Creamy Hot Cocoa

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I combine this recipe with the "Moscow Hot Chocolate" recipe for a GREAT winter warm up. I don't add the half and half, it doesn't need it...you could use fat free half and half if you're as horrified as I am by the fat content...

Moscow Hot Chocolate

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
We used the "Creamy Hot Cocoa" from this website (minus the half and half). Make sure that you remember that a shot is 2 ounces, so you're putting a half a shot of each...some people think a shot is 1oz. Also, make sure your mug is big enough or the booze can be overpowering. The TASTE is out of this world. ;-)

Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2008
I pretty much followed the recipe exactly except that I scaled it down added a bottle of Guiness as some other reviewers suggested. I can see how people might really like this, but the flavor was way too strong for us. We had to put a dollop of sour cream to take the sharp edges off and my daughter tasted it and actually spit it out and almost started crying.

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
We used these as our Thanksgiving potatoes this year. I made them the day of, but made them early in the day so that the flavors had time to mingle. They were very dry, but the flavor was PERFECT with the awesome sausage, apple, and cranberry stuffing, Maple roast turkey and gravy from this site. It topped our layered Thanksgiving leftover Hash wonderfully!

Seven Layer Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I was impressed by the rating and so we had this as our Thanksgiving salad. It was a generous "ok". WAY too many onions (and I like onions). The bacon gave it great flavor which sort of saved it. I won't be making it again.

Homemade Pancake Mix

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2007
I was really excited about this recipe because it used wheat flour and no oil, but I was very disappointed with the taste! I even added a packet of Dr. Oetker vanilla sugar. Maybe next time I will add the blueberries to mask the wheat flour taste.

Cooked Pumpkin

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2007
I was REALLY disappointed. This got such rave reviews that I deviated from my regular routine (cut it in half, place cut side down in non-stick coated dish and bake-SIMPLE). This turned into a project that last ALL afternoon to end in a soggy, time consuming mess! Cutting it into "manageable" pieces was pointless, it took twice as long to cook as the recipe called for, it ended up soaking up all of the water, and since I spent $8 on the organic pumpkins, the chunks are in a ziplock bag in my freezer because I was so tired of messing with it.

Easy Broccoli Quiche

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
I used a frozen pie crust...let's work smarter, not harder, shall we?! I used a steam packet of organic broccoli and just put it on top (still frozen)of the sauteing veggies when they were about half done and put a lid on top to let it steam. I also put a layer of parmesean on the crust before pouring the filling in and it was fabulous and EASY!!

Deep Dish Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2007
Wow, I'm impressed! I chose the "deep dish" brownies because I don't have an 8"X 8" pan and had to use an 8"X 11" dish. I was skeptical about not using baking powder (who's ever heard of such a thing?!), but I did what everyone else suggested and used one stick of butter and no baking powder. They were awesome! They have the perfect chewy edges and super soft center. I think next time I will add some frozen dark sweet cherries. ;)

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
I tweaked the recipe quite a bit to make it a meal, but I LOVED it! My 5 year old didn't care for it, so I think I'll stick with the recipe next time. We used the Trader Joe's fire roasted frozen corn. The amount of beans was good...I didn't think it was too much at all.

Anne's Homemade Chorizo

Reviewed: May 17, 2007
**DO NOT ADD JALAPENO JUICE as another reviewer stated! This will change the flavor completely. Mexican chili powders vary in flavor and spice by brand and variety. For more depth of flavor, MIX the chili powders. I personally used 3 different powders with fabulous results. This is the BEST basic chorizo recipe.

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
I was really rooting for this recipe because it got such great reviews, but it was a disaster for me. The middle didn't cook and I used a tube pan. I had to cover it with tin foil about 15 minutes into cooking time because it was already starting to burn. The brown sugar/buter mixture needs a much longer boiling time because it came out very granular instead of gooey.

Sausage & White Bean Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
This really does have a slow cooked taste and is incredibly fast and easy! I mashed all of the beans and it had the perfect consistency. I hate sausage casings, so I removed them, then browned the sausage before adding it.

Super Moist Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
I have now made this more times than I can count! I am always horrified by the amount of eggs and oil in these breads, so I made some easy substitutions to make it even healthier, but SHHHH, I don't tell anyone when I give it to them! I substitute 1 cup of whole wheat flour for 1 cup of regular flour and put one of those little containers of applesauce (approx. 1/3 cup) in the 1 cup measuring cup before filling it the rest of the way up with olive oil. NO, you can't taste the difference. I also replace the cinnamon/nutmeg mixture with 1 teaspoon EACH of pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon, and I used LIGHT coconut milk too. Toasting the nuts and adding coconut flakes is unnecessary. ;)

Chocolate-Cherry-Banana Breakfast Smoothie

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2006
The only reason I gave this 4 stars instead of 5 if for the ingredient amounts. I could only use a maximum of 2 small frozen bananas and 1 cup of frozen dark sweet cherries or it was WAY too thick and I had to add a lot more soy milk. My daughter is overjoyed when I've had a heavy workout because we get to have "shakes" for breakfast! I LOVE these and we have them at least once a week and keep all of the ingredients on hand at all times!

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2006
This was my first attempt ever at curry. I chose a recipe with ingredients that I might be able to use outside of the recipe. This recipe did that and allowed me to modify it slightly so that my 4 year old could eat it. I added a potato and cubed butternut squash. I decided that after these additions, you really could have done without the chicken and had a vegetarian dish. I ended up adding 2 cans of coconut milk (the light kind) and the consistency was absolutely perfect! I DID need to simmer it for about an extra 20-30 minutes for the potatoes, but it didn't affect the consistency of the other veggies at all! This was a HUGE hit! Oh, I left out the cayenne to eliminate the spice and it ended up needing a little salt.

Blueberry Coffee Cake I

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
I didn't measure the blueberries, I just distributed them evenly and I'm pretty sure I used more than 1 cup. Other than that, I followed the recipe to the letter and used a tube pan. We had this on Christmas morning with Mimosa! It is definitely a special occasion treat with all of that butter, but totally worth it! YUM!

Thai Grilled Chicken with Sweet Chile Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
Very good, strong flavor. The dipping sauce is perfect. Make sure you follow the recipe on it, though. I thought it would be too thin, so I simmered it longer and it turned into a really tasty, but thick (the consistency of thick honey) concoction after it cooled.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2006
Fabulous! I grated the onion to avoid chunks that were too big. I halfed the sugar AND the oil and used one of those "Good Seasons" itatlian dressing shakers, and it didn't compromise the taste AT ALL! I hogged the leftovers the next day and added grilled chicken chunks and diced apples to make it a meal. I ate it standing up in the kitchen, it never even made it to the table! Oh, and I used Spring Mix instead of just plain spinach. Edited to add: This is our Thanksgiving salad every year now.
