Nana's Mashed Turnip

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2013
I doubled the recipe b/c I had so many potatoes--and it was devoured by the kiddos in no time. Calling it "Mashed Turnips" is a misnomer, though. This is mashed potatoes with added turnip. The turnip adds a nice unexpected sweetness every once-in-a-bite. You will really need to add salt to taste, and we added Herbomare and kelp to pop up the flavor, using a nice medley of multi-colored fingerlings for hte potatoes. Looked gorgeous with the purple skins ON and tasted really good. Saving this to the recipe box. Thanks.

Cauliflower Fritters

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2013
This is a "wow" on the tongue! I was pleasantly surprised. Read all reviews before starting, so I food processed yellow banana peppers and red onion in with the cauli. We only had one head of cauliflower, so I cut recipe in half. Next time I'll get another head of cauliflower! As we don't keep Italian dressing in the house I just added a mix of what might be equivalent: marjoram, sweet basil, kelp, freshly squeezed garlic, chives, parsley, tarragon, thyme, celery salt . . . but it still was lacking punch, so I added quite a bit of salt and then some paprika. Once it fried in the olive oil (with a wee bit of butter cut in), it was amazing! Thank you for this. I can see adding leftover mashed potatoes to the mix, kale, or artichoke hearts next time. It's a very flexible recipe--heat it up, mellow it out--all in your personal taste & preferences. Will stick this one in the recipe box to use again & again. And, no leftovers at all--phenomenal with a little aioli garlic mustard sauce on top, too! mmMMMmmm.

Cabbage Saute

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2011
Delish! I added a clove of garlic and the recommended cubed potato. The kids downed this meal & asked for more. Total hit for a warm winter lunch. Thanks!

Roast Pork Loin Chop

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2011
I was sorely disappointed in this recipe. Even with added garlic salt on top & beer replacing water per others' suggestions, the pork was bland, bland, bland. I followed cooking times to the letter, and it STILL came out dry, too. Bummer.

Cold Green Bean Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
Changed the servings to 24 for a party--then accidentally got French cut green beans--6 cans of beans only required 1 bottle(16oz) of Italian dressing--Holy cow! Any more would have been pucker-mouth city! And, no chance on three full onions--I only added 1/4 of one!! Cannot imagine eating this at its full ingredients amounts!!

Taco Seasoning Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Holy tamale! Too danged spicy! I'm making a 2nd batch to add to the first, but excluding the red pepper flakes & chili powder to try to find balance. My husband LOVES spicy foods, but this burned his mouth, so we'll try to save the batch.

Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
The very best thing about these amazingly light cupcakes is that the recipe is so flexible! I used almond butter, and WOW! Other substitutes were butter instead of shortening and rice milk for my milk. I used a light brown sugar, and organic vanilla. Baby boy turns ONE tomorrow, and these will be his precious first cake. I made them for friends & family & plan to serve them just as they are right now--not a smear of frosting necessary--yum, yum, yum!! I think I'll have a hard time keeping him to just one...or two...or three. Since it's his first nut product, that's another reason I used almond, but mostly just because we were out of PB! Organic, though. Organic almond butter & butter, etc...

Sweet and Sassy Hash Browns

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2010
Oh yeah! These are wow. Loved the sweet & hot together. I used 1/4 of a big Vidalia onion ("one onion" is really a LOT in that case), and kept the chile powder @ 1/8t (a pinch), instead of 1/4t, since I was cooking for the kids. Mmmmmmmm. I will definitely make this again.

Sherry Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
followed recipe to a tee--but the temp inside pork never reached 160 (125...), so we stuck it back in, and it still didn't get that hot, but was clearly cooked through. Ended up being rather dry...BUT, eating a bite of apple with each bite of pork made up for that issue easily. Quite tasty! Will do it again, following marinating advice from previous reviewers. We served with grilled Vidalia onions, BTW, and that was a nice combination with a cold beer.

Garlic Herbed Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2010
This was a disaster! I followed the recipe but thought 1 FULL T of pepper would be nuts--so I used 1/2 T. Even with others' suggestion to reduce the foil cooking time (I went with 30 instead of 40 minutes) ours was CHARRED--nothing about it was redeemable at all! Didn't even get to take it to Step Two of direct grill--it was totally dried out & ruined. When you say Grill on High, I guess that is a relative term!? Maybe a temp would be better than "High." We use gas--ours was over 400 degrees,,,

Ranch Dressing I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2010
Instead of sour cream & buttermilk, I used what I had in the fridge--vanilla yogurt--and it was AWESOME with the white pepper! I also used cayenne instead of the hot pepper sauce, as it mixed in as a powder so nicely, & left out the cheese (sheesh, it's already loaded with dairy), dropping the Worcestershire b/c we cannot eat soy. OK, so I changed it a lot, and I LOVED our version on this recipe--nice bite with the cayenne & white pepper. Yum as a dip for carrots, celery, cucumbers, etc. We'll keep it as I altered it. Thanks!

Deep Dish Potato and Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
Since I used dried thyme, I reduced the amount, but still found this very heavy on thyme. Also, I didn't care for the corn with the squash & potatoes. There are several other butternut squash recipes I prefer over this, so it's unlikely we'll make it again (with or without the crust).

Butternut Squash Fries

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Wow on the deliciousness factor! I followed others' advice to toss in a 1 gallon bag with olive oil & kosher salt, but added allspice instead of ginger/cinnamon/etc. b/c those are allergens for us, and allspice is a great substitute. Mine went about 25 minutes total & turned out VERY mushy, so that removing them from the sheet meant I was practically turning them into mashed squash instead of fries. I'll have to work on lowering the amount of oil next time to avoid soaking them to this level of mush--but still YUM!! Just eat 'em with a fork...

Ham Stir Fry with Couscous

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
We served this atop basmati rice instead of couscous, and I am quite certain that was a good choice. Additionally, as my daughter has a ginger allergy, I substituted paprika for ginger and used a soy substitute from this site for the soy (Mom & daughter both cannot eat soy). Everyone agreed this was THE best stirfry they'd ever had (& I stirfry often!). The soy sub had a little molasses in it, which added a really gentle sweetness to the brown sugar, and the ham we used was an apple smoked ham from Trader Joes. Without the water chestnuts on the pantry shelf, we did miss that little extra crunch, and will add it next time. Yes, there will be a next time. YUM! Thanks!!

Soy Sauce Substitute

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
As I am allergic to wheat, and my daughter is allergic to both soy AND ginger, we simply used paprika instead of ginger in this, and then chix bullion instead of beef (our beef cubes had SOY in them!), and it really turned out beautifully! Thank you so much--I made up extra & jarred it in the fridge for future use.

Festive Turkey Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Because of food allergies to both ginger & cinnamon, I used paprika & allspice in these meatballs, and the result was great! My kids gobbled it up, as did my husband, so we will make this again & again! Yum! Thanks.

Waffles I

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
We do not use bottled vegetable oil for any baking/cooking, so I used melted butter, and these came out wonderfully. The whole family gobbled up each and every one. Next time I may double so I can freeze some for a fast breakfast morning. Thanks!

Mustard Crusted Tilapia

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2009
The photo is deceptive--this isn't breaded all the way around--and you're seasoning filets, not patties. I followed the recipe with only one necessary change--we didn't have Italian breadcrumbs, so I used Japanese Panko crumbs--and it was quite good. We did have to add salt after it was cooked. Tilapia is cheap, but it's really hard to find a tasty recipe to make it less fishy for my husband; this recipe dressed it up enough that we'll continue to buy at the great price, knowing we have a good plan at home. YAY! Thank you.

Serbian Ground Beef, Veggie, and Potato Bake

Reviewed: May 28, 2009
I followed the suggestions to add more potatoes, and some garlic salt, and left out the dairy (as we're dairy-free). Since my daughter is allergic to cloves & cinnamon, I added an apple to give it a little sweetness, instead (I liked that addition, actually), but in the end this was OK, but not amazing. Cannot imagine it with fewer potatoes! The meat was pretty dry, regardless of my doubling the wine (as also suggested), even though I baked 5 minutes shorter than suggested time. I'll finish the dish, but my husband won't go beyond his ONE taste, and my kids are also resisting...trying to figure out how to manipulate it into something else--maybe a shepherd's pie? Ah well.
