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!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

I omitted the onion and the swiss, simply because I didn't have them, and it was still delicious! So easy.

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.

Pineapple Pork Chop Suey

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2009
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.
