Easy Breakfast Strata

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2015
I prepared this dish last night and refrigerated overnight before baking this morning (I'm not sure if this was a good idea, but it seemed like one at the time). I also halved the recipe, used milk instead of half and half and forgot the spinach completely, so I added a few extra green onions. I couldn't find any ham and ended up with deli ham, which wasn't the best. The recipe would have been great with leftover ham. So I will make this again with a few tweaks: not forget the spinach, THINLY slice the green onions, as listed and refrigerate only 15-20 minutes before baking. (You know, follow the recipe a little better!) Mine was quite 'wet' and I don't know if it's because of the overnight soak, or the fact that my dish probably wasn't big enough. I think an 8 x 8 pan would be a better size if you half the recipe.

Oven Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2015
These sweet potatoes are YU-MMY! Mine were a little burnt at 35 minutes but I missed the direction to turn them frequently! BE SURE TO TURN THEM! (Unless you like crispy-burnt on one side) I crushed the garlic and added it after the oil so it dispersed throughout and added salt and pepper both before and after cooking. The balsamic vinegar after cooking takes them over the edge! I will definitely be making these again.

Cheesiest Potato Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2015
Oh MAN this soup is good! I added some garlic to the onions which cooking, used vegetable broth and replaced the heavy cream with some Greek yogurt and a bit of milk. I seasoned only with salt and pepper (no cayenne or dill because I just wasn't feeling it). I don't think I used quite as much cheese either. As others suggested, I used a potato masher rather than an immersion blender to leave some chunks. I will be making this again!

Awesome Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2015
Oh my gosh, this smells so awesome when cooking! I use about a 4lb shoulder and grab them now whenever they come on sale. I don't bother doubling the sauce and use 1 cup of each ketchup and BBQ sauce. I also use real mustard instead of dried. I shred the pork a few hours before I want to serve so that the meat has a chance to soak up some sauce. I serve it on Onion buns with coleslaw on top! YUM! I brought this to a party and my friends called it the Endless Depth of Meat. Awesome :)

Julia's Awesome Butter Tarts

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2015
These butter tarts were outstanding! I used some pre-made pie crust and molded it into muffin tins. I replaced the pecans with chopped toasted coconut chips and I doubled the raisins. The recipe made 24 mini tart-lettes and 8 bigger ones, with the tiniest bit of leftover 'batter'. I was a little concerned that the bigger tarts weren't cooked enough, so next time I would cook them at 350 for about 25 minutes. Even after sitting for 24hrs, the bigger tarts are quite runny when you bite into them. Of course, some people might say that adds to their appeal! Overall, a great recipe! I might add a few mini chocolate chips to the next batch! Update: I made a second (1/2) batch of these, adding a few chocolate chips, and using Tenderflake tart shells. Baked at 350 for 20 minutes. They could have used 2 extra minutes, but I kinda love the gooey middle :)

Garlic Scape Pesto

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2014
I have to admit, this recipe wasn't my favorite. I had never used garlic scapes before, and I doubt I will again. Scapes are quite tough and the resulting purée remained slightly chunky, even with additional olive oil. I served the pesto over spaghetti and had to eat some of it on toasted baguette to cut the intensity. It's REALLY garlicky and super strong. I think it might be good if you turned it into a cream sauce or added it to other dishes as a garlic replacement, but as a straight-up pesto, I'm not a fan.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: May 30, 2014
I made this crust last night for the first time. I think it will take a bit more practice to make perfect. I rolled the dough a little too thick. But the taste was really good. I will be experimenting with this recipe more in the future.

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: May 30, 2014
This pie is out of this world. I had never made pecan pie before as I was always turned off by the corn syrup. Well, pecans were on sale at Costco when I went last week and my the mini pie plates I ordered came in yesterday, so my mini pecan pies were fortuitous. I used the recipe for Butter Flaky Pie Crust from this site and followed the recipe as indicated in the video. Since I was making mini pies, I thought I'd have to cook them less, but 10 minutes @ 400, and 20 minutes at 350 seemed pretty perfect. I will be enjoying this recipe and sharing it with others!!! Thank you!

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
Last night was my second attempt at cabbage rolls after a horrible failure the first time. I made this recipe pretty much exactly as written and the cabbage rolls were seriously delicious! Next time I would season the meat a little more with lemon juice, Worcestershire and some garlic powder. I might also make my own sauce as I'm not overly fond of canned soup. An excellent and fairly quick recipe!

Simple Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2014
This Parm was great! I pounded the chicken and breaded it in egg and bread crumbs, then pan fried and transferred to a wire rack over a cookie sheet, topped each with cheese and baked at 350 for about 15 minutes (only because the broil setting on my oven sets off my smoke detector!) I used jarred sauce because it's what was on hand. I served it with spaghetti squash topped with the same store-bought sauce and more cheese. My boyfriend raved, which is rare!
