Oat Bran Muffins

Reviewed: May 25, 2006
The first time I made these muffins I thought they were too salty and a bit dry. The second time I made them I reduced the baking soda and baking powder to 1 teaspoon each, increased the oil to 1/3 of a cup and added a cup of blueberries. Turned out perfect. It is VERY important to let the ingredients sit for at least 10 minutes to allow the oat bran to soften.

Gramma's Old Fashioned Chili Mac

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2007
This dish can be made in one deep frying pan with a lid. Saute the beef with the onions, peppers and celery until translucent. Add the rest of the ingredients including the macaroni mix well and cover. Cook until macaroni is done (about 15 minutes) stirring occasionally. The flavors blend better using this method and there's only one pan to wash. A tablespoon of chili powder is nice and not to spicy.

Ciabatta Bread

Reviewed: May 7, 2007
I've been looking for a good hamburger bun recipe and this is it. I dump it all in an oiled boil over a pan of boiling water in the oven for an hour after the initial 15 minute relax. With floured hands I form 5 flatten balls, roll them in sesame seeds, spray them to keep them moist and let them rest again while the oven heats (usually for 20 minutes). I spray them at three minutes and 6 minutes and leave the pan of water underneath while they bake. They are perfect, way better than anything you can buy! Thanks for sharing!

Sausage and Rice Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: May 17, 2006
Recipe turned out great. I won't use minute rice so I used half a pound of ground beef half a pound of ground pork browned them and the chopped onion in a large frying pan with a lid. When that was finished browning I added 2 cups of raw long grain white rice and the rest of the ingredients brought it to a boil reduced heat to medium low and let it simmer for a half hour until the rice was cooked. Then I stuff the peppers raw, baked them for half an hour added the cheese on top stuck them back under the broiler until cheese bubbled. Only one pan to clean up and all the flavors blended well.

Taco Pizza

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2007
We use Tyler Florence's pizza recipe so I can't comment on this one but the idea to mix the refried beans with the salsa was a good one. We browned the beef and chopped onion together, added 1 cup of water and the taco seasoning and cooked it down as directed on the package. We warmed a can of refried beans with enough salsa to make it the right consistency to use as the base sauce. We put the beans down then the crumbled beef and cheese and cooked it in a 500 degree oven. We added chopped tomato and lettuce and piped sour cream over in a sandwich bag with one corner cut off when it came out of the oven. Best taco pizza we've ever had. Thanks for the idea.

Italian Sausage - Tuscan Style

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2007
I've tried several recipes for Italian sausage and this one is by far the best. I scale it to one pound of pork, reduce the salt to 1 tsp and add a teaspoon of fennel. Perfect sausage without fillers for half the price! Thanks for sharing!

Chicken with Chipotle

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
This sauce is great! This was my first time using chipotle in adobo. I only used one and froze the rest individually on a cookie sheet. We love it and we will be using this very versatile sauce with a variety of meats and starches. Thanks for sharing!

Pizza Crust Fantastico

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2006
I thought the tomato in the crust competed with the toppings and was acidic tasting. It was also sticky and hard to work with. I prefer a regular olive oil crust with a tablespoon or so of Italian seasoning.

Delicious Gluten-Free Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2007
Well named. Excellent recipe. We cut the water down to 1 cup. For the very best waffles we use one cup of milk and beat the egg whites to stiff peaks and fold them in just before baking. Thanks for sharing this great and versatile recipe!

Greek Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2007
I found this flavorless as written. It benefited from a teaspoon of cumin and a 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne. I served it with balsamic vinegar and feta as per another reviewers suggestion. The bites with the balsamic and feta were tasty, but overall not worth making again. This is the only dinner I've ever made that my family wouldn't finish.

Italian Meatball Sandwich Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2006
The recipe as written is good. I buttered the bread and sprinkled garlic salt on it then toasted it in the oven while it was preheating, made it perfect, not soggy at all. I missed vegetables though so the second time I made it I browned the meat with chopped onions, celery, green and red peppers and used a large jar of a maranara sauce. Turned out great

Cream Cheese Coffee Cake II

Reviewed: May 16, 2006
I reduced the lemon to 1 teaspoon and made 12 large muffins. A little hard to get out of the muffin tin because of the soft middle, but very tasty. Went quick.

Dash's Donair

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
Wow, thanks for sharing! We developed an addiction for donair's when we had a great shop closeby. When it closed down I tried a couple of recipes and nothing came close. This meat recipe is BANG ON! We serve it with Tzatziki sauce and fresh pita's made with Peppy's Pita recipe from this site. Delectable!

Fettuccini Carbonara

Reviewed: May 11, 2007
I cook the bacon flat on cookies sheets in the oven and saute a large chopped onion in a frying pan. I add a cup of heavy cream to the onion pan after I pull it off flame. I beat three whole eggs which I toss with the cooked pasta first by itself. Delicious!

Cabbage Jambalaya

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2005
I have made hundreds of recipes from this site. I'm reviewing this one first because it's my favorite. I make it just as it is and it's great or I recently started added a big bag of coleslaw instead of the head of cabbage when I'm pressed for time. I've also used two cans of tomato soup to make it taste more like cabbage rolls and that's great as well. Thanks for putting it on Susan, it's my Grandson's favorite food (he's fifteen months old)
