Pumpkin Waffles with Apple Cider Syrup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
The syrup is delicious and simple to make. The waffles are okay. Would make syrup again and again.

Turkey Posole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
I made this using my leftover Thanksgiving turkey carcass. It was absolutely delicious. Surpasses my usual turkey noodle soup recipe for sure. It's a nice change of pace. I started by boiling the carcass until the meat was mostly all off the bone. Drained it and picked out the good meat. I used the broth and meat without measuring. I didn't have poblano chile peppers or green chile peppers, so I used a dried ancho chile that I had. I only had one can of white beans rather than two, but it seemed like enough. This definitely needs toppings. We let each person top their own with cilantro, lime, lettuce, sharp cheddar, onion and tortilla chips. Yum! They totally improve the soup. Without them it would seem dull. With them it is delicious!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
As usual, I couldn't do this exactly as written. I started by cooking up 4 strips of bacon. I poached the chicken. I sauteed all the veggies in the pan with a little bacon grease. I added 2 small potatoes diced. Then added the flour and chicken broth once the chicken was poached. Diced chicken and added it. Plus some fresh parsley, rosemary and thyme from the herb garden. Looked like far too much for my small pie crusts, so I put the bottom pie crust in a round glass casserole dish. Poured in the filling and topped with pie crust. Baked on the lowest rack of the oven to get bottom crust done. 375 for 40 minutes. It was so delicious. Perfect way to spend a November evening.

Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
Pretty good soup. The biggest change I made was after making the soup as listed I thought it was a little thin for a main dish soup. We like thicker soups. I added some sweet corn that I had frozen this summer. That did the trick.

Chocolate Zucchini Cake I

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
This is wonderful. I made it because I needed a dessert for a large group of adult students. I got many compliments and several requests for the recipe. I made it exactly as stated except I omitted nuts due to allergies in the group. It is light, chocolaty with a delicious spice taste. I would categorize it as "Grandma cake." The kind of down home dessert you would expect to have at your grandma's house.

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
I thought these were good when they came out of the oven, but that's not hard to do. What really impressed me was how good these are cold. They stayed chewy for days. I think they are very rich, so I wouldn't make a pan again for just my husband and I, but they would be a huge hit with company. The chocolate chips make them extremely rich, so I think those could be left out. I used 1 1/4 cups brown sugar and 1 1/4 cups white sugar. Turned out great. Update: I have since made these many times for parties. I do cut the amount of chocolate chips in half. Also, I use Penzeys cocoa and found that makes a HUGE difference. Made at my mom's house once with Hersey's cocoa and they tasted terrible by comparison, so really good cocoa is a must!

Asian Pasta Salad with Beef, Broccoli and Bean Sprouts

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
I had some bean sprouts to use up and found this recipe after an ingredient search. I really liked this except I found the dressing to be way too watery. I will admit, I was making this to be served immediately and therefore had to rinse the pasta in cold water. I'm assuming if I followed the cookie sheet directions it would retain it's sticky starch and help the dressing stay on. Still, I'll probably use peanut butter as a thickener next time. I got my deli girl to give me two thicker slices of black angus which I julienned at home. It worked great, so I'd keep the beef in. Followed the rest to a T. Flavor was great, just needed a sauce that would stick.

Thai Chicken Pizza

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
I found this recipe by after searching by ingredient for bean sprouts. I had a large bag I was looking to use up quickly. Boy am I glad I did. This is an extremely delicious exotic recipe. I made my own super thin pizza crust. I made my own peanut sauce using the Easy Peanut Sauce recipe from this site. That is my go-to peanut sauce and I make it all the time for stir fry, spring roll dip etc... It works great here too. I cooked two chicken breasts, but really only needed one. I poached them - take a frozen chicken breast and place in boiling chicken broth. Cook for 15-20 min. Perfectly moist chicken. Then I sprinkled it with lime juice and pepper. Used mozzarella cheese on top. I also added cilantro the the topping sprinkled on after the pizza is done. My husband and my neighbor raved.

Granola Bars III

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
I've had this recipe sitting around for YEARS and finally decided to pick up some wheat germ and try them. OMG!!! What was I waiting for? These are so delicious you could serve them as dessert bars. It was the first 80 degree day in MN and the neighborhood kids were biking by and all got to try one. They loved them even with walnuts and craisens. I can't wait to make more different varieties. Thanks for an excellent, super quick, easy, delicious recipe. Made again and when I mixed up they seemed really dry. I added a splash of milk and that seemed to work fine. I thought they were a little sweet as well. Next time may drop the brown sugar by 1/4 cup.

Wyoming Cowboy Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Holy buttery, peacany, brown sugary goodness! My husband and I both loved these. Made exactly as the recipe stated. Toasting the coconut is a great idea. They were nice plump chewy delicious cookies. They are definitely going in the cookie rotation in our house. No changes necessary.

Beef and Barley Soup III

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
I have made this so many times over the years. I just discovered that I haven't reviewed it. It is absolutely delicious and a winter favorite in our house. The only change I make is using hamburger instead of the beef roast. I usually make it on the stove top, but I've made it in the crock pot for events and it turns out great. I'm sure you will enjoy this recipe.

Fatoosh

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2008
Absolutely delicious! I've had this in my recipe book for a long time and finally tried it because I came across sumac powder in a Mediterranean market. You must have the sumac it really changes the taste. I also loved the strong garlic flavor. Yummy! All the book club ladies liked it.

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
Clearly this recipe doesn't need more praise, however I made 3 pies for Thanksgiving and this was clearly the hit of the party. It is buttery, soft and delicious. I toasted my pecans before I mixed them in and I topped the pie with pecan halves arranged in concentric circles. Will definitely make again.

Kaes-Spaetzle

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
I accidentally stumbled across this recipe and I'm so glad I did. I love spaetzle and make it certainly more frequently than the average American, but I've always made it with pork roast and served with gravy. This is an excellent change of pace. If you like spaetzle invest in a spaetzle maker. Mine looks like an extra large potato ricer and has a variety of plates to choose from to vary the size of the spaetzle. It's so easy I use it when I make chicken or turkey soup. Rather than buying noodles I make spaetzle and squeeze into the soup when everything else is done cooking. I made this recipe for supper last night. Followed the recipe exactly except I grated fresh nutmeg and fresh pepper across each layer before I added the cheese. I used a bag of shredded swiss cheese since I didn't want to spend $9 on cheese when I wasn't sure if we'd like the recipe. I'm sure it would be even more delicious if you bought better quality cheese. My bag of cheese had 2 cups in it and that worked out fine, although if you really want cheesy go for the whole amount. The onions on the top are so delicious. My husband asked if I added French onion soup mix. (I did not.) He said it reminded him of French onion soup. I did cook the onions in butter rather than oil. It only took 3 Tbsp. of butter. I also forgot to add the vinegar, but that was okay. The thing that really made this meal was what I served with it. I made a simple salad with cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and red onion

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
Considering my husband looked this recipe up on his own and made it on his own, it deserves 5 stars just for that. However, it actually tasted really great too. Fun new dish!

Coleslaw with Peas

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
I've had this recipe in my file for a long time and never made it. I had a huge head of cabbage in the fridge and looking for a way to use it. I thought I'd try this for a different change of pace. It was delicious. My husband and I both love curry flavor, so this was right up our ally. Here are my changes: add a small tart apple cut into little pieces, use only about 1 cup of peas tops, less salt, toast the peanuts to bring out the flavor. I also added a little fennel seed. My husband and I ate almost the whole batch just the two of us it was so good. I made it again the next night because I still had more cabbage to use up. Brought the leftovers to a neighbor and she called exclaiming how much she liked it. I think it would be great to take to a potluck because it's different. It holds up well too. Still good after a day in the fridge. If you need to thaw peas in a hurry, just put them in a bowl and run hot water over them from the tap. It thaws them out without cooking them. I hope more people try this wonderful recipe.

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2008
I was hungry for a good apple muffin. It's fall in Minnesota and we have plenty of apples. These hit the spot with TUNISIANSWIFE's changes. (1/2 brown sugar, 1/2 white sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg) I used 1 1/2 cups shredded apple AND 1 1/2 cups chopped apple. I was worried that they would be too wet, but they were just perfectly moist. I also added a little dry oatmeal to the struesel topping and melted the butter to make the topping easier to mix up. I will definitely add nuts next time I make these. They could use a little crunch. Walnuts or pecans would be good. Will definitely make again. I brought into work on a platter arranged with an apple slice between each muffin. Everyone raved.

Chocolate Sheet Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
This is a great recipe. I loved that the ingredients were all things that I had on hand already. Also the fact that it bakes in 15 minutes is amazing. It's big enough to feed a large crowd and cools off quickly for frosting. I made frosting following a recipe my mom had. Here it is: Put 10 oz. milk chocolate in food processor. Heat 1/2 cup of whipping cream, a pinch of salt and 1 Tablespoon of corn syrup to a simmer. Pour over chocolate and process. Add in 1/2 cup powdered sugar and process. Slowly add in 8 tablespoons of cold butter. Process until smooth. We didn't have milk chocolate so we used regular chocolate chips and it turned out great. This cake was wonderful with that frosting. I made it for my niece's 11 birthday party and adults and kids all loved it.
