Soft Pretzels

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
I haven't made actual bread items in years, but I wanted to give the dough hook some use from my Kitchenaid. So I followed this recipe except changed a few things. Instead of cutting dough into 32 pieces, I cut into 16 which made bigger pretzels. This is perfect for using these as rolls for pretzel sandwiches. I also brushed with egg mixture and salt, but once they came out of the oven I also put melted butter on top. Make sure you store these in a airtight container/bag and you can easily store or freeze them and warm up in mixrowave for about 15 seconds. Super moist and chewy. I'll make these again!

Mushroom Rice

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
This was pretty good. I found I had to cook a bit longer for the rice to cook 100% through, however I doubt it was the recipe's fault (probably mine.) I'll make again, maybe throwing some dill in next time.

Olive Chicken II

Reviewed: May 3, 2008
Delicious. The sauce is very runny, however so I suggest thickening it. I used cornstarch which worked OK. The flavor was delicious, and the green olive flavor was not overpowering as I had thought they would be. I used canned tomatoes with basil and chopped them up for extra flavor. Will be making again, next time with pasta (not rice).

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
I don't know if a recipe could possibly be any more perfect. This was a recipe my mom referred me to after she raved about it herself. I let it marinate 24 hours, and although the balsamic vinegar did turn it a darker color, nobody minded at all. It really soaked up all of the flavors and made SO much that I was able to use the leftovers for a second loaf of bread the next time! This will be considered one of my all-time favorite recipes.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
Very delicious, very moist, easy to make. I used about 6 bananas that I had let over-ripen for about 1.5 weeks. I do suggest adding nuts though, I realize it would really add to the bread. Goes a long way!

Baklava

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2008
OK, this recipe really is fool-proof!!! I love greek food, and wanted to make this to see if I could. I have never worked with Phyllo before, and didn't realize you needed to thaw it COMPLETELY before working with it. Well, needless to say I didn't and because it was frozen, trying to pull sheets off caused it to shred. But I kept on going, figuring I didn't want to waste it. Sure enough, even laying shreds of dough STILL TURNED OUT PERFECT! They have lasted over a week, and I love that they didn't turn into bricks of overly sweet sugar-messes that some baklava seems to be. They have just the right amount of sweetness and they make a huge pan! I'll make these again for Christmas. Oh by the way, use pecans and walnuts! They are divine!

Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
Pretty darn good, except you won't like these if you don't like cilantro. I always make this half and half (with and without the cilantro.) On my half with cilantro, I also use low fat sour cream and cheese, and they turn out delicious. I've made this with both flour tortillas, and corn tortillas, and surprisingly enough I prefer the flour. I like how they turn out chewy, the corn tortillas just fell apart. Make as directed or omit the cilantro!

Mexican Corn Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I was excited to make this as a side dish for enchiladas and beans, but I was pretty disapointed in the lack of flavor. It was nice to have fresh chopped veggies on the plate, but it really lacked seasoning and flavor. I thought the spicy salsa and fresh jalapenos added would do the trick, but it wasn't enough. :(

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
I baked them for my boyfriend (firefighter in training) to bring to his firefighter buddies. They were hit! I'd even give them five stars except they were a pain to make. I even tried to flatten the chocolate dough and plop a peanut butter mixture on top, then wrap around. Still pretty hard to cover the peanut butter. My chocolate dough didn't turn out too crumbly, but I followed the directions EXACTLY and I realize that by mixing the wet ingredients into the dry VERY thoroughly with my kitchenaid, they went from dry to moist - maybe this is the problem others are running into, they are undermixing. Anyhow, They cracked when I flattened so for that reason alone I may add a little extra water or maybe a couple of tblspoons of sour cream to avoid that. The end result was worth the effort! Don't skip the sugar on top...and these go great with milk.

Apricot Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2008
I had been itchin' to make muffins for a few weeks now, and my mom sent me this recipe. I was a little worried because I don't like cakey muffins, I like them much more dense. Well, I added some dried cranberries in place of half of the apricots, and also added about 1/2 cup of walnuts. THEY TURNED OUT SO DELICIOUS! Perfect consistancy. I should note that I totally forgot to add the 1 egg, but I wonder if thats why they were the dense consistancy I liked. Still good minus the egg and less fat! I'll continue to do sans egg.

Best Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2008
REALLY easy to make, and it went well with my enchiladas. Mine had the perfect amount of flavor with the onions and cayenne.

Dolmathes

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2008
Following the recipe as-is would probably yield about 3 stars, it's not lemony enough. But I made the following additions and had rave reviews from my dinner guests: While rice was simmering, I added about 2 tablespoons of dried dill but also added the fresh dill as directed later. The recipe calls for the juice of 1 lemon while the rice is simmering? Forget that! I added like 3/4 cup! It wasnt fresh either, I used the bottled stuff to save time. After rice was done simmering, I followed directions but I also added about 1 tablespoon of fresh chopped mint. After stuffing leaves and placing in the pan, again I put approx 3/4 cup of lemon juice and about 1/4 cup of olive oil on the tops of them all. I baked them as directed, and then right after they came out of the oven, I squeezed a fresh lemon on the top and let it cool. I prefer these cold, so I served them as such. ENJOY!

Dill Poached Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2008
I can't believe how delicious something so healthy could taste! I followed the recipe but also added fresh garlic and chopped shallots to the broth. It turned out flavorful and juicy. Next time I may try to thicken the broth leftovers and add some capers, then use as a sauce over pasta. My boyfriend who is very picky about fish said this is one of his top 10 favorite dishes.

Mini Cheesecakes

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2008
I love cheesecake, and these were really good. I added about a tablespoon of flour and about a teaspoon of vanilla extract. YUMMY! I can see someone getting pretty creative with variations - caramel, raspberry, etc. I'll whip these ones up again.

Creamed Spinach III

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Simple to make, tasty. I agree that the nutmeg flavor is the key here. Otherwise it would just be runny creamed spinach!

Crustless Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
I made this so that I would have leftovers to use for breakfast the following couple of days. I added lots of onions, chopped ham, and lots of garlic. Pretty dang good. Is it the best? Probably not but I would make again because I'm always looking for an easy low-carb breakfast.
