Milly's Oatmeal Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2014
This tasted good but it was way too crumbly. I'm wondering if maybe it shouldn't have had both baking soda and baking powder in it, because it rose a lot. I loved that it tasted like cookies, but the texture just didn't work well for me.

Rocky Road Candies

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2013
I used 16 oz and the chocolate barely covered the marshmallows. It will not harden and it can't be cut.

Chicken with Mushrooms, Prosciutto, and Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
This was good enough. I think some of the mistakes were mine, but I also think it would have been pretty tasteless just prepared as written. I used boneless skinless thighs, because it's easier and healthier. Also skipped the melted butter. I did prepare the mushrooms (a LOT of mushrooms) ahead of time by sauteing them with garlic in an ounce of bacon and a tiny bit of oil. Then after they were soft, I added 1/4 cup sherry. I put this and some water-packed diced artichoke hearts in the bottom of the pan.I used 10 boneless skinless thighs and about 1/4 lb prosciutto, sliced very fine. I would use a bit more next time. It took longer than I expected in the oven (maybe 45 minutes - a lot for boneless!) and then when I added the drippings/mushrooms to my pan with the (fat free) sour cream and more sherry, I got distracted and it boiled, breaking the sauce. I'm not sure if it would have broken anyway since it was fat free, but I've never had that problem before. It was still tasty, just ugly. I served it with quinoa risotto and garlicky green beans. It was a tasty meal, but not as healthy as most of my food. It also took more work. I'm not used to salting my food, since I usually use strong spices like curry, but it was a nice "bistro" moment. My boyfriend said he liked it, but we'll see if we finish all the leftovers...

Pad Thai Popcorn

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
I really liked this. I skipped the cilantro (unfortunately, it tastes like soap to me), and used 2T sriracha in place of the chili paste. I read other reviews that said there was enough sauce for more popcorn so I used a little over 1/2 cup popcorn and I wish I had used a lot more. That made about 14 cups popped corn (using the paper bag in microwave method) and I think that it would have tasted better with about 50% more popcorn with the same amount of sauce. I used 4oz of unsalted roasted peanuts and went at them with a mortar and pestle. I thought it was plenty salty and that was enough peanuts. My bf and I ate about half the recipe when it was done. I am trying to save the rest for tomorrow. I plan to make this at my parents' house for 4th of July. It was a lot easier than other caramel corns I've made.

Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2013
So, I like the idea, but the recipe as written is terrible. First, as others mentioned, it is way too salty. Perhaps it was supposed to read 6 teaspoons of tamari? I used only half of what was called for and it was barely edible. Also, the proportion of the meat to "veggies" was way off. I had to hunt around for pieces of non-meat. I also had to up the hot sauce (I used sriracha). To improve this, I would replace the mango and sweet potato with real vegetables, because with a sweet sauce, you barely notice them. Then, I would use 3 tablespoons of tamari and 1 tablespoon of fish sauce to add more complexity. I also only use boneless skinless thighs, as they stay more moist. I served it over quinoa, which was great, as there was lots of sauce (it was more like a stew than a stir-fry, which I liked about the recipe).

Veggie Turkey Meatloaf with Tangy Balsamic Glaze

Reviewed: May 31, 2013
I really, really like this, and normally I hate meatloaf. I love how it's got lots of veggies (I add more) and it doesn't use beef. But what really makes it is the sauce! However, it doesn't get 5 stars because it requires some changes (well, at least for my palate): 1) The seasoning is weird. The "Italian" doesn't go well with the other flavors, so I would minimize it and play around. Also, I couldn't find the other mix, so I just added cayenne, salt, pepper, and garlic. 2) The sauce is too "balsamic-y" with just the few ingredients and there isn't enough for my taste. I more than doubled the sauce and added tamari, Worcestershire, sriracha, and instead of honey I used a pineapple habanero salsa from Costo (we can't get enough of the stuff). Obviously, we like things spicy-sweet. 3)To cut down on carbs, I used less bread crumbs, and I used panko (because that's what I had in the house). 4)I served it with spaghetti squash. 5)I upped the quantities of most things and for 1.5lb of turkey, we got 8 servings.

Buffalo Chicken Wing Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2012
This needed a lot of help. I started with less milk, as others noted it was very thin. It was still very thin, and had too little meat. So I added more meat (boneless/skinless thighs pan fried in hot sauce with very little butter). Used low-fat/fat free everything. It was very thin so I added frozen okra, frozen zucchini, and diced carrot and celery. My bf and I liked it a lot in the end, and it wasn't too unhealthy once I made my changes. Remember to use hot sauce, not hot WING sauce, because the wing sauce is filled with oil.
