Cucumber Raita

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2008
Great. We actually made it with regular yogurt (low fat), used the vegetable peeler for the cucumber, used dried mint (1/3 the amount), and did not let it sit (just ate it right away). It was close enough to Indian restaurant raita to satisfy us. Thanks!

Light Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
Made the adjustments others made - 1 tsp vanilla, 1 egg instead of egg substitute, all white flour instead of wheat. I doubled the topping and made this in a bundt pan (baked for a total of 40 minutes). The kids loved it.

Chewiest Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
My 5-year-old basically made these with my direction while I held the baby (they are REALLY easy to make). We loved them -- delicious! Very chewy (like we like them). I'm not sure why others found them grainy -- ours turned out perfect.

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
I thought this soup was way to salty, and I followed the recipe exactly. I'm not sure what the problem was -- next time I'll leave out the added salt! It seems to have potential, though, so I'll make it again!

Easy Indian Style Okra

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
I had never had okra before in my life but thought I'd try a new vegetable and this looked like a tasty way to prepare it. It was good -- though my kids wouldn't eat it. I would make it again -- easy to prepare.

Parsnip Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2008
These were a hit - everyone liked them a lot. We ate them with sour cream, like regular potato latkes. Made these again and this time used two parsnips and 1 sweet potato and then were even tastier. Everyone liked them.

Banana Pancakes II

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
I was home on Sunday morning with 3 kids and husband was at work. We had fresh blueberries on hand but no eggs and wanted to make blueberry pancakes. We found these. I didn't have any buttermilk, either, so mixed 1 cup of milk with a tablespoon of lemon juice. They worked well and gave us the blueberry pancakes we wanted! Thanks (They didn't taste like "health food" to use at all, unlike what others have said)

Chickpea Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
My kids loved this. They tend not to like salads like this with vinegar-based dressings, so this was perfect. I used kalamata olives, high quality feta, and fresh tomatoes from the farmers market. Granted, each kid picked out only the components they liked and ate those, but I was lucky they both liked different parts of it and it all got eaten!

Emily's Famous Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2008
My husband and two kids really liked this and we don't often have sloppy joes. I was trying to use up some leftover ingredients and this solved my problem -- I made substitutions -- I used 1/2 can of diced tomatoes and 1/4 cup catsup, rice vinegar instead of distilled white vinegar, and 1 and 1/2 roasted red peppers (from a jar) instead of the fresh red pepper. I also used 11b instead of 1.5 lbs of ground beef. I simmered it for a good 1/2 hour until it wasn't runny and the flavors came together really nicely. We really liked this recipe, though I think the version I made was probably a little heavier on the vegetables, lighter on the meat. It was great.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2008
Excellent! We loved it. I actually used marinated mushrooms because that was all I had on hand, which I'm sure changed the flavor, obviously -- a nice twist.

Grilled Chicken with Herbs

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
I used expensive, very high quality balsamic vinegar. This was okay, but not great - I thought it could have been more flavorful.

Always A Winner Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: May 6, 2008
My whole family really enjoyed this -- great flavor. I made it exactly as written. I marinated it for 5 hours. I may try marinating it overnight next time and cutting the pieces of chicken a little smaller (mine were large). Great recipe.

Easy Spinach Souffle

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
I took others' advice and doubled the sauce, also using egg whites. It was still very heavy on the spinach and light on the souffle -- but made it healthier, anyway. My 5 year-old helped make it and enjoyed eating it. Husband said he prefers plain spinach.

Adrienne's Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
I left out the dill because I didn't have any -- maybe that made the difference? Just tasted sweet to me-- but my kids (5 and 8y) loved it, probably because it was sweet. Might make it again, just because it was easy and a nice change. My kids will eat cucumbers just as happily plain, though, so not sure the added sugar is worth it.

Cream Cheese Corn

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2008
Kind of funky -- sweetish with a strong cream cheese flavor. I didn't alter at all. My kids (5 and 8y) really liked it -- might make it again for that reason. A nice change from plain corn.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
I made into 4 rounds and cut each round into 4 to 6 triangles and they make plenty (I can't imagine how big they'd be if made in the way described). I didn't find that they spread that much. I didn't have any cream of tartar and so used 1/2 tsp of vinegar and it worked out well. I made one batch plain, one with fresh blueberries, one with fresh blackberries, and one with chocolate chips -- all were great. I put them in the oven for about 11 to 12 minutes and they were just right. Delicious, but very rich! Everyone in the family loved them!

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
I used 1 cup milk and 1/2 cup oil as did others. My five-year-old and I gave these 5 stars. My 8-year old gave them 3 -- she said, "Needs more chocolate and more flavor -- like more sweetness."

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
Made this as directed, but only had half the frozen spinach on hand, so only included this. Also, didn't have any bacon on hand, so wrapped each chicken breast in a slice of prosciutto instead -- I think this probably made it a little less greasy? Anyway, we all loved it and will definitely make it again!

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
This was fine -- I reversed the soy sauce/basalmic ratios as others suggested and I thought it was a bit too sweet (due to the basalmic vinegar flavor). I may try it the other way next time. In the end, I'm just as happy with the asparagus sauteed in some butter with some salt on it.
