Garlic Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: May 4, 2008
Excellent, very easy recipe. I used thigh meat instead, and substituted Italian parsley for cilantro. Marination time was at least 4 hours. It came out tender and juicy.

Nanaimo Bars III

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
Absolutely fantastic. The only variation I made was not adding the top layer. They were perfect.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2014
If you're going to make Brussels sprouts, this is the way to do it! The easier way to go, is to get a deep casserole dish, forget the plastic bag, just put in the oil and Brussels sprouts and stir well, adding the salt and pepper after they are well coated. Then, every 10 minutes or so, stir them again. A little trick I learned, when they are done, turn the oven off and leave them sit in there until they cool down a little, if you have the time. This will give them a nice brown color all over, and a really delicious flavor!

Purple Plum Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2008
Very easy to make and absolutely wonderful. I thawed out plums I had frozen and they worked just fine. Also, I reduced the sugar in the filling to half of what was called for and it was perfect.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
Really awesome cookies! I added a little bit of full fat cocoa and left out a little of the pudding mix to make them a little more chocolaty, and they were amazing!

Burrito Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
This is a nice little, easy recipe that can be easily tailored to your specifications. I used soy ground beef, some leftover salsa, mozzarella and of course WAY more garlic than in this recipe as my changes and it was delicious. It makes great leftovers too!

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2009
This is the best thin-crust pizza dough recipe I have found yet! I just mix it up in the food processor and it turns out perfect every time! The flavor of the dough really shines through, it's not just a toppings holder. To make this dough even better and easy to manage, add about 2 Tb and 2 tsp vital gluten. Let the dough sit overnight in the refrigerator and bring it out about 2 hours before you're ready to stretch it out. Amazing what a difference this makes.

Citrus Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2009
As others have stated rubbing the salt is not necessary, it will be soaking in brine overnight. This was an awesome recipe. I have brined before, but using citrus was the best! I added a tart apple and sage as well.

Garlic Chive Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2009
This was one of the best chicken dishes I've had in a while, and I'm giving this the full 5 stars, but only after my adjustments, which were not major. Most importantly, I used half the amount of chicken, so if you're following the recipe as written, double everything but the chicken, or the sauce will not be sufficient. I cut the raw chicken into bite sized pieces before tossing in flour, and deep fried it until light brown. Everything else I did the same, except I fried the chives in the sauce for a few minutes at the end. This was devoured!

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2009
Very easy to make, in fact no need to drag out the mixer. I used chopped cashews in lieu of walnuts, and used about 1/3 cup of whole wheat, because in sweet baked goods you can do this without ruining the flavor. Perfect moistness, with a little firmness.

French Crepes

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2008
Delicious, but I found using all purpose flour I had to increase the amount of flour to 1 1/4 cups.

Picadillo

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2010
Believe it or not, I made this recipe using soy ground meat. Since there is no need to cook it, I added it towards the end, just enough to heat it up. Also, many picadillo recipes call for raisins, which I added, about a quarter cup. I can't wait to make it again!

Blackened Shrimp Stroganoff

Reviewed: May 18, 2010
This recipe was very easy, and very tasty! Instead of Cajun seasoning I used Old Bay, 1.5 tsp, and it was perfect! I also substituted one small onion for the shallots. What a great blend of flavors!

Gomen Wat

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2010
This recipe was amazing, way better than I imagined it would be, but there are some minor alterations I would like to add. First off, when chopping the collards, remove the hard stem. What I did was sort of cut an elongated V shape up the center of the leaf to remove the most of the hard stem and rib together. Also, I dumped all of the collards and the water into a large bowl, and used the same vessel the collards had been in to cook the onion. When ready I poured the collards, water and all, back into the onion mixture. This saved some time and energy.

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
I loved the way this recipe used very simple ingredients to their optimum. In fact, the only change I made was leaving out the basil, as I didn't feel it necessary with the other flavors.

Berry Crumb Bars

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
This is probably the best cobbler recipe I havw run across. I don't think it really needs much in the way of changes, but I made some anyway: used butter (of course), reduced the sugar in the dough by 1/4 cup, used 2 cups of whole wheat flour and one of white, used a mix of fresh berries (very ripe), and added more than a pinch of cinnamon and added a touch of mace. Beautiful!

Chicken Costa Brava

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
I made this recipe using the changes from Zelda Sayre, posted on 1/9/08, and it was perfect! I did not increase the salsa to 1 cup like she says, but left it at 1/2 cup, and it was just enough to give it a kick without overwhelming the other flavors. The amount of chicken needs to be decreased, or the spices increased. I actually made it in the pressure cooker, so, after browning the chicken and adding the other ingredients (except the pineapple and cornstarch) I closed the cooker, brought it to pressure, and 10 minutes later it was ready, with only the sauce needing to be thickened.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies VII

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
I'm giving this 5 stars based on the recipe with the following changes: reduced white sugar to 1/2 cup, added honey instead of brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1 tsp vanilla, used whole wheat flour and added 1/2 tsp baking powder, added 1/2 tsp ground cloves. Found it easier to handle once chilled. It is delicious, addictive, and very easy to make!

Libby's® Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2010
The only substitution I made in this recipe was the fact that I only had turbinado sugar (which is already a little like granulated brown sugar) and I didn't make the sour cream topping, which I didn't find was necessary. It came out wonderfully, and the instructions were very easy to follow!
