Caramelized Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
Wonderful sauce, but it was a little to thin. I had to boil it with cornstarch after the chicken cooked to thicken it up. Served over rice.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
Very tasty! My fiance went back for seconds and thirds! It probably didn't need as much butter though. I did cheat a little and replaced half the mozzarella with feta, which gives it a nice kick. Very good side dish.

Italian Kale

Reviewed: May 28, 2010
Did not care for this. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't something I would make again.

Garlic Sauteed Artichokes

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
I really want to give this more stars, but 1/4 cup of water is too little! My artichokes started to burn in the pan and I had to rush to add more. Otherwise, they turned out well.

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
I really can't say that I liked this because I don't like beer. But this was such an easy recipe that I had to try it. It came out great! Moist in the middle with a nice crust and was extremely quick to make.

Banana Oatmeal Cookie

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2010
Very good! I cut way back on the sugar because the bananas are sweet enough. "Cookie" is a little decieving because they are more cake-like. As someone mentioned earlier, they're like muffin tops.

Slow Cooker Lentil and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
Tasty, but way too thin for me. I felt like it could use more than just a cup of lentils.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
This was pretty good for something different. My fiance's first reaction was that it was too "chocolately", but we both devoured it. The cocoa powder does a good job at masking the whole wheat flavor. **I made this again to get rid of some turning bananas. I chose this recipe because it doesn't use butter. I left out the cocoa powder and used white flour and it made a wonderfully moist bread. This is a keeper!

Spicy Black Bean Cakes

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2010
Very good! I used dry bean instead of canned and boiled the sweet potato before mashing it. Instead of the topping (don't like sour cream), I used some mashed avocado and put it in a half a pita. It was a very satisfying meal.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
Very good as a dessert! I made these as a whim because the picture looked so good. At the last minute I decided to bake them on a sheet cookie-style instead of a muffin tin because the batter was so thick. The result was 2 dozen muffin-like chocolaty cookies.

Garlic Teriyaki Edamame

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2010
This is a great why to enjoy Edamame. I've been using it for a while and I'll sub just (low salt) soy sauce for the teriyaki sauce and add some cornstarch to thicken.

Added chocolate chips and they were yum! Not the best I've had though.

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2010
This was good ... however, I tried it before I added the vanilla extract and thought it was great. After adding the vanilla and chilling, I felt like the vanilla was overpowering. If I make it again I think I'll leave out the vanilla or severely reduce it. Otherwise, it was an insanely easy dessert to make!

Michelle's Blonde Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2010
This was wonderful! The only thing I had to change was I was out of chicken broth and had to just use water. This will definitely be a keeper and I'll make sure to have chicken broth on hand when I make it again.

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
Oh, this was good! I added some red pepper flakes and pre-cooked chicken. The next day, I added a small amount of peanut butter to my leftovers, which made it taste wonderful!
