Tuna Piccata Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2014
This is a good recipe, but it didn't go over too well with my kids. Either they didn't like the dijon in it, or maybe the taste of my extra virgin olive oil was overpowering. I was also a little bit put off, but I would still make this again.

Peach Tea

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2013
This was worth making. I subbed honey (about 1/4 cup) for the stevia and I used less water because I like my tea strong. I used fresh peaches that were tasty, but not very juicy. I imagine it would be even better if you had a really great batch of peaches, but I like this enough that I may make another batch soon before my peaches get even mushier.

Soy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2013
I would have given this 4 or 5 stars, except the amount of salt was way too much! I should have known not to put so much salt for such a small batch of pancakes, but I just followed the recipe and figured they would be a bit salty. They were barely edible. I was planning to eat them with just butter, but I had to put jam on them, so it was not such a low-carb breakfast for me afterall. Otherwise, the recipe was good, and I will probably make these again, using 1/4 tsp salt or less.

Crispy Pork Cutlets

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
Delicious! I really didn't want to take a chance by adding pickles, so I left those and the jalapenos out. They might work, but I wasn't brave enough to try it, and we loved the gravy with just the green onions. I served it with mashed potatoes and roasted zucchini. I ended up needing more like 2 cups of bread crumbs. Next time, I would use less and add as needed, so the extra crumbs aren't wasted.

Won Ton Wrapper Appetizers

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2013
I love the won ton wrappers baked in cups! To me it is so much easier than trying to fold and seal them. I filled these with chopped cabbage, carrots, & onion, sauteing in sesame oil, seasoned with ginger, garlic, soy sauce, & pepper. I added cooked chicken sausages (garlic flavor, chopped in the food processor). Then I added an egg white after removing from heat. I filled the pre-baked won tons and baked for about 10 min. I made a meal out of these by serving them with rice and additional soy sauce. Even my pickiest boy really liked these!

Mascarpone Strawberry Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2013
These cupcakes were disappointing. I made the cupcake part exactly as the recipe stated. They were fairly moist, but I thought they would be even more moist. They tasted like a normal cupcake to me. I don't know if I over-mixed or what. I prefer the ricotta cake recipe on this site, which also uses a box mix.

Parmesan Chicken II

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
I make a different parmesan chicken recipe often, but I like that this uses drumsticks instead of chicken breast, and it is easier than my other recipe. The whole family loved this, especially my little boys! My drumsticks took longer than 45 minutes.

Buttermilk Corn Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
This recipe makes my mouth water! My family & I love it! I make it often in muffin cups, and have also made it in a 9 in. round with success. I leave out the white sugar and I use organic blue cornmeal. I love that it uses oil. I find that easier than butter. It is moist and crumbly. This is exactly the quick and delicious cornbread recipe I have been looking for.

Plain Cake Doughnuts

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
I think I made these the laziest way possible. I made a half a batch. I went ahead and used a whole egg, but scaled back the other ingredients. Then I simply spooned small amounts of the batter into the hot oil. Super easy and exactly the kind of indulgent snack I was looking for. Also, I used buttermilk. I will be making these again when the evil cravings haunt me.

Pan-Seared Tilapia

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
This was great! Very basic, nothing fancy, but sometimes that is what you are looking for! I used Swai fillets for this.

Okra Rice

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
All three of my boys like okra, so I knew this recipe had a good chance of success. I served this as the main dish, with (pinto) beans for a side. Sure enough, it went over very well, even though I used only about a fourth of the bacon. One reviewer said his didn't turn out slimy, but mine did. I may try Aggeliki's tips next time for less slimy texture.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
This is easier than standing in line and buying a rotisserie chicken! Just as yummy, too. I love that it takes only 3-4 hours on high and I can start it in the afternoon rather than in the busy morning. My family of 5 ate this entire 4+ lb chicken tonight. Everybody liked it. As other reviewers said, it may not take as long as the recipe stated. My larger bird was falling off the bone after only about three hours on high. I cooked mine in a large rectangular crockpot. The breast was definitely tender enough, but next time I think I will cook it with the breast side down. I did not add any extra liquid to mine, and I did use less oil (2 tsp sesame, 2 tsp olive oil). I also left out the worchester sauce since I am trying to serve more "real" foods. I used organic soy sauce.

Mahi Mahi Rockefeller

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
It's pretty hard to go wrong with that much bacon and cheese. This was a really good recipe, and my whole family of five liked it. I used fresh spinach like some other reviewers. I melted the butter and started the spinach first in the skillet. When it had wilted a bit I added the onions, garlic, etc. Also I didn't have evaporated milk so I used regular milk. It was not a problem. I used both mahi mahi and tilapia. The mahi mahi tasted the best in this dish.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
We really really wanted to like these. Really. I liked them the most of the five of us, but they were nothing to write home about. I tried making them without the cumin to see if that was what my family didn't like, but they still didn't go over very well.

Slow Cooker Escalloped Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2010
I made this when my Mother-in-law was staying with us, and it was a big hit with the whole crew. The suggested 1 1/2 cups of liquid worked great for me. I was very scared to try this recipe, but I am so glad I did.

Ricotta Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2010
I have always thought cake & ricotta should get married, so I was all over this recipe when I saw it. SO good! Definitely better the next day. I halved the recipe for the ricotta mixture, used a white cake mix (using 2 whole eggs & one egg white), and added at least a teaspoon of almond flavoring instead of the vanilla. Delicious with fresh strawberries! I will do the same next time, or try it with chocolate cake mix & use vanilla.

Chicken Oreganato

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2010
This was good! Next time I will make sure I put plenty of salt and about 1/4 cup of lemon juice. Maybe garlic powder too as others suggested. But it went over well with my whole family. I put plenty of oregano on them this tim; it's a great flavor with the lemon.

I actually wasn't a big fan of the minced gralic in this, but otherwise it was very good.

Golden Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
These are great. I didn't make them exactly like the recipe stated since I was out of Italitan seasoning. I just used dried basil and oregano. I also only dipped one side of the chicken pieces in butter, and put the buttery side facing up. I sprayed my pan with canola spray. It worked well. They were a big hit.

Chocolate Banana Cream Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
I was drawn to this recipe because it had real chocolate and real cream in it, not chocolate pudding. I actually didn't like it all that much, but I still gave it 4 stars because it is a good recipe. I think I just don't care for banana cream pie. :) My friend & husband liked it a lot. I used a graham crust and that worked well.
