Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
Pretty good. I wouldn't say that they're easy necessarily - dipping in the chocolate was kind of a pain. Might have been better to dilute the chocolate with a bit of Crisco. And they tasted good, but they weren't the best thing I've ever had.

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
These are pretty tasty! If I were gluten-free these would definitely be a staple. My husband was grossed out by them, others did comment on the weird texture. Also, occasionally I did run into a bit of the bean's skin when eating. But overall, taste is great, preparation is a cinch, and they're healthy!

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Meh. This was okay. I added frozen broccoli, another can of tuna, another can of condensed soup, some celery, and more cheese. It was pretty bland, and I think without those additions it would have been even worse. If you think you'll have leftovers, add the potato chips to the portions that you'll eat now - as someone else mentioned, they get soggy and gross in the fridge.

Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
This is a good base recipe. Added some cooked broccoli and onion, and used half and half instead of milk. Fast, easy, and delicious! I made this with the cream cheese crust recipe from this site. I'd used it before in fruit pies and loved it; it was a little too rich for this dish, though.

Slow Cooker Cilantro Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
I added 2 cups of chicken brother to this because my crock pot was nowhere near half full with this recipe. Also, used 2 lbs chicken and 1.4 lbs pork. It was still really watery at the end, so just removed the meat from the broth and shredded for tacos. I'm sure I lost a good amount of flavor that way, but it was still pretty tasty! The broth is delicious, so we're saving it and will use it for soup when we're sick of leftover tacos. :)

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Yum! Delicious and pretty easy. Wish the directions had you prep the boiling water for the water bath beforehand - I had the cake all ready to go and then had to wait for water to boil. I only had a 9 inch cake pan, so used that and then filled two little ramekins as well. Still delicious if you don't chill overnight, but it will just be gooey and not cake-like at all.

Cream Cheese Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
Excellent with 1/4 c of sugar added as suggested by other reviewers. Next time will add the salt and baking soda, too. I doubled the recipe because I needed two crusts and ended up with much more dough than I needed.

Cherry-Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2011
This was okay. Might try again with fresh cherries instead of the filling. Made with the cream cheese crust recipe on this website.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2010
One of my favorites - easy and delicious! Goes well on fish and chicken, and probably anything else. Tonight I accidentally poured way too much basil into the mix, and it turned into this amazing creamy pesto-type sauce.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
This was delicious, but next time I'll double the amount of chicken used.

Watermelon Vodka Slush

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
This is good but strong! I just put all the ingredients in a blender and then put the bowl in the freezer.

African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
Yum! I'm giving this four stars for how it's written, and five stars with how I prepared it. I halved the recipe, but still used a full 28 oz can of crushed tomatoes. I also added about 2/3 of a big jar of Pace Picante - Hot and a handful of chopped cilantro. I added about 3/8 c of rice instead of just 1/4. And I probably added more peanut butter - I just globbed it in. The result was a thick & spicy soup. Yummm... Will definitely make this again! I might try adding some shredded chicken and coconut milk to make it different, but it was definitely great the way I made it this time!

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
Four stars because as written, it would be pretty good. As others have mentioned, this needs some extra spices to be delicious. I doubled the recipe and added a jalepeno. Instead of using all black beans, I used two cans of black beans, two cans of kidney beans (this is chili, after all), and two cans of pinto beans. I used two of the giant (28 oz?) cans of crushed tomatoes. I then added more vinegar, cayenne (2 tbsp), cumin (1 tbsp), and crushed red pepper (~1 tbsp). Other people have said that they used 1.5 lbs of turkey for the original recipe, which would have been too much for me. 2 lbs for a double recipe was perfect.

Holiday Wild Rice

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2009
Meh. This was a box of Uncle Ben's rice with some vegetables. Not very interesting. (but also not bad)

Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
The store was out of peppermint extract, so I just crushed the candies in the blender and mixed them directly into the chocolates. Also, I missed the part about refrigerating the semi-sweet layer while preparing the white chocolate layer, so the final product ended up a bit... muddy. But still delicious!

Butternut Squash-Sweet Potato Ginger Bisque

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
If I had followed this recipe to the T, it would have been extremely bland. Here's what I did to make it yummier: curry powder, cayenne pepper, cinnamon, 3x the amount of yogurt, 2x amount of ginger. To make it easier to peel, I cut the squash in half and baked it at 400 with some water in the pan. I let that cook until I had my sweet potatoes prepped and in the pots. By the way, this recipe makes A LOT. I have at least two weeks' worth of lunch. It took me about an hour and 15 minutes to make it.

Whole Wheat Bread III

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
For now I'm giving this three stars. The lack of manual instructions is frustrating, especially for those of us who don't want to use a bm. Thanks to the user who posted non-bm instructions! The flavor is ok, but a tad sweeter than what I wanted. My bread didn't rise at all, but I think that is probably my fault: I only had 2.25 tsp of yeast, and I didn't let the dough rise after kneading. I will be trying this again, though!
