Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2012
It was delicious, but mine turned out way spicy! Must have been the type of Italian sausage I chose (which said mild, but I guess it wasn't), so I'm not faulting the recipe for it. I subbed chard for kale since that's what I had on hand. Hubby and I liked it, kids did not, so 4 stars based on adult rating (I think kids would like it better if the spice level was lower, again, my fault, so worth another try).

Garlic Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Good and easy, but took way longer than expected to cook (more like 50-55 minutes).

Cantaloupe Bread with Praline Glaze

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
Moist without overpowering cantaloupe flavor, baked in a bundt pan 55 minutes @ 325. Didn't make the glaze, but otherwise followed recipe. Very good.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2012
Very good classic pumpkin pie, nice and creamy and not too spicy. However, I prefer another pumpkin pie recipe from this site with streusel topping, which is fantastic.

Pumpkin Ginger Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
These cupcakes were AMAZING. I would give them 10 stars if I could. Moist and delicious. I normally don't like the taste of ginger but I can't stop eating these. I didn't change a thing, and I don't think that they need icing because they are sweet enough.

Hummus Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
Hubby and I liked it a lot, but my two toddlers didn't like it. They said, "how can this be a pizza without pepperonis?" It is good in its own right but may or may not be popular with your kids.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
Wow, this was amazing. Everyone loved it, even the kids. The only change i made was to use sliced almonds instead of salted cashews (didn't have any). Definitely a keeper.

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
Yum, this was so delicious. Loved it. It's definitely a keeper. The only change I made was to add chicken broth instead of beef broth since I was out of beef broth.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2012
Yummy even though I accidentally made a mistake making this recipe. I accidentally put in too much cocoa powder so I added more liquid to compensate. Still light and fluffy and delicious. I also didn't add the red food coloring.

Brown Family's Favorite Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
I would give this recipe 10 stars if I could. It is so delicious!!! More effortful than a regular pumpkin pie but it's so special that it's worth it. I halved the recipe for the filling to make a standard 9" pie, used my own pie crust recipe, and left the measurements for the topping intact (did not halve them). Even the pumpkin pie haters loved this and my family ate half the pie in one sitting.

Carrot and Raisin Salad II

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
My hubby says it is good, so I am giving it 4 stars. I didn't like it because I don't like raw carrots or raisons so I won't factor my opinion into this rating, that would probably be unfair to the recipe.

Rosemary Braised Lamb Shanks

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Definitely a keeper! My husband said "very delicious" and my 4 year old agreed! Amazing. First time my son ever said he liked a lamb dish. I cooked for 6.5 hours in slow cooker and used less red wine and more beef broth (but same amount of liquid in total).
