Pumpkin Dessert

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2014
This got great reviews from everybody at our BBQ that had this. I went scant on the sugar in the topping and in the pumpkin layer. I think I might have gone a little too scant in the pumpkin layer, so next time I think I'll just put in the normal amount of sugar in the pumpkin and skimp on the topping. Strangely, the next day, it tasted just right. Good hot or cold!

Aunt Norma's Rhubarb Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2014
I got rave reviews about these when I took them to a BBQ. Great way to use up rhubarb from the garden.

Easy Shake and Bake Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2014
I would rate this five stars, but we did makes some changes so I've got to be fair :-) We used all cornflake crumbs instead of flour and I omitted the butter (and greased the baking sheet instead). I didn't miss the butter at all. The chicken was phenomenal! We've already had this twice in the last week.

Chicken Wild Rice Soup I

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2014
I don't think I even added the half and half - this soup is rich and wonderful even without it. Yummy :-)

No Bakes

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2014
No eggs? Sweet tooth? No problem! This recipe is perfect for whipping up a quick treat when you're in a hurry. I sometimes add a little more peanut butter, but other than that, it's perfect.

Cheesecake Lemon Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2014
If lemon bars and cheesecake got together and had a baby, that's what this would be. What a great way to blend two of my favorite desserts! Perfect as is. Well, I might add just a smidge more zest. Five stars from me and the DH.

Sensei's Crusty Crumbled Blue Cheese Steak Topping

Reviewed: May 15, 2014
This is amazing. It's an awesome, ritzy taste you can make in under 30 minutes.

Cheesecake Brownies

Reviewed: May 15, 2014
These were good, but not amazing. Not sure what I would change, but they just didn't taste very cheesecake-y.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: May 1, 2014
Oh my goodness. This is the best salad ever. No, really. If you think it sounds iffy, just give it a try. You'll have it twice this week, I promise. The only slight tweaks I might recommend would be dijon mustard (normal yellow is a teensy bit overpowering for the vinaigrette), and we like to use maple syrup to carmelize the nuts, but it's still good with the plain white sugar too. Thanks for the recipe - AMAZING!!!!

Jeanie's Falafel

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2014
These were delectable. The only adjustment I made was to add an egg to hold it together, which was definitely necessary since I used beans I cooked from dry rather than canned. My only complaint is that the recipe doesn't make more!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2013
I was surprised at how good this was. Sort of like chili, but not. Great on a cold night.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2013
This is an awesome way to mix up your standard veggie side dish. Loved the balsamic taste to it. I was out of rosemary and thyme, so I improvised and used montreal steak seasoning, basil, parsley, and oregano, although I am sure it would be better as it's written originally. I will definitely use this again. Thanks!

Naan

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
I'm not going to vouch for how authentic this is, but it sure tastes good. It is a little on the sweet side, and I think next time I make it I'll probably cut the sugar by 2 T or so (especially if you're going to add garlic or something), but this stuff practically didn't make it to the table - we ate it coming off the grill pan. My 1 1/2 year old daughter now knows how to say "Naan."

Broccoli Cheese Soup VI

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
I'll be honest - I didn't measure anything in this recipe, and I used it mostly for inspiration, so take my opinion with a grain of salt (pun intended). I thought it was pretty good, but I know I put in a little more cheese than it called for. I used extra sharp cheddar, and I think that helped carry the cheesy flavor. I also added a little low-sodium soy and a smidgen of garlic powder for kick. I'll bet Worcestershire would work too. I used 2 C skim milk instead of the water and half and half, and I thickened it with some instant potatoes. Came out pretty thick, but I liked it. I also used real onion instead of dried. I'll definitely be making this again for another chilly fall day. Or when I need my kids to eat their broccoli.

Kohlrabi Slaw

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
I had never had kohlrabi before, but this was great. Our dinner guest had a hearty second helping, and he'd never had it before either. We used normal vinegar and omitted the celery seed, but it was fine without. I think apple cider vinegar would definitely add a little something though.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
Our family gave this 5 stars. I didn't find that it required the whole cooking time in the oven, but my oven runs hot. The only change we made was we used cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom, because that's what we had on hand. I'm sure it would taste great with the mushroom too.

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2012
This is a fabulous banana bread recipe. I like that it doesn't call for too much sweetener. I used brown sugar instead of honey and omitted the nuts (I was out of both), but I'm sure it would be fabulous that way. I took the advice of others and used 3 bananas and added cinnamon. I made them into muffins so they'd cook faster. Spot on - this was very good. (I know I made a lot of adjustments, but I'd bet the recipe would be great without them too).

Laura's Unbelievable Chicken and Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2012
This is now one of my go-to recipes. I have made changes here and there depending on what's in my fridge at the time. I've used normal tomatoes (they work just as well as cherry), and if I need the sauce to go further, I add cream of chicken, cream of mushroom, sour cream, or plain yogurt. I also like to throw in onions and mushrooms. As several other viewers suggested, this recipe is quite plain as it stands. It really does need some garlic at least. I like to add fresh basil if I've got it, as well as oregano and pepper. I'd give it a 3 without the herbs and spices and a 5 with them.

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
I didn't use a bread machine (don't have one). My modifications: used all very fine whole wheat flour and added about 1.5 Tbs vital wheat gluten. Nice, fluffy texture, which is saying something for all whole wheat bread. I baked it at about 375 for about 40 min.

Runzas (meat pies)

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
Fabulous. Ironically, I live in Nebraska but have never had the restaurant version of these. Now I know I don't need to! These are pretty darn easy to make. I adjusted the filling (out of cabbage), and I used oil instead of shortening, but I think you could fill them with chopped chicken, and/or other veggies and they'd be awesome. As another reviewer suggested, some kind of gravy with the filling would be nice though. But not completely necessary. The Russians make a similar dish called peroshki, and the Argentines have empanadas, and they're filled with all sorts of stuff. I think just about every culture has some rendition of these.
