Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2002
This bread is PHENOMENAL! I was a little nervous at its consistency as during the preparation phase, it doesn't resemble a typical bread loaf. It was more like very loose chocolate chip cookie dough, but that's ok -- that's the way it should be. This was delicious beyond words and is now a part of my permanent recipe collection.

Lori's Beef and Spaghetti Macaroni

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2007
Great recipe! I doubled the recipe and put in some fresh minced garlic and Italian seasoning. This is a simple, fast meal that anyone would like. The shredded cheese on top isn't mandatory, but is a nice touch if you want it.

Sheboygan Grilled Brats

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
Oh I should have taken a photo like I usually do, but they didn't last long enough to photograph. I used 4 brats with the regular amount of onions and other ingredients and they were gone so quickly you would never have known I cooked dinner. Fabulous recipe and easy to make. Thanks!

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
Fabulous and then some! I wanted a quick cookie to make since today is the first day of summer vacation and the kids are around. These took absolutely no time to make and came out great. I didn't have maple sugar so I just added maple syrup to sugar and a little cinnamon and stirred that up and rolled the cookie dough in it. I baked them for a little longer, about 12 minutes and they are going to be gone in no time at all. Thanks!

Watermelon Fire and Ice Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2007
I could easily eat this every day! Fresh and light, it tricks everyone into thinking it is tomato salsa, but IT'S NOT! Great with chips, but delicious with quesadillas, fish, or chicken. A great recipe that you just have to try.

Delicious Pineapple Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2007
I followed Tunisianwife's suggestion and added pineapple to the batter along with nutmeg and vanilla. I also did not melt the butter for the topping but used room temperature butter. Baked the large muffins for 37 minutes, regular size for 30 minutes and they were all gone in minutes. Delicious! I am so glad that I added the extra pineapple to the batter as it was a light, sweet flavor. Thanks!

Guacamole

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
YUMMY! My husband has been craving guacamole lately and I have been tired of buying Whole Foods' yummy, but expensive small tub of guacamole. Easy to prepare and I used my own fresh cilantro from my herb garden and cherry tomatoes. I served it with Whole Foods' Restaurant Style tortilla chips (which are heaven!) and my husband and kids wanted to devour it and skip dinner altogether. Thank you for a glorious recipe!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2007
Love these! I followed the suggestions when I doubled the recipe, but didn't double the topping. I also added vanilla to the batter and used 1/2 white flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour and they were incredible.

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
Fantabulous! Oh so good and was the easiest way to sneak in veggies for a visiting finicky child. I was happy to use zucchini that I picked from my garden and although maybe not great for my waistline, great for the kids to try. The only change I made was to add 1/4 cup shredded coconut and used regular size chocolate chips. Everyone loved them and I doubt they will be around by the end of the morning. Great recipe!

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2007
Beyond super yummy! I broke my crock pot at the beginning of summer and just got a new one this week and broke it in with this fabulous recipe. I used 1 1/2 lbs. chicken legs, frozen, that I put in the crockpot along with salt, pepper, and 2 cups chicken broth and let that cook 1 hour. I added the remaining ingredients and followed the directions to the letter, but did add the juice of 1 lime and put the cilantro in towards the end. My husband ate two huge bowls and my son ate three! They loved it and it had great flavor that required no tweaking. This is unusual as my husband usually wants it spicier and my daughter thinks it is too spicy. Not with this recipe. Everyone thought it was perfect! Great recipe!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
Fantastic! I made these and did add a little butter and cinnamon to the sweet potatoes and black beans to the bean mixture and it is fantastic. It made about 20 burritos and the taste is so good. No cheese or anything extra needed as these are great as is. Thank you for a great recipe.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
Super easy recipe that the guys could simply not get enough of and wanted more. I used two packets of Italian Dressing mix, used minced garlic instead of garlic powder, and beef broth instead of water. I toasted rolls and served these sandwiches with sauteed onions and peppers and pepperoncinis on top. Great recipe!

Easy Paella

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
My first time making Paella and without a paella pan, it still came out quite good. Recipe was laid out extremely well and it was easy to follow and prepare. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to try this recipe and my entire family loved it.

Baked Omelet Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
Great recipe! I had plenty of leftover egg whites from making eggnog and so I used 16 egg whites and 4 whole eggs to make this. It made more than what the recipe called for, but it was also lighter. I used ham, red peppers, and sliced tomato on top and poured salsa on before baking. My husband and son loved it and they both had seconds. BTW, I forgot to grease the pan and only realized it after I had put the cheese, onions, black olives, ham, and peppers in the pan. So I simply sprayed the pan with all the items in it and it worked -- nothing stuck to the pan. Simple and delicious!

Chili con Carne II

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
Super yum! I just made this and my husband won't stop trying to sneak more before the Super Bowl. I used one can of kidney beans and one can of chickpeas. I also switched the measurements of chili powder and paprika, making the chili have more chili powder. I also used only 1 stick of cinnamon, reducing as per other users' suggestions and no cloves since I had none on hand. For the three cans of tomatoes, two had jalapenos and one mild chiles. Overall, the consistency and appearance are to die for and will make any chili lover drooling waiting to get some. Thank you for a wonderful recipe!

Coriander and Cumin Rubbed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
What can you say about a recipe that is fast and easy and you are sure to have all of the ingredients on hand? This is a perfect little recipe! Took less than a minute to get together and another minute to spread on the boneless cutlets. I let them sit while I waited for my husband to arrive and then pan fried them up. He really is not enthusiastic about pork, but he liked this and I will definitely save the recipe.

Butter Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2007
Great recipe! Instead of the egg, I used silken tofu that I whipped smooth in my mini-chopper. I definitely used too much as it was difficult for the burger to maintain its shape while cooking, but that is my fault. I used about 1/2 cup of tofu and I will definitely reduce that to about 1/4 cup. Another reviewer suggested refrigerating the burgers before cooking. I refrigerated the mixture briefly (about 15 minutes) before forming patties and breading them and then I refrigerated them again. (See photo). They browned, but were sticky, but again -- not the fault of the recipe. My husband and son, the meat eaters absolutely loved the burgers. My son ate 2! Definitely a keeper!

Deviled Ham Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
Great recipe! I decided to make a few less muffins and make them bigger. Next time I will make them as instructed and I might put half the muffin mix in, deviled ham filling, and then the rest of the muffin mix on top so that the meat is sealed inside. I ended up putting a little provolone on top just before pulling it out of the oven to keep the filling somewhat inside the muffin. I was making them for tomorrow morning's breakfast when my husband came home and stole 2 of them! He said he loved the combination of the carrots and the deviled ham and said that they would be good for dinner or breakfast. I will post another review and a new picture when I make them again.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
Super easy, tastes great. Only change is that I increased sugar to 1 cup as per previous reviewer. If you are looking for sweet tea from the South, this is not as sweet, but still is very good.

California Grilled Veggie Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2007
Incredibly good! I added 1 eggplant and 1 zucchini when grilling for a little more variety. Be careful with the bread because I took my eyes off of it for one second and they burned. Regardless, the were so good and everyone loved them.
