Zucchini Crustless Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
Super easy recipe. We didn't have Crisco or anything and lined the dish with unsalted butter and a quick canola oil spray, which worked fine. We used 1/2 med. white onion, which was plenty for us. I recommend omitting the salt.

Spiced Slow Cooker Applesauce

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
Aside from peeling the apples, this recipe was super-easy and wonderfully tasty. My husband raved about the applesauce on his pork tenderloin. I made 1.5 batches and had to start the cooking in a larger pot, then once the apples reduced was able to transfer into a standard size crockpot. I think 6 hours of cooking is the upper limit needed, but that may depend on the cooking temp of the crockpot. I used granny smiths, jazz, and honey crisp apples.

Colorful Vegetable Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
Based on what we had in the house and my personal preference, I used red peppers instead of green and used Roma tomatoes instead of plum. I also opted for fresh green beans. We added onions (highly recommend), minced garlic, some garlic powder, basil, and thyme, to add more flavor. I agree that it turned out more "eggy" than I expected, but it was tasty and got compliments around the table. I ate leftovers for breakfast and it was quite tasty reheated. NOTE: Increase prep time from 10 to 30-45 minutes depending on your cooking experience level, how many veggies you're adding, and whether you're hand-chopping or using pre-chopped.

Baked Zucchini Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
These tasted good but were a little more "eggy" than I'd hoped or was prepared for. They also didn't make good finger food, which I was hoping. Be sure to serve on a plate with fork.

Brunch Strata

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This would be great without the ham, too, for vegetarians or non-pork eaters. We opted for red peppers instead of green and used yellow onions. Due to allergies we omitted the garlic and added some pepper. Tasty and a big hit at brunch! I would also bump up the prep time a bit.

Cranberry Brunch Punch

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
While I, personally, wouldn't have given this five stars, I'm basing my rating on how quickly it went at a recent brunch. I would recommend doubling or tripling the recipe, especially if there are kids in attendance - they LOVED it! Ours was more murky looking and less colorfully-appealing than the picture but tasted great all the same.

Buckeyes II

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
Definitely glad I made this recipe over the others - the graham crackers make all the difference! I doubled the recipe and used 1 cup generic store brand creamy PB (lower sodium, lower fat) and one cup natural creamy PB. I should have poured more of the oil off the top of the natural PB as the mixture was too creamy, and I had to freeze the balls before dipping. I liked the more peanut taste from the natural PB. I can't figure out a good way of closing or covering the holes but that doesn't change how great they taste!

Chocolate Chow Mein Clusters

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2010
We used equal parts butterscotch and chocolate chips, and I think I will use more chocolate next time. We also used lightly salted cashews. They got great reviews all around!

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2011
Yes, this was easy, and I tried it because I didn't have any tahini on-hand, and I only found out after the fact that I had sesame oil. This recipe left something to be desired (perhaps I missed the sesame taste and couldn't get past it?). I almost tripled the cayenne and lemon and used a little more salt, and still this left my palate wanting.

Savory Slow Cooker Squash and Apple Dish

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2011
Fair. My crockpot cooks rather quickly, so on high it took only about 2.5-3 hrs. Mine is also old-school, so I couldn't fit the requisite amount of ingredients and had to guess at the proportions I was adding. I used yellow onion and thought it was overpowering. I recommend sauteeing the onions first for a more consistent texture, otherwise, it's crunchy onions with mushy squash and apples. Mine looks nothing like the picture and the sqaush ended up with a stringy texture. Not sure I'll make this one again.

Pork Chops with Apples, Onions, and Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2010
I'm still getting used to "sweet" dinners, and I'd eat this again and again! Based on others' recommendations, we cooked a little longer for the potatoes, but I think it was a little too long for the pork - so I might recommend slightly pre-cooking the potatoes. We opted to chop all onions, apples, and potatoes, which I think I would prefer to layering big onion rings. We also used yellow onions, which I think provided the perfect balance. White onions may have been too strong.

Creamy Carrot With Curry Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This was a hit at Christmas dinner with several guests asking for the recipe. My husband threw in more than a pinch of sugar, and I thought it was too sweet as a result. Otherwise, easy recipe, great to take in a crock pot to a potluck or to keep warm before serving. Because it was a potluck/buffet, I opted for no garnish, which did not lack for taste.
