Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
Yum! My whole family will be enjoying this gnocci all year. From pulling the already cooked potatoes out of the freezer, to putting the dishes in the dishwasher, I was in the kitchen about 2 hours. I thought the recipe was perfect, and didn't feel the need to change a thing, though I didn't actually measure how much flour I put in. Like other reviewers have said, the dough has to be obnoxiously sticky. I roll mine into logs, keeping the outside coated with lots of flour. I had enough potatoes to make 4 batches of the recipe, so I froze my well-floured dumplings individually on cookie sheets, then moved them into a baggie. Now they're ready to boil whenever we get the craving for gnocci. My favorite preperation is to saute some garlic and sage in butter, then add the boiled gnocci just long enough to get a little crisp on the outside. Mmmmm!

Tzatziki

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
This is an absolute staple at our house. It's definitely better on day two. I don't drain my yogurt, but I do shred the cucumber into a cheese cloth, and squeeze out as much of the liquid as I can, and it seems quite thick enough.

Easy Baked Oatmeal

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
I make this every time I need to feed breakfast to a crew. I add 3 apples, coarsely chopped, and a bunch of cinnamon, some nutmeg, and a pinch of ground cloves. Everyone loves it, and I will continue to make it again and again.

Pan Fried Swiss Chard

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
So good! I should have made twice as much for my family of 4. I used kale, and just chopped it into rough inch-and-a-half bits. I also used canadian bacon (it's what I had) and minced 2 garlic cloves instead of the garlic paste. I couldn't believe how fast it went at the table!

Robin's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Yum! I did use 2 small eggs, omitted the dry peanuts, used nearly a cup of chuncky peanut butter, and added 3/4 cup chocolate chips (as previous reviewers had reccommended). Because of my changes, the dough was pretty sticky, and I wasn't really able to do the fork smooshy thing, but they were still delicious! I was able to make 30 good size cookies with one batch of dough. 10-11 minutes in my oven made them perfectly chewey, just the way I love them! Thanks for the great recipe!!

Bar-B-Que Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2009
Holy Cow! This is the best bar-b-que sauce I have ever tried, much less made. It was easier to throw this together than to go to the store and buy some. I used a sugar substitute, because I didn't have brown sugar, and it was fantastic. Thank You!!

Cheese Blintzes

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2009
Holy Cow! I was really impressed with these. They were so easy to put together. As suggested by others, I did need more butter and cinnamon/sugar mix, and I cooked them for 15 minutes. I also used half the cream cheese, omitted the milk, and added a cup of cottage cheese. I could also see it being great with ricotta. I will absolutely make these again.

Baked Potato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
It was a blustery day, and I had most of the ingredients for this soup around the house, so I thought I'd give it a try. I am so glad I did! I did make a few changes: I didn't remove the bacon from the pot after it was crisped, I just added the onion and garlic right in, and I think I used more of that then was asked for. Like other reviewers, I increased the flour to 1/4 cup, and will probably use more next time. I left the skins on the potatoes, diced and roasted them before adding them to the soup. Since I had fresh basil, I chopped about 3 Tbsps, and added it with the heavy cream I had (instead of half and half). I also left out the hot sauce, thinking it could be added as needed to individual bowls. Everyone agreed that the flavor of this soup was wonderful! The only problem I had was that I should have doubled it for 4 people! Thank you so much for this recipe.

Chinese Pork Buns (Cha Siu Bao)

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
This recipe was very time consuming, but ultimately worth it. It made large, plump buns that my family adored. I did add another 1/4 cup of water to the dough, and I could have used almost twice the meat and sauce filling. I think I'll make the dough sweeter next time. I will absolutely try this recipe again.
