I love this recipe. Everyone was a bit unsure of trying it at first, but it got rave reviews! It's a great dessert for the summer.

Easy Vodka Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
Awesome. I always freeze the sauce into serving size bags so I have it on hand for quick dinners. I've made it so many times, and everyone loves it. I do add some dried basil, I don't know, maybe a tablespoon, and maybe about the same amount of sugar. I usually just add a bit, let it sit, taste it, and add more if needed. To make an easy dinner I buy thin sliced chicken breasts, lightly coat them in olive oil, salt, pepper, and some Italian seasoning and broil it. Add some steamed broccoli and it's a complete meal. Hint: Don't use half and half, it messes up the texture. Also, don't use the cheapest vodka if you don't have to. Vodka that's a step up gives it a cleaner taste. Usually we have Absolut on hand, but I made it with some Belvedere and Grey Goose that was left at my house and it was even better.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2008
I made this bread for a dinner party, and I was told I made the best bread ever. It's so simple, and it smells great while it's cooking.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
My husband who doesn't even like sweet potatoes LOVED this pie! It was super easy to make, I even left the pie in a bit too long (oops!) and it was kind of dark on top, but it tasted great! Thanks!

Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
I was back in the US for a bit and was missing Indian food, so I made this for my mom for lunch. We both absolutely loved it! We used ground cinnamon in place of the stick and mashed up the chickpeas a bit, like another reviewer said to do.

Harvest Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
Very easy to make! I halved the recipe, I'm cooking for just myself. The pumpkin didn't even take the full 45 minutes to roast, I think it took about 30. I let it cool for a bit, and the skin came right off, in two perfect pieces. Used the Magic bullet to puree the pumpkin and broth in two batches. I let it simmer with fresh sage (didn't have dried), nutmeg and salt. Added a small bit of heavy cream at the end. I didn't really measure anything, I didn't want to make a huge mess to clean, and it came out pretty well. I will definitely make it again with my other sugar pumpkin.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
They were great! The only thing I did was add about 2 tsp of vanilla extract. My 4 year old, who is not the best eater, said "I LOVE these!" That's a high compliment, coming from the child who has no problem telling me something "tastes howwible".

Quick and Easy Spinach Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
Pretty good, and very simple. The store didn't have green onions, used small amount of chopped (small) yellow onion. Also, I used puff pastry (is there a difference?) only on the top, not bottom.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
This turned me into a Breakfast Cookie person!!! I saw the plate of cookies this morning and just *had* to have one with my coffee. I cut the white sugar down by 1/2 C, and they have the perfect amount of sweetness for me. I didn't overcook them, which is amazing for my cooking. 6 minutes seemed to be the perfect amount for them in my oven/with the size I made. It was such an easy recipe too! I've never made oatmeal cookies before. I did have to use regular oats, not the quick cooking kind, and the oats *might* be underdone, but not really noticeable. I'm going to buy quick cooking oats today though :)

Butterbeer

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
This isn't really a drink for everyday, but I think a big crockpot of it for a holiday party would be nice. It's different, but not so different that it's a turn-off for a gathering. Next time I'll add a bit more butter to it though, play with the proportions of everything until I get it right for me.

Apple Toast

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2010
I didn't have to add sugar, like other people suggested, but different kinds of apples have different sugar levels. I used Gala apples. I didn't measure the cinnamon, just kind of sprinkled it on for a dusting. I'm going to try toasting the bread lightly first, then doing everything else. The bread under the apples was a bit soggy. Overall it was enjoyable, easy and fast, which is great for when you're really hungry.

Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
This was pretty good. Not the best every, but I'll be making it again. It did have a bit of a tang to it. -I used farfalle pasta, I don't know if maybe it had an effect on the finished result. -Added a bit of milk right before I put the bread crumbs on. Didn't measure, just poured a small amount over the top and stirred, probably less than 1/2 C. I really do wonder if some people who made this used a 1 lb box of pasta instead of 8 oz, I didn't find it dry. The leftovers were a bit drier, but it wasn't like I needed a sip of water after each bite or anything. I *loved* the breadcrumbs on top. I thought 1 C was just fine, but I like toppings :) I used the Progresso Italian style. Very good.

Mediterranean Lentil Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2010
It was a hit, I was so surprised! (I knew I would like it, but didn't think other people would :D ) Made this exactly how it was written, and it was perfect. I don't even like parsley.

Raspberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
This was a very dry recipe. I had to add 1/4 C of milk to get it to batter consistency rather than dough. I also used brown sugar instead of white to try to keep some moisture in the muffins. I added about 2 TBS extra lemon juice, as I had no extract. One whole egg instead of whites, I hate wasting things. The batter didn't make enough for 12 muffins (in a regular tin) so I made 10 instead. Had to bake for longer, 20 minutes. The end result was pretty good, my husband loved them.

Creamy Brown Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
Mmmm.... surprisingly good! I love rice pudding :) I think next time I'll use vanilla extract instead. I liked the almond, but I like vanilla better.

Beef Tenderloin With Roasted Shallots

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
Yay for shallots! I made this in the crockpot instead of the oven. Did almost everything the same, no bacon though, and didn't use a tenderloin roast, although I can't remember what cut I did use. Nothing expensive. I made the sauce, browned the meat, then put everything in the crockpot. When it was done I spooned out the sauce and made a gravy. Loved it.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
This is yummy, but very very sweet. I didn't even use the full amount of sugar. Next time I'm going to try 1.5 C of sugar. I did make a few changes, I used half whole wheat flour, and substituted half of the oil for applesauce. I didn't use walnuts, I had none. I used 3 C of zucchini instead of two, which I did not drain. I did one loaf, one tray of muffins (I only have one loaf pan). It's a really good recipe, and lends itself well to substitutions. Allrecipes won't let me review this without giving it stars, I'm only rating it four because the sugar is too much, I can't imagine how sweet it would be had I used the whole amount.
