Honey and Rosemary Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2013
Absolutely delicious. We tend to stay away from too-sweet sweet potato recipes. The honey adds a touch of sweet, but it's deliciously savory. The key is to cook it long enough to get the chewy, caramelized bits. It also works great with squash. I used it with delicata tonight and had amazing results (I think I like it better than the sweet potatoes!).

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
Very simple, easy-to-follow recipe. Great one for adding your own touch. As is, I think it's a bit bland. I used two cans of tuna, upgraded the cheese to smoked gouda (tasty and melts beautifully), and used a cup of whole milk instead of the evaporated milk. Also, I used french fried onions instead of potato chips.

Winter Squash Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2011
Great flavor and texture. A good way to work more seasonal veggies into your meals. I made these for Thanksgiving and they were a hit! I think it's worth noting that the recipe makes way more than 12 servings, though. I cut the recipe in half and still filled a 9x13 pan with 12 dinner rolls!

Acorn Squash Slices

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
Easy way to make squash. I didn't think leaving the peel on was a problem at all -- the soft, cooked flesh just pulls away from it. I did think it was a little sweet, though. Next time I would use a bit less syrup.

Simple Garlic and Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
Made this without the chili powder, using fresh organic basil and garlic from this week's CSA box. Amazing!

Kim's Stir-Fried Ginger Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Very easy and tasty. The only thing I needed to change with this recipe was to increase the amounts because I had 1.4 lbs. of chicken thighs to work with (I prefer thighs to breasts in stir fry). I also threw in some fresh chopped asparagus to add some veggies to our meal. Turned out great. Even my 14-month-old loved it. It's nice to have some recipes on here that use coconut oil. It is a great, healthy alternative to the more common oils and adds a touch of flavor.

Easy Rum Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Delicious for the holidays. I made it as written -- just made a couple substitutions with what I had on hand. I used pecans and cashews instead of walnuts, and coconut cream pudding instead of vanilla. I used a dark rum from Trinidad. Turned out moist and delicious!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
Excellent! I started to make a chicken pot pie tonight, but realized I didn't have any cream soup (I usually make a quick and easy version!). So, I searched for a recipe that didn't require soup and found this one. Takes a little more time, but it's definitely worth it! I still used a can of mixed vegetables in place of the fresh veggies and it turned out fine -- probably better with fresh, though. The whole family loved it! Edited to add that I've probably used this recipe a dozen times now. Using fresh veggies definitely makes it better. And it's absolutely perfect for leftovers! After Christmas I made a delightful prime rib pot pie -- just substituted organic beef broth and changed up the seasoning.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2010
Simple and delicious. I doubled it to make a chicken pot pie. Used half butter, half shortening for flavor. And I added a pinch of baking powder to help with the flakiness, but that's just something I do every time I make a pie crust -- I'm sure it's fine without it.

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
Great recipe! I made these this morning for breakfast because I had some fresh blueberries. My husband and my four-year-old loved them! The only change I made was with the flour because I try to use more whole grains. I used one cup of whole wheat flour and 1 1/3 cups of all-purpose flour. They turned out wonderful! The streusel topping was perfect!

Honey Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
I have made three or four different cornbread recipes on this site. This one is my favorite! Very moist and just a touch of sweetness. I didn't have heavy cream, so I substituted with 1/4 c. melted butter and 3/4 c. milk. Turned out great! We'll be making this again -- goes great with the Slow Cooker Chili.

Baked Ziti III

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
I cut the recipe in half and it still filled a 9x9 pan to the top! I took others' suggestion and mixed the sour cream into the noodles. It creates almost a ricotta effect. I used a jar of Trader Joe's Organic Tomato and Basil Marinara and substituted mild Italian sausage for the ground beef. I also used fresh basil from my garden. It turned out pretty good! I'll make it again. I can't imagine making the whole recipe unless I had a LOT of people to feed, though.

Banana Snack Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
This was seriously horrible. I expected so much from it. I think it just had too many ingredients/conflicting flavors.

Veronica's Hot Spinach, Artichoke and Chile Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
Delicious! We added a tad more jalapenos for a bit more heat -- perfect!

Poppy Seed Yeast Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2009
Great recipe. I had to tweak it a bit -- I didn't have any "butter flavor". I'm also not a fan of almond flavor, so I only added a dash of almond extract and made up the difference with vanilla. I used the dough cycle on my bread machine, then baked it in the oven at 350-degrees for 30 minutes. It came out tasting great -- not as sweet as I expected, which was fine with me! -- and surprisingly soft.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2007
This is one of my favorite slow cooker recipes. The only change I make is using 2 Tb. of reduced sodium soy sauce and adding a couple shakes of Worchestershire.
