Herbed Corn

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2011
I cut this down to serve 2 with the serving calculator. It was perfect! I didn't have Italian seasoning so I added a little ground oregano. We loved it!!! I will also make this sauce for cooked carrots in the future.

Mandarin Orange Fruit Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2010
Finally! I've been looking for a fruit dip that doesn't negate the healthiness of the fruit! This is wonderful! No sugar, no marshmallow creme, no pudding! Perfect! Thanks for sharing! :)

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
I would give this one star for taste, but because they are pretty and easy to make, I gave it two. I followed the instructions that others had posted about refrigerating and freezing. This is what they tasted like: super sweet mushy cake. The strawberry/white frosting with white coating did not go over well. No one ate more after their first taste. The German chocolate cake and pecan frosting wasn't as sweet, but still the consistancy of mashed cake with frosting was less than pleasing. They looked so pretty on my plate, and guests oooed and ahhhed over how they *looked* but no one asked for the recipe, and there were a lot of leftovers.

Mango Cashew Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2010
OK, I hate to review something as five stars when I modified it, but the basics of this is great! I think that the apples, mangos, and balsamic vinegar alone is amazing! Then what you choose to add after that is up to you. I used a pinch of kosher salt and that was it--no cinnamon or ginger--and it was absolutely perfect! I substituted walnuts for the cashews, and after toasting, I added them to each serving rather than the salad so they wouldn't get mushy. Yum yum!

Southwestern Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Amazing and awesome! I used organic tri-color rotini, frozen corn, and cherry tomatoes. Perfect--I couldn't stop eating it!!

Smoked Chile Cole Slaw

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
OK, but I don't think I'll make it again. It was good for something different, but it wasn't amazing.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Very good! I took someone's advice and added feta cheese, but only to each individual serving--didn't want it getting mushy in the frige. It also needed cumin and freshly ground black pepper. I've made tabbouleh with couscous before, and it would work great here, but the quinoa is so healthy that it's hard to justify the swap. I think this would be excellent with finely diced fresh jalepeno and cilantro or mint leaves (leave out cucumbers and parsely).

Strawberry Pineapple Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2010
Very yummy and great way to use up strawberries! I gave it four stars just because if you made it with nuts, I think it would be yucky. I left out the nuts and used frozen strawberries that I sliced. I also used 1 c. unsweetened applesauce and only 1/4 c. oil. I used organic cane sugar instead of regular--I think it gives it a warmer/richer flavor. And the next time I make this, I will leave out the cininnamon--I don't think it goes well with the straberries and pineapple. That all said, my husband loved this, and took it all to work with him!

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
Perfect as amended by someone else--1 c. powdered sugar, 3 tbsp. brown sugar. I skipped the nuts, doubled the recipe, and let it chill overnight before forming it into three balls for a snowman. I used regular chocolate chips for the eyes, nose, and buttons, and mini chips for the mouth. I also used pretzel sticks for the arms. Licorice would be cute for a scarf. I served this with teddy grahams--cinnamon and chocolate--I don't know how many times I had to write down the recipe! A huge hit!

Cranberry Orange Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
This bread is amazing and simple! I don't mix it as directed--I cream the butter (real, unsalted) and sugar (raw sugar--gives it a "warmer" flavor) for quite a bit. Then I add the egg. Then I alternate the dry ingredients and zest with the oj. Last, I fold in the cranberries by hand. I left out the nuts--I think they would absolutely ruin this recipe. The flavor is so perfect without the nuts. I've made this twice now, and it's big hit!!

Roasted Winter Squash Seeds

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2008
Wonderful! I used acorn squash seeds, and they were delicious. I made sure to leave some of the bits of squash on the seeds--didn't rinse them off completely--that adds nice flavor. Also, I accidentally forgot they were in the oven, and they baked for 30 mintues and tasted great--not burnt at all!

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
Very easy, very yummy. I made this in an 8x8 and this is the frosting I used: I mostly melted two squares semi-sweet chocolate in the microwave then added about a cup of thawed whipped topping--stirring until the squares were completely melted. I had plently of frosting left over. This was a big hit with my husband and his friends.

Zucchini-Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2008
Oh so yummy! I doubled the recipe--24 muffins--and followed the tips left by Lookin2Cook4GoodLookin--the review that starts, "Wow wow wow wow..." I left out the nuts. It only took my muffins 15 minutes to get done. Any longer, and the bottoms would have burnt. I will make this from on! Thanks!

Cozy Cottage Beef Stew Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2008
I love how easy this is! I changed the recipe a bit--left out the mushrooms, only used 1 onion and 2 cloves of garlic. For the meat, I used one round steak cut into cubes. Instead of cans of broth, I just made it from bouillon--but be sure to let the chicken stock cool completely before adding the flour. The last time I made this, I left out the tomato chunks but added more water to compensate. To me, the consistency is more like soup, and I've frozen all 12 cups for a hearty meal in the winter.

Kid-Friendly Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2008
This was my first attempt at making yeast bread--I finally got a stand mixer--and this recipe was perfect! I brushed melted butter on the tops after I took them out of the oven. The house smells great and the bread is yummy! After adding the initial amounts of flour, I only had to add 1/3 c. more of white and 1/2 c. more of wheat. Thanks for the easy to follow recipe!!

Chinese Napa Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
I love the idea of toasting the noodles! It made it all the more better! I used sunflower seeds since I was out of the others, but I'm looking forward to trying it with the almonds and seasme seeds. I didn't use nearly as much seasame oil as the recipe called for--that would be way too much in my opinion since it's such a flavorful oil. I used about two drops--which was plenty. Otherwise, I thought the dressing was perfect. Also, I used a small head of cabbage--and that was just right. A large head would have been too much.

Picnic Cake

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
The recipe would be great without the marshmallows. Mine rose to the top as the recipe said they would, but they burnt to a toasty crisp. Even if they wouldn't have burnt, they let large holes from where they rose--leaving large gaps in the cake. Very ugly. I gave three stars because the cake itself was good--just leave out the marshmallows.

Spinach and Sweet Corn Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2007
Very good! I was pleasantly surprised. I made several adjustments though: I used half the butter, and substituted fat free half and half for the heavy cream. I also used baby spinach and only 5 ounces or less. I hate the taste of cooked spinach, but I couldn't even taste it in this recipe! Wonderful! My husband didn't like it--said he could taste the spinach, but I think it was all in his head. I'd make this again, but in two batches--one with spinach, one without.

Absolutely Delicious Baked Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2007
I liked the flavors, but not the texture. I didn't like the rutabega and parsnips--I was hoping to find a good recipe for them, but I'm still looking. I only ate the potatoes and yams--had to throw the rest away.

Cauliflower Tossed Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2007
This is the only way I will eat olives! For some reason, they taste good in this recipe. The tarragon vinegar makes all the difference. I made a few adjustments to the amounts though--I doubled the dressing, used an entire head of cauliflower, and about 20 green olives thinly sliced. I also left out the blue cheese and added just some shredded cheese I had in the frige. I think the blue cheese would compete too much with the other flavors. By far, this is my favorite cauliflower salad!
