Cinnamon-Peach Cottage Cheese Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
Easy to make, versatile, and delicious! Thank you. I can see the opportunity to easily change up the fruit for these wonderful pancakes. My husband loves pancakes, so I am always looking for different ways to make them and this recipe fit the bill. I used canned peaches as that is what I had on-hand and they were still great. Half of the can went in the pancakes and I used the other half for the topping - peaches, sour cream, and a bit of Trader Joe's pumpkin butter - a terrific accompaniment. We will be making these again.

Kielbasa and Cabbage

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
Awesome recipe! Very versatile. I used turkey kielbasa, sauer kraut, and yams - because it is what i had on-hand. The yams soaked up the yumminess of the sauer kraut juice and it was just amazing! The flavors came together really well. It was very easy to make and very flavorful. The red pepper flakes added just the right touch of heat. I will be making this again and again! Thank you!

Skillet Strawberry Pancake

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
Amazingly versatile recipe! Thank you for all of the ideas and variations. This has become one of our favorite breakfasts. My pancakes never turn out quite right, but this is nearly foolproof and comes out hot in one dish (as opposed to one pancake at a time). We typically use 2 eggs, but I also like it with 3. I also use whole wheat flour and skim milk with a little greek yogurt or sometimes almond milk. Again, very versatile. We really like strawberries or cherries with cocoa powder and/or chocolate chips. I use a regular oven proof skillet without the butter and the pancake just slips right out onto the plate, ready to serve. We typically eat it with yogurt. Wonderful and tasty recipe!

Blue Cornmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2012
Simple, quick, and easy! I should also mention that they are tasty. This recipe made two waffles. I used honey instead of sugar and added pecans. The honey was good, but I would skip the pecans next time. I was a little iffy about the consistency of the batter, but it worked well for waffles without additional milk. I did use oil instead of butter and whole wheat flour. The husband - who usually drenches pancakes in syrup - was very pleased with the flavor and we sued jams, raspberry coulis, and greek gods yogurt. I will definitely be making this again....thanks!

Black Bean Huevos Rancheros

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
Great recipe. Cooked our eggs sunny side up and the runny yolk added just the right flavor and moisture to the dish. IMO the fresh cilantro adds just the right touch. A simple keeper. Thank you!

Spicy Eggplant

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2011
This was my first shot at using eggplant as a main dish other than an eggplant parmesan. This dish was easy, wonderfully flavorful, and filling. My husband says this is a keeper. The only 'changes' I made was using fish sauce instead of oyster sauce and a medium-sized Italian eggplant based on what we had on-hand. This will become a go-to after work dinner or weekend lunch. Thank you!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
A simple and great tasting way to make brussel sprouts. My husband and I have come to enjoy these a lot - I've now made them several times. I typically use some garlic salt and/or an asian season blend that includes salt, pepper, garlic, etc in addition to salt/pepper. Very simple and always well liked. Lots of different variations that you can try as far as seasonings. Throw them in the oven and forget them. It's all good!

Jimmy's Mexican Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
Very simple, quick, and tasty recipe! I did do it a bit different. I came to allrecipes to figure out how I wanted to heat my previously frozen black bean burgers (recipes from here also) and the Mexican Pizza was a featured recipe and the lightbulb went off! Basically, I subbed the black bean burgers for the ground beef, spices and refried beans. I did make two layers with 3 tortillas, and the end result was a very filling lunch that my husband and I split and really enjoyed! Finished it off with a quick broil and parsley (no green onion on-hand). Awesome - thanks!

Slow Cooked Corned Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
This is an easy and great way to make corned beef. We used a 2.8 lb flat cut brisket. I rubbed the meat with the spice packet, some brown sugar, the peppercorns, and garlic. The beer and bay leaves added a nice flavor as well. Poured in the beer and lots of water to cover. Let it simmer for about 5-5.5 hours. Added some carrots, cabbage, and potatoes with about an hour left. Meat was tender and tasty.

Peanut Butter Bars I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2011
Excellent recipe! I tend to not have all of the specified ingredients (no graham crackers/some butter) on hand, so I work with what I have. I find that almost any crushed up cookie (leftover trefoils, Anna's ginger thins, etc) work very well! I've used as little as approx. 3 oz (3/4 stick) of butter and it still turns out tasting amazing. Sometimes a little crumbly, but it works! You will not be disappointed. Oh yeah - and it is very quick and easy.

Southwestern Hot Dogs

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2010
Good stuff! We love hot dogs and I was looking for a new way to prepare them when we ran across this recipe. It was easy, tasty, and different. Will likely add some hot sauce and jalapeƱos next go around. Thank you!

Chipotle Crusted Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
Wonderful taste! We decided to make this spur of the moment, so we subbed 2 Tbs chili powder, .5 Tb cayenne pepper, and .5 Tb paprika for the chipotle powder. We did not find this overly spicy at all - the flavors worked well together. Very simple to prep and the meat came out juicy and full of flavor. We used 1.6lb pork loin boneless rib roast.

Garlic-Herb Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
Tasty! Cut down on the butter and used 1% milk (on-hand) and they were creamy and had a lot of flavor. No tarragon, so we used another dried herb we had on-hand. My potatoes always seem to come out pasty, but my husband said 'if they taste like this, they can be pasty'! :) I figure it's b/c I use a hand mixer? In any case - we found there to a nice balance of the garlic, herbs, and creamy flavors. Thank you!

Breakfast Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
WONDERFUL! These were surprisingly filling and stuck with us for several hours and through yard work! (2.5 cookies each) Made ours with wheat flour, less sugar (part brown and part white), raisin bran, some dried cherries, and half the bacon...most changes were due to what was on-hand. Agree with other reviewers to cut the baking time to 11-12 minutes. The dough seemed quite dry, so I added some V8 fusion - probably unnecessary. (I'm not much of a baker - even cookies - and am easily spooked!) Our batch made 11 cookies. I can easily see myself making these for road trips, flights, over-night company, etc. Thank you!

Peaches and Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
Extremely quick - used fresh peaches and didn't peel them - light, simple and tasty sweet treat! As other reviewers suggested - I simply stirred the brown sugar into the sour cream. We did't have any nuts on hand, but it was still lovely. I will certainly be trying this with other fruit and likely using the sour cream/brown sugar combo on other items! Terrific, thank you.

Crab Legs with Garlic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2010
First time making crab legs - simple and tasty! I was nervous there wasn't enough liquid, so I added a touch of water. I'm not sure it was necessary. Turned out great!

Barbequed Ribs

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
This recipe rocks. Everyone loves the ribs - and using this recipe was the first time I had ever made ribs. I have made them several times without disappointment! I bake them at a lower temp for less time - that's the only change I've made. Highly recommended!
