Applesauce Loaf Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2014
Definitely a keeper! I skimped on the raisins and wish I'd done the full cup. As normal, I did ~60% of the sugar, so those nice burst of sweetness from the raisins is pretty key. Overall, pretty easy to make and pretty yummy considering there's only 2 tbsp. butter. I also made a quick streusel (butter, sugar, finely chopped pecans, flour, cinnamon) which was nice on top.

Easy Indian Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2014
Pretty tasty and simple enough to make, but it was too much heavy cream for me and I could probably cut back on the butter some as well. The only complaint is that it dirtied a lot of pans/pots so perhaps I'll caramelize onions in the pot before simmering the sauce and maybe I'll cook the chicken in the sauce as well instead of in the oven.

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2014
Easy to make and pretty yummy after toasting the orzo and cooking in chicken broth.

Chicken and Bok Choy Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2014
Omitted celery, subbed brown rice instead of potatoes and added grated ginger, shiso leaf and some spicy soy sauce mixture to add some heat and more flavor.

Jalapeno Hummus

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2014
Followed the recipe pretty accurately, except I used Thai curry paste instead of dry Indian curry and I probably poured too much pickled jalapeno juice in since the ingredients were getting stuck in the blender, but it was pretty good and very spicy! I made this in the Vitamix and it was very smoothly blended.

Thai Spiced Barbecue Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2014
Made this with Thai Red Curry Paste and stir fried it and it was quite spicy! Not my favorite recipe for shrimp, unfortunately.

Queijadas

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
Made 1/3 of the batch (6 servings) and wish I'd made more since they were pretty easy and I'd already dirtied the blender and they were pretty tasty. I had the Splenda baking sugar so I used that (50% of the recommended amt of normal sugar). I thought these were pretty sweet but I don't know if it's cause I subbed in Splenda sugar or because it called for too much sugar for my tastes?

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2014
3.5 stars. I halved the recipe for my 9 inch square pan (cooked for just over an hour) and used 1 cup whole wheat flour & 1.25 cup AP flour. Added a handful of whole pecans which I could take or leave. I also added a handful of large dark chocolate chips and I would definitely add chocolate chips next time, milk or dark.

Seared Scallops with Jalapeno Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2014
Scallops were fantastic but the dressing was just ok. I like vinegar and I thought it was too vinegary. The orange went surprisingly well with the scallop and vinaigrette, but next time I'd tweak the vinaigrette more to my tastes.

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2014
Just ok. Agreed the fresh lemon juice was necessary and I liked adding a bit of goat cheese in place of the sour cream. I think this is just personal taste and the recipe is fine and personally, I'm not a huge fan of these kinds of soup.

Molten Chocolate Cakes With Sugar-Coated Raspberries

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2014
Not too sweet. And in my oven that runs hotter than normal, 8 minutes was a tiny bit overdone.

Grandma's Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2013
Pretty good and easy! The thing that took the most time was chopping the garlic, carrots, celery and onion and also running to the store to pick up a rotisserie chicken. I sautéed the veggies first, pulled the meat and added the broth and bones to the pot. I also boiled the noodles separate and added them and 1/2 the meat to the pot after fishing the bones out. I skipped the cornstarch and poultry seasoning and added much less salt than the recipe listed.

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
Doubled the cream and used slightly less butter than called for and it turned out fine. Almost too much sauce in fact. Overall, pretty good and easy to make. Quite creamy though!

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2013
Pretty good, but I did alter it. I did 1/2 whole wheat flour and 1/2 AP flour. I used 1/2 cup of leftover milky whey mixed with 1/2 cup whole milk as the buttermilk and used big swedish sugar as the topping. Next time, I'll follow the recipe and use the topping including cinnamon.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
I made this cake to try to use up some leftover milky whey after making ricotta! So for the cup of buttermilk, I put 1/2 cup whole milk and 1/2 cup of my leftover whey. So I didn't follow the recipe entirely but the cake turned out pretty good. Nothing spectacular but it was easy enough, so I suppose I could make it again sometime.

Oven Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2013
Followed the directions to a T and this tasted ok but took a good bit of time, so I doubt I'd make this again.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2013
Pretty darn good! I didn't have spinach so I substituted in lots of fresh kale. And used homemade dried rosemary instead of fresh. I didn't boil my noodles beforehand and it turned out fine. I kind of liked the feta on top but I don't think it needed it. With it, the dish was pretty salty and I didn't add any salts to my sauteed veggies or anywhere.

Crepes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
The batter was too thick to make really thin crepes, but it tasted pretty good! The only additions I made was a pinch of cinnamon and a dash of vanilla.
