Italian Chicken with Garlic and Lemon

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2015
I made this essentially as directed, using skinnless, boneless chicken breasts. The whole family ate it, but they all said that there was something not quite right about the flavors. I may try it again and make some changes.

Almond Flour Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2015
These were wonderful! I used only 4 TBS of the cocoa, since it's all I had, and I did add a pinch of salt. There was plenty of chocolate flavor, even with the reduced amount of cocoa. They were moist, and that hint of coconut flavor was lovely! Thanks for a terrific recipe! I will make these very often!

Kale Chips in the Microwave

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2015
I loved the idea of making these in the microwave, rather than heating up the oven. However, I did have an issue with the chips flaring up and sparking after only about 1 minute. I think I have a high wattage microwave, so perhaps that was the issue. I would suggest you do be careful to watch as they cook. The chips were delicious and crisp. I may try these again with much more watching.

Sriracha-Lime Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2015
Terrific! I made them just as directed, though with a pinch more salt. Mine were done in about 15 minutes. With kale growing like hot cakes in the garden, I'll make these again and again! Thanks for a great recipe!

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Reviewed: May 19, 2015
I had only the cannellini beans, and I had to reduce the spices slightly to accommodate a few picky eaters, but this is a wonderful soup! I didn't puree it, since I like the bits and pieces, and the red lentils become so soft. I used a little chicken broth instead of plain water in my first batch. This is a keeper! Thank you.

Sweet Tamale Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2015
Wonderful! I had to make changes based on what my family will eat. I won't bore anyone with the substitutions, but had to keep the spiciness at a minimum, and I don't buy mixes, so I used my homemade buttermilk cornbread recipe. All three generations loved it! Thanks for a terrific recipe!

Chicken Francesa

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2015
Oh, boy! This lovely chicken was served to three generations, and everyone said this recipe is a keeper. I was too lazy to pound the chicken, cutting the breasts in halves instead. The orange liqueur added another dimension I didn't expect. I forgot the lemons, but I'm sure they would have boosted the flavor even more. I served this with risotto on the side. I would be proud to serve this to company! Thank you for a terrific recipe!

Chia Coconut Pudding with Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2015
Terrific! There are no empty calories from starch, so I didn't feel bad that the whole batch disappeared almost at once. We thought we might add a bit more vanilla for our taste, but this was wonderful. Thanks for the great recipe!

Turkey Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2015
This was a good soup, though a little bland. I did substitute 1% milk for the cream due to diet restrictions, and had to add some thyme. A pinch of ground red pepper helped, too. This is a great way to use up leftover smoked turkey.

Dairy and Wheat Free Apple-Cinnamon Spelt Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2015
I've made these with and without the apple and cinnamon. They are loved by the whole family! I use either extra light olive oil or avocado oil for healthier, but neutral flavor.. Thanks for a terrific recipe.

Overnight Blueberry French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2015
The whole family enjoyed this with Christmas brunch. I made it as directed except making an extra half recipe of blueberry syrup, but I don't think it really needed it. It was very rich, so it served about 12 of us nicely with a little left over. Excellent recipe. Thanks.

Irish Lassie's Liver and Onions

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2014
I made this for my husband, and though I didn't try it, I have to give it the full 5 stars for his reaction. I had no peppers, nor did I have any mushrooms, but otherwise made this pretty much as is. I did follow a suggestion from years ago to soak the liver first in milk for about an hour. I did dredge the meat in flour seasoned with salt and pepper when frying, too. My husband really loved the gravy. I will make this again exactly as written. Thanks for a special dish!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2014
So easy, fast, and very tasty! I wouldn't change a thing, though I had only dried basil and no parsley. Thanks for a great recipe!

Super Summer Kale Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2014
Kale? Isn't that a nasty leafy green vegetable? But I just adored this salad! I wouldn't change a thing, though this recipe lends itself well to using what you have on hand. I did cut the sugar down a smidgen the second time I made it, but it's wonderful as is. The organic market deli sold a very similar salad for about $1000/pound, but we can make it much less expensively. Do try this, even if you don't think you like kale.

Mashed Potato, Rutabaga, and Parsnip Casserole with Caramelized Onions

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2014
I would proudly serve this at Thanksgiving! Rutabagas are nearly forgotten, it seems. I don't think about them often, even though I like them. The store had no parsnips, so I omitted them, but the seasonings were so perfect, I was able to lower the salt for my husband's diet without sacrificing flavor. I cooked the onions in avocado oil instead of butter. I will cook this often with my family's blessings! Thank you for a great dish!

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2014
I think it's fair to rate this, even though I made some minor changes. I followed the advice of a couple of other reviewers and used 6 (picked right from the garden!) jalapeños, chopped and mostly seeded. I also melted about 2 TBS butter, which I mixed with about 1/2 cup panko crumbs and the fresh Parmesan, and then topped the cheese mixture with the buttery crumb mixture. I baked the dish at 375 F for about 20 minutes, or until golden brown and heated through. I only had Ritz crackers, but we could hardly stop ourselves from finishing the whole plate in one sitting! Thanks for an easy, marvelous recipe!

Spicy Refrigerator Dill Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
This will be my new refrigerator dill pickle recipe! I did follow other reviewers' advice and cut the sugar in half. I doubled the amount of red pepper flakes, since my family prefers the heat. I did not add additional sprigs of dill to the jars, and we all found the chopped dill to be more than enough for a full dill flavor. Wonderful pickles! Thanks for the great recipe! I wish I had made a double batch!

Catherine's Pickled Blueberries

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
I followed the recipe exactly for the first time. I followed the timing, but found the sauce rather thin. Next time, I will probably boil the sauce longer to thicken it more, since I wasn't sure how thick it was supposed to be. The flavor was very good, but my family, who usually like this sort of thing, said that I didn't necessarily need to make it again. I think I will try it again, but may add some sort of spicy element and will thicken it a bit more so it isn't as runny. Cooking times always vary a bit, and now I know what to aim for. Thanks for a very good recipe!

Jan's Jalapeno Popper Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2014
I followed this exactly, so that I might judge the recipe for itself. The flavor was good. I think this might be best on a thin crust, as the thicker crust overwhelmed the toppings a bit. I used home-grown jalapenos, which may have been milder than others, but we found the flavor needed just a little more of a boost. I will be making this again, but will double the bacon and jalapenos next time. Great idea for a great pizza! Thanks for the recipe!
