German Spaetzle with Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
This was awesome!!! I added about 1/2 tsp of nutmeg to the batter and cooked the sauerkraut with some onions before layering. After putting the breadcrumbs on, I put the whole thing under the broiler for a few minutes to toast the top. I used the cutting board and knife method to make the noodles; I couldn't get it to come through the holes of my colander very easily. This recipe made a mess of my kitchen but it was extremely tasty!

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2010
I think the flavor of these was good, they weren't that hard to make (I'm not sure why people are having difficulty with the wrappers, just don't get them too wet) but the texture was very off-putting for me. I think they would be much better with more vegetables and fewer noodles. It was just too squishy, squeamy for my liking. I Like the idea that others have mentioned of using sprouts instead of the noodles. I might try that next time.

Pumpkin Ravioli

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2009
I really enjoyed this recipe and I followed it exactly. The dough was easy to work with and I rolled it out with a rolling pin. The first half I made traditional square ravioli style following the directions, and the second half I used a biscuit cutter to make 2-in circles of dough and sealed them up like calzones. This was easier, but re-rolling the extra scraps after cutting is tricky because they are very elastic and need to rest again. I had about 1/3 cup of filling leftover at the end--my raviolis didn't seem underfilled but maybe I just rolled my dough out thicker than I should have. I boiled the raviolis gently in small batches and took them out with a slotted spoon when they floated to the top (about 5 min or less). Not a single one burst, and I was pretty worried that they weren't sealed very well by the looks of them. I topped them with a plain marinara and fresh chopped parsley. My preschool age boys (who helped me make them) gobbled them up!

Coconut Macaroons

Reviewed: May 9, 2007
I added 1/2 tsp of almond extract for a little deeper flavor and loved the result. Very easy and very quick. Didn't turn out sticky at all and had a wonderful light texture. It made 18 cookies

Chicken Pesto a la Lisa

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2006
I used homemade pesto and I didn't have sundried tomatoes so I added fresh tomatoes to the sauce at the end of cooking, just to warm through. Very nice flavor. The feta cheese is a must!

Chicken, Cheese, and Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2006
I cooked the mixture for about 10 minutes longer than it said (before putting into the casserole dish) and the green beans were still crispy. Maybe would be best to use canned or pre-cook the green beans. I also used a half recipe of drop biscuit dough on top rather than the refrigerated biscuits so the sauc to biscuit ratio was good and it cooked just fine (sort of like a cobbler). Overall good flavor but I'll have to make some changes before making it again.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: May 31, 2005
I thought the texture of this dish was very nice, but the flavor was bland. I would suggest adding garlic and thyme to kick it up a bit.

Whole Wheat Pita Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2005
I made this exactly as recipe stated. Maybe I'm not used to soy flour, but I think it gave the pitas a funny taste. The texture was ok though.

Cinnamon Streusel Orange Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2005
I added the zezt of one orange to the recipe to give it some extra tang. The texture is really great, and I love the crumbly topping!

Great flavor. I used instant mashed potatoes like others suggested (4 servings)and it turned out pretty good.

Chicana

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2005
I used a can of diced tomatoes instead of the tomato sauce, and didn't add any water. I thickened with cornstarch after simmering for 45 minutes and served on tortillas. GREAT flavor and reheated well.

Cornbread Muffins I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2003
A little too sweet for my taste. I use applesauce instead of honey, and left out the corn kernels.
