Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
These cookies are absolutely delicious. I used all butter (instead of half butter / half shortening) because I think shortening in cookies, cakes, and icing is a crime! The cookies were soft, chewy, rich, and flavorful. Yum!

Vegetable Beef Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
This soup was fair. The flavor was a little shallow. I used a high quality beef broth in lieu of water and bouillon (which no doubt added flavor), and I added fresh kale and black-eyed peas. I believe this soup needs more spice. (I followed the receipe to the letter on the spice.) With all the good beef soup recipes out there, I probably won't make this one again.

Slow-Cooked Habanero Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
This chili recipe was a fun change of pace. The corn provides a sweet contrast to the earthy background flavors. We made burritos with the leftovers (using tortillas, cheese, and sour cream) that were equally as good.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
I used 3 tablespoons of honey, and finished them off under the broiler to give them a crisp coating. They were very good potatoes, and I'll certainly make them again.

Russian Tea Cakes I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2009
I doubled the vanilla and used very finely chopped nuts. These are delicious little cookies. But, I think this might be a "girls only" cookie. My husband picked one up with his big 'ol man hand, and it litterally exploded all over the kitchen floor! It was pretty funny. I suspect these cookies may be a little too dainty for men (both in taste and texture).

Winter Lentil Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2009
I soaked a pound of lentils in water overnight, and placed the soup in the slow cooker the next morning. I used fire roasted diced tomatoes, tons of garlic, and cut the cabbage in large shreds so it would hold up to the slow cooker. I cooked the soup on low for 10 hours, but the carrots were slightly undercooked (it ended up being a very large batch of soup). I cooked it another 3 hours on high, and the soup was perfect. Really, really comforting/tasty...

Cabbage Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2009
This is the perfect sloppy joe. I made the recipe as written (minus the celery -- I forgot to buy it at the store) and was more than pleased with the results. The cabbage is a fantastic addition.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2009
This recipe caught my husband off-guard. He went on and on about how great it was! I substituted sour cream for the mayonaise (I'm not a fan of hot mayonaise). I used marinaded artichokes (I squeezed them dry), and covered the dish with panko bread crumbs. This dish was quick, easy, and delicious. That's worth 5 stars in my book!

Best Ziti Ever

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
Very good! I used whole wheat pasta and italian turkey sausage. I mixed the pasta, sausage, and marinara together. I added carmelized onions and garlic to the ricotta. I placed one layer of the meat/marinara mixture on the bottom of the dish, then added all of the ricotta/onion mixture, a layer of cheese, a second layer of marina/meat mixture, and topped it with more cheese. Tres bien!

Italian Cream Cake II

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2009
I accidentally overcooked this cake. The recipe states the baking time is "25 to 40 minutes". That's quite a spread! I checked it at 30 minutes, and it was a already a little over done. Even though, it was still very good cake. (I doubled the icing recipe, and had way more than I needed for a 3 layer cake.)

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I used basmati white rice and canned diced tomatoes (since that's what I had on hand). This rice was very good.

Peach Pie the Old Fashioned Two Crust Way

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
These were my husband's exact words: "Oh my gosh, Sher... this pie is excellent!" Enough said :-)

Heavenly Zucchini Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I basically made this salad as directed, and it was very good (I reduced the sugar ever so slightly and used sweet pickle relish in lieu of diced sweet pickeles). This salad provided a nice contrast/went well with spicy mexican food.

Enchilada Casserole III

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
I make this casserole frequently (whenever I'm in the mood for mexican food). Which, just happens to be frequently :-) I add/mix sour cream with the meat mixture. I use ground chicken (in lieu of ground beef) quite often.

Sour Cream Chicken and Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
I've made this recipe a few times now, and it's great. I've adopoted two important short cuts (using leftover cooked chicken and leftover garlic mashed potatoes). I may not layer/assemble the casserole specifically as stated in the recipe, but all the ingredients are present and it makes for some great comfort food.

Cabbage Beef Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
This is good soup. I browned extra ground beef and onions on the weekend (when I made spaghetti), making it very easy to pull this soup together on a workday. I added fresh-cut carrots. I cut the cabbage in large shreds to help it hold it's shape in the slow cooker. I cooked it on low for 6 hours (then it set on the "warm only mode" for about 2 hours). This delicious soup was nice to come home to.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
I pounded the breasts down to about 1/2" an inch, and left them in the marinade for approximately 7 hours. The marinade is sweet/on the honey-tasting side. They were very good.

Ham 'n' Cheese Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
This dish was a little bland/boring. I probably won't make it again. Not because it was a bad recipe, but because for all these calories I need a taste experience that makes it all worth it!

Red Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
These were pretty decent mashed potatoes. I quadrupled the garlic. (I just can't help myself!) And, I doubled the recipe for left overs -- mashed potatoes freeze quite well (and the frozen left overs can be used to make mashed potato based casseroles, fried mashed potato patties, etc.).
