Spicy Bean with Bacon Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
I made this as directed, except that I soaked the beans overnight and pureed part of the soup. I thought the soup was excellent. Very flavorful.

Brazilian Fish Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
This is fantastic! I didn't put in the cilantro but otherwise made as directed. I've made many fish stews and this is the best by far. I'm typically not a big fan of dishes with coconut milk but loved this.

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
This is fantastic! The only thing I did different was cook the quinoa in broth.

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2012
I followed the recipe except I left out the cilantro and didn't serve it olive oil and chili powder. I thought it was excellent.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
I made this for Thanksgiving. I didn't try it myself but everyone seemed to like it and a few loved it. I made a graham cracker crust myself since all the ones at the grocery store were broken.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
I used 1 cup peanut butter, 2 cups brown sugar, and 3 cups powdered sugar (which I sifted) as others have suggested. I set the timer for two minutes after it came to a good boil, as opposed to setting the timer as soon as I saw a few bubbles. The fudge set up perfectly, had a good texture, and tasted pretty good. I'm not a fan of peanut butter fudge that has a strong brown sugar taste as this one does, so I'll be going back to the recipe for Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge on this site, which I prefer.

Garlic Spaghetti I

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
I thought the pasta was too oily and didn't have much flavor. Won't be making it again.

Baked Apple Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
Yum! This is not aesthetically pleasing at all (it looks like brown glop), but it sure tastes good. I omitted the raisins and ground up the walnuts in a food processor. I like making this because it gives me enough for breakfast all week--I just microwave a bowl of it each morning. I think I'll try decreasing the sugar a bit next time to make it a little healthier.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I made the mistake of making the recipe "as is" instead of taking the suggestions of other reviewers. The muffins were very bland--they didn't taste pumkin-y or spicy. Anything I bring to work is usually gobbled up within 5 minutes, but when I took a batch of these to work, there were still some left at the end of the day. Maybe the muffins are good if you add more pumpkin, increase the amount of spice, and use brown sugar instead of white sugar. They're not good if you make them as the recipe tells you to.

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Like other reviewers, I thought this casserole was too dry. Considering the amount of noodles in the recipe, I think the evaporated milk, soup, and tuna can stand to be doubled. As the recipe is written, such a large amount of the noodles end up dry because there's not that much liquid. Also, a 1.5 quart pan wasn't large enough. I'll be trying this again but will add the whole can of milk as someone suggested, and I may double the soup, tuna, and onion, too.

Falafel I

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
I have other falafel recipes I like, but I thought I would try this one as I was wanting to make falafel without breadcrumbs to decrease the carbs. I did not alter the recipe, and mine seemed to stick together fine. I always bake falafel instead of frying it, so maybe they would have fallen apart during the frying process. They did fine in the oven--I think I had them in at 400 degrees for 15 or so minutes. I wasn't big on the taste, though. The peanut butter was too strong. Though I normally put a tahini sauce on falafel, I did not like the tahini-ish taste being IN the falafel. It just seemed weird. Maybe I would have liked them in a pita, but I crumbled the falafel into a salad and just wasn't real impressed with the taste.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2007
I decided to experiment with different sugar cookie recipes this year. I didn't like this one at all. The cookies puffed up a bunch and then flattened out, so they completely lost their shape. They're also not as soft as my sugar cookies usually are. I'll stick with my old recipe...

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I added 1/2 tsp. baking soda as other reviewers suggested. For the garlic butter, I decreased the amount of butter to 2 tbsp. and used 1/8 tsp garlic powder instead of a clove of garlic. I've made lots of biscuits in my life and didn't feel like I overmixed these, yet they come out dense and tough as many others have mentioned. The taste was just okay--it seemed like they needed salt or more garlic or more cheese or something. I wasn't real impressed.

Potato Soup V

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I made this as directed except I substituted vegetable bouillon since I'm vegetarian. It took forever for the milk to thicken--I ended up having to turn it up to medium heat. I would suggest starting to heat the milk as soon as you put the vegetables on the stove. I thought the soup was a little bland--we had to add a lot of salt and pepper. Overall, though, it was pretty good.

Aunt Carol's Spinach and Fish Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
I was not impressed with this. It wasn't gross, but wasn't good either. I won't be making it again.

Cheesy Fish Fillets with Spinach

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
I just didn't like the flavor of this--I don't know if it was the nutmeg or what. After eating this myself, I have a hard time imagining kids enjoying it!

Shrimp Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2007
I followed the directions except I made it without a crust. I make quiche quite often and found this one to be a bit bland. Considering how expensive the Gruyere was (I had never bought it before), I expected the quiche to be better. I would add some hot sauce or hot pepper next time. Like others, I had to cook mine 45-50 minutes.

Lentil Bulgur Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
This is excellent! It has a very light, refreshing taste. You may notice that green onions appear twice on the recipe. I believe that the "1 cup green onion" is supposed to be green bell pepper. That's how I made it anyway. I may decrease the dill seed just a tiny bit next time.

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies IV

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
I hadn't had nutmeg in sugar cookies before, and I didn't particularly like it. I wouldn't try making the cookies without it, though, because they would probably be really bland like so many sour cream sugar cookie recipes are. The good thing is that they bake up very well. The cookies really hold their shape instead of spreading and getting too poofy. They're also a nice, soft cookie. But I'll stick with my normal sugar cookie recipe because I just didn't like the flavor of these that much. If you grew up on sugar cookies flavored with nutmeg, you might like them more than I did.

Sour Cream Sugar Cookies V

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2007
It's true that these cookies are very soft, but they have no flavor at all. Use a good frosting on them because it is the frosting that has to supply all the flavor. I was able to cut out simple shapes (such as an ice cream cone), but the dough was too soft and gooey to use with narrow cookie cutters (like a cactus shape). One good thing is that because the dough is so moist, you can keep working with the dough scraps again and again. The cookies made with the scraps won't look perfect, of course, but they will still be soft. However, I will be sticking with my regular sugar cookie recipe that actually makes tasty cookies. If you want a puffy, super soft sugar cookie, this is the recipe for you. If you want flavor, look elsewhere.
