Amazing Butternut Squash

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2012
After trying too many butternut squash recipes that taste more like desserts than vegetables, this one is a winner. It has a fluffy texture with a nice savory flavor. I only used 1/4 cup mayo, but I'd adjust based on the size of your squash. I also finely minced the onion and used seasoned bread crumbs instead of saltines, which I didn't have. I recommend using freshly grated cheese. I will be making this again.

Maple Kale Crisps

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
Yummy! The only problem is that the directions are a bit vague. Be sure to rub each leaf with oil to evenly crisp during baking. You should do the same with the maple syrup.

Garam Masala Spice Blend

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2012
I love the fragrance of this mixture while you're grinding it. I don't prepare Indian dishes as often as I'd like, but having this blend ready will make it easier.

Salted Caramel Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
The heavy saucepan is a must for this recipe. Follow this recipe exactly as the video instructs and you'll not be sorry. The finished sauce thickens nicely and goes great with apple slices or ice cream. The flavor reminds me of caramel corn from the beach. Wonderful!

Tuna Fish Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
What a great way to use leftover veggies in the fridge! I sauted some fresh kale with the garlic and onions. If I had had fresh mushrooms, I probably would have sauted those in advance as well. The mixture can be a bit wet, so I'd be wary of adding ingredients that give off water.

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2012
Say, that was so easy and so good! Timing is just right for tender salmon. I love the sweetness of the syrup combined with the savoriness of the soy sauce. One reviewer suggested adding a little fresh ginger, which sounds like a good addition. I'll try that next time, but it's perfectly delicious as is.

Classico® Eggplant Parmesan

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2012
Surprisingly good for something so simple. For any basic eggplant recipe, I always recommend that you lightly salt the slices to allow them to sweat out the bitter juices before cooking. Sprinkle both sides of each slice of eggplant with salt and allow to sit for about 10 minutes. Wipe off the liquid with a paper towel before dipping in the egg dip. I used whole grain saltines and freshly grated Romano cheese. Pretty good.

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I didn't think I liked beets, but I've changed my mind after I got some homegrown beets from a friend and found this recipe. I nuked them until soft and then peeled them once they cooled down a bit. The stained fingers are well worth this delicious dish. I will be looking for fresh beets next time at the market!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
Yup, this one's a keeper. I followed a reviewer's suggestion to reduce the butter in the topping and also didn't add any batter. Finished product had a beautiful crunchy top with a soft, sweet muffin underneath. This recipe made 9 regular muffins with overflowing tops. . . Gotta have plenty of muffin top!

Roasted Beets with Feta

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
I didn't think I was much of a beet fan, but I've changed my mind. After getting some fresh beets from a friend, I tried this recipe (microwaving, rather than roasting). Loved it! Quick and pretty easy (but stains your hands temporarily).

Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
Surpringly good! I used balsamic vinegar with great results. After reading other reviews, I baked these at 270 for 20 minutes, or just until crispy. They do shrink quite a bit, but a delicious way to sneak in those leafy greens! Definitely a keeper.

Liver Pate

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
Super smooth and creamy! I followed Dick Rebel's suggestions and didn't overcook the livers. I also finished it with a touch of truffle-infused oil. I didn't have any shallots but used vidalias instead. Delicious!

Sausage Barley Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
After reading the reviews, I decided to use kale instead of spinach, which worked wonderfully. If you want to stick with the spinach, I would only add it during the last few minutes of cooking. The kale can go into the crockpot at the beginning.

Cabbage Sloppy Joes

Reviewed: May 14, 2012
Love that crunch that the cabbage brings! The tanginess goes so well with the cabbage, too. I'll be making this again.

Mom's Prize Winning Raw Apple Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
Delicious cake. I had a cup of sou half- n- half that I wanted to use up, plus I had about 3 cups of diced frozen golden delicious apples (unpeeled). Used both up in this recipe, substituting slices almonds for the walnuts that I didn't have. Came out great. I wouldn't hesitate to make this again.

Creamy Cheesy Grits

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2012
As you would with any grits recipe, you'll need to adjust the liquids to get desired consistency, but the flavor is excellent. Especially like the little kick from the cayenne. Easy to make. I'll definitely be making this again.

Ciabatta

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
Made it exactly as written (excepted baked on a Silpat slid onto a baking stone). If you're used to handling "normal" yeast dough, this is a little tricky to deal with since it's not kneaded to an elastic state. Use flour generously. Whatever you do, do NOT skimp on the salt. The salt is what makes this dough manageable, such as it is. You'll have a huge gooey mess if you don't add enough salt. You will love the results! Reminds me a bit of those fresh Tuscan loaves from Italy!

Food Processor Chocolate Whipped Cream Frosting

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2012
Made it exactly as written, but doubled. It's the perfect frosting for my chocolate raspberry cake. The family loved it. I especially loved how quick and easy it is to put together. I recommend that you chill the cake, along with the mixing bowl and beaters.
