Christmas Tree Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
I never have very good luck with cut out cookie. Mine always taste like cardboard. These, however, were fantastic! I'm not a big fan of sugar cookies, but I couldn't stop eating these! The only change I made was substituting lemon extract for the almond. We will definitely be making these again!

Glazed Apple Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2010
These were fantastic! I didn't have any raisins, so I added an extra cup of apples. I also skipped the frosting after tasting how fabulous they were plain. I used a larger cookie scoop for the second batch, and chilled the dough for 30 min. before baking. The cookies came out bigger and puffier - delicious! I'll be making these again next weekend!

Summer Fruit Galettes

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
I made just one, as didn't have enough fruit for 2. My 3 peaches came to about 3 cups. I didn't have blueberries, so substituted 1/2 cup of frozen berry mix of raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. I added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon and used Wondra instead of all purpose flour. Tasted great with store bought roll out pie crust.

Ramen Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
I followed the recipe the first time and felt it only deserved 4 stars, as it was too oily for my family. The second time I added 1 cup shredded carrots and used only 3 Tablespoon olive oil (instead of 1/2 cup vegetable oil) and it made all the difference in the world. Next time I may try sesame oil and mandarine oranges.

Cranberry Apple Pie I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2010
Fantastic! I used 3 jonagold apples, 6 oz. of cranberries sliced in half, and 3/4 c. white sugar for the filling. I thickened with the whole 1/3 c. tapioca, but will reduce that next time to 3 Tablespoons. I didn't know if the filling would seep out, so didn't pile it to high (about 1 inch above the rim). I had no problems with seepage, so would heap more filling in next time. This time even though I had halved the filling called for in the recipe, I still had enough to make a small crisp with the leftover filling and streusel topping.

Hearty Creole Okra and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
This was great! We had never tried okra before, but had picked up some fresh ears of corn and okra from the local produce stand. I only had 1/2 the amount of okra called for, and no sausage, but it was still delicious. In place of the sausage we just substituted left over steak from last night's dinner. I'm sure it is fantastic with the sausage, but it was really great with steak. Husband, kids, and myself all had second helpings! I'll definitely be making this again, although next time I'll plan ahead and get all the ingredients.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2014
Wow! Who knew 4 ingredients could taste so delicious! I used a tip roast which I trimmed the fat off of and cut into 5 or 6 chunks to speed up cooking time. I seared it the chunks, one at a time, using about 1 tablespoon of olive oil. I cooked on high for 4.5 to 5 hours and added 1 lb. of baby carrots for the last two hours of cooking time. I only used 1 can of soup and half the water called for as the roast was less than 3 pounds. This will definitely be one of our regular meals. It got so many raves, I think I'll be making this at least once a month!

Six Threes Ice Cream

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
Incredible flavor! I'm not a huge fan of bananas, but couldn't get enough of this! We had trouble eating just two helpings a piece. We'll definitely be making this again. Were already dreaming of nectarine, orange, and lemon, or perhaps crushed pineapple, orange and lime. We made 6 twos. Thanks to the viewer who mentioned 2 oranges gave 4 oz. of juice, and 2 lemons gave 3 oz. This was a great time saver as I used my carton of orange juice and bottle of Real Lemon juice!

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2013
This was great! The only thing I did differently was use an 1/8 teaspoon salt instead of a pinch. Chaokah brand coconut milk was nice and creamy! This rice had a subtle flavor, yet a luxuriously rich feel, almost like a rice pudding. A definite keeper!

Marrakesh Vegetable Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
Phenomenal! This tastes delicious, is fabulously healthy, beautifully colorful, and makes your entire house smile divinely fragrant! I make it at least once a month. Plus, it makes enough to feed my family of four for two meals (and the two kids are teenagers with good appetites).

Strawberry and Feta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
This was okay. I used only 1/4 of the oil called for, but the dressing still felt really heavy and greasy. We have used the same salad ingredients with a raspberry or strawberry vinegarette and gotten better results with less effort.

Creamy Pesto Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2011
good the first time,better the second. I had trouble with my sauce separating, I think the cream was too hot when I added the cheese and pesto. The next time I cooked the pasta and asparagus together, drained the water and added the already cooked thawed shrimp and pesto to the pot and returned stove top to reheat. Sprinkled with parmesan just before serving. All agreed this was much tastier ( and easier).

Lentil Soup with Lemon

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
This was phenomenal! I taste tested it after it had been simmering about 30 minutes and some of the lentils were still firm, so I simmered another 10 minutes before testing again. At that point I went ahead and added the lemon juice, saving the cilantro as a garnish as some in my family don't care for it. I was amazed at the difference the lemon juice made - turning a tasty soup into something out of this world! We also tried it with a dollop of plain yogurt, as it appeared in the photo. That was also delicious! I will be making this at least once a month, as we are already putting dibs on the leftovers. I am so glad I made a double recipe! This is one of the best soups I've ever tasted!
