Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2005
My hubby loved them! I used 1 tbsp of lemon juice and some lemon zest instead of lemon extract. They were really moist and delicious. UPDATE: I made these again and refrigerated the dough for about 24 hours before I made the cookies. The dough was easier to handle after being in the frig- not as sticky. They also came out even better than the first time I made them...a bit of crispiness on the bottom and around the sides and soft inside. The powdered sugar seemed to adhere better, too. Putting the dough in the frig was definitely a good idea. These are our favorite!

Ham with Pineapple

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2005
Delicious. I made this for Easter dinner with a few modifications: used ground cloves and pineapple chunks instead. I threw it all in the crockpot- first hour on high and then about 5 hours on low. Came out so juicy and tender.

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
YUM! These turned out great! (Even better than my mom's.) I used canned sweet potatoes/yams. I turned the heat to high the last few minutes to carmelize them. I also added a tad more brown sugar to thicken. They were wonderful and I will make them every year for the holidays!

Cider Vinegar Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2005
I didn't have garlic salt so I used some celery salt and garlic powder. I also added some red pepper flakes because we like spicy food and added a bit of water to cut down on the tang of the vinegar. Overall, I think it's a great recipe for chicken...not your everyday flavor!

Amazing Brown Rice Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
It was ok. I added some chopped carrots to the mix. Definitely must eat right away-- not very good as left overs because the rice seems to get mushy after a day. Will make again.

Asparagus, Orange and Endive Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2005
Good salad. I added some raspberry vinegarette to cut down on the tanginess. Great with some feta cheese on top.

Pork and Corn Stuffing Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
This is really good. I used cream of chicken, but would probably be good with cream of mushroom, too. Next time I would saute the onions to give them a milder taste-- the onion was really strong in the stuffing. I didn't add corn because I didn't have any. I would definitely make this again. The sauce on the chops is delicious!

Mushrooms and Peas Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
YUM! It came out great. I sauteed and added onion and garlic. I also used canned mushrooms and saved the juice to add a bit at the end to make the rice more creamy. Good flavor!

Spiced Nuts II

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2007
These are very good. I would cut back a bit on the cooking time, they tasted like the sugar burned slightly. I added dried cranberries instead of raisins.

Pepper Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2005
Too sour! The peppers shrunk down and became mushy and the lemon juice dressing was almost too sour to eat. Might be good with a different dressing, maybe italian or balsamic vinegarette.

Italian-Style Spaghetti Squash

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
This recipe was really good. We've never had or made spaghetti squash before and my husband was really leary (due to a traumatic squash incident when he was young). I combined this recipe with the Spicy Spaghetti Squash recipe from this site. I cooked the squash in the microwave for about 16 minutes and halfway thru flipped over the halves and put a tbsp of butter into each half with some garlic power and some salt and pepper. I ommitted the capers and made the sauce using 2 cans of diced tomatoes, red wine, onions, green peppers and zuchinni. Next time I will drain one can of tomatoes before I add it-- the sauce was slightly watery. The squash itself doesn't have much flavor-- it is slightly sweet so adding some red pepper to the sauce and salt and pepper was definitely a hit with my husband. He really liked it and said I should make it when his parents come to visit!

Roasted Nuts

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
These are good. I didn't add the whole packet of ranch dressing because I thought it would be too salty...it wasn't. Next time I'll add the whole packet. Good flavor! UPDATE: They taste really good if you save a bit of the ranch powder and mix the nuts into it after they've cooked. It punches up the ranch flavor. I also cut back on the maple syrup.

Stromboli

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2008
Great. I omitted the sauce and served it on the side as a dipping sauce. A suggestion from a friend was to add a little yellow mustard to the dough before laying everything else on. Surprisingly the mustard gives it a good taste.

Peking Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2005
Amazing! My husband loved it so much that he even suggested I make this dish when his mother comes to visit! I used only about 1/4 cup soy sauce so it wouldn't be too salty and cooked it in the oven for 40 minutes at 350 degrees. I served the chops on a bed of brown rice with a salad. Delicious!

Orange Roughy Bundles

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Very good! I didn't have zuchinni, so I used shallots and red pepper on top. I also grilled it a bit longer than the instructions say. It was very good....light flavor. So easy to make and clean up. Great summer dish!

Seasoned Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2005
Instead of soy sauce I used Worcestershire and only half of the onion soup that was called for. They came out really good!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2006
Very good. The only thing I changed was adding 2 cans of chicken broth instead of water. I threw the chicken breasts in frozen. It was perfectly done when I came home from work. Very tasty-- I will definitely make again.

Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2008
Delicious. Next time I will omit the pine nuts...personally don't like how they taste with the pasta. Otherwise I wouldn't change a thing. Very good and east to make!
