Blueberry Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
This was a lovely dessert. The lemon adds a bright note to the blueberries - one of my favorite flavor combinations. It was a little too runny, though, even after completely cooling. I would definitely make it again, but I would add a little more thickening agent next time.

Big Smokey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Got some organic, grass-fed, fresh ground sirloin at the local "farmer's market" store (great sale) and decided to make these for the kids. I left out the chipotle peppers and wrapped them in a slice of bacon for extra juice/flavor, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. They were excellent burgers, and the liquid smoke gave them a nice smoky flavor, especially helpful with a gas grill. I like that they didn't use eggs or bread crumbs like a lot of the other burger recipes, so they were true burgers, not meatloaf. Toasted some chewy rolls, grated the Cheddar over the burgers, added a little spicy mustard, served them with grilled corn on the cob, and we were happy eaters.

Hoe Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Added about 1/3 c. flour and let it sit a bit to thicken as suggested, and was pleasantly surprised at how good these were. Served them with a bean soup. They reminded me of the cornmeal mush my Grandma used to make when I was a kid. My daughter ate one with syrup and really liked it that way, too. My parents ate with us, and dad asked for the leftovers!

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2010
Easy comfort food meal that the kids really enjoy. I've made this several times, but had forgotten about it until my kids reminded me! I always double the gravy, and make 4-6 patties instead of 8. We usually serve it with garlic mashed potatoes and a green veggie.

Scalloped Potatoes and Onions

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
Loved this! Used a small amount of skim milk because I didn't have quite enough chicken broth, and added a little shredded cheddar on top right at the end. Also used light sour cream instead of mayonnaise, just to use it up before vacation. Will definitely make this again.

Hash Brown Casserole III

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
There was too much liquid, and it was rather bland. I think it could be tweaked to be better (less liquid, some fresh herbs), but as written, it's just okay. On the plus side, it wasn't made with a canned "cream of" soup.

Arroz con Leche

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I helped my daughter make this for a Social Studies assignment on Caribbean cuisine. This was the dessert after jerk pork, fried plantains and black beans made with sofrito (yum). It had a good flavor, but the kids thought it was better for breakfast the next morning.

Soda Cracker Cookies

Reviewed: May 25, 2010
My daughter wanted to make something sweet and I didn't want to head to the store, so we thought she could try these. She had to be coaxed a bit because of the crackers, but I'd had something like this before and convinced her to try it. Then her brothers complained about the nuts, so she ended up leaving those out and using 1/2 butter and 1/2 peanut butter for the nutty taste. They were easy, quick and very good. She was so excited that they turned out well, as she rarely ever cooks anything. We gobbled them up quickly. If you like salty and sweet together (we do), you'll like this.

Toasted Pecan Butter

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
Really good! We'll be making this again for an upcoming family breakfast -- it would top pancakes or any breakfast breads beautifully.

Cuban Black Beans I

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
As part of a social studies assignment, the kids made these beans as their recipe from Cuba. We left out the hot green chile peppers because we were using a sofrito that was a little spicy. The only other change we made was that we used less balsamic because it seemed like a lot. We loved this! It was our favorite of all the Caribbean dishes we made. Thanks for sharing!

Sofrito

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
As part of a social studies assignment, the kids tried several different recipes from the Caribbean. We made this with our black beans and it was so good, we saved the extra to use with some other dishes. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

Jamaican Jerk Dry Rub

Reviewed: May 7, 2010
The kids used this for pork loin chops as part of a social studies assignment where they had to make recipes from the Caribbean (scaled way down). It is hot, but very good. We made pineapple salsa to go with it and balance the heat. I think I'm going to make a batch to keep on hand.

Easy and Elegant Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
Prepared this just as the recipe was written, and found it to be good, but the meat itself didn't have a ton of flavor. It did look nice! I think it would need the marinating that some of the reviews suggest to make it 5 stars.

Brown Eyed Susans

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
The kids tried these. They were okay, but not really brown eyed Susans. I noticed that most people who rated higher had to change something to do so.

Brown-Eyed Susans II

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
These were good cookies, but needed to be pulled out of the oven sooner than the time stated in the recipe. Also, I am subtracting one star because the directions are insufficient and do not tell you when to add all the ingredients listed. I omitted the pecans, because my kids don't like them in cookies, otherwise followed the recipe pretty closely.

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2010
The kids wanted pasta, and this was a nice change from their usual request - spaghetti. I had some Chicken Sweet Italian Sausage from the farmer's market store nearby I wanted to use up, plus a box of whole grain bowties. I left out the red pepper flakes because of the kids, but otherwise followed the recipe pretty closely. We really enjoyed this, and it was quick and easy, which is always a plus on busy weeknights.

Slow Cooker Fruit, Nuts, and Spice Oatmeal

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2010
I'm giving this four stars because even though there are some problems with this oatmeal as written, the idea and basic recipe are great. However, I had to use LOTS more liquid. I checked it just a couple of hours into the cooking time and it was already turning into an oatmeal cake! A quick internet search let me know that the ratio of oats to liquid should have been more like 1:3 or even 1:4. Also, I put my slow cooker on the "Keep Warm" setting and it was still a bit too done, i.e., the oats and fruit were a bit too mushy. I didn't use any nuts either, as I did not think I would care for them after cooking in liquid so long. I left out the butter, too, because I just felt it was unneeded. I had already given my crock a quick coat of cooking oil spray to keep the oatmeal from sticking. On the upside, with these adjustments and because it's so very good for us, I liked this and I will make it again. Thanks!

Chocolate Cobbler

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2010
Took AnnesGazFam's advice and reduced butter to 2 T. and used a little more cocoa. It turns into a brownie-like cake with its own hot fudge sauce. It was very good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. There was a grain or two of undissolved sugar in the sauce, but otherwise, it was excellent. My son actually made it with minimal supervision, except for pouring the boiling water and the actual baking. Easy, quick, old-fashioned yumminess!
