Swiss Chard with Garbanzo Beans and Fresh Tomatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2008
I was skeptical of this recipe, but I made it and found it to be very good. In lieu of the garlic clove, I used 1 garlic scape. Instead of the shallot and green onions, I used three spring onions. This dish is really very tasty!

Curried Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2008
I made the recipe pretty much as described but felt that it was lacking some zip.

Strawberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
This is an excellent recipe. Be aware that the batter is thick and sticky. Get enough of it on the bottom of the pan to cover. Then dollop the topp of the filling with the batter and don't worry too much if the top is not covered, but do cover the top very well with the topping - which turns sweet-crunchy! My only remark (and not complaint) is that the coffee cake is so good that it overwhelms the filling - even though I used a quart of freshly sliced strawberries to make the cake. This cake is sure to be a crowd pleaser!

Strawberry Orange Rhubarb Cake

Reviewed: May 18, 2008
Quite delicious! This was the first thing I ever made with rhubarb, and I was impressed. I didn't have oranges at home so I substituted lemon zest for the orange. I think the dish came out perfectly. The crust was evenly brown, sweet, and crisp. The fruit/sauce was mildly sweet and very tasty. Thanks for a very nice recipe!

Roasted Asparagus With Thyme

Reviewed: May 14, 2008
This was excellent. I think this will now be my favorite asparagus recipe. It's simple to make, elegant to serve, and tasty to eat!

Passover Brownie Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
I thought these were okay, but not very impressive as a bring-along dessert. I don't like the beige color of the crust on top, nor do I like the fact that it's hard to tell exactly when they should be taken out of the oven. The people to whom i served these were arguing about whether or not they had been baked long enough (I did the 35 minute thing)! besides, I like cake-like brownies anyway. They tasted okay, but I think I'd rather move on to another Passover brownie recipe.

Baked Parmesan Perch

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2008
I didn't like this recipe at all. When the fish was done, it looked heavily spiced, but it tasted surprisingly bland. Rather than being crisp after baking, it was crumbly. Before eating the fish, I sprinkled some garlic powder on each piece simply to give the dish a bit more pizzaz. Sorry. This recipe was just not for me. :(

To Die For Garlic Feta Pate

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2008
OMG! This is to die for. I made it exactly as you said. The chives were freshly cut from my garden. I went a bit heavy on the chives and the hot sauce (I use Louisiana Crystal). The only thing *seriously* wrong with this recipe is that I wanted to eat too much of it. :) I can't wait for my husband to come home and try it.

Cabbage Jambalaya

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2007
I'll give it five stars, but I changed almost everything after reading the reviews of others. I substituted knockwurst for smoked sausage. I added 4 cloves of garlic instead of 1. I used a 28 oz. can of whole tomatoes, chopped in their juice. I omitted garlic salt and instead used 1 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1 jalapeno pepper (finely minced), 1 tsp oregano, and 1/2 tsp thyme. I browned the onions, garlic and celery in some oil before adding the meat. I browned the ground beef and knockwurst before adding the rest of the ingredients. I brought the mixture to a boil, lowered the flame, and simmered the mixture covered for 25 minutes. When I was done, my daughter and husband gave this dish high praise by eating their entire portions. My daughter is a picky eater who at first tried to pull out pieces of the cabbage. When I next look up, her plate was empty! :D

Glazed Meatloaf I

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2007
I changed the recipe a bit. It came out fabulous. I used 1 Tbsp of lemon juice for the glaze and none for the meat. I put in one whole onion (chopped), 1 clove garlic (minced), 1/2 cup fresh parsley (chopped), 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp pepper. I omitted the bouillon granules. My husband and I loved this recipe. I was surprised that my husband did because I used the 1/3 cup brown sugar, and he would usually complain if I add anything sweet to meat dishes. There were no complaints tonight; only praise. :-)

Cranberry Sauce I

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
Loved this recipe! It's a bit more fun to make then the boring old sugar-water-cranberry recipe. It's easy and comes out very spicy and good. I took the suggestions of others and did 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup light brown sugar thing. I added 1/4 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp orange zest to the orange juice before adding the cranberries. I cooked the concoction for a full 10 minutes after it came to a boil. I poured it into a nice white serving dish. It set up immediately upon cooling. I can't wait to serve it for Thanksgiving. Thanks, Toni!

Jasmine's Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
I don't eat bacon so I substituted kosher hot dogs, sliced diagonally. I cut back on the salt and pepper unintentionally, but it came out delicious. It was a hit!

Salmon Loaf

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
I think this recipe tastes great. I added 1 chopped spring onion and a few chopped celery leaves. However, even though I let the top get crispy and brown, the inside was mooshy. I didn't like that. :-(

Brussels Sprouts with Pecans

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2007
My husband and I liked this recipe very much. My son didn't - but he doesn't like brussel sprouts. The next time I make this dish, I'll probably add a bit more butter, but otherwise it was perfect.

Holiday Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2007
What a wondrous combination of ingredients. This chicken salad shouts "Party!" The only change I made was to use plain salt instead of seasoned salt (because I had no seasoned salt). It's wonderful and so easy to make. This recipe is sure to impress your family and friends!

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2007
My husband and I found this recipe extremely good. I did what someone else suggested and cut the salt in half. I wouldn't make any other changes to it. It's perfect the way it is!

Summer Vegetable Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2007
This was great! What I did that was different from the recipe. As someone previously suggested, I cut the ingredients in the salad dressing in half. That amount was perferct for the amoutn of fresh veggies in the salad. I used olive oil instead of vegetable oil...which I usually do in all fresh salads which include tomatoes. I didn't have cherry tomatoes, so I cut up fresh tomatoes to equal once cup. I stirred that dressing really well to incorporate the garlic flavor before I added it to the mixed fresh vegetables. The results were super-yummy!

Lima Bean Medley

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2007
I'll give this the highest rating for several reasons. The first is that I was able to mostly use all the produce (basil, tomatoes, corn, lima beas, onions) that I *just* brought home from a farm marke. The second is that there was no funky taste that I usually associate with lima beans. The third is that it is both healthy and good. The only changes I made were to add just a tiny bit of water to the veggies so they would steam and not burn. I also let it simmmer for an extra 5 minutes because some of my lima beans were very large. No uniform size lima beans when they come fresh from the farm! :-) Thanks for the recipe.

Plum Tomatoes with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2007
I liked this recipe a lot because I love the taste of balsamic vinegar. However, the rest of my family complained about the prominent vinegar taste. I made this recipe as written except for the basil.

Fresh Fig Cookies

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2007
This recipe came out perfectly as it was written. I baked the cookies for exactly 16 minutes, taking them out of the oven when they were lightly browned on the outside. I cooled them on the tray for a few minutes before removing them to cool further. They were delicious, soft on the inside, crunchy on the outside - just like I like them! This is a keeper recipe and a fun thing to do with fresh figs. I mean, after all, how many people know a fig recipe for cookies?!
