Banana Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
Simple to make but look and taste like you spent hours on them! I love recipes that use what is commonly on-hand in the kitchen. I used 1/2 wheat flour and skipped the streusel topping and the muffins still turned out beautifully. A must try.

Herbed Green Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
Fantastic recipe. Used thyme in place of savory because I'd never heard of savory before. Turned out beautifully - used whole grean beans and the presentation was stellar.

Burgundy Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2010
Simple to fix, tender, and incredibly flavorful! This recipe is sensational and presents well on the plate. I omitted celery and used honeycrisp apple slices instead. Served with garlic mashed potatoes and wilted spinach.

Mexican Style Shredded Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
Phenomenal recipe. Like many others, I could not find chipotle sauce to save my life, so I opted to use Adobo chilies in chipotle sauce. They were easily removed at the end of cooking. We enjoyed this recipe "carnita" style: splashed with fresh lime, sprinkled with sea salt and combined with avocado, cilantro and red onion on whole wheat tortillas.

Wild Rice and Asparagus Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
Simple and delicious. I used plain old olive oil in lieu of peanut, and the tip regarding throwing out the tough bottoms of the asparagus was very helpful.

Garlic-Cilantro Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2010
After reading the reviews I opted to crush the garlic rather than mince it - turned out beautifully. I substituted dried cilantro for fresh (about a 1/2 T) and added a little white wine. Superb!

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
Almond extract - genius! This icing made our sugar cookies look very professional and I appreciated the tip about the corn syrup substitution from kstuff.

Hot Chocolate Mix I

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2009
This mix could use a little more creamer for body but otherwise it is quite good and super easy to make. It yielded enough to fill an empty 26 oz Swiss Miss container. I used 3T in hot water and sprinkled it with a little cinnamon for fun. Yum!

Soft Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Cookie dough is the first test for me - this recipe made the BEST pb cookie dough I have ever tasted! I used a melon baller to scoop them onto the cookie sheet instead of rolling them into balls. Very quick, very easy, and delicious!

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
Seriously incredible! I used a mixture of all purpose flour and wheat flour and they turned out great!

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
This is a great recipe. Like others, I used double dressing and a few less black beans - the results were phenomenal. Rave reviews all around. Would be curious to try a little garlic next time!

Veggie Egg Scramble

Fabulous and easy to prepare. Tastes as though you put more time into it than was actually required.

Steph's Summer Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
This is not for salsa traditionalists! Prepare with an open mind and you'll be pleasantly surprised. I really enjoyed the use of fresh herbs, and I added some coarsely chopped red onion. Next time I will add more garlic and maybe some jalapenos for extra flavor!

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
Received rave reviews for this dish at a gathering of friends. Cheated and used pre-cooked bacon - still turned out great!

Zucchini Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
I'm not a fan of quiche, but this recipe looked too pretty to pass up! I felt it was a little too salty, but everyone else thought it was great. The presentation of this dish is spectacular.

Fiesta Pinwheels

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2007
Took these bite size pinwheels to a potluck and received great feedback! Used a very soft flour tortilla; will probably try a firmer jalepeno or tomato flavored wrap next time.

Pizza On The Grill I

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2007
Excellent. This was my first time using dry active yeast, so I had to do some research in order to proof the yeast. I didn't have time to punch down the dough and let it rise for another hour after adding the basil and garlic, and it still turned out fine!
