Mushroom Chicken Piccata

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2007
My husband and I both thought this was excellent, plus we loved the fact that the sauce wasn't full of butter. I cooked the chicken thoroughly in the pan, removed it, then made the sauce...I didn't simmer them together as I think it would have made the breading very mushy. We can't wait to have it again! *UPDATE: As much as we liked the original recipe, we LOVE this version: Skip the whole chicken process and go straight to cooking the veggies and sauce. After sauce has thickened, toss in a green vegetable (we use broccoli florets, snap peas or asparagus), then a bunch of peeled, raw shrimp. The shrimp only need a few minutes to cook, and this will keep your green veggie from getting mushy. Serve over pasta - YUM!

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
I made these exactly according to the recipe, and while I enjoyed the taste, I found them to be so dry! We had to use so much syrup to enjoy them that I'm pretty sure it cancelled out the healthy benefits of the pancakes! Since we enjoyed the taste, I think I'll try making them again (with a couple of changes to attempt getting a more moist result.) If that doesn't work out, I'll probably try another recipe the next time. **Update: I tried these again replacing the 1/4 c. oil with 1/2 c. applesauce, used 2 eggs and added 1 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. vanilla, and liked them MUCH better - moist and yummy!

Zucchini-Coconut Cookie Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2007
Four stars instead of five for two reasons: These are definitely not "cookie bars"...it's cake. Second, I didn't necessarily care for the dried fruit...it wasn't bad, just not my favorite addition. I'm absolutely making it again, but next time I'm dropping the raisins and dates, baking it in cake pans, and trying it topped with some sort of coconut pecan-type icing. I think that would be out of this world! All in all, if you're a fan of zucchini bread/cake, this is definitely worth trying! (By the way, I made a half batch in a square pan, and 30 minutes was a perfect baking time.)

Kabob Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
Excellent! I've only used chicken, and it's so tasty! If you just marinate the whole chicken breast, it won't totally penetrate the meat. It's better to cut it up...go for the kabobs! Sometimes I use just a tad less soy sauce...if you have very small pieces of meat, they will tend to taste too salty.

Walnut Apple Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2008
I couldn't decide whether to give this cake 3 or 4 stars, but my issues were just personal preferences so I went with 4! It made a nice looking cake, but I was hoping for a more moist cake after going to the trouble of shredding the apples. Seems a little dry to me. Also, the amount of nutmeg is a little overpowering - but just my opinion! While I'm glad I tried it, I think I'll try a different recipe next time.

Mom's Turkey Sausage Patties

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
We thought that these were excellent - tasted just like eating regular sausage! My toddler loved them, and I'm thrilled to have another healthy option that she enjoys. I made them just as directed, adding only a touch of canola oil to the pan to fry them. My *only* complaint was that I didn't care for them as much leftover - they got pretty dry. Unless you have a big family (or don't use the whole package of turkey), you'll end up with lots of sausage! I'll definitely be making these again and again, but plan to try freezing them before cooking so that we can have freshly cooked patties anytime. Thanks SO much for this recipe! **Updated: I now shape my raw sausage patties, layer in a freezer container with waxed paper, and freeze until needed. I've thawed them before cooking, or even just fried them from frozen patties. The touch of canola oil in the pan really makes the difference in a great-tasting patty! Now that I can easily have freshly cooked sausage anytime, I love the recipe even more!

Caramelized Apple Rings

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
Extremely easy and quite tasty, but way too sweet for a side dish! If I ever made this again, I would either reduce the brown sugar or serve it as a dessert. I used Granny Smiths, and they worked well.

Antipasto Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2005
Great picnic pasta salad that everyone will like! I would suggest using just a little more dressing or a little less pasta for a good balance. I don't enjoy this left over -- it gets too dry.

Lemon-Raspberry Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
Okay, I'm giving these 3 stars due to the fact that they are super-easy to prepare, and the taste of the muffin part is good. But, I have a few complaints too - mainly with the appearance. The muffins were very flat -- instead of puffing up, they just sort of stayed flat and started running over the edges. This caused not only flat muffins, but muffins with dark brown, crunchy edges! Also, my fresh raspberries seemed to clump together when baking. I folded them in evenly and made sure to get some in each muffin. But, when you cut the muffins open, most look the same - most of the muffin is without raspberries, then another part is a big blob of mushy baked raspberries all together! Perhaps if the raspberries were coated with a little flour before adding them they would stay in place better? Overall, these were very easy, but I probably wouldn't ever make these for guests. I might try with blueberries sometime!

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
While these were pretty good, I just didn't think that the taste was worth the time investment! Maybe I was hoping for too much. I tried to not hold it against the recipe, and still gave 4 stars. If you're really trying to compare them to Krispie Kremes, the donuts themselves are too dense, but the glaze is spot on (as long as you make it thin enough...I added a bit more water.) My main complaint was that I made a half batch of donuts and a full batch of glaze, and STILL ran out of glaze! I did dip both sides of the donuts in the glaze, but I don't think they were that great without it, so I'd definitely double dip again! If you'd like to add sprinkles, do so quickly after glazing or you'll miss your window of opportunity. Lastly, I found that the best donuts were the ones that were the least cooked -- almost just a pale tan color.

Grandmother's Pound Cake I

Reviewed: May 10, 2005
Cake had a good taste (very dense and moist) and had a great consistency for decorating. As it cooled, the tops flattened a little making the layers sit very evenly - I made a double layer round cake. My only complaint is that the edges were quite crispy and tough. I used high quality baking pans and was careful not to overbake the layers. Maybe the temperature was a little too high? Next time I'll try baking at a lower temp. There will be a next time!

Basic Vegetable Stock

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
This saved the day when I was preparing the brine for our Thanksgiving turkey this year! I needed a gallon of vegetable broth -- who wants to buy that?! Plus, I'm sure the taste of this will far exceed the canned variety. I didn't actually try the broth by itself, but I'm giving it four stars for being just what I needed, straight-forward, and and saving us money. My husband was there when I strained it, and jumped out of his chair when I went to throw out the vegetables. He liked them so much he nearly made himself sick trying to eat them all!

Pumpkin Roll II

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Turned out well, easy to handle, a good basic pumpkin roll! I found that I needed to add more confectioners sugar to the filling to suit my taste. Thanks.

Carrot-Sweet Potato Mash

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
I've made this twice. The first time, I was very pleasantly sursprised because I really loved it. But the second time, it had such a bad taste that I had to throw it away! I think that I may have let the butter/sugar cook to long and it possibly scorched a bit. At least I'm hoping so, because I really did enjoy the recipe so much the first time around! I'll definitely give it another shot...and be careful with the sugar this time! This is a great way to get kids (and adults!) to eat their vegetables!

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic

I grew up with this recipe, and have even tried sweet potatoes with marshmallows. SO yummy, a wonderful addition to any fall table - or any season for that matter!

Frosted Cinnamon Zucchini Bars

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2007
I loved this recipe, and gave it four stars only because I changed a couple of things. I skipped the icing, added a bit of cinnamon to the cake, and topped it with a caramel icing glaze. Next time, I'm going to try making round layer cakes and frosting with a whipped caramel icing...should be excellent! Makes a nice, moist cake. Thanks so much for the great recipe!

Oriental Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2007
My husband loved these, while I just thought they were good. I think that I might need to allow them to marinate a little longer to really get the flavor in there (they sat for about 5 hours). The flavor was good, I just wanted to taste it a little more in the meat. I'll try again, maybe marinating overnight next time!

Diane's Colcannon

YUM! My husband's not a fan of cabbage, but was happy to eat this...plus seconds...and thirds! I had never even heard of this dish before, but I'm so happy that I tried it!

Tomato Florentine Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2006
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this soup! On top of that, it's so healthy...you can't lose. Perfect paired with a green salad. **The first time I made it, I thought it was a little bland. From then on, I added 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper, and it helps SO much! I use acini de pepe pasta, and it works so well. We will make this for years to come!!
