Butter Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2006
I can't believe how great this crust was! I had no problem rolling it, even though I only had it in the fridge for abour 2 1/2 hours! Also I used whole wheat flour. Wonderful! Thank you!

Old Fashioned Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2006
WOW!!! This turned out GREAT! I live at 5K feet, so usually cakes flop and turn out so gross, but I made this just the way the recipe says. I omitted the cinnamon, used whole milk instead of buttermilk, and substituted a "yogurt spread" for the butter. And baked in two 9" rounds for 28 minutes. Turned out GREAT! I added a bit more cocoa powder and it tastes great! I didn't use the frosting, sicne this is for the child I babysit, and his mom is going to decorate the cake for his birthday. Thank you! It's yummy!

Quick Chili II

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
This was great! It was very spicy and tasty. I didn't have any Cajun seasoning, so I just used some salt and grill seasoning:) Also used 2 cans of Kidney beans instead of Ranch.

Hot and Tangy Broccoli Beef

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
I loved this! I didn't use any vinegar, mostly becasue I don't like it, and also, I just forgot:) It turned out really tasty. I would add more garlic and red pepper flakes next time. I actually liked how it wasn't super sweet. It's a keeper!

Greek Style Potatoes

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
These were really good. The lemon flavor was a little hard to get used to at first. I made some suggested changes. Added 1/2 t. salt, some dried oregano, used 1 T. fresh rosemary, and 1 T. fresh thyme. I added the bullion to 1/4 cup hot water, cubed the potatoes and left the skin on. Baked about 1.5 hours

Taco Soup VIII

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
This was great! My husband and I both loved it! I added a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies and some fresh cilantro. I didn't have taco seasoning, so I used my own spices. It was fantastic! I'm making it tomorrow for my daughter's birthday party!---I did make it for her party and everyone RAVED about this. Several people took home the recipe too, and they are still talking about it-a year later!! What a hit!

Lemon Rosemary Salmon

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2006
I made this for valentine's day as well, and I DO NOT care for fish AT all, but being from Oregon, my husband loves it. I ate EVERY bite! It was SOOO good! I couldn't believe it! I want more, but it's all gone! It was absolutely wonderful! I had to cook it with the skin on, since we didn't have a sharp enough knife to cut it off, so it was a tiny bit fishy tasting near the bottom, but still, WONDERFUL! I forgot to brush it with the olive oil, like others suggested, I just made it the way the recipe said and it came out PERFECT! I squeezed some fresh lemon juice over mine when I was eating it. I actually had forgotten to, until I was about half way done, it was so good that I was totally distracted! My husband said "PLEASE make this again!". I WILL!! THANK YOU for a great recipe that is SO simple and yummy!

Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2010
This was SO good!!! I marinated for almost 24 hours. If my grill wouldn't have caught the chicken on FIRE it would have been better. But I got some great char marks (haha) and baked it off the rest of the way in the oven. It was so moist and had fantastic flavor! Thank you!

Breadsticks with Parmesan Butter

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
Absolutely fantastic!! I halved the recipe and used a whole egg like another reviewer did. I also followed her advice and added some Italian Seasoning to the dough, then right out of the oven I brushed with melted butter seasoned with Johnny's Garlic Spread (it's powder) and sprinkled parmesan on top....perfect! Oh and I would suggest making the sticks half the size instructed. The ones that I didn't do that to were like loaves of bread!!! But I did let them rest a lot longer:) Thank you!!!

Lemon Poppy Seed Muffins I

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I love LOVE poppy seed muffins! These were great with the modifications suggested. I used 12 oz yogurt (1 lime 1 lemon), 1/8 c poppy seeds, 1/3 c oil. Now, here's where I messed up! Haha, I put the lemon juice in with the yogurt and everything, so I used 1 T lemon extract 1/3 c water and 3 T sugar for the mixture to pour over the tops:) They tasted great! Mine didn't puff up, but maybe it had to do with the altitude? or the fact that I used 1 1/2 c whole wheat flour and 1/2 almond meal instead of white flour:) Thanks for a keeper!

Quick and Easy Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2006
I took the advice of some of the other reviewers and cut back the sugar to 1 1/2 Tablespoons, and I only had olive oil on hand. It didn't rise much, and I thought it was a lot like cornbread, which is fine, just really crumbly. It tasted okay, but not too much flavor. I think it would be really yummy with some garlic or herbs in it. It was very easy though, and fun to make with the kids!

Premium Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2009
I love this crust!! I made it a few weeks ago and it was totally soggy, but that was because all I had was a sheet pan to cook it on:( I bought a pizza screen and put a piece of parchment on it. The crust turned out fantastic, and very thin! Thank you!

Orzo with Chicken and Artichokes

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2008
This is good. I didn't have the pancetta, pine nuts or wine. I added some sun dried tomatoes, and used the water that I soaked them in instead of the wine, I also added a bunch of salt, and some pepper (it was kind of bland without the bacon). Also used 1/2 the orzo like suggested by others. I really like this:) I'm not much of a vinegar person, but it's not overpowering in this dish. Thank you for this fun recipe!
