Spinach Turkey Roll

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
Hubs decided to top with A-1 steak sauce before I got to the spaghetti sauce, and I added some Montreal Steak Seasoning to the mix. I also added about 1/2 as much more bread crumbs just because my ground turkey was rather wet. I don't have mozzarella so subbed with cheddar. Pretty good--my hubs only complaint was the spinach in the middle--I guess he isn't a fan of that in meatloaf, but otherwise it was a good meal with rice and peas. thanks for the recipe!

Saffron Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
Yum! I didn't use whole cardamom or cinnamon, so I used ground, but it was still lovely. I also made this entirely in the rice cooker, including the sauteeing of the onions and other ingredients; it really was pretty easy. Absolutely delicious! Even hubs enjoyed, and I thought he'd be grumpy about the cloves in the dish, but he wasn't. We do love us some saffron rice. Thanks for the recipe!

Healthier Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2013
Very nice. I used already baked potatoes, since in my experience that is always what takes forever, left out the onion, and added in Montreal Steak Seasoning. This is a delicious au gratin and I'm not entirely certain it's healthy even with the modifications, but it's okay to indulge every once in a while. We enjoyed this one, and I used skim milk since that's all we buy. Thanks for the recipe!

Puttanesca Blanca Linguine

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
Pretty good. I prefer my puttanesca with tomatoes, but I guess that's what makes this blanca? The fish sauce made for good flavor, but I'm not a fan of the chile paste. Too spicy for me and didn't allow the flavors of the olives and capers to pop as much as I like. Maybe it's the brand I used, though; I don't think we have the brand in our area that the recipe submitter mentioned. At any rate, it was fun to try this dish--it's a take on puttanesca I haven't tried before. I don't think I'll make it again since I adore traditional puttanesca but it's a very nice recipe--thanks for sharing!

Cranberry Orange Bread (For Bread Machine)

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2013
Very nice. For once, I followed the directions to bake in the bread machine and it made for a lovely loaf. However, I'll probably try this in the oven next time--I just prefer oven baked bread. Still, this rose perfectly and baked very well in the bread machine, so it's a great bread for a bread machine. I did modify it slightly and used 1/2 orange juice in place of the water. Delish! Also, a note for anyone using their bread machine for the first or second time . . .if you have a fruit/nut beep, wait to add the craisins until you hear the beep. It works well that way. Thanks for the recipe!

Simple Mint Chocolate Chip Strawberry Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2013
Pretty good. I tried this recipe with fresh chopped mint bc I had to cut back my mint. It's good, but it needs more mint in my opinion--I'd double the amount next time. Hubs also said he didn't really like the strawberries in it, so I'd leave those out next time. I also think it needs a bit of vanilla to perk it up, but it's a great starting point, and a perfect amount for a KA mixer, so no need to cut it down. Thanks for the recipe!

Apple Streusel Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
This is a delicious bread. A lot of ingredients, so it sunk and it is incredibly heavy, but that's to be expected. It also definitely needs to be refrigerated overnight if you are letting it sit out during the day--it's so moist, I'm convinced it will mold. Definitely not a diet tea bread, but delicious and moist. Thanks for the recipe!

Homemade Baking Mix

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
Perfect as a substitute when I needed baking mix. I love subs like this, as I'm often without them but I bake and cook constantly. And, I hate waiting until I can go to the store to find ingredients. This worked wonderfully, and now I have extra for other recipes that call for baking mix. Thanks for the recipe!

Bread Machine Honey-Oat-Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
I loved the flavor of this bread, but . . .it was incredibly crumbly. As in, it was difficult to eat as toast, spread things on it, or eat as sandwiches. A tad disappointing, as the flavor was awesome, but it just didn't quite work for me. I may try this again later with different flour to see if that is the culprit. As others noted, this makes two loaves, not one, of bread, so keep that in mind. Thanks for the recipe@

Chicken Salad Fit for a Dragon

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
I liked this a lot--it's a spicy take on a chicken salad, and I liked the addition of the pine nuts. Didn't have celery, so I used yellow bell pepper for crunch. Even though I liked this, after tasting it, I felt it lacked something, so I added dried cranberries. That made it spicy, sweet, and savory all at once and kicked it up to where I wanted it. That's a personal preference, though--as a recipe, this is a neat take on chicken salad sandwiches. Thanks for the recipe!

Lahmacun Turkish Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
Very good, although I have made something very similar before and I think I preferred that recipe. It is a bit time consuming, but I'm sure it could be easily cut down in steps if you aren't worried about authenticity--for instance, it would be pretty simple to sub purchased pita bread for the bread and other sauces could be used. The dough is somewhat dry, so it could probably stand an extra tablespoon or so of water, but it was definitely workable as is. I wasn't really a fan of eating this as a sandwich--at least as a fresh made pizza, it's rather difficult to fold it up. I think I prefer it as a personal pizza and I think I'd prefer to leave off the cabbage, but I'm not a cabbage fan. Otherwise, this is pretty good. I love mint with meat and tomato sauces. Hubs wasn't as convinced but he was okay with it. I don't actually think this is a light meal--I'm stuffed after eating one for lunch. Thanks for the recipe!

Babi's Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
I didn't have carrots so left it out, but this salad probably needs it. I love fresh mint and thought this would jack up the flavor, but it was surprisingly not minty at all. I also couldn't taste the parsley. It was a tad citrus-y and a bit sweet, but overall rather bland. Hubs didn't like it at all. I thought it was okay but I think I'd need different beans and maybe a bit of a different flavor in the dressing to try it again. Thanks for the recipe!

Homemade Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2013
Very easy and decent mint chocolate chip ice cream. I used fresh mint as we have loads of it right now, and chopped chocolate from a chocolate bar. Hubs had two servings of this. I liked it as well. We were initially skeptical that this would all fit into our KA ice cream bowl, but it fit just fine and harden up to a nice ice cream. We did not add the chocolate until about 3/4 way through the freezing process. Thanks for the recipe!

Quick and Simple Broccoli and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Easy, and yes, simple and quick. I'm not a fan of cooking in the microwave--nothing against this recipe, as I know it's a great way to cook certain things--I just dislike it. So I did everything except steam the broccoli in the microwave. I melted some butter, tossed it with cheese, broccoli, salt and pepper, then baked covered at 350 for 30 minutes, and it turned out perfectly. It isn't much, true, but that's what I was looking for. I didn't want to use Velveeta since I didn't have any, and I don't have sour cream or anything else to use either. This worked well and we had it for lunch with some baked ziti. Thanks for the recipe!

Sweet and Tangy Broccoli Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
I've never actually made broccoli salad. I might have tried it at potlucks before, but I'm not entirely certain about that. This isn't too bad, but neither hubs nor I are sure about it. It's maybe just not too our tastes. I think it's a bit too sweet, and I'm not so certain about the mayo mix at the bottom of the bowl. Hubs doesn't really like raw broccoli--something I forgot, so he might like this with cooked broccoli, as that was his only complaint. I'm not sure I will, but I'm glad I gave it a shot--it's always worth trying something new, even if it's not quite to our tastes. I don't have raisins so used craisins and we aren't a fan of raw onions, so I subbed a bell pepper. All in all, it's not a bad salad it's just not quite our thing. Thanks for the recipe!

Softest Soft Bread with Air Pockets Using Bread Machine

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
I make loads of bread in my bread machine--usually I make the dough then pop it in the oven, and I rarely get a loaf of bread that doesn't work out that way. I've made bread we haven't liked as much, but it almost always works this way. I did that with this bread and I have to say that either this is a bread that should only be made in the bread machine (highly unlikely in my opinion), or it's just not a bread that works for us. I doubled the recipe because just by glancing at the ingredients I knew it would be a small loaf; however, that made for a sticky mess in my bread machine. Don't worry, I'm used to them, but after putting it in the oven to rise, it rose too high and I ended up with another sticky mess--and that I'm not used to. I tried again, then let it bake . . .and well, it worked, we got a loaf of bread, but hubs wasn't impressed with this. It does have air pockets, and it's chewy, but it's not that soft--believe me, my husband is a stickler about that, so I would know--and it isn't as tasty as some of the breads I've tried. Although okay, it's not our favorite. However, it does remind me somewhat of English Muffins, so if you like that texture, you may want to be all over this bread. Thanks for the recipe!

Cinnamon Teacake

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
This is an interesting recipe--yeah, no eggs and it doesn't rise much. Plus, it's rather sweet and salty, but it does make for a nice little cake. I didn't mix the butter with the sugar then top it again; instead, I just poured butter on top, then sprinkled cinnamon and sugar on top and called it good. I made this for a work get together and it was enjoyed.

Yummy Applesauce Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
Very easy and tasty. I made this for a work breakfast and didn't think one recipe would be enough, so I doubled it. It made for a huge cake--almost too huge! However, everyone at work loved it, and I was asked for the recipe. I left out the pecans but topped it with dried cranberries for a pretty touch. Very tasty, very light and doesn't need anything else. Thanks for the recipe!

Milk Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2013
Very simple, soft white bread that made hubs happy. He prefers softer breads, and this fit the bill. I had to add more liquid, so I added 1 1/4 cups milk for each loaf (I doubled this recipe) and the consistency was slightly dry even then, so it probably does need adjusting most times. I usually make the dough in the bread machine, then bake it--we just prefer the crust that way in this house. I baked at 40 mins for 350 and it was a perfect consistency for my husband's taste. This is just a basic bread, so if you want more flavor, you'll have to add spices or add ins like dried fruit or nuts. Thanks for the recipe!

Easy Taco Seasoning Mix

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2013
As advertised, quick and easy. Didn't think it was that spicy and probably could use some red pepper flakes--everyone has an opinion about spice that is personalized, so adjust to your taste. I am still not sure about the sugar component--not sure what it adds. I'd prefer to leave it out next time. It's relatively flavorful and works in a pinch, plus it makes enough to store. I like to keep empty spice jars and re-use them for things like this, and it was enough to go in my recipe that I needed, and to almost fill a 2.62 oz McCormick spice jar. Thanks for the recipe!
