Bird Seed Energy Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
Like several others, I used half oil, half applesauce to cut the fat some. I also split the batter in half and added peanut butter and chocolate chips to one half (for the kids), and chopped cranberries without chocolate chips to the other half (for me). They taste great, with a nice chewy/crunchy texture, and make a very healthy and satisfying snack. If you're looking to replace those chemical-preservative filled bars from the supermarket, these are a good alternative.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
Excellent recipe! These were easy to put together, and tasted great. I cut back a bit on the adobo sauce, but otherwise followed the recipe ingredients for the marinade and dressing exactly. I only marinated the fish for about 30 minutes - in 6-8 hours it would be ceviche. The sauce had a mild heat that was just a bit smoky, and the lime gave it a bright note. (Note: Don't make the dressing ahead of time, because after a few hours, it becomes "soured" and bitter - probably the combination of acid from the limes and the sour cream.) I served it on doubled warm corn tortillas, with a little chopped white onion, cabbage and cilantro on top. With pico de gallo and black beans, these made a lovely meal. Thanks for sharing!

Slow-Cooked Pork Barbecue

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
I had most of a pork tenderloin leftover from a "buy one, get two free" sale at the grocery store, and decided to try this for a quick dinner after a busy day. The meat was tender and juicy, not chewy or stringy, which I find happens sometimes in the slow cooker. It had a light barbecue tanginess, but the underlying cola taste didn't work that well for me. It wasn't awful, but a little too strong. Next time, I will add more sauce and a lot less cola, or maybe just leave it out altogether. I've never cared for the recipes that cook ham in cola, so I probably should have known better. My kids really enjoyed it, though. We will definitely do this again. Thanks for a quick (took about 5 minutes to get it going) and easy, tasty recipe!

Easy Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
This was good, but needed a little something more. I wanted to use up some brown rice, so I thought I'd try this one. It looked like it was too saucy, so I only used about 1/2 the tomato sauce called for. I also ended up leaving out the kidney beans when I realized the can I picked up at the store was actually chili beans! After tasting, I ended up adding onion, a finely diced jalapeno and a little red pepper, plus some cumin. Then it was great!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
My kids like chimis, but I rarely make them because of the fat in frying them. Saw this and thought it was worth trying. Well, they turned out nice and crisp! I left out the corn (family preference) and cut way back on the taco sauce. I also added more cumin and spices, but otherwise stuck to the recipe. Definite kid pleaser!

'Calabacitas Guisada' (Stewed Mexican Zucchini)

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
We really liked this. I added petite frozen sweet corn, like some other reviewers, and that was good, too. I'm sure I'll make this again. Thanks, NSS!

Asparagus Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
Very good! Cooked the asparagus and bacon ahead of time, and made the pie shell, then just mixed up the eggs and put it together for quick bunch prep. Great recipe!

Smoky Chicken Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I made this to add to the New Year's Eve spread last night, and was surprised at how good it was. The smoked almonds add a nice crunch - just using liquid smoke is not going to give you the same effect. Plus, it's very easy to prepare in the mini food processor, which is always great when you're making lots of different dishes.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Went to review these, and was surprised to see that I'd made these before. I had decided that next time I would soak the graham cracker crumbs in the melted butter for a bit first, because I don't care for the little bit of crunchiness they give the peanut butter layer (and I ground them finely in the food processor). Well, I guess I'll try that the third time I make them! Kids really like them, though.

Peach Custard Pie III

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
We liked this pie, and the fact that it wasn't too bad fat- and calorie-wise for a slice of pie. Sweetness was just right. Used another reviewer's suggestion of brushing the unbaked pie shell with egg - baked crust was perfect, not soggy at all.

Oat Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2009
Used cinnamon applesauce and vanilla yogurt and only one egg. Good muffins and nice source of fiber. Could use a little more flavor, maybe by adding more spices or some dried fruits and nuts.

Johnny's Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
I usually make the J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits from this site, but decided to try these tonight to go with a pot of beef stew (my own recipe). I was worried at first because the dough was so wet, but there was nothing to be concerned about. They were fluffy and soft on the inside with just a tiny bit of crispiness on the outside. I thought they were better than J.P.'s! I will be using this recipe from now on.

Classic Thanksgiving Dressing With Parsley, Sage and Thyme

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
My mother usually makes the dressing for our Thanksgivings, but she was out of town this year, so I tried this one. It's very close to the simple, yet delicious one she makes. It was good, but I had to add more liquid (turkey stock). As is, it was on the dry side. I also thought it needed more sage/seasonings, so I threw in some extra. However, overall, this is an easy, yummy dressy that's great for those of us who are not dressing "experts" like Mom!

Orange Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
I thought this was a great brine, and I would use it again. I've brined my turkeys for years now, but I generally use a little more Kosher salt to the amount of liquid (it doesn't make it "salty"), and this turkey was not quite as moist. Next time, I'll just add a little more Kosher salt. Thanks!
