Red Chard and Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
I have never been a fan of what I call "healthy vegetables". But, I have to admit that this was good tasting. My husband just loved the taste of the dish. No capers, kept everything else but added no salt. The Kalamata Olives were salty enough and they flavored the dish just right. We found fresh Kalamatas in an open deli case next to the meat dept. in our natural foods store. Be sure to let the onion carmelize, it helps with the taste of the dish. Easy to prepare, good tasting, even to me! Overall, a great recipe. Thanks

Wild Rice Pumpkin Yum Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2008
These were pretty simple to make and if the raw batter is any indication of how they will taste--I'm looking forward to it! It smells like Christmas right now! If you don't have a 10x15 pan, as I don't you can use a 9x13, but, you will need to increase the baking time. It may seem like work, but, this is definitely worth the effort. If you use a 9x13 pan, it will be cake like but still good. Enjoy!!

Nana's Mashed Turnip

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
I've never had Turnips at all. I love mashed potatoes, so, seeing as my produce box had a Turnip, thought I would try it. We were not disappointed. Will definitely make again. I used red potatoes and I also used brown sugar instead of white, it added some extra flavor to it. Add the salt and pepper as you are serving. Enjoy!

Couscous with Dried Cherries

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
I love this, but, I do find it a bit dry. So, this is what I did to solve it. I added a second T. of butter, some more water, xtra s. and p,. heated it up to warm. Very much improved. As far as blandness goes, I only use Salt and Pepper, but, I'm sure that it would be good with some other spices. Try a little bit of garlic or onion powder perhaps. Enjoy!! I heated up some Couscous that was done, heated up with a bit of broth and added a handful of cherries, s & p. You can heat this up.

Meatball Potato Supper

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
We love this recipe. I did follow it exactly, with the exception of browning the meatballs in the frypan. I did them in the oven and they came out great. Otherwise, for spiceness, I added salt and pepper, and way extra paprika. So very good, and easy to make. Best of all, it takes just a few ingredients that you almost always have on hand. Tip: Don't be afraid to add spices, it is bland, but, that just allows you to play around with how spicy you want it to be. Enjoy!! Thanks Sonya.

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
This is just great! Like a previous reviewer who heated the carcass up in the oven first, I did that. It did improve the taste. Also, only used 2 onions, not 3. But, using 3 would be fine. Also, if you do want some more kick to it, add some garlic. We didn't add anything to it. Use lots of ground black pepper, otherwise you could think it was bland. It is so quick, and so easy. P.S. With the leftover Turkey broth, pour into icecube trays, when frozen pop out, and store in a ziploc freezer bag. When you need some Turkey or some other stock, voila!!

Field Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
Wow!! This is good and very quick to fix salad. The only suggestion I have is that I am going to make the Candied Pecans/Walnuts recipe on this site. I've made these last year, but, just for snacking and they were soo good. I'm betting that candying the nuts will add that little extra oomph. Make it, you won't be disappointed. Thanks Candice.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2008
This is really good, except for one thing. I make our bread, and so on Mon. I made the bread, and Tues. made this recipe. I did not change anything, it came out a slight bit dry. I'm thinking it's result of homemade bread. Store bread doesn't soak up quite as much moisture as homemade does. For that reason, I will make this several more times, and I will increase the amt of milk first. From 2 C. to 2 1/2 C. If that doesn't quite do it I will add 1 more egg. I'll keep you all updated on it. It really is worth figuring out the ratios for me. It's delicious. Thanks.

Cider Vinegar Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
This was very tasty!! Surprisingly so. I followed the recipe and just added a handful of dried red pepper flakes, and some canned, minced garlic. The cider vinegar was real strong at first coming from the oven, but, not for long. Try it, you'll probably like it. Next time I make this I will add some honey to it.

Jalapeno Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2008
Five stars in spite of it not tasting much like cornbread, it is so very good! The loaf size is way small. I am going to make it again and double everything, see if I can get a regular size loaf of bread out of it. I took another reviewer's idea and after baking, melted butter on top and then sprinkled with Coarse Salt. Don't let the size of the loaf fool you, it is very light. Worth making.

Washabinaros Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
I have to say, that I am bit particular about my chili. I don't just put anything into it. So, when I saw this recipe I thought it sounded sooo good. I was right. It is very good! I started out by looking for a really good cornbread recipe, I found Jalapeno Cornbread, read the reviews and one of them mentioned this Chili. That sounded so very warming, and tasty that I checked out the chili recipe. Many ingredients are in it that I would never have thought of, I knew when I saw it that it would be worth it to make it. I have already made Jalapeno Cornbread twice now, we love it! Just got done making the chili and I know my hubby is looking forward to this dish. He's not home yet, but, he knows what I was making today. The only cavaet I would add is to WEAR GLOVES WHILE HANDLING THESE HOT PEPPERS! I wore them while making the cornbread, but, didn't think I needed to for the chili. Big mistake, but, is all better now. The stuff that burns in inside the pepper, its the ribs and seeds. Always wear gloves while handling them. If you forget and then you rub your eyes(me), nose or anything like that. Do not drink water, it will make it worse. Drink milk or other dairy product. Put it on if necessary, use Aloe Vera it will help with the burning. You can rub your hands with vegetable oil after you are done cutting the peppers--that will help with not getting it on other things. Do not rub your eyes especially, you will have to let them burn. Mine went away within 30 min. I did

Sweet and Savory Kale

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2008
Well, I have to admit that it was very good. I have never had kale, or any other "southern" type of green. They used to sound kinda gross to me. But, my CSA box sent me a bunch of kale and I wanted to try it one time, to see if I truly did not like it or not. I wanted a simple recipe. This recipe fit the bill perfectly, and it tasted really good too. Way to go Surja! We will be making this again. Only changes will be halving the sugar in half and greatly increasing the dried cranberries. Very easy and quick to make. Make sure the Kale is dried off very well.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2007
I love making pancakes from scratch, but, this recipe is just so darn good, it's incredible. I did follow the tips given by bestcooker. The buttermilk gave it a wonderful "tang" in contrast with the syrup. You have to try these-with the buttermilk. I also reduced the fat like bestcooker said. We will only make these in the future. Thanks both of you for a great pancake recipe.

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
This was different, but, very good. Next time I will increase the spices, esp., the garlic powder and the red pepper flakes. I had never found a way for me to like cauliflower, until tonight.My husband loves it raw, not me. Thanks for a keeper of a recipe.

Winter Vegetable Hash

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
Wow! I have never had kale before, but, even so I knew I wouldn't like it. Also, my first time ever using a shallot. The only reason I made this dish is I got some kale in my csa box. Very pleasantly surprised at how good it is. I had all the veggies except for a red bell, but, my csa box gave me a red onion, so I used that and kept everything else the same. If you've never had kale, I suggest you try this dish--it is very tasty. Oh yes, for the squash. Obviously you can't peel a squash, so what I did cut in half lengthwise with the help of a rubber mallet, then cut in halves. From there, I diced, and then cut the skin off of each dice individually. Don't make the pieces to big. Enjoy-thanks Rebecca!

New York State Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
I am not generally a muffin person, but, I had a lot of carrots and apples that I got from my csa, wasn't sure how to use them up quickly. This recipe is perfect! I had everything, the taste is moist-just right. Great way to use up too many carrots and apples. Thanks Beverly-will make again soon. Oh yes, I did reduce the baking powder in this recipe to 2 1/2 tsp. Perfect.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
I have never had a good recipe for tuna noodle casserole-until today. I doubled the recipe, my only improvements to it are: The salt and pepper, 1 tsp. of salt, and about the same amt. for the pepper. Also, try adding in about 1 tsp. or more of celery seed. It adds a great taste to it, but, keep in mind that it is celery seed, so, not spicy, hot or anything like that. It really does help to make it taste even better. The topping is great-going to make more of that next time. Thanks for a top-notch Tuna Noodle Cass.
