Easy Vegetable Pot Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2013
I have a turkey pot pie recipe that I love, but it takes a little more effort than this recipe. So decided to try this and, I have to say, it's almost as good! I used Pillsbury pie crusts and had no problem with the bottom crust - can't figure out how you could prebake the bottom and still crimp the edges together anyway. I used a bag of frozen stew vegetables (carrots, potatoes, celery and pearl onions) and cut them up smaller after they thawed. I also sauteed some zucchini, minced garlic and mushrooms for added flavor, then added the frozen veggies, some cream of mushroom soup, the milk, thyme and black pepper and heated it all through. As an afterthought I added some chopped fresh spinach and let it wilt. I used a deep dish pie pan, so having more veggies was a good thing. I think my husband went back for a third helping on this one, so I would say it was a success in my house!

Lemon Cupcake with Blackberry Buttercream

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
Made these for a bridal shower and they were a big success. My cupcakes (I got 16 out of this recipe) really didn't rise much - in fact after they cooled they were pretty darn flat. Having said that, once I put the frosting on it didn't really matter and they did taste good. My lemons were on the small side, so I used two. It was warm when I made the frosting and I ended up adding more sugar as it seemed too runny to pipe on the cupcakes. Really nice blackberry flavor from the jam. I will try raspberry next time!

Maria's Mexican Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
I used brown rice and thought I browned it correctly, but after cooking out all the liquid the rice was still crunchy. Next time I'll use a different rice and barely brown it. The flavor was there, but the texture was awful.

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
This tasted pretty good, but it was a bit of a mess to serve. I did add some enchilada sauce between the layers and on top, so part of the mess was my doing. I also had extra beans - I can only imagine how messy it would have been if I'd used it all! I did use the springform pan and that helped contain it. I think I'd rather just roll them into enchiladas next time.

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
This is the best and easiest focaccia bread ever! With my KitchenAid mixer, it's fast and foolproof - no kneading involved. It also freezes well, so we'll be enjoying this bread with future meals.

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
Followed the advice of others and cut sugar in half. Used Kozlowski Farms Red Raspberry vinegar which was a lovely deep red color. Mixed greens, thinly sliced red onion, raspberries and feta cheese completed the salad. Won't ever buy raspberry vinaigrette from the store again!

Ratatouille Fettuccine Alfredo

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
Lots of chopping, but worth it. Hard to find yellow squash in the winter, so I substituted diced butternut squash which increased the cooking time slightly. We like some spice, so I added some crushed red pepper as well. I used Classico's Asiago Romano Alfredo sauce and thought it was great. Completed the dinner with a salad (Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing) and bread (Michael's Foccacia Bread) and one very happy husband!

Naan

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2013
This is seriously the best bread you will ever eat! I use my Kitchen Aid mixer so I don't have to knead the dough and add the garlic before the first rising so I don't have to knead it later. Lazy, I know but it works! Fabulous on the grill and it also freezes well. I thaw out what I need and reheat on my panini grill in the kitchen. Only add as much flour as you need so it pulls away from the mixing bowl - I didn't use all that was called for in the recipe. I also added half the sugar because otherwise it's too sweet. Absolutely foolproof recipe!

Campfire Skillet Breakfast

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2013
This is a frittata. If you approach it that way, you can add all sorts of leftovers in your fridge and it will always turn out well. I went Mexican and added chopped jalapenos and finished it off with cilantro and salsa. Next time I might try chopped spinach and sliced mushrooms. Play around with this recipe and make it your own.

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2013
Really seriously good! Added some cubed butternut squash 15 minutes into the simmer along with some cinnamon and a heaping tablespoon of chili powder. I also minced a large jalepeno pepper and sauteed it with the onions and bell pepper. Sour cream and cilantro finish it off nicely. Can't wait for the leftovers!

All-in-One Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
I tweaked this recipe a bit, but it made a lot more than four servings! I used half the mushrooms and chopped up a green bell pepper that I added along with the zucchini, etc. Next time I would add some diced onions to the chicken as well. I cooked the chicken in a large oven safe skillet, so no need to transfer to a baking dish once the veggies are added.

Curried Winter Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
Made this last night and looking forward to trying the leftovers. Substituted frozen mixed veggies for the corn and added a good amount of freshly ground black pepper. Overall very tasty, but the spaghetti squash gave it a strange texture. I plan to play around with the ingredients until I'm happy, but my husband gave this recipe a thumbs up!

Herb Batter Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
Once upon a time I had a recipe for "casserole bread" that was a favorite. No idea where that recipe is now, but this one is as good as or better! Followed the recipe exactly except for substituting olive oil for the shortening. Could not WAIT to cut the bread! My old recipe had the option of adding shredded cheese, so next time I plan to try it. Make sure you start early to allow for rising time.

Peach Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
Quick, easy and SO good! Probably used more like 3 cups of peaches and cut the slices into smaller pieces. This doesn't need any topping at all except for some whipped cream. I will make this one again for sure!

Spicy Korean Slow Cooked Chicken (Dhak Dori Tang)

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
This was pretty good. I cut back slightly on the red pepper and the paste, but would probably follow the recommended amounts next time. I did add a little more water and some red and yellow bell pepper. I also used low sodium soy sauce and didn't add any additional salt. Good reviews from my dinner companions!

Fig and Goat Cheese Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
Used a medium to large sweet onion instead of the red onion. I had fresh figs, so I diced them and added them to the onions for a few minutes at the end. I also added some chopped fresh rosemary along with the thyme and fennel. Didn't measure the goat cheese, just added what seemed to be enough and finished it off with a sprinkling of shredded Italian cheese mix. A very good way to use up fresh figs!

Janine's Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2012
Yes, this is the BEST banana bread recipe. So easy and so good! I substituted some brown sugar for the white (didn't measure, but probably about a third) and added about a half cup of mini chocolate chips. Nuts would be wonderful in this too, but can't add due to allergies. Sprinkled the top with some cinnamon sugar. Took 70 minutes to bake in my oven, but it was worth the extra wait!

Marrakesh Vegetable Curry

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
Excellent recipe! Used carrot juice instead of orange juice with good results. Left out almonds because of husband's allergy, but next time I'll add some on top of my serving. Used brown jasmine rice underneath. I will keep this and make it again.

Indian Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2012
No need to bake the cauliflower - just trim and put in large pot with a steamer basket. Poke with a fork to see when it's done. I broke up the florets and added them to the tomato sauce in the pan and tossed. I also made my own tomato puree by putting one can of diced tomatoes and their juice in the blender along with a little leftover tomato paste. Very easy. I will keep this recipe for sure.

Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2012
Pretty yummy, but mine looked nothing like the photo. The topping (minus nuts because my husband is allergic) melted and some even ended up on the bottom - nothing crunchy about it. Maybe adding some flour to make it more like a streusel? Anyway, it tasted good and I made extra to freeze. Added some milk and used butter as others recommended... forgot to add the cinnamon to the batter but I didn't miss it.
