Earl Grey Martini

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
I wanted a quick drink for one, so I followed a previous reviewer and microwaved the gin, steeped with the tea for 5 minutes and cooled on ice for 15. I used honey instead of simple syrup, to make it easier. I omitted the lemon on the rim and just used water. No earl grey, used green tea instead. Green tea already has a light flavor so it was more lemon martini than tea. Next time, will use a stronger tea. Lastly, double your ingredients. This does not make 2 servings.

Easiest Falafel

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2014
I was trying to be more calories conscious on this one, so I omitted the oil, baked them at 375 for 15 minutes and didn't roll them in panko. They were okay, a little dry, would probably be more tasty fried. If you bake, I'd definitely recommend using a tsatzki sauce. Combined with lettuce, tomates, on a naan or pita, would definitely be a hearty but healthier meal.

Stuffed Zucchini

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
Based on other reviewers, I made modifications, including my own. I thought adding the seeds would overflow the zucchini "boat", and I was right. I had more than enough filling. I discarded the seeds and used a melon baller to get them out. I added dried basil and used Jimmy Dean sausage with sage for a little more flavor. Used bread crumbs but a lower calorie panko would work as well. I omitted the sauce, as the juices from the zucchini and cheese were enough. Lastly, I omitted covering with mozzarella, to cut down on calories and work. Goes great with white wine!

Quick Peanut Blossoms

Reviewed: May 14, 2014
Brought these cookies to work, with many praises! I modified a little. Didn't roll in sugar (these are peanut butter, not sugar cookies!) and I stuck Reese's mini PB cups on top, for a little more peanut taste. Quick and delicious.

Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2014
I rated this 5 stars on behalf of my friends because I brought it to a party and by the time I got to it, it was finished! I halved this recipe, because 1. Cake in a crock pot sounded a little weird, like it would burn on the bottom and 2. I substituted the baking powder (baking soda and lemon juice) and forgot the water. Made correctly, this cake would be incredible! Guests (at a cooking meetup, no less!) said it was delicious and several asked for the recipe. Let your crock pot make this incredibly easy dessert, you won't regret it!

Mal's Maple Date Pecan Granola in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2013
The great thing about slow cookers is you don't HAVE to check to make sure its burning. I followed previous reviews and baked it on a piece of foil. A casserole dish works as well. I omitted the extract, hemp and chia and substituted raisins for dates (dried cranberries would work as well). I did 1/4 teaspoon cardamom to zip it up but it still was a little bland. I would add more next time, pumpkin pie spice or mace might work as well. Lastly, if you bake it, remember to spray the surface with pam or something similar. A lot of the granola stuck and I had to tear it off.

Ghirardelli Rocky Road Cupcakes

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2012
I also sprayed the liners with cooking spray. I made the mistake of not melting the chocolate over boiling water and just microwaved it. Oops! DON'T DO THIS. I was also scared of burning the marshmallows as read in previous reviews, so I just mixed in the nuts and marshmallows. Due to not cooking the chocolate properly, they came out crisp on top, gooey underneath, best eaten with a spoon. Tasted great but did not look like cupcakes.

Baked Chicken Amandine

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
I subbed in peas for brocolli, greek yogurt for mayo and french fried onions for crackers. Definitely keep the almonds as it adds a nice crunch. Recommend toasted bread and a glass of white wine for a nice meal.

Chicken Paprikash

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
To save time, I cooked skinless boneless chicken breast beforehand. I used noodles, as I didn't want my dumplings to fall apart in the water. I also threw some frozen peas in with the noodles, to get some veggies in the meal. I lastly used greek yogurt in place of sour cream; same consistency and it's healthier. Good lunch, but salt, pepper and paprika zipped it up.
