Lemon Meringue Icebox Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
This is a great pie. It's easy, delicious, and uses items that most cooks keep on hand. I doubled the filling and used it for 1 9-inch pie and 4 mini pies. I overbeat the meringue, but that was my fault. So it wasn't all fluffy and nice like a meringue should be, but it still tasted good. The filling was cool, creamy, tart and sweet. I used Graham Cracker Crust II for this. I like how you get the taste of a lemon meringue pie without the work!

Veggie Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
I've finally found it- the perfect recipe for bean veggie chili!! I love Stagg's Garden Vegetable Chili, but would like it to be more "fresh" and less salty. Well, this is like a fresher, healthier version of that chili. I just love it! I omitted the mushrooms, added one jalepeno and had to use roasted red peppers for the red ones because I was out of fresh. I made this in the crockpot and it worked out perfectly. I added about 1/2 cup of water but around midday, it was too thin so I added a 6 oz. can of no-salt tomato paste. I love, love, love this recipe! It makes A LOT too- we'll be enjoying this for a few days- yay! I might try freezing some. I served this with Fry Bread I for dinner. Oh, my one-year old loved this too. He just ate and ate and ate. Good for the whole family!

Fry Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
This was good. I was going to rate it a 4 due to the slight baking powder taste I detected, but my daughter insisted that I rate it a 5!! I wonder if I should have let it rest a while before forming patties and frying- the ones I did last puffed up a little more than the first ones I fried. All of my kids loved these. We had these for dinner with Veggie Vegetarian Chili.

Super Fajita Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
This was very yummy on chicken fajitas. I was out of cilantro, sadly, but it would have made it even better. Instead of coriander or anise, I added chili powder and cumin. I loved the lime. It wasn't too limey. If you don't love limes, obviously this recipe isn't for you. I marinated chicken strips for about 10 hours in this, and then cooked them with strips of red onion and red and green bell pepper. Had them on whole-wheat tortillas with shredded pepper jack. Really yummy!

Cranberry-Cardamom Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
These are really delicious. I tasted one when they first came out of the oven, but wasn't too impressed. I think they need to sit for a little bit to let all the flavors meld. After a few hours you could really taste the cardamom, and they were so yummy. I cut the recipe in half, doulbed the cardamom, and used part whole wheat pastry flour. I also used one full cup of cranberries. After they were cooled, I made a simple glaze of powdered sugar and milk and dipped the tops into that. These looked beautiful and rose high, too.

Fast and Friendly Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
Wow, I really loved these!! I didn't think they'd be that exciting but they were great. I added about 1-2 TBS. of water to the mix. I'm squeamish, so I didn't like mixing it with my hands but you don't have to do it very long at all- just get everything incorportated. Then I used my cookie scoop to form the meatballs. I had to use a 9x13 and a 8x8 pan. When I turned them over, I salted them lightly. They were done in the time stated (used my meat thermometer). We had these with Chunky Marinara sauce, from this site, and whole wheat angel hair and steamed broccoli. The whole family loved them. I'll be making these again, I'm sure.

Chunky Marinara Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
Great basic sauce. I didn't have an 8 oz. can of tomato sauce, so I used a 6 oz. can of tomato paste and added 4 ounces of water. Let it simmer, covered, for quite a while, until dinner was ready. Added a little fresh basil and no salt. Had this with Fast and Friendly Meatballs, from this site, whole wheat angel hair, and steamed broccoli.

Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
This was realy good. I used 8 oz. of pasta instead of 16 and added a couple chopped, sauteed chicken tenders to make it a main-dish meal. I tasted the pesto before adding it to the pasta and it was somewhat bitter, so I was worried, but after being mixed into the pasta and adding the chicken, it tasted great and not bitter at all. I used lime juice instead of vinegar, and 3 cloves of garlic. Also used 1/4 plus 1 TBS. of quality olive oil. I used whole wheat penne. Served with a veggie for a simple and tasty dinner!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2008
This is a nice, tasty, basic curry dish. It was a little too soupy, so if I made it again I'd leave out the small can of tomato sauce. I used coconut oil instead of veg. I added the whole onion. Served with brown jasmine rice and steamed broccoli. Garnished with fresh cilantro, which was a nice addition.

Easy Swedish Pancakes

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
I made these exactly as written, and the batter was a mess when I tried to cook it. I added another 1/2 cup of flour and then it was perfect. I don't understand the instructions to cook, then cut up and flip, so I just cooked these, one by one, like crepes on my 8-inch skillet. Then spread lingonberry jam on them (from IKEA), rolled them up, dusted with powdered sugar and ate them. Very tasty and good!!

Fry Bread Tacos II

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2008
Five stars for the actual fry bread. I did make a few small changes. My mom learned how to make fry bread from a Navajo woman and she gave me a few suggestions. Add a little bit of fat to the actual dough to make the fry bread tender- I used about 1-2 tsp. olive oil (not authentic, but oh well). Also, instead of just a depression in the center, she always makes a small hole. This allows it to cook evenly. I fried in a mix of canola, olive, and coconut oil (ran out of canola). I made 6 fry breads out of this recipe (some smaller than others). I used my instant-read thermometer to measure the the temp of the oil. These turned out perfect, and so yummy! The topping was only 3 stars, at best- it's a little bit bland. Next time I would just make my own thick chili to top these with. I thought kneading the dough would be difficult, but it really wasn't. It was a little sticky, but I only added a couple pinches of extra flour and it handled just fine- turned into a nice, silky dough. I enjoyed making these! I ate too many, and I don't make fried foods often (harldy at all) so I'll probably wait a little until I make them again, but I really enjoyed them!

Soft Garlic Breadsticks

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
These are good- I made them by hand. They had a little trouble rising for me; it took about 2 hours to get the dough to the right volume on the 1st rise, but that was ok. I liked how they had fresh basil- I added some extra. I used one cup of white whole wheat flour. I added a few sprinkles of garlic salt to the melted butter before brushing it on. Went very well with a pasta meal.

Tamra's Lemon Artichoke Pesto

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
I really liked this. But wow, that's a lot of garlic! I used 5 good-sized cloves and had to eat like 5 peppermints after dinner to get rid of the taste- lol. But it's worth it! ;) I made this and then boiled some pasta (whole wheat rotini and mini penne) and mixed the pesto with the pasta right after draining. (I used 8 oz. pasta and most of the pesto sauce with it- probably have a little over 1/2 cup leftover). I'll probably use the extra as a dip. I used jarred artichokes and omitted the canola oil. In it's place I added 1/4 cup water mixed with a tiny dab of "Better than Boullion". Then I added one large spoonful of the oil from the marinated artichokes I used. I mixed everything in the food processor- adding the artichokes and cheese after everything else was smooth, so that I could leave them semi-chunky. I also used basil instead of cilantro- I had it on hand. And I used the juice of 2 lemons. This was easy, different and tasted great! We had the pesto pasta with broccoli and breadsticks.

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2008
We really enjoyed this. I added on onion and cut the chili powder in half like some other reviewers. For the vinegar, I used half red wine, half white balsamic. I only had to simmer about half the time listed before the chicken was done. I only made two breasts, but kept the sauce the same- we used it over brown rice, and had broccoli on the side.

Breadsticks with Parmesan Butter

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
Oh wow- I loved these!! I cut the recipe in half (18 servings) and used only the egg yolk. I also subbed one cup of the AP flour with white whole wheat flour. I tried adding as little flour as possible while kneading them, but the dough was impossible to work with. I probably added around 1/2-3/4 cup extra. I also added about 1 tsp. of Italian seasoning to the dough. As they were baking, I melted 2 tsp. butter and added a few sprinkles of garlic salt to that. I brushed this mixture over the breadsticks as soon as they came out of the oven, and then topped them with shredded parmesan. These were soooo good, light and fluffy, and flavorful!! We had these for dinner tonight with a green salad. They were popular with the whole family.

Lime Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
I made just the meringue from this recipe to go on "Easy Key Lime Pie I" from this site. It called for 5 egg whites, so it was perfect. I think it called for a bit too much sugar- I would use only 1/2 cup next time. But it was easy to whip up and tasted great on the pie. I'll try using the rest of this recipe next time.

Easy Key Lime Pie I

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2008
This was really good! I've been wanting to try this recipe for a while because of how easy it looked. It was easy, and delicious too. I loved the creamy tart flavor. I made the recipe as written- later I decided to make a meringue from the leftover egg whites to top the pie with. I used the meringue topping from "Lime Meringue Pie" on this site, since it called for 5 egg whites. I baked the pie alone first, and then made the meringue a few hours later.

German Pancake

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
This was very good. I reduced the sugar to 1 cup and it was still very sweet. Use a large saucepan for the syrup because it might boil over otherwise! I love German pancakes- and they are very easy to make.

Easy Ham and Cheese Appetizer Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2008
These were very good- I scaled the recipe down to only 6 rolls to make dinner for my husband and I. I used King's Hawaiian Wheat Rolls, provolone cheese, and spicy Danish mustard. We really enjoyed these.

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
This was indeed easy, but I didn't enjoy it very much. I was glad to find this recipe because I didn't have tahini on hand, but I think without the tahini, hummuss really suffers texture-wise. The flavor was good, but I couldn't get past the texture.
