Sunshine Juice

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
I have a juicer, but put this in a blender instead. 1) Bananas don't juice, and 2) raspberries get mostly shot into the disposal container on mine... Anyway, I had thought I had raspberries, but didn't so I used strawberries instead. Very good drink! I basically had it for lunch. The second time I made it (the next day!) I added a container of Greek strawberry yougurt too. Oh, and I had some pineapple juice on hand, so I used that to get the blender going instead of water or milk.

Aunt Norma's Rhubarb Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
First time I've ever tried rhubarb, and this looked like a fairly simple recipe to start with. It was pretty easy to make, and the muffins are delicious!! My husband's first rhubarb experience as well, and I'm happy to say he likes them too!. Bought too much from the farmer's market, so debating whether to make more of these and freeze them, or try a different recipe :)

Raspberry Marinade

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
I've never made a marinade before, but this was great! I actually made kabobs instead of the whole chicken breasts. I cut up the chicken in the morning before work, and made dinner that night, so probably marinaded about 11 hours. I didn't know what rice vinegar was, but saw in reviews that others used cider vinegar, so I substituted that. I also cut back the soy sauce to 1/3 cup. The chicken had great flavor, was super moist, and smelled great while it was cooking on the grill!!

Grilled Cod

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
I don't care for spicy, so I omitted the Cajun seasoning and used some mango-lime seasoning I had. Also used chopped yellow onion since I didn't have any green onion on hand. To season the fillets before hitting the grill, I melted a tiny bit of butter and rubbed in on with my fingers, then sprinkled the seasoning on. It was soooo delicious! Will definitely make again, thank you!!

Slow Cooker Carrot Cake Steel Cut Oats

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2013
Despite so many negative reviews, I tried this anyway. I'm happy I did. The only other time I've made steel cut oats was with a recipe from this site (http://allrecipes.com/recipe/slow-cooker-oats/detail.aspx). I compared the water called for in this recipe to the previous link, and the ratio of water to oats was much greater (probably why people were getting really watery oats.) Here's what I did that didn't really modify the recipe, and I was successful: I only made 1/2 a batch, so I started with 3 cups of water instead of 5. I could only find matchstick carrots at the store, so I put them in my food processor before adding to the crockpot (complaints about crunchy carrots in reviews). When they were done, the carrots were still pretty crunchy, but overnight in the fridge mellowed them out a bit before I had a bowl for breakfast. I checked on the oats hourly, and after about 4 hours I added 1 cup more water. They were done in about 5 hours... That's all I did and it worked great. Even though this is a slow cooker recipe, I still made sure I was home at night so I could check it... Now I know what works for my crockpot!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
I thought these were pretty good and would give this a 4, and my husband loved it and said he would love to have it again! I used salsa because I didn't have taco sauce, and probably only used half of what was called for. We also had the lettuce and tomato but totally forgot to get it out when the chimis were finished cooking!!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2013
Made this crust recipe for a pizza for dinner tonight. I give it a 5, while the hubby says he gives it a 4. We have never made crust from scratch, but we both worked at Pizza Hut for quite a few years, thereby getting lots of experience with dough in general. It was a little dense/heavy, but tasted good and was super easy. Hubby also says he thinks it would be better stretched to a 14" pan instead. We used canola oil because I didn't have olive oil, but Idk if that would make a difference or not. Regardless, keeping the recipe to use again! Thank you!

This was so good! I made it a couple months ago and was coming back to get the recipe to make again when I noticed I hadn't left a review :)

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
I believe this was the first time I've ever had non-box mix brownies. They were different, and a little bit flour-y tastiing, but still really good. The consistency was right in between that of a "cakey brownie" and a "fudge brownie." I didn't make the frosting because I wanted to taste the brownies by themselves since it was my first time. I would make these again, and probably try the frosting.

Simple Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
Deeeelicious the first time around!! They didn't reheat too well for us though. The sauce from the apples gave just the right amount of sweetness.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2013
Pretty good. I think I had high hopes though, because the recipe sounded so good. I might try again with fresh salmon instead of frozen.

Mango Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2013
The flavor was really good, and would have been even better if we had a riper mango. I didn't add the cayenne or the chili pepper because I can't handle the heat lol. We used pinto beans instead of black beans as well.

Easy Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
I couldn't find tahini at the store I went to, and didn't feel like making another stop. Other reviewers said they left it out and it was fine, so I did as well. Likely because of omitting the tahini, it was a little on the runny side, but it still tasted really good and had a decent texture. Next time I will plan ahead and look for tahini to see if it makes a difference.

Fluffy Pancakes

First time making homemade pancakes. This was a great recipe, and easy for someone like me who has been a little skeptical of trying pancakes not in a box! :) Yum!

Chef John's Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
I have only ever made homemade pancakes once (the Fluffy Pancakes recipe from this site) and these sounded really good. I didn't have any lemon juice on hand, and I've never used lemon zest before, so I decided to try the recipe first this morning without going to the store. They turned out great! It was only after we ate them and I was putting the rest of the pumpkin into tupperware that I realized I had used Pumpkin Pie Mix (pumpkin with spices already added) instead. I saw some reviewers said it had too much spice, but even after my error of using the spiced pumpkin and adding all the spices as written, I didn't feel it was too strong. Thanks for a great recipe. I will definitely be buying some lemon juice and lemon zest to try again soon!
