French Apple Tart (Tarte de Pommes a la Normande)

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
This recipe is delicious. I've made it several times. The only thing I've changed is to use apple jelly rather than apricot preserves because my family finds it too sour. I've also added dried cranberries to the jelly and that is not only a beautiful presenttion but also& a nice flavor combo.

Mediterranean Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
I made a vegetarian version for a party and it was great! I also used a mixture of white and red quinoa which made for a very pretty presentation. My guests, most of which are picky meat lovers, thought it was fantastic. The best part was trying to explain what quinoa is, lol. Have made several times since.

Coconut-Lime Cheesecake with Mango Coulis

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
I would give this 6 stars if I could! Made for a friend's party and everyone was so impressed. Delicious as is but I would double the crust next time because it was kinda skimpy in my pan. Served with rum-scented whipped cream and topped with lime slices. It looked like I bought it from a bakery

Chocolate Lovers' Favorite Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
So easy & super delish! Followed recipe to the T. 1 recipe made a bundt cake plus a dozen cupcakes. Topped with a vanilla glaze. Will definitely make this again. Endless ways to vary this. Might be great with dried cherries :-)

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Perfect recipe - easy and delish! And not as spicy as i feared. I used pickled jalapenos since that's what i had, and i cut out the veins & seeds. Just the right amount of zing. And go through the effort to bake this.

Marshmallow Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Fun to make with kids. We made them during the holidays & called them snowballs. I added pretzel pieces & candied pecans to the popcorn & that was delicious. Make sure to use fresh marshmallows or they will come out kind of hard.

Simple White Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2014
Made this for a baby shower and everyone raved about it! Not overly sweet, not too dense and but kept together nicely without crumbling. I topped with my own buttercreme frosting. I needed two 9x13" layers so I made 1 1/2 of the recipe and after 30 minutes in my oven it was perfect. The only thing I changed was to add about extra 1/4 cup milk because I thought the batter was too thick. I was so proud of this cake!

Curried Mustard Greens with Kidney Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
This was so quick & easy, and a great way for me to use the mustard greens from my farm share. I wanted a stronger flavor though so I about doubled the amount of curry powder and added a couple cloves of garlic. Yum!

Peanut Butter Easter Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Yummy! I made them first per the recipe, but next time I will try cutting back on the sugar, as I think they don't need quite this much.
