Old Fashioned Onion Rings

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
I read the directions, and then followed them pretty casually. Used beer instead of milk (beer-battered?), and then added some powdered potatoes to the batter. I didn't know how thick the batter should be, so I went with "the thicker the better- more gunk!". I later learned that the thinner batter works better- lighter, crispier, more delicious onion! While I think my rings were pretty successful, making them was such a terrifying experience. When someone else prepares fried foods you don't realize the scope of how unhealthy it is, just deliciousness. I love my occasional share of junk food, though after a few onion rings I just felt really disgusting. Probably good for sharing with many people, though a large serving is just sickening.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
This soup makes a great base for being creative! I added curry, garlic, an apple, replaced the regular potato for 1 sweet. I had baked the squash in the oven prior, and after pureeing all of the soup together I added an extra bit of squash in it's natural form - I think it added a more interesting texture to the soup. I've been eating it with cashew bits mixed in, yummmm !

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
THE MOST AMAZING BANANA BREAD RECIPE EVER. The recipe is very simple and straightforward- the secret to its awesomeness is the huge amount of bananas that go into it! My dad didn't believe that it would take an hour to bake, but it did (there was even a tiny gooey spot in the middle still). I added a couple handfuls of chocolate chips, as well as a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. Most deliciously moist banana-rich banana bread of my life.

Summer Squash Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
I added minced garlic and fresh basil to the squash while cooking, so the flavor was fine. The only reason I have to say that this recipe wasn't so good is that the consistency was all very bland and... mushy. If I would try it again, I would throw in larger bread crumbs, so that they could be crunchy to add more interest

Tuna Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
Versatile, easy, and delicious recipe! I did the recomended doubling of cheese sauce, which had great results. Also, I used frozen green beans, pepper mix, and a leftover cob of corn from the previous night's dinner for my veggies. A few extra spices were thrown in for a boost as well. The tuna could have been doubled, but with my tuna-hating sister in mind I kept to the recipe in that aspect- and she loved it! This recipe was excellent because it can be made from a variety of fresh or frozen products, and comes out great!

Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
Great Recipe! I added upon recomendation some half & half, along with some sugar, a can of corn, and a few other micellanious spices. I was hoping for a more creamy soup, as in texture. However, the tomatos were pretty big chunks, in a watery broth. I pureed about 2/3 of the soup, and it made a much nicer consistency.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2007
I was not able to follow the recipe exactly, though mine turned out delicious! I was only able to use all-purpose flour, and for the oat bran I used whole raw oats. I didn't have any blueberries either, so I used a cup of craisins instead. This recipe is easy to alter, and turned out great!

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2007
Excellent Recipe! Upon recomendation, I added a Sweet Potato (Cubed, uncooked) with the tomatos and it turned out great! I also added a good amount of Cumin, which also added a nice flavor. I wasn't sure how thick the soup should be, though I made it pretty chunky and it was very good, like a stew! It had a strong peanut taste, which I have mixed feelings on. While it was VERY good, in some ways it reminded me of oatmeal (consistency, peanut butter). All in all, a GREAT recipe!
