Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
These are great. I made them slightly healthier by using 1/3 whole wheat flour and decreasing the sugar slightly. Added a touch of vanilla and cinnamon for more oomph.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
I LOVE these turkey burgers. I normally find turkey burgers really boring but these completely changed my mind. They always come out juicy and flavorful and meaty.

Oatmeal-Cinnamon Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2010
Great base recipe, but they stuck to the papers so I won't use them next time. These had the perfect light chewy texture I wanted. I used 2% milk instead of buttermilk and added 2 tablespoons of melted butter for more moisture. I also folded in some orange-flavored dried cranberries and will definitely do that again.

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
Great basic kale and bean soup. I added extra liquid because I added elbow pasta in the last 7 minutes to make it more substantial. I also sauteed my onions for a few minutes before adding the garlic.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Love it! I didn't have any broth on hand so I just used water. Kicked up the cumin and cayenne a little and used one can of beans plus a little that was leftover from a can I'd already opened. I also added an orange bell pepper with my onions and garlic. Very easy recipe to adapt to your own tastes.

Sausage Cabbage Skillet

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Pretty good! I skipped the bell pepper, and added in extra garlic, a sliced carrot, and about 2 tablespoons of vegetable broth to help get it cooking. My potatoes were sliced thinly with a mandolin, but it still took about 25 minutes to cook.

Excellent Broccoli Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2009
Tasty! I had to make a few changes, but this was a good base. I made about 1/3 of the recipe. I added a small finely diced onion to roux. For my liquid, I used 4 cups homemade veggie stock, 1 cup milk, and 1 cup heavy cream that I had on hand and wanted to use up. I used extra broccoli, no proccessed cheese, and extra cheddar. I also blended most of it to make it creamy. I ended up needing more pepper than suggested as well.

Sirloin Tips and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
This was so easy and so good. I had 2.5 pounds of meat so I used more tomato sauce, wine, and garlic. I also added in a little chopped onion with the garlic and beef. I put a bay leaf and a little oregano in the sauce while it simmered and served it all over mashed potatoes. I'll probably make noodles for the leftovers.

Breaded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2008
These were a huge hit at Thanksgiving. They cooked perfectly, stil firm but tender. I used Italian bread crumbs. I accidently burned them when broiling, but then just pulled off the outer burned leaves and nobody could tell.

Beef Fajitas

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
I thought this was bland and too lemony. I'll try something different next time with more spices.

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2008
I must have done something wrong because mine got little chunks throughout. But it tasted good and met the dessert craving I had.

California Italian Wedding Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
Tasty! I didn't have lean beef so I boiled my meatballs in a separate pot of water for about two minutes, drained them, then added them to the broth. That removed a lot of grease that I'm glad didn't end up in my soup. I also added a little fresh oregano and some fennel seeds to the meatballs. This recipe is a keeper.

Hodie's Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
I basically followed the recipe and it was pretty good, just a tad too sweet. I also threw in a clove of garlic with the onion, some red pepper flakes, and a splash of worsheshire sauce

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: May 25, 2008
Very good and so easy. I also used half and half and cut at least one tablespoon of butter out. This would be very easy to make for company.

Lamb Shank Braised in White Wine with Rosemary

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
Well that was easy! Five stars just for the convenience. The flavor was great, too, so this will stay in the recipe box. Near the end of the cooking time, I threw some asparagus and carrots into the oven to roast and heated up some leftover potatoes for a very easy dinner. I took others' suggestion to make gravy by whisking in some flour with the liquid after the meat was plated. Tasted great with the veggies.

Spinach and Cheese Stuffed Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
This a good base recipe but I had to make a few modifications to make it great. The fennel seeds were a great addition. I added about a cup of mozzarella to the cheese mixture to make it go further. I also used a combination of fresh spinach and swiss chard and extra garlic and extra tomato sauce. I think it's important to cook the shells till tender, as suggested by the recipe, because they are pretty thick. It might work to boil them a shorter time if you really use a lot of sauce, like you would for a lasagna.

Irish Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
Turned out great! I thought there was too much water, though, so I left the lid off and let it reduce at the end. Ate it with beer bread. edit: Made it again and this time added celery with the carrots. I probably doubled or tripled the vegetables. I also used lamb neck meat this time, still on the bone, then pulled it off when it was tender. Great recipe and versitile!

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2008
Rich and delicious. I baked it it in small ramekins that were greased and dusted with cocoa powder. Cooking time was decreased by about 15 minutes. I poured blackberry sauce over the top and ate them straight from the ramekins. My guests couldn't finish theirs so I might make them even smaller next time.
