Marinated Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
This was terrific! I've been searching for a while for a good soy-free marinade, and this will definitely be a keeper for our family. Thanks so much for the great recipe!

Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2010
These are very good! I followed the recipe exactly, although I did take other reviewers' recommendations and stick a clove of garlic in two of the jars. I couldn't stop snacking on them right off the bat and am looking forward to see how they taste after a few days in the jars. This made almost 4 pints for us. I think I could have included 8 cups of cucumbers instead of 7. Might try adding a pinch of alum next time like another reviewer recommended. thanks!

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
I have made this recipe many times over the past 5 years. I've tried a lot of other scone recipes, but we always keep coming back to this one, it is definitely the family favorite. I've noticed that sometimes I need to add a little extra orange juice, depending on the humidity. Thank you so much for the recipe, it is a lovely treat for us!

Marinated Flank Steak with Peppers

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2010
This was very good. It's hard to find a soy-free beef marinade, but this is a great one for fajitas/flank steak. It definitely tasted very lime-y on its own (still tasty, but definitely lime-y), but when wrapped up in a tortilla with the sauteed veggies, cheese, fresh tomatoes, and guacamole, it was perfect. I'll be using this again next time I make flank steak fajitas. Thank you!

Seasoning For Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2010
We really like this taco seasoning mix, I've tried many on this site, but this is one of our favorites. My kids always ask for seconds on their taco meat when I make this. Thanks for the great recipe!

Baked Buffalo Wings

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
these were great. I made three different kinds of wings b/c I didn't think my kids would want these spicy ones but thought my husband would love them - well, he did love them, but my 5 yr old wouldn't touch the others, but loved "Daddy's chicken" as well. Next time, this will be the only recipe I make. I followed it exactly, using sriracha sauce for the hot sauce. Yum! thanks for the great recipe.

Wings with Mint Leaves and Honey

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
We were not crazy about these when made strictly according to the recipe. However, I had some leftover wings from another recipe that I had lightly coated with in a mixture of 3/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp cayenne, 1/2 tsp garlic powder, and 1/2 tsp salt, and refrigerated for an hour. I spread the garlic mint mixture on top of those instead of trying to force it under the skin, and dipped them in the honey sauce and they turned out really well. We will probably make these again with that light coating of flour and spices and without the mint (we're not big mint lovers). The lemon honey butter sauce alone is 5+ stars. Some of it dripped onto my green beans and they were so good that I plan to make a batch of the sauce to toss with green beans next time I want a special side dish. Thank you!

Baked Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
These were not that good. Although nicely crisped, they were surprisingly bland. I followed the recipe exactly, except for adding 1 tsp onion powder on the recommendation of other reviewers. My three children each took one bite and refused to eat any more although they usually like chicken. If I were to make these again, I would substitute garlic salt for the garlic powder. But I can't imagine that I will make them again.

Radish Top Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
This was not that great for us, just okay. Even though I followed the recipe exactly and blended it a long time, it never seemed to get smooth, there were little fibrous bits of radish green that made you feel like you had to chew the soup. It was fun to try, but I don't think I will be making it again. Thanks anyway!

Parmesan Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
this was okay but not stellar. I liked it, but the rest of my family prefers the other ways that we usually cook asparagus over this one. Still, it was fun to try something new. Thanks!

Thanksgiving Beets

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
These were pretty good. They tasted bitter when hot, but when they cooled down, they were sweet and tasty. That said, it seems to me that beets are one of those foods that people have very set ideas about, either you like them or you hate them. My husband and sons wouldn't touch them and my 33 yr old husband made horrible gagging noises after tasting one on my request (this is very out of character for him). The baby and I liked them quite well though.

'Out of Salad Dressing' Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
This is a lot like a simplified caesar salad dressing. My husband liked it a lot, he even went back for seconds. thanks!

Chunky Monkey Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
My son requested banana chocolate chip pancakes for his birthday, and this had good reviews so I thought we'd give it a try. I followed the recipe exactly but omitted the nuts for the kids and just sprinkled them on top of mine and my husband's. We didn't think these were anything special and my kids were not fans of the chunks. I'm glad we tried it, but won't be making it again.

Cabbage and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
My family did not care for this at all. We found it to be quite bland and weren't fans of the texture. Everyone left their servings almost untouched after the first taste.

Lettuce with Buttermilk Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
my husband really enjoyed this, thanks for the great recipe! ETA: one year later, this is still a favorite in our house, great for all the fresh springtime lettuce from our organic CSA. I used homemade whole egg mayonnaise (recipe also from this site), local buttermilk, and subbed live Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar for the white, for added probiotic help. I double the recipe when I make it now because we love it so much. I just put everything in a pint sized mason jar, give a little stir and then shake it up. Yum!!

Rudy's Garlic Scape Pesto

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
This made just the right amount to freeze in one ice cube tray. I did take out one of the "cubes" before it was frozen and tossed it over some pasta. My 2 yr old ate it, but no one else really cared for it. I've read that it mellows after freezing, so I am hoping we'll like it better if we try it in a few months. I'm giving it 4 stars for the benefit of the doubt. For now, we'll stick with sauteeing our scapes in eggs and veggie stir fries.

International Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2010
These are not that great. They are very sweet (I think that's the part that makes them like the IHOP ones?) but other than that have pretty much no flavor, they are really bland. I followed the recipe exactly as well (although I did sub white whole wheat flour instead of ap flour) and didn't have a problem with the consistency like some other reviewers did. I just didn't think they had any flavor. Even my kids weren't that impressed with them. I won't be making this recipe again.

Soy Sauce Substitute

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
this worked out great for us, thanks so much for the recipe! I suspect my daughter has a soy allergy and it is really nice to find a good substitute for soy sauce so we can enjoy some of our favorite recipes. Thanks!

Kalbi (Marinated Beef Short Ribs)

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
This did not work for us at all. The flavor was very good (hence the 3 stars) on the tiny portion that was edible, but the ribs didn't grill right at all. I think it would have been much better to try this marinade with slow cooking the ribs instead of grilling them. They were almost impossible to eat and mostly went to waste, it was very disappointing.
