Lemon Nut Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2013
I baked these as written, but at 15 minutes the bottoms were done, and the middle wasn't quite done. If I were to make these again, I'd turn the oven down to 325 and see if that would help the situation. These have a nice flavor and are good with a cup of coffee--not too sweet and light. I did use butter. Thanks for a nice change of pace!

Very Yummy Croutons

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2013
We love buttery croutons, so this recipe was just right up our alley! The amount of butter could be scaled back just a little because there was still some left in the bowl when my bread cubes were plenty saturated. Next time I think I would use half garlic powder and half garlic salt because these were just a little salty for us. I had to remove the bowl of baked croutons from in front of my family for sampling or we would not have had any left for our salad! Yum!

Garlic-Parmesan Croutons

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2013
I made a scaled down version of these, and they came out very good. Since oregano can have a strong taste, I'd caution you to perhaps start with going a little short on that herb--you can always add, but it's harder to take away! Cooking time could vary depending on how dry your bread is to start with. I took mine out of the oven when they were nicely golden brown, but they weren't quite crunchy yet. I baked them a little more, and they almost got too done. I liked the process of how to toss the bread cubes in the butter solution. Thanks for adding so much flavor to our salad!

Barbeque Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
We loved this! I can see that marinating the fish for a while before would be beneficial, so I'll do that next time. I did use a Costco halibut fillet rather than a steak, but otherwise I followed the recipe to a T. It really wasn't as sweet as you'd think. This will be a repeat! Thanks! It's exactly what we needed tonight!

Limehouse Chicken

Reviewed: May 29, 2013
This rating represents a split between me and hubby because he really liked it and I thought it was just OK. I did use chicken breasts and omitted the mint but otherwise followed the recipe. It was moist, but I wanted more zip to it I think. I like trying new ways to fix chicken, and this certainly did fulfill that! Thanks for the recipe, and thanks for feeding my hubby well!

Mashed Potatoes and Apples

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
This is an interesting recipe. My hubby liked it more than I did, probably because I thought the texture was just a little different than what I am used to. It was all eaten up, so I can't complain at all! I made half of what was called for, following the recipe otherwise. I did add a touch of Tajin to the finished product. I would make this again. Thanks for the recipe!

Oven Roasted Greek Potatoes

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
I did only a portion of the recipe using four medium-sized red potatoes a little parboiled and cut in slices. I added a little extra salad dressing and omitted the water. This took an hour and a half to bake, and we really enjoyed the results. Hubby especially loved these potatoes. This MyPlate recipe will be a repeat! Thanks!

Twelve Minute Pasta Toss

Reviewed: May 24, 2013
We thought this was very easy and delicious, too! I used boneless skinless thighs that I cleaned up of all the fat. The olive oil I used was rosemary infused, a gift from a good friend. Be sure to save a little of the pasta water so you can use it to add to the meal once you get it together if you need more moisture. I think white wine would have worked well, too. If you didn't have sundried tomatoes, capers would be a great sub, as would marinated artichoke hearts or bottled roasted red peppers. As you can tell, this lends itself very well indeed to whatever you happen to have on hand! Thanks for a great meal!

Honey Baked Chicken

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
I agree with others about the runniness of the sauce, but I attributed that to the fact that I cooked this on stovetop. I used Dijon mustard but otherwise followed the recipe. It was tasty and quick and easy, and there's a lot to be said for that! The sauce would be good thickened a tad and maybe doubled so you could pour some over rice or potatoes. Hubby liked it, so that was all that mattered!

Carrot Salad

Reviewed: May 21, 2013
This was just OK. I shredded my carrots and apple by hand, and I think it would have been better to have used my food processor because it got mooshy. We are so used to seeing raisins with this type of salad that it's hard to get past not using them. The combination of apple and carrots is an interesting one. Thanks for the idea of this.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
I cut this down to 8 servings, and that will give me plenty for a while! I used coconut oil and raw honey but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I think next time I won't chop the nuts so finely, and I'll try boiling the liquid part a little longer to see if it does help it clump better. I baked this at 300 for about 22 minutes, and that seemed right for this amount. The taste is excellent! I think extended family members will like this a lot!

Chef John's Lemon Bars

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
This recipe is almost like the one I've made for many years with three exceptions: no vanilla in the crust, only two eggs, and baking soda in the custard. I have to say that I really like how this version turned out and will replace my old recipe with this one. I did double it because I have to gift at least half of it to someone else, and I knew my family would be very sad if they didn't get any. I wish I had a kitchen torch so I could have tried the meringue option! (I do not need another kitchen tool!) Thanks, Chef John, for another winner!

Chicken Newburg

Reviewed: May 15, 2013
This recipe definitely needed some ooomph for me. Hubby thought it was good, but I found myself wanting some depth to it. Maybe marsala would have been better than the sherry. I ended up adding a lot of Tajin seasoning to it (as you can see from my photo), but it could be any seasoning that you wanted it to be. I did not add the avocado because I couldn't imagine the flavors together, so maybe that's the reason for my thinking it was bland. This is a very quick and easy meal to make using leftover chicken. Thanks for this idea!

Korean BBQ Galbi

Reviewed: May 12, 2013
This made a delicious dinner for us. I did have to change a few things (sorry review purists!) because of personal preferences. I had bonesless short ribs, but this was the recipe I wanted to use. I only used one cup of sweeteners (about 7/8 cup of brown sugar and a tablespoon or so of honey), and went short on the sesame oil. I only marinated this for 8 hours, and the taste was very delicious. I loved how they grill because you get crunchy parts on the edges and the insides were perfectly medium rare and perfect. I served this over sticky rice, a perfect complement to the meat! I have more to BBQ waiting for us, and I can't wait! Thanks for this recipe!

What's not to love with this recipe? I made it as written and immediately adorned my morning toast with it! Yum!

Currant Nut Drop Cookies

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
These cookies are so yummy. I will love having one with a cup of coffee! The frosting is something I'd put on other cookies, too, because it is just wonderful. I made a small batch of these so I could try to use up my currants, but I will just have to buy more now. I did make one change, and that was to use all butter rather than the shortening. They were perfectly done in 8 minutes. Thanks for posting this recipe that's been a little lost around Allrecipes for a while! Yum!

Light Avocado Egg Salad

Reviewed: May 3, 2013
I was so hungry for an egg sandwich, so when I saw this one, I HAD to have it! I used a little more avocado than called for, and I made two substitutions: Dijon instead of the yellow mustard and Tajin (chili powder with dehydrated lime) for the paprika. I ate this open faced and loved it! I think my son would like this without the bread because he is on the paleo diet, and this would work. This is delicious!

South of the Border Shrimp Gazpacho

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
This is a recipe that Baking Nana brought to my house for a gathering, so I didn't even have to make it----just taste it! And taste it I did--again and again! The thing I like about this recipe is that you can make it just as hot as you want (or not). You could obviously taste the delicious Herdez cooking sauce in it lending its unique flavors. This was a winner! Thanks, Baking Nana!

Caramel Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2013
These did not work at all for me. The cookie part was good (and I used the parts of them that I could for another recipe), but the caramel was so hard that it was inedible. I think the caramel needed to have some cream or butter added to it so that it would stay softer.
