Eggplant Rollatini

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
OMG - so very good. I'm sure it is excellent made the way the recipe calls but I changed to accomodate my veggie husband. Instead of frying I baked and sprinkled with EVOO. Instead of pancetta I rolled two veggie meatballs in the middle. They stayed together perfectly and the texture was perfect. I also used 2% ricotta. We bothed loved it. HOMERUN RECIPE and better than Eggplant Parm! Thank you!

Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2013
Used the basic recipe minus the butter for items I had on had which included turkey sausage, onion, pepper jack cheese, chopped chiles and green chile salsa. I only seasoned with black pepper and did not need any salt. I also topped with sliced fresh tomatoes and it looks oh so pretty. Great recipe. One more thing. I like the plain flour MUCH BETTER than Biscuit!

Grammy Burnham's Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Oh so good. I changed it up slightly: 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup white butter instead of shortening (melted then room temp) 1 cup rasins, 1/2 cup chopped dates cooked 10 minutes exactly PERFECTION! And like another said, seal in air tight bag and they are even better the next day.

Beaker's Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2012
OUTSTANDING! Here is what I did differently: I added 4 quarts veggie broth, chili paste instead of curry, fresh garlic instead of powder, small kidney beans instead of garbanzo, added mushrooms, a can of green beans and 1/3 package frozen chopped spinach. Finally I added fresh chopped Italian parsley instead of dried. Truly one of the best soups I have ever made, thank you for the recipe!

Thai Peanut Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
I just made this pretty much to the T except I guesstimated rather than measure things out exactly... the only thing I changed was like others I did not add the corn starch... I did a rolling bubbling until it was the consistency I like which was only a few minutes. Very good flavor, going to be great on the vietnamese spring rolls I am making. Thanks for this recipe, just what I needed.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
Outstanding recipe even after forgetting to add the vanilla, but otherwise followed exactly! Try dipping in dark chocolate on the bottom and then into sliced toasted almonds! Looks and tastes great! So very good fresh after baking and still tasted good the next day but not as good as out of the oven. Thanks for the recipe!

Corn, Sweet Onion, and Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
This recipe was perfect for a summer bbq and everyone loved it. Very easy and tasty. I didn't have rice vinegar so i used apple cider vinegar and added some sugar to taste. I used purple onions and it was excellent.

Tiramisu II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Perfect recipe first time I made it! Helpful hints in hindsight: layer lady fingers tightly for a good cakelike layer - drizzle or brush coffee/liquor mix, I dunked and it was too strong IMO - I used espresso and coffee liquor and the flavor was great - when stirring the yoke mix over heat it will rise, make sure pot is large enough to accomodate and mine never boiled for a minute but I did cook and stir for a long while until the mix raised to more than double and was creamy throughout - if whipping cream with whisk mixer it doesn't take long at all, be careful to not over whip! I WILL MAKE THIS GREAT RECIPE AGAIN!

Peanut Butter Crispies II

Reviewed: May 29, 2009
OMG this is the recipe I have been looking for. 30 years ago I was in love with the pb rice crispy treats they served for breakfast in my school cafeteria. This is it. Chewy, peanut buttery yumminess. THANK YOU!

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
It doesn't get much better than these. My kids loved them, my boyfriend who is not a huge mushroom fan loved them and so did I! I used light cream cheese. I didn't have quite enough parmesean so I added some shredded mozerella to make up for it. I also used all my cayenne on the red beans so I used chinese "rooster sauce" instead. I was surprised that it said to chop the mushroom stems but did it. I used my hand held food chopper and it worked great to mince them up finely and boy did they look and smell great when cooked with the oil and garlic! That alone would be great on pizza! Excellent recipe, will make these many times again.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
These were incredibly good. My boyfriend is a vegetarian and we have had store bought black bean burgers, but these were by far better. I used purple onion and cheese seasoned bread crumbs because that is what I had. I just added the crumbs until it was a good molding consistency. I also added brown rice which gave them a great chewy texture. These were fine placing directly on the grill and the cooked texture was was fabulous. My boyfriend was so very impressed and can't wait to make them again. I also loved that I made them large enough to go on the big wheat buns.

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
Yum, yum these were all that! I pretty much followed the recipe except I didn't measure water or spice. I added chicken bouilon as many other suggested and I didn't have chicken broth. Great recipe you can do a lot with!.

Trudy's Super Deluxe Crab Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
This is the closest recipe I found on this site to match one I got from my friends mom. The DIFFERENCE IS I used canned crab and chopped shrimp! Also chopped green onion. The gelitin gives it a great texture and the only problem is it is so full of fat but you can't help eating lots of it! YUM!

Easy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2008
Just as easy and versatile as other reviews say. Can't wait to experiment more. I warmed the sweetened condensed milk as recommended and it was easy to work with. I sprayed my pan with Pam and they came out with ease. Also used wax paper to press mix firmly into pan... great recipe!

Spicy Shrimp Creole

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
This was scrumptious! It wasn't too spicey for these taste buds and was even better the next day! Next time I make I am going to try using clam juice in exchange for some of the tomato sauce... it was a bit too tomatoey for my liking... for me I think it would be better with less tomato sauce. Thanks for the recipe, will be making this again soon.

Easy Blender Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2008
Try this recipe, you won't believe how easy or how good! I make it for my co-workers and they are always impressed. The differences in mine are the following: I use green onion instead of yellow, I add two cloves of garlic, I use lime instead of lemon juice, I add half a red or green bell pepper, I use a large can of whole peeled tomatoes including the juice. I put all dry ingredients in the blender first and the tomatoes on top. Do not over blend unless you like it like juice instead of chunky. Enjoy!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
I make a similar version of this using lean ground turkey. I use water chestnuts for crunch, green onion, mushrooms (sometimes) and for the sauce I use Iron Chef Sesame Garlic sauce I find in the Asian section at Winco. I use no extra oil and it is not missed. After cooking the ground meat I drain excess oil. DELICIOUS!

Chicken Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2008
This was great, followed the recipe but used strips of boneless/skinless chicken breast. It was golden but not as crispy as I like so next time I will fry longer. Yummy flavor, excellent texture and very juicy and tender. My kids loved it, too.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
Great hearty, healthy soup! I only changed a couple of things: I added corn and used one can stewed italian tomatoes for half the tomato sauce. I used vegetable bouillon instead of chicken. I used less olive oil. Very yummy. Next time I will spice it up a bit more for my personal tastes and add other spices such as red pepper, sage, etc.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
I've been making these for years and love them. Some tips I've learned: not all rice paper wraps are created equal, try different brands; shrimp can be cut/split down the center to make go further; mint is so delicious, I use whole leaves; dry ingredients inside help make the rolling easier; must dip them in something (all sauces mentioned here sound great!) otherwise they taste bland; can't beat how healthy they are!! YUM!
