Candy-Coated Milk Chocolate Pieces Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2007
I made these for my niece's b-day party. I made a double batch using 1 1/2 cups of shortening and 1/2 cup butter for flavor. It made a LOT of cookies using my Pampered Chef small cookie scoop. I thought they were very good (as did the little ones!). In general I prefer my cookies a little more buttery, so next time I make a single batch I may use half shortening, half butter. I will definitely make again around the holidays with the festive M&M's.

Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
I used Firefigherswife's tip and cut the sugar down to half cup total - 1/4 cup white sugar & 1/4 cup brown sugar. Also added a teaspoon of cinnamon. I made mine the day before Easter, and cooked it Easter afternoon. It did not really rise like a souffle, but the texture was very light like one. I actually just thought that this was OK - but everyone else at Easter dinner were crazy for it, so I will definitely make it again.

Moroccan Salmon Cakes with Garlic Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2007
I am on the fence about these. I followed the recipe with the exception of cooking the couscous in OJ (did not have any), and I baked instead of fried to cut back on fat. I thought they were just ok. I liked the texture with the couscous. I think what I did not like was maybe the cumin. I like cumin in Mexican dishes, but I thought it was a strange combo with the salmon. Maybe next time I would try curry powder instead? I am not sure. My husband really liked them though, so I will definitely try again with some adjusmtents. I got 8 baseball-sized cakes out of the mixture.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2007
I thought these were terrific - will be adding to my X-Mas cookie trays. I followed the recipe with the exception of adding about a half a bag of semi-sweet chips at the end. I then melted the rest of the chips and drizzled over the top. Very decadent! Tasted more like candy than anything else. I think next time I might add some chopped almonds to the mix with the semi-sweet chips, then add a whole almond on top of the drizzled chocolate - sort of like an almond joy. I think that would be nice for the holidays. Oh - and I made mine slightly larger than walnut-sized and I got about 3-1/2 dozen.

Hummus Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2007
I really enjoyed this recipe, my husband thought it a bit bland. Next time I would use more hummus (I don't think I used the full cup, so I think it needed more hummus flavor). Plus I would add more veggies per my husband's suggestion (again, I did not use full amounts - just place veggies around to look nice). I probably only used about a cup of mozzarella as well, but I don't think it needed any more than that.

Chococonut Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
These were good, but not fantastic. I am not a great baker, so it could definitely be me. But these just tasted mostly like regular chocolate chip cookies to me. Only a slight coconut flavor. I added about a half cup of diced walnuts as well (made the dough a week ahead of time).

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
These were wonderful! I made the dough a week ahead of time and left in the refridgerator. I did spray the mini-muffin pans because I did not want to risk them sticking. I want to explore other recipes using the same idea - chocolate with mint kisses or rolos, etc. Oh - and I added x-mas sprinkles and they look adorable - like little tarts.

Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
I make these bars every Christmas - but instead of milk chocolate and pecans (which is good too!) I used white chocolate chips - let them melt and spread. And then I sprinkle with dried cranberries and diced walnuts for a festive look.

Eggnog Quick Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
I followed the advice of others and used 1 1/3 c. eggnog, 2 c. flour and I used a whole teaspoon of nutmeg. It turned out really nice. Very mild tasting - not an overwhelming eggnog flavor. But I did enjoy it. I will be making this and pumpkin bread to give away as christmas gifts.

Caramelized Brussels Sprouts with Pistachios

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
These were a hit at Thanksgiving dinner (well, as much of a hit as Brussel Sprouts can be!). I followed the recipe with the exception on halving the sprouts. The only draw back was that it was not the prettiest dish on the table. (I think next time I might use frozen sprouts - it was sort of a pain to peel off the outer layers to clean)

Pumpkin Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
These were pretty good. I slightly altered the recipe so I could use a whole can of pumpkin (15 oz = 1.75 cups if I remember correctly). I used half shortening and half butter, which worked out pretty well. I am not crazy about cake-like cookies, so I was hoping the butter would make them a little more chewy, and maybe they were a little more chewy than if I used all shortening, but they were still pretty cake-like. Overall I liked them. Tasted like pumpkin bread with butterscotch chips!

Penne Primavera

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2006
I made this last night and really liked it - I used one pound of ziti, so I increased the broth to 4 cups (or 2 cans). I was a little nervous that it was too much pasta with not enough liquid, but it all worked out. I used frozen broccoli that I cooked in the microwave while I sauteed the garlic and carrots. I think next time to skip a step I might just cook it all in one pot - saute the garlic & carrots and then add the broth and bring to a boil. Then add the pasta, peas and broccoli. Just a thought - also, was a bit bland without the cheese, so you do not want to skimp on the parm!

Quick and Easy Spinach Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2006
I really enjoyed this recipe. I served it as a side dish along with a big salad. Was very good - I think next time I will add a little more garlic, but otherwise I would not change a thing. It would be terrific with some marinara for dipping as well. I can see myself making this quite a bit with a pot of soup in the cooler months.

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2006
I really enjoyed this quiche. Made it crustless because I am not crazy about crusts. Also omitted the feta because my husband does not like it (I could eat it feta right from the package) and mushrooms because I forgot to get them. But all in all, was very good. Had a nice light texture that I really enjoyed.

Toasted Coconut, Pecan, and Caramel Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2006
I made this with a few modifications: I made one pie using a reduced fat graham cracker crust, 8 oz. light cream cheese, a container of light Cool Whip and 1/3 cup of sugar for the base. My husband and I really enjoyed it. I prefered it the second and third days when it had a chance to firm up. I think in the future I may try with different fruits - or even just omitting the coconut and adding sliced banana could be good.

BLT Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2006
Not crazy about this one, but it may be because of my own substitutions. I used fat free Ranch dressing and fake bacon (we are not meat eaters). Regardless, I will not be making this one again as there are many other pasta salad recipes that I prefer.

Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: May 22, 2006
So good and so easy! I used 5 small zucchini - sauteed in olive oil for about 10 minutes with some crushed red pepper flakes. Stirred in about a cup of marinara saud then stuffed into soft sub rolls. Topped with shredded mozzarella, wrapped in foil then baked for about 15 minutes at 375. It was so yummy! Husband loved them as well!
