Sicilian Spaghetti

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
I made this spaghetti for dinner last night and we were pretty disappointed with it I'm afraid. I kept all the ingredients the same expect I used half the amount of spaghetti and bread crumbs. The end result didn't really taste like anything....well except for spaghetti with breadcrumbs and a little bit of garlic. I might be able to work with this recipe over time, but I doubt I'll try.

E-Z Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
Really good biscuits! I made these tonight to go with some soup and the only change I made was to add 1 Tbsp of sugar (instead of 2 tsp). The end result was a really light, flaky and tasty biscuit....I would bet that this will become my "go to" biscuit recipe!

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
Well, unfortunately we didn't really enjoy this soup much at all. I tweaked the recipe a little to accommodate our personal preferences. I added 3 medium cloves of garlic to the leeks; I used whole milk instead of cream and I added 2 packs of chicken bouillon while the potatoes were boiling (for added flavor). I also pureed the soup using my hand blender. The end result was a very rich soup which I ended up having to add another can of chicken broth to as the finished product was still really thick. The flavor of the bacon overpowered the flavor of everything else. So while the soup is very quick and easy to prepare, we probably won't make it again.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Yumm!! I made these pancakes for breakfast this morning for my family and everyone really enjoyed them - especially my 2-year old! I made two minor changes in that I added about 1 tsp of pure vanilla extract and I used butter instead of the oil. The recipe yield is a bit off though as this recipe makes 8 pancakes using a 1/3 cup measure, so not enough for 6 people, but enough for 2 adults and a toddler. The only reason this recipe didn't receive 5 stars is that my husband felt the banana flavor was too strong, so the next time I will reduce the amount of banana to one large.

Brunch on the Bayou

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
I made this casserole on Christmas Eve to bake and serve on Christmas morning. I followed the recipe for the most part, the only changes I made were to add a medium diced onion to the sausage mixture when cooking and I omitted the white wine because I didn't have any that was appropriate to use in this dish. I was a bit concerned about how the sour cream would affect this dish, but the end result was a really good savory casserole which was perfect with fresh fruit salad on a busy morning.

Flatlander Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2007
My DH and I made this for dinner tonight and it was delicious...although we changed so many things that we probably should just post our own recipe! Here is what we did: cut the recipe in half to 5 servings; used 2 cups tomato juice; omitted the tomato sauce; added 1 can "spicy red pepper" diced tomatoes; 4 cloves garlic; omitted the green pepper; added 1 can kidney beans and 1 can brown beans in molasses; we also increased the amount of sugar to about 1 Tbsp and the amount of chili powder by an additional 2 tsp. We simmered stovetop for about 2 hours and then transferred to a slow cooker for about 3 or 4 hours. The end result was absolutely delicious served with sour cream, grated cheddar and sliced green onion.

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
I made these potatoes tonight for dinner alongside some baked chicken and neither my husband or I enjoyed the flavor. I followed the recipe exactly and the potatoes were very lemony and just tasted like they boiled in their own sauce. The only change I made was to alter the cooking time as the potatoes took over an hour to cook. It's not likely that we will make these potatoes again.

Garlic Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
I made this for dinner tonight and it was really yummy. I changed a few things based on other reviews, here is what I did: I pounded my chicken breasts pretty thin; I used a mixture of cornflake crumbs and bread crumbs; I used basil instead of oregano; I dredged the chicken in flour before the butter and crumb/cheese mixture. I also cut the recipe in half using 3 medium sized chicken breasts. The end result was very moist, flavorful chicken which we will very likely make again.

Awesome Baked Sea Scallops

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
I made these scallops tonight for dinner and served them alongside some lemon spaghetti (Rachael Ray's recipe). The end result was pretty darn good, but if I were to make them again, I would change a few things. My DH over salted the scallops (which isn't the fault of the recipe), but I mention it as a point of caution because scallops are pretty briny to begin with (plus if you're using salted butter, this will add to it); so be careful of the amount of salt you use. Secondly, we used panko instead of regular bread crumbs and we found that it was just too much bread crumb for the amount of scallops (1 lb which is about 16 medium/large scallops). Next time, I would reduce the amount of panko to 2/3 cup. Lastly, 5 Tbsp of butter is too much, you could easily cut this in half and still get the buttery flavor (especially considering the olive oil used on the bread crumbs).

Grandma's Doughnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
These were good and super easy given what they are. We had "donuts" inside 20 minutes or so. They're not as sweet as a regular donut, but they do in a pinch. Thanks for such a clever idea!

Roasted Beet Soup with Creme Fraiche

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I made this for a dinner party and the end result was pretty good - the wow factor (once I piped a Christmas tree on the top with sour cream) was even better. I sub'd allspice with chinese 5 spice and increased this along with the ginger to 1/2 tsp. I also left out the onion because I didn't have any and increased the leek and celery to 2 stalks each; I also used whipping cream instead of heavy cream. I found it really rich and a little bit went a long way.

Garden Herb Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I made this bread yesterday and we were really happy with the end result. I followed the method exactly, but I did swap out the marjoram for some fresh dill (thought I had some and did not). The bread is pretty dense and is both sweet and savory at the same time. I'm looking forward to trying it toasted!!

BLT Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I made this dip for a dinner I hosted last night and it wasn't received very well. Initially I cut the recipe in half, added all the ingredients and tasted it and all I could taste is mayonnaise! Needless to say, I ended up doubling the amount of sour cream and I reduced the amount of bacon as I felt it was just too much. In the end, it wasn't really our cup of tea; only a few people tried it and they didn't go back for seconds! :(

Slow Cooker Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I made these potatoes to serve along side a pork roast at a dinner party we were hosting. The end result was pretty good, but I did mess up the recipe a little. When I cooked the potatoes, I forgot to add everything to the pot, so I ended up having to add it after the fact (I just minced 2 cloves of garlic, added to the mashed potatoes and hoped for the best). I did follow the advice of another reviewer by placing an absorbent towel under the lid to collect the moisture and it worked out great. The potatoes were still a bit more runny than I would have wanted, the the flavour was pretty good.

Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
I made this mousse to serve at a dinner party we hosted last night and it was really well received. I made the raspberry sauce using triple sec because that's what I had on hand and my (frozen) berries were already in light syrup, so I didn't add sugar. Unfortunately, I whipped my cream too much (to stiff peaks instead of soft peaks), so the end result of my mousse was somewhat stiffer than it should have been, but it was still really tasty. We all agreed in the end that the while the mousse is really good, it is the raspberry sauce that really makes it.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
I made this for dinner the other night and the only change I made was to cook the soup on high for about 5 hours (instead of low). After I cubed the chicken and added it back, I turned the temperature down to low. The end result was a really yummy soup, but both my DH and I found that it was the cheese, sour cream and crushed tortilla's that really made this dish. As a side note, this makes a lot of soup, so if you're eating leftovers, the soup gets really thick once it cools, so you might want to consider adding more liquid (chicken stock?).

Crunchy Romaine Toss

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
Yum - I made this as a side to a frittata for dinner last night and it was really tasty! I followed the advice of other reviewers and used almonds instead of walnuts. The only other changes I made were to omit the salt from the dressing and I used about 1/2 packet of the soup base seasoning from the noodles (I also cut the entire recipe in half). Lastly, I steamed the broccoli for a few minutes as DH and I aren't huge fans of raw broccoli. It still had lots of bite, but just took the 'edge' off the rawness! The end result was really yummy...the only downside was trying to keep our hands off the noddle/nut combination until dinner could be served!!

Spinach and Potato Frittata

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
I made this frittata for supper last night and we really enjoyed it. I did make some minor changes though; instead of using red potatoes, I used white (diced them instead of slicing), I used shallot instead of green onion; for added richness I used 10% cream instead of milk (an unnecessary substitution as it turns out). The only change I made was to use about 1/2 box of frozen chopped spinach instead of fresh. The meal came together very quickly without a lot of fuss and in the end it was very tasty.

Gooey BBQ Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2007
Alright, so these kind of sucked, but it was probably my fault. Instead of baking for 30 mins, turning and baking for another 30 mins, we baked for 60 mins (we went and got groceries while they were baking). When we returned, the wings were pretty dried out. I made the sauce anyway (used half Diana's honey garlic and half hickory), poured it over the wings and baked for another 15 minutes. I took them out of the oven and let them sit for 5-10 minutes and ate. Some of the wings were pretty dried out, but some were good. I might make these again, but reduce the initial cooking time to maybe 40 minutes.
