Amazing Chocolate Quinoa Cake!

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2015
I halved the recipe and baked in an 8x8 pan, which is pretty close to half of a 9x13 pan. This is a nice satisfying chocoate cake. Moist and dark. I do not have a blender and used the food processor. The quinoa was not 100% smooth, but it was fine. Just an awareness of "something" between the teeth a little. I did not add nuts or chocolate chips, but that may have camouflaged the quinoa texture. It was not a problem though. Happy to have a gluten free dessert for friends without having to buy special ingredients. Thank you for posting the recipe.

Lawn Mower Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2015
I made a smaller amount of the salad for us and used the extra dressing to marinate bite-sized pieces of boneless skinless chicken breasts. The salad and chicken sat a few hours in the fridge, then I quickly stir-fried the chicken, added the nuts and seeds to the salad and we had a great dinner! Thanks Molly, for sharing this yummy recipe.

Easy Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2015
We enjoyed these very much. I wanted four large size patties and used two 7-oz cans of (Costco Kirkland) tuna. I mixed only one egg with the lemon juice and Panko crumbs and grated cheese. When I added the tuna and onion, it did not seem to want to hold together well, so I added a spoonful of mayo. I made four large size balls with my hands and squished them down onto the griddle to form patties. Fried to golden brown in some oil. Served these with honey-mustard sauce (equal mix of mustard and mayo, add a spoonful of honey and shake on some dried chopped onions. Mix well and let sit while the tuna patties cook.)

Pumpkin Cake III

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2015
Easy to put together for a delicious homemade treat. My only sub was to use 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce in place of the 1 1/4 cup oil. I spread most of the batter in a 9x13 pan and finished the rest in a six inch diameter round cake pan. We got to sample the cake and still had a whole one for guests! Used cream cheese frosting. I am glad that people make changes to recipes and post reviews anyway...I would not have made this with all that oil. Thanks for the information about using applesauce and oil, and even less than called for. It worked fine the way I did it. I cannot understand why people do not want to know about substitutions to recipes.

Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2015
So full of flavor. I brushed the boneless skinless chicken breasts with this dressing as they cooked. Served the chicken with soba noodles and spooned the dressing over the noodles and the chicken. What a great taste! Thanks for this yummy recipe!

Parmesan Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2015
This is a tasty way to prepare Brussels sprouts. The ingredient list is strange here. Butter is listed three times. And only six Brussels sprouts? I used many more than that! Sprouts are sold here in the fresh produce in a net bag (maybe a pound?). Quite a few...filled my skillet. I used a tablespoon of butter and a little avocado oil to brown them. Added a little water (could use chicken broth) to help them cook. Sprinkled on the cheese and seasonings and covered a minute to melt the cheese. (No added butter.) I think some walnuts would be a nice addition if you want to make it a little more special. Very pretty side dish! Thank you.

Thai Red Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2015
I am reviewing this recipe even though I have tweaked it.  I realize there are some people who think a recipe needs to be made as written in order to be reviewed.  I am so glad that there are cooks who tweak and review and add their comments and reasons for the changes.  I followed many of the suggestions of other reviewers here to make this dish more flavorful and am pleased to report it was a big hit.  I am giving this four stars, because it was not "wonderful" for me until it was tweaked.  But I thank the submitter for the recipe and inspiration.

Pumpkin Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2015
I made this and put the batter in a 9" diameter round pan. Omitted the nuts. Since I only had light brown sugar, I added a tablespoon of molasses for flavor. Served with homemade chicken-veg soup. Very nice! A piece with butter and honey was good for breakfast.

Cornbread I

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2014
I wondered how this would work with no flour, but I followed directions. I poured the very thin batter into my hot greased skillet and stirred in the fat (olive oil). I set the timer for 30 minutes, but peeked in at 22. Good thing, since the edges were quite dark. I took it out, cooled slightly, and cut it. Quite dark on the bottom (not burned). It's only 1/2 inch thick. The flavor is OK. I agree the salt is a little too much. This is not going to be my new favorite cornbread recipe. Sorry. UPDATE: I revisited this recipe today. I read the reviews suggesting a lower temperature and to make sure to put vinegar in the milk if not using buttermilk. I also realized my skillet is larger than the recipe calls for, so I increased amounts by half. My result was a thicker bread and I turned it out of the pan so that it would not continue to brown. It looks beautiful. But, alas! I miss the sugar and flour! So although this may be what YOU are looking for, it is still not for me. But I really tried. In this case, people who DID NOT follow the recipe's directions, but left a review telling what they did instead, really helped me. These directions do not seem to be accurate for many people.

Granny Kat's Pumpkin Roll

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2014
Love this easy recipe. I like that the cake has no added oil and that it mixes together and bakes so quickly. I have made this many times, but today found I had used all of my powdered sugar and didn't have any to sprinkle on the towel for the baked cake. I used brown sugar and like it even more! It sparkles and the flavor works well with the cake. Give it a try.

Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2014
Followed advice here to use entire can of pumpkin and doubled raisins. Only other change I made was to sub one of the three eggs with flax meal. (one tbsp flax meal in three tbsps water for five minutes. Then use just like an egg.) These are seriously good, maybe a little sweet. Might try cutting back on sugar next time. The applesauce I used had no sugar.

Texas Sheet Cake II

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
This was good, but I think when most people saw it they thought it was a large pan of brownies. Until they saw the cake, that is. I would personally prefer the deeper chocolate and the gooey moistness of brownies. But if you are looking for a big thin chocolate cake, give this a try. Oh, I also found that if you let the iced cake cool and then cover it with a piece of plastic wrap, the plastic wrap will not stick but it easily peels off without destroying the icing. (I guess because of all the butter in the icing.)No need to stick toothpicks in the cake to hold the plastic wrap up or any other tricks.
