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!

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!

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.

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.

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.

Stir Fried Kale

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
As written... I didn't care for the flavor. Added parmesan cheese, that helped. But I'll keep looking for a way to use kale.

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.

Creamy Herbed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2015
It was pretty good. The Montreal steak seasoning made for an odd, spicy gravy.

Costas French Market Doughnuts (Beignets)

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2015
Yum! perfect easy donut substitute. I did have problems keeping the oil the right temp; it started too hot and they browned too fast without puffing up. Better to err on the side of too cold and let them cook a bit longer. The dough is so easy to make, but it does make a ton! I cut the recipe in half, and one baseball-sized amount made about 18, which was enough for the 6 adults+2 kids brunch I brought them to. I thought they were great as is, but I can see how adding on cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice could make it even better!

The Real Mojito

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2014
Yum! I didn't bother with the simple syrup, just made it according to recipe, and it was delicious! The mint flavor is subtle, not overwhelming like most bar mojitos.

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.

Garlic Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2013
These were really delicious. I only used 1 Tbs butter and about 1 Tbs olive oil. Next time I won't cook the garlic as long before putting in the green beans, the garlic got a little too brown. The melty Parmesan sent it over the top!

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.
