Russian Tea

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
Reminds me of my childhood! My mother used to make this for us every year when the weather started to cool. I like all-spice and nutmeg in place of ground cloves. And I added a little more of the Tang. Delish!

Beef Gyro

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2013
The flavors in this recipe were great, but my tzatziki sauce was very watery! I ended up doubling the amount of yogurt and that helped, but it was still quite thin. I will definitely make this again, but I will have to do some tweaking of measurements to fix the sauce.

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
This recipe was a big hit with the whole family, even my pickiest eater. We served it on Italian rolls with sauteed onions, garlic and assorted bell peppers. I added a little horseradish sauce while my husband preferred deli mustard. Hearty and delish!!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2013
Moist, chewy and delicious! I would avoid storing in an airtight container, however. Mine got a bit mushy by the next day. Without the icing they may have stored better.

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2013
The flavor was good, but I wish the sauce was thicker. Next time I am going to use some of the tips and use all marsala and omit the sherry. Also, I am going to remove the chicken from the pan and make the sauce thicker with a bit of cream.

Funnel Cakes

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2013
I am obsessed with funnel cake!! This didn't seem quite the same as the pro's make it, but it was still really good. I didn't have enough oil for the 8 cups to fry it, so next time I'll be sure to use all 8 and see if that changes anything. The kids were in heaven when I made this, it was a real treat!

Smashed Cauliflower Side Dish

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2013
Great way to prepare cauliflower! I did substitute garlic salt for fresh garlic in the interest of time, but it was a bit salty. Next time I will either omit the regular salt or go for the fresh garlic. A real crowd pleaser with my family!

Cooked Pumpkin

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
I didn't cut up the pumpkin until after cooking. It was very easy to cut at that point. I pierced it with a fork several times and then roasted for an hour. The stem came out easily with a pull. I mashed the pumpkin and used it for pumpkin bread and pumpkin cheese cake. Next time I will puree it to get a smoother texture.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2013
I substituted fresh roasted pumpkin for the canned and it turned out fabulous. I also used a home made vanilla and cinnamon spice whipped cream. It was a HUGE hit! I will make this again on Thanksgiving for sure.

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2013
This meatloaf is very moist and my family loved it! I was skeptical because meatloaf doesn't have the best reputation. But I had ground turkey that I needed to use and I am so glad I tried this recipe. It was such a hit I will be making it regularly. I think I am going to attempt a sauce or gravy to accompany it and serve over mashed potatoes as well.

Chicken Breasts in Caper Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
Very tasty and quick! I love lemon piccata and this is a faster way to incorporate all the same flavors. I added a squeeze of fresh lemon on the cooked chicken and it made the flavor really pop! Nice go to for a week-day dinner!

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
Tasty, but a little thick for my taste. I'll try to thin out the batter next time.

Orange, Honey and Soy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2014
This was a big hit with my family, even my pickiest eaters! I used leftover meat from a roast chicken and fresh garlic and it still turned out great. Definitely needed a side of veggies to make it a complete meal. This was quick and easy and will be a regular at our house!

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2014
This was a good tasting dish, but I think it needed more vegetables. Next time I will probably add some zucchini, eggplant and/or spinach.

Eggplant Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
My husband and I loved this sandwich! The tips for preparing the eggplant were very helpful. We peeled, sliced and salted the eggplant and let it sit for about an hour. Then we rinsed and patted it dry before lightly brushing the olive oil onto the slices and broiling them. I added creamy goat cheese instead of feta to mine and it was amazing! Also, one comment suggested briefly sauteing the garlic before adding it to the mayo. I tried this and it was a great flavor! Can't wait to make this again...maybe with fresh mozzarella!

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2014
This was a fresh, light sandwich filling akin to a tuna salad. Even my kids ate these sandwiches without a second thought. It is a nice base and you can easily customize it with veggies and toppings you like.

Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2014
This burger was good and with all the traditional burger toppings, it was very flavorful and filling. However, the black bean flavor just dominates the dish. Not something I could cook very often, but a nice alternative to a beef burger.

Easy Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2014
I'm not a huge fan of canned tuna, but my family and I are trying more vegetarian options and tuna seemed inevitable. Surprisingly, everyone really enjoyed these patties! I ate mine more like a crab cake; with fresh lemon and cocktail sauce. Where as my husband and kids ate them like sliders; on fresh rolls with lettuce, tomato, onion, and mayo. None the less, this is a delicious and healthful meat-free meal option. We will make this again for sure!

Ham Bone Chowder

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2014
Very tasty! I would hesitate to call it a "chowder" though. Not very creamy. But it was a big hit just the way it is!
