Mediterranean Breakfast Quinoa

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
This is absolutely delish!!! A definite keeper. My fam is accustomed to grains, so I cut the honey in 1/2 & it was plenty sweet for our tastes. What a healthy, delightful way to eat the most important meal of the day. I would give this 10 stars if I could. The nutty, but sweet flavor is great! Thanx, Yasi! :-)

Slow-Cooked Carolina Beef Brisket

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
This is sooooo good! I LOVED it. The gravy becomes nice & brown & delicious. The only thing I changed was I added a couple of chipotle peppers (in adobo sauce) b/c I had them left over from a previous recipe. We like a little "spice." :-) Try it! You will not be disappointed! So easy too.

Blueberry Gingerbread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2010
Very tasty, light, fluffy cake. I didn't have buttermilk on hand, so I soured milk (~ 1 tsp lemon juice/1 C. milk) & it turned out perfect. Next time, since I love spicy gingerbread, I'll had more molasses & maybe 3/4 tsp ginger. But, that's personal taste. This is a great recipe my family loved. I'm enjoying it w/ coffee this AM too. Thanks JO!

Spicy Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2010
YUM!!!! This is delicious w/ just the right amt of "spice." I had previously cooked the black beans, so used 8 C water vs the 10 C called for. Also, since I was busy, I put all ingred. in the crockpot & let it simmer away on low. I typically blend 1/2 of my soup(s) w/ an infusion blender to thicken, but I would NOT recommend that w/ this recipe b/c you'll get a grainy texture (I tried it). Also, I might suggest one remember that black beans are firm & need alot of soak/simmer time. I soaked mine overnight & also simmered for several hours b/c I like them on softer side. THANX Angchick. This is a definite keeper!

Ghirardelli® Chocolate Saltine Toffee

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2010
YUM! This tastes like my fav toffee candy bar. I followed the recipe exactly. It really does take the 20 min cook time for the toffee (for some reason I thought it would reach temp sooner;nope :}). I used a 2.5 qt saucepan b/c the (hot) toffee swells during cooking. Get those almonds on quickly so they don't fall off!

Linguine with Clam Sauce and Baby Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2008
I LOVE this recipe. Better than what I've had in restaurants. Followed advise of another & reduced bouillon to 2 (cuz I'm not crazy about salty stuff). Next time might add a clove or 2 more garlic. This is a great recipe. Wonderful the next day. Thanks a bunch!

Blueberry Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2013
This is a delicious, tender banana bread. I did not add baking powder & it rose nicely. The bread is light & not dense @ all. The 3 small loaves are apparently the mini-loaf size. I made one 8" loaf & one mini loaf. I added 1/2 tsp cinnamon & about 1/4 tsp nutmeg & some toasted walnuts b/c I love those in sweet bread. I'm not sure how long I baked the 8" loaf since I didn't time it. I think around 50 min. I will definitely make this again. The subtle tartness of the blueberries & the sweet bread are a wonderful contrast.

Strawberry Lassi

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2008
I LOVED this recipe. Since I am a huge yogurt fan (love the tartness of yogurt), I'd cut the sugar to 1 TBSP. But, that is totally personal peference, understanding many aren't crazy about tart drinks like me. Thanks for sharing Radhika. A keeper for me!

Peanut Butter Banana Protein Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2011
My family really liked these. They're not sweet, but thats obviously not the intent of this healthy snack. If you prefer a sweet bar, I'd suggest adding some raisins or dried fruit; cheeries, or cranberries would be tasty! Mine were nice & soft w/ perfect texture. Perhaps the other rater who indicated hers were crumbly spread them too thin? Thanx "So NumberNine!"

Tortilla Beef Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
"As good as the restaurant (we just ate at)," claimed the fam. We like spice, so I added a few chilis in adobo sauce to salsa. As a previous reviewer suggested, I eliminated the chips on the bottom (figured they'd just be soggy) & instead put a can of pinto beans on bottom. I added chili powder to sauce & corn to meat after browning. I topped with sliced jalepeno's & black olives. As recipe suggests, I put LOTS of chips on the top & they added a wonderful crunch & flavor. Great recipe Kim (even though I chg'd a bit, it's terrific & so easy). A KEEPER!

Champagne Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
This is sooo yummy! I usu try recipes as is 1st, but decided to try other suggestions 1st since only c/o seemed to be that it's bland. I added garlic powder & smoked paprika to flour. Then sauteed chicken. Removed ck & added minced onion & garlic. Then, deglazed pan w/champagne (eye-balled amt). Added chicken back to pan & simmered in heavy cream. It needed a bit more S & P. This is an elegant enuf dish for company, VERY tasty & easy! A definite keeper!! Thanx, Barbara.

Fruity Bundt Cake

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I have banana trees, so I've tried alot of BB recipes. This is very moist & delicious. I didn't think it was dry @ all as some suggested. I made it exactly as recipe dictates. Next time I would add nutmeg to the batter & I'll double the pecan layer; personal preference. But, it's great as is! The texture is light. Thanx, Pam!

Summer Squash Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
This is a great way to use yellow squash, but it's a bit too sweet for my taste. However my husband, who has a huge sweet tooth, thought it was fine, as is. For my taste, I would cut down the sugar to 1 1/2 C. next time. It made 1 8" loaf & 2 mini-loaves. The cooking time was a bit longer (I lost track of how much-sorry). I used the full amt of nutmeg, & cinnamon; otherwise I suspect it'd be too bland? I did NOT peel the squash as 1 reviewer suggested.

Indonesian Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
My family loved this recipe. I cooked it in the crockpot on low & the meat was infused with the delicious marinade flavors. This is a definite keeper. Very easy. Very flavorful.

Blueberry Flax Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2008
These are terrific! I made them just like the recipe & they turned out great. I don't feel so guilty now eating pancakes! Another little tip to help eliminate the guilt factor too is to put the syrup on your plate & dip the pancakes into it vs pouring over. You'll use much less syrup that way ;-) Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Coriander Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
A TASTY & easy way to prepare salmon. I doubled the spices cuz I tend toward alot of flavor & seared the fish over med-high heat. In addition, I deglazed w/about 1 C of white wine & then added the juice & hot sauce(after sauteing the garlic slightly. That made a nice "gravy." Thanx Nancy!!

This was great! Not only the colors & nutritional value, but the sweet/tangy dressing was delicious. A great change from the typical salad, utilizing summer's best gifts!
