Mushroom Orzo

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2014
Butter overload- next time, I'd use a little less.

Quick and Easy Tuna Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
followed the basic recipe with a few tweaks and came out with a good little meal. I was surprised how well the processed cheese slices melted over the noodles. too bad i just discovered my roommate hates the smell of canned tuna. she is running around the apartment screaming. perhaps i will refrain from making anything-tuna for a little while.

Peanut Noodles

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
It was good. I put in too much peanut butter (whoops). Save some of the green parts of the scallions to garnish the top with. Looks pretty and tastes good!

Tex-Mex Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2010
Very disappointing. I was surprised because everyone else loved it. Not for me.

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
I cooked the beejezus out of this soup (probably 18 hours in a slowcooker after beans soaking for 12) to get it nice and thick, but oh man it was worth it. Also, pureed half in a blender about 12 hours in. My parents found it too spicy- i blame the jalapeno juices. Boyfriend and I inhaled it. What a simple, spicy delight. Will definitely make again, despite long cook time. It just sits in a crockpot while I go about my day and eventually I have awesome soup!

Winter Root Vegetables

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
Good but not outstanding. If I make again, I'll add more horseradish and maybe some lemon juice. Subbed a rutabaga for the taters. Overall, a simple and decent recipe for root veggies.

Asian Spicy Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2010
Not particularly asian. And kinda bitter. I think its the fresh ginger and curry. I didn't have any mayo or chiles so my review of this recipe probably isn't very valid. That said, I don't think those items would've made too much difference. I used cilantro and horseradish cream instead (yum, right?) and wasn't too thrilled. Its okay though- I ripped up a bunch of lettuce and stuck a scoop of this tuna madness on top. With a little bit of italian dressing and parm cheese, it was a good little meal.

Never Enough Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2009
made for thanksgiving- was pretty good, but I'm not the biggest fan of velveeta and i could detect its gooeyness in the sauce. I'll prob go back to my traditional recipe next time, but it was fun from something different!

Hearty Meatball Soup II

Reviewed: May 12, 2009
This recipe was a plesant suprise: I followed the recipe fairly strictly, only using slightly different veggies (just what I had in my freezer and cupboard). The meat I used was ground sirloin because that's what I had. And I put a little italian seasoning in the balls. I sent some to my mom to put in dad's lunch, and she called and asked for the recipe. Boyfriend and I liked it too.

Slow Cooker Reuben Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
Delicious, but like other users noticed, the dip thickens and needs stirred frequently. I added more dressing once to thin it out but gave up eventually. Otherwise, I loved it, and so did my guests.

Beer Dip I

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
More ranch-y than beer-y. Guests still emptied the bowl.

Avgolemono

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2007
Simple and delicious. It would be perfect for a sick day. Broth is thinner than restaurant version I am used to.
