Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I am re-reviewing it now that I've had a few years of cooking under me belt! I used about 1.5x the cheese, and it was a mix of cheese-ends from a cheese counter and an extra hunk of red liciester (think a flavorful, nutty mild cheddar). Needed an ounce more milk. Because it was halved, cooked in about 75mins. Chopped the onion, added garlic, added salt, cooked in a glass casserole with a lid on the entire time. Perfect and delicious.

Caramel Brownies III

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
Super good, super cheap, super easy. Everyone loves them. Put a brownie in a bowl and microwave for 5 seconds (no more), add a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and taste the magic unfold! No joke. Amazing.

Ghirardelli® Individual Chocolate Lava Cakes

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
Simple to make and very delicious. I didn't have Ghirardelli bittersweet chips or bars on hand, so I used Baker's Semi-sweet squares, but I added 1/4-1/2 tsp dutch cocoa powder to the center mixture and the cake mixture, which worked out just fine. It was still so deep and rich and chocolatey that it was quite necessary to serve with whipped cream. I loved how simple the recipe was, too, and you can store the separate parts in your fridge for a couple days for when you desperately need something terrifyingly chocolatey and are ready to dirty a ramekin...

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
These were delicious and easy, and my mother, who knows I can't cook, liked them too! I added two huge cloves of garlic (minced), and for the cheese I had the "pizzaria" Kraft blend (from making pizza, it's mozz, prov, parm) so I just used 1 cup of that. Also I didn't use up all the mix yet (make them as we want them) but I'm definitely going to get more than 4. I think they need salt/pepper though, and I might throw in some italian spices on the next. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
Perfect! I cut the recipe in half and make one loaf in a 9x5 pan, and it's the perfect size. I cut it down to 1 egg. I cooked mine for 35 mins, then left the oven open and the bread in to cool. SO good!!

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
This recipe is now my fruit pie recipe. I used it with Grandma Ople's Apple Pie, and for the Apple Pie Bars recipe (I doubled this one and used it after theirs didn't work out too well). It was perfect, flaky, delicious. I ended up using all of the water, and found it best after just 10 minutes in the fridge rather than a full 30. If this were eBay, "Will do business with again A+++++++!"

Oven Baked Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
You might be my hero. I've been trying to figure out how to make restaurant-style potato wedges without frying them or buying them, and this was it. I used Yukon Golds and seasoned bread crumbs. I added a little salt/pepper/parmesan, and I found that the breadcrumbs that were cooked on the bottom side of the wedge were the best part of the fries, all mashed together into the potato. Cooked at about 410F. I've never been so excited about potatoes!! Thank you!

German Apple Pancake

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
I didn't really know what to expect, but it turned out to be DELICIOUS. It's like eating hot apple custard. I did everything just as written but doubled the cinnamon and the apples. I had some the next day too and still delicious!! Mine looks *exactly* like LESLEYfromWI's photo, too, edges and all. Keeping this recipe for a lonnnnng time.

Quick and Easy Home Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Super tasty and super easy. I used Yukon Gold and dried the potatoes before putting them into the skillet. Super easy. I also added some garlic powder and for the second half I cut up 1/4 of an onion and mixed it. I'm eating them right now and they are perfect! Thank you for this!

Challah I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2009
It was wonderful. 25 minutes of cook time was plenty, not 40. I halved the recipe (of the 3 eggs, only 2 are used in baking and 1 in decorating, so just use 1 egg for baking when you halve it), and the one loaf was HUGE. I made it last night, and it's still moist and delicious. I don't really know what challah should take like, and I wouldn't mind an eggier bread (1 egg does't make too eggy a bread, as you might expect), but, really, it is light and fluffly and flavorful. If this were eBay, I would rate this "A+++ will do business with again"

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
Perfect, simple cornbread. I cut the recipe in half and put it into a 6-in round glass dish, and instead of using store-bought buttermilk, I did the milk-and-vinegar method in the microwave, draining it slightly before adding (seeing as the recipe uses baking soda, I will use LEMON instead of vinegar next time. derp). Cooked for 31mins at 175C.

Elegant Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2012
Perfect! I loved it. I didn't add salt, but I used a little "veggie stock pot" to make the broth, and those are salty. I don't like mushrooms, but we got them in our CSA box, so here we are. My husband loved it, which is good enough for me. I used 3 large white mushrooms. I also appreciate that this recipe was written for 2 servings rather than 4 or 6 and making me cut it down.

Baked Custard

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
It tastes very good (and to those claiming it's too eggy, what else do you expect from custard?), but I can't seem to not have some holes inside when I dig in and a little liquid extra in it. I think I might try reducing the water by 1/8-1/4 of a cup. It's soooooo easy! I store the leftover liquid in the fridge (aged custard is always tastier), then pour into a single 6oz cup and bake without a water bath, it turns out just fine and delicious! I put a lot of nutmeg on top.

Quinoa with Chickpeas and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
The addition of the red onion seems completely necessary. Delicious! I halved the recipe and made a few alterations. I did 1/2c quinoa to 1c water (and then some), 2/3c garbanzo beans, a whole (small) tomato, 1 (HUGE) clove of garlic, 1.5 limes juiced, no olive oil (forgot), 1 tsp cumin, and half of a (small) red onion. Super tasty!! My boyfriend and I love it.

Chef John's Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
Great, easy, and easily changeable recipe. I used half canned peaches and half fresh rhubarb. Instead of Chinese 5 Spice, I used a bit of ginger. Came out very good, although the top started to burn before it was really set. This could have been my weird oven, though. I cooked part in an 8-inch glass dish and part in a smaller, 3x7 disposable dish so I could give a bit to my neighbor. I still had about 3/4 cup of the fruit mix leftover, so I simmered it down and am freezing it for another great adventure.

Florida Strawberry Muffins

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
Very tasty! I made them just as directed, but I used about 1 3/4 C chopped strawberries, and they're just coming into season, so they were sooooooooo juicy! I had no problems with a dry batter at all (lots of juice!), and the cupcakes were very moist. I only made 6 for now, and I put the other 6 into muffin liners in the freezer so I can make one whenever I want. Before baking, a did sprinkle some raw/turbinado sugar onto the tops of them so they would get that delicious crispy top. A great way to use up some super ripe strawberries that are on their last leg or an abundance of fresh berries, for sure!

Quinoa with Chickpeas and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2011
Delicious! I halved the recipe and made a few *tiny* alterations. I did 1/2c quinoa to 1c water (and then some), 2/3c garbanzo beans, a whole (small) tomato, 1 (HUGE) clove of garlic, 1.5 limes juiced, no olive oil (forgot), 1 tsp cumin, and half of a (small) red onion. Super tasty!! My boyfriend and I love it. The lime is great, and the red onion (per another member's suggestion) is totally necessary.

Tomato Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
Very tasty bread. Maybe next time I'll throw some lightly roasted tomatoes in as well. Over all, a very moist bread with a hard crust and a nice flavor. I made a few changes to the herbs based on what I had, but I don't think that matters so long as the tomato shines through. Also, I never have ketchup here so I took canned whole tomatoes, about 1/2 cup, and pressed the juice out of them, then added a little extra salt and sugar. I'll certainly be making this again, but I'm going to try some more flavor combinations and extra extra basil. I might try a tomato juice reduction first too, intensifying the flavor. Thanks for posting this simple and tasty recipe!

Orange Marmalade Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
The texture was amaaaaazing. They were like tiny cakes! I give this recipe 5 stars for ease, texture, and flexibility. I can't get Smucker's here, and my marmalade was a bit bitter and also weak in flavor. I compensated by using extra marmalade. The cookies were very nice. They were not too sweet nor bitter, and the bitterness actually helped balance them out well. I made frosting, but I did not end up using it for these as I thought they were great by themselves. For a few batches, I sprinked a bit of turbinado sugar on top before baking to give them a crunchy top.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
I accidentally made this with couscous (need to pay more attention!), but it was great. I'm guessing it'll be even better with quinoa!
