Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2009
Oh my goodness! You can stop looking for BBQ sauce recipes. This is it! It is a cut above any BBQ sauce I've ever made. I made it as written. Everytime I even think about this sauce, my salivary glands go into overdrive. Unforgettable!

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
We had these as written, but with ground beef instead of chicken. Delicious!

Spiced Quinoa

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
A great way to use a very healthy grain. We bought a 4 pound bag of Quinoa at Costco for a good price so I was looking for recipes. I used slivered almonds instead of pine nuts. Next time I will add more raisins. Very nice!

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
Oh yes people! We have made this recipe as written many times. It's a very easy, great way to get another veggie into the children, inexpensive, and delicious! I've tried it with real maple syrup instead of the brown sugar and... surprise, it's also great. Carrots last a long time in the fridge so they are usually always available to us. There are never any leftovers.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
I used 3 pounds of chicken, 1 large onion (it reduces down and adds a nice flavor), and unsweetened light coconut milk. Simmer about 50-60 minutes, taking the cover off about halfway through to slightly thicken. Serve over plenty of rice. Top with toasted coconut flakes! Thanks Roma, it's easy and a keeper. Couple of us licked the bowl:)

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
These cookies really live up to their name. When I made these insted of using all of the sugar I use 3/4 cups of white sugar and 3/4 cups brown sugar. The recipe says to leave them cool for 5 minutes, well you do need to. After cooking the first pan for the max of 10 minutes they still felt undercooked. But after the 5 minutes they firmed up. So don't over cook them. You will end up with one tough cookie. But over all this is a GREAT recipe. I plan on making them again.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2009
A-ma-zing! Make it as stated, but with only 1 Tbsp honey. The anchovy paste adds an extra dimension that I highly recommend. It's suttle and not fishy at all. You can buy it in a tube at any grocery store and it lasts forever. We made triple the recipe and used the left overs (plus water) the next day to put over pasta.

Caramelized Onion and Horseradish Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2008
Very nice twist on regular mashed potatoes. I omitted the horseradish (I forgot it), and all 5 of us loved it. Would suggest that the onions are cut up more than just 'sliced into rings' because it was somewhat difficult to eat with long rings. Very good flavor.

Pumpkin Pear Strudel

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2008
We thought that this was just OK. The ingredients seemed like they would go together better. Make sure that you dice up the pears small so that they will cook through. Will not make again. The presentation was why I gave it a 3 stars instead of 2 stars. My hungry teens didn't even want to finish their piece. Sorry.

Double Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
I made these with my 12 year old daughter. We are both big chocolate fans and this one fit the bill! They were amazing! You must not overbake them. The bake time will depend on the size of your cookies. Like the recipe says, 9-11 minutes. Great dipped in milk.

Lemon Herbed Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2008
This is sooo good! We have fish twice/week. Finally, a wonderfully different way to make Salmon. I followed the recipe except: 1. olive oil instead of butter 2. seasoned bread crumbs instead of fresh 3. sprinkle with lemon before serving I made them with Greek Style Potatoes from this site. Even better the next day. Thank you.

Lemon Supreme Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
Just make it! You will not be sorry. I have made it about 10 times and have tried to tweek it on several occasions. Even though it is always incredible, this is one of the few recipes that I suggest that you don't change a thing.

Bacon Wrapped Water Chestnuts II

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
My family didn't care for these. We had to cook the wraps about 35 minutes without the sauce to make sure the bacon was crispy. Sorry, but we prefer the traditional sauce with ketchup and brown sugar.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2007
Yes, yes, yes!!! Incredible hit with my family, including 3 children (11, 12 and 14). They continued to take extra helpings until it was all gone. I added a 1/2 Tbls. cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it. I also simmered the garlic for a bit in the butter first to meld the flavor. Thank you so much! This is a great recipe for any day or special occasion. The cashews make it 'gourmet treat'.

Lemon-Maple Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2007
Not as good as I anticipated even though the ingredients are all ones that I love. Family poo-poo'd it. Will not make again.

Ali's Amazing Bruschetta

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2007
Delicious, but please.....if you have fresh herbs, use more! It's not only healthy, but unbelievably tasty. I used about 2 Tbsp. or more each of basil and parley - so fresh. Also as the others have stated, I used 1 large minced garlic clove (also healthy). What made this over the top easy was that I purchased prebaked toasts instead of cutting up the Italian loaf bread. The kind I used was Nonni's Garlic Parmesan Panetini Toast from Costco. You can use any prebaked toasts. My family, including a 10, 12 and 14 year old thought that it was a keeper. I have this bookmarked under "Recipes - Summer". Thank you Ali!

Greek Tzatziki

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2007
This is so good! To make it creamier, I put the yogurt in a strainer lined with a paper towel (or coffee filter) to get rid of some of the whey for about an hour or two. I substitute balsamic vinegar for the lemon juice and zest. Use the large side of the grater for the cucumber or you will get a wet mush. I will use the whole cucumber. We always serve this with pork tenderloin or on our lamb burgers. It lasts several days. Efharisto(thank you)

Baked Whole Cauliflower

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2006
Wow! Nutritious, delicious and easy! I cut it in big chunks, used about 2 Tbsp. butter, brushed it on and sprinkled the rest of the ingredients on top. I omitted the red pepper flakes. There was none left in our family. Tasted almost sweet. Will never hesitate to buy cauliflower again!

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2005
This is one of my family's favorites!!! I make it at least once/month in the cold months. I use one large red onion. I add one box of frozen chopped spinach instead of the fresh spinach. I add it at the end and usually just put the whole block in. I usually increase all ingredients and freeze some, but without the vinegar. I add balsamic vinegar before serving. This is truly awesome!! Oh, my goodness! One more thing, the difference between this soup being good and unbelievable is the liquid that you add. DO NOT use water. I always save my veggie scraps in a freezer bag until I have enough to make broth. Strain and freeze until you need it or use it right away. You will not regret it.
