Pie Crust IV

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
I made this in the food processor. It didn't need much water at all, so I think I ended up adding too much. I put it in the fridge to firm up a bit before using. I used it on a chicken pot pie, so those flavors made it difficult to taste the actual crust, but I think it was fine. I will try it again with a fruit pie.

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2011
I used this basic recipe, and added the dressing from "Mexican Bean Salad." Love it!

Sausage con Queso Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Really good. I browned my sausage, then dumped everything into a Crockpot. I put it on low & left it overnight. I don't recommend this because it burned in some places and didn't fully melt in others---totally my fault though. My friend had made it for an event & I so I decided to steal the recipe from her. Super simple. Tastey.

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2011
Pretty good, though not spectacular. I dislike dragging out a ton of spices, especially if the end product isn't fabulous. This was pretty good, though not spectacular. I prefer to use s&p and rosemary, or the onion soup mix.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2011
Delicious! I didn't change a thing, which is unusual for me. I did use a 3.5 qt container, which turned out great because there were more chewy, caramel-y bits. Will be making again soon, and will probably through in some raspberries for tartness. This will be my go-to cobbler recipe from now on!

Antipasto Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2011
With all the goodies in this salad, it has to taste great! I think without them, the salad would be lacking in flavor. I was looking for a recipe that would still taste good w/o relying all the meats, cheeses and veg for all the flavor. I thought the packet of dry dressing mix might do the trick, but it fell a little short. I just can't seem to find a recipe that tastes like the one from the grocery store. I'll keep looking.

Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2011
I like to use Arnold Health Nut bread for crunchiness, 1.5 slices of Velveeta for creaminess, 4 slices of cooked bacon for saltiness, and lots of sliced tomato for a touch of sweetness. I really enjoy reading everyone's variations! Gonna have to make one tomorrow.

Mojo Roast Chicken (Pollo Asado)

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2011
Used chicken breasts, cut into hunks for kabobs. Marinated 4-6 hours then grilled on my grill pan indoors. Chicken was juicy and good, but I wasn't wow'd.

Strawberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
This is a fun way to sneak in some more whole grains. I blended the oats first, till they were powdery. It is definitely pastey consistency, but I don't mind it. I used regular milk and frozen bananas. Tried it without the sugar, but ended up needing it. It's a great starting point for other fun creations!

Heavenly Angel Food Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2011
Absolutely delicious by itself! Made exactly and had no problem. I even got a little bit of yellow in with my whites & they still beat up beautifully. Now to find something to do with all the left over yolks.

A Very Intense Fruit Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2011
This was pretty sweet for my taste. Next time I will omit the honey and canned fruit. I will use mixed berries and orange juice. It is a thick smoothie that can be eaten with a spoon, making it seem like an indulgent dessert!

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Amazing that corn and beans can taste this good! I always add tomatoes and tons more cilantro. Sometimes I'll top it with a little bit of avocado. Very pretty and travels well!

Sean's Falafel and Cucumber Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2011
REALLY good, but I have nothing to compare them to since I'd never had falafel before =) Had them on a whole wheat pita, with Chili-Lime Chicken from this site. Looking forward to having it for leftovers. Kind of reminded me of a veggie burger, but more moist. Will definitely go in the dinner rotation. (Only fried them in a spritz of olive oil.)

Baked Kale Chips

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
This is similar to the way I like to prepare broccoli. It totally changes the flavor. I really like the crunchy texture bc it leaves me feeling satisfied. I don't enjoy dragging out the salad spinner, so next time I think I'll towel dry it. Some leaves may still be a little wet when it's done cooking, but if you let it continue to sit on the cookie sheet, it will evaporate off. I topped mine with Seasoned Salt. Fun way to eat your veggies!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I used this recipe as inspiration. It's hard to follow it as written when there are so many good suggestions! I used 1/2 cup white and 1/2 cup brown sugar. I added a dash of salt and splash of vanilla. I used one egg yolk added to the wet ingredients. I whipped 2 egg whites separately and then folded those into the heavier ingredients. It yielded 2 1/2 dozen cookies that were thin and chewy. Had to increase the cook time to 13 minutes and then let cool fully on the sheet. They were well received by a gluten-free friend.

Evelyn's Rolled Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2010
The dough was only slightly thicker than a muffin batter, even after being refrigerated. The cookies distorted as I tried to place them on the cookie sheets. I added vanilla and decorated with sugar, but they were still bland! Sorry. The hunt for lactose free cookies continues...

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2010
It's amazing how these few ingredients combine to make something so delicious! I use spicy sausage in mine. They free well after being cooked. Highly recommend! And no, you don't need to add any liquid.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
Took these to a work holiday party, mostly bc I wanted to give them another shot. I'm not a sprouts fan, but maybe I just haven't tried them the right way. They sure stunk up my house, and they're still not my favorite, but they were better than other times I tried them. And I didn't bring home any leftovers, so other people must have liked them!
