Quick Quiche

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2006
I just made this for breakfast & we devoured it husband had refused to eat it for supper the other day (he threatened to go out to eat if I made it!) so I snuck into the kitchen before he woke up & started this UNBELIEVABLY FAST, easy & so delicious quiche!!! Thank you so much for submitting this, it's absolutely easy & my early teen daughter will be whipping this up for us often!!! *NOTE* glass pie pans take 5-8 minutes longer so don't open the oven door until you've made the adjustment! Otherwise your's will fall, as mine did --but its going to still be great!

Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2006
I bought a pumpin at the farmer's market for making pie & seeds, but found this recipe on a "quick meal" search & thought, "What the hey? Sounds healthy & the ratings are great." SO>>> I followed other reviewers & added about 1/4 Cup of food processed onions to the bubbling butter, then did the recipe as followed. Added about 1 cup of shredded chicken to it & used Coconut milk instead of the 1/2 & 1/2, AND I used Indian Curry which made it near impossible for my children to feed their bodies so wonderfully as my hubby & me! Made wheat rolls & topped the soup with the seeds & we were so satisfied, in & out! This is a great, warm up your insides & get your nose running soup! So good for you too! Thank you for this addition to my fave site! Now this recipe card sits in front row in my soup slot in the recipe box!!!

No Beans About It - Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2007
I'm kicking Hormel chili out the door! Home-made, healthy (no bugs or odds & ends to worry about down at the chili plant! ew!!) and my family really LOVED Frito-chili night. SO FAST & EASY TO MAKE!! Our daughter will be making us this for chili dogs, Frito-chili, and anything else we can think to top it with, spaghetti? We served ours in big bowls with Frito chips on bottom, then some shredded cheddar cheese, the chili, then some avacodos and onions, we were out of tomatoes so we omitted the thought for this time, the kids liked more cheese & some sour cream on top. Black beans will be there next time --on the side. VERY GOOD! Put a bowl of condiments in the center for everyone to personalize theirs!

Sun-dried Tomatoes I

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2006
Make sure you don't do what I did & NOT use a non-stick pan, either that or lightly oil the pan prior to baking... took all day & WOWSA, so delish. Other than the scraping off of the pan, they turned out wonderful. So much flavor in one little strip, they pack punch & will make beautiful gifts come this Christmas! (tis' amazing how you can fit 5 huge tomatoes in one, little 6oz jar!)

Vanilla Wafer Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
We used 3/4 Cup sugar, also tried dropping the cookies but they were puffy, unlike "Nilla Wafer" cookies so we rolled about a level teaspoon-full in the palm & then softly flattened. They turned out Excellent! If you like crispy edges, slightly chewey centers, and the taste of sweet, crispy butter --these are a dieter's nightmare on the hips but fantasy on the lips. My husband's a cookie-hater (chocolate-chip is the only one he'll even bother with) and he took a cereal bowl FULL of these from the cooling racks & a mug of milk & went off dunking & munching. ***!!!BEWARE!!!***

Fast and Easy Tofu Lo-Mein

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
This was VERY good for a fast supper. My pantry was bare, I didn't have any frozen stir-fry veggies but I had carrots, celery, mushrooms and onions. It turned out VERY tasty & my whole family of six, plus a baby, polished off an 8 serving meal. I baked my tofu in soy, garlic, ginger and a bit of honey, instead of frying it because I needed to fry up some ground chicken @ the same time (I only had one box of tofu!). I never had tofu taste great! Frying it would have gotten the same results. Satifying and FAST!

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
I printed out this recipe last night & so far my husband has made me make 3 whole batches!!! I did use bread flour instead of all-purp & used 1 1/2 cups of it, as an epicurean website suggested... FAB!!! Fun, too! Messy & gloopy, I think I'll use 1 1/4 cups instead. Now, I'm looking at peach cans & cookie cutters with CRUMPETS in mind! (I used circular cookie cutters, mason jar rings, and pancake pattern shapes. The kids fight over who gets the heart shaped one! *Oh, split these, too. Cut them with a bread knife & toast them, top w/ oodles & oodles of butter & jam!!! Tea-time in Minnesota will never be the same for this family!!! Thank you for the recipe, dear lady.

Whole Wheat Wraps

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
Yummmmm! These were very good. I had to add a bit more wheat flour, otherwise these would have been too sticky. Didn't have any wax paper so I floured my board & rolling pin & rolled them out thin. If one gets stiff, let it sit while you do another. Really good with another recipe from this site for Make Ahead Lunch Wraps. Be careful that you use a SEASONED griddle, ungreased... otherwise you'll destroy your pan with the flour burning. Great recipe, low fat & healthy, why buy?? You KNOW what's in these!

Rhubarb Torte

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
This was so pretty! It tasted sublime, let me tell you! Rhubarb is NOT a family favorite & now it has become a beloved, free delish-treat in our home. Great to take to a picnic or any gathering, or just after dinner with the fam. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
Long overdue praise! I made this last Thanks Giving dinner & was totally wowed by it! My borderline diabetic step-dad couldn't leave it alone!! He was craving it as soon as he left our home! I couldn't quit eating it, the topping is scrumptious, it stays crispy and SO good when you just spoon it out & chomp away. It looks wonderful, too! I don't even think I ate more than one slice of (sensational BBQed)turkey & I forwent the pies altogether!!! This was absurdly fantastic! It made a monster out of me! This year, maybe for my step-dad's sake I'll use splenda? for my sake, too, since I just delivered baby #5 a week ago & have a bit of chub to rid... Maybe....

Shrimp and Quinoa

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
First time trying quinoa & now no one in my house wants to eat it again. the quinoa with the raisins, salt and pepper were excellent, but the rest appeared to have too many conflicting flavors. Sent husband to work w/the cold leftovers, hoping they'd taste better (like the description advises "cold") and he called from work and said, "Please don't ever make this again." politely, but hungrilly! followed recipe to the "T" except we didn't have any fresh mushrooms, so we ommitted. Taste: bitter, sweet, salty, bland, fishy (from the shrimp).

Stir-Fry Pork with Ginger

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2007
If I could give this 20 stars I would! I've been enlisted to start an "all Chinese" menu for 2 weeks or more, a la my husband and there have been 6 nights so far, when my husband dug into this with added stir fried veggies on Basmati rice, my husband said, "I think this is the best you've EVER made, yet!" and I agreed, along with all of our kids --except the 3 month old ;}! Very, very good, nice & salty & with the WW points system, this was 8 with the cup of rice, lower it with brown rice! Mmmm! I ended up adding more soy & a bit more Tahini (sesame oil) & then 1/3 cup water with a heaping tsp of corn starch to make more 'gravy,' which was sensational, by the way. No need to pass the salt.

Velvety Pumpkin Soup With Blue Cheese and Bacon

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
my daughter made this, doubled in fact, and it turned out just awful. We used fresh pumpkin, goat's milk (which is creamier than 1/2 & 1/2) and followed the instructions to a "t" --it looked lovely, smelled remarkable --but tasted like BLECH! We ended up pulling out the packaged of ready-mades & had an unhealthy dinner instead. boo hoo.

Muesli Bars I

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
My 10 year old son and I really enjoyed these, but my other kids didn't... Used Smart Blend instead of butter and walnuts instead of hazelnuts.

Rainbow Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2006
I don't know why but this recipe just needed sprucing up! I had to add Parmesan, carrot julliennes, parsely, muenster cheese cubed, cheddar shreds, and lots of salt to make this palatable to our famaly. it just had no zing, tasted like bland, oily noodles... maybe the dressing was to blame? I don't think so, though.

Fresh Corn Spoon Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2006
This is sitting in our kitchen, 1/2 served but not really consumed... we really didn't enjoy this. Too time consuming (stove watching & stirring) to really accomplish much else except maybe, MAYBE stir browning beef, but really, no one enjoyed it as I hoped. I think I'll try the Chi Chi's corn cake recipe, that's more like what I was hoping from this. More like a corn meal mush quiche.

A Number One Egg Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2005
I made this for a scrapbooking party and just made 2 round loaves. After they were finished baking & cooled, I sliced 1/4 of the tops off and hollowed them out. Then I cut the insides into chuncks, filled the "bowl" with spinach dip, arranged bread chunks around the bowl and, "Viola!" It was a fantastic treat! I also used this recipe to make "soup bowls" with cream of broccoli & cheese soup and everyone's plate was empty and I swear licked clean! (children too)

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
This was perfect for a "mom's too busy to cook/bake" dinner! Our not-too-experienced 11 yr. old daughter made this with flare!! She also threw an additional 1/2 cup of french fried onions on top, because she loves them! It was REALLY good! (we also added about 1/2 cup sliced, sauteed mushrooms. We omitted the soup + milk +spices in the pot +warm them up step... Why dirty an additional pot? She just stirred it into the drained noodles! Came out great & only 2 dishes to clean afterward. Smart girl, huh?)

Gyros Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2005
Maybe it's because I didn't have ground Lamb on hand, but I tried this with ground beef and these just didn't stick together. Fell apart & had to fudge them into the pitas... only to be absolutely, sadly disappointed as we were all anticipating a wonderful meal. This one's not going into my recipe box, sorry.

Cookie Dough for Ice Cream (Eggless)

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
Oh, man. This is too addictive. I used Smart Blend instead of butter, Almond milk instead of water and skipped the white sugar, since I added semi-sweet choco-chips... I couldn't stop our daughter from racing me to it! There's only the smallest bit left in the fridge & it's mine!!!
