Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
I called them Mini Spinach Bites when I served them because I baked them in a mini-muffin tin. I did alter the recipe slightly: Used 2 tbls butter to sautee 3/4 cup of chopped onion and 1-2 cloves of garlic. I added the thawed spinach to that for a few minutes, and seasoned with salt and pepper. Then followed the directions to mix it all together (with no extra butter). I used an Italian blend of shredded cheese. These bites are delicious!

Succulent Grilled Peaches with Honey Chevre

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
I used a honey liqueur, so did not add the milk since it was more liquidy already. Yum!

Fresh Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
I added black beans and fresh summer corn off the cob. I did not add sugar b/c my mangos were quite ripe and sweet on their own.

Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
I've never felt the need to add the mayo to this recipe, and it's been my go to spinach artichoke dip for years. So easy and tasty. I have a lot of vegetarian friends, so I tend to leave out the bacon.

Louisiana Crab Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
I halved the recipe but kept the amount of crabmeat the same. Also added Old Bay seasoning to taste (more than a tsp, less than a tbl) and a few more dashes of tabasco. It was a big hit!

Sausage Biscuit Bites

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Really quick recipe for a potluck brunch. You can make it fancy with herbs or seeds on the outside, and the butter on the inside isn't necessary.

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
I cut the recipe in half but kept the same amount of berries, using a mix of blueberries and raspberries. Also followed another's suggestion of using half brown sugar with the white (so 1/2 cup each in the halved recipe) 12 muffins were moist and bursting with berry-deliciousness.

Mixed Berry Trifle

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
Super simple recipe to make. I buy fresh berries when they are in season and this is my go to recipe for them. I hardly ever remember to add the sherry though. Chill the mixing bowl before whipping the cream and it will go much faster!

Slow Cooker Creole Black Beans and Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
I have been making this for years, it's great over some white rice. I tend to only use 1 lb of sausage, and buy the smoked ready-to-use and skip the whole browning step. Assemble the night before, pop the cooker on in the morning and come home to a yummy dinner smelling up the place.

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2009
If I am roasting the peppers in the oven(as opposed to store bought), I add the garlic as well so it gets a sweeter flavor. Also, I use fresh parsley in place of the basil. I add the tahini slowly and taste at intervals as sometimes I feel it overpowers the dip.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
I usually reduce the recipe as I make them for one and don't want them to sit for too long in the freezer. I only use the one can of black beans, and instead of the can of tomatoes just slowly add salsa until it seems the right consistency.

Pesto Cheesy Chicken Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
I took others advice and decided not to roll them. I did wrap a piece of prosciutto around each breast, then topped with pesto and cheese. Baked covered initially, then removed foil for last 10 minutes or so to brown cheese. Served with Garlic Parmesan orzo also on this sight. Such a great meal!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
I am not a baker, but wanted to make a "steak cake" for my bf's 30th surprise party. This recipe was easy to follow and not too intimidating! I just used half the recipe, a hand mixer (with bread dough attachments) and tons of crisco on my hands, the bowl, the counter; basically everything the marshmallow was going to touch. I put it in the fridge overnight and had no trouble rolling it out the next evening. I was just using it as an offwhite, so the slight beige resulting from the vanilla was perfect.

Slow Cooker London Broil

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2009
Super easy! I had a smaller cut of meat (just two of us) so there is lots of leftover gravy to use in another meal. We are not mushroom lovers so I substituted with cream of celery and it was still good. Added some red wine, Worcestershire, onion and parsnips to the crock pot and cooked it all together on low for about 9 hours.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I followed the advice of another poster (ANJOULEME Reviewed on Jan. 1, 2004) and used a greased muffin tin. Cooked at 325 for 25 minutes and they came out perfectly. I also added a tsp of vanilla.
