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.

These were fine. I am not sure if it was worth the calories but I am glad I tried them. Thanks!

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!

Black-Eyed Peas and Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2015
This is really, really good! So easy too. I used drained canned black eyed peas, more ham than was called for. (I had a bunch of leftover ham from the holidays) Added a few red pepper flakes and a healthy shake of Cajun seasoning. Delicious and it is ready to just minutes. Did I say this is a KEEPER? Yes, it is!

Brown Butter and Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2015
A very nice recipe although not much different than Oatmeal Cookies with Chocolate Chips. I was hoping the browned butter would have a more pronounced taste. They hold their shape well. Thanks!

Simple Cream Cheese and Ham Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
This was good, although I didn't have the English mustard with tumeric. I would use a lot more green onions next time - they add a really nice flavor, also I used more ham than was called for. Next time I will try to have the right mustard on hand. Thanks!

Kansas Quail

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
What is not to love? Bacon and Mushrooms, Yum! The pre-cooked (very thin) bacon would work well here.

Extreme Veggie Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
Any veggies would work with this, I added sliced mushrooms and used red peppers. I think 1/4 cup of olive oil is too much - I used just enough to barely coat the bottom of the skillet. I didn't want to add the black beans and have them muddle the colors of the other food so those I added at the end, next time I would probably just skip them altogether.

Simple Scalloped Potatoes with Ham

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2015
This has great potential but the baking time & amount of sauce is way off. These needed at least 1 hour at 400. The top was brown and they looked done at 30 minutes but the potatoes were not cooked through. I returned them to the oven, tented with foil to prevent further browning for another 30 minutes. 3 cups of Alfredo sauce was too much for the amount of potatoes. The bottom of the dish was swimming in sauce. The flavor was really good and with a few changes these would be great.

Bonnie's Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2015
I really like cabbage cooked like this. I don't think the butter is needed, there is plenty of bacon drippings to do the job. One note, if you are not adding any water, be careful to not burn the cabbage and onions. Even just a bit of water to start out helps prevent burning until the cabbage starts releasing it's juices.
