Whole Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
these were not bad-other whole wheat pancakes I've made have turned out super rubbery and with weird textures. these were relatively fluffy in comparison. I used 1.5 Tbsp cane sugar and chopped strawberries and added 2 Tbsp ground flaxseeds. I also ended up using way more milk to get a good consistency-maybe 1.5 cups or more. We still added peanut butter and syrup on top and it was a great breakfast :)

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
this was easy and good-but putting the two halves on top of each other at the end made a big mess and left one half less tasty than the other-I wonder if it would work just as well just leaving them open side up?

Clark Gable Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
these pancakes were a little strange...they cooked to a crisp on the outside but were uncooked on the inside. once I got them mostly fully cooked, my husband still didn't love the texture. and good thing I didn't half the recipe-I only got 5 normal-sized pancakes out of the recipe! I can't imagine how small you'd have to make them to get 10 pancakes. the taste was pretty good, though-I used 1.5 Tbsp baking powder, used 1/4 cup whole wheat flour, and added 1 tsp vanilla, 1 Tbsp sugar, and some cinnamon.

Peanut Butter Kiss Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
These were pretty good. They're made with sugar, so everyone should have known what they were getting into with regard to sweetness and texture :P I used the 3 kinds of sugar and organic natural peanut butter. I baked for 8 minutes, then added the kisses, then baked for 2 more minutes. I let them cool/harden for 2 minutes before putting them on a wire rack. They weren't extremely peanutty, but they were sweet easy to make. Next time I might try the more nutritious (and more complicated) version just to see what the difference is.

Apple and Pecan Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
this was okay. using the store-bought stuffing mix was easy, but I wasn't sure whether to add celery and onion like the package said. I thought it basically tasted like regular stuffing with some apples added (couldn't taste the pecans at all)-which is really what it was. I was looking for something more. but it tasted fine for what it was-everyone ate it.

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2010
this was so easy to make and absolutely delicious. I didn't change a thing and used an oktoberfest beer. it tasted best when warm-even after being microwaved ;) it's super dense, though, so very filling!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
I thought this was pretty good-the honey-mustard sauce was nice and moist and the bread crumbs added their own flavor. I used regular mustard because I didn't have Dijon, and I left out the pecans because I didn't have any-I'm sure they would have added to the flavor, but it was good without. The only weird thing was that instead of cooking through in 20 or so minutes, the fish was still kind of mushy and the bread crumbs on top weren't crispy. But it could be my oven :P Update: 2nd attempt was better (I think)-I used Dijon mustard and my husband found an old bag of pecans and I think they really added to the flavor. This time we cooked for 12 minutes and the salmon was almost overdone :P And there were still extra crumbs on top. Tasty, though!

Applesauce

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
great, easy recipe! I also found that my applesauce was already sweet-but they were slightly tart, so I added just 2 tbsp of sugar. delicious while warm, kind of weird sour taste the 2nd day, but that went away and it has lasted well in the fridge :) I hope I never have to buy jarred applesauce again.

Aloo Phujia

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
this was great! I read the reviews saying it would taste better after it sat a while, so I made it early and let it sit the rest of the day. it was a great side dish and it wasn't too spicy at all.

Beer Brats

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
I live in germany and was looking for a basic bratwurst recipe-this one worked great, even without a grill. I made them twice (half each time)-the second time I only added half the red pepper flakes and I was still crying as I ate :P since we don't have a grill, we just heated some butter in a cast iron pan on the stove while the brats were boiling, then put them in the pan, turning once-they needed less time than a grill would. delicious, but spicy!

this was easy and great-and we didn't even have enough tomato sauce.

Zippy Summer Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
I'm not sure the flavors came together...they tasted a bit too lemony to me. But they were super spicy! My tongue was tingling! I served them with quinoa.

Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Balsamic Vinegar

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I followed the directions and marinated for 30 minutes, then tried to cook until 155 degrees...it cooked for almost an hour and still didn't get up to 155 :P Maybe I didn't have the grill hot enough...but also the marinade wasn't really that strong. It was really easy, though, so I'm sure I'll try it again-I'll probably add more garlic and marinate longer and turn up the grill. I'm just scared it wil dry out even more...

Shrimp over Cheese Grits

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2010
Absolutely delicious! I cooked 3 strips of bacon, then added the vegetables and the shrimp. I also just followed the directions on the grits package (not instant) and added the cheese (cheddar) at the end. Such great flavors, even without the hot sauce (although I'm sure my husband liked it better with the spicy!).

Oatmeal Waffles

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2010
I made my own buttermilk (milk & vinegar) and used honey instead of molasses. The mix was a weird texture-liquid but with chunks of oats. I made pancakes and I have to say I wasn't that impressed. I thought I'd be happy with the "heathiness" of the recipe, but I didn't really feel like it added anything to the meal.

Rich Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
This was okay-I halved it and added 2 tbsps of milk at a time (but did not need to exceed the 1/2 cup needed). It was super sugary, and I probably could have cut the amount of powdered sugar. I made a very tall 2-tiered 9" cake and kept piling the icing on...and I still had to eat some plain to avoid waste-next time I'm definitely going to make cupcakes or something to use up the extra icing. Kind of felt sick after eating so much sugar...

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2010
I love a good chocolate cake-even a dense one, but this wasn't what I expected. Granted, I didn't have 3 9" cake pans (who makes a 3-tiered birthday cake anyway?), so I made it in 2 and had to cook longer to get the middle not to be soupy. But overall, the cake wasn't crumbly but wasn't mosit, light, and fluffy either. Everyone thought it was good (but rich), but I don't think I'll make it again. Definitely don't eat it by itself-I relied on icing to make it a bit more moist (still not enough for me).

Slow Cooker Split Pea Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2010
I made this with beef smoked sausage, 3 cups of chicken broth, and 6 cups of water-and it was WAY too much liquid. It also didn't have any flavor! I cooked it longer to try to boil out the liquid and it ended up making the peas disappear-so we were eating pea-colored watery soup with no flavor. I was really disappointed, but my husband and mom liked it as is for some reason. I liked how easy the recipe was, but if I try it again, I'll use less liquids, less potato, and add some extra spices-or even just salt and pepper.

Pork Chalupas

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2010
absolutely delcious recipe! I had to ask the butcher for a 4 lb roast, but it was well worth it (I can't imagine ever needing a 9 lb roast!). I didn't need to add any water to the beans (I did soak them overnight), so it really just needed time to cook. the meat was perfectly cooked after 8 hrs and shredded really easily. I served over fritos, as I learned from my mom, and added diced tomato, chopped onion, cheddar cheese, and salsa. next time (and there WILL be a next time!), I'll either ask for a smaller roast or add more beans (just to up the ratio). I'll also probably use less salt, since I serve it with chips. and, finally, I'll invite a crowd! we have a LOT of leftovers! (but I'm so excited to eat them!)

California Sherry Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
I was pretty disappointed with this recipe-especially after all the time it took to prepare the vegetables! I added mushrooms and doubled the sherry and broth, served with quinoa and scalloped potatoes...the chicken was okay and so were the vegetables-but neither had much taste! after emptying my sherry bottle into this dish, I expected something more flavorful.
