Almond and Parmesan Crusted Tilapia

Reviewed: May 3, 2015
Absolutely fabulous! I really hate fish, but I'm trying to learn to like it, and this recipe was really great! I even cheated a bit with the ingredients, and it was still delicious. Changes were: garlic salt (lazy me), no celery salt or onion powder (didn't have it), and I didn't use any olive oil - just sprayed the tin foil to keep it from sticking. Truly a great recipe - it was simple to put together, and it was done cooking in less than 10 min. Perfect!

Bean Rarebit

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2015
I LICKED THE PLATE CLEAN. That's all I have to say. This recipe is flexible for what you have on hand, though I did try to stay close to the original. I used honey mustard because I didn't have dijon, and I doubled the white beans for extra protein and fiber, and reduced fat cheese (on a diet in which I an eat whatever I want that fits the food budget!). The flavor is fantastic, it only took about 15 min to make, and it's cheap. What more could you want? I may add a few additional seasonings to tailor for my own taste (garlic, maybe cayenne...), but even the base recipe is phenomenal. Thanks to you and your mother for this winner!

Lemon Poppy Seed Biscotti

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2015
5 for flavor, 3 for the recipe. I had the same moisture issues as the others. I added an extra egg and 1/4 cup of oil to actually get this into dough form. I also used chia seeds instead of poppy, but those were all my alterations (I was actually able to find lemon extract at the store!). I loved the flavor! And the consistency came out great, even after my meddling. Realistically though, I'm going to use another recipe and trade out the anise for lemon extract. I'm sure I"ll get the same results.

Twice Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ricotta Cheese

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2015
Absolutely a 5 star recipe. I make it exactly as the recipe calls for (except I go for full fat ricotta!), and I get lavish compliments on it every time. I usually top it with bacon just for fun, and it's really wonderful. Plus, this is a flexible recipe. You can also add more sugar or cinnamon to make it sweeter, or more parmesan or garlic to make it more savory....all have turned out well, including the original recipe. Enjoy!

Irresistible Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2015
Tastes a lot like a biscuit! I followed the directions exactly, and it's a pretty tasty bread, though I wasn't expecting it to be so biscuit-y.

Irish Tea Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2015
Delightful recipe! I followed it exactly and 4 drops of green food coloring for St. Paddy's day, and it came out perfectly (I submitted a picture if you'd like to see). Mine took the full 35 minutes to cook and I did not need to add any additional milk. Definitely recommended for a light tea cake! Thanks for the recipe!

West African Peanut Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2015
Really wonderful and unique recipe! I'm a calorie counter, so I had to lower the cals/serving to fit this into my daily intake budget. So....I only used about 2/3 cup peanutbutter. I also didn't put in the greens due to personal preference, and I didn't add chicken out of sheer laziness (would've had to thaw it). I think 1 tbs was too much crushed red pepper, but this is up to the individual, so I recommend you start with less and work your way hotter to get it right. Also, I used an immersion blender and preferred this consistency because the potatoes ended up too mushy for my liking after 35 min of boiling/simmering. Anyway, fabulous - thanks for sharing!

Totally unique recipe. Spicy, peanutty, and unlike every other recipe in my arsenal. Great blend of flavors.

Cucumber and Dill Finger Sandwiches

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2015
Fabulous! I was looking for a light lunch today, and I found this to be extremely refreshing! The flavors blend together very well, and it's unique compared to the usual sandwich fare. I had to change a few things based on what I had on hand. I used honey whole wheat, which was good, but I'm betting sour dough would've been a knockout. I used a regular onion rather than a shallot, and I had to use dried dill instead of fresh. I scaled down the recipe using only about 3/4 of a log of goat cheese and 1.5 tsp of dried dill, if anyone is curious. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing.

Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2015
WONDERFUL! I wanted a chicken recipe that was a little off the beaten path, and this was just the ticket. I made it nearly exactly as stated except for my use of full fat mayo instead of low fat :), and I pan fried them in coconut oil rather than baking them. The result was fantastic. The breading stayed attached just fine, the flavors balanced wonderfully, and the coconut was apparent without being overwhelming. The sauce was great too. I didn't really know what to expect with a mayo and coconut topping, but drizzling that on top was quite flavor enhancing. I added about a tsp of brown sugar to it for a bit more sweetness. I recommend that if you are into that kind of thing. Overall - fabulous recipe!

Swedish Rye Bread II

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2015
I thoroughly enjoyed this bread recipe. I didn't make any changes other than making a 1/3 batch and using a bread machine. It's exactly as sweet as I was hoping for with a honey bread. It's fluffy, moist, flavorful - just perfect. Oh! Wait, I did use 1 tsp of orange extract instead of zest, and I didn't detect any orange flavor, but I think it was perfect the way it was. I'll probably just omit it altogether next time. Highly recommend you give this one a whirl if you're looking for a sweet bread. I used the 2 lb loaf setting with 1/3 of the recipe, medium crust, and white loaf. Came out perfect as you can see in my picture :). Enjoy!

Black Bean Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2015
I don't have any dietary restrictions that led me to this recipe. I just had an abundance of black beans that was trying to get rid of - and who wouldn't want a healthier dessert option anyway? I have to say, I like this far more than I thought I would. The only change I made was to add a teaspoon of baking powder like others suggested. It came out with a sort of denser sponge cake consistency which I was impressed with. My only critique is that it was a tad on the bland side. Adding chocolate chips to the top fixed it well enough for me, and I suspect icing would be good as well. I plan to make this again, but I'll try to add a bit more chocolate flavor to the batter. Overall, I would make this again if I wanted a healthier dessert, but if I wanted to impress someone, is go with the full fat, fudgy brownies :). Thanks for the recipe!

Strawberry Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2015
I made it exactly as described, and it was really quite delicious! It was a nice change of pace for a dessert compared to cakes, pies, and the like. My husband really liked it! Two things: reducing the vinegar didn't actually make it any thicker, so I don't bother heating it anymore. Also, I think this would be improved b adding a tsp of sugar or honey to the balsamic if you have out of season strawberries that aren't all that sweet.

Indian Curried Barley Pilaf

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2014
Tastes great! I made it exactly as written, then added more of the spices until I liked it, which means a bit more salt, and a full extra tsp of curry. Fantastic savory side!

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2014
I used this recipe to make pretzel rolls instead of the usual fun shape, and I used the dough cycle in my bread maker instead of doing the work myself. I gotta say, I've tried to make pretzels a number of times and they always came out fairing like a normal bread roll (or worse, a biscotti consistency!), but this time they were perfect. I didn't experiment with any flavors - I just went with butter and salt and they taste just like the the mall pretzels, only fresher! I can't wait to start experimenting with other toppings and hot dogs!

Barley Risotto Primavera

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
Made the recipe as written. It basically met expectations: tastes like barley with some veggies. It's a good, healthful side dish, which is what I was looking for, but I probably won't make it again. As long as you aren't expecting anything special, you'll be satisfied.
