Real Hummus

Reviewed: May 15, 2011
I added an extra T of tahini to make it more creamy. And some extra garlic too. I found this recipe to be more lemony than others I have tried but I thought it was delish!

Shrimp Scampi Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
I made this exactly as written except I added a dash of white wine because so many other reviews kept saying to. I cut the recipe in half for my son and I but I think I may be making this again tomorrow!!! Delicious and definitely going to be a regular in my house!

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
These are definitely the best chocolate chip cookies I have ever made and if not the best I have ever eaten, then pretty darn close! I made absolutely no changes to the recipe except cutting it in half. Use high quality chips! My cookies came out crunchy on the outside and chewy inside just like I like them! Will be making again I'm sure!

Cracked Sugar Cookies I

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
First off - these cookies are awesome! Crispy outside, chewy inside! BUT...I would recommend softening the butter. I also used salted butter because the recipe didn't have salt in it. I am not sure what Cream of Tartar actually is, or if has salt in it but either way the cookies turned out great!

Brown Rice, Broccoli, Cheese and Walnut Surprise

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2010
VERY GOOD! I put the rice in a rice cooker with half homemeade vegetable stock (from this site) and half water. Added garlic and onion powder and about a tsp of spread. While that was cooking I steamed the broccoli and chopped it small, toasted the walnuts and shredded the cheese. I actually added the cheese to the rice cooker when there was still a liquid left so that it melted throughout the rice, then tossed the broccoli in as well. I put into bowls and topped with extra cheese and walnuts. My two year old had his without the nuts and LOVED it - always a plus!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
I am so happy to have found this recipe! I tried potstickers a couple months back and they were so labor intensive I haven't made them since. This is SIMPLE! I used ground white turkey. I also used onion powder rather than chopped onion (no green onions either) and ginger powder for the pickled ginger. Added some drops of sirachi. Iceberg doesn't work that great but its all my store had. Turned out so flavorful - I have a feeling this will be a regular in our house!

Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
Loved it! My cranberries "popped" before 10 minutes so I just lowered the heat and continued to cook and thicken the sauce the full 10 minutes. I also used another reviewers tip and mashed the cranberries as they popped with the back of a spoon. This will be a regular at holidays now!

Basic Vegetable Stock

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
Made mine totally organic with the exception of the bay leaves. I didn't have any regular onions but did use a huge bunch of green onions. I also used 1 t dried thyme, 1 t dried parsely and sea salt. Worked out great!

Roasted-Vegetable Stock

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2010
I made using the exact vegetables listed this time. Easy to make - great results. I think I simmered mine a bit long - only ended up with 4 Cups. This was my first time making vegetable stock and I will continue to make my own now I know how easy it is! I did add almost a full tsp of salt and just a dash of pepper.

Sweet Dinner Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
I tried to make these following the recipes given by another reviewer on how to do it without a bread machine. I missed a step and had to go back and add the egg in ater everything else was done. I think this messed mine up a little but the flavor is excellent and as soon as I get a bread machine I will be making these again!

Cheddar Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
Made using whole wheat flour, only 1/2 t pepper and no butter. Sprayed the bottom of an enamel baking dish with cooking spray. Cooked 40 minutes for 2 medium sized chicken breasts. My breading didn't stick to well after cutting into it but that's ok - I just scooped it up with each bite of chicken :) Very good for a quick weekday meal!

French Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Came out perfect without any modifications at all - except I omitted the cornmeal, I have a two year old so the fewer crumbs, the better! Will definitely be keeping this recipe!

Cheese Soup with Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This soup is the best! I substituted onion powder because I really do not like onions. I omitted the salt, pepper and celery. This will be a regular in our home from now on!

Three Cheese Manicotti

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
I made th recipe as is except for the fact I was a little short on mozarella and substituted almost half colcy-jack (couldn't even tell once baked!). I think next time I'd reduce the spices a little. The only thing I really do not like about this recipe is that even cut in half, it's a lot and there is only 2 of us. I made my own "manicotti shells" from a recipe on this site - all I had to do was drop some of the mixture onto each one and roll it up - super easy and super fast!!

Manicotti Shells

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
I agree that these are a little crepe-like, but once baked they work perfectly! And they were really simple!

PHILADELPHIA® New York Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
This recipe is the closest I've come to making a cheesecake that reminds me of the ones I had growing up on the East coast. Mine came out rich and dense just like I like it! It did brown on top before the recommended bake time so watch it closely as your near the end. I had NO cracking and didn't do anything to prevent it! I used plain grahams to make my crust :)

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2010
Amazingly delicous! I used coconut milk instead of beer as well. I don't know if anyone else has said this but if you do that, reduce the amount of flour you add to it, My batter was a bit too thick. I served mine with an apricot sauce - loved it!

Pot Stickers Traditional

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I have to admit, I thought the filling was going to be bland but it really wasn't at all! I used chicken and powdered onion and ginger in the filling. Used wonton wrappers adn water around the egdes to seal. Crimped them with a fork just to be safe but had no problems with any opening. I used others suggestions and lightly browned them before adding water to the pan and steaming. Delicious! And the dipping sauce is really good. I didn't have chili oil so I used 1/2t srirachi chili sauce instead and it worked great!
