Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
After multiple frustrating incidents today (not having enough cheese, not being able to find the right dish, etc), I was wondering if these would be worth the trouble. I made a half recipe following the instructions exactly, and they turned out great. Light and creamy, with a nice golden brown crust around the edges. They have a great salty taste, and the spinach isn't overpowering. Yummy recipe, and worth the trouble!

Garlic Carrots

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
I was surprised at how good these were. I followed the recipe as directed, only I halved it and used petite carrots (which seemed to be the perfect size). I don't use thyme very much, but when I added it the smell created by the combination of thyme, garlic, and carrot was delicious. They tasted as great as they smelled, and I will definitely make again! My boyfriend (who usually doesn't care for sweet vegetables) cleaned his plate - great way to use carrots without adding a lot of sugar, and a nice side dish that's a little different. Thanks!

Brown Sugar Meatloaf

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
Delicious every time. I spread the glaze on top of the meatloaf as suggested by other reviewers - it just makes more sense. Definitely tastes better with fresh ginger, but dried will do in a pinch. I made a meat cake using this recipe for my boyfriend's birthday, and he loved it! I doubled the meat recipe and spread between 3 foil pie pans (easier clean-up), and spread the glaze on two of the layers. When they were done I stacked them up, trimmed the sides, and covered in instant mashed potatoes (they're creamier and easier to spread than homemade). He didn't even realize it wasn't a dessert cake at first, then when he cut into it, he was even more excited that it was meatloaf! Thanks for this great, great recipe!

Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2010
I've made this dish several times, and use any kind of berries that are fresh and on sale. You can easily make a vegan version using margarine and soy milk (I use original) - tastes just as great and you don't feel like you're missing anything. Great basic recipe!

Grilled Mediterranean Vegetable Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2008
This sandwich is DELICIOUS. I did make a few changes, but I think it would be good a variety of ways. I swapped the mushrooms for sun dried tomatoes and added some provolone, then grilled the whole thing in my Foreman grill to melt the cheese and give the bread a nice crispy texture. I wish I had taken the advice of another reviewer and sliced the eggplant thicker - some of the thinner slices shrank and burned. Overall, the flavors melded really well together - the garlic mayo is a must!

Amy's Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2008
This recipe has a lot of potential, but is WAY too garlicky - even for a garlic fan like myself! After reading reviews I too cut down the red pepper flakes, but the combination of the 1/2 T of pepper and the full T of garlic just made for a harsh, overpowering bite. The burgers were moist and had a nice texture (which can be difficult with ground turkey), but the flavor was unfortunately bitter and unpleasant. If I made this again, I would use 1/2 T at most of the garlic, and maybe add some worcestershire sauce for a fuller flavor.

Stuffed Pattypan Squash

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2008
This dish is excellent! Since I'm unfamiliar with pattypan squash and had trouble finding it at the grocery store, I stuck with yellow squash and it turned out great. I boiled 2 10" squashes in enough boiling water for them to float freely in and made sure to turn them so they would cook evenly. I shaved off a side lengthwise to hollow them out, and then followed the rest of the recipe loosely. With the combination of bacon, onion, breadcrumbs, and cheese, you can't go wrong! I did cut down on the breadcrumbs to have a more balanced stuffing. After about 12-14 minutes, a single squash was a hearty side dish to split for two, and was a nice change from the usual potatoes we have on the side. Great recipe!

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich with Garlic Mayo

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2006
I made this recipe for 50 of my female hall mates at my college, and they loved it! We used sliced provolone instead of mozzarella and sauted some mushrooms as well. Great recipe!
