Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2009
These are the best. I need nut free granola bars and want them to be preservative free and low in sugar. Good luck finding them in a grocery store. I used 1/2 butter melted, no sugar, 3/4 c. honey and 1/4 c. applesauce. I pressed them into a pampered chef large bar pan (similar to a cookie sheet), covered them with waxed paper and rolled them with a rolling pin. The first time I made them I took them out 1/2 way to roll them again (covered with waxed paper). I let them cool partially in the pan, cut them into 32 and wrapped them all indiv. and then put them into a large freezer bag and popped them into the freezer. They are delicious frozen and are perfect for popping into the kids lunch boxes in the am (the schools are nut free...hence my quest for a peanut butter free granola bar). They also make a healty breakfast choice when you are in a rush to get out the door (of course this depends on what you add for accessories....I tried craisins, white chocolate chips and sunflower seeds the first time....and semi-sweet mini choc chips with raisins and sunflower seeds the second time). I will be making these weekly during the school year FOR SURE!! Thanks SO much for this recipe!!

Maple Dill Carrots

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Oh My Gosh....I really....and I mean REALLY second guessed teh dill with the sugar....I love garlic, cream and dill...the usual...but really hesitated but decided to go for it. Boy am I ever glad I did. I first steamed the carrots and then tossed them in the melted butter brown sugar and dried dill (didn't have fresh)...and it was so so good. Loved it. It is barely finised and the kids haven't tasted it...can't wait until they do and will post an update. Thanks

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2009
Sooo delicious. I am biased as I really love this combo of vinegar, oil, cumin and cilantro. You really can't go wrong....and when you throw in veggies, grains or beans it can't help but work.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
I loved this....it was such a change from the canned mushroom soup recipes most of the meat dish preparations require on this site. It was subtle with a hint of caramel sweetness. I should say that I forgot to buy the pecans on my shopping trip...and only had one apple at home so substituted a pear for the second apple. It was delish....I liked the mix of apple and pear. Since they look alike on top of the pork you're not quite sure what to expect with each bite.

Hot German Potato Salad III

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
When I first took a bit I thought it was a bit too sour...but after a few mouthfuls I quite liked it. My 15 year old step-son loved it and wondered if I could fry the potatoes and use for a breakfast dish. May be....we'll see.

Beer Lime Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
This chicken is moist, but otherwise nothing special. It's not difficult to make chicken moist if you cook it properly so the 3 stars is for flavor alone. The combination of flavors good but there is just something missing. There seems to be too much beer, I think you could cut it in half and keep the rest of the ingredients the same. Perhaps then the flavor of the garlic could be appreciated.

Pesto Chicken Florentine

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
My sister made this for a dinner party and it was delicious. She used a ton of spinach though and everybody gave it rave reviews.

Apricot Brown Sugar Ham

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2009
We loved this glaze. I used a brandied peach jam since I didn't have apricot. The foil stuck to my roasting pan...guess I should have expected this but it has been a pain to clean up. Next time I will spray the pan before adding foil. This will be my "go to" ham recipe from now on. Easy and delicious.

Skillet Ham, Cabbage and Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
This was simple but tasted just like the individual parts of the dish...so no surprises on tasting. Having said that it was healthy and hearty and would have been a much better alternative to the overboiled patatoes I used to make for my family as a "tween". My family would have died and gone to heaven to come home to this :)

Grilled Lamb with Brown Sugar Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
Very good...I discovered I like a savory lamb dish to a sweet one. This was my first "sweet" attmept. Then my 12 year old daughter gave me "heck" for cooking a baby sheep...so that did kind of ruin it for me I must say. Overall though...I would make it again.

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
Fabulous....moist .....juicy.....tasty. What can I say. This is the only way I will roast a chicken in the future. I do love onions though so will add some to the next chicken I roast. Oh...I used a free range chicken...so that always lends an exceptional flavor to the recipe.

Rosemary Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I would give this a 5 star as it relates to converting a traditional meatloaf into a healty version...however...my family left bits behind and said it was "strange tasting". I make a lemon rosemary chicken on the grill that we all love so would make my grilled chicken over this in the future.

West African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
Delicious. I added too much peanut butter (I prefer to bite into some peanut bits occ. so used crunchy pb) so will cut back to what the recipe calls for the next time. My goof up made it quite thick. Wonderful flavors.

Spaghetti Squash with Pine Nuts, Sage, and Romano

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I have no idea how I could dislike a dish so much given the other great ratings. I made it exactly as per directions. I didn't even know how to save it. I must have messed up somewhere...but I don't know where.

Quick Gnocchi

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I dislike instant mashed potatoes but love gnocchi. Because of the significant decrease in time required to make this gnocchi it was worth a try even if it failed. But...it didn't fail...it was quick and wonderful. I serve it to the kids drizzled in olive oil, course salt and pepper and grated parmesan. For the adults I make a gorgonzola sauce. We love it and I will NEVER make gnocci from scratch again!!

Mexican Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
We all enjoyed this lasagna. The kids love the taco pie from this site and I thought this looked similar with added nutrition (if that can be said with all of that sour cream :). I will make this again.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
The best crust. Adding spices to the crust isn't neccessary....those can be added to your sauce and other flavors can be added via your toppings. I made this twice when my yeast wasn't active (too old I guess) and everybody loved it as a flat crust too....but whoa look out when you add active yeast....what a huge crust. This easily makes two pizza crusts....nice and chewy if you don't overbake it. People are asking for the recipe....which is a good indicator of a keeper!

Asparagus with Sliced Almonds and Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I would give it about 4 1/2 but the option isn't here I guess. My favorite asparagus is roasted with course salt, pepper and olive oil. This was however very tasty and very easy. My husband loved it and wants it added to our Easter dinner menue.
