Awesome Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
I normally would pass on any recipe using a whole cup of oil (we aren't exactly frying the muffins!), but I read a few reviews first and found that it could easily be reduced to 1/3 cup. So I did that, and also pureed a pear with a tablespoon of milk to throw in as well. I omitted the raisins, as I had none on hand, and added a teaspoon of vanilla extract and a 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. Baked on the top rack, 350 for 30 minutes and they came out absolutely PERFECT. Moist, soft, and really delicious. My 5 year old and 2 year old just had one each for breakfast; I love yummy kid-friendly recipes!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2013
I liked the pancakes but I wish the recipe had noted that you only need to use all that salt if you are using unsalted butter! I forgot all about that little rule and my pancakes were SO salty. Blech, salty pancakes!!

Apple Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
These were SO GOOD. I didn't change a thing and they came perfect. The second time I made them I omitted the raisins on request from the kids, and still thy were amazingly good.

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
I've tried making butternut squash fries several times and this is the closest they've come to being actual fries. First I tossed them with olive oil and a generous amount of cinnamon. I did NOT salt them beforehand because I did not want to draw out any additional moisture. I salted them immediately after taking them out of the oven instead. I sliced them thinly and kept a close eye on them. As soon as they were nicely browned on one side, then flipped them and waited for them to brown on the other side as well. But be careful, there is a pretty short time between "nicely browned" and burned so don't wait too long. But don't flip prematurely either, because they will be soggy. All in all, some were burnt and some were soggy, but most were perfectly delicious.

Baked Salmon II

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2013
Delicious salmon recipe. Would've been perfect if not for all the oil. Perhaps if you removed the skin you would still need all that oil, but I kept the skin on and I wish I had used much less oil. Next time 2 tablespoons will be more than enough. Other than that, I wouldn't change a thing. I served mine with a side of pesto coated orzo and artichoke hearts. Loved it!

Green Bean and Mushroom Medley

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
This is an easy and nutritious go-to side dish but I had to make a few changes that helped bring it over the top. I switched out the carrots for sliced up red and yellow peppers and I used a few tbsp's of olive oil instead of butter. I sautéed the onions and garlic first, then threw in the veggies. I skipped the step where you steam the green beans. After about 5 minutes I added about 1/2 cup of chicken stock and allowed it to reduce for about 10 more minutes. Then at the very end I added some chopped fresh parsley and sliced kalamata olives. I suppose I changed so much that it's practically a new recipe, but it really came out so delicious!

Butternut and Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2012
This came out absolutely beautiful and delicious. I didn't have any cream cheese on hand and used milk instead. I like creamy soups so next time I'll try it with the cream cheese, but only use half the package. A whole package seems like it might be overpowering, considering it is still delicious with none at all. I love using roasted garlic in my soups as well so I roasted a head of garlic with the squash and threw the garlic in the food processor too. I roasted the seeds from inside the squash and sprinkled them over the top for a nice crunch. Served with homemade sweet potato biscuits for a really impressive meal.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
A lot of people seemed to write in their reviews that there was too much chocolate chips and I thought "how could there EVER be too many chocolate chips?" But now I actually agree with them, because the chocolate taste was a little to overpowering and you didn't really get enough pumpkin taste in the muffin. I actually used more pupkin than called for and double the cinnamon and nutmeg. Next time, less chocolate chips and maybe even more pumpkin? I had no cloves and could've used allspice. I'll try it with the allspice next time too.

Thighs on Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2012
This was very good but I admit I changed it up quite a bit. I used thyme instead of italian seasoning, olive oil instead of butter, chicken stock instead of bouillon, and brown rice instead of white, and added peas and carrots to the rice. I also used two cups of rice to five cups of half stock half water (brown rice calls for more water). It took quite a while to cook, about 1.5 hours. and I parboiled the rice first. As suggested by another reviewer, I turned the chicken over halfway through to keep it from drying out. At the very end, I put it under the broiler for 5-6 minutes to crisp up the skin. There was still water when I took it out, but it quickly soaked into the rice after I took it out. The end result was delicious, and the rice had an almost risotto-like texture. My only complaint is that it was pretty greasy. I would definitely not used a 1/4 cup of butter as is suggested. Next time I'd like to try skinless thighs to help keep the grease-factor down. Overall, I think I have a new one-pot dish to add to the rotation!

Todd's Famous Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
Delicious and easy. Never going to buy pancake mix again. I used frozen blueberries because I had no fresh and it was still good. Also, I've made it and let it sit and also made it with no time to let it sit, and there seemed to be no difference either way. They came out great both times. I've also made then with whole wheat flour and they were good.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
Simple and good. This is my go-to sugar cookie recipe for making cookies with my son. I bought a big box of cookie cut-outs and add food coloring and other decorations for my son and I to use when it's cookie-baking time.

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
So good and so healthy! I told my picky three year old that they were "green chips" and he liked them! This is a side dish that everyone should be making.

Mama's Potato Salad

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
Simple and delicious! I've made it several times for family BBQ's and always get high praise. The only thing I do differently is omit the horseradish because it's not something I ever have on hand.

Whole Wheat Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2011
These are god but I'm giving four stars for this for two reasons. First, because I added cinnamon and nutmeg, which made a BIG difference in the flavor, and also because they always seem to come out dry. I've made them several times, and I put extra milk and an extra egg but they are still a bit dry. I really like this as a base recipe for whole wheat muffins, because you can make your own additions or changes every time you make them. Also I used only ww flour.

Blueberry Muffins I

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2011
These were delicious. However I think it needs a cup of sugar and a cup of blueberries to be just right.

Red Cabbage Salad II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
Simple and really tasty. I found myself addicted to it the first day and couldn't stop eating it, but I admit that the recipe yields so much that I was sick of it the next day. Next time I'll cut it in half :)

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2010
This is the best lentil soup I've ever had! I used half stock/half water, a 28oz can of crushed tomatoes, and doubled the garlic and herbs. Adding spinach at the end really sends the soup over the top (I only had frozen but it was fine). I used balsamic vinegar and cut it down to one tablespoon so as not to be overpowering. It was perfect! I tasted just a hint of it in the soup and it was sooo good. I served the soup with some biscuits. I will definitely be making this again!!

Grilled Chicken Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
These were SO delicious!! I didn't have Old Bay seasoning so I just left it out and added some fresh basil. I also used only one lb of chicken but left all other measurements the same, which made eight small-medium sized patties. I really like the addition of the veggies and was thrilled when my two year old asked for more! I will be making these again, maybe next time I'll try turkey meat to see how it comes out.

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2010
This is delicious! Every time I make it I get rave reviews. The dressing is absolutely perfect, and to the salad I add small chunks of avocado and carrots to add creaminess and crunch. I highly recommend, especially on a hot summer day!
