Curried Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2008
This is quite good. My husband loved it but I thought it was a bit on the salty side--perhaps because there was salt already added to the broth. I used white onions instead of green, olive oil instead of butter/margarine, and toasted sunflower seeds instead of almonds (b/c I ran out). This mix worked well. I would make this again.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2008
This recipe is fabulous. I actually have a rotisserie thingy for my oven and the chicken comes out great. After following the recipe to a T the first time, I felt that it wasn't quite flavorfull enough, so I doubled all the spices in the rub except for the salt, pepper and cayanne pepper. I allow the chicken to sit in this rub a good 12 hours before cooking. Now the chicken is over the top amazing!

Moroccan Chicken and Whole Grain Couscous

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2008
My husband loved this and I thought it was quite good, too. I actually made the recipe for 2 servings and didn't add the beans, but added extra zucchini to make up for it. Also, added extra chicken broth to have more stuff to pour over the couscous. Turned out great.

Carrot Cake I

Reviewed: May 28, 2008
This carrot cake has been quite a hit! I've made three of them so far--one was requested as a gift for a party where it received many compliments. I reduced the sugar as suggested and used 1/2 white/brown sugar. In the last 2 cakes I did, I'd run out of white flour and decided "what the hay" and used whole wheat. The whole wheat actually came out better and I highly recommend it. Additionally, I did not use the frosting recipe. Instead, I made a simple sugar glaze using powdered sugar and water--about 1 to 1 and 1/2 Cups powdered sugar mixed with 2 Tablespoons water. Poured over top and allowed to cool for about an hour in the fridge. Non-dairy and just right.

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
These came out great. I only needed half the amount of baking soda solution. I mixed sugar and cinnamon together in the coffee grinder, which made the sugar finer and mixed the two more completely. I painted on melted butter and dipped the pretzels in the sugar/cinnamon mixture. The effect was on par with "professional" pretzels. Good stuff:)

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
It's too bad there aren't more stars! This recipe is THAT good. All my friends are crazy about these brownies and I can't get enough of them. These are like Duncan Hines brownies in texture but they're way tastier. I've tried this recipe with canola oil instead of butter/margarine and it comes out just fine, though slightly less tasty--that is to say that only I noticed the difference and my friends/family didn't.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
These are fantastic! I used 1 C whole wheat flour and the rest white flour. The first time I made the muffins, I substituted oil for butter/margarine in the muffins and used margarine for the topping. The second time I made them I substituted oil in both parts and it came out the same as with the butter/margarine. Lesson learned: always use oil for margarine when possible. It's SO much healthier!

Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies II

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2007
They're ok. Nothing spectacular. Maybe I'm a CCC snob, I dunno. One thing the recipe doesn't specify is how large the cookie dough droppings should be. I used TBS-sized droppings (ha! that sounds funny) and I had to bake them for 15 minutes rather than the time mentioned here. Also, it made much more than 12 servings. I figured 1 serving=1 cookie. It made about 48 cookies.

Tomato and Basil Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
This was fantastic!!! I changed it slightly based on other people's suggestions. I only used 1 tomato (seeded but not peeled) and about 4-5 sundried tomato halves in oil. I chopped those up and tossed with the flour and basil. I only used ONE teaspoon of basil. I think that made a difference. I used the No Roll Pie Crust II (which I DID bake beforehand). I only had 2 eggs, so I added a bit more milk (3%) to compensate. The recipe turned out great!!! Next time I may double it (maybe not all the cheese) and go crustless. I HIGHLY recommend this recipe with my changes.

Buttery Cinnamon Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
I LOVED this cake. Recommended. I think I used whole wheat flour (I made this a while back) and it was still fine.

Giant Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
I thought this turned out quite good (though mine was also pretty dense). Some friends said it was really salty. And it possibly was--though I like ccc's to be slightly salty (as is normal). I don't know why, I followed the recipe exactly.

Martha's Vegetable Beef Soup

It was ok. Neither here nor there. Seemed like it'd be a good pasta sauce.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
A great basic recipe. I used broccoli and a low fat French cheese (5%) as well as feta. It turned out pretty good. I don't think I used enough cheese though, so the egg was a little much. But it was my fault, not the recipe's.

Zucchini with Chickpea and Mushroom Stuffing

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
These are fabulous. I can't believe this recipe doesn't have more reviews! The real secret to making this great is that you need to food process the filling until it's smooth. My friends and especially my finance and his family LOVE this recipe. Definitely worth trying. It does take a little time, but it's SO worth it!

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
This soup is unbelievably amazing. I've made it time and again and it's always a wonderful and healthy crowd pleaser. I double the cumin and that about does it. A very special soup.
