Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
This is such an easy bread and it turned out great. I gave it only 4 stars though because the salt content needs altering. I used half the amount indicated (as other reviewers had suggested), and it was perfect. I used Buffalo Bill's pumpkin ale, and it complemented the brown sugar very well.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
This turned out really well, although I made some changes that I think improved the recipe. I used a 1.6 lb eye of round roast. I marinated the meat for a little over 24 hrs in the frig, which I think was the secret to the tenderness and flavor of the final product. I made a simple marinade of apple cider vinegar, dijon mustard, minced garlic, and salt and pepper. The vinegar really helped to tenderize the meat. I cooked the meat at 475 F for 12 minutes and then turned the oven off. I was shorter on time than I expected, so I turned the oven back on to 200 F after about a 1/2 hr. About another 1/2 hour later, I decided to check the meat since it was a much smaller roast than the recipe calls for. It was perfect with a light pink center. I might even take it out earlier next time. I sliced it very thinly and served it with an au jus sauce I made and with some horseradish. It turned out great. Eye of round is great because it is a leaner cut of red meat and is usually pretty inexpensive compared to other cuts of beef. For anyone who is trying to eat healthy but needs a red meat fix once in a while, this is a great option if you make sure it is well-trimmed of all excess fat. Thanks for the great cooking technique!

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
This recipe rocks! I love chicken salad, but this is really the best I've had. It even was great with a few healthful changes. This salad really incorporates a lot of flavorful ingredients. I used breast tenderloin and baked for 15 minutes at 375 with a little salt, pepper, and olive oil cooking spray only. Then I shredded the chicken and used reduced-fat olive oil mayo. I didn't have seasoning salt, so I just used a little poultry seasoning. I did not use green pepper because I don't like the flavor, and I think this is perfect without it. I added salt and pepper to taste and served it on whole grain sandwich buns that I lightly spread with a little mayo and mustard. With a crisp piece of green leaf lettuce, this is absolutely a great summertime meal.

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
I have other recipes for this that I much prefer. It was alright but a little too sweet and bland.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
Love it! I use a frozen pie shell from the store. Could not be easier, and yet it seems impressive to company. Also, quite budget friendly as well since eggs are cheap. Great for a brunch. Pair with a mimosa, and you're all set.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole I

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
This was just average to me. I took the advice of other reviewers and mixed everything up, but it just seemed like a weird starchy mixture of chicken and broccoli mush. I prefer to have various flavors and textures in my meals...maybe it's an Italian thing...but this was just too uniform for me in flavor and texture. I will give it points for being easy though. A decent kid-friendly recipe.

Spinach Tomato Tortellini

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
This is such an easy meal,and the cream sauce makes it elegant. Good enough for company with a nice salad, homemade garlic bread, and a bottle of wine.

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
5 stars with modifications. I add fresh cilantro from my herb garden and plenty of lime juice. I also add cayenne pepper and some crushed red pepper flakes for a little heat. Serve with shredded cheese and sour cream on top to balance out the heat from the pepper. My husband loves it with white tortilla chips to scoop up the rice and beans. Absolutely simple and flavorful!

Cake Mix Cookies VIII

Reviewed: May 3, 2009
So good! I love the versatility of this recipe. I use this recipe as a base to make my "hot cocoa" cookies. I add a little vanilla and fresh coffee to highlight the chocolate, along with other ingredients. Great for dessert or even a bake sale.

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2009
I will never use another pizza dough recipe or store-bought version again! This recipe is SO simple and it tastes wonderful. It makes a nice thick crust. I love it especially with my hawaiian pizza and buffalo chicken pizza. I really recommend trying this recipe at least once.

Spinach and Yogurt Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
This was ok. I appreciated the ease of preparation and the unique creamy texture. I doctored up the recipe a bit by adding 2 cloves of garlic, increased amounts of herbs and spices, and some crushed red pepper. I also added a teaspoon of fresh lime juice and a touch of cream at the end. Topped with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese. Overall it was pretty good with all of these modifications. I served it with corn bread (it's what I had in the pantry), but I think it would be good with homemade parmesan croutons on top. My initial thought on the color was that it would be a fun starter course for a St. Patrick's Day meal. Also, I didn't like the tarragon in it. Maybe next time I will try a little fresh basil. I'm willing to try it again, but I don't think it will become a frequent dish at my house.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Super easy and delicious. I add a handful of marshmallows which add a nice sweetness and chewiness. I also use jumbo semi-sweet chocolate chips. A great dessert when you don't have a lot of time. Also, it can be made with ingredients that are usually in the pantry already.

Brown Sugar Pie II

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
This pie tasted very good, but the texture was a little odd. Also, it did not have a very pretty presentation. Mine had cracks in the top. Also, while eating this pie, I realized it was missing something. Pecans! Even though I usually eat pecan pie just for the sugary filling, ironically I miss the pecans in this pie. I think in the future I will stick to pecan pie.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
This was surprisingly wonderful! I was a little hesitant because of the unique spices and not being used to cooking beef with them, but it came out great. I took the advice of some other reviewers and made it with some whole wheat egg noodles for an added starch for the meal. The potatoes in the dish just weren't enough for me. I also added a little more red pepper flakes to spice it up. I added a dollop of low-fat sour cream on top of each serving which was a nice contrast to the spicy beef. Overall, this was a great change from our usual meals, and I will definitely make again. Along with a good glass of cab, it is just perfect.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
I made this last night and followed the directions exactly. It was just ok. Even my husband, who usually devours my cooking, asked if we could add some olive oil or butter or something. If you are used to good home made Italian cooking (as we are since I'm Italian), this dish is not very good. It definitely needs some fat. I would definitely suggest drizzling some olive oil over the eggplant before baking them the first time. Frying in a little oil would probably taste the best. After all, most things probably taste better fried. I served this with spaghetti. My homemade sauce and the spaghetti definitely were the highlight of the dish...unfortunately.

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls I

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
These were quite good and a fun project when you have the time. Overall though, I will probably just buy the oven-ready cinnamon roll dough from now on. It's a lot easier. This is nice if you want something special and homemade.

Leek Potato Mushroom Cheddar Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
This recipe has too much going on. When I ate it, I felt like it was a combination of cream of mushroom and potato leek soup...with some random cheese thrown in. the flavors didn't complement each other well at all. I will definitely stick to the ham and potato soup recipe from this site. It is easier to prepare and so much tastier!

Crumb Topping for Pies

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
Ok, so this was actually one of the best things I have ever had, but I only gave it 4 stars because I modified things a little. I added the "crumb topping for pies" to the top of this once it was done which is what made it absolutely over the top wonderful. I just broiled it on low until it was lightly browned and the butter was melted. It was simply amazing!!! I will definitely make again. I used a frozen bag of blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries. Served with vanilla ice cream. Divine!

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
This turned out awesome, but I only gave it 4 stars instead of five since I made some modifications. I used only alfredo sauce instead of tomato sauce. It was amazing. I used Bertolli alfredo sauce. Also, I used a mozzarella/parm blend which was great. I omitted the feta on top since I'm not a fan. Also, I added a lot of spices to the spinach/artichoke mixture including garlic salt, onion powder, red pepper flakes, black pepper, salt, herbs de provence, celery salt, and a little poultry seasoning (just b/c I had it on hand). I just wanted to make sure it didn't turn out bland...as other reviewers had mentioned. It was great. Made it for company and the whole thing disappeared. Will definitely make again but never with tomato sauce.
