Classic Texas Caviar

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
This was a surprise hit at my last family party. I had an uncle in town who is vegan, so I tried to find something extra I could make for him to enjoy besides salad! My in-laws who are usually very resistant to trying anything new and different devoured it, and were asking for the recipe. Mine was a little on the blander side because I only used 1 jalapeno, and removed all the seeds and ribs because I didn't want it to be too spicy. So I had to re-season it with some salt, pepper, and garlic powder after it was refrigerated. So, just like the recipe states - taste and adjust the seasoning to your liking. I would make this again!

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2011
These are amazing! I made them as cupcakes. The recipe as posted makes 12 cupcakes (2/3 full) and I baked for 20 minutes.

Monkey Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2008
This is a new Christmas morning tradition for my family! This bread was awesome!! The Apple Butter makes for a nice different flavor beyond just sweet and cinnamon. I had a hard time finding 12oz refridgerated biscuits, but after checking every single tube in the section I finally found them.

Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2009
These are my absolute favorite "Christmas Cookie" to make. They're so easy, and fun to play with the recipe. Chocolate cake w/ peppermint extract is yummy too!

Halloween Popcorn Pumpkins

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I followed the recommendation of one of the other reviews and added 2 caramel cubes into the 'sauce' and tossed a handful of mini marshmallows into the popcorn mix. They came out pretty good - not overly sweet, and they look cute!

Chocolate Covered Cherries

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
These are AWESOME! And way easier than I ever thought Chocolate Covered Cherries would be. I only got about 48 out if it, but I probably used a bit too much dough on the first few cherries. I only had a few that I had trouble getting the stems out of, so I kept those for myself. I gave about 30 of them out as gifts for Christmas, and everyone who received them was very impressed.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
This was really tasty. I used Panettone that I had bought at Christmas. I had to cook the full 50 minutes and I let it sit for 5 to help it setup.

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I made this for New Years Eve dinner for my best friends. It was the first time I've ever made a rib roast! This turned out perfectly! I am lucky enough to have a double oven so the other items I made that required the oven weren't an issue. But you would need to plan accordingly if you only have one oven!

Soba with Toasted Sesame Seed Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
This recipe turned out very good. I added some stir fried chicken pieces to add a little protein and make it more of a main course. Had it as part of a NYE dinner party.

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2008
These were simply excellent! I remember my mom making roasted pumpkin seeds when I was a kid - but I think they were purely salted (no oil/butter even) so they were OK, but not great. I didn't change a thing and these were great! They'll be on my list every fall!!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
This turned out really good... and easy! My husband rated it a 9 out of 10. I did just a few things different, as some other reviewers mentioned too. I used frozen chicken breasts, a handful of frozen chopped onions, a 16oz pack of homestyle biscuits (8 biscuits) torn, and a carton of chicken broth in place of the water. I also added a little dried parsely, dried thyme, and dried rosemary to add some flavor. I didn't want to over do it, but next time I'd probably use a whole teaspoon of each (I had used maybe a quarter to half a tsp.) The chicken was super moist and falling apart when I took it out to shred it. But it was nice and creamy, a great cold night dinner!

Beer Brats

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2008
I used turkey brats (as my husband doesn't eat pork). And I think we determined that we just don't really like brats in general. The flavor was pretty good, and I cooked the whole meal outside using the side burner on our grill, while grilling some hot dogs for the kids.

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
eh... I don't know if I'd make these again. I used vegetable oil and a pinch of salt with pumpkin seasoning. I probably should have added a pinch of sugar or brown sugar as well because the pretty much just tasted like cooked squash. they were a little on the soggy side, but not awful.

Oven Chicken Fingers

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I thought these were only OK. The crumb coating was falling off, and they didn't get very brown. I tried the honey mustard sauce, which was good - similar to some restaurants. But not like my fav sauce, which I'm still trying to find a recipe to re-create it!
