Cheddar and Roasted Garlic Biscuits

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2009
Easy and tasty! I used Bisquick, and I only had regular chicken broth so I added a couple cloves of minced garlic.

Cauliflower Gratin

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
I'm not a fan of cauliflower, and this was a great way to dress it up! It actually tasted very similar to potatoes au gratin. I had to sub mozzarella for the Swiss and bacon bits for real bacon; I hope to try it sometime with the right ingredients.

Grilled Peaches with Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Yum... used my indoor grill, vanilla bean ice cream, and Big Soft Ginger Cookies from this site. Delicious combo - warm peaches, cold ice cream, and chunks of cookie!

Prosciutto-Wrapped Scallops

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2012
This was ok; we made as directed but cooked on the grill instead of in the oven. The flavors of tomato and basil came through strongly, but didn't really work with the prosciutto. And if I'm going to buy scallops, I'd prefer a recipe that really lets the scallop flavor shine instead of masking it with other things. So I won't make this again.

Garlic Asparagus with Lime

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
Pretty good. I didn't have shallot or onion, and I just tossed the garlic and asparagus into the butter/olive oil mixture at the same time. My garlic got a little burned before the asparagus was done. I added dried minced onion near the end, finished with the salt/pepper and lime juice, and topped with toasted cashews. I like the pan-fried asparagus taste, so some version of this will definitely go into my regular rotation.

Glazed Apple Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2011
These are delicious and cake-y. I used half butter/half shortening and left out the raisins. I forgot the milk in the batter; I drizzled some in for the very last tray. The ones without milk taste the same, but they didn't rise at all. The ones with milk look exactly like the photo! I also made my glaze fairly runny so I could just dollop it on instead of spreading. I'd definitely make them again.

Carrots in Dill Butter

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2011
Very tasty... I'm not usually a fan of cooked carrots, but the butter+dill really meshed perfectly. Not all of the water was absorbed by the time the carrots were done, but it didn't seem to affect the taste.

Herbed Vinegars

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
So simple and fantastic! I don't go through it very quickly, so I've only made it with rosemary so far. Great as a salad dressing (especially for a Greek-style salad with feta and black olives over spinach!), I've even used it as a marinade for leftover steak/pork.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2014
It might not be fair to rate given the number of mods I made... but this recipe was a great base to start from. The end result was a moist, delicious muffin with banana flavor, great crumb, and crunch on top. Changes to the batter: canola oil instead of melted butter, add 1 tsp vanilla, use 1/4 c brown sugar and 1/2 c white, add 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg to the dry ingredients. For the topping I just used finely chopped pecans and granola, which toasted beautifully in the oven. Next time I'll press the topping down into the batter a little, it didn't sink in by itself so it falls off when you pick up the muffin. Thanks so much for the ideas!

Jalapeno Margaritas

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
Not bad! Next time I'd muddle the jalapeno a bit to get more of the spicy flavor. Also I didn't have agave nectar, so I subbed Rose's sweetened lime juice; but I think it'd be better with the agave nectar+lime juice. It's definitely a strong margarita!

Refreshing Watermelon Salad from ATHENOS

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
This is a really unique and tasty simple salad. I used straight balsamic vinegar since I didn't have a vinaigrette dressing, and it was good, not overpowering at all. It was pretty popular at our BBQ.

Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2012
Delicious! My first time making candied nuts, next time I'll start melting the sugar and then toss the nuts in, instead of adding them at the same time. I had problems with clumps of sugar sticking to the nuts and not melting. And this salad doesn't keep well, so you should put it all together within an hour of serving and be prepared to toss it after a few hours out.

Pollo Fajitas

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
I wasn't sure about the ingredients, but this was actually quite good. I was missing some flavor, but I think that's mostly because I should have let it marinate longer than 30 minutes, and I forgot the lemon juice at the end. I'll try those next time, and that may tip it from pretty good to great. I used 1 lb chicken and removed from skillet to cook the veggies (1 red+1 green pepper + 1 onion), and tossed the chicken back in at the end - the amount of sauce was perfect.

Pumpkin Bean Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2012
This is really yummy! I followed the recipe exactly, using sour cream as the garnish, and I found the spices just right. I definitely recommend adding the sour cream, it's the perfect extra flavor.

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
These were ok. I used 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs, I guess that's not the same as soft bread crumbs? It was way too much breading even for 3 chops, and the parmesan/sage didn't come through. In the end it was more like a chicken-fried steak, and it could have used some gravy. Also took about 20 mins to cook. At least it was nice and moist!

Acorn Squash with Apple

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
Thanks for the tip on peeling the squash! Worked like a charm, except for the tail of the squash which refused to stay underwater. As for the recipe, it was ok, sweet more like a dessert than a side. And it actually tasted much better the next day, after the flavors had melded more. Right out of the microwave it tasted strongly like squash, with little apple flavor.

Spruced Up Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
As written, pretty bland. I spiced it up with plenty of Lawry's seasoning, extra black pepper, and some sour cream - after that it was tasty.

Valentino's Pizza Crust

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
I was looking for a quick pizza crust, but I'll keep looking. This was super sticky, hard to handle, and it tasted like biscuits - hardened crust on the bottom (but didn't get crispy) and fluffy on top. Not good for pizza.

Beets

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
I followed the recipe except I used fresh roasted beets. It was ok, but it mostly tasted like beets, not apple.
