Tasty Buns

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2004
After working with several other bread recipes to perfect loaf bread and cinnamon buns, my husband and I decided to try this recipe for hamburger buns. We followed the directions exactly, which are different in terms of rising times for other bread recipes, and the buns were great! We will definitely be making more. Also, once you have the buns shaped, they freeze beautifully. Then you can take out the number you need, thaw, rise and cook as directed. This way we always have fresh buns anytime we're having burgers.

Roasted Beets with Feta

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
This was wonderful. Flavorful, pretty and easy to boot. I had to substitute garlic, spring onion and a little sweet onion for the shallots, rice wine vinegar for the red wine vinegar and goat cheese for the feta; but it was still terrific. So flavorful I forgot to save the last bite so I could try it cold. Can't wait to do this one again. UPDATE: Tried this with golden beets today, still excellent. Because I'm on low sodium restriction I'm sticking with the goat cheese, and I crumble it fresh over each serving to help it stay a little crumbly.

Avocado-Shrimp Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
This is a great recipe. After reading the reviews, I made with the Mexican Bean Salad dressing from this site and it turned out so great I kept going back for more. While the original recipe is good, I like the addition of black olives and the different dressing to give it more zing. Such a plus not to have the typical mayo dressing.

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2011
I've made this several times and its a great recipe that works well if you want to alter it a little for different tastes or what you have handy. I've used asiago cheese instead of the feta, also different vinegars like white balsamic, white wine and rice wine. Also, not a fan of pine nuts, but almonds go great. If you want your spinach wilted, you can put it in the colandar and then drain the orzo ( you can also substitute a variety of pastas) over the spinach to wilt it without extra cooking. Enjoy.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2009
I think this is a great recipe for a basic, moist chicken. You can always add some spices to your liking; but we enjoyed it just as is. Very juicy and moist. I prefer dark meat, but even the white meat of this chicken is good.

Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2006
This makes a beautiful, loaf of cinnamon bread, even without the glaze. Also, I put all the ingredients, except the cinnamon mixture, in my dough machine to make a nice, slightly sweet loaf of white bread which came out terrific. We use it instead of buns for hamburgers. Thanks for a great recipe.

Country Seed Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2006
This is a great bread. I didn't have whole wheat flour, so just used unbleached regular instead. Followed other suggestions and substituted sunflower seeds for poppy(personal preference). Used a coffee blade grinder to grind flax seed and it worked great. Bread is great as is, and if you can wait a day the honey flavor improves with time.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
I love this way of preparing Brussels sprouts. For me, the darker on the outside, the better. I bypass the baggie and prepare the pan with some evoo. Then I put the sprouts on the pan, coat with a small amount of evoo and add a little kosher salt. I do try shaking the pan at least twice during cooking to insure uniform cooking.

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2014
We use this recipe any time we want tacos now. Its quick, easy and tastes way better than those you find on the grocery store shelves. Biggest advantage for me: they are low sodium so I can enjoy tacos again. We make a recipe and divide them into round balls which we then freeze. Easy to get out the number we need for the next meal, thaw and cook. Excellent recipe.

Corn On The Cob (Easy Cleaning and Shucking)

Reviewed: May 25, 2014
Followed the cooking directions here and decided it needed one more minute in my microwave. Second time around I cooked it 2 1/2 minutes per side. It was perfect. No silk, easy clean up and no heat added to the kitchen. Since different microwaves are different powers, you may need to experiment slightly to find the perfect time for yours; but this is my new go-to way to cook corn on the cob.

Creamy Spiced Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2006
As with several other recipes, I used this as a guide and mixed the ingredients to my taste. Omited the garlic and onion powders, and added everything else. Put it over some shredded cabbage and WOW, was it good. I'm not a fan of coleslaw and I even had trouble staying out of it. Chilling for an hour helps the vinegar and sugar to mingle into a very nice combination that isn't too sharp. Thanks for this recipe.

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
Really enjoyed this salad. Made it twice, the first time I ate it minutes after putting it together. The second I let everything except the avocado sit together for a couple of hours, then I added the avocado and let that sit for another 30 minutes or so. I liked it better giving it a little time to sit as it gives the citrus juice time to soften a little with the cucumber. Next I want to try it with some chopped fresh tomatoes.

Creole Okra

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
I've been making a similar recipe since I started cooking. Its great for frozen okra and even better if you can find fresh. Also, you can add a couple of stalks of dices celery to it for additional texture. I also will add browned ground beef and serve over rice for the ultimate in comfort food that still has some spice. Enjoy.

Sesame Pasta Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2005
This is a great basic recipe which you can tweak for your own tastes. Took the advice of some reviewers and reduced the oil (evoo) and added a little chili oil for a kick. Also added a clove of garlic. Poured some of the dressing on warm noodles; also marinated some chicken breasts in the dressing before cooking. Finally, took fresh snow peas and put them in the bottom of a colander, then poured cooked pasta over them to blanch them. Finished up by adding some red bell pepper for flavor and color. Really enjoyed the result.

Pizza Dough II

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2006
We have been using this recipe regularly since first trying it. I don't keep whole wheat flour, so I use only unbleached regular flour and it still turns out great. Make the dough in my bread machine, and then smooth it onto the pizza pan. The olive oil is a great addition that yields a lighter crust than I've done before. Thanks

French Onion Soup Gratinee

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2007
I've made this soup twice since finding it two weeks ago and loved it both times. I've varied the ingredients a little depending on what I have (type of onions, cooking wine, beef bullion) and it still comes out great. I even save what is left over and reheat it the next day....its still wonderful. I've been looking for this recipe a long time. Excellent!!!

Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2008
An excellent recipe that is both quick and very tasty. I think the "magic" here is in using excellent vanilla. I have Mexican vanilla which has a wonderful flavor of its own. The cookies were wonderful and the size of the recipe great as it didn't leave too many to store.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2008
Gave this 5 stars because its a great basic recipe that is easy to "customize" to personal taste. I like a little less honey and a little more soy sauce/peanut butter. The fresh ginger is a very nice touch. I do use red pepper flakes for the heat, because its what I always have on hand. UPDATE: Adding chicken makes a great complete pasta salad, served cold or hot.

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Fabulous. Hubby is a convert after being reluctant to try. So easy and refreshing. I did have to substitute wine vinegar once and its just as good. For a twist, try adding a few thinly sliced onions to the mix instead of the ginger. We live near Vidalia, so sweet onions are frequently in our pantry. They make an excellent addition.
