Plain Cake Doughnuts

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
These were ok, but not as great as I had hoped reading the reviews. I was concerned the dough would be too wet after many commented on needing to add more flour, so I substituted 1/4 c. Sour cream for half of the milk. The consistency was fine, even a little dry until kneading. The biggest challenge was cooking. If I heated the oil to 375 like the recipe stated, the outside burned immediately while the inside was raw. I finally got the temperature down enough to let them cook longer for the inside, but then they seemed like they'd soaked up a lot of oil as well. Overall, not what I'd hoped for.

Smothered Filet Mignon

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2012
Made these for a special anniversary dinner party and they were amazing! The flavor the marinade added was subtle, and didn't take away from the premium cut of a filet. I Carmelized the onions a couple hours ahead of time, which I would recommend as they take quite a while. The flavor they add is well worth the time . I substituted Feta for the blue cheese, just a taste preference, but it turned out really good as well.

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2011
Really great flavor with the spinach and spices, though I omitted the nutmeg, not a fan. I also used fresh shaved parmesan instead of grated for a little more flavor.

Baked Spaghetti

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
Made this vegetarian by substituting some TVP (textured vegetable protein, Bob's Mill brand) for the ground beef. Also followed other's suggestions and used ricotta instead of cottage cheese. I used a 32 oz. Jar of spaghetti sauce and it was fine. The whole family loved it, even my SUPER picky daughter.

New York Cheesecake II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2009
Following other suggestions, baked at 400 for about 15 minutes, 200 for 45; then let sit in oven a couple hours while oven cooled. Served with a rasberry sauce made simply by crushing raspberries, pressing through a strainer to remove seeds, adding a little sugar as desired. Received rave reviews at Thanksgiving dinner I brought it to.

Blueberry Breakfast Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2007
Perfect way to use fresh blueberries in season! The sauce cooks up quickly and easily. I served it on top of Bob's Red Mill 10 Grain Waffles - fabulous!

Vegan Fajitas

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
First vegan recipe I tried - a true winner! My kids were at first appalled - "Where's the meat?" but they are still asking me to make them again a month later. I skipped the vinegar, oregano and chili powder, instead opting for lemon juice and ground cumin to give it a more mexican flavor. I also cut back on the amount of oil. Served with homemade fresh guacamole and flour tortillas - vegan's not so bad after all.

Black Bean and Rice Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2007
One of the best vegan recipes I've tried yet! My kids even loved it, which makes it a 5star plus! I used red/orange peppers to give more color, omitted red pepper flakes, white rice instead of brown, topped with red enchilada sauce. I made some without cheese on top (vegan) and some with - they were both devoured. Made for a dinner party of 8 with 3 of us vegetarian, and everyone raved.
