Peanut Butter Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Great recipe! Perfect for a peanut butter lover. I would recommend using chunky peanut butter in the glaze and putting that on while the cake is still warm to enable easier spreading.

Oatmeal Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
Great, tastes just like an oatmeal cookie and thankfully without raisins! My only problem was that they ended up more like cookies, and less like flat whoopie pies.

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
My only problem was these ended up more like cookies and less flat like whoopie pies--hard to fill! Great flavors though.

Ian's Potato-Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
Easy and fast--a half hour soup that's filling, tasty and satisfying. I recommend seasoning to taste after, instead of adding the tablespoon of salt in right off the bat. My edits: I had smallish Idaho potatoes so I used 3, and then used 3 cups of water so they were covered. I also added a can of creamed corn and used cream of mushroom soup instead since the store didn't have cream of celery.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2012
Very salty--I would cut down on the salt but otherwise delicious and easy. 30 minutes was too long for mine so be sure to check and toss to prevent burning.

Couscous, Cranberry, and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
I tossed the cranberries with the feta/cucumber because I wanted to keep them chewy, and I added some sliced almonds for more texture. Good side salad or I ate the whole serving for dinner.

Potato, Broccoli and Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2011
I used chicken stock (only 4 cups) instead of the boullion/water combo, and added the broccoli to the pot with 5 minutes left to simmer to just save dishes. Everything worked out well. I also pureed the entire pot since my potato cubes and broccoli were rather large. Ends up very thick and delicious, and I used only about half the cheese!

Pumpkin Bread IV

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
Excellent. Great spices. Nice and moist. Perfectly pumpkin-y. I even followed one of the comment versions and substituted applesauce for oil. My only issue is that now the muffins stick to the paper wrappers--so maybe get foil ones or just grease muffin cups!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
With most of these recipes I find I can cut the sugar in half and they still taste great. I did just that for the cookie batter, and then cut the glaze in half and did only a drizzle. I also used half whole wheat flour. Still delicious, and less guilt-inducing! =)

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
Great taste--the spices are spot on. I thought I used a small pumpkin, but I ended up getting 2 cups from only half of it!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
Great flavors. My only problem with this recipe is that the salmon came out a bit soggy. I will experiment with this more (maybe cut the filets into portions and then bake so more sides are exposed and the sauce doesn't pool in the middle). Other than that this is a very easy and delicious recipe. I had leftover butter/breadcrumb mixture that I used for a chicken breast the next night--worked well for chicken too!

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
The marinade is delicious--salty and crisp. Paired with the semi-sweet mango salsa that has a vibrant tang you this dish is amazing! Even my boyfriend who doesn't like fish wants me to cook this for him. Be sure you get a ripe mango; but if, like me, it isn't quite there, add a little sugar to help it along.

Tamra's Lemon Artichoke Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
I misread the directions and added the artichoke to the food processor so I ended up with a yummy hummus-like paste. I'll add a cup of the starchy pasta water to make more of a sauce. I agree with the other comments that this is VERY garlicky, and I only used 5 cloves. Otherwise nice flavors!

Ramen Coleslaw

Broccoli Chicken Divan

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
Very basic recipe. I felt that it needed some more seasonings--especially the chicken. I will make again but I will probably spice it up a bit.

Zucchini Risotto

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
Loved loved loved the flavors in this risotto! Do soak the sundried tomatoes in hot water for 20 minutes to soften as suggested--they'll release much better flavor into the risotto. I also used the whole zucchini--much better veggie to starch ratio. Also, before adding in the stock slowly I added 1 cup of sauvignon blanc because I'm a vino.

Slow-Cooked Short Ribs

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
My only issue was that the sauce ended up being very watery. I would have liked something thicker I could have poured over the meat. Other than that, the flavors were great. I ended up not having or knowing what chili sauce was, so I used 1/2 cup of Frank's read hot and omitting the chile powder.

Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
Great bread. The baking time was spot on for me because it produced a slightly crisp crust on the bread, but some others might want to check on the loaf 5 or 10 minutes early to avoid that!

Smoky Chipotle Hummus

Reviewed: May 19, 2011
Very spicy! A nice, lingering burn on your tastebuds! Some might feel like it's too spicy but I love it like this.
