Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2013
Let me put it this way - my step-son, who has been in the restaurant business for years, said "this might possibly be the best pasta I have ever eaten." Enough said.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
I have made this bread many times, as it is exceptional. Recommend no changes other than cutting salt to 1 teaspoon. Don't be afraid of all the rosemary! I actually bought rosemary in bulk on Amazon just so I can make this bread frequently. Alot cheaper there, and stores well in freezer.

Sausage, Spinach and Ricotta Calzone

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2013
5 stars for taste, but the previous reviewer was right on when she said the proportions were off. I'm an experienced cook but found it nearly impossible to create 8" circles out of the dough. Also, even with adding additional flour, the dough was very sticky. Next time, I'd use 2 cups of flour when making the dough, and slightly increase salt and sugar. Also easier if you use a silpat to roll out dough and bake directly on it.

Crazy Curly Broccoli Bake (Kid-Friendly)

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
I did not care for this recipe. Mushy and bland.

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
Da bomb!! Picky kids gobbled them up, and had no idea that I used Greek vanilla yogurt instead of milk, and part applesauce for the oil. To further the illusion of yummyness, I sprinkled mini chocolate chips on the top.

Quick and Easy Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2012
Well, I almost always cook from scratch, but let me tell you, this was terrific! Could not be easier, with a nice balance of flavors. Kids will like it because of taco seasoning influence. I think there's an error in the recipe, though. "Instant" rice should not take 20 minutes to cook as the recipe calls for; about 7 minutes is right. I think you could make this with regular rice and follow the recipe that calls for 20 minutes of cooking.

Pretty Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
While the chicken did indeed look "pretty," the ratio of flavors is off. The soy sauce and liquid smoke were predominant, and lent an artificial taste. If I make again, I will switch the amount of lemon and soy sauce, and cut the liquid smoke in half.

Black Bean Spread

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2011
Very good; quick and easy. My can of black beans measured a tad over the 1 1/2 cups required in the recipe. I also sprinkled some fresh chopped cilantro on the top for visual appeal. You could also use parsley for the same effect. If I made this again, I would probably add some lime or lemon juice.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Just wonderful! If you like artichoke dip, you'll love this, if made with Alfredo sauce. Don't use the nasty alfredo in the jar; I used "Alfredo Sauce" by R. Swift on this site, and quadrupled the recipe (except for parm). Took me about 10 minutes, and amount of sauce was perfect. Only other change was to reduce rosemary to 1/2 t. dried. Tip: the absolute best way to drain spinach is to squeeze the defrosted spinach between two plates.

Roasted Garlic Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2010
Very good! Here's how to make it easier - YOU DO NOT NEED TO PEEL the garlic cloves, just separate from the bulb of garlic. Cook in a scrap of foil, and once cooled a bit, the garlic will squeeze right out of the skin. I also found the garlic will burn if cooking over a temp over medium.

Healthy Garden Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I've made this several times, and actually crave this salad, with it's bright, clean flavors and protein punch. Fresh cilantro is a must, although also good is the tube of cilantro that most supermarkets sell now. TIP: microwave your limes for about 30 seconds; you'll be amazed at how much more juice you'll get.

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
To Die For! I followed the recipe exactly, except cooked the mixture in the oven for 15 minutes, and it was perfect! I wouldn't double the topping; the actual recipe yields thin, crispy bites of heaven. More topping would make it too rich, IMHO. If your brown sugar and butter are not combining well in the microwave, just keep stirring; they will combine by the end of the 2 minutes. UPDATE: I made this again, and discovered that if you don't use a pan in which the crackers fit snugly, the sugar/butter base will spread too thin and may burn.

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2009
SAFETY ALERT! If you don't follow the recipe directions and decide to start with raw chicken, be sure to boil the soup or bring to at least 170 degrees, to kill bacteria.

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
Not too bad, for a soup made mostly from canned goods. Make sure not to boil the soup after adding sour cream-it may curdle. Also, for the measurement-challenged like me, 2 quarts water=8 cups.

Braised Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
Simple with a sophisticated taste, and good for you too. What's not to love? You must use a good brand of balsamic vinegar or it may be bitter. I used the full amount of vinegar and even my kids loved it (but they woudn't have eaten it if I told them vinegar was in the dish). I would serve this to guests, and that's saying alot.

Frog Cupcakes

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
After making 30+ of these babies, I found a way to speed up the tedious process of decorating these cupcakes. First, cut the marshmallows in half as directed, since the round big eyes they create gives them visual appeal. After rolling in green sugar, glue the chocolate eye on the "sticky" side using frosting. Then, with one finger on the "unsticky" side and your thumb on the chocolate chip, place them FIRMLY on the frosting. These were definitely worth the work involved - sooo cute! My daughter helped by glueing on the chocolate chip. We decorated some frogs with green sugar on the frosting (like instructed) and some without, and we decided that they were cuter without. Lastly, we used red Twizzlers "pull-n-peel" to make the mouth.

Panzanella Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
Oh this is tasty!! The 6 cups of bread cubes used in the recipe required just over 3/4 lb. loaf ciabatta bread. Speaking of bread, definitely use a crusty, hearty bread for best results. I got mine on the clearance rack at the supermarket (almost expired). Also, I would not bother making this recipe unless I had extremely fresh, tasty tomatoes. It's all about a few fresh ingredients with this recipe. My guests were raving over this!

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2009
I'm a fresh and simple kind of gal when it comes to veggies, but this was a nice change. There's quite a bit of butter sauce after cooking, which I poured over our baked potatoes, and placed a dab on our steaks. Delish! I took off about 5 minutes of cooking time, and they were nicely crisp/tender.

Cream Cheese Squares

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
Well, after all the spectacular reviews, I was left feeling disapointed with the end result. The squares were good, just not anything exceptional in my opinion. If I'm going to eat something with that many calories, it needs to be worth it! To reduce the look of the crescent dough "lines," lightly pinch the dough together at the seams, then smooth over with your fingers dipped in warm water.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
Considering all the rave reviews, I was sorely disappointed. The end result tasted like something out of box, perhaps because of the manufactured taste of the soup? My husband liked it, however. Might taste better with a roux made with butter, rather than the condensed soup.
