Easy Lemon Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
A super easy cookie recipe that could not be any easier. I used 1 1/2 tsp. of lemon extract and baked the cookies first on a Silpat and then on parchment paper. The ones on parchment paper came out so much better (crispier) so I continued with the parchment paper. They came out identical to the picture as well. I found that if I rolled them in a ball, dropped them in the sugar, rolled them around in the sugar, then rolled them again, dropped them again in the sugar, and then placed them on the cookie sheet, they retained the sugar more than just one roll in the sugar. Absolutely no need to refrigerate this dough as it is light and doesn't stick too much. I can't wait to try them with other types of cake mix and flavorings.

Ritz Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2009
Nice and easy cookie to make and took the suggestion of adding cinnamon. I had quite a few leftover eggs from making "coquito" (eggnog) and used this recipe to use the egg whites. I baked some on parchment paper and some on a Silpat and the ones on parchment turned out far superior. I baked them for about 8 minutes each, let them sit on the cookie sheet for about 1-2 minutes, and then transferred to a wire rack to cool. Thanks!

Spicy Garlic Panini Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
Great sauce that was enough for 3 large paninis. It was a nice change from plain mayonnaise and simple enough to make your own alterations to easily.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Great Sunday afternoon, football watching sandwich! Threw all the ingredients into the crockpot and added some extra hot sauce (Cholula) and it turned out great. I wouldn't change a thing at all.

Slow-Cooked Country Ribs in Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2009
So easy! Followed the directions to the letter and let it cook on low all day in the crock pot. I didn't like the color on the ribs after they had been in about 4-5 hours (they went in frozen) so I took them out and put them in a saute pan for a few minutes to brown up. That made a huge difference in color in the crock pot. When they were ready, I pulled out the ribs and added my slurry mixture (1 tsp. cornstarch to about 1/4 cup cold water), mixed it up, and put the cover back on while I served everything else. Then I served the gravy over top mashed potatoes. Huge hit! After I put the ribs in the fridge, my husband snuck them back out to nibble on "just a little bit." Thanks for the great recipe.

Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
Tasty! I used the raisins, but didn't have walnuts so chopped up pecans and cashews instead for the added crunch. Pie was completely vegan with use of Earth Balance vegan spread and a Whole Foods pie crust. So yummy!

Better Than Best Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
This was really good and a nice change for skinless chicken breasts. I used 2 chicken breasts that I cut into tenders and marinated it for about an hour in the egg and soup mix. BTW, I used a can of cream of mushroom soup because that was all I had on hand. To the flour/cornstarch mix I added lots of seasonings to punch it up including chipotle chili powder and Adobo, but I also added cornmeal for extra crunch. After breading, I let them sit for about 1 hour. I then fried them in 3 batches in my wok and for some strange reason, the last batch came out light and looked the best. The first two batches looked like the picture for this recipe and the last looked like regular fried chicken. I can't explain that because the oil was hot enough prior to frying. Regardless, it was a hit because it was moist on the inside and crunchy on the outside.

Oven Baked Tempeh

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
Interesting dish. I never use tempeh without seasoning it first. Maybe this could help others. In a bowl I put approx. 2 T. olive oil and about 4-5 T. Bragg's with some seasoning. Use what you like. I used some Goya Adobo and cumin, but you could use garlic powder, etc. I then crumbled the tempeh into the bowl, mixed it up, and set it aside until it was time to add to the veggies. This lets the seasoning permeate the tempeh and give it some much needed taste. Like a previous reviewer said, don't overcook the veggies. I found I didn't need to saute anything for 5 minutes before adding the next set of ingredients. I doubled the zucchini, used an entire red pepper, and instead of sherry I used vegetable broth. This made quite a lot and I served it with mashed potatoes for everyone and noodles for me (vegan). It tasted really good! I will mix the leftovers tonight with brown rice and put them in some peppers and make stuffed peppers.

Sausage Steamed Dinner

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
Great recipe! I had turnips, carrots, garlic scapes, cabbage and kohlrabi from my CSA share and didn't know what to make. Pulled out some smoked sausage and started there. I didn't have ham hocks, but not to worry. Sliced the sausage and sauteed with a sweet onion. Deglazed the pan with white wine as well. In a crockpot I put 5 chopped turnips, 1 chopped kohlrabi, carrots, and a few garlic scapes sliced thin. I added a can of black beans and corn and a bouillon cube. Lastly I added a can of mild chiles and didn't add the cabbage until about an hour before serving. My husband said the turnips tasted like potatoes and it was a great soup. Super easy and used my produce the best way I could find.

Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
Great recipe! I normally don't make a whole chicken, but the price was right. I used previous reviewers' suggestions of combining everything and then putting it on the chicken. I added fresh thyme because I had some on hand and it came out great. Definitely will use this recipe again.

Easy Tilapia

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
Good recipe for someone hesitant to cook fish. I bought a bit more fish as 6 oz. of fillets was hardly enough for two people. The sauce makes a lot of sauce and I could have cut back on that. My son loved the fish, but wasn't hot on the sauce (I think because of the capers) and my husband liked the sauce, but thought the fish was too lemony. It was an easy way to incorporate fish into our life, but I would use less lemon next time and add garlic. Thanks!

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2009
Delicious! Yes, it required paying attention to it, but it was totally worth it. I added only a little bit of vegetable broth at a time and added asparagus in addition to the mushrooms and shallots. Finished it off with Earth Balance spread (non-dairy), scallions instead of chives as that is what I had on hand, a little salt and pepper, and no parmesan cheese for a surprisingly awesome vegan dish. Yes, vegan! I always thought risotto had tons of cream or cheese to account for the creaminess, but none to be found and it was so good!

Best Yet Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
Super good and super fast! Cooked the ground turkey with an onion (no pepper in the house) and then put the spices in before adding beans, corn, and tomatoes. I just got habanero chili powder, which smelled great and was nice to use. I used a smaller can of tomatoes and about 1/2 jar of salsa to make up for the liquid. I also added some sliced jalapenos and used about 1 1/2 tsp. of cumin and about 1 T. of the chili powder. Let it cook for about 2 hours and it was a big hit. Thanks for the great recipe!

Pasta and Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2009
Yummy! Easy to make and delicious. I made some very minor changes, but the original recipe was good. I sauteed the onion and then added about 7 or so cloves of minced garlic. I added salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and basil before adding the tomatoes to bring out the spices. I chopped one tomato and added two cans of tomatoes with garlic, basil, and onion and 2 cans of beans. I used whole wheat elbow pasta although penne would have been perfect. When the pasta was ready, I threw in a bag of baby spinach and shut the heat off. I took about about 1/2 cup of the cooking water and added it to the beans. Drained the pasta, threw it in the pot with the tomatoes and beans and combined. Fantastic and although I doubled the recipe and added a few changes, it was a delicious vegetarian meal that even the meat eaters loved.

Cheesy Potatoes and Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
Great way to use leftover Easter dinner. I used shredded cheddar and about 1/2 cup half & half (had it in the fridge and had no use for it). It made it a little more creamy -- worked for us. Also added in some leftover peas and carrots. Quick, easy and tasty!

Polish Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2009
Super fast, everyone liked it - easy 5 stars. Of course, I made changes. I didn't use 2 pounds of meat, I only used one pound of kielbasa, which I sauteed with one chopped onion. To the pot I added the bag of baby carrots, celery, 4 red potatoes (chopped), one sweet potato (peeled and chopped), and 1/2 cup red lentils. I used chicken stock and added Mrs. Dash and salt and pepper. Big hit as the lentils thickened it up and added extra protein without breaking the bank. I cooked it for about 2 hours at simmer and it came out really good. I was tempted to add spinach or peas, some more color, but I am glad I left it as is. Great last minute meal maker.

Spicy Sausage and Rice Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
Simple, easy to make, and I was pleased with the results. I used a red pepper, spicy chicken sausage, and a 5 oz. package of yellow rice. I also added one can of black beans. It came out great and not dry -- exactly as I wanted it so I am glad I used a little less rice. I used to casserole dishes that I sprayed a little Pam in first before baking. Thanks!

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
Fantastic recipe! I used smoked sausage that I cut into rings and put in the oven. Next time I will put the bacon in the oven as well as it took so long to crisp with the onions. I used a carton of chicken stock and added in red pepper flakes per the suggestions here. I used three potatoes and fat free half and half instead of whipping cream. We've never had the original, but all I can say is that this was gone quickly. Two large servings for my husband and son so if you have a big family, double the recipe!

Garlic Cheese Chicken Rollups

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
Really nice and easy to make. Pounded out four chicken breasts and had to adapt the filling as I had none of the items on hand. I used some goat cheese, previously cooked bacon, some shredded cheese, and a little salt, pepper, and parsley. Otherwise followed the recipe as written and it came out great. Served it with mashed potatoes and veggies and it was well received.

Quiche Lorraine II

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
Beautifully easy recipe! The only change I made was with the addition of a about 2 T. chopped sundried tomatoes in oil. I added them to the onions when they were almost done cooking and I had decreased the amount of drippings from 2 T. to 1 T. because of the sundried tomatoes. In addition, I used about 8 slices of bacon, which I cooked in the oven on an aluminum foil lined pan at 300 degrees until crisp. Before cooking, I sprinkled the bacon with just a bit of brown sugar. Quiche came out fantastic! I sprayed the pan with a bit of Pam so it didn't stick, put some beans on the foil before baking, and used a pie crust oval on top of the quiche to prevent it from burning. My husband kept asking what I put in it and thought it was some super fancy recipe. Funny how quiche when done well can have that affect. Thank you for a great recipe!
