Croutons

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
This was very easy and tasty. My bread wasn't stale so I toasted it on the lowest setting of my toaster to help dry it out first. Thanks for saving my salad. :)

Best Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
After reading many reviews calling these plain, I upped the seasoning quite a bit. I cooked the pork and then wilted some coleslaw mix with the drained pork and seasonings for a couple of minutes. I wouldn't suggest adding liquid to the mix because it can make the wrappers turn to mush. Also, only wrap a few at a time or the wrappers get soft and soggy. These are so tasty and it's a lot of fun rolling them up. Thanks for the recipe, Angela!

Smucker's® Oatmeal Carmelitas

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2010
I left out the nuts because my kids don't care for them in desserts, but other than that, I followed the recipe. These are very quick and easy, and most importantly, delicious! Super decadent, gooey, yumminess. I tried them warm from the oven and later on, chilled. I prefer them warm. I do recommend putting the crumb topping in the freezer while the base cooks so that it's easier to crumble. This is a new favorite at our house.

Ranch Oyster Crackers

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
I halved the amount of ranch dressing, omitted the dill and lemon pepper and used olive oil instead of vegetable oil. I'm very happy that I used olive oil instead- it added a really yummy olive taste. Thanks for the recipe Jackie- I'm sure I'll make this again.

Shrimp Scampi V

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
This was phenomenal. I used half butter, half olive oil. I also added a little chicken stock and some fresh basil. I will make this again and again.

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
A lot of people have complained about this pie having too much liquid- I didn't have that problem at all. I use 2.5 cups rhubarb and 3.5 cups of strawberries. I toss them with the flour and sugar and let them sit for half an hour while I'm thawing my pie crusts. Then I make a foil tent in my oven so the crusts don't burn. I don't add any butter. I bake it at 425 for 15 minutes, then 375 for 40 minutes. After the timer has gone off for the second time, I remove the foil tent and continue baking until the pie is exactly the shade of golden that I'm after. This usually takes only five minutes more. This method might be a little fussy, but it results in a perfect pie.

Simple Oven Fries

Reviewed: May 15, 2010
These were very good. I cut the potatoes into little bite-sized pieces. I then added garlic and onion powder, seasoning salt instead of regular and about a teaspoon and a half of Cajun seasoning. Also, I didn't bother to flip them. I cooked them until they were just about done and then I turned on the broiler for a few minutes. They were crisp, a little bit spicy and full of flavor. My oldest son is really picky about potatoes and he ate three helpings of these!

Poor Man's Caviar

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
This stuff rocks my socks off. If you haven't made it- you need to. Everyone will love you. It is a little plain as written, but I always add lots of fresh cilantro and lime. Also garlic, some chiles if you're feeling wild, and of course salt and pepper. I always add a little balsamic vinegar to it as well. So yes, I modify the heck out of it, but I'm giving it 5 stars anyway because it's that darn good. I made an enormous tub of this last summer for a family gathering and it was completely gone within ten minutes. This is the crack cocaine of dips.

Heavenly Halibut

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
The first time I made this, I didn't care for it, but that's because I used the parmesan in a can. Every time since, I've loved it using freshly grated parmesan and also cutting down on the mayo. This is a really fantastic recipe that we've been making at least once a week for some time now. Thanks for the recipe, chellebelle- this is a winner- my whole family adores it!

Bran Flax Muffins

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
I wouldn't say I went into this with a bad attitude, but definitely a defiant one. I thought there was no way these could be as good, and as adaptable, as everyone said. So I went a little crazy. Instead of all-purpose flour, I used half spelt flour and half whole wheat flour. I used 1 3/4 c. applesauce instead of chopped apples. I used craisins instead of raisins. I lowered the quantity of nuts and upped the quantity of carrots. And they turned out perfectly. These are so exceptional! You'd never guess they're healthy- even my kids, who can be picky little pains in the tush about grains, ate the heck out of 'em. I did make an icing using mascarpone, powdered sugar and milk in case anyone found them lacking in sweetness, but they're terrific plain as well. One last thing- these are super moist. Now go make some!

Roasted Duck

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
The cooking time was right on the money, and I was very happy to find a seasoning idea that didn't include fruit or a fruit glaze. The only thing I did differently was to omit the butter because duck is notoriously greasy. I removed the duck and the juices from the roaster, deglazed with white wine and then made a delicious gravy to serve over roasted potatoes.

Slow Cooker Beef and Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 4, 2010
This was very good- my family loved it. Because I used extra meat and because I love the flavor from the wine, I used a good cup or so of it. I don't think I'd consider the wine optional in this recipe since it's what makes it special. Also, another reviewer mentioned that they subbed cream of mushroom for the golden mushroom soup. That might do in a pinch, but they are very different things- I think the golden mushroom is more like a gravy. Thanks for this recipe Amber- it was very, very good.

No Bake Cookies IV

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
My kids really enjoyed these- even my oldest who doesn't typically care for coconut. I used the jarred marshmallow fluff because it's what I had. If I were to make these again I think I'd cut back on the PB a little.

Coconut Pancake Syrup

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
This was easy to make, and it's a decent syrup, but I won't be making it again once we're out. I don't care for the coconut shreds (I guess I just prefer a smoother consistency for syrup). My other complaint is that it has a surprisingly mellow coconut flavor. I was looking for BAM! COCONUT! and what I got was more like, "Huh, what's the white stuff- is that coconut?" The flavor is very subtle. It's a fine syrup, it just didn't knock my socks off like I was hoping for.

Homemade Butter

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2010
This was so much fun to make. I used my KitchenAid mixer and it was very easy. Once it hits the whipped cream stage, keep going- you're almost there. I used a lot of cream so I could make several different compound butters. I made salted and unsalted butter, cinnamon honey butter, and a garlic and herb butter. All are delicious! I squeezed the butter using cheesecloth. The leftover buttermilk is in the fridge right now- tomorrow I'll use it to make homemade waffles with cinnamon-butter and homemade coconut syrup. YUM!

Fresh Fruit and Yogurt Ice Pops

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
I made these using frozen strawberries, pineapple and mango. I froze them in some Jello-O egg-shaped molds for Easter. My boys loved them! Actually, so did their dad and I. Thanks for the recipe, april- we'll definitely be making these again!

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2010
I skipped the American cheese and potato chips. I did top it off with pecorino cheese and I used a little bread crumbs. Also, I added a bag of frozen peas. Not health food, but it was a good way to use up some pantry items and very quick to make.

Black Bean and Chickpea Hummus

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2010
This is a tough one to rate because it's not hummus. There's no hummus without tahini, so if I were to rate it as a hummus, I'd give it two stars. HOWEVER, as a bean dip to go with nachos or chips and salsa, it's spectacular. After I realized it wasn't made to be eaten with naan or pita, I opted for some good 'ol tortilla chips with a little salsa on the side. It's very good for that purpose.

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2010
I'm no fan of burritos, and even I liked these- the black beans sealed the deal. I made some modifications- I used olive oil and fire-roasted red pepper from a jar. I didn't use japs, but I did add a can of rotel. I also added some cumin and chili powder. This was seriously tasty. Everyone in my family loved them.
