Italian Dressing Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
Perfect. I can't say how it tastes when making salad dressing but I used it in place of a packet for Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches (AR) and it was great, I used the full amount the recipe made. I did use garlic powder instead of garlic salt and cut the salt down to 1 tsp. But that is for family health reasons. Thanks for the recipe!

Mocha Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
Yummy! These are really good. I used 3 really big bananas. I used mini chocolate chips, and instead of water I used coffee to dissolve the instant coffee in. Mine only took 16 minutes to cook through so keep an eye on them. Thanks for the recipe.

Chicken with Sun-Dried Tomato and Roasted Pepper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
This was very good. I changed the serving size to 6 but only used 4 chicken breasts. I sliced the breasts into 1/2 strips and continued with the recipe. Also I used a 1 1/2 T of cornstarch mixed with water to thicken the sauce instead of flour. The sauce when finished tasted a little bitter to me so I added 2 fresh basil leaves (its all I had) and some dried basil (didn't measure). I think the bitterness was from the brand of tomatoes I used. The sweetness from the basil helped to balance the bitterness. I used a Merlot for the wine. It was a really good dish. Also after you drain your pasta toss it with a little bit of olive oil so that it doesn't stick together into one mass clump when you serve it. Thanks for the recipe.

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2011
Oh yum! My favorite thing to get at IHOP is the Harvest Grain and Nut pancakes but we don't go there often and I miss the pancakes. These were better. I added some extra egg since I had to change the recipe yield to 8 and it called for 1 1/4 egg. So I just used 2, also added some vanilla. My husband and kids also loved these. Hubby says they are "Awesome!" I'll be making these again.

Pesto Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2011
Recipe Group Recipe********We enjoyed this recipe. But there were some problems I had with it. The pesto is really really thick so I added a little bit of half and half to thin it down. I couldn't bring myself to add the cold pesto on top of the pasta so I warmed it up in a pan and added a little of the pasta water to thin it out a bit then tossed it with the pasta. I think that it was a bit heavy for angel hair so if I make it again I will use a bigger pasta. And I would add a little salt when mixing the pesto together, it was a bit bland if you got some without cheese. Thanks for the recipe.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
Very good cake. I substituted the water for coffee, it brings out the chocolate flavor more. I made these into cupcakes for my son's Valentine's Day party. Baked at 350 for 16 minutes and they came out perfect. I got 26 cupcakes out of the recipe. Family snatched a couple before I could frost them so I'm not sure exactly how many I got! Thanks.

Basic Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
This is a very good bean soup. I had a ham bone with meat on it in the freezer so I just threw that in with the beans. Came out great. I served with Indian Fry Bread. Yum. Great meal for a cold winter day! Thanks for the recipe.

Skillet Potatoes with Bacon and Cheddar

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Recipe Group******This is pretty good but it needs salt added to the potatoes while they are cooking. Other than that its tasty and would make a great snack for during a game or movie night. I did use russet potatoes(its what I had on hand), extra cheese and topped with sour cream and sliced green onions.

Honey Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
This is very good, and very easy to make. I did marinate my chicken in some soy sauce, teriyaki sauce, chili garlic sauce, and ginger before cooking it. Also I added one scrambled egg. Thanks for the recipe.

Creamy Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
Ok this is really good. With some changes. The amount of pasta is way to little, I used about a pound of pasta. The cream cheese needs to be softened before you put it in the pan. It will incorporate much easier. I added extra milk since it was really thick as is. I also added minced garlic, zucchini, fresh mushrooms instead of canned, carrot sticks,onions, and tomatoes. I didn't have any red bell pepper so I just used green. And since I added extra milk I used extra parm. I topped it with diced tomatoes and green onions. Very tasty recipe. Thanks.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2011
Yum! This is really good. I doubled the recipe and added the honey slowly, I couldn't find anchovy paste so I left it out. Let it sit in the fridge for a few hours before using and the flavor was really perfect. Thanks!

Pumpkin Bars II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
These are very good. Super easy to put together. I left out the raisins since my family doesn't like them next time I will add walnuts. I did think that the frosting was a bit to sweet. I think I'll double the cream cheese next time. Thanks for the recipe.

Zucchini Delight

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
This was a pretty good side dish. It served 5 of us as a side. I layered the zucchini and onions then added the tomatoes on top. I would recommend draining the tomatoes because it had a lot of liquid in it by the time it was done cooking. I used canned tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano. And used provolone cheese, its what I had on hand. Thanks for the recipe.

Tricia's Fantastic Fudge Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Really good. I did add a pinch of salt to the flour mix. Definitely use the chocolate chips, I used mini ones. I cut the recipe in half and got 3 4inch tarts out of it. Which was perfect since we were not going to eat a whole pie. Served with vanilla ice cream. Yum.
