Creamy Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2015
SO easy! I made it almost exactly as written, except I left out the raisins because I prefer my rice pudding without them, and I decreased the sugar slightly because I prefer it a little less sweet. But the basic science is there--perfect! I sprinkled just a tad of cardamom, cinnamon, and nutmeg on top.

Hamburger Steak with Onions and Gravy

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2014
I loved this recipe! It's not fancy but it tastes so good. I made it almost exactly to the recipe, with two very minor changes. I didn't have any sherry, so I just left it out. Also, my meat was pretty lean so I didn't feel that there was enough fat left in the pan to make the gravy, so I added a tablespoon of butter before adding the flour so that there would be a good roux. If you are using fattier meat you may not need to do this. I wasn't serving potatoes or rice, but if I were, I'd double the gravy amount (pretty easy if you just add some butter). This is the kind of recipe where the leftovers need to be put away right away before I overeat!

Garbanzos with Fennel

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2014
This was my first time cooking fennel, which I got from my CSA, and I was unsure if I would like it. I used canned garbanzos, so I used just a quart of (homemade) veggie broth and there was plenty of liquid for a stew-like feel. I also sauteed the fennel and onions before putting them in the pot. The recipe didn't list pepper, but I used generous amounts of both salt and pepper, as I was using homemade broth and fresh tomatoes. Overall, I liked this OK, although it didn't wow me with deliciousness. I'm pondering sprinkling some parm. cheese to give it a little something extra. Oh, and I served it with brown rice.

Italian Hot Turkey Sausage and Black-Eyed Peas

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
This is a great recipe for something fast, healthy, tasty, and inexpensive. It was very tasty, though not AMAZING, if you know what I mean. I will certainly be making it again, though. I added some kale I had so as to have a green vegetable in the meal, and it went well. Be sure you have a big enough skillet! This recipe really does have 6 servings.

Italian Sausage with Farfalle and Broccoli Rabe

Reviewed: May 6, 2009
This was just O.K. I thought that there was too much pasta vs. other stuff. I also didn't really get that much of a sauce--I think if I make it again I will try using cream cheese instead of butter to make more of a creamy sauce. It did have a good flavor.

Artichoke and Chickpea Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
I didn't really care for this much. It wasn't that it was bland, exactly, but the flavors didn't mesh well together for me. I pretty much followed the recipe, with the exception that I used canned tomatoes instead of fresh (maybe that was the difference?) because that is what I happened to have. I dutifully ate it anyway, because I hate wasting food, but I didn't really enjoy it. Not terrible, but I don't think I will make it again.

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
This was excellent--I only left out a star because I changed it up and I don't like when people give five stars and it turns out they didn't actually make the recipe. Instead of potatoes, I used butternut squash, which broke down and made the sauce really thicken. I also used a can of diced tomatoes instead of the soup, and a can of light coconut milk instead of the cream. I also used two cans of chickpeas instead of one because of all the extra saucy ingredients. However, this was extremely easy and tasty and I will be making it for some vegetarian guests soon.
