Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
I always get copliments on this recipe. The buttermilk makes for a tender, moist bread. I haven't fiddled using WW flour yet, but I may try that next. Also, FYI, It's good as a loaf or as muffins. I didn't have the time to make a loaf this morning, so I made muffins instead this morning. It took about 20 minutes (your oven may vary -- check after 15). I made about 16 muffins in all.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
Really good and easier than my previous recipe. These are light and just sweet enough -- not too sugary. I think next time I might try 1/2 ap & 1/2 ww flours. Also, I think buttermilk could be subbed for the vinegar & milk in a pinch with no negative outcome. Really good!

Beer and Soy Sauce Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Way way way too salty -- and I only marinated for about 4 hours. I did not add the additional salt listed in the recipe. It just made my chicken tast like, well, salt. I couldn't taste the garlic or beer. I will not use this recipe again. sorry.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: May 8, 2009
This is really good and easy. I halved the recipe and used a pre-cooked italian sausage (didn't realize it was pre-cooked when I bought it) and it turned out just fine. I still removed the casings and chopped the sausage up a bit. It was not watery or greasy. I added a bit of parmesan cheese to the sauce and it was great. Will be making this again.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This was really good! I made 12 good sized muffins and baked them for about 30 minutes. They are moist and not too dense. I followed other peoples advice regarding stirring the flour until just mixed. I also used my mixer until adding the bananas. I added a bit of vanilla, cinnamon and fresh nutmeg. Really delicious. I've eaten 2 already and they've only been out of the over for about 5 minutes.

Tomato Basil Fettuccine

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
It was a good base recipe and i'll keep it in the repetoire. I like things a little more seasoned, so yes, I doctored this a bit. I had a little bit of bulk sweet italian sausage (about a 1/4 lb -- not much at all). I browned this with about 1/2 a medium chopped onion (didn't need butter -- just spayed the pan with PAM). I also added a few cloves of garlic. I didnt' have fresh basil, so I added some dry. For those who thought it was watery -- you didn't let it cook long enough before adding the evaporated milk. I also added some parmesan cheese along with the milk so that thickened things up a bit too.

Rosie's Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
Great way to use up all the bok choy I bought. I've been eating this all week. I found that the recipe made more than enough dressing. I too also added extra almonds for crunch.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
Not horrible but my favorite by a long shot. For one, other than the ginger, it doesn't have a lot of seasoning. Also, the ketchup/brown sugar mix is just too sweet by itself. I prefer to mix in some dry mustard for a bit of tang. Also, as noted previously, putting the sugar and ketchup on the bottom has an ick factor for me. What happened was it turns into watery, fat laden goo at the bottom. Not that appetizing for me. I prefer it on the top and will keep doing that from now one. The loaf had a wierd texture that I can only attribute to the sauce on the bottom combined with it essentially boiled the meat. Leftovers were not that appetizing. I like to have leftover meatloaf sandwiches and this didn't fit the bill.

Best Zucchini Appetizer

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2007
I took note of what some of the other reviewers said and made the following changes. I think it came out really well and will definitely make it again. This could be served warm or cold too. I shredded the zucchini and thinly thinly sliced a small onion and sauteed it until it was caramelized. I also added some much needed seasoning -- things like pepper (why isn't it in the recipe?) and a good pinch of herbs de Provence. I think just about any herbs you like with zucchini or eggs would work. I also think how you mix the ingredients could make the difference in appearances. I mixed all the veggies and seasonings first. I then stirred in the baking mix making sure to evenly coat all ingredients. Then, the cheese was mixed in. In a separate bowl I whisked the eggs and oil together and then finally stirred it all in. I took a bit of extra grated cheese and put it on top before placing it all in the oven. I think you could take some extra liberties with the recipe such as mixing in some red pepper or putting thin tomatoes slices on top before baking the whole thing. I think it came out well and all it needed was the right mixing and seasoning.

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
I loved the dressing! I didn't have the chili sauce so used chili oil (with the chili peppers in it) and it turned out great. I also used Napa cabbage instead since that's what I had. I think it would be great with sliced red peppers, snow peas, water chestnuts, etc. The one thing I wasn't so keen on was the wontons. I didn't particularly like the way they came out baked in teh oven. While I appreciate the lower fat content, I would have prefered mine fried.

Very Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
I just got an ice cream maker 9cuisinar) and this was the 3rd recipe I've tried and, so far, the best. Straining the chocolate mixture while still hot might cut down on the little chocolate flecks (which do not detract from the flavor btw). I chilled the chocolate mixture over night and then strained it whicl also worked but required a little more effort since the mixture was rather thick. The flavor of the end product was excellent. I think it would be a great base for maybe a Rocky Road or some other mix ins.

Corn Pudding II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2006
First off, DO NOT make this in your Cuisinart. 3 1/2 cups of milk is just too much (as I found out) and it will make a huge mess. The "pudding" was just awful. I'm sorry, but I've had much better. The sugar concentrated in the bottom and the butter seperated turning the whole thing ended up a mess. I prefer a corn pudding that has more corn to it and is less of a sweet omelet with corn in it. I'll go back to my other recipe next time. I thought this one would be so easy, but I was dead wrong.
