Pro Ganache

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2013
This was pretty good. I used 50% chocolate bars, chopped into small slivers. They melted easily under the hot cream. I didn't have any plastic wrap, so I used aluminum foil and pushed it down right on top-it worked great! I let it sit out overnight and cool, then the next morning I whipped it a bit with a hand mixer and used it to frost a birthday cake. It was a great consistency and quite tasty without being as blatantly sugary as other homemade frostings (which just taste like powdered sugar to me). All in all a success!

Hearty Turkey Stew with Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
This was just okay. I was looking for a recipe for a turkey breast...so I tried it. But it didn't have a lot of flavor. I ended up doubling the vegetables and adding minced garlic, oregano, parsley, basil, salt, pepper, and a bay leaf. It wasn't anything special.

Chocolate Strawberry Banana Milkshake

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
This was good. I was looking for a smoothie recipe that didn't require yogurt, since I was out. I hate using only 1/2 a banana...what do you do with the other half?? So I used 1 banana, 1 cup of mixed frozen berries, the same amounts of milk and vanilla, and 2 Tbsp cocoa powder instead of drink mix. I didn't add any sugar and it was fine-I made it to be healthy, not unhealthy ;) It had a good, thick texture and a nice taste.

Veronica's Hot Spinach, Artichoke and Chile Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
This was very tasty. The only change I made was to use 1 fresh jalapeno. I probably could have used 2, but I was worried that my book club ladies wouldn't like the extra heat. We ate it warm with Tostitos scoops chips.

Authentic Chinese Egg Rolls (from a Chinese person)

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
Fantastic. Delicious. And such a fun project. I used the Chinese Pork Tenderloin recipe on this site. My husband doesn't love eggs, so we left out that part. I used the smallest cabbage I could find, 1 large carrot, and left out the mushrooms and MSG. This recipe only used 1/2 a package of wrappers, so I had to throw the rest away :( Also, the package said to use a mixture of flour & water to seal the egg rolls, so I did that instead of using the egg white. And 4 cups of oil isn't really necessary-just use enough to cook about 4 egg rolls at once. These were so tasty (especially with a homemade sweet & sour sauce on the side) and leftovers were easily re-crisped in the oven :)

Chinese Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2013
This was tasty and easy. I didn't have sherry, so I used sherry vinegar. I left out the black beans-no asian stores near me :( I cut the tenderloin into "matchsticks" to use with the Authentic Chinese Egg Roll recipe on this site. Delicious!

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
This was pretty good. I liked the flavors, but it could have used something more...can't decide what. Maybe more garlic? I thought at first it was going to be too strong, but then you add so much milk and cream and it drowned it out a bit. If I make it again, I might decrease the amount of milk/cream-it was just a bit too creamy for us (not so good on the stomach). But again, the flavors were great.

South Georgia Biscuits

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2012
I liked the method-no pastry blender or roller needed! They cooked up great and tasted great, too. The only thing I changed was to use skim milk instead of whole because that's what I needed to use up-probably they'd taste even better with real milk :) I love how quick and easy this was-will definitely make again.

Cheesy Quinoa Pilaf with Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2012
This was just okay. I made double for 2 people and there was plenty. But it had a tart flavor-I think the pine nuts and the lemon juice combined to make it a weird flavor. Also, I stuffed that cup with spinach and it was definitely not enough. I was expecting (stupidly, I guess) something like the picture above...with the quinoa kind of hidden by the other tasty ingredients. But it was just quinoa and cheese (I used Parmesan) with a tiny bit of spinach and that super tart taste. Not great.

Healing Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
This was tasty-great for a cold night. I don't use bouillon, so I used 2 cups chicken broth, 2 cups vegetable broth, & 4 cups water ;) I misread the recipe and added plain diced tomatoes by mistake, but countered it by adding 1 tsp Italian seasoning (1/2 with the salt & pepper, 1/2 with the tomatoes). The flavor was great, especially with a little Parmesan a baguette. But it's not filling enough for a full meal-I calculated that 2 cups is only 160 calories :(

Baked Beans II

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
These were great-and it was so helpful that they could cook on the stove (and relatively quickly) while the meat was in the oven. I ended up only putting in half of the brown sugar, ketchup, and mustard and we thought it had lots of flavor. Just finishing up the leftovers now!

Coleslaw

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
This wasn't like normal coleslaw, so don't go into it thinking it will taste the same! But it had an interesting flavor and went well with ribs and baked beans. I used apple cider vinegar and about half the amount of oil (I used sunflower oil) and half the amount of sugar. I wish I could have left out the sugar altogether, but it was necessary to counter the tartness of the vinegar. Altogether a good recipe for non-mayo-eating people who like BBQ :)

Simple Roasted Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2012
This was just what I was looking for-a quick and easy way to cook a butternut squash. I cut it up pretty small then just dumped it on the sheet and cooked for maybe 15 minutes (I think my oven runs hot). So easy and delicious.

Roasted Okra

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2012
This just didn't have a lot of flavor. And it was still a little slimy. But it did the job-I needed the okra cooked and quick. It was serve-able, but not delicious.

Black Beans and Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
This was simple and tasty. We seasoned the pork chops with chipotle pepper, a little cumin, and pepper. I drained my can of beans because I don't like eating the heavy-sodium/preservatives sauce, so I just added 1/2 cup water to the mix. I cooked them for about 20 minutes, flipping once and mixing everything in. I served with/on top of brown rice. Good flavors!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2012
This was simple and delicious-the best hummus we've made in a while! It was a bit dense, especially after being in the refrigerator, but that's nothing some olive oil can't cure ;)

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2012
This was good! I used baking potatoes and cut them into chunks. I took the chicken out with about 15 minutes left and just let the potatoes roast for the rest of the time. I used dried herbs and had no problems-pretty darn good!

Vegan Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2012
These were good! I had no milk and needed to feed my husband-these did the trick! I used 1/4 cup wheat flour and added about 1/8 cup more water. They were kind of thick, but cooked well and were nice and fluffy and tasty. It's great to have a good back-up!

Steak Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
This was pretty good and easy. I used 1 cup of beef stock instead of bouillon/water and I added 1/4 cup brown sugar. I used a mix of carrots and celery (used up whatever I had) and served over brown rice. I found it to be tasty and saucy-definitely not too much cornstarch. I'll definitely try it again!

Banana Muffins II

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
These were simple and great tasting. I wanted a simple recipe and this was it! I had to make 1/3 batch because I only had 1 super ripe banana (who has 3 at a time, anyway??), so since you can't add 1/3 of an egg, I used 1/3 of a "flaxseed egg" (1 tsp ground flaxseed, 3 tsp water, mix & let sit 2 minutes-it didn't have a great texture but I put it in anyway and it worked great!). I didn't add anything to this recipe and I made 4 large muffins, which cooked for about 20 minutes and were very tasty :)
