Warm Dijon Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2015
I substituted a large shallot in place of the green onion and red onion (that's what I had on hand) and reduced the red pepper a bit. This was so good! Also added about 1T dried parsley.

Autumn Apple Salad II

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2015
What a great recipe! I took some liberties based on what I had. Gala apples, sunflower seeds and fresh blueberries. Sprinkled with cinnamon. Kids thought we were having dessert after lunch!

Molly's Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2014
I made this exactly as written, and it's a keeper. Perfect for a simple weeknight meal. My husband said to put it on the rotation, so it must be good. Next time I will use a lower sodium soy sauce, but even as is, it's good. Thank you for a great meal made with pantry staples!

Broccoli Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2014
This really tasty and super easy! The only reason that I gave it 4 stars and not 5 is because after making it, I felt it was missing something. I added 1/8 cup grated parmesan and a sprinkle of cayenne (I halved the recipe so next time when I make the full recipe I will add 1/4 to 1/3 cup parm) and this took it to a 5 star recipe. Thanks! Can't wait for that family to try it. Also, omitted the nutmeg due to personal taste.

Easy Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2014
I reduce the temperature to 350 because I am baking in a convection oven and 9 minutes is perfect. I add 1/4 t almond extract and sometimes substitute lemon extract for the vanilla. This is a perfect cookie the way it is written, but also to play with.

Butter Frosting

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2014
This was perfect. I used about 4 cups of sugar and it was the perfect consistency for piping. I also added 1t cinnamon for chocolate mocha cupcakes with cinnamon buttercream frosting. UPDATE: when I served my cupcakes directly out of the refrigerator, the icing was very dense. In my experience, it's best to pull it out about an hour before serving and allow it to soften a bit.

Ragin' Cajun Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2014
I did take some liberties with his recipe based on what I had. Used chicken thighs, canned tomato, left out the shrimp and subbed sherry for the white wine. It was very good though! Next time I will definitely use the shrimp, but I will leave out the broccoli (kids and I liked it, but hubby didn't.). This would also be tasty over rice or orzo. Thanks for a great recipe!

Raspberry Lemon Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2014
These were really good. I used fresh blueberries, and substituted sour cream for the plain yogurt. Instead of topping with white sugar before baking, I made a glaze from lemon juice, milk vanilla and powdered sugar.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2014
I haven't even finished baking the batch and I'm already writing a review. These are exactly what I have been looking for! A nice chewy oatmeal cookie. I can't stand a cakey cookie and these are perfect. The only thing I changed was to add 3/4 cup of raisins and 1/2 of walnuts. Otherwise, perfect. For my notes: reduce temperature to 350 when using convection.

Apple Hermits

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2013
These are very good. I substituted butterscotch chips for the raisins and didn't make the glaze. I shredded the apples and left out nutmeg and cloves. These seem to work better with a small scoop rather than the large. Edit: changed this from 5 to 4... The flavor is good, but the presentation isn't that great. They spread quite a bit and don't really hold their shape.

Blonde Brownies I

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2013
I've made this many times and I have found that I like the chocolate chips mixed in the best. Otherwise perfect. 1/2 cup was plenty for us and when I double the recipe, 3/4 c was perfect.
