Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
Here's a little factoid to those who don't know: chick peas are the same thing as garbanzo beans. This recipe is exactly what it claims to be: EASY roasted red pepper hummus. Roasted red peppers add a unique sweet flavor to the beans and tahini, making this a refreshing step away from more traditional hummus. If I could add to this recipe without detracting from the ease of preparation, I would suggest that olive oil be poured over the top as it sets at room temperature prior to serving.

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I find it really annoying that people consistently score recipes based on their own modifications. This recipe is BLAND! The selling point is that it is healthy and simple. Adding a great deal of spice and ingredients (which would increase the prep time) will make this a lot more complex and exciting, but alone the recipe is simply mediocre.

Scott Hibb's Amazing Whisky Grilled Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
Rad! Despite the long preparation time I found the overall product phenomenal and my BBQ guests did back flips over the results.

Blackberry Pie I

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
This recipe produced a decent pie. The filling was too stiff with flour and the bottom crust came out a little soggy without the egg seal. Still, the presentation was beautiful and my guests thoroughly enjoyed the flavor of the wild berries.

Byrdhouse Spicy Chicken and Peaches

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2008
This recipe is a great way to use up all of my frozen peaches from last summer. It's easy, relatively quick, adaptable for varied tastes and pretty unique! I put it on rice, rice noodles or eat it alone. I think I'll add cashews next to see how it tastes with a little crunch. Thanks for the great recipe!

Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
The flavor was exactly what one would expect from the title, a complementary mix of heat and natural sugars. The soft texture of the boiled sweet potatoes added a point of interest to the dish. The sauce, however, was a little too thin, even after adding corn starch and simmering for a bit longer. Still overall a great Spring meal!

Dreamy Nighttime Drink

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
The drink as is tasted like chai flavored milk. However, this warm, mildly spiced drink coupled magically with some peach jam thumbprint cookies and although we weren't sleepy after consuming this snack, we were very satisfied!

Pebber Nodder (Danish Christmas Cookies)

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
Very edible little bites that are a great filler cookie for holiday plates. The unique bite of the cardamom makes them almost refreshing and very easy to pop into your mouth one after the other. I think they are versatile enough to merit the addition of a wide variety of tasty decorations. The one change I suggest after making the recipe several times is baking them an additional two minutes to make the outside of the cookie just a touch more crispy without betraying the soft shortbread insides.

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
I was disappointed. This made quite a bit of soup that I'm not sure what to do with. It essentially amounted to a vat of shredded chicken in thin tomato broth. Smothering it with tortilla chips and sour cream added a touch of life.

Asparagus Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
I substituted fat free evaporated milk for the cream and added less than a cup of swiss. The taste combination was flavorful, but dated; I rated this at three stars because I felt as if I time warped to the 70's through my mouth.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
Less butter, simmer longer to thicken, follow the rest and this recipe is the best!

Eggplant Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
I tried this recipe as an attempt to recreate a dish I enjoyed at a friend's home. The oil amount was not nearly enough to properly cook the eggplant through prior to baking, resulting in dry, stiff layers of eggplant. I wouldn't recreate this without adding more oil during the fry process and cutting out some of the contrasting and busy flavors.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
A taste of home! I didn't have bullion or chicken broth, but the Yukon gold potatoes, slightly increased amount of chopped ham and one hour simmer time seemed to still yield a delicious soup that matches the description of the recipe author and other reviewers. Thank you for this, my new favorite potato soup recipe.

Delilah's Frosted Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
Thank you for this classic and simple sugar cookie recipe! My Halloween cookies disappeared faster than the adult punch did. I made no changes to the recipe, it was lovely as is.
