West African Peanut Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
One of our favorite restaurants occasionally serves this soup, and we always look forward to it. I generally followed the recipe and used red garnet sweet potatoes as they are chock full of nutrients. We omitted the greens, cut the red pepper flakes by half, and used chunky natural peanut butter (no sugar added) so I tossed in a small fistful of brown sugar, and a little cinnamon, ground cloves and cumin for added aromatic spice. I actually liked that the potatoes cooked down and gave the soup a comforting thick texture perfect on a cold day. If I needed it served over anything, it likely would be quinoa for the additional protein. I will be making this again!

Shredded Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2012
This was very good; I did make a few adjustments based on my preferences and also recommendations by other reviewers. I skipped the butter & pine nuts. Used 2 tsp. of bacon grease and about 1/2 cup of chicken broth with some minced garlic with a bit of sea salt & black pepper as my sautee liquid. Cooked over medium heat for 7 minutes, and added 2 pieces of crumbled bacon. Delicious!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2011
I thought these were actually outstanding! My motivation was to bring some unexpected fiber and protein into my 8 year old's menu, while still having a chocolate treat. She even helped me make them and knew there were beans in them from the start. My 44 year old BF really enjoyed them, too! Substitutions: 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce + 1 tsp coconut oil in place of oil. 1 tsp baking powder. 1 cup organic dark chocolate chips sprinkled on top - 1/2 cup just didn't look like enough in my 9" square pan. Cut baking time down to 25 minutes due to larger pan. Perfection! BE SURE TO BUY BEANS THAT DON'T HAVE ANY SPICES ADDED, OR SOAK DRIED BEANS OVERNIGHT. Eat warm, then refrigerate after cooking, and zap in the nuke for 10 seconds to re-warm. So easy, and so YUMMO!

Grilled or Fried Skirt Steak

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
This was definitely a hit in our household! I practically have to pull teeth to get my daughter to eat more than 3 or 4 bits of meat. She actually had seconds, and asked if we could have it again tomorrow night! The only thing I did differently was use dijon mustard and add 2 tsp of minced garlic to the marinade. We actually broiled the meat since it was raining too hard to grill and I didn't feel like pan frying. This is definitely going into my recipe box. Thank you!!

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
I made 100 of these for a party, and they were devoured. Substituted Japanese panko crumbs for traditional bread crumbs. Also only had time to dredge in panko once - but they still turned out very well! Great recipe, and remember to wear your gloves when working with this many jalapeno peppers!!

Blueberry Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
This was a seriously simple pie, and oh-so-yummo. I used frozen berries picked from the fields last summer and we couldn't tell the difference. After reading the reviews, I did opt for 5 Tbsp cornstarch and a splash of lemon juice. Our berries were so sweet to begin with, easily could have cut the sugar down to 1/2 cup. I cheated and used Marie Callendar frozen pie crust.

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
This recipe is so incredibly easy, and delicious! I used 50/50 green & red cabbage for color. Also substituted light mayo. May try again with plain yogurt. Goes great with "Slow Cooker Pulled Pork" simmered in rootbeer. YUMMO!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
I made this for the office as lunch, and the staff devoured it. Used pork butt which gave the recipe a lot of flavor, and bought root beer made with real sugar (NOT the large national brands of soda with high-fructose corn syrup in them). I'll be making this again & again! Goes GREAT with Mom's Coleslaw...
