Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2011
Addictive is right, these were really good and addictive. Even my picky, not so adventurous 4-year-old ate the whole thing. They were super easy and quick to make as well.

Pepperoni Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2011
Good, easy to make and taste fairly good. They do tend to be salty from pepperoni and cheese but we all liked them. I noticed that I only needed to bake them for 12 minute. Even then, they were quite brown on the bottom.

Cut-Out Cookies Made with Oat Flour

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
These were very easy to make (my 4-year-old could do it) and had good flavors. Followed the recipe exactly and came out looking and perfect after 7 minutes. We will definitely make them again.

Sauceless Garden Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
This was just okay. I felt like I was eating panzanella salad and I should have known that the ingredients were really similar to panzanella. My kids liked eating them so it was a huge plus but I prefer eating panzanella salad over this lasagna. Also, if you are feeding little ones like mine, it's easier to chop up all the vegetables (especially the tomatoes) so they small and easy to eat.

Jan's Pretzel Dogs

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
These were very easy to make. However, I didn't use the 1/4 cup kosher salt to sprinkle on top and they were still way too salty for our family's tastes (I used Oscar Mayer Angus hot dogs). Also, they turned really dark after 10 minutes of baking. Next time, I will reduce the temperature to 425 or even lower so they won't be so brown (border line of being burned) as well. It is a keeper recipe with minor adjustments.

Double Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten-free)

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
These cookies are very delicious, I make them for my boys who love chocolate chip cookies (trying my best to feed them healthier alternative to regular cookies). The first time I made them, I didn't know that Elana's recipes don't come out right if I use "Bob's Red Mill's Almond Flour" and the cookies came out very greasy and crumbled all over. They tasted good but they were not very pleasant to look at. Since then I got her cookbooks and found out that she cautions people to not use Bob's Red Mills almond flour because they are courser in texture and don't work with her recipes. She has recommendations on her website on which flour to use. Since I switched my almond flour, they come out great. Thought people might want to know since Bob's Red Mill is the most common brand in supermarkets.

Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
This was a good pie recipe. I had actually made a 10" pie but kept all the ingredients the same and it worked out great. I personally don't care for the smell of rhubarb so next time, I will add some lemon juice and/or lemon zest to kill/mask the smell of rhubarb. Or maybe some orange juice and/or zest. My kids and hubby were very happy with the pie, though.

Silver Dollar Pancakes (Gluten-free)

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
These are great pancakes. I know the recipe creator Elana Amsterdam (I have her cookbooks) recommends NOT using Bob's Red Mill Almond flour because they are not as fine as what she used to test her recipes with. Before I knew that, I was using Bob's Red Mill Almond Flour and was getting really grainy oily outcome from her recipes. I recommend switching to something else.

Meatball Nirvana

Reviewed: May 1, 2011
I made these last night since my kids asked for meatballs for dinner. I didn't have time to read the reviews so I followed the recipe exactly and here is what I found out. You don't need the 1/2 teaspoon sea salt it calls for, the garlic salt, Worcestershire sauce and Parmesan cheese provide plenty of salt on their own (and I believe the bread crumbs have some as well) and instead of dicing the onion, I will be grating it next time. The cooking time in my oven was around 20 minutes, any longer would have made the meatballs overcooked. Also, if you are making these for small kids, you might want to omit hot pepper sauce or crushed red peppers or both. I used both and my kids were fine.

Di's Delicious Deluxe Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
These were quite good. I followed the recipe and finished with smoked Spanish paprika. My kids and hubby liked them as well.

Easy Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2011
Other than being very simple to make, this ice cream recipe is just waaaaaaaaaay too sweet. I was worried about it being sweet but I tried it anyway and I was right. Maybe unsweetened chocolate (melted) or unsweetened cocoa powder next time. Not recommend it.

Chewy Spice Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2011
These bars turned out pretty yummy. I was worried when I was mixing all of the last 4 ingredients because my dough became so thick and stiff that my Kitchenaid stand mixer (the mighty one) stopped turning/mixing!!! I proceeded to mix them a little more by hand to make sure they were all mixed in well and baked them in my 1/4 sheet pan. It came out golden and beautiful. I think next time, I will use dark chocolate chips and reduce the amount of sugar because it was just a little too sweet for what we like.

Jim's Cheddar Onion Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
Though it's not a traditional Irish soda bread recipe, this ended up being my favorite soda bread recipe. I have tried 3 or so Irish soda bread recipes in the past but never found any of them to be interesting enough to try making them again. Not this one!! I used Irish sharp cheddar cheese and fresh onions to make the bread and we just loved it. I will definitely make them again, maybe adding fresh herbs next time like chives or dill.

Guinness® Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
This recipe just turned out to be an okay recipe. The beef never turned out as good as I had hoped, it was very salty and tough even though I cooked it for 3.5 hours. I usually cook my corned beef in water with potatoes, carrots and cabbage and I will go back doing that. I thought this was a waste of good Guinness beer.

Whole Wheat Beer Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
This bread turned out too salty and kind of dense for our taste. I would use a lot less salt (I used kosher salt) next time. I also think melted butter on the bottom of the pan and drizzled on top (make sure you use unsalted butter) will improve the taste dramatically.

Rosemary-Scented Pork Loin Stuffed With Roasted Garlic, Dried Apricots and Cranberries and Port Wine Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2011
I tried this recipe because it was rated so high AND I like Pam Anderson's recipes. Boy, am I glad I did. I halved the amount of pork I used because I was only cooking for 4 (and we still have lots of left over) but used the full amount of everything else (stuffing and sauce etc.) for the pork. It tasted soooooo good and I am not even a pork easter. I hardly cook pork because I cannot stand the smell of it but this tasted really good and I didn't notice the odor/smell I dislike of pork. I will be making it again.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2011
This tasted pretty good, however, I will use less vegetable oil next time as I thought it was just too much. Maybe 2 tablespoons or even less. I also used tomato sauce with no salt because I was worried it was going to be too salty. And it was just perfect. I will be making this again.

Fiesta Chicken with Black Bean Salsa

Fabulous Fargozas

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out really yummy. I had ground rosemary so that's what I used instead of regular kind. I didn't find them too garlicky either. I did make sure the garlic was finely crushed and minced.

New Orleans Corn Bisque with Smoked Sausage

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
This was such an easy recipe to follow and turned out pretty well. It was quick to make as well. I used smoked sausage with no casing (my kids and I don't care for the casing) and used a half olive oil and a half butter as well as almond milk in stead of regular milk because that's what I had. I was afraid that the flavor was going to be off because of the almond milk but it tasted pretty good, thanks to the smoked sausage. We all liked it. I did not serve it with cheddar cheese or parsley but it tasted good anyway.
