Slow Cooker BBQ Flat Iron Steak Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
This was very good. I did add a bit more molasses and a squirt of honey (my bf and I like our barbeque a little more on the sweet side), and I seasoned the beef with some spices. I also didn't have time to put it on high and then low, so I just kept it on low for about 6 hours, and it still turned out great. The only thing I would do differently next time would maybe be to add a tablespoon or so of cornstarch to thicken up the sauce a bit.

Amazingly Easy Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
This bread was delicious! I doubled the recipe to make two loaves, and they came out perfectly. The only changes I made was to use 3 c whole wheat flour, a little less sugar, and butter instead of margarine. I brushed the loaves with the butter/buttermilk mixture a few times while it was baking, and it made the crust perfect. I had to add about 5 min of baking time, but other than that the recipe was perfect.

One-Egg Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2011
This was great! The sesame oil really made it for me. Mmm. I used chicken stock instead of broth (it was what was on hand) and chives instead of green onion (also what was on hand). I also added an extra egg because I'm recovering from an operation and need extra protein. Excellent recipe! I'll definitely be eating the leftovers today.

Lemon Poppy Seed Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
This was very good! I made two loaves instead of three (and added 5 min of baking time), and one loaf was gone in only a few hours! I followed some of the others' suggestions by squeezing some lemon juice and adding enough milk to it to make 1 1/2 c. I still added some lemon extract (a little less than 1 t because I ran out). I also added more poppy seeds and reduced the sugar to 2 c. Delicious! I will definitely make it again!

Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
This was my first time making corned beef on my own, and it was really good. The only thing I did different was to use sliced bok choy instead of cabbage (I had it leftover from another dish, and it's in the cabbage family). The leftovers are delicious, too. I love making corned beef, potato, carrot, and "cabbage" sandwiches with some horseradish mustard. Mmm...

Chocolate Banana Bread

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I made this bread yesterday afternoon, and I love it! I followed the recipe pretty much exactly. Aside from scaling it down to make only one loaf, the only things I did differently were to replace 1/3 of the flour with whole wheat, use mini chocolate chips (I prefer them in breads), and to replace the sour cream with strawberry flavored kefir. I did the last because I thought I had sour cream but realized too late that I didn't. Oops. I used 1/2 c of the kefir, and it turned out fine. I just had to bake it for an extra 10 min because of the extra moisture. I also found that heating slices in the microwave for 15-20 sec helps bring out some of the banana flavor, for those who were complaining that the chocolate covered it up.

Tasty Buckwheat Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I made these for some friends and family staying over a while ago, and they were really good. I love buckwheat. I think I used canola oil and old fashioned oats put through a food procesor, but other than that I followed the recipe.

Double Layer Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I made this last November for Thanksgiving, and it was really, really good. I think I accidentally added either too much whipped topping or too much cream cheese, but it still turned out really good. I will definitely be making this again next year. Besides that mistake, the only thing I did differently was making my own graham cracker crust because it's so easy (you just melt some butter, mix it with graham cracker crumbs, and bake for a few minutes), and I find that most of the premade crusts taste like cardboard.

Premium Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011
I made this for my parents with half white whole wheat flour and using the sponge method, and it was a real hit. The dough had a really good texture and browned really well. Definitely worth the wait.

Marinated Pork Strips

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2011

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
I made these the other day for some friends, and it was a hit. I did make a few changes to suit my needs. I didn't have brown sugar, so I just used white sugar and extra molasses (essentially the same thing). I also substituted 1/4 c barbeque sauce for half of the ketchup (I always put barbeque sauce in baked beans). I also only used 2 thick slices of bacon instead of the 1/2 lb, since my friends and I are watching our weight. I did end up keeping it in the oven longer than I should have, so I added a bit more of the bean-cooking water with 1 T cornstarch. I will definitely make this again. Mmm...

Movie Star Popcorn

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
Very good and easy. I think next time I'll use coconut oil, though, because it has a milder flavor.

Kettle Corn

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2011
This was very good and very easy. I did have a thin layer of "extra cripsy" ones, but that was my own fault because I kept it on the heat a bit too long. I sprinkled the bowl with a little bit of salt after they were done, and that made them perfect.

Pita Chips

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2011
I found this recipe a few years ago and just realized I never reviewed it. I love this recipe because it's so easy. I like my pita chips a bit crispier, so I leave them in a few minutes longer. I serve these with lentil or black bean soup or homemade hummus, and they never last more than a few days. I like that I can mix it up with different herbs pretty easily. I've used all sorts of herb mixes on these, and they're always good.

Mom's Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
This was pretty good. I added the extra can of cheese soup (I used cheddar cheese soup and broccoli cheese soup), the extra milk, and some spices (a few dashes each of pepper, paprika, garlic and onion powder, and chili powder).

Whole Wheat Drop Biscuits

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2011
These were pretty good, though I will agree with the others that they are a bit bland. I think next time, insead of using canola oil, I'll use butter. I also added a few Tbs more milk (skim cow milk), and a couple teaspoons of honey. I also had to bake them a lot longer than it said, but that was my fault for making them much too big.

Whole Wheat Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
This was excellent! I made it in my KitchenAid mixer according to the first review (the poster of the recipe), and it turned out great! I did have to add a few extra tablespoons of water to make the dough form, but that's not unusual for bread-like dough. My uncle who makes homemade ravioli every year says that it's crucial to let the dough sit for at least an hour before rolling, ideally overnight. I would also say that, depending on how thick your noodles are, the recipe makes 4 very generous servings. I was worried I wouldn't have enough for 5 people, so I doubled it, and that is too much (though now I have lots of yummy leftovers, so no real loss). I will definitely make this again.

Baklava

Reviewed: Dec. 24, 2010
I've made this recipe every Christmas for the the few years, and it's always been a hit. I thought I had already reviewed it, but I guess not. I make it pretty much as the recipe calls, except I make 1.5x the sauce, and I cut the baklava within 1/4" of the bottom before baking (to keep the sauce from pooling on the bottom and making it soggy). I also added about 1/4 t ground cloves to the nuts this year, along with the cinnamon. It also helps if you only cut within 1/4" of the edge, too. It keeps the phyllo from sliding around too much. Another trick to cutting it is to use a very sharp knife and short, slow sawing motions. To keep the baklava from getting soggy, it is crucial to pour room temperature sauce on hot baklava, right out of the oven. That will allow the baklava to absorb the sauce while staying crispy on top.

Baked Cornish Game Hens

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Delicious! I made these this afternoon. An hour and a half was the perfect cooking time. I did mess around with some of the ingredients to use what I had on hand (I needed to clean out the fridge). I substituted carrots for the bell pepper, Trader Joe's pesto sauce for some of the butter, and I rubbed some more pesto under the skin. I also sweated the vegetables in some oil before stuffing to soften the carrots a bit.

Oatmeal Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
These were very good! I was looking for a whole grain base recipe to make yogurt pancakes, so I substituted yogurt for the buttermilk. I also added a bit of brown sugar instead of white and let the mixture sit for 10 min or so before cooking to let the baking soda react with the yogurt. Thanks!
