Rich and Simple French Onion Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
Very simple and delicious. I added about 1T of Worcestershire sauce, as previously recommended, but would probably cut the butter in half next time just to make it a little healthier. Otherwise, really good... thanks!

Peppermint Snowballs

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
So yummy and easy. I was looking for a quick and fun recipe to make with my 3 and 5 year olds. Sugar cookies sounded fun, but didn't want to wait for the dough to chill. I rolled the balls to get the right size, let them roll them in sugar, and then let them decorate in either crushed candy canes or colored sprinkles. They had a blast and the cookies turned out great. Thanks for a new holiday tradition!

Quick and Easy Vegetable Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
This was such a great base recipe. I made a few alterations - used 1 1/2 c chicken broth (what I had on hand), 1 can coconut milk. Instead of the frozen veggies, I used the onion and garlic but then added 1/2c chopped red pepper and about 3/4c whole grape tomatoes. I then added 1 can chickpeas plus about 3/4c peas. I added a wee bit of sugar to mellow the spice a little - might cut the curry to 2T next time so my little ones can try, but still delicious. Served with basmati rice and homemade naan - to die for. Thank you!!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
This was very good - could be a little more flavorful, so I'll add a bit more curry next time. I did cut back on the sugar, just to 2T instead of 3T - I like a sweeter curry, so this was perfect. It was a little soupy, but I noticed what was left in the pan had thickened upon standing. We had it with naan tonight - will have leftovers with jasmine rice or over potatoes. Yummy.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2007
This was just great! I didn't change a thing, except extend the baking time 5-10 minutes because it was still raw in the middle. I have two sick toddlers right now with zero appetite, but they ate this. Thanks much!

Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
So easy and yummy. My son had so much fun putting his own touch on them, complete with chocolate chips and sprinkles. And for the user who thought many had ruined their apples using hard candies, I'm thinking not... I'd never even think to use the hard variety. Great recipe, thank you!

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: May 20, 2006
So incredibly easy, great comfort food. Greatest part was finding out that it only took 40 minutes total to prepare, not one hour as stated in the recipe, even though I cooked and stripped fresh corn on the cob in place of canned. This will definitely be in my recipe file - thanks!

Pineapple Mango Salsa over Grilled Halibut

Reviewed: May 18, 2006
Would have rated this one five stars, but the onion and cilantro in the salsa were a little overpowering... gave more spice than flavor, we thought. I'll make it again but will probably decrease the onion and cilantro and increase the mango and pineapple, maybe add in a little cucumber as well. It did, however, turn my seafood-phobic husband on to fish, so that alone deserves four stars!

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: May 3, 2006
Very good, didn't change a thing. We're usually not that crazy about cream soup based recipes as they can often be fairly bland, but this was actually quite flavorful.

Three Animal Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2006
SO GOOD! I had yet to find a meatball recipe that my husband liked, but he absolutely loved these. I used spicy Italian sausage and added garlic powder, oregano, basil, rosemary and black pepper for extra flavor... simply delish.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2005
Great base recipe. I added cumin and diced tomatoes, as others suggested, but will try adding a little hot sauce next time - it was a little bland for our taste. We also added chicken as my husband isn't big on veggie-only meals - with this addition, we easily had three to four servings. With the modifications, this one's definitely a keeper - even my toddler gobbled it up!

Crushed Pineapple Sour Cream Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2005
So incredibly easy! This literally took minutes to make. I followed your advice and just mixed everything by hand - I actually thought mine looked a little thick, but it turned out just fine. One thing I might tweak next time is taking the sugar down a bit, maybe a 1 or 1 1/2 tablespoons... it was a little on the sweet side. Still, my husband and I went back for seconds, so I'll definitely make it again. Thanks!

Shepherd's Pie VI

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2005
Great recipe! I made a few alterations as per previous reviewers, i.e., adding a garlic clove to the beef and onions and bumping the ketchup up to 1/4c. I also used two cans of diced peas and carrots in place of the boiled and mashed carrots - saved a ton of time and effort and was more visually appealing to my 21-month old. I also omitted the onions in the potatoes but added a little drizzled butter over the top to add a bit more flavor. To my great delight, my very picky 21-month old ate almost all of it! This will definitely be a staple in my house - thanks much!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2005
Fantastic recipe! So easy to make - I'll never buy store-bought hummus again. Served it up with the Tabbouleh III recipe found on this site, plus feta chunks, olives and the Naan bread, and made for an excellent Mediterranean feast. Thanks!

Tabbouleh III

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2005
Excellent recipe! I also cut back a bit on the oil to keep it healthier, but not too much. We loved the extra moisture that was there... perfect for dipping with some Naan bread! Served it up the Hummus III recipe found on this site, plus feta chunks, olives and the Naan bread, and made for a fantastic Mediterranean feast. Thanks!

Chrissy's Sweet 'n' Sour Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2005
Following suggestions from the others, I used olive oil and added thinly sliced cucumbers. I also halved the onion to cut down on the onion-breath! I agree with those who said it made too much dressing - I'll definitely cut that at least in half next time. Tasty and simple and uses ingredients I almost always have on hand - thanks!

Chicken Enchiladas I

Reviewed: May 26, 2005
Very good, but a little too spicy for DH and me. After seeing the reviews saying there wasn't enough flavor, I used half tomato sauce and half medium picante sauce (and no water), plus shredded Mexican cheese instead of cheddar... think this combo added a bit too much kick. Would have loved to use the Red Enchilada Sauce, but didn't have enough time... will definitely try next time I make it.

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: May 25, 2005
Fantastic! Made this to go with Hawaiian kabobs and it fit perfectly. I thought it might be too sweet, but my husband and I both went back for seconds. This one is definitely a keeper!

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: May 15, 2005
Very tasty... so much so that my 17 month old who hates potatoes loved them! I do agree with another reviewer, however, that it could have used a little more lemon, and did benefit from a little oregano (I used one teaspoon).
