Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
Great seasoning! I did add a little cornstarch to help thicken things up but other than that I followed the recipe to a "T". I used 1 lb ground turkey, sprinkled on 2 TBS of seasoning and then added 2/3 cup of beef broth and the taco meat was delicious! Great recipe :)

Hummus III

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2011
Great base recipe - I used a little less tahini and a little of the saved bean "juice". I also just added the olive oil and paprika to the mixture instead of drizzling on top. Delicious!

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
Very good! My changes: used 4 cups chicken stock instead of half stock/half water. I also used a 28 oz can of San Marzano crushed tomatoes instead of tomato sauce. Great, fresh flavor and hearty too.

Chicken Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
Made this soup today and it's very good! I actually just threw everything in the crock pot (uncooked rice, cooked and shredded rotisserie chicken, then all the veggies and spices and broth and cream of mushroom soup) and let it cook on low all day. There was absolutely no need to thicken it with the roux (and I was happy to leave out that extra fat!) - the rice thickened it beautifully in the slow cooker. I actually ended up adding more broth near the end, as it was almost too thick! Nice flavor and hearty soup. Will make again.

Lemon Bars I

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2009
Delicious! Followed the recipe exactly except I did add one extra tbsp of butter to the crust as per other people's suggestion. These are really easy and really good! If you are a big fan of lemon, you might want to add more zest/juice to the filling, but it's perfectly good the way it is as well.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
Delicious! Per some of the other suggestions, I added some feta cheese. It rounded it out perfectly. YUM!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: May 18, 2011
These are delicious as written, but next time I think I might add some vanilla to the batter. It lacked a little *something* for my taste, and I think that might be it. Overall, a delightful little muffin. They come out of the oven looking like they belong in a magazine - thanks for the great recipe! *UPDATE* Second time I made them I added a tsp of vanilla to the batter and an extra banana. Even better this way!

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
Exactly what I was looking for when I went looking for a black bean recipe. They are spicy though, so you might want to cut the cayenne back if you are serving to kids or others who don't appreciate the heat factor!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
These are delicious! I use the slicer attachment on my food processor to slice the potatoes thinly and then layer half the potatoes, pour half the cheese, then layer the rest of the potatoes and then pour the rest of the cheese. I do put a little more cheese in the sauce because we like it cheesy. My only issue with these have been that the cheese burns around the edges - I reduced the cooking temp to 350 and cooked for 1.5 hours and they were perfect. Removed foil for last 20 minutes or so to get a nice golden brown crust on top. YUM!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
Excellent basic sugar cookie recipe - I make this all the time now! To frost I use powdered sugar and milk, whisking just enough milk in to thin it so it easily spreads, but isn't so runny that it runs off the cookies. This is the easiest frosting ever and very easy to dye with food coloring to make festive cookies! It's perfect with this cookie recipe.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
I much prefer the Chicken Tortilla Soup II recipe on this site. This one was just ok - nothing too exciting. The other recipe is WOW. Tastes like a restaurant quality soup.

Chicken Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
THIS is the tortilla soup recipe I've been looking for! Fresh, simple flavors and hearty to boot! I like to let it cook a little longer so the tortillas "melt" completely into the soup and thicken it up. Gives it great flavor. Thanks for a wonderful recipe! Update: have made this several times now and two things I will definitely do from now is is 1.) add a can of black beans, and 2.) use San Marzano crushed tomatoes instead of just diced. I still LOVE this soup!!

Potato Leek Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
I give this recipe 5 stars because it's great to find a lower fat version of this recipe! It's a good, solid potato leek soup - nothing fancy, but you won't believe that it doesn't have any milk or cream in it. I used only a TBSP of butter to saute the leeks (as I am on a low fat diet) plus a little olive oil, and that's all the fat in the whole thing. Healthy, hearty and DELICIOUS! I will add, though, that 6 cups of stock was not nearly enough liquid. I ended up adding 2 more cups while cooking and then another cup or so of water to thin the soup out to the correct consistency. Great with crusty bread on a cold night.

Amy's Healthy Fruity

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2007
Really good staple recipe. I use vanilla yogurt in lieu of the plain just because it's a little sweeter and goes better with the fruit. No soy milk powder, but it's not necessary. I also did add ice. My 2 year old and I have these every morning for breakfast. Delicious!

Best Brussels sprouts I've ever had. My non-sprout eating husband went back for seconds. Thanks for a great dish!

White Texas Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
This cake is absolutely delicious and very versatile. I can only really rate the cake, as I did not choose to make the frosting, but the cake - oh, the CAKE! Such great texture and amazing flavor. It's incredible what a tsp of almond extract can do for a cake. I've made it twice now - once as a sheet cake with chocolate frosting and once I poured it in two round cake pans and made a layer cake (and had it with vanilla frosting from a can, whipped with a tsp of almond extract to complement the cake flavor). Both times were spectacular and I will make this cake again and again and again. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!

Proper English Cottage Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
This was just ok. It's certainly not an "authentic" tasting Cottage Pie, but it was a flavorful meal, once I tweaked it a little. Worcestershire sauce was a must and I will omit the cinnamon next time. Nutmeg would be more authentic anyway.

The exact blend of flavor you want from a pumpkin pie. Thank you! I used it with Mrs. Siggs Pumpkin Pie recipe on this site and it turned out beautifully.

Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
Great basic recipe for a stew. I omit corn and use celery, use beef broth instead of water, and definitely add more Worcestershire and some A-1. Other than that, this is a solid recipe.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
This is a fantastic recipe! I will never buy boxed brownie mix again. Delicious and moist and yummy. I took someone's advice and did not beat the ingredients in, but rather stirred them. That made for a less cake-like and more chewy texture. I also added chocolate chips as the last ingredient and that made them extra special. Thanks for the recipe!
