Baked Pork Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2014
My whole family disliked the strong ginger taste that these had. I made them vegetarian, but would either cut the ginger out or down significantly next time. Everything else worked out ok. I'd try it again, but with modifications for sure.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2014
I expected more based on the other reviews. I thought that it was lacking flavor and that the texture was a bit to be desired. Once the pumpkin and spices are added, it isn't really cheesecake-y at all. It was super easy, but it definitely fell into the "ok" pile for me. I'm going to keep searching and probably won't make it again. One week later... I'm revising my review. I froze the pie and took it out to eat a week later. After sitting for a while it developed a much better flavor and texture. I increase my rating from 3 to 4 stars and will probably make it again.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2014
I've made this on two separate St. Patrick's days. Both times it was a success! I use regular and golden raisins mixed. One thing that I've noted is that I have to extend the cooking time to get them cooked through. Even trying to spread my dough balls thinner didn't help the second time around. Good recipe for anyone trying to duplicate what their Irish grandmother did

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2014
These were easy and great. Rated a "top cookie" by the person I gifted them to. My husband usually turns his nose up at anything other than chocolate chip, but he wanted to eat these all up.

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: May 7, 2014
I thought this turned out great. To my surprise, my husband LOVED it too. I added a couple of Tbsp of canola oil and hot water to the recipe based on the "dry" reviews. It was plenty moist for us.

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2014
My husband is a fish taco fan and I decided I was going to give it a try. I figured I would fail a few times before getting it right, but this one (my first attempt) got rave reviews! The only thing I didn't add was seafood seasoning. My fish was thin so I definitely could have cooked it less, but the sauce was delicious and we all enjoyed it. Even my 4 yr old had a second serving. I put a vinaigrette dressing on the slaw which I ate in my tacos and my hubby consumed on the side.

Baked Oatmeal II

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
This was a great breakfast option for hosting a group. It was quick and easy and kept me with my visitors instead of slaving over the stove! I cut the sugar in half (after trying it exactly like the recipe once) and I substitute half of the butter with applesauce. I suggest cutting out the craisins when fresh berries are around to top it with upon serving, or baking frozen berries into the mix! This is a staple in our diet.

Beef and Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
I was hesitant because of the other reviews, but my family was SO excited that this turned out well. My husband asked when the last time was that we found a new recipe this good! I think the key is cooking it long enough to let the sauce get a bit thick and more flavorful. I simmered uncovered for a few extra minutes at the end. I may have added a bit more stock and an extra half cup of pasta to be sure I had enough. Definitely a new regular in my house. My 4 year old loved it too.
