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!

Mom's Italian Beef Barley Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
Very filling and tasty, and the whole family loved it! I did add carrots, celery and a garlic clove at the beginning, plus increased the water to 7 cups with one extra bouillon cube. Perfect dinner on a rainy day, served up with warm crusty bread right out of the oven. :)

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!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

Ropa Vieja in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
Excellent! So easy... followed the recipe exactly, with the exception of cooking just 15 minutes at the end instead of 30. Fabulous with rice and plantains... definitely a keeper!

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!

Soft & Fruity Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
Wow - this is our new favorite cookie recipe! Usually my kids go for chocolate chip, but we didn't have any in the house, so I went hunting for a new recipe. To this, I added chopped dates, chopped apricots and coconut. I flattened them just slightly, with no sugar added, and they turned out perfectly! I'm known for my cookie-baking acumen, and these are absolutely the best I've ever made. Thanks!!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
Wow - so yummy! I did nothing to alter the recipe, and it was just perfect. We just got back from Disney, and these honestly look and taste so much like the big cookies they sell in the resort bakeries, but even better because they're not quite as heavy. Kids love them, hubby loves them - thanks for a great addition to my recipe box!

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
This dough was so incredibly easy to work with. I did refrigerate it, but only for about 45 minutes, and only out of necessity since I squeezed the dough-making in after dinner, threw it in the fridge, put the kiddos to bed, then back downstairs to do the baking! Only tweak I made was using an extra 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Made two dozen sugar cookies, flattening with a sugar-coated drinking glass, then made one dozen as Snickerdoodles (rolled the balls in cinnamon sugar), and the last dozen as Christmas thumbprints (rolled in green or red sugar, and will add frosting or icing later). Three kinds of cookies from one batch, all wonderfully textured and sweet - this one's definitely a keeper!

Greek Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Dressing was fabulous! I subbed cukes for the peppers, and left out the onions to make it more kid-friendly. I make Greek salad a lot, but this version is a new fave. My kids used extra dressing for their chicken and rice, and couldn't get enough.

Raspberry Truffles

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
So incredibly easy. I followed the recipe exactly, but did use a higher-end raspberry spread and Ghiradelli chocolate. Mine ended up chilling for two hours, and it was actually quite stiff to begin with, but worked pretty easily into the shapes I wanted. Ran out of almonds, so rolled them in one of three coatings: chopped pecans, coconut or cocoa. Super yum - thanks for making this part of my hubby's Valentine's Day gift so easy!

Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2011
JUST what I was looking for! Super simple, all ingredients on hand, and with the moist and dense texture I was looking for. I made a few changes - added 1/2t baking soda, 1t vanilla, and an extra banana (since mine were on the small side). Since I didn't have small loaf pans, I made mine into muffins instead (yield 16 large muffins), and sprinkled cinnamon sugar on top of each before putting them into the oven. Baked at 350 degrees for 18 minutes, and they came out perfectly! Definitely a keeper... my house smells heavenly. ;)
