Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2006
Excellent recipe! This was fast and easy. I only had 15-oz cans of tomato sauce (and I hate wasting things), so I almost-doubled the recipe. I also didn't have enough chili powder, so I used a blend of that, ground Chile pepper, and ground cayenne pepper. I also added a couple dashes of red pepper flakes, 3/4 tsp. dried cilantro, and fresh lime juice.

Honey Lemon Tea

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2006
I get sore throats a lot during the winter, and this recipe provides a nice change from the regular tea I usually make. I love this tea. I omit the sugar and put in equal amounts of lemon and honey (about 1 to 1-1/2 t. each).

Microwave Baked Apples

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
This recipe was pretty good. I'm cooking in my dorm room, and the ovens are permanently broken, so my cooking options are somewhat limited. I ended up using this as just a base recipe, since I didn't have all the ingredients. I used a Galla apple and filled it with some honey, pumpkin pie spice, and a tiny pinch of cardamom. I forgot to add dried cranberries, but I'll definitely remember next time. I cooked it for three and a half minutes, and this was a bit too long, but it was still good. Next time I'll try two and a half, I think. Thank you for this recipe!

Blueberry Breakfast Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
Excellent recipe. I don't much care for pancake syrup (and maple syrup is so expensive), so this is a wonderful alternative for me! I mainly use this for pancakes and waffles, but it would also be really good over ice cream or cheesecake. I've made this with fresh blueberries and frozen, and both work well. I've also made this with sliced peaches, cherries, strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries with excellent results. It also freezes and reheats well.

Black Bean, Sausage, and Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
This is a very good soup. I have made this several times, and it never fails to please. I always add random vegetables from the fridge/freezer, such as corn, beans, and carrots. I always cut up the sweet potatoes (without peeling) and dump them in the soup to cook. The Italian sausage is easier to cut into pieces if partially frozen.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2009
I have made this recipe many, many times, and it's always delicious. I usually add random vegetables I happen to have on hand, and it's always good. I sometimes use vegetable stock for more flavor. The spinach and vinegar (usually red wine vinegar) really complete this dish. I usually serve it with homemade pita chips on the side. Delicious.

French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I doubled the recipe (lots of stale bread) and put it in a 9 x 13" pan and then put it in the fridge to soak overnight. The next day I it baked for an hour for breakfast-for-dinner. Other than that, the only thing I changed was to add some nutmeg. It was very good, and several friends said it was "amazing." The only thing I'd do differently would be to stir around the bread a bit maybe about a half hour or so before cooking (the top pieces were a tiny bit dry), and I may add a few more spices. Thank you!

Condensed Milk Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2009
This frosting was very good! It tasted like fudge brownies. I used cocoa powder instead of the chocolate, and it turned out great. I used the conversions on the cocoa box. This turned out very thick, so I did have to add the water. Thank you for the recipe!

Oatmeal and Applesauce Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
These were really good. Everyone loved them. I did add about a 1/2 cup extra oatmeal and extra baking soda and powder. I also used whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose. I let the batter sit in the fridge for about half an hour and then thinned out the batter with a bit more milk, but it was still thick. This only about 9 pancakes, but they were so filling that you only need to eat two.

Honey Of An Oatmeal Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
This was a wonderful bread. I used apple sauce instead of oil, and I split the flour between bread flour and white whole wheat flour. I also added a couple teaspoons of gluten, and had a bit of a free hand with the honey. This was a very good, soft bread with a nice crust.

Emily's Famous Popcorn

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
This was delicious! I made it for hockey night mainly for myself because I didn't think my parents or brother would want any, but I ended up having to make a second batch because they liked it so much. I used an air popper in the microwave, and I just drizzled the popcorn with some olive oil afterwards for some flavor to make the spices stick better. I used the spices in the recipes and some other random ones I had on hand, like paprika, smokey salt, and Italian herbs. Thanks a lot!

Sweet Candied Orange and Lemon Peel

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
I made these for my family for Christmas and gave some away as Christmas gifts. Everyone loved them. My family always gets a crate of oranges and grapefruits from my grandparents in Florida every Christmas, so this recipe was perfect. I wasn't sure how the grapefruit would turn out, since I don't like them, but I ended up liking both. I think I blanched them two or three times, which seemed to be perfect. I kept the syrup afterwards and have it to sweeten drinks and oatmeal. Thanks a lot!

Frozen Strawberry Yogurt

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2010
This was really good! I followed the directions, more or less. I didn't have sweetened condensed milk, so I used fat free evaporated milk heated with 2/3 c sugar and 1/3 c Splenda. I also replaced some of the strawberries with one banana, which was the perfect amount of banana. I also forgot to add the milk, but I think it's fine without. I also added about 2 T peach schnapps to prevent it from getting icy after putting it in the freezer, which has helped (you're supposed to use 1 T vodka, but I didn't have that, either). I also added 1-2 T ground flax seeds, for the nutrition. In the future, I think I'd add maybe a cup more strawberries, but other than that, it's perfect. Thank you!

Chocolate Frozen Yogurt

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
This frozen yogurt was amazing! I made it a few weeks ago when my bf was over, and everyone loved it. It was gone within a day. The only thing I did differently was to substitute a few tablespoons of cocoa powder and sugar for the chocolate chips. I can't remember how much I used. I think I just kept adding and tasting until I liked it. The plain yogurt added a mild tang to the chocolate that I really liked, and it had a very good consistency.

Rice and Raisin Breakfast Pudding

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2010
This was really good. I couldn't even tell it was brown rice. I did a couple things differently based on what I had on hand (pecans instead of almonds, pumpkin pie spice instead of the cinnamon and cardamom), but nothing that really changed the recipe.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
These were delicious! I substituted half the flour with whole wheat flour, upped the baking powder to 4 tsp, and sifted twice. They turned out very fluffy. Next time I'll ty making them with all whole wheat flour. I made plain ones, blueberry ones, and chocolate chip ones. They were all very good.

Tater Crisp Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2010
This was good. My bf and I liked it a lot. I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and instant mashed potatoes (because I thought they'd be flakes, but the were pellets, so I put them in the food processor until fine) and added some random spices from the spice cabinet. I also used an egg instead of the butter. I loved the way they turned out. The tops were crispy and the bottoms had a layer of mashed potatoes. Mmm... Very good.

Roasted Winter Squash Seeds

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
I made these last fall and apparently forgot to review them. These were really good. They were an excellent snack, and they were gone within a day. I'm making them again tonight or tomorrow.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
These were very good! Perfect for pumpkin season (and any other season)! I added pecans to some while they were cooking, and those were perfect. These pancakes make me want to make the pecan jam on this website to pour on top. Next time I think I'll add a tablespoon or two more pumpkin and an equal amount more milk because the batter was very thick (though this was because I used 1 1/4 c whole wheat flour and 3/4 c white flour). I would also add more spices. I used 1 1/2 t pumpkin pie spice, but next time I'll probably add at least another teaspoon of that and maybe grate in some fresh nutmeg.

Roasted Garlic Flat Iron Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
These were really good. I cut the recipe in half for two 8-oz steaks. I did end up adding a couple more cloves of garlic, though, from other reviews saying that there's not a lot of garlic flavor. I think next time I'll make the garlic paste ahead of time and marinate the steak in it for a few hours and add a couple of raw cloves along with the roasted ones. Next time I might try grilling it, too.
