Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2012
Very quick and easy to make and quite tasty. A nice mix of tart and sweet flavors, though I might make it just slightly sweeter next time, perhaps by adding whipped cream as a topping. I used 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk, as other reviewers suggested, instead of measuring out 3 cups. I will definitely make this again!

Ricotta Gnocchi

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Made only the gnocchi (not the sauce) and it was great. Very filling and tasty. Boiled the gnocchi for 3-4 minutes instead of 1-2 and it was a good texture.

Fast and Easy Tofu Lo-Mein

Reviewed: May 24, 2011
We fried the tofu in olive oil with a splash of chili sesame oil and then added some soy sauce once the tofu started turning brown. We also only used one packet of ramen noodle seasoning to cut the sodium a bit. We added Sriracha hot sauce to our individual dishes. Very tasty and easy!

Mama's Asian Chicken and Rice

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
I liked the spiciness and mixture of flavors in the sauce, but it was way too sweet for my taste. Next time I'll cut a lot of the brown sugar. I doubled the sauce and added broccoli and we ate it with brown rice.

Tofu Peanut Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
I softened 3 cloves of garlic, a quarter of a large white onion, and a 1/2 teaspoon of minced ginger in oil in a wok. Then I added broccoli, red and green pepper, mushrooms, and some sliced water chestnuts, and cooked them in some jarred peanut sauce. In a separate pan, I fried the breaded tofu cubes until they were crispy and turning brown, then lifted them out of the oil with a slotted spoon and added them to the veggies in the wok. I drizzled on more peanut sauce and added some Sriracha chili sauce, and stirred everything up. We ate it with brown rice. I had never had tofu cooked this way and I really enjoyed it. I wish that it had stayed crispy after I added it to the veggies and sauce, but it kept a nice flavor.

Peanut Butter and Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
I doubled this recipe and used skim milk instead of soy. I added two heaping spoonfuls of peanut butter instead of measuring it out. I added a drizzle of honey at the end and stirred it in for a subtle sweetness. Very yummy and creamy! The only problem I had was that after I froze the bananas, as suggested by other reviewers, it was difficult to remove the peels for some reason. The bananas may have been a bit too ripe.

Coconut Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
Very good! I took the suggestions of some prior reviews and pressed the block of tofu under a cutting board with a dictionary for about an hour, and then I cubed it and fried it in a bit of olive oil. I used 2 tablespoons instead of 2 teaspoons of Sriracha chile sauce. It was VERY hot. I couldn't find bok choy, so I used baby spinach, which was fine. I also didn't have fresh basil or fresh ginger, so I used dried. The ginger was fine, but I wasn't crazy about dried basil and I think fresh would be much better. I served it over brown rice. Overall, the dish was very tasty and quick and easy to make!

Louisiana Crab Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2011
I made this for a New Orleans themed dinner party and my guests loved it! I made it with canned lump crab and I used 1 full teaspoon of Tabasco. When I make it again, I will probably use 2 teaspoons because I like my food hot. I loved that it was creamy and warm and I served it with Club crackers.

Hot Spiced Cider

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2010
I made this cider for Thanksgiving. I reduced the brown sugar to 1/8 cup, as recommended. I used a crock pot instead of a coffee maker. I tied up the whole spices in cheese cloth and put the ground nutmeg, salt, sugar, and oranges straight into the cider with the pouch of whole spices I created. I cooked the cider on high for a couple of hours until it was steaming hot, and then turned it to low when it was almost time to start serving it. I stirred it a few times while it was heating up. I took the cheese cloth pouch out at the end, but left the oranges in.

Ramen Noodle Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2010
I thought this soup ended up tasting really good and it was very easy to make. I doubled the recipe and made a few changes. I used 3 cans of vegetable broth and 2 packages of ramen noodles (omitting the seasoning packets). I couldn't find chili oil, but I did find a chili sesame oil blend, so I used 1 tsp. of that. I used ginger paste instead of minced ginger. I didn't use any green onions, but I did use sliced mushrooms and a frozen stir fry mix with sugar snap peas, green beans, red peppers, celery, broccoli, onions, and water chestnuts. I also used dehydrated garlic slices while the broth and noodles were boiling, and added some more when I added the veggies. I put some Sriracha chili sauce on the table so everyone could add as much as they wanted to their individual bowls. The flavor was good without the hot sauce, but I thought it added a nice heat to the soup!

Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2009
This recipe makes yummy and very strong margaritas! I used 6oz. water and 6oz. of Sprite Zero instead of 12oz. of water, and I used Corona Lite for the beer. I made this for a party and I had to water my own glasses down a bit, but several guests said they liked it the way it was.

Fish Tacos with Honey-Cumin Cilantro Slaw and Chipotle Mayo

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2009
Delicious! The slaw was spicier than I expected, which was great, and the cabbage and tortillas cooled it down. Very refreshing and full of flavor! We ate the tacos with a seasoned rice and beans mix.

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2008
This stir fry is really great! I added brown sugar to the soy sauce and ended up using more baking powder to thicken the sauce. I also added ground red pepper while I was cooking it, and lots of crushed red pepper to the finished dish because I like my food very spicy. I used broccoli, onion, green pepper, and mushrooms as my vegetables, and chicken broth instead of bouillon and water. Thanks for this great recipe!

Greek Grilled Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
This was SO delicious! I layered in this order: slice of extra sharp cheddar, feta crumbles, thin slice of tomato, two strips of red onion, one more slice of sharp cheddar. Having cheese on both sides kept the sandwich together while flipping. Also, after I buttered the bread I sprinkled the butter with parmesan cheese. I served the sandwiches with tomato soup, which I dipped my sandwich in. YUM! Thanks for this amazing recipe!

Slow Cooker Italian Beef for Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
This was excellent! I followed the recipe as written when I made it for my family, and they absolutely loved it. I served it with sliced pepperoncini peppers as a topping.

Ham Roll Ups II

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2008
I made these for a 4th of July party. I used a 1/2 lb. of ham, and a 1/2 lb. of hard salami instead of a full lb. of ham to mix things up. The guests at the party said that they enjoyed the flavor very much, but that there was too much cheese filling in each one. I just sort of slathered it on while I was making them, so I'll be more careful next time with how much filling I use.

Garlic Parmesan Olives

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
I let the olives sit in the mixture overnight in the fridge and I felt like the cheese got a little chunky. Also, the olive oil flavor was a little too noticable for me.

Washabinaros Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2008
I love chili, and this recipe was great! I made it for some friends and got great reviews. I did think it was too sweet though, and I will significantly reduce the brown sugar next time. I also drained the juice from the last two cans of beans when I made it because I like thick chili, and it worked out well.
