Tropical Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
Fabulous flavor, though making sure they're only fork-tender is important! I used 1 tbsp table salt instead of kosher, and will decrease it to 2 tsp table salt next time.

Ham And Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
After cooking vegetables, remove, re-oil pan, add egg mixture, then sprinkle veggies on top, so eggs don't stick terribly.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
Great with tripled sauce, 5 carrots, 1 cup sliced bell peppers, and chicken instead of shrimp.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
Truly fabulous! I used 2 tbsp cornstarch for the flour for gluten-intolerant kids. Also the 1 tbsp vanilla and 3 tbsp water instead of 1/4 cup water. I added 1 tsp cinnamon, a dash of vanilla, and added the syrup to the apples, then poured into the shell.

Chocolate Velvet Ice Cream

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
Great, but don't use the chocolate chips - they freeze rock hard.

Sweet Potato Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
Great use of leftover sweet potatoes. I went ahead with the sugar reduction and split (1 cup total, 1/2 brown, half white) and used homemade applesauce for the oil. I also substituted chocolate chips for the pecans and they were a hit with the kids in muffins and mini loaves.

Simple Marinara Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2009
Ugh. We didn't use cheese, since the kids can't have dairy, but I don't think that could have saved it. I have made much better sauces! I was just hoping this one would work out since I had the ingredients on hand for a last minute dinner and I forgot to save the recipe I used last time on this site.

Sweet Potato French Toast

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Tastes great, though I'm sure there's not much added nutritional benefit, nor is there much change in flavor.

Crispy Cucumbers and Tomatoes in Dill Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2009
Loved it! Mixed all but cukes to marinate early, adding tomatoes last half hour. I also used less onion for the kids' sakes.

Almond Wild Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
Great, but make a half recipe for a smaller family - the leftovers aren't as appealing as the fresh dish.

Pork Chops with Blue Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Gravy is great with side of potatoes (I did baked, mashed would be good too.) I prefer a thinner gravy, so don't cook too long.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: May 13, 2009
"1 serving" served 2 generously, and I used half the garlic powder plus fresh oregano and a dash of nutmeg. It was great!

Easy Indian Style Okra

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
It was okay, a decent side dish with an Indian meal, but not really flavorful.

Cream of Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2009
I like the flavor of butternut squash soup much better - same idea, different squash.

Egyptian Koshari

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
The kids actually ate it pretty well! Used other members adjustments on the sauce and loved it myself.

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
Fabulous! Also can be cooked stove-top, but much more labor intensive.

Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

I prefer granny smith apples for the best apple flavor!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
The vinegar flavor wasn't my favorite, but the kids loved it, so we'll keep it - and it was easy!

Coconut Tilapia with Apricot Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
Too much creole seasoning - it was very salty. I'm going to cut that by half and hope that fixes it. But the amount of "breading" was perfect for 4 fillets. For the dipping sauce, I used 1/3 cup orange jam and 1 tsp german mustard. I think I'll go with apricot jam next time, but same proportions.

Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2009
This is the recipe I've been looking for for years! Chewy and delicious. I made gluten free with the standard rice/tapioca/potato starch/xanthan gum combo.
