Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2006
this was really good and so easy! i made it without lemon slices ... just added a little lemon juice to the tilapia before baking. my husband liked it a lot too. will be making it again.

Vanilla Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
this recipe is extremely simple. however, it does need some tweaking. after following the directions exactly and reading the reviews after, i would say definitely wrap the crust in foil (mine burned and i only had it in for 28 minutes of the specified 40 at the end), do up the amount of vanilla, and do use more spice. not a bad recipe, just not as flavorful as you might expect from pumpkin pie.

Hazelnut-Crusted Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
I wasn't as into this as my husband was, but I'm not a huge salmon fan to begin with. I followed the original recipe except: 2 tsp fresh tarragon was replaced with 2 tsp dried tarragon; orange zest was replaced with rehydrated orange peel from penzey's; and i forgot the salt/pepper. added the salt after it came out -- no need for pepper! it looked very pretty. next time i'll try almonds. might enjoy that better.

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.

Onion Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2007
note: this review reflects using a lot of the suggestions, not the basic recipe. i did this in the oven as suggested, and i also added olive oil and lemon juice. it came out pretty well! needed some salt though, and i'm guessing it would need it even when making the recipe exactly as the original.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
these came out very cake-like. i did 3 things differently: used applesauce instead of oil, didn't dissolve the baking soda in milk (just added both separately) and used 1.5 cups chocolate chips instead of 2 cups. i think 2 cups would have been too many.

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!

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!

Tamra's Microwave Tilapia

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
this was a bit bland. the only thing i did differently was to use dried tarragon instead of fresh. we sprinkled penzey's 4S seasoned salt on it and that helped. it was definitely fast, and if you're OK with adding spices after tasting it, this is a good, quick dish.

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.

Best Salmon Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
i found this to be a bit bland, but i'm not much of a salmon person. my husband does like salmon, and he said this is a great recipe. i scaled it to 2 servings and it said a pound of salmon -- this is probably more like 3 servings. next time i might sprinkle some onion powder with the salt and pepper. i put some lemon juice on it before baking.

Croutons

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010

Tortellini Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
giving this a 3 not for taste but because the recipe is wrong. the taste was actually just fine. but this says it makes 4 servings (no way ... MAYBE 6 but probably more like 8) and while it has garlic and parmesan in the ingredients, they are not in the directions. i used low-sodium broth and garlic powder instead of the minced (since i didn't know when to put it in). i served the parmesan on top at the end. it was yummy but the recipe itself needs clarification.

Chicken and Vegetable Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
good recipe but needs more flavor. i added soy sauce to the rice at the end and mixed it in with the chicken/veggies. that helped. also, i made mine in a wok.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
this review is for just the pancakes (i didn't make the syrup): they were pretty good but next time i may add more pumpkin. the taste was subtle. i also sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top as they were cooking. and i didn't separate the eggs, just added them together.

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.

Picante Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
made this in the crockpot with salsa instead of picante (they're pretty much the same thing). it was a bit dry, but that could be from the crock pot. would be great shredded in burritos.

Tuna Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2011
this recipe says it's 6 servings. only if it's being served as a side dish ... i'd say this is 3 servings, tops. the only thing i did differently was adding red onion. i used lite italian dressing.

Veggie Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
i made some changes -- omitted the mushrooms, forgot to spray the tortilla tops before baking, used whole wheat tortillas. i also didn't get salsa/sour cream for dipping, although that would have been great. i liked these but next time will probably not use whole wheat tortillas.

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2011
i just eyeballed the measurements (and probably added double the honey) but it came out great!
