Cherry Limeade I

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2004
Very tart and refreshing. Was too sweet / tart for multiple glasses on hot summer day. Next time, I'll add the suggested 2nd bottle of lemon lime soda to make it more drinkable when you want more than one glass. Everyone at the picnic loved this.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
A new family staple. My husband wishes I'd make this every week. They freeze well if you wrap each in foil and then can be taken for lunch at work and reheated in the microwave. The only change I've made after making this many times is that I substitute fat free refried beans for the kidney beans and use one can of black beans (unmashed). It just saves so much time since I don't have a large food processor any more and I really can't tell any difference in the taste and I'm all about the easy time saving shortcuts. Try this one. . . you won't be sorry!

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Nothing about this I don't like. Delicious hot or cold, in a burrito or as a side dish. Everyone who has had it wants the recipe, including those who have never eaten quinoa and don't know what it is. I have found that in recipes like this one, I prefer cooking the quinoa in a rice cooker and then adding it to the other ingrediants. The only other change I made was that I used one can of black beans and one of black eyed peas because that's what I had on hand.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
Not much I can add to the raves here. I used light coconut milk and the taste was awesome; restaurant quality for sure. I had no trouble with it thickening up at all cooking it uncovered for 40-50 minutes. Flavorful, fragrant, sauce, tender chicken, just a wonderful combonation of tastes. I served over jasmine rice that had been cooked in chicken broth and white wine and the was as good as a similar dish in one of the best Indian restaurants I've eaten. I did end up adding more curry (can't say how much, just added a little and tasted and repeated until it was the way I wanted it) after tasting the sauce with the tines of a fork about 20 minutes into cooking it. I did as Stephanie suggested and cooked the curry and oil for more like 10 minutes to release all of the flavor and I used diced onion instead of slices. My 3 year old loved it as well. Beautiful dish as well! Thanks for sharing Roma!

Hamburger Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Really quite good. I second everyone who said they were apprehensive about all of the onion because I was. After I had already done so, I realized I had added the two larger onion soup packs and worried. But no worries -- NOT too onion-ly. I did brown the chopped onion because my husband HATES to find crunchy onion in anything. Other than that, the only change was that I added about a cup on quinoa to the soup to up the nutritional value. It was really good, my kids liked it too. I did find that after stored in the frige the broth got soaked up and the soup became more stewish, but still good. My husband added some hot sauce to his, but I found it hearty and flavorful. Great way to get the veggies in everyone!

Raspberry Walnut Baked Brie

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
I made this last night for wine club and it was gone in 10 minutes, despite the fact that I doubled this recipe! I also made the parmesean fondue from this site and while I thought that was awesome when I made it, once I took a bite of this, the winner was clear. I did use pecans since that is what I had on hand, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly (other than baking longer to get brown, since I had a larger quantity). The texture was awesome, the raspberry and nuts added a really interesting taste combination. The three flavors worked well . . . the brie didn't overpower the other two flavors as it sometimes can. I did use homemade raspberry jam which can also overpower other flavors since it is so fresh tasting. I served these with sliced baguettes and crackers and I think it went well with both, although most people seemed to prefer the crackers. I plan on making this again in days. This one's a WINNER!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2008
All I can say is WOW! These are just as good as the ones I love at PF Changs. I had a few changes only because the store did not stock a few of the items or was out. I can only imagine how out-of-this-world great this will be with everything in it. Cooking hint: while the meat is cooking, get the garlic, ginger, soy sauce, hoisin sauce, vinegar and chili in a mixing bowl and ready to add to the onion mixture at the right time since it is a lot to add to a hot pan quickly. Changes: I used ground turkey as it was 9 pm when I shopped and the store was out of ground beef. I omitted the pickled ginger and rice wine vinegar since the store did not stock these. I did add ground ginger to taste since I love ginger and didn't want to miss that flavor. I omitted the chile pepper sauce since I don't like spicy. Even with all of these omimssions, the flavor from the meat mixture was amazing. My husband, when I passed a tasting spoon to him, said that he almost didn't want to swallow it because he wanted to savor the intense and complex flavor of it. I will absolutely make this again and again and will head out to a more diverse market to get all of the missing pieces.

Mexican Casserole

Reviewed: May 3, 2010
now a family staple as my girls love tacos and I am always looking for a way to use seasoned meat just to add variety. After making it as is, I now throw a pile of cilantro, more tomato and taco fixings to make this a taco in a pan. Perfect for packing for my lunch, too

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2007
What more can I add? This soup was rich and creamy. This tasted like something in a restaurant. Nice ham taste, even with the chicken broth, and the creamy broth was wonderful. I was trying to use up leftover Christmas ham. This was my first time making this and I usually follow to a "T" the first time, but I followed a couple of suggestions on reviews: I used 3 cups of chicken broth because I only had that size container, no boullion; I added a couple of shakes of seasoning (I used Monteral Chicken seasoning); I added a very small amount of cheese (velveeta - I needed to use before it went out of date - I wasn't aware that "cheese food" went out of date!) to the flour/butter mix to "cream" it a little more. I did saute the onions and carrots since that's how I like onions cooked when making soup. I WILL MAKE AGAIN when I have ham that needs to be used up.

Green Punch

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
The kids loved this one and the grown ups did too. Bright green (think Shrek) punch that tastes good and is easy to make. This was perfect at my Halloween party with floating ice hands. I left out ALL of the added sugar and it was still very sweet. I hardly ever drink juice, but I can't imagine this being any sweeter and being drinkable. Leave it out! Several parents asked for the recipie and I told them that I had left sugar out and they all agreed that any more sugar would ruin it. I had about 16 kids (most were in the 5-7 age range) and at least one parent per kid and this made enough for all and I have about 1 1/2 quarts left. Good punch!

Fantastic salad. I added a little more jam to the dressing than called for, but it is easy to taste and adjust. Love it!

Glazed Meatloaf II

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2006
I'm not a huge meatloaf fan, but had a sudden pregnancy craving for some. This is a great and easy recipe. It's not just the hormones talking, my husband and picky 5 year old loved it too. The only change I made was accidental. . . I thought I had lemons but didn't so substituted the same amount of lime juice to keep the tart addition. I'm sure the lemon juice keeps the same great flavor. Another added bonus is that this recipe is KID FRIENDLY. My five year old could help stir the sauce and pat the formed loaf with a spoon. She loved making this.

Sugar Cookie Glaze

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
Perfect texture, high shine and color that adjusts easily with food coloring. Used this to let 4 year olds paint sugar cookies with paintbrushes. They loved it! Stays moist long enough to add sprinkles but dries quickly enough to pack up when it's time to split up the cookies painted and go home. Great taste and texture, not crumbly or crackly. Adheres to cookie just right. I've used lots of glazes, this is THE ONE.

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2006
WONDERFUL! I've made chocolate fudge for years. My husband asked for a peanut butter recipe last week so I tried this one. So easy! I used crunchy peanut butter (that's all I had) and some dark brown and some light brown sugar (that's all I had). It was perfect. You would never guess how easy this was once you tasted it.

Down Home Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
Not as gooey cheesy as some I've made, in a good way! I liked the semi crunchy topping. A good mac and cheese, a little more grown up than most that are just fresh cheese versions of the mac and cheese sauce in a box. Drier cheese texture, but not dry.

Aussie Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2005
Very nice Some notes on my first attempt at cooking. I didn't bother trying to measure out the seasoned salt. . . as I trimmed and pounded the chicken I just salted each piece. I also used onion powder in the mustard sauce since I didn't have onion flakes and I thought the sauce was great. I also left out the parsley. I served this at a dinner for another couple with kids. Everyone, including some very picky kids (5 and under) gobbled up this chicken. The honey mustard sauce tasted just like the sauce at a local restaurant that is famous for its honey mustard sauce. Subtle, sweet but not too much, mustardy but not overpowering. It kept the chicken moist. I had the extra sauce on the table but everyone like the amount cooked on the chicken just fine. I also use the precooked bacon zapped in the microwave to make this easier. I will cook again and just loved it.

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
Reading the recipe, I couldn't imagine how it could possibly be as fantastic as the review say. It looks too easy. There aren't may things in it. Well, I've got to agree that this is 100% an example of the sum being more than the parts. I made this three times the first week. This is just great! Everyone at the party I tried it out on loved it and wanted more. I made enough for 4 times the number of people there and there was NOTHING left. You won't be disappointed. I did leave out the sugar and used blueberries instead of raspberries, but I did use raspberry jam for that taste. I also used apple slices that I'd frozen from last apple season so I did have to drain some sauce off to keep it from being too wet. I think the frosty apples were easier to chop and made the salsa nice and cool, great for summer! My 5 year old loved the chips all by themselves.

Chocolate Spiders

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
Make sure you have enough of the chocolate coating as it will be hard to make these stick together if it isn't "wet" enough. Also, you can pop the mix in the microwave if the chocolate starts drying too much as you make the spiders. I used butterscotch chips (point side down) for the eyes. My daughter said that they looked like spiders or mummy-babies, and I think if you used white chocolate coating, it would really look like a mummy head (I'd use chocolate chips for eyes with that one). Very easy and popular.
