Granola Bars II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2007
Way too sweet, moist, and chewy to be called a granola bar. Try another recipe. Also, beware that this makes a large amount!

No Tomato Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
Making this from scratch (boiling the carrots and beets) was a lot of work and it just tasted weird! I could definitely taste the red wine vinegar, and it didn't taste at all like tomatoes. The only saving grace were the onions and italian seasoning. Still, it is edible.

Patty's Mashed Turnips

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
A good, basic recipe. I left out the milk and it was still a bit watery. Easy, one pot dish.

Basil Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2007
I used way too much pepper because I had less than 2 lbs brussels sprouts, but the end result was nice and hearty.

Apple Pumpkin Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2007
Very yummy muffins but the pumpkin taste does not come through much. I made mine with half white sugar/brown sugar and it was good.

Butterscotch Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
You don't need the butterscotch topping for this to be good. The crust came out excellent, and I used whole wheat pastry flour.

Magic's Green and White Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
Make sure to save the broth & garlic the chicken simmered in. I had to add 1/2 a box of chicken broth on top of the broth that I saved. This was AMAZING. (I left out the curry-- didn't have any).

Chocolate Chip Cookies VI

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2007
This recipes was a good idea but needs some tweaking. For one, it is overly sweet. I think next time I would cut the sugar and use some brown sugar instead of white. The cookies have a nice flavor otherwise and a cakey consistency but they are very filling. I used slightly more chips than called for and that was good if not too chocolatey.

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
Like others I had problems with the dough being too wet. To be fair though, I made some substitutions to the flours called for.

Pumpkin Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
This is quite yummy... but even with 1/2 the sugar I felt like I was eating a dessert.

Authentic Mexican Tortillas

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Good. A bit pasty, I'll experiment with some other options, but this is a good start. My tortillas got better as I went along because I learned 1) don't roll out super thin 2) dont' try to cook them so they are brown and toasted looking- just until they get started looking a bit golden (cooking too long dries them out) 3) instead of covering them with a dishtowel, allow each tortilla to briefly cool on a plate before placing in a ziploc bag containing a moist paper towel (you will melt the plastic if you put them directly in off the griddle). I used lard.

A Baker's Secret for Bread Machines

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2008
I used butter instead of lard and think I halved the salt and tossed in some brown sugar. The loaf was pretty tasteless and fell a bit on top (too much moisture) but it had the best texture of any loaf I've made, so I'll have to study the recipe and see if I can make this basic recipe taste better.

Sweet and Tangy Sauteed Collard Greens

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
The vinegar/honey flavoring is way too strong, and this recipe calls for a lot of butter. The overall taste is just weird. I definitely will not make this again.

English Muffin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Easy, and the recipe seems pretty forgiving. I used a mix of all purpose flour, bread flour, and whole wheat flour and it came out great.

Potato Leek Soup III

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
This was so good! And reminded me of soup I've had in Ireland and not found at restaurants here in the states. However, I made some modifications to the recipe both on purpose and by accident. 1) Used more leeks, added some cloves of garlic 2) only had 1/3 of the broth it called for, so I used water in place 3) forgot to add the cream until very near the end, just heated it up again and served. Also, I had some other root vegetables hanging around, so my version had 2 parsnips and a sweet potato in it. The leeks and butter really contribute most of the flavor, though, regardless of other ingredients. I've read online that potato leek soup can be frozen, so I will try freezing some of the leftovers for a tasty dinner later on.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2007
This is a fantastic every day bread recipe that can be modified as needed. It comes out moist and pretty fluffy, though still hearty like homemade bread should be! I added honey and used whole wheat bread flour (with 1 T gluten added per cup flour) and it came out very nice. I will try upping the oats next time to give it a little more crunch as they really do disappear into the bread.

French Brioche

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
This came out AMAZING and was so easy because I cooked it from start to finish in the bread machine with additional yeast. I was afraid the recipe might be too big so I cut it to 10 servings using 1 1/2 tsp yeast. The flavor and texture is wonderful and will make awesome french toast in the morning. :)

Stir-Fried Vegetables with Chicken or Pork

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
Very basic Chinese take-out taste, too heavy on the soy sauce for my liking.

Cocoa Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Way too salty and oily! I think problem #1 is that the pudding mix has its own salt in it. The pudding mix also gave a grittiness to the cookies (as well as a moist consistency, the only aspect I liked). I will stick to more traditional chocolate chip cookie recipes from now on.

Pasta with Greens N Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
Pretty easy, satisfying, and functional. You only need a little bit of sausage for flavor as the beans provide enough protein and bulk on their own.
