Zucchini Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
This was a big hit at our dinner table. I cooked the noodles with a lid on them until they were done. Then I added the zucchini, 1/2 of the cheese and meat back in (all at the same time) and cooked for about 5 minutes more. This kept the zucchini from getting soggy, which I don't care for. Thanks for a great recipe.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
This quickly became a family favorite. I like it better with a crust, but that is just personal preference. I used some of the earlier suggestions - nutmeg (1/8 tsp), flour (2 1/2 tbsp), garlic salt (1/8 tsp). I used sharp cheddar (2 cups) and parmesan (1 cup)I also garnished with tomatoes sliced and placed in a rosette on top - the tomatoes taste good cold on the hot quiche. This is a great recipe. THANKS!

Chocolate Mint Dessert Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2014
"Obscenely good," was how one guest rated this dessert. I used a chocolate chunk boxed brownie mix. A bit of milk really smoothed out the frosting. Tip: to spread the frosting more easily, keep your spoon or spatula wet to keep it from sticking so much. Topped with dark chocolate drizzles instead of a full layer [added a touch of parafin wax to the chocolate] and made some white chocolate leaves for garnish. Fabuloso!

Spiced-Up Grilled Tater Wedges

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2014
I used unpeeled red potatoes cut into bite sized pieces. I omitted the cumin and added sage. Next time I will add just a bit of salt. I was making this for 20 people, so I cooked them two ways to save time. Sprayed cookie sheets with olive oil pam, added a single layer of potatoes and sprayed those with pam and sprinkled the seasonings on top. Baked in the oven at 400 for about an hour. They were a little dry so I put them in a covered casserole dish with about a Tbsp of water and microwaved on high for 2 minutes. The water steamed the already cooked potatoes and made them moist. The second way I cooked the potatoes was to just spray a casserole dish with olive oil pam, spray the potatoes [while on a cookie sheet] and season and add to the casserole dish. I cooked them in the microwave for about 20 minutes on high, stirring halfway through. Put the potatoes in a foil pan on the grill to keep hot while burgers were cooking. Kids and adults loved them.

Crispy Juicy Oven-Fried Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2014
A big hit with my family. I found it a bit bland. I didn't have peanut oil so I used 1 1/2 Tbsp of olive oil and 1/2 Tbsp of sesame oil which gave a slight nutty taste. I used chicken strips and cut the cooking time to 20 min/20 min. Accidentally got Vidalia onion salad dressing on the chicken [on the plate] and it was tasty so plan on adding some of that to the egg mixture next time.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
This was my first try at making refried beans and it was a hit with my family. I used a can of green chilies instead of jalapeno and minced the onion. And because I used chicken broth, I didn't add much salt at all. At 7 1/2 hours it wasn't quite done and rather soupy and I was ready to serve dinner, so I transferred it to a cast iron skillet, mashed the beans while it finished cooking down [about 10 minutes.]

Pecan Crackers

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2011
Used cinnamon graham crackers. Didn't let sauce boil 3 minutes -- just brought to a boil and then spread on crackers. We couldn't wait 'til they cooled all the way though...yummy warm. Nice afterschool treat.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2006
I thought this was easy and fairly tasty but it didn't go over very well with my family. I used the website's calculator to scale down the recipe for 3 people and did not have enough of the cheese coating to cover all the filets. My 8 year old didn't care for it even with plenty of sauce on it.

Family Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2006
This was a pleasant surprise. I wasn't sure how it would all taste together, but it was a hit with both my husband and 7 y.o. We prefer it with a little extra cheese (especially the 7 year old) and next time I will shred the chicken before putting it in the casserole as it seemed a little dry. Thanks!

Mozzarella Parmesan Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
This was easy and I had all the ingredients already in my cupboard. We all liked the dish. I would use 1/2 can of mushroom soup next time - since I didn't serve it over pasta, I didn't need all the extra sauce.

Easy Vegetable Pot Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2005
Since I used several substitutions, I hate to rate the original recipe. I used Cream of Mushroom Soup as others suggested. I substituted Mrs Dash for thyme and used frozen vegetables (my family is not big on canned veggies)that I had cooked for about 5 minutes in the microwave. Once cooked in the pie, they were not mushy and had a nice flavor. I would experiment with other seasonings if I made it again.

Moussaka

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2004
This is a nice "change of pace" dish. I omitted the "fines herbs" since I wasn't sure what that was! The nutmeg & cinnamon gives it a pleasant, distinct flavor and I liked it with the meat. (I think we used a little more nutmeg than the recipe called for however). My 5 year old didn't like it, but my husband did.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2004
I used blueberries, strawberries, green grapes and a Gala Apple, diced very small [like you would find in a relish or pico de gallo] and mixed together. Sometimes add some vanilla or strawberry yogurt keeps the fruit from falling off the cinnamon chips and omit the sugars and preserves. Very nice for a summer Hors D'Ouevers.

Eggplant and Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2004
This was easy and tasty. I liked the combination of flavors and textures. I picked a flavored stuffing that I knew I liked and so I didn't have an issue with the flavor of the stuffing. I would make it again!
