Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
This salad was delicious, and pretty, too. I took it to a cookout and didn't get to take home any leftovers. I did add a little more garlic than the recipe called for, and a couple shakes of basil, but otherwise stayed true to the recipe. Will definitely make this again.

Sauerbraten Klopse (Sauerbraten Meatballs)

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
My boyfriend and I didn't care for these at all. The meatballs themselves were tasty in a unique way, but the sauce had a really odd flavor, strong in vinegar and not much else. Perhaps I'm just not used to German cuisine, but either way, I will not be making this recipe again.

Mouse's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I love this recipe. Some reviewers have said the end result is too cheesy, and all I have to say is, "Whaaat?" No such thing. I didn't use the same cheeses as the recipe specified; instead, I opted for sharp cheddar, a casserole blend (Kroger brand), and a couple handfuls of a hot pepper cheese blend (also Kroger brand). It came out to 16-17oz of cheese, per the recipe measurements. As for the bread crumbs, I used plain bread crumbs instead of seasoned (it's all I had), and added a bit of garlic powder, mustard powder, salt, and pepper to taste. I've also found that lightly browning the breadcrumbs in a skillet with a bit of butter really brings out the flavor, so I will do that next time. This is a great recipe as is, but part of what I love about making mac and cheese in general is how easily it can be experimented with. So really, any melt-able cheese is fair game. Also, it tastes possibly even better warmed up as leftovers. Mmm.

Marjoram Green Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
I don't really measure ingredients when I make this, but I love the addition of marjoram to green beans. I usually add a few shakes of garlic powder as well. Simple and tasty.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
Found this recipe while looking for a way to use a 2lb cut of beef cheek (a notoriously tough cut of meat), and it was a great base recipe that gave me some great spice/herb combinations to work with. I used a few shakes of smoked paprika, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, basil, and upped the garlic to 3-4 cloves. Didn't measure the salt or pepper, but seasoned to taste. I used two bay leaves instead of one because I added more liquid than suggested. Substituted a green bell pepper for the onion because my boyfriend hates onions, also added an extra stalk of celery and omitted the carrots (didn't have any). Slow-cooked as directed, and after the four hours on medium heat, the meat can be easily cut with a spoon. Very nice, warm, brown color and hearty taste. Thank you!

Banana Cake VII

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2010
I was looking for a good banana cake recipe to use up a bunch of overripe bananas I had sitting on the counter, so I decided to give this a try. I altered it a bit by using 1/2 a cup of white sugar and 1/2 a cup of packed brown sugar, and instead of dividing it into two 9-inch pans, I just used one and cooked it a bit longer. Then, topped it off with a simple buttercream frosting I whipped up on a whim. Turned out fantastic! It tastes pretty much like a less dense banana bread. Will definitely be making this again.
