Taco Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
This tasted strange with tacos. Tasted great as a dressing on a salad of lettuce, green peppers, olives, onion, black beans, and corn that went WITH the tacos though. In fact I will actually save this recipe just for that.

Syrian-Style Lentil and Spinach Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
merely OK, which is odd because I usually love Syrian food. Seemed like it was definitely missing something, even with the addition of cumin. Was a decent way to use up some old lentils I had laying around but won't be making this one again any time soon.

Pecan Crescent Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
Absolutely WONDERFUL recipe. My dad and my brother-in-law simply can't get enough of these. I make them every time I'm home visiting from college and every time they are gone in at least two days.

Sugar Spiced Almonds

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I thought they were pretty OK but, then again, I love spicy food. Many of my guests thought they were too hot. Not a keeper, I'm afraid.

Simple Garbanzos

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I cannot keep my spoon out of these! As is, they are perfect but I spiced them up to my liking and added a shook of Italian seasoning in addition to the oregano. Along with some roasted brussels sprounts, these made a lovely little mini-meal

Butterscotch Apple Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
Yes, grating up an apple is a pain in the rear but oh so worth it. I've made these twice and the second time I added in some minced up dried apple and it gave another layer of texture to the cookies that went over quite well.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
Had about an hour to whip together something tasty to bring to a meeting. Made these and left the nuts out because I didn't have them. I was expecting them to be so-so but they got rave reviews. Someone even said "I think that is the best muffin I've ever eaten."

Chocolate Peanut Butter Marble Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
The only downside to this cake is that it gets a few bowls messy. I Made this for my friend's birthday and it was a hit. The birthday girl even said it "made her birthday." and everyone at the party gobbled it up. Iced it with chocolate buttercream frosting and sprinkled chopped up Reese's cups on tops.

Vegetable Beef Soup I

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
I have officially found my "keeper" of vegetable soup recipes. I did change it up a little bit, though. I used V8 juice, added a packet of onion soup mix, doubled the vegetables, added 6 cloves of garlic (of course!), and added a dash of worcestershire sauce, added a dash of hot sauce, and omitted the salt. MUCH better than the canned stuff. I will try making it in the crock pot to get the beef even more tender next time.

Split Pea Soup with Rosemary

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Not half bad. My family prefers ham, so I defrosted some remainders from a holiday ham and added some Liquid Smoke to the soup (about 1/8 teaspoon). Very good flavor and texture. My family really enjoyed it, but I am still convinced I can find a better one.

Balsamic Marinated Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Really good. I doubled the recipe for 11 chicken breasts, used onion powder instead of minced onion, doubled the amount of garlic (of course) and 1/2 dried, 1/2 fresh rosemary. I let this soak for about 12 hours, microwaved in the marinade for about 10 minutes and finished up on the grill. Everyone LOVED it. I think this one is going into my file of "Really Good Stuff to do With Chicken Breasts."

Maria's Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Really good and flavorful. Absolutely use low-sodium beef broth. I did not and mine was a delicious, but just a bit too salty.

Lemon Ice-Box Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
The perfect end to a summer get-together. I thought that the cream cheese and sugar might be lumpy but it worked perfectly. Easy to prepare, light, absolutely delicious desert. 10 people absolutely devoured the entire 9x13 dish, most going back for seconds.

Rich and Creamy Tomato Basil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2008
Good bye Campbell's! I raided my herb garden and, in addition to the 14 basil leaves, decided to put in a few sprigs of summer savory, some cinnamon basil, and some fresh oregano. WOW. This soup was vibrant, creamy and altogether AMAZING. Served up with an Italian salad and some crusty bread it made a delectable summer dinner....I just have to run an extra mile in the morning....

Summer Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
I made this for a lunch get-together and people said that it was "pretty good." It lacked flavor (even after adding a bit of salt to it). Next time, I will stick to my normal normal chicken salad recipe.

Baked Calico Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2008
at the end of the baking time the rice and the vegetables were all still hard and crunchy. Had to put it in a pot on the stove and boil it and even then it still took another 30 minutes for the rice to become edibly soft. Not bad TASTING. Just a pain.

Gypsy Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
Can I give this 15 stars? Beautiful, hearty, rich, flavorful, healthy soup. I added two chopped carrots, doubled the garlic (of course) and found I had no tumeric so substituted dried mustard and some curry powder. Will definitely make this next winter.

Beer Brats

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
Made these for a bbq I threw recently and people loved them. Used generic brand sausages and cream ale. Even my dad, who is extremely picky about his grilled sausages said they were "excellent." The solitary leftover bratwurst was yummy chopped up in cheesy cheddar scrambled eggs.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
Would give it ten stars if I could. I used about 2 cups of sharp cheddar and 1/2 cup parmesan and added about a teaspoon of garlic powder (of course) to the eggs. YUMMY! So delicious and made with things that I always have on hand.

Mexican Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
not half bad...I made it for a potluck and decided to decrease the salt, hot sauce, and chili powder (I love spicy foods but I wanted it to be more "crowd friendly). Next time I will use full recommended amounts. And there will be a next time. I devoured the leftovers :)
