Zesty Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2015
Just now made it and and am letting it sit in the frig, but I did taste a little and it was delicious. I doubled the quinoa. I put a little too much salt in it, but that was my own fault. I added sweet red pepper for more veggies. Yummy!! Thank you for the recipe.

Cara's Moroccan Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2015
I made this as written, other than I couldn't find fresh mint or thyme so I used dried. It was very good, but it didn't blow me away, either. Just by itself, I didn't find it satisfying enough and didn't have pita bread or rice to serve with it. I think that would definitely have helped. It smelled heavenly while cooking. I used frozen butternut squash instead of fresh - far easier to deal with! Thanks for the recipe! I would make it again.

Healthy Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2015
I made this as written, except I used tilapia and cod for the fish. Oh, I added a tsp. or two of fresh jalapeño to the salsa and added shredded cabbage to the tacos, so very small changes. Loved this recipe! The only thing I would change next time is to use a tad less brown sugar. The salsa was pretty sweet, but definitely delicious.

World's Best Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2014
Made thes two years now and it's been the creamiest pb fudge I've ever made. Like others, I added a tsp. off vanilla and I premixed the fluff, peanut butter and flour. Didn't need a candy thermometer! Love this recipe, thanks!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
I have made a few different versions of carrot cake, but this, combined with the cream cheese icing II on this website, is simply to-die-for. I used pecans instead of walnuts and added a pinch of cloves and about about 1/8 tsp. of nutmeg to make is spicier. Otherwise followed the recipe and it is fantastic. This will become my only carrot cake recipe! Thanks so much for sharing this.

Chef John's Sausage & Shrimp Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2014
This is wonderfully spicy and tasty. I cooked Minute Rice separate in the interest of having it done sooner. I didn't have quite enough shrimp, so I diced up chicken breast and added it. I used frozen asparagus pieces in place of green pepper since I have a family member who hates peppers. Added extra celery. I did not add the cayenne pepper because I couldn't find mine, and I honestly felt it would be plenty hot and spicy without it, and it was.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
Excellent soup, but I didn't follow the recipe exactly. More or less doubled recipe and used too much water so added about a 1/8 C potato flakes to the roux to thicken it because I like thick potato soup. Grated fresh pepper in it, didn't add salt at all. Used leeks instead of onion due to taste preference. Oh, instead of bouillon cubes used two packets of Knorr chicken soup base (think they're about 2 TBS each). I used red potatoes and didn't peel them. I mashed them with a potato masher right in the pan after they were cooked. Still stuck close enough to feel like I can adequately rate this wonderful recipe.

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2014
This stuff is amazing! Followed the recipe pretty closely, but I probably added a little extra chicken and chicken broth, plus added a can of black beans. As some suggested, I used Ro-Tel crushed tomatoes with cilantro, etc. I only had a little parsley left so omitted that by necessity. I served crushed blue and yellow tortilla chips with it, plus yogurt or sour cream, white rice if anyone wanted it with rice, and some shredded Mexican cheese. This stuff is to-die-for! Mine made a huge batch, so it should be good for several meals. I plan to make this a regular in my household! Thanks, Catherine!

World's Best Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2013
Excellent, old-fashioned gingerbread. Only made small changes - used part brown sugar, part white. Increased spices slightly. Doubled recipe and was a little too much batter for 9x11 pan - made really thick slices. Served with fresh whipping cream for Christmas. Yummy!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
I have made these twice and they are wonderful. I stuck pretty close to the recipe and they were just perfect.

Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2013
Made it for the second time just now. It was wonderful - spices were just perfect in taste, although I did cut the salt by half for health reasons and substituted truvia for sugar. Overdid the andouille sausage first time, plan to only add about half the quantity. Followed the recipe pretty much both times though. However, as Clara Peller once said, "Where's the (beef) RICE?!"

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
I've tried numerous PB fudge recipes and this is by far the best ever. Followed directions to the letter. One weird thing, though, is that there are little pellets of what I believe is crystallized sugar in it, and I don't know how that happened. Otherwise, creamy, amazing fudge! Oh, I live at a high altitude and still boiled it 7 minutes. Wondered about that when I started.

Chocolate-Banana Tofu Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
I liked this very much, but it really needed to be bit sweeter, so I added about an eighth tsp. of Stevia and liked the taste better. I'm happy to find a low fat, healthy dessert! Thanks for sharing this, Mirby.

Beaker's Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
I've made this twice and it's wonderful. I do add more veggies than this calls for. Added green beans and parsnips this time. Very flavorful. Didn't add sugar - not sure why soup needs sugar. Followed recipe otherwise. Very yummy comfort food.

Enchiladas Suizas

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
This is soooo good that it deserves maximum stars. I followed others and fried corn tortillas in cooking spray, dipped in green sauce, rolled chicken & cheese inside. Added red enchilada sauce (1 C) to the verde mixture over the top. Oh, used fresh roasted green chilis, too. Skipped green onions but added cherry tomatoes and green olives, along with avocado. My entire family loved it so much we ate every bite in one evening (four adults). Absolutely delicious - thanks for recipe. This is a keeper!

Blueberry Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
Very good flavor. I used sherry instead of apple juice. Yummy. I didn't give five stars because the topping was kind of sparse rather than nice and thick like some cobblers are. However, I used an extra 1/2 C or so of both peaches and blueberries. If I were to make it again, I would double the doughy topping unless I stuck to strict fruit measurements. Oh, and I used 1/2 tsp. of cinammon and nutmeg instead of mace, as other readers suggested. I would probably add more spice next time, too, because I love cinammon taste on peaches. Still, it was very good and not at all difficult to make.

Awesome Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2011
Incredibly good soup. I followed the recipe very closely. One tip - I went to Natural Grocers for lemongrass, and they only had dried lemongrass (bulk foods). My colander wasn't fine enough to strain out the lemongrass, and the texture IS like eating dried grass. The taste is worth it to make sure to include, but I was spooning out pieces of lemongrass because it was like eating pieces of straw. Make sure to use a fine strainer if you can. The recipe was very time consuming (I did a double batch), but the results were worth it. I put the noodles into the broth and they did use up a lot of the broth, so I added some chicken broth toward the end.

Linguine with Seafood and Sundried Tomatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
Superb recipe. I followed it pretty closely, other than adding in an extra half pound of scallops. My family said it was outstanding, something they rarely say about a particular recipe. Tasted like a gourmet meal, truly.
