Salmon with Tomatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2008
This was great- I made a few changes to the recipe, but it's a very easy recipe to work with. I loved it, and so did my hubby. Tasty, heart healthy, and simple!

Toffee Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
These are wonderufl. I cut down on the brown sugar and I cut down on the amount of frosting I made too. I made a few sandwich cookies, but just frosted only the tops of most of them and sprinkled toffee bits on those ones. I love the caramely flavor and crunch of the toffee bits.

Traditional Hot Cross Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
These are good and really fun to make! The dough smells wonderful. I left out the dried fruit. The icing is really thick and it piped out beautifully. I doubled the recipe and made 12 buns, but I'm thinking I should have made about 15, because the buns turned out a little too big. ;) They rose beautifully- very high. I used 1/3 cup white whole wheat flour in this recipe with great results.

Lemon-Thyme Cornish Hens

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
I thought these had really great flavor. I loved the lemon herb butter. They were easy to make too. I forgot to check the hens' cavity for spare body parts...oops. Oh well- these still turned out great! We only wish the skin had crisped up more, but it may have been something I did.

Cinnamon Ice Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2008
This is really good, but a litte too sweet- hence the 4 stars. I should have followed some reviewers who used 3/4 cup sugar. It's really good and tasty though, especially for a cinnamon lover. I should have strained the cooked mixture before refrigerating, because I had tiny bits of egg white in mine. It was totally my fault- I probably overcooked it a little. Straining would have taken care of that though- I'll make sure I do that next time (and with any cooked ice cream recipe).

Sweet and Sour Sauce II

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
This is a good basic sauce recipe. It comes together very easily and thickens nicely. I didn't like the chunks of pineapple- maybe next time I'd just use pineapple juice instead of water and get the flavor that way. We had these with egg rolls.

Fried Rice Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
This was pretty good. It was very easy, which was nice. It could have used more flavor (and my rice was cooked in chicken broth). I added a splash of soy sauce. It would be a great basic recipe to expand upon. My husband made this tonight for dinner while I was frying egg rolls.

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2008
My hubby and I just loved these! I cooked the pork mixture in the morning (cooking the carrots and cabbage w/it, and adding a few TBS. of chopped onion and a dash of soy sauce). Then I put it in the fridge until dinnertime, when I was ready to make dinner. The folding directions were really good on this recipe- which was good for me, since I've never made anything like these before. I loved the flour paste too- it was just like glue and my egg rolls stayed shut tight. These made way more than 8- I don't know how many egg wrappers my package had, but I believe it was about 20, and the pork filling was the exact perfect amount for the 20 egg wrappers. I fried these in my small 8-inch skillet in about an inch of canola oil- 3 at a time. I kept the temp of the oil steady (with the help of my instant-read thermomter). We had these with fresh pineapple, sweet and sour sauce and fried rice (both from this site).

Baked Asparagus with Balsamic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2008
Oh wow, I loved this!! I sprayed my baking sheet w/olive oil spray, and then drizzled regular olive oil on top, and shook the pan around to coat. I loved how roasting the asparagus made it a tiny bit crispy on the tips. And the balsamic sauce.... I could drink that!! I did cut the soy sauce in half because I wanted to taste more balsamic than soy. I think that was a good move on my part. I used low-sodium soy, like always. And I made the sauce in the microwave. I ate way more than my share of this asparagus. What a great recipe!

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2008
This was quite good. I had huge chicken breasts so I pounded them, but couldn't get them very thin. They still took forever to cook! I used just 2 breasts, (they were probably the size of 4 regular ones) and used 2/3 cup cream since everyone else said it needed more sauce. (Looking back, I probably should have just used 1/2 cup, but oh well!) I omitted the salt and didn't rinse the capers. The chicken was still very tender even after taking so long to cook through. I enjoyed the cream sauce. Served with a Trader Joe's rice pilaf and veggie.

Texas Sheet Cake V

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
This cake is really good. I used half whole wheat pastry flour. The batter is easy to make. I used my stand mixer to mix it; I wasn't sure if I should do that or do it by hand. When 5 minutes were left on the timer (for my cake baking) I started making the frosting. You have to work really quickly with the frosting because it sets up really fast. It almost didn't spread to the edges of my cake, and my cake was still pretty warm. I love the frosting!

Yummy Pesto Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
These potatoes were really good. I used red potatoes and just left the skin on. I followed LadyJayPee's advice about using a bit of sour cream. I also used lots more pesto- probably about 1/2 cup. We had this with our St. Patrick's Day meal. My baby could not get enough of these! Everyone liked them.

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2008
This is a wonderful pie- I loved it. It came together beautifully too. The texture was perfect- the lemon filling was perfectly firm and the meringue was high and fluffy. One thing- my lemon mixture thickened a lot even before it started to boil, so at that point I added the butter, then tempered the egg yolks and stirred for about 2 more mintues, and by that time it was very thick so I took it off the heat. Thanks for the great recipe, Grandma! ;)

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2008
I made a recipe just like this, except using white almond bark instead of semi-sweet chocolate for dipping. These are SO good!! I drizzled melted milk chocolate chips on top for a professional look. I gave some away as a gift and the recipient was just raving. They are easy, but time-consuming with all the dipping.

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
These are pretty good. I didn't use the blender because I enjoy texture in my pancakes. I cut down on the salt and it was still too much. I used whole wheat pastry flour and these were still light and fluffy. Gotta love buttermilk in pancakes!

Stephen's Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
These cookies are so good. I followed the recipe, adding all of the chips and nuts. I used one cup of whole wheat pastry flour and baked for exactly 9 minutes. They were a perfect texture for me. I don't like plain chocolate chip cookies so these are a good alternative. My kids (and myself) couldn't stay out of them!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2008
These are pretty good, but I think there may be too much cream of tartar. I noticed an aftertaste. Besides that, though, they were good. I used all butter and part whole wheat pastry flour. I got exactly 3 dozen out of the recipe. I took reviewer's advice and used 3 tsp. sugar and 3 TBS cinnamon, but I had some leftover so I'm not sure I needed that much. ***** Tried these the day after baking and can't taste the cream of tartar anymore! They are 5 star now. ;)

Way Easy Pizza Sauce/Bread Stick Dip

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2008
This was a good easy sauce. I liked how it included fresh garlic and was made with common items I always have on hand. I used this for two pizzas.

Vegetarian Tortilla Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
I really enjoyed this. The night I made it though, I didn't think it was that good. It reminded me of a chain restuarants tortilla soup (not a compliment, lol!) Two days later, I heated the leftover for lunch, and I couldn't get enough!! It was so good. This recipe is almost too easy to make, too. I thought the tortillas in there would be wierd, but I liked them. I'll most likely make this again!

Greek-Style Rib Eye Steaks

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
These were SO good! I used petite sirloin steaks and just cooked until my meat thermometer read 160. I loved the way the herbs formed a yummy crust on the steaks. I loved the lemon flavor too, and the feta on top. I just left off the olives since I was serving these with a Greek salad that already had olives. This made a yummy Valentine's Day dinner with that salad and some pasta.
