Chocolate-Mint Brownie Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
I made these and sold them at a church bake sale this morning - they were the first type of cookie be sold out and I heard great feedback on them, even had return customers! These are delicious, rich and moist. After reading the reviews I reduced the mint extract by about half, but I definitely think that having some mint extract in the batter gives the cookie a wonderful soft minty flavor.

Cranberry-Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
Wow, these are moist, soft, delicious cookies! After reading the reviews I did add extra cinnamon and a bit of cloves and nutmeg. The orange zest really enhances the flavor! These are not too sweet, so the various flavors really stand out -- pumpkin, fresh cranberries, walnuts, with the touch of cinnamon and orange zest. I ran a bake sale at my church today and these cookies were a big seller. Thanks for a great, unique recipe.

Suzy's Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
Made this today for Thanksgiving and it was a hit! I warmed up my milk, butter and sour cream, plus added some diced garlic, on the stove before adding it to the potatoes for mashing. Also, I doubled the recipe but didn't double the butter and it was still great. Who needs to peel potatoes when you can cook delicious mashed potatoes like this without the hassle??

Slow Cooker Chicken Mole

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2012
I doubled this recipe for a big group tonight and got rave reviews. The flavor is strong and rich as written, and there was lots of extra sauce, which was nice and thick, making it all great over rice. Next time I make it I plan to increase the peanut butter and chocolate/cocoa to counter the slightly tart flavor that I assume comes from the tomatoes. Thanks for a delicious and easy crockpot recipe!

Pasta Melanzana

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
My husband is lactose intolerant so I omitted the butter and Parmesan cheese and added some mushrooms in with the eggplant. I also added extra spinach because it cooks down so much! This turned out to be a nice, light, fresh-tasting pasta, perfect for summer.

Tomato 'n' Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
Made this tonight for my in-laws who are on a low-carb type diet and served it on slices of polenta instead of spaghetti. It was a big hit! I didn't have enough shrimp so I also threw in some chicken. The sauce is substantial enough that even with eating very little polenta (due to the diet) they were satisfied and said it was delicious! This is great recipe, thanks!

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: May 24, 2012
This recipe is awesome and the 8 other people I fed it to tonight agree! I followed the recipe to a tee, only thing I added was a couple cloves of chopped garlic and I used raw frozen shrimp added an hour before it was all done cooking. Also, there was no andouille sausage at my grocery store so I bought sausage called Lousiana hot links, I figured it must be close. Thank you Colleen!

Vegetarian Bean Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
This was really good! I was skeptical about the raisins but they really added a great, touch of sweetness to the strong flavor of the curry. I followed some of the other reviewers and added about a 1/3 cup of coconut milk right at the end of the cook time and added a tbsp of garam masala when adding the seasonings. This recipe makes a up a full pan of food, so if you are only two persons you can easily cut the recipe in half and probably both still have seconds.

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
Yum, this recipe made delicious muffins that I can feel good about eating! Only problem, how do you keep the muffins from sticking to the paper muffin cups??? I only had 1/3 cup of honey so I used that plus 3 Tbsp of Agave Nectar and they are plenty sweet. Also, my sweet potato was massive so I used about 2/3 of it. Thank you for the wonderful, healthy recipe!

Slow Cooker Thai Peanut Pork

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2012
Made this today and after reading lots of the reviews I was worried about saltiness or the pork getting overcooked but it was delicious with these tips I pulled from the reviews. I used regular teriyaki sauce (it was what I had on hand) and to avoid sodium overkill I added a spoon-full of honey and about a 1/4 cup of water. I also used all natural unsalted PB. It cooked on low for about 6 hours and I basted the pork about once an hour and I would not exceed that time. I also added an extra clove of garlic and about 1/2 tsp extra red pepper flakes, we like spice but this was not overkill. I waited to add the red peppers with only ~2 hours left and (because I love them) added mushrooms after I mixed in the peanut butter. YUM! My husband also really enjoyed it. I think one key to keeping the spice and not letting the peppers get too soggy is to leave them mostly laying on top of the pork as opposed to swimming in the sauce.

Grilled Jalapeno Tuna Steaks

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
This is an amazing marinade! We used it the first time on tuna but now more often use it for shrimp to put in tacos. Absolutely delicious! I live in an apartment with no access to a grill so I just saute the tuna or shrimp and get to use the cooked garlic and jalapeno from the marinade as sauce/garnish. Yummmmmm!

Butter Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
This is a great, easy recipe that both my husband and I really enjoyed tonight! I didn't have the condensed soup so instead a used a can of diced tomatoes and about half a small can of tomato paste, which added a nice tangy flavor, as one reviewer already suggested. I also used coconut milk and only had one large potato but we felt like that was enough. It's not really spicy so I added a few sprinkles of cayenne pepper for a kick. Delicious!

Italian Chicken Skillet

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
This is a delicious, easy and healthy recipe. My husband can't do dairy so I left out the cheese and it was still great. I also added some chopped zucchini and fresh mushrooms, and I didn't have Italian-style diced tomatoes so I just used regular diced tomatoes and added oregano, basil and parsley. One issue I had was that when the pasta was cooking there didn't seem to be enough liquid to get it all the way cooked and I had to add some water. So in the future when I make this again (and I will!) I will either cut back the amount of pasta I add or just be ready to add some water and/or extra wine as the pasta is cooking. Thanks for a great recipe!

Spicy Orange Beef

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2012
We don't cook red meat very often and decided to give this recipe a try to expand our meat horizons - We thought this was delicious! I followed some of the other reviews used orange juice instead of sherry and sesame oil instead of vegetable oil and 86-ed the orange peel. After cooking the beef I sauteed onions, carrots and mushrooms, then added the garlic, ginger and beef back in. I highly recommend adding the extra veggies and next time I will try the snow peas or broccoli as some other folks recommended. I added a heaping 1/2 teaspoon of the red pepper flakes and it was plenty spicy. Thanks for a great recipe!

Lemony Chicken with Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
I made this tonight and my husband loved it! I served it over Farfelle pasta. I also didn't have vermouth and instead used white wine (just a Pinot Grigio I had on hand). I didn't have lemons so I just used lemon juice, about 4 Tbsps. Depending on your love for the the lemon flavor you can adjust that. Highly recommend!
