Mashed Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
Absolutely delicious!! I'll be making these again and again. The only changes I made were to use half & half instead of milk, and 3/4 of the butter. A wonderful and easy fall treat!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
Tasty, but I think I'll stick to my original blueberry muffin recipe. Sour cream is great in baking, but it can neutralize other flavors, and in this case seems to take some of the tartness away from the blueberries. However, this recipe does make beautiful, wonderfully textured muffins, so it's definitely worth a try!

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2005
Great recipe. I added just a sprinkle of corn starch to help the glaze thicken a bit faster. Loved the ginger. Thanks for the recipe!

The Best Artichoke Chicken Buffet

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2005
This was not a favorite with us. The flavor was pretty good, but the texture was mushy and a little unappealing. I didn't add the carrots because I thought they would be a strange flavor to add to this kind of casserole, but I can't imagine that they would have made a huge difference in the turnout. Probably won't make this again. Thanks anyway, though!

Chicken Riggies II

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2005
Not memorable. This seemed a little boring to me. It needs something, but I'm just not sure what it is. I probably won't make this again. Sorry!

Eggplant Croquettes

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2005
Weird and delicious! These would make good appetizers for a party. We ate ours as burgers like another reviewer suggested here, and they were great that way. I had some jarred red peppers on hand from another recipe, and I chopped a bit up and threw them in the mix, and they complimented this recipe really well. Also added alot more spices, a few shakes of garlic salt, basil, and italian seasonings, and seasoned the patties with garlic pepper while I was frying. Versatile recipe, we'll make this again! Thanks!

Greek Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2005
YUMMY!!!! "Take 'em out to share with the neighbors" good. I've had cookies like this recipe that involve stuffing the cookies with pitted dates; looking for that recipe was what brought me to this one. I didn't wait for my cookies to cool completely before rolling them in the powdered sugar, no harm done. Those little cookies positively melt in your mouth when they're still hot from the oven.:)

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
I really enjoyed this recipe! I used jasmine rice seasoned with fresh cilantro and garlic salt as a base layer before I spooned the burrito filler into the tortilla. Delicious! Making rice to go along with this will also get you four burritos instead of two. To spice up the rest of the mixture, I added some cumin, and a bit of chili powder, and a hefty amount of garlic salt. Another great thing about this recipe, (esp if you add rice and end up with twice the burritos) is that you end up with individual frozen meals, by wrapping them up in plastic wrap and throwing them in the freezer. Later, an instant portable meal!:)

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2005
These cookies were beautiful, looked just like the picture....but there was a bitter aftertaste--is that the cream of tartar? I found it unpleasant enough to not want these cookies again. Also, bake at 350 for 10 minutes, if you want to avoid burning your first batch of cookies on the bottom.

Cinnamon and Lime Chicken Fajitas

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2005
Amazing!!!! So deliciously different. If I could give this one 10 stars, I would. I didn't change anything except an additional tablespoon of jalapenos, and a tablespoon or two of finely chopped cilantro to the skillet mixture. I LOVED the cinnamon, it blended perfectly in the recipe. Will make again and again, I'm sure!

Angel Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2005
This recipe has real potential! Boyfriend found the unchanged recipe sauce too thick, I found it too salty. I made the sauce as is, then poured 3/4ths of it over the chicken baking in the oven (which doesn't dry out if you only cook it for 30 minutes or so at 400 degrees). I thinned out the remaining sauce with half a soup can of water and about 1/4th cup milk, and tossed that with the pasta before adding the chicken. After trying fettucine pasta, I tried making this with bow-tie pasta; I think the sauce sticks to bow-tie better. It gets better as leftovers.:) Next time, in addition to adding roasted red peppers and maybe artichokes, I'll try the trick recommended by an earlier reviewer of cubing a raw potato into the sauce while it's simmering to soak up the salt. I guess you just spoon the potato out after it cooks in the sauce. What an intriguing idea! Thanks for the recipe, Marian!

Macadamia-Crusted Sea Bass with Mango Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2005
Delicious recipe! I didn't change anything except the type of fish I used. I used mahi mahi because certain kinds of sea bass have been terribly overfished due to irresponsible fishing methods. There are many excellent alternatives to sea bass (Chilean sea bass has been particularly overfished) that are more known for sustainable fishing practices. Mahi mahi and pacific halibut both have wonderful textures to complement this dish. Thanks for the recipe, I'll be making it again for sure!

Lemon Mushroom Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2005
We thought this dish was good, but it didn't really stand out as anything special for me. I agree about the flour as well, using half of the recommended flour mixture for dredging is MORE than enough. I may make this again, and play around with the sauce, maybe adding a bit of cream to make the sauce a bit more substantial.

Chicken Tortilla Soup I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2005
Very nice recipe. Good for making your own little tweaks here and there. A splash or two of lime juice added in with the broth is a tasty compliment.:)

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2005
This is good; we'll make this again. Just let your oven preheat to about 100 degrees for five minutes, then turn it off, and let the dough rise in there. After 20 minutes outside the oven and no rising, I went ahead and did that, and mine rose beautifully after that. It took 40 minutes total for me. Just make sure to keep an eye on it when it's baking in the oven; 15 minutes was a little too long in my case. I sprinkled a little bit of rosemary on the top of my bread too as well before baking it. Thanks for the recipe!

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2005
I had high hopes for this recipe, but I guess we just weren't that wild about it. The flavors seemed a little blah to me. I was unimpressed with the filling and I thought the cake portion could use alot more spice; I'm wondering if a 1/2t of nutmeg, and maybe a 1/4t of ground ginger might help somewhat. I also wish I'd read through more of the earlier reviews before making this recipe, particularly the recommendation not to roll the cake too tightly after adding the filling to avoid squeeze-out, and to refrigerate the filling! I'm going to have to account for my own human error though, and assume others will have better luck with it!:P
