Caprese Quiche

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2013
This quiche turned out a bit dry for me, despite adding a quarter cup of whole milk and baking for less than the recommended 30-40 minutes. Next time, I'll add a bit more milk and leave the baking time the same. Aside from that, the flavors were great. I stirred in sautéed kale along with the sautéed onions and used feta instead of mozzarella.

Sweet Potato Chili

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
This is a wonderful, easy recipe -- made no changes and it came out great, though the sweet potatoes can get a little mushy (fine by me).

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
These cookies are fantastic. I used the entire 15 oz. can of pumpkin (1 3/4 cups), substituted half the white sugar for brown sugar, and added 1/2 cup of raisins. I left the icing off some -- they taste more like muffin tops without the icing, which in my opinion is totally fine. The icing adds sweetness and transforms them into more of a dessert item. As another user mentioned, don't store these cookies as a sealed container. I left them in an open bag in the fridge to keep the icing from getting gummy, and that helped the cookies from going to much as well.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
These muffins are ok, but lacking in spices and texture. Spices: I add 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and a hint of ginger. I also stir in a tsp of vanilla. Texture: I have never baked them as long as suggested, and still they tend to come out a bit dry. Shorten the baking time to about 25 minutes and check. Next time I make them, I will substitute apple sauce for the vegetable oil in hopes of softer and moister muffins.

Angel Food Cake III

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2013
I made this wonderful cake for a birthday party, and it got great reviews. Very easy to put together! I had never made an Angel Food Cake before, and I was a bit apprehensive, as a past AFC cake made by my mother ended up in pieces on the floor during the upside-down step (became a FALLEN Angel Food cake..). This cake held up, though -- I think the trick is the bake it long enough. I used a non-stick bundt cake pan, so the cake was a bit difficult to remove from the pan. It broke into two pieces, but overall worked out ok. Topped it off with whipped cream and fresh strawberries soaked in sugar.

Mozzarella-Stuffed Pesto Turkey Meatballs

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2013
These meatballs are delicious!!! I had shredded mozzarella, which was slightly more difficult to stuff into the meatballs -- next time I will simply mix it in with everything else. I did omit the milk (for lack of it), but I didn't miss it. The other modification I made (for the sake of simplification) was to pour the marinara sauce directly in the dish I was baking in and turn the oven temp down to 200 for about 10-15 minutes while the pasta was cooking on the stove. It made for one less dish to clean after our delicious meal. I will definitely be making this again.
