Roasted Okra

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2015
This was the first time I ever prepared/ate Okra. It will definitely be on the menu often now, as long as I can find it at the store. It is so yummy!! Rather than measure salt and pepper, I just sprinkled some on once they were in the pan. You don't need much salt, as even with what I thought was a light salting, the okra tasted a bit salty. I did feel it needed another flavor, so next time I will add some garlic I think. Per others' suggestions I roasted the okra longer. I roasted it for 35 minutes, turning them over halfway through. They were a light brown and not slimy at all, which was what I was concerned about. Definitely a keeper recipe. I am hoping I can get the grandchildren to try it. I think they will like it, since Okra does not have a strong flavor/taste.

Butter-Roasted Cauliflower

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2015
Latest research is indicating it is not healthy to heat olive oil, so I was eager to try this recipe. I followed it to the "T". It was just okay for us. If you season it up with some spices, I think it could be a 4-5 star recipe. As written, it is simply too plain. I usually add garlic, onion and then either basil or thyme when I roast veggies. I missed not having the extra flavors. I think next time I will put crushed garlic in the butter and heat it on low for awhile before brushing it on the cauliflower. Cooking time was spot on!! Worth a try with adjustments you think would appeal to you.

Spinach Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2014
Very easy recipe to put together. The result is a quick, tasty and nutritious soup. I did find I had to cook it longer in order to get the lentils as soft as like them. However, I was using larger than usual lentils. I think next time i make it I will add some garlic to it. Definitely will make again.

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2014
I am a vegetarian, but made this for my husband. He said he would give it a 4.5 star rating. I followed it close enough to rate it. I used stew meat as that is all I had on hand. I also used fresh mushrooms and cooked them with the onions. Sorry, but after going through all that trouble to make stroganoff from scratch, I can't fathom using canned mushrooms. I never buy them. I also use bouillon instead of condensed beef broth, as I never buy that either. This recipe smelled awesome as I was cooking it. Like others, I chose to remove the meat, onions and in my case mushrooms before adding the flour and broth. Next time I would actually just use one to two TB of butter to brown the meat and then add the rest of the butter after taking the meat out of the pan. My husband was impressed and said this would be a good recipe for company. Thanks for sharing.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
I figured I would like this recipe, but I actually LOVED IT!! I made the full marinade recipe for just two portbellos. I ended up using all the marinade. The only other change I made to the recipe was to use swiss cheese instead of provolone as that is all I had on hand. I think any cheese one likes would work for this recipe. I will making this recipe often. So glad I tried it.

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2014
This is the best bean burger recipe i have made so far. These were easy to prepare, easy to cook, and very tasty. Seasoning and spices can be adjusted to personal tastes. I do skip the hot sauce. Other than that, I followed the recipe as written.

Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2014
I just bought my first food processor ever and this was the first recipe I tried with it. This was awesome. Only change was I subbed whipped cream cheese for the regular as that is all I had. Since it was whipped, I used 2 Tablespoons instead of the one. The mixture did cool a bit more than I would have liked, but that is to be expected. Will definitely make again!!

Refreshing Cucumber Watermelon Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2014
I gave this a four star because I did not care for it, but my guests really enjoyed it and happily took the leftovers home. The only change I made was to skip the oil. I am sorry, but I could not put oil on watermelon ;-). I am not sure why I didn't like this as I do like all the ingredients in it. My guests found it very refreshing, but for me there was something missing. I don't think I will try this again.

Kabob Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2014
This was a big hit at a recent barbecue. We used it to marinate tenderloin we grilled. Everyone thought it was awesome!! I followed the recipe as written except I used less Worcestershire sauce. A quarter cup seemed to much for our tastes. We did marinate the meat overnight.

Irish Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
This recipe took a bit of prep work, but it was well worth it according to my DH. I was planning on using cheddar cheese in the potatoes, but surprisingly I found the Dubliner Cheese at Trader Joe's. I wanted to keep the recipe as close as possible to what was submitted. I did use ground beef and skipped the cayenne pepper. Other than that I made it as listed. This is going into my recipe file and will be my go to recipe for Shepherd's Pie from now on.

Cheeseburger Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2013
My husband really enjoyed this soup. I have a corn chowder recipe with meatballs that uses cheese whiz. I have been trying to find a recipe using real cheese. This fits the bill well and I don't have to make meatballs. The only changes I made were to double the ground beef and I halved the potatoes and used corn for the other half. My husband thought adding some green beans would also be a nice addition. This is not a healthy soup and I will not make it often, but I know it will be a nice comfort food when the need arises.

Dad's Leftover Turkey Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2013
I gave this recipe to my DIL and she tried it with the leftover meat from Thanksgiving. It was easy to throw together and it was a BIG HIT!!! We thought there would be leftovers for the next day, but that was not the case at all. The men just kept taking a little more and a little more until it was gone. Make sure to let the recipe set for awhile after you take it out of the oven. We did not have a problem with it being too runny. Just perfect!!!

Roasted Green Beans

Reviewed: May 9, 2013
Simple and easy recipe. I find I need to cook longer than the 20-25 minutes suggested. Forty five minutes seems to work better. Sometimes I also add onions and carrots. It is a nice combo for some variety.

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2013
I have made this recipe twice. Once exactly as written and it was good. I am not one who is going to say it was the best chocolate icing I ever had, but it is a very easy to make recipe and it does come out very creamy. The second time I made it I used more cocoa (thought it was too sweet the first time), used whole milk, (I didn't have evaporated), and did not sift the flour and cocoa. Not sifting did not seem to have any effect on the smoothness or creaminess of this icing. This is a keeper, that is for sure.

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2013
Absolutely Awesome!!! Loved it. I never expected to enjoy this dish as much as I did. I get a box of organic fruits and veggies delivered every other week. Yesterday there was a bunch of chard, which I don't normally cook with. I came on All Recipes and looked up recipes and decided on this one. I used veggie broth instead of wine and did add some cannellini beans to make it more substantial.Just before serving I added some fresh ground pepper. When my DH tried it and liked it, I knew I had a winner on my hands. Will definitely be making again!!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
This is a great recipe, but I assemble a bit differently. Typically I double or triple this recipe. I assemble with three layers and do not add the cheese to the cream sauce. I layer a third of the potatoes, sauce, chopped onion (rather than rings) and sprinkle with sharp grated cheddar cheese. I repeat with a second layer of potatoes. Lastly I place the third layer of potatoes on top and pour the remaining sauce on top of the potatoes. Then I shave some butter and dot the top layer with the butter. I use between 1-3 Tablespoons of butter, depending how many potatoes I have made used in the recipe. We prefer using redskins to russets. This recipe is a hit at our Easter and Christmas dinners.

Quinoa with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
I made this recipe as is except for using a 10 oz. package of mushrooms. When completed I took half of the mixture and added fresh spinach and cooked until it was wilted. The other half I left alone. I am surprised this recipe gets four stores as written. It is a very bland recipe. I would definitely add double the mushrooms and play around with some herbs. If you like plain foods without spices, you will probably like this. If you like more flavor, this recipe will probably not cut it for you. The half with the spinach was definitely better, but it still needed some other flavors to spice it up a bit. For those saying the mixture was too soupy, you need to cook the quinoa and chicken broth longer. I cooked mine for 20 minutes and it was perfect.

Quinoa Almond Pilaf

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2013
This is a great quinoa recipe, and simple to prepare. I loved it!!! It is an easy recipe to add or subtract ingredients according to your likes and dislikes. I didn't have raisins so skipped those. I could tell by the seasonings amounts that I would want more so I upped them to 1/2 tsp each except the salt. Probably could use even more. I didn't even add salt except with the quinoa and will decrease the salt the next time I make this. I decreased the olive oil to 1 tablespoon and that was plenty. I am trying to add more G-Bomb veggies to my diet, so I added some fresh spinach and mushrooms!! I recommend adding more tomatoes. I think this recipe definitely needs something green to make it look more appealing. The spinach did the trick! I will surely be making this again. Thanks Ann for a great recipe!!!

Honey Roasted Carrots

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
Just didn't enjoy this recipe. Followed the recipe as written, but we did not find this suited our taste buds. I prefer roasting carrots without the honey and that way you taste the natural sweetness of the carrots. The honey really masks the natural sweetness.

Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
This was a hit. Did not have Swiss so used additional cheddar. Skipped the onion because of children eating it. Will make again. No need for additional salt if using the processed cheese food. That will add all the salt you need. Very easy and tasty recipe.
