Kalamata Olive and Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
This bread was so easy to make! I made it by hand because I love the process. It turned out great and was quite tasty along with our lentil soup. I added fresh rosemary to the filling and kneaded the ingredients through the bread. The filling poked out in places but looked pretty and rustic. The texture of the bread was like country white...was hoping it would be more like an Italian loaf...not sure how to achieve that texture since I'm not very experienced in bread baking. This would be a great recipe baked as foccacia too!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2007
This is everything a NY cheesecake should be. Tall, dense, rich, creamy. I baked mine with a pan of hot water on the shelf below the cheesecake - this step helps to enhance the creamy texture. The only change I will try next time is baking at 325 as my edges came out a little brown. This recipe is a keeper though - one that will be treasured!

Pumpernickel Spinach Dip I

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2007
Great, fresh tasting recipe! I made this with about 12 oz. sour cream and used low fat cc and sour cream. One tip is to wilt the fresh spinach with a little bit of water before adding to the recipe. I find that it brings out the flavor of the spinach more. Everyone raved about how delicious and fresh tasting the dip was. I served it with a wheat beer bread.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2007
We really enjoyed this dish. Following other reviewers advice I omitted the tomato sauce and sugar, and drained the stewed tomatoes. I simmered this for about an hour and served it over jasmine rice. I doubled the curry and added red pepper flakes and cayenne to suit our tastes for spicy Indian food. The coconut flavor was not very pronounced although I added shredded coconut. The only remedy for this may be to add fresh raw coconut, but not sure I'm willing to go to the trouble. Overall, this is delicious, and I will make often - even for entertaining. Thanks!

Grandmother's Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2006
These are very good....the only changes I made were to use real butter (3/4 c.), whole wheat flour and old fashioned oats. They come out soft and chewy and are quite a crowd pleaser! Thanks!!

Spicy Slow Cooker Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: May 8, 2006
I thought this was pretty good for something you make in the slow cooker. Hubby and I are actually away from the house for more like 11 hours a day so I soaked the beans the night before and then put them in on low all day. they were perfect! I may add onions next time. Thanks!

Sesame-Maple Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2006
Wow this marinade was fantastic and perfect with the chicken. We even used a little extra for dipping. My only suggestion would be to plan for extra marinade time for more flavor if possible. I can't wait to try the other marinade flavors!

Chewiest Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2006
This is my new brownie recipe! We love chewy brownies and these are awesome. They are so easy I have made them three times already....a few tips - rather than trying to spread the dough which is more like a clay than batter, press it into your pan by hand, working from the middle out to the edges (a 10 inch round cake pan is perfect), the parchment paper is an unecessary step if you grease your pan (i've made them twice now without it - no problems). Lastly a little splash of milk (less than 1/4 cup) can help to make the dough more pliable - without changing the texture. Warning these are addictive!

Spinach Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
I made this as an entree. It was good but very rich, and I feel like the texture leaves a lot to be desired. The pie would benefit from the addition of some garlic or garlic powder at the very least...Overall, I thought it was okay, but, while my husband would not openly admit he didn't like it, he picked through it to eat just the spinach. Sits heavy in the tummy too - but I should have known!

Couscous Salad with Chickpeas, Dates & Cinnamon

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
This was unusual and delicious. I love dates but rarely see main course recipes with them - so I couldn't wait to try this. What a great vegetarian meal. I only used half the olive oil and thought it was still moist and flavorful. I was surprised how quick and easy it was to whip up too because the ingredient list seems long, but it does come together in just 30 minutes and is well worth the effort. The leftovers are great cold too!

Easy Beer Bread Mix

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2006
We really enjoyed this. I used 3 c. self rising flour as another reviewer suggested and it came out great - sort of the consistency of a biscuit (crumbly crust, soft on the inside). I only used about 2 tablespoons melted butter on top and it was still very tasty. I thnk that other herbs like dill, sage, rosemary or thyme would go nicely in this bread as well. This was a nice accompaniment to Spinach & Leek White Bean Soup.

Logan Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2006
This recipe is delicious and versatile. I really like that you can vary the fruits and nuts you add to the bread. I added chopped dates and put in Sunsweet Fruit Puree oil substitute for the oil. They came out good but they weren't as moist as I'd hoped. Next time I will increase the honey to make that flavor more pronounced. I have a feeling peanut butter would be great in these too. I baked these in muffin pans and am enjoying them for breakfast and for a pick me up for the gym. These will travel and freeze well. Thank you so much!

Alfredo Light

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
This was great for a light alfredo recipe. Hubby loved it and took the leftovers to work (a rarity). I did add a lot of extra salt and some fake bacon bits for the bacon you find in some alfredos. Thanks!

Mixed Fruit Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
This was a deliciously, different fruit crisp. I added some dried cherries too since I had some on hand, and used granny smith apples and a sweeter variety. This was delicious warm from the oven. Thank you Shelley!

Wicked Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2005
This recipe is missing one stick of butter (use 2 sticks). Most brownie recipes for a 9x13" pan use 2 sticks butter. Hope this helps.

Lentils And Spinach

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2005
This was very good. I doubled everything except used only one onion and used chicken broth for half the water. I also added 3/4 c. finely chopped carrots in the last 15 min. (b/c mom always did) and added fresh spinach in the last 5 minutes of cooking. I suggest doubling this to serve four as a main dish. (Hubby and I had little leftover) Awesome, thanks!

Chickpea Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2005
This was very good and doubles well. I made this for a crowd using a whole box of pasta, 2 cans chickpeas, 8 oz. feta, only 1/2 c. olive oil, extra lemon juice, 1 can olives, and no onion. I also only used 4 large tomatoes because there were still plenty in the expanded version. Fresh basil is perfect in this dish. Thanks!

Sour Cream Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2005
Great, simple recipe. I used it in the Mexican Cornbread Salad recipe by Jose on this site. It was just right in the salad. I did use half the oil and increased the sour cream (reduced fat) to thicken it up a bit.

Mexican Cornbread Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2005
This was a hit at our Labor Day BBQ. I added layers of sliced black olives and used the Sour Cream Dressing recipe on this site in place of the bottled dressing. It looks beautiful and festive in a trifle bowl and is definitely not your ordinary salad. Awesome recipe, Jose! Thx.
