Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
I made this for St. Paddy's and was worried that it might be overpowering with the beer. At the first bit the whole table was silent, then my husband very quietly said "this is awsome". Great easy recipe. I did add the seasoning packet that came with the meat and I'm glad I did. Also, I used Smithwick's as most of my guests aren't huge beer drinkers. Fantastic!

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
Awsome! This was my first attempt at soda bread, so I had my husband grab a loaf of bread at the store as a backup. No one touched the back up!! This bread was crusty on the outside and soft inside. I did follow another reviewers suggestion and baked it at a lower temp (350) for a few more minutes.

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
My one year old son and I loved these, my 3 y/o daughter and husband wouldn't touch them. Definately adjust the cocoa to 1/3c and the coffee to 2 tsp.

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
Good base recipe. I made it as written but would definately use much more spice next time.

Spanish-Style Quinoa

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
Very good recipe, it was nice and spicy but it needed salt! I also tossed some cooked shrimp in a tbsp of smoked paprika and added it to the quinoa at the end to warm it up and also a half a can of corn. Served it in green peppers (that I boiled to soften). Hubby loved it, definately will make this again!

Spinach Turkey Roll

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
My husband felt the need to open a bottle of wine to accompany this MEATLOAF! Who knew a pound of ground turkey could become something so AWESOME!! Tweaked the recipe a bit for what I had on hand: Quaker oats instead of breadcrumbs, no ground mustard- used sage. Excellent, I've already made it twice!!

Garbanzo Tomato Pasta Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
Really good, healthy soup. I used light red kidney beans (just what I was in the mood for), and tossed in some squash and zucchini I had on hand. Also, because I love soup but hate the 1000mg sodium per serving, I used a sodium free boullion and added extra spice. Very good.

Good. Not great. A little on the soggy side, hubby wasn't too impressed.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2010
Phenomenal! Definately use fresh tomatos (I used plum) and fresh basil if you can. I think the fresh ingredients really make it pop!!!

Cappuccino Mousse Trifle

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Excellent!! Like a lazy man's tiramisu! Quick easy but very impressive. I used fat free, sugar free jello instant pudding and fat free whipped cream (2 16oz TUBS!). I would recommend letting it sit overnight so that the coffee really melds with the pound cake.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Excellent, I definately needed to add a little more bake time because I didn't drain the zucchini. Held up well to the low fat substitutions i made. Freezes very well!

Uglies

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I followed other reviewers advice and cut down on the BBQ sauce, but they ended up really dry. Kids didn't like them at all, but the hubby ate like 6 of them (although he said he wasn't too impressed). Very reminicsent of sloppy joes ( or in our case - not sloppy eanough!)

Maple Carrot Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Ver good, made these without the frosting (I bought some instead). Did make a few tweaks to make it a little healthier (less oil, Splenda, half wheat flour) and they held up well. The kids loved em and I'm happy with anything I can sneak a veggie into!

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
I'm giving this 5 stars because although it was very tasty, the prep time won me over. 5 minutes to dice an onion and open some cans? Heck ya, bring it! Made it with chicken stock as I didn't have any beer on hand. Good easy weekday recipe!

Grilled Venison Backstrap

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
HOLY COW! Er...Deer! This is fantastic! It's amazing how bacon can totally transform any dish! Not a huge fan of venison, but my dad is an avid hunter so we end up with lots of meat. I was looking for something that would cut through some of the gamey-ness and this definately did it. It doesn't mask the flavor of the deer meat, but rather makes it WAAAY better! This will be a standard venison recipe from now on!
