Orange Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
I added yellow onion to this stir fry and used red pepper instead of bean sprouts to add color. And since I was serving this over rice, I made twice as much sauce (as I usually do with stir fry recipes). It was tasty enough to be a keeper recipe to make again - but next time with the chow mein noodles!

Curried Scrambled Egg

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
These are very good. A simple way to jazz up scrambled eggs and a good way to use some of the season's first chives from my herb garden!

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2009
I had half of a really nice home-grown sweet potato that I needed to use. Had made sweet potato fries before, but with different seasonings. I added a little garlic powder and salt to the paprika and it was great! Be sure to cut the potatoes in thin sticks and stir several times during baking to make them crispier...

Gingered Tea

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
I just made this tea my "regular" way of pouring boiling water over the tea bag, honey, and ginger. I added the milk after the tea steeped a bit. Found this is to be an unusual taste combination, perhaps because I used Earl Grey tea. I'll try again using black tea, because I did think it was a soothing drink.

Zesty Broccoli and Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
A nice crunchy change from tossed lettuce salads. I had just enough broccoli and cauliflower in the refrigerator to make one serving. I added dried cranberries and ate the salad with crackers. Thanks for a tasty lunch!

Fruit Dip VI

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
This is so good it's hard to believe there's just 3 ingredients in it...I did add just a TINY amount of milk to make it what I thought was a good dipping consistency. Perfect with Granny Smith apples and walnuts.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2009
Even though I doubled the sauce ingredients, I still wanted more sauce to eat over rice. So I added about 1/4 cup chicken broth and 1 tsp cornstarch. That decreased the "stickiness" but made it more "rice-friendly" and did not reduce the delicious flavor. To add a hint more flavor, I included a small amount of Oriental Five Spice.

Egg Salad/Cucumber Sandwiches

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2009
I added the peeled, seeded, and chopped cucumber to the egg salad mix. Also used a bit of dill for extra seasoning because it goes really well with cucumber

Cocoa Quickies

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2009
Can't beat these for a quick and easy treat to satisfy a chocolate sweet tooth! I guess I was in a hurry and ate some too soon as the oatmeal was dry & chewy and they didn't hold together well. Keeping them in the refrigerator overnight seemed to be the solution to that problem... Instead of coconut I used raisins. mmmm-chocolate covered raisins

Mama's Best Broiled Tomato Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
The brief marinade of the tomatoes really adds to the flavor and juiciness, but toasting the bread prior to broiling keeps it from absorbing too much juice. I used Roma tomatoes from the grocery store (actually quite good for winter tomatoes) and thick potato bread. I will definitely make this again with garden-ripe tomatoes.

Tropical Shake

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
I added canned pineapple to the ice cream, orange juice, and a few ice cubes to lighten it up a bit. The taste reminded me a little of those yummy orange creamsicles.

Chicken Cashew Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Use chunks of pineapple in this salad instead of celery and it tastes just like sweet and sour chicken cashew salad. Really good.

T's Sweet Potato Fries

Reviewed: Mar. 1, 2009
Was looking for a recipe with savory seasoning as opposed to sweet so I was quite glad to find this. These tasty fries were a good side dish for my burger. I rarely use the microwave for cooking, so pre-boiled the cut fries for 4 minutes and baked for 30 minutes.

Hot Ham 'n' Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
Very filling and satisfying with a cup of soup. I followed the suggestion at the bottom of the recipe and used spicy brown mustard mixed with horseradish. Also added a bit of mayo.

Carrot and Raisin Salad I

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
My mother used to make this salad, and I had kind of forgotten about making it for myself until I saw it here. Not a big fan of celery, so used a chopped Braeburn apple instead. I tossed the carrots and apple with lemon juice to keep the color bright before adding the dressing that I thinned with a little milk. A colorful, healthy, and tasty salad that's easy to put together...

Cumin Turkey Burgers

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
Definitely lots of flavor in these. A great way to enjoy a burger AND enjoy the benefits of low-fat turkey. A slice of cheese melted on top and barbecue sauce made them extra good.

Orange Romaine Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2009
The red wine vinegar, green onions, and oranges work perfectly together. I did modify the proportions of the dressing a bit, using about equal amounts of vinegar & oil, and slightly more honey. After I sectioned the orange, I squeezed the remaining juice and added it to the dressing.

Chinese Pepper Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
Loved the sweetness of the apple juice, but thought that the flavor of this pepper steak needed a slight boost from something else, too. So I ended up adding about 2 Tblsps of soy sauce and extra garlic. I WILL be making this again.

Peanut Banana Waldorf

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2009
I thought that the simplicity and taste of this salad was really great; however the dressing of just peanut butter and mayo was much too gloppy and thick! I added milk until it reached a smooth, nice dressing consistency. I also tossed the apples and bananas with lemon juice prior to mixing with the dressing.

Popovers for Two

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2009
These "popped" quite high and were very tasty; however the popovers were slightly underbaked. Next time I'll follow the baking times given in a recipe I've used many times before: 20 minutes at 425, 20 minutes at 350, and 10 minutes with the oven turned off.
