Sweet-and-Sour Coleslaw

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2005
I didn't have cabbage on hand, so i used red and green peppers, onion, carrots, and canned corn. Mixed up the dressing and tossed. It was delicious. I may make my salads like this more often!!!

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
With some changes, these were excellent! I added some dried cranberries, and used cilantro instead of parsley. I used two whole eggs, and had to add some extra bread crumbs, and as another reviewer suggested, i coated the burgers with flour. And we cooked these on the grill rather than on the stove. We melted good quality blue cheese over the top, dressed the burger with cranberry sauce and caramelized mushrooms & onions. The blue cheese and cranberry sauce complemented each other perfectly, it was delicious!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
These were great! When i told my husband what I was making, he scrunched up his nose and said cautiously..."whhhhy?". They were SO good. My husband was amazed how good they were, and was *disappointed* when they were gone. I can't believe I made Brussels Sprouts, and that they were good! This is what i did: I cut off the bottoms little bit, pealed off the top 1-2 leaves, and cut them in half. Put them in a plastic bag and tossed with olive oil, S&P. Put into the oven on some parchment paper, and baked for about 20-25 min on 425-450 degrees. Turn them 2-3 times while baking. They're done when they started to darken. Try one and make sure they're tender before taking them out of the oven.

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
This was excellent. I only used half the butter and half the cream (but used the same amount of flour). If I had thought about it ahead of time, i would had used condensed milk instead of the half and half. I also used brown rice and served with whole wheat Italian bread. Delicious!

My Crab Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Yum! I made a few tiny changes. Used frozen imitation crab meat and threw it into the food processor. Also chopped onion in food processor instead of sauteing. And i stretched it with some sticky rice. Didn't cover with crumbs. And i served it with a mayonnaise-lemon sauce (lemon juice and zest with old bay seasoning and cayenne).

One Bowl Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
These were great and SO easy! I changed the recipe slightly. Since i made a half batch, i used 2 eggs (hard to use 1.5 eggs) and eliminated the nuts. I also added a 1/2 tsp (or less) of baking powder. This made the brownies very slighly cakey. As my husband described it, they were the perfect balance between fudgey and cakey. Everyone at the dinner party raved about them! So in short, i recommend adding an extra egg and a pinch of baking powder!

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
These are wonderful! Although, I admit I have yet to finish making them, I know they will be delicious. I will be making "Cream Cheese Frosting II" from this site. The reviews were correct in that they essentially bake in the same form that they're placed on the sheet. So, after using a mini-2-tsp cookie scoop, I dampened my finger and flattened out each cookie and thinned it out a bit. I used a stone cookie sheet, and baked for 12 minutes. This made 54 pies (or 108 halves). Very fluffy, and very delicious! Can't wait to taste the final product!!!

Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
This was so good! I used two chicken breasts, which i boiled and then shredded by hand. I used a 28 oz can of chunky tomatos and a small can of tomato paste. I also added a can of sweet corn. Instead of chili powder, i used chili sauce, which may be the reason i got a sweet sauce, can't think of what else caused it to be sweet, maybe the tomato paste?? ...but in any case, it was great! My Husband loved it!!!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
Yup, like everyone else said...amazing, light and fluffy!! I think the key to making them fluffy was sifting the ingredients, which i usually never do, but wanted to ensure fluffy pancakes!!! YUM!

Cherry Chicken Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
This was fantastic! My Husband even said "wow! What made you think of this???" Thats a huge complement! I took other posters suggestions of adding water chest nuts. I also used peanuts, rather than almonds. I chopped the peanuts and water chest nuts in the food processor. I used fresh cherries, cut them in quarters. I also used sushi vinegar which is rice vinegar with sugar, among other things, so i eliminated the honey. This was fantastic. Loved it! Will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the recipe!!!

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2005
My Fiance loved this! He has been asking for bacon ever since! However, i did not use the corn syrup, mayo or onion flake. I just fried the bacon, sauted the mushrooms, and cooked the chicken on the stovetop. Then i put mustard mixed with honey, on the chicken, followed by the bacon, mushrooms and cheese. Delish!

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2005
Yumm! I loved this recipe!! I didn't have any peanut oil, so i used more sesame oil than called for and alittle bit of olive oil. I let marinate for about 1.5 hours and then broiled for about 15 minutes. It burnt alittle bit...but i acutually think that made it taste better! Thanks for the recipe, i'll be making this one again! I even may use this marinade on chicken!!

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2005
Yummm!!! I actually used butter instead of margrine and cut the amount in half using applesause for the other half, and i cut the sugar in half using splenda for the other half. Came out delicious and can't tell at all that it has half the fat and calories!!! Oh, and be sure to use over ripend bananas (almost rotten) to get the full/strong banana flavor!!!

Sausage and Rice Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: May 1, 2005
Very good. Things i did differently was use instant brown rice, canned whole tomatos broken into chunks, spicy italian sausage, and no seasonings (the sausage was enough). My fiance loved it!

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
My husband's words: "Ohhhh, wow! This is so much more flavorful than I expected! I thought these were just gonna be your standard fajitas...but these are so good!". I doubled the sauce, used several colorful peppers and a large onion. I marinated both the chicken and the veggies, and added all the marinade when I added each component to the pan. Don't forget the lemon at the end! Made some brown rice to go with it (always my husband's request), and served with cheese and sour cream. Very good!

Spicy Peach-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2005
I loved this, and my FI enjoyed it but didn't rave about it like he sometimes does with my meals. We've been trying to cut rice, pasta and potatos out of our diet, so we didn't have rice with this meal...but if we did, i know it would have been awesome. The sause was delicious. But if you do that, you will certainly consume the added calories within the preserve. I'll probably make this again.

Cabbage Rolls II

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
This was surprisingly good. I've never made these...never even heard of them, but i ran across the recipe and it had great reviews i decided to try it. I cooked in the crock, tripled the amount of sauce, and added one can of tomato paste to thicken. I wish i had added some garlic powder to the meat mixture, but otherwise it was very good. Being Italian, i questioned the sauce with it being quite plain..but it was excellent. I had to serve it over *something*, so thankfully I had some leftover brown rice which worked great!
