Fettuccini Carbonara

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
Very good recipe. I used linguini instead of fettuccini, and following others' suggestions, used half a pound of pasta instead of a full pound. Used 2 shallots, no onion, half in half instead of heavy cream, half a pound of bacon, one egg. I cooked the bacon first, then cooked the shallots and garlic in some of the leftover bacon grease (poured most of the grease out). My ten year old didn't really like it, especially the shallots, but I think my older daughter will like it.

Sweet Potato Casserole I

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
I used fresh sweet potatoes, not canned. Only used 1/4 cup of white sugar as I figured it would be sweet enough. Also only used 3/4 cup of brown sugar and the dish was still very sweet. I was in a rush, and forgot to add the flour, but the topping turned out fine. The dish looked great coming out of the oven.

Carrot Souffle

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
I found it took me FOREVER to get the carrots soft enough. Like others mentioned, I used only half a cup of sugar, and I used brown sugar instead of white, also used butter and cinnamon. I liked the dish but my husband and 10-year-old only thought it was "OK" and my 7-year-old didn't care for it. Still, it was an interesting recipe and I enjoyed trying it, other than the carrots taking forever to cook.

Delicata Delish

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2006
Enjoyed this dish. I used acorn squash as that's all that was available at the supermarket. I also left out the garlic as I'm not a big garlic fan and I thought the shallots would be enough. Tasty dish, and very nutritious.

Pastitsio II

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2006
I liked this dish a lot -- thanks for the recipe. I did make some changes to the sauce -- did not use vegetable sauce or tomato paste, but instead used an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce which was pre-flavored with basil, garlic and oregano. Increased wine to one cup. Didn't use the parsley or garlic. My 6-year-old thought the dish was "OK" but my 10-year-old loved it and my husband liked it quite well.

Seattle Dutch Babies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2005
This turned out well. I used Bisquick instead of flour, and no salt. I don't think it made enough for myself and my 2 daughters (ages 5 and 9) so I'll probably change the serving size to 6 next time.

Stuffed Shells III

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2004
This recipe doesn't need added salt; there's enough salt in the cheese and sauce. I didn't use mushrooms, and made my own sauce. The filling turned out nice and fluffy and my family and I enjoyed this dish.

Broccoli and Ramen Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2004
Thank you for posting this recipe. We tasted a dish like this at a picnic and my husband wanted me to find the recipe. I used Oriental flavored Ramen noodles, toasted some almonds instead of peanuts, left out the onions and cut down on the sugar. I didn't have cider vinegar so I used plain vinegar and a little apple juice. It turned out well.

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2004
My kids loved this. I cut back a little on the sugar and added a little honey; also used Pumpkin Pie spice instead of the cinnamon. Rather than using all white flour, I used about 1 1/4 cups of wheat flour and the rest white. Overall, very tasty.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2004
I made quite a few changes: used 1/2 onion, no garlic, roughly 3/4 cup of broccoli, sharp cheddar instead of mozzarella, 3 eggs (based on previous comments here), and 1 1/4 cups milk. Also added fresh chopped chives and a no-salt herb mix. Had to cook it about 50 minutes. Turned out well.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2004
Very good; a nice change of pace. I am not used to broiling fish, but the directions were good regarding the timing. Didn't use the onion powder or celery salt but it turned out fine.

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2003
Very tasty, and I love the fact that they are nutritious. My young kids like them too. I halved the recipe and used canned pumpkin (and 2 eggs). Based on the new numbers, I still used only a little more than half the amount of sugar called for. Instead of all the spices, I used close to 3 teaspoons of Pumpkin Pie Spice. Thanks for the recipe.

Corn Chowder I

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2003
Delicious! Better than I thought it would be. I halved the recipe and made some changes: didn't really measure the potatoes, used one can of creamed corn and one can of regular corn, doubled the cheese, and used a mixture of 25% light cream and 75% milk. My husband and four-year-old enjoyed it a lot also.

Chocolate Sour Cream Cookies

Reviewed: May 23, 2003
Consistency of batter was a bit unusual but the cookies turned out well. They were just a little bland and perhaps could benefit from 1/4 tsp. or so of salt added to the batter. My kids liked them.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2003
Delicious! My daughter who's six, said it's the best bread she's ever had. I used fresh rosemary and took it out of the bread machine to bake in a convection oven. Next time, I think I'll add parmesan cheese.
