Papaya Surprise Smoothie

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
Used blueberries instead of strawberries, and added a fruit juice blend instead of the milk. Oh, keep a banana in the freezer for this - it really makes it great!

Panang Curry with Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2012
I played around with the amounts to make it easier for me. I had a 5oz can of the curry paste and used about half (stored the rest in airtight container for next use) and just 1 whole can of light coconut milk. Like the "old dude at the Asian market" said, I sauteed 2 cloves garlic in oil, added paste, added about 1 lb. thighs, 2 diced celery stalks, 1 T. brown sugar, 1 T. fish sauce, skipped the kaffir lime leaves n chilies, did add handful snow peas. Didn't have any basil but next time will not be so lazy. Loved over jasmine rice!

Chicken and Garlic

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
I had skinless boneless thighs on hand, which I cut into strips, not exactly bite-size. Browned in 2 batches, then decided to add 2 med chopped onions. Then at least double the garlic (more the better!) plus the zest from 1 lime and 1 lemon, which I used for the juice (why just use 2 T? makes more sauce). Great easy dinner. I served with a rice/lentil mix, but white rice would be good too.

Sherry Sour Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
This came out good - although I too made some changes. I added a Goya seasoning packet, and since I didnt have fresh herbs, I only used dried. I left out the additional butter, only used the sherry to deglaze then added the sour cream. I didnt miss it - it was great over white rice.

Wow, this was really good! I used leftover cranberry sauce instead of the applesauce and it came out great!

Simple Malaysian Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
So simple, yet so good! I took another reviews advice and added a few things to the marinade: a splash of lemon juice (lime would be great also) and a tiny bit of jalapeno (I didnt want it too hot) and some cilantro. Then, when I was stir-frying the chicken, I decided to throw in some sliced onion, green pepper, and even some zuccini I had sitting in the crisper. Then for the ultimate in laziness, I didnt even bother making more white rice; I just threw in some leftover I had and it was almost like a fried rice plate. More cilantro and green onion to top. It was really delicious!

Chicken Adobo II

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
I used boneless skinless chicken thighs, and although not in the recipe, I added an onion and about half a chopped red pepper I had on hand. Also, I put back the garlic towards the end, mainly because I love garlic and hate to throw out food! I steamed some white rice in the rice cooker and used the steamer basket to make some broccoli too, just for extra veggie benefits. Delicious!

Thai Green Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2008
Really good, didnt have green onions, so used a regular one, plus added a sliced red pepper and some mushrooms I had on hand. May use slightly less curry paste next time (I didnt measure carefully - verrry hot!) All in all, a keeper. Dont forget the white rice!

Speedy Spaghetti

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
Seemed to taste better than the regular way of making spaghetti - the sauce really gets in there and flavors it! Plus one less pot to wash!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2007
Loved this easy recipe! I added one sliced onion for fun and some frozen peas for color. Definitely going into the regular rotation. White rice is a must to go with this dish...
