Hearty Lentil Soup II

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2014
Winner winner, (not) chicken dinner. Ok, I cheated and put chicken sausage in and used chicken broth. Didn't have some things, had others. Used fresh tomatoes and tomato sauce, a bit heavy on the sauce and a bit lighter on the broth. I used less liquid so it was not so soup-like, which is what I wanted. I'm ready to dig in but had to share a rating after my initial tasting.

Roasted Loin of Pork with Pan Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2013
Used cumin instead of cayenne. I think next time, I'd just skip either. The pork was very moist and delicious.

Banana Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2013
Loved these! They are moist and delicious; plenty flavorful perhaps because of a couple tweaks. I'll make these again for company or to take to a brunch. Used 1/2 cup brown sugar (not packed), 1 generous tsp of cinnamon, 2 whole eggs, half whole wheat/half white flour. Didn't have quite enough banana so supplemented with adding 1/4 c applesauce. Added some granola mixed with cinnamon to top per another suggestion.

Gingered Carrot Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2013
I'll make it again. Next time I'll add sweet potatoes or apples to give it a little sweeter flavor and I'll puree it longer (I still had some little bits, would have liked it more smoothed out.) The carrots I used may have been a little old or something b/c the soup tasted kind of bitter. I added some orange juice and cinnamon and that helped. The comments about using the amount of broth mentioned in the directions as opposed to the amount in the ingredient list were helpful. I also used about half as much ginger and it still had plenty of ginger taste.

Cranberry and Cilantro Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2013
Cooked the quinoa in chicken stock for a richer flavor. Added a bit of lemon juice with the lime because I had it. Used frozen cilantro cubes because that's what I had. Everyone RAVED about it and asked me to bring it again to the next potluck. I'm glad I made a double recipe of it. Oh, also, I served it hot because I didn't have time for the quinoa to cool. Since I did that, I sauteed the veggies in a bit of olive oil. I put the veggies in with the quinoa and then the lime juice and curry. Toasted almonds on top just before serving.

Impossible Pumpkin Pie II

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2013
Kids and I made it together using pumpkin we grew. It was a lot of fun. Not as sweet as traditional pumpkin pie but that also made it kind of refreshing, especially topped with unsweetened real whipped cream.

Valentino's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
This is my go to pizza recipe. I use about 1/3 white and 2/3 white wheat flour. One time I goofed and put the yeast in the flour instead of dissolving it in the water. Just kept going and it all turned out fine.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2012
Turned out great. Loved how easy it was to put everything in one bowl. I took a tip to up the cocoa to 1 cup and it tastes great. Did mine in 9x13 pan for 35-40 min. and cupcakes for 15-20 min. Also made one with cocoa as called for, 1 cup of the flour was whole wheat, and substituted apple sauce for oil. This healthier version was also tasty; a little different but tasty nonetheless.

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
Quiche with crust can taste so heavy if the crust is real flaky and buttery. So I loved this without the crust. I used fresh spinach (about half a bag I think), couple cloves of garlic, diced bell pepper, shredded zucchini. Sauteed all of that with the onion. Then to the egg/cheese mix, I added pepperoni. It was great!

Pear and Almond French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2012
I use a lot more fruit on the bottom than it calls for. I've used peaches instead of pears and that was good too. Also added some nutmeg for additional flavor.

My four-year old asked for "more" three times and my two-year old ate all I gave her. That says it all.
