Amazing Banana Sorbet

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2013
Sometimes, I really should look at the reviews 1st. But alas, I normally don't the 1st time out. The recipe seemed pretty easy with the 1:1:1 ratio and I totally needed to use up 4 cups of bananas. Following the recipe to a T with the correct ratio being multiplied to a 4:4:4 ratio, I was disappointed. It was way way to sugary. It was like frozen syrup even after waiting over 12 hours to scoop and serve. The sugar needs to be cut down to half to get the suttle flavor of the pure banana. As is, the recipe was so sweet it tasted like banana flavored Laffy Taffy....I'll try again with tweaks but won't be adding that much sugar again. Sorry for the poor review.

Southern Fried Apples

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
I had 3 super large granny smith apples. Simply easy to follow, just make sure not to over do with the cinnamon. As is, was delish and 3 of my children that could eat apples, really liked them.

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2013
Soo simple and delish...whether you boil or steam, the end result is still delish. This recipe is on point and it's an easy recipe for even a beginning cook to try.

Black Bean Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2013
a good and flavorful, easy and basic recipe with not a lot of work. I made this twice liked it fine both times. For simple soup, I enjoyed as is...the 2nd time I wanted it basically chunky by adding Gluten Free noodles and a few pieces of chunked turkey that I had left over from another meal. When you have already have these items as a staple in your pantry and frig the cost is a faction. Great end of the month stretch your dollar budget feeding your family on a rainy day...any day! UPDATED: 10/24/14 adding a protein such as Johnsonville Butcher Shop Style Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Smoked sausage to this wonderful recipe, just adds more depth and flavor. Was super good!

Paleo No-Bake Chickpea Cookie Dough

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2013
This to me was an interesting recipe. I can tell you easy and simple. However, I didn't like the bold taste of the vanilla for such a small amount of cookie dough, but understand it's to mask the taste of the chickpeas, but I think the peanut better does a good job at that. I'd make again but use less vanilla(1/2 tsp should be way plenty) & a peanut butter "lower" in oil because these are extremely oily. Best tip I can also offer is, pulse and blend your cooked chick peas 1st before adding the peanut butter, agave nectar & vanilla...the peas are rather chunky and do not break up well with the other ingredients. These can be a quick fix for that cookie dough need. And kept in the frig a few days.

Lemon Pie II

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
I found this recipe 1st floating on FB, when I decided to make it. There was a 2nd version with adding whip topping, so in a conversation with another fellow AR member, I made it both ways....then I found it here on AR. So to the recipe, it was easy, but it's best if you freeze it for sure, makes for easy cutting and thawing in single slices. I zested a lemon as to tell the difference between the 2 pies I made. Loved this one better because it was bolder with lemon and thicker compared to the light and airy of the 2nd pie. Will make again.

Spicy Orange Bison Balls

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
These meatballs rocked...However I'm giving a 4 star and not a 5. I followed the recipe to a T but calculated the recipe for 2 pounds of ground bison. Which was fine with the meatball part, it was the sauce. I tend to be one that tries to follow recipes to a T if all possible. The sauce was tasty, but you need to note that: 1. drain your pan of any residual fat and oil before adding the ingredients for the sauce. It makes for a very greasy sauce and it prevents your sauce from thickening. 2. I had so much liquid, it looked like soup, hubby agreed too but because there was so much liquid, we didn't find the recipe that spicy. Will make again, but if I'm doubling the meat, I won't be doubling the liquids, 6 cups of water didn't seem like a lot at first until it took me 2 hours to get the liquids to reduce and thicken.

Insalata Caprese I

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2013
This recipe was a great addition to my homegrown tomatoes and basil. I did use a balsamic reduction and there's nothing like putting those fresh ingredients to work on a tasty treat for me and my girls. I totally forgot to add the onions, but oh well, I will next time. Loved it Loved it!! Will make again.

Squash Stuffing

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2013
My kids said this was okay, it really isn't a stuffing recipe, more like a wet casserole. I thought it would be great to use, with some free squash that I was gifted, since I have girls that flip over squash. Having said that, there is too much "cheese food" that over powers the stuffing mix and squash, from what my oldest said. She asked I make it again, but with out the cheese food. She said everything gets lost in taste and the cheese stood out and nothing really else, quoted from my little squash expert. In my opinion, it would probably be best if the ingredients were all combined and baked rather then layering, because the soup sits on the squash and onions and doesn't go anywhere. I'll make this again with tweaks and adjustments because my girls asked me to, but preferably not something I'd make again as is.

Hearty Cranberry-Bison Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2013
As an Allstar Ambassador, it was my pleasure to work with the Bison Council. This was a recipe I choose to make and rate. As I thought it was out of my comfort zone with adding cranberries to a savory dish...Little did I realize, what a treat it was. The pairing of bison with the cranberries was fantastic. During the cooking process, the berries broke down and melded with the broth, meat and herbs and it made an excellent addition to my family's dinner. One bowl was left after everyone sat down to eat and really raved that it was quite delicious. I've used ground bison before and this was a 1st using it in tender cuts of roast. I will so be buying it as a great dinner treat for my family. This recipe was exceptionally wonderful, meat was tender, the broth and vegetables were over the top awesome! The recipe as a whole was just outstanding. If I had enough for the family to have leftovers for another dinner, they would be gone right now ;-) thank you for allowing me to be apart of making this meal. It's a winner!

Fig and Onion Spread

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2013
Nummy Nummy Nummy!!! Easy recipe to follow. From start to finish. So when my figs broke down they were still a tad chunky, I finished the cooking process and then pulsed the batch a couple of times in my Ninja and there was a great thick, tangy sweet oniony spread. My girls and I liked it, but I am on guard.....don't want to share! For some reason this recipe reminds me of my childhood. I don't know if my Nana ever made this but, for some reason, it reminds me of her. And I can tell you, this will be come a cherished treat for me. TY....TY! A great pairing of savory and sweet without it being overly sweet or tart, it was right on the money! And yes, I did add the sugar!

Pluots and Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
If you are a fan of tart and savory, this one is for you. While the pork was great, no one in the family cared for the tart sauce that came from our sweet sweet fruit. Bummer, so sorry. It wasn't for us.

Mama Long's Goulash Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2013
The recipe seemed very easy to make, however the flavor profile was, a so-so. There was to much acidity to the recipe and no amount of spices or a tad of sugar helped. I would leave out the vinegar and lemon juice and beef up the spices with a seasoned tomato sauce. My family didn't much say it was great or good, it was "ahhh it's okay" Meaning they really didn't care for it much. Sorry this recipe needs some good tweaking to become a really good recipe. As is, I'm sorry to say, won't me making again.

Egyptian Lahma Bil Basal (Beef in Rich Onion Sauce)

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
Overall this was extremely yummy. I followed it to a T, my only negative to this whole dish is there was too much onion sauce and not enough meat. And it could account for a few things, 1: my onions were the size of small grapefruits or softballs, so I used only 3 and 2: possibly didn't even need that much water. But the overall flavor of the dish was great, so I can say for sure I will make again, but will add at least another pound of stew meat. It sure was different and delicious. You could totally add veggies to this to make it chunkier.

Rosemary Roasted Turkey

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
I modified this recipe to fit a 3 pound turkey roasted that was netted when I bought it un-seasoned. With my herb garden going crazy, I totally took advantage of using the ingredients listed. I didn't place he herbs under the skin because as I stated, my turkey roast was netted and felt just compelled to rub on the outer portion verses, cutting open the net and placing under the skin. However, totally killer delicious, my turkey was very flavorful and it was a nice change from butter basting or honey brining my turkey. Will make again...a super thank you!!
