Best Ever Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
I like the versatility of this recipe, adding ingredients to suit one's personal taste. The only change I made to the base recipe was to replace half the amount of oil with unsweetened applesauce. Other than that, the peach-ginger muffins I made came out fabulous. Thanks!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
Never having made fudge, I chose this recipe for the ease of preparation (and no candy thermometer). The results truly are 5 star, no graininess and a great fudge-y flavor. I cut the pieces very small to fit in mini foil cups -- the perfect portion to satisfy a sweet tooth.

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
Oh these are sooo good. Followed the recipe exactly as written and at first I thought the batter was too thick (especially after the "test" pancake looked done, but was still raw in the middle), but lowering the heat on the griddle solved that. The result -- perfectly fluffy pancakes. Tried some batter in a Belgian waffle iron (sprinkled the raw batter with chopped pecans) and the waffles came out even better. Served with Honey Butter (also on this site). Thanks for a wonderful breakfast treat... or is it dessert??

Wonton Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2006
Wanting to use up a 1/2lb of ground turkey, I came across this recipe. Talk about easy and versatile! Almost anything can be added to the filling -- I minced some water chestnuts and added a dash of sesame oil. Froze the wontons in individual servings for whenever the soup craving hits. Would also be good steamed then fried as potstickers. Thanks!

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2006
Ok, I gave this a whirl to see what sour cream (instead of ricotta) tastes like in baked ziti. Not only is it creamier and less grainy, it also tastes like ricotta! I subbed ground turkey for the beef, used low fat cheeses/sour cream and my own sauce with spectacular results. Makes A LOT, too; I halved the recipe to 4 servings and there is still enough leftover for 2 hearty portions. This has become a new family favorite. Thanks!

A-Number-1 Banana Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2006
Great banana flavor in this cake, moist too. I cut back a bit on the sugars since the frosting was sweet (Chocolate Cheese Frosting), then added a tsp each of vanilla and cinnamon. Baked in a 9x13 glass dish for about 35 minutes. Will make again when I need to use up those over-ripe bananas. Thanks!

Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2006
Sweet potatoes with a kick - yum. Mixed some of the dry spice mixture into f/f mayo and used as a dipping sauce. The whole family loved it. Thanks!

Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2010
It's back to basics with this reliable buttercream. I halved the recipe and was able to generously decorate 12 cupcakes. Mid-way thru piping, I did have to pop the decorator's bag into the fridge as the butter started to soften too much from the heat of my hands, so keep this in mind while working in a warm kitchen in the middle of an August heatwave...

Princess Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2010
This was the perfect cookie choice for a tea party. Light lemon flavor with just enough princess-approved sparkle (when rolled in sugar prior to baking). Thank you, MRSPARKERII, for a fun fairy tale-filled afternoon.

Flash-blasted Broccoli and Feta Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2011
Superfoods, unite! Great pasta dish with or without the broccoli (ate most of the roasted fresh broccoli as it came out of the oven -- it's that inviting). Nutrient rich as well as flavorful, this dish is delectable even at room temperature. I *will* make this often -- it's fantastic!

Shish Tawook Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
You know you're in for some out-of-this-world grilled chicken when your mouth starts to water just from the wonderful aromas wafting from a closed grill -- this has to be one of the most fragrant chicken recipes I've ever made. I followed the marinade precisely, subbing crushed whole green cardamom pods for the ground. But instead of boneless chicken, I chose bone-in chicken (minus the skin) which I scored to allow the thick marinade to permeate the meat in an overnight soak. Because I used a larger cut of chicken, I grilled low and slow to prevent burning or charring... and it was so worth the wait.

French Pastry Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2006
I used this recipe for the crust of a free-form pear tart. The dough was so easy to work with once chilled. It's a keeper -- thanks!

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2006
I usually add spices to oven roasted potatoes, but I never used all of these at once. Afraid that minced garlic would burn leaving it bitter, I used garlic powder instead. I did add a 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne in addition to the red pepper flakes for an extra kick... yum. Thanks for the amped-up version of an old favorite!

Thyme Green Beans with Almonds

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
This is one of my favorite methods to prepare green beans, fresh from the garden or frozen from the previous season's bounty. If I'm in a wash-one-less-pot mood, I often just let the beans steam in the covered saute pan, then remove the lid, amp up the heat and allow the beans to caramelized a bit in the browned butter. I've found that mincing the thyme is optional as whole sprigs will perfume the dish and drop some leaves as they cook with the beans. Even though 'regular' thyme is really good in this dish, lemon thyme is fantastic.

Taco Seasoning I

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2011
If you like ingesting maltodextrin, tons of sodium and msg (most often under the label of 'natural flavoring'), then DO NOT use this homemade blend of spices and herbs. I love that salt is not the first nor largest ingredient -- just proves that flavor does not necessarily mean sacrifice.

Easy Slow Cooker French Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2006
I love fix-n-forget recipes, especially ones that turn out so well in the crockpot. I quickly seared the roast before putting it in the crockpot; when it was done 5 hours later, I made 'canoes' in crusty French rolls to hold all of the filling. Next time I'll add a few more sauted onions and a bit of thyme before cooking. Thanks for an easy weeknight meal!

Grandma Bellows' Lemony Shrimp Macaroni Salad with Herbs

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
To call this simply a macaroni salad is a severe understatement. This is one of the finer mayo-based salads I've made in a long time. All of the components work in harmony ~ the perfect amount of crunch is achieved with the celery and onion; the fresh dill, parsley and lemon juice add lightness and brightness; and even tho' I used frozen shrimp as opposed to canned ... it's just an added bonus to find *any* shrimp in what appears to be an 'ordinary' mac salad. I'm sure this recipe could hold up to a tweak here or there... adding a smidgen of this or that.... but when something is perfect as-is, change is unnecessary.

Jacky's Fruit and Yogurt Muffins

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2006
Fantastic and healthy muffins for grab-n-go breakfasts. I used 1/2 whole wheat flour, f/f wild berry yogurt and reduced the butter and sugar amounts. Made mini-muffins, each with a whole blackberry in the center... but the variations are endless. Thanks!

Slow-Roasted Tomatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
I used a hodgepodge of tomatoes --roma, plum, heirloom-- fresh from the garden so I skipped the sprinkle of sugar; although it would probably be beneficial to use when roasting store-purchased tomatoes in the middle of January. Instead of dried herbs, I scattered sprigs of fresh oregano and thyme on top of the tomatoes prior to roasting on parchment-lined sheet pans (which saved soaking and scrubbing caramelized tomato juices). I used most of the roasted tomatoes in a free-form rustic tart, but they would also make excellent additions to dips/spreads, pizza, red sauce ... if they don't get eaten as-is first.
