Cranberry Hootycreeks

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2008
Great cookies! Used dark chocolate chips and had some macadamia nuts around that I chopped up. Taste so great and wonderful for Mother's day.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2013
On the sauce, I followed the recipe except for the dill. I hate dill. Well, I did add 1/8 tsp of ancho chile powder. I so wanted to fry the fish, but my new diet and inner voice said no.... This time I listened. I pan sautéed and seasoned the fish with salt and pepper and chili powder. I free styled a cabbage slaw. I finely shredded some cabbage and a carrot. I made a slaw sauce with some honey, lime juice, oregano, and cumin. It was amazing. This Recipe is great because the sauce and slaw can be made ahead of time and can be doubled or tripled for multiple meals during the work week. If you pan cook the fish or even bake it, dinner can be done in 15 or 20 minutes if the sauces are pre made. I made a guacamole and added it to the tacos. A squeeze of lime makes these perfect. I made these with California rock cod. This fish didn't cook well in the pan, it is a soft flake that kind of fell apart. This could also be user error (points to self). Plus side, the fish was incredibly moist and fresh tasting.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
I have a nut allergy, so I used the more traditional pine nuts. I tend to like a spicy pesto, so I doubled the garlic. Turned out yummy. The key to a great pesto is not over chopping.

Halloumi Cheese Fingers

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
This is really great and the lemon adds a great acidic touch. Paired with a side salad with cucumbers and you have a healthy meal. You can also grill this cheese over indirect heat.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Great recipe. Be sure to use quality vanilla for the frosting. Orange zest would not be amiss either. Made recipe as is and it is amazing.

Chef John's Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
I used 1/2 tsp less sugar added some allspice, 1/8 tsp clove and no oil. It was great. I added milk, but will try the recipe as is next time. They were pretty fluffy with 1/4 c more milk, but might be better without the added fluid. Oh, I made this recipe for 3 servings and used a whole egg.

Awesome Sausage, Apple and Cranberry Stuffing

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
I have made this stuffing 3 times now. I always cook it outside of the bird in a casserole dish. I, like other reviewers, add more broth and I also add wine. I generally add a few dashes more herbs and I usually leave out the turkey liver. I live near Willie Bird's turkey farm which makes an amazing cajun turkey sausage which is perfect and spicy for this dish. I add about 4 cloves of garlic to the recipe since I can't seem to cook without it. I also throw in a handful or tow extra of cranberries and it is amazing.

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out great. That said, it was more like a cake. I might use this as a cake recipe since my Southern boyfriend said about 10 times that it was amazing. Next time I might use a citrus cream cheese frosting for the cake.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
This recipe is so simple. My boyfriend gave me "Mom's advise" cook it until you hear it popping and then once the popping seems to slow down take it off the heat & cool. We added cinnamon, and clove (maybe 1/8) to taste. Keep it in the background flavor- that spice that you just can't put your finger on. I also did half white/half brown sugar since I'm trying to find ways to use up the 5lb bag I bought.

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
My fiancée is from Mississippi and he made basically this recipe from heart. We used two over large beets with greens grown in the garden. We sautéed the greens with no oil and one single slice of bacon. Honestly, I think one slice of bacon vs all the oil in this recipe might be better, plus it adds an amazing amount of flavor. It you want to be really authentic, use green chile vinegar. The vinegar really brings out the flavor just try it.

German Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
I couldn't get my lentils soft in a slow cooker. I've had problems with beans too, so I don't think this is the recipes fault and I didn't deduct stars. I don't like caraway, so I didn't use it. I doubled the carrots cause that's my favorite part. I didn't have a ham hock or cubed ham, but I did have a 1.3lb smoked turkey leg. Amazing. I have turkey thighs smoked locally at Willie birds, so I am lucky to try that next time. Oh, I added 6 cups broth based on other reviewers. I like a thick lentil soup, and this was a little too loose for me. Next time I'll use 5 cups.

Summer Squash and Sausage Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2013
We left out the potatoes and parsley because we didn't have any. Also no cayenne because I used 3 Fresno chilies which are hotter than jalapeños. My fiancée forgot the cheese which I will definitely use next time. I used it with fresh sourdough rolls, but I think crusty day olds would be even better. Great summer leftovers soup. I bet this freezes well too.

Turkey Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
My new favorite pot pie recipe. I pre baked my crust and added the filling. I made a roux first, then added the broth. Turkey was cooked with the veggies. I added some sage cause I like that herb. Super tasty.

Steak Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
We had some steak, tomatoes, and lettuce and threw it together with the salad dressing from this recipe. Lacking red wine vinegar, we used apple cider ving. and it was wonderful. I liked it so much, I made it the next day for lunch. Definitely a keeper.

Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Very tasty. The flavor improves with age. At first taste (after 10 minutes) it was eh. But we loved it the next day for a dinner salad. Amazing on a southwestern salad.

Down-Home Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
The water at the beginning for the peas I lightly salted. Used one large smoked turkey drumstick cut the meat off and added it and the bones to the stew (fished the bones out later). Couldnt find the okra. Used 1 carrot, 3 celery stalked plus 2 cups of veggies I cooked with a turkey for thanksgiving. Followed cooking instructions. Turned out great :) Makes a lot of soup, I may halve it next time.

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
I used plain yogurt and added either oregano or thyme. It goes without saying, I added extra garlic. Very tasty!
