Yummy Yam Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2001
I omitted the eggs and butter from the yam mixture and used orange juice instead to make it a little more healthy (and add a little extra citrus kick). It was really great this way, not heavy at all. I did however use the 1/4 melted butter for the topping. It was really tasty and I will surely make it again.

Spicy Mexican Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2002
This was really good! I used leaf lettuce rather than Romaine, garbanzos rather than pintos. I also added chopped black olives, chopped red onion, chopped scallions and a bit of cilantro. Don't be afraid to adapt this recipe to what you have on hand. It works really well.

Creamy Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2005
As it is written, this is a bland mess. However, the thought behind it is good so I took it a few steps further. I added 2 cloves of minced garlic, 6 stalks of asparagus cut in 1 inch lengths, a small yellow squash sliced, some par boiled baby carrots and a cup of broccoli florets. Saute all the garlic and veggies together until they are heated through then continue as the recipe is written.

Eggplant Caviar

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2005
I have had eggplant caviar many many times and it has never tasted or looked this bad. Dill does not belong in eggplant caviar. 'Nuff said.

Bacon Crackers

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2005
This was one of the most mediocre recipes I've encountered on this site. It wasn't bad, it just tasted like cooked bacon on a cracker. Don't expect some mysterious transformation to an epicurean delight. Bacon cooked on a cracker with a little brown sugar will always taste like bacon cooked on a cracker with brown sugar. No excitement at all.

Blonde Brownies IV

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2001
These were really pretty bad. Way too heavy on the chocolate chips, and 12 - 15 min? You have GOT to be kidding! I baked them for 30 min and they were still raw and doughy throughout. Don't waste your time on this one, there are lots of other choices.

Chicken and Artichokes

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2002
Wonderful! This will become a regular meal for us. The chicken is very tender, the sauce is tasty (I used half stock and half sherry) and one of the easiest meals I have ever made. Highly recommended.

Corn Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2004
I have made this a few times. It is always "good" but not "great". It is much better if you add 1 jalapeno for each can of corn. It definitely needed a little spice. I also add a healthy sprinkle of cayenne.

Rueben Loaf

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2003
Excellent recipe! I made the "ham & cheese" variation that is mentioned in the intro and it was the first dish finished at our Sunday football party. Everyone (including the kids) loved it and asked that I make it for every gathering.

Garden Veggie Pizza Squares

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2003
This is marginal at best. Too sodium saturated and salty, with a soggy crust and just basically yucky. A waste of effort and calories.

Holly Berry Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2002
very tasty cookies. They are quite time-consuming to decorate, though it is worth it to see a beautiful finished product.

Rainbows

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2002
Sort of disappointing. Flavor was not bad, but they were a pain to make. Not worth the effort in my opinion.

Bacon Cheeseburger Upside Down Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2005
Unfortuately, I didn't read the reviews of this one before making it - it trusted that is had "4 stars".

Mango Tango Black Bean Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2004
I've been making a variation of this for years. I use Rose's Lime juice rather than fresh and cayenne rather than cumin and prefer that combination (I love spicy/sweet). It is excellent over lime/cumin marinated and grilled chicken breasts OR dust the chicken breasts in corn meal/flour and saute in a little butter. A staple in my house.
