Salmon Loaf

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2003
I used three 6 oz. cans of Bumble Bee boneless & skinless pink salmon, substituted crushed Ritz whole wheat crackers for the saltines, & added some onion powder.

Hot Chicken Salad V

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2003
I used light mayonaise as the creamy salad dressing, left out the poultry seasoning, and added onion powder and salt instead of onion salt. I'd previously made an almost similar recipe that called for lemon juice instead of the orange juice. My husband liked the lemon juice taste a little better than the orange juice.

Classy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2003
An elegant dish! The only change I made was to use 1/2 a teaspoon dill as my husband isn't a big dill fan. He enjoyed this though!

Best Chicken Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2003
The quiche looked pretty when I took it out of the oven but the onion soup taste was overwhelming. Maybe it would be better with half or a third of a package of the dry onion soup mix.

Stuffed Eggplant with Shrimp and Basil

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2003
Not bad. I added more than 8 shrimp. We finished the whole dish but my husband commented that the bread crumbs overpowered the flavor of the dish.

Veggie Lasagna Florentine

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2003
This had a nice taste but I thought it was too saucy. If I made it again, I'd try it with only one can of crushed tomatoes instead of 2. I only used a dash of oregano and omitted the brown sugar. I didn't sprinkle the basil on top either; I only put a little in the spinach cottage cheese mixture. Also I substituted some fresh chopped baby spinach for the frozen spinach.

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2003
My husband enjoyed this. I thought the sauce could have used a bit more of a kick, maybe ginger or cayenne or pepper flakes or something. Perhaps it would have been better with a little less water.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2003
Excellent. I sauteed the onion & garlic in a little olive oil instead of Pam for more flavor and didn't bother to spray the baking pan. With the sauce in the bottom of the pan, the lasagna didn't stick. I substituted a little oregano for the rosemary (I guess you could substitute a little basil too), used whole wheat lasagna noodles and, per one reviewer's recommendation, used a jar of (Classico) portobello mushroom sauce. Instead of the frozen spinach, I substituted a 6 oz. bag of baby spinach which I just washed, drained, & chopped into slightly smaller pieces. Although I did chop the artichokes a bit, I'd chop them a little smaller next time. Just a note - this lasagna isn't high (like you'd think of for a meat lasagna). If you'd like it higher, you could probably double the recipe, except for maybe the feta that you sprinkle on top.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2003
Yummy! I didn't pre-soak the lentils 1st (although I rinsed & drained them). Maybe because of this, the soup required about 2 hours of cooking time. The carrots though weren't soft enough after only one hour. You may need more broth or water depending on how thick you like the soup. I may try it with a small can of crushed tomatoes next time.

Carrie's Artichoke and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2003
This has a strong taste. My husband liked it a bit more than I did as he likes sour-like flavors. I left out the onion, olives & chopped fresh tomato. I used whole wheat fettucini, 2 Tbsp. butter & 2 Tbsp. olive oil instead of just butter, and only 1/2 a tsp. of black pepper; I also added some slivered pre-cooked chicken. Also I served the pasta, sauce, & parmesan separately at the table as some family members prefer less cheese.

Creamy Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2003
I give this 5 stars as a sugar free pie. As I have a diabetic relative, I made it crustless and substituted pourable Splenda. It had a nice taste without being too sweet. I used sugar free frozen, unthawed blueberries right from a bag, which was fine. I did have to cook my pie for about 1 hour and 10 minutes to get the top a little browned. Maybe this was because I'd used the frozen blueberries. As I used a 10" pie dish (I was afraid it might bubble over) and didn't use a crust, the pie wasn't high. I still enjoyed the taste. I may experiment with adding more blueberries.

Cheese Ravioli with Fresh Tomato and Artichoke Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2003
This was OK. The recipe didn't say whether or not to drain the marinated artichoke hearts. After reading the ingredients in the jar, I decided to drain them (but didn't rinse them). As I'd drained the artichokes, I added a little more olive oil. I used parmesan-romano cheese to give it a little more of a kick.

Chicken Salad On Cantaloupe Rings

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2003
This was tasty. I probably wouldn't bother to make this chicken salad on a regular basis to bring to work but it would be nice for an elegant luncheon. I guess you could experiment on the type of mustard (which had a dominant taste) that you liked to add. I used Gulden's.

Old-World Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2003
I remember many years ago having a delicious sweet 'n sour cabbage soup. I thought this soup was too sour. It might be tastier if you added some apple chunks that could dissolve during the cooking process & maybe a little sugar. I think the soup did need some salt & pepper too. Anyway, I didn't bother to microwave the vegetables 1st, as one reviewer had said it wasn't necessary. I also used a package of coleslaw that eliminated this one chopping step.

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2003
I drained & rinsed the kidney beans & corn & just added a little water to the pot. I also left out the oregano due to a personal preference of my husband. I served it with shredded cheddar, to be added at the table. This dish actually was a little sweeter than the chili recipes I've made in the past. I'd add more chili powder if I make it again.

Fettuccini Alfredo I

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2003
This wasn't bad. I added some defrosted cooked shrimp to the sauce at the end, just to heat it up. I also chose to put hot pepper sauce & crushed red pepper on the table, to be added if someone wanted it, instead of adding it to the sauce during cooking. I liked the crushed red pepper better. I wonder if a little sherry might have enhanced the taste. Even though this was a lower calorie version (as it doesn't use cream, half-and-half, or cream cheese), I probably won't make it again as my husband doesn't like rich foods that much.
