Garlic Anchovy Linguine

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2011
First time I ever cook anything with anchovies in it. I was pleasently surprised by the simplicity of the recipe and the flavors in it. Very good. Not bland at all. The saltiness of the anchovies it's all this dish needs. I only used 4oz (instead of 6oz) because I was afraid of overpowering the dish with the anchovies flavor but that wasn't the case. I think 6oz would be just fine as well. Will make again.

Milly's Oatmeal Brownies

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2011
So good it makes you want to say it with your mouth full! I halved the recipe, used an 8X8 pan, added some pecans and some milk chocolate chips. I didn't over do it though because I really wanted to taste the oatmeal in them, which I love. I predict my husband and I will *magically* make them dissapear in the next two hours. Thanks Milly!

INCREDIBLE Raspberry Cheesecake Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2011
I bought the raspberry chips/tidbits online from The Prepared Pantry. This is not much of a recipe since all you are doing is replacing butter for cream cheese to an already made cookie mix. The artificial flavors really come through and they aren't even half as good as Subway's BUT, they will do in the meantime until I can come up with a recipe for the real thing. The texture is really cake-like, not really a cookie.

California Crescent Sandwiches

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
We all really enjoyed the combination of ingredients and the texture and flavor of the "bread". It also had a nice presentation. We didn't miss the cheese (that we always put in sandwiches) but I did add tomatoes because I had some I needed to use up. My husband asked me to make sandwiches with this "bread" again but for breakfast, like a bacon egg and cheese type of thing. This was a good variation from the norm.

Coconut Cheese Flan (Flan de Coco y Queso)

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2011
PERFECT! I loved it. I always make the caramel in the microwave (not the ideal way, but it works). 1 cup sugar + 1/2 cup water in a pyrex. 15 minutes later (microwaves are all different though) I've got the perfect colored amber caramel. I bought just one 8oz block of cream cheese because I didn't pay attention, so I used that and it was still great. I loved the flavor, the texture, the consistency, the ease to make...everything. I only had an 8 X 3 pan, so it ended up taller (thicker) and therefore I had to bake about 30 min longer. No biggie. Thank you for yet another delicious recipe, Milly!

Out of this World Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
I wasn't very succesful at cutting out shapes so I got frustrated and basically diced everything. I used regular broccoli because I couldn't find romanesco. After tasting the salad, I decided to throw in some minced red onion because I really like the touch it adds to salads of any kind. I liked the crunch of the vegetables and the colorful presentation.

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
Great consistency. I only used 1 teaspoon of cinnamon though. We liked these pancakes a lot.

Mongolian Beef and Spring Onions

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
I used light brown sugar (the full amount) and top round instead of flank steak. I had a bit more than a pound of meat (1.3) but the amount of sauce was still good. We loved the dish. It tastes authentic and it was easy to prepare. I served it over brown rice and topped with some fried rice noodles.

Spinach Brownies

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
I decided to cut down on the butter by half (1/4 cup) as suggested by many, and I sauteed the onion on a bit of olive oil and added the spinach to the onions once they were traslucent. I cooked them in the skillet until they wilted and proceeded with the recipe. Because I only had 4 oz of mozarella in the house, I completed the cheese amount with some shredded gouda but I think feta would work well or any other cheese combination for that matter. We enjoyed the taste but a tad more salt (or a saltier cheese) and some more spinach would have made it even better.

Minted Carrots

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2011
These carrots are delicious. I usually make candied carrots with maple syrup but decided to give this one a try and it was very good. I had leftover mint from some mojitos I made, so I used that instead of the dry kind, chooped finely.

Chocolate Turtle Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2011
I just had a slice of this cheesecake and I feel like I need a bag of Doritos now in my system. It's so rich and sweet that I don't see myself getting another slice, not even tomorrow. I even reduced the amount of caramels and it is just way too much. Super easy to make and very pretty to look at but sickenly sweet. I used a waterbath as I do with all my cheesecakes, flans, and custards. Seriously, I am searching the house for something salty to have ASAP. I'm going on a coma!!

Shrimp Pizza

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
I do not think this pizza is light. I didn't even used the entire amount of cream cheese mixture and found it quite heavy. It has a good flavor but in my opinion, the garlic needs to be roasted first. It was way too strong. Also, I would prefer the mixture to be heated up rather than just eaten cold with the hot onions, peppers and shrimp on top. Overall, a decent and different pizza but not perfect as written.

Toasted Caprese Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
Yummy!! I didn't change anything at all. It was perfect. I love caprese salad but I wondered if the roasted garlic would be an issue. Well, it wasn't. The garlic MAKES this sandwich! I did add the balsamic as well. Will make again (and again, and again...)

Strawberry-Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
Very delicious and refreshing. I loved adding honey instead of sugar. If your berries are very sweet you might not need to add the honey. Instead of adding ice, I made sure my berries were frozen. You can substitute flax seeds for the wheat germ as well. YUMMY!!

Angie's Polenta Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
I prefer the taste of beef but for health reasons, I use lean ground turkey for all dishes that require ground beef. It's delicious, regardless. I used Classico brand four cheese pasta sauce, which I love when I can't make my own. However, I could not find cottage cheese with chives ANYWHERE! I looked, looked, looked... So, I had some ricotta in the refrigerator and just went ahead and used that. I also sprinkled some parmesan on top. I had some spinach occupying space in my refrigerator so I threw that in there too. Yes, I changed it up a bit but like the author said, this recipe "can be a start for so many variations". That's definitely true. Make it your own. It is a great base recipe and I loved the change of pace when it comes to texture on an italian dish. I pour some sauce in the middle of a serving plate and placed the polenta on top, made it look pretty and served it with a side dish of steamed broccoli. Yum Yum!

Slow Cooker Stout Stew

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I had no clue what stout beer tasted like. It is kind of strong and slightly bitter. The stew has a bit of a bitter after taste to it and my husband noticed right away. He wasn't too crazy about it. He gives it a 4. However, the stew is good, hearthy, and very easy to make. I served it over brown rice.

Greek Couscous

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2011
This dish was great. I have made something similar before with orzo instead of couscous but couscous is outstanding and looks very pretty on the plate. I did use whole wheat couscous, and because it is dark the other ingredients didn't stand out as much. Regardless, it was pretty to look at and delicious. I also used all chicken broth (3/4 cup) , no water. As is, this is a very light lunch but if you cook some chicken breasts strips on the side seasoned with salt and pepper you can make this a more filling dinner entree. I say "salt and pepper" because the flavors in this couscous are complex enough and a heavy seasoned chicken might be a bit too much. Of course, it depends on your own personal taste and that of your family. Opa!!
