Lentils And Spinach

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I was looking for a good recipe with lentils and I love spinach, but I dont love this recipe. This one had great reviews. I tried it...following the suggestions (only 1 onion) and even doubled the rest of the recipe. I threw it over some rice. The one onion alone added too much to the taste. It wasn't that great. I might suggest throwing some meat in w/ it, but thats just a guess I have because I dont like it enough to try that out. I wont be making this one again.

Moroccan Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
Phenomenal! love these potatoes. I went on a potatoe testing kick tonight and made 4 different types of mashed potatoes. This was by far the shocker!! Love it. It tastes wonderful. Not quite as fluffy as your traditional mashed potatoes, but the taste, Wow! And it wasn't overpowering like a couple other recipies we tried. Try em, you'll love it.

Better Cheddar Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Quick easy and super tasty. I added a lil extra garlic salt and cayanne pepper, about 1.5X the portions alloted. It was wonderful. 40 mins in the over, and it was super good! a lil mushy on the bottom, but thats to be expected

Tomato-Curry Lentil Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
Pretty good stew. It could use a lil something more to make it amazing! I did omit the celery and added carrots. I would have enjoyed a bit more creamy taste....I added a 1/4 cup milk at the end, but it didn't cream up as much as I would have enjoyed. I think that next time I will add some shredded chicken or ground beef. I also think that adding some saigon cinnamon would enhance the flavors. Pretty good recipe though.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
