Lite Quick Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2006
A very tasty quick-and-easy recipe. I spooned this into crepes (from Crepe recipe submitted by Erin Nesbit), rolled and chilled them, and then served garnished with a sprinkle of confectioner's sugar. Everyone loved them! Very simple and tasty for a last-minute dessert.

Lemon Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2006
REDUCED FAT VERSION: Great recipe! I used half the amount of oil and replaced it with applesauce. You'd never taste the difference--plus, it increased the bread's moisture. Easy to make and just the perfect hint of lemon. Delicious!

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
WOW!!! Very moist, flavorful chicken. I like how it doesn't need to marinate long for it to work it's magic on the chicken. I increased the pepper for a little more kick. I'll definitely make this a regular!!

Barbecued Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
EASY!! This recipe makes any amateur cook look like a gourmet chef. I didn't measure anything...just through things in, and it still turned out great. It's a regular on my menu.

Rhubarb Crunch

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
Deliciously addictive! I DOULBED THE AMOUNT OF RHUBARB, however, which seems to be a better ratio of smooth and crunchy textures. This is our family's favorite way to use the abundant rhubarb from our garden...plus it's a fast and easy dessert with little preparation. YUMMY!!!!

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
EXTREMELY EASY AND FAST. I love recipes that don't require precise measuring, complicated steps, etc. This is the dessert equivalant of a "crock-pot" recipe...throw it all in and bake!

Pot Roast Caribe

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
I was in a "roast rut" and couldn't bring myself to making yet another roast. However, when I stumbled upon this recipe this morning, I was thrilled to see a recipe that included some different, almost "exotic" spices/flavors. I loved it and it turned out well even though I messed up the cooking method (mixed the flour, chopped onion, and all spices in with the tomato sauce which resulted in a paste..oops). It all cooked down nicely, however, and everyone enjoyed it. I really liked the new flavors and will make it again. My husband, who is a "no frills, try nothing new" guy liked it, but wasn't as thrilled about it as I was. I think you have to be a little daring to really LOVE this recipe...but nevertheless everyone still enjoyed it and had seconds.

Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
Directions were very methodical..nicely done. I'm not one to read all directions first (I immediately start doing what it says sentence by sentence), so I'm glad the instructions were laid out in that manner. I never felt "rushed" to hurry and get the next step done (ie, to hurry and make the milk mixture while the yeast was curing). Each step had plenty of time to complete before it was necessary to move to the next step. If any of that makes sense... I just really liked the way the instructions on this recipe methodically pulled together an incredibly ooey-gooey, delicious cinnamon roll. HOWEVER, NEXT TIME IT'S CRITICAL TO DOUBLE THE RECIPE. This didn't make enough to let everyone indulge. :)

Thai Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
SUBSTITUTIONS: I used canned/pickled jalapenos instead of fresh peppers and minced garlic from a jar, so I skipped the sautee step and just added everything at once (minus the oil). Instead of chicken wings, I boiled/cooked chicken breasts, cut them up, and stirred the chicken pieces into the sauce after it had thickened. Even with all the changes, it turned out to be a VERY DELICIOUS, authentic Thai flavored dish, and we loved it! I also cut back on the sugar slightly, but my husband said he would have liked it a little more sweet. It wasn't as spicy as we were expecting with all the jalapenos that we added, but you could add hot chili sauce to kick up the heat. Next time we will add some fresh/frozen green beans to the dish. Served it over rice. VERY EASY AND FAST TO MAKE!!!

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
BEST RECIPE EVER. PERIOD. My husband has 3 chocolate chip cookies and milk every night (15+years), and he has tried every recipe under the moon. This one beats them all hands down. Our decade-long search for the perfect recipe is over, thankfully.

Grilled Vegetables in Balsamic Tomato Sauce with Couscous

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2010
I'm extremely liberal when it comes to following instructions, so usually recipes are more like 'inspiration' or 'starting points' for me. This was a great inspiration. I took veggies from my garden--long/slender eggplants, basque grilling peppers, summer squash, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes--and simply grilled them in a fry pan w/olive oil, sea salt and pepper. When tender, I added a tbsp or two of balsamic at the end and then poured atop the couscous. I reserved some veggies just to eat plain and they were delicious!!! I can see making half/half couscous and quinoa in the future to make it more healthy. Easy recipe to improvise/change to your liking. Great recipe for people like me that can't seem to follow strict instructions!!! Healthy, tasty, and beautiful on a large serving platter!
