Blueberries n' Cheese Squares

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2015
All the yumminess of cheesecake, but light enough to be able to go back for more! I make this recipe every summer with my own fresh blueberry filling instead canned. I usually buy a prepared graham cracker crust. Today I am trying the recipe with Nilla Wafer cookies and adding some strawberries with the blueberries.

Rhubarb and Raspberry Chocolate Macadamia Nut Crumble

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2015
I made this recipe today for Father's Day. My Dad and the rest of the family loved it! The only reason I gave this a four star review was that directions could use some improvement and the bake time was far too long. First I would NOT recommend stirring your raspberries. Next time I make this, I will combine the white sugar mix first, coat the rhubarb and then add the raspberries. Secondly, my food processor didn't do so well with the crumb mixture. Even though I cut the butter into smaller squares, I ended up with chunks of butter dusted with "dough". Next time I will chop the nuts (I chose hazelnuts) first, cut the butter into small cubes, and then add the dry ingredients & chips. Lastly, I skipped the 10 minutes bake step and only cooked it for 45 minutes. The rhubarb was VERY soft. Once it was cool enough to eat, I could no longer see any raspberries and there were only a few chunks of rhubarb. Oven temperatures vary, so I would recommend checking the crumble so it doesn't over cook. Overall a delicious recipe served with vanilla ice cream (just sweet enough to contrast with the tart fruit). I especially loved the chocolate!

Balsamic Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2014
I usually eat Brussels Sprouts with bacon, but wanted something different and thought I would give this a try. Didn't have any balsamic vinegar, so I subbed apple cider vinegar & sugar- and omitted the butter. Couldn't have been more pleased! Thanks for an awesome and healthier recipe!

Elderberry Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2014
Made this recipe with a few changes. Pureed the apple (honeycrisp) and added a bit of cinnamon. Not sure if the elderberries that grow wild in Oregon are different, but this had a really sour taste even after adding extra sugar. Also seemed like there was too much water in the recipe? Lastly, if I make this again I would try to find a way to remove the seeds. If it weren't for the seeds this would have been a three star.

Creamy Avocado Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 31, 2014
Good basic recipe, made better when I made the following changes: Used half sour cream, half mayo and cut back on the pepper. Also chopped the chicken into bite size pieces and stirred the dressing in. Was so tasty that I forgot to add the avocado!

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2014
I can not find a good honey mustard dressing in the store, and this recipe is exactly what I have been looking for! As with all recipes, I make a few adjustments here and there. I use a mix of ground mustard and regular mustard and add a bit of garlic powder. It never quite tastes the same twice, but it's always excellent!

Poppy Seed Tea Cakes

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
I had planned on making poppy seed bread, but found this recipe instead and it looked super easy and tasty!. It has a lovely delicate flavor, but bland and dry be comparison to what I was expecting. Not sure if I was using salted, or unsalted butter, that may have made a difference. Additionally I added 1 tsp of almond extract, but still felt bland. I think I over cooked them as well, as cooking time always takes longer on stoneware. Enjoyed this recipe a lot, and will be making again!

Cajun Potato Wedges

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
I used yukon gold potatoes and microwaved for 2 minutes prior to cutting wedges as suggested by others. While they smelled delicious cooking, they felt like they were missing a little something. Next time I will try using garlic powder and extra salt?

Ginger Orange Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2014
Came across this recipe while looking for something that DIDN'T have bacon in it. I really liked the ginger orange combination and the sweet cranberries. However, I personally felt that the ginger was a little over-powering.

Hawaiian Bruddah Potato Mac (Macaroni) Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
Made this recipe last night for dinner tonight, with a few changes based on what I had in the kitchen and personal preferences. For starters I had no macaroni, so it was all potato. Nor did I have celery seed, so I had to use celery salt instead and omitted the salt to taste. Made the recipe otherwise as listed (including the curry correction) and it was just a little bland. So I added a little extra seasonings, and added garlic powder as well. Also, added some sweet pickles and juice. Tonight it was delicious!! My husband rarely likes potato salad and had two giant helpings- so you know it was good!

Zucchini Soup with Curry Spices

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2013
SO Easy to make and very tasty. I love the way the spices combine in a mild yet surprisingly spicy way. Next time I will omit the cayenne as it was just too much for me.
