Roasted Garlic Lemon Broccoli

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2013
Roasted broccoli is always good, but this needed double the oil. And the lemon juice was interesting.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
The middle of the pancake was raw and took too long to cook, so I ended up making VERY flat odd cupcakes. Tasted ok, but I don't know if I'd make it again.

Quick Berry Milkshake

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2012
Should have read the reviews saying you don't need the ice. It was way too icy. And prob too much vanilla too. This didn't taste like a delicious milkshake made with ice cream. Wouldn't make this again.

Coconut Macaroons III

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
Pretty easy/quick. I halved the recipe and got probably 20 golf ball sized cookies. Followed the recipe, except used a splash of vanilla & almond extracts. Also, some reviews recommended putting the dough in the fridge, and I thought I should have since the dough started getting stickier and stickier, but after making them, I realized the ones that didn't look like nice and clean were much prettier and yummier (since the ends that stuck out were nice and crunchy).

Apple Squares

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
Cooked for 25 minutes, made the recipe as specified, except 1/3 whole wheat flour instead of all AP flour, and extra apple (since 1 apple is ~ 1 cup of chopped apple, not 1/2 cup) and didn't have brown sugar, so used all white sugar and used probably only 3/4 of the sugar listed.

Cranberry Sauce with Jalapeno Peppers

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
Cut sugar 25% which I think was the right amount. Also used a splash of Grand Marnier and a splash of vodka right after cooking it down. I don't know if it needed the liquor. I used 2 tiny, very spicy homegrown jalapenos and it had a good heat level.

Fresh Semolina and Egg Pasta

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2012
This turns out ok but it's so dry at first and it's quite difficult to work with. I'm going to find a new recipe for my pastas.

Veronica's Hot Spinach, Artichoke and Chile Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
Made a 1/2 recipe with extra spinach and artichoke packed in oil, not water. Omitted canned green chiles and canned jalapeno and used 1 SPICY homegrown jalapeno, very finely chopped, instead, but I couldn't taste the heat unfortunately. I also think my pan was too big for a 1/2 recipe and it was dried out a bit. Next time, I'll try a full recipe in the same small blue glass pan or find an even smaller pan.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Followed the recipe exactly (except cooked ~30 mins rather than 20 mins) and it was pretty good. Next time I might try adding fresh thyme or maybe more cayenne since I didn't think it tasted spicy at all.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2012
Cut back on the sugar and added ~1/2 cup rum-soaked raisin. Delicious!

Jumbo Fluffy Walnut Apple Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
Pretty good. The only changes I made were 1 cup sugar instead of 1.25, used slivered almonds instead of walnuts & adding some oats to the cinnamon crumble.

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2012
Pretty yummy and easy. I made it with 2 peaches, a handful of blueberries, and a big handful of strawberries, sliced. I might not waste the strawberries next time. I'd also cut back on the sugar (try 1/2 cup not 3/4), add oats, flax, maybe wheatgerm? I also used the fancy big swedish sugar crystals on top, but they disappeared into the bubbling mixture while baking.

Cinnamon Ice Cream II

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2012
Followed the recipe to a T and it was too rich for my tastes, but it was good on the side of pecan pie. Not sure if I'd make it again, but next time, I'd use fat-free milk instead of 2% and maybe less sugar. I also used the small pot to cook the custard but should have used a flat wooden utensil to stir instead of the metal spoon since there was a layer of cooked egg on the bottom of the pot.

Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2012
Easy and pretty darn good. Like another reviewer said, tasted like cheese blintzes without the effort. Only modification I made was to add a dash of salt. Next time, try subbing whole wheat flour, and add some ground flax. And add fruit on top! I tried my first batch with maple syrup and also with cherry jam, but I thought the jam was too sweet.
