Slow Cooker Kielbasa and Beer

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
I don't think the beer really did anything amazing to the kielbasa. It tasted like sausage and sauerkraut to me.

Octoberfest German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
very good. Next time I will chop the onion very fine and use a little less onion so as not to have the "oniony bite"

Bavarian Apple Torte

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
I just baked this and man it is nice. It looks like I paid $20 for it at a bakery. I used an 11" tart pan because that's what I have, and I have to say, this worked out great. Baked for the recipe's minimum recommended time and it set just fine, isn't runny or anything. The crust was so easy to make, I just stirred it up with my hand. For a beautiful presentation it is so worth the effort to arrange the apple slices neatly "It's not a work of art it's food," no it's a work of art.

Carrot and Ginger Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Good creamy soup even without adding any cream to it. I felt like it needed some curry powder. I loved it with curry!!!

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
Really tasty side dish and a great way to eat sweet potatoes. Thanks for sharing this great idea. I just wish they were crispy on the outside. If anyone knows how to make them crispy on the outside, please share!

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
I followed the recipe: The batter did not blend, there was not enough liquid to completely stir the flour mixture into the liquid mixture, and the result was a crumbly dry batter. After baking, the crumbles remained and the batter was still a little dry, not the consistency of a "moist brownie." Didn't anyone else think there was too much salt? They taste salty and I think the recipe called for too much. Next time, I will modify the recipe to add more liquid (egg, applesauce) and use less salt. With those modifications, it should be a pretty good brownie recipe!

Annemarie's Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
These are good, but I will keep looking. The bottom layer crust reminds me too much of shortbread. I am looking for something that tastes like the lemon bars I had in the past with a lighter crust. TIP: If you make them ahead, say to bring to a party, do not dust with powdered sugar until the last minute or the sugar may dissolve into the lemon, especially if there is a temperature change.

Nanaimo Bars III

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
I cut out an entire cup of confectioners sugar in the middle layer, it was NOT missed, and I highly recommend freezing them. OK, this is strange but, at first I thought they were WAY too rich and sweet. So I cut them into small portions and wrapped them and put them in the freezer. After they were frozen I think they were somehow much better. It is the middle of summer and very hot here, so maybe they needed a blast of cold (They are from the NorthWest after-all). They didn't become too hard to bite and were so much better from the freezer. So I put some into tupperware, brought them to work, kept them in the freezer all morning, brought them out right after lunch, and people were like, "OMG What are these, is this fudge, this is soooo good, what is it?!"

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2009
These are very good and they are easy to grill. I made sure to keep adding bread crumbs until they were nice and solid. I also took the advice of others and drained out any liquid from the beans and vegies.

Tomato Spiral Toss

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
Delicious and full of basil flavor. Taking the advice of others, I heated up the olive oil with a splash of red wine vinegar, then add in garlic, saute, add in basil and tomato a pinch of Italian seasoning, and a pinch of crushed pepper flakes, salt and pepper, heat through...viola. Add to the cooked pasta, stir, eat.

Peach Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2009
good muffins... Using less sugar is always an option and I found that using just under 2 cups was plenty sweet. I cut back on oil too, and used some water and added a splash to make it mix better in the end. The peaches do release juices when they are baking so don't worry if the batter seems thick, it's not. Thanks again. Also added a dash of ground ginger and a splash of vanilla extract
