Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2010
A grown-up twix bar. These are so good and very addictive. I doubled and did the 9 X 13 pan - I did have to cook my shortbread layer for almost 30 min to get it done all the way. The tip to score and then refrigerate, then cut was great. They came out beautifully!

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
I almost didn't make this but had some extra pumpkin puree left over, I am so glad I did. This is really good!! I also followed the recipe exactly, well, I may have had a heavy hand on the cinnamon and I glazed it....but other than that ;-) Its perfect!! Moist and flavorful and perfect for the holidays!!

Jo's Rosemary Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
This is GOOD! It does taste like the bread at Macaroni Grill. It turned out softer though, I'd love to get a chewier crust, but I wont complain! I used my bread machine to make the dough and then baked in the oven at 375 for 30 min (I tested at 20...not quite done all the way through). I drizzled olive oil on top and sprinkled with sea salt flakes after I took it out of the oven, the loaf is beautiful and so yummy!

Pesto Quinoa

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
This was so simple and tasty! I did add 3T of pesto, used veggie broth and a bunch of little grape tomatoes. Then I decided to add more - some baby spinach, black olives and garbanzo beans. Nice addition to my "quinoa recipes". Thanks.

Enchilada Meatballs

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
I made without any changes. It was for my dh, I do not eat meat. He said it was a bit bland. I would've added more seasoning (maybe some garlic, onion, etc), but wanted to try it as written as he tends to like simple things :-) If he thought it was bland...well, I'd definitely spice it up if you are trying. I served it over rice with onions and green peppers that I sauteed. He doesnt like taco seasoning, so I didnt try adding any to the cornbread, but I bet that would add some flavor.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
So easy and my DH loves it! I also put the noodles in hot water while cooking the sauce instead of boiling them separate. Turns out just fine. Thanks for the great recipe!

Pumpkin Chili Mexicana

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2010
I made a vegetarian version, used 2 cans of black beans and one can of pinto beans. I increased the spices/seasonings, added extra corn and some chopped green bell pepper also. I blended my tomatoes up before adding as I don't like tomato chunks in my soups/chili's :-) This is really good and so good for you!!

Hummus III

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
This is good! I had to thin it a bit with the bean liquid (remember to reserve some or you can use water) - I also added extra parsley and maybe 3 T total of olive oil - I used smoky paprika, next time I will try a bit of cayenne too! I used the full amount of tahini and lemon juice and it was to my tastes (some tahini's are more bitter than others, the jar I have is pretty mild and I like the flavor). I've tried a few recipes and this is my favorite so far! I'm coming back to edit....I believe I've been using to cans of garbanzo's instead of two cups :) I just made a couple days ago, and for the life of me can't remember!! So - keep that in mind when making, you may like it better with 2 cans of beans and everything else the same :) I've made this so much since finding this recipe - it really is good stuff!

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2010
This is good, I dont know if I think of it as soup though, I'm eating over rice and its delicious. I did 2 tsps granulated garlic - I love garlic! 1 jalapeno with some of the seeds/membranes, about 1/2 tsp cayenne and no black pepper - the rest of the spices I kept the same. I also added some chopped green pepper. I love these kinds of meals as you can change it up and serve it different ways, and beans freeze well. It does smell more flavorful than it actually is, but its easy to add stuff to get the taste you want. I love that its inexpensive and can be done in the crockpot or on the stove. OH - mine is not too spicy - but it all depends on the heat of your peppers and types of chili powders/hot sauce. I used the tabasco chipotle sauce - you can always leave out the cayenne and hot sauce and add to taste when the beans are done. OK - I had to come back and change my rating to 5 stars...I've still got my beans cooking and added a bit of flour as I want it to thicken up a bit, but the flavor has just gotten better and I keep eating bites out of the crockpot - I'm going to keep cooking longer to let it thicken, but this is really good!

Bean Soup With Kale

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
Easy and good. I made as directed and tasted - it was yummy (I love all the garlic in it!), but I was wanting a bit more of a tomato flavor so I added a small can of tomato paste and a pinch of cayenne. Its not pretty, but tastes yummy and makes you feel healthy eating it! I may add an extra cup of kale next time and maybe a bit of potato. I cant wait for winter as I bet it tastes even better on a cold, snowy day!

Nicole's Winter Carrot Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
These were just what I was looking for to make for my boys to eat for breakfast. I used 1.25 cups AP flour and 1.25 cups white whole wheat flour, 3 eggs and I put in about 1/3 cup grapeseed oil. I also cut back the nutmeg and cloves a bit as they were for my boys (also left out nuts and raisins for my picky eaters) - if I was making them just for me, I'd have done all the spices and tried it without the oil. They came together beautifully (I made muffins - took 22 min to bake) and each boy has already eaten three (I just took them out of the oven). They are very moist and flavorful. Thanks Nicole for the wonderful recipe!!

Stephanie's Freezer Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
I scaled the recipe back as I only had about 3.5 cups chopped tomatoes, left out the green pepper, sauteed on the stove, extra garlic and extra basil and oregano, used olive oil - I was too impatient and only simmered for an hour, it's delicious! It is sweet, but I like sweet.

Garbanzo Tomato Pasta Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
YUM. Next time I think I'll saute the onions in my sop pot, then add the broth and pasta - Its my fault, I should've cooked my onion a bit longer...I added extra garlic and only sauteed for the last min or so as I like the stronger garlic taste. I also add a bunch of fresh basil at the end and didnt have the whole tomatoes, so used a can of petite diced (threw it in with the liquid) and I used veggie boullion (it is all I had) and ended up using 6 cups to get the consistency I liked. So - yes...I altered a bit, but the base is good and I kept to the ingredients :-) If I had had some spinach, I would've threw some in with the fresh basil. OK - as I'm eating and reading, I see it calls for 3 cans of broth - I thought it was just two, LOL, pays to read the recipe...I was hungry and made it fast! Which is nice, this soup can be made up quickly!

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2010
Good basic zucchini bread. I think it would be better with only 2 cups sugar and maybe some cloves and nutmeg along with the cinnamon. I put 1/2 cup spelt flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour and then 2 cups white flour - you can't tell (shhhhhh) :-) I cooked mine a bit too long - make sure you don't overbake, it makes a big difference, I set the timer for the 40 min and then start checking every 5 min, but I got distracted and probably cooked 2 min. too long, so mine isn't as moist as I'd like it to be.

Potato Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
After reading all the reviews, this is what I did - I used ghee, probably doubled all the spices - I did big heaping tsps and then tasted as it was cooking and added more along with garlic powder (fresh garlic would've been better, but I was lazy) - I did the water and a cup of coconut milk and also added a can of garbonzo beans and instead of peas I used chopped baby spinach. It's really good!! Spicy and comforting - way better than my generic curry powder.

Cinnamon Bread Delight

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
This stuff is wonderful! It tastes like the Amish Friendship bread that I receive every once in a while, but without the work of the starter. Mine doesn't come out pretty, the middle always sinks - but it tastes delicious. I had to use a cup of oil as I didn't have any applesauce, and put in 3 tsps of cinnamon instead of 2, and sprinkled the cinnamon sugar on the bottom of the pans and the top of the loaves. Thanks for the recipe...well, my waistline doesn't thank you...we ate it all in one day its so good!

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: May 30, 2010
This was a hit! I increased everything except the tomato (I didnt have enough) and I just drizzled a tiny bit of olive oil on - not sure why its needed, but I figured I'd add a bit as I love olive oil. I loved it and even got some people that don't like mango to try and they liked it too :-) I just made this again - kind of eyeballed my ingredients and tasted as I went, used white onion and added black beans and corn - I LOVE it!!! Thanks for this recipe - it is among my all time favorite salsas!!

Spinach and Orzo Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2010
I wont rate it as I changed it up - I used 1/4 cup oil instead of 1/2 cup and it seemed like plenty. I also used the juice of one lemon. 2 tsps sugar, 1 tsp salt, 1 clove garlic (minced), 2 tomatoes (chopped), 1 tsp oregano and closer to 1 T basil. I didnt add any cheese or pine nuts and used black pepper instead of white. I really like it - YUM!! I added the pasta warm so the spinach wilted down a little and I think I'd like more spinach in it. Olives would be good and fresh herbs would be better. I love finding recipes like this that are easy to change up to suit your tastes or what you've got in your cupboards/fridge :) I needed a way to use up my spinach and this was perfect! OK - AR is making me rate it....so keep in mind I made it as written above ;-)

Honey Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
These are great! I used pineapple juice, three cups of raisin bran (raisins picked out, haha) and one cup of all bran cereal. I mushed the cereals up and let the batter sit overnight - baked in the morning for 18 min. I also did 1/4 cup of oil and 1/4 cup applesauce. I love the honey taste. Next time I'll sneak in a bit of whole wheat pastry flour or spelt flour :-)
