Whole Wheat Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2007
Nice coarse texture with the wheat flour, which I liked. I did it by hand and yes, it was hard to knead! I also had to add water to get it to stick together. It never even occurred to me to use my KitchenAid mixer!

Super Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
I made one small change - I swapped out the vegetable oil and used coconut oil. Wow, they were fantastic!!! They tasted buttery, crispy, but with a little tropical twist. Highly recommended!

Seafood Stuffed Avocados

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2005
These are really good for a light lunch. I omitted the cucumber, used cilantro instead of parsley, and added the chopped avocado in the mixture. I also added some spices to jazz things up a little because otherwise it's fairly bland. By experimenting with my ingredients and seasonings I've discovered a mixture that I really like. I've made these many times now!

Lobster Tails Steamed in Beer

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2011
The beer changes the flavor a little but it doesn't scream "beer" so don't be afraid to try it. Easy, delicious! I used three tails for 8 minutes and it was perfect.

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 15, 2005
Wow, this was sooooo good and you'd never even know it was turkey! I used half the cheese and since I don't like ketchup, used worchestershire sauce instead. I just sprinkled it over the top before I put the loaf in the oven. My daughter's only four months old but I'm sure she'll love this when she's old enough!

Roasted Chestnuts

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
This was really yummy! They were great right out of the oven. Yes, they're time consuming and my thumb was raw by the time I was done shelling them but hey, it's only once a year. They don't reheat well though - the next day the leftovers were pretty greasy.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
This is quite yummy as is, but I like it even more with grated parmesan cheese sprinkled on top one minute before it's finished cooking. My 7 year old eats this like it's candy! You seriously cannot imagine how good this is until you try it. You can play around with spice combinations too. Chili powder and garlic powder are both good on it too. Be SURE to line the cookie sheet. This seems to be the trick to getting it to crisp up nicely. You can try silver foil if you don't have parchment paper.

Gingered Chicken Breast

Reviewed: May 15, 2005
I felt like the marinade didn't make enough for all the chicken breasts so next time I'll probably double the ingredients for the sauce. But they turned out moist and lemony and were quite good! I'll probably add some herbs next time to give it a little more flavor.

Cajun Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2003
I tweaked this a bit and it was awesome. I don't like mustard so I left that out and I used Old Bay seasoning instead of cayenne pepper. I brought these to a party and they were gone within minutes.

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
We made this on Memorial Day over a campfire in a cast iron skillet, and it was really good!

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2011
I used gorgonzola and these were fantastic. I didn't need toothpicks either, just put them seam side down in the pan. So easy and sooooooo good!

Water Chestnuts Wrapped in Bacon

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
I really didn't like this at all. I love all the ingredients so I thought it would be fabulous, but it was just too weird. I felt like the flavors didn't mix well at all.

Key Lime Pie VIII

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2006
I brought this to my company picnic and I won a prize for best dessert! I used low-fat and fat free ingredients and it took all of 15 minutes to make. This is a fabulous dessert!

Chesapeake Bay Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 17, 2012
I thought this was awful. The vinegar taste was overpowering, nowhere near enough Bay seasoning to make it really taste New England-y. Didn't like it at all.

Dave's Low Country Boil

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Love this recipe! It's great because the way each ingredient goes in for a certain length of time makes it all cooked exactly perfectly. But 2 tbsp of Bay Seasoning? Puhlease! We used half a can.

Roasted Broccoli

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
This was inedible to me. It was ridiculously salty with only a pinch of salt added. I used twice as much broccoli as the recipe called for and the seasoning was still way too strong.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2011
I felt it was too soy sauce-y as is so I added another tablespoon or two of butter. Otherwise I thought it was quite yummy.

Dorm Room Cheesy Tuna and Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
Surprisingly good! I doubled the recipe and added a can of cream of chicken soup. I used chicken instead of tuna only because that's what I had on hand. I used one package of seasoning even though I doubled the recipe and that seemed just right. I also used cheddar because I find American cheese too waxy. My six year old loved it!

Over the Fire Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2011
We forgot to bring mushrooms and used all the bacon at breakfast (d'oh!) so I found this to be pretty bland without it. It was easy and interesting, but pretty blah so I will definitely try it again with the bacon and mushrooms next time.
