Turkey Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2013
Great recipe as is! However, if you get upset with reviewers who make changes, then read no further :) I've made this several times, and have adjusted to accommodate what I had on hand. I use frozen, cubed bacon "lardons" with some chopped up carrot and celery as the first step, rather than adding bacon at the end. Once the bacon has rendered and the carrots are starting to caramelize, then I add the broth. I didn't have green onions on hand or wild rice, so I used long grain rice. I used seasoned salt instead of regular, omitted the poultry seasoning and used milk instead of half-and-half. The sherry adds great flavor, so don't skip that!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2012
Made marinade exactly as written, though I used whole skinless boneless chicken breasts instead of chunks. The chicken was flavorful and juicy. Thank you for a great recipe!

Easy Turkey Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
IF made with real turkey drippings, then what a FANTASTIC and easy gravy recipe! Please note: one cannot expect the same result with all broth/stock, especially if canned/boxed and no turkey fat. Just b/c it utilizes a little canned soup (easssssy, gravy snobs, easy) doesn't mean it's not phenomenally savory, creamy, and the perfect consistency. Only changes I made were to omit garlic, only use a sprinkle of poultry seasoning, and cut salt back by half. I'd never have guessed about the soup being one of the ingredients. I will never make another turkey gravy recipe again. Ridiculously easy to make! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

German Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
Best potato pancake recipe I've found yet! I followed the recipe almost exactly with only 2 changes: doubled flour to 4 TBSP and doubled salt. The mixture was very watery so I did keep squeezing out the excess moisture. The result was well-seasoned, crispy potato pancakes worthy of a German restaurant. Thank you!

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
Made exactly as written ingredient-wise, but ground only the oats in the food processor and then whisked together everything else in a bowl- nice light, fluffy pancakes w/ a buckwheaty flavor/texture. Not quite sweet enough, so would probably add a tad more sugar or maybe honey to the recipe next time. Thanks!

Minestrone Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2011
Great recipe! Some changes for preference/items on hand: I didn't have an onion so I added extra carrots/celery (ground up in food processor) and added some frozen cubes of bacon (lardon) while sauteeing. I doubled the tomatoes (used coarse ground instead of stewed) and didn't add cabbage b/c I didn't have any (boo!). Since I had doubled the tomatoes, I added about a cup of water w/ a bouillon cube and doubled the pasta too. In effect, this doubled the recipe. The bacon added a fabulous smokiness and the bits of potatoes, pasta and veggies were perfect- not too chunky. Can't wait to eat again tomorrow!

Green Beans Amandine

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
Made exactly as written (using frozen, french-cut green beans since my kids like the "shredded" texture) and this is a classic, delicious recipe! Thanks so much!

Easy White Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
Made as written? A watery, chock-full-of-onions, overly spicy dish. Made again with the following modifications? FIVE STARS! : 1 large onion instead of 2, cut down cayenne to 1/2 tsp, puree 2 of the cans of beans for a creamier/thicker texture, decrease broth to 2 cans, add in the cheese while on the stovetop to melt/thicken, and, finally, add about a Tbsp of cider vinegar for a touch of acidity. THAT was the best white chicken chili I've ever made/had!

Easy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
What an easy alternative to regular chocolate chip cookies! I had a little trouble with them burning around the edges and then being raw in the middle, but I switched to a different baking pan and then they were fine. Very soft texture. Thanks!

German Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2011
Very well-received at a recent Oktoberfest girl's night. Only changes I made were to steam the potatoes with skin on (as opposed to boiling and peeling) and then just cut into rough chunks. Very savory and tasted even better the next day as leftovers

Kingman's Vegan Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
Wow. I'd never have guessed this was a vegan recipe. I was making for a friend's daughter who has egg/milk allergies. I made the batter into muffins instead of a loaf, and they were fluffy, not too dense and had the perfect amount of cinnamon flavor. I made exactly as written except I omitted the flax and arrowroot and I made into about 24 regular sized muffins (which I cooked at 350 for 20 minutes). Thanks!

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
Great muffins; very moist and tender. Tripled the recipe, which made exactly 35 muffins. Subbed 1/2 unsweetened applesauce and 1/2 oil. Used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour to every 1 cup of AP flour, and could have probably used more without them being too dense. Omitted nuts. Doubled chocolate chips, but will use less next time. Oh, and had no fresh lemon juice, so used the jarred stuff. Thanks for a fabulous recipe!

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
My kids LOVE these! Omitted the milk powder and added 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Added a splash of milk to the batter to thin it out a bit. We divide into freezer portions for busy weekday mornings before preschool, etc. They thaw/heat easily and extremely quickly in the microwave on 50% power

Almond Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I have mixed-feelings about these "bars". They were easy to make and had a nice subtle, buttery, almond flavor, but they were quite sponge-like and fluffy in texture as opposed to a chewy "bar" like I was hoping for. It was really an almond "cake". I won't be making again, which is probably a good thing for my waistline as it calls for a very large amount of butter/sugar/eggs. Thanks anyhow!

Sweetheart Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I thought these were fantastic! Soft, buttery, and easy to make. I used strawberry jam but will try raspberry next time. Thanks for a great recipe!

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2011
Delicious! Has a nice earthy, subtle flavor. Made the following adjustments: used baby portabellas, omitted the thyme, added fresh garlic and sauteed the garlic and onions in a little EVOO before adding broth, and then pureed only 1/2 the mixture to keep it chunky. Thanks for a great recipe!

Lasagna Alfredo Roll Ups

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
I was not wowed by these. I followed the directions to a T, except for adding fresh garlic and chopped sundried tomatoes to the spinach filling after reading some reviews about how it was bland, and still found the whole dish somehow salty AND bland at the same time. The filling was good after my changes, but the finished dish once I poured the sauce on was not what I was expecting for such a well-reviewed recipe. I used Newman's Own All Natural Alfredo Sauce, so perhaps it was the brand? Either way, the only way I'd make this again would be if I used marinara instead of alfredo. Thanks anyhow!

Chocolate Chip Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
Delicious muffins! I made them with my 3 yr old and they were easy and quick to make. I used milk instead of yogurt and subbed unsweetened applesauce in place of half of the oil. Next time I'd probably use fewer chocolate chips as well, but overall a recipe I'll definitely use again. Thank you!

Creamy Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
What an easy and tasty recipe! I made it exactly as written the first time, which garnered the 4 star review. The second time, however, I boiled some peeled fresh garlic right in the pot along w/ my potatoes and them mashed them all together. Oh, and I used redskin potatoes and didn't bother to peel them. SO EASY! These changes made it five star!

Sopapilla Cheesecake Dessert

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
FANTASTIC recipe! Very well-received at a recent dinner party I hosted. Also, extremely easy to make. I didn't even bother rolling out the crescent dough on the counter with a rolling pin; instead, I just unrolled it straight into the pan and pinched the edges together. Per another reviewer, I omitted the almonds and only used 1 cup of sugar for the first step instead of 1.5 cups. I doubled the cinnamon to 2 tsp. and drizzled honey on it as soon as it came out of the oven. Will be adding this to our list of faves!
