Lemon Curd Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2011
This recipe was perfect for using up some lemon curd leftover from the holidays and for my husband's coconut craving. The only change I made was I left out the almonds because of my daughters nut allergy. Delicious! I had no problems and they came out perfectly. Yum.

Chicken and Waffles

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
Let me start by saying that I never would have tried this if it hadn't had 10 5 start ratings. It sounded so disgusting that I had to try it. I never would have thought that these ingredients would taste good at all. I'm so glad I gave it a chance, because it was delicious! I made a few minor changes, I omitted the bacon and cheese. I made the sauce as written and for the chicken, I only reduced the cayenne and black pepper because I'm not huge fan of spicy. I used 6 full chicken breasts sliced into "tenders" and there was plenty of the egg/cream and flour mixtures. I think if you were actually going to use 6 tenders, those could both be halved so as not to waste. The sauce was amazing, and the chicken+sauce+waffles combo was out of this world. Crunchy, sweet, a little spicy. 8 of us ate this and everyone loved it. Also, we had both homemade and frozen waffles, and everyone liked the frozen waffles better.

Pizza On The Grill I

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
This is my new favorite recipe and has gone into regular rotation in my house. I read some reviews and made some changes. I cut the dough into 4 small pizzas and cook them two at a time on the grill. They are easier to manuver and flip, and also we can make four different kinds of pizzas. I brush both sides of the crust with the garlic oil instead of the grill. Shape the dough, brush the top with oil, flip it upside down and brush the new top with the oil, let it cook, flip it, then put the toppings on. My husband and I have it down to a science now. I have made the crust in my bread machine as well as by hand. I have made it as written and have left out the garlic and basil in the dough. I have substituted 1/2 of the flour with whole wheat flour. It comes out beautifully each time. Thank you for this recipe. I think it is the best pizza I've ever had!

Seven Grain Bread II

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2005
I made the mistake of adding the cereal to the water, and the cereal absorbed the water making the dough sort of dry. I then added 1T of water and it was too wet, so had to add a little bit more flour. Because of this or maybe not, it was too big for my machine. It was worth it though, the best bread machine bread I've ever had! Next time I'll put the cereal on top of the flour.

Smooth Sweet Tea

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
This tea is really good. I think the baking soda really makes the difference, I was very surprised it wasn't bitter. I do reduce the sugar, though to about 1/3 cup.

Chinese Broccoli Slaw

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2012
I am going to give this recipe 5 stars even though I didn't follow it exactly, I used the dressing, and that's the most important part. I made this with cabbage instead of broccoli, and left the ramen raw, just crumbled it into the slaw. The thing that makes this slaw different is the soy sauce in the dressing.

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
excellent! I made a few minor changes~I left out the cheese and olives, and added frozen peas and green onion, I also left out the milk. I plan to serve this over a bed of lettuce to make it a "blt" salad. I also think this would be good with chicken in place of the bacon. Thank you for a great recipe!

Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2012
I chose this recipe because it doesn't use lard or shortening, and it was very good. The only difference I made was that I used 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour and 1 1/2 cup white flour. I also mixed it in my food processor and I wasn't dissapointed!

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: May 4, 2011
This was very quick and easy. I followed the directions exactly. I liked the flavor of it, but I think we would prefer it thicker (without the broth) either on top of rice or as a dip for chips, so that's how I'll try it next time.

Quinoa Side Dish

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
This is a delicious recipe and my whole family loved it. I took the advice of other posters and sauteed the onion and garlic while toasting the quinoa. It also tastes great without the lemon. Since it's winter, I used all dry herbs and added them with the liquid. This has gone into regular rotation at my house. Thanks!

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Muffins

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
These are very good. The only changes I made was I left out the nuts on top and I didn't have enough honey, so I substitued 1/2 white sugar for 1/2 of the honey.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2011
Excellent! I was surprised that the top rated waffle recipe here was a whole grain one. The only change I made was I substituted oat bran for the wheat germ. A keeper for sure.

Amazing Italian Lemon Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
This recipe was a cross between two different dinners that two different friends had made me so I tried it. It did turn out delicious, however, I started out following the sauce recipe to the letter. (I omitted the bacon and for veggies I used artichoke hearts, sundried tomatoes, and baby spinach) When I started to get to the end of the sauce making process, it was much much too lemony for me, so I ended up pouring in a whole half pint of cream into it to try and save it. I was very concerned at that point about the amount of fat in the recipe. So what I did was, add the chicken and veggies into the saute pan, and pour in a cup of chicken broth, and let it heat up. I also added some garlic powder. I was then able to use less of the cream sauce. This recipe was a wonderful jumping off point, and we all really liked the meal, however, in the future, I will drastically reduce the amount of lemon, cut the sauce recipe in half with chicken broth, and add some fresh garlic. It did remind me of the two meals made for me by loved ones and that was what I was looking for. Thank you!

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I love this quiche, but in place of the broccoli, I generally substitute greens, usually spinach, but sometimes chard.

Light Oat Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2010
This bread was awesome! I made it by hand, and for the first time, I let it rise with a wet dishtowel covering it. I also used 1/2 whole wheat flour. This recipe is a keeper for sure. Thank you!

Focaccia Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
I had never made focaccia before and wanted to try it. I was very surprised at how easy and fast it was, I followed the instructions and had no problems with it rising. In the future I will leave out the basil until when I have access to fresh, though. I can see this as a starting point to many different variations.
