Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 10, 2013
I cut the recipe in half for one loaf. Also used half the sugar (1/2 cup) and 1/4 c butter, 1/4 c shortening (my preference). Froze well. Very moist and tasty with a subtle banana flavor. This recipe should not be graded low because of the combination of bananas and chocolate as one person did. It was their choice to make this recipe which clearly by the title combines chocolate and banana! I don't get how one can give a low grade based on that! Would make again.

Modenese Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2013
I think this is the best meal I have prepared EVER. I used half butter/half olive oil. I also used a cast iron skillet and after browning, placed the skillet right in the oven to finish cooking along with a separate dish of small potatoes, onions and broccoli with a drizzle of olive oil and sea salt. Baked everything for 1/2 hour. FANTASTIC.

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2012
I omitted completely the white sugar. Just 1/2 cup brown sugar. My grandson (age 3) said it was "the best cake I ever got!".

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
Only substitution may be for a box of chicken broth. . . would not change anything else. It is a fantastic, easy recipe.

Roasted Carrot Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Different but delicious. I did not measure ingredients but was close to the amounts called for in recipe. I did use feta cheese and spinach rather than blue cheese and arugala. Any combination would work that one prefers - it does not take away from the original recipe. Will definitely make again.

Ratatouille Bake

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
This is a great recipe. Quick. Easy. I have also used tortellini as well as mini ravioli. Rather than mozzarella cheese, a four cheese blend (Trader Joe's quattro) or grated Italian cheese on top is also very tasty. When I don't know what to make and have limited time, this is the recipe. My adult children and their familes also love it.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
I have made this MANY times. The only small change is I add 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning and place the chicken and veggies with gravy in the bottom of my pie dish and then cover with a pie crust on top only to reduce the carbs/calories. Many friends and family have raved about this recipe.

Tortellini Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2008
I used Gianelli hot italian sausage and a food processor for the veggies. Absolutely NO GREASE from the sausage and the taste was awesome. Definitely a keeper - top of the list!

Beef Pot Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I have made this several times with a sirloin tip and it is absolutely fantastic. Have also added potatoes and carrots to roast. Best result was in a LeCreuset pot, going from stove top to oven. The meat is tender and moist, the gravy/juice outstanding.

Tangy Turkey and Swiss Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2008
Delicious Friday night supper. I used another recommendation and added alfalfa sprouts. Also used whole grain bread and a pannini press. Looking forward to making again with leftover sandwich spread.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
I've tried a few biscotti recipes, but this one is a keeper. I used slivered almonds rather than pistachio . . . either one would be fine in a great cookie like this.

Taco Seasoning I

This takes only a minute or two to prepare. Everything is in the cupboard and it's great to know what's in the seasoning! The flavor is perfect.

Italian Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
Great soup. I used frozen corn and green beans, one can of kidney beans, about 1/3 cup of ditalini and red cabbage (that's what I had on hand). Soup is healthy and satisfying. Will definitely make again - my husband liked it very much as well.
