Gorgonzola Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2014
YUM! Made my own gnocchi and threw them in to the cream sauce once it was reduced, added the gorgonzola, parmesan, parsley and apple. Left out the nuts. This was incredible and was as good if not better than the $15 dish at my favorite Italian place.

Brooklyn Girl's Penne Arrabiata

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
This is a great, fast and easy recipe. The only changes I make to it are to add a little oregano and to use only 1 cup of breadcrumbs and 1 egg. Sometimes I double the sauce and keep it separate from the pasta and chicken. I then freeze it to use for a quick meal another night to save one step (though really, it's so easy to do all at once). I usually don't toss the chicken in the sauce, I just serve the pasta, top with some sauce, then put a couple strips of chicken on top of that. Delicious!

Sweet Cornbread Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2013
This was by far the best cornbread I have ever had. I halved it, and used 1 cup cornmeal and 1 cup flour. Everything else I left the same (just... half). Baked for 35 minutes. Really, REALLY good.

Easy Shepherd's Pie with Garlic Romano Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2013
I've made this recipe a couple of times now - it's great! And so easy to modify to your personal preferences. Instead of canned veggies, I dice about 4-5 large carrots to cook with the onions, and then throw in about a cup of frozen peas right before taking the beef mixture off the stove. I use about 2lbs of red potatoes, weighed before peeled, and a head of cauliflower for the mash. I also use greek yogurt instead of butter - we really like the taste and texture and it's much healthier. I omit the diced tomatoes altogether. Great recipe!

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
So good! I only ever have Fat Free mayo, so I used that. Brought it to a potluck and served it for a family lunch - big hit at both. I also just used a whole rotisserie chicken.

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread II

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
Spectacular, spectacular! I used 1 c. white sugar and 1 c. brown sugar, 5 bananas (because I only had 5), about 2/3 c. choc chips (again, because that's all I had), and added 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Super delicious.

Slow Cooker Bolognese

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2013
Very simple, and very tasty. I served it over spaghetti squash, which also made it very healthy! I loved how meaty it is. UPDATE: Made it using 1/2 mild italian sausage and 1/2 very lean ground beef. Delicious!

Roast with Gravy

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
This was really easy, and was a big hit. I strained the "gravy", just because i don't like things floating around in my gravy. Served it with Yorkshire Pudding. No one detected the coffee at all. I followed this recipe to a tee. I'm not a gravy fan, but this gravy was delicious.

Lemon Custard Pudding Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Absolutely delicious. I did add more juice - I just used all of the juice from 1 lemon (and all of the zest from 1 lemon). Not because the recipe needed altering, just because I was being lazy with measurments. My pudding cake did not over brown at all. Great recipe that I'll use over and over again - thanks for sharing!

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
This bread is delicious - and as others have said, virtually no fail. It's easy and comes out great every time. Thanks for a great bread recipe! For those who have a food processor, this is how I do it (it saves on a little time): Proof yeast by dissolving yeast and sugar in the warm water and letting it set until foamy (5ish mins). Use dough blade to mix flour, salt, and olive oil in processor. Add in water mixture as fast as the flour mixture will absorb it. Mix until dough cleans the sides. Process for 45 seconds to knead. Then, I follow the directions in this recipe starting with rolling dough into ball and putting it in a big greased bowl and cover it with a damp towel. Also, I usually half the recipe - which yields two 1lb-ish loaves. Always comes out great!

Steak and Ale Pie with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
I modified this recipe, mostly because I really, really dislike mushrooms, but I really like steak and ale pie. I marinated 1lb beef in the worcestershire sauce, thyme, garlic, and parsley (1/2 tsp dried instead of 1 1/2 tsp fresh) for 6ish hours before I cooked it, and took the meat out about an hour before I cooked it. I tossed the bite sized cubed potatoes in a little olive oil, salt and pepper, and another 2 tablespoons of garlic. Instead of mushrooms, I cut up 3 carrots into bite sized pieces and tossed with a teaspoon of sugar. I baked the potatoes and carrots at 475 for 10-15 mins on aluminum foil over a baking sheet. I sauteed the beef and onions in a tablespoon of butter until the beef was browned and the onions were soft - adding salt and pepper to taste. Added a bottle of Guiness (11.5 oz I think), 3 beef bouillons, and sauteed for a bit. Spooned out the meat and onions and put the beef mixture and the potatoes/carrots in a big mixing bowl and set them aside. Reduced the Guiness, and mixed a spoonful of it with the flour then added that back to the sauce - came out thick. I poured the liquid into the big mixing bowl, stirred a little, then spooned the reduction into the pie pan, too. I only used a top pie crust that I had made from scratch - when I made it the first time I found two crusts were just too much (and I love crust!). Baked at 375 for 50 mins, and... delicious. Thanks for a yummy recipe! My boyfriend from the UK loves it.

Ruth's Grandma's Pie Crust

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2013
Great pie crust! And, so easy. I made them ahead and froze them. They make 3 crusts (so, 1 double crust pie and 1 single crust pie). I made a pear pie with the single crust, and it came out perfectly. I made a steak n ale pie with the double and YUM.

Quick and Easy Yorkshire Pudding

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2013
I used 4 eggs instead of 3 (was taught to do equal parts milk, flour, and egg, and 1 cup ended up being 4 eggs). Otherwise, I followed this recipe exactly and they came out great. Served them with the Roast with Gravy (which has coffee as a "secret ingredient"). Was a huge success!

Gingerbread Men Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2014
First time making gingerbread men and they came out great. I added 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves but otherwise followed the recipe as written. For timing - I baked until their little feet were set, then let them cool on the baking sheet until it was cool enough to handle before tranferring them to cooling racks to cool completely. Decorated them once they were completely cool with royal icing.
