New Mexico Green Chile Breakfast Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
EDIT --- I'm putting this at the top, because it's pretty important.. When simmering the chile, make sure to not let the peppers simmer for too long, they can begin to lose their flavor as they're already roasted/cooked beforehand. Also, if you can find it - use the FROZEN hatch green chile. Okay. So I'm kind of nervous to say this, as there may be several New Mexicans lurking about... BUT - I do hate green chile. Yes, I am a resident of New Mexico. Born and raised. This was the first time I've EVER liked green chile. I used mild because I don't like my chile to overwhelm the taste of the dish, but I still want a little "kick." I could walk across the street and pay $5 for this burrito at a taco truck, but it tasted 200x better while relaxing in my pj's and chowing down on this baby. THANK YOU "applejedi1," for this outstanding recipe. Now, if only I could eat one everyday without increasing my chances of that heart attack ;)

Rocky Road Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
I've made this multiple times and it's delicious every single time! Our family loves this recipe and if it didn't disappear so quickly, I'd make it more often.. Sadly, I just can't keep up with how fast this is eaten. I don't change a thing! Although, if I can't find light cream.. I will sometimes sub half and half. It does it's job just fine :)

Sweet Vanilla Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Definitely double the vanilla!! These were good! SOOO simple, everybody loved them. I think they may have been a little dry, so I may make adjustments next time. But for simplicity and taste? This deserves 5 stars. I loved how they kind of "carmelized" on top. After baking, I filled these with a mixture of french vanilla pudding, whipped cream and a splash of milk. I then topped them with white chocolate buttercream and a chocolate dipped strawberry for Valentines and brought them to work. Yummy! Thanks, Marianne!

Herbed Cottage Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2010
Mmmmm!!! Sooo good. I've been making this for several months now and have no clue why I haven't left a review. I have two tubs sitting in my fridge right now. My boyfriend LOVES it and he HATES cottage cheese. This is a great treat if you're health conscious or dieting. Also, BE SURE TO LET THIS SIT IN THE FRIDGE OVERNIGHT BEFORE SERVING. The flavor isn't half as intense as it will be the following day, and when I don't have chives, I just sub green onions. Just as good, the onions may be "spicier," but delish!

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
I was SO nervous to make this because it's NOT cheap and I've never cooked a roast like this before. But this was sooo easy, it would be difficult to not get it right. This came out very moist and tender, be sure to get some of that delicious garlicky crust on your steak. I was going to take the roast out when the meat thermometer said 130 degrees, but I checked it too late and it was already at 145.. But whaddya know? It was perfect!! Pinkish on the inside and so tender. Oh, Chef Mike.. Thank you. You helped me impress my boyfriends family and make my first big feast for Easter Dinner.

Cheesy Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Mmmmm :) I wish I made more of this! It was SOOOO good. I didn't exactly measure my parmesan, and just threw in a 6 oz package of provolone (8 slices). I like a little nutmeg in my Creamed Spinach so I put a little touch of that. Yum yum. I could eat this stuff all day. Serve with some bread to soak up all of that cream.

Stuffed Strawberries

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Served these atop Rocky Road ice cream with a little shaved chocolate on top. I didn't have orange liqueur so I had to sub vanilla extract which was still delicious. Everybody commented how professional these looked when served :) I only messed up one strawberry and that was slightly on purpose ;) it just looked so good.

Tomato and Mozzarella Bites

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
My boyfriend made these for a little BBQ we attended. Everybody liked them. I think they should marinate in the oil just a bit, or possibly use the tiniest tomatoes as possible so that they don't steal the spotlight. As another user suggested, I used TJ's marinated mozzarella balls, then poured the leftover oil over each skewer bite. Our friends said they tasted like, "fresh pizza!" Never had caprese, I'll assume :)

Breakfast Loaf

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
This is a wonderful idea. I just sent it with my boyfriend to work and his co-workers said it was "bomb." Which I'm assuming means good because they all said they wouldn't mind eating it every morning for the rest of their lives! I left out the bell pepper and tomato because of personal preference, used sourdough and added chives to the eggs as Sheila T. suggested, and threw in some mushrooms. I then topped it with olives. This was wonderful. Thank you so much, Amy McCuan for a creative recipe :)

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Yummy! Everybody liked it. And sooo cheap! We fed 11 people for under $15 and made extra for lunch the next day, but that was all eaten up too! I bought about 9 pounds of chicken from Costco, and this was the perfect recipe to help use it all up.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2012
Wait. I've never reviewed this before?! I could have sworn.. Anyway, shame on me for not giving this 5 stars sooner. This is my absolute FAVORITE lasagna! I took suggestions that it was too watery and cut back on the vegetable broth the first time (only left about an ounce or two in the can) and threw in the whole jar of artichoke hearts with the marinade and everything. That was when I personally liked it best, but I noticed a lot of people saying it was too "vinegary." I made it with a coworker this past Friday and her and her mother RAVED. I added ricotta/egg/nutmeg mixture to the mozzarella cheese layer, used and entire package of no-boil noodles (I like my lasagna noodles rolled flat), a whole can of broth and just a little (ounce or so) of the artichoke marinade. I'll definitely use the ricotta again next time. I think the measurements would be perfectly fine, not too watery if you used an entire package of lasagna noodles to soak it all up.

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
Yummy :) The cinnamon-sugar mixture did end up running a little, I tried the whole turning over thing and that did help a tiny bit, but then all of the brown sugar glazed over the top of the buns and kind of made them look messy. I easily scooped up the excess mixture with a spoons and placed it on top of the rolls making sure to get most of it on the inside. Everybody loved these and said they were better than the ones at Cinnabon. Makes plenty of frosting, so don't be greedy ;) Thank you, Marsha for this recipe. These are awesome.

Easy Vegan Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2012
Mmmm! Sooo good and SO easy! I didn't really do a lot of measuring with this and I didn't even heat it up over the stove. I just dropped some Earth Balance in a bowl then popped it into the microwave for 10 secs. and mixed the powdered sugar and the peanut butter in, formed into a brick and sliced. It was just a lot quicker and I needed something to satiate my sugar craving. Absolutely delicious! I miss the honey in my peanut butter, and for some reason this fills that void. Thanks for the recipe!

Joy's Prizewinning Trifle

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Really nice to sit down to after a suuuper long day of cooking! I really enjoy how it wasn't overly sweet, and it had a nice, airy, fruity taste :) allll of the kids loved it. It was gone in under 2 minutes, and everybody said: "That was one of the best desserts I've ever had!!" My boyfriend chose French Vanilla pudding and we also prepared it before folding it in, which I would highly recommend. Thank youuu, Ms. Joy :)

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Ever since a friend of mine in San Francisco first introduced me to zucchini bread, I have been absolutely craving it and trying to hunt down a good recipe. Needless to say, I found it! THANK YOU SO MUCH! It's amazing. Whenever I have extra on hand, I do add extra zucchini and walnuts. My boyfriends cousin even asked me to bake him a loaf :) UPDATE: I made these again for my boyfriends breakfast the night before (I like to sleep in as often as possible) in muffin-form. I recommend using the foil cups, sans the paper liners as they will stick. They come off completely clean and beautifully if just used with foil cups, no greasing/flouring required. I baked at 325 for 30-35 minutes and inserted a toothpick to check for doneness. I recommend substituting half oil with applesauce, and cutting the sugar to two cups, using one cup brown sugar. I sent him with about 12 muffins, some jelly and whipped honey butter and his bosses RAVED. His co-worker even ate 6 of them!!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2013
Yummy :) I made these while my fiance and I were housesitting for his boss as a "Welcome Home/Congrats" treat after their wedding. They were amazing! And that's coming from someone who isn't the biggest fan of chocolate chip cookies. I loved the addition of the pudding (which of course you use dry in it's powdered form). I believe that's what makes them so soft. The pudding mix also adds a delicious vanilla flavor to the cookies, I doubled my vanilla extract (I use homemade, not as strong) but it was definitely unnecessary.This recipe makes a LOT of cookie dough, so you can freeze some for later. I did find that these cookies were best when made fresh, and weren't as fluffy and soft as when I let the dough sit and freeze for 24 hours. I took my time with these and dropped the balls of dough sans chips and then decorated them with the chips afterwards to get that signature "perfect cookie" look. They looked like something out of a Williams-Sonoma catalog. I was definitely impressed as were the newlyweds. We took some to my future in laws and everybody raved. I will never use another chocolate chip cookie recipe again.

Mushroom Artichoke Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2013
Hubby helped his pregnant wife out tonight and made me this for dinner. He threw in some leftover orange bell pepper and used rosemary sourdough bread. The filling is just awesome. I loved these sandwiches, they are very flavorful and we didn't miss all of the gooey cheese one bit! The parmesan was just perfect. I would highly recommend this recipe as is, or to use up any leftover veggies like we did. Thank you!

Mayo-Free Tuna Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
I think I just died and gone to heaven. I almost want to cry tears of happiness because of this recipe. I'm allergic to mayonnaise and don't even like it to begin with, and I've been eating my sandwiches with mustard for years. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE mustard, but the hummus adds that "creamy" consistency a true tuna sandwich should possess. THANK YOU SO MUCH, "A Turtle in the Kitchen!" You have made more than my day.

Rosemary-Infused Watermelon Lemonade

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
Only one person out of 10 didn't like it! A little too bitter for me, but still good. I wish I had chilled the glasses, though.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
Ahhh. Insatiable pregnancy cravings. I woke up in the middle of the night and just HAD to have apple pie and ice cream. So, I made some.. Yes, in the middle of the night. And it was GOOD. I've made this pie before but read a review recommending to double the caramel sauce, mixing some with the apples and then using the rest to pour over. I have to say I much prefer sticking to the recipe. Don't double, you'll end up with way too much buttery goo and it'll be over the top sweet and you can't have that because that's what the ice cream is for. I do add one teaspoon of homemade vanilla, and I think this is crucial. It may just be the fact that I'm pregnant, but I could seriously have eaten a whole bowl of the caramel-butter-goo. It's that good. I recommend using a pastry brush to evenly coat the crust when you're pouring the goo over the pie to ensure you get the outer crust without it spilling over. I still recommend that you line the bottom rack with foil, as this tends to drip just a little. I also saw another review saying "the sauce never thickened up." I'm not sure what happened here, but mine came out perfectly fine. It was runny straight out of the oven (couldn't resist), but thickened up just fine. And this is coming from someone who is not the greatest baker. Try it. You won't be disappointed. Mm, mm. SO GOOD!
