Zucchini Fritters with Fresh Mozzarella and Tomato

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
Wonderful fritters! I followed the recipe as stated, only I made my fritters a little smaller than 1/4 cup batter per fritter. I used Old German Heirloom tomatoes, and also topped each fritter with a little chopped fresh basil. I served this with grilled "Balsamic Chicken." Nom! To reheat these fritters, microwave until just warm, then heat the rest of the way in the toaster oven...

Blueberry Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2011
I want to start out by saying nutmeg is my most favorite spice. Period. This is the first time I haven't liked nutmeg in something! It just doesn't GO in this recipe, and I only used a few dashes... Other than this problem, it's a great recipe. I added a ripe banana, and used frozen blueberries.

Banana Frittata

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
This is such an unusual sounding recipe, but I've become addicted to it! I cut the recipe in half, and my toddler and I eat this frittata several times a week for breakfast now. The only change I have is like others, which is to mash the banana(s) and mix into the egg/flour mix. The KEY to cooking this frittata well is LOW AND SLOW. Low temp, and longer than you would, say, an omelet.

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
I made exactly as stated, only doubling, cooking in a 9x13 pan, then cooling half the bread before wrapping and freezing for later use. I love sweets, and sweet cornbread, but this was a little too sweet for me, so next time I'll reduce the sugar a little. This is my new favorite cornbread.

Chicken with Stuffing

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
DH said in a rather flat voice that this dish was "interesting." In other words, "Please don't make this again." The only change I made was to reduce the water, and add a few carrots I needed to use up. This was a bland dish. It's the same as Swiss Chicken Casseroles, minus the cheese--but the cheese is needed to add flavor. I won't make this again.

Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
This was spectacular, and can't wait to make again. I didn't have Italian dressing so I used a Greek dressing and marinated the chicken overnight. I made a meal out of these by placing each ingredient in it's own dish, and let everyone make their own wraps. Oh! I also added chopped Kalamata olives. Served with fruit.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
This was excellent! I only had 1 Tbs ginger, but it was perfect. More may have been too overpowering. I made the sauce before deciding it needed 1/2 cup coconut milk--perfect! I also cooked cubed chicken in the sauce then added baby corn, broccoli, and sweet red peppers. I subbed bean sprouts for the green onions. Lastly, I served to kids so I left out the chili paste but poured 2 tsp pepper flakes in a ramekin then added a little peanut sauce to them to soften them up. Hubby and I then added this to our individual bowls for some heat. This would taste great with fresh cilantro too.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
This was so easy, and so delicious! I make my own dressing, mainly using Hidden Valley packets, and I only had their Garlic & Herb mix made with white balsamic vinegar on hand. I also used Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce. The one complaint (and loss of star) is that there is too much sauce to wade through to get to the meat. Will definitely make again.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
I'm sad to say I wasn't impressed with these pancakes. My 8yo asked that I make "normal" pancakes next time. The only changes I made were adding 1 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp cinnamon. The only way I could avoid mushy middles was to make really thin pancakes, and cook for a long time, but then they didn't hold up well while eating. It probably would've been faster to just make banana bread. I also like making extra pancakes for freezing/eating the next day, but these didn't taste very good on day two. Sorry, not making again.

Belle's Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
I halved the recipe since we're a small family. The only change I made to the ingredients was to split the flour between all purpose and whole wheat. I didn't have time to boil then cool down my milk/water, so I added a thermometer to the pot. As soon as the temp was at 110, I added to my bread machine. I then added the ingredients in the order my machine instructions say to. Can't wait to make these again!

Stacey's Hamburger Seasoning

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
Since we have kids, I reduced the black and cayenne peppers. I also added finely minced onion to the burgers. I used 2 tsp per pound of ground beef as someone else suggested. Our burgers were excellent, and I can't wait to use this seasoning again.

Allie's Delicious Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
I made this with a few modifications because of what I had on hand. I increased the pasta to 12oz as others have suggested, and used mozz. and cheddar cheeses. I also doubled the ham to use up the Easter leftovers (1/4 pound isn't much for a 9x13 pan anyway, IMO). Added 1tsp powdered mustard and Worcestershire. DH gave it 5 stars, I gave it 3 because it was way too thick and creamy for my tastes, so overall, this received 4 stars.

Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
I've made this recipe twice, and have been happy both times. My one change was using fresh milk, and adding an extra 1/4 cup of flour. Tonight I rolled into small balls and added three to a muffin tin. Thanks for an easy recipe, and a nice change to the bread on our dinner table.

Stacey's Fabulous Purple Potato Gratin

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
I deducted a star not because of taste, but because this recipe should list the amount of potatoes by weight, not by quantity since potato sizes can vary greatly. That said, I doubled the recipe, used a 2 LB bag of potatoes, and baked in a 9x3 dish. I didn't have goat cheese or leeks, so used cheddar and one garden fresh shallot. I removed the bacon before adding the shallot and chopped. Once the shallot was cooked to my liking, I replaced the bacon, added the milk and cheese first (to melt and heat up easier) then the potatoes. If I ever have goat cheese I need to use up, I'll try in this recipe, but it tastes great with cheddar.

Janine's Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
My new favorite banana bread! It's not as dense as my old favorite. I make one minor change which is using 2 TBS butter, 2-3 TBS applesauce, and a few additions. I add 1tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp fresh ground nutmeg. Make sure your bananas are large, or use 4 smaller bananas.

Hugh's Dry Rub

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
I cut the recipe in half, but could've cut into 1/4 because it makes a lot of seasoning. I even reduced the paprika further since it's mainly for color, and cut the cayenne since we have kids. This was still too spicy for the kids, but tastes great. I'm looking forward to using this as a base for adding more seasonings for different types of rubs.

Asparagus and Mushroom Quiche

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
This was my first quiche ever--making or eating. Awesome. Delicious. I'm making again this week! A few changes because of what I had on hand... I used fresh shallot shoots instead of an onion, part 2% milk and whipping cream, added an extra egg, and extra bacon. I also threw all of the veggies in the bacon grease and cooked that way. I left out the salt, and added 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Trust me, you won't even know it's in there.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
I didn't have the energy to adjust the marinade to our tastes like I normally do, and it's a good thing too! I made exactly as stated, and let the meat marinade for 36 hours before grilling. My oldest, who usually fusses over everything I make gobbled this up before anything else on his plate! That's enough for 5 stars!

Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2010
This was my first try at making noodles, and they turned out great! I served in chicken noodle soup. I tried rolling the dough into a "cigar" then cutting it, but my dough stuck together. I ended up using a pizza cutter after I rolled the dough flat, and liked the results much better.
