Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This recipe is a great starting point. I add tons of extra veggies (zucchini, eggplant, mushrooms, spinach) then puree half in the blender, then add it back in to the sauce. I also add a small can of tomato sauce. Delicious way to sneak some extra vegetables onto my boys' plates.

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I made the hummus in my blender which was kind of a pain because of the thickness, but it turned out nice and smooth. I also made my own tahini. Homemade tahini is really quite strong so I think next time I will add a little less, maybe 1/4 cup. Served with home baked pita chips. Overall, it was delicious and didn't last long!

Pleasant Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This had good flavor complexity and I could really smell and taste the bay leaf. My chops were a little thick so I simmered them for about an hour and a half, but they were dry. If I make this again, I will either use thinner pork, or give myself more time, so that the meat can break down. Served with egg noodles and peas.

Original Homemade Italian Beef

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This was so good! My mom said she likes the beef better than pulled pork. I started mine the night before and let it go all the next day. It was perfect. The only change I made was I threw in a sliced onion and toasted some kaiser rolls. I also served it with the option of adding sauteed onions, peppers, and mushrooms. I will definitely make this again.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This is how I roast my cauliflower, but I skip the resealable bag and just toss it all on the baking sheet. I also add the juice of half a lemon for a little kick. Yum!

Black Bean and Corn Salad II

Reviewed: May 27, 2008
This was quite yummy! I did decrease the oil a little, added a green pepper, used the whole bag of corn, and used half of a red onion in place of the green. I had two limes but they didn't produce enough juice so I added a little zest. On the back of the can of black beans there was a similar recipe and it called for red wine vinegar. I thought the dressing needed a little more tang so I added a few splashes. Next time I think I will add a jalapeno. Also, try to make this the same day you are serving it. I made the salad the night before (except for the avocado) and I thought the flavors melded too much. It was a lot fresher tasting right when I made it.

Chicken Enchiladas V

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
I like my enchiladas with more stuff, so I add a can of black beans to the chicken mixture. I also add a second can of green chiles, more chili powder, and a tablespoon of cumin. I also increase the amount of the soup mixture so I can stir more into the filling and spread more on top. It usually ends up being 2 cans of cream of chicken and a whole 16oz container of sour cream. My picky 3 year old actually eats when I make this!

Oatmeal Pancakes I

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
If you are truly looking for "light and fluffy", this is not the pancake for you. They are tasty but dense, even with conservative mixing. I like to add diced up ripe banana (and a handful of walnuts sometimes).

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
I tried this recipe because I had most of the ingredients on hand. I only substituted raisins for the cranberries and added a scoop of peanut butter. I pressed them into a jellyroll pan lined with a silpat. I baked them at 300 for 35 minutes. They were good but too sweet. They taste A LOT like a magic bar. The taste of the sweetened condensed milk really prevailed and it's not something you would expect in a granola bar. Overall, it was easy and yummy but not what I was looking for. I think I'm looking for something with more of a trail mix feel - fruit, nuts, and honey.
