Zucchini Tomato Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
2 thumbs up from hubby! :) made a few alterations tho. I did saute some ground beef first. I used real onions and since I didn't have any valveeta, I used 1 c cheddar and 1 c of swiss. Good use of those 1 1/2 foot zucchinis from my garden! (I only used one for the whole dish)

Summer Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
well, my VERY skeptical bf had 3 helpings and called it "comfort food". So I'd say it rated a 5 star LOL He was NOT looking forward to dinner when I told him what I was making....he changed his tune pretty quick tho. I did make a few changes tho. I used chicken breast, cut it into bite size pieces and browned. No green pepper as I didnt have any, but used mushrooms instead. Used ricotta instead of cottage (I didnt have the latter). And I took the advice of other posters and sweated the zucchini first. Next time tho, I will rinse better, as I found it very salty. I hope this freezes well, as I made a huge pan!

Zucchini Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
ok, I have tried many, many recipes off this site and altho most are very good, I do not feel compelled to write a review very often.....but I had to for this one! I made this and used my dad as a guinea pig (he is the consumate baker) He was stunned and amazed how this tasted! I had a family BBQ last night with 40 people and All were fooled! I did make a few alterations to TRY to make it a bit healthier. 1. I up'd the recipe by 1/2 to make 2 pie plate sizes rather than 1 9 x 13 2. changed all white sugar to brown 3. cut sugar way down. even tho I up'd the rest of recipe, I cut the sugar almost in half. using 1/2 cup mixed with zucchini and only 1 cup for the cobbler part. 4. used 1/2 flour and 1/2 rolled oats 5. I also did not mix half the crumb mix with the zucchini. I added 'some' tho to give it a bit of body. I also found I had to cook the zucchini alot longer than 15 minutes and I agree completely that using the monster ones from home garden are the best. Mine grow to over 1 foot long before I get around to picking them and this is the perfect recipe to eat those up. I got orders for next week :-) This is a dessert that will be used ALOT

Springtime Spinach Salad

Reviewed: May 15, 2006
Excellent!! Made it for the mother-in-law for Mothers Day.....big hit. The only alteration I made was leaving out the kiwi and I found the directions made way too much dressing so you can probably cut in half. Will certainly make again.

Thirty Minute Meal

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
nice hearty meal for a very cold night. I made a few changes tho, as others suggested. I added chili powder and garlic (will use something spicier next time tho) and instead of tomato soup, I used stewed tomatoes and omitted the water. I simmered it uncovered for the 20 minutes to help evaporate some of the juices. I will make again....especially on these cold Canadian winter nights

Eggnog Quick Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2005
not sure if I did something wrong, but this recipe was way too bland. We could not really taste the eggnog or rum (I used real rum instead of extract) It had the texture and taste of a plain pound cake. I'm not sure what I could do to boose the flavour, but I might try to play with it some. As it stands, only worth a 3 star, sorry.

Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
Nice side dish. I left out the saffron (way too expensive) and used chicken broth instead of water. I also used wild rice instead of white. Cooking time is a bit longer but it was very good. I will make again, but maybe add something else to give it a kick. We do like things spicy! :-)

Lime Chicken Picante

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2005
easy, easy....I doubled the sauce tho. Nice mix of flavours but I think next time I will add a little kick. Maybe cayenne or tobasco as we didn't find it spicy at all. I did use mild salsa, next time I might use med instead. Nice/quick recipe for mid-week dinner. A bit sloppy for company tho. I paired it with Mexican Rice and a veggie dish. I will make again

Pork Loin Stuffed with Spinach

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
easy to prepare and not too much fuss. I used fresh baby spinach and a smaller tenderloin, but worked out just fine. I felt the 2 hour cooking time was way too long, so watch that. I also used a little less orange juice, as it was a little overpowering. Overall, a really nice taste. I would do again.
