Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2013
I made this with apples and pears that I needed to use up. I omitted the sugar and doubled the cinnamon. The only change I would have made is to lessen the water to 1/3 cup. Delicious!

Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
This recipe was delicious! I am glad that I followed the advice of some of the other reviewers and cut the cayenne pepper in half or I wouldn't have enjoyed eating this at all (it would have been way too spicy for my family and I). I used coconut milk instead of heavy cream and it was perfect. Those are the only changes I made. Will definitely make this again. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
Delicious! I did change a couple of things: left out the onion and mushrooms (kids don't like them). I used 4oz of heavy cream, 1 cup of half & half, and 1 1/2 cups of 2% milk; 1 heaping tbsp of cornstarch - mixed it together. My sauce thickened perfectly and I saved some fat & calories :) I did use a 12" skillet pan to make the chicken and sauce. My daughters asked for this to be added to our dinner menu :) Thank you for a fabulous and easy recipe!

Cranberry Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
Delicious pie with a bit of personal tweaking :) I halved the sugar to 1 cup total (I used white, but a combo of white/brown would have been fine too); I prefer my fruit pies to be more fresh, natural tasting with less sugar. I added only 2 tbsp of orange juice and a dash of lemon juice. I omitted the cornstarch and used 1/3 cup of flour plus additional spices (to taste) to mix in with the cranberries and apple slices. Baked according to directions and my pie came out delicious and thick on the inside. Thank you for a great pie recipe :)

French Spring Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
This is a fantastic, flavorful, light soup! Only changes made: used all chicken broth vs water, left out the potatoes (didn't have any on hand), and used half-n-half instead of heavy cream (didn't have any in the fridge). Only used 3 tsps sea salt and about 1 tsp of Herbs de Provence. Thank you for a delicious recipe!

Butternut Squash Risotto

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
Delicious! I doubled the recipe and added a few cloves of garlic. I omitted with wine because I didn't have any and used water instead. Thanks for a great squash recipe :)

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
This recipe is delicious! I didn't change anything about the ingredients. All I did was make it by hand since I don't own a bread machine. Baked at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes. YUM!

Yellow Cake Made from Scratch

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
I made this cake today and it is great! It is not as yellow as a 4 to 6 egg cake, but the taste is delicious! I used real butter vs shortening, and used 1 cup 00 italian flour and 1 cup all purpose (finer crumb, tender texture). I decreased the baking powder to 3 tsp and decreased the salt to 1/4 tsp (these are personal preferences). This is my go to cake recipe. My entire family loved it! UPDATE: I have made this cake 6 times since my original review and have found the following works best: room temp eggs, real butter straight from the fridge, room temp milk, sift the two flours together w/ the baking powder. cream the butter/sugar on med-high, add all 3 eggs at the same time and mix on the highest speed you have for 2 minutes, cut the speed all the way back to the lowest speed you have and just add the flour blend and milk at the same time. beat on the lowest speed until mixed (do not over mix). pour into prepped pan and bake ( I average 30 min...sometimes longer, sometimes less). This is my go to cake!

Creamy Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
This is just an average chocolate frosting. I think it tastes better as it ages. Also, the butter quantity is off for my liking. I remade using 1 cup of butter and it was much better.

Vegetable Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Made this recipe for dinner tonight and LOVE it! I followed the basic recipe except I didn't have any fresh mushrooms or onion on hand so I left them out. I did chop the veggies and placed them in a steam bag with a tbsp of olive oil and some southwestern seasoning. Steamed the veggies for 3 1/2 minutes in the microwave, then placed steamed veggies on tortillas with the cheese. I used a stove top grill pan with grill press to make these and they came out perfect! Great taste, great texture and very satisfying! Thank you for a wonderful recipe. This is making the dinner/lunch rotation.

Peanut Butter Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
I doubled the recipe and uses a Pampered Chef large bar stone to bake. My husband and the neighbors loved them! The only thing I did different was to double the peanut butter in the icing, as written I thought it tasted too much like confectioner's sugar.

Vintage Lemonade

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
My daughters and I love this recipe! How can you go wrong with a classic?....You can't! Here are the changes I made: I used 9 lemons, 1 1/2 cups of sugar, and 1 1/2 quarts of water. I juiced the lemons first and then just added the juiced rinds to a bowl. Other than that...followed exactly. This is my only Lemonade recipe that I will use from now on!

Chocolate Cream Pudding

Reviewed: May 8, 2011
Fabulous recipe! When I make homemade pudding and custards, I add the milk and chocolate to the saucepan first, set my electric range temp to level 3 and stir until the chocolate chunks begin to melt. Then I add the sugar, cornstarch, salt and continue to stir until the the chocolate chunks are completely dissolved. Because the temperature of the mixture is still relatively low, I whip the egg yolks (which have been sitting out on my counter the whole time and should be close to room temperature); and add them directly to the saucepan. Then I begin to stir for about 5 minutes on level 3 heat to ensure the egg yolks are mixed in and no clumping forms. After that, I turn the heat up to level 5 and stir until the mixture thickens to my desired thickness. Remove from heat, add the butter and vanilla and continue to whisk. I should have added that I make pudding using a whisk because it ensures zero clumping. It takes a bit longer to make pudding/custard this way but I've never had it clump. Once I pour the pudding into the container(s), I allow it to cool on my counter for about 1 hour and then refrigerate it. You'll still get a pudding skin, but it's very minimal. GREAT recipe! Thank you!

Pasta with Asparagus

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
I am rating this recipe as a 5 even though I did add 2 cloves of crushed garlic, 2 tbsp olive oil vs. 1 tbsp, and fresh, cut portabella mushrooms. This was easy and delicious and can be seasoned/prepped to taste. Delicious!

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
the only change I made to the batter was to use less nutmeg. I used just under 1/2 tsp. The batter tasted good prior to baking. Used a Pampered Chef mini muffin pan, made 24. Put about 3/4 TBS of batter in each well. Used confectioner's sugar, chocolate ganache, and cinnamon/sugar to coat muffins. it was alright, but won't make again.

Italian Creme Layer Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
This cake recipe is okay. With that being said, I will not make this recipe again simply because of the 1 1/2 cups of fat (butter, oil, shortening). I will stick with my standard recipe which calls for 1 cup of salted butter. I was a little worried about the taste/density of this cake when I popped the cakes out of the baking pans and an oily sheen was noticeable on the cakes and my hands. Taste is good. The icing portion I tweaked to make my own. I used 1 cup butter, 8oz cream cheese, 3 cups confectioner's sugar, 2 tsp vanilla, 1 tbsp of milk and left the pecans out...used them to decorate with after. All in all I prefer my usual recipe, but as with every recipe it's all about personal preference.

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
This recipe is delicious and hearty. I made this on the stove top vs. the crock pot. The ingredient changes I made are as follows: 1. left out the celery (only because I didn't have any in my fridge and I didn't feel like going to the grocery store to get it) 2. I used 3 green onions 3. I used tomato puree vs tomato sauce 4. I used 2 cups of lentils (that's what I had in the pantry) 5. I upped the water to 5 cups My daughters asked for this soup to make our dinner rotations. Thanks!

Mediterranean Linguine with Basil and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
delicious (and light, after I scaled it back to 1 portion size) I made 2 oz serving of spaghetti (that's the pasta I had on hand) and cooked it according to the directions. While it was cooking, in a separate prep bowl I tossed the 8 grape tomatoes - sliced, 1 tbsp olive oil, 1 crushed garlic clove, 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes, a 1/2 tsp of dried basil (out of fresh), and 1/4 tsp of an Italian seasoning blend. I let that mixture sit until the spaghetti was done. I drained the pasta and added the seasoned tomatoes directly. Tossed together and added 3 tbsp of freshly grated Parmesan cheese. I omitted the red wine vinegar since I am not partial to it. GREAT recipe! Thank you!
