Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
This is really good. I didn't have basil and don't like feta, so they didn't make it to the recipe, but everyone in the family went looking for seconds. Thank you for posting this!

Low Carb Pancake Crepes

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
Simple to make and delicious. I used strawberry cream cheese and didn't add the cinnamon or sweetener. The first one I made was a standard crepe size, then I did tablespoons, then 1/8th cup measures. The crepe size was a beautiful thing to behold, but I really didn't want to struggle with getting another one out of the pan, hence the experiments. The 1/8th cup measured crepes were easy to manage out of the pan and the size looked nice on a plate. You could fold these in half over fruit or jam and they would be a welcoming sight. Next time I'll add a photo; but this time they're all gone! :-) Thanks for sharing!

Lola's Horchata

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
This was much better than OK, but not great. I don't have white rice in the house, just brown, so that's what I used. I decreased the sugar, but it was still a bit too sweet. My husband liked it but said it was thin, so I'll adjust here and there - little less sugar, more milk or try a milk/cream mixture. I am also going to try it with homemade almond milk (1/4 c. almonds to 1 c. water in the blender) and use a bit of agave nectar instead of the white sugar. Definitely a keeper with a few tweaks. Thanks for sharing!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I had a 6 lbs. chicken and goofed on the instant read thermometer so the breast meat was a bit dry, but not bad. I had just enough butter and margarine combined for the job - putting some of the butter under the breast skin. I added some garlic powder to the mix but otherwise followed the recipe. This smells WONDERFUL in the kitchen - just a hint of how it tastes - so, so good. I used the drippings to fry (already microwaved) potatoes in 'til crispy - which made the perfect accompaniment along with a simple green salad. This is perfect for that whole chicken you don't want to bother cutting up and the day you just want dinner on the table without a lot of work. Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe. It will be a staple in our house.

Amazing Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
This was a very good dish. Here's how I did it: 5 boneless, skinless chicken thighs, rinsed and dried with paper towels. In a medium size bowl put 2 big spoons of mayo seasoned with garlic powder, sea salt and onion powder - with tongs add the chicken and swoosh around to get it all covered - in a rectangular ziploc food container went about 3/4 c. panko crumbs I seasoned with garlic powder, onion powder, thyme, sea salt and freshly ground pepper - put in the chicken and seal the top on and shake and turn upside down to cover everything with the crumb mixture. I poured about 4 T. olive oil into a glass baking dish and put the chicken in for 20 minutes then turned it once and cooked for the additional 30 minutes. I hate getting my hands goopy and some of the posts mentioned it was messy - so this is how I handled it. I wondered if the boneless thighs would cook like breasts would for the 30 mins. at 425 - they came out great - tender, juicy, nice crisp coating. Best of all - it was quick to prepare. I got a late start on dinner but had everything on the table by 6 thanks to this recipe.

Hearty Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
This is VERY good. My husband looked rather underwhelmed when I handed him his bowl, but he happily announced that it was not only good but better than it looked. (funny man!) The changes I made: olive oil, 2 carrots, no parsnip, 3 potatoes, not peeled, no worcestershire sauce, no wine, forgot the cilantro, and used fire-roasted tomatoes with garlic, added some pan-fried chicken and apple sausage and used chicken stock rather than vegie stock. Very good flavor - no need for salt.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
This was a good dish. I made a few changes: olive oil rather than vegie oil, more garlic, followed the suggestion to replace tomatillos with salsa verde, and I NEVER measure cumin b/c I love it so I just dump loads in whatever dish calls for it, and I used about 2 cups of frozen kernel corn. It was easy to make, dresses up nicely with condiments and was truly yummy. Thanks for such a nice and easy dinner in a bowl!

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This was truly yummy. I sprinkled cinnamon, ginger, sea salt and nutmeg in a bowl, swirled in some olive oil and tossed my squash in - gave them a stir and slipped them onto a preheated jellyroll pan. They stayed in about 35 mins. but never got crunchy. What do the success stories have that I don't? Hmmm... Well, I don't have anymore fries - I ate them all up because they were delicious.
