Orzo with Kale

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2014
I made it and then added a touch of red pepper flakes for a little punch. Incredible. All four kids ate it with gusto, all adults devoured. Cannot say enough.

Liege Belgian Waffles with Pearl Sugar

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2013
Really easy, dad , and so delicious!! I decreased the butter by a third and would still decrease it more, it was so rich. The dough was a softer dough than the overnight recipes I have used in the past, but so much better tasting. I had bought Lars sugar pearls at ikea.

Beignets

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2013
Delicious! Only comment is that I made a half batch and it makes a TON of beignets. Not sure what a portion is, but I probably could have made 50 or so from a half batch...

Pocket Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
so much fun for me and my 7 year old son to make our own pita! These came together very smoothly, and out of a double batch we only had three that didn't puff up properly (those were the ones my son rolled out, surprise!). Letting them rest between making them into balls and rolling them out made them much better. I did change out for 1/3 whole wheat flour, very good.

Veronica's Apple Pancakes

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2013
LOVED this!! I made it with extra cinnamon and it was delicious. I'm trying it tonight with some applesauce instead of all apples because I am out of apples and I bet it's as delicious. Love it!

White Cake with Lemon Filling

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
cake tastes okay. nothing special. but after making it twice it sticks in the pans no matter what I did. I greased liberally, I floured and greased, in nice, heavy duty non sick pans and it stuck Badly both times. it is an easy cake for my kids to help with making since it' s made differently than most recipes, but I will not make it again. there are better recipes on here.

Chicken Penne Florentine Bake

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Meh. I needed a quick casserole and I had everything (mostly) to make this. I didn't have mozzerella, I had havarti. It's okay. Kids ate it but didn't love it. I doubt I'll make it again. it was super easy and might work well for a family with pickier eaters for a meal to share.

Chef John's Pumpkin Creme Brulee

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2012
I knew it would be like this, but I missed the silky creamy custard of a true creme brulee. It was delicious, don't get me wrong, but the pumpkin texture just made it like a fancy crustless pie. Nothing to be done for that with this recipe, and my kids thought the torch was the coolest thing ever...

Indonesian Satay

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
delish - made it exactly as written except with chicken tenders instead of cubes. Didn't know how I felt about the tomato sauce in the marinade, but it made a really delicious tender chicken. The sauce made my kids really happy - they said it tasted just like the sauce at the thai restaurant they like! I would make this again with no changes, it was really good!

Apple Strudel Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
I added some spices to the batter because I like apples with spices. I also reduced the butter and added applesauce, which resulted in a delicious moist apple-y muffin.

Black-Eyed Pea Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
I give this recipe as is 3 stars. It has no spices at all and is terribly bland. I give it 5 stars with some cayenne, basil and thyme, with a dash of file at the end. My kids ate it without complaint and I enjoyed it, too.

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
tried this and kids and husband alike LOVED it. I subbed sunflower seeds for pine nuts, and added a touch of chipotle pepper (dried) to rub for salmon.

Pasta with Roasted Butternut Squash and Sage

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
it is a good jumping off point - I can't rate it a 5 because I changed too much of it. I would rate my version a 5 though! I subbed 1c cooked chicken breast and 4 slices of bacon, chopped, for the sausage. I also added in 2c baby spinach that I cooked in the strainer when I drained the pasta. I also added 2T asiago cheese. My kids devoured it, and I loved it, too. Went great with a nice merlot.

Carrot Cheesecake Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
really enjoyable muffin. Made them as instructed except I added some ground ginger and some nutmeg because I like things a little spicy. Very tender and really yummy. I will definitely make these again, they look very fancy with the cheesecake filling!

Buttery Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2006
were great straight from the oven but didn't hold up well to store. I think I will have to warm them to make them good again. Hubby loved them, and I will make them to go with beer and spicy mustard for octoberfest.

Plum Blueberry Upside Down Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2006
great treat! I used pluots instead of plums since I had them on hand and changed the vanilla extract to lemon extract and added lemon peel to the batter and lemon juice to the fruit. I liked the bright taste that the lemon cake had with the sweet fruit. Great recipe!
