White Chili with Ground Turkey

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2012
I was unsure about the oregano as I prefer to keep that particular herb in Italian dishes, but it wasn't bad. Next time, I will leave it out and add coriander and/or curry powder. I did decrease the chicken broth to one can and added 1/2-1 c white wine. Good chili, everyone enjoyed it, including 5yo & 2yo.

Extra Easy Hummus

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Mmmmm! Added a little Sriracha, peanut butter and ginger. I forgot to save the bean liquid so I thinned it out with chicken stock. Also added the juice from a half of a lemon.

Finger Lickin' Onion Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2011
Really yummy! I left out the goat cheese, but wish I hadn't as it needed the salt. I subbed 1c of the sour cream with greek yogurt. Also, diced the onion instead of slicing and added cumin. So much better than store bought or out of the packet!

Mom's Buttercream Frosting

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
Awesome with cocoa powder. I didn't measure, just put eye-balled it. When making the flour/milk mixture, I took others' advice and put the flour in first then slowly stirred in milk. For me, it was still really lumpy; but after cooling it, I beat it for about 5 minutes and that smoothed it out. Next time, I will put the milk in first then slowly whisk in sifted flour. No gritty texture since I beat the butter and sugar for over 5 minutes.

Kaese Spaetzle

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
First attempt at making Spaetzle and it turned out pretty good. I wish the directions stated how the dough should look before letting it sit since 3/8c of milk is an odd measurement. I ended up adding more flour after it sat because it was pretty runny and was still runny when I pressed it through the potato ricer. The ricer worked pretty well except the dumplings clumped quite a bit. Next time I think I'll use a ziploc bag with a hole in the corner as another reviewer suggested. I sauteed the onions in bacon grease (using the bacon for the German-style Green Beans recipe on this site) then added the spaetzle. I didn't shred my Emmenthaler, although I wished I had. I cut in very small chunks hoping it would melt well, didn't. My husband loved it especially when combined with the Bohemian Pork Roast on this site. When the 2 are put together, it's a better taste than either on it's own!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
I never knew brussel sprouts could be so good! And my 4-year-old daughter absolutely loves them. Never imagined a kid begging for brussel sprouts :-)

Very good! Added vinegar as one reviewer suggested and gave the beans a nice kick!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2011
Ummm, YUM!!! BIG hit in our house! I did decrease the sugar per other reviewers and use both brown and white (1 1/2c brown & 3/4 white). The first time I made these I used milk chocolate chips since I had a bag I needed to finish up; they were good but had a slightly different taste that even my hubby picked up right away. The next time I made them, I used the semi-sweet and WOW! SO GOOD! I do melt my chips in the butter because I don't like chunks of chocolate in my brownies (weird, I know).

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
I didn't have margarine, so I put some butter in the cavity and then rubbed olive oil on the outside. Also put onion, garlic and half a lemon inside the cavity; stuck garlic slivers under the skin; and basted with sherry.

Mama Bear's Porridge

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2010
My 3-yr old asked me to make her porridge like the 3 bears ate in Goldilocks, so I found this recipe and made it for her. I didn't think she'd eat it, but she really enjoyed it and so did I! I did add a little brown sugar since I like my oatmeal sweet.
