Chicken Alfredo

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
Alfredo sauce has been my nemesis for years until now! This recipe is fabulous. I used low fat milk and cream cheese and did not find it heavy or sticky. I used real garlic insted of garlic salt and substituted asparagus for broccoli. Fabulous meal!

Overnight Bubble Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2005
This is one of my best finds on this site!!!! I couldnt find frozen dinner rolls at the store so I tried Pillsbury Country biscuits in the refrigerator can. They worked perfectly, but you need two cans for the recipe. These were tasty and moist and easy to make. They smell up the house pretty good too! Thanks for this great recipe!

Sweet Potato Cookies II

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
What an unexpected treat. I tried this recipe for fun but it is really good. I used a bit more sugar than the recipe and added vanilla (1 tsp. They have a wonderful texture. I made the first batch plain and added a simple glaze on top. The second batch I pushed a mini marchmallow in the middle and topped with a bit of brown sugar like a mini sweet potato casserole. They looked really cute and were a great thanksgiving warm up.

Baked Ziti with Turkey Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2005
I enjoyed this recipe but I did almost everything differently. I used it more for inspiration. I did not have turkey so I used chicken for the meatballs. I did not have tomato sauce so I used rose sauce and threw in some fresh tomatoes. I did not have ricotta so I whipped half a cup of sour cream with half a cup of cream cheese. I did not have Ziti so I used radiatore. Other than that I followed the instructions:) The meatballs were tender and it was very creamy. The creamy sauce really cut dow on the acidity of the tomatoes. The meatballs were great. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2005
This recipe works well and is easy. I substituted regualr eggs and only used 6 but I still felt it was too eggy for my liking and I would have liked more hashbrowns. I added a bit of rosemary to kick up the ham and I liked that addition. I will use this recipe again with a few changes.

Apple Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
This is a delicious alternative to apple crisp.I served it in pie wedges with a dollop of vanilla ice cream and a bit of caramel sauce. I used some of the other suggestions and used 1/2cup of oats and 1/2 cup of walnuts and added a bit of lemon zest. I left my apples pretty chunky to see if I could get more apple taste based on others reviews. I had to cook mine about 50 minutes but that might just be my oven and so it was a bit brown on top which I disguised with some powdered sugar. I was very pleased with the result.

Oil Pie Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2006
I was a little skeptical but this crust really worked and it was super easy. It doesn;t quite have the same texture as a butter crust but this is great for beginners, people watching their fat intake or for a heavier pie. I used it for butter tarts and got lots of compliments. Be sure to roll it thin!

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
I love these but you need GOOD prosciutto! If it is too salty it ruins the dish.

Brie Cranberry and Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
I will try again with a higher quality pizza crust (I used a bisquick crust recipe from the box...not so good)and whole berry cranberry sauce. I love the idea of these flavours but I think I needed higher quality ingredients.

Yummy Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
Delicious! The flavours blend so nicely in this dish. I did not have enough yams and added some butterbut squash which tased great too. I crushed the pecans for the top because I only had peices but next time I will use the full halves.

Lunch Box Pizzas

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
These were okay. I do have to admit I used ham and pineapple instead of pepperoni so it may be my fault that they are only okay. I tried the recipe because I have used a similar recipe with a ground turkey and ricotta filling that my whole family loves. It was hard to live up to but in general this idea is great for lunches.

Ham and Fruit Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2006
I thought this was a really nice recipe. I took some of the comments from other reviewers to heart an made a few changes. In order to cut the fruitiness that some people complained about I swirled in a teaspoon or so of toasted sesame oil with the olive oil and threw in 1/3 Cup chopped red pepper. I cooked my couscous in chicken stock with a small pat of butter and salt and pepper. Then in fluffing stage of the couscous I threw in some toasted sesame seeds to tie it all together. I thought it was great!

Fresh Apple Tarts

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
I liked this recipe but I made a lot of changes. I used pecans, apples, brown sugar and maple syrup. I also used prepared tart shells and just pulled up the edges to make them fold over. They were a hit at my meeting.

Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2005
This was easy:) My first attempt at a fruit sauce. I had leftover defrosted mixed berries in the fridge and used them instead of blueberries but did everything else the same. My family loved this on waffles!
