Apple Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2015
As written we didn't care for these. Filled with cooked apple slices and fried are great but baked with chopped apples just didn't do it. Sorry - I wanted to like them.

Tellang's Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2015
Very easy and straightforward recipe. I used the food processor grater attachment to grate to potatoes. Then into cold water in the salad spinner. Rinsed the potatoes and spun them dry. I cut this recipe in half and the bake time was 20 minutes at 350 in a small 5 x 7" casserole dish. Half a recipe should have been enough for 3 people but actually served 2 big eaters. Thanks for a great breakfast!

Fenelon Poutine

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2015
Hubby is in hog heaven. I used frozen french fries and homemade gravy. I didn't use the mayonnaise, just ketchup but mayo & ketchup mixed together would be good. He laughed at the little bit of lettuce I put on the side, "What is that? Trying to make this look healthy?" The Big Mac Poutine comment in the Cook's Note explained the lettuce, mayo ketchup - of course I didn't see that until after I made this. Thanks for a fun recipe, Robyn.

Korean Hot Wings

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2015
The football fans loved these. I did an assortment of wings including traditional wings and these Korean Wings won hands down. I did dust the wings with a flour / cornstarch / seasoning coating before frying. This sauce is great!

Bacon-Stuffed French Toast Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2015
For me this was just OK, hubby liked it more than me & would give it 4 stars. A couple of recommendations - melt some of the butter in the baking dish and butter the sides or it will stick. I used thick 'Texas Toast' style bread and that may not have been a good plan. The egg mixture didn't sink into the bread well and the bottom layer didn't get enough egg mixture, while the sides were very eggy and stuck to the pan. I would suggest pouring half the egg mixture onto the bottom layer of bread and the rest over the top. The baking time was fine at 35 minutes.

Brix's Mexican Egg Pizza

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2015
As written I had trouble with this recipe. The egg was not cooked (runny whites and yolk) by the time the tortilla was crispy. The first one, I transferred to a sheet pan and placed in a low oven, which cooked the egg but left the tortilla a little 'chewy' instead of crisp. Plan B: I spread the beans, onions, green chilies and cheese on the remaining tortillas. Used the same pan I had cooked the onions in and made over easy eggs. Placed one over easy egg onto the loaded tortilla and topped with the other tortilla and cooked until they were crisp. This worked much better as the eggs were done at the same time the tortillas were golden brown and crispy. Thanks Brix for a new take on Huevos Rancheros.

Pick-Me-Up Egg Drop Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2015
This needed a lot more broth for us. Here is what I would do - either reduce the egg to 1 egg or increase / double the broth and seasonings. I added some white pepper which perked it up a bit. As written this was 1 serving in this house. Thanks - we really enjoyed this soup.

GG's Bulgur Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2015
Whoa! Keeper Alert! Just a couple of notes. First - for the Bulgur, bring the water to a boil in a small sauce pan, add the bulgur and stir, cover and turn off the heat & let sit for 30 minutes. Make the dressing exactly as directed - it is really good! I used green Granny Smith apples. In addition to the dates I added some dried cranberries. (other dried fruit would be really good too.) Once the bulgur is done and slightly cool, mix a little of the dressing into the bulgur and lightly toss. I only used about 1/4 cup sliced almonds and a couple of slices of Munster cheese. What a great combination of flavors! Thanks for sharing GG.

Vanilla-Almond Spiced French Toast

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2015
Nice flavor and for a person who doesn't care for syrup (me) this is just sweet enough. I used high quality pure vanilla bean paste as I don't care for artificial vanilla. A quick buzz with the immersion blender blends the eggs, milk, spices and brown sugar together easily. Thanks!

Roasted Portabello Mushrooms with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2015
These are great! Note - I KNEW I had pine nuts so didn't pick up more - came home and couldn't find them. (Don't you hate when that happens?) Not to be deterred I pressed one and used pecans. Garnished with balsamic glaze, basil and quartered grape tomatoes. Beautiful appetizer. Thanks dimples.

Fried Chicken Bowl

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2015
Pure comfort food. I made my own creamy mashed potatoes and fried chicken strips. See 'Heather's Fried Chicken' on this site for the chicken seasoning. A healthy dose of Country Gravy would put this over the top.

Island Barbecue Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2015
I used Low Sodium Soy Sauce - about 4 cups - upped the garlic to 4 cloves. This is very tasty. Please use the chicken thighs, even if you really like white meat chicken this recipe will surprise you. The boneless skinless thighs cook really fast so be careful to not over cook them.

Rich White Chocolate Cranberry Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2015
We liked these. I omitted the coconut but added some chopped Macadamia Nuts. Do not over bake these. They are a flatter cookie but very tender with crispy edges.

No Knead Bran Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2015
I should have trusted my instincts and skipped this recipe. The amount of liquid to flour / bran is way off. Even using less flour and more water it could not be salvaged.

Marinated Mushrooms with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
This recipe has so much potential! Delicious as written but think of adding sliced red onions, black olives, broccoli florets - the options are endless! I used a good Olive Oil and white Champagne Vinegar. Blended the dressing together with an hand held immersion blender and then stirred in the crumbled blue cheese. I can't believe this has been waiting for a picture for 14 years! Thanks so much for a great recipe, MICHELLECA. You have a KEEPER here!

Potato Bacon Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
Don't let the scale of this recipe scare you off. 3 gallons of soup is 50 servings. Use the "Change Servings" feature to scale it back. The one thing I don't care for is soggy bacon - I would prefer to reserve the crispy bacon and use it as a garnish. Using the bacon drippings adds a lot of flavor and of course you could always add some diced ham if you wanted to.

Cauliflower Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2015
We really enjoyed this. The way the recipe is written makes it seem more complicated than it needs to be. Here is what I did to stream line this and eliminate the blender and a couple of bowls. Put the cauliflower on to steam. While the cauliflower was steaming, melt the 2 Tablespoons butter in a skillet add the finely chopped mushrooms (next time I would add some finely chopped onion too) Add the flour and cook for a few minutes, add the half & half (I use low fat milk instead) stir to create a thick sauce. Mine was about the consistency of Condensed Cream of Mushroom soup. Separate the eggs putting the yolks into a large bowl and the whites into the mixer bowl. Add the green onions, Parmesan cheese & seasoning to the yolks and stir well. Add the steamed and slightly cooled cauliflower and using a fork, mash and stir until well mixed and the cauliflower is slightly mashed. Add the mushroom / white sauce & stir well. Beat the egg whites and fold in. This fit nicely into a 9" deep dish pie pan. Grease the pie pan well or this will stick! It baked perfectly in 35 minutes. I omitted the curry powder and next time I would definitely add it. Thanks for a healthy low carb breakfast.

Vegetarian Hoppin' John

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2015
This is really good! I added red bell pepper with the onions. Upped the Cajun seasoning to 1 tsp. Perfect for Vegetarian guests or would work nicely as a side dish or healthy lunch. Thanks!

Hoppin' Juan

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2015
Very good. Spicy? Yes! That can be toned down though to suit your tastes. So easy! I used some leftover ham chunks instead of the bacon. Delicious. Thanks!
