German Leek and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
This is ok. Like another reviewer said, it was kind of like runny mashed potatoes. The flavor was just all around mild.

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2007
YUM! This was so good and exactly what I was looking for! I did make some changes, so it would be exactly like the black bean soup that I had in mind. I added garlic cloves, an onion, carrots, and a can of tomatoes. I also decreased the spicy spices just a tad. And I pureed the whole thing with my immersion blender. This one will be made again and again!!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
I found this recipe to be just so-so. There was nothing wrong with it, really, it was just a little bland and I've made better Asian chicken using "easiest teryaki marinade ever", "amber's sesame chicken" and "almond chicken stir fry" recipes off of this site.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2007
This was very good and got good reviews when I served it. However, I thought it was too creamy. Next time I make it I will probably only use 1/2 the sour cream. The other changes I made were to use 1 can of cheddar soup and 1 can of potato. I also omitted the parmesan and topped the casserole instead with more cheddar. Also, I added a red pepper and an onion. It was very good!

Spinach and Feta Pita Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2007
This was so good and easy! The pesto is such a big part of it that you need to make sure you buy good pesto. I actually couldn't find the sundried tomato pesto so I used regular basil pesto and topped my pizza with sundried tomatoes instead. You can use whatever toppings you want on here. I agree with other reviewers that it is a little light. I used some leftover turkey on one of mine. I also folded it in half so it was more of a sandwich. My husband really liked it too. This is a great meal to have if your family eats at different times. Each person can fix their pita to their liking and pop it into the toaster oven when they are ready!

Fettuccine with Sweet Pepper-Cayenne Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This was a really good, really fast dish. I used a jar of roasted red peppers and also added asparagus and toasted walnuts. I'll definitely be making it again! mmmm!

Asparagus Angel Hair Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2007
When my husband first pitched this recipe to me, I turned it down because it just sounded weird. But we made it anyway and it is VERY good! I didn't use dill (because I didn't have any). Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly and we both really enjoyed it.

Marinated Chicken Pita Sandwich

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
This was just ok to me. The chicken didn't have quite enough flavor. I would recommend dumping out the marinade before cooking if you like your chicken browned. Otherwise it sort of poaches in the extra marinade. I would also recommend making tzatziki (sp?) instead of just using plain yogurt.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
YUM! I love this recipe! After reading some of the other reviews, I did add a little hot sauce and some dried basil. But mmmmmm, this was so tasty! I look forward to making it again!

Green Bean Sesame Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
This didn't quite have enough flavor for me. I tasted the dressing before it went on the green beans, and it was pretty good, but there wasn't enough of it. If I make it again, I'll double the dressing. Also, I did use some soy sauce in place of the salt.

Sophie's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
I don't do a lot of baking, so I don't have a lot to compare this to...it is a really easy recipe and extremely tasty!! I didn't make any changes - everyone loved it! One thing that I occasionally do when making muffins is substitute half of the oil with applesauce. It doesn't really change the flavor/texture but lightens it up a bit. However, this bread is fabulous as is!

Mint Tea Punch

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
This is a really good tea/punch recipe. I would definitely advise making it a day ahead of time - when I had a glass for myself after making it, I didn't really like it. The next day, I liked it much better, and it received rave reviews at a baby shower. I did use mint tea instead of tea + mint leaves, just because it seemed a little easier. I used store-bought OJ, but next time, I might squeeze it myself because I think it would taste a little fresher. Everyone really enjoyed it. For a twist, I wonder how it would be with lemon sparkling water.

Quick Artichoke Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
I made this for a baby shower and it got rave reviews! I'm making it again next week for a wedding shower, and I will certainly make it for my own family as well. I think that the only slight changes that I made were to add some toasted pine nuts and a little bit of red wine vinegar. It is so easy, since the dressing is really just the artichoke "juice". It is also very versatile - you could use whatever veggies you wanted and you could add chicken or shrimp to make it more of a main meal for those who eat meat. I definitely recommend this one!

Broccoli and Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
This was very, very good! I made it for a potluck and it got great reviews. The leftovers were just as good!! I did add some dried herbs, as some other reviewers suggested. Next time I think I'll leave off the cracker crumbs.

Cashew Avocado Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2007
This was alright, but there was something missing. I don't know if we'll make it again. My husband loves chicken salad, so he is always on the quest for the perfect recipe.

Spanakopita II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
SO GOOD! This actually tasted better than the spanakopita I get in our local restaurant. The filling is SO delicious, but I HATE working with phyllo dough (not a fault of the recipe). I may try this recipe with puff pastry, or even the phyllo dough little shells. But the filling is DEFINITELY a keeper. (Oh yeah, I did NOT use the dill, because I didn't think it fit.)

Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2007
This was just alright. It was very easy to make, but it was just so so. I probably won't make it again, unless I just want something easy that I don't care if anyone is impressed. Not bad, just average.

Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2007
My mom actually has been making these muffins for years with the exact same recipe. It is one of my favorite foods ever! I highly recommend these muffins for a special (or everyday) breakfast, or just to have around for snacking! mmmmm!

Fruit and Vegetable Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2007
This is surprizingly very, very good! I was skeptical at first, but like trying new things. And I'm glad I did! I will say that you should definitely let it cook for the recommended 15-20 minutes so that the flavors can cook together. I tasted it early on, and it wasn't very good. I followed the recipe almost exactly. The only changes I made were: I used less brown sugar, just because I didn't have enough; I didn't use corn starch, because I didn't think it needed it; I used an entire onion; I used the whole can of sauerkraut. If you like sauerkraut, I would recommend this recipe!

Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2007
This is really good! I'd never made creamed spinach before, so I was really excited with how this turned out. It was a spur of the moment decision to make this, and I didn't have the exact ingredients, but I was able to follow the recipe pretty closely. The only real difference was that I used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of whole milk. I'll definitely be making this again!
