Garlic Delicata

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
Delicata is definitely my new favorite squash after cooking this (and this is from a non-squash lover). For our small family, I made only one squash, used 2 T of the olive oil, 3 cloves of garlic (we love garlic), a good amount of the parsley, and added sea salt and black pepper to taste. I roasted mine in a cast iron pan, stirred twice during cooking, and pulled it out when it was golden brown on the sides, which was at about 25 minutes. Fabulous.

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
This has become one of my new favorite soups. I usually use dried tortellini, and add extra water or broth to compensate. I also like an extra garlic clove or two.

Winter Leek and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
This was very, very good. I used four cloves of minced garlic instead of garlic powder and whole milk instead of half and half. Because this made it a little thinner, I added some water with one tablespoon of corn starch just to make it a little less runny. The flavor turned out deliciously mild. I loved the addition of cheese--just enough to add to the flavor without making it a cheese soup.

Roasted Swiss Chard with Feta

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
This is now one of my go-to chard recipes. Love it! The only change I've made is decreasing the feta to about 2 oz. That seems to be plenty every time.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
This was really good. I did saute the onions as recommended by others, and added some dried basil and oregano. Then I simplified baking by throwing all the ingredients into the dish and mixing them up before simply putting the cheese on top. I brought this to a potluck as a side dish and nothing was left by the end. Thanks!

Olive Oil Roasted Eggplant with Lemon

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2012
I was looking for more eggplant recipes since we were getting it frequently with our farm share. I made this recipe exactly according to the directions. The taste was bland and the texture unappealing.

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
This recipe has made me love asparagus. I include all the "optional" things in the recipe, plus add an extra clove of minced garlic. I will note that the 1 tsp. of salt called for is WAY too much, and I've found that 1/2 tsp is plenty.

Playgroup Granola Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
I've never particularly cared for granola bars before, but I made these for my husband so he could have bars that were healthier than the store bought version, and now I'm sitting here eating a bunch of them myself. Yum! My only changes were to switch whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour and cranberries (which were on sale) for the raisins. Then I cut the brown sugar down to 1/3 of a cup, which seemed just right. Don't think I'll be going back to buying the store bought version anytime soon. Now I'm excited to make these with all sorts of variations!

Daddy's Popcorn

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
I used butter in place of the margarine and canola for the oil. The first time I tried cooking it, I ended up with complete disaster--burnt popcorn and a house full of smoke, so the second time I took a more patient approach and turned the heat down to medium high. The result was fantastic, and I'm not even a popcorn lover! (my husband and two-year-old are) We tend to like things on the salty side, so we added a little extra regular salt. I can see that there's definitely a little skill involved in making popcorn, so I'm glad I tried twice. Thanks!

Whole-Grain Pie Crust with LIBBY'S® Famous Pumpkin Pie Filling

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
I used this recipe for the crust alone, not the filling, since I was looking for a whole grain crust for a pot pie. I tried to follow the recipe exactly, but I had to put in twice as much water as it called for, and it was still a little dry. The dough still rolled out surprisingly well after letting it rest a while in the fridge. The flavor was good; I think the oat/wheat combo was a nice mix, but next time I make it I would like to try using whole wheat pastry flour and pre-milled oat flour in the same amounts and sift it a couple times to create a lighter texture, which I think would be especially helpful for a dessert pie, without sacrificing on the nutrition.

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
This was absolutely delicious. The only ingredient change I made was the sweetener: I substituted 3/4 cup of honey for the sugar (I was starting with already-sweet gala apples I'd found on sale, so I knew it wouldn't need much). If I'd used white sugar, one cup would have been plenty. I prepped and started the apple butter before I went to bed at night, which gave it a long cooking time (the house smelled heavenly when we woke up!). The only issue I noted with the recipe, which someone else also mentioned, was that it took a long time to reduce. I ended up turning my crock pot on high with the lid off and it still took three hours for enough liquid to boil off. The end result is sure worth it though! This is a perfect fall recipe.

Chicken Potato Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
This is quite tasty and has become a quick-fix staple in our house. One note: no matter how small I cut the potatoes or how I vary cooking times/temperatures, the potatoes never seemed to be done, so now I've taken to microwaving them after cutting for about five minutes before baking, with better results.

Scalloped Potatoes and Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Yummy comfort food. Definitely microwave the sliced potatoes before putting them in the oven, if you want them fully cooked.

Orange-Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
This was truly the best ham I've ever had. I cooked the ham per packaged directions, made the glaze according to the recipe and added just one extra step immediately before applying the glaze: I scored the ham and studded it with whole cloves, then poured the glaze over. It was heavenly. My mouth still waters just thinking about it. This is going to become a holiday ham keeper for sure.

Oven-Barbecued Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I made a few modifications according to my own taste and other's reviews. I only cooked two chops, but still made the same amount of sauce. For the sauce, I decreased the vinegar to 1 T, added 1 T of honey, omitted the chili powder (we're not big fans of spicy bbq sauce), and added 1/2 tsp. garlic powder, 1/2 tsp onion powder, and 1/4 tsp ground cloves. The resulting sauce had a fabulous zip and flavor without being too spicy. The cloves really made the sauce. I will be definitely be making this again and would like to make this sauce to grill with as well. As an additional note, I decreased the cooking time to 45 min (which was more than enough) and halfway through baking, I turned the chops and coated them with the second half of the sauce.

Salmon with Lemon and Dill

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
This has become my regular salmon recipe. Very tasty. I prefer to mix the lemon, butter, and seasonings together and then pour them over the salmon to avoid having all the dill caked on top of the salmon. I find this distributes the flavors much better.

Skillet Pork Chops with Potatoes and Onion

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
This is a good, easy, tasty staple. We thought the potatoes were especially delicious (I for one, couldn't get enough!). I did cut down on the onions and used just one onion instead of two, which was still more than enough. Will make again!

Grilled Chicken with Herbs

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
I've made this recipe a couple of time, and just hadn't reviewed it yet. I didn't have all the herbs recommended fresh, so I used half the amount of dry herbs instead. For using so many herbs, the flavor was still surprisingly mild. A good keeper.

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
I don't give five star ratings very often, but my husband and I both agreed that this recipe deserved it. It's definately a new favorite for us (and I think he would have eaten the entire recipe's worth at once, if I'd let him, haha). I realized too late (as in while cooking) that I didn't have any white wine vinegar on hand, so I substituted 1 T balsamic vinegar and 1 T white cooking wine instead, for some fabulous flavor. We both loved the mild sweetness of the sauce. Will definitely be making this again! Thanks!
