Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
This ARE the best ever muffins. I substituted the oil for butter, but that was just it; these were the most tender muffins I have ever baked, and simple too, too many "dessert" muffin recipes out there, not enough "snack" ones, this one fits the bill with it's simplicity and versatility. Thank you!

Skillet Beef and Macaroni

Reviewed: May 23, 2009
My husband adored it, I cooked it as it was, except that I added some minced garlic and when it was done, I sprinkled shredded cheddar on top and let it melt slightly. As a recipe for those days in which you want to please you husband, but don't really feel like cooking, it can't be beat.

Danish Pastry Apple Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Excellent!. My husband, the apple pie snob, raved about it and I'm having a hard time not having a second piece. I used only 7 apples, because that's all I had and I kept the sugar and the spices the same, but I added two tablespoons of flour so I wouldn't be so runny and a quarter teaspoon of ground ginger, I also layered the top of the apples with chopped walnuts before adding the crust. I personally didn't have any problems whatsoever with the crust, in fact, I find it easier to work with than the classic pie crust. It also looks beautiful with the egg wash. It's not really fall until you bake your first apple dessert, isn't it?.

One Bowl Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2008
This was not only my first time baking brownies, but my first time eating brownies (yep, I come from a brownie-less country), I followed the recipe exactly, except that I baked them in a smaller dish (9x11)and I added a 1/4 tsp. salt. At precisely 35 minutes, I pulled the brownies out of the oven and I was met with a shiny surface and a heavenly smell and when cutting them off, they came off the pan perfectly without getting stuck at all, perhaps it was the fact that I used a glass pan?. Well, it turns out I don't like brownies at all!, the concept is far to much for me, too dense, too sweet, too chocolate-y; but my husband, who's american, told me they were absolutely perfect in every sense possible, so, five stars!.

French Leek and Ham Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
This was very very good!. I did add some fresh thyme to the leek mixture and I'll add to the reviewer who says that this makes a lot of food. But that's good!, my husband was delighted that thre were leftovers the next day and said that cold was even better. I think this would be very good with the leek mixture mixed with cheddar cheese sauce, too. Mmm, a wonderful winter sunday meal.

Czech Roast Pork

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2008
This was very, very good!. I was afraid at the amount of caraway this recipe has and I feared that my husband would reject it, but, it came out just great and he loved it. Somehow, the caraway brings out the pork flavor and it helps to make a wonderful gravy. And the aroma while cooking it? Divine!, I kept looking at the oven and saying "oh just get cooked, already!".

Titaina

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2008
For years I've tried to replicate the filling of another spanish dish: Empanada Gallega. Well, not anymore, this is it!. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Oh, by the way, we had this with bread and warm green beans mixed with minced fresh garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and feta cheese.

Roasted Garlic Cauliflower

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2008
I'm very glad I tried this one, it is definetely a husband pleaser; I had to tell my husband to leave some for me, he was just eating it out of the pan!. It reminded me of bagna cauda-dipped cauliflower, to tell the truth, but without all the hassle of actually preparing it!.

Cut-Out Cookies Made with Oat Flour

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2007
I made these ones a couple of nights ago for my husband and I and today are almost gone. Buttery, creamy, light, perfect!. They were very easy to roll and cut and actually healthier, due to all that oat flour, which is a plus, if you are trying to sneak in some oats into your loved one's diet. This is the kind of cookie made for decorating, icing and dipping in chocolate, a delicate flavor that doesn't clash with your choice of decorating; I plan to make these ones for Christmas and pass around, along with the recipe.

Mushroom and Leek Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
This is excellent! A light flavored soup brimming with hearty flavors. I added a minced garlic clove plus a bunch of fresh thyme leaves and I used cremini mushrooms and a bit less fat than it calls for.

Bread Pudding II

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2006
Yep, is that good, just as everyone is saying. Last night, even though the weather was very hot, I felt the urge to eat something conforting, this hit just the spot, easy to do, and very satisfying. And, if you notice, is very low in calories, too!. Because I was going for a bread pudding similar to the one we eat at our fave joint, I halved the teaspoon of cinnamon in half and added half a lemon zest, I also mixed half cup of the sugar with milk and added the rest (quarter cup) in brown sugar on the top. I made it with skim milk and it didn't seem to change the custardly texture a bit. I added the raisins, but I used about a quarter cup, only. Oh and I used three eggs, just as almost every reviewer. We had it warm with cream drizzled with honey and it was scrumptious, I had it this morning cold with milk and it was delicious as well. Wonderful!.

Lemon Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2005
It was very, very tasty, but, next time, I'll cut the butter at least in half. If you don't have lemon pepper; fresh lemon peal mixed with pepper works just fine.

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2004
Sweet!!. I added some thawed frozen corn and it was even better. Then, on a whim, I topped my slice with homemade dulce de leche, ooh, heavens!.

Bagna Cauda

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2004
Whoo, boy!, we just finished our bagna-cauda. It was delicious!. My granny used to do this for grand occasions, where there were at least ten people round the table, and to me, this bagna-cauda means good memories. Unfortunaley, by the time I asked my granny for the recipe she was already ninety-nine and she had forgotten the recipe!!. This recipe is extremely similar, except that, I'm thinking that she might have put more anchovies and garlic in it, plus a little olive oil and pepper. And we always served as fondue it in a founde pot to keep it hot. All in all, this is a wonderful recipe, even my husband who doesn't like anchovies loved it. A note for those who don't know what to serve it with, we eat it with boiled potato chunks, italian bread, celery, gren bell peppers, cooked broccoli and cauliflower, raw carrots, cooked green beans and steamed onions and boiled cardoon.

Cinnamon Bread I

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2004
I don't know what happened, but it came out very dense and "wet", even when I increased the baking time. Besides that, great flavor.

Scallop Scampi

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2004
This was my first time cooking scallops, so I was very nervous, but it came out fabulous!. Here is what I changed: half butter, half olive oil, but less of both in quantity, I used green onions instead of onion, parmesan instead of romano, as most here, I took the scallops before reducing the sauce and in the end, I added some seeded, chopped fresh tomatoes to the sauce and just warmed them up, before serving. Next time, I think I will serve this on a bed of steamed asparagus instead of a bed of pasta. Thanks, Nikki!!.

Peach Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2004
This bread is very good, but too sweet and oily. I ommited the cinnamon and added lemon peel instead. It is very tender and moist, but the flavor reminded me of the fruit fritters we make in my country, not the flavor I was hopping to get on a bread. Next time I'll experiment with less oil or maybe I'll substitute part of the oil for applesauce.
