Green Bean Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2012
Great sweet and sour type salad! I wouldn't recommend using the canned peas, they are mushy enough even before marinating. I used frozen peas straight out of the bag, no need to thaw. I prefer yellow or red peppers over green, so that's what I used. I would make this again, it's quick and easy to throw together.

Chicken Riggies

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2012
Outstanding dish, so flavorful..a little spicy and spot on! I had a few turkey cutlets to use up, so I went with that instead of the chicken and I had half & half on hand so I used that. I served this with shaved parm cheese on top and a nice green salad. We loved this!

Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2012
We loved this fresh tasting egg salad! I wanted to do a bigger batch so I doubled everything except the lemon juice, kept that at half a lemon. I did add a stalk of celery finely diced for a little crunch, perfect, I like how the lemon makes it a little 'spritzy'. For those who don't enjoy lemon, choose another recipe!

Spring Biscotti

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
Just incredible! The only change I made was to use dried cherries that needed using up, the biscotti is the perfect texture and looks so pretty. I made a double batch for a teacher supper on conference day, and a couple of the teachers tracked down which parent made the biscotti and asked for the recipe!

Milly's Oatmeal Brownies

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
These are amazing! So quick and easy to throw together and wonderfully moist and chewy. I added milk chocolate chips, no nuts or raisins since they were made for a function and I was worried about nut allergies and raisin haters! I left only one on the table for my hubby and he was ticked that's all he got! Excellent. Addendum: I made these again today, and once again they deserve 5 stars! This time I put in a handful of chopped walnuts and some mini chocolate chips. I love these with or without the optional items. Thank you Milly for sharing this recipe, love these 'brownies'!

Cosmo-Style Pomegranate Martini

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2012
I was pleasantly surprised by this martini, delicious! I don't enjoy sweet or fruity drinks much so I was a bit skeptical of this one, but it is fresh and tart. Oh, it's quite potent too! I'll be making these often, thanks Kim!

Onion Baked Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2012
When I need to get dinner in the oven quickly, this is the recipe I'll use! I didn't have onion soup mix, so I used a half packet of italian salad dressing mix and it was so good. I used chicken thighs and drumsticks...so moist!

Fiber One® Chocolate-Peanut Butter Haystacks

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
These are pretty good, my DD loves them, DH isn't too fond of them and he's got the biggest sweet tooth in the house! After melting the chocolate and peanut butter, I tasted it and thought it needed something else. I stirred in a cup of white chocolate chips and the flavor was greatly improved. I decorated the stacks with a few white chocolate chips for color.

Rich and Creamy Potatoes Au Gratin

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
Celeste...these potatoes are so yummy! Quick to put together and so creamy, my family loved this dish. I nearly broke the bank on the Gruyere but it was so worth it!

Greek Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2012
I found a deal on lamb shoulder chops and without having a clue what to do with them, I snatched them up! Luckily I found this recipe. With the exception of using chicken stock in place of lamb stock, I followed the directions to a T. Just before adding the green beans, I tasted the broth and added more oregano and cinnamon and also a bit of brown sugar to cut the acid of the tomatoes. I gave the green beans 30 minutes because we like them a bit soft in stews. Surprisingly, it was a hit with the family! Next time I'll pay more attention to trimming the fat off those chops! Even better..this would be great with lamb stew meat!.

Raspberry Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
This was so-so. I don't think I'd make it again without some significant modifications. I followed the recipe and found that the crust was dry, crumbly and lacking in flavor. Perhaps some cinnamon would help here, but to not sure how to correct the dryness, except for reducing the baking time. We liked the filling but there needs to be more than 1/2 cup jam. The topping needs to have cinnamon added too. I think I'll look for another recipe.

Goat Cheese and Arugula over Penne

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2012
I was looking for a recipe to use up some wonderful goat cheese I had. This recipe was suggested to me and I'm so glad I tried it!. The flavor of this recipe is outstanding, and more importantly my husband and teen daughter both loved it (and they think they don't like goat cheese)! I sauteed some sliced baby bella mushrooms that I had on hand with the garlic, and subbed chopped roasted red pepper for the tomatoes. This dish came together in less than 15 minutes total, which is another reason I'm giving it 5 stars! Don't hesitate to make this recipe, it's awesome!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
If you like fudge-like brownies, these are the ones for you! They are intensely chocolatey, fudgy and a little gooey from the chocolate chips...a chocoholic's dream for sure! I followed the recommendation of using half white and half brown sugar, this may have given these brownies that extra depth of flavor to send them over the top! Yummy!

Cowboy Tacos

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2012
Well, these are pretty darn tasty! My husband was stunned when he saw me mixing the preserves into the pan but was quick to say "these are really good..I'm surprised"! We didn't think they were too sweet, in fact there is just a touch of sweetness. Just be sure to use only the amount called for regarding the apricot preserves. I would recommend trying the cubed pork for some 'bite'. I used leftover shredded pork that I had on hand and by the time everything else was added, it was a bit mushy, so I would think the minced pork would be the same. I served these with the usual taco toppings.

Turkey Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
This recipe has great potential. I doubled the recipe since there were 3 of us but instead of using just 2 tsp. curry, I used a heaping tablespoon. I also used increased the other seasonings generously. Still, more curry would have been welcome. This finished dish is also lacking some color, it's not very attractive (but this did not affect my rating), so next time I make it I think I'll add either some diced red bell pepper or diced carrots to the saute. I note that another reviewer suggested adding golden raisins, that's a great idea. My family loved this, my 14 y.o. told me to be sure and make it again.

Antipasto Squares

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
These were okay, I got mixed reviews at the party I brought them to. Most of the guys liked it, but the rest of us thought it was way too salty. I like the idea of this recipe, but I would choose some lower salt meats next time.

Sweet and Hot Apple Slow Cooker Pork

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2012
I would make this again, the pork is succulent, it's an easy recipe, the sweet potatoes are very tender and the sauce really doesn't need thickening. It's lightly spiced from the chipotle, but it is missing something. A little more salt and pepper helped, some cinnamon...still not quite right. I'll figure out what it is the next time I make it! I would recommend not adding the apples until about half way through the cooking time so they keep their shape a bit.

Applesauce Raisin Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 22, 2012
My husband went nuts over this cake! It's very flavorful and moist, and it really doesn't need any frosting. I think of it as a 'snack' cake, good for lunch boxes and great with a cup of coffee for breakfast. I used 2 cups white whole wheat flour and 2 cups AP and it was still a very moist cake and slightly healthier version. I cut back on the sugar to 1 and 2/3 cup, still sweet enough for us. I also added a bit of salt. I thought maybe I should add some vanilla, but it is just fine without it. Next time I might bake it in a jelly roll pan...this cake is very tall and takes near an hour to bake. In spite of that extra cooking time, the cake did not dry out on the edges or the top at all. One more thing...I would suggest baking this a day ahead...it is so much better today and it slices much easier too. Love this cake!
