Italian Pizza Dough

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
Pretty good and easy dough. The instructions, however, are missing a step--there's an egg in this recipe but it's not clear when to add it. After trying this, I've now realized it goes into the dough--you need 1 1/4 cups of liquid, and the egg is the 1/4 cup. I made this in the bread machine--more out of laziness and wanting to multitask than anything else--and forgot to check it until it was done. That's when I realized it needed more liquid. No big; I just added in liquid (put in water bc I wasn't thinking) and let it go again. This made for a light, quick pizza dough that is perfect for a regular thick crust. If you like thin crust, you'd probably want to make two crusts out of it. Made it for D's Taco Pizza recipe and it worked well. thanks for the recipe!

Three Bean Salad I

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
Pretty good . . .I cut back on the oil (used 1/2 c) and the sugar (also used 1/2 c) and didn't have wax or black beans, so I just doubled the green beans and the kidney beans. I put this in the fridge yesterday afternoon and just stirred whenever I opened the fridge for anything else; left it in overnight and we tried it for lunch. Not bad, but we both felt it was missing something--maybe salt? I added about a teaspoon of kosher salt to the mix and we will try it again after it has had some time to sit. It was a tad sweet for me, but it's also not too vinegary for hubs, so this is a pretty nice recipe. I'll see if the salt helps. Thanks for the recipe!

Simple Roasted Chickpea Snack

Reviewed: May 5, 2013
I've made these before--I have photographic proof--but I never reviewed them. I vaguely remember I did have some trouble with them before, as it took them forever to roast and started to burn before they were completely crispy. So, I read through some of the top reviews before attempting this again and made sure my chickpeas were as rinsed and dried as I could possibly make them (rinsed and left in colander for about 1/2 hour, then spread out on a paper towel covered plate for at least another half hour. I believe I may try the suggestion to use cooked from dried and then frozen beans next time-this time, I used canned chickpeas. I then put them in the oven at 400 degrees without putting the olive oil and spices on them, shaking every 10 minutes, for a total of 40 minutes. Then I took them out, drizzled olive oil--about a tablespoon, max--on the chickpeas, then baked for another 10 minutes, shook them, checked them, and baked another 10 more. I might try 450 next time and keep checking them, as most of the chickpeas are crisp, but there are a few that still aren't quite as crispy as I like. However, they didn't burn, and they are pretty tasty--maybe just a tad more salt or garlic powder. Thanks for the recipe!

Slow Cooker Chili with Beer

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
Very good chili--tasty, but heavy on the liquid, and I didn't use 2 cups of beer. I used 1 can of beer, which amounts to about 1 1/2 cups. I think I'd cut back on the beer and make sure the beans are drained next time. I like my chili thicker and less runny. Makes a ton--as most soups and chili's do--so it's a good thing we liked it. Hubs had 2 servings. I did use half the amount of meat and added lots of garlic. Thanks for the recipe!

Oatmeal and Wheat Flour Blueberry Pancakes

Reviewed: May 4, 2013
Not bad pancakes. A trifle runny but pretty tasty. I used about a cup of family farm grown blueberries, which apparently are more tart than what are sold in the stores, so hub asked me if I'd made raspberry pancakes. No, I hadn't, but raspberries would be good in this. Added cinnamon and vanilla and it made a lot of leftover pancakes that I guess we'll have for breakfast tomorrow. Pretty easy. Thanks for the recipe!

Canadian Bacon and Pineapple Pizza

Reviewed: May 2, 2013
Left off the onion and used red bell pepper instead of green since that's what I had. I also used a crust made from Bread Machine Pizza Dough. Very easy, relatively quick, and a pretty decent meal. Thanks for the recipe!

Shrimp, Broccoli, and Sun-dried Tomatoes Scampi with Angel Hair

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2013
This was pretty good. I made a couple of changes; mixed the broccoli with some olive oil and plenty of Old Bay and roasted it in the oven. I also mixed the shrimp with Old Bay and left out the butter completely. Tasty, quick, and a nice dinner. I do think, however, I'd have not liked all that butter so I'm glad I left it out. Otherwise, very good. Thanks for the recipe!

Bagel Bread

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2013
Hubs LOVES this bread. I've made him 3 batches already since last weekend . . .he devoured the first loaf almost within a day, so I made another batch but doubled it this time, adding 1/2 c of flour because the first batch was pretty sticky. He complained bitterly, however, that I had changed it and it wasn't as soft . . .blah, blah, blah. It tasted the same to me, and with an extra 1/2 c flour of the doubled recipe, it was a perfect bread dough consistency! At any rate, I was skeptical this bread would taste bagel-y without the boiling step you use for bagels, but it surprised me. It is really chewy and while the crust isn't exactly bagel, it still does remind me of bagel-y goodness. I usually bake in the oven--I baked at 375 for 45 minutes and it turned out well. Clearly this is a recipe that is a keeper in our house. Thanks for the recipe!

Greek Chicken, Lemon and Egg Soup- Avgolemono- Gluten Free, Dairy Free

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
Yum! Made in the slow cooker. Accidentally added the lemon with the chicken too soon, but it worked out really well. Hubs even liked it, and the lemon flavor is barely there--not strong at all. Very easy; had to temper a little more than recipe stated.

Slow-Cooked Baked Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
Mine were pretty runny, but I'm pretty sure that's all my fault and I dumped in too much water. I used already cooked beans (I cooked up loads a few months ago and froze them, so I used those) so skipped the cooking the beans part. I just started from the third step. I used ham lunch meat (all I had) and other than it being runny, everyone seemed to enjoy. I put it on the crock pot on high for about 4 hours since we wanted them for lunch. I thought they were too sweet, but hubs disagreed--I'm not a fan of sweet beans--he thought they were perfect. Thanks for the recipe! Update 1/25/15: We made this a second time with already cooked beans and less water . . .as well as less ketchup since we'd run out of it at 1 cup. Hubs added about a 1/2 c of bbq sauce instead, and he said that he liked these a bit better than before. I agree actually; the bbq sauce makes the flavor pop and be bolder than without. all in all, this is a good recipe that holds up well to adjustments. Thanks again!

Marinade for Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2013
Very nice. It does make loads of marinade, so I decided to make all the marinade and marinate some veggies as well--I marinated chicken breasts (separately, of course), bell pepper strips, and broccoli stalks overnight. Hubs grilled the chicken and I roasted the veggies in the oven. Served it all at a barbecue with family and they LOVED it, chicken and veggies. I sent home the leftovers with the sister in law, she loved it so much. I did leave out the salt since we have people watching their sodium--I thought it was plenty salty anyway. Really easy, and tasted kind of like teriyaki to me. We all enjoyed it.

Milk and Honey Loaf

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2013
Very easy, makes 3 good size loaves--well, probably 4. I made this in my bread machine but failed to look at the amounts prior to starting, so I ended up with a rather sticky dough since I couldn't fit the last cup of whole wheat flour in the bread machine. My fault, certainly; there is no reason I couldn't have halved it, which is really what I should have done. But, oh, well, no harm done, and I ended up with a somewhat hearty but not too hearty loaf (hubs didn't complain, always a huge plus) that worked well for sandwiches and toast equally. Thanks for the recipe!

English Muffin Loaves

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Very nice toasted and for breakfast. I guess it's the baking soda that puts the holes in the bread. Really easy, and because I made very small loaves ended up with 3 of them. I'm freezing two of them for when I don't feel like making bread. Didn't have any issues with the dough being too sticky or not sticky enough. I did roll in corn meal before baking just to make them a tad more English muffin-y. Thanks for the recipe!

Prosciutto Cups

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
Very easy. I made these in 5 minutes and just let bake. We tried them for breakfast and I made them in regular muffin pans--I had prosciutto to use up, but it's very long and wide and 2x the size of normal prosciutto (that's Costco for you) so I would've have to slice it and didn't want to deal with it. So I made about 6 of these cups and put in cheese and egg in the remaining prosciutto cups, then baked at 350 for a half hour. Really good! This was a nice breakfast, and the eggs worked perfectly too. Now I have breakfast for the rest of the week, always a bonus! I did add some bacon and some seasoned salt to the prosciutto cups--tasty. Thanks for the recipe!

Pull-Apart Hot Cross Buns

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
Delicious. I love the pop the cranberries give to these buns. These make huge buns; if you want smaller, make 24 buns--12 were huge. Worked, but huge. I went to make the frosting and learned I had no confectioner's sugar, so I just used some leftover frosting I had in the fridge with pecans. Not exactly the same, but delicious. I love the cardamom in this. Thanks for the recipe!

Mozzarella-Stuffed Meatballs

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
Nice meatballs. A little time consuming, but fun to have the mozzarella inside. I rarely make meatballs, so I followed the recipe (relatively, used mozzarella ball that I cut--no string cheese) and cooked on the stove top. Next time I think I'll bake--these ooze out mozzarella, and make for greasier than necessary meatballs on the stove top. All in all, though, we loved these. Very good with pasta.

Brazilian Chicken with Coconut Milk

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2013
Very good . ..but spicy, and I left out almost all of the cayenne--just put in about 1/8 of a teaspoon. We can be weird about tomatoes in sauces that are not spaghetti, so I just left them out and used red pepper instead--made for a nice slight crunch and flavor. This is a very pretty dish and was lovely over rice. I'd cut back on the spice for our household, though. Thanks for the recipe!

Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
Good, but definitely bland, so needs some spicing up. I noted the reviews and added a Montreal Steak flavoring (garlic and onion) and worried it was too much since I dumped more than I intended, but it worked really well and gave it a good flavor. Used regular instead of roasted red peppers and it was fine--just added to the latter half of the potato cooking time. I needed to let the eggs set longer, about 20 minutes, then put in the broiler (on low) for 4 minutes. Nice breakfast, and definitely could work for dinner. However, be aware that this is extremely thin so I was still hungry after one serving and ate two. Thanks for the recipe.

Guinness® Dogs

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2013
So these aren't too bad, but I didn't really taste much extra flavor--I used Nathan's hot dogs, which have a really distinctive flavor, so maybe that's my problem. I also think I'd prefer a bit more beer--1 bottle didn't really cover the hot dogs--to flavor, so I think I might try these again in a smaller pan or in a slow cooker to allow for the flavors to meld longer. Definitely an interesting idea, though. Thanks for the recipe.

Homemade Tomato Basil Pasta Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2013
Very simple, quick and easy. This is not going to be a thick, smooth sauce like the jars in the store, but a fresh, chunky sauce. I like other sauces better, I must admit, but this is a good way to use up tomatoes (I had 4 beefsteak tomatoes to use up) and is pretty tasty. I left out the water--in my experience, tomatoes are watery enough--and just used olive oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Served over mini penne and had a nice, quick, filling lunch with salad. Thanks for the recipe!
