Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
I am not the biggest fish fan, but wanted to give this a try...it was excellent! Made this recipe exactly as written & my boyfriend, his friend & I commented that the flavors were great. Since I am not huge into fish I really, really cannot wait to try this with chicken. This recipe earned all 5 of it's stars for not only taste, but also ease & the fact that dinner was on the table in less than 30 minutes. :)

Bagel and Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I agree with other users that this is a good casserole, but a little on the bland side. After working with the recipe, I think I have found what works best for us: * use 14 eggs * instead of using white onions, use green onions * beat a softened package of cream cheese until smooth, then add in the green onions & keep beating until well blended, then proceed to add in the egg mixture * use 2 cups of cheese & a whole lb of bacon. Not exactly healthy, but it is very tasty...

Banana Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
This is a great coffee cake!!! I made this for an Easter brunch & it was extremely popular. I was sure to beat the cream cheese until very, very smooth so that there were no lumps & this helped produce a very light & moist cake. I added in 3 ripe bananas; the taste was sooo good and stood out well (which is what I was hoping for). Will for sure make again...

Mini Mushroom and Goat Cheese Tarts

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
YYYEEESS! These were soooooooooo good! I made these exactly as written, except that I forgot to poke holes in the puff pastry before cooking (and therefore the little buggers really didn't want to stay down after I flattened them)but that didn't affect the taste or anything. Made these to go with the Rosemary Chicken Kabobs for dinner tonight & between my dad & I they were long gone (the tarts that is, they were even more popular than the chicken). LOVE everything about this recipe...it is sooo easy to make, quick & the tastes combine beautifully. Warning:you will not be able to eat just one!!!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2009
Made the marinade as written (except only used 1/2 the amount of salt), cut 3 large chicken breasts into strips & marinated them for 2 hours. Since it is snowing here (IN APRIL...arrrg), I lined a cookie sheet w/aluminum foil & broiled the strips for about 8 minutes on each side. LOVED the result! My extremely picky father even commented that the taste of the chicken was excellent. Thank you for a great recipe, will FOR SURE make again!

Maple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
This recipe is tasty, but nothing special & cannot compare with the standard sour cream banana bread I usually make. This bread turned out pretty fluffy. The changes I made were as follows: 1) used margarine instead of butter because that is what I had in the house 2) didn't add in maple extract because I didn't have any 3) added 1/4 tsp of salt to the flour mix 4) added 1 tbs brown sugar to the topping to make up for the missing sweetness of the maple extract. Again, I am not saying this is a bad recipe but I have had better banana breads that are much more moist, dense & flavorful.

Very, very tasty! Made mine & ate with pita bread and next time looking forward to making lavosh as recommended. The longer it sits, the better it gets. Thanks Traci B for an excellent recipe!! :)

Peanut Butter Brownie Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
This was good, but didn't knock my socks off like I thought it would. Made the recipe as written except for 2 small changes 1) added 2 more spoonfuls of peanut butter to the mix because after making it as written I didn't think it had enough flavor and 2) didn't toss my bananas in any juice because I didn't have any. Oh, and I only needed to use 2 bananas to thoroughly cover the entire pizza. Took it to a church function & had a few "these are really rich" comments. ** tried it the next day & other than having mushy bananas, it was MUCH better after sitting overnight **

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
OMG, soooo good!!! This cake turned out heavenly & cured the chocolate craving I had been dealing with all week. For the chocolate chips I used 1 cup of regular milk chocolate chips and 1 cup mini semi sweet chips; loved the variation. Other than that, followed the recipe exactly as written. Just dusted powdered sugar over it and was pleased to find that it was a great cake without having to add frosting. I was so pleased with how super simple this recipe was & will for sure make again!

Tangy Potato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
I was so excited to find a more authentic potato salad that didn't use mustard! I omitted the onions & tomatoes and only used 1 tsp of salt; the result was a very tasty dish. For the pickles I used 2 small ones that were homemade, so they were more like dilly cucumbers; tasted sooo good in this dish. The thought of using chicken stock turned me off at first, but it gave the dish a very nice flavor. I would totally recommend this recipe to anyone who loves potatoes & wants to try a different take on the potato salad!

French Dip Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
SO GOOD!!!! Made this using 2 lbs instead of 4 lbs, but still kept the rest of the measurements the same. Followed the recipe exactly except that all I had on hand was fresh thyme, so that is what I used instead. Didn't have 10 hours, so put everything in the slow cooker and cooked on high for 6 hours & the meat was falling apart and super tender. Threw it on some buns with plenty of swiss cheese and popped the sandwiches into the oven at 400 for a few minutes (just enough to melt the cheese).

Baked Basil Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
The taste of the basil mixture was pretty good from what I could gather from out of the taste of burnt potatoes. Followed the recipe to the "T" and the fries stuck so much to sheet and burnt on there, it was so frustrating. Next time I think I might follow the idea of another user and use the premade french fries and just toss them in the basil mixture.

Grandmother Stougaard's Caramel Pecan Sweet Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
These were pretty good! I forgot to add the water to the caramel mixture, but am glad I did. Next time I may add a splash of vanilla to up the flavor of the caramel mixture a bit. Since I didn't have margarine I used butter and had to use an extra tbs to spread onto the dough before rolling. Would have preferred a little more cinnamon flavor, so will be a bit more liberal next time (just a preferance, but I love cinnamon). I used more than 1/2 a cup of pecans and still felt it wasn't close to enough, next time I will probably chop up about a cup instead. All in all, very good "old fashioned" tasting sticky buns; I even got a "these are really good" from my father and THAT is a feat. Thanks for the recipe Grandma S!

Cheddar Ranch Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
This dip was very popular at the bonfire I took it to; made it exactly as the recipe calls for. I thought it was really good, but next time I think I would prefer it if I cooked up some bacon instead of using the premade bacon bits. The dip still tasted good, it is just a personal preference.

Chipotle Honey Roasted Peanuts

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I used a 12 oz can of peanuts, but still kept the measurements the same for the honey/butter mixture. Since I didn't have chipotle seasoning, I made some adjustments there. Added a very liberal 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper,1 and 1/2 tsp chili powder and 1 tsp garlic powder. These were a hit at the bonfire I took them to; the guys especially liked them with their beer. They were tasty with just a little kick of spice at the end.

Out of the Bowl and into a Roll

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
I have made these a few times over the past year and they are a pretty successful party food. Usually, I omit the onion (and sometimes tomato) and once I roll up the tortillas throw them in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes to warm them through and melt the cheese; then slice them into rolls when they come out. My guests prefer to eat them this way.

English Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
These were wonderful! Now, I should start with the fact that I did have a brain fart moment where I accidentally only used 1/4 cup water and could not figure out why after 3 cups of flour it was so stiff, so stopped adding after flour after that. I also didn't have cornmeal, so I used corn muffin mix and it tasted great. My muffins had a hard time on the 2nd rise, so I stuck them on a cookie sheet and threw them in an oven, let it get to 100 degress, turned it off and allowed them to sit in there for an hour. Muffins came out great and I was happy to see that my major mistake didn't ruin the whole batch. Very shocked by how truly easy these were to make...

Frosty Freezer Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Really enjoyed this recipe and it was very popular at the function I took it to. Next time I will make sure to add a few raspberries on top for presentation as well as texture. This recipe is also a great way to do a lower fat dessert by using fat free sorbet, low fat cream cheese and low fat whipped topping. Used raspberry sorbet this time, but cannot wait to play around with the versatility of this recipe and try different flavors!

Garlic Bubble Ring

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
I just wish I would have added MUCH more garlic, as I felt the flavor was seriously lacking. Used the Pillow Soft Roll recipe from this site and baked them in a 9 x 13 pan because I didn't have access to a bundt. Also used fresh grated parmiggano regiano and it was a nice touch.

Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
Had this for dinner last night and it was good, but did make some adjustments. Didn't have cream, so used half and half. Started out melting the 3 tbs of butter and a tbs of cream cheese in skillet and then added in the half and half and let thicken. Chopped up 3 cloves of garlic and added to the mix along with the nutmeg, ground black pepper, a pinch of white pepper and a few drops of lemon juice. For the cheese I just added 3/4 cup of a shredded mix of asiago, provolone, parmesan and mozzarella. Next I added in the egg yolk and let it simmer. To achieve a less thick sauce I added a tsp of the noodle water and also the rest of the leftover stick of butter from the 3 tbs I had used. This created a decadent sauce that worked very well over the noodles and had such nice flavor. Topped with fresh parsley and fresh grated parmiggano reggiano.
