Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: May 27, 2014
This is a great base recipe for a delicious soup. I halved the chili powder so it wouldn't taste like chili, used a cup of salsa fresca instead of tomato past, added 1 tsp turmeric, and a stalk of celery and a handful of chopped baby beets. We used yogurt instead of lemon juice. SO GOOD and freezes well!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
Double the roux sauce and add 1/4 tsp garlic salt. We used a variety of veggies and only a top crust. Very yummy!

Apricot Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2014
This is a great recipe, even without modifications. I used 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 white sugar because our apricots are quite tart. I used partially thawed fruit and baked it for 70 minutes--perfect!

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2014
This granola is the best--not overly cinnamony, not overly sweet. I make it gluten free by swapping wheat germ for coconut flakes and/or extra oat bran. I also swap out the walnuts for pumpkin seeds sometimes. It's so good with yogurt and fruit as a parfait or just eaten dry as a snack at work.

'Chinese Buffet' Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2013
Easy and delicious. I made it ahead of time to reheat for dinner so I only cooked the beans for an extra 4 minutes after adding the sauce ingredients. It reheated perfectly!

Baker's Secret Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Excellent! I was almost deterred by the long list of ingredients but it's TOTALLY WORTH IT. The fats balance nicely for the perfect combination of flaky/crispy/chewy and it isn't overly buttery tasting (or worse, like straight up shortening).

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013

Sugar Cookie Frosting

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2013
I used half butter and half shortening and it was still 'wet' enough after 30 minutes to add sprinkles. Add the milk/vanilla liquid slowly because you may not need it all, depending on how spreadable you want the frosting.

Swedish Pepparkakor Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2013
This cake was okay--it needs salt, maybe 1/2 teaspoon. It wasn't remarkable in any way for us, just tasted like a spiced cookie but with the texture of a quick bread. It took twice as long to bake in my oven.

Oriental Cold Noodle Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2012
Delicious base recipe! I cooked 1/2 pound angel hair noodles and tossed with 1/2 the dressing with 1tsp minced ginger added. Later in the week I added 1T peanut butter to the remainder of the dressing for another, different meal.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
Delicious, soft bread! I swapped out 1.5 cups of the flour for whole wheat and half the white sugar for brown. A bit of lemon zest and almonds make it so good.

Slow Cooker Root Vegetable Tagine

Reviewed: May 30, 2012
Quite good and very adaptable. It is a great starting point for a tagine if you have lots of firm veggies to use up (I used parsnips, turnips, carrots, and spaghetti squash--any winter squash or potatoes would also be good). I cooked at 350F for an hour in the oven and it was perfect. I double the seasonings, as suggested by others. And I used sun dried tomatoes and raisins instead of apricots (I'm sure any dried fruit will be great). I also thought it could you a sprinkle of salt and a squeeze of lemon after cooking.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
Classic and delicious. Mine oozed a little but I think I should have cooked the lemon mixture a little longer.

Little Mickey's Favorite Cheesecake

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
Easy and delicious! Followed other reviewers' recommendations of letting them rise on squares of waxed paper and gently dumping them into the oil (excellent trick). My thermometer only goes to 350F and my donuts got quite dark, fast, so I think the oil was too hot. But despite their dark hue, they were AMAZING. Eat them within a few hours because they weren't so good later that day.

Chicken Satay with Homemade Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
The flavor was great, but we didn't like the chunky texture of the sauce. Next time I'll swap out the shallots for a bit of onion powder and will use smooth PB.

Pork Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2012
Really tasty! Next time I'll triple the recipe and invite some friends over to help assemble them. They freeze well so we can all share the dumplings to take home.
