Apple Cranberry Tart

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
Right on with the tartness of the cranberries and the sweetness of the apples. I made as directed but used 4 small apples and the entire bag of cranberries and forgot to add the dab of butter before applying the top crust. Overall, this was a nice change from Grandma Opals apple pie from this site which is killer.

This ranks up there with the best! I did not add water but put in about a 1/2 cup white wine and used dried parsley. Excellent!

Asparagus Mushroom Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2009
This was very good! I wanted to try something different with fresh aspargus and this fit the bill. I did not have pimentos and used limes instead of the lemons. Delish!

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Easy and delicious. DH thought is was a little too spicy but I enjoyed it. I used boneless skinless thighs since that is what I had on hand. Lightly browned in the pan and finished it off in the oven made it moist and tender. Would make again. Thanks for a healthy alternative for thighs.

This was good but my fish did not crisp the way that I expected it to do. I used rack method. Added some old bay as seasoning. Used milk and egg mixture and fresh breadcrumbs. Would make again.

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
First time I have made filled oatmeal bars and very glad I did. Only changes that I made were: Used whole wheat flour. Added some cranberries with a tad of vanilla that I pureed along with the raspberry jam. I did double the recipe and used a 9x13 pan. Came out beautifully from the pan. Delish and will make again.

Greek Garbanzo Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Outstanding! Used kalamata olives and balsamic vinegar and olive oil for the dressing. Added some oregano and maybe a 1/4 tsp of the garlic salt and increased the pepper cause that is the way I like it. Healthy and delish. Bravo!

Fried Chicken with Creamy Gravy

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
We don't eat fried chicken very often but when we do it better be good. I followed the recipe except for brining the chicken for about 4 hrs prior. This makes all the difference in a moist or dry chicken. The seasonings were pretty much right on. I browned the chicken then I finished it off in the oven for about 1/2 hr at 350. The gravy could have been better. I will tweak that next time.

Festive Beef Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2008
The flavors blended well together. I did add about a tsp of dijon mustard to the mayo mixture. The beef was done to perfection and crackers added a nice crunch. I would season the beef with more pepper next time prior to the first broil.

Mushroom Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2008
This was very tasty. The only changes that I made were I used arrow root instead of the corn starch and I did not cook the chicken as long as stated. By not cooking as long the chicken was extremely moist. Very flavorful and a nice change from the regular chicken and mushrooms.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
Definitely worth 5 stars. I have been using Ina Gartens pie crust recipe which makes the best crust I have ever tasted. I too have added cinnamon and nutmeg to the apples from our tree. I am not sure what kind of apples they are because the tree is soooo old but they are not real tart. The combination of the sauce and Ina's crust make a winner.

Tuna Noodle Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2008
I searched for a recipe that had more vegetable content and lucky that I came across this one. Doubled the recipe,used a 9x13 pan,did not add the pimentos,less mayo than called for and used yolk free egg noodles. This was exceptional for tuna noodle casserole. Will definately make again.

What a wonderful change from "heavy chops". These have the right amount of zing and are clean to the palate. Tender and made with ease. Thanks for the post!

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
I have made these several times and each time these are devoured. Only change I made was to add a little bbq sauce and a tad of liquid smoke. Excellent!

Apple Banana Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2008
Worthy of 4.5 stars. Neither of the fruits outshined the other. A delicate combination. I doubled the recipe. Did not add all the sugar. Used low fat vanilla yogurt as suggested by another reviewer and used canola oil instead of the shortening. Thanks for the post

Mushroom Orzo

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2008
This was the first time that I made orzo. I had some mushrooms that I needed to use up so the search is over. I will definately make again. I did double the recipe and added some beef stock instead of the H20. Didn't have any parsley and that was not missed. The added touch of the walnuts gave it great texture. Makes a great side dish or a meal in itself. Thanks for a great way to use orzo.
