Easy Masoor Daal

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
my family liked this! no, you don't understand. they liked this. I needed to tame the heat a bit, but.... they liked this. The cayenne needs to be at 1/8 t for my small children, and I used the normal American-grocery store lentils, not red, but THEY LIKED IT. I have added it to our normal "Indian" night of chicken korma, aloo masala and lassi.

Parmesan-Black Pepper Arborio Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
family really liked this. I ran out of arborio rice, so had to use 1/4 c of my basmati/brown mix (2 parts basmati, 1 part brown) to round out the recipe. but it was really good. even very picky hubby ate it.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
First, a disclaimer, I am a habitual snitcher.... I taste everything in the various stages of preparedness (except brownie batter - I go straight to the batter with a BIG spoon, no "snitching" there). So I put the sprouts - mine were exceptionally large, so I quartered them - in the bag with the oil and seasonings. Then I tasted. oh, they were sooo good! I probably ate a good third of them like that. They were sweet and salty and I love the flavor of good EVOO. Then I cooked them. My 8-yo son said they tasted better cooked (I had made all the kids try them raw, they were so good), but he didn't eat more than the one; my 6-yo daughter and I liked them better raw; my 3-yo girl threw them up both ways, and dh wouldn't touch them at all. So my final rating is, good recipe, just don't cook them!---------edit: I have changed my mind. This is the BEST way to eat brussel sprouts. There is just no comparison. Except, I stand by my admonition to just eat them raw. I have been making a quart ziploc of these every week, and snack on them through the day - they get better the longer they sit in the marinade; I eat them for dinner when the rest of family is having carrot or cucumber sticks; 2 of my children snitch them out of the fridge when I am not looking. And if I really want to cook them, so the rest of the family will eat them, they are already marinated. All around, a happy happy recipe :)

Sarah's Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
great side dish for a strong-flavored main entry. I have never used orzo before, and I think now it is about to be used a lot more around here :)

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
This is our alternate pancake recipe. I follow exactly, and add dehydrated and blended-to-tiny-chunks-if-not-flour berries - raspberries, blueberries or strawberries to give a berry flavor without extra liquid.

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
I took this on a salad to a baby shower, and got rave reviews. I doubled the recipe and used a deli mustard as the mustard in the recipe. I later added 1 T yellow mustard to give it more mustard flavor, but every one loved it!

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2012
this was great! much better than our previous pumpkin soup. I did add 1/2 t garam masala as per other reviews, and it was prefect. Also, skipped the whipping cream and added a dollop of sour cream to each bowl. warm and filling.

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2013
Pretty tasty. We only had an hour to marinade it, but it turned out mighty mighty tasty. Will definitely make it again. We only had yellow mustard and regular soy sauce. My son wants me to mention that we used HICKORY liquid smoke (We also have apple and mesquite in the house for jerky)------ edit: I have been making this often. One of my favorite ways is to make a LARGE batch of the marinade then place 1.5# of fresh raw chicken breasts (sliced about 3/4" thick and in palm-sized pieces) in a ziploc bag with 1 1/3 cup of marinade and freeze. I do 6-8 bags at a time for easy dinners.---- the other thing I did last night was take the marinade that was left when I removed the chicken and boiled it on the stove for about 10 minutes. The oil separated, and I poured it off, but then there was a yummy yummy sauce that added zest to our chicken salad last night and a wrap I had today with the leftover chicken.

Vegetable Beef Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
Oh, this had such a great flavor! I did not have any bacon, but I did use bacon grease to cook the veggies into a mirpoix. I was very surprised - my kids loved it, and cleaned their bowls. haven't heard from hubby yet - I think he is not a fan: he likes his soups smooth.

Fisherman's Quick Fish

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
everyone liked this, even the picky 3-yo, once she could be bribed into trying it (french fries are always useful on new food night!!!!) I did use caesar dressing instead of Italian, and it had to cook more like 15-20 min, but even with that high heat, it was moist and tender and the topping was crunchy, not burnt. We'll make it again.

Jewish Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
ok, full disclosure here, we made a number of changes First, we halved the batch for my small family, and cooked it in the toaster oven in a small round cake pan. Also, we are cutting down on our sugar, and since coffee cake is overly sweet to balance coffee, I often find i can cut the sugar in half. I think that next time I will only cut the white sugar in half, but only cut the powdered sugar by 1/4. I did half whole wheat and half white flour. And since we do not eat nuts around here, I substituted a 1/2 cup of crushed dried raspberries. Overall, it was a great breakfast.

Maple Kale Crisps

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
I mix my oil and maple syrup (REAL maple syrup please!) in a ziploc and let it sit for a few minutes. I spread it on my dehydrator trays before sprinkling with salt. Lots of salt. I then turn on my dehydrator to 110 degrees for 8 hours. I love this. It is like caramel popcorn with kale instead of corn. Definitely one of my favorites - even the kids love it.

Feta Cheese and Bacon Stuffed Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
one of our favorites. I buy fresh chicken breast in bulk when it is on sale and make 30 or so of these (I use the cut-a-hole-in-the-fat-end-and-stuff-it method; I think I will try crumbling the bacon next time - I like that idea), then freeze in 6-breast freezer bags. When I remove them from the freezer, I place the chicken on top of cooked basmati rice and then drizzle the oil mixture over the chicken and rice. The rice makes a wonderful addition and the flavors from the marinade and the chicken makes the rice to-die-for! I usually make a greek salad to go with it and fresh pita.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: May 29, 2014
I liked this a lot. Yes, it was sweet. But as the poster mentioned, maple syrup is soooo yummy. Which brings me to my first point: use REAL maple syrup. Not the flavored high fructose corn syrup (lite or otherwise!) - when a recipe calls for maple syrup, it means the concentrated tree sap; don't substitute, it never turns out right. I added 1/2 t horseradish as someone mentioned; it took away some of the sweet without adding a strong flavor. I also took that extra marinade and threw it on my stove to boil for a few minutes. Made the yummiest glaze. The kids loved this. In fact, I had a hard time stopping them from eating the marinade (before I added the salmon)!

Gobi Aloo (Indian Style Cauliflower with Potatoes)

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2007
There is a debate here about whether or not this needs a gravy. the first time I had allo gobi, some friends from the Punjab region of Pakistan made it - and it had a thick rich gravy, so I have adjusted this accordingly. I add 2/3 c cream and some water to coat the veggies - it helps distribute the spices to all surface area. then I cook it down until it is a thick, but not plentiful, gravy. I have also been known to add 2 handfuls of green peas just before serving (my kids like it better this way).

Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2008
I dunno - maybe I am not a pumpkin seed fan - too much work to get to the meat, and unlike some, I do not like to eat the shell. I am giving 4 stars though because the flavor of this is really very good... if you can get past the shell into the meat. (I had a lot of seeds, so I made some of this, some of the "Spiced Pumpkin Seeds" and some of the "Cinnasweet pumpkin Seeds." Ds7 liked this one quite well - and he is one of those that will eat the whole seed.)
