Cabbage Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
These sloppy joes were really tasty. I took the advice of others and reduced the brown sugar to 1 Tablespoon, the ketchup to 3/4 cup, and omitted the lemon. The sauce was sweet and tangy without being too much. I also used turkey instead of beef and added extra veggies (2+ cups of cabbage, a large onion, 2 celery stalks, and 2 shredded carrots) and it still came out delicious.

Joanne's Super Hero Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
The sandwich lasted several days without getting soggy. My only complaints are that it ended up a little too salty for my taste (Next time I will use low sodium turkey breast and cut back on the meat) and that the garlic intensified over time leaving me with some serious garlic breath.

Touch of Spring Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
Strawberries are a very wet fruit and in a light muffin like this one, they made wet globby spots with a texture similar to unkcooked batter. I had several people sample these and all agreed that the flavor was ok, but the texture was not good. If I make these again, I will use only rhubarb (chopped small to avoid huge globs) and serve them with strawberry jam.

Chocolate Cake V

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
I've been looking for a milk-free chocolate cake recipe (my boyfriend is lactose intolerant) and I'm so glad I tried this one! The recipe is really easy and the cake is moist, fluffy, and very chocolaty. I halved the recipe for a trial batch and it made 18 cupcakes. I cooked them for about 18-20 minutes and they are delicious. I will definitely make this recipe again.

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
The flavor in this recipe is very good, but the rice turned out mushy and overcooked. Perhaps the cooking time is too long for someone cooking at sea level? I've had success with Mexican Rice II from this site (shorter cooking time and less liquid) so I'll probably stick with it in the future.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
I made this bread as written. It is delicious but VERY sweet. In the future, I will reduce the sugar to 2 cups. Also, try throwing in a few dark chocolate chips. I put about 1/3 cup of semisweet chocolate chips into one of the loaves and it was amazing!

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
Edible, but not delicious. I love balsamic, but the flavor in this dish just wasn't very good. I followed the directions exactly and the end result was unexpectedly bitter. Strong vinegar flavor, strong oregano flavor and dried out chicken. If I do try making this again, I will make sure to use top notch vinegar as one reviewer suggested. I will also cut back on the spices (especially the oregano). Finally, I will check the chicken after 10 minutes of cooking since the breasts were overcooked at 15. Sorry I can't rave about this recipe. I'm glad so many others have enjoyed it.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
Good bread. As written, this recipe is pretty tasty, although it is very sweet as other reviewers have mentioned. I've made it with 1 cup of the flour replaced with whole wheat, 1/4 of the oil replaced with applesauce, and the sugar reduced by 1/4 cup. Made this way, the bread is still very sweet and moist. Also, this recipe works fine with a pint (2 cups) of frozen blueberries instead of fresh. Finally, this bread freezes well. Once the bread has completely cooled, slice it into thick pieces and freeze in a ziplock bag. Pull one slice out at a time and warm it in a toaster oven for an easy breakfast. It tastes just as good as when it came out of the oven the first time!

Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
This recipe is delicious as written, but it's also a great base for variations. My favorite way to make this soup is with link andouille sausage browned and sliced into coins. I've also tried red potatoes instead of pasta, chard instead of cabbage, and so forth. This soup is always delicious! As other reviewers have mentioned, the texture the following day is much better if the pasta is cooked separately and added to each bowl when serving.

Mystery Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Ugh. I did not care for this cake. No one would eat it. Be warned that the beet taste is pretty strong. I love beets, but their earthy flavor was unpleasant in this recipe. If you do try this recipe, make sure to mash the beets really, really well. There were a few small pieces of beet in my cake that got chewy and tough after baking.

Potato Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Delicious! I make this recipe at least once a month now. This curry is easy and makes a great side dish for spicy tomato curries. If you are sensitive to spicy foods, use a little less cayenne than the recipe calls for. To my taste buds, this recipe isn't spicy at all, but I had a friend over for dinner who thought it was too much.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Roasted cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables. Adding some garlic and parmesan makes it that much better. Sometimes when I make this recipe, I roast some cherry tomatoes as well. The combination of red tomatoes, green parsley and white cauliflower is gorgeous on the dinner plate.

Chocolate Syrup

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
This was pretty good. It intensely dark chocolatey, so a little goes a long way. This recipe make a lot, so unless you use gobs of chocolate syrup on a regular basis, I'd suggest scaling down the recipe.

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Historically, I have not had great success with pancakes, but these turn out great every time! I use lactose free milk and canola oil instead of butter to make these lactose-free. Brush a little oil onto the skillet before pouring each batch of pancake batter. This way every pancake will be lightly browned with crispy edges and fluffy interiors. Yum!

Honey Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
This cake is good, but not great. It is VERY sweet and a little plain. My boyfriend and I both thought it would go well with a fruit compote if the cake itself was less sweet. One nice thing about the cake is that the texture actually improved the next day.

Homemade Tomato Sauce II

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
This recipe is delicious exactly as written. I make it almost weekly during the winter. The sauce also makes a great base for additions. I especially enjoy adding hot italian sausage. Mmm.

Salmon with Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Good flavor and pretty easy. The fish did get a little bit too cooked since I had watery tomatoes that needed to cook down. In the future, I'll remove the salmon from the pan before adding the tomatoes. Once the tomatoes are cooked down enough, I'll add the salmon back in to finish cooking. I'll make this one again.

Simple Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2011
This recipe is great! I halved the recipe, but I'll make the full batch next time. I used a little less sugar and soy sauce than the recipe called for — 2T brown sugar and 1T soy sauce for the half batch.

Terrific Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011

Authentic Cincinnati Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
I'd never heard of Cincinnati chili before I saw this recipe. While it was cooking, I have to admit I was skeptical. It smelled like a combination between apple pie and beef. As it turns out, the finished product is fantastic! I have no idea if the recipe is 'authentic' but I do know that it is absolutely delicious.
