This recipe turned out better than I expected. The first 2 posts were instrumental in helping me. The taste is awesome and my husband nearly ate all of them. Perfect for chocolate cravings. We will be making these again and again and again and . . . .

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2012
Wow! I am not a vegetarian by any means but have been trying to improve my diet - eating habits - so I started searching for easy recipes. This was my first one and I have to say that I am impressed. Delicious and nutritious. My husband practically ate it from the bowl whereas I had it on a bagel thin with lettuce and tomato.

Homesteader Cornbread

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2012
The best cornbread I've made ever. I halved the recipe (8 servings instead of the origial 15) and followed the instructions. (First, I watched the video as I am a visual learner). I did NOT beat for 5 minutes and my bread came out great! It was MOIST and just the right amount of sweetness. Served it with a cajun 10 bean "soup" that I bought from the store. My husband loved it. We've made cornbread from scratch before, often using freshly ground cornmeal from a mill we visited. Ran out of that and used some regular old plain cornmeal that I've had in the fridge for about 6 months. It was perfect.

Creamed Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2015
I grew up with this recipe and it is my go-to when I want some comfort. I like thicker white sauce so I use the ratio of 2-2-1 (2 tablespoons butter, 2 tablespoons flour, and 1 cup milk).

Perfect Mixed Greens

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2015
I was unable to cook exactly to the recipe. I didn't have all the ingredients available. But this recipe was the perfect inspiration for my very first attempt. I do not like greens. Never have, but after this recipe, I have changed my mind. The changes I made were: did not soak greens (only had collards and turnip greens from CSA box), used caramelized onions (used butter in lieu of oil) instead of sugar, used 2 tsp mined garlic, used two cans chicken broth, and finally, cooked everything in a cast iron pan/Dutch oven that I inherited from my late grandmother. Cooking time itself was about the same as recipe. I didn't really pay it that much attention. Oh, added salt to taste but no pepper (my palate is weird and doesn't react well to pepper). My husband gives it two thumbs up and I ate all but the portion my husband had. It was even good cold the next day! Thank you!
