Summer Nights Eggplants

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
The original recipe calls for way too much breadcrumbs. I only used about 1/3 the amount called for. I also added ground beef, which I browned while sauteing the onion and garlic. Other than that I followed the recipe as is. Pretty good, with some tweaking :)

Pepperoni Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2009
Based on some of the other reviewers' suggestions, I made the following changes: I smeared a little cream cheese on the bottom of the zucchini boats, then put the sliced pepperoni in, then the skillet mix. In the skillet mix, I used green onion instead of white, and I added some feta cheese. Overall it's pretty good but might need just a tad bit of something else to give more flavor. Thanks for a great base recipe!

Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
I followed the recipe exactly as stated, except I used dried parsley instead of fresh b/c that's what I had on hand. It came out delicious! Even my husband, who usually doesn't like meatless meals, had 3 servings. Thanks for a yummy vegetarian dish! :)

Chicken Piccata II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2009
This was delicious! I followed the advice of another reviewer and put the chicken in a warm oven while I made the sauce in the pan . . . I added the chicken back to the pan just for a couple minutes before serving, so it doesn't get soggy.

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
I have never made a ham before and this came out perfect! My hubby said it was the best ham he's ever eaten! :) I followed "Mazzo"'s review and used 1/3 C butter, 1/2 C brown sugar and 1/4 C honey for the glaze. I also put some sliced carrots in the baking pan with the ham so they got some of that honey-sugary flavor too. I don't even really like carrots but I ate them all. YUM!!!! Thanks, Colleen, for an awesome ham recipe I will be sure to use again and again!

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2009
Easy, quick and yummy! I also used Philadelphia's Garlic and Herb spread, it has a very good flavor. Some of the filling oozed out during baking, so I just scooped up the stuff that came out and poured it back on top of the chicken like a sauce right before serving. Everyone raved! Thanks, Wendy!

Happy Shrimp

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
This recipe was quick, easy and tasty! I added some mushrooms because I love them (used about 250 g for 3 servings), and I doubled the tomato. I served the recipe over angel hair pasta. It looked and tasted like it came from a restaurant! This recipe made me and my husband very happy, thanks "proudwife"! :)

Chicken with Mushrooms, Prosciutto, and Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
Very tasty! I only made a few minor changes: I added one onion (sliced), doubled the amount of mushrooms, and laid both on the bottom of the pan before putting chicken on top to bake. I also used garlic powder b/c I didn't have any fresh garlic on hand, and the flavor came through just fine. I also pPut a little bit of flour in the sauce to thicken a little bit. Also, if you use chicken breasts, don't forget to cut your bake time to 20-30 minutes. Thanks again for a yummy and quick recipe!

Angel Hair Pasta with Shrimp and Basil

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
I followed the advice of some of the other reviewers and I doubled the pasta, garlic and shrimp. I also did not add the shrimp during step 2, I added it to the simmering sauce in step 3. Overall this recipe was quick, easy and tasty! Thanks PAL :)

Zucchini Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
Very good recipe, and flexible. I added a little more garlic, some mushrooms and chopped roma tomatoes. I sauteed the zucchini instead of boiling it (one less pot to clean), and added all the other veggies to the skillet to sautee all together too. I'll definitely make again!

Fantastic Lemon Butter Fillet

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
I thought this was a good recipe, but I might not call it "fantastic". I didn't use the lemon pepper seasoning (lemon pepper is too overpowering for my taste). Instead, as suggested by another reviewer, I grated the lemon zest and mixed it with a 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs (I was making 4 servings). I covered the fish with the lemon butter + bread crumb mix, and sprinkled some grated parmesan cheese on top. It came out nice and the flavors were good but not too overpowering. Next time though I think I will double the sauce (since I added the breadcrumbs the dish came out a little dry).

Lemon and Cilantro Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2009
The original recipe would only get three stars; I gave it four with the following changes (based on other reviewers comments): I used just ONE lemon for the zest and juice, and only ONE small handful of cilantro. The taste of cilantro is very strong and the amount called for in the original recipe is WAY too much. I also added 2 garlic cloves (minced), and 6-8 Roma tomatoes, chopped. I find this is nice over green salad, as recommended, or with "bowtie" pasta.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2008
I tried this recipe a few times, using only the original recipe, then some modifications, then playing around with various cuts of beef and different cooking temps, etc. For some reason I cannot get this to come out as amazing as the other reviewers suggest. The flavor is OK I guess, but definitely not the best stew I've had and way too much prep work for a slow cooker recipe. Sorry.

Bev's Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly but I thought the sauce had a strange flavor to it. Hubby ate it but I couldn't finish my portion. Will not make this again, sorry.

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
This recipe was SOOO quick but tasted SOOO good! I used frozen shrimp (thawed and drained first), *slightly* less Dijon, a little more garlic (1 clove for each serving), and a splash (1/3 to 1/2 cup) white wine. Keep an eye on the cook time though, my shrimp were done around 8 - 10 minutes. This recipe is definitely a keeper for busy weeknights, or even for company! Thanks, Kimber!

Creamy Spinach Tortellini

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
Yum! This recipe was easy and tasted GREAT! Even my husband who is not really a fan of vegetarian meals had seconds! There are no quantities listed for the tomatoes and mushrooms but I used 1 lb of each (with 1 lb of pasta) and I think those was the perfect amounts. I also used spinach tortellini and the spinach pasta plus the spinach in the sauce was YUMMY (and not too overpowering). Thanks so much Jen for a quick, easy and TASTY recipe!

Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
This was a good recipe, very yummy. Based on other reviews, I made the following changes: I cut the amount of chicken by 1/3, and used about double the amount of broccoli. I also think penne or bowtie pasta would make the dish a little easier to scoop and serve. But overall, a good dish, tasty and quick . . perfect for a busy weeknight meal!

White Bean and Artichoke Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
This is a good salad, you can play around with the quantities to suit your tastes. I halved the beans and quadrupled the artichokes. So I guess my salad should be called "Artichoke and White Bean" instead of the other way around. :) I also added about 1/2 of a cucumber and some feta cheese. Thanks, Sara!

Traditional Osso Buco

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly as written but didn't get a great outcome. My veal seemed a little overcooked while the carrots seemed a little undercooked. Next time I will try to cut the shank into thicker pieces and the carrot into thinner pieces perhaps? Good flavor though, will try this again.
