Green Tomato Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
Great start on a cake! I pureed my tomatoes in the blender because I don't have a food processor. My only complaing is that I halved the salt on the tomatoes, and it was still quite salty. I washed the pieces well, and not all the salt came off. I would use 1/4 of the salt at most next time (and also leave it out of the batter). Other than that, it was great! Frosted it with a cream cheese frosting, and it tasted like a moist spice cake. Some of my husband's friends were over unexpectedly last night, and they devoured it!

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
This is my favorite recipe for chicken salad. I've made it several times now, and it's always a little bit forgiving based on what I have in the pantry/fridge. I have used fat-free mayonnaise with success. Try it!

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2009
Great recipe. Made a few changes but stayed relatively true to the recipe - doubled the garlic to 2 cloves and swapped cottage cheese for ricotta because that's what I had, and used MUCH LESS butter (maybe 1 Tbsp at most). Served it for my sister-in-law while she was visiting, and we all really enjoyed it. Thanks for the recipe!

Cinnamon-Raisin Granola

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
I first made this recipe because it called for things that I actually keep in the pantry, and have made it a couple times since. As written, it definately is more of a "fine" granola. After making it as written the first time, I increase the sugar and honey to 1/3 c. each and like it much better this way. It adds enough to give you some little clumps and makes it just a bit sweeter. Definately watch it closely while cooking. It browns fast!

Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
I've made this popcorn twice now, and it is very addicting! I've really only made one adjustment - the first time I made it I began baking as directed and the popcorn started getting really dry, especially after the 45 minute stir. The second time I made it I followed the review to up the temp to 300 degrees and bake for 20 minutes (stirring half-way) and that worked great! Enjoy!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
My husband actually made these for Christmas and they are wonderful if you like a nice, soft chewy cookie! The flavor is mild and they stayed soft for as long as they lasted (probably a week and a half with the assortment of cookies that we had). They were exactly what we were looking for in a ginger cookie. Thanks!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
This is by far the best minestrone soup that I have eaten! I love that it full of vegetables and that also makes it very filling. Followed the recipe exactly, except I didn't add the red wine only because we didn't have any. I would highly recommend this recipe!

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
Very good! I also halved the apple portion as I wanted to make smaller amount. I baked it in an 8x8 pan, but still used almost the full amount of topping - I probably had about 1/2 c. extra that was just too much. The only other change I made was to use whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. Thanks for the great recipe!

Chococonut Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
These cookies are a great variation on the traditional chocolate chip cookie. I switched the chocolate chips to milk chocolate b/c of personal preference and added about 1-1/4 c. quick cooking oats to bulk up the dough. Baked them at 350 for about 8 minutes and they came out crispy on the outside and chewy in the middle. The cookies aren't even completely finished and my husband has already eaten several!
