Frank's Spicy Alabama Onion Beer Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
this is simmering now and tastes wonderful so I am really excited to see how it tastes after a day or so. I have never really followed a recipe when making chili but decided to this time and yummmm the flavor are very tasty (I did omit the Jalapenos bc I dont have any and the red pepper flakes for my toddler). I also (from other reviews) added some cinnamon & cumin & WOW cinnamon really gives chili a kick and a lil ting on your tongue. Cant wait until 5:30 when my DH will be here and we EAT this yummy chili! Thank you for posting!

Vegan-Friendly Falafel

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
I just made these for the first time and they are very good! Somewhat time consuming and the fact that I had to use a tiny food processor added to the time...lol. I did use more garlic, cilantro, and rather than AP flour I used Chick Pea flour which I think is somewhat finer and had to use about 5tbsp of it. I made these into about 4 inche 'patties' and baked in the oven on 350. I baked the bottom and broiled the tops, in my opinion I think the broiling gave them a much crunchier top. Next time I may just broil both sides. These are very tasty with the "Real Hummus" recipe from here, thanks so much for sharing!

Love love loe this sauce!! I used it as a dip for some turkey pinwheels over Christmas and it was AWESOME! I used 2 jalapenos and white vinegar bc I didnt have white wine but is was super yummy! Tonight I am grilling chicken breasts and going to use this over them! We are also excited to try it on fish tacos and grilled salmon! This is a super easy quick sauce to keep on hand for many different dishes! THANK YOU!!!

I love French Onion Soup & had everything for this on hand. Do take the suggestions and add more butter, garlic, & worchestershire, but I did not care for the thyme & I only added 1/2tsp. GREAT recipe thank for sharing!!

Oyster Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
I grew up eating my grandparents Oyster Stew and loved it and have made it before but wanted to find a recipe with more substance, so tried this. WORD TO THE WISE, do not use FAT FREE 1/2 and 1/2 I got it by accident and it had a weird sweet taste that almost ruined the stew, I had to over salt & pepper it to cover that weird sweet taste. I too grated the celery, onion, and potatoe and the results were great, my husband who hates celery didn't even notice it!! Great recipe just get the correct ingredients ;)

Elegant Oyster Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2011
This is a FANTASTIC recipe!! I love regular Oyster Stew using milk/cream, butter and oysters, but decided to give this w try, YAY! I used my mini food processor to chop all the veggies uniformly& that cut the prep time drastically! I used a combo of veggie & chicken broth and a bottle of clam juice I had in the cabinet to add a lil more flavor and used the oyster juices as well. I doubled the recipe & omitted the cayenne bc my toddler but otherwise followed everything exactly, Oh I did only use 2-6oz cans of artichokes (and should have chopped them better). I highly suggest trying this, it is wonderful, the sage is very complimentary to the oyster flavor, this is a keeper!!

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
I recently have converted to veganism and have been paying 6.49 five days a week for a hummus wrap at Earth Fare. I knew I could make a hummus wrap much cheaper from home but just needed the right hummus recipe! This one is the first one I have ever tried and its great! I followed the posters update and used more tahini and two large garlic cloves, next time I will only use one large or two small. I may add the remainder of the chick peas from the second can (had to get 2-15oz cans) to even out the garlic flavor but I dont mind it, just trying to be cautious of my hubby and co-workers..lol. I can't wait to try this again and possibly use other yummy ingredients :)

Asparagus with Blue Cheese Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
I too tried this for a steak sauce and it was very very yummy and I cant wait to get some fresh asparagus so I can try them with it too. I also added about 5x the blue cheese the recipe called for because well we love blue cheese..lol. Very yummy and only had fat free cream cheese and was still very good! Thanks for sharing!

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
I read many granola recipies and settled on this one because I like Rice Crispy Treats..lol. I didnt use oatmeal, I did add 1/2 cup wheat germ. These taste so yummy and my daughter has ate them multiple times today. The possibilities are endless I bought tart cherries so I will be making cherry & walnut next!! THANKS!...ps I also think banana chips with pecans and maple syrup instead of honey, would also be tasty!

Corny Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
I doubled the recipe and the sour cream did over power a lil, I used fresh canned green beans and white corn from our garden so I may have under salted, but the sour cream taste was too strong for my taste. But will try again!!

Mendocino Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
WoOoWza!! So tasty!! I always my whole life made the same old same old Chicken Salad (mayo, onion, sweet relish, and boiled egg), but recently tried some with grapes and nuts and wanted to find my own to try at home. I went with this recipe, and on the note of another reviewer I added dried cherries. WOW! I followed everything to a T and it tastes great, my grocery store was out of fresh basil so I used dry and this recipe is FANTASTIC just as it is, how wonderful that you shared it! Also on a another note, I used one of those chopper things and prep time was a breeze, even for the almonds!!

Chicken Fajita Marinade

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
This is my 2nd time in a month making this marinade, 1st for fajitas and today just for grilled chicken, its delicious!!! I do not have cumin on hand but other than that I follow everything to a T. I make it in the morning and put it in a shaker bottle in the fridge and when I go to the fridge I give it a lil shake all day long (I am wondering if this could stay in the fridge for a few days or possibly be frozen in ice cube trays?). I marinade the chicken for 3 hours. I do add some srircha (sp) to it, for some kick and wow this is awesome!!! Use salt to bring out all the great flavors, its essential! Thanks for a great recipe, I LOVE IT!!

Ground Beef and Rice with Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
I didnt follow the recipe exactly so I am not sure how this would really taste. I used some rice I had from Saturday that also had black beans in it, and everything tastes good though. I didnt have chili powder either so I have no clue what this really tastes like, oh and I also used and Italian blend of shredded cheese and not velveeta. I will re-rate when I re-make with correct indg's. But it was good and we did like it and I will try it again the proper way!

Roasted New Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2009
Still in the oven but WOW they look & smell great!! I am believing 2 things are key for these to be at their best, 1: the oven temp has to be high to get the nice brownness 2: they have to be on the lowest rack possible (just as recipe advises)....I followed the recipe but did sprinkle a lil oregano & garlic powder over them to suit our tastes. I also had 1/2 an onion leftover from my meat loaf and at the advice of others I sliced it a lil thick and just tossed it over the potatoes in the last few mins of cooking, I turned them once, so the other cut side could get a nice golden brown. What a simple easy and do-able recipe! THANKS!

White Chocolate Cheesecake with White Chocolate Brandy Sauce

Reviewed: May 8, 2009
Yummy!!! I have never heard of a crustless cheesecake so I put a graham cracker crust down, I wish I would have used Oreos like someone suggested because this with crushed oreos is GREAT! Doubled the chocolate like advised and skipped the sauce, very easy and tasty THANKS!
