Roasted Chickpeas

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
I followed another cook's suggestion and dry roasted the chickpeas at 300 degrees for an hour, shaking them every 10 minutes or so. I then drizzled them with olive oil and added sea salt and garlic powder. I turned up the heat to 400 degrees for 30 minutes, shaking them every 10 minutes. They were super crunchy. My co-workers couldn't get enough! I'll definitely try them with cayenne pepper next time.

Classic Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
This was fantastic. I made homemade noodles in the pasta maker, and they turned out fabulous. I made the chicken soup base the day before, and then made the rest the night we ate it. (For a person who works for long hours, it's a lot of prep to do it all in one night.)

Pie Iron Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
We made these on a camping trip and served them with sour cream and salsa. While it's a good recipe and a nice break from typical camping food, next time I'd probably add peppers or use a spicier taco seasoning to give it a little more heat.

Meatball Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
Yum! Even my husband, who doesn't like "tomato chunks," gobbled this up. The meatballs added tons of extra flavor; I will never go back to plain old hamburger again. To save time, I used 30 small pre-packaged meatballs, defrosted them in the microwave, and mashed them with a potato masher. No-boil noodles were also a huge time saver. For the tomato sauce, I added mushrooms and red pepper flakes and used Italian flavored diced tomatoes. I only had enough of the ricotta cheese and egg mixture for one layer of it, so next time I will double it in order to have two layers. It worked well to make two 8x8 pans instead of one large one.

Lavender Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
Got rave reviews from the co-workers on this one! I did not use mint or lemon zest because I didn't have any on hand. I added some lemon juice instead but it didn't really add any flavor. Next time I will be sure to use the zest. I rolled the dough in wax paper, chilled it for an hour, and cut it into slices to bake. I also sprinkled a bit of sugar on top of each cookie before baking. These cookies did not spread as some other reviewers mentioned.

World's Best Bacon Cheese Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
This was very good, but I put it in a small crock pot to keep it warm during a party and it got a little curdly-looking. It was still tasty, just not the most appetizing to look at. Next time I'll try oven-baking it. I added dried minced onion, garlic powder, dried parsley, and hot peppers to give it some extra zip.

Vanilla Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Excellent on the Coconut Pound Cake found on this site. I substituted coconut extract for vanilla because of the cake. It was very tasty. Next time I will need to sift the powdered sugar, as it did turn out a bit lumpy.

Skillet Chicken Cordon Bleu

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
A pretty good recipe, overall. I added some milk and a little extra wine to dilute the sauce and cut back on the saltiness described by other raters. Not a bad recipe.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
These were ok. The flavor was good, but the consistency was off (though that is to be expected since there's no flour). An easy gluten-free recipe that doesn't require alternative types of flour.

Marty's Loosemeat Sandwich

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
An ok recipe. Needs a lot of seasoning, as others have suggested, to give it flavor.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2010
This was definitely a good recipe; I have no complaints. I'm not exactly sure what made it any better than any other pumpkin bread I've made in the past, though. It's ordinary, not extraordinary.

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
My non-chili eating husband tried this and loved it (though really, he would probably eat anything spicy with bacon and beer). It was delicious.

Coconut Cream Pound Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
Took this to work and topped with the Vanilla Glaze (substituting coconut extract for the vanilla) from this site. It was phenomenal and got rave reviews from my co-workers.

Jersey Fresh Tomato Soup

Good, but will keep searching for a tomato soup that is more bisque-esque.

This dish is ok; there is nothing spectacular about it, but it's good for your average weeknight dinner.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
A very tasty recipe. The chipotle-lime dressing made way too much, so I will cut it in half next time.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2011
Only used one sheet of crescent roll dough and it was plenty (just needed to be stretched out). Baked at 350 for 30 min. and it was golden brown and not doughy at all. A very versatile recipe that can be used with many combinations of protiens, veggies, herbs, and sauces.

Sour Cream Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
I only had 1/4 cup of sour cream, so I added 3/4 c. of buttermilk to the mix. Otherwise, I made the recipe as written. Got rave reviews from my co-workers.
