Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
these are yummy. i used penzey's orange peel (which you rehydrate before using), didn't use the pecans and accidentally forgot 1/3 of the chocolate chips (don't ask). they still came out fantastic -- not sure all those chips are even necessary. great, easy recipe!

Veggie Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
i drained and rinsed the beans and just added a little water to make up for it (about a quarter cup). also subbed celery for mushrooms.

Capers and Halibut

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2010
i used halibut chunks and half the butter. my husband liked this even though he isn't a caper fan. i also left out the pepper (by mistake) and salt (on purpose). still good though. i could see lemon pepper working here.

Salmon with Pineapple Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
the salsa was yummy, although my husband wasn't into the pineapple (the lime juice seemed to neutralize it a little too much for him). i actually think the salmon cooking time was a bit too long. otherwise, great recipe! the only change i made was using tomatoes on the vine instead of plum tomatoes.

Avocado Stuffed Yams

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
this rating is for my modified version, NOT the original recipe! i based what i did on the other reviews: microwaved the yams and omitted the cheese, oil (to make it less fatty) and cilantro (didn't have any). it came out very good and the flavors worked together, but i could see the cheese adding another dimension -- will try that next time! don't think i missed anything by not using oil or cilantro, though.

Baked Ziti II

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2010
a good basic recipe. add spices if your sauce is plain-ish. i cut back on the mozzarella by 1/4 and could probably have cut back on the ricotta too. i used fat-free ricotta and it was great. next time i'll add garlic powder. ETA: i made this tonight with 15 oz fat-free ricotta instead of 24, and it was still fine. slightly less creamy but i don't think anyone would notice.

Lemon Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
i used half the butter and didn't melt it ahead of time ... used it to butter the asparagus after it was drained. this was the first time i cooked asparagus and it was a winner!

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
i used slightly less sugar and used half and half instead of evaporated milk. this came out really well! next time i might cut back a bit on the butter. this frosts more than a dozen cupcakes.

Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
wasn't too excited with this. the cookies didn't hold together well. the only thing i changed from the recipe was that i didn't use raisins ... used choc chips instead.

Spinach Lasagna II

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
made this with jarred sauce, 9 noodles and added penzey's pasta sprinkle on each layer. added a little extra parmesan on top. this was my first lasagna and it worked great! also, used fat-free ricotta. the taste did not suffer.

Yam Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
a great combo of sweet and spicy. i used 4 cups of chicken broth and 1.5 lbs of yams. the only reason this wasn't a 5 is because i'm not the biggest fan of spice, but that's not the recipe's fault ... if you really like curry, you'll love this. i peeled the yams before dicing.

Country Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
made a half batch (12 regular-sized muffins) and left out the raisins/walnuts. these were very easy and came out tasting pretty well. i would maybe use a little less cloves and a little more cinnamon, but that's just my preference. swapped out the oil for unsweetened applesauce and used a little less sugar than it called for.

Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2009
we loved this. i used ground turkey and i cut the brown sugar by a quarter. also, i didn't have an onion so i used a little extra onion powder, and i ran out of a BBQ sauce so ended up using about 3/4 as much as listed. i also added a small splash of liquid smoke. will definitely make this again.

Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
made this as directed but used 2 tsp orange zest. it was orangey enough but not very sweet. sprinkled a few with an OJ/powdered sugar mix to see if it would sweeten it, but we decided we liked the original better. still yummy but just know they won't be very sweet.

Pan Seared Lemon Tilapia with Parmesan Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2009
we liked the pasta a lot but the tilapia wasn't great. however, i did omit the cilantro (didn't have any) and these fillets tasted particularly fishy, so it may not be the recipe's fault.

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009

Easy Bake Fish

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
this was easy and fast. i used salmon fillets and accidentally used as much lemon juice as honey/mustard (don't ask) and it came out great anyway!

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
this was good but there was way too much sauce. i used light mayo and used as much mayo as mustard. even then i could have reduced the sauce by half. someone suggested leaving the sauce on the side and this is a good idea ... you can control how much you use.

Iced Tea II

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
i cut the sugar to 1/2 cup and added it while boiling the water. i also used regular-flavored tea bags (although i'm sure orange pekoe would be divine). very good!
