Thai Peanut Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Delicious! This was a yummy treat. I followed pretty closely but wanted to point out this is pretty thick like a satay dip v a salad dressing. I used it once and was happy but ended up cutting it with way more rice vinegar to make a salad dressing and it was maybe even MORE amazing! Think leftover satay, some fresh greens, red onion and shredded carrot. Wow!!

My Crispy Mashed Potato Pancake

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2013
Delish ... although I simplified for husband and kids and kicked it up for myself. Made 2C mashed plus one egg, 1 TBSP flour for them ... then took last portion or two and added diced ham, cheese and onion plus shredded carrot. A bit sticky but turned out well. Dolloped onto pan and pressed into a patty with the spatula. YUM!

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
AMAZING!! LOVE this recipe and now feel guilty pleasure when we cook out and I eat this while everyone else eats burgers or whatever. Yum! I'm drooling just thinking of it. I have made recipe this way many times but have made tweaks over the years. Now my adapted marinade takes 30 seconds to prep and is easier to flex up or down by mushroom count. PER MUSHROOM, I use 1 TBSP canola oil, 1 TBSP balsamic, 1-2 clove garlic (depending on audience or mood), plus a sprinkle or two (maybe 1 tsp?) of Montreal Steak seasoning (McCormick, I think). Takes no time at all and pop it in to marinate. Only hassle is remembering to make them in advance but it's worth it. If they marinate for less time, they're still good but not DIVINE!! Oh, and leftovers are good cold with other veggies or beans. Often eat with white beans and leftover grilled asparagus or chopped tomatoes with a little balsamic dressing. THANK YOU for submitting and for all the other reviewers' insight!! One of my weekly favorites!

Easy Guacamole

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2013
Easy!! Delicious!! My daughter was so excited she said, "Let's never BUY guacamole again!". Of course you need good avocados but it WAS amazing. I use avocados a lot ... Just slice in "half" (will stop at pit), twist-and-pull to separate, smack kife into pit to anchor in pit and twist-and-pull again to get pit out of second half, then quarter and peel by hand. If avocado is remotely ripe enough for guac, the skin will zip right off easier than a banana peel. Anyway, I followed all of "Annie's" recommendations ... Added cilantro, only juice of 1/2 lime, capful vinegar, garlic salt. I skipped sour cream, scallions and salsa in favor of one slice of onion in tiny dice and 1/4 - 1/2 Roma tomato for color (went light by kids don't like tomato, heavier if you like it). Basically, flavor to taste and you can't go wrong. And, although it was delicious immediately, I was surprised and delighted that was even better after 30 min in fridge. YUMMY!!! First time making guac and I've found the perfect recipe! Thx for sharing!!

Irish Boxty

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2013
My kids loved them ... Me? I need some onion, cheese, or veggies in my potato pancakes but not fair to ding the recipe for that. Not sure why I didn't envision them being so bland. I do like hash browns. I would make this again if I ever buy a mandolin. Meanwhile, I recommend against making them w instant mashed and defrosted shred. Yes, a double shortcut but this was part of a huge meal so needed these quick. My result 3 stars or less. Recipe 3-4 stars. Happy St Patrick's Day!!

Microwave Caramel Popcorn

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2013
YUM!! And so easy! Well, a lot more work than regular popcorn but this was my first attempt attempt at caramel popcorn and it was a hit. I admit I toned down the popcorn to topping ratio a bit to be healthier. I made it 75% strength (3QT popcorn to 1/2 this recipe of toppings). Also toned down the microwave time. I did 15 second at 80% power for each of FOUR turns, shaking each time. Easy enough and yummy for the whole family!

Marshmallow Popcorn Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2012
Delicious!! Added crushed candy canes and a touch of salt. Wrapped in cello they were perfect holiday treat (party favor, token gift, etc.). YUM, YUM, YUM! Minor tweaks: I used 2 TBSP oil to cook popcorn. (BTW, this makes 4 QT so do use a 4QT pan.) I reduced to 5 TBSP butter (more than krispie treat recipe but less than this recipe) and used full 10 oz bag of regular size marshmallows (approx 40 marshmallows, fairly sure this is equivalent to minis called for in this recipe). Also added 1/3-1/2 tsp salt and 1/3-1/2 cup candy cane pieces. YUM! Candy canes, of course, were for the holiday season and salt added the salty-sweet contrast we wanted. I mixed in the largest bowl I own then shaped into balls onto wax paper. Spray or butter the bowl and your hands. This stuff is sticky!! Secret tricks: Melt butter and marshmallows slowly on LOW heat and stir constantly so they have no chance to burn. Also, add 2 tsp milk into melted marshmallows, a tip I picked up on a rice krispie treat recipe here on allrecipes. Makes it all extra creamy. YUM!!

Marshmallow Treats

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2010
I make the recipe on the box (3 TBP butter, 1 pkg marshmallows (about 40 large), 6 cups cereal. Also use the microwave. But this sounds so similar, I'm sure it's great! My two tips: (1) You can make these into shapes by hand (I did hearts for Valentine's), seems easier than cutting them out; and (2) DO NOT use off-brand marshmallows. Totally different results, much harder to work with, at least for shapes. Bummer!

Pumpkin Flax Quickbread

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
Yum, yum, yum. I got applause for this recipe. I added raisins and walnuts (1/3-ish cup each). Whether you like her or not, I was shocked to hear one skeptical family member tell me it looked like something from Martha Stewart! Definitely didn't tell the family it was so healthy before they tasted it. ;)

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
Delicious. I'd give it 5-stars as adapted: Saute together 2-3 TBSP butter, 1 TBSP lemon juice, 3-4 cloves garlic (minced). Top tilapia fillets/ loins and sprinkle with sea salt and pepper. Cook at 400 F for 15-20 minutes. In last 10 minutes, top with bread crumbs and fresh grated parm (more butter if you want it to brown). We're not a big "fish" family and this was an instant favorite!
