Egg in a Hole

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
Eh, not worth the trouble. Just make an egg over medium and serve toast on the side and you get the same thing. In my book, the only thing that would have made this worth the trouble was if my kids thought it was a fun way to eat an egg and toast.

Southern Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
A good, simple and easy hollandaise. I can whip this up quickly for eggs benedict, which is what I wanted it for.

Sunshine Morning Muesli

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2013
one of my favorite breakfasts. I mix up several containers of the dry ingredients and then just add the yogurt the night before. Great breakfast when I'm in a hurry. I also had 1/4 C ground flaxseed.

Blondies II

Reviewed: May 22, 2013
We liked it - but I wasn't as wow'ed by these as some of the other reviewers were. They were just so-so in my opinion. But easy to put together. I used my individual browning pan to make them and this recipe made exactly 24. I did skip the frosting tho. In the end, I think I'll keep looking for a blondie recipe that I can't live without.

Artichoke Spinach Dip

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
I thought this recipe was good. I'm not a huge fan of dips with cream cheese and sour cream bc of the fat content, but I was in a pinch and needed something fast. I took some of the suggestions of the other reviewers cut the recipe in half. Even half recipe makes a very large portion (enough for a group of 10 I'd say). I also sautéed garlic in the butter, added lemon juice, kosher salt. I added a couple splats of Tabasco, which didn't really add much to the flavor. It could have used more if you wanted a little more zing. I recommend skipping the Worchestershire sauce that another reviewer suggested. The flavor didn't really mesh with the other flavors well. Overall, it was easy to prepare, keeps well in the fridge and reheats easily.

Easy Pizza Sauce III

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
I liked this recipe. I'm kind of finicky about pizza sauce - not too tomato-y, not too spicy, herby or sweet. I followed the recipe exactly and it was easy to prepare and I found it quite delicious. Thats not to say that I'm a pizza sauce connoisseur. I just know what I don't like in my sauce. I didn't find it too commercial tasting either. Just a good basic sauce. And I always try to make whatever i can instead of buying.

Strawberry Cake Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Very easy and fast to prepare. It saved me a trip to the store. I only needed enough to fill an 8" round cake, so I made half the recipe (plus that was all the strawberries I had). The filling is a little too runny to fill the cake without a dam of icing, but it still held up well enough. Was wonderful with chocolate cake.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
These are good, but honestly I have a cream scone recipe that is far simpler and more authentic.

Creamy Pesto Gnocchi with Italian Sausage

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2012
This recipe needs some serious work. I made this because I wanted something new and I had all the ingredients to make this. To be polite it was not tasty at all. My biggest problem is that I did not like the texture combination of the sausage with gnocchi. I find that pesto on its own is quite delicious and adding the cream adding nothing to the recipe except calories and fat. If I were to do it again, I'd eliminate the meat and cream and add a heaping amount of fresh veggies.

Fire Roasted Vegetarian Gumbo

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
this recipe needs serious work to be anything edible. The vegetables and spices compete with each other too much to make a complimentary dish. back to the drawing board.

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
I'm always looking for fresh vegetarian or vegan dishes and this one is fabulous. I loved the contrast in crunch from the cucumbers and creamy avacados. The lemon and limes juices were terrifically balanced. DH and I split this for dinner one night- very filling and satisfying.

Vegan Bean Taco Filling

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
This is too spicy as it is for us. We prefer the taste of the store bought taco seasonings so I just used the 1 teaspoon each of salt and paprika and 2 teaspoons of chili powder and omitted the cumin. I didn't like the cornmeal texture either - too gritty. This recipe is a good jumping off point to develop my own bean filling recipe though.

Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
Excellent. I love this fresh take on the classic. Fresh, unprocessed, healthy, natural. Can't wait to make it again. Next time I'll season it with salt and pepper to enhance the flavor. Otherwise, it's perfect.

Cheese-Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
We liked the filling. I mixed the bacon in with the cheese and left the jalapenos whole, put them on the BBQ grill. But in my opinion, the peppers' flavor over powered the filling. Next time, I think I will parboil the peppers as suggested by another reviewer to reduce their heat.

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
This was delicious and very easy. I'm not a huge fan of peanut butter flavored dishes, so I only used 1 T peanut butter and it was great. Oh, and I used cabbage instead of romaine.

Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Pie

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I gave this only 3 stars because it tasted too much like a pie you would find in a diner. We wanted something with more of a sophisticated coconut flavor. I thought the coconut flavor was overpowering. Also, mine didn't set, but that could have been my fault.
