Sweet Potato Gnocchi

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2012
Two tips to make this a 30-minute meal instead of 2-3 hours as one reviewer said. 1. Use precooked sweet potato or butternut squash (in the frozen section of your supermarket). 2. Make the dough a squeezable rather than rollable consistency and put it in a pastry bag or ziploc bag (as another reviewer suggested). Squeeze the dough a little at a time and cut with kitchen shears right into your pot of boiling water. You'll have to pause and scoop out the floaters as they finish cooking, but this method is much faster than hand rolling the dumplings. And, in my opinion, the amount of flour you have to use to make the gnocchi rolling consistency completely ruins the texture and flavor of the gnocchi. Mine came out tender and delicate not gummy and doughy.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
Unpleasant texture. Not the recipe's fault, though. I find quinoa to be mushy.

Baked Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2012
This was inedible. It didn't even make decent chicken salad. Had to dump out an entire organic chicken. The people who seemed to like this recipe all made substantial modifications. As written, this recipe is terrible.

Stuffed Cabbage Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
Very tasty and easy to make. It could have used a little more salt in the meat mixture.

Slow-Cooked German Short Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2012
Fantastic recipe! The only modification I made was to use 3 tablespoons of Sriracha in place of chile sauce because I didn't have it. It gave the ribs a nice kick. I served it with an acorn and butternut squash mash. The sweetness of the squash was a perfect compliment to the heat of the ribs.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2011
I was hoping this would be a good vegetarian entree, but it really couldn't carry a meal on its own. It probably would be nice as a side dish.

Asparagus Quiche

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
This is an excellent quiche! I used prosciutto instead of bacon and cheddar instead of swiss. The cooking time is spot on. The nutmeg is a great touch. Loved it. Will make again.

Ravioli Soup

This is a really easy, fast, tasty recipe. Use any combination of filled pasta and veggies that you have on hand. You can't screw this up.

Almond-Crusted Halibut Crystal Symphony

The sauce is perfect--delicate enough for the fish but full of flavor.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
These are really the best chocolate chips. The key is in the melted butter and also in not over cooking them.

Cabbage Rolls I

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2008
This recipe was terrible! I should have listened to my instinct and browned the ground beef before assembling the cabbage rolls. After more than 50 minutes of cooking, the filling was a pinkish, pile of mush--inedible. I threw all of the rolls into the garbage.

Steve's Chicken Korma

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
Fantastic! I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe--the flavor is amazingly complex for such a quick and easy dish. It tastes like something you would spend hours making.
