Edamame-Stuffed Wontons

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I made these for New Years Eve (adding twice the amount of garlic). Prepared the edamame mixture the day before and let it sit in the refrigerator so the flavors could "mingle". They were GREAT! A huge success with everyone. Even my husband who isn't a fan of edamame. Served the wontons with Chinese mustard, Hoisin and Ken's Asian Sesame dressing as dipping sauces. I'll definitely make these again.

Cinnamon Noodle Kugel

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2012
We were invited to a dear friend's house for Christmas dinner this year. I made and brought this kugel as a side dish. It was a HUGE hit! So delicious. I did change some things though. I used a 16 oz bag of wide noodles. Used the lower fat versions of milk, cottage cheese, sour cream and cream cheese. Plus instead of sugar, I used Splenda. No one could tell the difference. I'll definitely be making this again.

Chicken Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
I made and served this today. However, I substituted the chicken with turkey breast and the quick cook barley (because I couldn't find any) with Kasmati rice. Plus I added a bit more garlic and used the lower salt variety of chicken broth. It was DELICIOUS and filling!! And since I made enough for at least 3 more meals, my hubby and I will be able to enjoy the soup again within the week.

Healthier Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
I made this for the first time tonight, for dinner. I used Swai instead of the tilapia (only because it was a little less expensive). My husband, who is not a fan of parmesan (or similar cheeses) LOVED this dish. Thanks for a great recipe. I'll definitely be making this again.

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2012
This is SO good! It's even better the next day. The only thing I changed was to add the curry to the water before boiling. It really infused the flavor of the curry. I'm sure I'll be making this again.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
This was GREAT!! Very tasty and healthy. And so easy to make. The first time I made it was for a New Years Eve get together my husband and I were hosting at our house. It served as one of the main dishes. The second time I made it and took it to a friend's house for dinner. This time I served it as an appetizer, with Tostito's Multi Grain scoops. It was a HUGE success both times. I'll definitely be making this again.

Yummy Jewish Apple Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2011
I made this for a Holiday Luncheon. It was a HUGE success. However, I did tweak it a bit. Instead of using 3 cups all purpose flour, I used 1.5 cups of all purpose flour and 1.5 cup of whole wheat flour. I also used 1 cup sugar and 1 cup of Splenda. I combined the cinnamon with 5 tbsp (yes Tablespoons) of Splenda Brown sugar blend and mixed it thru the sliced apples (I used 5 apples), setting them aside while I mixed the rest of the ingredients.

Easy Meatloaf

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
This was outstanding!!! And as the title indicates, very easy to make. My husband, who is not a fan of mustard, even liked this. Generally when he likes something a lot, he will say it's "not bad", but he actually said this was "really good!" Very high praise. :-) The sauce gives the meatloaf a nice sweet/tangy flavor. I only used half an onion and used italian flavored breadcrumbs. I'll definitely be making this meatloaf again.

Lemony Quinoa

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
I doubled the recipe so that I could take some to a BBQ and have some for home as well. I substituted the pine nuts with chopped almonds and added 5 thinly sliced baby carrots and half a yellow pepper. At first, after I made it, I felt like it was missing "something". I had my son taste test it and he agreed there was "something" missing. So I added a little more cumin and cayenne pepper (maybe about another 1/4 teaspoon of each) Plus I added about 1/2 teaspoon of dried oregano. After I mixed everything in, I let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours before serving. It was DELICIOUS (and very colorful). A huge hit at the BBQ.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I made this for the first time tonight for my husband and our two dinner guests. It was a HUGE hit. So tasty and easy to make. I made a double batch and have just enough left over for me to have for breakfast in the morning. I'll definitely be making this side dish again.

Chicken a la Good

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
This was a huge success in my house. I don't particularly enjoy cooking so I try to find easy recipes that sound tasty to me. Originally my husband and son thought I bought it already prepared and nearly fell off their chairs when I told them I made it from scratch. This was really delicious. I'll definitely keep this one in my recipe file to make again.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
These were great! The only ingredient I changed was the sugar, using Splenda instead. I brought them to our friend's house for Thanksgiving dinner. Some people ate them alone, others used them as a topping for ice cream. The pecans were a huge success and so easy to make, that I'll definitely make them again.

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2006
These were delicious. I don't know if it took longer to "soften up" the carrots because I doubled the recipe (it took about 30 minutes), but it really doesn't matter, because they were a huge success at our Thanksgiving dinner. I'll definitely make them again.

Slow Cooker Barbeque

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2006
I served this a few nights ago at a family/friend get together and although I also served a really yummy chicken dish and delicious baked salmon, the beef got the biggest compliments. Without a doubt, I'll be making this again.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2006
I made this salsa for a party my husband and I attended last night. Although it doesn't call for placing all the fruit in a processor, that's what I did (chopped just enough to make the fruit pieces a little more manageable to scoop up with the chips). Everyone raved! And the cinnamon chips were good enough to eat by themselves. This recipe was a huge success and I'll definitely make it again. :-)

Pecan Dijon Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
I made this tonight for dinner. I was bit concerned because my husband is not generally a fan of mustard, but the mix of the orange juice, honey and mustard was perfect. It was a big success and so easy to prepare that I'm sure I'll be making it again.

Chocolate Cherry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
This was really good. I only had 1 cup of white flour left so I used that plus 1.25 cups of whole wheat flour. And instead of making it in a 9 x 13 pan, I used two round 9" pans. In between the layers I put Cool Whip Lite. And served with more of the cool whip. The result was that it looked really pretty and it tasted very similar to a Tastykake chocolate creamie.

Grandma's Brisket

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2006
This was FANTASTIC!!! And so easy to prepare. I made it last night for Passover (doubled the recipe because there were 9 of us) and everyone loved it. Instead of cutting up large carrots, I simply added about 2 dozen baby carrots. My 24 year old godson who loves to cook, enjoyed the brisket so much, I sent him home with a copy of the recipe. :-)
