BREAKSTONE'S Sour Cream Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
This was fantastic! I left out the ham and the parmesan and it was still amazing. Most people would want to add some salt without those two ingredients, but for me it was just right! Finally, a super easy and delicious potato recipe!

Butternut Squash Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This tastes almost exactly like pumpkin pie, if you modify it like others have suggested with the cinnamon and nutmeg. I halved the sugar in both the dish and the topping and it was still way too sweet for us, but if you have a sweet tooth, you will love it!

Poached Orange Pears

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
These were very easy to prepare and turned out to be an elegant dish! I loved that the rest of the ingredients are items I often have on hand. I served these over warm ginger bread cake (from a mix) with a dollop of vanilla ice cream and the syrup from the pears poured over the top. Delicious and great for guests!

Vegetable Filo Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This was very good and had much better flavor than I expected it to have. I used a little more cheese than called for and mixed feta with muenster since I didn't have enough feta, and that had a more mild flavor which I liked. I used broccoli, zucchini, onions, carrots and sweet potato and 1 leek, which I did not steam with the rest of the veggies (just added to the mixture before baking). I marinated the veggies and spices for about an hour in a balsamic vinaigrette and then added the cheese and egg mixture before putting it all together. I think this could possibly use more cheese / egg mixture, but the low amount kept the dish lighter and healthier. Overall this was very good and a great way to get in lots of veggies in one meal! I gave it four stars because I found the recipe to be somewhat vague. Thanks to all the other reviewers for their suggestions / modifications.

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This was absolutely DELICIOUS. I'm not a huge fan of chocolate cake, but I made it for company and everyone had two slices and went home with some too! SO good and incredibly easy. I didn't have as much sour cream as I needed so I used 1/3 sour cream and 2/3 plain (whole fat) yogurt - turned out great! Thanks for the recipe, I'll definitely make this again.

Satiny Chocolate Glaze

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
I've always made a chocolate glaze recipe almost exactly like this (my mom's recipe) but I've never seen it written anywhere. This one includes a tiny amount of vanilla, which my mom's doesn't have and I liked the subtle addition.

Fabulous Fajitas

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2009
My husband really likes this dish and it is a super easy way to make fajitas. But I have to agree the Italian seasoning, while tasty, is not very authentic for fajitas! However, we make it on a regular basis when in a time crunch.

Sauteed Swiss Chard with Parmesan Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2009
This was absolutely delicious! I had never eaten chard before but my organics delivery included a bunch so I made this recipe and even my non-vegetable eating husband liked it. I may have cooked it a little too long because some of the wilted chard turned an unappetizing shade of brown, but it still had really good flavor! I will definitely make this again. Thanks DannyBoy!

Cheesy Potatoes I

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2009
These had good flavor, but the sauce was incredibly greasy and liquidy. I may have added a little too much milk, but I halved the amount of butter, and added some flour to the milk before adding it so I'm not sure what went wrong. I will make it again but definitely need to tweak the sauce. Overall, very easy to make.

Quick and Easy Sauteed Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
This was fantastic! I will always make spinach like this from now on. When I read the recipe, I thought 10 mins would be too long and make the spinach mushy, but it was perfect. I used 2 cloves of chopped fresh garlic (instead of the salt) and added that as soon as the oil heated up, and then sauteed it for about 1 minute to release the flavor before I added the spinach. My husband who hates the "spinach" flavor of this vegetable, ate his whole serving for once.

Black Bean and Corn Salad I

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2008
This recipe is super easy and totally delicious! I brought it to a potluck today and it disappeared very quickly. It makes a ton - so don't double the recipe if you plan to eat it as a side dish. I used leftover corn on the cob (sliced off) for the corn and it was scrumptious. I didn't have time to refrigerate it overnight but it still had a ton of flavor. Makes a great filler for fajitas too - just add your meat of choice!

Fresh Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
This salad was fantastic! I left out the water chestnuts and added some ripe chopped avocado and fresh tomato since I had them on hand. Next time I'll use a little less onion, but otherwise the dressing made a nice sweet contrast to the tangy spinach.

Oven Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2008
Super easy if you're having a bunch of people over for brunch! The eggs came out nice and fluffy. But keep in mind if you have something else in the oven at the same time, you will need to cook these for a longer time - at least 15 minutes longer.

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
This recipe was very good! As it was cooking, I began to regret using an equal amount of oregano, since it smelled quite strongly of it. But once it was done, (right on time), it tasted great and no one spice outpowered the next! This was so easy, I will definitely make it again. I made it with chicken pieces instead of a whole chicken, and it turned out great. Thanks!

Cheesy Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
I made this recipe in a hurry, so I increased the oven temp to 400 and cooked it for just over a half hour. Not sure if it turned out with the expected consistency, I thought it was a little wet. However, I brought it to a dinner party and every inch was scraped out of the dish by the rest of the guests. Definitely a crowd pleaser, but it's very unhealthy!! I also used 1 cup of sour cream instead of mayo.

Stir Fried Kale

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2004
I made this recipe without the breadcrumbs because I realized I didn't have any in the house once I'd already started cooking. It was very good and had a lot of flavor! The kale shrunk down a lot and absorbed the oil nicely - it wasn't too dry or too wet. I will definitely use this recipe again and maybe try it with spinach too.
