Camping Bars

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
These are great! Not too sweet, and completely portable, as long as they aren't being crushed. I can see many ingredient possibilities with this recipes--sub pecans for the almonds and add mini chocolate chips for a German chocolate version, add chopped dates or raisins for another. Thanks!

Shrimp Remoulade Galatoire's

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
I loved this remoulade! All others I've had in the past have been smooth, so I appreciated the thicker texture of this sauce. It really clings to the shrimp, and the flavors blend really well. The parsley is my favorite part of it because it gives a wonderful freshness. I would serve this for a true N'Awlins' dinner party. Thanks for a terrific recipe!

Crawfish Cornbread

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
I must admit, I was afraid of this recipe. Have you ever seen a crawfish? I'm a Southerner and had never eaten it, but this recipe intrigued me. The texture is a blend between a cornbread and a casserole, so the name is a bit misleading but...........I really liked it! If I make it again, I would add some more seasoning, maybe some minced garlic and Old Bay. It definitely reminded me of something you would find at a Southern family reunion--comforting and somewhat mysterious ; ).

Stuffed Tomatoes with Grits and Ricotta

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
This was truly delicious! We ate it with grilled shrimp instead of as an appetizer. If I did make it as an appy, I would make it in cherry tomatoes. Be sure to watch it at the end because a couple of my tomatoes split in the oven, and spilled on the pan which doesn't make a pretty presentation ; ). Delicious!

Cherry Balsamic Short Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Let me start out by saying this: We rarely eat beef at our house, maybe 6 times a year tops. This recipe was so delicious, my husband ranked it as one if the best things I've ever made AND he was looking for more when we were finished! I made it exactly as written, with the exception of discarding the veggies and cherries after taking the ribs out of the oven. When you work hard at it, why throw away the delicious flavor from those ingredients? Just pick out the bay leaves and herb stems, and serve with the ribs. Divine! Worthy of company, worthy of family dinner, and worthy of a 10 star review. Thanks so much for a delicious dinner!

Eat Your Veggies Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
This was good, but not fantastic. I was the only one in my family who did not add anything to improve the flavor of it once we started eating. I love all of the nice raw veggies that go into this salad and you can mix and match to suit your family's tastes (I added a few radish slices), but the dressing turned out sweet. It reminded me of a good coleslaw dressing. I'll definitely use this idea again, but will make a vinaigrette instead of the Splenda/mayo/vinegar dressing.

Radish Revival

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
My 9 year old daughter LOVED these, but she has an extreme affinity for radishes. I liked the simplicity and pure nature of this idea, but I think I would rather eat the radishes without the salt and pepper. This would make a BEAUTIFUL decoration for a rustic or French themed dinner table!

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
100 stars!! I have FOUND my fish taco recipe! I did use corn tortillas and could not use the adobo sauce because the rest of my family doesn't like spicy. Instead, I used a tsp of smoked paprika for the smoky flavor in the sauce. Fish tacos are my favorite food and now I can make GREAT ones at home! Next time, I think I'll try mahi-mahi. Wonderful recipe!!

Mom's Baby Berry Pies

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
These were a hit, and my 9 year old daughter was able to help since they're so easy to make. I didn't use the sauce since the pies are perfect on their own, but I think it would make a nice ice cream topping. So, next time if I need extra calories, I'll add a scoop of vanilla ice cream topped with the sauce ; )! Delicious recipe, thanks for sharing!

Slow Cooker Bolognese

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
This was GREAT and my family loved it. I definitely appreciated the convenience and lack of mess--normally when I simmer pasta sauce it splatters and creates a mess, but this solved the problem. It won't become my go-to bolognese, but it was flavorful and delicious!

Turkey Burgers with Brie, Cranberries, and Fresh Rosemary

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
These were DELICIOUS!!! I made a raspberry dijon to 'dress them' by mixing some melted raspberry preserves with whole grain dijon mustard, and they were fantastic. I'd love to make these for company, and next time I'll use my grill pan to cook them. YUM!

Green Onion Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
These were just okay as written. I would make them again, adding a full cup of sliced green onions for more flavor and possibly more cream cheese. These would also work as drop "biscuits" due to the texture of the batter, which is thick although when baked they are similar to a bread. I'll re-rate them if future changes help them a little.

Turkey Veggie Meatloaf Cups

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
10 stars!! Don't forget the barbecue sauce, it really enhances the flavor. I put all the vegetables in my food processor and chopped them together to make it easier. I love recipes that serve a dual purpose! Meatloaf plus veggies that don't have to be 'hidden' make this recipe a true winner. My whole family devoured these, and asked that they be placed in our meal rotation. Thanks for a GREAT healthy recipe!

Spinach Salad with Pistachio Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2011
Delicious!! My husband & daughter loved it and so did I. This is perfect for hot Summer days when you don't want to slave for hours over the stove, plus it's extremely healthy. I used a berry balsamic dressing and the salad became a definite family favorite.

Smoked Salmon Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
YUM! These were quick and easy, and my husband & I loved them. This is a great way to utilize salmon if you need to make a little go a long way. The quesadillas would make delicious appetizers, but we happily ate them as our main dish. Next time I may add some chopped chives, but they are wonderful as the recipe is written!

Rainbow Clown Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
10 stars! I baked this recipe into cupcakes, and striped the colors instead of swirling them. If you want to be a superstar with your kids or anyone else's, make this recipe! My daughter loved them, her friends loved them, and they were delicious. I topped them with a vanilla bean cream cheese buttercream frosting and they were fabulous--exactly how you would expect a birthday cake to taste! Perfect method LTH, thanks for sharing!! *Update--I frosted these cupcakes with this frosting. Fabulous combination! http://allrecipes.com/PersonalRecipe/62789942/Vanilla-Bean-Birthday-Cupcake-Frosting/Detail.aspx

Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
This was easy, but the end result was way too sweet as written. It actually crunched a little when biting down due to all of the sugar. I made it exactly as written, except I replaced the vanilla extract with vanilla bean paste (you get flecks of vanilla bean when you use this). To save it and cut down on the sweetness, I added 3 more tablespoons of butter, a pinch of salt, and 2 teaspoons of lemon extract. I'll try another buttercream in the future.

Zucchini Yogurt Multigrain Muffins

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
This is my kind of recipe! Chock full of healthy ingredients, they are also really delicious. I did add little flax seed meal and raisins, but gave them a whirl in my food processor (I also have a super-picky toddler who refuses textures). This recipe has many possibilities--next time I'll add some spinach leaves for even more nutrition. The texture is outstanding. Thanks for a great recipe!
