Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2015
Pretty good! I made my own stock by boiling the hambone and veggie ends for an hour + in the water. I was leery of the mustard, but it was subtle and quite nice. I liked this dish quite a bit, but I was the only one in the family to get seconds of it, hence the 4 stars. Thanks!

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2014
Fantastic! I have made the other hi-rated Roasted Red Pepper Hummus on this site, and this is FAR superior. I was looking for a replacement to the Trader Joe's version that they no longer sell, and this was exactly it. I love it! Oh, I did add a tablespoon of oil to get the consistency that I wanted, but that is my only modification. I've made it twice now, and it's about 1 juiced lemon and one big scoop of tahini... that makes it even easier. Thanks!

Chicken Pot Pie III

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2014
My first foray into the pot pie - this was very good! I made my own crust (allrecipes 'pot pie crust') and this filled a 11x7 dish perfectly. I think that the cream of celery flavor (I have never really used it in anything) came through a bit too strongly for me... I did use the Healthy Request version. I don't think it was the thyme, though I did reduce it a bit. I'll use this as a template for sure, but I don't care much for the full fat (+MSG) cream of potato that I used. Considering the amount of prep time and quality of product, this was a solid four stars and a great beginning. What more could you ask for in a recipe really, other than a full tummy and a great place to start tinkering. THANKS!

Crust for Veggie Pot Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2014
Easy, simple. Came out flaky, just like I wanted. I did prick the bottom with a fork and throw it in the oven for 5 min (425) by itself before loading with pot pie. I can't say how much it helped, but the bottom wasn't the least bit soggy. (Once I filled it, I brought the heat down to 400 and cooked for 30 min with foil on the edges, 30 min without). THANKS! I will use this instead of buying for sure. EDIT: I've used this a second time, prebaking the bottom, and then just putting the top on without foil for 30 min, watching until it browned up. Fantastic!

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
Very good recipe. I threw in a can of rotel, diced red onion, diced green pepper. I think you definitely have to blend half of the soup at the end or it's texture just isn't right. Also - I soaked the beans overnight, but I think a bit of boiling would have been better - like people said. I will make again for sure. Thanks!

Slow Cooker Fifteen Bean Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2014
Haha, whoops, I thought I was on a different recipe and hit submit. Not sure how to undo this. I gave it 5 stars though, but didn't make it. SORRY ALL!

Easy Spicy Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2014
Very easy to do, potatoes were creamy on the inside. The chili powder was really the genius here, giving a great hidden bump in flavor without really taking it to a spicy level. My kids all loved it, and we'll make again since we've always got some extra potatoes around.

Sweet Potato Pie I

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
Really great pie! I never got the knife to come out clean but my father in law, who is a baker, told me that I can just "jiggle" it and see if it all moves as a unit. Then it's good to go! Thanks for the recipe!

Oh My Gosh Muffins

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
Swapped out Choc. chips for walunts, and mixed them in before the bananas, which I did last, to keep chunky. These were great! Thanks.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2010
Maybe I shouldn't have used reduced fat peanut butter. I made these at about 1 teaspoon size, and they were just okay.
