Tzatziki Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
Yummy. The only thing we did different was finely chop the cuke and skip the processing. Great with falafel and on fries.

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
Great gingerbread. Subbed olive oil for the butter and sliced some ripe pears that I layered on the bottom of the pan. Served with sweetened whipped cream. Yummy and the smell in the house was fantastic.

Really good and simple to prepare. My 3 year old gobbled them up. May make a cooked carrot fan out of me yet!

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
Great muffin recipe. Baked twice with minor changes, subbed half the AP flour with whole wheat, decreased the sugar slightly, added mini chocolate chips and some walnuts and baked in mini tins at 395 for 10 minutes. I have two happy little girls!

Layered Eggplant Hamburger Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
This was a great dish. I did alter it a bit, used ground turkey instead of beef and only one lb. since that is what I had. Bulked it up with finely chopped summer squash, I do this frequently to sneak extra veggies into the children. Also, rather than just parm. I sprinkled a 5-cheese blend on with mozz and provolone, again, because I had it to use up. This is a great way to use up eggplant and other veggies from summer's bounty. My kids really liked it too!

Salsa Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
Yum. Used the plastic bag toss method with a taco seasoning recipe from this site. Served with sour cream and guacamole, mexican rice from this site that I added sauted zucchini and pinto beans and steamed farm corn. Really good summer dinner. My 5 year old gobbled it up!

Baked Pasta Primavera Casserole

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
I found this when I was looking for something really quick and easy to make one night. It was really good, easy and more hearty than plain baked penne. I will keep this for those 'on the run' days.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
This was really good. Used some to marinate/grill portobellas too. My 5 year old couldn't eat enough of it! I will definitely make this again and try as fajitas. I can't wait to make a steak salad tomorrow with the leftovers.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
I upped the nutrition on these by substituting 1/4 cup garbanzo bean flour and 3/4 cup spelt flour for one of the cups of AP flour. Added a handful of chopped walnuts and pumpkin seeds and a sprinkle of flax meal. Also added some white chocolate and dark chocolate chips to entice two little girls. They gobbled them up and I smiled at all the nutrition they had.

Russian Mushroom and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2008
I've wanted a good potato soup recipe and I think I've found it! I made the mistake of using my slow-cooker and not decreasing the stock so next time I'll either modify the liquid or cook on the stove as directed. Even though it wasn't as thick as I think it was intended to be, the flavors were very comforting on one of the first very cold evenings in Upstate NY!

Slow Cooker Escalloped Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2008
We loved this recipe, even my 2 year old! Very comforting. I did reduce the butter to 1/2 a cup and am not sure how much broth/cooking liquid I used, just added until it was moist but not soggy. I also put the breasts in the cooker with some water and chicken base, s/p, fresh thyme sprigs and a splash of chardonnay for about 45 minutes before adding the stuffing mix on top. I used the liquid to moisten the stuffing and then added some more water/chicken base to the bread until moist. I also added fresh sage to the mix rather than dried and chopped some mushrooms for the stuffing mix, to hide for picky eaters. One more thing, I added a handful of dried currants to the stuffing, I was out of cranberries. The chicken was moist, flavorful and extremely tender. The stuffing was yummy too, just moist enough. I served with steamed green beans. I will definitely be making this again this winter.

Chicken and Summer Squash

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
This recipe surprised me. I found it looking through the daily photos and decided to try it to use some squash from our CSA and a package of chicken breasts. It was yummy. I did add some garlic and onion to the veggie saute and a few mushrooms that were floating around my fridge. Oh, and a splash of Chardonnay. I also had some leftover fire roasted diced tomatoes that I used rather than the fresh. It was very popular with my little girls too.

Grilled Salmon Steaks with Savory Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2008
This recipe surprised me. I really liked the sauce, and I usually don't like fruit based sauces. It had just enough tang to balance the sweetness and the honey did't overpower the taste of the blueberries. We had wild rice and chard with goat cheese and the combo was really fantastic. Even my husband enjoyed it and he isn't a salmon fan!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2008
I was a bit unsure of this recipe when I made it. I thought it was going to be a bit bland and boring. I was delighted when my 4 year old told me she loved it! My husband and I liked it also. I did make a few changes/additions. I made a half version with fewer layers. I used ground turkey, added some taco-like seasoning during the browning process, used green enchilada sauce instead of taco sauce and spread the beans on the tortillas. Great and easy recipe that I will make again.

Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2008
Really yummy recipe. My 2 and 4 year old daughters were loving it. I used summer squash and added some onion and garlic as well as half butter/half olive oil to brown. Added some parmesan to it just before adding the marinara. Lightly toasted the rolls and put a layer of mozz on the bottom and the top. Forgot to wrap in foil, just put in a pan and toasted, liked the toasted rolls. I served it with some jazzed up vegetarian baked beans and corn on the cobb for a three sisters/pure protein vegetarian dinner that everyone loved. Will definately be making again with all of the summer squash this season!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
These were really fun. I used half whole wheat flour and sprinkled half with cinnamon sugar. We had a rainy day and it was a fun activity for my 2 and 4 year old girls to help me roll them. I did have to sacrafice two pretzels, but they were busy with their dough for at least 45 minutes! They also enjoyed eating them for their snack.
