Blueberry Crumble Bars

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2015
Absolutely delicious just as written! We don't even bother trying to cut these into squares. We just scoop it out into a bowl and add some fresh whipped cream (or vanilla ice cream) and we are good to go!

Banana Chocolate Chip Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2015
Love this recipe! Very moist and flavorful! My changes: I do not add any salt because I use salted butter so no need to add extra. Also, I add 1 tsp. vanilla extract, use 1/2 cup granulated and 1/2 cup brown sugar (as most here have done), and I add 1/2 cup chopped walnuts. Yummy!! Also, I bake this in a glass dish (not a bread pan), and cut and serve it like a coffee cake. It is always a hit with friends and family! :)

Quick Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2015
As written, I was not a big fan. I don't really care all that much for instant rice and throwing it all in the same pot just made it an unpleasant texture. So I made a few changes the second time and really enjoyed this dish! First, I switched to long grain rice and cooked it separately. Meanwhile, I sauted onions and fresh minced garlic in some olive oil, then added the beans (I love beans, so I upped it to two cans), tomatoes and cooked rice and switched the oregano for some fresh basil. Oh so yummy!!!

Broccoli Garlic Angel Hair Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2015
I have made this dish many, many times - it is a huge favorite at our house. But I do not add the pepper flakes - just personal preference. Sooooo delicious!!!

Chef John's Chocolate Lava Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2015
Ahh, delicious perfection! These turned out so rich and light on the outside and all gooey chocolate goodness on the inside! I followed the recipe exactly the first time I made them and they were awesome! The second time, I did add a bit more vanilla extract and liked that even better. I have even made these using almond extract for another taste delight. Thanks Chef John for giving us a little bit of chocolaty heaven in a ramekin! :)

Almond Strawberry Chia Seed Pudding

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2015
This is an easy, delicious way to enjoy chia seeds. I let mine sit overnight, covered in the fridge and it gets even thicker this way. But it will never be the exact consistency of pudding. It has its own unique and wonderful consistency that is more in line with tapioca. I love it!!

Apple Slab Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2015
Delicious! I only made two changes. One, I cut the sugar back to 3/4 cups for the filling and it was just the right amount of sweet (I would up that to 1 cup if I was using a super tart apple like Granny Smith) and I added 1 cup of old fashioned oatmeal to the topping ingredients. I used a 9 X 13 pan. Also, the secret to a truly incredible apple pie is to use a variety of apples in your filling. I generally use a mix of Rome, McIntosh and Gala. But I also use Jonagold and HoneyCrisp on occasion.

Parmesan Crusted Tilapia Fillets

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2015
I have made this many times using both fish and boneless chicken breasts. The key to non soggy bottoms? Easy -- place a cooking rack on your baking sheet and place the fillets on the cooling rack. Ta da! No more soggy bottoms! :) Also, if you find the olive oil to oily in the finished product, you can use mayo or melted butter (just brush on fillets with a pastry brush), then coat with Parmesan mixture. I often cut back on the Parmesan and add in some seasoned bread crumbs since I don't worry about carbs all that much and the little bit you use here won't make much of a difference anyway. This does add a bit more crunch to the finished product as well. I also add a dash of garlic powder to the breading mixture. Just play around with this recipe and tweak it to you and your family's liking. :)

Pineapple Upside-Down Cake VII

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
Great recipe! But make sure you save the juice from the pineapples, pour it into a measuring cup, then add enough water to equal the amount of liquid your cake mix calls for. Also, if you use a pineapple flavored cake mix in place of white or vanilla you will really kick this up a notch flavor-wise! I don't have a cast iron skillet, so I just make this in a 9X13 pan. Delicious!!!

Baked Italian Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2015
A bit on the bland side. The second time I made them, I added 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, 2 cloves of minced garlic, 1/2 of a minced onion and omitted the herbs called for and added in basil and oregano. I also added an egg. Yep, it's a bit distanced from the original recipe but these taste Italian and delicious.

Slow Cooker Beef Stew I

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2015
This recipe does not need another glowing review, but it was good enough that it deserves one! While in reality, this is a good old, basic beef stew recipe, the beauty is in the cooking method - the crock pot AND that it does not call for browning the meat before slow cooking. While I don't add or subtract ingredients from this recipe, I do modify the ones that are there a little bit. I up the Worcestershire to 1 tablespoon and I use two to three cloves of garlic (just love that stuff!). I also dredge the meat in flour (sometimes I do sub corn starch) before placing in crock pot (I just think it is a bit easier this way, so just personal preference, no right or wrong way here). And because I adore cooked celery, I often add three stalks or so. So you see, no real changing of the recipe, just the amounts of some things to suit my family's tastes. Make exactly as is and you won't be disappointed - tweak it a bit to suit you and your family and you have a stellar recipe in your repertoire!

Delicious and Easy Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2015
So simple, but the results are incredible! And 25 minutes in the pot is perfect! It cooks the corn just enough to keep it tender-crisp. Any less and it would taste underdone. Thanks for a great, simple, delicious way to make corn on the cob!

Sugar-Free and Dairy-Free Slow Cooker Steel-Cut Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2015
So simple and delicious!! I often make it just as written, and other times leave out the banana or raisins and add some cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger then squeeze in some honey for sweetness. Someone mentioned leaving out the raisins if omitting sugar is your goal, but it is refined sugar that many of us are trying to cut back on, so go ahead and add those raisins if this is your goal too! This is a recipe that begs to be tweaked to your liking - add the spices/fruits/sweetener of your choice and enjoy! Oh, and it will fill a bunch of jars, they just won't be huge jars! I use the little jelly jars that hold about a cup. But this makes for a very filling breakfast, so you don't need more than a cup in the morning to feel satisfied and get on with your day! :) I also warm mine up then add some Almond Milk - yum!!!

Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2014
Delicious meatloaf!! I love the healthy aspect of this dish, but it has to taste good too, right? Well, this certainly does! The first time I made it, I left out the hot sauce (personal preference - I knew it would not work for my family's tastes so I just left it out) and added some basil - I have to add basil when I use any form of tomato in a dish :) - and otherwise followed the recipe as written and my family and I loved it! Like all cooks, as I continue to make this dish, I tweak it here and there, but overall I follow the general recipe and always get delicious results!

Tangy Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2014
I love the glaze and the taste with the ham is truly amazing! But to be honest, I was baffled by why a fully cooked ham would need almost three hours in the oven. So, I made the glaze and set aside, placed the ham in the oven for about twenty minutes, then I added the glaze. One hour later, the ham was warmed through and the glaze topping was perfectly caramelized and fragrant. If your ham is not fully cooked, then three hours might be necessary, but it truly is not for a fully cooked ham. Then it just needs heated through and time for the glaze to permeate and caramelize. :)

Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2014
As written, it's actually pretty good and super simple. But it wasn't great and I kept wondering what was missing. Then it hit me - vanilla extract! This simple addition totally transforms this to a great fudge!

One tablespoon vanilla extract ruins this recipe. Cut that back to one teaspoon and you have a winner here!
