Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2004
This recipe was divine! I took others' suggestions by adding salt and garlic. The color turned out just fine. Thanks for the great recipe!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2007
These muffins turned out perfect! I made sure my cream cheese mixture was stiff and I made a well in each muffin for the cream cheese so that it could not run to the sides. I used grape seed oil instead of olive oil and I omitted the pecans. I also lightly pressed the streusel topping into the muffin. My muffins looked so beautiful and tasted fabulous! I got several requests for the recipe!

Black Bean and Rice Enchiladas

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2007
I loved these! I added Monterey Jack cheese. I also added sliced olives on top along with the cilantro just for garnish. I used enchilada sauce instead of salsa and I left out the red pepper flakes. I used black beans I cooked myself instead of canned, and I used Mexican style diced tomatoes. I can't wait to serve these to company. Thanks for a great recipe!

Turkey Tetrazzini II

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2007
Sorry, I thought it was bland. I had to add two teaspoons worchestershire sauce and 1/4 teaspoon white pepper. With the additions I liked it, but next time I would add more things like sauteed mushrooms or something.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Slow-Cooked Sweet 'n' Sour Pork

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!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
