Curried Shrimp Au Gratin

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2013
Used brown rice, a whole onion finely chopped, and 8oz sliced mushrooms instead of the celery. Did not use any sugar. At the end, I mixed rice, sauce, and shrimp all together before putting in the baking dish. The flavor was quite mild, so next time I will do as other reviewers and double the curry. All in all it was tasty! *Update* Was making this dish tonight for the third time and decided to sub quinoa for the rice. We really liked it, and I will use the quinoa in place of the rice from now on-so much more nutritious for you! I also have upped the curry to a rounded TBS.

Banana Cake II

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2013
This cake is pretty good. I mainly chose to make it because I had 3 small/med. over ripe bananas I needed to use. When mashed they made exactly 1c. I baked it in a 9x13 pan, and it was done in 30 min. I used all the butter I had in the cake and didn't have any to make frosting. I sprinkled chocolate chips all over the top, a few minutes before it was done, to melt and spread in lieu of frosting. I guess we like it, because there are only 3 of us AND only 3 little pieces left a mere 5 hours later!

Onion Soup Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
Thanks to this recipe I can now make my favorite meatloaf recipe again! I had stopped using store bought dry onion soup mixes; I read the ingredients on the package....I use the Better Than Bouillon Organic Beef Base instead of cubes.

My Favorite Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
This recipe is quite delicious. I substituted brown rice, and that about doubles the cook time. I added 1/2tsp. of salt (plenty, imo), and I used probably closer to 2c. of cheese, because I love cheese. Will definitely make again.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
With added veggies, (I sauteed a whole onion, 3 large carrots, and 4 celery stalks), it's a 5 star! I also added some Trader Joes 21 seasoning. Thick, creamy, and delish!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
I used pinto and black beans, frozen corn, and substituted chicken stock for the beer. Served it topped with sharp cheddar, crushed tortilla chips, avocado slices, and sour cream. Very tasty!

Cinnamon Swirl Bundt Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
This coffee cake is wonderful. After greasing the pan I sprinkled it with sugar; more appealing than flour. I use a brand of sour cream that is super thick so the batter could not be poured the way the instructions say to. I just dropped by spoonfuls around the pan and lighty spread to even. The batter only fills the pan 1/2 way, but it rises nice and high to fill the whole pan. I, like some other reviewers, baked at 350 for 45 min. It came out perfect.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
These are so good! I used all butter. I must have made my cookies a little bigger because I got just over 3 dozen. Perfectly done at 8 min. A reviewer said to test baking soda in water to see if it's good to use, but it should say to test it in vinegar. You test baking POWDER in warm water. Baking soda in water doesn't do much of anything.

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
These are insanely good! I doubled the cinnamon, and increased the salt to 1 tsp to give it more of of carmel/sea salt flavor. We can't stop eating them!!

Easy Shepherd's Pie with Garlic Romano Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
I omitted the diced tomatoes and used a 10oz package of frozen mixed veggies. Good, yummy comfort food. The recipe fit perfectly into a 7x11 glass baking dish.

Corn Tortilla Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2012
I also used chorizo and reduced each cheese by 1/2. I wouldn't say it was delicious, but it was good.

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
Excellent recipe. Super quick and easy to put together. Followed it exactly except I used a 1/3c batter for each pancake; It was at least 24 pancakes, maybe a little more, I can't remember! The batter is spongy and on the thicker side, but the pancakes turn out light and fluffy.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
These are good because cookies are good. A nice basic chocolate chip cookie. Quick and easy to throw together. I used a TBS cookie scoop and got 2 doz. cookies out of the recipe. If you don't want crunchy cookies keep the bake time to 15 min. max.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
This recipe is wonderful! I cut the chicken into bite size pieces, dredged in flour, and cooked in coconut oil; I NEVER use vegetable oil. At first I was tempted to cut the honey amount in 1/2, but I was really glad I used the full amount; it was perfect. I served it over brown rice, and it would have been nice if the rice had more sauce so next time I will double that.

Bacon-y Bok Choy

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
I used regular bok choy, kept all the bacon fat in the pan, and used no olive oil. I cooked the white parts of the bok choy till they were barely tender and then added the green parts. I forgot to mince garlic before I started so I just added some garlic powder when it was almost done cooking. Very delicious!

Cajun Shrimp Orecchiette

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
Decent dish, but I agree with other reviewers about it being bland. I don't like a lot of spice usually, but this amount you could barely get a sense it was even there. I added more cajun seasoning plus a little salt, to taste, before I served it. I liked how quick it came together (after you're done with all the chopping), however, I would recommend playing around with the seasoning!

Breakfast Casserole I

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
This was really good. I had to sub swiss cheese and a dijon mustard, but that's what I think is great about this recipe, it's easy to adapt to whatever you have on hand. I cut a few slices of a whole wheat batard, tore the slices into pieces, and then mixed all the ingredients in a bowl. I also cut the recipe in 1/2 so I only baked 40 min. Will definitely make again.

Pumpkin Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
Yummy! I love anything with pumpkin. I freeze the pumpkin puree in ice cube trays, and then put the frozen pumpkin cubes in freezer bags. Makes it really easy for just 1 or 2 servings. When I want a smoothie I just toss in a few cubes, and add the rest of the ingredients to the taste and consistency I like.

Baked Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
This is a very good, solid recipe. I used organic apricot preserves and organic French dressing from Whole Foods. I couldn't find a dry onion soup mix there, so I bought a pkg. of french onion dip mix. I also used free-range chicken. I think because there are so few ingredients, the quality matters! Served with rice and green beans. Yum.
