Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2012
I made this to take to a pot luck last Sunday, and am just getting around to writing this review. This cake was SO delicious! Fortunately, we arrived at the pot luck a little late, and everyone had already eaten! Oh well, that just meant that we got to take 3/4 of the cake home for ourselves! They don't know what they missed! It was moist, just the right amount of chocolate, not too sweet, and downright decadent! I topped it with a chocolate butter cream, which was just perfect! This is one for the recipe box, that's for sure! Thanks for sharing!

Watermelon Agua Fresca

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2012
Just mixed up a batch of this in my Vitamix. Added a little rum to mine & Hubs, for a refreshing adult beverage at the end of a hard days work. I didn't add as much mint as called for (only about 6 large leaves), which was good, as we don't like too much mint in our drinks. I also just squeezed the juice of 2 limes right into the blender. Nice, refreshing, tasty beverage. Thanks for sharing!

Cajun Chicken Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
We really liked this. I had no idea what I was going to make for dinner. I opened the frig and saw that the only meat I had thawed out was some of those already cooked grilled chicken strips (which I had bought intending to use on top of a salad) . . . somehow I stumbled upon this recipe, and I had MOST of the ingredients in my frig in one form or another to throw this together quickly for my hungry family. I used red, yellow & orange peppers that I had grilled and frozen. I only had about 1/2 of a cup of cream on hand, so I just threw in some skim milk until I had the right amount of sauce. I also used fresh basil (which I have so much of right now). Everyone really liked it. My son was having a friend sleep over, and he had dinner with us and he kept saying how good it was. I literally had this together in 20 minutes. Now that's a quick weeknight dinner! Served it with some crusty bread - yum!

Magic Peanut Butter Middles

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2012
Just made these, and they are very tasty . . . especially if you like chocolate and peanut butter together! I read a few reviews, and made a few adjustments based on that. I added about 2 Tblsp. of sour cream to the chocolate mixture, so it wouldn't crumble so much. Good call. I used my small cookie scoop and scooped all of the chocolate part onto a piece of waxed paper (so I could see how many I was going to get). I got 26. I did cut back on the filling ingredients to 2/3 cup of each (peanut butter & powdered sugar), as many others said they had filling left over. Good call. Then I used a teaspoon, and divided the filling into 26 equal size balls. Perfect - no leftovers! Then my daughter and I assembled them, patting the chocolate ball into the palm of our floured hands, flattening to a circle. Place the filling in the middle, and pinch the edges up and around the filling, placed them pinch side down on cookie sheets lined with a silicone mat. Baked for exactly 9 minutes. Yum!

Wilted Spinach and Almond Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2012
Excellent salad! I didn't measure my spinach, I just used a 9oz. bag, as that is what I had on hand. I think next time I will cut back on the dressing part, maybe by 1/3, as I had a bit too much dressing to spinach ratio. All in all, hubby and I enjoyed this very much. Another one for the "do again" folder! Thanks!

Easy Curried Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
We really enjoyed this. I did not use any beans, but I did add about 3/4 of a can of lite coconut milk, because we wanted some kind of sauce with it. We served it over white rice. I also didn't have any ground coriander see, so I just added some chopped cilantro on top before serving. Delicious. Even the kids liked it!

Blueberry Cream Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
These were very good. Not too sweet, but very moist from the sour cream. Thanks!

Amish Slaw

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
I made this on a Friday, to serve at a Sunday night BBQ. I'm so glad that it was something that I could prepare ahead of time, and get out of the way so I could concentrate on the rest of the meal. Everyone really enjoyed this slaw. Our guests asked for the recipe, and it made quite a bit (there were 8 of us, and I had enough left over for another meal for my family of 4 AND to send out guests home with some as well). I did add some shredded carrots, for color. Nice recipe. Thanks for sharing.

Indian Dahl with Spinach

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2012
We really enjoyed this. I only had about 1 cup of lentils and a 9oz. bag of baby spinach, so that's what I used. I added enough water to cover the lentils by about 1 inch, and then added 1 cube of vegetable bouillon to the water, as recommended by others. I followed the recipe for everything else. This had nice Indian flavors, and we served ours over rice. A nice, healthy, meatless meal. Hubs loved it! Thanks for sharing.

Baked Oatmeal II

Reviewed: May 13, 2012
I made a few changes to make this recipe Weight Watcher's friendly . . . First, I only made 1/2 recipe (4 servings). I cut the brown sugar down to 1/4 cup, used skim milk, and substituted apple sauce for the butter. Even with these changes, it was delicious! Weight Watchers Points Plus = 6 per serving. Not bad!

Bird Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2012
I made these for Easter this year, and they turned out adorable! I baked them earlier in the day, and wished that I could have timed it so that they came out of the oven shortly before we ate, but it didn't work out that way. They were a little dry, I think from sitting out for a few hours. I also had to add quite a bit of extra flower to be able to handle the dough. I love the creativity of the shape, and might try this with another dough recipe in the future. Everyone that has seen the photo that I took has asked for the recipe! They are just too cute!

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
I had some left over broccoli to use up, and this recipe fit the bill! Cut it down to 4 servings and followed the recipe loosely. My broccoli had been sauteed with roasted peppers and garlic, which really enhanced the soup as well, I believe. Hubs said to make THIS one again, and not mess with trying others. Will do!

Grocery Store Frosting

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2012
Loved it. Made half a recipe, and it was enough to frost 12 cupcakes and about 30 mini cupcakes with some left over. I used a bit more butter than called for in the half recipe, which was a good call. Beat this for a good 12 minutes in my Kitchen Aid, and it was nice and fluffy/creamy. Will use again. Thanks!

Broccoli with Roasted Red Peppers

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
We really enjoyed this. Something different than the same old boiled broccoli. The garlic and peppers really enhance the flavor. Thanks!

Grilled Salmon II

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
This was really tasty. I followed the recipe pretty loosely (used fresh grated ginger in place of ground; left out the peanut oil, because I didn't have any). Overall, the Asian flavors came through without overpowering the taste of the salmon. This kids loved this too. Will make again. Thanks.

Apple Crisp Cups

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
The Bunco ladies LOVED these. I did mix the crust mixture in my food processor, adding the oatmeal last and only pulsing 2 times after adding the oatmeal. These were kinds of putsy shaping the tartlets - but well worth it after all of the compliments. I added a drizzle of caramel on top - which was a nice added touch. Two people asked me to print out the recipe before leaving. Will make again. Thanks.

Sausage Flowers

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2012
The Bunco ladies enjoyed these last night! I did pre-bake the wonton wrappers for about 8 minutes earlier in the day to make prep time easier. Also took the advice of another reviewer and pulsed the sausage in my food processor a couple of times, just to get an even crumble. I also mixed the sausage, salsa & cheese earlier in the day - then just popped it in the micro for a couple of minutes, filled the shells and re-heated for about 6 minutes, just to re-warm the shells. I got 34 out of this recipe instead of 24 - just a heads up for others. Nice appetizer, and will make again. Thanks.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2012
Delicious! I followed "Georgia's" advice, and used 1c. white sugar, 1/2 c brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 tsp cinnamon, and subbed applesauce for the oil (which worked great). This made 2 nice 7" x 4" loaves, which I baked for about 65 min. at 325. So moist . . . I just love it. This will be my go to banana bread recipe whenever I have buttermilk on hand! Thanks.
