Curried Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2005
The soup's consistency was good but I thought it needed a lot of salt to bring out the flavor. Also, I'd put less curry powder - it overwhelmed the carrots. Sour cream on top and some salt made it very good. This recipe, as is, makes A LOT of soup.

Cousin Cosmo's Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2004
Very, very good. Moist, healthy, and delicious. My variation was to slice pocket into the chicken breast instead of pounding, and stuff with feta mixture. I browned it in half a tbs. of butter first. I also used frozen spinach and canned tomatoes, because that's what I had. I really liked it, and so did my S.O..

Spicy Peach-Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2004
It's so hard to find a good recipe for pork chops, but this one is great! I used fresh, unsweetened peaches and added 2T of brown sugar and added 1/2T minced garlic to add flavor. Be careful not to overcook, or it will be dry.

Creamed Spinach II

Reviewed: May 22, 2004
I made this recipe and thought it was tasty, when using modifications like the others who've reviewed this recipe. I added a small can of mushrooms and sauteed onion and garlic first. I'll make it again, but it isn't a favorite - just a decent way to get spinach into my body.

Excellent and Healthy Cornbread

Reviewed: May 14, 2004
Yummy and very moist! I replaced the salt with seasoned salt, left out the sugar, and put in 1/2c finely grated sharp cheddar and 1/2c corn. I'll add 2 tsp sugar next time.

Sugar-Free Bread Pudding with Whiskey Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2004
This was great! I modified this recipe to use some peaches from our tree last summer, and made a sauce using 1 cup of peach juice, 2T each of fat free half and half, fat free sweetened condensed milk, and Splenda, 1T of vanilla and cinnamon to taste. Everything was very well received and didn't last long!

Carrots Au Gratin

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2004
This was good. I'd use a little seasoning salt, though, next time. But I'll make it again!

Baked Ham with Orange & Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2004
Decent flavor, but nothing to write home about. It was enjoyed, as a ham usually is.

Fresh Asparagus Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2004
Double YUM!! I used chicken broth and skim milk, added the juice of one half lemon (about 2 tsp), and used seasoned salt instead of regular. Also, had to use a little extra broth to get a good puree from the blender. To make it easier and quicker, I'd recommend chopping the asparagus into small pieces (inch or two is good), and cook veggies with the lid on to reduce evaporation. Loved it!!
