Classic Waffles

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2013
Tasty. I did make two minor changes. Used only 1/4 cup melted butter and added 2 tsp lemon juice to the milk and let it sit for a while. Also let the batter sit for about 10 minutes prior to cooking.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2011
These were wonderful. I made a few changes. Added a few TBSP of chopped cilantro. Used chopped green chiles instead of green pepper. Added ~1/4 cup of shredded "Mexican seasoned" cheese. Minced the onion and garlic and sauteed them a bit before mixing everything together. I pan-fried a small sample patty and found it needed salt and pepper. Made three large patties and baked them. Ate them on "Tasty Buns" from this site with some chipotle-mayo-sour cream on top... as advised by a couple other reviewers.

Restaurant-Style Taco Meat Seasoning

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Added fresh minced onion instead of dried. It was missing something until I added SMOKED paprika. That made it special.

Sweet Corn Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
I used a little frozen corn plus one can of cream corn. Added just a little water. Didn't have any masa so just used AP flour. Ridiculously delicious.

Angela's Awesome Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2010
Skipped the olives and added cilantro. I think I stuck to the recipe pretty closely otherwise. It's not a healthy meal, but it sure is delicious! Clean plates all around, even my 4-year old.

Chicken Stew With Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2009
Made on the stove. This is good as written, but here are my mods: Use a whole can of coconut milk. Peas instead of lima beans. Add sweet potatoes, a bay leaf, a can of diced tomatoes, 1/4 c. of golden raisins, a bit more spice, and sometimes squash. Chop, dump in pot, saute the veggies a bit, then add the liquids and simmer for about 30 min. I add the chicken during the last 10 min. Everyone who tries it has loved it, including my 5-yr old. This has become a frequent go-to meal... an easy, everyone-likes-it, one-pot dinner that cooks up quickly and tastes fantastic.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Our first quinoa experience - and it was DELICIOUS. My 3-yr-old ate his whole bowl and he doesn't normally like things "mixed together". I admit that I added a couple things, but the recipe would truly be great as written... My changes: Only used 1 can beans. Added 1 chopped poblano, 1 chopped tomato, 1 TB chipotle en adobo sauce (from can), and 1/2 cup cooked chicken. Served with avocado and sour cream/yogurt mix.

Slow Cooker Pernil Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2009
Used a pork loin. Did not blend ingredients - just minced the onions instead. Followed the directions except I added some ground coriander and had to use dried oregano. Cooked overnight on low. Moist, fragrant, tasty!

Stuffed Pork Chops III

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
I used pre-stuffed chops from the grocery store, so can't say anything about the stuffing. I can comment on the cooking method... After browning the chops, I added a little garlic powder and cognac to pan with the beef broth. Chops were moist and very tasty! Will make them again.

Sour Cream Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2008
This recipe is was surprisingly, fantastically delicious. I admit, I changed three things: 1) did a rub on the chops with a "Jerk" seasoning before dredging... 2) used an envelope of Lipton onion soup instead of bouillon cubes... 3) used only about 1/4 cup sour cream in the sauce. I cooked it on high for about 3.5 hours. We ate it over egg noodles and both wanted three helpings, but stopped at two.

Jamaican Beef Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
I made the filling as written. To save time, I used rolled-out refrigerator biscuits as the crust. I brushed them with egg before baking. They were really tasty. I'll make them again, maybe adding some peas or a few other spices to jazz up the filling.

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
I made as written (except I used old fashioned oats), then added chocolate chips to one half and raisins to the other half. I didn't chill the dough or grease the pans or flatten the cookies (just dropped them on with a spoon). They turned out delicious, soft, chewy, and slightly spiced. Just like an oatmeal cookie should be! (And a really big "mmmmm" from my toddler, who rarely gets cookies!) I don't often have such good success with cookies. This will be my standard oatmeal recipe.

Banana Sour Cream Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
I cut this recipe in half and used a mini muffin pan. I also used half oil and half applesauce. For some reason, the tops of the muffins never browned (although the sides were fine). They tasted pretty good the first day, but the appearance was off-putting... they looked uncooked. My young son was not thrilled, and he's usually a fan of muffins.

Swedish Meatballs I

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
Note: I only made the sauce from this recipe. Consistency was wrong (not light and creamy). Taste was wrong (not remotely like "restaurant" recipes). Very glad I didn't put all my meatballs into this sauce.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
Since I'm in my 30s, I decided to take it upon myself to try brussels sprouts for the first time. I used fresh ones. I added one large, thinly-sliced garlic clove to this recipe, keeping the sprouts on top of the garlic while roasting so the garlic wouldn't burn. Slightly bitter taste on the outside may be due to the garlic, but I can't be sure, since I never tasted them before! Left them in for 45 minutes. Had it for a simple lunch, with pasta sprinkled with Parmesan. Pretty good... good enough to give them another go.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
Nice "walk-away" recipe. Turned out tasty with provolone and sauteed onions on some crusty rolls. Tasted just as good out of the freezer. Will make again.

Easy Masoor Daal

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2006
I made this in a way very similar to NKASAM... using fresh onions, garlic, a mix of oil & butter. Totally delicious. Even my 1-yr old loved it. :) I've made it twice already.

Pasta with Scallops, Zucchini, and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2006
Wow, this surprised me. I made it because I had all the ingredients. (I used a can of diced tomatoes.) I thought the ingredients sounded boring, and that there would be way too much basil... but it was all perfect! Super fresh-tasting. I was really, really glad to have leftovers. I think I'd use less pasta next time.

Cajun Seafood Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2006
Really good, really fast. I made a couple small changes... half-and-half, bay scallops, and gouda instead of swiss. I was really, really happy to have leftovers. The fresh herbs were delicious. Next time I won't make as much pasta. (There will be a next time!)

Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2005
Super good! I added more blue cheese and only used about 2 lbs of beef. Very moist and the blue cheese/chives really stood out. (I thought the flavors would get lost inside the burgers.) These will be a standard... I've made them twice already. Try them!
