Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2013
Wonderful cookies. So soft and chewy and they look store bought they are so pretty. For Christmas we rolled them in colored sugar and gave them as gifts to our neighbors. Very quick and easy to make! My whole family love them. A keeper for sure.

Turkey Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
Yum! Used leftover T-day turkey and swapped out 1/2 red onion for the green onion but otherwise followed the recipe. This spread was excellent and my kids enjoyed it on crackers as a snack and it was good on bread with tomato, lettuce and bacon slices. The only change I would make would be to add the red pepper with the mayo so that it would be chunkier and have a better texture - but that is just a personal preference! Otherwise this is a go to recipe for turkey leftovers.

Pork and Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2011
I've made this a few times and have found the best way was to chop everything up and throw it into the crockpot on low for about 8 hours. Instead of water and beef bouillon I substitute a 24oz can of tomato juice and add water as needed. I've also added carrots and celery for extra veggies and changed from pork sausage to leftover pork loin diced into pieces. Whatever I've added it takes well and makes a rich and flavorful soup that is great on cold, rainy days.

Chipotle Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
I love this soup and appreciate that it is so easily customizable. I have used leftover turkey breast in place of chicken, and a can of chicken broth instead of the bouillon and water. I also find this is a great soup to cook in the crock pot. Just toss everything in and come back in a few hours. My husband likes it a bit more stew like so the last few times I have used cornstarch tempered in the broth to thicken it up a bit. But great either way.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
Great basic recipe that takes customization well. I use about 1/4 cup diced green onion, add 1 tsp of garlic powder and also a dash of sesame chili oil. That really kicks it up a notch. Leave it in the fridge overnight to really blend the flavors and then this makes a great lunch spread on crackers, pita or even just by itself.

Purple Plum Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
Great recipe. Decided to make it a cobbler and save on calories and fat. I have made this many times and like to add different fruits to the plum mixture. My favorite is dried cranberries - adds a tart kick to the sweetness. Have also used blueberries, cherries and golden raisins. Each was great! My neighbor has a prolific plum tree so this will be our go to favorite for years!

Ham 'n' Noodle Hot Dish

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
Quite yummy. Was looking for a way to use the last of a ham leftover from Sunday dinner. Made a few changes based on what I had on hand. Used a whole bag of frozen mixed veggies in place of the peas, also added some diced celery and garlic to the mix. Used egg noodles and loved the topping. It was super quick and easy to make and my kids ranging from toddler to teenager loved it. Will definitely make again!

Spinach Cheese Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
I love spinach and am always keen to try dishes that use it. I did make a few changes to suit my taste. I cooked a few slices of bacon and then sauted diced onion and doubled the garlic amount in the bacon grease. I added the spinach and heated it up. I also used rigatoni pasta as that was all I had. It was very tasty and made for a quick dinner!

Fresh Grapefruit Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2009
Good when you make a few changes. I had several fresh grapefruit I needed to use up so I used my juicer and added all grapefruit juice and no milk. I also put in about half a grapefruit finely diced into the batter. It added the perfect tangy kick and really tasted like grapefruit. I also made a glaze of powdered sugar and grapefruit juice to drizzle over it. Made a flavorful cake with the changes!

The Best Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2009
Versatile recipe. I made it exactly as described and loved it. Then I started changing out the cheese, left out the sesame seeds and changed the bread. Each time they turned out well. I also put the two halves together and cooked this in my sandwich press. That worked well too. Great base recipe to modify to suit your taste.

Cream of Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
Awesome recipe! Very versatile. I have made this multiple times and can't get enough. It is great the way it is written but also good wtih changes. I have added diced celery, carrots and green peppers to the onions and softened those. Once because I ran out of milk I used a can of evaporated milk instead - that made for a creamier soup. I have also added finely diced jalapenos for a hit of heat and also added diced tomatos (both fresh and canned) to change things up. Everytime it comes out great and I get so many compliments. This freezes well and I keep a quart or two frozen.

Ann's Shrimp Etouffee

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
Excellent recipe. Super easy to make too. Only made a few changes by taking out mushrooms (kids hate them!) and adding about a cup of diced tomatos - had half a beefsteak tomato that I needed to use. Served over rice and it was wonderful!

Baked Shrimp with Feta and Tomato

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2009
I have made this twice now. The first time I made it exactly as it was written and served over linguine noodles - it was wonderful! The next time I added diced green pepper and diced onions at the same time as the garlic. I cooked until soft. I found I was out of feta and so used grated parmesan. Served over rice and it was a wonderful and filling dinner. Kids liked it better with parmesan (they aren't fans of feta!). Highly recommend as a quick and filling meal!

White Chocolate Macadamia Cranberry Dreams

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
Very soft and delicious cookies. I used Hazelnuts instead of Macadamia and they were still as good. I have made these several times for cookie exchanges and holiday gifts for friends. Each time they are eaten quickly and the compliments flowed. I do have to bake them for about 14-15 minutes to get them done but otherwise great recipe!

Chicken Breast Stuffed with Spinach Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
What a delicious dish! I have made this several times and it takes substitutions or additions very well. I have added pine nuts, mushroom, garlic, onions and replaced the Blue Cheese with Feta, added Oregano and Basil and also wrapped the bacon around the chicken and baked it instead of putting the bacon in the stuffing. Any combination I make has turned out well and this is my go to recipe for guest dinners. I can make it ahead of time and take it from the fridge to the oven when I get home from work! It always looks like it was difficult to make and my guests love it!

Cranberry-Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2008
Super moist and very good. I have made these multiple times and each time they turn out great. Rarely do they last long as the kids/co-workers gobble them up! They also take additions well and I have added white chocolate morsels or different spices such as ginger or nutmeg. These cookies always stay soft and aren't too sweet. Excellent recipe!

Roast Beef with Coffee

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2008
Very moist and flavorful. I didn't mince the garlic cloves though. I just inserted them whole into slits in the meat. Before serving I pulled them out, mashed them up and added them to the mashed potatos I was serving as a side. Yum! Had plenty of juices to make gravy. Made a great meal and super easy too!

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2008
Excellent treats. Turned out very moist and flavorful. Filled my house with a wonderful apple, cinnamon smell that brought my neighbor over to see what I baked! I did double the recipe and made a 16x9 size pan. I also added a 1/2 tsp each of cloves and nutmeg. Really kicked up the flavor. Will definitely make again!

French Veal Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2008
Just ok. Followed recipe exactly except did add diced garlic with the onion in the dish. Veal did come out tender but the bread crumb crust wasn't that flavorful. Needed more spices or something. Family wished we had just simply grilled the chops and enjoyed them that way.

Fresh Green Beans, Fennel, and Feta Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This was my first time eating fennel. Recipe is a great way to use it! I did add some sliced tomatos in the last step and they added a great color and taste. Not sure I will make this often as I don't usually have fresh green beans or fennel but definitely something for a special occasion.
