Sweet and Savory Kale

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
Needed something to do with the Kale from my CSA that wasn't a soup. I've never had Kale before. This was very good. Next time I'll go lighter on the mustard. Once it cooks down, I'd say it's closer to enough for 2 large side portions vs the 6 mentioned in the recipe (like spinach, it really cooks down!). We'll make it again.

Fresh Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
Ever hear of people taking seconds of SALAD at Easter dinner?! This was very tastey. It looks like a lot of work, but using precooked bacon from the store, some Easter eggs we already had, and baby spinach I didn't have to rip much, it was really fast. Plus, all the dressing ingreadients *just* fit in my minichopper (didn't need to lug out the big blender or food processor). We used extra light olive oil and skipped the water chesnuts. It makes a lot of dressing so we had some on some romaine the next day with lunch (of course with bacon and chopped up Easter eggs) and it was still really good.

Rhubarb Dream Bars

Reviewed: May 20, 2011
One of my best rhubarb things yet! I subbed 1/2c golden flax meal for 1/2c of the flour in the crust b/c I like the slightly nutty flavor (and extra fiber). Halved the sugar in the rhubarb/egg mixture, and was a little generous in my rhubarb measurement. REally a keeper. I'm hoping they'll freeze ok. I can't stop eating them. Update-- it's 2 months later and they froze like a dream.. I cut them before freezing and put them between layers of wax paper in a plastic storage container.

Colossal Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2009
Really good. I flatten with the bottom of my measuring cup and then put M&M's on top (in smiley face design) before they bake. I skip the choc. chips. My stand mixer can barely handle mixing these.

Carrot Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
Used almonds and jasmine rice because that is what I had. We really enjoyed this, but I need to add that I never do anything with myrice so this was a nice change. Make sure you almost caramelize the onion. Yum!

Speedy Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
My boys (6 and 3) loved these, as did I. The pan on the lower oven rack had more of a toffee/caramel taste and the ones on the upper rack had more like a creamy frosting.. both were delicious.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2009
Defrosted the hasbrowns. Added a diced & sauteed onion, a defrosted & squeezed block of spinach, and some freshly ground pepper. Used light sour cream. Delicious. My husband and 22month old loved it. My 5 yr old did not but I expected as much. We ate it for dinner (and have enough for at least one more meal). Thanks!

Abby's Chicken Rollatini

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2005
I've made this a few times and it's delicious! I make more sauce than the recipe calls for (and increase the wine to oil ratio) b/c it's really tasty. Also, I put in a fresh basil leaf in the chicken. When you're done, put the chicken on a bed of rice (boxed quick & easy rice of course) on a nice big serving tray and frame with some mircrowaved frozen broccolli florets and people think they're having a fancy meal that really was very easy.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2005
YUMMY! My husband and I loved it.. Made it for just us once and then made it for guests. We had a lot of extra chicken broth in the house so we actually poached the chicken and veggies in that instead of water. It's a good idea to hold off on adding the peas.. cook them until they're just cooked in the microwave and add them in to the mixture just before putting them in the crust. Keeps them less mushy. I brushed the bottom crust with egg white and prebaked a little bit (5 minutes or so) to avoid soggy-ness. I love garlic and minced up a clove to cook with the onions. Overall, looks like a lot of work, but goes very quickly and made for excellent comfort food.

Kugel

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2012
Great! Made it for a Hanukkah party and was nervous because I have never had it. My Jewish friends said it was excellent! I added 1tsp cinnamon and doubled the topping. Separate the eggs while they are cold, but don't whip the whites until they are room temp. Made a rather fluffy dish! Yum!

Aunt Norma's Rhubarb Muffins

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
Maybe my rhubarb wasn't as fresh as it should have been or maybe it's b/c I subbed 1/2c whole wheat for some of the white flour, but I kind of found these bland and boring. My favorite part was the buttery sugar topping (that I sprinkled on during the last 5mins in the oven).

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
Delicious! I've made this several times following the recipe exactly, but today tried with 1/2cup applesauce and 1/2cup veggie oil and 2 cups white flour, 1 1/2 cups whole wheat. Couldn't tell the difference. Oh, did 375degrees, 30 minutes for 19 muffins (they were big ones-- filled the muffin cups). My 5yr old and 2 yr old love the muffins, as do I.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
I put WAY too much curry in (T instead of t) but this still tasted great! I ended up pureeing everything with my immersion blender after it cooked a while and THEN added *cooked* chicken cubes. I used brown rice I had cooked ahead of time. I added a handful of raisins for more sweetness (was worried about how a big granny smith would taste). My 18mo. old loved it. Next time, I may puree in some chopped spinach as well although I'm sure the soup will be a less attractive color.
