Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2014
Good soup! Even my us and who doesn't like butternut squash said it was good. I made it once with a pinch of curry and it overpowered it. The second time I made it as written and it was much better.

Apple Dumplings II

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2014
This was so good! I made this like a roll (like a pumpkin roll) instead of individual dumplings I diced the apples and rolled out the dough and put the apples on it and the placed the entire roll into a 9 x 13 dish and poured the sauce over all of it. There wasn't enough dough to cover the top of the apples and there were lots more apples than would fit into the roll. Even so dumped I all the apples and sauce in the pan. It wasn't pretty, but it was delicious! Next time I might make more dough to make it look prettier, but even if I keep it as written the proportion of apples to dough was correct. I did not use the food coloring.

Spinach Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2014
I loved this recipe because it uses spinach, but tastes like basil. I am too cheap to buy pine nuts so I used walnuts and it's still delicious! I didn't use all the oil because it didn't seem to need it. I also made it with sage and it's delicious too. The basil is better, but it's a good way to use up sage.

Blueberry Coffee Cake III

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2013
Yummy! I took the suggestions of other reviewers - floured the berries before folding them in. Added vanilla and added 1/4 cup more of milk and didn't use the cinnamon in the topping. Two thumbs up!

Spinach Salad with Honey Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
This is (obviously) a sweet dressing and is oh so good for a fruit and nut salad. I usually add whatever fruit I can chop up and the sprinkle the tossed salad with shredded coconut. It's a salad that tastes like dessert. Yum!

Cherry Angel Cake Roll

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
Tasty, but the cake roll stuck to the pan and made a terrible mess to what should be an easy recipe.

Cinnabun Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
5 stars for flavor, 2 stars for appearance. I'm going to try these again because they are tasty, but they definitely didn't look like the ones in the pictures. Next time, I'll try adding more flour and cutting them into 1/2 inch slices, instead of one inch slices. **update** I've made these many time because they taste GREAT, but they spread like crazy and they don't look anything like the picture. I'm an experienced baker and can't figure it how to master these.

Quinoa with Sweet Potato and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
I like all the ingredients in this, but it needs a sauce so something to make it interesting. The cayenne adds heat, but other than that there isn't anything that gives this a lot of flavor.

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2010
very good. I used cubes of butternut squash instead of sweet potato because it's what I had on hand and it's delish. I also used fish sauce instead of the salt. The crazy thing is that you don't taste the sweet potatoes (or squash) at all - it just tastes like a thai dish. Yummy!

Roasted Sweet Potatoes & Onions

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2010
yum!! I reduced the oil to 2 Tbsp and will try to reduce it more next time. I did not use the amaretto and they were delicious! Thanks for sharing!

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
I know it's a faux pas to make changes and review the recipe, but I did tweak this to make it more heart healthy. I substituted ground flax seed meal for half the oil, I used 1 1/2 cups of white whole wheat flour and 1/2 cup of oatmeal. It's a great dense banana-ey bread

Easy Apple Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This was more like a bread pudding . . . perhaps I should have baked it longer, but the way I served it, it was more the consistency of a bread pudding. I agree that it's an apple cake, more than a coffee cake. The taste was pretty good, but not my preference.

Curried Cashew, Pear, and Grape Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
A good & interesting salad. I added garlic to the dressing as advised by another and only used 1 Tbsp of the mustard in the dressing.

Peppery Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
I made this recipe with cubes of pepper jack cheese and added fresh rosemary and chopped garlic. It's delicious and decadent! I think that the slow rising time is due to the cold sour cream and egg that are added to the yeast. If the sour cream is warmed up before adding it should speed up the rising time. I wouldn't heat the egg though b/c that would cook it.

California Italian Wedding Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2008
I added pepper & lemon juice to this and I think it really helped. I used bouillon instead of chicken broth and I think that was a BAD idea! I'll try again with chicken broth.

Spicy Basil Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
This was really good and really easy. The one thing is I would change it to garlic salt to taste. It was SO salty that I ended up adding a can of coconut milk. The coconut milk made it really good too though. I too used fish sauce instead of oyster sauce b/c I had it on hand.

I marinated all the veggies as suggested by other reviewers. I definitely would top with Parmesan cheese.
