Summer Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2012
Like most, I made adjustments to this. I left out the carrots because I just hate cooked carrots. Instead I added yellow summer squash and I used considerably less of it + zucchini. I sauteed the veggies in a bit of olive oil with salt and pepper. I added in cubed chicken too. This is a super hearty, creamy, filling dish. Absolutely delicious and rich in flavor. My only complaint is it tasted a little TOO onion-y what with the stuffing and all. Tasted similar to eating a box of stuffing by itself. Next time I make this I'll be sure to reduce or even leave out the onion altogether. The stuffing provides ample flavor. Another bonus - this reheats well! Dinner for a week? Whoo hoo!

Baked Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
One of my friends LOVES honey mustard, so for our weekly Girls Night, I decided to try this recipe. I cut the ingredients in half since I was only making 3 pieces of chicken. Other than that, the recipe was followed exactly. I noticed many other reviewers used dijon mustard - but I decided to try it with standard yellow. I cooked covered with foil for the first portion of cooking time and uncovered the rest - turning once or twice during the process. This dish came out super succulent and tasty! The flavor was not over-powering of the chicken, which I liked. A perfect healthier option for dinner.

Blueberry Streusel Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
This was my first time making blueberry muffins from scratch - and boy, was I impressed with how easy this recipe was to follow! The steusel came out way too moist - it was more of a coating than a crumble - but it still tasted great. I agree with other reviewers that the muffins are more cake-like than anything else. But they are the perfect amount of sweet - and due to the density of the mix I could probably use this base to make a cake in the future! All in all? Super yummy.

Snickerdoodles IV

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
At first I wasn't sure as to how these would turn out - but oh my gosh! Deeeeeelicioussss! I did modify a bit... who doesn't? I didn't have cream of tartar, so I left that out. What I threw in was two tablespoons of brown sugar, cut way way back on the salt, and added a dash of vanilla. I also added some brown sugar as well as ginger to the coating. What a perfect treat for this rainy day!

The Best Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2011
I was really excited to find such a basic recipe, but I had to make modifications based on what I had in the house. To start, I made muffins instead of a loaf... I couldn't find my loaf pan! I only had two bananas handy, so I added a half cup of applesauce for flavor, as well as some cinnamon. Almost as an afterthought, I added some frozen blueberries to the tops of the muffins before baking. Fruity, dense, soft, moist muffins were the result. Very yummy! Great for breakfast.

Potato and Cheddar Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2010
I didn't follow the recipe precisely... I used Colby Jack cheese instead of cheddar, and accidentally added more rosemary than I meant to. If I decide to make this again, I will definitely use cheddar. Also, the consistency seemed to be more like a corn chowder than a creamy soup. Not sure why mine came out like that, but the boyfriend loved it anyway. Hopefully I can make a better batch the second time around.
