Fabulous Zucchini Grinders

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
These really do live up to the great reviews! I did follow the tips of others...but they pretty much were the same as the main recipe. I roasted 2 zucchinis (1 shredded, 1 cubed) at 400 degrees for 30 minutes in some olive oil, red pepper flakes, and minced garlic...then dumped the marinara on top and mixed it all together in the pan. I put a handful of shredded mozzarella on the buns first, then put the zucchini mix on top. I had no problem with soggy buns, but next time, I would like there to be more crunch, so I'll toast the buns first. I'll probably follow some other reviews as well by adding mushrooms, onions, and olives. Yum!

Kaese Spaetzle

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2010
This is a GREAT recipe, both easy and tasty. I would recommend using a potato ricer or spatzle maker if you can get your hands on one because the dough is very sticky. I used an Oxo potato ricer I bought on amazon.com and it was super easy...you can also choose to make long or short strands by continuously pushing dough through or shaking it until the dough drops. This recipe makes about a 2 quart casserole dish amount...plenty for 4. I cooked the onion while boiling the dough to save time. The dough cooks very quickly, almost immediately. Next time, I will cut the butter in half, it was too much. After finishing the dough, I added it into the pan with the onions to crisp everything up a bit. Then I added 1 cup of shredded swiss cheese and let that cook another minute. I then transfered everything into a 2 qt casserole dish, topped with the remaining cheese and covered until serving. This dish would be excellent as a side, but tonight it was the main dish, so I threw on some chopped chives and a few pieces of Quorn Chickin Nuggets (I'm vegetarian, but any meat or meat substitute would be good). I love this recipe though because it is easy to change for a different taste...like change the nutmeg for curry or cayenne pepper. Also, this dough recipe is great for a "funnel cake" type dessert if you crisp up the dough after boiling and drizzle chocolate or caramel sauce over or fruit. Yum!

Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
I made these tonight and although they tasted okay, they were really greasy from the shortening. Still searching for another recipe, but with a few changes, this one could be a lot better...especially decreasing the shortening.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I can't say that I was happy with the turn out of these cookies, but I really was excited to make them. I doubled the recipe (2 cups sugar, 2 cups peanut butter, and 2 eggs). For the first batch, I pressed them with forks and when I pulled them out, they had flatened completely and were still gooey after 15 min. For the second batch, I put them in a mini cupcake pan and that seemed to help. Both batches may not look great, but they look edible. I did try them and I have to say that there is way too much sugar in them...to the point that I feel like I'm just eating a spoonful of sugar. I want to try this recipe again, but will definately cut the sugar in half and beat the eggs and sugar together first. I do live in Colorado, so the altitude, minus flour, may have given me a bit of trouble.

Cheesy Ranch Potato Bake

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2009
I loved this recipe, but wanted to make it a main dish for dinner, so I changed it a little. I lessened the chili powder to 1 1/2 teaspoons and added 1/4 teaspoon paprika. I also added 2 teaspoons garlic. I omitted all the butter, but added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Omega-3 oil (nutritious and prevents any sticking). After cooking the potatoes, I used Annie Cowgirl Ranch Dressing and added 1 package of Lightlife's Smart Ground Veggie Protein. Turned out great. Next time, I may add some jalapenos or hot sauce and try fat free cheese.

Rhubarb Cheesecake

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
Loved this recipe. I made sure to wrap my pan with foil to prevent leaking. I added 1/4 cup chopped pecans to the crust mixture. Used only 1 egg and 1 egg white. Took 55 minutes to finish baking. After cooling, I refridgerated it overnight and put the sour cream frosting on the next day. Garnished with sliced strawberries...so DELICIOUS!

Potato and Bean Enchiladas

Reviewed: May 17, 2009
This is a GREAT vegetarian Mexican dish! I did follow other reviews and changed it up just for my own taste although the original recipe sounds just as good. I decided to make it casserole style, layering it as follows: sauce, tortillas, bean/potatoes mix, sauce, cheese, tortillas, sauce, cheese. I ended up cooking the potatoes for about 50 minutes until they were tender and browned. I added a diced haberno pepper to the tomatillos/onion mix (making this green sauce is so worth it and better than store bought!). I used about 8 small flour tortillas and tore them into pieces. I had leftover homemade refried beans with jalapenos that I used and have to admit that I think their consistency really held the dish together better than regular pinto beans would have (I used a recipe from The Pioneer Woman's website). I used a 10 oz wheel of queso fresco and added 6 oz of cubed pepper jack cheese. Used a 9x13 dish that I covered and baked for 30 minutes. So delicious and even better the 2nd day as leftovers. This will be a staple in my household from now on!

Easy Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
I have been making enchiladas for years now from this recipe I found in a magazine while I was in collage. This is the closest to it. They are a great hit for feeding a crowd...and buy some aluminun pans from the store so clean up is super easy too. I boil the chicken and then shred it with two forks. I also add a can of black beans and a can of green chiles. The best thing about this recipe is you can always add or subtract things to your tastes...I being vegetarian will make a few for me that have spinach in them. Sometimes I add jalapenos and onions. Thanks for posting this!

Enchilada Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2009
Love this recipe! I just tried it for my first time last night and I have to say thank you for posting this! I'm even eating it for lunch today. My boyfriend and I are huge fans of Mexican/Southwest recipes and I recently went vegetarian, so this dish appealed to both of us. I did make a few adjustments. I tore apart the corn tortillas and layered them, then poured green enchilada sauce on top instead of dipping them. I also did three layers (tortillas, enchilada sauce, bean mix, tortillas, enchilada sauce, bean mix, tortillas, enchilada sauce, cheese). I sauteed the onions (cut in long halfmoon slices), garlic, green chilies (I doubled them), and jalapeno (used a can of diced jalapenos, which tripled the serving size, but WILL NOT next time, way too spicy!!!) in a little olive oil before. I also added a 15 oz can of pinto beans to the mixture. Served with salsa and sour cream. So yummy!

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2009
Love this recipe because it's an easy treat with ingredients you always have. Followed everything to the T, but I did have to bake them for close to 50 minutes for the center to set. I couldn't resist waiting for them to cool to try one. Even better the next day with caramel and chocolate sauce drizzled on top!

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
This is so good! I recently became vegetarian and have been looking for a filling main course...this does the trick!!! I ended up using an 8x8 dish and it work perfectly. I also used frozen chopped spinach (make sure to squeeze out water!) because it was easier and on hand. I didn't have feta cheese, so instead I used shredded mozzarella. I was so happy with the end results! I've already put this recipe in my favorites.

Rhubarb Dream Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
This recipe looked so yummy sounding, but I was a little disappointed. I did reduce the sugar to 2 cups...still tasted sweet. And I ended up baking it for about 50 minutes instead of 35. I still feel that it could have baked longer. Next time I make this, because I love Rhubarb I'm going to try putting it in the fridge for an hour or more after it cools. The shortbread crust was amazing, but the custard part with the rhubarb didn't seem to go together. Next time, I'll try mincing the rhubarb, not chopping, which I think may allow the rhubarb and custard filling to mix together better effect. I think it will also give it a more visually pleasing end result. Will try again soon!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I agree that this is amazing. I followed the recipe exactly, except for towards the end I made the mistake of putting the honey in with the sugar...oops. Instead of tossing it and remaking that part, I just went with it. The honey made a few parts a little chewy, but it was still yummy. I'll make sure to not do that though next time. As far as baking time, it ended up taking about 55 minutes for it to be cooked all the way through. Thanks for this awesome recipe!

Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
So delicious! I decided to make some yummy cookies to warm up a cold night and these worked great. I did want to use up some peanut butter, so I added about 1/2 cup of it and a dash of cinnamon. YUM!

Seven Layer Tortilla Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
This is one of my fave meals now...It's so yummy!!! Just made it tonight, almost the exact same as the recipe. I used whole wheat tortillas, added a dash of chili powder to both bean mixtures, and used Mexican cheese. I did throw the tortillas in the oven for about 3 minutes before which worked well. Will make this again for sure!

Chocolate Caramel Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
I just made this recipe last night and these really are some great brownies. I followed the recipe to the T and thought they turned out pretty well, but I do have a few suggestions though. 1.Make sure to put more than half the batter in the bottom of the pan, once you put the caramel on it, it sinks to the bottom, making it hard to cut the brownies out of the pan in one piece. 2. When putting on the last layer, don't worry if you cover it all. 3. Use Semi-Sweet...milk chocolate is WAY TOO sweet. 4.The brownies are much BETTER a day old!

Jalapeno-Garlic-Onion Cheeseburgers

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2008
I loved this recipe. Quick, Easy, and Delicious. I did change a few things though. I added 1 egg to help keep the meat together. I also used 1 can of diced jalapenos instead of fresh ones. I used minced roasted garlic too. I cooked them on the stove due to it snow outside, but they turned out great! Will make these again for sure when I can use the grill!
