Easy Tilapia with Wine and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
For ease, this is 5-stars...however, it is rather bland. A great idea but definitely needs more flavor. Perhaps marinating the tomatoes, etc. prior to putting on the fish would have brought out more flavor.

Olde Tavern Spoon Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
Although this was quite tasty, it wasn't as creamy as I'm use to having spoon bread. I'll look for my old recipe...

Mediterranean Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
Although I modified this a bit due to what was on hand, I believe I achieved the same result--delish! I used sliced black olives and vermouth (about 1/2 the amount), canned diced tomatoes, and Greek seasoning. After cooking, I cut each chicken breast half in half again. I served it on top of orzo and garnished with feta cheese. It was a beautiful dish.

Spinach and Mushroom Frittata

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
Although I had to make substitutions based on my pantry, I thought this dish was very good. (Sub cottage cheese for ricotta, added feta & used less Parmesan, doubled spiced, added fresh jalapeno.) It baked very nicely and had a rich flavor and texture.

JELL-O Magic Mousse

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
Like others, I've been making this recipe for years. I find that it mixes and pours better in a blender. I have made it with 8-oz. Cool Whip--it works with small layer of topping..still good. Orange is a favorite flavor.

Spicy Lime Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
As written with 3 T. Cajun seasoning, the shrimp is too hot to be edible--thus, the one star. With the Cajun seasoning (less than 1 T.) just sprinkled over the shrimp, it is very good with a nice mild lime flavor.

Hot Jezebel

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
I really liked this sauce very much. I did add a touch more horseradish and lots of black pepper. It was hard not to eat every bit of it myself!

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
This was good and I would make it again using beef or chicken broth. I did leave out the carrots as I don't like carrots with black beans. I also did not puree the beans so the soup was thinner. I probably shouldn't have added all 4 cups of stock.

Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
I really disliked this sauce--I couldn't eat it at all! I tried it with Frank's Hot Sauce and with Crystal Hot Sauce. The butter aroma and flavor was overwhelming in both batches.

S'mores Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
I made these using 9 oz. chocolate chips--plenty--and 1/2 chocolate graham crackers & 1/2 honey graham crackers. Definitely not enough crumb for the size pan. I chilled the bars after cooking & cooling. The first ones were delicious but leftovers (kept in the fridge) were chewy and soft-gummy. Won't make again.

Pumpkin Pie French Toast

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
This was very good and a nice change from regular French Toast. My family only rated it a 4, though. I thought it had a nice "pumpkin pie" taste although I only used 1 t. pumpkin pie spice. I will add either 1/2 tsp. cinnamon or another 1/2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice next time. I used evaporated milk and no walnuts.

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2011
This was delicious--I couldn't get enough of it. I used frozen spinach and 2% milk and left out the bacon bits. I put everything in the pan and poured the sauce over the top. I served it over spaghetti and on my, I think I'll make it again today!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
I first made this about 4 years ago for my son's 4th grade class--3 batches of it! Why I didn't rate it then, I don't know for it is a wonderful banana muffin recipe. The taste of banana is apparent as canola oil was used rather than melted butter and brown sugar rather than white. The crumb topping is more than enough for the 13 muffins each batch made. It is really a light textured muffin. Although not really sweet, for my personal taste I would reduce the sugar (brown) to 2/3 cup.

Slow Cooker Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Oh my! So easy and so delicious! I doubled the recipe but used only 1 t. Kosher salt (plenty salty) and left out the pepper. I did use real butter and just lightly sprinkled the garlic powder over the potatoes--didn't measure but wasn't heavy-handed. After 3 1/2 hours on HIGH, the potatoes were done (only cut them in half but did peel them as they weren't the best Russets I had). I mashed them in the crock and used 1 3/4 cups of 2% milk. Creamy, delicious, yummy! I left them on warm until dinner. Next time, I think I would triple the recipe, just to have leftovers or to have enough for guests.

Baking Powder Biscuits II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
I've made these twice now. The first time I made them as drop biscuits, yielding 9, and cooked them in the toaster oven. The did not brown and were very, very crumbly. The second time I added 1 T. sugar and made cut biscuits, yielding 7 biscuits, brushed the tops with an egg wash, and baked in the conventional oven. They were better but still crumbly. I lost my recipe for biscuits using oil so thought I'd try this recipe. I will continue to search for my recipe.

Seattle Dutch Babies

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Using the Magic Bullet, I added 1 T. sugar to the batter. I preheated the oven to 450° and used a cast iron skillet, melting real butter (which is absolutely needed for taste). I reduced the heat to 400° and cooked it a total of 20 minutes. A basic Dutch pancake but nothing special. I would make it again because it is very easy and fed 3 people adequately with apple pie filling on the side.

Chicken and Gnocchi Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Although I didn't add the cream (not fond of cream soup), it was delicious. I did use frozen spinach and added 3 cups water with 1 T. chicken bouillon. I would add more carrots next time...and perhaps mushrooms although DH would prefer asparagus. All done in the crockpot in 3 hours on high.

5 Minute Microwave Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
In spite of not being crusty like baked cornbread, this is delicious and worth every star given the ease, quickness and taste. The texture is a bit spongy but that's what I expect from the microwave. I don't know why I waited to try this recipe--a must, especially in the summer!

Chicken with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
Even with the addition of garlic, something is missing. I did use all wine and 1 yellow onion rather than the green onions (none on hand), sprinkling in flour before adding the wine (rather than using the cornstarch-water mixture). It was good because the wine was good but it still needed another herb...rosemary? tarragon? thyme?

Baron's Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
I made this for dinner on 8/5/11...in the crock pot. It turned out so well and was so easy. I was concerned about the quantity of sugar (I don't care for dishes too sweet) and had intended to add a bit of lemon juice to the berries but forgot. I'm glad I didn't as the dish was perfect. Normally, I use a biscuit-type topping for cobblers but I doubt I'll do so again. This topping is perfect for many fruits. I can't wait to try it with peaches. (Oh, I did double the cornstarch since my berries were frozen. The consistency was perfect.)
