My Favorite Pork Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2014
Wow 10 stars from my family - they loved it. I use recipes like this as an opportunity to clean out the fridge. I had an orange and yellow bell pepper and fresh spinach that had seen better days and needed to be used up. I had no carrots but threw in a shallot. More fresh garlic since we love it. I also had 2 whole wheat hot dog buns that I toasted and crunched up for the bread crumbs. Threw in some wheat bran although a lot less of both crumbs and wheat bran, since I felt like the 1 cup of dry was too much. Used less salt and added some granulated garlic (we are garlic nuts) also a few dashes of Cholula. On the top I just squirted ketchup. Cooked it in my pampered chef mini loaf stone for around 40 minutes. I love that thing for meatloaf! Taking it to my mom -she's going to love having meatloaf in the freezer she can just heat it up. Great recipe to customize to your families preferences/seasonings.

Morgan's Amazing Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2014
Yum. My son's girlfriend only likes white chocolate so I made this for her. She loved it! I used almond bark and added a bit of mint extract. Easy and very good.

Homemade Melt-In-Your-Mouth Dark Chocolate (Paleo)

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2014
Yum! Delish. I wasn't sure what it was going to taste like but it's very, very good. I added some Vietnamese cinnamon. Next time I'm going to add chopped nuts. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Roasted Asparagus and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2014
My asparagus was really thin so I put it in the oven after the mushrooms had been in about 7 minutes. Cooked it for 7 more minutes because I like my asparagus very al dente. Also added rough chopped up garlic with the asparagus. Sprinkled with Parmesan after it cooked. I felt like my fresh rosemary took on a burnt flavor so next time I'll leave it out.

Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2014
I'm taking off 1 star because my first batch was really, really overcooked. My asparagus is pretty thin but the garlic was also almost burnt so I feel like the temp/time is off (and I even took it out early). For the second batch I cooked it at 400 for 8 minutes and it was a lot better. I didn't measure, just drizzled some oil, used a few turns of my salt and pepper grinders and used a big clove of garlic rough chopped.

Baked Denver Omelet

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2014
Yummy, filling breakfast. I saw this in the AR magazine and loved the tip about sauteing the veggies in the oven. Brilliant, why haven't I ever thought of that?? I'm a lazy cook so I loved this tip. I used cut up bacon, cooked it for a bit til it was starting to brown, then added some packaged hash browns that needed to be used up, tossed those in with finely chopped onion, jalapeno, bell pepper and banana pepper (all from my garden and needed to be used). I used buttermilk and a splash of half and half. I obviously can't read correctly because I thought it said 350 and I'm so glad I did that. Mine was a tad bit overcooked at 350. I can imagine at 400 it's way overcooked. I left out the butter since the bacon provided some grease. I used 1 less egg and less cheese (a mix of sharp cheddar and jalapeno jack). We like things spicy. Ate it with a hatch green chili salsa. Husband ate it in a corn tortilla. Very good, thanks for the recipe.

Oven Fried Potatoes I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
5++ stars. When my husband tells me to keep a recipe, that's serious business, lol! I only had 4 russets so that's what I used. I used 3 T of butter and a bit less bacon (only because bacon is like gold in this house). I also added a small bell pepper from the garden and next time I'll add a jalapeno. I had to cook mine longer and I added sharp cheese at the end. They were glorious and reminded my husband of Irish Potatoes that we used to get when we were in college from a local pub type restaurant.

Oven Fried Chicken II

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2014
We really loved this chicken. I didn't use that much oil and I played around with the recipe a bit using buttermilk instead of eggs and playing around with the breading ingredients but I liked this method with the oil a lot. I make a lot of oven fried chicken and this was really good. I did have a mix of drumsticks and thighs and the drumsticks seemed to work better.

I also halved it and baked in a square pan. Used less brown sugar. So, so good!

Cindy's Jambalaya

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
So delicious! So easy to use up leftovers. We had leftovers from a crab dinner so I made fish stock and used that in place of the chicken. I also had leftover brown rice and some roasted corn that I added at the end.

Grilled Onions and Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2014
These were delicious and totally devoured. I went back for more and the boys had eaten every bit of it. I didn't have the full amount of mayo so I subbed in some sour cream and also a bit of Ranch dressing. I messed with the spices (I make an all purpose low salt mix) and added lots of granulated garlic and more pepper (we love pepper). I had some sharp cheddar in the fridge that needed to be used so I tossed some in. Yum, I might just make some more today. I'm going to try and use greek yogurt and see if that works since I'm out of mayo.

Low-Carb Chocolate Peanut Butter Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2014
This is great! So refreshing. I only have sweetened vanilla almond milk so I didn't use the sugar or vanilla. I used french vanilla coffee creamer for the heavy cream. I added a frozen banana and just eyeballed the peanut butter since I don't like it heavily pb*ery. Thanks for the recipe!

Monkey Bread Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
Yummy! I'm a huge fan of anything sprinkled with cinnamon and sugar. I scaled it down to just one tube since I'm the only one that will eat sweets. I wish I had thought of pineapple, that would have been so good with it. Oh well, I'll save that idea for next time. I do kind of miss having the gooey caramel that you get when you make this in a pan, but this was still a tasty, easy snack. Thanks for sharing this creative, run recipe!

Sugar-Free Cardamom-Mango Smoothie

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2014
I love cardamom and it was delicious in this smoothie. I scaled this back since I'm only making it for myself - I used one mango and it was super juicy and sweet. I also used a sweetened vanilla almond milk so I had no need for the fake sugar (which I'm very leery of anyway). Used greek yogurt. I had to add a lot more ice which really diluted the flavor. I should have used frozen fruit. I did enjoy it, but I'll stick to my normal smoothie recipe.

Corn Casserole I

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2014
This was easy and pretty good. I did use half the amount of butter and half-n-half for part of the corn liquid. The pasta that I used came out of a box of mac and cheese so I sprinkled in a bit of the cheese packet. Added in chopped green chilies and leftover grilled chicken (chicken during the last 30 minutes) to make it more of a meal. Still feel it needs a bit more flavor. Next time I'll use hot green chilies and add fresh garlic and cracked pepper.

Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
Good stuff. I used what I had an apple, fresh pitted cherries, mango, mandarin oranges, and strawberries. I wish I had used less oil.

Baked Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
I scaled this down since I'm the only one eating it. I couldn't get my fresh mozzarella to melt with the cream cheese very well. For me this was a bit too cream cheesy and needed something - a pinch of salt maybe? I also toasted my bread a bit, I like it crunchy and the broiling process always leaves the bottom too soft.

Sriracha Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
Easy, tasty breakfast. I'm not sure if the butter amount is a typo but I only needed about a teaspoon. I also used 1/2 t of sriracha. Added some garlic powder and garlic chives. Next time I think I'll add some spinach at the end.

Caprese Salad with Balsamic Reduction

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
I loved this. The reduction was easy to do in the microwave. We grew a new tomato this year "Golden Jubilee" that was fantastic in this recipe.
