Spinach Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
Really delicious! I had 2 c. of chicken broth left over, so I used that plus 4 c. water. I didn't bother shredding the carrots, but diced about 4 and also through in some diced celery. I can't have the lime juice in prepared salsa, so I used a can of diced tomatoes plus 1 tsp. cumin, 1/2 tsp. paprika and a dash of red pepper flakes. In addition, I added a half cup of elbow mac with the spinach (or kale, sometimes). We topped it with some crumbled turkey bacon and some shaved cheese. YUMMO!

Butternut Squash Soup with a Kick

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2012
This is excellent! It provides a great base for carrying other ingredients you might like to add, too. I already had roasted squash on hand, omitted onion and jalapeno, because I didn't have them. I also used 4 oz of heavy cream + 8 oz of skim milk in place of evaporated milk. I ended up adding about 1/8 tsp cayenne, 1/4 tsp white pepper and 1 tsp sea salt to achieve the "kick". In place of grated fresh, I chopped up crystallized ginger. So, I pretty much used a different set of ingredients to achieve something similar, but it's what I had on hand!!!

Vegetarian Korma

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
Really good! I omitted the onion and garlic (intolerant) and accidentally added 6oz of tomato paste instead of sauce. It was still wonderful!

Charleston Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Very very good and easy! I halved the recipe for just my husband and I. I did add in an extra egg, a splash more milk, only 1 tsp of mustard, a generous pinch of salt, and 10 turns of the pepper grinder. I think I'll make it with sausage next time, because the bacon ended up a little tough for us. This recipe is a great canvas for lots of variations!

Leek and Fennel Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Good stuff. I will definitely double the amount of potatoes next time, as the fennel was a little strong for my taste. I used about 3/4 of the amount of liquid called for (broth instead of water/bouillon).

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
A simple, rustic and hearty soup! I used half chicken and half beef broth, because it was what I had on hand. As another reviewer suggested, I used the milk/cornstarch mixture instead of heavy cream. Instead of regular potatoes, I used fingerling and just doubled the amount. Yummy!

Lemon Blueberry Drop Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
These are so much more moist than other recipes I've used! I used french vanilla yogurt, and omitted the glaze because they were plenty sweet to me. If you want to make these into scone shapes, just drop the whole batch onto a baking sheet lined with parchment, shape into a flattened circle, then cut with a pizza wheel into the number of scones you desire, making sure to separate them just a little. You can make this gluten free with the exact same taste using the following as substitute for each cup of flour: 45g amaranth flour + 45g brown rice flour + 35g tapioca starch. The dough is a little more sticky, but the flavor and texture ends up the same!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Yeah, this is delicious! If you're looking for sandwich bread like I was, this is not it (it's a little too "spongey" to slice and toast), but it makes a killer bread to go with a meal. I think I'll try dinner rolls with it, as many suggested.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Very good and very easy. I baked up the "Amish White Bread" from this site to use. (It is fantastic!) Like others, I skipped the butter and didn't miss it, but coated the dish with nonstick spray. I think that next time I will try adding a little more sweetness to the egg mixture to make it more to my taste.

Easiest Focaccia Recipe

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Awesome and easy! As others suggested, I added a scant tsp of sea salt to the flour, as well as a couple tsps of thyme, oregano, etc and a 1/4 tsp of garlic powder. (This recipe would easily support several Tbsp of herbs.) As my bread hook was doing the work kneading, I added about a Tbsp of olive oil then let it rise. After patting it into shape, I also brushed on olive oil and sprinkled a little sea salt. I preheated the oven to 475, put the bread in and then turned it off to "cold-bake" for 10 minutes and it turned out moist and chewy and sooo amazing. Sliced it open for some grilled veggie sammies. Yum!

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
This rocked my world! I followed it as written, except I broiled in the oven rather than brave the heat to grill it. I lined a baking sheet with foil, and broiled the veg for 3 minutes on each side. I then broiled the bread/sauce/feta open face for 2 minutes. I'm usually an onion hater, but don't skip them! They mellow out once cooked and nicely balance the tartness in the sauce. Served with sweet tea... Delish!

Penne with Red Pepper Sauce and Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
Delicious! (And, I was really skeptical, but tried anyway because of the reviews.) It all came together to create a unique and wonderful flavor without tomatoes! I had only one very large red pepper on hand, and added chicken broth to the onion/pepper mixture to deglaze the pot every so often. I also used zucchini in place of broccoli.

Kim's Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Truly delicious! The white pepper and the cider vinegar (as opposed to regular pepper and vinegar) really MAKE it. I didn't have any green onions, so those were omitted. Next time I'll chop up some red pepper and zucchini to throw in it!

Kay's Spaghetti and Lasagna Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
A great sauce! I only had 2 14oz cans of diced tomatoes, which I pureed, and it was plenty enough for our taste. Like others, I used only 1 bell pepper, 1 tbsp of sugar and 1 can of tomato paste. This recipe makes more than you think it will.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
Doubled the recipe and it turned out great. Definitely not cake-like, which I prefer. Didn't make the frosting and the pan still disappeared. A good base recipe for adding in fudge, nuts, etc.

Very good! Used some leftover porkchops from the grill. Also used fresh, chopped pineapple, so I substituted OJ for the reserved liquid.

Marinated Spicy Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
Very good marinade! Instead of 3/4 cup of soy sauce, my husband used 1/2 cup and then added 1/4 cup of Worcestershire sauce. He also added 2 T. of cayenne pepper for a kick.
