Grandma's Lemon Cauliflower Side Dish

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2015
We enjoyed cauliflower prepared this way. The chopped egg reminds me of how vegetables are served in Scandinavian countries. It took far more than 10 minutes for my cauliflower to get tender, closer to 20 but the rest of the recipe worked perfectly. Thanks for sharing!

Spinach, Sausage, and Egg Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2015
This is a good start but as written it lacks flavor. I believe it needs a full tsp of oregano, some garlic, S&P and some minced onions to reach its full potential. Thanks, Lauren

This is a nice change from my usual baked sweet potato. We all enjoyed it. Thanks, Erica B

Apple-Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2015
This reminds me of a dish from my favorite German restaurant, but possibly better. The spice blend is perfect. I was unsure about the allspice but it works. Thanks, Patty

Brussels Sprouts and Apricot Saute

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2015
Since I was cooking for more than 1 child I decided to bake this. I scaled the recipe for 6 but only used 2 tbs of maple syrup and I baked it at 400F for 20 minutes. I think it could have used more apricots for the scaled version. I also think in the future I would shred the sprouts in the food processor. All in all, this is a good idea with a tasty result. Thanks, Shahana

Patty's Mashed Turnips

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2015
Turnips retain a good amount of the water they boil in so I suggest mashing without adding anything, draining the released water and then adding the butter, just a bit of milk, S&P, and I like to also add a pinch of nutmeg.

Skillet Chicken Bulgogi

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2015
I've made this twice now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly and I kept thinking something was missing. The second time I added about a tbs of minced ginger. Is it authenttic? Who cares - it's delicious and fairly quick to make a nutritious diner. Thanks, Daveparks4!

Best Date Squares Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2015
The sugar could be reduced here. I made half the recipe in a 8x8 pan, yielding 16 squares. I think there is too much butter and not enough oats but it is a good starting point. Thanks, Suzanne.

Roasted Chicken Rub

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2015
We eat a great deal of chicken so I'm always looking for new ways to serve it. This rub is a very welcome addition to my repertoire. Couldn't find celery flakes, so I too used ground celery seed and I had no cayenne so I used passilla powder, which added an earthy note. I will continue to search out celery flakes (or make my own) and then make a jarful to keep on hand. Thanks, Semigourmet!

Lamb L'Arabique

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2015
Tomato and lamb seemed like an off combo to me but the recipe had so many positive ratings I decided to give it a go. Great decision! I made a few very minor changes to use what I had on hand. I used canned tomatoes with jalapeños in place of the Roma's and hot sauce and left out the lentils. I also did the whole thing in my cast iron Dutch Oven, stovetop and oven. My house smelled heavenly as it cooked and the taste was just as good, I served it with couscous. Thanks, Heather!

Tahini Spinach

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2015
I made 2 small changes. I used fresh spinach instead of frozen which I sautéed in about 1 tbs EVO. The other was I started with 1/8 cup of red wine vinegar and added to taste. I probably used about 1/4 cup total. We enjoyed this it was a nice change of pace and I will make it again. Thank you!

Rice Elena

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2015
Recipe Group selection 3/7/15. I made half a recipe for DD and me and I built our meatless Monday dinner around it. The only change I made was to use a Mexican cheese blend rather than the Montery Jack and Cheddar. It was rich, creamy, and very satisfying. The green chilis were perfect. Thank you Bryantgal31, this recipe is a keeper!

Bacon Garlic Parmesan Cauliflower Casserole

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2015
If I could find more recipes like this I could become a vegetarian! I made my own mushroom soup, which was really good on its own so I have to think it is better than canned. The flavors worked perfectly together. I chose to omit the French fried onions and instead mixed the bacon with breadcrumbs and grated Parmesan, then topped the whole thing with more Parmesan half way through baking. I thought about leaving out the red pepper flakes but I am so glad I didn't. There isn't enough to make the dish hot, just enough to make your taste buds pay attention. Thanks, 2bMary!

Heavenly Lemon Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2015
I made this into cupcakes, baking for 23 minutes. (I had expert advice from another member to start checking at 16 minutes and follow up in 3 minute intervals. They are so moist and lemony even before adding the syrup. I kept going back and rereading the recipe because the batter seemed so thick, but they baked up light and luscious. Thank you Christina, this recipe is a keeper.

Mediterranean-Style Eggplant Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2015
I make something similar when I can get fresh eggplant from the garden, but I never thought to add the red wine vinegar and it adds such a burst of fresh flavor. I used wide egg noodles because I had them on hand and I doubt any of my eaters realized they weren't Italian and I used fresh mozzarella. Delicious! and I know the leftovers I'm hoarding for my lunch will be even better. Thank you Debbie.

Lemon Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2015
This is so simple and yet delivers so much flavor. I didn't measure the garlic or lemon juice and it still came out well. I so seldom cook chicken on the stove top that this was a lovely treat. Thank you. Violet,

Old Fashioned Porridge and Molasses Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2015
This is the third time I am making this bread and the first time I could get a photo. Excellent bread! Very forgiving too. I lost count of how many cups of flour I added and just winged it and it still worked! Your whole house will smell wonderful and your tummy will be very happy. Thank you Manella, you have come up with another great recipe.

Sesame-Crusted Tuna with Summer Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2015
My review is for the tuna only. I didn't make the salsa. I think I would have liked it better had it called for more seasoning than just the sesame seeds and a shorter cooking time. Once it is opaque the tuna is almost well done and we much prefer it on the rare side. Having said that, I must admit I had to cook it inside because the grill is iced in right now. I broiled it and watched it carefully so I do think I cooked it as instructed. Thanks anyway.

Almond Squares I

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2015
Interesting treat. I used almond extract instead of vanilla as the submitter suggested and I am glad I did because even with it the base almost tasted like butterscotch. I can't imagine using sweetened chocolate if you follow the recipe for the base. I did as instructed and used unsweetened and still found for my taste, I could cut the sugar back. Thanks, Gayla

Cranberry, Cinnamon, and Brown Sugar Steel Cut Oats

Reviewed: Jan. 31, 2015
Great flavor, stick to your ribs, healthy breakfast for anytime of day. I chose to omit the butter and sugar as I cooked this to accommodate my dieting daughter, so those who wanted them added them on top. This is comfort food! Thanks!
