Spicy Cucumber Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
An excellent soup, totally defying the cliche "cool as a cucumber". This is one of the few recipes on here that I've ever cooked as is without any changes.

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
This is an excellent recipe! I made a few changes of course. I made my own stock, doubled the cheese, added in a can of creamed corn, and used a can of evaporated milk in place of the milk (I made a huge double recipe so you'd only need 1/2 a can for a single recipe). I also used a 1 lb bag of frozen yellow corn and a 1 lb bag of frozen white corn, added in 2 cloves of minced garlic and peppercorn melange.

Quick Cheeseburger Pie

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
Excellent recipe - just what I was looking for! It's nice to find a recipe that doesn't resort to processed store crusts that are hard to find without trans fat. The only thing I did differently was add in some mustard.

Oven Fresh Seasoned Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
By far my favorite potato wedge recipe. The spices can easily be modified to suit personal tastes.

Emily's Famous Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2010
This really is an excellent recipe! I loved both the taste and the texture. I doubled the cinnamon since we like a stronger cinnamon taste and used dark brown sugar since that's what we had.

Daddy's Popcorn

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
This is an excellent recipe. I've never tried to make popcorn on the stove before and I was very glad to find a recipe that explained how simple it is. I recommend medium-high heat and to preheat your pan first adding the oil and butter in immediately before adding in the kernals. Spice things up with pepper or herbs or some Parmesan cheese.

Kentucky Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
I make this recipe every time I want biscuits. It's ideal for making fun heart or shamrock shaped biscuits to add a little fun to your meal.

Ham And Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
This is exceptionally delicious! If you haven't tried Frittata before you most definitely have to. Don't be intimidated by trying to make something new. If you can make an omelet you can make this.

Easy Tilapia with Wine and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2010
I'm not sure why so many people rated this recipe so highly. It had so much liquid in it that it was a soggy mess as another reviewer said. If I ever try it again I would reduce the wine to 1/4 cup instead of a full cup. The wine overwhelmed all the other flavors in this dish. I added in some Parmesan Cheese and baked it in the oven at 400 degrees since it's only 20 degrees outside and grilling it would be a bit cold. Also, I substituted Pollock for Tilapia but I seriously doubt that would change anything.

Gnocchi with Sage-Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
This is an extremely good recipe! I added in some frozen spinach. That is the only change I made. One of the few recipes that is perfection as it is written!

Mushroom Blue Cheese Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
This really is an excellent recipe. I had intended to make a similar recipe using beef when I ran across this one and I just had to make it instead. I took a few minor ideas from the other recipe and added it to this one: habanera Tabasco sauce, chives, & Worcestershire sauce. When I got it mixed up I decided that it would probably make an incredible meatloaf so instead of making patties out of it I formed it into a loaf and baked it in a bread pan at 350 degrees for 75 minutes. It turned out mouthwateringly delicious.

Stuffed Pepper Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
What I liked so much about this recipe is the cooking method and basic ingredients. Most recipes I found only used one or two peppers at most and that didn't sound appealing for a soup with "stuffed pepper" in the title. This is an excellent base recipe. I find it extremely hard to completely cook a recipe as it is written and this recipe was a great recipe to be able to modify to suit my own tastes. I added some diced dried red chili peppers, basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, and peppercorn melange to the green peppers and meat while they were cooking so that the spices would have a chance to bloom. I also used 1lb extra lean ground beef rather than just 1/2 pound. I added in extra garlic and substituted beef broth for some of the water. I didn't have any crushed tomatoes or juice so I substituted 12 oz of tomato paste and 24 oz of water.

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
I'm not sure if it was me over mixing it or what, but these turned out flat and gummy. They tasted great, though. In retrospect I should have tried adding more flour to thicken the batter. They cooked all the way through, though so in that respect they were not mushy.

Steamed Radishes

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
I used my steamer and added lemon juice, butter, and dill weed. I was stunned at how delicious these are! It never occurred to me to cook radishes before, but I am so glad to find a way to enjoy them in some other way than plain or in a salad.

Onion Cheese Biscuits

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
This is a really good recipe. I made my own "baking mix" because I like to control what ingredients goes into what I make, and I think that stuff is just a waste of money. (For the mix: 3/4 cup unbleached white flour, 3/4 cup of stone ground wheat flour, 1 1/2 tbsp Smart Balance Light Buttery Spread, 1/2 tsp salt) I also added 1 clove of fresh minced garlic, 1 tbsp of Flax seeds (great tasting source of fiber), and 1 tsp of gluten (makes it nice and fluffy) to the biscuit dough. I didn't have Poppy seeds, so I sprinkled the tops with Sesame seeds.

Cheesy Baked Cauliflower

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
The tangy taste of the mustard/mayo does not go well with it at all.

Saucy Lima Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
This is pretty good, though I'm not sure how fair my rating and review is since I used ultra skim milk instead of half-and-half. I also added thyme and oregano and cooked it in a pressure cooker. Still, the herbs added a really nice twist to the beans so I think it is definitely something everyone should try. I don't think it really needs an overly rich sauce to be enjoyable.
