French Toast Fingers

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2007
Tasty new twist to an old favorite. While my husband & son love French Toast I've never enjoyed it until trying this variation. Similar to Helge I used whole wheat bread, sugar-free preserves, organic milk & eggs, and cinnamon. I also substituted some Splenda instead of confectioners sugar. I can't wait to make this again especially with cream cheese. YUMMY!!

Garlic Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2007
Wonderful starter recipe for my first roasted chicken. My family was VERY impressed! The chicken was cooked perfectly and was moist & juicy. The gravy was also excellent. I will definitely cook this again. Thanks.

Citrus Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
This brine made all the difference in my first turkey. I rubbed the bird with some salt then warmed up the water & other items plus added the additional salt. I wanted to ensure the salt dissolved. I placed in a clean, garbage bag & placed in the fridge. I had to omit the thyme because I had none on hand & used what I did have. The only thing negative to say was that while the bird was perfect the drippings came out too salty. When I used the drippings for the gravy & stuffing they both were edible but too salty for my taste. Nevertheless, I look forward to using this recipe again especially with chicken.

Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
Oh my goodness, this recipe was wonderful. With some advice from others I added the brown sugar, almond extract, and cinnamon. These were a big hit with my family especially my kids. I will definitely make them again. These were also really easy to make.

Poppy Seed Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2007
This was the first muffin recipe that attempted to prepare. I wanted a recipe that included poppy seeds in it. The main problem was when the muffins were finally baked through some still came out rubbery while others were normal. In addition, the recipe was a tad too sweet for my taste - I will omit the glaze next time around. Some of my co-workers loved them & others thought they were too sweet as well.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
These are very yummy indeed. I omitted the bell pepper simply because we didn't have any on hand, but it turned out great. I also made them into tacos instead of a burrito. My vegetarian hubby and I loved them.

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Added all ingredients in the crock pot the night prior and left in fridge while the beans soaked overnight. I used fresh jalepeno, cilantro, and red onion and added everything else as instructed. Due to the advise of another I added 2 packets of sazon which really enhanced the flavor. I opted also not to puree half the soup (my blender is broken). The soup came out perfect and not hot at all - the entire family loved it. I will make this again.

New Year Spinach Fettuccine with Scallops

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2009
Awesome, awesome recipe. I basically followed the recipe except that used whole wheat fettucine, sauteed the spinach with some garlic and omitted the white wine (didn't have any on hand). After reading several reviews swearing by the wine and fearing for the dish to be bland, I instead used several dashes of rice wine vinegar to give a little kick. I will definitely make this again & again.

Holiday Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
This was my first time making butter cookies and wanted a fun Christmas Day activity to do with my boys. I doubled the recipe but followed the recipe exactly as is. To my dismay I didn't have access to a mixer so I attempted to make them entirely by hand. From creaming the butter to mixing in the flour it was definitely work. Following the baking time as listed yielded cookies slightly too doughy for my taste, so I up-ed the baking time to get the crunch/softness that I preferred. The flavor was tasty and subtle - perfect for icing. I will make again & again in the future... but definitely with a mixer.

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
I needed a recipe to ice my holiday butter cookies. This was my first time making icing from scratch so I started out following the recipe to a tee. I ended up adding slightly more milk to get the consistency that I preferred. The flavor was exquisite and the texture was perfect. I got rave reviews from my family. I will make this again & again in the future but will try to get creative with other flavors & colors. Thank you!

Cola Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
Followed instructions mostly as written. Took some advise from other reviews and I browned the chops before baking in oven. I added some minced garlic to the cola/ketchup mixture for added flavor. My family loved it but I thought it was okay - nothing against the recipe - a bit too sweet for my tastebuds. Nevertheless, I am a fan of any recipe that gets my picky kids to eat.

Tomato Asparagus Salad

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
Pretty simple and tasty. I used cherry tomatoes and added some other veggies I had on hand. A great way to use all the great seasonal asparagus on the market.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
Tried the recipe with suggested modification of additional vanilla extract, baking soda, & salt. I don't have a mixer & creamed/mixed all ingredients by hand. The cookies were a hit & I'll make these again. Perhaps I'll omit walnuts next time to shake things up.

Golden Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
I decided to shake up the Thanksgiving routine this year. Normally I make my green bean casserole with creamy mushroom soup so I thought the golden mushroom soup would be interesting. The dish turned out fabulous. The only changes I made was omitting the red pepper and adding chopped, crispy bacon. Yummy!
