Garlic Chicken Sausage and Summer Vegetable Saute

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
Very flavorful, yet easy to make. I had all of the ingredients on hand and followed recipe as written. I served this over whole wheat thin spaghetti. I will make this for dinner again!

Champagne Cocktail

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
I wasn't sure what to expect when I made this. Considering there were no reviews, one low rating, and no photo I really wanted to give this drink a try. I prefer champagne as my drink of choice anyways. Scaling this down to two servings, I used pink lemonade which I highly recommend for better flavor as well as the pretty pink color that will appeal to your guests. It turns a frothy pink once the ice cream melts into it. I used a good quality cream vanilla ice cream and I look forward to serving this to my friends in the near future. Very creamy, smooth, and tasty!

Linguini with Roasted Vegetables and al fresco Italian Style Chicken Meatballs

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2012
This recipe is a keeper! The only major difference was I used steamed broccoli in place of roasted asparagus since I didn't have any on hand but still wanted to make this recipe for dinner. I added the steamed broccoli into the pan with the other roasted veggies. I used plain chicken meatballs since my grocer didn't carry the tomato and basil variety. I used a basil infused olive oil in this recipe. We really enjoyed it!

Truly Coconutty Cream Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2012
Overall this was a great pie. I made mine in a tart pan instead of a pie pan and only put the crust on the bottom. The crust is delicious! I used half coconut milk and half coconut cream for the mixture and still added some Lorann's Gourmet Coconut flavoring oil to it. I didn't have flaked coconut, which I will make sure I add next time I make this. I think it is needed mostly for texture than anything else. I ate a maraschino cherry with each piece. Delightfully coconutty!

Baked Penne

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
This turned out pretty good, but I added some shredded carrots and fresh parsley to the recipe. Left out the beef since I don't eat it. Great basic baked penne.

Bagel Melts

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
I made this without the bacon (I know, major part of the sandwich, right?) because I don't eat bacon. I really liked this simple yet quick and easy to prepare bagel melt. I added some garlic powder and fresh ground black pepper on top and used an onion bagel. Seriously delicious!

Banana Cream Cheese Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2012
This reminds me of a banana split. I was originally looking for banana cream, but the strawberry with it intriqued me. I adapted the recipe since I make most things from scratch and don't keep store bought on hand. I made a homemade graham crust in my springform pan. I used one package of crackers, 1 Tablespoon + of pure vanilla, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and 3 Tablespoons melted butter. Then, I whipped up some homemade whipped cream to replace the Cool Whip and went ahead and made the pie. I already pureed some strawberries a few days ago with strawberries and sugar, so I poured that on top, piped extra whipped cream around the edge and sprinkled some ice cream sundae nuts on top. I stored mine in the freezer for a colder, creamier pie instead of the fridge. Excellent.

Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
This was a great recipe I used on a carrot cake. I more than tripled the allspice in mine and the flavors meld together wonderfully. I will use this again, especially on a carrot cake.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
This recipe lives up to its full five star rating on here. This was my first time making a carrot cake from scratch. I followed the recipe with the exception of leaving out the pineapple and raisins because I didn't have any. I baked mine in two round silicone pans and created a layered cake. There is a local over the top place called Extraordinary Desserts in San Diego and I have the cookbook from there, I decided to create an "extraordinary cake" using tips from the cookbook. I make a simple vanilla syrup and while the cakes were still hot from the oven, I poured the syrup over them and allowed them to soak. I assembled the cakes in a cake pan putting an orange cream cheee frosting in the middle as a filling. I froze the cake to allow the filling to set firmly in place. I iced the outide of the cake with an extra allspice-y cream cheese frosting and made an almond/white chocolate crunch for the sides. This cake was phenomenal!

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
Um.....WOW! I didn't except Fiber One cereal the taste good, but I was shocked to find out it does. I couldn't wait to try this recipe with it. I scaled the recipe down and used milk chocolate chips in place of semi-sweet. I like to make haystacks, but I will never make them again unless I have Fiber One. Chocolate + Peanut Butter + Fiber One = LOVE! **Also, if you have issues with the gritty texture try adding more chocolate or less cereal next time. **

Orange C Boost Smoothie

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
This recipe yields nearly 2 cups once blended. I like to make this as an alternative snack, or sometimes for breakfast or to take with me on the go. It does have a rich orange taste. If you prefer you can adjust by adding more almond milk or less concentrate. My husband and I love this quick and easy smoothie and the C boost it provides!

Lorene's Slow Cooker Potato Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
We thought this recipe was fabulous! I haven't brought out my crock pot in seven years, but I did to make this recipe and it will become a staple in our house. I peeled 3 very large russet potatos and chopped them up, I also added some baby carrots to the recipe. I got tired of shuffling around my spices and couldn't find my dill so I added a garlic and onion seasoning I had. I cooked on low for 8 hours but it was perfectly done in 7 hours. The potatos and the carrots have great flavor and melt in your mouth!

Espresso Bark

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
This is a great recipe, only that it calls for too many coffee beans. I only used 1/4 cup in mine and there is plenty is every bite. Make sure you scale back on the beans, but be sure to experiment with different flavors of beans. I used hazelnut cream in mine and it gave the overall flavor and experience more depth.

Michael's Foccacia Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Totally amazing, seriously. Wow. Okay......I used a garlic infused olive oil in mine and I also added a garlic and onion seasoning that I have to the dough. I broke the dough into half because I wanted to make a round foccacia. This recipe easily makes two large rounds of foccacia. As I olied my baking sheet, I sprinkled it with corn meal before placing my dough onto the sheet. The first round I added more garlic and onion seasoning along with a romano, parm. cheese mixture and the garlic oil and salt. The second round I skipped the cheese but added everything else on top and preferred that taste much more. This will become a staple. You can easily change up the flavor like I did by removing the rosemary and adding different seasonings or using an infused oil. Very highly recommend this easy to make and bake recipe!

Chocolate Almond Bark

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
Great basic recipe! I tweaked ours slightly, but it is the same concept. I used dark chocolate so my husband would eat it and left out the shortening. I added a sprinkle on cinnamon across the top as it is drying before I cut the bark.

Non-Alcoholic New Years Eve Punch

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2012
I was searching for orange and ginger ale recipes this morning and came across this one. I decided to make it because it is relatively easy and quick. I used frozen orange concentrate and made the juice in my blender. I poured the juice into a glass and added the ginger ale to it. The cherries of course sink to the bottom on the glass but they are rather delicious to eat at the end. I scaled this recipe back to two servings and it would be great to make for a party.
