Open-Faced Omelet

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2004
Quick, easy and delicious, all in one skillet! It't colorful and would make a beautiful brunch dish for company (if you can get it out of your pan in one piece, which takes just a bit of skill!) I've always used frozen corn for this recipe. In a pinch I've substituted sweet or plain onions for the green onions and it still tastes great. I have even used dried basil but fresh basil leaves make it taste better and look more elegant. The recipe says "1 1/2 finely chopped basil" without a measurement - I took that to mean 1 1/2 fresh leaves and it seemed about right.

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2004
I doubled the amount of barley, eliminated the celery (for a family member who doesn't like celery), used low sodium canned tomatoes and used low sodium beef broth in place of the water and beef boullion to reduce the sodium content. This soup is so delicious and freezes well.

Corn, Sausage and Pepper Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2004
To reduce the sodium content I have used low sodium chicken broth and sometimes even eliminated the kielbasa and this soup still tastes and looks great! It's colorful and yummy and tastes good leftover (I've never tried freezing it though). I like the amount of cream (not too heavy) and if I want a creamier texture I puree more of the corn.

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2004
I love this recipe with no alterations (although I use low sodium chicken broth to reduce the sodium content and it still tastes great)! My family enjoys this as a vegetarian dinner, not just a salad, and it tastes great cold leftover the next day. When I make this for a party, I double the recipe to be sure I have my own leftovers!

Seattle Dutch Babies

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2005
So easy and yummy! I didn't change a thing and this recipe was just like the Dutch Babies we used to order at the restaurant. The pancake itself isn't supposed to be too flavorful, it's the toppings (in our case, fresh-squeezed lemon juice and lots of powdered sugar) that give it real zing! The trick is to bake the pancake long enough for it to puff up and brown slightly at the edges. We had to bake a bit longer than the recipe said, adjusting for our oven and the type of pie dish used.

Tanya's Snickerdoodles

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
This recipe is easy and it makes a ton of cookies - perfect for a holiday cookie exchange. I chill half the dough while I roll the other half, and I've never had trouble with the dough being too sticky. My daughters love to help roll the balls in the sugar. The cookies are delicious and just crisp enough on the outside while soft on the inside.

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
This super-easy recipe made creamy and delicious mashed potatoes, with no changes in the recipe. I could eat these every night and my family loved them too. We used organic red potatoes since the recipe calls for using the skins.

Cranberry Sauce II

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2006
It doesn't get any easier than this! I've never liked canned cranberry sauce but this fresh sauce was delicious and so so easy to make. Make sure to use a large piece of waxed paper over the bowl in the microwave, because when the cranberries pop they really explode everywhere!

Pecan Pie V

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2006
I was thrilled to find a recipe without corn syrup, and even more thrilled when the pie turned out to be delicious! My husband said it was the best pecan pie he'd ever had! We made a design on the top with whole pecans, and followed previous suggestions to turn down the temperature to 300 degrees and cook for 45 minutes, and the top of the pie turned a beautiful golden brown without burning.

Christmas Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
Use half the onion, double the eggs, add some extra cheese to the potatoes, and put the cheese on top of the casserole in the last 20 minutes of baking or it will burn. Everyone loved this and even came back for leftovers later in the day!

Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
I should have thickened the sauce with more brown sugar as recommended, and next time I will broil the potatoes just a bit right before serving to see if that helps create a bit of candy "crunch."

Garlic Prime Rib

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2007
So delicious, easy, and really impressive! I have always followed the instructions to the letter, and have always had to cook the meat an extra 40+ minutes at 325 to get it to 145 degrees internally (no matter the oven I've used). Plan accordingly and this recipe is a huge hit! Serve it with a choice of plain horseradish and horseradish mixed with whipped cream.

Indian Curried Barley Pilaf

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
This was incredibly easy and tasty. My 8, 5 and 1 year olds loved it, in spite of their supposed dislike of onions! We left the slivered almonds and raisins as sides so the kids could choose whether or not to top their barley with either of those. Everyone was happy!

Carrot Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2010
These muffins tasted good but I was disappointed that when I filled the muffin cups 3/4 full, instead of baking to a nice top, they sank to 1/2 full. It's entirely possible I did something to cause that. I just warn others to try this recipe at least once before making it to serve to guests or take to a school function!

Shrimp and Okra Gumbo

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
I don't think you can go wrong with this recipe! We didn't have green onions, celery or enough green bell pepper so we substituted a single hot pepper (Hot Portugal, a relatively mild hot pepper), some chopped cilantro, and one finely chopped carrot. We also didn't have tomato paste so we added a splash of ketchup. The result was a fantastic, slightly spicy, delicious soup that was perfect topped with white rice.

Blueberry Oat Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
Easily doubled recipe and delicious even with the substitution of whole wheat flour for part of the all-purpose flour (1/2 cup whole wheat and 1 cup all-purpose, or if doubling, 1 cup whole wheat and 2 cups all-purpose).

Quinoa with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Jun. 23, 2011
I made this as is and it was delicious! My husband devoured his bowl and then started in on mine. The quinoa took a little longer to cook than 10 minutes but overall the meal was easy, quick and tasty. I wouldn't change a thing.

Bean Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
Inexpensive and relatively easy for how much it makes. The flavor was mild but not plain -- just right with some ketchup and tomatoes on top! I made Belle's Hamburger Buns to go with these, but the burgers are so filling we could have eaten them on their own without the buns.

Red Bean Salad with Feta and Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
Delicious as is but also good with blue cheese instead of feta if you like the creamy tang of that. This recipe doubles easily (and uses up more of the head of cabbage) so I always double it and have leftovers the next day.
