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!

Sweet Candied Orange and Lemon Peel

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
I loved these and wish I had made a quadruple batch, although it would've taken all day! I followed the directions, and used a vegetable peeler to peel the skin off of the oranges, then sliced them into thinner strips. Since they were thin, I boiled them once for the 20 minutes as stated, then in the sugar syrup for approximately 10 minutes. I strained them out of the syrup using a fine mesh strainer (and a spoon to help), saving the simple syrup. Once drained, I laid the peel on wax paper to dry for about an hour, then rolled and pressed them in sugar. They turned out beautiful, and delicious. I can't wait to figure out how to use these candied peels, if I can stop eating them! As stated, SAVE your syrup to sweeten coffee & tea, and to brush on cake layers to combat dryness--this syrup would be especially good on a poppyseed cake.Also, lime peel did not work for me. They turned pretty hard, and although still edible, they did not have the same nice texture the orange peels had. Can't wait to try this technique with lemon & grapefruit!

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
These were delicious and relatively easy. I took some advice of other reviewers and mixed everything in the food processor, adding more breadcrumbs until the mixture was thick enough to form into patties. Instead of serving them on buns, we topped them with pomegranate guacamole and/or sour cream mixed with mango salsa. Wonderful vegetarian meal!!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
As written, these are WAY too runny. I wonder if it should read 1/2 cup of milk instead of 1 1/2? I was able to salvage them by adding 1/3 cup more flour, 1/4 cup more oats, some ground walnuts, and a few extra mini chocolate chips to the tops while cooking. After the modifications, my family all enjoyed them!

Pistachio Crusted Chicken Breasts with Sun-Dried Cherry and Orange Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
This was perfect as written! My entire family loved it. You have to allow the sauce to cook long enough to reduce or else it will not be thick. This is going in my 'Family Favorites' file, and it would be fantastic to serve on holidays and for company. 5 stars all the way!

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2010
If I could give this 10 stars I would--This is my family's new favorite meatloaf! You can't go wrong by using whole grain instead of breadcrumbs. The quinoa gave this a fabulous bite and texture, and it is seasoned extremely well. I added chives from the garden for color, and next time, will probably top it with BBQ sauce. **It's really important to not use ground turkey breast because it will turn out too dry and colorless. A winner for sure! Thanks for sharing!

Jalapeno Cheddar Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
My family LOVED this cornbread. I did add a small can of drained, diced jalapenos and some shredded cheddar. This is a great recipe to customize, and will be my staple cornbread from now on. Thanks for sharing!

Chicken Calvados

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
This was good, but the sauce is veeerrrrryy rich. I loved the creativity of the recipe, as I have never had these ingredients together before, but I can't give 5 stars because my family didn't love it. It was a beautiful entree and to present it, I didn't add the chicken to the sauce, but spooned the thickened mixture over the chicken. If I could rate it 4.5 stars, I would. Thanks for sharing such an interesting recipe!

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
Fabulous! I did use all whole wheat flour and it turned out great--enough for 2 generous pizzas. Chewy, versatile (you could add some Italian herbs and/or grated parmesan for extra flavor), and easy. I LOVE the fact that there are minimal ingredients. Why buy premade crust again? Thanks for sharing!

Baked Apples with Mint

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
I did alter the recipe a little bit--not the ingredients, just the method. I only had 2 apples for the 3 of us, so I cut them in half, cored them with a tablespoon, and filled them with the raisin mint mixture. My daughter LOVED these, and it's a creatively different way to use up some mint from the garden. We will make these again, they were delicious!
