Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
It was snowing and I had a craving for brownies without a box of mix in the house. I looked for a recipe that was quick and easy and found this. Start to finish, it took a little over half an hour (and most of that was cook time). A couple brownies later, my husband commented, "I don't think I can go back to brownie mix. These are so much better."

Creole Tuna

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
This was surprisingly tasty! I had leftover mahi mahi from making sushi and was looking for a “different” recipe to use it in. I pan fried the mahi mahi with a little salt and pepper, and decided to try it in this recipe. I made it as written, adding a little hot sauce at the end (after a taste test). I tossed it with whole wheat pasta and added some leftover roasted asparagus I had on hand. It was delicious, well rounded, filling, and satisfying! From start to finish, the entire dinner took about 15 minutes to throw together. Next time, I’ll add some onion and garlic, but it was wonderful as written!

Roasted Butternut Squash and Garlic Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
This was fantastic! I made three major changes: I used a sugar pumpkin instead of a squash, I made my own lasagna noodles (which I boiled for about a minute since they were raw), and added fresh nutmeg. I brought this to a pot luck and it was the first thing to go. The whipped cream sort of threw me, but since it was so moist and decadent, it might have been added just to make sure nothing dried out as it baked in the oven. I highly recommend this!

Unique Spinach Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Very good and surprisingly easy. Just to note, the way the recipe was worded, I thought that perhaps 1 & 1/4 cup of flour was an overestimation so I added flour very slowly. You don’t need to be as careful as me. It was a very dry day when I made these, and I definitely used over a cup and a quarter. Next time, I’d add the total flour, and then slowly work in more until the dough was manageable. Thanks for the recipe!

Parsley Spinach Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2011
Delicious and forgiving. I didn’t sauté the spinach and parsley to reduce the fat in this recipe, instead I added it right at the end so it would be bright green when I served it. To serve, I put it in soup bowls garnished with fresh parsley and parmesan cheese with sour dough rolls. This was delicious and I ate way too much of it. Absolutely a repeater!

Classy Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
Tasty and looks great on the plate. The flavor is similar to a classy chicken stroganoff. It was really easy to throw together and everyone got seconds. That makes it 5 stars in my book!

Caramel Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Tasted great. However I found the timing to be a little off as it took me longer than 2 minutes to get the caramel melted. I also had difficulty getting the caramel to stick to the apples. For some, I boiled water, dipped the apple in, and washed off the wax. For others, I didn’t bother. Didn’t make too much of a difference. By the next day, most of the caramel was on the wax paper with a thin coating around the apple. Not that it bothered anyone since they tasted amazing and looked lovely, but hopefully I can figure out how to get the caramel to set on the apples a little better.

Mashed Sweet Potatoes by Jean Carper

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
Tasty and easy. Never bothered with the “cooling off” and reheating part. I just mashed them hot and then served. The almonds really add something special. I microwaved 2 sweet potatoes (on the smallish side) for 3.5 minutes, flipped, 3.5 more minutes, flipped, then 2 more minutes, checked them, and 2 more minutes. I love that this doesn’t load them up with butter and cream, letting the sweet potato flavor really shine through.

Harvest Pork Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2010
This was really good! I made it in the slow cooker and used chicken instead of pork (I hate pork, but liked the sound of this recipe). I also used fresh herbs because, completely unintentionally, I had fresh rosemary and fresh sage on hand. I served it with sour dough rolls warmed in the oven. This was very good and tasted very light. Don’t skimp on the apple. It adds a hint of sweetness. Thanks for sharing! I really enjoyed this!

Chicken Tagine

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
Switched the carrots with sweet potatoes after I realized my carrots went bad. I also used fresh minced ginger. This turned out very tasty. A nice quick and easy meal for the middle of the week. Thanks!

Curried Quinoa Salad with Mango

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
This was my first foray into quinoa and it won’t be my last as I enjoyed it very much. I didn’t find this recipe too salty, but that is very dependent on the broth that you use (so taste test before adding the salt and add a little at a time). I made the recipe as is and taste tested each step of the way (just to see what adding each thing did for the flavor). I used an African curry that I brought back from Morocco which really complimented the sweet mango flavor well. For texture I added pine nuts right at the end. I also confess, I didn’t wait for this to cool down…I ate it hot and loved it. I’ll experiment a little with the leftovers (trying it cold for one). I think adding a squeeze of lime and a little cayenne could step this up a notch, but this was delicious as is.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
This was tasty! I sautéed some chicken breast and veggies while the noodles cooked, removed them, and then made the sauce to add to everything at the end in order to turn this into an entrée. Delicious, well rounded, and filling! This also involved minimal cleanup and came together pretty quickly.

Rainbow Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Very good! Got great reviews at the cookout I brought it to. I added cherry tomatoes and marinated artichokes but otherwise followed the recipe. Looked great and it was the first salad to go!

Simple Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wraps

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
DH made these for me. Very tasty and easy enough he had no problem. I think I’d like yogurt instead of mayo for the spread by that’s just my preference (DH isn’t the biggest yogurt fan so he thought they were great as is).

Whiskey Hamburgers

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
These were great. I used bison instead of beef, Jim Bean whiskey, and Blue Moon beer. These were very moist and the whiskey imparted a nice smokey flavor. I forgot to throw in the Worcestershire sauce so I imagine they must be even better with it. Served with sweet potato fries and broccoli slaw. Thanks!

Chinese Cabbage Salad II

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
This was very good. I loved the dressing! Instead of vegetable oil I used sesame oil and since it’s pretty strong I added much less. Forgot the green onions at the store and didn’t miss them. Finally I also toasted the ramen noodles at 400 degrees for 5 minutes or so. Served with whiskey burgers and sweet potato fries I did on the grill. Perfect combo. Just a weird question but… why is this called Chinese Cabbage Salad II when there isn’t actually any cabbage in it?

T's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
I took the advice of others and nixed the precooking. I simply chopped the sweet potatoes into fries, added the seasonings and oil, and then cooked them on top of foil on the grill. I turned them once and they crisped up nicely. They had a great flavor and will be a repeater here. Thanks!

Pork Apple Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2010
I really enjoyed these. Now first, a confession: I used ground turkey. I just don’t like pork but I loved the idea of these flavors together. They were still outstanding. The flavor combination here is pretty special and the texture was wonderful. I topped them with provolone cheese and wished for some banana ketchup (since I ended up drying them out a little..oops). This will be a repeat performer during the summer months.

Honey Crunch Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
This was excellent! Made as directed but added more nuts (just so I could use the up). I don't normally like pecan pie so I was a little hesitant when one was requested of me. One bite made me a convert, though. Not too sweet, not too heavy, just delicious. Thanks for the recipe!
