Kale and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
I needed to double the amount of milk because my smoothie was so thick! Also, if you are using a flavored rice/soy milk you don't need the maple syrup to sweeten it. Blend this for MUCH longer than you would a regular parsley or spinach green smoothie, as kale is very fibrous and you want to make sure to get this as smooth as possibly so you aren't crunching as you sip. Just my two cents! Thanks for the yummy recipe, Rice!

Vegetarian Moussaka

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2007
I think I have found a new favorite comfort food!!! This was soooo good! I used extra parm on top so it would be extra cheesy. I also used white boiling potatoes, white onion, peeled the eggplant, and soaked and cooked my own lentils. To everyone who says this takes a long time- not true. This was in the oven with less cleanup than any of the Rachael Ray 30 min recipes I've tried and was super super delicious! I will definitely make again! Thanks for the great addition to my collection! ***Update 3/1/08...second pan made, came out even better than the first. I timed it and it was in the oven speedy fast in just over 1/2 an hour...I use a huge pan and cook a lot of the ingredients together then separate them while I'm doing my layers. I brought in half of the pan to work because I just couldn't eat it all...got rave reviews including one from a guy who claims to dislike anything made without meat. I'm so impressed with this recipe, I've referred it to a bunch of people. YUM!

Dan's Favorite Chicken Sandwich

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
Yum yum yum! I cut recipe to make one sandwich. I made this as a melt on dark rye bread. I used my George Foreman grill to cook the chicken and cleaned it off to grill the sandwich. Was really good and filling too. Tasted like a sandwich you'd buy for $8 in a sit-down restaurant!

Overnight Chinese Daikon Radish Pickles

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2007
I made with cider vinegar because I didn't have any rice vinegar handy. They came out a bit more bitter than I would have expected, but I still loved them! I will make these again! They were great and easy for a bagged lunch! Thanks!

Hobo Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2007
Hobo stew is so wonderful because there are so many different ways to make it...you really can't mess it up. A big pot of it feeds a bunch, and it's hearty and delicious. This recipe was great because it's the basics, and you can go from there. When I make Hobo stew, I literally clean my fridge adding in leftovers (like veggies, even mashed potatoes can be used as thickener, beans, and sauce (mustard, ketchup, salsa...whatever you have on hand!). I learned to make this as a Brownie girl scout at a camp-out and still make it from time to time as comfort food. You can make it in your crock-pot but be careful because depending on the noodle you use it will get soggy and turn into a thick broth if you simmer too long (still tastes good, but becomes thick). Anyways, I love this...and it is great for pot-lucks, camporees, and cold winter nights. Have fun with this awesome recipe!

Amy's Delicious Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2007
This was interesting...be careful the amount of crackers you use or you'll end up with something more like a spicy meatloaf! Very versatile recipe! Pile with lettuce, tomato, onions, cheese and a little BBQ sauce on a multi-grain roll for something that'll pass for a Ruby Tuesday-type burger! I will make this again but try the combo without turkey and mince with fresh shucked quahogs for stuffed quahogs on the half shell. Or I'll do it with tofu for a spicy vegetarian burger. I will also use the seasoning-cracker combo with shredded imitation crabmeat for crab cakes (just double the amount of cracker crumbs and add a little melted butter). Thanks for the recipe, Amy!

Grape Leaves Aleppo

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2007
Robert- thank you so MUCH! These are absolutely fantastic. They are tangy and PERFECT! I found that I didn't need all of the grape leaves though. I only needed about a jar and a half. If you can't find ground lamb meat, ask your butcher to grind up a lamb roast for you, or plan in advance and call some stores to see if they can order you the ground lamb. The lamb taste is essential! Look for the grape leaves in the olive aisle...they actually had them at the Safeway even though I was prepared to go to an ethnic food store for them. I will be sharing this recipe and making the dish again and again!

Cucumber and Avocado Sushi

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2007
Yum! I was really in the mood for some rolls today and when considering the drive to Bennihana, I suddenly remembered I had some nori in my pantry. I actually used the recipe for "Perfect Sushi Rice" because I had some issues in the past with the "sushi rice" I'd bought, but then went back to follow this one. These rolls are incredible! I'm going to add smoked salmon next time...these really satisfied my craving!!!

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
This soup tasted very good while it was cooking, but once it was done it was the consistency of tapioca pudding. 1 cup of flour???? I wish i hadn't used ANY flour. If you are thinking of making this recipe PLEASE read the alterations people have made and follow those. It seems many of the people who rated this so highly changed up quantities and did some ingredient switching. I'm disappointed.

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2008
very good! my boss in a restaurant i used to work in would make these little phyllo dough triangles filled with spinach and feta for wedding receptions we'd be hired to do. He would let the filling "rest" and squeeze out access liquid before baking these. We would also use a brush and brush with oil to help these brown up. Yum!

Scotto Cheese Lasagna

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
Awesome basic cheese lasagna recipe! Careful, it makes a HUGE quantity and overflowed a bit in my dish. The yummy taste was worth the drippings on my oven floor though. Good recipe!

Mom's Yeast Rolls

Cream of Celery Soup

Reviewed: May 30, 2009
Awesome! I was looking for a nice, light soup and also something to use up a head of celery that I'd forgotten about. I made a few changes: I used 1 head of celery, 1/2 a bag of baby carrots, chopped, 1 heaping tablespoon of chopped garlic, and a large spanish onion. I used 2 boxes of chicken broth and skim milk as that was what I had. As soon as I added the milk, I wished I had waited and added it at the end (if you are boiling milk you have to stir constantly so it doesn't scorch at the bottom!). Cooked over medium heat for 15 minutes, remove and ran the soup in batches through my blender. Next time i think I'm going to turn it into a celery, potato, and carrot cream soup and add about 4 large potatoes, cook in the broth till tender, and add 2 cups of heavy cream at the end, rather than milk. Thanks for the nice recipe!

Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese I

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I make this recipe on occasion, only I do things a little differently with the assembly and some of the ingredients. I use 1 box of al dente (cooked) whole-wheat pasta. Add to the crockpot and stir in other ingredients with a few changes. I use 2 cups of mozzarella cheese, and 2 cups of cheddar, 2 sticks of melted butter; and I leave out the milk (use only the evaporated) and eggs. I cook everything on low, stirring every 15 or so minutes until all of the ingredients are mixed, then let it cook on low about 1 1/2 hour longer. It's SO GOOD comfort food and easy to make. I like this more than any oven-baked hard-to-pronounce cheese-based mac dish.

Cheesy Vegetable Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
This wasn't quite the taste that I was looking for. I found the middle layer of mozzarella cheese made the dish seem very gluey. I also think it could have tasted better with some delicious, chunky tomato sauce worked in there! It cooked up nicely and was very pretty, just not quite as tasty as I would have liked.

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies III

Reviewed: May 22, 2011
These were OUTSTANDING! The only changes I made: I used vanilla extract instead of the almond extract and added about 1 1/2 cups of soft raisins. I used Kerrygold Irish butter...the cookies were demolished!!!

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
I thought these looked so pretty from the photos, so I happily planned to make a batch for the holidays. First off, they are soggy and just...offensive on the inside. Also, you need to make the balls, freeze them and then dip them in the chocolate. I think that a lot of the people who said they were hard to dip used melted chocolate chips and not the actually confection chocolate specific for coating things. Melted chips are too heavy (hence people saying they needed the double amount).

Jean's Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
I used ADZELL'S advice and cooked 2 small cornish game hens in my slow cooker. I covered them with water and added about 2 teaspoons of the powdered ginger with rosemary, garlic powder, basil, oregano, and about a handful of dried parsley (I always have a large container of this in my cupboard). I diluted the ginger with some warm water so it wouldn't clump. I cooked the hens for several hours, removed them about deboned them. Then I simmered the veggies with lots of parsley and added to the deboned chicken and broth in the slow cooker. I added some boullion cubes and about 1/4 cup minced onion and some more oregano and basil. I'm going to simmer this overnight and add the noodles in the morning. It's really delicious so far and my kitchen smells great! Just be warned if you go the whole chicken/make your own chicken stock way it's really greasy when you debone!
