Rosemary Turkey Meatloaf

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2006
For my first turkey meatloaf, I used this recipe. It was good, but I made a couple of changes: no sugar, in fact, I left out the glaze - for my tastes, I don't need it, but Oops, I forgot the garlic (might have added a little zing, oh well, next time) I also used dried rosemary leaves (about 1 Tbsp), used only 1/2 Cup of milk, I used chopped scallions for the onions and added chopped celery. The result was a tasty loaf. Last night's turkey meatloaf was served with steamed green beans and broccoli and onion tater tots, I think I'll try to serve this meal every year on the Tuesday after Labor Day.

Maple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2006
After making this I'm not going to use the recipe in my "New York Times" cookbook anymore. The banana bread recipe I was using was more labor intensive (grated orange zest) and it never turned out as good as this one. I used vanilla extract, too. I used a little less baking soda. I got great results, a moist, sweet banana-maple flavor with walnuts, I just made this first thing this morning and fresh from the oven, served warm with coffee -- it was fantastic. Thanks!

Neat Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2006
I added a lot more ketchup and cut back on the brown sugar, I also added a bit more Worcestershire sauce. This was a fun, nostalgic dinner for 2 adults, I know neither of us had had a sloppy joe in ages, but we like things to be more savory than sweet so we were pleased with the results, it still tasted like a sloppy joe but not wasn't so runny or sweet. Served with onion tater tots, green salad, it's great for a weeknight.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
This pesto is great, I used a little more basil, about 1 1/2 cups so I also added a little extra garlic, pine nuts and parmesan. I served it with a packaged gorgonzola gnocchi, but to make it a heartier meal I added sliced chicken/mushroom/asiago sausage and zucchini that I sauteed in olive oil and then when it was all mixed together I topped it with fresh tomatoes. It was a great easy dinner and the fresh pesto made all the difference.

Fried Zucchini

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
I think this is one of those recipes where you need the proper cooking gear to make it turn out right. It was OK, but I bet it would have been better had it been cooked in a deep-fryer. I fried it on the stove and had the same problem as others, the batter not sticking as well. I just don't think the oil was hot enough.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
I added the salt to the flour before I realized that it was supposed to go in with the hot water/baking soda, but nonetheless, these cookies are really fantastic. I also used leftover Christmas chocolates - I had some dark chocolate Droste pastilles 70% cocoa that were not very sweet and some milk chocolate coins from See's Candies -- I find milk chocolate to be very sweet and it's not my first choice, but the pastilles were not sweet enough, so combining them was an experiment that luckily turned out to taste very good. So, in all I had about 8 oz. chocolate candy. I refrigerated it, then broke it into "chips" - easy since both candies were round and basically flat, and the result is that these cookies taste very similar to cookies that use semisweet chocolate morsels, and I feel like the candy went to good use, as opposed to just being thrown out. I also ended up baking them for about 20 minutes, I guess it's my oven. Anyway, they're very good and I'll definitely be using this recipe again.

Simple Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2007
I also ended up baking for a bit longer -- 30 minutes or so, because I realized when forming the patties that I didn't really use enough bread crumbs with the very moist organic grass-fed beef I was using, and the patties didn't hold their shape too well. They still tasted delicious, and I served them with egg noodles.

Shrimp Scampi IV

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2008
I served this with a green salad and it made a very quick and easy weeknight dinner. Broiling makes a difference - in the past I'd sauteed scampi on the stove too and this tasted more flavorful. I added about a tablespoon of lemon juice and served it over buttered angel hair pasta with some fresh parsley and freshly ground black pepper, so the end result was everything tasting very buttery (next time I probably won't add butter to the pasta), still it was very good. Not only does it taste great, it looks and smells great too! I will definitely make this again.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I won't bother trying any more pumpkin muffin recipes now that I've found this one! Using light brown sugar, applesauce and mini semi-sweet chocolate chips were great suggestions, they smell great, taste great and are not too sweet. This was also fun for my toddler to help out with. I'll be making at least three batches (doubling the recipe, too) of these to share at various get-togethers over the next month. Thanks for a great fall baked treat!

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2011
These are pretty good, I wish they had a bit more pumpkin flavor, however, I used some leftover canned creamy vanilla frosting and maybe it overshadows the pumpkin flavor in a way that the glaze in the recipe wouldn't. I'll make them again just drizzling the glaze over them instead.
