Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
This was a perfect roast chicken, and it was so easy! I would have liked to follow this recipe exactly, but I was missing a few ingredients...onion powder, cayenne pepper, and onions. I also didn't have 5 hours, so I increased the heat to 170C (220C for the first 10 minutes to crisp up the skin) and cooked it for almost 2 hours. I boiled potatoes in chicken broth, and then used 1 cup of the broth and 2 tbs corn starch to make a gravy, which was really, really good. My husband is slipping into a food coma from eating too much... I will definitely make this again, and follow the recipe exactly...but it's hard to imagine it will get any better!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2012
This is really good. Definitely use fresh garlic and red onion- it's good for you. I used spinach tagliatelle instead of regular fettuccini, and also added some sliced red green and yellow bell peppers. These changes make it a little more nutricious without changing much of the taste. This recipe would still be good without the pepper jack cheese (keep the parmesan).

Dominican Style Oatmeal

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2012
This recipe is the perfect bowl of basic cinnamon oatmeal. To streamline the morning breakfast routine, I separate 2-portion mix into jars and just pour into the pot and add milk in the morning. Every little bit of time saved matters! Thanks for the great, money-saving recipe.

Grilled Pineapple Slices

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
These were awesome! I did change a couple things....for convenience, I used 2 cans of sliced pineapple, drained them, and soaked them in a whole can of coconut milk the day before. I mixed about 3 tbsp honey into the coconut milk and omitted all of the sugar (healthier and diabetes friendly), and just gave 4 or 5 good shakes of cinnamon. So easy, so good!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
These cookies are excellent, but they should definitely come with a disclaimer: **If you do not have mixing equipment, the batter is REALLY hard to stir!** My arms are exhausted from stirring, even after I added almost a cup of milk. The milk (which the recipe did not call for) also contributed to my cookies being flat as pancakes instead of nice and chunky like in the picture. Bottom line- excellent cookies if you have mixing equipment or a really strong man!

Ricotta Gnocchi

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
This was delicious! Thank you so much for the recipe. I was confused by other reviewers who said they changed the recipe by boiling the gnocchi...but that is what the recipe asks you to do. I didn't change any of the ingredients, but I did make more sauce than called for, because we love sauce. This was a great change from our usual pasta staples. It's very filling.

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
This chicken was delicious. I used strips of chicken breast and marinated sliced mushrooms as well, and left it all in the fridge for a few hours. I covered the grill with foil and grilled it all, and then put it on small ciabatta loaves with some fresh mozzarella cheese. Then stuck that in the oven until warm and melty. Best paninis ever! This chicken is great for sandwiches. Update: After making this lots of times, we've found we like it best when we omit the lemon juice, vinegar, and sugar.

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
OMG I will never make stuffing out of a box again! I've made delicious stuffing from scratch before, but being able to use the slow cooker saves SO much time and counter space. My husband and I are expats in Germany, and every year we have people from all over the world celebrate Thanksgiving with us. You never know if people will like our traditional food, but I got compliments from an Italian man, a Chinese woman, a Dutch couple, a German couple, and my husband. This dish definitely made me proud last Thanksgiving, so vielen dank for that!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2012
This was soooooo good. There was just one bad thing....the peppercorns, if they're not totally ground up, taste REALLY bad. Unless you can grind them really small, I'd just leave it out. Other than that, 10 stars for this recipe. One suggestion for ease, consider using frozen prepared meatballs to cut out the extra meat cooking step.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
Definitely an excellent lasagna, but you have to like sausage. I do and I love this, but my husband doesn't like sausage as much as I do and he thought the sausage flavor was overpowering. I would definitely make this recipe again, but next time I will try it with just beef. The cheese mixture is awesome!!

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
We are Americans living in Germany, and Germans put tuna on EVERYTHING! Pizza, salad, anything... Because of that, my tuna-sandwich loving husband didn't really want me to make this for dinner, but he still went back for seconds. It didn't blow me away or anything, but it was really good. The sauce was the best part. Next time I make this I will try substituting canned chicken instead of tuna and seasoning with a little more salt. Thanks for the recipe! UPDATE: This actually gets better and better after sitting for a day or two, and it freezes well too. I previously rated it 4 stars but I'm upping it to five because of that.

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
This is really good! It tastes a lot like a brownie, and the texture is somewhere in between a light brownie and cake. This is the first cake I've made without eggs, and it's an easy one with ingredients most people have on hand....in other words it an "it's raining and I can't go to the store but I need chocolate right now!" kind of cake :) I frosted it with chocolate cream cheese. I will make this again sometime, and maybe try a lighter frosting and chocolate chips. Thanks for the recipe!

Carrot Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
I always feel bad for rating a recipe when I couldn't make it by the book, but I suppose it helps to know that it will still be worth making if you're short an ingredient or two. I used sunflower seeds instead of peanuts, and just a little bit of ground ginger because I didn't have fresh. I didn't use cilantro because we don't like it. I would estimate that I used about 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper and almost 1 tsp salt. This was delicious and went great with grilled pork. A little head's up: this rice was REALLY filling...more than normal rice. Maybe it was the nuts. Anyway, you might want to portion a little smaller.

Sarah's Applesauce

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
This is sooooo good. Made 2.5 times the original amount, and I just ate way too much in one sitting. It's such a pain to peel all those apples, and I feel like you lose a lot of good apple, so I just cored them, cut them in quarters, and cooked them that way. Once it cooled, I used my hands to squeeze the peels away from the apples. That worked pretty well.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
This was really good. I've made better side dishes, but this deserves 5 stars because it's good AND extremely easy. I used parmesan reggiano cheese and homemade chicken broth.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
This is a great recipe. I've had to make a few adjustments to easily scale it to 2 people: 2 peppers, 1 can tomato soup, 200g ground meat, 1 small chopped red onion, 2tbsp rice, 2 tbsp water, 1/4 cup cheese, and a few squirts worchester sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. Followed all the directions as-is, except I just add the whole can of tomato soup to the meat/rice, and don't worry about pouring it over the top.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2012
This is our recipe for Sunday pancakes. As Americans living in Germany, we cherish our little tastes of home. FYI, I realized half way through that I didn't have baking powder one day, and made it anyway. Just add 1/4 more milk, and you've got delicious crepes!

Avocado Feta Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2012
Yum! I bring this to work for lunch, and it's great. I use fresh mozzarella with basil in it instead of feta cheese. Bring some nuts along and you've got a nice, healthy, well-balanced lunch.

Rotisserie Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
Best rotisserie chicken I've ever made...this is one of our favorite things to eat. I put less paprika than the recipe called for (maybe about 1/2) because I didn't know if my husband likes paprika. I also added a few dashes of garlic salt. I melted all the seasonings together in a pan on the stovetop and rolled the chicken around in it after it cooked for 10 mins. The seasoning was really good....has kind of a salty tangy-ness. We will definitely make this again. UPDATE: I always make this in my toaster oven (it has a rotisserie attachment) and it's perfect. Sometimes I alternate seasonings with the "Roast sticky chicken" recipe by Sue Rogers, on this website, for some variety, and stick a lemon in the middle. Cooking chicken this way is the best!

Ranch Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2011
These were excellent. I used bread crumbs instead of saltines because I can't get them where I live (I know, right??). I didn't have nice fresh, soft buns so I decided to make mini burgers and put them on refrigerator biscuits. I topped them with bacon and gouda cheese. Awesome! Will definitely make again.
