Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2014
These are delicious - the flavor of the banana is way out there. Reduced the sugar by 1/2 since the bananas were overripe. Also added a teaspoon of cinnamon and vanilla as others suggested. Love that this recipe uses melted butter - so quick and easy to throw together. I overbaked them by mistake and they dried out a little. Follow your nose and start checking when the banana muffin smell starts to make you crazy and draws your stomach to the kitchen.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2014
I'm not vegetarian but I made these for a vegetarian girlfriend who just had a baby - it's awesome because it A) makes so much B) is filling and good C) will be easy to heat after freezing D) lots of protein for a breastfeeding mom E) it's so easy for an exhausted new mom to eat when she has 30 seconds to spare. The recipe made a TON! I ran out of wheat tortillas (16 taco sized - there's enough for 18 I think) before I ran out of either filling (plan on mixing the extra beans with rice and using the sweet potatoes just as a side to a dinner). I froze them wrapped in paper towels, on a sheet tray then threw them (wrapped) into a Ziplock bag exactly as Toni mentioned. So so pleased with this recipe. UPDATE: I had so much of the bean mixture left over, I froze it for a rainy day. Just made a snack for the hubby who's always starved when he gets home from work - stuffed whole wheat pita halves with 2 spoonfuls of the bean mixture, then a sprinkle of cheddar cheese and froze them. He's so happy!

Karen's Baked Banana Stuffed French Toast

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2014
I wanted to love this but it was missing something. It's a solid 4 star recipe, not sure what would take it to a 5 star recipe....still good though!

Incredibly Cheesy Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
This came out good, but only with BBQ sauce on it. Otherwise it was strangely bland when I expected more flavor from the seasoned breadcrumbs. Also, I only had shredded cheese on hand, and that was totally lost in it, so go with the recipe and use the Colby chunks!

Tofu Sandwich Spread

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
So......I'm a meat eater but like to eat vegetarian every once in a while. I made this for lunches at work one night, and kinda cringed while crumbling the tofu (it looked like a sponge), and then when it was time to eat it a few days later, I started dreading it. Before I tossed it out, I gave it a bite. I have to say, this is PRETTY. D@MN. TASTY (so much better than the day-of). I threw in a couple of splashes of hot sesame oil. The taste is overwhelmingly soy sauce, but I don't mind that....the tofu cost 99 cents, so this is an incredibly cheap meal. BTW, the tofu took almost a day to thaw, that's' between sitting out on the counter most of the time and in the fridge!

Miso Braised Pork

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2014
The whole family loved this (though surprisingly the hubby did not). After step 1, threw everything in the slow cooker because we were going to be out all day, and after 8 hours it came out awesomely tender. It microwaved even more tender and flavorful over the next few days. No extra water was needed - it still made so much gravy - more than I know what to do with. Served over angel hair. Cut down the brown sugar by half (dad is diabetic) and didn't miss the rest - followed the recipe to a T otherwise.

Chicken Curry Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2014
Really loved this. Threw in some celery just because it's not a chicken salad to me without it, onion for the husband and a few dashes of cayenne pepper because I didn't have chili oil. The hubby chased me down to tell me how much he loved it. Always excited to have an extra poached chicken breast laying around now that I know what to do with it! Agree with the reviewer who said 1/3 cup mayo is perfect.

Southwest Chicken Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2013
We *loved* this. Great flavor, very filling and easy to make. The filling dried out a little so will add another 1/4 cup of salsa next time. Tried it with a can of Rotel instead of the salsa and loved it more. Added 2 chicken breasts (not sure how much weight that ended up being), boiled with some salt, celery, onion, carrots and peppercorns then chopped. Cooked brown rice on the side (the full time, about a full cup of cooked rice) while the chicken was going - it added 20 minutes to the recipe but it was worth it. Added an extra half teaspoon of cumin because we also love it. Need to remember to prick a few fork holes into the crust (especially around the edge of the bottom) so that it doesn't shrink up next time.

Scrumptious Chicken Vegetable Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2013
Quite good though it did not cook evenly in the microwave. The lentils were not done nor was the chicken after 25 minutes. We will do this over the stove next time. Halved the Italian seasoning (gives me heartburn) and used chicken thighs. Would like to try middle eastern spices next time - cumin and other things. But, healthy, quick and hearty. Can't complain.

Peanut Butter Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
This came out really good though I think I prefer just plain banana pancakes. They were big, fluffy, moist pancakes. I wish I had put in a teaspoon of cinnamon as others mentioned. I microwaved the peanut butter for around 35 seconds so it would stir in more easily and made sure to whisk hard while pouring it in so as to not scramble the egg with the hot peanut butter.

Mexican Lasagna Lite

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2013
This is so tasty. We used no bake lasagna noodles because we don't like corn tortillas which worked out ok (they didn't totally rehydrate even though we made a good effort to cover every piece with sauce. We only had 1 can of enchilada sauce but that was plenty. The hubby branded this 'instant classic'. Oh, and it only made us 3 servings, not 6 :(. Also spread the refried beans with an offset spatula onto the lasagna noodles.

Apple Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2013
These are really good and moist as everyone promised - the hubby gobbled up a muffin and he's not even into baked goods (unless they are really moist - on the second muffin he actually said it was his favorite thing I've ever baked)! The muffin is really sweet (especially with the topping) - I will take it down to 1 cup of brown sugar next time (especially when apples are in season). Used honeycrisp apples. LDS girl was right - only half the topping is needed, I still had left over topping (and I even took a lot of it off since it was so sweet. Threw in a tsp of cinnamon into the batter and could see half a tsp of nutmeg or so really sealing the deal for the 'apple pie'ness. I got 12 perfect muffins out of this recipe! Also made buttermilk (never keep any on hand and didn't want to buy a whole thing for it) by putting 1 tablespoon of white vinegar and topping off with milk to make a cup, and letting that sit for 5-10 minutes.

Slow Cooker Apple Cider Braised Pork

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2013
I was skeptical but the hubby and I LOVED it. It stinks b/c you need to be at home to toss/turn this - the hubby said it'd be a good 'football Sunday' meal (since he can get off the couch to turn it once every couple of hours). The sauce is incredible - could have drank it. Bought a no-sugar added apple juice.

Chocolate Clouds

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
Made this for the hubby's birthday with dark chocolate pudding. It was delicious. I wish there was more filling, but it worked out great. Really slaved trying to pipe these in - the filling didn't spread right and I'd get a corner with a ton of filling. To make the same amount of filling in each one and have it spread throughout I just opened each puff in half and spread it with an offset spatula. No bites without mousse! These are unbelievably easy and the hubby loved them.

Sweet Dijon Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2013
Loved this. Eased up a little on the apple cider vinegar (by 1/4) since others said this was too tangy, and added 2 good squeezes of honey (I don't use sugar substitute). Really delicious.

Super-Simple, Super-Spicy Mongolian Beef

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2013
Great way to use up flank steak - we froze it for 15-20 minutes to make it easier to slice. Didn't have time to marinade this but threw it into the slow cooker for 4 hours on low. Doubled the sauce (had a bigger flank steak) and use 1 tsp instead of a tbsp for crushed red pepper, then mixed the sauce after cooking with brown rice, and tossed it together with some quickly stir fried (in peanut and hot sesame oil) snow peas. I think the only thing needed is some stir fried onions for the hubby as well. Also went easy on the sugar - the hoisin was sweet enough.

Healthier Chuck's Favorite Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2013
Used Barilla plus (I can't digest wheat pasta) but followed the recipe exactly else as written. Had a bite before baking and thought 'egh' and was a little worried but was able to adjust for seasonings then. After baking and taking the first bite, the husband and I groaned - it's so cheesy and good. After gobbling down his portion, the husband said 'This mac and cheese is RIDICULOUS'. Perfect accompaniment (and so easy to make) for ribs or burgers with a salad. No one cheese stands out, and the hubby was even a little skeptical 'Hmm, cottage cheese, huh?' but it all worked out. I thought it was a little dry, not sure what I'd do to make it a little saucier - maybe milk like others have said? I agree with the others - the topping is good but not needed.

Ultimate Steak Sandwich

Didn't make the steak following the recipe (threw it in the slow cooker b/c I didn't have time), but LOVED the parmesan aioli.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
This is so delicious and easy. We got so excited after tasting it with just the balsamic and olive oil that we forgot to add the basil and white pepper. I think the white pepper would be a nice addition. Lightly sauteed some chopped tomato and yellow onion (instead of the red) tossed it in as well. Loved it warm, would probably love it cold as well.
