Sweet Pork Enchiladas

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
I made this just as written in the recipe. It was just too sweet for us. If I were to try it again, I would use 1/8 cup brown sugar. Or, I would scrap the tortilla and put the rest of the ingredients over lettuce for a nice salad.

Cheese Soup with Broccoli

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
I made this soup exactly as written except I used real cheddar cheese instead of velveeta. I used 1 tsp salt. I loved this soup! It does NOT have the thick consistency of a chowder. If you want that, I would suggest adding more butter and flour at the beginning, but we liked it thin. It had great flavor. Next time I will add a bit more broccoli, but it was great the way it was. Do NOT use "already grated" cheddar...the coating they put on grated cheeses will make it grainy and weird. Also, do not simmer or boil after you put in the cheese.

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
I followed exact baking instructions...275 for 1 hour, then freeze. I did have to bake about 10 minutes longer. I omitted the lemon juice. The cake turned out amazing. I have made several banana cakes before, but this one is the best I have made. I cannot imagine a better banana cake. Our personal preference is to serve with a big dollop of whipped cream instead of the frosting.

Black Bean Soup with Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2012
I thought it was okay. I think the seasonings could use some tweaking. The cumin was a bit overwhelming.

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2012
I thought these were great. I used half whole wheat pastry flour and I used half "pear" sauce (same as applesauce except I made it from pears) and half oil. Next time I will try to use even more of the whole wheat and more of the apple/pear sauce to see if I can't get it healthier. Definately a keeper for me!

Barbeque Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
I thought it was okay...not fantastic, but not bad. I made the recipe as written, except I used Halibut fillets instead of steaks.

Heavenly Halibut

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
This was Divine! I made it as stated except I followed the advice to bake the Halibut at 375 for 15 minutes before putting on the sauce and putting it under the broiler. I also drained the liquid (fish drippings) from the pan before putting on the sauce. Since some of the sauce drips off the fish while under the broiler, I served it already dished up on the plates and drizzled some sauce over the fish. Heavenly!!! I don't like spicy so I was questioning the hot pepper sauce, but I added it anyway and it was not spicy, yet still full of flavor!

Fudgy Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
I made these brownies exactly as written, except I omitted the nuts because my daughter is allergic. They are fudgy and would be very good with nuts. I thought they were very good as written and will make again. They are VERY sweet. I will experiment just for fun next time by adding more chocolate and a tad less sugar. See what happens. Maybe put nuts in half the pan. However, they did take 40 minutes to bake.

Spiced Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
Mine turned out great. I would add nuts (personal preference) if anyone else in my family would eat them. I made mine using half whole wheat pastry flour.

Sirloin Steak with Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
I made this just as the recipe is written, except I grilled it in a grill pan on the stove instead of a BBQ outstide. I just didn't really like it...I love butter and garlic, but this didn't work for me. I will save the butter and garlic for shrimp or crab.

Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
As other reviewers have said, I too, do NOT like swiss cheese. I used it anyway and thought it turned out great! I used chicken broth instead of vegetable broth because that is what I had on hand. I changed the method by making a roux...melt the butter in a pot, whisk in the flour, add the milk and stir over heat until thick. Add the cheese to the milk mixture. Then I added the milk mixture to the potato mixture. It was great!

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
I thought this recipe was good, just not "the best". My family liked it. I did add Panko like another reviewer suggested. I will make it again using a bit less lemon juice, more panko, and a bit of garlic salt.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
I loved this. I used frozen stir fry veggies and added cashews and water chestnuts. I served over brown rice. I did not "toss to coat" the chicken, but instead, I added cornstarch, soy sauce, ginger, and garlic powder to chicken broth and simmered for a few minutes. Then I poured the sauce over the sauteed chicken and veggies. It turned out great and was much simpler and less mess.

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
I loved these muffins! I'm sure the full amount of sugar would have been great, but I'm trying to cut back, so I only used 1/2 cup sugar and they were still great! I used 1/4 cup grapeseed oil and 1/4 cup applesauce in place of the vegetable oil, and I used whole wheat pastry flour. My kids and husband also loved these muffins.

Split Pea Soup with Rosemary

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2008
This was outstanding split pea soup! It was also easy! I did not add the leek. I used ham istead of bacon, and I used dried rosemary instead of fresh. I did not cook the veggies before. I just threw everything in a big pot all at once and let it all simmer for an hour or more. I loved it.

Caramel Filled Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
I used regular caramels. They were great right out of the oven, but after they cooled, the caramels were too hard (although the cookie still tasted great). So next time I will try Rolo's. I also can't wait to try York Peppermint patties.
