Creamy Turnip With Paprika Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2005
Yummy!! I didn't have quite enough turnips, so I added some celery to make up the volume. We ended up having this on a very hot day, so after tasting it hot and loving it, we decided to try it cold, and it was great that way too. I’m not sure which I liked better. This recipe is going into the file of foods I make every few months.

Oven Baked Zucchini Fries

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
Really good. We have never slurped down Zucchini so quickly. I had to fry it because the oven was busy and I changed it to saffron oil for a higher smoke point. Next time, if I were going to fry it, I would put on a egg coating, flour coating, egg coating and then crumbs and cheese coating so that more of the coating would stick to the zucchini. But since this was a baked recipe I would hardly hold that against this. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because it didn't have an epic enough "wow" factor. Peoples complements were all "for zucchini, this is great.." and I thought a five star shouldn't have the "for zucchini" qualifier.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
We were reduced to grunting. As soon as it was out of the oven and was close to being cool enough to eat, my husband I stood there taking bites and grunting to each other. I could not compose as hearty a recommendation.

Val's Hungarian Jewish Chopped Liver

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
This was very good. I made the full version as written, And the instructions are great and it came out yummy. My mother-in-law makes a simpler version with only butter, onion, chicken livers, eggs, paprika and salt/pepper.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2005
Fantastic. After reading the other reviews, I only added a cup of sugar and they turned out just sweet enough. They came out like blueberry muffins, and you couldn't tell the zucchini was there at all. I also added a little lemon zest, just because I had some i needed to use.

Aunt Mary's Eggplant Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2013
This recipe was put on our meal rotation board before we had finished eating. Just the right kind of tooth and smell and taste. We dubbed them vegetarian dinner cookies and will love them forever! But it all started on one or those nights, you know. Friday 10 pm and I still hadn’t managed to get a healthy meal together. I had two eggplants that needed to be eaten soon, so I saw this recipe and went for it. And then the normal “that kind of night” stuff stared to happen. What I thought was parsley was cilantro and I had to smash up some bagged croutons with a shoe because it turned out we didn’t have bread crumbs either. Oh and I froze it instead of refrigerated because I didn’t want to wait but then forgot about them for an extra half hour. I doubt anybody wants to replicate most of my mistakes, but do try it with cilantro sometime.

Jenn's Out Of This World Spaghetti and Meatballs

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2010
I really wasn't expecting much. How can a spaghetti sauce be universally loved? But this was wonderful! Like a tomato hug! It combines the comfort power of both spaghetti and meatloaf. Also, a few pots and few hours of unsupervised simmering and I had one yummy dinner, plus two in the freezer. Wow. I didn’t add the sugar but otherwise cooked to spec. Next time I would do a tiny few things different, like add some wine. But in general I don’t want to mess with this recipe too much because it has the foundational ratios just about perfect.

Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
I was in the middle of a late night, bunny slippered must have crunchy / salty / sweet / chewy super craving fit. I tried this recipe because I just happened to have all the ingredients. Who knew that I was soon to be in snack heaven? Dinosaurs walked the earth when my microwave was born so I actually upped all the times. Ok, that’s not quite true. I didn’t up the times when the popcorn was supposed to be in the paper bag. That’s because I didn’t use a paper bag. After I put in the baking soda I tasted it and said, good enough, mixed things together as well as I could in a large bowl and ate it. Remember, this was an EMERGENCY! I figured it was late enough that the popcorn police wouldn’t catch me. Turns out that the unmixed globs of caramel at the bottom were some of favorite bits. This stuff is wow.

D' Best Chicken N' Dumplings

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2005
They were OK. They did have the comfort food feel that I was looking for, but were otherwise rather bland and had a rather goopy feel in the mouth.

Scandinavian Almond Bars

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2012
Used it like graham crackers for a cherry pie crust and it was awesome! A perfect balance of sweets and flavors. As a cookie though -- I thought they were a little dry and really couldn't make up my mind if I liked them or not. My husband really liked them. He generally doesn't like sweets, where I do, so my guess is how people will like these is up to that. Oh, and they were very fast and easy to make.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
My husband was in hog heaven! He didn't use the dip, but slathered them with horseradish and yummed them right down. They reminded him of a sandwich that he ate growing up in Western NY called a Beef on Wick. Thanks!

Best Tuna Melt (New Jersey Diner Style)

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2009
Wow. Very good. Quintessential tuna melt. Only change we made was to use 2 pieces of bread and grill it in a sandwich press.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2005
I added a little imitation crab to increase our fish intake and to add to fun. Also, I let the patties set up in the freezer for about 30 minutes to help keep them together in the deep fryer. Will make this again.
