Cheesy Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
pretty tasty dish for having no meat in it. I added 1 tsp of cumin to the onions and only used 1/2 onion instead of the full onion the recipe called for. I really like this dish. I will have to try it again with different beans. I think black beans would be yummy.

Argentine Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2011
Super delicious! I've been looking for a good lentil recipe. I saved this one a couple years ago. Its a shame that I didn't try it until now!!! I didn't have 3 fresh tomatoes, so I tossed in some canned diced tomatoes I had sitting around...probably didn't add quite enough (12 ounces) to compensate for 3 tomatoes. Also I liked the suggestion to throw the carrots in with the lentils. The recipe didn't clarify whether to cook it uncovered or with the lid on. I chose to cook it uncovered for the first 20 mins. If I do it again, I will put the lid on the entire time, I think too much heat escaped. Also, I loved the suggestion to add some more spices, so I put 1/4 tsp of crushed red pepper, cumin, oregono, basil, 1 bay leaf, and a few rosemary springs. This turned out very savory!! It truly is way too easy for how delicious it is!! Having lived in Argentina for a while, I wonder about adding some spiced sausage (Argentine chorizo-not the Mexican kind) to the recipe and maybe some chunks of beef. The Argentine lentil soups/stews I had while I was there are some of the tastiest I've ever had. I wish there were more Argentine recipes on allrecipes.

Caramelized Pork Slices

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2011
This recipe is wonderful because of the ease! It is quick and has a pretty easy to fix. However, I wonder if there isn't something that could be added to give it a little pizaz. It wasn't bad, but i think that it could be improved to get beyond the blander side of things and create an impressive dish.

Dill Pickle Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
It was a bit salty. We didnt have onion salt so I used regular salt, but I reduced the salt to 3 tsp instead of the 4 it calls for. Still, I think it was a bit too salty.

Orange Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
I like how easy this was to make. I dont like how sweet it was. I cut out all the white flour and used 2.5 cups of whole wheat flour. I also added a little bit of extra orange juice and some orange zest. I'm glad I did. Next time I think I'll cut out some of the sugar or try using honey as a sweetner.

Maple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Its easy, I love that part. However, the bread was not really sweet at all. I did enjoy the sugar on top, but the majority of the bread was not sweet enough. maybe add just a little something to sweeten it next time. It was really easy!

Mom's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
I followed the suggestions that I could cut the butter in half. Other than that I followed the recipe to the T. The dough was too dry and they didn't flatten out while they cooked. I used 1 package of chocolate chips, which seemed to be a bit overkill. Next time, if I cut the butter in half I will also add applesauce to compensate. Also, I cooked them in 2 batches. The first batch I cooked for 10 mins. The 2nd batch I cooked for 12 mins. The 2nd batch was a little too dark on the bottom. Good luck!

Peanut Butter Vegetable Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
This recipe is phenomenal!!! I read the reviews before cooking it, but was still a bit nervous right before dropping the Peanut butter in the soup. It looked pretty good on its own. I did put the PB in and am so glad I did!! This is amazing. It makes this soup incredible. I did put a significant amount of pepper in at the end. Also, I added some cayenne pepper...not too much maybe 1/2 tsp...this keeps the soup feeling warm even when it starts to cool off....I think its a trick the restaurants use.
