Bodacious Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2014
So delicious and easy to make! I followed the recipe exactly using low fat mayo, reduced fat cheddar cheese and precooked bacon pieces. Brought it to a friend's cook out last night and it was a big hit! It calls for quite a bit of black pepper...I only used 1.5 teaspoons instead of the 2 t listed but I may cut it back to 1 t next time I make it. Tastes great on day 2 as well. This will be a summer staple!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
This is a great basic banana bread recipe! I prefer a sweeter spiced banana bread so I added 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon cardamom and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and increased the brown sugar to 1 cup. The 5 super ripe medium bananas in my freezer were perfect for this recipe. Usually not a huge banana bread fan but I see myself making this often!

Bavarian Pot Roast

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
I've been making this for years. While it's good as is, I use apple cider instead of juice and increase it to 2 1/2 cups. I also add 2t of ginger. Definitely cook the carrots with the beef...they end up tasting like apples. And if I have apples on hand when I'm making this, I'll slice up a couple and throw them in as well. Whether cooked in a crock pot, in the oven or on the stove top, this comes out delicious every time. Yes it has a unique taste but that is what makes it so good!

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
Very yummy though I did make a few tweaks....I used a leftover ham shoulder bone in place of the sausage, omitted the bouillon and potatoes since I didn't have them on hand and used a full teaspoon of oregano. Also reduced the water to 6 cups for a heartier soup. Fantastic and simple!

Molasses Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
So good! A friend had made these for a party and they were delicious. I decided to make some for Christmas with a couple of tweaks even though they are 5 star as is- I used 1 c brown sugar and 1 c white sugar, doubled the amount of ginger and halved the amount of cloves. Then I drizzled them with semisweet chocolate once they cooled. For those on the South Shore of Boston, these reminded me of Ginger Betty's signature cookie :)

Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2013
This is a go to recipe for me...kids and grown ups alike devour them! I use 4 lbs of frozen meatballs(for convenience-the recipe is great as is!), double the sauce and cook on low in the crock pot for several hours. I get many requests for these throughout the year but I think my family and friends would disown me if I didn't make them every Christmas.

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2013
Super easy and super tasty! I made some changes based on other reviews- I used 1/2 c water, 1/2 c orange juice, 1/2 c brown sugar, 1/2 c white sugar and tossed in a cinnamon stick. I think next time I'll throw some crystalized ginger in too.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
Great recipe! Was looking for a change from tomato based chili and this fit the bill. Followed the recipe except I reduced the amount of broth to 3 cups but will reduce it further next time for a thicker chili. I also did not stir in the cheese but served it on the side along with sour cream. The cinnamon added subtle warmth...may increase it next time and add a little more cayenne for more kick. Definitely will me making this again...maybe in the crockpot next time.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
Great recipe...bread comes out moist with a tender crumb, not heavy and dense like most banana breads. I followed the suggestions of some other reviewers and mashed the bananas, adding them to the butter/sugar/egg mixture before adding the flour. I didn't have any sour cream so I used fat free Greek yogurt instead. At the last minute I decided to add a teaspoon of cinnamon to the batter...glad I did! I'm generally not a big banana bread fan but I'll be keeping this recipe on hand for those times when I have over ripe bananas to use.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2013
This has been my go-to pumpkin bread recipe for years! It's a five star recipe as written but I've tweaked it a bit over the years. I prefer to use equal parts of white and brown sugar for a richer flavor and since I like a spicier pumpkin bread, I use 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, 1 teaspoon of nutmeg and 1 teaspoon of ginger however I only use 1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves since I'm not a big clove fan. It makes 3 good size loaves, bakes up moist and perfect every time and freezes really well. I just made my first batch of the season...yummy!

Blueberry Boy Bait

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
So good! Simple but perfect! I doubled the amount of blueberries. Planning to go blueberry picking again soon so I can make this again while blueberries are in season but I will definitely be making this year round.

Beer Braised Irish Stew and Colcannon

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
So yummy! This recipe is very similar to how I usually make my beef stew. I loved the idea of serving the stew over colcannon instead of adding potatoes to the stew. It was one of those "why didn't I think of that?" moments! Made a couple of minor modifications as some reviewers mentioned: used about 3/4 cup of milk for the colcannon and sauteed the shredded cabbage in the bacon fat. And because I like them, I used about a pound of baby carrots in the stew. Otherwise I followed the recipe as is. All I had on hand was Sam Adams Winter Lager and it was tasty but next time I think I'll use Guiness (and a little brown sugar to cut the bitterness)like I usually do for my beef stew. And there will definitley be many next times!

West African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2013
This was a nice hearty soup. I followed the recipe pretty closely...only changes I made were to half the recipe, used chicken broth instead of veggie broth and brown rice that I cooked separately. Once the soup was done, I added some of the cooked rice and blended with my immersion blender until it was nice and smooth. Served with a scoop of cooked rice and a sprinkling of cinnamon....very yummy!

Candied Kielbasa

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
This was a huge hit at my Christmas party this past weekend! Everyone commented on how delicious it was and several people asked for the recipe. I did cut back on the brown sugar as some reviewers suggested (I used 1 1/2 cups for a double batch) and baked in the oven for about 90 minutes at 350 so it would carmelize. I will definitely be making this again...often!

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
This soup is hearty and delicious! Perfect for a cool rainy New England fall day. I did substitute a sweet onion for the leeks and used thyme since I'm not a big fan of dill. Will definitely be making this again throughout the fall and winter.

Spinach and Strawberry Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2012
Simple and delicious! Brought it to a dinner party last night and it was a huge hit....the host joked that the salad was the shining star of the meal! Based on other reviews I cut the sugar and oil (I used olive oil) to 1/4 cup each and omitted the poppyseeds (personal preference). I served the dressing on the side along with candied pecans and blue cheese. Will definitely be making this again...and often!
