Corn Tomato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
This was surprisingly good! I was amazed that my family liked it. I thought they wouldn't be too crazy about the heavyhandedness of the basalmic vinegar. I think the key to making this salad work well is to use only the best farm-fresh vegetables and to mix the minced garlic, basalmic vinegar and olive oil well before mixing it with the vegetables. I used a green pepper as I didn't have a red one. I definitely will make this recipe again - especially when I have an excess bounty of fresh corn on the cob.

Erin's Indonesian Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2007
Neither my family nor I liked this recipe. We just didn't care for the taste of the peanut sauce. I did substitute chili powder for chili paste as someone else suggested, but otherwise followed the recipe as directed.

London Broil

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
This was absolutely scrumptious! I rarely charcoal grill beef because I don't know how to do it properly, but this cut came out so tender. My family and I loved it. Here are the changes I made to the original recipe - skipped the MSG completely, used salt instead of seasoned salt, used pepper instead of lemon pepper, used 1 Tbsp parsley flakes instead of 4 tsp. chopped fresh parskey, used 1/2 tsp. dried tarragon (that was from my garden!) and 2 tsp. red wine vinegar instead of tarragon vinegar. I marinated the steak in a Ziplock bag for 3 hours then tossed it onto the grill. It was extremely juicy, too. I grilled it to medium (no blood, but still a bit red inside).

Sesame Green Beans

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
It was a bit of trouble to make. I added the garlic and red pepper flakes as others suggested, but I particularly did not like the part when the sesame seeds went flying through the air!

Colorful Bulgur Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
It's colorful and chock full of healthy ingredients. However, it lacked a certain tastiness. I'm not likely to make this recipe again.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2007
Very good recipe with no changes at all. I made these into 22 muffins, baking them for 30 minutes - until the tops were lightly browned. They came out perfectly. When properly cooled, the top was crunchy and the inside texture was very nice. Okay. So I cheated and ate the first one warm and fresh out of the oven. I like the idea of another person who suggested adding a pinch of nutmeg to this recipe. I think I'll do that the next time. In the meantime, I'll simply eat all the ones I've already made...or perhaps I'll share them. There's no way anyone is going to know there is zucchini in these muffins unless they spy a speck of green here and there! :-)

Savory Herb Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
My family loved this recipe! The only changes I made were to omit the onion powder (I didn't have any on hand) and use oil instead of butter (I don't mix meat and dairy). I thought the soy sauce was going to overpower the recipe, but it did not. Very quick to make...plus it's very tasty!

Chocolate Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
I made these cookies exactly as directed. I have no complaints about anything. They came out perfectly and were delicious. I love the texture...crispy edges and soft insides. My only suggestion would be to double this recipe. There were not enough cookies remaining for others after my husband and I started tasting them. :-)

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2007
I thought this recipe was great! Of course, I love foods that are heavy on the garlic. I wondered why sesame seeds were added to a recipe with tahini (also sesame seeds), but it was a nice accent. This is definitely a keeper. I'm a lazy cook so I added the olive oil to the food processor. :-)

Brussels Sprouts with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2007
Changes I made to this recipe: sliced the mushrooms instead of cooking them whole, cooked the brussel sprouts for 10 minutes instead of 15. The vegetables looked nice when served, and my husband liked it. I though they tasted kind of bland but am not sure what was needed to give them more of a zing.

Lemon Turkey with Couscous Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2007
I followed the recipe exactly as written except for roasting the turkey an extra 15 minutes. When I was done, I had a nicely presenting dinner in a serving pan. However, I was somewhat disappointed with the result. I expected both the turkey breast and the couscous to be much more flavorful than they turned out to be. The recipe was easy enough to make, but it still seemed to be lacking a special "zing".

Rugelach

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2006
My husband gave this recipe a 10-star rating. These were very much fun to make, een if a bit time-consuming with having to chill the dough twice. They came out perfectly with a very flakey consistency.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2006
These were good. I made them exactly as written without any problem. I did not use the frosting so that they would not be overly sweet.

Moroccan Salmon Cakes with Garlic Mayonnaise

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2006
This recipe was a disaster!!! All of the cakes fell completely apart (and, yes, the oil was hot enough) and I ended up with a bowl of browned salmon cake hash instead of beautiful patties. :-( Nevertheless, this recipe gets 3 stars instead of 1 star because, when I tasted the "hash", it was delicious. Go figure! I'm takin this "Moroccan Salmon Hash" to a friend's house for a Moroccan dinner tonight. No kidding! P.S. I didn't bother to make the Garlic Mayo. :-)

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
These were excellent. Most of the first batch I made I sent away as a gift! They came out crisp on the outside but soft on the inside and were delicious. I tried to figure out exactly how many minutes they needed and finally settled on 11 minutes as perfect. I needed a bit more than 2 Tbsp of sugar for the finally rollings! :-)

Moist Persimmon Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2006
I made the recipe exactly as stated, baking each tray of cookies for 10 minutes, and they came out perfectly. I was surprised how soft they were, but they were done when I checked the centers. I'd never had persimmons before, but someone gave my husband this fruit. I found this recipe and the rest is history! :-)

Chili Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
My family liked this recipe...although I changed it quite a bit due to lack of items from the ingredient list. I subsituted fresh diced tomatoes and minced garlic for the canned tomatoes with garlic. I substituted fried green chili peppers (from my garden) for canned ones. I substituted one can of black beans and one can of white cannelini beans for the other 3 cans of beans. The result was a very tasty dish which I served on rice and my husband is now eating for breakfast! :-)

Broccoli Bean Bake

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2006
This dish was okay. My son said it tasted "just like vegetables". I didn't have pimentoes, so I chopped a fesh tomato on top of the beans for the red color. Although I drained the broccoli and canned beans well, there was a watery bottom to this dish after it was fully baked. This dish was just not lively enough for my taste. I'm curious as to how others here will like it.

Waldorf Salad II

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2006
Fabulous! I loved not having to peel the apples. I used two different kinds of apples--one had darker green skin than the other, and I used dark raisins for contratin color. I hate measuring lemon juice so I just squeezed in the juice of half a lemon. It worked just fine. I'm serving it for dinner tonight on a bed of shredded iceberg lettuce. I need to stop eating it so there will be some left to serve! :-)
