Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
I have not even let this sit overnight yet, and it is DARN GOOD! I can't wait to see what it tastes like after 'mellowing' overnight. I have a bottle of pinot grigio in the fridge, so I'll be making a white sangria with this recipe next. I did not have the frozen lemonade, I forgot to pick it up when I was at the store, so I doubled the Orange juice and so far, so GOOD!

Kraut Bierocks

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Made this recipe, which generated about 12 nice sized buns. My husband and I devoured them within 2 days. I am going to keep this recipe for sure, and will also try using the dough for BBQ beef, Broccoli and cheese, Ham and cheese filled buns. I cannot wait to try other fillings in this bread. Like most of the other reviewers, I did have to add additional flour, and I found that another 3/4 of a cup was perfect. In addition, I did not have the dried milk -so I used 1 and 1/2 cups of water, and 1/2 cup of half and half to fill that dairy void. These were REALLY good. I can't wait to fill the bread with other things as well!

Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
Ohhh boy. These are alot of work, but they are extremely tasty, especially with a little butter and salt. This recipe is very time consuming, and for me at least - took longer than the prep time listed here - about an hour to get the dough ready, and then roll and cut all the bits of dough. With that being said, they are worth all the hard work and elbow grease. (I upped the garlic to 3 cloves , because I love garlic) They were VERY VERY yummy.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2011
I first tried this recipe a week ago, and I am now waiting for my 3rd pot pie to finish cooking in the oven. I LOVE chicken pot pie, but my husband doesn't, so he was reluctant to agree to it a week ago. Right now, he is patiently waiting for this bad boy to finish cooking as well. For a guy who doesnt like pot pie to say that this is the best dish he's ever eaten - is saying alot. The only adjustments that I make are: I use half and half or heavy cream instead of milk, which makes the gravy mixture extra creamy and rich. I also add 3 cloves of garlic to the onions while they are cooking - just because I love garlic. ..and finally, I use celery salt instead of celery seed - and then just omit the salt. Lets just say this is not an 8 serving pot pie in my house, it's 2 serviings and there are no leftovers. We aren't overweight, but if we keep making this heavenly dish, we will be soon!! AMAZING Recipe, I can't say enough about it.

Naan

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2010
I have had this in my recipe box for like 6 months, but I have been too intimidated to try it. This was not only the best naan I have ever eaten, but probably the best bread I've ever made. I have found with all the bread recipes I have used, there is not enough salt, so i used 2 and 1/2 tsp of salt. I didnt have any milk, so I used the same measure of heavy cream and they were perfect! I made these in the pan (*medium heat) rather than on the grill, and added chopped cilantro to the butter I basted with. When I make these again, I will probably add garlic to my basting butter as well. The only downside to these naan's were that I could only eat 2 because I was so full from my dinner. If I had the time, I would rave about these all night; they were that good. Amazing recipe, I wish I could give it 10 stars.

Whole Wheat Snickerdoodles I

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2010
This recipe is great. I love the idea of actually getting some fiber in my diet from a cookie. My only complaint is that I could'nt stop eating them, and now I have a stomach ache! Great recipe- saved to my recipe box! Thanks!

Wheat Crackers

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This was my first time making these, but I tweaked it a little. First, I made half of the recipe. I added 2 tbsp of whole flaxseeds, and 2 tbsp of flaxseed meal. I increased the oil an extra tbsp to make up for the extra dry ingredients. I used a cookie cutter to cut out shapes rather than cutting score lines. I saved this recipe for sure, and I will be using this "base" for all kinds of crackers. Next time, I will probably add rosemary and garlic.... that sounds yummy!! 5 Star recipe!

Simple Carnitas

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
This was awesome! The only things that I changed were that I used 1 orange, and 1 lime in the water rather than 2 oranges. I think the lime adds a nice tart flavor, it was AWESOME! Thankfully we have leftovers to eat for dinner tomorrow, because this was GREAT! After shredding, I squirted with lime juice and added a little additional cumin, to add some citrus flavor and make it a little browner in color, cause it looked kinda pale when it came out of the water... Great job, Ken - This was amazing!!

School Lunchroom Cafeteria Rolls

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
I made these rolls today as a 'trial run' while trying to find a winning recipe for thanksgiving dinner. This is it! Although when I make them tomorrow, I will add about an extra 1/2 tsp of salt or so.... I brushed some melted butter on these before baking to add a light 'shine' to them, and to encourage browning. These are AMAZING! I can't wait to hear the accolades!

Ronaldo's Beef Carnitas

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
I modified this recipe to make a "standard" roast, rather than mexican. Instead of the can of green chiles, I grated 2 onions in the cheese grater. I added 1 tbsp marsala cooking wine, 4 cloves of crushed garlic, and 1 tsp each of rosemary and thyme. I rubbed the mixture on the meat and wrapped in foil as the recipe calls for. My husband said this was the BEST roast he has ever eaten in his life. Thank you for the guidance! I'll be wrapping my roasts in foil from now on!

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I have been on an indian food kick, and since we have been spending hundreds of dollars at our local indian restaurant, I decided to try a few recipes myself. I did follow some of the other reviewers recommendations, and I modified some of the spicyness, but this was GREAT. I did add 1 tsp of coriander, 1 tsp of cayenne pepper and a splash of coconut milk to the mix. I didnt have tomato puree, so I used 1/2 small can of tomato paste, a pinch of salt and 3/4 cup of water to use in its place. I used whole milk instead of half & half to save on calories. I also added about 1/4 cup of crushed cashews in place of the corn starch. My husband always orders Chicken Makhani (Makhanwala), and he stuffed himself silly, and proclaimed that this was better than any Indian restaurant's version. Thank you for sharing! I will DEFINATELY make this again - but will probably switch to low fat or fat free yogurt or I will blow up like a whale from eating this so often.

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I am a spice person, I want food to burn me when I'm eating it. And, never being one to follow the rules, I did make some amendments to the spices in this recipe, and added a few extra ingredients to "make it my own". I used an extra clove of garlic, a bigger piece of ginger, and "heaped" the dry spice measurements. rather than using chili powder, I used 1/2 heaping tsp of chili powder, and 1 tsp of cayenne pepper to kick up the heat. I also added some red pepper flakes and about 1 tsp of salt. In the last 5 minutes, I added whole cashews and raisins - about 1/4 cup of each. I garnished with fresh chopped cilantro and cashews. Served this with Basmati rice that had been cooked with whole cloves and a cinnamon stick. My husband said that it was the best curry type dish he's ever eaten. Great base recipe for someone like me who likes to "tinker". I will DEFINATELY make this again! Thanks!!
