Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2005
I eliminated the onions completely because neither my bf or I like them and instead added onion powder, minced garlic, and garlic powder to the sauce and potatoes. I didn't have just Cheddar but used a bag of mixed cheese and it worked well. My sauce didn't thicken in the pan but it thickened later so it was fine. I thought it turned out well--not bland like some reviewers stated--maybe because of the garlic. Mine almost burned a little on the bottom but did so probably because I used a glass baking dish and the parts that almost burned were actually still pretty good. Overall, it was fairly easy and we both liked it so I will probably make it again. **Update: I make this frequently because bf often buys too many potatoes and he really likes this, so I've gotten the trick of thickening the sauce. Just wait until it boils, and it will thicken. Obviously, I have to watch it carefully and stir frequently, but once it boils it thickens beautifully for me.

Double Tomato Bruschetta

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
I love this bruschetta and have made it several times. I add more garlic--personal preference--and will substitute parmesan cheese when I don't have mozzarella. Check the broiler often when you make this, though, as some ovens cook more quickly than others and the broiler can quickly burn the cheese and bread if you aren't watching.

Mango Shortbread Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
I didn't like this that much, but it wasn't bad. It does remind me of apple crisp, like another reviewer said, and I prefer the oatmeal topping on crisp desserts. Mine was somewhat sour, as my mango wasn't too ripe, so adding more sugar would've made it better.

Chocolate Chip Bread II

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2005
I tried this recipe out on my new bread machine, and I think it turned out well. The chocolate chips do melt during kneeding, and since I wanted chips throughout the bread I added more during the second rise cycle. I think it would actually make a great cinnamon raison bread if I substitute raisins for chocolate chips. My bf's only complaint was that it was a little dry, so I may experiment a little with the ingredients to get a moister bread.

Grilled Asparagus

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2005
I wasn't too impressed with this recipe--didn't have lots of flavor, even though I added minced garlic and onion powder. I've only tried asparagus a few times, though, and am not sure I like it anyway. My bf thought they were good, just not cooked long enough (I didn't grill and did it on the stovetop--probably should have used a larger skillet).

Grandma Minnie's Old Fashioned Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2005
Great basic recipe for sugar cookies. I added lemon juice b/c of personal preference, which made the dough a little more sticky than it should have been. My only suggestion would be to watch these cookies closely while in the oven. 5 minutes on 400 degrees was perfect for mine.

Mall Pretzels

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2005
I'm still trying out my breadmaker, so I used it on the dough setting to mix and rise the dough. I brought the water down to about 1 1/4 cups and added minced garlic and Italian seasoning to the dough. I also brushed the finished pretzels with olive oil and sprinkled them with parmesan cheese and basil. They were great dipped in pasta sauce and my friend told me I have to make them again for her. I completely missed the part in the recipe about dipping the pretzels in baking soda and water, though. I will try that next time when I don't feel like pizza pretzels.

Libby's® Pumpkin Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2005
This bread is great. I was looking for something to use up the remainder of my canned pumpkin from the Pumpkin Roll with cream cheese filling on this site and found this. Since I had about 1/2 a can of pumpkin, I halved the recipe to make one loaf but kept 1 cup of cranberries since I like fruity bread. I only had craisins, so I soaked them and put in about 1/4 c less sugar to make up for it. It turned out really well and tastes great with warm with some of the excess cream cheese filling from the roll spread on the bread. My boyfriend wanted 2 pieces before it even had time to cool.

Amazing Whole Wheat Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
I made this in the bread machine on the dough setting and it worked well. I added about a 1/2 cup of flour because of how wet it was, but otherwise I think the recipe is great. I also prebaked the crust, and am glad I did because it puffed up in the oven.

Lemon Tea Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
I thought this was excellent. I always have to modify everything, and so I put approximately 1/4 cup of lemon juice in instead of just 3 tablespoons. because I love lemon. I didn't heat up the glaze; just whisked the sugar into the lemon juice and poured over the top of the bread. It is somewhat crumbly but delicious!

Libby's® Pumpkin Roll with Cream Cheese Filling

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2006
I've made this a few times and I always get asked for the recipe. I usually add more spices--just because I always do to any recipe--and use half maple extract and half vanilla.

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
I didn't try to make the falafels using this recipe--I have an excess of mix lying around--but the sauce is great! Update 4/1/12: I finally made these falafels! I didn't make them by frying them, though; I used the crockpot lady's technique of dipping them in oil, then cooking in the crockpot on high until done. It worked perfectly! Even the bf, who used to hate falafels, pronounced them good. Excellent falafel recipe, thanks! This time I didn't make the sauce--used a storebought one.

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2006
I love these cookies. I chilled them overnight and baked them today. I found that putting the jam in a ziploc bag to pipe helped keep from making a mess and made the jam easier to handle--squishing it in the bag warms it up. I think they look adorable and they taste delicious! *Update*: I made these once with the hand mixer. I won't ever do that again! It makes the butter melt and they don't turn out. Use a pastry cutter like I usually do and they will turn out very well.

The Best Doggy Biscuits!

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2006
My dog loved this recipe. We also had another dog over this weekend and she loved them too. My dog is allergic to corn, so I substituted white flour for the cornmeal and it worked well. I added cinamon and parmesan cheese--go figure, the dogs loved it.

Blueberry Oat Waffles

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
These waffles are very easy to make and taste great. It was the perfect amount for breakfast with my boyfriend. I made these again this morning with the blueberries, and the waffles stuck like crazy to the waffle maker. We liked them but I guess the blueberries require a bit more of a delicate hand than I thought! We'll try again another time--perhaps fresh blueberries are not the way to go! Still tasted delicious though!

Eggplant Supper Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This soup is very good but makes a lot. I halved the recipe and I still have plenty of servings. I had to improvise with the broth, as I didn't have canned broth. I used ground turkey and chicken buillon instead (3 cubes with 3 cups). It still came out very thick--if you like your soup more liquid, you may want to add more broth.

Eggplant Croquettes

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
I've made these a few times, and they always come out great. I omit the onions since I don't like them, but I increase the garlic. They are easy and are great eaten like hamburgers.

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
I really enjoyed these burgers. I improvised a lot, though, just because I didn't have everything in the recipe. I didn't use onions or green peppers but added more garlic than it called for. Mine did not fall apart in the pan, but that could be because I halved the recipe but still used an entire egg and added bread crumbs until it stuck together. It made them very moist. I fried them on the stove top in some olive oil and topped them with swiss cheese. Yum!

Golden Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This soup is very easy to make and very filling. I omitted ham and put in a chedder and mozzarella mix I had on hand instead of American cheese. I loved it.

Slow Cooker Lasagna

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
Very easy and quick--the hardest part is mixing in the lasagna noodles, as they are big. I think I will layer it next time just to avoid that, but otherwise perfect. Tastes like regular lasagna, and even my bf, who does not like ricotta cheese, liked this recipe.
