Terrific Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
Fantastic recipe! I added some yellow squash and fresh corn (both from my farmshare) and left out the coriander. I also used chicken instead of beef broth. It came out amazing, and is a great way to use up those veggies! I'm not crazy about squask or zucchini but ate every bite of it thanks to this recipe.

Strawberry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
I've made this 4 or 5 times now and it is a *hit* exactly as written. Add some high-quality vanilla and you'll never buy strawberry ice cream again. My only criticism is, why add the extra step by putting the cream into the yolk/sugar mixture and then putting it back in the pan? Just mix the yolk/sugar into the pan, it works fine as long as you stir it. Also, make sure you puree the strawberries. I tried them chopped and it did not work. It was like biting into frozen strawberries.

Bread Machine Pizza Dough

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
I found this dough way too sweet. Maybe it was the beer I used (Sierra Nevada IPA), but it was just not good. i didn't mind that it was beer-y, but the sweetness was overpowering.

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2010
I've made these twice in the past month (half batches, since there's only two of us), and they are awesome! So moist and tasty, and sort of healthy. Next time I'd replace the sugar with agave and cut it back a little too. They're delicious as is, but could be healthier and still delicious with a bit less. They're great for breakfast on the run, a sweet snack, or dessert.

Wheat Bread with Flax Seed

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
This came out great! Airy, light and delicious. It sounds like it might be a boring or heavy loaf based on the title, but it's really terrific. I added a seed mixture toward the end so the crust was extra tasty (and seedy), but this would've been good without that addition.

Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2010
My girlfriend loved this, but it was too rustic for me. The eggplant was definitely the main character here, it was more like a ratatouille than an eggplant parmesan. If you love eggplant, you'll love this. But it's not for picky eaters or vegetable-phobes.

No Frying Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
I made this with a few edits, and it came out great! I used the recipe for Homemade Tomato Basil Sauce on this site rather than the recommended sauce, and added ricotta cheese since I had it on hand. I didn't peel the eggplants, since I'm pretty lazy. This is an excellent way to use veggies from the CSA or garden.

Bread Machine Challah I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
This bread is fantastic. Quick, simple and delicious. It's great for sandwiches, french toast, and best of all- stuffing! I used this bread in the Slow Cooker Stuffing recipe on this site and it was hands down the best I've ever had, and the hit of the holidays.

Summer Zucchini Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2010
First, I don't know where one would find a 6 ounce package of stuffing. A standard package is 14 ounces. I had already prepared the recipe when i read the 6 ounce figure, so I scrambled to compensate for the difference. I added some chicken broth for moisture and it worked fine. It was delicious, and I'll definitely make it again. This time I'll know that "1 package" really means less than 1/2 package.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
People are still begging me to make this stuffing again, which I tried for the first time on Thanksgiving. I used a day old loaf of bread from my bread machine (Bread Machine Challah I on this site), toasted up the cubes in the oven for a few minutes and put it all in the slow cooker. There's no need to dirty a mixing bowl, just do the mixing in the cooker. Who needs more dishes to wash, especially on Thanksgiving? I eyeballed the broth, but probably ended up using about 2 cups. You can always add a little more toward the end if it looks too crunchy, but adding more bread is not as effective, especially if you didn't set any aside. Honestly though, just look at it while you add the broth and stop when it looks like the bread has absorbed a decent amount. Check on it and add broth periodically if you need to. Taste it an hour or so before serving and do the final adjustments. And try not to eat the whole batch.

Italian Ranch Chicken Strips

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2011
Delicious! I didn't have ranch, so I used parmesan peppercorn and it was outstanding. Dipped in a little more of the dressing or some sweet chili sauce and you've got a meal that everyone will love.

Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2011
Absolutely delicious! I slimmed it down slightly by using lowfat milk instead of half and half, but kept the whipping cream, and it was still pretty rich. I also used a real vanilla bean that I scraped out, and still used another tablespoon of extract. I can't wait to make this again. I just wish it would freeze faster so we could devour it right away.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Simple and delicious! The flavors will please everyone and it's so easy to cook. I skipped the oregano because I'm not a fan, used Earth Balance instead of butter and cut the olive oil in half to trim off some fat. It came out very well and was a big hit.

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
These were way too liquidy. Next time I'd use maybe half the orange juice. The liquid didn't thicken as I thought it would. They tasted fine, but this cranberry soup was definitely the outcast on the Thanksgiving table. Surprising for such a highly rated recipe.

P.J.'s Fresh Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2010
Excellent way to make use of the farmshare veggies! I leave out the red onion, but people still devour this when I make it. I've brought it to a few parties this summer and it's always a hit. I use http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Italian-Dressing-Mix/Detail.aspx for the dressing, which makes it even fresher. It's also versatile for changes in proportion of veggies. I was bombarded with cukes a few weeks ago and put at least 4 in (and maybe 4 ears of corn), and added some blanched green beans and it was still fantastic. Next time I may add some black beans. This is a definite keeper. Easy, refreshing and completely delicious!

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
This bread is ridiculously easy to make, and so delicious it's probably illegal in some states. At first I wasn't quite on board, since I was looking for a straight up bread machine loaf recipe, but I am thrilled that I went through with the piddling step of taking the dough out of the machine, brushing it with an egg wash and cooking it for a half hour. Honestly, when it came out of the oven I had just eaten a large dinner and couldn't resist taking a little nubbin off the end. Outrageous. I'm going to make a garlic bread with one loaf, and maybe use the other for sandwiches. I'm not worried, this bread will be eaten up in no time for sure. I had cornmeal on hand and I really like the touch that adds to the bottom of the loaf.

Broccoli Cheese Bake

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2010
I don't like Swiss, so I used a melange of cheeses I had in the fridge- Cheddar, American, maybe a little mozzarella. It tasted fantastic and my guests were pleased with this "hidden vegetable" dish.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I make this bread regularly, it's perfect for toast, tuna sandwiches, ham sandwiches, with brie at a party, whatever. My roommates think I'm some kind of domestic god when I make this stuff, it fills the house with the best smell and I know they love me more because of this delicious bread. The only thing I do differently is half the salt. Amazing recipe!
