Shrimp and Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
Good & easy. Sub'd balsamic vinegar for black and penne pasta for udon. Doubled shrimp, sauce and tripled broccoli. Using crunchy PB removes need for chopped pnuts. Nuked sauce for a minute so ingredients would blend. Not real happy with how the shrimp tasted. Not over done but not real flavorful. Doing again I would sub half sesame oil with half hot sesame oil for zip. And I would cut back a little on the pb. I will make this again. Used reg. soy sauce and not salty at all. Thanks.

Byrdhouse Spinach Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
Very good and very easy. Make sure you chop up the spinach. I got lazy and didn't. You know you can't get a whole cooked leaf of spinach on a teaspoon? My wife made me wear a lobster bib.

Caramelized Onion and Blue Cheese Orzo

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2008
I 1/2'd the pasta and doubled the spinach. Used prewashed baby spinach and rotini shaped pasta. Also sub'd cream cheese for mascarpone. Had only 4 oz. of the blue cheese. VERY GOOD. It cools very quickly. Had to nuke individual servings. Fine for wife and I. Would be very difficult to serve warm to many more.

Sean's Mommy's Roasted Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Didn't have parsnips or butternut squash. Added regular potato, garlic cloves and onions. Got turnips and rutabaga from our CSA and never cooked or tasted before. If, like me, you never had these veggies before then this recipe is a great introduction to them.

Mandarin Chicken Skillet

Reviewed: May 2, 2006
Very good and very easy. Doubled broccoli & mushrooms, used 1 1/2 lbs. chicken, cooked mushrooms more than recipe said & had to add more butter to pan when mushrooms were done. Wisked flour w/melted butter before adding 1 cup OJ(skipped concentrate & water).Added onions and broccoli same time as chick & rooms. Waited until very end to add two cans of Man. oranges (already at room temp). Just mixed & served over rice.

Fiesta Enchiladas

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2005
This is a very good recipe, it just needed spicing up. Fills you up but not out. Instead of 28oz Tom Sauce, I used 16oz salsa & 2/8oz cans of Tom Sauce. Doesn't say how much taco seasoning to use so I added one of those premeasured envelopes. I baked covered without cheese topping for 15 min. Applied cheese after removing foil & baked for another 15 min.

Shrimpcargot

Reviewed: May 22, 2010
Size does matter. Best result came from smaller mushrooms because you can pop them into your mouth whole. Used baby bellas, cooked at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Get the finest graded cheese you can and don't fret if it all falls off. Use parchment paper in pan to keep all of the juices close. Trying with scallops next.

Asparagus Rolantina

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2005
This is surprisingly very good. I used 1/2# of swiss (6 slices), pre-sliced & packaged deli ham 3/4# (12 slices)& about 1 1/2# of asparagus(steamed). No toothpicks just seam side down & worked fine. Make sure the asparagus is cooked to your desired doneness before rolling. Doesn't really cook very much in oven. Avoid the temptation(I didn't)to add more butter, you won't need it. Cooked full 20 minutes, let rest 5. Another surprise was that I didn't think it wasn't too salty but my wife did. Don't forget to add pepper. It really added something when leftovers were reheated next day.

Applesauce Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
I love to cook but hate to bake. This was easy, good and makes a lot. I doubled the recipe for a 10 x 14 pan and came out great. What more can you ask of a recipe.

Cajun Seafood Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
Very Good. I did follow some of the advice from other reviewers. Doubled liquid, just used shrimp(2#'s), added slightly steamed broccoli. I loved it as did my wife and four friends. One said that they would have to tone down the pepper for their child.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2006
I used onions(yellow, kinda big) instead of leeks, cut the chicken broth to two soup can size and used light cream in place of half & half. It was great! I think the pan cooking of the baby bella mushrooms really made a difference. Don't take a short cut with this step. This is now one of my top 5 soups.

Spinach and Rice (Spanakorizo)

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2005
I think this turned out the way it is supposed to. My parents and I and my wife all thought it was good. I cooked it for 40 minutes to get the rice to soften up. Is the rice supposed to be al dente? I used froz spinach and my own chicken broth for the water. I added a whole cup of rice and with all the liquid I added didn't think it would be a problem to get it cooked. My parents liked it without the feta and lemon. My wife and I liked it with. I think I will partially pre-cook the rice in broth before adding to other ingredients.

Wonderful! Cooking times are off to get the taters done. Used one of the Bush Grillen Beans. Good Job! Can't wait to eat the leftovers.

Strawberry Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
This was good. My wife said it tasted like strawberry ice cream w/choc syrup on it. I followed reviewers suggestion and put berries in the blender. I doubled the recipe and it fit well in a 9 x 13 and a large pie plate. Texture was between brownie and cheese cake. Different but good.

Pasta Primavera with Italian Turkey Sausage

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2006
Very good. I haven't found a turkey sausage that I like so I used Italian venison sausage. I substituted cheese tortilini and used canned diced tomatoes instead of fresh. I also took another reviewers suggestion and used Feta instead of parmesian. Next time I will make it with some type of plain pasta. I like rich but tortilini was a little over the top.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
This was easy & good. Could have been more flavorful. Will follow some reviewers ideas next time and use stronger flavored addons like feta and grilled onions.

Greek Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
I made this recipe as written. I did have additional dressing on hand as recommended by other reviewers. It is a big winner in our house. There was no need to add the back up dressing. Only thing I can think that might have been different than others who thought it needed more was the brand of marinated artichoke hearts? Since that seems to be the dominant flavoring.

Pizza Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
A great recipe! I too used turkey pepperoni and omitted any other meat. Sauted the veggies in a little bacon fat (calm down, it was only a tablespoon). Put cheese as recipe instructs but will probably mix in next time. Only fed 3 in our house. You can add ingredients the same way you select toppings for your regular pizza. Used jar spagetti sauce and was fine.

Grilled Fish Steaks

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
The sodium content scared me but I think I lowered it a bit by substituting 1 tsp.lemon pepper and omitted the 1 tsp. salt and 1 tsp. pepper. I still added the called for lemon juice. Used this on fresh pollock. It was wonderful! Even my father who barely tolorates fish had a second helping.

Baked Soy Lemon Chops

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
Good marinade. Ease of recipe is important to me. I put three boneless pieces in a freezer zip-lok bag. Added the ingredients, zip closed and massaged the meat and marinade. Put in bowl and set in the fridge for three hours turning bag 3 times. I am sure the longer it soaks the stronger the flavor. I then emptied bag into 8 x 8 pyrex and placed in pre-heated oven. 30 min later done and good. Only easier if somebody did it for you!
