Winter Squash Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Great way to up the health factor in bread. I used spaghetti squash, and although the rolls came out very moist, they didn't have much flavor. This would GREATLY benefit from the addition of herbs or maybe extra sugar for a slightly sweet roll. I think this would be much better with butternut squash since that's slightly sweeter like sweet potato.

Slow-Cooked Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
So easy to make. I used turkey sausage instead of ham, and I only had a little bit of milk left so I made up the difference with soy milk without any distortion of taste. I had no problems with the milk separating...make sure you have your crockpot set on low.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2010
I've tried this recipe a couple of times now, and it's just ok. It's slightly chewy but not soft-n-chewy like Subway cookies. The taste isn't as buttery as other cookies I've tried. It's just ok.

Cinnamon Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
When I tasted it the day it was baked, it was awful...tasted like overspiced cake mix. The flavor improves dramatically after 2 days. I also skipped the brown sugar because I was worried about it tasting too sweet. I turned this into a stacked cake with whipped cream as the filling which toned down the cloying aftertaste. Tastes like spice cake.

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
I like the creaminess of this dish. I had to use refried beans since I ran out of black beans, and I added taco seasoning to flavor the meat. Oh yeah, I also added corn since any Mexican dish would not be complete without it. Very, very good.

Butternut Squash Supreme

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I've never had butternut squash before, so this was a pleasant epicurean adventure. I made some changes because of ingredients I wanted to use. I crumbled leftover cornbread into the squash mixture like Boston Market, and to counter the blandness that has been mentioned, I used a sleeve of garlic flavored crackers. Butternut squash has a somewhat sweet taste to it like a sweet potato, and this contrasts well with the saltiness of the cheese and crackers. Definitely a keeper.

Pasta with Peas and Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
I had 3 servings!!! I had to use elbow pasta since that's all I had, and I added extra Parmesan cheese in addition to red pepper flakes for a kick. This was sooo easy to make. All my sauce got sucked up by the pasta, so do not expect this to be a saucy dish. Mine was NOT dry though. The Italian sausage adds a lot of flavor too. Great way to use up those frozen peas sitting in the fridge.

Orange Chiffon Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
Mmmm...so light and fluffy (I beat the heck out of the pre-flour mixture). Like everyone else, I used orange juice to replace the water. I also decreased the sugar to 1 cup without any seeming difference. The orange flavor was overwhelming, so I would reduce the amount of all zest by half. I baked this in two 6x3 in pans and had to bake for 70 minutes @ 300F. The batter rises well, so I had to cut off the domes to level it, but that just meant I was able to "taste test." :)

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2009
This was a great soup. I think the peanut butter overpowered the dish, so I'd either omit it or reduce it by half next time. I also replaced the cumin with madras curry powder because that's what I had. The soup was very smooth once I blended it. Soothing enough for any winter's day.

Chocolate Chip Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I ended up with chocolate bread like everyone else. I used frozen chips, but that didn't help. This has a great taste, but I think this recipe would best be made on the dough setting so I can mix in the chocolate chips separately.

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2009
I used a combo of white and orange sweet potatoes. This is a recipe that lends a lot of flexibility in that you don't really need to measure anything. Just season to taste.

Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
I wish I had added more lemon juice and slightly less sugar to my blueberry mixture. Blueberries were in season here, so they were sweeter than usual (yummy!). I would've liked more of a contrast between the ice cream's sweetness and the blueberry tartness. I also made the graham crust in the recipe, but this can be simplified by buying a pre-made crust and breaking it into pieces. I also added some cinnamon to the blueberries and graham crackers. Very tasty!

Oven Baked Jambalaya

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This was very tasty but be warned that this makes A LOT! I didn't have ham and eliminated the broth since I was cooking the rice separately. There was plenty of juice from the veggies to make this like a very thick stew. Also, I cooked everything in my cast iron dutch oven then took it straight to the oven for baking (reduces cleanup).

Tex-Mex Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
This was good, but it tasted a lot like salsa. If I had made it thicker (more flour, less broth/milk), and added chicken and black beans, this would be great as a creamy enchilada stuffing.

Southwest Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I didn't use any taco seasoning as others suggested because the chicken sausage I used (the only protein I had) was plenty salty. I also used chicken broth instead of water. This is a recipe that lends itself to using any type of meat and adding more veggies if you like.

Chocolate Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
Ummm...if you follow the recipe exactly it's not very spectacular. Tastes just like regular cake mix except a little more moist (stick to your mouth moist). I'm not surprised that the rave reviews are mostly from people who used pre-spiced canned pumpkin. I'm a die-hard fan of cinnamon and chocolate like what you get from Mexican chocolate cake. Adding spices to this recipe does jazz it up, otherwise it's just plain.

Pillow-Soft Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
The dough was so sticky, and to prevent it from sticking all over the place, I had to add an extra cup of flour. The taste was alright, but I'll stick with "unbelievable rolls" from this site.

Tomato Bisque III

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
I would've liked for this to be creamier, but otherwise very tasty. It probably could've benefited from some more seasoning like basil.

Pineapple Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
This was a great recipe. I accidentally read the instructions wrong and added an entire 15oz can of pineapples...I'm glad I did this because it lent more pineapple flavor! I also added 3 tablespoons of pure vanilla (the alcohol keeps it from getting rock hard). This makes a lot of ice cream, so you may want to halve the recipe if you have a 2 quart machine.
