Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Recipe was easy to follow and they came out beautifully but.... they immediately fell completely flat! I had an old recipe I used for many many years (that I've misplaced) and I never once had a single puff fall. I'm really disappointed. I will try to find my old one for the next batch.

Polish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
This was amazing!! I omitted the allspice, basil, season salt and cream of chicken soup though. I did use everything else and added a couple cubes of Knorr bouillon to the chicken while cooking. For the dumplings (per another reviewer) I used 2 cups reserved broth instead of the water but otherwise I followed exactly the flour and seasoning. Omg it is so delicious! The dumplings are tender and a little chewy (perfection), the chicken and soup was very flavorful and it thickened up nicely. My family LOVED this dish! My husband who normally doesn't eat alot of chicken (and hates dumplings) had several bowls lol and my three teenagers had multiply servings as well. Who can ask for more? :D This is definitely something I will make again and again. Thank you so much for sharing!

Creamiest Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
This is the BEST homemade rice pudding recipe I've tired. It tastes amazing! I followed directions exactly (but cooked a little longer to thicken more). My kids (teenagers) were standing around the kitchen waiting for it to cool enough to eat lol. A keeper! I'll be making weekly. Thanks for sharing!

Apple Oatmeal Crisp

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
I make this recipe at least once a week. I LOVE it!!! I use any fruit I have on hand, including canned. I cook the fruit (or heat in the case of canned) per the recipe and crumble the topping across the top and bake. Absolutely fantastic. To those who said it was too dry, simply add some extra butter and problem solved. Rich and delicious every time. =)

Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
As a new vegetarian, I'm always hunting for new hardy recipes. This is a really wonderful dish! I followed the directions exactly (except used veggie broth) and it came out great. I don't usually like sweet dinners but this was surprisingly good and I will make it again. My only concern was that it came out a little dry for my taste. Next time I will add some diced apples and maybe a little more of the butter/sugar mixture in the squash. Even if you don't like 'sweet' dinner food, don't be afraid to try this. The cumin and raisins add a great dimension to the dish and combined with the natural sweetness of the acorn squash, it just works. Thank you for this recipe!

Emerald Green Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
I didn't like this at all. I followed directions exactly and found it sour tasting (vs rich) and for some reason celery was the predominant flavor. I used regular veggie broth but it would have been better with low/no salt broth. Some veggies were too crisp while some were soft and even with extra cheese, it was very....um...canned soup tasting. After reading all the 5 star reviews I was expecting a great meal but it was really disappointing for us. I will not make it again.

Michelle's Coconut Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
I gave this 3 stars to be fair but as I made it (vegetarian) I didn't care for it. Maybe it needed the chicken to bring another element into the dish so I can't say it was bad.

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
I was looking for a homemade mac-n-cheese recipe like my grandma used to make. I found this recipe to have the consistency of school paste. I followed the directions but between the sharp cheddar, strong Parmesan and the mustard, it was SO sour! I have no problems cooking a rue so I know that wasn't the problem with the consistency but for some reason it was too thick and way way too sour. Neither my 3 teens nor my husband and I could even eat it. Disappointed it was such a waste of good ingredients (and money).

Best-Ever Texas Caviar

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
I gave this 3 stars because I changed up the recipe to my own tastes. I made the sauce but after tasting it, the sauce is just way too sweet! Who wants sweet and sour Mexican food? I prefer spicy, salty, lime flavor myself. I didn't use canned beans (used dried and precooked myself), used fresh corn, roasted my own green chili's on the grill, added fresh diced avocado, white onions, fresh garlic and cilantro. I used a drizzle of olive oil, lots of fresh lime juice and some juice from a can of jalapenos I had on hand. I completely skipped the sweet bell peppers, sweet red onion, sweet vinegar, and sugar. Made my way, it was fantastic! Served it over barley I had precooked and then sauteed with garlic, CA chili and cumin. It made the best taco's ever! Thanks for the recipe. As a relatively new vegetarian I've been struggling to find things I can make with flavors I love that don't include meat. This recipe sparked my creativity and although I didn't care for it as written, it was a starting point for something I will make again and again. Thanks!

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2011
Excellent! I replaced half the wheat flour with rice protein (extra nutrition) and used pecans, sesame seeds, cranberries and raisins (everything else exact). They are wonderful and my 3 teenagers like them as well. One hint, they taste not so good out of the oven but when you chill them over night in the fridge....SO good!! I can't wait to try some variations. This is a keeper and I will keep on hand for quick breakfasts on the go. Thank you!!

Roast Pumpkin and Feta Risotto

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Delicious vegetarian dish! Had a pumpkin I didn't know what to do with and this was perfect. Followed the directions exactly (although I did add 1/2 tsp of curry at the end). I will make this again and I want try it with a baking squash (when pumpkins are out of season). Thanks!

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Good vegetarian main dish. I used brown rice instead of white and good jarred spaghetti sauce instead of the tomato sauce and added fresh garlic in with the onions but used everything else as listed. The dish was really good. The next day I sliced the left over pepper and put in a french roll. Tasted just like a meatball sub lol. Thanks!

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
So GOOD! I loved this dish. Made it for dinner tonight but I used spaghetti noodles. I also cut the chili sauce in half and it was the perfect amount of heat. Per other reviews I added a small amount of chopped cilantro as well as some fresh grated ginger and it was a nice addition to the flavors. Don't skip the sesame oil! It really adds so much to the flavor of the dish. My teens and hubby said it was very good but I loooved it. :-) Next time I will try fresh noodles (Asian). Definite keeper. Thank you!

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
Wonderful and easy. I've made this several times and it's consistently good though I've made several changes. I prefer to use heavy cream instead of the milk for a richer flavor. I also use half Monterrey Jack/half Pepper Jack instead of the mozzarella and I add a couple tbls flour to the egg mix to make a thin batter. Great starter recipe though. Thank you!

Fruit Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2011
I served this at a party and everyone had the same opinion: It was delicious but overwhelmingly sweet after about 2 bites. If you happen to like dipping beautiful fruit into cheesecake (because it tastes exactly like it) then you may enjoy this. I prefer a lighter flavor/ texture paired with the natural sweetness of fresh fruit. I wanted a fruit dip, not a sweet dessert. Disappointing considering the reviews.

Israeli Moroccan Couscous

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
I think it's just a matter of personal taste but this was not good. I couldn't take the cinnamon flavor, it ruined the dish for us and the combination of spices and veggies just didn't work out liked I'd hoped it would. Also, I don't know if the veggies were supposed to be mushy (which they were) but we like a firmer texture and I had cubed them. We're vegetarians and I'm always on the hunt for new recipes but I will not be making this again as I'm the only one who could eat a bowl. Btw it makes a huge amount! Not sure what to do with all of it now. :-(

Mock Coconut Pie (Spaghetti Squash Pie)

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
The BEST pie ever! I never in a million years would have thought this would be good but it was fantastic. The whole family loved it. I was really puzzled by the fact there was no coconut flavoring in this though. I gave four stars because of the changes I made. I omitted the spices (which have nothing to do with coconut cream pie) and added half a can of coconut milk to the eggs and sugar. I did use the vanilla but cut the sugar in half. It taste exactly like coconut custard! SO GOOD! Thank you so much for this recipe!

Spaghetti Squash Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2012
I really wanted this to work as we eat tacos once a week and I love trying new things. I followed the recipe and I'm sorry but this was stringy and really mushy and the flavor was overwhelmed with the sweetness of the squash. I love spaghetti squash (and tacos) but this didn't work for us in texture or flavor. I'll stick with my seasoned and fried grains or beans for tacos. Sorry!
