Quinoa Black Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
This burger has great flavor. I used just a little more hot sauce but other than that, I stayed with the recipe. I think it needs more body to it in order to contrast with a bun, so we just eat it on a plate as bean patties. This will be a frequently used recipe in my file.

Mediterranean Kale

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
I generally dislike kale, but this recipe was pretty good. I did make a minor change. I thought the dressing was too lemony so I added a couple of teaspoons more olive oil. I also had to cook my kale a lot longer. I cooked it for about 20 minutes or so. Not sure if that is typical or not.

Blackened Fish

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
Excellent flavor! I only used 3/4 tsp of salt and I used cod instead of trout, but other than that I followed the recipe exactly. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the fish. I will definitely be making this again.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
We thought it was just okay. It didn't have as much flavor as I had expected. My husband didn't care for it...I think it is the texture of the lentils that he dislikes in particular. Most of the soup went to waste.

Garden Penne

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2010
This is very good, but makes much more than what my 9x13 baking dish would hold. The recipe says that it serves 6, but I think it would serve 10-12.

Baked Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2010
These were okay. They didn't have the flavor that I had hoped for. I also thought the filling was a little crumbly.

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: May 31, 2010
We did not like this at all. I can't really explain it. I think the curry just didn't go well with the tuna.

Barbecue Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: May 14, 2010
This is good barbecue as is, but to make it better, I did what others had suggested and used some broth from cooking the roast (I did mine in a crockpot on high for about 4-1/2 hours to 5 hours.) instead of the water. I also added some diced pickled jalepenos. My husband said it needed more barbecue taste so I added about a fourth cup of Bulls Eye barbecue sauce. After doctoring it up a bit it was 5 stars.

Restaurant Style Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
This was super easy to make and was very good. The only thing I did differently was leave out the egg yolk. I hate using only part of an egg.

Pickled Hot Peppers

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
I made these last summer. My husband said that they were way to vinegary. So I made several batches and experimented. I ended up using 6 cups of water and 3 cups of vinegar. I also added some salt "to taste" to the vinegar.

Black Bean and Corn Quesadillas

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Yummy! These are great for a meatless meal. They are filling and you don't find yourself wondering where the meat is. Watch them carefully when you cook the filled tortilla. They brown very quickly.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
Wonderful! Tender on the inside and crusty on the outside. Easy to make, too.

Fruit Cocktail Cake

Reviewed: May 12, 2010
This is fantastic! My mom always made fruit cocktail cake when I lived at home. We always liked it, but I felt that something was missing. Since I tried this recipe I haven't looked any further. The only thing I did differently was to put the 1/2 cup walnuts in the topping instead of the coconut and put the coconut that was listed for the topping and put it in the sauce. To sum it up: Topping - 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup walnuts. Sauce- same 1st four ingredients and 1 cup coconut. Putting the nuts in the topping seems to toast them and gives more of a caramel taste and a little crunch. This cake has been a hit with everyone who has tried it. Even my mom likes it better than hers.

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
I thought this was delicious. I took the advice of "Chefglo" (4-26-2010) and used a mixture of onion and red bell peppers in place of all onion. I also used fresh garlic and added salt to taste. So basically I followed the recipe. The only thing I did that was really different from the original recipe was to add a few hot pepper flakes. Thanks to Mommyto2 for a fantastic Mexican Rice!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
This soup was a little bland as is. It was better after I added 1/2 tsp. of tarragon and served it with shredded cheddar cheese.

Buttery Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2010
Excellent! I made half a recipe (6 servings) and filled greased muffin cups 3/4 or so full and it made 9 muffins. I baked them for about 17 minutes. They were light, tender, and had just the right amount of sweetness. Thanks Nicole!
