Chinese Cabbage Salad I

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I was concerned this would turn out too sweet, but it came out perfect. I made the dressing beforehand, and then tossed the toasted ramen and cashews with it and the cabbage right before I served it. 8 people finished it off in a matter of minutes.

Pat's Baked Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2009
I've made this twice now, once with the baking method, and once in the slow cooker for 8 hours. I prefered the slow cooker version, the beans are softer and the flavors seem to mix a little bit better. Plus, it's just easier!

East Indian Split Pea Pilaf

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2009
I was hoping for a more pronounced split pea taste, so next time I'm going to use more peas instead of rice. Maybe 1 cup of each. It smelled great and tasted very good, perfect for a side dish with Indian chicken.

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2009
This is the only chocolate chip recipe I use. Perfect after 12 minutes in the oven!

Mac and Cheese Henwood Style

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2009
This recipe asks for four ounces of macaroni. Four ounces is about a cup. The amount of sauce this makes is WAY too much for one cup of pasta! Luckily I made 8 ounces, thinking this was going to be a problem. It was creamy, but I couldn't taste the blue cheese at all! It needed garlic too, I thought. If the measurements were right, then this would be a nice, creamy pasta but save your blue cheese for something you can taste it in! My favorite recipe is still Mom's Macaroni and Cheese (submitted by Maria Costello).

Easy Polenta with Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
I made this with "World's Best Pasta Sauce!" I layered this like lasagna: polenta, mozzarella, sauce, polenta, mozzarella, sauce, and topped it off with a final layer of polenta. I cooked it the next night for about 30 minutes (uncovered) since it had been in the fridge. It was very good!

Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
Very tasty for quiche! I made this for the "Spinach Quiche" recipe from this site and I am looking forward to leftovers!

Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2009
I should've read the most useful reviews! I used this recipe with the "Butter Flaky Pie Crust" from this site, and it was too much for my regular pie plate. It actually was so watery; it went above my pie crust and underneath it! I thought the quiche was ruined for sure! Baked it for 50 minutes and it turned out great, though I'm sure the crust would've tasted better had I not filled it so much. Subbed blue cheese for the feta, and next time I'll use half the milk it calls for.

Sour Cream Banana Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2009
I doubled everything, which is essential if you want it to fill the bundt pan better. Next time I'll use brown sugar instead of white in the center, but otherwise this came out very nice!

Sicilian Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
I doubled this recipe, and then put it over 16 ounces of pasta. I too felt I wouldn't like it cold, so it simmered on the stovetop until the rest of dinner was ready. It smelled great, so I had high hopes! It did not disappoint, it was awesome! Such a nice change to have the nuts in the sauce too! I am looking forward to leftovers tonight!

Basil Pesto Bread Rounds

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
I put this on leftover pita bread instead, and then cut it into wedges to go with pasta. A nice change of pace from garlic bread!

Baked Zucchini Chips

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2009
I sliced these very thin, and added garlic powder and doubled the parmesan cheese. I baked for 10 minutes on one side, flipped them, and then baked them for another 10. I broiled them at the end too to make sure they were crispy.

Roasted Beets 'n' Sweets

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2009
Well, the verdict is still out on whether I like beets. But this was interesting, to say the least. I liked the flavor of the roasted beets, just wasn't sure about the texture. And since I wasn't sure how soft they should be, I think I overcooked them a bit. Before serving, I crumbled a little bit of fresh goat cheese on top, which made this dish awesome, with melty goat cheese, how can one go wrong?

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
This was good, but I think using regular coconut milk and regular soy sauce would make it so much better! I'm used to the curry at my favorite Thai restaurant being so much more flavorful and creamy with the coconut.

Grilled Baked Potatoes

Reviewed: May 27, 2009
These were very good, and an easily adaptable recipe too for different spices. I used new white potatoes, and this cooking method was not long enough. They needed more time boiling or more time on the grill to get them finished. I will make this again though!

Lemon Square Bars

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
I made this using key limes instead of lemons and it still came out beautifully! Squeezing and draining those limes was a little more effort, but so worth it!

Fresh Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
There was no way I was using 5 serranos, too painful! I subbed one jalapeno instead and it was perfect. I also added a clove of chopped garlic. Will make this again!

Minnesota Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: May 25, 2009
This was the first thing finished at a barbecue this weekend. I had never made a broccoli salad using anything other than raw broccoli, so I was concerned I would mess it up. It turned out perfect! I wish I had made more though, I've already been requested to make it again!

Cabbage Fat-Burning Soup

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
All the veggies in the soup really appealed to me, but I don't know if I'd make it again. Maybe without the onion soup mix? This was the first time I've ever used that soup mix and it was pretty salty. I also added garlic. If I make it again I'll add garbanzos and some different seasonings instead of the soup mix.
