Dutch Apple Pie with Oatmeal Streusel

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2014
BEST TIP EVER: Freeze your butter solid, then shred it with a food processor. Makes it so much easier to work it into your recipe! I doubled the flour, added 1/4 tsp salt to the filling, and 1/2 tsp salt to the topping, and I used 6 cups of apples. The apples were just done enough. This may have been the best pie I've ever made. Thanks!!

Moist Chocolate Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2013
These were FABULOUS!! I made changes based on personal preferences, but the recipe is good AS IS!! 1. DEFINITELY add 1 tsp salt. 2. I used 1/4 cup STRONG COFFEE (cooled) instead of the milk, intensifies the chocolate flavor, you WILL NOT taste the coffee, I promise! 3. I used Vanilla Greek yogurt, because that's what I had. 4. Baked only for 16 or 17 minutes, and I also ended up with 18 muffins. Thank you so much, this is an EASY, KEEPER RECIPE!!!!

Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2012
For those missing the chocolate, add about 2 TBSP of cold brewed COFFEE... Enhances chocolate, doesn't taste like coffee, I promise. (if you're not a coffee drinker, keep a can of instant in your freezer for recipes). I used 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice in place of the four spices, but only to save steps. This is a KEEPER recipe, thanks for sharing!!

Very Chocolate Ice Cream

Reviewed: May 29, 2012
This was the PERFECT chocolate ice cream recipe!! Taste and texture were spot on... I felt like I was putting frozen ganache in my mouth... I did double the amount of semisweet chocolate (I used Ghirardelli chips), but I don't know that it was necessary. As another reviewer mentioned: DO NOT BOIL, make sure your chocolate is in small pieces (GRATE if possible), and use the best chocolate that fits your budget. You'll LOVE the results. O, and if you can find it... use MEXICAN Vanilla!!

Winter Vegetable Hash

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2012
I was looking for a recipe to use kale... EVERYONE in my family liked this, even the 4, 5 and 9 year olds!! I did a few things differently based on what I had (no bell pepper, onion instead of shallot). SOOO GOOD!!

Bread Machine Focaccia

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2011
This was wonderful!! I divvied up the dough into 8 mini loaf pans, allowed to rise a second time, and baked about 18 minutes. Perfect size for sandwiches, with a nice crust all around. Definitely sprinkle the top with kosher salt.

Ratatouille

Reviewed: May 13, 2011
This was really good!!! Often the acidity of tomatoes will keep onions from cooking, so, as suggested by another another reviewer, I also sauteed the onions with the garlic and the eggplant. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. My husband and I loved this! Definitely will make this again!

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
I really liked this! I used olive oil instead of the butter, and thinned with the extra cup of veg broth I had made but otherwise followed the recipe.

Best Ever Jalapeno Poppers

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
This is a good recipe with room to play! I leave out the bacon (not the flavor I wanted), add a couple cloves of garlic, 1 tsp onion powder and maybe 1/2 tsp salt to cream cheese mix. I pipe the filling using a zip lock bag, less mess! I use panko bread crumbs for the second dip, and fine bread crumbs for the third dip, and sprinkle the poppers with salt before the third drying... very crunchy, very good! My husband is an absolute FIEND for these, and after trying several recipes, this is the one we've settled on as our favorite. Thanks for such a good post!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2009
I wanted a sugar cookie recipe that could be used for both roll and drop cookies, and this is it. I actually mixed up about 1/4 of the recipe, scooped and baked for about 10 minutes with out chilling. They have a great flavor!! Make sure you DO NOT USE a non-stick pan, you want the flavor from the golden browned bottoms of the cookie!!

Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I needed a recipe that didn't call for celery, which I'm out of. I already had thighs and legs cooking when I went looking for this recipe, so I used those, and the chicken broth (rather than the water and chicken base). My frozen zucchini was shredded, so I used that (easier to sneak in), and since my son's tummy was upset, I left out the garlic and added seasoned salt. My other son LOVED this as much as I did, and he ate 3 bowls of the stuff!! Thanks for a keeper recipe, this was great!!

Chicken Suiza Cornbread Bake

Reviewed: May 15, 2009
This was good... I halved the recipe, so only used a can of creamed corn. Added my homemade taco seasoning to the bottom layer, and sprinkled some on top before the cheese.

Lentil Rice and Veggie Bake

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2009
Similar to another reviewer, I'm lazy. I sauted the veggies, mixed them with uncooked rice and lentils, etc... baked in the oven at 350, for about 45 minutes... It didn't really need to cook much longer, in my opinion. Good post, thanks!

Winter Energy Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
These are also really good as mini muffins... perfect for what I was looking for... a healthier snack for my kids than a handful of cereal or crackers. They're 2, 3 and 7, and they love these! I also really like the texture. Also, these seem to taste better "the next day" than fresh made... When they first come out, they seem to have a "healthy" taste to them... I used almonds and cranberries for the walnuts and raisins.
