Elsye's Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
This was okay. Maybe it would have been better had I not substituted more chocolate syrup for the cup of sugar. The texture was less brownie-like and more fluffy, but not cake-like. And b/c of the substitution, it wasn't too sweet, which I did like. A good complement to ice cream or something else.

Ground Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
This was pretty good, but I made some adjustments based on what I had in the fridge. I used plain nonfat yogurt in place of the sour cream, omitted the mushrooms, added some chopped swiss chard, and used chicken broth instead of beef. I served it over spaghetti. Very stroganoff-ish, but with more flavor in my opinion.

Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
This was okay. I've never cooked a pork loin until now and I didn't cook it long enough. Next time I'll remember. I didn't make the potatoes.

Bacon and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2008
This was awesome. Like other reviewers, I added cream/whole milk to make it creamier. I also added some extra veggies like broccoli and it was very hearty. Thanks for the recipe!

Pumpkin Flax Quickbread

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
This was so yummy! I recently gave up dairy. I used real pumpkin (verses canned) and it was so tasty! I forgot to add the spices in the batter until I'd already poured it in the pan so I just sprinkled some cinnamon on top and it was perfect.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2008
This was awesome! I didn't batter the fish, just fried it a bit in olive oil. I also added tomatoes and used high-fiber wheat tortillas. My husband praised it too!

Greek Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
I made this tonight and it was so good! I added cooked chicken, left out the artichoke juice and for spices only used salt, pepper, parsley and oregano. Yummy yummy. I will make this again! It would be good (maybe w/o the orzo) wrapped up in a tortilla.

No Bake Bumpy Peanut Butter Nuggets

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
Yummers, these were easy and good! I used milk b/c I didn't have dry milk, and used honey instead of apple juice concentrate. My husband and kids loved them too.

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
This was so good, and so easy. I've made it at least 5 times in the last month, a few times for dinner, a brunch, to a potluck, and for a friend after having surgery. Each time I've used the ingredients I've had on hand and it's been delicious. My favorite so far is bacon and parmesan crust, with broccoli, onion and pureed green beans (originally intended for my baby) and parm on the top. Yum!

Corn Flake Cookies II

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
These cookies were so good! They had a great taste and a good texture. My husband is pretty picky with cookie texture and this cookie had a nice combo of chewy and crispy. Thanks!

Cheddar Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
This was very good and relatively easy. I didn't use the rice cereal and used fresh breadcrumbs. I also added shredded romano cheese to the cheese/crumb mixture.

Italian Wedding Soup I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
This was very good, even my 3 y.o. ate it! I used fresh breadcrumbs and added some oregano and basil to the meatballs. I also substituted collard greens for the escarole b/c I couldn't find it in the store.

Lentil Soup III

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Good, basic recipe. To make it gluten free (for a friend) I used water instead of broth, added celery, and more spices. I also added about a cup of dry brown rice. To make it husband-friendly, I then added cooked chicken and a package of taco seasoning. Okay tasting, but very healthy!

Easiest, Amazing Guacamole

Shrimp Etoufee III

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
This was very good. I made some changes though. I made it for 4 instead of 10 servings. Used a can of diced chiles instead of green pepper, added a can of black beans, and used beef broth (it's what I had) instead of water. It had chowder-y taste but was less creamy. Overall very good, I would make it again and would add some rice

Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
This was a great recipe, I modified it for what I had. I combined the sauce in a saucepan and boiled it (used brown sugar instead of white) for about 5 minutes, then added chopped cooked chicken breast and stirred it over the heat for about 5 minutes. It gave the chicken the nice teriyaki flavor and the sauce was nice and syrupy. Next time I may use low sodium soy sauce or less of it b/c it was pretty salty. Thanks!

Banana Peanut Butter Bread

Reviewed: May 4, 2007
This was good, but surprisingly dry for having butter, peanut butter and banana. Good taste though and my friends liked it.
