Coconut Carrots

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
Wow! This was too sweet!!! the person that said "bland" must have used coconut MILK! I liked the idea alot, it kind of reminded us of sweet potatoes. First taste was good, but after a few bites again,just too sweet. My mom used o make me creamed carrot's when I was a kid, I'm thinking that if you made this recipie and then drained (not rinsed) all the creme of coconut and then stirred the carrots into a rue (white sauce) that might be really good!

Pearl Baked Cream Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
Absolutely WONDERFUL!! I have never made nor had anything like this and I couldn't get enough! I brought this to a pot-luck and when I went back for 2nd's I got a little of some of the other things so I wouldn't look like a wierdo getting more of what *I* brought! Very easy and although I tend to change recipies I followed this exactly but did add the crushed garlic croutons on the top like one of the other members suggested. YUMMY!!!

Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Excellent!!! I used 4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts halves. Had all spices except sage, so I used Poultry Seasoning, which had everything in this original recipie and in addition Nutmeg. I substituted 2 tsps of this instead of the, thyme, rosemary sage, marjoram, salt, black pepper. I placed in medium glass cooking dish, covered with foil and cooked at 400 degrees for 35 minutes. Uncovered for the last 10 minutes and then put on broil for 3 additional minutes. Very, very good!!! Served with Sauteed Garlic Asparagus on this website (made with the balsamic vinegar and olive oil that another reader suggested). Thank you! I will for SURE make this again!!!

Cheddar Bacon Hamburgers

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2008
Ok - - MAYBE I'm easy to please, because I've done quite a few 5-star ratings, But this was HONESTLY VERY GOOD! I do NOT like horseradish, but I followed the recipe, but DID go ahead and add a "glop" of A-1. Very moist, very tasty!! Neither hubby or 13 year old needed nor wanted catsup or ANYthing on their burgers!! I'm quadrupling the recipe for a birthday bar-b-q today! Originally served this with a Macaroni & Cheese salad found here on this website.

Aunt Bev's Famous Apple Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
Very very good!!!! I tend to over-complicate things, and when recipies are this simple, I have to add to it - - but I DIDN'T this time!! I stuck with this and the paie turned out WONDERFULLY!! I used 4 Honey Crisps and 4 Granny Smiths... I learned a way back that making a good apple pie is made GREAT when you combine types of apples... cant get much different than these two - but the Honey Crisps are fall and early winter only.... YUMMY!

Sweet and Spicy Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2008
One of the Thanksgiving hits!! I doubled the recipie so I think the "spread" on the cookie sheet was a little thick.. I expected them to be a little more crispy, but I still liked them and got quite a few compliments. My whipped sweet potatoes were still the favorite, but I'll make these again. Thanks for the unique idea!!!

Spaghetti Squash with Pine Nuts, Sage, and Romano

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
ok - -spaghetti squash is just about the COOLEST vegetable ever!!!! I remember my parents making it when I was a child, but in all my 49 years, never had done so myself! This was good, but I didn't have fresh sage so used powdered, and 1/2'd the amount.... I thought it was still just a bit overpowering. There was just myself, husband and 14 year old so there are left-overs. I think I'll add some red peppers flakes as one person suggested for my lunch tomorrow. NOW I'm going to look for more spaghetti squash recipes!!!

Creamy Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
YUM! I have always LOVED split pea soup, but have tried twice to make it only to be disapointed.... not THIS time! I followed the recipie exactly, except I used half and half, since I already had that on hand for hubby's coffee. Thanks so much - Even my 14 year old daughter who SAID she didn't like split pea soup, and continually commented on the "icky" color, had two bowls! heh! I made the Red Lobster biscuits with it. Great winter supper!

Fettuccini with Mushroom, Ham and Rose Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
Holy COW this was good!!! For absolutely SURE I will make this again! Husband and 14 year old daughter agree! I really like spicy food, BUT next time will 1/2 the crushed red pepper. I was out of fresh garlic (again) so dumped (honestly I rarely measure) some garlic powder. I used half and half instead of cream, and served it with grated romano cheese. THANK YOU SO MUCH for this recipie. OH, and I should add that my husband is Italian .... and he had seconds!

Toscana Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
Very good! I also did the bulk sausage, as that is what I remembered from O.G. I got the spicy italian sausauge and hubby and daughter thought it was too spicy. I think next time I'll get the sweet italian sausase FROM MY FAVORITE ITALIAN deli next time (not just the grocery store brand) and add just a bit of red pepper flakes. I read several reviews of this and used 4 small(ish) potatoes, and thickened it a bit with cornstach w/ water. I realized that (maybe I'm wrong??) that when this said 2 TBL chicken stock that it should have been two cubes or 2 Tbl granulated chicken bullion - when I made again, it was EXCELLENT!!!! Because of this addition! I changed from a 4 star to a FIVER!!

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
Don't get me wrong - this IS good, but I have made my mom's traditional recipie for YEARS, and this was definitely different. I LOVE whole wheat bread, but this was just ... different. I doubled the banana after reading reviews (and did the applesauce suggestion from the submitter) I also mixed all wet ingredients then added the flour as one reviewer suggested. I made two loves, the first just according to recipie (and double the banana's) and then after tasting, I made another recipie with just a TOUCH more honey and some cinnamon. Everyone has agreed that the latter was better. I'm in a high altitude, so not sure if that makes a difference, but I cooked for about 60 - 75 minutes and still extremely moist!

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
Easy and excellent! I followed the reviewers suggestions to NOT mix vigorously, but to lightly beat the eggs before adding and then mix until just blended. They didn't last long enough to frost... I'll TRY to get that far next time :-)*UPDATE* have made this 3 more times... never HAVE frosted them! UNDOUBTEDLY one of the recipies that I will make until the day I die! For ME, I do as I said above (I mix everything in the pan that the butter is melted in) double the recipie and cook in a 13x9 pan, at 350 for no more than 25 minutes.. they HAVE to cool or they are just WAYYYYY to mushy - but SERIOUSLY, there is not a good enough word that describes these amazing little chocolate nummies whose recipie I have now committed to memory!!!

Creamy Black Bean Dip

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
Just a little too vinegar-ee for me. I'll make again for sure though and just cut back on the balsamic and increase the chili-powder. I'll update later.
