Stuffed Jalapeno Firecrackers

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2014
Turns out my husband prefers cheddar.... *sigh* (I personally don't care much for these, but he loves jalapeno poppers....., so I made these ones for him..., IF you are like me, making them for someone else, you might ask which ones they prefer!

Turnips and Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
Rich and so good (more caramelized than in the pic)! Didn't try to turn this into a middle eastern spread. Just used the ingredients listed. Might be good both ways - we liked it as written, but cooked longer. It had a mild horseradish affect. Great on crackers - as per sueb (thanks sueb!). Liked it on those crackers along with meats and cheeses. An excellent addition to a 'snackables' kind of meal...... Might be good on a sandwich (rye bread and/or etc.).

Quick Gnocchi

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
My family loved these quick gnocchi! It's so nice to hear that some Italian grandmothers out there 'cheat' this way too! - - - - - I smile with them when I enjoy these!

Delicious Black Bean Burritos

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2014
Good recipe. &EZ! Hubs likes as a dip w/chips too. Sons like this until the guacamole runs out. I might really love this on homemade bread rounds, but didn't take the time this go round. I'm not sure how much I'd like this w/canned beans. We use our homecooked black beans w/lots of cumin, chili powder, garlic, onion, oregano & etc. This will be in our 'extended rotation', meaning, if I need more black bean recipes (or a quick one), I'll use this one because it is so different than anything else we make & it is nice. But I prefer black beans w/ 1:banana salsa & tumeric rice (hot banana salsa from this site & just add a bit of turmeric & garlic to rice while it cooks); 2:Quinoa Black Bean Burgers (from this site); 3:a black bean casserole I made up on the quick one day(corn tortillas, black beans, salsa, & cheddar in layers); 4:a simple black bean soup made of half of my black beans & half salsa (red or green); 5:black beans & rice as a side to dishes such as Peachy Chicken Picante (from this site but with our modifications - usually prefer fish for that though). 6: sherried black bean soup - black beans pureed w/lots of onions & a touch of cooking sherry & broth as needed (so EZ since I can use a Vita-Mix or a hand blender). // I don't usually need more black bean recipes than that, but if I need a quick meal w/black beans, or I want a black bean dip, this will be handy. (probably '6' servings w/plenty of 8" tortillas would be enough for our family of 5 w/side salad)

Chocolate Wontons

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2014
I liked these more than my family - but maybe just because I love chocolate so much...... I have to admit I didn't think they were fabulous, but I liked them..... My family did not care for these *at all*!

Roasted Pumpkins

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2014
Agreed with Pearl about the stringiness of the pumpkin: MIGHT TRY THIS: BAKE PARTIALLY, AND THEN...... work as for twice baked potatoes? Pull out the pulp, at least some of it, and then put that in a blender with some applesauce and spices, then refill the shells???? Just a thought... might not be well worth the trouble.....

Super Summer Kale Salad

Reviewed: May 28, 2014
Wow! Superfoods never tasted so wonderful! Even Hubs & the kids like fresh kale now! NO wonder this is my new favorite salad - really, I could have eaten the whole salad myself....., and I certainly polished the bowl! Yum, yum, yum, yum, yum.... Super food fever is setting in deep!!!! Yum, yum, yum, yum, YUM! ... (and yes, this is a flexible salad: subs for sugar, fruit, nuts, all work well, try adding quinoa..... etc.)

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: May 25, 2014
Love, love, love, this cornbread recipe FOR CORN STICKS ONLY. Really - our family only likes this recipe when we make it up as corn sticks *with these modifications*: swap quantities of flour/cornmeal, use whole wheat flour, use raw sugar, soak cornmeal for 5-10 minutes, bake in preheated corn stick pans w/melted butter - but not overfilling them at all - perhaps underfilling them. For that purpose, we truly love this recipe. Nothing else compares to the crisp crunch of this recipe when a lot of crust is involved, even when/if this recipes is not whisked for the five minutes recommended in most reviews. Oh! the crunch when this is made with a bit of butter melted in pre-heated corn stick pans???? --- it's really wonderful! For other ways of baking cornbread though (muffins, in a cast iron skillet, etc.)? We have other favorites.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2014
Very nice as is. My kids and I all loved it. The basil fit this mixture very well, but many combinations of herbs and/or seasonings w/various cheeses would work as well. Thanks for the great idea!

Blue Cheese with Capers and Red Onion

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2014
Absolutely my favorite appetizer to date. Hubs loves it too but not his absolute fav (he loves jalapeno poppers too much methinks!) 1) We're on a low-end budget so I couldn't justify the use of olive oil for just the 'folks@home' but it was still *very* good (I'm sure w/olive oil it's better still) 2) We're predisposed to blue-cheese dressings w/a touch of sugar, so I added about a half-teaspoon or so of raw sugar which was perfect for us 3) I didn't measure anything, I just dumped what 'looked right to me' in a bowl - but used all of the ingredients listed - so this is pretty flexible, IMHO 4) I left the bowl out on the counter for a couple of hours since I forgot to make it ahead. This is good @room temp, so that worked pretty well, &yes, it tasted significantly different after sitting for that time. (no leftovers, so can't compare an overnight fridging yet) 5) I don't care for this on Ritz but like it on celery, & adore it on thinly sliced toast (used some leftover bread from Jo's Rosemary Bread from this site sliced in thin slices, toasted w/garlic oil brushed on lightly) 6) I also liked just one thin slice of turkey breast from the deli on it 7) A couple slices of the toast w/this dip spread on top & a piece of deli sliced turkey on each, together w/salad, & possibly egg drop soup - would be an ideal meal to me..... Yum! 8) Agree w/reviewer that this is good on salad too. Thanks, DEG1, for sharing. I'm sure I'll make this often for meals, on salads, &4 get togethers.

Chocolate Banana Layer Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
Loved the idea. Don't know what I did wrong, but this was not only too strong of a banana flavor, but it was also way too heavy of a cake when I made it........ ???

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2014
Fast! Fun to work up! Learned a lot about making a nice, quick dough. This filling is very nice - but when I make these anymore, I use the 'clone of a cinnabon' filling using raw sugar isntead of this recipe's filling...., either way has resulted in rave reviews, I just prefer the other filling.

Chocolate Italian Cream Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
One reviewer mentioned serving this at a wedding. THAT makes loads of sense. For a formal setting, with small bits of this and that, this is a very, very, very, very nice alternative. As for our family - in a family-dessert setting? One of us LOVED this cake (youngest son). Next oldest son loved the texture, BUT wanted way more chocolate (that didn't stop him from eating a substantial wedge!) I agreed that the texture was very nice, BUT that more chocolate would be a 'fuller' experience, but then, I'm experiencing that time in life when I crave chocolate. Dh, who doesn't typically like coconut, could stand this cake in spite of the coconut, but was happy enough to see the fellas take the cake with them when they headed off to see their friends this evening. I was certainly not ashamed to have them sharing this cake. It IS a nice cake. And in a single-type-of-dessert-setting, for those who like a moderate amount of chocolate, it makes all the sense in the world. For the rest of us, if this is the only dessert on the menu, this needs to have no chocolate, or gobs or chocolate - either way would be sublime for anyone methinks, even if some love the cake as is (which is great for them). The texture, again, was very, very wonderful.

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2014
Wow! I didn't leave a review on this bread already? This is my hub's favorite bread from this site......, maybe his fav all around bread. He loves it with balsamic vinegar and oil and/or pepper if we don't have balsamic around (though that pepper option is a distant second for him). Thanks for making me a better cook for my fella! (yes, he's a good cook too, but I doubt he'll ever make bread..... *grin* even with the help of a bread machine...., that's funny, huh?), though I do bake in the oven....., oh, and though it's a bit heavier, I do use half whole wheat.......

Butternut Squash Cajun Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2014
stunned how much I like these - and how different they are than any other squash recipe we've tried - we cut our squash more in cubes, which worked well too....... (actually, I usually clean, peel, and chop up several butternut squashes at once and freeze them - and that's what I used - and I'd simply cubed those..., so while I was a little dubious, I was pleased, oh yes, so very pleased with the results), can't say they got crispy, but I didn't miss the crisp....... the yum and spice was plenty good enough as is.....

Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2014
Personally I prefer to lightly coat the chicken in a bit of flour before browning it. Also include 1-3 stalks of celery (depending on how large/intense the flavor), prefer rosemary with chicken, but thyme is fine; add a good sized splash of cooking sherry, use chicken broth instead of water, and well, we prefer to serve this dish with pan-toasted slices of French or Italian bread rather than the rolls one pinner enjoys - - - the garlic spreads so well and meshes so well with toasted sliced crusty loaf types of bread....... yum!...... We've *never* been low on flavor, though, in our estimation, the flavor of the garlic is best used on the bread..., and no, it is not intense garlic in the chicken - just great eats!
