Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
This is a delicious recipe!! 10 stars!! I had never had cauliflower soup until I made this and now I am hooked! I've made it 4 times in the past couple months! I do omit the nutmeg because I don't like the flavor. I toss the cauliflower with whatever seasoning I am in the mood for and also add fresh garlic. I also omitted the sherry just because I didn't have it. I like to mash my cauliflower before adding it to the liquid part and then use my submersion blender to further puree. Perhaps I chose an extra large head of cauliflower this time because I ended up doubling the chicken stock. I just LOVE this soup! I serve mine with a little shredded cheese and a dollop of Greek Yogurt (if I'm really cutting loose I put in some bacon pieces!). The only cauliflower soup recipe I will ever look for!!!!

Tofu Parmigiana

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
This was a GREAT recipe!! I ended up cutting the tofu a little thinner, so using a smaller casserole dish I layered the tofu with the sauce and then topped with the remaining sauce and cheeses. We will be adding this to our rotation of weeknight dishes.

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
After seeing the reviews for this cookie and following the recipe, I thought I would come out with a fantastic cookie. This cookie was awful!! I don't normally bake cookies that call for veggie oil, but I tried this one anyway. I swear you could taste the oil. I couldn't even pawn these cookies off on my 13 year old son and all of his hungry friends!! It was hard and not at all tasty. I consider myself a fairly good cook and baker, but this recipe, along with all of the positive reviews did leave me wondering if I had done something wrong!

Simple Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2011
This is so, so good. One of those dishes where the leftovers just keep getting better! My only changes were to cook the noodles (whole wheat) and omit the water from the recipe and then I also used 1 cup of fat free ricotta with 1 cup of the cottage cheese. I think that, next time, I will use bagged spinach. If do use the frozen again, I will drain it!! I will also use MORE GARLIC :) This is just a great vegetarian recipe. It makes a ton so next time I will probably split it into 2 pans and freeze one!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
These are OKAY. They aren't gross, They just aren't anything to write home about. I don't eat alot of cookies, so when I do I want them to be awesome. My kids are gobbling them up, but I will look for another recipe to try next time I make peanut butter cookies.

Granola

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
This is a great granola recipe. I made my first batch a couple weeks ago and have eaten it everyday since then. I was looking for a recipe with no oil and this fit that bill. I did not use the dates because I didn't have any so I ended up using 3 bananas. Other than that, i stayed true to the recipe. I think the granola got better with time. It's not super sweet. I really don't taste the banana either. I made more today and have added extra vanilla and cinnamon to fit my tastes. This granola is just pure and wonderful. So glad it's the first recipe I tried.

Unbelievable Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2009
I think this is called unbelievable because when you are mixing it up, it's hard to believe that it will taste so good. IT DOES!! I had to use spicy brown mustard out of necessity and also did not use as much olive oil. My picky eating 5 year old loved it. He called it "sweet-sweet chicken". This is going to be a regular in our house!! UPDATE**I doubled the marinade recipe tonight and my husband cooked some of it on the stovetop to reduce it to a sauce. We put it over the chicken and some rice. DELICIOUS.

Casa Dressing

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2009
I omitted the milk, cut back to 1 teaspoon of cumin, added a little garlic and will be using this as a spread on grilled chicken sandwhiches. I am sure with the milk it makes a great Mexican dressing.

Pecan Pie Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
These are delicious!!! I feel guilty eating them for breakfast. We made them in regular sized silicon muffin pan (sprayed with Pam) and had to get them out VERY carefully. Not the most beautiful for presentation, but who cares, they don't last long. I have made them in mini muffin pans and do agree that they are better in those. Also, these are fairly rich, in my opinion, so the smaller muffin pans at least make you feel a little less sinful!! The only thing I have ever changed about the recipe was to add about 1 tsp. of vanilla to the mixture. Today we had some extra "ground" pecan so we mixed it with a little white and brown sugar and spooned over each muffin. Not for the dieter, but great for a pregnant mommy every once-in-a-while!!!!

Garlic Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
This is a great recipe. I don't use the garlic salt, just a little extra fresh garlic and I have made it with or without the paprika. I always try to make enough to keep in the fridge because it's so versatile. We have used it to saute shrimp or to put a "pat" on top of grilled steaks. Being able to control the amount of garlic butter on your garlic bread is fantastic. The store-bought variety generally drip in "butter".

Penne Pasta with Spinach and Bacon

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
I think this was a really good recipe. It just lacked a little seasoning in my opinion. I added extra salt and pepper, but still will probably adjust a little more next time. It definitely helped to serve a nicely marinated chicken breast on top. The seasoning from that added to the pasta. I wanted to give 4 1/2 stars, not 4 because we WILL make this again. ooh, i sprinkled a little grated parmesan on top and it would be really good with a few toasted pine nuts!!!!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
Adding this to my slow cooker favorites list!! My family really liked it. I had a couple extra folks over and really don't like trying new recipes out on company, but needed to. They loved it too and asked for the recipe. I added the peppers at at the end, and i browned the steak with flour and garlic powder. Those were about the only two changes I made. I served it with rice and potstickers from the grocery store. I just had the leftovers for lunch and they are still good the next day!!!

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
These, in my opinion are the perfect snickerdoodle. The came out just right, not too crunchy and not too soft, just right. THIS is the only snickerdoodle recipe I will ever use again!! My little boy and I are going to surprise Daddy with his favorite cookies when he gets home. We used butter flavor crisco for the shortening today and they are delicious!!!

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2009
This recipe was DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!! The only change i made was to saute in some fresh garlic when i "browned" the orzo and then I was forced to use dried basil. Other than that I followed the recipe and was delighted. The kids gobbled it up and I went back for seconds. I've already emailed my sister the recipe and will be adding this to our list of regular sides!! I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

Oven Brown Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2009
I give this a 5 star rating because it is simple and very good. I do only a little tweaking to the recipe, mainly with the time. I usually add at least 1/4 cup extra rice and bake for close to 1 1/2 hours. So much better than "instant" brown rice. We have added this to our regular side dish rotations.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2009
I pretty much followed this recipe with the exception of adding a little ham. It cooked forever and was watery. It did not set up well, like quiches that I have had before. I used fresh, not frozen broccoli. I think it's coming out watery due to the large amount of milk. I made this BEFORE i decided to serve it at a bridal shower and I will NOT be using this recipe. Flavor great. Presentation not so great.

Mariu's Spaghetti with Meat Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
AWESOME!!! My family wanted spaghetti tonight, but I dreaded the regular old tomato/marinara sauce. I am pregnant and could just hear the heartburn calling my name. I saw this recipe and made it according to instructions (no mushrooms though) and I am in love!!! It was great. The flavor was just right. Not too acidic. The kids liked it. Hubby liked it. I made a large batch and we are freezing the rest!!! THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the recipe!!

Puppy Chow

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2008
This was my first go-round with this recipe and it's really good. I need to clean the entire kitchen because it is slightly messy to make(at least the first time!!) Next time I will microwave the chocolate and peanut butter, add a little butter and vanilla and I will mix all together in a MUCH larger bowl. I also like the suggestion of one use that you coat with powdered sugar in a large paper bag. I mixed forever on a cookie sheet (about to go clean that area of the kitchen!!) All I can in the end is that my 4 year old says it's AWESOME, that all the flavors he can taste in it are GOOD ones, and he just told his 2 year old brother that he HAS to come taste the AWESOME stuff that Mommy just made. THAT makes the mess worth it!!!!!
