Chocolate Nut Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Wonderful, beautiful and easy! One batch wihout silvered almonds and in its place added extra 1/8 cup chopped dark orange flavored chocolate. The other batch was per recipe...dipped and drizzled both with chocolate. Will make again and again! Thank you for such as a delicious recipe. Definite winner!

Turkey Bacon Avocado Sandwich

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2009
My favorite things to eat! Omitted the mayo, lettuce and cheese. Replaced the bread with a toasted bagel and regular bacon with crisp turkey bacon - layered open faced leftover turkey breast, organic avocado, turkey bacon, vine ripe tomatoe and lots of cracked black pepper. Significant other thinks it looked strange to say the least as he munched away on his traditional hot turkey leftovers...but what does he know about good eats! It was exceptional! ...think I will do it again!

Mimi's Zucchini Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
This is an excellent recipe! The only changes I made were to substitute with brocoli as that is what I had on hand, stewed tomatoes for fresh as I was making stewed tomatoes from a recipe on this site, cut the oil to about 1/8 cup of EVOO and baked them in a lined/sprayed muffin tin for about 15 minutes for a grab and go morning meal. Next time if I have a group to cook for I will make it into a pie. Thanks Mimi!

Sweet and Sour Meatballs I

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
I have been making this recipe for years with excellent results. I make the meatballs with 1/2 ground turkey and 1/2 lean ground beef mixed with egg, little oatmeal for binding, garlic, onion, parsley or whatever I have on hand and then gently "brown" the meatballs on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. I then drain off excess fat and cool them enough to handle before adding them (couple at a time) to the crockpot with the already warm sauce and heat on low for a couple hours, giving them a gentle "toss" once or twice. Thank you for reminding me of this wonderful and easy recipe.

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
Had some eggplant I needed to use so thought I would try this! Glad I did...had a girlfriend for dinner who loved it/she is a veggie lover... and gave her a copy of the recipe...next time I plan to make it with the suggested veggies minus mushrooms! Thanks for a terrific recipe...I will surely make this dish often!

This dessert has a nice flavor and is light and fluffy, however, we were not impressed enough to make it again. Thank you, Beth, for submitting the recipe.

Bing Cherry Daiquiri

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
Served them at a dinner party for 8 Saturday night! Everybody loved them! Only change I made was I did not infuse the cherries into rum and used a little extra rum... tossed scoops of washed, seeded and halved cherries into the blender with ice and rest of the ingredients and got wonderful frozen cherry daiquiris! Will definitely make again with fruits in season! Thanks for a terrific recipe...they kept the party going until dinner was served which was, by the way, peppered chicken breasts with cherry wine sauce!

Wine Fondue

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
This was a terrific fondue. Used electric fondue dish so the wine sauce (which was delic) evaporated quickly so I added beef and chicken stock to continue the fun (no other changes)...delic and good conversational dinner... used beef fondue with onion-horseradish sauce from Beef fondue with Sauces from this site...this is definitely a keeper!

Ken's Perfect Hard Boiled Egg (And I Mean Perfect)

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2010
I made these eggs exactly as directed. They are amazing...the egg is cooked to perfection and the shell falls off the egg when cracked-how much more easy can it be!? Thanks Ken for a terrific recipe!

Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
I have been making acorn squash for years like this just for me since my significant other sticks his nose up to any vegetable. I have, however, not split the baking but willl do that today when I bake one for dinner. Acorn squash is also excellent plain which I sometimes do as I like cooking in the nude. Thank you for a reminder of a delicious and nutritious recipe.

Intensely Chocolate Mousse Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2009
I made this mousse cake yesterday and it turned out fantastic. Baking in a bath is a good idea and keeps it moist...we used an 8" springform pan. Did not use chocolate curls but next time I will fancy it up a little. Thanks for a great recipe!

Best Peanut Butter Cookies Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Wonderful little critters, they are! Went to Pops in the Park Concert and was trying to find something that would be delicous and travel well. Made exactly as indicated...made a big hit ... to the point I was asked to post the recipe on the meetup's website. Thanks Bakingnuts for a super peanut butter cookie! (Next time I plan to try them with 1/2 cup less sugar and use brown sugar instead of white).

Spinach and Leek White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
This is an excellent vegetarian dish. I made it exactly as directed (next time I will double the broth) except I used fresh canellini beans that I had cooked previously and froze in 16 oz packages and boxed chicken broth instead of canned.

Tex-Mex Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
This soup is a definite 5+. I made a few changes to suit personal preference...we are not big tomatoe fans so I skiped the tomatoe soup, instead of canned tomatoes I seeded two large organic tomatoes and cut in small bits, skipped salsa, used fresh parsley from my garden, skipped boullion and instead used 3 cups organic chicken broth and 3 cups water, 3 cups of organic black turtle beans that I boiled for 1 1/2 hours and drained in place of canned beans, 1 cup frozen corn, light sour cream, skipped cilantro because didn't have any, added additional spices and hot sauce. Cooked on high for about 4 hours in crock pot. Before serving I squeezed fresh lime over each bowl; offered choice of recommended topings. As per advice of another reviewer I made my own tortilla chips and squeezed a bit of lime over them as well. Even my ever so picky significant other took a bite and said "this is good"...he even had a small second bowl. Good job, guys, keep em' coming! Happy Holidays!
