Chicken Chow Mein

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
Really good, will definately make it again. What's great about recipes like this is that you can really throw whatever you have on hand in them. It was quick and healthy, all in the prep work, which makes a great weeknight meal. My own changes: I cooked the chicken in 2 minced garlic cloves and olive oil, used 1 can sliced water chestnuts, 2 cloves pressed garlic instead of garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. ginger, 1/2 cup sugar snap peas & 1/2 cup bean sprouts instead of green beans, 2 1/2 tbs of cornstarch and 2 1/2 tbs soy sauce.

Quick Artichoke Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 13, 2007
It was nice to have a pasta salad that was a little different. I didn't have marinated artichokes so I drained them and added 1 Tbs red wine vinegar, 2 Tbs olive oil and 3 Tbs balsamic vinaigrette. Also added diced sweet onion and toasted pine nuts like another reviewer suggested and lots of chopped fresh basil and cilantro in addition to the dried oregano. Turned out great and can't wait to eat the leftovers

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: May 13, 2007
I made this for Mother's Day and we all loved it. I only used half of the brown sugar and it still turned out great. Thanks for sharing!

Mango Papaya Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2007
The fresh flavors make this a perfect accompaniment to a lot of foods. I happened to have beef chuck steaks on hand which I grilled. I topped it with more than a generous portion of the salsa. I still have some left over that I think I'll try on fish tomorrow. I did add the juice of 1 small lemon and 1 lime and 1/2 jalapeƱo pepper minced at the advise of another reviewer which I think added just the right bit of kick. I'm going to try this in beef fajitas too. Great, thanks for sharing!

Christmas Wreaths

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
I remember mother used to make them when I was a kid. We always loved them and they add a lot of color to a cookie plate. I recommend to butter your hands when forming the wreaths and lay on a greased sheet of waxed paper until they have had a chance to set and cool. Also, they are easy to form into wreaths but you need to hurry. If they have a chance to cool they will be impossible. The best way I have found is to spoon a glob onto the waxed paper and use your fingers form a wreath by pulling from the middle out, kind of hard to explain.

Strawberry and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
Absolutely fantastic! Loved the surprising combo of flavors. Decided it was too much dressing for just this salad so put in a carafe and let everyone drizzle over to suit their tastes but the dressing is good on its own and will use on my salads throughout the week.

Sour Cream Roast

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
I liked this recipe but looking at the previous reveiws changed the gravy a bit. 2 Tablespoons Cornstarch and 2 Tablespoons cold water mixed together. Then 1 Cup meat juices (including onion it was cooked in)and 1 cup plain yogurt instead of whipping cream. I suppose you could use sour cream or half sour cream & half whipping cream. I added salt and pepper to this. It was good but it's an acquired taste so if you don't like vinegar all that well stay away from this recipe. I served it with potato pancakes and sweet and sour cabbage.
