Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2015
Second time making this, and it's very good. I did use an 8x4 pan, so you get a little higher bread. Mine was done at 38 min, so it's a good habit to check baked goods earlier because you never know. Also added 1 tsp of vanilla. After I topped it with the cinnamon mixture, I gently swirled the batter a few times with a dull knife. I'm doing other things, and made a mistake, forgetting to add the oil! I realized this after it was in the oven for several minutes. I can't believe it's still very good! I did replace the milk with non-dairy creamer (richer) that needed to be used up, so that may have helped, too. I'll also make up for it when I spread the bread with butter when I have it! Nice, easy recipe!

Thai Peanut Dip

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2015
Very easy to pull together and so delicious! I had it with garlic chicken spring rolls, but it is so versatile. Could be served over pasta, with chicken tenders or as a veggie dip. Only added a few pinches of cayenne pepper, and used Miracle Whip in place of the mayo and it worked great.

Baby Spinach Omelet

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2015
I've made this twice already in the past week! So delicious, filling and easy to throw together. I usually only use one egg for an omelet, so I halve the recipe, and it turned out just great. I sprinkled the parmesan on after it was plated, not into the mixture. Thanks for a keeper of a recipe, HOLLYJUNE!

Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2015
I love how the peanut butter melts into such creamy goodness! Something very different that could be a quick lunch, how I enjoyed it, or as a snack anytime. I did spread the bread with spreadable butter instead of using cooking spray. Thanks for the easy and delicious recipe, KATIES8422!

Mustard Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2015
This was so easy to make and was excellent over a large tossed dinner salad. I went with the 3:1 oil to vinegar ratio (used white wine vinegar) and for the oil used half olive oil and half canola. I went heavy handed with the garlic, and also found that I needed to add more honey. Overall a delicious vinaigrette that I know I'll make again. Thanks sal!

Sweet Pea Mockamole

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2015
This is a delicious and healthy snack or appetizer that goes great with tortilla chips. You will be disappointed if you expect it to taste like regular guacamole (partly because you know what you put in it). If that's what you want, then make guacamole with avocados! In it's own right, this is something very good and different. Nice recipe!

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2015
Yes, I would say it's the best! This came together very quickly and with simple ingredients. Instead of stewed tomatoes, I used a large can of crushed tomatoes, so there was no need to process. I sauteed the onion and added 3 cloves of garlic for the last few minutes. Made some other minor changes: 1 tblsp of dried parsley, 1 tsp dried basil, a bay leaf and 2 tblsp of brown sugar. Better than anything you'd find at the grocery store or a fine restaurant! Thanks Jackie for this keeper of a recipe!

Honey Mustard Sauce for Dipping

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2015
This wasn't bad, but I prefer honey mustard sauces that are more creamy. It was probably the large amount of oil in this recipe that gave it a different texture and taste. I cut the amount of oil in half, too. To me, you don't need to add oil to get a good honey mustard sauce.

Blue Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2015
This was delicious! I love blue cheese, and just the addition of it takes the standard cucumber salad to a whole new level. I would never have thought to add it to a salad like this, but it really works here. The onions also add a nice sweetness. Thanks madermouse for the great recipe and for the info on the sour cream as well!

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2015
I preferred to saute the onions/mushrooms (rather than boil); it just seems to bring out the flavors more. I used a combination of sliced mushrooms and 1 oz of shitakes. After soaking the dried shitakes, I reserved some of their liquid and used that in combination with the chicken broth. I pureed only half of the finished mixture, wanting some mushroom pieces in the soup. I think this will be better as it stands in the next day or so. Thanks for the recipe!

Banana-Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2015
Since my bananas were fairly small, the banana flavor was very subtle, but that was fine with me. I increased the zucchini to 2 cups as many reviewers recommended, and that was a good call. For the oil, I used applesauce and added oil to equal the 3/4 cup. Like I usually do with breads, I cut back on the sugar and added 2 tblsp of ground flax seed. I also added a pinch of nutmeg and cloves.

Taco Salad III

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2015
This was a delicious, one-dish salad for supper. I preferred just adding all of the ingredients to the top of the butter lettuce mix I had as opposed to mixing them all up. I'm sure that would work great for a crowd, though. I used leftover sloppy joe mix, because I like to use what I have on hand. In place of the pinto beans, I used light red kidney beans. I liberally sprinkled homemade taco seasoning mix over the salad before adding the dressing. The Catalina dressing works really well here, and I used my own homemade version from another site. I also used tortilla chips instead of corn chips. Thanks for the great recipe, Melanie!

Lemon-Parsley Green Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2015
Delicious and very fresh tasting! I eyeballed all of the ingredients, adding to my preferences. I also added lemon juice but skipped the zest. I had some feta cheese crumbles on hand, so I added a little to see how they'd work, and they went really well with the beans. Thanks for the easy and delicious recipe, Rachel C.!

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2015
The first time I made these I used liquid non-dairy creamer in place of the milk. This time I used the powdered buttermilk that you add water for the liquid. Both times they came out great. I just didn't knead too much and also chilled the shortening. The bottoms browned too quickly, so I may try lowering the oven temp the next time. Great recipe, though. Thanks John P.!

Pineapple and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2015
This was one delicious smoothie! My banana was frozen so I chose not to add the ice cubes; I think it came out more creamy (as opposed to frosty) by doing that. Like I usually do with smoothies, I also added a few tblsps each of ground flaxseed and vanilla protein powder. Here, I also added 1 tblsp of melted coconut oil. It was also a nice change not adding the usual yogurt. Great tropical tasting smoothie that I know I will make again! Thanks VERITY78!

Sweet, Spicy, and Salty Popcorn

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2015
This was something different, and I enjoyed the half batch I made. I like spicy, but when it comes to cayenne (or any spice, for that matter, that I think may be too much for me), I usually cut back....and that was a good call here. I'd cut back a little on the cinnamon, too. Just as the submitter mentioned, you can adjust the spices to your own tastes. I would never think to combine these flavors, but they work! Thanks for the good recipe, allareine!

Baked Tomatoes Oregano

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2015
Even though the recipe is called Baked Tomatoes Oregano, I didn't want a strong oregano flavor so I went light with the oregano. I DID want a more garlic flavor, so using garlic powder, I went heavy-handed with it. Instead of the bread crumbs, I used crushed buttery round crackers (which I'd prefer over bread crumbs anyway) to which I added a few tblsp of melted butter just to bring it together; then added the garlic powder, a bit of pepper, and also added in a Parmesan and Romano cheese combo. I had some jalapeno cheddar cheese that needed to be used, so I topped half of the slices with some pieces of it (those were very good). I followed some of the reviewer's suggestions and baked them at 350 for 11 min and then broiled for a minute. Other cheeses (such as mozzarella) would be great here, too. I can imagine these will be SO much better when the good, garden tomatoes are in season. Thanks for the recipe!

Caramelized Onion and Horseradish Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2015
A few ingredients can really change plain old mashed potatoes into something very different and delicious! I used half of the onions, and it was plenty. I would always add something like horseradish and mustard gradually, because it could be too much for your own tastes. This went well with the Easter ham dinner. Thanks for the recipe!

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2015
I don't care for tuna salad with a lot of mayo. I would never add 6 tblsp of it to one can of tuna. When it comes to amounts of ingredients in recipes, to me it's common sense to use amounts that work for you and your own taste and preferences. Otherwise you ended up tossing and wasting, and that's not good. I only added about a tblsp of mayo, and it still came together nicely and was not dry (less calories, too!). I also added only 1 tblsp of relish, more garlic powder and a bit of salt and pepper. The spices did combine for nice flavor.

Coconut Lime Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2015
This was SO delicious! I had it with Marrakesh Vegetable Curry from this site (really good, btw). I didn't add the coconut flakes, not wanting to open a large bag, but I'm sure they'd work well here. I also did not add the zest. My preference was for a sweeter rice, so I added 1-2 tsp of sugar. Leftovers could be good on their own or made into a rice pudding. Thanks for a very flavorful recipe, Karmabelle!
