Pan-Fried Swai Fillets

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2015
I tweaked this a bit to my own liking. I omitted the red pepper and added onion powder instead. Because I am impatient and lazy, I didn't refrigerate the fish. After I coated them they went straight into the pan. I had 4 large fillets to cook so I fried 2 at a time in 4 T oil. Didn't add the water as they already had enough moisture to cook. I completely forgot I had cornmeal until I found this recipe and went searching for it. Did you know you can use expired cornmeal from FY 2012 as long as it has not been opened? Super simple way to pan fry Swai. Thank you for posting this recipe!

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2015
Easy to make and tastes good. I did cut down on the sugar by 1/4 cup because I added an extra banana so I had banana all the way to the top of a 1 cup liquid measuring cup. Frosted it with home made cream cheese frosting with 1 teaspoon of added orange extract to the frosting. YUMMY! Frosting: 1 8 oz stick cream cheese 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter 1.5 cups powdered sugar 1 T milk. 1t orange extract. Blend all together.

Kale, Quinoa, and Avocado Salad with Lemon Dijon Vinaigrette

Reviewed: May 7, 2014
Would have given it 5 stars, but too much salt in the dressing. Otherwise I can't stop eating it. I read the reviews and here are my changes. (No change to the quinoa). I used the whole cucumber, avocado, and red pepper. I used 6 tablespoons of mild sweet chopped onion. 4 tablespoons feta. I doubled the dressing ingredients EXCEPT FOR THE SALT. 3/4 teaspoon was not too much as long as you double the rest of the dressing ingredients. I soaked the chopped leaves in hot tap water for about 10 minutes. Then I drained them and followed others advice and massaged (kneaded really) the leaves with a few shakes of salt, then rinsed them. I also left out the pepper. It is a beautiful and delicious salad. You could add chicken to make it a heartier meal.

Easy, Eggless Strawberry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2014
This is delicious ice cream that I made a little less fattening by incorporating the following changes: Instead of the 2 cups whole milk, I used 1 cup of 1%, 1/4 cup cream, and 3/4 cup of fat-free half and half. I left out the vanilla. No food coloring. I used 2 cups of pureed (in a blender) strawberries. Because my strawberries were not sweet enough, I needed to add another not quite 1/4 cup of sugar. The frozen ice cream will taste less sweet than the unfrozen base so take that into consideration when testing for sweetness. I used a fine mesh strainer and poured the unfrozen ice cream through it a few times to remove the seeds. My husband loves it.

Ice Cream Base

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
One tip for those making custard, cooked ice cream bases. Before you cook up the base, make sure you have a hand held strainer propped up on the bowl in which you are going to pour your cooked base. It prevents accidentally scrambled eggs from becoming part of your ice cream. This recipe is rich and delicious. Try adding a little banana extract...wowza!!

Gelato

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2013
Made this almost exactly as stated, but added a teaspoon of banana extract after the mixture's final cooking. Best gelato I ever had. It was a little icy, but when slightly melted, OMG!! The custard base is amazing.

Hummingbird Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
I loved it with my changes: only 1 cup of oil, added a teaspoon of cinnamon, and did not drain the crushed pineapple. Also, toast the walnuts first! I also added a 1/2 teaspoon of orange extract to the frosting. This is the tastiest, moistest (is that a word?) cake ever!!!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2013
Followed another reviewers changes and made some of my own: Baked 45 minutes and it was done so check early! Used 1 1/4 cup mashed bananas, 1/3/4 cups flour, one teaspoon baking powder in addition to the baking soda, used lite sour cream. I didn't use nuts..didn't have them. I didn't use an electric mixer at all. I mixed the melted butter with the sugar in a large mixing bowl. Then I mixed into that mixture the mashed bananas, sour cream, and last of all the eggs. In a separate bowl I mixed the flour, baking soda, salt, and baking powder. I then dumped it into the wet ingredients all at once and mixed it just until everything was incorporated. No lumps!!! It worked!!!

Toffee Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
Delicious, easily cut into squares, and all liked them. Used non-stick foil to line the pan-highly recommend it! I did make a couple of changes. I used 1/2 teaspoon almond extract instead of vanilla in the crust. I mixed semi sweet and butterscotch chips 50/50 instead of milk chocolate bars to equal about 10 ounces of chips. Next time I would go 70/30 more semi sweet chocolate. Addicting!!

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
A trick I've been using lately to press them: take a hand-sized piece of plastic wrap and spray one side with Pam. Use it to press them..nothing sticks. I used Kraft cinnamon bun marshmallows and they were great..I also mixed in coconut -flavored m&ms. Both the cinnamon and coconut flavors were mild. Everyone loves them! I also use 6 cups of marshmallows and they are still a little gooey and yummy. To get a good height on the bars you need to use a smaller pan or use 1.5 times the recipe....

Nana's Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
I did make this easy recipe a little more complicated! I used this as my base and based upon other reviews and other recipes, made the following changes: I used 8 small Haralson apples and 2 unripe pears (you could leave the pears out and add a couple more apples). I mixed them with 1/4 cup white sugar, 1.5 teaspoons cinnamon, 1/4 cup flour, 1 tsp each lemon and orange zest, and 2 Tablespoons each fresh squeezed lemon juice and orange juice. Poured into pan and then dotted with the 1/4 cup cold butter. I used brown sugar for the topping, added another 1.5 tsp of cinnamon, and added a cup of chopped pecans. Baked for 50 to 55 minutes..can't remember! The citrus note was nice for a change.

I followed the instructions on the cake mix (used sugar free chocolate cake mix) plus added 2 medium mashed bananas, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons splenda, and 1/8 teaspoon salt...came out moist and delicious! Used sugar free frosting recipe on this site that uses cream cheese, sf pudding, and sf cool whip. YUMMY!

Dark Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
Good sauce! Here are the changes I made to better suit my palate: omitted the vanilla, added 6 tablespoons salted butter, used 2/3 cup packed brown sugar, used 2/3 cup milk, 1/4 cup milk chocolate melting wafers to cut the bitterness. Sauce was like shiny velvet! Thanks for the basic recipe and GOOD IDEA!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
These need a bit more salt to be outstanding. Otherwise a little too sweet. Nestle's Toll house recipe calls for 2 sticks salted butter plus 1 teaspoon salt for the same amount of sugar as this recipe has. I don't think Toll house recipe is too salty. This recipe has 1/2 teaspoon total. I used salted butter plus the 1/2 teaspoon salt. I also added a 1/4 teaspoon almond extract.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
I changed this a bit. Only used 2.5 cups flour (2 cups all purpose and 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour), 3/4 cups white and 3/4 cups brown sugar, 2.5 cups semisweet chocolate chips, lightly toasted the nuts, refrigerated over night, rolled into golfball size balls, sprinkled a tiny pinch of sea salt on each, baked at 375 degrees for 9-10 minutes for softer and 11 min for crispier, and I also added 1/2 teaspoon almond extract for an extra flavor boost. They don't taste almondy, but people detect a pleasant flavor..

Sugar Free Blueberry Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
Warning: Read the splenda directions. Even 30 minutes baking time was too long for mine. It says check 7-10 minutes before the suggested baking time. I added 2 cups of blueberries. Also, I added 1 teaspoon of orange extract instead of the vanilla. Still bland. If I make this again, I'll add more splenda and maybe some cinnamon. I did NOT make the topping. Served with sugar free cool whip.

Amazing Passover Chocolate Toffee Matzo

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
20 oz of chocolate seems like too much for 6 matzohs. Make sure you lightly toast your pecans!! Also make sure you cut them while warm or you'll be sorry! I make something similar, but use light brown sugar, one cookie sheet, 4 unsalted matzos, stir 1 cup chopped pecans into the caramel right before spreading on the matzohs, and bake the caramel on the matzos at 350 for 7 minutes. Then take out, add 1 cup chocolate chips, put back in oven for 2 minutes, take out, spread, then add sliced almonds and pat them down while chocolate is still wet. Thanks for posting this variation. This toffee is worth the effort!!!! Everyone who tastes it likes it. Seriously!

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
In addition to adding nuts to the top, I stir in about a cup of sliced almonds to the mixture right after I remove it from the heat and before I pour into the baking sheet. See a photo of the bars sitting on an ocean picture to see what I mean.
