Bifana

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2007
Fantabulous recipe! I just cooked it tonight for the first time and it got raves all the way around the table. A few alterations I made: I prefer to cook the tenderloin to 140 degrees instead of 155, it's a safe temperature and so much more succulent that way. Before I cook the pork I soak it in a Ziploc for an hour in six cups of water with 3/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup table salt. Instead of rhubarb, I used fresh cranberries in the chutney. And I paired the tenderloin with mango couscous, and a bowl of pan-fried bok choy and collard greens in a coconut-milk cream sauce. Holy Mahoney it was good!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2007
Superb! I didn't find it too sweet at all, in fact I added some chunks of Hershey's Special Dark chocolate and two teaspoons of vanilla extract. Delicious.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
This was good, but really garlicky. Not date food. You've been warned.

Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
I don't hand out five-star ratings for everything but this recipe deserves it, hands down. One of the best soups I ever made. I didn't think it had too much dill at all, just the right amount in fact. I floated a thin slice of lemon on top before serving. This soup got rave reviews all the way around the dinner table. I'll definitely make it again.

Spaghetti Squash I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Wasn't as wowed by this recipe as I thought I'd be -- maybe I was expecting too much because of all the hype. Still, my boyfriend loved it, so who knows? I thought it could have used some more spices and another veggie (maybe some zucchini?).

Crawfish Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2008
Incredibly tasty for such a simple dish. I did half Old Bay, half cayenne and it was just spicy enough.

This came out a little dry. I'd add more sour cream next time.

Italian Kale

Reviewed: May 11, 2009
The dish that made me fall in love with kale. I cook a batch, eat half, but the other half in a Tupperware and eat it later for a snack. Lovely.

Spicy Vegan Potato Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2009
Better than chicken! I just threw a whole buncha stuff in there that I wanted to use: potatoes, chick peas, green peas, carrots. Then I increased the spices because of all the extra shtuff. I think I'm in Delhi.

Mama's Best Broiled Tomato Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2009
Not bad, kind of like a warm, cheesy BLT. I'd use less vinegar in the marinade, it was overpowering, and about two-thirds as much of the mayo mixture.

Spiced Slow Cooker Applesauce

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2009
Woah! Really delish but more of a dessert than a side dish with all that sugar. If you're using this as a side for pork chops, halve the sugar. If you're using it as a base for a scoop of vanilla ice cream and crumbled graham crackers (YUM), make as is.

Simple Kale Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Not bad but not great. The flavors don't blend much, this is essentially broth with several different individual components floating in it. I added sauteed onions.
