Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2006
Wonderful. I adjust to use with vegetable broth to make it vegetarian, and it worked perfectly.

Pineapple Fried Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
It turned out very dry, not as sweet as I expected. Didn't go over very well with me or my roommate. I had tons of leftovers that went bad. I would try it again if I added tons more juice. It just didn't have the flavor I expected.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2006
Fabulous. Constantly requested by my friends. I won't buy stuffed mushrooms at a restaurant now because I know I can do tons better.

Tuscan Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
I altered this to be a vegetarian soup. A bit of a stretch, maybe, but it was awesome and a hit with friends (including one meatlover.) Substitute vegetable broth (I used a mix of vegetable broth and vegetable bouillon substitute) and zesty italian vegetarian brats. Added some crushed red pepper for spice. Lovely! I need to make more.

Baked Brie and Mushroom Sourdough Appetizer

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
This turned out perfectly, was easy to make, and tasted great. I used too big a loaf of bread, though, and I think next time I might try a smaller round, if I can find one. I also buttered the top and sprinkled it with garlic salt and parmesan and baked it at the same time. It also was very well received.

Baked Salmon with Coconut Crust

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2006
This is the best fish I ever ate! My roommate actually made it. We also bought a different kind of fish, a white one, because it was on sale. She also used a ton more lemon juice. Not only are we going to have this again, but we're going to try it with shrimp next because we have so much coconut leftover. And then of course, salmon, because it's on sale at the store this week.

Easy Decadent Truffles

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2006
This recipe worked more or less perfectly for me. I did everything as described. I found that while rolling, the balls softened, so I just stuck them back in the fridge when I was done. I coated some in coconut and some more in crushed walnut. Oh, and I added a bit of rum. But I think I needed to add more. It was about 2 teaspoons worth, and except for the first bite, you really don't notice the rum.

Golden State Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Very good. Better than another mushroom soup recipe I have made from this site. Next time, though, I will cut either the bouillon or the broth. It was very salty. Overall, the recipe was easy to prepare; I made a double batch so it would last a while.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
I used bleu cheese dressing because I don't like ranch and also baked it in an oven instead of a slow cooker, as suggested by someone else. About 20 minutes at 350. Served with tortilla chips and crackers.

Best Ever Blueberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2009
After reading reviews, I added more sugar to the blueberries as well as a liberal dash of cinnamon. I liked it so well that I made it again the next week, and doubled the cobbler part. Still very tasty, but I probably should've let it bake longer. It was a bit gooey in the middle in spots. But that's not a problem for me.

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
At work, they called these my crack muffins, because they were addictive. And the first one is free, and you can't eat just one. I recommend doubling or tripling the recipe so you can bring some to work or give some away and amaze your friends.

Apple Cider Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
This was a big hit, and the best thing is that it got better with age. If we had self-control we should've let it sit a day. Oh well. Leftover were awesome. I fudged and used more potatoes than I should have, and added some mushrooms. The way I thought of this recipe was that it was pot roast, plus cider minus the crockpot. And more potatoes for me is always a good thing. But that meant I had to add more liquid -- a bit more cider and a bit more water. I really wasn't sure about the apples in the stew itself, but it turned out perfect. I think some of the amounts seemed small, like the amount of flour needed to coat the meat, or the black pepper. I'm a fresh black pepper fiend, so I made sure to add lots more pepper. Mmm. Tasty. Good counterpoint to the sweet.

Danish Meatballs with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2010
Even after many mishaps (not reading my directions quite thoroughly enough), these turned out great. Turns out that you can accidentally skip the heavy cream and the meatballs will still turn out fine. I'll try it the right way next time, though. I think also in the interest of cutting down the expense, I might not use all three meats. I'm not sure how this will change the character of the meatballs, though. I followed suggestions to put the breadcrumbs in directly with the meat, which also seemed to work well.
