Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2014
Awesome! I omit the mushrooms and feta. Bake for about 60 minutes.

Easy Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2014
This was a great, comforting meal. Gabriel even liked it. I did not use any butter. I cooked the onion and canned mushrooms with the ground beef, and then removed the grease. I whisked the flour into the beef broth, then added it to the beef mixture. Lastly, I added the sour cream. Next time I will add salt and more pepper (I added about 22 cranks while cooking). Alternatively, I may add more beef bouillon while keeping the water to 2 cups to add more beef flavor.

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2014
I loved these! They may have sugar, but homemade granola bars are much healthier than store bought ones with preservatives. The only modifications that I made were that I added whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose, I added one stick of butter and three tablespoons of margarine because I didn't have enough butter, and I reduced the chocolate chips to one cup. Next time I will press as firmly as possible since these ones came out crumbly. Other reviewers also suggested increasing the butter and honey to one cup each. It sounds great to add other "toppings" like coconut, raisins, and chopped pecans, walnuts, or almonds. It may also be good to add some flaxseed, wheat germ, or protein powder for extra nutrition.

Chicken Milano

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2014
This was delicious! I made quite a few changes though. I cooked a 13.5 oz box of whole wheat penne pasta in salted water. I then sprinkled two chicken breasts with salt and pepper, and dredged them in whole wheat pastry flour. I cooked them in a pan with 1 Tbsp of butter and 2 Tbsp of olive oil. Once cooked (about 5 minutes per side), I removed them from the pan. I added 1 more Tbsp of butter, 4 cloves of minced garlic, 2 cups of chicken broth, and 1 cup (3 oz bag) of chopped sun-dried tomatoes to the pan. I allowed the tomatoes to soften for about 10 minutes. Next, I added 2 cups of half & half, 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese, and 3 tsp of dried basil. Once the sauce began to thicken, I chopped the chicken and added it to the sauce. I mixed it with the pasta before serving. It takes much longer to make than the recipe claims. From start to finish it took an hour to make.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
I had high hope for these, but I will not make them again. I think I was expecting the chewy texture of a molasses crinkle cookie. I will try that one next time. These were fluffy, doughy cookies. I also expected a stronger molasses and spice taste. The worst part about these cookies was the process of making them. The dough was so wet that I had to put it in the fridge for at least an hour before trying to handle it. Even then it stuck to my hands when trying to roll it. It helped to coat my hands in sugar each time I rolled a new cookie. Finally, they looked nothing like the picture.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
These flattened as they cooked and turned out crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I liked them this way. They tasted great except for the strange lemony aftertaste. I'm not sure, but I think this is caused by the cream of tarter. Other reviewers suggested substituting lemon juice or vinegar for the cream of tarter (substitute 2 tsp of lemon juice or vinegar for 1 tsp cream of tartar), and others recommended omitting it altogether (use 4 tsp baking powder and no baking soda or cream of tartar). If I make these again, then I will use extra cinnamon-sugar for rolling too.

Delicious Egg Salad for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
This was a good basic egg salad recipe. However, I think it needs celery! Also, I used the white onions that I had in my kitchen. BIG mistake! Next time I will use the recommended green onions, or I will use sweet Vidalia. I might try it without additional salt next time.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2013
This recipe was awesome! I doubled all the ingredients for a 48 oz package of ground turkey. I did make a few changes. I didn't have tomato paste so I used equal parts ketchup. I also substituted equal parts BBQ sauce for the hot sauce to keep it from being spicy for the little one. I doubled the number of eggs (in this case, I used 4) to keep it from being too dry. I reduced the salt to 2 tsp and I felt it was plenty salty. My substitutions of ketchup and BBQ sauce may have contributed to the saltiness. Also, I used sea salt which tends to be "saltier". I may reduce it even more next time. As recommended, I cooked it on a cookie sheet covered with aluminum foil. This made clean-up pretty easy and kept the turkey from cooking in its own liquid and becoming soggy. Finally, I formed my meatloaf on the flatter side so that the cooking time wouldn't dramatically increase. In my case, an extra 5 minutes (total of 55 minutes) was perfect!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2013
These satisfied our chocolate craving! They are delicious and chewy cookies. I used 1 cup of chocolate chips instead of 2 cups and I thought it was a nice amount. The batter made exactly 3 dozen medium-sized cookies. I think these would be great with or without the walnuts.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2013
This is delicious! It's a simple meatless meal. I think it's best to layer the eggplant in slices on the bottom and the tomatoes on top. That way the eggplant soaks up the juices and the tomatoes are roasted.

Beezie's Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: May 16, 2013
I did not care for this recipe. Way too much black pepper and chili powder! Like other people said, the beans, rice, and lentils were not even done after cooking in my slow cooker for longer than the recipe said.

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
I loved this! It was surprisingly filling for a light, vegetarian soup. I loved the kale, tomato, and white bean combination. I also think it's genius to puree some of the beans to thicken the soup.

Lemon Piccata Whitefish

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
I made this with fresh rainbow trout. Next time I will use a skinless fish. I omitted the lemon pepper and lemon zest because I didn't have any. I salted and peppered both sides of the fish, coated it in flour, and cooked it in canola oil. The sauce was not thickening at all so I added a little flour to it. I served it with lemon asparagus and brown rice. The sauce was great over all of it.

Honey-Ginger Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2013
I forgot to add the ginger to the marinade. I added 1/2 tsp of the ginger right before baking in the oven, but it was not strong enough. I baked it in the marinade at 325 for 20 minutes. I think grilling would have been better. My major mistake was that I added orange zest to the marinade. BIG MISTAKE! I will try this again but actually follow the recipe.

Roasted Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
This was pretty good. It tasted like chicken and dumpling soup. I don't think both the flour and milk are necessary so next time I will omit one of them or reduce them.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
This was not as good as I was expecting given the raving reviews. I would have liked a more pronounced pumpkin flavor and moistness. There was so much batter that I made one huge loaf and a dozen muffins. I baked the muffins for 40 minutes and the loaf for about 1 hour and 20 minutes. They were all overcooked. If I make this again, then I will reduce the time.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
This was okay, but a little bland. I did make major changes because I didn't have all of the necessary ingredients. I did not have any onions, canned mushrooms, parsley, or chives. I used ground beef instead of top round steak. I used a tablespoon Worcestershire sauce and extra water with three splashes of red wine vinegar instead of white wine. I used a tablespoon of corn starch instead of flour and I used 8 ounces of sour cream instead of 16 ounces. I will try it again, but I will follow the directions more closely.
