Omelet in a Mug

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
Recipe is great as is, however, for even faster meal, omit bell pepper and ham, cook egg then stir in cheese when finished cooking.

Panna Cotta

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2012
There are lots of recipes for panna cotta but so far this is the easiest and the best! I loved the simple directions and it came out just as I expected. Trader Joe's discontinued their 2 pack of panna cotta dessert with frozen blueberry and peach sauce on top. Now with this recipe, I can make something similar very easily!!!!

Healthier White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
I didn't make the crust as stated. Used 2 - 8" graham cracker crusts as I didn't want to take the time to make my own crust. I used fresh black berries instead of rasberries as that is what I had. Still came out great - restaurant quality taste. I wasn't so great at layering the berry sauce or making pretty designs in the cake (I"ll have to practice) but the cake(s) set nicely and didn't burn, at 325F for an hour, even without the water bath.

Fruit Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
I made this recipe as stated, it came out like a hot cross bun in loaf form (and without the icing.) For a recipe with almost no sugar, used pantry staples like dried milk and used no eggs and really easy to make - I thought it was great. I used the bread maker for the dough but used the oven to bake it. I am not sure I added the vital wheat gluten, as I probably didn't have any. Next time, I might add a teaspoon of vanilla. A decent holiday bread.

Garbanzo Extravaganzo

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2011
Good, simple, budget friendly, healthy recipe. I usually swap out Balsamic vinegar for fresh lemon juice, a pinch of cayenne and/or cumin and definitely add garlic to add an extra layer of flavors. I don't add Adobo to this cold salad.

Spicy Bean with Bacon Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
Used two small poblano peppers instead of all the jalpeno peppers and it was just the right spice. Added more carrot and a few small stalks of celery and fresh tomatoes instead of canned sauce as I had produce to use up, same with real garlic rather than powdered - all but the youngest child ate it up - even though the veggies were pureed so he couldn't "find" them to pick them out.

Crispy Eggplant with Spicy Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2011
I've never tried making anything like Eggplant Parm. before but liked that this was baked not fried and came out great. I think I used a mix of wheat germ and ground flax seed as the breading - it gave the dish a slightly nutty taste, which I liked - kudos - good and healthy recipe!

Citrus Wild Blueberry Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2011
I've made this at least four times as it's a quick and easy recipe to master. I like the consistency and the flavor of the sauce - not too thin or runny, yet not so thick I can't pour it on pancakes or spoon over Panna Cotta. I prefer this to store bought as it is not overly sweet and I know what ingredients are in it. Just use a little more sweetener, like a a few more tablespoons, if the blueberries are sour(taste them first) or do ALL orange juice - instead of 1/4 cup of water and 1/2 cup orange juice - do 3/4 cup orange juice. If the sauce is too thin use more thickener (cornstarch) and/or cook it a little longer. Most times the sauce thickens pretty well on its own in the fridge, however, if it's too thick - use less thickener and/or less frozen blueberries (thaw and drain) next time. Same with the lemon flavor being overpowering - use a little less. It's a fairly forgiving recipe. Experiment and make the recipe your own. Thanks you Bri bri for the recipe - it's become a family favorite.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
Best pita/flatbread/pizza dough recipe yet that I've tried on allrecipes. Came out crispy with air pockets on the first try. I like that the recipe utilizes the oven rather than an (iron) skillet as not limited by pan as to what and how many made - less chance to burn myself too!

Bruschetta al Pomodoro

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2011
Simple easy go-to recipe, especially if omit or substitute some of the seasonings, like Italian herbs for basil and oregano or leave out crushed red pepper to be more kid/teen friendly.

Chocolate Chip Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
My brownies were baked in a glass pan so I had to cook then for 8 more minutes than listed for a uniform doneness. I liked that the ingredients seemed pretty healthy - whole wheat, cocoa powder and I added crushed walnuts too. These are cakey brownies, perhaps it's the milk in the recipe, however, my family prefers a gooey brownie with a bit of crust on the outer edges and crusty top. So not my favorite type but decent enough chocolatey flavored brownies.

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2011
I love this recipe - it makes uniformly good spanakopita every time. I've varied the recipe depending on what's on hand, substituting cottage cheese for ricotta and using oregano, basil, nutmeg, red pepper. Sometimes I like adding sliced mushrooms too. After a friend explained filo can be forgiving - don't butter/oil every sheet, just every few sheets and don't have to be exact for number of sheets, just be quick working with it before it dries out- I've been comfortable working with it.

Easy Chicken Posole

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
Great flavor and pretty easy to make. Loved it. Only change was to add a little cumin (antioxidant). Posole is a great version of chicken soup or broth, similar to what Vietnamese pho is for beef broth. Adding the garnishes at the end: lime, onion, radish and fresh chopped cilantro makes the soup flavor pop, so don't skip or leave them out!

Sweet and Spicy Popcorn

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
I put the spice mix in a shaker, air popped corn in a big bowl and spray mist the popcorn with olive oil then shake the spices over it and repeat - works great and not too decadent a snack for the whole family on movie night! Love the sweet, salty, slight underlying warmth flavor - good on roast nuts too.

Chocolate Eclair Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
Family friendly fast & easy dessert made with ingredients on hand. Only change made, Instead of frozen whipped topping, I use 8 ounces real whipping cream added after the milk, prior to mixing with a beater - still comes out like a mousse.

Walnut Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Came out a little gooey but tasted good, and held together. It was sweet but not overly so. Good lower carb option. Complemented the Sweet Potato Pie VII from this site and would make a good Thanksgiving dish.

Pico de Gallo Chicken Quesadillas

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
Made this twice so far - really great flavor both times. Used the oven method both times (375 for 20 minus. per other reviewers.) The lime juice makes the dish - as the second time used commercial fresh salsa with cut up chunks of tomato, green pepper, onion... and just added the juice of one lime to onions peppers and chicken - still really great!

Fresh Fruit Flan

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2010
No matter what the name - the basic recipe is very flexible - making it easy to swap out or switch out ingredients or parts like the crust. Despite a rather long list of ingredients you can make a respectable dessert quickly with substitutions. I've tried it as written, with a graham cracker crust from the store (quick but crust can get soggy), with different fruit choices, adding lemon juice and zest to the filling instead of vanilla, and with jam or jelly and water microwaved a few minutes for a glaze. Every time I make the dessert it's never quite the same as it depends on time available and the ingredients on hand. It is very good summer dessert when fresh fruit is abundant.
