Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
I made these and gave them to friends as a thank you present - that's how good they are. You need 2 bananas for 1 cup mashed. Also, I used plain greek yogurt to add some protein; no discernible difference.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
I've made this twice now: the first time with the ricotta substitution (per other reviews) and the second time with the sour cream (per the recipe). If you like a creamy sauce with your pasta, stick with the recipe. This was more to our taste and liking. Ricotta is too dry for Baked Ziti IMHO. I mixed half of the meat sauce with half of the ziti for first layer (stir to coat the ziti), added provolone and sour cream, then added the other half of the ziti and meat sauce. Topped with mozzarella and parmesan. Cook covered for 30 min, took foil off last 5 min to brown the cheese. It is super easy and tastes great, and worthy of company.

Mexican Corn

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
I cut the recipe in half and used only 1 can of corn for 2 adults. I used jalepeno slices from a jar instead of fresh jalepenos. You only need about 5 slices to get a good heat. The first time, I used 10an d it was almost too hot to eat.

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
I used 5 boneless, thin sliced pork chops. I doubled the recipe, but it was not necessary. I had too much bread crumb mixture. Next time I will use the suggested amount for 2 servings (for 5 chops). I also used 1 tablespoon lemon juice b/c I didn't have a lemon on hand. I added it to the egg. Next time, I will add at least another 1/2 tablespoon for more lemon flavor. After browning both sides, I placed in the oven for 10 min each side (20 min total). Everyone enjoyed it, but I look forward to making it again with these changes.

Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
I used 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary as a substitute for the tablespoon of fresh. I also used garlic powder as I was short on time. I waited to salt and pepper until the potatoes (fingerling) were on the pan. I had to add about 10 extra minutes to the cook time to get them fully browned. Tasted great - you can serve this to company.

Glazed Mint Brownies

Reviewed: May 19, 2012
I used package brownies in an 11x7 pan. For the filling, I used 1/8 tsp less of the peppermint extract than called for. I let the brownie/filling sit in the refrigerator for several hours. I followed others' suggestions and used 3 tbsp butter and 3/4 cup choc chips for the glaze. This was just enough to cover the brownies in the 11x7 pan. Both the filling and the glaze are thin layers - a nice compliment to the brownie, but not over the top sweet.

Insalata Caprese II

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
I like to chop up the basil and put it on top of the mozzarella. My kids eat it better this way (vs. large leaf). I boil down some basalmic vinegar and pour on top. Delicious. There are never any leftovers.

Chicken Flautas

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
I used more Monterey jack, skipped the cheddar cheese altogether. I followed another reviewer's suggestion about using nonstick spray and heating 5 sec on each side. I had to cook longer than suggested, and even then the bottoms of the flautas were soft (used a cookie sheet). Next time I may try turning them over 1/2 way thru. Served with guacamole and sour cream. Entire family, including kids, ate them.

I get frequent requests for this dish. I use 3-4 baked sweet potatoes (350 degrees, 1 - 1.5 hours). brown sugar 1/4 cup; vanilla up to 1 tsp; 1 tsp of cinnmon, 1/4 tsp of both ground clove and ground nutmeg (each). Made topping as directed.

Slow-Cooked Taco Shredded Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2012
Easy and the kids ate them. I served with diced onions, shredded ranchero cheese and soft corn tortillas (heated). Everyone added onions, etc. to their taste. Two pounds made about 9 tacos - next time I'll buy a bigger chuck roast (family of 5).

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2012
To peel tomotoes, score bottom, place in boiling water for 30 sec and then place in cold water. I used half-and-half instead of the cream, and only used 1/4 cup butter. It turned out great. UPDATE: I double this recipe all the time. I use two cans of large diced tomatoes to save time on peeling. Still tastes wonderful. This is in our regular weekly line-up for dinners.

Holiday Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
Thanks for the other reviews. I doubled this recipe for a dinner with 20 adults, 11 kids. I cut back the chicken stock as suggested, left out the bell pepper, cubed the white bread instead of using the processor (used a full loaf for double the recipe. Cut it into cubes and then let it sit out over night) and added extra sage. It was delicious and the crowd was very pleased. Texture was moist (not dry or too wet) and hearty enough to chew. I did drain the sausage.
