Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2008
Not a bad sauce, although a bit heavy due to the mayo. Works well on white fish too. Wish I had some yogurt around, as some others have suggested. Try adding a splash of dry white wine and a splash of lemon for a slightly fancier taste.

Beth's Scalloped Cabbage

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2008
It's plain-jane mac and cheese, but with cabbage instead of mac. Tastes fine.

Fennel in Wine and Honey

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2007
I don't know. This just isn't that good. It isn't BAD, either. I used what I suspect is a too-wide saucepan and the liquid mainly evaporated out, leaving very bland fennel resting on some thick overcooked sauce that honestly isn't anything to write home about. I would give it a three, but I'll go with a four to account for potential user error. Word of caution - use a narrow saucepan so that your fennel gets to steep in the liquid for longer than mine did.

French Baguettes

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2007
Great! An easy, fast recipe for simple, tasty bread. The best thing about this recipe is that it's completely modifiable. I used 1/3 all purpose flour, and 2/3 white-whole-wheat flour (King Arthur). Then, when the dough was separated and rolled out, just before forming loaves, I added different spices to each loaf. Since I increased the volume of the recipe to make more, we have four little baguettes now - one with rosemary inside and sea salt on top, one with olive tapenade inside, one with garlic, basil and oregano, and one plain. I don't have a bread machine either, but I make sourdough varieties by hand all the time. This one really doesn't need a bread machine. My advice: experiment and have fun!

Blackened Tilapia with Secret Hobo Spices

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
I never would have thought to put celery on fish. I don't know why, though, because it works very well! I often cook for myself - in this case I just took a random amount of the spices listed, with a bit of an emphasis on the cayenne and the celery, and did one tilapia fillet, pan-fried in a bit of butter. The spice mixture is really awesome. I put a lot of salt in it, but sometimes that's tasty.

Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2007
Awesome! The first pumpkin pie I made without condensed milk, and it was worth it. Definitely add more spices, as many have suggested: I put in 1tsp ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, and 2tsp vanilla extract. I also subbed out maybe 1/4 cup honey and put in 1/4 cup molasses, which worked surprisingly well. A word of caution though - I always baked my pie pumpkin on a cookie sheet with water on it. If you do it this way, this recipe is kind of soupy and needs longer to bake.

No Roll Pie Crust I

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2007
This makes a decent pie crust. Honestly, pie crust is just better with shortening or lard, but I will keep using this recipe for health reasons. I made pumpkin pie with it. In order to get the crust to hold to the walls of my no-stick pie pan, I had to chill the pan with the dough in it for 15 minutes or so, and then push it up the sides. After chilling it kept its form well.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2007
Great recipe! Very adaptable too. I actually put in about 2/3 cup banana, use 1 cup brown sugar, 1/3 cup honey, and 1/4 cup white sugar. Swapped half the oil out for melted butter. Added nutmeg and ginger. All those modifications, but followed the directions, and it is awesome. Going back for another piece now!

Crispy Fried Fish

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2007
Fantastic fried fish! The best better I've made. In a hugely surprising turn of events, this recipes works with haddock. I would have given it six stars, but the recipe doesn't come with tartar sauce. Imagine my dismay when I went to make some, and discovered that I had no sweet relish.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2007
This recipe is delicious. I have two suggestions to improve it though. First, I used fresh peaches from my boss's peach tree - some of them were quite under-ripe - and the recipe still came out very sweet. I will definitely make this again, but I will use a bit less sugar in the fruit and in the topping. Second, while the topping is super tasty (if a bit sweet), there's not enough of it! It doesn't need to be doubled but maybe 50% more topping would be great.

Methodist or Wesleyan Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2007
This bread is really just delicious. I substituted honey for the sugar, and butter for the shortening and it came out great. You lose the refined sugar and the trans fats that way. It's a really nice, mildly sweet bread that will be great for breakfast-type uses. I also added a little more caraway because this recipe makes FOUR loaves, not two. 12 cups of flour seemed like an awful lot but I diligently followed the recipe, and ended up with a TON of dough. Also, the recipe is missing a key direction: when to add the activated yeast to the other ingredients! I mixed the raisins, flour, and caraway separately. Then I added the yeast to the water/molasses/honey/butter mixture just before adding the flour mixture in parts. So I can recommend doing it that way, because it worked for me!

Chicken Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2007
This was really good and really easy. Took about 20 minutes including prep and cleanup and was very satisfying. I had it with a baked potato topped with greek yogurt, which made a very easy and very tasty meal.
