Pasta Primavera with Smoked Gouda

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
I really didn't like this recipe and neither did my BF. I don't know what it was about it that I didn't like...but it was sort of bland and not really liking the smoked gouda flavor. It made a HUGE pot too and feel bad throwing it away, so will try to give it away to friends or family in hopes of someone liking it.

Bell Peppers and Pasta

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
I would give this a 3.5 if I could. It was really easy, relatively healthy, and good, but just a little plain/bland. I'm not complaining, everything got eaten, but it wasn't a wow dish. I added an extra cup of bell peppers doubled the olives, and added dried basil and Italian seasoning in addition to the oregano. I would make this again for a quick weeknight meal since I usually have all the ingredients on hand.

Blueberry Flax Pancakes

Reviewed: May 9, 2010
These were really good! I was a little worried, as they looked rather dense and not so good, but YUMMY!!! mmm, VERY fluffy and even better than traditional pancakes. I topped w/ sliced strawberries and syrup. I followed the recipe exactly, but next time I will double the blueberries, as there wasn't enough. Mine made 6 pancakes.

Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
I would give this a 3.5/5. It was good, but didnt taste much like kungpao chicken, more like salty stir fry. I followed the recipe exactly except left out the chili paste since my dad is recovering from a bleeding ulcer. I also doubled the recipe, tripled the sauce, and added one onion, 1 yellow bell pepper, and 2 red bell peppers. Served over rice with a side of stir fried garlic green beans. Was good, but was a lot of prep work and not really worth it. I don't think I will make again.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
This was really yummy! I added a can of corn,but kept everything else the same. Next time I would add more liquid,as it was wayyyy too thick (my BF said it was like eating mashed potato soup!) but I watered it down w/ milk and it was fine. I would also add maybe carrots and some more celery. Overall a good comfort soup that was really good and a good way for me to use up items I always have on hand.

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
This was really good and a good base recipe for fried rice. It made A LOT! I cut out the shrimp and chicken and doubled the ham, cut out the bell pepper and instead added cabbage and green onion. I also added an extra egg. Really yummy, everyone loved it!

Cinnamon Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
No one in my family really liked this. It tasted like roasted carrots almost, not like sweet potatoes. Also, I cooked mine for close to an hour and they were still not quite soft enough. There were all eaten, but will pass next time on making these;.

Chicken a la King I

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
This was good, but SALTY! I had to add more milk/water to make it less salty. Otherwise, it was good. I used peas instead of the green bell pepper and canned chicken. Good, but will omit all the salt next time.

Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
This was a good ham and bean soup but I don't think I will be making it again. I followed the recipe to a T, but just didn't love it. It's missing the smoky flavor of a traditional ham/bean soup. I also thought it was *really* spicy and I didn't even add the hot sauce,just the can of jalapenos.

Easy Morning Glory Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
These were really good. I used 3/4 cup applesauce and 1/4 cup oil to make it healthier. I also omitted the coconut and raisins, as I dont really care for them in muffins, but I might try them next time to see if they add anything extra. Very moist and delicious! I will be making these again! I love how there are carrots and apple in them, to make it healthier. The recipe made 15 muffins for me.

Seasoned Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
This was a decent burger. A little too salty/oniony for my liking, but good nonetheless. Also, I don't like it because all the onion soup mixes had MSG in it, and I don't like to eat MSG.

Japanese Zucchini and Onions

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
This recipe was soooo good! I made this for myself and 2 other people and every bite was gone. I will double it next time. I served this rice, and salted pepper pork chop and it was sooo delicious! I left out the teriyaki sauce and used sesame oil instead of vegetable oil. This is going to become a staple side dish!

Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
This was super easy and so delicious! I will NEVER buy store bought again! This is definitely a great base recipe. I added oil and the entire bean liquid because I like my hummus not so thick. I also added paprika. Yum! This is definitely a keeper!

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2010
This is a good, healthy, easy chili recipe. It wasn't the best chili I've ever had, but it was good and comforting. No one complained, but no one raved about it either. I thought it was a little on the dry side, and it would be better with a cup of water added, and some salt. Will make this again when I'm looking for an easy, healthy dish.
