Vegan Bean Taco Filling

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
I gave this 5 stars for my husband. It was a bit too spicy for my taste, but he really liked it, and he isn't always excited when I make vegetarian meals!

Chicken with Garlic, Basil, and Parsley

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
The whole family loved this, which is hard to do! I think I'll mince the garlic instead next time because biting into the slices was not fun. I was surprised how moist this was!

Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2012
Will definitely make this again! I forgot about the tomatoes, so I didn't have those in, but a great dinner that goes a long way!

Lamb and Asparagus Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
I enjoyed this, even though I needed to sub the tomato paste for ketchup because I forgot to pick it up at the store. I doubled the whole recipe, except the asparagus and we still had plenty asparagus! I think this would go perfect with some pita bread on the side as well.

Shrimp Tempura

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
I was really surprised with how much I like this. Given the ingredients I didn't expect much flavor, and it isn't "flavorful", but it definitely has a good flavor. I substituted rice vinegar for the wine and used gluten free all purpose flour.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
The cake was amazing, but it really didn't need the sauce and everyone who tried it liked it better without the sauce. I'm not sure how to make the sauce better, but I think next time I may just skip it.

Mini Cheesecakes I

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
These were a huge hit at a party I brought them to. You do not need a full 12 oz. of vanilla wafers though! I have a ton of left over crushed vanilla wafers now. These were extremely simple to make. I definitely will make them again.

Chocolate Chip Dream Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
This was perfect! Between my husband and a friend that came over the night I made it, almost the whole pan was gone in just a matter of hours! Best thing is we have everything typically on hand, so I can make this as a last minute idea.

Porcupines

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
This is my daughter's favorite and she asks for me to make this when she has friends over. I always sprinkle some basil over the sauce before baking, just to add a bit more flavor. It is perfect with green beans.

Beefy Spanish Rice

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2010
We love this in our home, and it has become something that we have almost monthly (which is pretty often for us!). It is so simple, and I almost always have everything on hand, so I can make it in a pinch. My husband keeps the bottle of red pepper flakes next to him to add some more spice that the rest of us don't want.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
This is a great recipe! I used applesauce in replacement of some of the oil and next time I'll use even more to cut down on calories because I was happy with how it came out. This is definitely one to keep!!

Caribbean Stir-Fried Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2010
This dish is very colorful and easy to make, plus it does have a good taste, but it felt like something was missing... more salt? Not sure

Beet Surprise Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
This was great! This has quickly turned into a family favorite and my daughter thinks now the only thing beets are good for is this cake! With our CSA, we get beets, so I had to find something to do with them, and hubby could not guess what "surprise" I had in the cake. Even after I told him, he couldn't taste it... he just thought I made chocolate cake! The frosting turned out fine, but the cake broke up in the frosting when I spread it on. I frosted it a day later, so maybe that's why, but it tasted all the same.

Hobo Dinner

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
I love how easy this is... especially on nights where my husband and child need to eat and I can't make them dinner! We used more than one pound of ground beef. I think next time I might put some butter on top to give the potatoes a bit of that flavor. Overall, it is was great!

Cheesy Tuna Melts

Reviewed: May 24, 2010
This totally saved my night when I had little time, and my kid had to be at their sports practice!! I put 5 stars because it is so easy, so quick, and still really good.

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
I gave three stars because the cumin was too much for me, but the base recipe is something I know I will come back to and tweek myself. My husband really liked it, but he likes things more spicy than I do. I didn't have chili powder, so I used red pepper flakes and I like the taste of those! I love the veggies in this!

All American Apple Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
My family LOVED this recipe. I sprinkled some cinnamon sugar on top before putting it in the oven to give it a bit of a sweeter taste but I'm sure it would be amazing without as well.

Fried Rice

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I tried this with red onions and green onions and both turned out great. I also added in some salmon I had broiled and the tastes blended together quite well.

Fresh Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
Both my husband and I really liked this lasagna, even with removing the dry white wine from the recipe. I wouldn't say it is a kid-pleaser at all, but it definitely has a great flavor that would be great in any pot luck with adults!
