Cucumber Sandwiches III

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
Loved these, and so did everyone at the party...I made about 60 and they were gone in a snap. I wanted them to really be "sandwiches," so I topped them with another piece of bread spread with a bit of the cream cheese mixture. Just used regular white bread and made them small. So good!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I made this for some guests this weekend and it was gone in a snap. I added a half can of diced tomatoes (drained), half of an orange bell pepper, fresh basil, and nutmeg. So easy to make. I will be making this one a lot.

Spinach Balls

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Made these for Christmas eve and they were great...fastest thing to go by far. I made them exactly as the recipe calls for, and served them with hot marinara sauce, which I think was a good touch.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
Wow! I made quinoa last year and didn't really like it, but I had half the box left so decided to try this recipe. It is amazing. I added fresh basil, and lots of diced veggies (tomatoes, mushrooms, onions, garlic, bell pepper, and zucchini). It was a huge hit, and I'll be buying quinoa again and again just to make this recipe.

Cheese Garlic Biscuits II

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Outstanding! I cut the recipe in half (for just me and my hubby) and used twice the amount of baking powder in place of baking soda. I added a bit of garlic powder and parsley to the batter and skipped the last step of adding the garlic butter. I also made the batter ahead of time and kept it in the fridge for a few hours. Rose no problem and were done in 13 minutes. Delicious.

Lentil Barley Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Great soup! I used homemade veggie broth and skipped the veggie soup mix, used vegetable oil in place of margarine, and added a few spices: 1 Tbsp. thyme, 1 Tbsp. cumin, 1 tsp. parsley, and 1 tsp. paprika. I added a chopped zucchini at the same time as the carrots because I had one to use up. I also used crushed herbed tomatoes in place of diced. Came out very thick but I was happy with the consitency and flavor.

Romanian Apple Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
Awesome! Used 3 tsp. baking powder in place of baking soda, and only about 1 1/4 cups sugar. Besides that followed the recipe to a T. Served warm with whipped cream, came out great!

Creamy Italian Dressing I

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
Excellent! At first I though it tasted too much like mayo and almost added more vinegar, but I'm glad I didn't because after it sat for an hour in the fridge it was perfect. I am sure I will make this one regularly.

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Just amazing. What a great vegetarian meal. You can also make it vegan by usin vegannaise. I think it is essential to puree the chickpeas, and I added celery and subbed yellow onion for green onions becase it is what I had on hand. Have been eating it all week and still love it!

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2011
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I have been complaining for a while now that I would like to make my own homemade hummus but tahini is just too expensive and I could only find large cartons of it. This worked great! Added a bit of lemon juice and a little extra garlic. Next time I will add roasted red peppers for flavored hummus (and next time will be very soon!).

Quick and Easy Home Fries

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
Made these with breakfast this morning. Very easy. As some others suggested, I pat the potatoes dry with paper towels before adding to the pan, and added some diced onion, Italian seasoning, and paprika. Took about 25 minutes (uncovered the whole time). Came out great!

Easy Asparagus

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
Simple and delicious, what more can you want out of a recipe? I didn't use the crackers, but will try it next time. But even without, I thought this was just a great way to have asparagus. Thanks for the recipe Beckerkorn!

Swiss Chard with Pinto Beans and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
Followed this almost exactly and couldn't have been happier. I omitted the butter, subbed safflower oil for vegetable oil, and used feta instead of goat cheese. Just used proportions of beans and cheese to match the amount of chard I had. Served with eggs and fruit for a nice brunch. Thanks!

Libby's® Famous Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2011
So easy and was a hit. I subbed about 8 oz. sweetened condensed milk for evaporated milk. Also baked the crust for a few minutes by itself before filling, based on tips from others. Used fresh ginger, and this was perfect.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
I am a horrible baker, but these came out absolutely amazing. It has been over a week since I made them and they are still soft and yummy. I used 1 1/2 cups brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar, chilled the dough for one hour, and baked at 325 for 10 to 12 minutes on wax paper. Wow!

French Spring Soup

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
Wow! My Italian husband who was disappointed that I wasn't making a minestrone just said this is one of the best soups I have ever made. I made a few slight changes: Added 2 cloves garlic, added fresh thyme, added a vegetable bouillon cube, added a few shakes of pepper, and used half and half in place of heavy cream. Outstanding recipe!

Basil Butter

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
Wow, this is such an amazing idea. I have added other herbs in addition to basil, but it is up to you whether to do so or not. I add it to baking veggies and the best is bringing a few dollops with you to add to dutch oven veggies while camping. THANK YOU!!

Ratatouille Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2012
An excellent idea to use up fresh veggies from our local farm. The only changes I made was to use a can of fire-roasted tomatoes to add a little flare, and I added a pinch of sugar to the veggies to cut the bitterness of the tomatoes and eggplant...next time I may also use more than 8 oz. ravioli to make it a bit more filling. Otherwise a great meal!

Ethiopian Cabbage Dish

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
My husband took one look at the name of this and was not thrilled...until he tried it and couldn't stop talking about how tasty it was. I added some minced garlic, and a little extra cumin and turmeric. Will definitely make it again. This is an easy recipe to cut in half as well.

Hearts of Palm Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
I have never seen a dip go so fast in a small crowd. People could not stop talking about how good this was. I did make some changes just based on what I had on hand - I used less green onions and didn't have mozzarella so used all parmesan and asiago cheese. I also used vegannaise because one of my friends is allergic to eggs. I served it with roasted red peppers in the center. Thanks for this one!!
