Greek Avgolemono Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2007
This is my all time favorite soup. It's exactly the way my yiayia taught me how to make it when I was a young girl. It's now my nephew's favorite soup and he asks for it all the time. I wouldn't change a thing. If you are short on time, use a pressure cooker to cook the chicken. I also use chicken leg quarters and skim the fat that rises to the top.

Peanut Butter Balls III

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2006
This was delicious. I have never had peanut butter balls before, but they are similar to buckeys, with out the cereal. I found that forming the balls was a little difficult because the mixture kept sticking to my hands. I solved that problem by dipping my fingers in some water. I brought some into work and everyone thought they were great.

Pastitsio II

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2006
I really enjoyed this dish. I didn't add the broth, added water instead. The other thing that I did different was that I put the noodles in the pan, added the butter, and cheese with the egg and mixed it up. I then added the beef mixture and topped that with the bechamel sauce. Just like my mother used to make. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Orange Oatmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2007
Great for breakfast muffin. I used1/2 whole wheat flour,1/2 apple sauce and 1/2 butter, used all OJ, no water,added dried cranberrys and a couple of tablespoons of ground flax seeds. I will use a little less sugar next time since I added all OJ, they came out a little on the sweet side. They came out very moist and were not crumbly. Delish!

Black Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
I have made this several times. I add 1/4 tsp of turmeric and I get a delicious yellow color. I use half the beans and serve this as a side dish. I rinse the rice until the water is clear, that way I get perfect fluffy rice every time, just like my favorite mexican restaurant.

Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti

Reviewed: May 1, 2010
I've tried so many different biscottis and I love the flavors and texture of these. The combo of vanilla and almond extract is so good. I have been making these once a week to eat with my coffee every morning. I do use canola oil instead of the light olive oil. I only have evoo in the house and that would be too strong. I also use walnuts instead of pistachios only because I have a giant bag of walnuts right now.

Muesli

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2011
I've never had muesli before but I love granola so I gave this a try. It's very versatile. I did a google search on muesli and found that most people soak it in yogurt (with a little apple juice or milk to thin it out) overnight and they add fresh grated apple. This was a delicious breakfast that kept me full all morning.

Apple Cranberry Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2007
I went apple picking and was looking for a recipe to use up some of my apples. I didn't have enough flour so I made some out of oats. I had old fashioned oats that I ground to a flour. With only 2 Tbls or Oil and the oats, I think this is a pretty healthy breakfast bread. I used dried cranberries and baked it for 60 mins. The recipe did not say to pre heat the oven so I did't, not sure if it would have made a difference or not. Between my husband and I we finished it off in less than 24 hours!

Sweet and Salty Toll House® Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2010
These are yummy. It's a nice change from the plain old chocolate chip cookie. I made a half batch and got two dozen cookies. I did not use the peanuts.

Granola Energy Bars

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I changed this up to my tastes and based on what I had on hand. Did not use raisins, wheat germ, honey, butter or chocolate chips. I added 1/2 c. ground flax, 1tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp of cloves, 1tbl cinnamon, 1/2 c apple sauce, 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1 tbl molasses and canola oil instead of the butter. I ended up using my hands to mix this up. This is a very forgiving recipe. I didn't measure most of the ingredients. The sunflower seeds were toasted unsalted and the sesame seeds I used were not toasted. Since I used the sugar and not the honey, I added the applesauce for the moisture.

Tiropetes

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2006
These came out fantastic! I made these for our annual Christmas Eve party and they were the first things to go. The only problem with them was that they leaked while baking, which is probably my fault becuase I used less feta cheese ( 8 oz)than the recipe called for. I did make them ahead and froze them on a cookie sheet. I may try it with some fresh mint next time instead of the parsley. My brother likes them with some sugar or honey on top, so good! A little time consuming but very much worth it with all the compliments you will receive =)

Pizza Dough I

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
This is so easy, even a monkey can do it!lol I used my kitchenaid with the dough hook attachment on speed 2 for 7 mins. I plopped it on a greased pan and pressed it down and out to the edges. I then added my toppings (chicken, bbq sauce, cheese and sliced onions) and when I was finished adding the toppings I then pre heated my oven to 400. I won't be buying Trader Joe's Dough anymore. This one tastes better. So super easy and so yummy. I used Rapid Rise Yeast.

Crackle Top Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2010
I search by ingredient since I didn't have any butter and wanted to bake cookies for my sister's house. I added 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 tsp of salt and used half white half whole wheat flour. They ended up baking at 10-12 mins. Perfect texture, chewy middle and nice crisp edges.

Health Nut Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2008
Really good healthy muffin recipe. I didn't have wheat germ so I used ground flax instead. I also used 1/4 c brown sugar and 1/2 c white sugar. Didn't have buttermilk on hand(who does?) so I used 1 t of lemon juice with the milk. I didn't use the nuts. The top comes out golden crispy and chewy and the inside moist and soft. This is the perfect breakfast muffin. I plan on freezing them and taking them to work. Next time I may add an extra banana for some added natural sweetness.

Pork Chops with Fresh Tomato, Onion, Garlic, and Feta

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2006
I thought this turned out great. I used fresh tomato instead of the cherry tomatoes because that is what I had on hand. This would be delicious with chicken as well. Next time, instead of feta I am going to try goat cheese. The sauce would be wonderful on pasta as well. Glad I tried this!

Canadian Barn BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2011
I would totally make this again. I used sweetend applsauce so I cut the sugar down to 1 1/2 cups. Didn't have paprika so I used chilli powder, no garlic salt so I just used garlic powder. I used Apple cider viniger instead of lemon. I made pork loin chops in the slow cooker using this sauce. They came out so tender!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2010
I added potatoes and carrots to the dish. I used canned chopped tomatoes ( not stewed) and cooked the curry in the oil for a few minuets like the others suggested. I used light coconut milk from trader joes. I don't have anything to compare this to since I rarely eat curry, but man this was good!! I served this with brown rice. This had plenty of spice, I didn't need to add any extra heat. All curry powders are not created equal so check before you add any more spice.
