The Best Red Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
This was very good! Thanks for a simple tasty recipe. I did need to add a tiny bit of sugar at the end to help pull the "can" flavor out of the tomato paste, so I think next time I will cook the paste a bit before putting the rest of the ingredients into the sauce pan with it and then whisk it together.

Bok Choy Beef Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
This was a really tasty base! As the submitter states, it is nice to add a bit to it, extra chili paste some lime, etc. Nice with noodles also. I did need to cook mine a bit longer than stated to get my bok choy soft, so you may want to plan for that when making or chop your bok choy stems pretty thin (I used the leaves and the stems, the recipe may have intended only the leaves at that cooking time).

Perfect Baked Jerk Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
My family really liked this chicken! It was not at all spicy - I might add a little extra kick next time I make it, but it was pretty clear in the description that it wasn't meant to be "spicy" I used 5 chicken leg quarters cut into legs and thighs in the recipe because that is what I had and the cook time was perfect. Thanks for a new family staple.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
these were delicious! a really great banana muffin, not too dense, etc. You can go a bit lighter on the sugar if you like - they are really sweet!

Lemon Blueberry Drop Scones

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
i really liked these! Very easy to make, but super tasty. If you like things very sweet, you will need to increase the sugar a bit - I found them perfect, but they definitely are not "sweet" - they let the berries and glaze do all the talking there. Keep in mind that your yogurt is contributing to the sugar too. I used a small container of a lower sugar lemon yogurt and made up the difference with a couple of tablespoons of plain greek yogurt, so I am sure this contributed to my lack of sweetness. The batter (it is more a batter than a dough - they are *drop* scones) is pretty sticky, so grease your portioning utensil or spoon!

Caramel Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I love these, my kids love these, people wait for me to hand them out every-year! I have made them with air-popped corn, pan-popped and microwave and all turn out well. If you air pop, be sure to add a bit of salt though. And do be careful to sort the unpopped kernels out though ;)

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2006
In all my adilt life I have always been thinking of this exact pancake whenever I wanted pancake, and this is the first pancake - homemade or restaurant that has ever delivered! Perfect texture and moisture level, etc. I did sub as foloows - honey for sugar, lemon juice and milk for buttermilk and strawberries (crushed) for the extra milk. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2004
This was a great soup. Everyone I served it to loved it. Reheats well. Don't forget to top with cheese, tortillas and extra cilantro, lime and sour cream.

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2004
Only changes I made were to use veggie rotini instead of shells and jarred roasted red peppers instead of fresh. This is an excellent pasta salad. I disagree with other reviews that you can use a bottled italian dressing though (tried that and it was nowhere near as good). Only caution on this is that it is 12 LARGE servings - not a small side serving. I used a very large bowl and still had to leave out a bit of stuff to fit it in. I ate this for a week and still had alot left over, but not because I didn't like it.

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2004
Pretty good soup. Was nice and somewhat flavorful without being too much. I added hotsauce to mine and thought they were great. This recipe turns out results that could be served to large groups with some condiments to make everyone happy.

Apple Strudel

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2004
This recipe was okay, not great and not quite what i had been looking for. From a time and effort standpoint it is quite a bit of work (buttering phyllo, preping apples, etc.) and the results are just kind of bland and generic.

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2004
This punch was really really good.....I think. I actually didn't get any though. I made 4 batches for a wedding with right around 100 guests. We ran out fast. When figuring your quantity and using the recipes "40 servings" keep in mind that those servings are around 5 oz. and that most adults drink more than that especially when served with nuts and cake as frequently the case at showers and receptions.

Best Ever Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2004
Pretty good meatloaf. Has a soft texture, but the slices hold together well. I used v-8 in place of the tomato juice and added a tiny bit of chopped celery, but think the recipe does need a bit of a boost. Probably should have used a pack of onion soup mix, etc. I did need to cook mine quite a bit longer than recipe.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: May 27, 2004
Really good. I use yogurt instead of mayo as I hate mayo. Turns out great everytime, although it is slightly oily.

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2003
This really is very good and very versatile. I am not one to give 5 stars unless a recipe is extremely versatile, and has *unusually* excellent results. Have used cornbread crumbs, walnuts, brown sugar, maple syrup etc. as subs with great success. I really dislike salmon and still enjoyed this dish and hubby with thrilled - he likes salmon but hates nuts. Really very good recipe!

Hearty Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2003
If you aren't looking for a regular "cookie" - these are really good. They are a bit dry and heavy and should not be confused for any kind of standard chocolate chip cookie replacement, but if you are looking for something to replace an energy bar, or to serve to small children without guilt, etc. these are fabulous. A couple of notes though - I used fresh, natural peanut butter which was pretty chunky - this may have added to the dryness in my batch. I also replaced half of the raisins with sunflower seeds and carob chips - this also probably added to the dryness. I used apple juice in place of water, and replaced 1/3 c. of the brown sugar with honey (ran out of brown sugar). I also had to reduce the cooking time to 15 minutes. In the end, my husband liked them - which really surprised me, my 2 year old likes them, and I think they are fairly good. I give 4 stars for overall taste and versatility of the recipe.
