I bet the flavor comes out more when you make it with turkey.

Salmon with Dill

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
This was good, I'll make it again. It tasted just a tad salty to me, I think it was the salt/onion powder combo. Next time I will reduce or omit the salt... it's not necessary.

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2006
This was very good, I will make it again for sure! I made a bundt cake, and I only used about half of the frosting... it was perfect. I couldn't imagine using all that frosting. I also had to eliminate the pecans because my dad can't eat them. I was bummed about that. I can only imagine how this tastes when you add the pecans!!!

Jambalaya II

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
I used 2 lbs chicken (thighs were on sale so I used them instead of a whole chicken), 1 lb andoiulle (cajun)sausage, and 3/4 lb shrimp. I took everyone's advice and omitted one green pepper. It was absolutely perfect, will add to the regular rotation!
