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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
Not that this needs another good rating, but this was incredibly yummy. The only changes I made were to add a can of cheddar cheese soup for a bit of extra cheesy flavor. My dinner guests devoured it up and then begged for the leftovers.

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.

Curried Spinach Soup

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
Not half bad for such a low cal recipe. I boiled some chopped celery with the potatoes and added a bit of yellow onion to the green onions and added a clove of garlic (all stuff I had that needed to be eaten before it went bad). For those not watching their weight as closely, a grilled cheese sandwitch is awesome along side this.

Spinach Dip with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
This stuff ROCKS! I served it with crackers at a baby shower and some of the guests said it was the best spinach dip they'd ever had. I gave it four stars because I felt that 1/2 cup was entirely too much mayo. I instead added 1/2 package of cream cheese, which I think helped give it a flavor boost.

Dark Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
this stuff is fantastic! I made this into cupcakes to bring to a party and got about 1/2 of them in the liners before I realized that I had forgotten to add the sugar (OOPS!). I scraped the batter out of the liners back into the bowl, added the sugar, put the batter BACK into the liners and put them in the oven, convinced that they weren't going to turn out. They were still FABULOUS!

Chantilly Cake Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
YUMMY! I made this to frost on a batch of dark chocolate cupcakes for a party and it was all I could do to keep myself from eating all of it out of the bowl. The party-goers raved as well.

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.

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.

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.

Vegan Bean Taco Filling

Reviewed: May 17, 2008
I honestly think this stuff is better the next day and only then with crunchy taco shells or tortilla chips. Tried it as a taco filling for soft tacos....no bueno. However with the taco fixings layered on top (chopped tomatoes, lettuce, sour cream, shredded cheese, avocado, rice), it made a FABULOUS taco salad with tortilla chips. I'm trying to go vegetarian, so I will probably keep playing with this to see what works.

Taco Soup VI

Reviewed: May 11, 2008
I used 2 lb ground beef, halved the spices and added a chopped onion to the meat while it was browning. Delish with a dollop of sour cream and shredded cheese on top. Everyone asked me for the recipe.

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."
