Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
I followed the recipe fairly carefully, except I baked the potatoes instead of boiling, used brown sugar (and only about half) for the main part, and not so much milk. I used a deeper dish so cooked for about 40 minutes total. It was a super hit with all ages at the Thanksgiving table, but everyone commented that it would be much better if it wasn't so sweet (even though I cut back on the sugar). It really tasted more like a decadent desert! I'll definitely make again, but next time won't use so much butter or sugar.

Linguine with Clams

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
Nice base recipe. Scaled down to 4 servings and doubled mushrooms, added a very large chopped green Chili, (sauteed in olive oil instead of butter) used dried parsley, and added enough sour cream to give it a nice texture. Used 1 can of clams. Served mixed with whole wheat angel hair, it was delicious.

Western Broccoli

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2008
Didn't modify this recipe too much. Used non-fat dressing and cheese, and eliminated the salt, to make this a one-dish vegetarian meal for two. It was good, not outstanding though, hubby agreed. I like a similar salad I make with raisins and grated carrot much better, but this is more hearty and protein-rich with the beans.

Yakisoba Chicken

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
Great basic recipe. I used pork instead of chicken, regular spaghetti instead of the noodles called for, a splash of fish sauce, and lots of Korean red chili paste (probably 3 Tbs). I threw in a very large minced jalapeno, a few splashes of white wine, and a couple tsp. of fresh minced ginger because we LIKE spicy! I would have given this 5 stars but the half cup of soy sauce is just WaYyyyy too much. Cut the soy in half (at least) and it's a winner!

Stuffed Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
I did make a few changes: I added 1/4 cup of chopped parsley, 1/4 cup of Italian cheese mixture, some extra chopped garlic, some dried crushed chilies, and about an ounce of spicy sausage to the stuffing mixture - we like lots of flavor! Topped it with canned diced Italian tomatoes and cheddar cheese. It turned out really, really good!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
Good basic recipe. I did use 1/2 cup of wine and about 3/4 cup seasoned chicken broth and after reducing there was still barely enough sauce to cook the shrimp in. I added about 1/2 cup of half & half, 1/4 cup shredded mozza cheese, and a Tbs. of parmesan to the pasta before adding the sauce, and it was scrumptious. One other modification: used EVOO instead of butter and it was fine.

Polynesian Sausage Supper

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
Pretty good, easy recipe. This would go good with a nice spicy chicken sausage or even diced chicken or pork. Not flavourful enough on its own, so I threw in a few minced garlic cloves instead of powder... a splash of soy sauce & white wine, and half a tsp of crushed chilies. I used fresh tomatoes and a squirt of ketchup instead of canned. I like spicy, so used chopped new mexico green chilies instead of bell peppers. Used seasoned (garlic) chicken stock as that's what I had on hand. Added a couple of tablespoons of fresh chopped parsley at the end - was quite good.

Eggplant, Zucchini and Sweet Red Pepper Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2005
Didn't vary this recipe much other than I left the zucchini to sweat for about 20 minutes before rinsing. Also used white rice which was fine. Used a 14 oz can of diced italian tomatoes instead of fresh. Added a Tbs. of lemon juice. It was surprisingly thick, so added a little more water. Topped off each serving with Mozza cheese and it was an extremely filling dish! Will probably make this again.
