Norris' Sesame Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 10, 2013
Second review, I made it again this time I had sesame seeds, and they were definitely a nice addition. The first time I used about a half teaspoon of pepper flakes, this time I added a whole teaspoon. That's about where I like it. The biggest change we made, which I think is the perfect balance, is using 1/4 cup sesame oil instead of a half cup. This made room to experience more of the flavor profiles, and other agreed.

Sweet Pea and Noodle Salad

I make a variation of this recipe regularly, I add whatever I have around, tuna, pepperoni, diced zucchini, tomatoes, green peppers, carrots, celery, cubed avocado (if you're going to eat immediately), just about anything.

Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
This was a sad nasty mess. Very disappointing. Even after coloring it dark green it had a sweaty white film on it. I added a TON of sugar (another half almost!) and then it was crackly and just terrible. Not pretty, and not tasty. My son gave me a pitty "it's good." but I could tell he just didn't want to hurt my feelings. I couldn't roll it this enough because it was flaking apart, so it wasn't even pretty.

Macaroni Meatball Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
This is SO good. The only changes I made were using home canned tomatoes (canned without salt), so I had to add a little extra salt, and I didn't have any "Italian seasoning" blend, so I used Basil, Oregano and Thyme. I was a little worried it would be excessive on the seasonings, but it's just right. Oh, and I cut back on the meatballs a bit. I added 18 instead of 25. It's not lacking. I'm tempted to add white and kidney beans and some corn, and maybe some sun dried tomatoes next time.

Fresh Pea Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2012
Instead of shallots I used an onion, instead of just water I added a 14 oz. can of chicken stock, with 1/3 cup water, and I didn't have any cream, so I added about 2 tablespoons of cream cheese. I may have over blended it a bit. It had a bit of a dryness to it. Not too thick, but the dry side of peas. I added about 1/4 tsp or garlic powder, and bit of sea salt and this helped it along immensely. Next time I'll add more veggies, probably some potato and add some fresh garlic to the shallots, to give it more body, and probably no water, just broth and cream.

Very EASY and was a hit. I'll skip the olives next time for the kids, but there will be a next time.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
This was good, it rose a little too much, causing some toppings to slide off, and was very filling, more than restaurant pizza, but it was very tasty and easy to work with.

Stuffed Green Peppers I

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
I wish I could give this 5 stars, but it just wasn't a hit. I did add diced peices from the tops I cut off into the stuffing. It was good, but we ended up scooping out the filling and just eating that and the soup.

Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
LOVE! This is amazing as is, no need to doctor, it's rich enough if you have ripe veggies. The flavors together are amazing. Thanks Maplebird!

Homemade Mac and Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
I offered to my little boy that I'd make him ANY treat he wanted if he hurried through his chores Saturday morning, I was expecting cookies, cupcakes or bars, but he asked for "real mac n cheese, not from a box!" "Umm, OK." So I popped onto my handy allrecipes app, and once again you pulled through for me! I was really worried because every time I'd ever had homemade mac it was at a buffet with way over cooked noodles, or when a family member made it, it was just dried up noodles with melted and dried cheese, with milk literally poured over the top of it. Needless to say I was pretty nervous. I didn't have Parmesan, or cheddar, just some Colby and Jack, and I didn't have bread or bread crumbs, but I went ahead with the modified recipe, buddy was charging through his chores! I doubled the recipe and baked it in a glass 9x13 casserole. I made sure to cook the noodles al dente, when I popped it into the oven my son finished his chores and pouted looking at the empty pot, he'd though he'd missed out, but he was thrilled to see it baking away in the oven. We had a big sit down lunch, all 5 of us, and everyone filled their bellies while ohhing and awwing about the yummy pasta. There was plenty left for dinner, so I mixed it with the left over California mix steamed veggies, and there was dinner! Success! Thanks Allrecipes!

Cheddar Cheese Straws

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
You're gonna have to get your hands in there, so just be ready for that. Don't bother putting the dough on the counter, just roll between your hands. This filled a half sheet, for anyone wondering about the output. It's not 48 servings, it was about perfect for my family of 5, two small appetites and 3 big ones... I made them a little fat because I couldn't picture "slightly thicker than pencil." I should have gotten over myself. I had to bake for 8 minutes and then broil to brown them up cause the rest of dinner was getting cold. Next time I won't add so much cayenne (I kinda' did a heaping 1/4 tsp), and add some garlic powder to round out the flavors. They were a giant hit, the kids couldn't get enough, and it's added to the short list of food ideas.

Eggplant Rounds

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
I used olive oil, instead of veggie oil. I added flour and not just cornmeal and seasoning salt instead of chilli powder and oregano. It was a hit. I also caramelized an onion and served them with that on top as a side to spaghetti and marinara. So tasty. Hubby and I couldn't get enough, but the kids were too nervous about the egg part of eggplant.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
This was great! I used a little less hot sauce and chilli powder, and it was still amazing. This is one of those things whre the natural flavors are what you taste at first, but then the heat builds and kicks you when you're almost done eating. Will make it with Thai Chilli sauce next time. Oh I had to make my own bread crumbs this time, easy and quick process.

Ranch Bean Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
Yummy! This would be best served in a fondu or small crock pot to keep it warm and runny. BTW, like many other reviews, I also halved the ranch, much more and the other flavors would have been lost, half was still really strong. I also happened to use mozzarella, because that's what I had handy at the moment, and it was nice.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
So yummy! I love that we can switch out the banana for a can of pumpkin, or a cup and a half of zucchini, and you totally change up the bread without too much work. Love it!

Amish White Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
AMAZING! I learned to bake bread using this recipe, and even though I've tried many other recipes, I always come back to this one. Whether for a slightly heavy free form loaf to pull apart for fondu, shape into roles, make into monkey bread or cinnamon rolls, or for the loaf pan, when cut after completely cooled this is our sandwich bread. I usually switch out half of the flour with whole wheat, and my kids love it, and they usually frown at store bought wheat bread.
