Marinated Wild Salmon

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2011
Loved this! I put the green onions, cilantro and garlic in the food processor before adding to the marinade. I replaced the red pepper flakes with paprika. While grilling on the BBQ I put the marinade in a saucepan and brought it to a low boil and then let it simmer for a few minutes. We lightly drizzled the marinade over the salmon to serve. It was fabulous!

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
So good! I added 1/2 tsp nutmeg and swapped half of the oil for applesauce like many reviewers suggested. I didn't add a crumb topping like others have because I just didn't have the time. It's a great bread without it... and a little healthier. Either way, you can't go wrong :)

Great Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
I found this recipe here a few years ago and it has become a tradition every Christmas Eve. I add some cloves and cinnamon and replace pecans instead of walnuts. Then I serve with vanilla ice cream while it's still piping hot. This is sooo easy and everyone loves it! This may be what heaven tastes like :)

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
This gets 5 stars for both taste and ease! When my husband came home and saw that Mexican was on the menu he said, 'oh, I ate at Chiptole like 3 hours ago.' So he wasn't really in the mood for it again... or very hungry, for that matter. Anyway, the man went back for a heaping second helping! Both of us commented on how amazing it was! I took the advice of many previous reviewers. I threw 3 large frozen chicken breasts in the crock pot and replaced the water with more broth. I also added some sweet white corn. I shredded the chicken about 30 mins before serving and plopped it right back in. I had bowls of cheese, chopped avacado, and tortilla chips for everyone to add on their own. This was SOOO good! I'm so glad there are leftovers for tonite. My only change I would make next time would be to double the cilantro.

Eggplant Tomato Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
This is a great option if you're trying to drop a few pounds... or even if you're not! Anyway, I put salt, pepper and dried basil on the eggplant. Then placed the tomato on top and put the same seasonings on it with a light sprinkling of light mozzarella cheese. Two of these and some steamed shrimp made for a satisfying diet meal.

Honey Wheat Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
I made two loaves yesterday and they're almost gone! I did everything by hand and followed the recipe as instructed. I did use butter instead of shortening, 2% evaporated milk, and I increased the honey a little. This bread is heavenly!

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2009
Great marinade! I just did chicken breasts on the grill. I doubled the recipe, increased the lime juice by 50%, and added some fresh and finely chopped cilantro. Soooo good!

Tortellini Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
Amazing soup! And incredibly easy too. I added more tortellini and beef broth so there would be more of what the kids would eat. I also added more zucchini and omitted the bell peppers. The flavors in the soup complemented eachother beautifully, I think this is the best soup I've ever made. Served with a little mozzarella and some warm white bread rolls. It was very filling and perfect for a chilly night.

Parsley Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
These were lacking something. Nothing that more salt couldn't fix though.

Chicken Enchilada Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
I followed the recipe and had a taste and found that it was pretty bland. So then I began to add some more flavor and ended up with a fabulous soup! I added 1/4 c enchilada sauce, 1 c cheese, 1 c broth and a little salt and pepper. In addition to adding flavor the broth thinned out the masa harina a bit which was initially way too thick. This is a great recipe once you kick up the flavor a little. I served tortilla chips and chopped tomato to add as well as avocado slices on the side. Yum!

Pesto Pasta with Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I really enjoyed the flavors of this pasta dish. I used the marinade to cook the chicken in and added a little extra garlic. The sundried tomatoes really add a lot. I was however, dissapointed with how dry it was. I used less pasta than what was called for. Perhaps I'll look for a creamy pesto version of this recipe.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
Yum! These are sooo good! I only slightly changed the recipe by adding choc. chips to the batter and then sprinkling a few on top. Because of the kids, I only added nuts to the top of the grown-up half. I used 2 egg whites but kept everything else as instructed in the recipe. Then I lightly sprayed the baking dish with Pam. Once baked I let it cool for about 23 mins, it was still warm but not unmanagable to cut. After having made it there's nothing else that I would change for next time. Some reviewers complained about the vanilla, butter and baking soda, but it was a perfect combo for me. I will be making these again for sure!

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
This just didn't do it for me. I followed the recipe as stated. The flavors were one dimensional and disappointing. Sorry.

Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2008
This is a wonderful recipe! I used nearly 2 oatmeal packets inside the batter and added a dash of cloves. I also used 1/2 c. splenda and 1/2 c. sugar. Then I added 4 egg whites in place of 2 whole eggs. I don't usually change up recipes to make them healthier, but it was fabulous with them. The remainder of the ingredients I followed as directed. I made them into muffins baking them at 350 for 16 minutes. The smell is heavenly and the taste is even better! Thanks for a super easy and delicious recipe!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
This is a great recipe that turns out moist and beautiful. I've made them a couple times and must say that they are much better without the choc. chips. You must know that I am a total chocoholic, but the chocolate overpowers the fabulous pumpkin flavor. These muffins taste best with chopped pecans instead, everything else, follow as directed. They're great!

Maple-Garlic Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
Great recipe! I read the reviews and came up with a winner! I used the mild and creamy Grey Poupon for the dijon mustard. I used jarred minced garlic and olive oil instead of sesame. I used 3/4 c. of regular syrup and added 1 tsp. of soy sauce. This created the perfect marinade- sweet but not overpowering. I pierced the meat with a fork and placed it in a large baggie and marinated over night. To cook, I placed it in a 13x9 sprayed with Pam and then sprinkled the tenderlion with some salt and dried minced onion. I baked it in the oven at 375 for 35 mins (it was only a 1 lb. loin). Meanwhile I boiled the marinade to reduce and cook it. I sliced the pork and drizzled the marinade over top. Served with broccoli, roasted potatoes and biscuits. Great meal! Wonderful flavor!

Meaty Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
This turned out well. I used all italian turkey sausage, added some corn, italian seasonings and more pasta. The meal was hearty and healthy. I only cooked it for four hours on high. It thickened up nicely on it's own. I would make it again.

White Cake Frosting II

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2008
I followed the recipe exactly. It went on well and looked beautiful, but it tasted exactly like what it was... sugar flavored shortening. Not so appetizing. I will try it with butter next time- that sounds much better.

Pinwheel Italian Calzones

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
I give this recipe 3 1/2 stars. I left out the onion and bell peppers and added 1/4 tsp onion powder and 1/4 tsp garlic powder. The filling turned out very well. I found that I do agree with many other reviewers who said that the crescent roll dough was too rich. I'm sure if I tried the recipe again with a pizza dough I will like it much more. Also, make sure you use a pizza sauce that you really like. We used the Contadina brand and we were not impressed.

Shrimp Etoufee III

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
My first attempt at etoufee and I was pleased. It doesn't look very appetizing, but it's a tastey and filling meal. I halved the recipe and added brown rice. The butter flavor was too much for me so I will be sure to use less next time... it's really not necessary. The kids enjoyed it (which was a shocker to me), I'm sure that I will make it again.
