Apple Cider Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
I thought these were nice, although I'm not usually a huge fan of slightly sweet biscuits. My husband (also not usually a fan) ate about half of one. My son and daughter, who usually love stuff like this, did not care for it. I'm glad I tried it, but probably wouldn't make it again, just because of my family's tastes. However, if you like slightly sweet biscuits, I encourage you to try these. They really were quite good. The proportions of the recipe were just right and they did not come out dry at all. I handformed the biscuits, as I was in a hurry and didn't want to take time to roll them out and cut them.

White Bean Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
My husband prefers ground beef chilis to chicken chilis, but he really enjoyed this. In place of the tomatillos and green chiles, I used 1 pt of salsa verde (made with tomatillos and green chiles) that I had put up this summer. I also used 1 pt of homemade chicken stock, @ 2 cups frozen corn, and 1 pt of diced tomatoes I had canned myself. I didn't need to add salt or pepper, the seasoning turned out to be just fine. It's not my favorite white chili, but my husband really loved it. Thanks for the recipe! ETA: My husband singlehandedly ate all of the leftovers and asked me to make more. He keeps going on and on about what a great recipe this is. I'll definitely be adding this to our recipe box. Thanks!

Baked Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
This is a very forgiving recipe. I used a mix of frozen, fresh, and thawed from frozen berries, and only remembered to stir once (and then forgot and left it in the oven longer than 1 hour) and it still turned out quite nicely. I cooked it in a pyrex 2qt casserole dish with a lid, and although the sugar hadn't even completely mixed in when I took it out of the oven, the berries had all cooked and when I stirred then, it all came together quite nicely. There was no crystallized sugar on the dish at all. I stirred in the brandy (only used 2T because I'm not a huge fan of brandy and that was a great amount for us) and then recovered the dish and let it sit overnight and it has a nice light gel this morning. My children don't care for the lumps, but I expected that. I think my parents will enjoy this more grown-up cranberry sauce.

Curried Brown Rice Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
From the face my husband made when he tried this, I thought it would be terrible, but it wasn't. it was okay, but not something I would make again. I omitted the salt because used leftover brown rice that had been cooked with salt - but it still tasted too salty, I wouldn't do that again. I think the combination of texture and flavor just isn't the best for my family, but I am glad we tried it.

Crispy Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
This was okay, but I wouldn't make it again. It was rather bland and disappointing. After reading the reviews, I cut the rice vinegar down to 2 Tbsp and the cornstarch to 1 tsp (which was a good amount). I used slightly more ginger, green onion, and garlic than it called for, but it was still bland. The panko fried chicken was good (it always is!), but after dumping it into the sauce, even that lost a lot of its appeal. If I were to make it again (which I won't), I would probably add more brown sugar and would just pour the sauce over the top of the chicken at the table instead of combining them in the pan.

MMMMM... Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2011
At first I thought these tasted too similar to the boxed kind (which is just not as good as homemade), but the next day and the day after, they tasted much better. They are not my favorite ever brownie recipe but they are very good and very easy. They did take much longer to bake than the recipe said and even then I finally gave up and took them out before they were done since I don't mind my brownies being a little bit "sad." Thanks for the recipe.

Company Cauliflower

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
I made this to serve with roasted chicken and it was so good. Even my husband (not a big fan of cauliflower) ate his, although the children didn't care for it I subbed sunflower oil for the butter (my son is allergic to milk protein) and a spoon of the pan drippings for the bouillon. I also subbed cayenne for the black pepper (my son is also allergic to black pepper). It was SO good. The celery flavor is strong, but complements the cauliflower very nicely. Thanks for the great recipe! I will make this again!

Kofta Kebabs

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
I thought this was very good. My children weren't crazy about it, but I suppose I should be more surprised that they were willing to eat it at all. ;) I was worried that the amount of cinnamon would be too much, but it turned out to have the perfect flavor. I did substitute dried minced onion for the grated onion and I broiled them for about 7 minutes in my oven instead of grilling, since it was cold and rainy outside. I let them rest for just over an hour and did not make them into kabobs, just 9 smallish ovals of meat.

Mom's Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
These were so good. I have tried so many pancake recipes from this site and this is one of my two favorites. I had mine with homemade strawberry syrup, my daughter had homemade cherry syrup, and my son went for chocolate chips - all three were excellent. I also like the amount it makes, the last pancake recipe I tried here made about 5 times more than we needed and even though it said it refrigerated well, it didn't - this was the perfect amount and I would rather make a new batch each time than use leftover batter. I like that with no added sugar or flavorings, they were such a great vehicle for toppings. thank you for the great recipe!

Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
This was pretty good, but after reading all of the other reviews, I expected something more of it. I found the cinnamon flavor to be a little strong at first and the aftertaste to be somewhat acidic.

Grandma's Cranberry Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
yum! My son won't eat anything with chunks, so I just added the nuts, pineapple, sugar, and marshmallows to the food processor after I had pulverized the cranberries. My marshmallows were old and hard large ones so it took a while. Then I drizzled some whipping cream (more like half a cup since that was all I had) into the food processor at the end. My 4 year old, who normally would turn his nose up at something like this, said he loves it and called it cranberry whip ice cream. He even asked to take it in his school lunch tomorrow! I will definitely try this recipe again, but next time will try leaving out the sugar, it was awfully sweet. Oh, despite what another reviewer said, I would never use whipped topping instead of whipping cream. Whipped topping is incredible unhealthy and full of GMOs.

Orzo with Kale

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
I really wanted to like this, but the flavors didn't mesh well at all for me and the cooking method wasn't great either - if I had let the kale cook as long as it called for, it would have been burnt to a crisp. If I ever tried to make something like this again, I would leave out the lemon juice and nutmeg and used minced garlic instead of slices. But I doubt I would make it again, I think there are many tastier kale recipes on this site (and tastier orzo recipes as well, for that matter). Glad I tried it, but it is definitely not for me, and the rest of my family disliked it even more than I did.

My Favorite Beet Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
This was surprisingly good. I didn't much care for the salad dressing, but once I put it on the salad, all of the ingredients came together quite nicely and it tasted like something you'd have in a gourmet restaurant. My husband, who has never cared for beets, even ate almost his entire bowl of salad. The different ingredients didn't seem like they would mesh well, but they combined quite nicely and the salad looked very pretty as well. I'm glad I tried it.

Kelsey's Favorite Stuffed Green Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
My husband liked these a lot. I thought they were pretty good. I didn't precook the peppers since I like them to be more crisp than soggy. I left out the pepper since my son is allergic, and I subbed a few cloves minced garlic for the garlic powder. My peppers were organic ones from our csa and not as large as storebought peppers tend to be. My husband ate 4 halves (I cut them like a boat because we find them easier to eat that way) and asked if there was any more filling left. I had used the rest to freeze so we have a couple quick and easy meals for another time. Thanks for the recipe!

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
I love this soup. I have made it from fresh kale and from greens that I had sauteed and frozen, and it is so good each way. I've also made it from canned beans and tomatoes and from soaked dried beans and fresh tomatoes. The flavor is great and it is hearty and filling. Sometimes I add meatballs for my meat-loving husband and children, but it is equally good without.

Eggplant Croquettes

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
These were okay, but not my favorite. I can see how people would like them as a veggie burger. I roasted the eggplant in the oven since microwaving destroys nutrients and then I put all ingredients in the food processor for easy mixing. I fried them in a combo of chicken schmaltz, butter, and olive oil, since that was what I had on hand. The flavor was good, but not really eggplanty enough for me, more bread crumb- and cheesy. So probably a great recipe if you're not a true eggplant fan and are trying to hide the taste. But if you really enjoy the flavor of eggplant, you might want to cut the bread and cheese down to let the eggplant shine through.

Italian Restaurant-Style Salad Dressing II

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly but used homemade mayo and organic corn syrup and olive oil, so it would be GMO free and healthier. I didn't think the dressing tasted anything like Olive Garden's, but it was very tasty in its own right. I did not find that it needed extra sugar.
