Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
This really is the best! I added two ripe bananas & some vanilla to the wet mixture, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. They don't look as pretty as other pancakes but taste a million times better!

Bagels I

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Nice & chewy with a great flavor. They were easy to make and tasted better than store-bought bagels. This recipe would have made a large dozen and we prefer mini-bagels, so I cut the dough into 18-20 pieces and made most smaller. I cooked the smaller ones in water 2 minutes on each side with the same bake time as the larger and all turned out perfectly! Yum!!

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Easy, tasty hummus! This was my first time using a recipe for hummus (I usually just improvise and add to taste), and it turned out great. It has a nice texture and great strong garlic flavor. I normally add roasted red peppers and will do the same next time since we prefer the taste & color the peppers add. This is a great base recipe & I can't wait to experiment with adding other foods.

Zesty Tilapia with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Simple and tasty. I'll definitely make this again! I used regular sauteed mushrooms and served it with a side of carrots & french cut green beans. Perfect and only 15 minutes start to finish!

Oat Crusted Fish

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
As-is it's pretty bland, it definitely needs something added to the breading. This was the first time I've tried coating in flour before egg & breading and it worked much better than everything I've done in the past. I used tilapia and sole filets and served it with a bourbon honey mustard sauce.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Easy recipe, great for crowds. I scaled it back to 10 servings. I love garlic and put it in everything, but 1/3 cup was overpowering. Next time I'll try 1/4 cup and saute the garlic before adding to the potatoes. The raw garlic was just too much for me, though my guests loved them!

Avocado Shrimp Ceviche-Estillo Sarita

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Delicious! Added 1/2 a red onion instead of a whole white & that was plenty. I used precooked shrimp, otherwise prepared the recipe as written. Served with baked tortilla pieces instead of saltines. This one is a keeper, a good bit of summertime in mid-winter. This did make way more than 4 servings. We served it as an appetizer and 12 people went through about 2/3 of it. Looking forward to having the leftovers later!

Mushroom Sauce Baked Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Delicious! A tasty, filling meal perfect for winter. I seasoned the chops with pepper & season salt, doubled the soup, sauteed fresh mushrooms with the onions, and served it with french cut green beans. Plan on 1 1/2- 2 hours cook time, the potatoes were still raw after the first hour. Next time I may try baking the potatoes by themselves while I prep the chops and sauce, that way I'm not waiting an extra hour to serve.

Butternut Squash Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
The initial risotto was good, leftovers have been even better. This makes a huge batch so plan on eating it for several meals. We added sauteed mushrooms and baby peas, without it may have been too much of the same texture. I added the squash toward the middle/end of the chicken stock and that seemed to work well, otherwise I think it would have taken much longer for the rice to cook. Use a huge pan when making this, our biggest was overflowing!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

The best pumpkin cookies! Soft, spicy, flavorful.. perfect! I made them without icing, they're sweet enough.

Blueberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2009
Great flavor combination, perfect for summer. We already had a raspberry vinaigrette, so we used that over spinach, butter crunch lettuce from our garden, and topped it with pecans, blueberries, and crumbled feta. Absolutely delicious and done in 10 minutes. Yum!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
No need to try out any other recipes, I'll be using this one over & over.. I made one loaf, regular sized muffins, and mini muffins and each turned out great. The versatility is a big plus. I did add chopped walnuts and the flavor is fantastic. My apartment smells great and my husband decided we're having muffins for dinner.

Italian Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2008
This made a great summer dinner when we didn't want something heavy. The dressing is delicious! We didn't have an onion so I omitted that, but added chopped grape tomatoes, sugar snap peas, and cooked shrimp. Next time we'll try chicken instead.

Ginger-Lime Chicken with Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
This was a great dinner, and very easy!! The coconut rice (which I made with brown rice) was excellent. In the future I'll make it with one lime instead or marinate it for just 15 minutes, it was a little too acidic for me. Overall it was great! I agree with others that the ingredients are best when eaten in the same bite.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2008
This is my new favorite! Last time I added peas & carrots rather than celery, & this time I added some paprika as well. I served it with some baking powder biscuits, & my fiancee topped his soup with cheddar. This is by far the best soup I've ever made.

Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
Haven't served it yet but I've tasted enough.. This is my first time making anything with squash, but it was very easy. I did as previous people recommended and cooked the squash halves while I sauteed onions, carrots, apple, and garlic. Once cooked, the squash was easy to scrape from the skin and its softness made blending even easier. It's simmering now (smells great!), and I've added cinnamon, more nutmeg, and paprika. I tried a small amount with curry powder, but I may skip that tonight. I don't think my fiancee will like the pureed texture, so I may add noodles or gnocchi. I'm definately keeping this one in my recipe box!

Stuffed Mushrooms I

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2007
Flavor was good, though not as flavorful as I'd hoped. I forgot the garlic salt, but sprinkled the top with a parmesan/bread crumb mixture. It made more stuffing than we had mushrooms for, so we had the rest on crackers. I think I prefer it as a spread than stuffing for mushrooms.

Baked Haddock

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
I didn't have any bread crumbs, or even corn flakes, so I used crushed flakes from Raisin Bran. Picking out the raisins was an adventure, but definately worth it. I followed the tip to brush the butter on, adding some lime juice to make it interesting. It was absolutely delicious, better than I expected from a thrown together dish. The bran flakes gave it more texture & a good flavor. I just wish I'd made more!
