Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
Warning, these are addictive! Even with a few substitutions (our local grocery didn't have all the correct ingredients), these were the best spring rolls we have ever had. My husband couldn't stop eating them!! They were not as time intensive as I expected, and we were able to freeze half of them to eat at a later date.

Paul's Pumpkin Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2011
These were great. I made them (minus the froting) for my preschooler's snack day (when we provide snack for all of the children in the class) and used 2 cups of pumpkin that I had pureed and frozen this fall. He told me he wasn't going to like them, but I asked him to try it, and when he came out of school, he said "mom, I liked the pumpkin bars, they did not have any pumpkin in them!" They smelled heavenly and the teachers told me that they kept the extras and ate them (they usually send the extras back home) because they were so delicious. I love how light and fluffy they are. I'll bet they are incredible with the icing. I'll definitely be making this recipe again. Thank you!

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!

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.

Rob's Spicy Sweet Buffalo Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2011
wow, this was great! My husband is a big fan of buffalo wings, but doesn't like how much "work" it is to get enough meat off the wings, so this sounded perfect for him. I only had 2 boneless skinless breasts (.88 lb) so I cut the recipe in half. I just barely had enough of the flour/spice mix to cover the meat, I think if I had had a full pound of chicken, I would have needed more. The sauce didn't look like enough, but turned out to be the exact right amount. It was the perfect combination of spicy and sweet for us, not too much of either. Even my two year old loved it! Thanks for the great recipe.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
This was really good, especially over rice. It cooked perfectly and had a nice flavor. My family prefers pan fried lemon tilapia, but this is a nice change to have occasionally.

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.

Eggplant Delight

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2009
I sliced the eggplant thinner and sprinkled the slices with garlic salt and fresh cracked pepper while I was frying them. It took a lot more oil than the recipe called for, each batch of eggplant soaked all the oil out of the pan and left it dry. After sauteeing the eggplant, I topped it with the onions and put some fresh tomato slices under the cheese per other reviewers suggestions. I wasn't wild about the tomato, but it was my husband's favorite part. Thanks for the recipe!

Chiles Rellenos Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2008
Unfortunately, our grocery store didn't have poblano chiles, but I had a pregnancy craving, so I tried making this with a jar of hot green salsa (made with jalapenos) and it turned out delicious. Next time I would only use half a jar, since it was a bit soupy on bottom. I'd also only use half a jar of the salsa on top or would cook it longer without the top salsa and just serve it on the side. It was so delicious my husband asked for leftovers the next night (he never does this) - and it was just as good reheated. I used shredded chicken breast from a rotisserie chicken and had to substitute half and half for 3oz of the evap. milk since I only had a 5oz can. This is definitely a keeper recipe, I'm looking forward to making it again when I can find the peppers, but I'm glad to have an alternate solution as well.

Condensed Milk Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
I made this with a can of dulce de leche (the pre-thickened caramel version of sweetened condensed milk found in the latin section of the grocery store) because I didn't realize until too late that I was out of sweetened condensed milk. I had to add a couple tbsp of evap. milk to compensate for the extra thickness (and ommitted the water), but it turned out perfectly - I would do it this way every time now. It also came together super quickly with no wait time and was a great thickness for spreading. My son usually prefers cake to frosting, but he actually ate all the frosting and left most of the cake this time! We all really enjoyed it and will definitely make it again.

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!

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2008
This was really good. If I were a coffee drinker, I would drink it this way all of the time. I made it as a treat for my husband when he asked for coffee while I was making a vietnamese inspired meal and he really liked it as well. He usually just drinks plain iced coffee. He did have to add extra ice to this.

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!

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!!

Waffles II

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
This recipe is not very different from the one that came with my waffle maker, so I was surprised by how much better the results are. My 4 year old actually ate 3 of them and asked for more. Even the baby ate a whole one (plain without syrup). They are great with agave nectar (instead of maple syrup) and fresh blackberries on top. We loved them with blueberries added into the batter as well. I'm really glad I gave this recipe a try, I will definitely be making these again. Well worth the extra step of beating the egg whites seperately and mixing them in.

Beef Brisket on Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
Wow, this was terrific! I halved the recipe and it worked out great for our family of 5. There was only enough of the ginger and mustard mixture to cover one side of the brisket, so I sprinkled the other side liberally with high quality organic garlic salt and freshly cracked black pepper. I cooked it in a large cast iron skillet and shortened the cooking time a little bit, since my brisket was half the size of the one called for in the recipe. I also used the full 2 tbsp of brown sugar since my family likes sweet bbq sauce even though I only did half the amt of the other ingredients. (and I used organic ketchup so we wouldn't have any nasty HFCS marring our food). We loved it and will definitely come back to this recipe again, thank you!

Bow Ties with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
This has been a favorite recipe of ours for 5 years now. I have made it with all kinds of variations - fresh tomatoes vs diced canned ones, half and half instead of cream, adding spinach, mushrooms, zucchini, or other veggies, and I always use local pork sausage since we prefer fresh natural sausage with no added nitrates. Each time I make it for friends or family, I get asked to share the recipe. Thanks so much for this great recipe!

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2009
Took the advice of other reviewers and switched the amounts of soy and vinegar. We loved it! My husband (who usually leaves some asparagus on his plate) ate all of his and asked for more. The sauce was great for dipping grilled steak in as well.
