Julia's Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
Very delicious! As other commenter mentioned, I used 4 cups water & 4 cups broth. I also used balsamic vinegar, which really did add something special. I doubled the carrots & celery as well as adding 1 chopped zucchini near the end of cooking. I used frozen spinach, which I just tossed in near the end and I pulsed the whole thing with my immersion blender, which made the consistency a little thicker, which was nice. A great success for my first attempt at making lentil soup!

Best Ever Granola

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
This granola is totally addictive. I added about a cup of chopped almonds, and about 1 cup of each dried cherries, dried apricots and raisins. I cooked it 2hrs, stirring every 15-20 minutes. I also used equal parts of banana and prunes, not dates, and added some coconut. YUM! You can add exactly the type of add-ins that you like!

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
This recipe is fantastic! I added 1 bottle of beer to the 3 cups of water, and still added a bit more water to cover the corned beef. As others did, I put the beef at the bottom of the crock pot and added the cabbage only in the last 3 hours of cooking. Everything came out perfect! The potatoes and carrots were NOT over-cooked and the cabbage was just right. My boyfriend and I raved about the flavor and texture of the meat and veggies through the whole meal... not something we do every day!!! AWESOME and super simple recipe. I will make this again for sure!

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
I have used this recipe more often than any other for bread in my machine. I had the notion this morning to put fresh herbs in the loaf I'm going to make for Christmas! :) Once the dough cycle finishes, I plop the dough onto a floured surface and cut in 2 with a large knife. I DON'T shape or dimple, I just invert the dough lumps onto parchment paper, so the floured side is up and bake after it rises. Perfect every time. And I'm sure it'll be even more awesome with fresh herbs!!!

Endless Depth of Meat (BBQ Pulled Pork)

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
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!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
This is possibly the most delicious dessert I have ever tasted. I call them Cheesecake Sandwiches. I made them for a Birthday party and cut them into about 40-ish bite-sized pieces in various shapes (mostly little triangles) They were a HUGE hit!

Green Eggs and Ham Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I wasn't sure about this at first, but the taste only gets better as it sits! I had only a tiny bit of spinach, so I added some cooked chopped broccoli. I also added some garlic to the onions, which I cooked in a little butter, before mixing with the broccoli/spinach. I mixed the baking mix, milk and eggs separately and then stirred everything together, so as to get a more chunky texture. Added the ham and cheese on top of the 9 x 9 glass dish. I cooked it 35 mins @ 325 and an additional 15 mins @ 350 because it was totally jiggly!

Sally's Spinach Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2009
Who would have thought that something with this much spinach could taste so good?!?! I used a whole package of spinach, even though it looked like a lot, 7 medium sized potatoes, 1/2 cup butter 1 small container of sour cream. 2 chopped green onions, 2 cloves garlic. I chose not to put any dill in it. I had no cheddar, so I put 4 Kraft singles on top, covered with some crumbled goat feta, and baked at 400 for about 30 minutes along with a huge fillet of salmon. Absolutely amazing and everyone loved it!

Quinoa and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2013
I adapted this recipe to use what I had on hand. Used one small multi-color pepper and chopped carrots to replace the zucchini and other peppers. I also didn't have a jalapeno pepper or chipotle in adobo, so I just increased the chili powder to about 2-3 tbsp. I used canned corn and no oregano, salt or pepper. I also used fresh tomatoes instead of canned, a bit less garlic and dried bean salad mix instead of black beans. I was a little worried at first that it wouldn't taste good, but this is really delish topped with grated cheddar and a dollop of sour cream. YUM!

I make something very similar with leftover chili and refrigerated biscuit or crescent roll dough. Sooooooo good!

Quick Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I actually used another recipe from this site, but came across this one afterward, and realized it was a little closer to what I had made. I used a can of diced tomatoes, as it was all I has on hand. I added about 1/2 a red pepper as well as some cumin, chili powder and red pepper flaked. A little boring, but very economical and very healthy!

Beef Barley Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2009
I made this for a second time with much better results. I used more beef and made sure to use wine to get a nice depth of flavour. I'm eating leftovers from the freezer today for lunch and it's just as yummy as when I first made it! I will be making this again!

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
I used the ingredients as directed, except I added a bit less water because I wanted it more like stew and I used a leek instead of onion because I had fresh leeks on-hand. It was really delicious! Mine burnt on the bottom of the pot a little, and I found that there were too many dumplings (and BOY do those little buggers ever EXPAND!!) but overall the taste was great. In the future I might use 1 can of Chicken soup and 1 can of mushroom soup, simply because I prefer the flavor. I cut the chicken (only 2 breasts, but I should have used a bit more) into pieces and browned them a little with the leek to speed up the process. The whole thing took only 1 hour.

Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
AWE-SOME! As some other reviewers suggested, I used a can of coconut milk and the balance of regular milk. I also covered the pie with whipped topping and additional toasted coconut. Not only was it a show-stopper, but it was soooo delicious. I will be making this one again for sure!

Apple-Cran-Apricot Oatmeal Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
Awesome! I couldn't find any dried cranberries, so I used copped dried apricots, and they are delish!! I brought 2 dozen to work :) Oh, and I've never used cardamom in this recipe. I never have any on-hand! UPDATE: When I make this recipe, I often use a combination of dried apricots, cranberries and raisins. SO yummy
