Delicious Herbed Spinach and Kale Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2014
Funny, just like everybody else has said these are surprisingly good! I was a little skeptical but they're fantastic! Even my 15-month-old daughter likes them! I use almost all Kale (we tend to have great success growing Kale in our garden, too much success!!) and simplify the herb mix, usually just a few like oregano and basil for a more italian taste, this recipe is easily tweaked for your tastes. Delicious!

Butternut Squash and Shiitake Mushroom Wild Rice Risotto

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2013
In a word: AMAZING! I made a few substitutions and had to play the cooking time by ear: used Orzo pasta instead of Arborio rice since I just couldnt find any, and canned mushrooms instead of fresh shitake (which I'm sure means itd be even BETTER with fresh mushrooms!!!), but it still came out absolutely FABULOUS! And the plus side was Orzo takes a much shorter cooking time. The flavor is pretty intense, so maybe better as a side than a main dish? The cheese makes this VERY rich and savory. SO GOOD!

Sweet Potato Oranges

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2013
As stated, I give it 4 stars. I only used 1/2 the amount of recommended sugar, and it was FABULOUS, definitely 5 starts! Oh my goodness, nothing but rave reviews at Christmas dinner. I wound up with lots of leftover potato mix and not enough oranges to fill, so I baked it like sweet potato pie for another potluck party with a candied pecan topping.

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2013
Best. Cheesecake. EVER... even my dad and father-in-law (not a cheesecake fans) loved it. I did follow some other reviewers' advice, added a little extra white chocolate, doubled the amount of crust, and put the cake in a water bath. When the hour of cooking was up, I turned off the oven and let it sit for another hour in the cooling oven. It was perfect! Also, I substituted strawberries for raspberries since it's what I had and wanted to get rid of. Absolutely wonderful!

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Wow, this was really great! I didn't have any celery or celery seed, so I used broccoli and cauliflower instead. I also added garlic (uh, because EVERY recipe should have garlic!!) thyme and parsley to the sauce, just for a little extra fun flavor, and it was excellent! great recipe!

Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
My first time EVER making pie crust, and this came out great! I don't think I rolled it thin enough, I wasn't sure how thin it ought to be, but it was still flaky and delicious, and really quite easy! Thanks!

Slow Cooker Western Omelet

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2012
I did not have frozen hash browns, so I shredded raw potatoes and let them sit in water for about 5 minutes, drained them well and added them to the crock pot. I added just a touch extra milk as other reviewers suggested, and I used sausage instead of ham, just personal preference, and I did not add salt since the meat was already well salted. I cooked on low for 7 hours, it was perfect! Super easy, super tasty breakfast! Very versatile, easy to add different meats and veggies to suit your tastes.

Best Ever Brisket

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2012
YUM! This was fantastic! I forgot to buy beef broth, so I used mushroom soup base, and I cooked this in the slow cooker for 10 hours on low. The amount of liquid in the recipe wasn't enough to cover the brisket in the cooker, so I added 12oz of beer. SO delicious! It's got lots of flavor and just falls apart. I used the juices to make a thin gravy for mashed potatoes and the meat, and served with shredded sauteed brussel sprouts. Great recipe, definitely a keeper!

Angel Food Cake III

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
I wound up having to use a couple substitutions. For cake flour, I used 1 cup of all-purpose minus 2 tbsp, and added 2 tbsp of cornstarch. I also did not have cream of tartar, and read somewhere that an equal amount of lemon would suffice. I don't really believe this made any difference, but the cake tasted amazing anyways! I made the mistake of using a decorated bundt pan, and since you're not supposed to oil the pan we wound up having to eat the cake right out of the pan, but it was pretty close (though not as fluffy/spongey as angel food should be, but I assume this is the fault of my substiutions) and quite delicious!

Beth's Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Pretty Good! As others have mentioned, the cookies themselves are not very orange-y. I add a teaspoon or two of orange extract to pump it up a bit. Rather than ice these cookies I dip them in dark chocolate (also with orange extract). They are SCRUMPTULESCENT! I didnt have any shortening so I used butter instead, otherwise folllowed the recipe.

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
I gave this 4 stars because had I followed the recipe exactly, the sweetness would've been overwhelming! I used only 1/4 cup of sugar and it was perfectly tangy and sweet! I also used orange juice instead of water for a bit more punch, and walnuts rather than pecans simply because that is what I had on hand. But everyone who tried it liked it! It wasn't very appetizing-looking, but I talked a lot of people into it and they really liked it. Great with the Thanksgiving turkey :)

Greek Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
I made 2 minor changes: I only used about 2 tbsp of oil (adding a touch more water), and we didnt bother to skin the chicken. The skin helps hold moisture in and it's easier to peel the skin off during the carving, rather than when it's raw. This was EXCELLENT! The overall flavor was pretty light, but not bland. There was a bit of lemon, but my husband and I thought it was just right. We drizzled a little juice on the chicken before serving, and I'm freezing the leftover juices for soup or rice another day. It's so good! When I got home from work the whole house smelled great and the dog was sitting by the counter just staring at the slow cooker! I felt bad that she had to smell that awesomeness all day, so I gave her a tiny taste and she just went nuts, she loved it! Excellent recipe for the whole family :D

Lighter Banana Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2011
These turned out pretty good! As others said, the texture is a little on the chewy side and stick pretty badly to the paper, but given that they're almost fat free I'd say that's all right! They taste great! I followed others advice and added about 1/4 cup milk and 1/4 cup applesauce, cinnamon and vanilla. Next time I'll add some ground flax for that nutty flavor and fiber. They're dense and hearty and taste great. Good choice for more health-conscious bakers!

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2011
Maybe I just don't like curry that much, but something was definitely missing from this recipe. Something needed to balance out the curry and yogurt flavors, I thought they were too strong. Some sauteed mushrooms might add a butteriness that would enhance it...? I also thought it was too soupy, next time I'd cut out some of the yogurt to reduce the soupiness. It was pretty good with some pita bread to sop up the remaining sauce! That part was real tasty.

Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Excellent base recipe! I followed others' recommendations, used 8 eggs, and pre-cooked the potatoes and onions. I diced the potatoes rather than shredded just because I didn't have my shredder on hand. The first time I made this (for a Friday in Lent) I omitted the sausage and added mushrooms and spinach. I also added a little salt and a bit of pepper. This was so great, my whole family was asking for the recipe! The second time I kept to the original recipe but added leftover spinach. Really really good, thanks!

Sangria Ham

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
We used our slow cooker to create this delicious dish! While the slow cooker is simple and easy, you dont get that sweet crunchy outside coating of glaze. However we took the leftover liquid and boiled it down, added some cornstarch and served as sauce. So good!

Artichoke Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
It was a tad dry for how I like mashed potatoes, so with a touch extra liquid this is a 5-star recipe! Such a simple side dish, and with potential to be far less fatty than mashed potatoes without sacrificing flavor! SO good!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Really good recipe! To be fair, I eye-balled all the spices, but I aimed for what was reccommended and I thought it could use a little something more. I added cilantro and some chipotle sauce and served with sour cream. The bean mix was too watery, so next time I'll use veggie broth and cut it in half. Very filling and really tasty, nice to do something a little different!

Award Winning Peaches and Cream Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
Five stars for flavor, four for directions. I had some trouble with this recipe, my "crust" was like cake batter and never fully cooked, even though I cooked it for 15 minutes before assembling the peaches and cream. It tasted absolutely wonderful anyways! I'll have to read more reviews on how others dealt with this.

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2011
WOW these were SO good! Now, I attempted to make a bread loaf out of this instead of muffins, it did not work out real great. I baked it at 350 degrees for almost an hour and a half and the center top was still undercooked, but the part that was cooked is phenomenal! WOW! I did add a tiny squirt of lemon juice and a teaspoon or two of vanilla. So good! Since it was a loaf I only needed 1/2 of the crumb topping. SO good, definitely will make again!
