No Bake Cookies I

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
Delicious! Though even my husband who has the sweetest tooth of anyone I know says they'll put you in a diabetic coma. I think cutting the sugar back by 1/3 would take nothing away from them.

Greek Penne and Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
With minor modifications, this was the best quick meal I've made. Substituted: Pasta- used whole wheat penne. Onion- yellow instead of red (I think the taste would have been too peppery). Tomato- 5 or 6 sliced cherry tomatos. Low-fat feta- made sauce creamer and meal healthier. Added- 1/2 cup frozen spinach, thawed Added-marinade from jar of marinated artichoke hearts.

Sweet Potato Casserole IV

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I made this for Thanksgiving Dinner last year and it was a BIG hit. Made exactly as written, no changes and it was delicious. It was sweet enough to serve as a desert, to be honest, but at Thanksgiving, who cares? I'll be making this again this year, for sure.

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
This is pretty much the exact same recipe on the box of German chocolate I bought. There should be a disclaimer somewhere. That being said, it's a great recipe. VERY time consuming- something I'll save to make on special occasions.

Fast Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
I read the reviews and thought I'd try this. Maybe I'm just picky, but this tasted nothing like rice pudding to me. After being in a covered container in the fridge overnight, the rice absorbed all the liquid so I was left with a bowl of sticky, sweet rice the next day. Which I guess is okay, but it's not rice pudding. Next time, I'll try the old fashioned way, I don't think there is a shortcut to good rice pudding.

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
Great recipe as is, didn't change a thing. I've never had falafels before and this was my first time making them. They were really, REALLY good. Even my husband, who says he hates chickpeas, thought it was quite tasty. The cucumber sauce is fantastic!

Naan

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
Good without the garlic too. The trick is making it as thin as possible. You also have to turn it a few times. After you put it on the skillet, you wait until the first bubble starts on the bottom. Wait a minute for it to get as big as it's going to get and flip it! I use tongs, not a spatula as that can deflate the bubble. Same with the other side...wait for the bubble to form and flip it again. You definitely need to watch them as you make it. The initial time to make the dough takes a while. Is it time consuming? Yes. Worth it? Totally. It makes so much, I just refrigerate the dough and make 5 or 6 every day at breakfast and we eat it throughout the day.

Strawberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
This was my first attempt at a cheesecake. I used the base recipe and omitted the strawberries just because I wanted to keep it simple for my first try. I can't believe how rich and thick this was, it was delicious! I'm going to try it with the strawberry sauce next time.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2010
Excellent recipe! I didn't have any vegetable stock so I used the water from the can of artichoke hearts instead. My husband doesn't even like artichokes and he had 2 servings! Definitely a keeper.

Salmon Cakes III

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
I used bread crumbs with this recipe instead of a slice of bread. I think it would be a little bland otherwise. My ex's grandmother used to make these for us all the time, it's a comfort food for me. I eat them with applesauce. She picked out the bones and used a food processor to mix all the ingredients. It seems to work since every time I make them without a food processor, they don't hold shape at all. This time was no exception. I love them anyway but my boyfriend was turned off to them because you can't eat them without it falling off your fork.

Mexican Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2008
This recipe is a new favorite in my home. We omit the olives (neither of us like olives) but it's otherwise perfect as is. It's a nice twist on a classic meal. Love it!
