Peach Whirligigs

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
These are great! I don't like cinnimon rolls with white sugar so subbed brown sugar and added a little lemon juice to the peach mixture. I was dubious that 1 min of boiling would give a proper consistancy so I boiled way longer than that. When it was the texture I wanted I poured in a greased pan. Also~ it was too sweet, but I don't know why some reviews are being so picky about that! It's fruit! Every piece will have a different sweetness level and astandard measurement will NEVER work for a fuit pie/cobbler/pie. You need to sample as you cook. I started at 1/2 c. Of sugar and worked up from there. I did forget to factor in the sugar from the cinnamon roll so it was a little too sweet for us. Also, next time I will do a rough chop on the peaches. I am wondering now if a can of peaches in heavy syrup could be boiled until thick and used as an lazy ice cream topper.

Vegetable and Tofu Stir-fry

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
This is a nice sweet & sour stir fry. Great way to use up veggies (I did cabbage, carrots, & celery). I like to add extra ginger to the sauce mix & let it boil with it. I want to try using orange juice instead of water too. Not as good as take out, but better than a lot of the stir frys I have made :o)

Southern Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
I love cabbage, but didn't care for this. Greasy and bland. I don't do bacon, so left that out (which I always do on recipes & usually the food is still amazing... not so with this one). Don't like to waste food so I'll figure out a way to make this edible... maybe red pepper & garlic.

Brussels Sprouts and Barley Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
So many of my favorite veggies & nutrient super stars are in this soup! I figured it would be tasty. However, the sodium content is alarming: over 1,100 miligrams per serving!!! Not cool! So I altered the cooking method to bring out more flavor sans sodium. I used frozen turnips with greens & added celery. I sauted onion, celery, carrots, and a bay leaf in a tsp of oil. Then added the other veggies and about 3 Tbls of roughly chopped garlic. Sauted a about 10 min. Then added 12 cups of water and 4 Tbls of Better than Boullion (which brought the sodium to over 2,400 miligrams for the whole pot, or 240 per serving). I cooked the barley on the side to save time and skipped the flour/butter to save calories and because I prefer a brothy soup. Hearty, filling, and, with a few modifications, healthy!

Old-Fashioned Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2011
Best potato soup I've ever had! I didn't have parsley and added celery. Thyme in potato soup is new to me, but soooo good. I think this is the ONLY thing I've cooked and not added garlic to. It's perfect without it.... never thought I would say that about anything lol. Seriously AWESOME!

Easy Microwave Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Make this! The taste needs minor work, more cocoa & vanilla for sure and probably chocolate chips. But the texture is spot on and it's sooooo easy.

Marshmallow Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
Easiest recipe ever especially if you use microwave popcorn and melt the butter & marshmallows in a big microwave safe bowl. I used the holiday gingerbreadman marshmallows with a splash of vanilla and cinnamon. Perfect!

No Bake Cookies V

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
Love theses! I'd forgotten all about no bake cookies, I bet it's been 15 years since I've had them. Just like I remembered. I added 2 extra tbls of cocoa. Perfect! I over boiled a bit so my cookies weren't dropping by he spoonful... I rolled them and they turned out fine. Yum! So rich!!!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
Well~ those 16oz frozen bags of broccoli only have 4 cups in them so this turned into "Best Cream of What-needed-to get-used-up." So I had those 4 cups, 1 cup of fresh broccoli, 1 cup of cauliflower, and 1 1/2 cups of frozen peas. It tastes pretty good actually. You would never know it wasn't just broccoli. I liked this because it wsas super easy and very cheap to make. I didn't love it because it's bland and should have garlic or cheese or something. And the texture is off. Don't blend all of the broccoli and don't cook the milk/flour until "thick" or you will get broccoli pudding! Stop when it's like a sauce, before it gets to a gravy consistancy and it will better. But I liked it enough to make again and change the things I didn't like.

Split Pea Soup without Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
Fantastic! Nice & low calorie too. I added a little onion and thyme. Next time I will add way more carrots because I love them! I subbed veggie broth over chicken.

Spinach and Gorgonzola Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Pretty good! I did an ingredient search & this popped up. I thought it sounded like a yummy hot dip. So I melted everything together. That was good, but the leftovers straight from the fridge was good too. So it can go either wayy.

Oma's Cottage Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Wow~ this could easily be a 5 star recipe for me with minor changes. I made the cheesecake as written, but skipped the crust (not a fan or them!). It was really good. A little heavy on the flour for me though. It's soooo much cheaper to make than a real cheesecake! Next time I will double the recipe, but keep the flour & milk at these measurements and bake in a 9 springform pan. As written the texture is a little too airy, but I think reducing the milk & flour will fix that.

Tomato Barley Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Very easy! It tastes really good for such a simple ingredient list. I used all fresh tomatoes and vegetarian broth then added a pinch of salt and more pepper. It's filling comfort food, but also very light. Next time I will probably put the tomatoes through the blender before I cook them because I like a slightly thicker broth. Will make again & again.

The Perfect Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
This doesn't taste like dip to me. I think it's the mayo. I prefer cream cheese I guess. But I like the lemon a lot. So why did I give it a ****? Because to "fix" it I added salt/pepper/more jalapeno and maybe another 8 oz of spinach and made maybe the best creamed spinach I've ever had! Won't ever make this as dip again, but will definitely make it as a side dish with lots & lots of spinach!

Bissara

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
I really wanted to like this, but thought it was average at best. Love everything in it, but I didn't think it went well. Maybe lentils would be better? I love split pea soup with lots of thyme, it's light and perfect for spring. This was very heavy!

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Oh boy was this salty!!! I knew 1 tsp would probably be too much & wish I'd held off some. Other than that it is amazing! The other spices I amped up quite a bit. Will make this again & again with my own tweaks: way less salt, more cabbage & less potatoes, more onion, way less oil. I know that seems like a lot of changes, but I just think the oil & salt change healthy, yummy veggies into junk food :( thanks for sharing! Yum!

Peanut Butter Bars IV

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Just what my peanut butter craving needed! Didn't have any butter so I tried using sweetened condensed milk... shockingly, it worked okay! I used natural crunchy peanut butter & it wasn't too sweet. Also, I wanted something a little lighter than the reviews suggested it would be so I added 1/4 tsp baking powder.

Italian Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
Really good, but could be better! I used 1/4 tsp more baking soda and loved the texture. I doubled the garlic/tomatoes/onions and will do even more next time. Also, I would prefer more cheese. I don't enjoy subtle flavors :o) I like carbs self portioned so instead of a loaf, I made 12 "muffins" that I baked for 28 minutes. Yum! Will be a 5 star recipes in our house with some tinkering.

Irish Cream Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Typically I like a flat, crispy cookie. These are puffy and cake like, but i still really like them! Reduced recipe to 12 cookies & doubled the Baileys. I also chilled the dough 20 min, then dropped by spoonfuls (which I smooshed slightly) and chilled another 10 mins. Other reviewers complained dough was sticky (oh~ I totally agree with that!) so i reduced the heat by 25 degrees so they wouldn't spread so much. Baked 8 mins. Perfect! Also, I want to try these with a Hershey's Kiss in the middle... I adore Bailey's & chocolate together!
