Chicken Chili with Black Beans and Corn

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2012
This chili was great! It had nice flavor and texture. I left out the peppers and black beans because of what we had and used 1/2 cup of chicken broth. Easy, healthy, recipe!

Classic Mini Meatloaves

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
These were excellent!! I've never even heard of a mini meatloaf, but everyone in my family loved them. The flavor was a great mix of savory and sweet. They were also easy to make, using ingredients that I already had on hand. I used half ground turkey and half beef; extra onion seasoning made a nice garnish. The meatloaves were done in about 35 minutes. I might use a little less tomato sauce next time, because I noticed they were a bit soft. Other than that, this is a great meatloaf recipe that I'll definitely make again!

Turkey Delight

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
Mmmm... This is a great recipe for Thanksgiving leftovers! I just used what I had- about 3/4 cup stuffing, 1 1/2 cups turkey, half a can of cream of mushroom, 1/2 cup gravy, and almost 2 cups mashed potatoes. I had to water the potatoes down a bit with milk to get them to a good consistency. I put it in a stone loaf pan with an aluminum foil tent for about 40 minutes, and it was bubbly, warm, and creamy. I'm guessing the end result would change based on if you used more or less of each ingredient. Thanks for the great, versatile recipe!

Chex® Pumpkin Pie Crunch

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2012
This stuff is great. It had just the right amount of spice. I replaced 1 cup of the rice chex with mini pretzels and only added what I had of the pecans- about 1/4 cup. The butter/spice mix might have been a bit more diluted if I had added the full amount. Thanks for the easy snack recipe that everyone enjoys!

Pretzel Turtles

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
These were so great! I loved the caramel, chocolate, and salt taste combo. They work well with rolos or dove caramel chocolates. Roasting the pecans for about 6 minutes before putting the pretzels in helped bring out their flavor. The hardest part was trying to stop everyone from eating them all before the party!

Granny's Ice Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
This was a great, easy ice cream! I added chocolate syrup and marshmallows. I didn't have an ice cream freezer so I mixed it every half hour or so. Great recipe!

Basic Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
This frosting was SO good! It had the perfect balance of sweetness and cream cheese flavor. I used about 3 cups of powdered sugar, and it ended up on the border between an icing and a frosting, perfect for frosting my pumpkin cookies. Will make this again, thanks for the great frosting!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
Wow! These were actually really good. I remember trying brussels sprouts when I was young and absolutely hating them. Now I think I'll be making them pretty often. My Dad picked up a giant stalk of the things on his annual grocery visit, and I wasn't very enthusiastic about them. I decided to try this recipe and I'm very glad I did. The texture was just perfect- not too mushy or too hard, just as a vegetable should be. They were salty and had crispy outer leaves. I added two cloves minced garlic, a slice of bacon crumbled into pieces, and roasted them for exactly a half hour, shaking them pretty often. My Dad and my brother liked them very much and so did I. Thanks for the awesome, healthy dish!

Autumn Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2012
These muffins were very nice! They had a good amount of spices and were also moist and sweet. I made them with raisins, cranberries, and honey crisp apples- using what we had on hand. I used applesauce instead of butter, making them a lot healthier, and replaced half the flour with whole wheat. Because of the natural sweetness from the raisins and apples, I think you could decrease the sugar somewhat, too. One batch made about 22 pretty good sized muffins for me, using paper liners. Thanks for the great fall recipe!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
These were really great! They were subtly spiced and and perfectly sweet with cream cheese icing. We shared them with the neighbors and the only few that were left out long enough did get a bit dry. Thanks for the great fall recipe!

Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
This chili is new, interesting, and quite tasty. I liked the use of pumpkin, and the peppers gave it a nice, sweet touch. I added about a cup of corn, a can of black beans, some cumin, red pepper flakes, used a 15 oz. can pumpkin, and added extra chili powder. I also use one can of crushed tomatoes and 1/2 can of stewed tomatoes, and orange peppers instead of the green. It was really great garnished with cilantro leaves. Thanks for the different, fall recipe that all of my family enjoyed!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2012
This was surprisingly good! I've tried Quinoa once before and didn't really like the way it tasted, but I prepared this way it tasted awesome. I made a half recipe with 3/4 of a can of beans and it was perfect. Me and my dad finished it off in one evening; it was awesome with some sour cream. Letting the cilantro sit with the other ingredients for a little bit longer did take some of the bite out, leaving the flavor. Thanks for the awesome, healthy recipe!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
I would give these cookies 35 stars if I could! They are absolutely the best pumpkin cookies I've ever tasted. Those who are hesitant to try them, do not fear! The subtle spice and pumpkin flavor mixes in perfectly with the chocolate, and they have a soft, cake-like texture. I did a 1.5 batch and it made about 42 pretty big cookies. When baked 10 minutes on a greased cookie sheet, they had lightly browned bottoms. When baked on parchment paper, they were finished after about 12 minutes, minus the crunchier bottom- but I do think they rose a bit less too. They ended up perfectly orange colored, so I don't know what happened to some other reviewers. Everyone loved them, thanks so much for the awesome cookies!!

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2012
This was a great way to make asparagus. The tricky part is cooking it just right. I tossed the asparagus spears in the olive oil with some pepper, salt, and garlic powder, and cooked over the stove top for about 15 minutes. Next time I'll add more garlic and maybe add some lemon juice on top. Great recipe!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2012
This was a pretty great bread! It was moist and delicious like everyone said it would be. I'm going to double the spices and reduce the oil next time. Thanks for the recipe!

Fantastic Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2012
Mmmmm! This is a rich, flavorful, and hearty chili. I really liked the spices- I added a little cumin to the meat as some others suggested and it was just great. I used only two cans of beans and added some stewed tomatoes, which I would definitely recommend. Topped with sour cream and shredded cheese- thanks for the delicious, healthy dish that everyone loves!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
Mmmmm.. these are nice, classic chocolate chip cookies. The texture really is perfect! I omitted the walnuts. You just have to be sure to not over bake them- right when the edges are browned a bit then they're done. I also think that the type of pan you use and how high the rack you put them. A dark pizza pan on the top rack gave flatter, browner cookies, while a nonstick cookie sheet made better ones. Thanks for the amazing cookies!

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2012
Yum! This is a good, basic pumpkin seed recipe. I made a small batch from a pie pumpkin, about 3/4 cups, and they were done in about 25 minutes. I also left them in the oven after turning it off to let them dry a bit more. Pumpkin seeds are our favorite after making pumpkin soup or jack-o-lanterns!
