Wheat Berry Salad with Olives and Garlic

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2014
Needs the addition of acid. Add lemon juice, red wine vinegar or balsamic vinegar.

Mint Julep Cocktail

Reviewed: May 4, 2014
I am wondering if 1 teaspoon was supposed to be 1 tablespoon. Basically it is straight bourbon otherwise. We kept working on the formula and decided we liked more mint and more syrup. Of course by the 5th round we thought they were excellent. It turned out to be an epic Derby Day. Maybe some citrus soda or peach brandy would have mellowed the flavor a bit. But then it wouldn't be a traditional julep.

Made-in-Minutes No-Cook Fudge

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
I just recently learned the benefits of unrefined coconut oil and wanted to try this. I used 1/2 the cocoa powder for a lighter flavor and a bit of vanilla as well. I can see adding in coconut flakes or chopped nuts. I warmed the oil slightly so it would blend easily and now I am eating it with a spoon.

Healthy "Italian Mac and Cheese" with Carrot Puree

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2014
Healthy? Hardly! But healthier. I love the idea of sneaking in carrots into this comfort dish. Heavy cream makes for a great dish but 1% does fine too. I often add cooked veggies. Steamed broccoli is my favorite but for folks whose kids don't "do" veggies it is a good idea.

Stef's Super Cheesy Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2014
Concept is good but WAAAAY too much fat. The second time I made it I used 1/4 c butter, 2 T olive oil and 2 - 3 T mayo. The mayo was still overpowering. I will cut it down more or omit altogether.

Dipping Sauce for Coconut Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
Goes great with coconut shrimp. I used my rhubarb orange marmalade since it was open and ended up adding some fresh chopped pineapple to stretch it.

Southern-Style Oven-Fried Catfish

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2013
This turned out quite crisp, tasting like fried without being greasy. I forgot my hot sauce in the egg this first time. :( I also subbed 1/2 Panko for 1/2 the cornmeal because we don't like just corn meal. I will make this again.

Rich and Creamy Roasted Eggplant Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2013
As written I have to say this was quite bland. I ended up adding cumin, turmeric and other assorted spices as well as roasted red pepper. I was going to add sliced, sauteed mushrooms but I don't think I will even waste my shrooms; we probably will not finish the leftovers. It is edible now with the add ins.

German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2013
Pretty good. I had to make twice the amount of sauce called for to cover four potatoes; that was before it even soaked in. Didn't have green onions so I sauteed onion in the grease before adding sauce ingredients and added chopped fresh chives before serving.

Best Zucchini Appetizer

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2013
This is a good base recipe other than it needs a lot more seasoning. I cut down on the squash and added some asparagus that needed used. Many different veggies would go well with this recipe: mushrooms, peppers, cooked diced potato, a handful of leftover green beans... use your imagination.

Spicy Cabbage Kimchi

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
As written after squeezing out the water I have no liquid left to cover the vegetables. I added a tiny bit of salt (I cut down on original amount and am worried about spoilage) and topped off with kefir whey. Results in four days. Stay tuned. **People who say it is way too salty. It needs to sit and ferment for at least a week. The salt will mellow. I do not feel it needs this amount.

Spinach Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: May 22, 2013
Oh. My. Gawd. This was fabulous. My changes: I sauteed the chopped stem with some onion and garlic, then tossed the spinach in to wilt. I think it made it more manageable. Did not even detect the pepperoni so I will probably leave it out next time although it may have been scant as I don't measure. Go light on salt. Only my second 5 star rating.

Nuoc Cham Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2013
Since it won't let me edit my review I will add another one. The second time I made this I thickened with corn starch stirred into part of the water. We liked it better this way.

Chili Rellenos Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2013
This was pretty good and very easy. I had fresh peppers to use so roasted, steamed and peeled them first.(Had three and cut recipe in half.) Didn't do any sauce but it needed some enchilada sauce. NOT plain tomato sauce though!
