Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: May 12, 2012
Delicious!! Quinoa is a South American seed that is covered with a very bitter coating that protects the seeds from being eaten by birds. It is so important to rinse this coating off in a strainer with plenty of cold running water. It can turn mushy so be gentle with it and don't mix it too long when adding the beans and cilantro. I have never soaked quinoa, as some rviewers have mentioned. So yummy and healthy, thank you:)

Buttermilk Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: May 9, 2012
Really good muffins. They bake up so nice and high. Like others, I added vanilla and cinnamon and nutmeg. The nutmeg is great in these. They could have been bland without these perhaps. Crisp on top and moist inside. Just sweet enough .For anyone interested they are about 229 calories a piece if you only make 8, but I got more muffins out of this recipe. My daughter liked them as well and she doesn't often eat muffins. Thanks!

Rosemary Herb Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
Amazing! Made by hand following the traditional method....proofing the yeast with the sugar and 110 degree milk for 8 to 10 minutes. then adding the eggs, butter and dry ingredients (mixed together with the herbs)... Letting it rise once until doubled, then the second time in the loaf pan. this rises incredibly well!!! So wonderful. I can definately see this becoming addictive!! Thank you!!!!

Gil's Brioche French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
I made brioche yesterday in culinary school and my professor said that it made the best french toast and I had to try it. I found this recipe (didn't use the toppings) and it was amazing. The brioche soaks up so much of the eggs and cream mixture that the final result is almost custardy. I can see why this is the true french bread for french toast! While I have enjoyed challah in the past for this, the enriched eggy butteriness of brioche is perfect.

Roasted Asparagus with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
This was totally yummy. I love balsamic vinegar, but actually left it off this time. The asparagus was great without it:)

Sugar Cookie Icing

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
This is excelent and delivers exactly what the submitter claims...shiny, bright, hard icing. And it tastes good too. Especially on sugar cookies that have some almond extract in them as well.

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
These are wonderful tender cut out cookies! The dough does need to be chilled and then brought back to room temperature to roll really well. The bit of almond give them such a special flavor, setting them apart from other sugar cookies. I also frost them with Sugar Cookie Icing (from this site), which includes almond. I make these every holiday. Thank you.

Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2012
These are really good muffins that bake up beautifully domed on top. Not too sweet, but with a super creamy peanut butter frosting they are a wonderful dessert.

Easy Pesto

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
I chose this recipe because I had a bunch of basil that was going to go bad and I realized that my pine nuts had gone rancid. I added some parmesan cheese (probably about an ounce...i just cut off a chunk and threw it in) and replaced some of the oil with lemon juice to cut the fat a bit and heighten the flavor. SO YUM! We ate it with some roasted chicken.

Chicken Cordon Bleu II

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
The sauce is excellent and totally deserves 5 stars. I love the way some of the cheese leaks out from the breasts and gets mixed in with the sauce. I just seem to prefer baking my stuffed chicken breasts, it's easier and less messy. I have found another recipe for the breasts and use elements of this sauce to top them.

Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
I like this recipe a lot! Others that I have served this to haven't always been as crazy about it though. The sauce is great for pancakes and waffles. I have made the sauce on its own many times and I absolutely love it. Thank you.

Honey Bun Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
Yum! Really does taste like a honey bun. I don't put all of the glaze on it. Only about half, with even a little less milk.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
One of my favorite cookies of all time. EASY and inexpensive to make. I never use margarine, only butter, increase the spices a bit and add a half teaspoon of cream of tarter to ensure a crinkly top. I refrigerate them just a very short time and NEVER flatten them- they bake up perfectly straight from the balls. I also make them smaller (.07oz makes 40), so they can be put out with other seasonal treats. They can be served with a pumpkin dip for a pretty presentation. These are always LOVED by EVERYONE who tastes them. Try them. You won't be sorry!

Scotcharoos

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
Great! I grew up on these. Today they are one of my childrens favorites. Everyone seems to love these. They have so much flavor (not just plain sugary sweet) compared to the regular rice cereal treats.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
I have been making an alfredo sauce like this for over a decade. My oldest daughter absolutly loves it and won't eat alfredo from a restaurant anymore. I use a little less milk and add sauteed mushrooms. Sometimes I throw in extra cheese.
