Hot Chocolate - South American Style

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Very tasty! I think this would be easy to make in the microwave using a glass bowl. It was great to dip sugar cookies in.

Alaskan Spicy Spinach Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2011
Super-yummy! I used low fat sour cream instead of half-and-half and cooked the cheese over a really low heat without a double-boiler. Finished it off by putting half of it in an oven crock and baked it at 400 for five minutes, then broiled it until it was nice and browned on top. Served with blue corn tortilla chips and toasted french bread!

Crescent Pizza Pockets

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
These are super-tasty, but I almost didn't make them because of the fat content... Found a few ways to tone down the fat content, though. I used the low-fat crescent rolls, found turkey pepperoni that has 70% less fat (and I couldn't even tell a difference in taste!), and shredded mozzarella made with 2% low-fat milk. I made two batches of them and six people demolished them in about five minutes after they were out of the oven! Will definitely be making this again (soon).

BBQ Chicken Crescents

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
This was quite delish and worked well as an easy party food! I used the low-fat crescent rolls, baked chicken breast (seasoned with salt, black pepper, course ground mustard, a sprinkle of apple cider vinegar and Stubb's spicy BBQ), sharp cheddar made with 2% low fat milk and Stubb's spicy BBQ. I had an easier time spooning the mixture onto the wide end of the rolls and getting them into a nice, pretty shape like that. Will definitely make again, so nice and versatile!

Grilled Chicken with Rosemary and Bacon

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
This was absolutely delicious! Made the breasts as the recipe directed, but made some thighs using some garlic grill shaker seasoning I had instead of the garlic powder and they turned out great as well. Served these with a sauce made of two parts dijon mustard and one part honey BBQ sauce. Yum, yum, yum!

Rhubarb Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2010
This cheesecake was amazing! I made it for a movie night during my weekend of rhubarb-madness. The shortbread-like crust was tasty on its own and I'll probably be putting that tasty sour cream topping on all of my cheesecakes from now on!!! I used half organic sugar and half raw sugar instead of white sugar, and I used 50/50 whole wheat flour and organic unbleached instead of regular all-purpose.

Aunt Norma's Rhubarb Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2010
Great recipe! These muffins are nice and crunch on top, super-moist inside and full of great flavor! I tried something a little different and added a 1/2 cup of blueberries to mix. Super-delicious!

Cactus Corn Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2010
These were pretty good. They're very moist and have a nice balance of flavor. The only thing I might do next time is only use half a cup of corn in it. I made half the batch as directed and the other half with a small diced tomato and a small diced jalapeno pepper thrown in. Liked this recipe both ways.

Strawberry Cake from Scratch

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2010
This was a pretty good recipe. The cake came out light and fluffy and was delicious with a cream cheese frosting. Be careful not to open up the oven while they're baking until they're done, or they will fall and get dense, as I learned when I made the first batch (after carefully measuring the sifted flour and beating the egg whites). The only negative about this recipe is that the flavor of the gelatin can be a little abrasive. I think I'm going to try and switch to a recipe that only uses fresh strawberries for flavoring.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2010
These were the hit of my sister's graduation party! I made sure to cream the sugar and butter together EXTREMELY well and they came out so amazingly moist and delicious without any changes at all to the recipe. I really enjoyed these with no changes, but after frosting a few, my sister tried the frosting and said it was too tart for her, so I added another cup of sifted powdered sugar. The sweeter, slightly stiffer frosting was great as well, and it was her party, so she could have her cupcakes how she wanted them! =)

Pineapple Chicken Tenders

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2010
My family and I really liked this recipe, but it was still just a tab bit on the sweet side for me to give it a full five stars. Definitely something different and we'll be making this again in the future!

Onigiri - Japanese Rice Balls

Reviewed: May 20, 2010
A good friend of mine that I met through anime conventions years ago was having a graduation party, and I knew a bunch of the anime crew would be there, so I thought I would make something fun as a snack! I came across this recipe after watching Fruits Basket with a friend and we decided it would be perfect. Made the first few rice balls using the recipe as-is, though we couldn't find bonito flakes, so we used some tuna salad, chicken salad and avocado instead. After making some of the plain rice ones, we elyssa's advice and added some rice vinegar, sugar and salt to the rice. The smell kind of scared us at first, but after tasting them, we were glad we did it! Both versions of the recipe get five stars from everyone at the party!

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2010
I managed to get away with only using 6 lemons and only a cup of fresh lemon juice by boiling the leftover lemon flesh and peels with the water for a few minutes, then straining it out =) Yum!

Boxty

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
Made this for the recipe group this week and didn't think it was too bad! Made the first three boxties using just a dash of salt and pepper seasonings and they were okay. Those ones were good if you wanted to put toppings on them. After those three, I threw in about 1/2 tsp garlic salt, a clove of minced garlic, 1/2 tsp onion powder, 1/2 tsp coarse ground black pepper and some dried parsley to add a little bit of color since we were having them with with our St. Patrick's Day dinner. Pretty delish by themselves, with a dollop of sour cream or a little smear of butter.

Kickin' London Broil with Bleu Cheese Butter

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2010
Wow, this was just amazing! I think this may be the best dish I've ever made! The only thing I changed was using two "London Broil" cuts of lamb (I was gonna buy the beef, but the lamb was on sale and had the dish name in it!) and I added some extra chives into the bleu cheese butter. I seared the lamb on a really hot pan with olive oil to caramelize the outside. It was amazingly delish! Served with blackened asparagus and a spinach salad with sauteed red onions and clambshell mushrooms. I just can't gush enough!

Roasted Red Pepper and Goat Cheese Frittata

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2010
I made this for dinner tonight to try something different and as part of the recipe group, and actually found it quite tasty! Made a few changes though. 1 1/2 red bell peppers that I roasted gave me about 1 1/4 cup of chopped red pepper, so I threw it all in. Also added about 3/4 cup sliced baby bella mushrooms that needed to be used, spiced the potatoes with paprika and red pepper flakes, used skim milk instead of heavy cream and added the fresh chopped basil to the finished product after broiling. Basil's flavor cooks right out of it if it's cooked too long! I had to cook this in a smaller pan since I don't have a cast iron skillet, so I cut back a bit on the potatoes, but left everything else the same (next time I think I'll throw some red onion in as well!). The creaminess of the goat cheese really made this dish shine; make sure you let it get nice and brown before taking it out of the oven! I think it will be a new family favorite!

Chantal's New York Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
Loved it! Made it for a retirement party here at the office and everyone was just raving about it! I've made plenty of cheesecakes before, but never a "New York" style cheesecake, per se. I cut the recipe down by a fourth and did everything pretty much as it says and it turned out perfectly! Used low fat cream cheese, and a 50/50 mix of sugar and splenda and the cake was still rich and delicious! Do yourself a favor and follow the directions =)

Summer Berry Parfait with Yogurt and Granola

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
Absolutely wonderful! You can add a little jazz by mixing 1 1/2 tsp - 1 tbs of honey to the yogurt before you start layering! Adds a little sweetness =) If you use local honey, it also helps with your allergies!
