Blueberry Flax Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2013
Pretty good, could use a little more flavor in the pancake itself, like some sugar and lemon juice, but a solid breakfast recipe.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2013
Based on the amount of salt required in this recipe, it is not edible. Most of the people who gave this high reviews didn't add ANY salt, and the recipe calls for a TABLESPOON of it! I can't believe I was stupid enough to actually put that much in, but there was so much sauce it seemed that it would be ok. Was I wrong!

Spanish Rice Bake

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2013
This was really good, and I found that baking it after the stovetop part wasn't necessary. I just threw a handful of shredded cheese, sour cream and avocado slices on it after the rice was fully done. The cheese melted over the top, then a couple of turns of the pepper grinder, and voila! I used stewed italian style tomatoes which had a lot of flavor, and instead of chili sauce I used a tomatillo cooking sauce. My husband really liked the flavor and texture of this dish! Hearty but not too rich if you don't turn it into a casserole.

Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2013
I really enjoyed this recipe, but I might change a couple of things so I gave it four stars. One thing I would do is use yogurt instead of heavy cream, and use slightly less than what's called for. It waters down the flavor a tad too much. Perhaps just a scant bit less. I would also use red chili powder instead of cayenne next time, and by that I don't mean chili powder that you buy at most grocery stores. It's a specific Indian spice that I only have found at a little mom and pop Indian shop near Pike Place market (for you Seattle-ites). I think this would give the dish a slightly more authentic flavor, but otherwise the ratio and types of spices were perfect and delish! I love the way the onions and garlic are cooked in this recipe, it's just perfect. Also, instead of ghee (don't have any!) I used coconut oil which was awesome because it is also very pure, but I didn't taste the coconut flavor over the other flavors in the dish. It may have added a slight layer of flavor but not enough to be an issue. If I could just master homemade naan, I wouldn't need to go to an Indian restaurant again!

Best Bread Machine Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2013
I actually love this recipe based on the notion that you give the yeast and sugar a head start to work their magic. However, because the salt amount asked for is wrong I had to give this only 3 stars. If you add an extra teaspoon of salt (to make 2 teaspoons total) it's perfect! I also always use one cup of whole wheat flour to give it a little more density and nutrition. Unfortunately, using any more whole wheat flour than that doesn't allow the bread to actually rise enough, so you have to use at least two cups of white bread flour, especially if you are using the rapid rise cycle. It also makes a really excellent white bread loaf if that's what you prefer, but I figure I'll at least pretend to be a little healthy! It helps to buy the yeast that actually says "Rapid Rise" on the label, too.

Classic Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2013
I did not care for this recipe. After desperately trying to tweak it with salt and other savory ingredients to balance out the sweetness I chalked it up as a loss. It was like noodles swimming in sugary cream.
