Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2013
I grew up eating (and loving) these cookies. The pumpkin is subtle enough that even my husband (not a pumpkin fan) likes them. I half the recipe, but still use an entire egg. I use regular sized chocolate chips and my oats are just "old fashioned rolled oats" rather than "quick" oats. Highly recommend this recipe.

Clam Sauce with Linguine

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2011
I made this for my husband and he loved it. I didn't try it, but my rating is based on his comments. I omitted the mushrooms and added a splash of heavy cream at the end. He was a fan.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
It had never occurred to me, before this, to make tomato soup from scratch, but after trying this I will never eat it from a can again! Delicious winter recipe. My 5-star review was based on the following modifications: - I sauteed 1/4 of a white onion and 6 cloves of garlic in 1/4 of a cup of butter. I then ommitted the butter from the last step. - I halfed the cream and still found it plenty rich. I served this sandwich with grilled cheese, bacon and tomato sandwiches. My husband was very pleased. I will make this again, for sure.

Shrimp Jambalaya

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2011
This is a great recipe... and SO easy. My husband was thoroughly impressed. Here are the changes I made: I used chicken broth instead of veggie broth. I added a few dashes of liquid smoke. I omitted the peas. I added sliced chorizo. I substituted Cajun seasoning for Creole seasoning. Delicious!

Luscious Chicken Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Huge hit at my house. I can't give it 5 full star though, as I do believe it requires some "spicing up." I add salt, pepper, fresh thyme, garlic and onion powders, sour cream and mozzarella cheese. I also use an egg wash. This pot pie seems to please just about everyone.

Slow-Cooked Short Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2010
Yum. I quartered this recipe and skipped the browning. I also added some liquid smoke. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. We really enjoyed it. I wish the broth was slightly thicker, but I'm sure I could add some cornstarch to remedy that problem. This is a keeper.

Slow Cooker Carolina BBQ

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2010
This was delicious! Exactly what I had in mind; tangy, tender barbecue. My very picky husband raved. Plus- it was a piece of cake to make. I cooked it on high for 5 hours and it was perfect. I will absolutely make this again.

Cha Cha's White Chicken Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2010
This was excellent, though I am hesitant to call it "chili." It really had more of a soup consistency. I cut back on the jalapeno peppers and pureed half of the beans (which helped to thicken it up). I also topped it with a dollop of sour cream and some fresh cilantro. My husband and I loved this! I will make again, for sure.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
I made these for a cookie exchange. They were pretty good. They had a subtle flavor and they weren't terribly sweet. The only adjustment I made was to add a teaspoon of instant espresso with the vanilla. I always do this in chocolate recipes as I find it enhances the chocolate flavor. They were well received.

Yummy Artichoke Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
Honestly, you cannot go wrong with this recipe. I omit the green chile peppers (they seem a bit random and unnecessary) and I got a bit heavier on the artichokes. People die for this dip. Really.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
Not sure what I did wrong, but this ended up far too dry. I may try it again, as my husband liked the flavor, but I was hoping for more sauce. Perhaps some chicken stock or white wine next time.

Irresistible Pecan Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
Awesome- but certainly not for the "I don't love sweets" types! My five stars are based on the following amendments taken from other reviewers: - I added a few hearty dashes of cinnamon and 1 tablespoon of vanilla - I added 1 tablespoon of flour to the filling - I substituted the dark Karo for 1 tablespoon of molasses (only because I had no dark Karo). The result was fabulous. I used a store-bought pie crust and I didn't bother to arrange the pecans in a dainty pattern. I will surely make this again!

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
Fabulous! It was a bit different from the sweet potato casserole of my childhood; I wasn't accustomed to the OJ, but I found it to be the perfect addition. I added a layer of pecans and brown sugar under the marshmallows- YUM!

Cornbread Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
This was exactly what I was looking for! Wow! I followed the recipe exactly and it was a huge Thanksgiving hit. I loved the moist consistency.

Crepes

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
I was always intimidated by crepes, but they are my husband's favorite breakfast food, so I decided to give them a try. These are wonderful and soooo easy. I added a touch of powdered sugar and a splash of vanilla extract. The kitchen smelled fabulous. Before the hour of refrigeration was up, my husband was stirring, but no matter, even after only about 30 minutes in the fridge they set just fine. I know this recipes says it makes 8 servings, but it actually fed the two of us perfectly.... is that bad to admit?

Fruity Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
This was delicious! However, it did require a bit of tweaking. I took the advice of previous reviewers and added OJ. Great tip! I also substituted golden raisins for the craisins, and I used malayta apricots instead of the traditional ones. I added a bit of cinnamon and a can of chick peas as well. LOVED it!

Tuna Noodle Casserole III

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2009
This is the tuna casserole of my childhood. I love this stuff! Even my husband who usually won't go near a casserole approves! I substitute the American Cheese for grated mozzarella and muenster. Yum!

Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
This was awesome. I used it to frost my mother-in-law's birthday cake and it was a huge hit. My husband had to restrain me from eating it straight from the bowl. It was pretty soft the night that I made it, but set well in the fridge overnight. I wish it was a bit darker, mine was a very light brown... I may use a bit more chocolate next time.

Garlic and Basil Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
This was fabulous. I had a ton of leftover basil, so I doubled this recipe and I added a handful of arugula as well. I dumped all of the ingredients in my food processor, rather than a blender. I have tossed this dressing with pasta and quinoa for quick salads. I'm sure I will continue to make this/versions of this for years to come!

Amazing Sun-Dried Tomato Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2008
This recipe lives up to its name; it really was amazing! I made a few modifications, as suggested by other readers. I started with sauted shallots and garlic, to which I added the cream and butter. I also added some red pepper flakes, omitted the nuts and added peas and shrimp to finish. I served the sauce over Trader Joe's artichoke tortellinis and it was a BIG hit.
