Stir-Fry Chicken and Vegetable Delight

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2014
This is a very nice recipe. I gave it 4 stars because it was lacking a little flavor. I added some freshly grated ginger and that helped a bunch!

Italian Sausage Deep Dish Pizza

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2014
This was very tasty. I found pre-baking the crust worked better for us. The crust is soggy if you don't prebake. I placed the pan with the dough in the oven while the oven was preheating for about 10 minutes. This recipe is great for a busy night. It is easy and fairly quick too.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Butternut Squash Stew

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2014
I made this recipe exactly as stated without the peppers. I subbed in some a teaspoon of chili beak chili oil and the heat was perfect. My problem with the recipe is the cook time. It is way too long. This was perfect after just 3 hours. With such small pieces of chicken and squash you should not have to cook it for 7+ hours! It ruins the texture of the meat and the squash and turns them into mush. After just 3 hours they were perfect and the flavors were distinctive and delicious. I wish I had gone with my gut and took it off the heat at that time. I rated the recipe as it is written. We did not like it overcooked and mushy. I recommend cooking this for no longer than 3 hours and then it's almost 4 stars for me. It smells great the first few hours of cooking too. I might try it again with the lower cooking time.

Spicy Chinese Barbeque Riblets

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2014
This was okay as written, but the sauce was missing something for us. I added cilantro and that helped a great deal and then grated some fresh ginger into the sauce and that gave it the depth I craved! Great base sauce. I love how thick and sticky it is!

Apple Chips

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2014
Delicious! I served with a homemade salted caramel dip. I gave this 4 stars because I had to bake longer than stated. I baked at 225 for about 2 hours total and they came out nice and firm. I flipped them over halfway through. I used parchment paper so there wasn't any issues with sticking. I used the mandolin to slice them and left the core to keep the pretty star shape in the center.

Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2014
Delicious! I didn't have walnuts, so I used pistachios I had on hand. I left out the raisins/cranberries (personal preference). I also reduced the recipe by 1/2, but this is so good I would be inclined to make the whole thing and jar it up for gifts. Thanks for a great recipe!

Mango Berry Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2014
Delicious. Perfect for summer. I made my own raspberry vinaigrette and added the mango to it in the food processor. Yummmm. I was fresh out of hazelnuts, so I used pine nuts I had on hand.

Spinach, Mushroom, and Ricotta Fettuccine

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2014
I made this exactly as stated in the recipe. It was good as is, but lacked a little flavor for me. To give a little depth to this dish I sauteed up some fresh garlic and thyme and added it. This addition made it more flavorful for me. I love, love, love how easy this is to make!

Strawberry Cinnamon Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2014
These cookies are very good. The strawberry flavor came through deliciously. Be sure you use strawberry yogurt SPREAD as stated in the recipe - Brummel and Brown has a good one. I'm not sure I like the olive oil in these. I am going to try making them again with vegetable oil or maybe coconut oil to see the difference, but I do recommend giving these a try. They weren't too sweet either. I think if you are finding them too sweet it might be a result of using something other than the yogurt spread. I think using the spread is key to getting these cookies just right. I love how they have a little crunch but at the same time they are soft and chewy. I HIGHLY recommend adding white chocolate chips to these. It really brings out the flavors and be sure to add at least a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the dry ingredients.

Chef John's BLT Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 21, 2014
I made this with sour cream the first time and we really loved it. I added sun-dried tomatoes for a little more flavor. I wanted to try it with the creme fraiche, so I made it again. We preferred the tang the sour cream added for sure, so I'll be making it again and again but with the sour cream. I omitted the lemon as we didn't care for it in this dish.

Simple Beef Short Ribs

Fantastic! Thanks for a great recipe! I doubled the beef and used a 14.9 ounce can of Guiness and a full tablespoon of freshly minced garlic. It's even more delicious the next day!

Elbows Mac and Cheese with Tuscan Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2014
I made the recipe as written and it needed more flavor, so I added Italian Breadcrumbs on top and garnished with some fresh basil. That helped with the flavor a great deal. I'd like to try it again adding seasoned ground beef to the recipe.

Asian Beef with Snow Peas

Reviewed: May 8, 2014
The sauce is amazing! I did double the sauce ingredients and it needed a full tablespoon of cornstarch to thicken it. Loved the recipe although I used sugar snap peas and added a sliced red pepper and fresh mushrooms too. Thanks for sharing!

Beef Breakfast Burrito

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2014
We liked this breakfast burrito. I save a few ingredients and used Johnsonville Breakfast links for the meat. They didn't need seasoning, so I paired the sausage with the cilantro and eggs and topped with cheese and salsa. It was quick and easy!

Avocado Lime Cheesecake

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2014
Thank you for a delicious recipe! I was skeptical, but this is amazing! I'm not a fan of key lime pie because it is typically too tart, but this was just right!! I got tired of squeezing limes and getting hardly any juice, so I used about 1/4 cup of fresh lime juice and subbed in the stuff from the plastic lime for the other 1/4 cup. Still amazing!! I also made my own graham cracker crust. I did not use an ice cream maker. I processed everything in the food processor until smooth and then poured it into the pie crust and froze overnight.

Caramelized Onion and Horseradish Smashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2014
These are really good. A little heavy on the horseradish which is why I gave it 4 stars, but love the addition of the caramelized onions! That is genius! Thanks!!
