Mashed Potato Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
Very good! This is the first time I baked them. Usually I fry them in a pan. I definitely prefer baking. Only change was that I scooped 1/2 a cake onto the sheet, made a little well, sprinkled a little mozzarella cheese, and then scooped the other 1/2 on top for a cheesy surprise in the middle.

Becky's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that it is much too salty as written. 1/2 the salt (or none at all) and it gets 5 stars. I also used half and half to cut down on some of the fat.

Lazy Perogies

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
I wouldn't dare attempt traditional pierogies, but this is the perfect substitute. NOT healthy, but oh so good. My husband (who grew up on polish food) loves it.

Baked Falafel

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
This is the first time I've ever made falafel and I don't need to search any further for other recipes. Very good and so easy. I just threw everything in the food processor. Didn't even bother squeezing the onion. I didn't have coriander so I just added a dash of curry powder for the heck of it. They were a bit mushy and had to handle them carefully until I got them into the skillet. I didn't bother with the oven. 5 min. on each side in the skillet. and they were nice and crispy on the outside. Served in pita pockets with Tabbouleh III (from this site) and Tzatziki (combination of Tzatziki Sauce I and II from this site) and was very happy with the results.

Pan de Muertos (Mexican Bread of the Dead)

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
I made this for my students when we were learning about Day of the Dead. I made it in the bread machine and it came out fine. The orange and anise flavor comes through well. Must eat it quickly though as it gets stale soon. I made 2 batches and the day old one was not even close to being good.

Pumpkin Pancakes with Nutmeg Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
These were great! I did not make the topping. Increased the spices just a bit and added pecans into the batter. The flavors were wonderful and the pumpkin flavor came through just right.

Turkey Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
5 stars with changes. I followed the recipe except adding my own combination of veggies. Potatoes, corn, carrots, celery, and onion to total 2 C. I did not cook anything before putting it in the pie and it came out fine. Just chop everything small enough.

Slow Cooker Turkey Breast

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Such an easy way to make turkey. I wouldn't make it any other way. Yes, I agree with earlier reviewers that it doesn't exactly look appealing when it's done, but if you put it under the broiler for a couple of minutes, problem is solved!

No-Cream Pasta Primavera

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
Excellent way to use those fresh summer veggies. Too bad it heats up the kitchen so much on those hot summer days roasting those veggies! Changes: no asparagus, 2 extra cloves garlic, no lemon zest, added some browned sausage, and used 1/2 the pasta because it makes sooo much and I wanted it healthier and veggie heavy.

Fruit and Nut Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2008
I love that there is so much apple in the recipe. Turns out more like a bunch of apples and nuts held together by a little bit of muffin. I replaced the oil with margarine and it came out fine.

Tasty snack. Make sure you use a quality ranch mix.

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
I was looking for a tahini-free, easy hummus and this is it! Not the same as the local mediterranian restaurant, but a good substitute. The versions are endless too! Throw in some roasted red pepper, or sundried tomato.

Cheesy Pork Chops with Spicy Apples

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
My favorite way to eat pork chops. I love the apple, onion, and cheddar combination. When I made them the first time, I had way more apple/onion mixture that I prefer. Maybe my apple and onion were too big? I'd cut down on the toppings or throw in an extra chop. Oh, and the red pepper flakes are vital!

Doesn't get easier than this. Just like my mom used to make in the 70's

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Easy! And a great way to use leftover mashed potatoes. Even better if you top with some shredded cheddar near the end.

Stuffed Blueberry Toast

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Very nice, but I make some alterations to meet my preferences. I don't like a lot of filling so I get 2 extra "sandwiches" out of this recipe. Also, one more egg and less milk in the dipping mixture. The almonds and lemon juice are an important and delicious part!

Sun-dried Tomatoes I

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2014
Have used this recipe several times over the past few years. From reading the reviews, the bake times vary quite a bit. I think it's many factors. Size of tomatoes, how well you cleaned out the pulp, how small you cut them, how many are in the oven at a time (lots of humidity builds up), convection or not. When I have a busy schedule, I do these overnight. Set the alarm for once or twice in the night and they are usually ready by the morning.

Sweet Potato Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
Yummy! I did make some changes though. 1/4 C O.J. instead of zest (didn't have any). Heavy on the sweet potato, oil, and applesauce. And reduced white sugar by 1/2 C. Also required little over an hour of bake time.

P.J.'s Fresh Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
4 stars only because as written, it is not quite to my liking. I used only 1/2 tomato, cucumber, pepper, and zucchini. I put in very little onion. I like my corn salad to be mainly corn. I also added garlic salt, pepper, and basil. Delicious!

Bubble Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2010
Love the ease and flexibility of this recipe. Throw whatever pizza toppings you want in it. It did come out a bit doughy for me (thus 4 stars), so I think I would either bake the biscuits some before adding the rest of the stuff or leave the whole thing in an extra 10 minutes.
