Pesto Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I am only rating this because I can't keep track of what I make and try and don't make. In all fairness to the recipe, I didn't have the shrimp, tomatoes, or mushrooms. So that would have probably made the recipe better.

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
All of my family really liked this pasta dish - including my seven and 14 year old. I used whole grain pasta. I also baked the bacon and didn't use any bacon fat to cut some of the fat out of the recipe. I just used olive oil as called for, and it was fine. When I served the pasta, I put out some goat cheese, gorganzola and parmesan cheese. Everyone put a small spoonful of one or more cheeses on their pasta bowl. It was delicious. Thanks for the recipe.

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
I really enjoyed this recipe - easy to make. My husband and I really liked it a lot (the kids thought it was o.k.- they don't care for round steak for some reason).

Broccoli and Sausage Cavatelli

I've made this twice now. I really enjoy this dish. I added some sauteed onion and grape tomatoes the second time. I only use half of the red pepper flakes called for.

Teriyaki Flank Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
Wow! I didn't have fresh ginger so I used ground ginger (about a teaspoon because I didn't wan't too overwhelming of a ginger flavor). I sliced a cheaper cut of meat (london broil on sale!!) and let it marinade all day (included a sliced up onion with the meat) and then broiled it for dinner. Everyone, kids included, loved this recipe. Thank you!

Easy Grilled Tri Tip

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I doubled the sauce - let marinatye for a few hours. Didn't have time to slice, or access to grill. So baked in the oven on low (325 degrees) and then finished off under the broiler. Sliced and servved. My family really enjoyed! Do not overcook the meat if using this method (Sorry - I can't remember exact baking times).

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
These cookies held their shape beautifully! I have always made a Betty Crocker sugar cookie recipe that adds cream of tarter, powdered sugar, and almond extract. I foun these easier to make (didn't need to grease the cookie sheet), and delicious as well. I also turned the oven down as noted by another reviewer - about 385 degrees for 6 to 7 minutes. I also made my frosting a little thicker (using milk, powdered sugar, melted butter and vanilla).Used heart shape cookie cutters and pink frosting - great for Valentine's Day. will use this recipe again!

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I tweaked this recipe a bit to make it healthier. My family enjoyed it a lot. I used whole wheat flour in place of white flour; instead of 1/2 cup butter (which is 8 tblsps.), I used 6 tblsps. butter and 1/4 cup applesauce added to the flour and brown sugar and oats. I also cut back to about 1/4 cup the white sugar. I baked for the first 30 minutes with a lightly covered piece of foil on top, and then removed the foil and continued baking until done. Thank you for basic recipe - very easy to make. I'm sure it's delicious as is, we are just trying to mkae every dish slightly healthier by making some simple changes to them. I reduced the overall fat, calorie and sugar content buy just a bit - but every little bit adds up!

Whole-Wheat Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
We all really enjoyed these. I tweaked the recipe a bit: I only had regular whole wheat flour, so used that in place of the whole wheat pastry flour. Instead of 3/4 cup margarine, I used a 3/4 cup measurind cup and added half melted butter and half applesauce to make 3/4 cup. I added the two cups of chocolate chips, but next time will add a little less. And lastly, I baked as cookie bars in a jelly roll pan. 375 degrees sounded too high, so I baked at 325 degress for about 20 -25 minutes (don't overbrown!) Thanks for the recipe - I feel like it was a more wholesome treat for my family.

Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
I made the wontons from scratch. It was so easy and everyone was really impressed! My whole family (including the kids) loved this soup. Thank you for the great recipe! (I did use extra stock for extra broth, and added some finely diced carrot and red bell pepper for color and a vegetable boost.)

Lemon Icebox Pie III

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
This was simple and easy and yummy. I tried to lighten it up by using a reduced fat graham cracker crust, lo-fat cream cheese, and non fat sweetened condensed milk mixed with regular sweetened condensed milk (I had doubled the recipe and made two pies - one for the neighbors). My family loved it.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I thought this recipe was a little time consuming - having to pre-ccok the chicken and the rice. I like the type of casserole where you put it all together in the oven and let it bake. Also, I just thought the casserole was o.k. tasting - not really too flavorful. My children really didn't like it so I will look for another recipe. Thank you anyway.

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I added extra chopped green pepper and some red pepper. After browning the meat with the vegetables, I threw it all in the crock pot. I agree with other posters - 46 oz. tomatoe juice seemed like way too much, so I only addded about 20 oz. Turned out very nice in the crock pot.

Butternut Squash Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
I loved this soup, although my family didn't eat it! But that's o.k. - I've been having it for lunch woth croutons on top. I used a homemade chicken stock I had in the freezer in place of the water. Also, I only used about 1/2 brick of cream cheese. (i know the recipe called for two - I thought it had only called for one and saw other comments about using less cream cheese. I will mkae again.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2008
Really enjoyed. I didn't have enough feta, so added some shredded Italian cheese mix. Also, drizzled a bit of olive oil, salt, pepper & oregano over chicken breasts. Be sure not to overcook!! Will make again - easy to modify any way you like. will try some of the other suggestions.
