Mocha Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2012
Used a heaping tablespoon of instant coffee and had to eyeball the powdered sugar, since I buy in 10 lb bags. Super easy and ingredients I was able to pull from my nearly empty pantry. Used it to frost a red velvet cake. Yum!

Green Tomato Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
Turned out good. Much like zucchini bread but without the little chewy squash strands in it. One problem I did have was I diced the tomatoes in a food processor and just measured it out as is. I propose that if anyone else uses a food processor to strain the liquid out of your tomatoes before adding them to the bowl. My loaves came out a bit too wet and one stuck to the pan and ripped in half. Also, the edges come out so much better in a glass pan than a metal pan. Very good! Will make again!

Kale Chips

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
I didn't like this recipe as written, the chips came out half chewy and half scorched. The family gave it a try, but were unimpressed. Recently I used my dehydrator to dry a bunch of kale, and I think THAT texture was what this recipe was going for. Thanks for the idea!

Sauerkraut for Canning

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
I had my doubts, but it worked. The final product was relatively crisp and mild...and very salty. With a large batch it is difficult to gauge the cabbage weight, so I may have oversalted. I drained the brine and rinsed before cooking and it cut the saltiness, but diminished the taste a bit. It stinks while brewing, and the gasses produced from fermentation make the kraut volume increase a bit, so put it in a slightly larger container than you think it needs. Will stain plastic.

Marty's Thai Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2011
Thumbs up from everyone! 10 year old boy proclaimed, "I think this is the best meal I ever had." Picky 17 year old girl went back for seconds! I did use chicken thigh meat instead of chicken breast, it grilled up great. Served it with julienne carrots and white rice. The sauce was very good, and very easy to make hotter by just adding a bit more curry paste. Definately a keeper! For those who haven't used lemongrass ever, you may want to try the following: Remove most of the woody parts, coarsely chop the stems and crush by hand to release the flavor. Unless you have very very fresh lemongrass, you will just end up with woody slivers if you try to food process.

Seven Layer Taco Dip

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Great recipe. I added taco meat and forgot to add the cheese and it was still wonderful. I can't wait to try it again WITH the cheese! The recipe is far too big to just have at home, so I keep all the ingredients ready but separate so we can eat it a few times in a week. Too good to wait for a party to make!

Marshmallow Fondant

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
This was my first fondant, so I don't have any frame of reference to other recipes. I made two batches, one as described, and one in the microwave. Both came out fine. I did add a bit of glycerine to one of the batches and it was a little more forgiving. Great texture, no ripping, and firm enough to resist inadvertant dents. Made enough to cover and decorate a 9" round cake (one package store bought cake mix). I didn't know how much I needed, so the double batch left me with enough to do a whole other cake! Tip: Give the fondant at least 3 hours on the counter after you refrigerate. I let my fondant warm to room temperature, and I still had to microwave it to soften it up enough to work with. Good taste. Make sure your tools and counter are super clean. The fondant will pick up any little speck of debris. Melting the marshmallows in a pot will show you how dirty your cookware really is!

Fast and Easy Tofu Lo-Mein

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
This recipe has it all. Fast, easy, tasty, cheap, versatile. I can make this once a week and not hear gripes, because I just use whatever vegetables I have on hand, whatever meat I have on hand, and whatever noodles I want to switch things up. The recipe as-is is fine. The man of the house doesn't care for tofu (he says it makes his teeth hurt) so I can switch in any other protein. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe! One of those 'why didn't I think of that' moments.

Sausage and Apple Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
We didn't like this much at all. It was too bready. Like bread pudding with sausage and apples. The flavors just didn't blend well or mesh with our tastes.

Green Tomato Relish

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I never would have guessed that this recipe would be sooooo good! What a great use for green tomatoes! I was uncertain whether the tomatoes should be peeled and cored, but since it didn't specify in the recipe, I just chopped them up whole. It came out fine! (I HATE the whole peeling and coring ordeal) I left sugar as is and added a couple of peppers for some zip. It is all you really need on a hot dog, the mustard, tomato, celery seed, relish, and onion are all there in one package! Great for making thousand island or tartar sauce. I never added relish to my chicken or tuna salad, but I do now! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

Maple Bacon Pancake

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I'm so glad this was a featured recipe, otherwise I would have just blown right by this great recipe. We all had our doubts about what the end product would be, but it satisfied the whole family, from the teen who doesn't like eggs, to me, who doesn't like pancakes. It was enough to satisfy four of us. Easy and a pleasant change from the typical breakfast!

Raspberry Fudge Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
This dessert was a big hit. It does take a long time to prepare, but each step is straight forward. The only change I made was I used an egg and a white in the batter, and used the remaining yolk in the fudge layer. I cut the brownies in 16 pieces and it was almost the correct size for a dessert portion. It is rich, so it really doesn't take much to satisfy. The berry flavor is very subtle and perfect!

Beet Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
Wonderful cake. I substituted 1/3c cocoa powder (no extra sugar) and 1/8c oil for semisweet squares and the cake came out fine. One young consumer said he could taste the beets, but he knew ahead of time they were in there. Nobody else could tell there were beets in there. I certainly couldn't. The cake texture is slightly off, but not displeasingly so. I will definately make again!

Candied Jalapenos

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
I think I may have misunderstood the directions. I had some garden jalapenos to get rid of and tried this recipe on them. I am guessing the peppers need to be pickled first? Did not work on fresh peppers. Needs clarification.

Cucumber Soup I

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2010
This was a good soup to get rid of cucumbers. The comments, ingredients, and directions don't jibe, but they are all easily interchangeable ingredients anyway. I didn't have parsley, but I used dill and cilantro and it still came out well. Not a filling soup, and it was better cold than warm.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
The first time I made this recipe, I dinked around with it too much and it was just ok. The second time around I messed with it a little less and it was great! This is such a good recipe (even my boyfriend likes these) that I made it a bit bigger to fit a 15.5 x 10.5 in pan. Use 3 cups oats and leave every thing else pretty much the same and it still works well. I used maltitol instead of brown sugar and there was not a noticeable difference in taste.

No-Cook Egg-Free Cheesecake Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
This would be yummy poured into a graham cracker crust before freezing and topped with some cherry pie filling. Also would work as a low-carb recipe if Sorbitol or Maltitol is substituted for sugar (just make sure it is fully dissolved in the cream before adding)

Thousand Island Dressing II

No need to buy thousand island for reubens anymore. This is better than store bought, quick, and easy!

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
I made this with strawberries. Following the recipe exactly yielded a pile of unsavory mush with a tasty crust.
