Irish Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2015
Look no further for an authentic tasting Shepherd's pie! I lived in Ireland for a year. Although Shepherd's pie is not regularly served in restaurants, it is more of a "family" dish (think American meatloaf or tuna casserole). Made this today with half lamb half beef. Left out the rosemary (glad I did), and subbed cut green beans (pre-cooked to soften) instead of peas because my husband doesn't like peas. Otherwise pretty much followed exactly. The cinnamon is key! The entire family loved it! Will definitely make again!

Crispy Rosemary Chicken and Fries

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2015
Delicious! I used skinless thighs, cutting off any additional fat. I cut the olive oil to 1/4 cup and felt that was plenty. I used fresh rosemary (worth it as others have said), dried oregano, and minced 5 small pieces of garlic (fresh garlic is a must!). The whole family loved it. Will definitely be making this again!

Moroccan Tagine

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2015
This was pretty good. I threw everything in a crockpot and cooked on high for 3 1/2 hours. Definitely gets stars for being healthy! The sodium is pretty high, though.

Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2014
I agree with the review "it's just not fudge-like." It is so easy to make, but not that creamy, melting-sugar-in-your-mouth feeling of fudge. It tastes more like eating chocolate. I won't be making it again.

World's Best Oreo® Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2014
Too sweet?! Say what? IT IS FUDGE. :) I reduced the sugar to 2 1/2 cups, and used a healthy 1 cup crushed chocolate cream Oreos IN it and probably 3/4 cup chocolate cream Oreos on top. I find the perfect fudge temperature is 238 degrees F (it boiled about 4 minutes for me). If you don't have a thermometer, it is so worth it. I used to deal with the "soft ball" stage thing, now I just stir and stir until it hits 238 and voila! This is my new favorite fudge!

Spinach Salad with Curry Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
I loved the smell of the curry roasting. I was worried the curry was going go overwhelm the salad, but it was just right! Used olive oil instead of vegetable oil, and just cooked turkey bacon in the microwave and just crumbled that in. Added chick peas (so good!) and tomatoes. Served to grandparents and children, everyone liked it!

Honey Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
Used a little less butter and included some chicken legs. I broiled the chicken for the last 2 minutes to crisp the skin a little. VERY good! Served with lemon basmati rice (recipe on this site).

I hollowed out bakery hamburger buns and stuffed them with the filling and topped them with the strawberries. I did add cinnamon to the eggs. My family LOVED this!

Super-Easy Rocky Road Fudge

Reviewed: May 31, 2013
5 stars for ease, 3 stars for WAY too many marshmallows! I used 2 cups and felt that was even borderline. I used 1/2 milk 1/2 dark and honey roasted peanuts as someone else suggested. I'd call it a winner when you are in a pinch!

Poppyseed Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
Loved this! I used about 1/4 cup chopped green onions and put them in the food processor (it did turn my dressing kind of green, but it didn't matter when I mixed it in). Instead of a cup of oil, I used 1/2 cup extra light olive oil. I used this dressing on spinach, peaches, blue cheese, and toasted pecans. Delicious!

SO quick and easy! I used frozen chicken breasts and cut them a few hours in. I used real butter, but reduced fat cream cheese and healthy request soup. Served over "No Yolks" egg noodles. I will definitely make this again!

Caramelized Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
These were delicious! Definitely NOT bland. I substituted the cayenne for 1/4 chili powder and used butter instead of oil. Other than that followed the recipe exactly. We LOVED them!

Sun-Dried Tomato Goat Cheese Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
I bought "herb" goat cheese, let it get soft, and spread it on the bottom of my dish. I then put chopped sun-dried tomatoes (the kind in oil) on top, and finally topped with sliced greek olives. Awesome with wine!
