Mushroom Matzo Kugel

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2015
I tried this - just out of curiosity. I've never had a kugel. I followed the recipe - the only substitution I made was cilantro instead of parsley (I don't like parsley). It was okay, but a little bland for me. Kind of like a quiche, but not quite (it has no milk or butter). I know it's probably not "kosher" but I would have added shredded cheddar - that might have been the missing "ooomph" that it needed to be amazing. Thanks for sharing - I learned a little bit about Jewish culture by reading about this recipe in the magazine and then trying it myself. :)

'Pizza' Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2015
We LOVED this! Saw it in the AR magazine and just had to try it. I make regular Shepherd's Pie so I figured this was a great alternative. I didn't use canned tomatoes - I used fresh chopped tomatoes and a little spaghetti sauce. I also added a small can of chopped mushrooms. I used Pillsbury pizza dough (refrigerated dough, not frozen). It turned out so well - it looks amazing! (wish I'd snapped a picture for this review) My family couldn't wait to dig into it. However, I would try a different dough. I made the leftover dough into breadsticks and they were so-so. Pillsbury calls it pizza dough but it tastes a little too sweet, almost like their crescent rolls, but not that delicate. I've made pizza with that dough and it was okay. But next time I'll look for the frozen dough for this recipe.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2013
Incredible taste! Wow! My family raved about this - they said it was like "company dinner". :) I baked the chicken on skewers in the oven for 20 mins at 350F and then broiled them another 5-10 minutes, turning once, to give 'em a little 'char' taste. I removed the sauce after baking and served it over rice and broccoli as other reviewers recommended - very tasty! I reduced the olive oil to 1/4 cup, the salt to 1 teaspoon and it tasted great! Highly recommend this one - you will be impressed!

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2011
Awesome taste! Even my meat-loving husband gave this one a thumbs up. I didn't use the hot sauce due to tender palates - just increased the ketchup (instead of tomato paste) to 2 tablespoons. I also add more ketchup to the topping to be more traditional. Can anyone tell me why you have to cook the onions and garlic ahead of time? I'd think that after nearly an hour in the oven, they would be well cooked. (When I put raw onion in beef hamburgers and fry them, they always cook just fine.) I just put them in raw (minced) and they cook just fine. I cook the quinoa in beef broth instead of water - adds some beef flavor. Thanks, Drew! This has become one of my "regulars" now - healthy and tasty! :)

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
Awesome taste and definitely more filling than the usual smoothie. I made it with strawberries first, using honey instead of sugar and it was great. Then I made it with frozen blueberries alone and it was still amazing! I didn't have any ripe bananas and never missed them - the smoothie was so good and healthy. :)

Mississippi Mud Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
I love these. I used to make these all the time growing up - for every bake sale or fundraiser event. They were called Skillet Cookies because you make them in a skillet. Also, you leave the stove on Medium heat the entire time. This allows the sugar to dissolve completely and prevents you from over cooking or under cooking them. (So you don't have to worry about the 2 mins of boiling.) The butter, milk, cocoa and sugar make a candy-like coating so that when you add the oats & stuff, it hardens when it cools. We always put these in the refrigerator to harden. Using rolled oats makes them chewy - using quick oats makes them easier to eat (less chewy, which is good for people with dentures :). I followed this version of the recipe except I reduced the sugar to 1 3/4 cups and it was still too sweet (will try 1.5 cups next time). I upped the walnuts and coconut to 3/4 cup, but couldn't taste them much. My original recipe didn't include nuts or coconut - now I see why. You can't really taste them (kind of a waste of ingredients). I like mine more chocolaty so I increased the cocoa to 8 tablespoons = 1/2 cup. My original recipe called for 2 Tablespoons of peanut butter - that might have balanced the sugar a little bit so they didn't seem so sweet. Either way - these are great! I always get requests for them at family gatherings and parties.
