Limeade

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2009
Nod bad but needed more limes to have any flavor. Disappointing.

The Best Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
These were really quite good. I substituted Splenda for Baking for the sugar and it worked pretty well, although the volume was a little less. Also, the Splenda, being so sweet, reduced the tartness a bit. You might want to add lemon zest or lemon flavoring to increase the zing.

Balsamic-Glazed Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
Not as special as I had hoped. Could use some doctoring.

Crunchy Catfish Nuggets

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Better than I thought it would be and a lot better than I remember as a kid. I'm not a big catfish fan, but sometimes the budget means going for something cheap. The advise of earlier reviewers to let the nuggets sit a bit before frying really helped. Also, I added a little corn meal to the breading. I may have to try this again.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Very good. The only things I did different were: 1) used the slow cooker, 2) used a carton of chicken broth instead of bouillion and 3) added a mix of spices and herbs which I added to the rue/milk mixture. This is such a good, basic recipe that you could make any number of alterations and it's still going to be good. This will be a regular staple in my cookbook.

Zesty Southern Pasta and Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2009
Makes a lot more than I expected. Great if feeding a crowd or you really like pasta salad. Taste-wise, not bad but I recommend adding a bit more Italian salad dressing, a bit more chili powder and some herbs like oregano and basil. This won't knock your socks off, but it's a good basic side dish for the summer. Just be sure to share.

Delicious Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2009
Like some other reviewers, I swapped out half the oil and sugar with applesauce, raising and extra walnuts. While the taste wasn't bad, the cooking time was way under. I'd say you need to add another hour in the oven.I'll keep working on this.

Sausage Egg Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2009
This was a hard dish to rate. If I could, I would give it a 3-1/2 stars. It's low in fat even with a double serving. But I'm very glad I added extra spices to the mixture or it would have been unreasonably bland, as so many recipes here are. I was concerned about having everything mixed together, but it worked out pretty good. I did layer the ingredients somewhat: sausage, onion and green pepper mix first, cottage and cheddar cheeses, then a mixture of the egg substitute, baking mix, milk and spices over the rest. For spices, I added oregano, basil, pepper, garlic powder and dried parsley. I'm not exactly sure what could have made this better, but I think it can be.

Hearty Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
Orignally, I was going to give this four stars based on my first bowl. Even the second wasn't bad, but the thing started to become something other than soup, more like a stew. By the third bowl, it was a gloppy unappetizing mess. I guess the lentils absorbed all the water. There are better soups out there. I'll try those.

Whole Wheat and Honey Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
Not bad, but mine came out a bit tough and a little bland. Needs salt and maybe a longer rise.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2009
This sauce isn't bad but it certainly isn't something to write home about. Also, mine came out a bit too spicy for my taste. I think having a few less ingredients and a couple hours of simmering could have improved it. It tasted flat at first and then hot. By the next morning the leftovers were inedible. Not an improvement over canned.

Breaded Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
This recipe has potential but needs a little work. Maybe one of those who really likes this can experiment with improvements. Like others, I added spices to both the batter and the breading. It helped the taste a lot, as did a honey-mustard dipping sauce. Also, the double-dipping of the batter and breading helped. These weren't bad, but they weren't that great either.

Julia's Easy Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
Oh, it's easy, alright! It's also tasteless. I can't think of what one could do to make this edible, Goodness knows I tried everything I could think of. One problem is I think it cooks for too long. While the chicken was tender, that's all I could say for it. I tried adding spices, veggies, salt, worchestershire sauce - nothing seemed to help. Might be good for nursing home patients but if your tastebuds still work and you have your own teeth, skip this .

Roasted Duck

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
This was pretty good, not really different from roasting a chicken, and not much different in flavor, either. I followed other reviewers' advice and cut the salt and eliminated the butter. Not bad when you really have a craving for duck, but not a regular dish. I made a duck stir-fry with rice with the leftovers, and that was better.

Home-Style Yeast Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
Beginning bakers beware! This recipe skips some important steps! The final product, once you throw out the first batch because of the missing steps, is not too bad. But you have to learn about those missing steps, like proofing the yeast. To convert this into a good recipe, read the article on working with yeast breads elsewhere on this site before you attempt this.

BREAKSTONE'S and KNUDSEN Cheesy Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2008
Essentially, this is hash browns au gratin. This is simple, easy, fast and would be a wonderful regular holiday staple. The fat content is a little high, but as a side dish with lower fat dishes it's acceptable.

Amazing Crab Shells

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
Forget the pasta shells. But as a dip it's pretty good. It's a little too rich for my taste, so much neufchatel! Needs work.

Microwave Risotto

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
Problem 1: Too salty Problem 2: onion gets overdone Problem 3: not enough like regular risotto Having said that, it's too not bad for a microwave dish but needs adjustments.
