Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Excellent! The candied walnuts really make this salad. I added an apple and some red onion. I also just used normal store-bought raspberry vinaigrette. Delicious and quick!

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
Amazing! I'd never made applesauce before and this turned out great. I used 5 apples, a little be less sugar and 2 tablespoons of cinnamon.... I put in too much cinnamon but that's my own fault. Still delicious.

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
I've never made a black bean soup before but this was delish! I only had 1 can of black beans, and I added a finely chopped onion, 1/2 cup very spicy salsa and a can of tomato sauce. I pureed before serving and added 1/2 cup of light soy milk to cut the spice.

Slow-Cooked Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
This recipe was fabulous...but I admittedly made a lot of changes! I put 1 can of corn in the blender, with juice. (I couldn't find creamed corn at the grocery.) I added garlic and quite a bit of cayenne, a bay leaf and a pinch of basil. I added frozen mixed veggies in addition to a bag of frozen corn. I used unsweetened soy milk in place of milk and added about 3 tbsp of flour. Came out amazing. I think without my additions it might not have been so delicious.

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
Excellent. I use light soy milk instead of regular milk and it comes out great.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
My favorite soup! I am not a great cook by any means and yet I haven't managed to ruin this soup yet, it always comes out great. I am mildly lactose intolerant so I use soy milk and it still comes out great.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2010
When I bake bread it generally doesn't come out very well- this turned out GREAT! Light and fluffy. I used a combo of about 1/2 bread flour and 1/2 all purpose flour because it's what I had. I also had about 1/2 cup of chocolate ganache leftover from another baking project that I mixed into the filling mixture. YUM.

Marinated Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2010
It's the middle of winter in Minnesota so the grill isn't an option- I sauted these on the stove, I think I over cooked the shrimp a bit but the overall flavor of this dish is excellent! I served it with rice and broccoli.

Mustard Crusted Tilapia

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2010
YUM. I had never made tilapia before and this turned out AMAZING. I followed the recipe pretty much exactly (kinda guessed on the lemon juice and used dijon mustard because it's what I had) and it came out great. Really easy, nice because the breading is very light. I'll definitely make this again.

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Excellent recipe! I use my bread machine to make the dough, but I don't really like the shape of the bread if I bake it in the machine so I put it in a bread pan to rise for an hour. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes. Always comes out great.

Challah I

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
This is the best bread I've made. Followed another reviewer's advice of only baking for 25 min. I'm not sure if I'd classify it in the same category as the Challah I had growing up, but it's absolutely delicious. I think if I wanted to make it more Challah-y next time, I'd add more eggs? The bread itself is light and fluffy, I got 3 decent sized loaves out of this recipe. I will say I attempted to make the dough in my bread machine (2 lb loaf max) and it couldn't handle the large quantity or possibly the stickyness- the mixing paddle somehow came off. Still, made it by hand and it turned out amazingly. Dusted sugar, cinnamon and cocoa powder on the top of one loaf, delicious.

Winter Lentil Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
This soup is a good staple that I frequently take to work for lunch. It's healthy and easy, but not the most interesting or exciting soup. I add a 4 oz can of tomato paste, and whatever other veggies I have, along with some cayenne.

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2010
Delicious! I added some extra ingredients but followed the basic outline of the recipe and it came out really well. I added celery and a green bell pepper, along with some spicy peppers and quite a bit more cayenne, cumin and tumeric since I like things extra spicy. I also used brown rice since it was all I had on hand, and it was great. I added fresh cilantro as a garnish. Would have been great with lime juice too.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
This is pretty good. I added jalapenos and cayenne in addition to crushed red pepper and chili paste. because I like it spicy. I will make this again, but I want to play with the ratio of noodles to sauce- I ended up with too many noodles, not enough sauce probably through my own error.

Red Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
This was pretty good! I overcooked the lentils and they are cemented on the bottom of the pot, but that's clearly my own fault! This wasn't too spicy at all, and even though my lentils were "mushy" or whatever, the texture was great. I ate this mixed with fresh spinach. The only complaint I have about this recipe is that it definitely did not make EIGHT main meal servings. I got 3 out of it.

Apple Crisp II

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
This was good! I used honeycrisp apples. I added 2 tablespoons cinnamon, nutmeg and a little vanilla to the apple mixture, and I only used 1/2 c brown sugar instead of 1 c white sugar. For the topping I used 1/4 c butter- came out fine!

Spicy Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2010
These were decent, but I found the paprika flavor to be overpowering. It overshadowed a lot of the other flavors int he burger.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
This recipe was good but if I hadn't added extra spices it would have just tasted like tomato sauce and coconut milk without much seasoning. At the end of cooking I added a handful of red pepper flakes and some cayenne. The sweet coconut milk and the spice combo was great. EDIT- I made this again and added a jalapeno in addition to the cayenne and red pepper. Perfect. Broccoli and green peppers went along with it nicely.

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2011
adjusted recipe to make 12 servings (1 loaf). Used 1 1/2 c bread flour, 1/2 c regular flour, 2/3 c whole wheat flour. 1 tablespoon sugar only. Extreme difficulty getting it from board where I let it rise to bread stone.

Actually Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
A good burger. Next time I will grate the onion instead of dicing it to get it smaller- I tried chopping it finely but the pieces were too large and crunchy. I also subbed cilantro for the parsley because I prefer it, and added a little Worcestershire and hot sauce to the mix. Served with cheddar cheese on top and BBQ sauce.
