Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
very quick muffin to make... as a variation, i have also used various flavors of yogurt instead of buttermilk (the 6 oz containers, diluted with the necessary amount of milk to make a cup)... next time will use regular oats instead of quick... also, use the full amount of sugar :)

Sesame Parmesan Zucchini

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
Great side dish, although preparing only 1 zucchini is kind of ridiculous...

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
very very very nice recipe. I used margarine in mine (1/2 batch) and didn't chill the batter. Next time might only bake for about 8 minutes to get an even more brownie-like consistency :)

Chocolate Eclair Dessert

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
This took me literally 5 minutes to assemble, and the recipe was absolutely on point about how many graham crackers I would end up using (some complained that more were required). I also made the chocolate sauce provided by some of the reviewers, and that sauce deserves a 5 all on its own!!! Yummy!!!

Poor Man's Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
Very good cookie for when you're out of eggs and don't want to cream butter. I used margarine instead of shortening, and probably dumped a bit more water than stated, because my dough ended up needing some more flour (about 2/3 cup) in order for me to be able to roll it. I used about 1/2 cup less brown sugar because I knew I was going to add raisins. Flattened them a bit and baked all in one go in the oven, so baked for 14 minutes instead of ten. Next time I will probably flatten them some more, as they don't spread out at all, but they sure were pretty tasty, at least as tasty as those cookies requesting lots of eggs and butter and etc. UPDATE: This time I was careful to put the correct amount of water, but the texture of the cookie was actually worse this way. I have determined that adding about 3 tbsp more boiling water and ~2/3 cups more flour (or as needed to make a fairly sticky dough, but firm enough to roll balls), makes a more tender and less flat and sticky cookie (now I understand the caramelized puke comment of one of the other reviewers... If recipe is followed exactly, the final product looks very unnapetizing, dark in color, sticky in appearance, and the oats taste raw and very chewy). P.S. I keep using margarine instead of shortening, as I never have shortening in the house.

Buffalo Chicken Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
I would like to give the creator of this salad a solid four. However, as written, this salad is a tiny bit dry after sitting in the fridge and cooling. I used homemade bleu cheese dressing, which was runnier than commercial brands, so I don't know how others would fare. I would suggest adding a half a cup or more of ranch dressing right before serving for additional creaminess. (BTW, I doubled the green peppers and celery)

Seafood Salad Supreme

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
I used this recipe as a base for an alternative shrimp pasta salad (I didn't have all the ingredients for my usual critically acclaimed :) salad, so was looking for a different recipe). I omitted the crab, mozzarella and almonds, didn't have Old Bay (subbed paprika, garlic and onion powders, celery seed, salt, pepper), and added 1 chopped cucumber. For the dressing, subbed more than half the mayonnaise with lowfat plain yogurt. Very very good. Although I do want to try with Old Bay sometime :) Thank you for the recipe!

Tracy's Tomato Artichoke Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
Had a chance to make this salad last minute when needed for a picnic... Added some feta cheese, cubed, as well as italian dressing instead of using the artichoke marinade (my artichokes were only canned salted). Very good and easy when out of other ingredients...

Banana Pancakes I

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
Taking into account the reviews of gumminess, I only added one banana to the batter. Well... the pancakes were still gummy inside.

Storybook Gingerbread Men

Reviewed: May 28, 2011
I made these with margarine instead of shortening, but forgot that margarine does not firm up in the fridge very well. Had to freeze the batter in order to be able to even roll it into balls (there was no way I was going to be able to roll it out - it would have needed at least 1/2 cup more flour than that). However, my mistake actually made these SOOOOO SOFT! Delicious flavor (doubled the cinnamon only) without being too spicy. YUMMY

Cheesy Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
Here's how to really simplify and make this recipe lower fat without sacrificing the flavor. 1)Reduce butter to 2 tbsp, max, and can even substitute favorite oil 2)Replace heavy cream with equal amount of milk (any fat content) mixed with 1 tsp cornstarch 3)If using frozen spinach, defrost in microwave in original package(s) instead of in another skillet (seriously, who wants to wash an additional dish?) 4)Consider adding just a tiny dash of nutmeg :) 5)Consider squeezing an additional clove or two of garlic directly into the skillet right before turning off the heat, for a more robust garlicky flavor

Two Tier Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
I made a shortbread crust for this pie, then brushed it with white chocolate which I then cooled. For the filling I used 8 oz cream cheese and 1/4 cup regular sugar. For the sauce/topping, instead of grenadine, i used a red juice i had (happened to be raspberry), added 1 cup fresh strawberry puree, and 1 additional tablespoon cornstarch. This made it even more amazing. Next time I might even add a tsp of plain gelatin to get the sauce/topping to be a little more stable. EXCELLENT pie

My Canadian Friend's Bean Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Wow, this soup is amazing! For those who would like to adapt this to dry beans, here is how I did it: 1) Soak 1 lb dry navy beans overnight 2) Drain navy beans and rinse 3) Place in dutch oven with enough water to cover by 1 inch and boil for 10 minutes 4) Drain and rinse beans again (this is to greatly decrease the musical effect of the beans) 5) Repeat step 3, but boil for 1 hour. 6) Follow the rest of the recipe as indicated, except you should probably not simmer homecooked beans too long, as they break up more readily than the canned (I cooked mine for an additional 25 minutes in the soup, and they were mostly whole, but enough of them broke apart that the soup became a bit thicker than the author's picture - which is how I like it). Good luck!

Made Me Love Pumpkin Cake

I really really really wanted to love this recipe, but texture-wise, I will stick to the pumpkin roll recipes on this site (with eggs).

Broccoli and Sausage Cavatelli

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
I love this pasta. I bake/grill the sausage ahead of time, then dice it, don't use any oil at all, and add lots more cheese than called for, although I keep to the stated amount of parmesan (I usually add an additional 1 cup something like pepperjack or provolone or cheddar) to make extra cheesy. Then I toss the blanched broccoli, diced sausage, garlic, cheese, and red pepper flakes with the hot pasta (just boiled) and mix thoroughly to melt the cheese (sometimes add a bit of the pasta cooking water to make the cheesy coating lighter). VERY GOOD

I tripled the cream cheese topping a la peanut butter cheesecake, and added 3 eggs. It was delicious!
