Marshmallow Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
So good that my teeth hurt just looking at it! Really easy, just takes some constant attention. I dalloped it on top of chocolate fudge cake cupcakes because I didn't want more chocolate and it was AMAZING! Almost smore-like...mmmm

Deep-Dish Blackberry Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
I want to eat the WHOLE thing myself! I was lazy and used a ready made crust on top which probably didn't let enough juice escape and made mine runnier than a lattice would be, but I was lazy and short on time. Still an excellent, easy filling!

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze

Reviewed: May 26, 2010
Since I'm vegetarian, I opted for these over brown rice instead of steak. EXCELLENT! I liked the simple, yummy sauce so well that I sauteed some asparagus the same way and it also rocked!

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2010
So glad to have a recipe to make at home! I made my pie at night and didn't eat it until morning (literally, for breakfast!) and it wasn't at all runny. I had mixed the filling and let it sit for 30 min before assembling my pie. However, in my haste to add the top and cook it, I completely forgot to dot inside with butter. Don't know how much flavor that adds, but it was really good without (and much lower in calories I'm sure!) Used a full crust top with big vent holes, glazed with milk, sprinkled with sugar and nutmeg, covered the edges for 15 @ 425, then uncovered for 45 @ 375 and let sit in the oven once it was off for another 15 as suggested by others. Very happy with this pie!

Spicy Black Bean Potato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
I normally don't like potato salad and I just realized why---everyone always slathers it in mayo! I used way less mayo than called for, just enough to cover the potatoes and really like this recipe. The only other tweaks were for vegetarian reasons--no eggs and bacon salt instead of bacon. I think the black beans and cajun seasoning are definite musts for me to eat potato salad in the future!

Greek Potato Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2010
LOVE this! Only thing I changed was to use a can of diced tomatoes, juice and all, hoping for more to dip bread in. Even with the extra liquid, there really wasn't that much to sop up. But what was there was yummy!!! Definitely need kalamata olives and not just whatever you normally have on hand. This is my new favorite way to make potatoes, and I plan to make it again and again!

Chicken Florentine Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2009
I took great liberties with this recipe because of the ingredients I had on hand and because my kids kept interrupting the process. I put thawed, drained frozen spinach in the bottom of the dish, layered vegetarian chicken that I had browned, and covered with sliced mushrooms. For the sauce, I eyeballed all of the amounts. I threw some butter, garlic, and a few squirts of lemon juice in a pan, added cream of celery soup and a little soymilk to thin it out and shook some italian seasoning on top. I poured that over the whole dish and topped with strips of browned smart bacon. I covered it all with an italian cheese blend and baked at 400 for 20 min. This tasted fabulous, and my husband devoured it. Just wanted to point out how forgiving the recipe was to all kinds of modifications!

Cheesecake Chewies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
I'm rating these 4 stars because of the way the recipe is written. I've been making these with the same ingredients in different amounts for years with excellent results. The bottom layer should only have 1 egg and end with a very thick consistency. You should not be able to pour it. It has to be spread into the pan. The top layer should have no butter in it, which is probably contributing to the burning. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, then start checking it. Depending on your oven, it will only take 25-30 minutes and will not look "done" when you take it out. These set up considerably after sitting! If you let them bake until they appear done, then you've probably already ruined them.

Hearts of Palm and Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
This salad is very good for something a little different. I agree that the dressing is too sweet, so you may want to half the sugar then add more if necessary. I also increased the oil and vinegar slightly to make it a little thinner. I used regular tomatoes and sunflower seeds because I didn't have almonds. Very tasty though!

Seattle Cream Cheese Dogs

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
I was looking for a way to cover the unusual taste of veggie dogs, and this is certainly a winner! I never would have dreamed of putting cream cheese on a hot dog, let alone topping it with sauerkraut. But I have to say this is my absolute new favorite way to eat them! (I did leave off the onions because I'm not a fan.) Thanks for sharing!

Grilled Peanut Butter Apple Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2009
As much as I love apples and peanut butter, I was expecting this to be better. I don't think it was bad but also not good enough to probably ever bother with again. Grilled peanut butter and jelly is better in my book!

Egg and Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2009
I followed the other suggestions which I'm sure improved the recipe, but I also think it could be better with some more experimenting. I did give the crescents a 5-7 min head start, added milk to the eggs, used italian seasoning instead of oregano, reduced cheese to 2 c, and baked at 350 for 25 then 325 for another 20 (which was too long and made both the crescents and the eggs overdone, but that may just be my oven). Next time, I will also up the eggs to 10-12 and try different seasonings. I wasn't a huge fan of the italian, but onion powder and garlic or something totally different might be good. I'll also try to add some veggies (mushrooms, peppers, or possibly even asparagus) which are noticeably lacking in this recipe! And I'll reduce the cooking time again or at least keep a very watchful eye on it.

Tacos in Pasta Shells

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2009
I'm giving this 4 stars based on the concept. I changed some things to add flavor because I knew it would be too bland for us as is. I used 4 oz cream cheese and added 1 tsp each of oregano, cumin and cayenne to the chili powder. I also replaced the taco sauce with salsa, slightly covering the bottom of the pan as well to prevent drying and sticking. I omitted the crumbled chips. Next time I will also add refried beans and olives. It was really good with the kicked up flavor!

Raspberry Chocolate Smoothie

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2009
This is really good, but I agree that it's a little sour as written. To adjust it, I simply used the other banana half with another scoop of chocolate and a splash more chocolate soy milk as needed. Next time I'm going to try it with strawberries instead of raspberries. I think that will make it 5 stars!

Pasta with Peas and Sausage

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
Very yummy change from normal "pasta sauce" dishes. Hubby and kids ate it which is always a good sign. I didn't have a problem with my sauce being too thin and I followed the recipe as is (except for reducing it to about 3/4 so we wouldn't have a ton leftover!)

Make Ahead Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
This really is the best casserole. It took WAY longer to set up than expected though, and I even reduced the amount of milk to 2 c. I also used fresh mushrooms sauteed in olive oil with minced onion and garlic salt and then wilted some fresh spinach instead of frozen. Added extra mustard as well. I used soy sausage and soy milk, and my family loved it. Just needs a LOT of extra baking time! Also, I may not make it ahead next time to keep the croutons crunchier...

Hot Corn Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2009
This was a hit at the party--everyone devoured it! I changed the diced tomatoes to salsa and topped it with shredded cheese, baking an additional 10 min to melt. It was really wonderful!

Strawberry Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
This is surprisingly delicious! I wouldn't have thought to put this together but will be making it often. I did omit both the sugar (based on other suggestions) and pecans (based on personal preference). The dressing was plenty sweet and fabulous!

Gazpacho a la Mrs. Landesman

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
This was alright but I don't personally think it deserves 5 (or even 4) stars. I'll definitely try other recipes on the site before making this one again.

Greek Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
This was really good but a few too many peppers for me. Maybe mine were just really big? Next time I'll cut back on the peppers, and I'm sure that will make it outstanding.
