Cow Pies

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
I use maple syrup instead of corn syrup, and after trying these with raisins and choc. chips, we decided we liked the raisin version better. We don't put in nuts. These are really easy to make, keep well, and are always popular with kids and adults.

Pancakes I

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
This recipe saved me from having my family ask me not to make pancakes. For some reason I always thought I didn't need a recipe for pancakes, but mine were always rubbery, uncooked on the inside, overcooked on the outside.......everyone is very relieved that I managed to use a recipe, and this one works great.

Golden Yam Brownies

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2010
Delicious. I used 1/2 cup butter, about 2/3 c. white sugar (could have gone with 1/2 c.) the full cup of brown sugar, 2 cups of flour, and a little over 2 cups of raw sweet potato finely chopped in food processor (looked like it had been grated). I baked in a ceramic 9 x 13 pan, for just about 1 hour. Didn't have time to make the glaze as we were running out the door, but we all loved them even without glaze.

Apple Chutney

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
I halved the recipe. I put 1 whole cardamom pod and about 10 white peppercorns in a tea ball and buried it under the apples. Used red wine vinegar, and Cortland apples which held their shape. This was delicious with our Thanksgiving meal, and wonderful with leftovers. Could be good as a dessert with some local ginger ice cream....will not be waiting until next Thanksgiving to make again!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
There are endless ways to vary this recipe. I like to put in parsnips and a few cloves of garlic. Definitely balsamic vinegar over other options!

Roast Chicken with Rosemary

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
The whole house smelled fantastic and this also tasted great. I roasted the chicken on a rack in a pan filled with onion, potato, carrots and garlic marinated according to AR roast vegetable recipe. The drippings from the chicken mixed in with the veggies. Great meal for company or just us, easy prep, easy cleanup.

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I follow the recipe's oven roasting directions and it always turns out delicious. But I am curious about one reviewer's stovetop technique and will try that next time.

Tasty Lentil Tacos

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
My kids are raging carnivores but when we have lentil tacos they become lentilvores! Despite 478 reviews, I was still skeptical, but the recipe won us over on the first try. I kept the salsa separate rather than mixing it in. And I used water instead of broth and just upped the onion, garlic and spices a little. The recipe does not call for salt or pepper but I added some to taste once the lentils were cooked.

Irish Soda Bread in a Skillet

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2014
I have used another Irish soda bread recipe for years, which contains butter. I tried this one for the first time yesterday and loved it--it's better than the one with butter. I used white whole wheat flour and added 1Tbsp caraway seeds and 1 cup of raisins. Easy to make, easy to clean up, great texture and very sliceable.

Slow Cooker Adobo Chicken with Bok Choy

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
I tried this for the first time tonight. Stuck to the recipe except that I cooked it on high for 4 hours instead of low for 8 hours. It turned out great--so easy to make, delicious with rice. The kids loved it.

Great-Grandmother Bubbie's Hamantaschen

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2011
Really good recipe. I used canola oil and white whole wheat flour--the dough was great. For the filling I made separate batches of apricot and prune, then put them in the blender with lemon juice and sugar, (no walnuts) so I had 2 different fillings, both good. I ended up with more than twice as much filling as I needed, so I guess I'll have to make more dough and eat more hamantaschen!

Asian Ginger Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
I subsituted sesame oil for about 1/3 of the olive oil, and used less water. Great on cabbage/broccoli slaw.

I can't seem to bring myself to follow recipes exactly, but for once I did. These are delicious and really easy.

Fresh Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
I used fresh peaches and left the skins on, just sliced them thinly. The skins gave the fruit a beautiful dark pink color that bubbled up from under the topping. Also threw in a pear. I tossed the fruit in 1 tbsp. lemon juice and about 1 tbsp. corn starch. For the topping I used only 1/2 c. sugar. I blobbed the topping on top of the fruit (like cobblestones), spread it a little to cover most of the fruit surface, and sprinkled cinnamon on top before putting in the oven. A little sugar with the cinnamon would have been nice, but it turned out delicious anyway, and was devoured at a potluck. Giving this a 4 because I made changes, but it's a great base recipe.

Roasted Kohlrabi

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
I used oil, salt and pepper and roasted at 375 since I was baking something else at the time. I ate some with horseradish and tossed the rest into my salad. Now I finally know what to do with the kohlrabi in my farm share! Yum.

Mimi's Smoked Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
I used this recipe for the basic idea and technique. Added diced carrots with the celery/onion/garlic, did not have chicken broth but added some dried fish powder, used canned salmon, skim milk instead of 1/2 and 1/2 and accidentally used a little too much hot sauce. It was delicious, warming and filling and I am enjoying the leftovers. I am sure it would be outstanding with smoked salmon and creamier with 1/2 and 1/2.

Easy Hamantaschen

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
No mixer needed for this recipe!!! I substituted white whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour, added flour gradually. First I used a whisk, then a rubber scraper, and finally just my hand to get the last bit of flour mixed in. I rolled out the dough between two sheets of waxed paper without chilling it, and used an inverted drinking glass to cut the dough into circles. One tsp. of preserves was plenty. Make sure to pinch the sides closed very well so they don't flop open. I baked on parchment paper, for about 15 minutes. Got about 50 hamantaschen. they turned out great. Now I would like an easy recipe for the poppy seed filling!

Raspberry White Chocolate Mousse

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2010
Lovely texture and mild taste that can be dressed up with toppings or paired with brownies if you are feeling really decadent. Simplified version: 8 oz. white chocolate, chopped 1 pint heavy cream 1 tbsp. vanilla Melt chocolate and about 1/4 c. cream in double boiler. Meanwhile whip cream until stiff (I do this by putting cream in a large container with a tight fitting lid and shaking....fun for the whole family). Remove melted chocolate from heat, let cool slightly,stir in vanilla. Let cool until lukewarm, fold into whipped cream until no streaks. Distribute into serving dishes or glasses and chill. Serve with whatever sauce/topping works for you.

One Bowl Brownies

Reviewed: May 19, 2010
Here's my variation: 7/8 c. cocoa powder, 3/4 c. canola oil, 2 c. sugar, 3 eggs, 2 tsp. vanilla, 1 c. rice flour. Combine everything but flour, sift in flour last. bake in 9 x 9 ceramic pan at 350 for 35 minutes. Turn off oven, let cool in oven. It makes a crunchy crust on top and brownies are fudgy. The first time I tried this version it was because I had run out of regular flour and butter, but now I have a wheat-free, dairy-free brownie for friends with food restrictions!

Peppermint Bark

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
Yummy. I used peppermint essential oil (maybe about 10 drops in each type of chocolate) and crushed candy canes (12). Easy. Addictive.
