Reva's Potato Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2014
This was great. Right after blending, I aded a bottle of beer and 1/2 of cup of half-n-half. Now it's a soup to die for!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2012
This is a pretty good recipe as written, but I find that the batter is almost too thick. I increase the milk to 1 cup and it works out much better that way!

Mediterranean Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
This was SO good! I paired it with the spinach and rice recipe from this site and it was a great, healthy supper. The only thing I changed was to use a 28 oz can of diced tomatoes (per other reviewers suggestions) and I left out the olives, since my husband doesn't like them. Too bad, I love them. Still great though!

Spinach and Rice (Spanakorizo)

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
My husband and I were making falafels one night and looking for a side dish to go with it. We decided to give this one a try. Boy, am I glad we did -- it's wonderful!! The only thing I do different is to make this with brown rice instead of white. It takes about 20 more minutes to cook and tastes heavenly! Be sure to add the feta cheese and the lemon juice -- they really make the dish!

Lemon Cream Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2010
The taste of these cupcakes is phenomenal -- but 25-30 minutes is WAY too long to bake them. I tried my first batch at 18 minutes and they were still a little too dark for me. I would start checking them at 15 minutes. You *just* want the toothpick to come out dry -- this is the secret to great baked goods. Don't overbake!

Our Favorite Waffles

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
These waffles were okay. We ate them, but I just didn't think they had a lot of flavor. I'll be going back to my trusty buttermilk waffle recipe after this. But if you want something simple and easy to make, these aren't too bad. They beat the box mix anyway! :-)

Jen's Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
Excellent flavor! I made these as muffins. If you decide to make muffins, they only need to bake about 25 minutes. And you can top them with nuts or a crumb topping (1/4 sugar, 2 tablespoons flour and 1 tablespoon butter combined). The only other thing I changed was to add a tsp of vanilla.

Spinach Mushroom and Ricotta Fettuccine

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
This was just okay. I had all of the ingredients in the house, which is why I tried it. But it was bland and I didn't really care for the texture of the finished product. I won't be making this again.

Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
This was amazing! I used ground chicken, added one chopped onion and omitted the corn. But otherwise, I followed the directions to a T. A definite keeper -- my dh couldn't stop raving about it! I've been trying to find "the" chili recipe over the past year or so and have tried several from this site. This is the best one (including both chicken and beef recipes) out of the whole bunch!

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
This was really good. My family recently became vegetarians and I'm always on the lookout for good meals. This one definitely made the cut. The fennel was an amazing (and unexpected) addition. This one is going into permanent rotation. Thank you!

Refried Black Beans

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I love these! I'm not a big fan of pinto beans, so using black beans for this recipe was inspired, IMHO! I agree with other reviewers, though, that it calls for too much liquid smoke. A couple of drops is plenty. Try is paired with Chicken Enchiladas I and Mexican Rice recipes!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
These are wonderful! Try scaling it down to 4 servings -- that was just the right size for my family of 2 adults and 2 children. And we still had a few leftovers. The only thing I did different was to roast my garlic before adding. Roasting garlic is really easy, by the way. Just take a whole head of garlic and place it in a large piece of aluminum foil. Drizzle with a little olive oil and salt and pepper. Completely close the foil around garlic and throw in a 400 degree oven for about 30-45 minutes. It doesn't have to be perfect. Just try squeezing the garlic -- if it feels soft, it's done!

Broccoli and Sausage Cavatelli

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I love, love, love this recipe! I've made it many times. Although I have made some changes. For one, I bake the sausage on a cookie sheet in the oven. It takes about 30 minutes on 350. While that is cooking, I start the pasta and broccoli. I cook those in separate dishes, because when I added the frozen broccoli to the pasta water the first time, it cooled it off too much and took too long to get back to a boil! Also, I replace half the olive oil with butter for a richer flavor, use fresh broccoli, omit the parmesan cheese and add parsley. In any event, this is a great starter dish to taylor to your tastes. A quick, satisfying and tasty dinner!
