Sriracha Pickled Eggs

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2015
I'm generally not a fan of pickled eggs but these may have made me a convert. I used them in place of plain boiled eggs in a Chef Salad and they added just enough flavor to be interesting. I like the idea of egg salad too.

New Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2015
Classic potato salad in our family with 2 small changes. I omit the milk and add 2 tbs Dijon mustard. To get the full flavor I suggest making this the day before and letting the flavors ripen overnight.

Polish Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Reviewed: May 15, 2015
I made this for a ladies luncheon and it was a huge success! I used lite sour cream and 1/2 low fat cream cheese and 1/2 part skim ricotta in an effort to lower the guilt factor. I was working against time so I put all the cake in the pan and spread it with wet hands then added the cheese and the topping. I did add a tsp of vanilla to the cheese mixture. I can see so many variations this will surely be made again. I suggest serving this either slightly warmed or a room temperature to get the full benefit of the subtle flavors. Thanks SAXYBONE, this is a keeper!

Mexican Brownies

Reviewed: May 9, 2015
I made these for a Thank you gift and they were a huge success. I didn't have the pequin powder so I used Pasilla powder. The smokiness worked beautifully with the Mexican cinnamon to showcase the chocolate. I do think they may be the best brownies I have ever made. The texture was perfect, the taste was perfect and they cut so nicely. Thank you, caroliney.

Mamacita's Mexican Rice

Reviewed: May 5, 2015
This was incredibly flavorful! The carrots add just a hint of sweetness that sets this recipe apart. I can see this becoming a staple in my home. I did have the saffron and followed the recipe as written except to leave the peas out since the children I was cooking for do not like them. They loved this rice though and both had second helpings. Thank you, Armi and thank Mamacita!

Creamy Pasta with Zucchini

Reviewed: May 4, 2015
I added sliced mushrooms, red, orange and yellow pepper and sweet onion. The sauce was interesting, not my concept of an Alfredo sauce, but ok. There could have been more of it. I did omit the cheddar cheese, it just seemed out of place to me. All in all this made a good main dish for a meatless meal. Thanks for sharing.

Joy's Easy Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 4, 2015
This is very similar to the banana bread my mother made - simple, moist, and tasty with the banana the star. The only thing I would change might be using baking powder instead is baking soda to try to get a bit more rise. I will be making this again and again especially since Marianne suggested toasting it! Thank you, Joy

Grandma's Lemon Cauliflower Side Dish

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2015
We enjoyed cauliflower prepared this way. The chopped egg reminds me of how vegetables are served in Scandinavian countries. It took far more than 10 minutes for my cauliflower to get tender, closer to 20 but the rest of the recipe worked perfectly. Thanks for sharing!

Spinach, Sausage, and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2015
This is a good start but as written it lacks flavor. I believe it needs a full tsp of oregano, some garlic, S&P and some minced onions to reach its full potential. Thanks, Lauren

Roasted Sweets

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2015

Apple-Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2015
This reminds me of a dish from my favorite German restaurant, but possibly better. The spice blend is perfect. I was unsure about the allspice but it works. Thanks, Patty

Brussels Sprouts and Apricot Saute

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2015
Since I was cooking for more than 1 child I decided to bake this. I scaled the recipe for 6 but only used 2 tbs of maple syrup and I baked it at 400F for 20 minutes. I think it could have used more apricots for the scaled version. I also think in the future I would shred the sprouts in the food processor. All in all, this is a good idea with a tasty result. Thanks, Shahana

Patty's Mashed Turnips

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2015
Turnips retain a good amount of the water they boil in so I suggest mashing without adding anything, draining the released water and then adding the butter, just a bit of milk, S&P, and I like to also add a pinch of nutmeg.

Skillet Chicken Bulgogi

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2015
I've made this twice now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and I kept thinking something was missing. The second time I added about a tbs of minced ginger. Is it authenttic? Who cares - it's delicious and fairly quick to make a nutritious diner. Thanks, Daveparks4!

Best Date Squares Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2015
The sugar could be reduced here. I made half the recipe in a 8x8 pan, yielding 16 squares. I think there is too much butter and not enough oats but it is a good starting point. Thanks, Suzanne.

Roasted Chicken Rub

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2015
We eat a great deal of chicken so I'm always looking for new ways to serve it. This rub is a very welcome addition to my repertoire. Couldn't find celery flakes, so I too used ground celery seed and I had no cayenne so I used passilla powder, which added an earthy note. I will continue to search out celery flakes (or make my own) and then make a jarful to keep on hand. Thanks, Semigourmet!

Lamb L'Arabique

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2015
Tomato and lamb seemed like an off combo to me but the recipe had so many positive ratings I decided to give it a go. Great decision! I made a few very minor changes to use what I had on hand. I used canned tomatoes with jalapeños in place of the Roma's and hot sauce and left out the lentils. I also did the whole thing in my cast iron Dutch Oven, stovetop and oven. My house smelled heavenly as it cooked and the taste was just as good, I served it with couscous. Thanks, Heather!

Tahini Spinach

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2015
I made 2 small changes. I used fresh spinach instead of frozen which I sautéed in about 1 tbs EVO. The other was I started with 1/8 cup of red wine vinegar and added to taste. I probably used about 1/4 cup total. We enjoyed this it was a nice change of pace and I will make it again. Thank you!

Rice Elena

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2015
Recipe Group selection 3/7/15. I made half a recipe for DD and me and I built our meatless Monday dinner around it. The only change I made was to use a Mexican cheese blend rather than the Montery Jack and Cheddar. It was rich, creamy, and very satisfying. The green chilis were perfect. Thank you Bryantgal31, this recipe is a keeper!

Bacon Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2015
If I could find more recipes like this I could become a vegetarian! I made my own mushroom soup, which was really good on its own so I have to think it is better than canned. The flavors worked perfectly together. I chose to omit the French fried onions and instead mixed the bacon with breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan, then topped the whole thing with more Parmesan half way through baking. I thought about leaving out the red pepper flakes but I am so glad I didn't. There isn't enough to make the dish hot, just enough to make your taste buds pay attention. Thanks, 2bMary!
