Blueberry Lemon Breakfast Quinoa

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
This was really good! It was fresh yet rich- tasting, and the sweetness from the blueberries and syrup was perfect! Topped with toasted, slivered almonds instead of flax seed. A great new way to have quinoa!

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!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
Great! Good lemon and garlic flavor. I'd like to try other flavors, as well. Used the advice of reviewer SonjaL and blended it in my mini food processer. One can of chickpeas is about 1.5 cups. I stuck with just paprika and took this to a class party. We liked it and I enjoyed that it is healthy and tasty.

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!!

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!

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!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Great muffins! They are moist and delicious. I made these with 1 tsp vanilla and some cinnamon and nutmeg added to the batter. I also used two and a half large bananas instead of three. The crumb topping was delicious! It made the muffins. This recipe makes 12 medium muffins in a standard muffin tray. A great recipe, I will definitely use it again!

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2013
Very tasty! They devoured them at international fiesta today. I don't know if I'm just lucky or I made my puffs a bit smaller but I didn't poke holes and they didn't sink. I used french vanilla and they were sublime. Will try drizzling with chocolate next time.

Excellent and Healthy Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2013
Delicious! My mom admitted that the texture was better than Jiffy box mix by a lot. I used vanilla yogurt and with the written amont of sugar it would be perfect.

Grilled Cod

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2013
Good fish, but mine turned out rubbery. I don't know if it was my changes or that I used a gas grill. I subbed old bay instead of cajun seasoning and lime juice instead of lemon. The flavor was good, though. My process for a nonstick grill worked well, though- heat up and scrape the rack, then wipe the grate with an oil- dipped paper towel several times. Maybe next time I'll be sure I'm not overcooking the fish.

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

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!

Chocolate Hazelnut Fruit Crepes

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
Wonderful crepes! Chocolate hazelnut with the fruit and slightly crispy crepe creates an unforgettable taste. I used store- bought crepes- which I'm sure are less good to homemade ones, but still taste good nonetheless- and filled them with bananas with strawberries. I found the medium heat was too high to heat for 90 seconds, I think medium low might work better. Wonderful recipe!

Seminary Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
A hearty breakfast muffin, really delicious! I made them with oatmeal oats and omitted the nuts. I also would have reduced the salt for my taste. This made 11 tasty and healthy muffins that my whole family liked. Could anyone figure out why they were named Seminary? A great start to any day!

Soft Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
Awesome cookies!! With a rich, chocolaty, brownie- like taste, these cookies are sure to please. I made these yesterday, adding 1 cup chocolate chips to the batter before chilling, and they turned out great. 1 inch balls make bite- size cookies, so I recommend making them bigger. They were exactly what I was looking for and I will definitely make this recipe again!
