Crab Legs with Garlic Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
Mmmm! This is my favorite way to prepare crab legs. The buttery, garlic flavor accents the flavor of the crab very well. It was also easy to make; using pre-cooked crab legs was pretty convenient. Great recipe!

Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2012
This cake is so awesome! Everyone loved it, and it was super easy to make. I also appreciated how it was on the light side, too. I used lemon cake mix, and I think it was perfectly lemony. I made it in a 9x13 pan and it came out fine. I used extra frosting (it was great frosting, too!) to decorate with raspberries. It was more on the spongy side because of the pudding, but that made it unique from the light tea- style cake that I was expecting. I think it has something to do with how long you beat it for. Thanks, I'm keeping this recipe!

Best Spinach Dip Ever

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
We love making this spinach dip recipe! We always bring it to parties and everyone else likes it too. The only thing we do different is omit the water chestnuts. Its an awesome recipe!

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
This was a pretty good dish. I love spaghetti squash; or at least I remember eating it when I was littler and liking it a lot. Puncturing the squash before cooking was a good idea, and cooking took about 40 minutes. I liked the texture and the tomatoes, but there was something too overpowering about the flavor. It think it was because I didn't have any feta cheese, so I had to use Romano. I also omitted the olives. The squash's natural flavor would probably be accented better with the proper ingredients. Anyway, I'll try this again when I'm more prepared. Thanks!

Mmm-Mmm Better Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2012
These brownies were great; chocolaty and fudgey, even better with some nuts on top. However, they didn't work AT ALL for what I needed. I was making brownie pops, and the batter was so sticky and thick that it made dense, squishy blobs. After one batch I made mini loaves out of the rest of the batter and switched to quick- and easy brownies. This is a great recipe, but I definitively wouldn't recommend trying to make pops with it. My mistake!

Apple Toast

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2012
This was a nice snack and a creative idea. I loved the crunchy toast and chewy apples. Make sure to sprinkle the cinnamon evenly. With an electric oven that has two broil settings, level High is the way to go. Awesome recipe!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2012
Mmmm... This soup is so nice! I really liked the ham in it. I also added a bit of chopped carrot, used more potatoes, and chicken broth instead of the water and bouillon. The milk mixture didn't thicken up in the pan, maybe I didn't add enough flour or added the milk too fast. It did thicken up in the soup pot though, and gave it a nice texture. Thanks for the awesome soup!

Farmer's Market Vegetarian Quesadillas

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
These were awesome! I had some zuccini and squash left over from the garden and some red onion so I gave these a try, and I'm so glad I did! The flavors of the vegetables worked really well together. I've never made quesadillas before, and I learned to make sure the temp is nearer to medium and that the tortilla is crisp before flipping so that nothing spills out. I used fat- free cheddar cheese and it worked fine; I might just put a little ore next time. I don't think it needed any seasoning though it would probably taste good with some anyway. Thanks for the great recipe!

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
This is a nice recipe. It is a very healthy and creative idea to make leafy greens into chips, and it tastes great as long as you are careful. For one, make sure you use FRESH kale, because it will go bad in a few days, and you don't want that to happen. Second, be sure to cut the kale into small enough pieces that will bake up crispy. The texture is important. Be sure you have "seasoned salt", because it's pretty hard to substitute. This recipe would also be a lot easier if you had a salad spinner to do all the washing for you. Nice recipe!

Cream Cheesy Cubed Zucchini with Lemon and Oregano

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
Mmm, I thought this was pretty good. It had a nice zest to it, even though I used lemon juice instead of the real zest. I also used dried oregano, and after adding one teaspoon I thought that was enough. Thanks for a great new way to make zucchini!

Ken's Scallops

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
This is a nice scallop recipe. This was my first time cooking scallops; it was a nice starter's recipe that accented the scallop's flavor. They do take longer than 3 min. to cook, especially I think if they're a large size. I think I'll use more of the basil and garlic next time; I only used one clove for a double recipe and wasn't sure how much "a bunch" of basil was. Still, it was a nice, easy- to- do recipe that I'll experiment with again!

Gobble Up Granola Snacks

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
Mmmmmm!! This is what everyone said when they tried these. I used honey instead of corn syrup and sprinkled some chocolate chips on the top, freezing for a few minutes to harden them. I loved the peanut- butter and honey taste. My dad said he likes these better than rice crispy treats!

Pumpkin Parfait

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
This is such an awesome recipe! It tastes just like pumpkin pie in pudding form. I noticed it doesn't even have added sugar, and was surprised at how tasty it was (to be low- calorie). I used canned pumpkin and 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1/4 SCANT tsp. ginger, and 1/8 tsp. cloves for the pumpkin pie spice. If you use the full 1/4 tsp ginger, you will be able to taste the bite. It was great with a raspberry and some whipped cream on top or mixed in. Great for Thanksgiving, company, or just anytime because most everyone likes it!

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
This bread is great! It was moist, sweet, and not too dense. I never would have thought that blueberries and zucchini would taste good together, but I had some extra zucchinis from my garden and thought I'd give it a try. I made some changes to make it healthier- 1/2 applesauce + 1/2 oil, egg substitute, 1c. sugar + 1c. splenda, and half the flour whole. The batter made 12 regular-sized muffins and two mini- loaves. I'll definitely use this recipe again!

Cinnamon and Raisin Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
This is a great cream- cheesy spread! It was nicely cinnamon and raisin flavored and was also creamier than I expected. This is probably because I used regular cream cheese and a little less than a cup of low fat cottage cheese. I also upped the cinnamon to two teaspoons, we liked it on toast and bagels. Next time I will definitely try fat- free cream cheese to see what the consistency is like and to make it a little healthier. Thanks for the nice spread!

Slow Cooker Tender and Yummy Round Steak

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
Great recipe! It's easy to throw together, creamy and has a good mix of veggies. I used about six red potatoes and about 24 baby carrots. Just be careful not to dry out the meat if you're using a crock pot instead of a slow cooker- mine was boiling and done after about six hours. Thanks for the great recipe!

Blueberry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
Nice dessert bars! I definitely would recommend using butter- flavored shortening (or butter) and sticking to all- purpose flour because you can really taste the difference. It would be fun to try out different types of berries. Great, flexible dessert!

Dark Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
Wonderful, wonderful, cake! Comes out perfectly if you let the first mixture cool and are sure to beat the eggs in well. Scaled it down to a one- layer cake, iced with dark chocolate fudge icing and added fondant. Doesn't have the bitter taste that is sometimes associated with dark chocolate. Delicious!

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
Great, classical recipe. It was nice to have it typed down somewhere where I could adjust the servings. I used 1/4 recipe to make a balloon cake for my sister's birthday- it worked great! Hint: The treats are best when they're warm.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
MMMMMMM! This pie is worth anything you put into it!! It's inexplicably good. You have to try it to know. It's good to cut the chicken into small enough pieces, and to make sure the onion sauce is thick; kind of like gravy- it's what adds all the flavor. I would definitely reduce the butter- 3 or 4 tablespoons is plenty for sauteing. It is also good to have a nice, flaky crust to complete the pie. You also will definitely need an extra large or deep- dish pie shell if you're planning on fitting all of the ingredients in. If not, you could always bake the extra separately. Thank you for the amazing pie!
