Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2009
So very yum and versatile, too. I added chunks of zucchini for just a little more volume. Excellent!

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
We liked this. I used it for the bread machine, and did a slight pre-cook of the shaped crust before loading it with our favorite sauce and toppings and putting in for final bake. That hot oven browned the cheese, and made this thick crust done through and through. 5/15/10 Made again. This time by hand...used 1/2 cup wheat germ for 1/2 cup of the flour. DH actually requested that I make this one again, and he seemed satisfied with the tweak. Still gets thumbs up all the way.

Sensational Strawberry Kiwi Zing Smoothie

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2010
The zing is there, as promised. ;o) Made as directed, with an improvised vanilla yogurt. My smoothie looks thinner than yours, so I think my yogurt may not be as thick ?? Anyway, goes through a straw more easily this way, right? I was the only taker, as DH did not care for the zing; so, I have poured up leftover smoothie into ice cube tray, having drunk a whopping 1.5 servings all by myself. Refreshing.

Omelet in a Mug

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2010
I used one egg, and sausage crumbles instead of ham. This worked great. I can see this being a quick and easy way to make a homestyle McMuffin. Perch the egg atop a toasted English muffin, wrap in a napkin and you're out the door!

Quick and Easy Shrimp Fajitas

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2010
This was, as stated, quick and easy. It was also beautiful. You can add still more color and yet another later of flavor, by using spinach tortillas...oh and for adding tang...lemon or lime juice instead of water. ;o)

Basic Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2014
Great jumping off point, as others have stated, but is good even without tweaking. The lemon and the freshly ground pepper are standouts. This time I added a small chopped apple; and for the dressing some dijon mustard (1/2 tsp.), 1/2 of a drive-thru honey mustard bbq pkt. we had on hand, 1/8 tsp. garlic powder, pinch of onion powder, along with the lemon juice and pepper. Served over a bed of spinach and garnished with dried cranberries, almond slivers, bacons bits.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2011
These were so easy! They are good, as so many have already said. I down-sized to stuffing for 3 burritos, but used two 10 inch ones and over-stuffed them. My husband and I split one , and will have the second one for lunch tomorrow. Glad to have finally given these a whirl.

Jamie's Minestrone

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
You don't even need another rave review, but you get it again. This was very good. I don't often get excited when I'm making something, but just putting this together was a treat to the eye. I took the liberty of using young green beans instead of canned, steaming them for five minutes before chopping to add when the canned would have gone in. Also, we already had some cooked spaghetti in the refrigerator, so I chopped the strands for the pasta portion, which may not have been as pretty, but was faithful to the flavor concept, surely. For any who are doing Weight Watcher's. This comes in at 4 points per generous serving.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups

Reviewed: May 6, 2010
I wasn't going to make these, but they just looked too fun to pass up. So, with just the two of us here, I reduced the recipe to "2" servings and made four mini cups in a tassie pan (mini muffin pan). Used semi sweet chips, because that's what we have, and reduced salt to a sprinkling of sea salt over the pb/sugar mixture in what appeared to be appropriate amount. DH liked, and we'll do again some time when we have the sweeter chocolate chips, but really the semi-sweet worked for me.

Buttermilk Shake

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
This was good. I actually was able to drink buttermilk without tasting the buttermilk per se. I really did like the lemon zest...and if you are thinking of tweaking at all, don't skip the zest. I came back to give this the 5th star today, as I've had a 1/4 of this recipe three times now in five days. So, something tells me it's a taste you may have to cozy up to. Today I added some sliced frozen strawberries to the whirl...definitely shades of cheesecake going on with this.

Apple Bacon Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2009
MmmmMmmmm, Good! Kind of a mellow soup. Very nice blend of flavors. I did a teetotaler's version, but crushed some grapes in with the apples and 1/4 cup water to make up for absence of wine. Still, though, an excellent soup, I'm sure either way.

Roasted Carrots and Radishes

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2011
Tried this one last night to compliment a slow cooked roast. Really tasty and colorful. My only tweaks were to add three "new potatoes" quartered, and to use garlic and a minced slice of lemon in place of the garlic salt and lemon pepper. I'm sure the powder and pepper would have been fine, but when you have fresh, go with it, right? ,>.>,> Normally not a fan of radishes, but these were fine, all bitterness/sharpness melted away in the roasting process.

Spicy Pumpkin and Sweet Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2009
Had we not been eating grilled "pumpkin" (kabocha here in Japan) rind and all for years, I might have been wary of this recipe. BUT you CAN eat the rind, folks! Simon's spice blend was just so tasty. I used a smallish kabocha, eight inch diameter, and one can of sweet potatoes, drained. I had about two and a half cups of chicken stock in the freezer which had half a large carrot cooked in, so used that and added cans of broth until I got the thickness desired (using a hand held blender and puree'ing directly in the cookpot). The flavor was really good. I serve with toasted wedges of pita bread, which seems a good match, as the soup is quite thick, even having "thinned" it, so wedges can be dipped to good advantage. Even with the smallish kabocha and using only 1 tin of potatoes, I had lots and lots of soup, and now besides the quart in my freezer, there's another meal's worth in the fridge. Good return on time invested. Thanks, Simon.

Pineapple Sirloin Skewers

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
Used Worcestershire sauce instead of soy sauce, and added a splash of balsamic vinegar and fresh ginger to the marinade. Skewered the beef the next day along with red pepper, red onion, mushrooms (and yes, pineapple). This one got a sixth star from DH, but there seems to be no where to place it. Oh, well, slide on the tip of that last skewer!

Hot Date with a Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
This one is company special. I could not manage to pound my chicken to 1/4 inch (and I was beginning to think the neighbors might be wondering WHAT was going on over here), so I slit the pieces and stuffed the slit meat, pinning with toothpicks and proceeding as instructions indicated. Had to substitute craisins for the apricots this time, but this worked well with the apple flavor. (Oooh, wonder what dried mangoes might be like!) Also, we are not the brave souls we once were, so reduced the cayenne by half with no ill effect. Truly beautiful, fairly simple (if you work around the 1/4 inch thing), and very, very tasty. Thank you for posting, Jack.

Sweetened Condensed Milk

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2011
Only change was methodology. I melted my butter in a glass saucepan in microwave, then added the boiling water and the pre-measured sugar and powder milk. Whisked to combine and kept stirring until sugar and milk powder was all well dissolved. Ingredients were as written. Measured in grams for the dry and ended up with 12 oz. (375 ml) sweetened condensed milk.

Chocolate Teddy Bear Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2009
This one is time consuming, alright, and the taste is good but not fantastic. They look so very cute, though. So what I have done to make them carry their weight in trouble is use one or two bears as the top cookies in gift cookie tins or bags containing decorated sugar cookies or some other less designer intensive cookie. The little bear acts as emcee for the treasures by which he is surrounded. ;o)

Veggie Skewers

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2011
This was good. Cooks up so quickly and is a great veggie compliment to ribs or steak.

Marci’s Noyo Harbor Pan Roast

Reviewed: May 13, 2010
This came together without a hitch. I opted for the low end of the cayenne, but might should have nudged forward just a tad above. I used taro (cod) and kani (crab). We enjoyed this with a crusty bread on the side, as suggested. Thank you for posting the recipe and for even posting a blog walking me through the (nearly) uncharted waters of cooking with fish(!)

Donut Muffins

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
In mini muffin pans, there will be a yield of between 17 and 24 muffins. I over-filled the cups and still got 17. They are yummy, and terribly easily popped in your mouth, as Paula has warned. So, heeding the warning, I used apple sauce for the muffin margarine, but used butter for the dip and dip topping. These were fast, easy, and are pretty as the pictures. I imagine the butter/margarine in the muffin would be the tastier option (as written). Thanks for posting.
