Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
I made these cookies exactly as directed. I have no complaints about anything. They came out perfectly and were delicious. I love the texture...crispy edges and soft insides. My only suggestion would be to double this recipe. There were not enough cookies remaining for others after my husband and I started tasting them. :-)

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
Wonderful and easy recipe! Three of us ate it all up fresh out of the oven with not a bite left over. My friend, who is on an Atkins diet, even got to have dinner with us tonight since this quiche has no crust! I used a combo of Italian mixed cheeses, Parmesan and Swiss ( what was in my frig) and some chopped fresh parsley (which I needed to use up). I even gave this recipe to my friend before she left my house. Thanks for sharing it.

Israeli Moroccan Couscous

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2005
I thought this recipe was excellent. It was hearty and mildly spicy (just right). I used no zucchini (I had none), and 1/4 tsp curry powder. It came out just right. It was very tasty and easy to make. The only negative comment came from my husband who wanted rice instead of couscous. Too bad! I loved it!!!

Sweet Potato Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Oh, yum!! This is a fabulous recipe! My husband, who hates anything to do with sweet potatoes, even had to admit this was good. The only changes I made were as follows: (1) Use orange juice instead of water. (2) Add 1/2 cup dark raisins to the batter. (3) Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes. This recipe's a definite keeper!!

Chicken Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2005
This is excellent! It got rave reviews from my son and husband (even though I accidentally made it with black pepper instead of cayenne pepper). *blushes* I didn't mind the "mushy" tortillas. You can always add extra cut-up tortillas to the soup at the end of cooking. The "mushy" tortillas make the soup nice and thick. Instead of canned tomatoes, I used two chopped fresh tomatoes and one can (8-oz.) of tomato sauce. To make the whole preparation easier, I just used 1 pound of diced, boneless chicken and sauteed that along with the tortillas, etc. at the beginning of the preparation. This is a nice hearty soup with fairly easy preparation. I love it! Don't forget to serve it with a wedge of lime.

Panzanella Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
This is a fantastic recipe. I am addicted to it! The only thing I did differently was to use black olives instead of green ones. I didn't have green one, but I think I like the milder taste of black olives with this salad anyway. In addition, I used shreded mozarella instead of cubes because that's what I had. I did go heavy on the mozarella, though. :)

Orange Pumpkin Loaf

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I thoroughly liked this recipe. I had no problem with the slight bitterness from the whole orange rind (as I don't like things that are overly sweet) nor did I have a problem with the overpowering orange taste (as I like the orange taste better than the pumpkin taste and am still getting the benefit of the beta-carotene). I used cooked fresh pumpkin rather than canned and baked the loaf 1 hour and 20 minutes because of the many people who complained of the loaf seeming to come out underbaked. Mine came out perfectly. I'm saving this recipe.

Wakula's First Attempt at Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
This recipe was delicious. It turned out more like soup than a stew, but that's okay. The seasoning was perfect. I simmered it for 30 minutes (a bit longer than the recipe suggested). I didn't have leeks or elephant garlic, so I skipped those and just used 2 (minced) cloves of regular garlic. My husband had been complaining about me never serving meat, so I skipped the cheese and simply sauteed 8 oz. of sliced knockwurst (my old stand-by) with the onions and garlic at the beginning of the recipe. Oh, and I used olive oil instead of butter - keeping it kosher. :) My husband and daughter loved it. It's very hearty - a great recipe for those crisp autumn days.

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
This is a great recipe because you can substitute so many things, and it comes out yummy just the same! Next time, I think I'll increase the amount of eggs to 2 instead of 1. I made more rice (2 cups instead of 1 1/2), but that did not seem to be a problem. It got a thumbs way up from my family!

Cathy's Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2004
I added 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips, and it came out perfect! My sons love it. Note: I had to bake it for 1 hours and 80 minutes before it was done all the way through.

Chili con Carne II

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2004
Excellent recipe. This one's a keeper. I disagree that the cinnamon needs to be reduced. I made this recipe for my husband and son (both of whom are pretty tough when it comes to chili they like). They both did not mind the cinnamon. What I did, however, was put in a fresh red hot pepper from my garden (Sorry I don't know what kind, but, trust me, it was pretty hot.) The hot pepper overpowered the cinnamon taste and made it just right! We all like picante, so the degree of heat was right for us. I did break up both cinnamon sticks and put them with the whole cloves in a tea ball before adding them to the pot. The only other change I made was with the tomatoes. I used one 28-oz can of whole tomatoes and two fresh tomatoes (cut up into large chunks). I served the chili on hot rice. It was great!

Green Cabbage Caldo Verde

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
This is an excellent soup for the chilly days of autumn! Here's what I did a little differently from the original recipe. I used Polish beef sausage instead of chorizo (to make it kosher). I added 1 carrot, chopped into small pieces, plus its carrot greens, finely diced, for color. I used 4 tsp of salt instead of 2 tsp of salt because I like it more heavily seasoned. I used plain paprika instead of smoked paprika only because I didn't have the smoked kind. Thanks for a great recipe!!

Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
I loved this soup! I made it for my husband and daughter, and they both agreed that it was great. This is what I added to the soup, though: 1 clove garlic, finely minced (sauteed with the onion), 1 cup corn, 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, 4 tsp salt, a few twists of freshly ground black pepper. Oh, and I used 12 oz. chopped Polish sausage because I had no Italian sausage. I just sauteed it in 2 Tbsp of olive oil. I did not use any garlic salt.

Wild Rice and Squash Pilaf

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
The complex taste of this recipe was really good. I used two things I'd never used before - kabocha squash (a winter squash) and wild rice. I made it exactly as the recipe said with the exception of not using savory which I did not have. Instead, I substituted 1/2 tsp. thyme and 1/4 tsp sage. I think this is a wonderful vegetable dish although it takes a bit of time to prepare. I think the time is well worth the wait. My daughter disliked this recipe because she doesn't like wild rice; my husband called this pilaf "interesting". I, however, loved it!

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2009
This recipe was excellent, *but* I made a few changes. I added the following to a DOUBLED recipe. I put in 2 cloves of minced garlic and 4 chopped green onions when I sauteed the yellow onions. To the fish mixture, I added 1 tsp salt, a few grinds of black pepper, 1 tsp Old Bay, 1 Tbsp Dijon mustard (instead of dry mustard), juice of 1/2 lemon. I did not bother breading the salmon cakes (too much fuss), but waited until the oil was nice and hot, then browned both sides of each patty. Both my husband and my daughter gave these patties a thumbs up!!

Garlic Broccoli Spears

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Excellent recipe, quick to make and delicious to eat! Remember to whisk the dressing ingredients briskly in order to pull out the full flavor of the minced garlic. I'd suggest using olive oil rather than vegetable oil. Don't let the broccoli get soggy!!

Cornbread Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Excellent recipe; thank you. These pancakes are easy to make and come out delicious. No changes to the recipe are needed. I served ours with maple syrup to my husband and daughter. Not a single pancake was left over!

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: May 4, 2004
Very refreshing and tasty! I made it ever so quickly by adding ice to the hot liquid to cool it down right away, then adding enough water to dilute the mixture.

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
Great use of kale! Thanks! I made this soup with only a few changes. I couldn't find my Italian seasoning (until the soup was already made and like my soup well spiced), so I added 1 tsp basil, 1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp rosemary, 1/2 tsp thyme, and 1/8 tsp cayenne. Instead of blending, I just used a potato masher to mash the contents of one can of beans and cooked everything together all at once for 20 minutes. It was so easy and tasty that my husband, who said he wasn't hungry, decided to eat two bowls of it! :)

Apple Shortbread Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
This recipes gets thumbs way up from me. The underneath crust came out crispy, sweet, and slightly brown. The pie itself was very tasty. The best thing about it is that this is a complete pie without any dough-rolling at all. Cheers! I made no changes to this recipe except letting the pie bake for an additional 5 minutes to be sure it was done.
