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!

Feta and Olive Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2005
everyone that eats these loves them. I have used lamb, beef, turkey, and combinations of the above as I have them on hand. All were good. I also used the same recipe to make hamburgers that were to die for, a little lemon-garlic-mayo sauce on top with some sliced onion and lettuce and it's really good. I also second the use of kalamata olives instead of green. Great recipe all around.

My Sister's Favorite Potato Salad...Ever

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2005
too much dressing for the amount of potatoes. i also added more traditional potato salad stuff like eggs, onion, celery, pickle relish. Otherwise it was very good, very dilly.

Old Bay® All American Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2005
I needed a good sauce for some ribs we're cooking tonight. I made a single batch and liked it enough to triple it for dinner tonight. I did add 1 tsp lemon juice to add a little tang to a pretty sweet sauce. I also recommend heating the sauce prior to eating to dissolve the sugar. A yummy, sweet sauce with just a little heat. Thanks!

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!

Big M's Spicy Lime Grilled Prawns

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2005
These were a huge hit at our last cookout - and I'm about to cook them again. Great flavor with the heat from the chiles and the sweet heat of the ginger. Excellent!

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...

Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2005
Um. Don't know where to begin. This soup wasn't good. It tasted like canned chicken noodle soup, and that's not a compliment. I prefer stock or broth, and even canned/boxed is better than boullion cubes!! I also cannot believe the butter (why on earth butter I don't know). Anyway, I was looking for a quick recipe for hubby to make and this was NOT it. not good!!

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.

Cara's Creamy Stuffed Shells

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
OK it's not even done cooking and I'm already giving it five stars - of course I added some things to it to make it extra yummy but this would have been good as written. I did omit the eggs because I didn't think they were needed and added a lot of extra calories. I added some hot italian sausage to ground beef to make 1.5lbs, more than enough for a 12 oz box of pasta. I also omitted the garlic salt and added a total of 5tsp garlic instead. I also added three large handfuls of baby spinach torn up into pieces a little, and about 1/4c parmesan to the mix. It was so yummy I'm lucky it made it to the shells at all! Even my 3 yr old thought it was yummy as is. I had enough for two batches so I put one in the freezer and it should be great there! Thanks for a great jumping off point - it made a special meal I am looking forward to serving to guests!!

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...

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.

Spaghetti Carbonara II

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2006
Really fast and yummy, and easy to make with items I have on hand. My son absolutely devoured it, saying he really like the "pasta with bacon and cheese". The wine definitely makes the flavor of the dish pop, so it's not optional for me!! I will say that I cut the recipe in half and two eggs were just a little too rich for me. I will probably make it again with half the eggs and a generous splash of cream (or evap milk since I always have some in the pantry). Otherwise I would have given it a healthy 5 stars!!

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!

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.

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!
