Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2008
These were absolutely perfect and cake-like...Brought them to work and they disappeared! Recipe yields plenty of medium-sized cookies. Slight alteration: Added a little extra vanilla and cinnamon.(Loved them!!!)

Homestyle Turkey, the Michigander Way

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
Ive never made a whole turkey, and I decided to use this recipe...And boy was I glad I did! It was absolutely perfect. The only slight alterations I made were 1)I used a little more butter than it called for and buttered the whole bird, as well poured some into the breast meat. (I did this buy holding the bird upright and pouring melted butter into the space between the skin and breast). 2)I used chicken broth instead of bouillon diluted with warm water. And 3)I added a little dry vermouth to the cavity as well as the broth, and finally, 4) I chopped a whole red onion, some celery, and fresh herbs and put them into the cavity. I believe the fresh herbs defintely made a big difference.

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
Made this on a chilly, rainy day and it was so good my eyes watered. I gave some to my sister in law who is major soup fan, and she said it was probably the best soup she's ever had. Even my picky husband had a heaping bowl of it.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
This absolutely wonderful...I didnt have taco seasoning, but used the advice of another reviewer and added spices normally in taco seasong individually(paprika, blakc pepper, etc.) Also, I used "spicy" chili beans instead. I cooked in slow cooker for abour 6 hours, shredded chicken, and cooked for another 2-3 hours.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Great recipe! I added about 1/2 a can of tomato/chile mix and it turned out wonderful. My husband (who wont even eat brown rice) asked for seconds! Also makes a perfect stuffing for mushroom caps!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
i was skeptical about this recipe, but it was a huge hit at a Super Bowl party this weekend! :)Dont judge it by the way it tastes before baking! I followed the advice of another reviewer and topped it with Panko crumbs and grated parmesan before baking. YUM!!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
Ive made this recipe a few times now, and never rated it. Its absolutely moist, delicious, and moist! Definetely even better the next day. Make sure you dont cover too tightly though...Allow it some breathing room. (I lightly wrap mine in foil and keep inside microwave or on counter). Otherwise, it will turn into a dense,pumpkin log!

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2009
I've made these twice now, and I cant seem to get them right. They taste delicious, but they turn out completely flat!! Not sure what I am doing wrong.

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2009
I made this recipe with a few slight alterations/substitutions, and it turned out great...I didnt have garbanzo beans on hand, so I used Navy beans. I also did not have canellini beans, so those were just omitted. Also, instead of all water, I substituted some with chicken broth. Other than that, I followed the recipe. I found that the lentils were ready in about 45 minutes over medium-low heat, and felt that it didnt need to be blended at all. BTW- Dont spend big $$ on buying cardamom unless you plan on using it a lot. (This spice is usually already found in Garam Masala.) I will likely try this again, but with some nice Naan bread! :)

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2009
This recipe was delicious and easy to make...I used two small squashes and it yielded enough for two. Next time I will make atleast 3, that way I have at least some leftovers!

Lamb Tagine

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
Amazing recipe! I used all the ingredients, with the exception of the pinch of saffron, as I didnt have any, and neither did the grocery store.:( But it still turned out absolutely delicious. I made the following slight changes: Threw everything in the slow cooker and set on low for about 10 hours, tossed in some fresh basil and a dash of red wine towards the end of the cooking process, and used a bit of "Wondra" flour instead of cornstarch to thicken it up a bit. I also threw some diced potatoes along with the lamb and everything turned out beautifully. Served it with Curried Brown rice.AWESOME!

Nanny's Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
I think this was a great "base" recipe. I ended up adding red wine, fresh basil,sauteed onions, and oregano. With those additions, it was a delicious, savory sauce and I plan to never buy jarred spaghetti sauce again!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Great recipe, but I believe that had I stuck to the recipe word for word, it would have been a little bland...I doubled the recipe, (used 3 eggs, not 4 though), added a dash of vanilla extract, and a few dashes of pumpkin pie spice. I made these for my husband's co-workers. Unfortnately, I only got to keep 2 for myself! :)

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2009
I made this chili for my husbands co-workers (all men) for a lunch-time pot-luck. Needless to say, by 8:45am, my husband called to inform me it was all gone and they were asking for more!! Great recipe!
