Touch of Spring Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2012
Loved these! The taste and texture is similar to a scone, which I prefer - as another reviewer said, this is NOT cake disguised as a muffin. I made two very slight changes: I used whole wheat white flour and upped the strawberries (finely chopped) to about 2/3 cup. These were easy to make, delicious without being too sweet and dessert-like, and you should make them right now.

Hearty Harvest and Ham Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
Excellent stew, very filling and flavorful. I was worried that it would be bland and considered adding chicken broth, but it wasn't needed. The spices were perfect. I used half potatoes and half sweet potatoes, and added a can of white cannellini beans. I also used white onions and bok choy instead of cabbage. Next time I will double the recipe as it only made enough for one meal for my family. I served it with sourdough bread and parmesan cheese.

Strawberry Cobbler I

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
I wasn't too happy with this. It was tasty but extremely soupy. I may try to make it once more and will either cut back on the liquid or add cornstarch. The topping is sparse as written, as well. I would double it next time.

Zucchini Risotto

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Great recipe. I used one carton of veggie broth and one carton of chicken broth. I didn't have any sun-dried tomatoes, so I chopped up a red pepper and threw those in with the onions. Went heavy on the basil and also threw in some roasted chicken breast that I had left over. I could eat this all day. Does take a lot of stirring, but on medium heat, I was able to walk away for a few minutes at a time and did not experience any burning at the bottom of the pan. I can see why the zucchini had to be thinly sliced because it only went in at the end. The thinness helped it cook fast, but if you want to rough chop it, throw it in a little earlier on.

Broccoli, Rice, Cheese, and Chicken Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2010
I like this recipe because the ingredients are usually on hand and it is an easy, quick dinner to make in a pinch. Like other reviewers, I prefer to use a shredded rotisserie chicken and dry onion soup mix in place of the canned chicken and onion (although I have used canned chicken when necessary and it's fine). I use whatever creamed soups I have and I also add a generous amount of curry. I find that this adds flavor to an otherwise bland dish, but still maintains the "comfort food" factor.

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
Excellent recipe that I will be sure to make again! Like everyone, I made changes that appealed to me: I omitted the onions from the mashed potatoes and added fresh parsley and minced garlic, as well as the butter and some skim milk until it reached my desired texture. I used ground lamb instead of beef and omitted the ketchup, using 1/4 cupf of Worchestershire sauce and thyme. Next time I will add the Worchestershire after it's cooked and drained for added flavor, although it still had flavor. Instead of boiling and mashing carrots, I just poured frozen mixed vegetables (carrots, green beans, peas and corn - straight from the freezer) on top of the meat mixture and then topped that with the mashed potatoes and cheese. Next time I may do a layer of fresh mushrooms as well. This was a great, hearty meal that was good on the second and third day as well!

Baseball Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
I made this twice with different results. The first time, I followed the recipe exactly. The oatmeal crust was brick-hard and the chocolate kept separating from the crust when I was trying to chisel it out of the pan. On the 2nd attempt, I made several changes: I halved the recipe and put it in an 8x8 pan. I turned the oven down to 350 and only baked the oatmeal crust for 5 minutes. I also used 3 parts chocolate chips and 1 part butterscotch chips because I thought it was too sweet with the 50/50 mix. Lastly, I used Crisco to grease the pan instead of baking spray. The 2nd batch was much improved over the first!

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
These eggs were a big hit - fluffy and tasty. They did take about 5 minutes longer to bake than the recipe states. I added the cheese on half of the eggs and that turned out great. One big note: the eggs were WAY too salty! I would recommend cutting the salt in half when making this. Otherwise, great!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2006
A huge hit at parties! Even people who don't normally like guacamole love it. Make a double batch because it will go fast!

Tiramisu Layer Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2006
I made this cake for Easter dessert and it was a huge hit! I was accused of buying a cake and passing it off as my own. :) It is very light and yet moist. Next time I may slightly increase the amount of the coffee/liqueur mix for added moisture. Also, I refrigerated the cake for about 30 hours and I think this gave the flavors time to blend. It was nearly perfect! Beautiful presentation, too. Enjoy!

Maria's Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2004
This recipe has been a hit with my family and friends! I have passed it on to a lot of people and they all rave about it! Set aside half of the spinach/cheese mixture and freeze it for the next time -- it's way too much as written!
