Sopapillas

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2003
The 8 cups of shortening are for frying. Only 2 tablespoons actually go into the sopapillas.

Cheddar Tomato Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I really messed with this recipe, but it came out very flavorful! First, I added a whole diced onion and green pepper instead of just the few tablespoons the recipe called for. I also added one stalk of diced celery, since I had to buy one for the leaves. Finally, I also added garlic and one, small, grated zucchini in with the veggies because I had a leftover one in the fridge. When I added the flour, I also added some celery salt. When I made the dumplings, I added garlic powder. Dinner was so delicious! The only complaint I have is that it seems to need another can of tomatoes. The only liquid is a 28-ounce can, and that's less than 5 ounces a serving! There's a little bit of liquid for a lot of dumplings. So, I think I'll double the tomatoes next time, too.

Vegetarian Meatloaf with Vegetables

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
My husband asks me to cook this for dinner again and again. I use Oroweat's Oat-Nut bread, and I substitute rosemary for sage. Also, I toss the potatoes and carrots in some extra rosemary before tossing them in the pan. Sooo yummy!

Pecan Cups

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
I used a mini cupcake pan, and I greased & floured it well so I didn't have to use cupcake liners. I ended up with 24 mini cupcakes, and they baked for 23 minutes. Like everyone suggested, I doubled the filling. I had a lot left over. These are so good, though. The crust is flakey and buttery, the filling is crunchy and sweet... my husband raved about them and ate six immediately!

Simple Orange Glaze

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
This glaze was perfect on top of the butter snowflake cookies I baked. It's very citrusy, which I love. I had to use about 4 Tbsp of orange juice instead of 1, but it came out great.

Pumpkin Waffles with Apple Cider Syrup

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
Great recipe! I opted not to make the syrup because I love the flavors of pumpkin and maple together. I did, however, sautee some apples in cinnamon to put on top. This made a LOT of waffles. Our waffle iron makes big waffles (we can only eat one each), and we got 6 large waffles from it. We're going to freeze the leftovers.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
My whole family loved these! Delicious. Ours stayed together well, but next time I'm going to press out some of the water to help the texture and to make it easier to cook.

All-Day Apple Butter

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
This apple butter is out of this world! I chose this recipe instead of another because I didn't have to buy expensive cider or juice for it. I used half granny smith apples, and, for the other half, I used a mix of golden delicious, fuji, honeycrisp, pink ladies, and gala. I cut the sugar down to two cups, and I'm glad I did. It's the perfect sweetest and would have been WAY too sweet with four cups. Also, I took another reviewers suggestion and used an immersion blender at the end of the cooking cycle. It made the butter smooth & creamy.

Individual Chik'n Pot Pies with Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
This pot pie makes me want to go back to every other good recipe I've ever reviewed and make them all 4s! This one stands out; it was so flavorful and delicious! I made a couple of additions: garlic and celery salt. I also had to add more vegetable broth because most of mine seemed to boil away, but that could have been because we're at high altitude. Next time, I'll skip the pepper, but other than that, it was perfect!

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
Very simple and easy, and it tastes so fresh and delicious. I had three large lemons left over from another recipe, so I was able to make a half batch of this lemonade. I have a feeling my husband and I will be drinking it all! I added some leftover fresh mint to the pitcher as garnish. Looks and tastes great. I'll definitely make this again, although I might reduce the sugar next time so it's a little less sweet.

Portabella Basil Sub

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
I loved how fragrant this dinner was. I made a few changes to the recipe; I didn't buy enough shallots, so I added some onion. Also, I used green Tabasco sauce instead of the Jamaican pepper sauce and used white vinegar instead of balsamic (because that's all I had). My husband and I both loved the subs!

Microwave Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
This is much better than I thought it would be. I used a dish towel instead of a paper towel, and it worked very well.

Guacamole

Reviewed: May 5, 2010
Loved the guacamole! I pureed the avocados & lime juice until smooth and then added in the remaining ingredients. After taste-testing it, I added in more onion and cilantro. Yum!

Chewy Granola Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
These taste incredible; I'll never eat the store bought ones again. Also, the aroma is out of this world. My house smells like a mixture of roasted nuts and cookies. I increased the butter from 2/3 cup to 1 cup and also added a pinch of salt, and my granola bars kept their bar shape and didn't crumble. Instead of all chocolate, I did 1 cup mini-chocolate chips, 3/4 cup dried cherries, and 1/4 cup sliced almonds. These are fabulous.

Lemon Curd Tassies

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2010
I had fun making these with my sister and husband. They were surprisingly easy and soooo tasty. We doubled the lemon zest to 1 tsp, but otherwise, we followed the recipe exactly. Our filling thickened without any problems after we increased the stove heat from "2" to "4." However, we didn't have enough shell, so we re-rolled all the dough to be paper thin and still ended up with 17 tassies instead of 24. As a result, we had lots of extra filling! We put the rest into a small pie crust. This recipe still gets 5 stars because it was so yummy!

Penne Primavera

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
I make this recipe regularly, at least a few times a month. It's so easy, flavorful, and it's a good way to get my toddler son to eat his vegetables (yes, even he likes this dish!). I do a few changes. First, I increase the garlic to about four cloves. I mince the garlic and don't discard it. We love garlic! Second, I use at least three cups of vegetable broth. When the dish is almost done, I remove the lid and let the broth reduce for a few minutes until it starts to thicken and is more sauce-like. It adds creaminess and more flavor. Finally, I double the cheese. The cheese is the best part!
