Poppy Seed Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2008
This was okay, and people seemed to like it at my family gathering, but I really didn't think it had enough cranberries. I would probably double the amount next time. I added some fresh lemon juice to the glaze.

BBQ Nachos

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
Great idea! It really hits the spot. I used one smoked sausage link (cut the end off before shredding, and the casing will peel away as you shred it), and I added some sour cream after microwaving. Good snack!

Shrimp Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
I'm giving this a four because I made a few changes. Instead of canned shrimp I used some cooked, peeled shrimp that I had on hand, and just chopped them up. Then I added artichoke hearts and black olives and heated the whole thing up with some Jack and parmesan cheeses on top. Yum. Mee. I'm eating it with tortilla chips. Love the horseradish!

Gluehwein

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
This is a bit sweet for me, but the spices are really great. I used a Zinfandel. Next time I may use something a little drier, just to offset the sweetness a bit.

Green Bean Turkey Bake

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2008
I realized when I got home from Thanksgiving that whoever had packaged the leftovers at our huge family gathering hadn't given me any gravy! What's up with that? So I decided to try this recipe to use up my gravy-less potatoes and turkey. And well, it's not gourmet, but it's definitely comfort food on a blustery day like today. I didn't thaw my green beans, which was fine. I microwaved the first mixture for 4 and a half minutes, then topped it with cold potatoes and microwaved another 4 minutes, and it's not piping hot, so I might warm it up some more. Make sure to season this generously with salt and pepper!

Chocolate Cakes with Liquid Centers

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2008
Woah. These are seriously, seriously, SERIOUSLY rich. Even after baking for 9 minutes, mine still came out a little too liquid-y for me. The one I unmolded came out of the ramekin fine, but the center was spilling out through a break in the side. I think I'll refrigerate the other three and see if I like them better that way. The flavor is phenomenal, though!

Garlic Bread Fantastique

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2008
Yup, a little too much oregano, and, frankly, a little too much butter/mayo overall. I'm eating it on whole wheat baguette from the bakery where I work, and I can taste the butter practically dripping out of the bread whenever I take a bite. But darn is it good! :)

Blueberry Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
I didn't like this that well. I took it to Thanksgiving, and I'm about the only one who ate it. It definitely needs some more spices, and I guess I shouldn't have covered it, because it was super soggy as well. An oatmeal topping would have been much, much better.

Cinnamon Stove Top Granola

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2008
This is really yummy! In fact, I can't seem to stop eating it. I love the honey in it. I used the orange blossom variety, and it's delicious. I also added walnuts and a few pine nuts. I've had it plain and with milk, which is great because I don't like regular oatmeal.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2008
I wish I had read the previous reviews, because this had way too much mayo. (Something I realized as I was putting it into the bowl.) That being said, the flavor is really good. I only used about a tbls of relish, and I left out the dill weed because I didn't have any. Next time I would use less mayo, same amount of pickle relish, and add diced celery for a little crunch. Love the curry!

Spicy Potatoes and Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2008
Pretty tasty. I chopped up my raw potato first, then 'par boiled' it in the micro (put it in a bowl with a little water in the bottom, then partially covered and microwaved for about 5 minutes) and finished the dices in the pan with olive oil and the spices. I didn't peel my potato, but it's a very thin-skinned garden variety, so I don't think it mattered. I also added cheese to my eggs, because that's how I roll. Yum!

Spaghetti Squash with Pine Nuts, Sage, and Romano

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
Spahetti squash is so fun! I think mine was a bit undercooked at 50 minutes, but I went with it, anyway. I used more butter than called for - closer to 2 T instead of 2 t. I also used parmesan instead of romano. The combination of flavors is delicious.

Corn Chowder II

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
This is some serious comfort food. It's a sweet corn chowder, due to the canned corns. I liked the addition of the peppers, as they gave it a nice flavor. But I'd like to try a less sweet chowder next, perhaps with frozen corn and cream or half and half. There was definitely not enough liquid here. I added the liquid from the canned whole kernel corn and also added milk until it was the consistancy that I wanted.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Hmmmm.... I'm not sure how I feel about these cookies. The first couple of batches of mine got overdone at 10 minutes, and I used more than a teaspoon of dough. They're pretty crispy and do fall apart easily. I left mine on the baking sheet for a couple of minutes before trying to transfer them to the cooling rack. Overall, I don't think I would make these again. They just didn't turn out as well as I thought.

Apple Cole Slaw

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
This was a tad sweet for me, so I would probably use less sugar next time. I also like the idea of adding apple cider vinegar, although I didn't think of that because I didn't read the reviews first. I used red cabbage, one huge braeburn apple, and left out the green onions, as I didn't have any. The salad is really pretty, although the dressing turned a little pink due to the red cabbage. I would definitely make this again with a little tweaking.

Stuffed Jalapenos III

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
When I was cutting the jalapenos, I got so much 'essence of jalapeno' in my throat that I assumed the ones I had were super spicy (garden fresh from a coworker). So I boiled them for a minute or so to take some of the heat out. They ended up hardly spicy at all, so I'm not sure if I would do that again. Anyway, I used plain block cream cheese and a half a slice of bacon on each. Granted, the bacon was thick sliced, but I can't imagine using a whole slice for each jalapeno half, as the ones I made were plenty rich with just half a slice. For those who think a half slice of bacon doesn't wrap the pepper as well, you can stretch the bacon more than you think (especially when using the thinner sliced bacon). Overall, they were a little rich for me, but tasty too!

Gingered Pears

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
I'm not giving this a five, because I didn't follow the recipe. I used red pears, not the ripest, and it still didn't take quite so long for them to soften up. Instead of water, I used tea - a spiced holiday tea that I happened to have. I then added sliced fresh ginger halfway through cooking. I chilled the pears and ate them with some warm vanilla sauce (very simple - just cornstarch, sugar, water, vanilla and butter). Very tasty! I highly recommend it.

Awesome Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
This is a good flavored cake. The icing is a little sweet for my taste. I added a splash of milk, because it was so thick that my mixer could barely keep up with it. Then I used about 2/3 of the icing recipe for a 9x13 cake.

Blue Cheese Dip II

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
This is pretty good. I'm not sure that I cared for all the dried parsley and would probably use fresh next time. I've eaten it with pretzels and will probably try some on a salad as well. I left out the green onions, as I didn't have any.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Wacky Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
Pretty good cake. It is extremely moist and rich. I followed the recipe exactly and ate it warm out of the oven. It's almost like a pudding cake. The combination of the cake and the frosting is very, very sweet.
