Best Baked French Fries

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2013
I LOVE THESE! You must realize that no baked fry will ever be a fried fry, so don't expect that. These are exceptional compared to other baked fries I've tried from this site and this is now my go to recipe for fries. The little bit of sugar is a must so don't skip it! I follow this recipe exact every time, (and even skip the letting it marinade step when in a time crunch), and they are always all gone at dinner time. Start early though, because this is not FAST FOOD... Between seasoning, chopping, and baking, they do take quite awhile to make.

Cherry Tomato Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
Ok, I have tried many different salad ideas from this website, and this one takes the cake! I think because I used homegrown corn, tomatoes, and cucumbers, it had such a wonderfully sweet intensity. I stuck to the exact recipe and there really is no reason to change a thing! My only recommendation is to go to a farmers market if you don't have your own garden and buy fresh local produce instead of buying the tasteless tomatoes and corn at the grocery store.

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
A very good pancake. I recommend using less sugar and more banana. I liked it best with an additional egg, some flax, and chopped strawberries in the mix. It has a subtle oatty flavor, which I really enjoyed.

Savory Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2009
A++++++... I can't say enough about how good this recipe is! I hate it when sweet potatoes are manipulated into sugary dishes, when they are perfectly sweet without making them taste like candy. This dish compliments the natural sweet potatoe soooo well! I had tri-colored sweet peppers, so I used them all to add color. I used less mayo and purposely overcooked 1/3 of the potatoe until mushy so it made it very rich and moist when I mixed it up. Tabasco sauce worked well for the pepper sauce too! Tasted even better the next day.... Thank you, thank you, thank you Marlen!!!

Byrdhouse Blistered Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2008
I made a huge dinner for my family using what is in the garden and this was the quickest and easiest thing I made! It was their favorite!.. (besides dessert of course). I wished I would've just made these! Being a huge fan of garlic, I added a bunch of it and it was delightful! Also, you're instructions were great and the tomatoes blistered pefectly! THANKS

Farmer's Market Vegetarian Quesadillas

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2009
Very good! I do these on the grill as well. Just wrag veggies in foil and when they are close to done, throw the wrap on the grill until browned on both sides. As stated by others, all veggies will do. Homemade tortillas are always the best, but this is a great speedy recipe.

Pioneer Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
Wow wow wow... such a great base recipe. I had no eggs and my husband was begging for oatmeal raisin cookies. Found this and used oil instead of butter, 1/2 sugar 1/2 agave, more oats less flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, dash salt, almond extract and vanilla extract and holy cow the house smells amazing and my hubby is killing the whole plate of em'! THANKS.

Veggies with Cheese Gravy

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2009
This had such common ingredients for my household, that I had to give it a whirl! The soymilk scared me, but it came out with great results! I doubled the gravy mix, (necessary), and thickened it with flour, then served it over toast for breakfast. I even added extra veggies I hade left over, (green beans & onions), YUM!

Maureen's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I gotta be another addition to the 5 stars! It was interesting because I made it the same day my Dad made chili, and although they look similar, the tastes were so different!

The Ultimate Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2009
Yum! I omitted the pepperoni and added in artichokes and extra garlic! To make it wetter, I put in some of the olive juice and artichoke juice. Light and delish!

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
It seemed like a lot more work then the usual ole' boiling method. The taste was there, but I don't think it surpassed boiled, buttered, and salted corn on the cob. I do love corn no matter which way you cook it!

Bacon Cheddar Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
Let's see... bacon and cheese... I think that combo would make anything 5 stars! This was no exception, it was delicious! I am overwhelmed with jalapenos in my garden right now, so it was a great way to use up my abundance. Also, unless you want "soft" bacon, cook it a little bit before hand. I like mine with a little crunch!

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2009
I always screw bread up, but this turned out just the way I wanted it... I made half a batch, (exactly as the recipe says to make it) and spread it thin on a cookie sheet and baked it for about 15 minutes, (it was like a flatbread), then cut it into sandwich size pieces and made grilled paninis with sundried tomatoes, mozzarella, arugala, avocado, red bell peppers, and the dressing from (California Grilled Veggie Sandwich). My husband and I agreed, it is the best sandwich we've EVER had! 100 stars!

Salmon Rosemary Burgers

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2009
WOW! I wasn't expecting these to be quite this good! I used canned salmon and this still far exceeded my expectations! I used mayo instead of horseradish, and added a little extra dijon/mayo to my mix since canned salmon is a little dry. It reminded me a little of crabcakes, so it would be great even without the bun!

Oatmeal Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2008
This is my favorite recipe website... but my beef is "PEOPLE NEED TO GIVE THE ORIGINAL A CHANCE!" I see everyone changing this and that before they even try the REAL DEAL! So, this is one of those recipes that doesn't need "fixed" or "altered". They are only chewy when warm, but they always taste great!

Minted Marinated Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2008
Maybe it was the type of mint I used, but this recipe just wasn't it for me. I found the mint to be overwhelming and it just wasn't what I was expecting. I was just trying to use up some zucchini so it's no great loss.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2013
So so SO good... I just used torta bread sliced in half and used A LOT of basil since my garden is going off and it was perfect perfect perfect!!! I also used all kinds of tomatoes that I had been given from a friend, (cherry, beefsteak, etc.), and it was still excellent. I agree with all of "Nicole's" suggestions, (she is the top review at this point), which do not actually "alter" the recipe... but are just words of advice. Incredible! I will make this every time I am overloaded with tomatoes.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2012
My husband and I LOVE this recipe and I make it at least once a month and for potlucks and bar-b-ques. We live in Hawaii, so this tabbouleh is refreshing for us all year. Hubby makes sure to request it if I don't make it soon enough. I NEVER measure any of the ingredients, I just do it to taste.... Plenty of lemon and a little more salt. YUM!

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2012
Grilled, simmered in a pan with o.o. and balsamic, or baked.. no matter which way you cook these babies, they are JUICY and DELICIOUS. I also add onion and make a garlic aioli sauce to spread on them. Fabulous!

Crispy Cucumbers and Tomatoes in Dill Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
Good. I like a light salad but I think perhaps there was too much cider vinegar for me... I would like to maybe half with balsamic next time. Still nice, just not perfected with recipe as is.
