Saucy Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2005
LOW CARB VARIATIONS: I cut the flour down to a bare minimum and substituted wheat germ for the bread crumbs... it gives the crunch without the carbs. (I also added some dried parsley in the wheat germ for flavor/color.) I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of milk which made a big difference in the flavor without the added carbs. I had no swiss cheese, so I used provolone, which was perfect. A radical departure in the sauce to reduce carbs still yielded excellent results: I completely omitted the cream of mushroom soup, but rather sauteed the mushrooms in butter and then wine and poured over the chicken to bake. Delicious!

Cheesy Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2006
YUM! I omitted the sugar (as others have) and the recipe doesn't miss it a bit.

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2006
Excellent and easy! What more can a person want? I will add a touch more salt next time, just personal taste. I served this bread with homemade beef barley soup- a great meal for a cozy fall evening.

Southern Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
This was my first time ever making fried chicken (no kidding! A 39 year old married 13 years!) and it turned out terrific. Simple ingredients made for gentle flavors that shined through. Paired with a simple salad of butter lettuce and grape tomatoes and smashed Yukon gold potatoes sprinkled with sea salt and butter and viola! a fabulously homey indulgence...

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2006
Ready for a wow-factor twist on this? I used previous suggestions to make this more of a bar-cookie consistency and added a bag of semi-sweet chocolate morsels at the last minute before popping into the oven. Simply awesome. I can see white chocolate chips, butterscotch, etc... let the sky be the limit. OH, AND, I cut sugar down to 3/4 cup and oil down to 2/3 cup and we didn't miss it a bit... why add calories/fat when you don't really need it? ENJOY THIS EASY AND YUMMY FALL RECIPE!

Balsamic Vinegar and Olive Oil Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
I reduced the oil by half and even beefed up the balsamic- I think this is a good one to play with to find that magic mojo. Also added a crushed garlic clove and some fresh rosemary. A good all-around dressing for the Mediterranean Diet- I'm sure I'll be tweaking it some to suit different salads and moods in the future.

Pepperoni Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
I made these for our Christmas Eve celebration and they were a hit. I used the gigantic stuffing mushrooms from Costco, which made for a showy platter. Instead of butter crackers I used French's Fried Onions (Cheddar flavored) and whirled them up to crumbs in my mini processor... I believed this really added that special somethin' somethin' to what was an already fantastic appetizer. Bravo, Koalagirl, for providing an excellent appetizer recipe!

Sausage Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
In response to the previous poster who asked how the sausage should be prepared: my recommendation is to remove the casing- especially if you're serving it to kids. If you don't remove the casing, it could roll back while cooking the sausage pieces and you'll get the inevitable question from your kids, "What's this?" then "What's it made out of?" then "Ewww!" Best bet: use frozen sausages, thaw very lightly in the microwave, then use a sharp knife to cut membrane and remove.

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
Too much oil! I (foolishly) didn't read the reviews because it had near perfect ratings. My daughter was the one who scrolled down and asked if I had read the reviews about the oil- right after I dumped the oil in the batter! The cake really tasted oily and it would've been just great with HALF the oil.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
Excellent- I used half the batch for dinner rolls (about six balls of dough- enough for dinner) and rolled out the rest for cinnamon rolls- enough for dessert.

Sour Cream Frosting

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
This wasn't half-bad. I used it over cinnamon rolls because I didn't have cream cheese for the frosting. It worked and the rolls are gone- job done!

Sea Bass Cuban Style

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
Fantastic! Because they were available, and it was convenient, I added pencil thin asparagus spears to the pan when I added the fish- it was superb!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
Excellent- the structure of the cookie was soft and moist- really ideal. I added a few handfulls of raisins, 1 tsp allspice and 1/2 tsp nutmeg. I also like big cookies, so I used 1/4 cup as my scoop and baked 15 minutes.

Slow Smoked Pork Spareribs

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
Excellent- This came out well without all the time vested into it- I'm sure it would be amazing with the smoker. But, I don't have a smoker so I dry-rubbed the meat (which was, incidentally, mostly frozen) and then grilled it, basting the meat with the sauce. It came out fantastic and our guests loved it.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
This was ok... I thought the chops "boiled" in the sauce and didn't have an appealing look to them. About the only thing that saved it was that I made a quick reduction of 2 tblsp. butter, 2 tsp. brandy and 1 tblsp orange juice concentrate. I poured it over the chops and it saved the dish.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
Excellent! This recipe made six mini-loafs. I'm going to give a few away and freeze a couple. I didn't change a thing and it was fantabulous.

Supreme Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
Great flavor- the recipe instructions made no sense though (how does one cook, THEN shred potatoes?) I used the ingredients and made this dish the traditional way- thinly slice raw potatoes, layer them with the wet ingredients and cheese then bake for 1.5 hours. Thinly sliced green onions makes a nice little topper.

London Broil I

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
I used previous suggestion and added Balsamic Vinegar (about 1/4 cup) and used Oyster Sauce instead of Soy Sauce- which makes the marinade thicker and allows it to really adhere to the meat surface. (Don't spend $4 on Oyster Sauce at the grocery store, you can get it at the Dollar Store). Truly delicious marinade-
