Parmesan Broccoli Balls

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2005
These were pretty good, but my family has always made them with two 10 oz. packaged of chopped spinach and no onion, and I like those better. Also, I baked a few of these before letting them sit, and not only was the stuffing still hard, but they leaked. Letting the mixture sit is definitely a vital step.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2005
I don't know that I would say this is _exactly_ like packet mixes, but it's very close and very good! It's a little hotter, but I like that. I love knowing exactly what's in it, and I love saving money by using the spices I already have instead of buying the packets!

Hearty Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
I was really hoping this would be better. It wasn't terrible, but we didn't really like it either. Strange and bland taste. I subbed zucchini for the mushrooms and omitted the Parmesan, but still... My husband says lasagna should have meat in it, anyway, so I think I'll keep looking for another lasagna recipe. Thanks anyway.

Insanely Easy Vegetarian Chili

Reviewed: May 26, 2005
This was the first vegetarian chili I've made, and it was better than expected. I served it over baked potatoes with shredded cheese, and my husband (a meat lover) really liked it. I won't rush to make it again, but when I'm looking to stretch grocery money with meatless entrees, this recipe will come in handy. Thanks!

Slow-Cooker Pepper Steak

Reviewed: May 10, 2005
This was good, but it didn't wow me. The soy sauce taste was harsher than I expected. I used three colors of peppers, which made it visually appealing. Also used miced garlic instead of powder, leeks instead of onions, and diced tomatoes instead of stewed. I'll probably make it again, though I won't race to do so.

Orange Glorious I

Reviewed: May 9, 2005
This doesn't wow me, but it is refreshing on a hot day. It's a keeper. :)

Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2005
Definitely very good, though they didn't wow me. I'll probably play around with this recipe.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2005
Maybe I'm being too picky, but while this was very good, it didn't wow me. It wasn't particularly "satiny". Just a yummy way to make a glaze of almost pure chocolate. I'm not sure whether I'll use this recipe again; I'll probably try out some others.

Tea Punch

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2005
Delicious! The mix of juices is so refreshing, and the tea adds a nice depth that you just don't get with other punches. (I used Lipton Vanilla flavored black tea, and omitted the ginger ale.) I'm sure I'll be making this one for years to come. Thanks!

Lemon Ice I

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2005
I have to admit that I just used bottled lemon juice, and I don't think I'd make it that way again. This was certainly different than anything else I've ever had, and _very_ sweet! Also, it took 5 hours in the freezer (stirred every hour or so) before it was even remotely scoopable, and even then it was mushy and melted almost immediately. If I try this again, I'll use more lemon, less sugar, and start it in the morning to freeze all day.

Rick's Special Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2005
This was ok. I'd never made a non-chocolate frosting before, and while this was good, it just didn't wow me. I used half butter and half butter-flavored Crisco shortening. The frosting just tasted more like fat and sugar than anything else, although the flavors had melded better the next day.

Grain and Nut Whole Wheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2005
The best pancakes I've ever tasted! I have to admit that I goofed and used all-purpose flour instead of whole wheat, but the resulting batter was so watery that I added a lot of whole wheat flour to thicken it up. The resulting pancakes were tall and fluffy and full of nutty-grain goodness. I served these with diced fresh peaches (sugared and microwaved for about a minute to make a syrup), and it was delicious! Thank you!

Cheddar and Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2005
Eh. I made this alongside "Amish Macaroni Salad" and "Cooking Light's Macaroni Salad" (from this site), and this recipe came in last. My husband and I found it boring and bland, although the peas and cheddar are a nice touch. I think I'll keep looking, thanks.

Amish Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2005
WOW, was this sweet! This is ok, but far too sweet for me. My husband and I liked it combined with other "bland" recipes. I'll probably integrate this recipe with a few others to find a happy medium.

Cooking Light magazine's Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2005
This was ok, not great. I liked the abundance of veggies and the extras like cheese and ham, but found the dressing pretty bland. Maybe Miracle Whip in place of some of the mayo or sour cream, or some more spicy mustard. I'll probably play around with this recipe.

Champagne Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2005
Just shy of amazing, this is very good! I gave the chicken a rather liberal "dusting" of seasoned flour, which gave a nice thick coating. Since they were still partly frozen, I added some water with the champagne and covered it to keep it simmering longer. Also used plain old 1% milk instead of cream. Delicious! Thank you!

Buttery Cinnamon Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2005
This was good, but it didn't wow us. The glaze was a nice touch. Maybe some flavored whipped cream would help. I don't know whether I'll make this again.

Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2005
Very good and easy, though not the best I've had. I generally prefer honey wheat bread a little sweeter, so maybe I'll play around with it. Thanks!

Chocolate Cobbler

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2005
Incredible! This bakes up like a chocolate brownie floating an a decadent sea of chocolate pudding. One of my new chocolate favorites!

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2005
This was very good. I used vegetable oil (only ~2-3 T) yellow onions, and sour cream. This is a delicious and cheap recipe that is definitely going into rotation. Thanks!
