Easy Pleasy Mac N Cheesy - US Navy Style

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2012
Awesome. This was the perfect comfort food/vegetarian option for my dinner party of five adults. For six, I'd probably consider upping it a bit, because there was only a spoonful left in the dish at the end of the evening! I was in a bit of a rush, so I set my oven for 400, cooked everything for 15 minutes and took the foil off for the last 3 minutes and it turned out pretty much perfect. Also, the fried onions on top? Awesome decision. Couldn't ask for a better flavor blend. This is going into our cookbook!

Quiche Lorraine I

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2013
This was my first attempt at making quiche, and my group of six 20-something friends *really* wished there was more! | Here are my adjustments: replaced bacon with Morningstar Facon strips with little noticeable difference (I'm not vegetarian.) Reduced whipping cream to slightly less than 1.5C. Used green onions, added fresh spinach. Cheese: 1C Swiss, 1/2C Gruyere (TIP: check the deli counter before you fork over for prepackaged gruyere; $4 worth from the deli was more than enough.) I used a standard shallow premade pie crust, so I had about 1/2C filling left over, and it was still a little messy. I ended up adding 3 more eggs to the remnant and using the leftover facon/cream/onions (which I mixed together rather than layering) to make another quiche, which also turned out great. ***Definitely cover the crust with foil after the first 15 min. I didn't for either quiche and the crust/cheese got a bit dark, but not burnt.*** Otherwise, I had no problems with setting; everything was firm and perfect straight out of the oven after the last 30 minutes. Total price for ingredients (I had nothing but salt, sugar and eggs in stock): $35

Three Cheese Chicken Penne Pasta Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
This would probably be a great recipe, but I'm a murphy's law cook and my 'alterations' turned it into a mushy mess. Here's what I learned: 1) Don't use quick cooking pasta. It disintegrates, and mixed with frozen spinach turns into glop. 2) The missing ingredient is garlic. Lots of garlic. 3) NEVER use quick cook pasta. Seriously.

Quinoa with Sweet Potatoes and Broccoli

Reviewed: May 30, 2015
What a delightful recipe! I halved the recipe, steamed a sweet potato in a bag, used a quarter of an onion (not a fan of onions) and 2 garlic cloves diced fine and sautéed in coconut oil, a dash of ginger and cinnamon and dried cranberries as reviewers suggested, as well as a handful of sliced almonds. I was a little nervous that the onions would still overwhelm, but with the amount I used, it's a lovely, well-rounded dish. I didn't bother with soy sauce; it was good with just a sprinkle of salt. I'd definitely make it again!
