Cream Cheese Pound Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
I made this this past weekend for company and it was delicious. I made the following changes: (1) added one tablespoon of lemon juice, (2) zested half of a small lemon into the mix, (3) only put 1/4 teaspoon of almond extract, (4) used cinnamon instead of nutmeg and next time i would probably omit both since i didn't notice a difference. almond extract is extremely strong and i just didn't want to overpower the cake. turns out the 1/4 teaspoon was enough for us. next time, i might only bake it for 70 minutes though because the edges were a little brown at 80; cake was still moist though. i topped this with a basic vanilla glaze but next time i think i will just make a fresh whipped cream to top it. and there WILL be a next time. i'm so happy i tried this even though there aren't 2,000 reviews for it=) it's great!

Bulgur Wheat with Dried Cranberries

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
This was tasty but pretty basic. I used half of a bouillon cube to avoid over salting. I also added some two tablespoons of flax seeds when I mixed in cranberries, added a little crunch and some health benefits;) Some things I'd try next time - 1. Chopping the cranberries up a little, 2. Trying this with bacon or mushrooms (although I'd cook those things first and then add bulgur and water), 3. Adding some spices, I could see butternut squash chopped up with cranberries and some cinnamon; or oregano with mushrooms.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
Very very good. and very very easy. i doubled the amount of quinoa (wanted to finish it up) and used 15 oz of beans but doubled the rest of the things. i didn't have corn but i didn't miss. i thought this was really tasty - added a little sour cream and ate it on its own. could see putting this in a wrap with some meat, adding some fresh red onion and tomato and serving cold...many possibilities!

Panna Cotta

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
So easy and so delicious. I think that it could do with a little less sugar and considering how rich and decadent heavy cream can be, using a less fatty milk would probably also be tasty. I followed the recipe 'as-is' and it set just fine for me and came out great. i used a muffin tin since i didn't have ramekins and then just cut around the edges and moved around in warm water a little bit. i will say - ramekins would make the presentation party prettier so i am going to buy.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
Really delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, put my cookies on the second to top rack and they cracked and crinkled perfectly. they are great, they are fudgy, tasty. i will make these again and again. next time, i'd go with either toasted nuts or granulated sugar instead of the powdered sugar. thank you!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Eh - I'd rather live (how funny am I - get it?). Anyway, in my opinion, I prefer Aunt Blanche's Blueberry Muffins (posted on this site). Also, these muffins were a bit more work with the crumb topping (which did not turn out great for me because the butter was too soft and so i had this glaze-type concoction instead of a crumb consistency). I realize this is a matter of taste and the people at my office really liked them . I could see how this is the recipe people are looking for but it's not for me.

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Vegetables

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
Good grief was this good! Of course I made changes to suit my tastes (if you don't like reviewers that do that then don't read any further). Here are my changes: 1) i sauteed some garlic in olive oil, seasoned the turkey breast with red pepper, oregano, basil, parmesan cheese, salt and pepper and then put the turkey in the garlic/olive oil combo; 2) i used 2 zucchinis, an 8oz container of mushrooms and probably a good bit more spinach since it wilts so much; 3) i made my own marinara sauce (garlic and olive oil sauteed, can of crushed tomatoes added, oregano and basil). After following the rest of the directions as written I added almost all of my marinara sauce (15 oz or so) to the mixture then i put in about a quarter of cup of mozzarella and prob 2 tbsps of parmesan; stuffed the pre-baked peppers, topped with marinara and put them back in. With 5 minutes to go - I added shredded mozzarella to the tops of each. I know this would have been good without the cheese but I was craving it! All in all, this is a fantastic idea/recipe - i will make again. The only thing I will do differently is bake the peppers a bit more - they were a little too crunchy for my tastes. Otherwise - A+++.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2010
As everyone says, this is a great recipe. I also mash the bananas. I have made this a few times - this most recent time, I mashed ripe figs in with the bananas and then with 15 minutes left, i pressed some sliced figs into the top of the bread and drizzled with honey. It looks great!! I can't wait to eat it!

Banana Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
The overall banana flavor was very good. I would have preferred without oats. If I make these again, I will use some chopped walnuts instead of oats (the oat is a pain to chew - I used steel cut, so it could be my mistake but I have baked with these before and they have been fine). Also - these muffins were almost overdone for me in 15 mins (around the edges is a little dry). I would say to watch very closely! All in all, good banana flavor, looked very good - just not a big fan of the oat situation and i feel the baking time was a bit.

White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2009
i loved this. i think the combination of the cinnamon and cumin are what make the flavor. the adjustments i made are as follows (i know everyone gets worked up about reviewing a recipe after you modified it but here i go): 1. i sauteed the onions and garlic and in a tablespoon of bacon fat since i had some on hand. after 2 mins of cooking on their own, i added the turkey. 2. i halved the cinnamon and cheese. 3. i only used 2 cups of chicken broth. 4. i didn't mash any of the beans - next time i would puree, i think it would make the consistency a little thicker. this was delicious - make it, you won't be sorry. mmm!

Aunt Blanche's Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2009
Make this recipe. You will not be disappointed. The consistency of the muffin is so delicious - fluffy, the top gets perfectly crunchy. THe batter is delicious and I think that you could do a lot of fun things with it such as subsituting chocolate chips for the blueberries or flaked coconut and dried cranberries. I doubled the recipe and we are gobbling them up. Delicious! My mom (who is great baker) said that I took it to a whole new level with these muffins and that we'd better write the recipe down so that we make sure not to lose it:)

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
Don't rate this recipe until you let the dip sit over night! It is very very good after a few good hours in the fridge - i wasn't that impressed as soon as i finished making this last night. i could really only taste the tahini, i thought it was blend and that the flavors didn't mesh well. this morning - well, i had to really hold myself back from eating half the bowl. it was really good, the flavors really came together and the consistency was just right. really tasty - it didn't have as much of a smokey flavor as some baba ghanoush recipes but i was okay with that - delicious!

Real Hummus

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
Really tasty. If ou are going to add more garlic, i would advise you to roast it. Raw garlic can be "hot" and overpowering (and this is coming from a true garlic lover). I put two cloves of raw garlic in this at first and i had to double the amount of chickpeas just to avoid burning my tongue when i ate it. so i would say to be careful with the garlic. use 1 clove and then taste the hummus before deciding to double up. However, the recipe as is - just delicious. I will make it again in a heartbeat. Also - there is recipe for tahini cookies on here that makes good use of the jar of tahini you will have sitting around:) Thanks very much!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2009
I made these sunday night - absolutely delicious. they are heavy on the oats though so I am really glad I did half the dough with 1/2 c of raising and the other half with 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips and some raisins. I brought them to the office and everyone raved about them. I still have a few left and am trying ever so hard to not eat them for breakfast. Follow this recipe as is and add some raisins- you will love it. Oh - I kept my cookies in little balls rather than flattening before baking - still soft two days later! Great recipe!

Tahini Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
i made this recipe as is and i thought it was pretty tasty - oh - i substituted almonds for the walnuts and added a small bit of vanilla extract. lastly, i had to use nutmeg - i didn't have cinnamon. but these are small changes. i was particularly impressed with the consistency of the cookie. very moist, almost buttery. the next time i make this i am going to add a little brown sugar, raisins and a little more oatmeal. tahini has a pretty strong flavor so i think you have to keep that in mind as you make these and not be afraid to add a variety of things to the mix to make the overall flavor a little more complex and balanced. great recipe though - i would definitely make these again. thank you.

Heavenly Blueberry Smoothie

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
very good - a few changes but i think recipe is tasty as it is - 1) froze yogurt in an ice cube tray and used 3 cubes rather, 2) added 5 regular ice cubes to the mixture as well, 3) used 1/3 cup of thinly sliced organic, thawed banana, 1/3 cup of fresh organic strawberries and 1/3 cup of frozen blueberries/blackberries. tastes just like the jamba juice bright eyed and blueberry smoothie (although i would use a little less ice next time to avoid watering down flavor).

Baked Spaghetti Squash Lasagna Style

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2009
very good. the next time i do this, i am going to mix the squash and sauce together and then maybe layer a little more sauce once in the shells because i found it was a little dry. i used sauce i had on hand in the freezer and just topped with mozzarella. it was really tasty - i would make this again.
