Raspberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
I used Greek yogurt in place of regular yogurt and the batter was really, really thick. I had to add some more egg white to be able to stir it. Lesson learned! Anyhow, the lemon flavor combined with the raspberries was really delicious. I'd try it again - this time, with regular style yogurt

Popovers

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Overcooked! Popovers should be light inside and these were like a roll almost all the way through although I followed the exact recipe. Flavor was ok, but next time I would cut the cooking time 5 minutes on each heat setting and see what happens.

Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
I love that this recipe uses brown sugar as well as white. Gives it a little something special. The whole family loves this one. Can't wait to serve this one up at Thanksgiving dinner!

Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
I found the crescent rolls to be way too rich tasting. Loaded with butter and salt it overpowered the flavor of the ham and cheese. I definitely will not be making these again. I should say that we tend to eat pretty healthy and don't ever really use butter so it very well could be we're not used to that flavor.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
I made a couple of changes. I cut both the garlic salt and the salt in half. I also added 1 tb of minced garlic. The meatballs didn't hold together very well. The mix was a bit more watery than other meatballs I've made, I think next time I'd use an egg in place of the milk. As for flavor, I think they were a little more "herb-y" tasting than I'd prefer, and I'd probably go easy on the Italian seasoning next time too. Overall, an ok recipe.

Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
Very VERY salty. I did only 1 tsp and that was still far too much salt. Also dry, I will add more mayo next time.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
A teeny bit bland, but a good base recipe. I added a bit of garlic salt and they were perfect.

Caldo Verde (Portuguese Green Soup)

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
YUM! Great recipe, tons of flavor. It tastes just like the soup you get at a Portuguese restaurant. The only thing I changed was I used chicken stock instead of water. Delicious.

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
This is a decent base recipe, but the proportion of the ingredients I felt was way off. A whole package of lasagna was way too much. I used 12 noodles total. I also felt 2 jars of pasta sauce would have totally drowned this lasagna, and I am a huge sauce fan and tend to use more than others. 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 was more like it. It also lacked spice, and I added several spices to the veggies while cooking them (garlic salt, onion powder, onion salt, garlic salt, parsley). I also used different veggies since I hate mushrooms: 1 red pepper, 1 onion, 1 zucchini and 1 package of microwaved frozen chopped spinach. I'm always trying to lighten things up a bit so I used reduced fat (not fat free) cheeses and only used 1 egg and it was really good.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
OK. The cook time was way too long, and the bread was pretty dry on the outside yet not cooked all the way through.

Ali's Amazing Bruschetta

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2007
An easy, quick recipe that came out very good. The only change I made was I sprinkled the bread slices with a bit of garlic powder before adding the topping. I think next time I'll follow another reviewer's suggestion and add a bit of balsamic vinegar.

Corn and Zucchini Melody

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
This one was blah. It tasted bland, and was definitely not worth the effort. I think the recipe calls for too much corn. The sweetness of the corn overpowered the bacon and cheese flavors. It would have been much easier to crack open a can of corn!

Marinated Greek Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2007
I made this with several changes. I used garlic & herb feta instead of sundried tomato feta, cut the lemon juice to 1 tb, and added a dash of basil & garlic salt. I also marinated it overnight and used the thin cut boneless breast filets as they cook faster and you get more flavor on them since they're thinner. They came out fabulous. Soft, juicy, and full of flavor. This one's a keeper.

No-Fuss Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
I'm not much of a baker, and this cake was really easy and delicious. Very moist. I made no modifications to the recipe and it came out perfect. I'll definitely be serving this one again.

Creamy Veggie Fondue

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
This is a fantastic recipe. Lots of flavor in this fondue. The only modification I made was to add just a dash more white wine to thin out the sauce a bit. This was creamy, rich, and full of flavor. I served it with broccolli, french baguette pieces, wheat thins, red pepper slices and baby carrots. It was a hit.

Zucchini and Potato Bake

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
This was quick, easy and really good. It was a tiny bit bland, but I think that may be because I used the dehydrated minced onion. Next time I'll either use the wet kind or fresh garlic. I added a generous sprinkle of garlic powder and a bit of cayenne pepper for kick and this was really good, especially on the potatoes.
