Creamed Cucumbers

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2012
I love cucumbers and I followed the recipe to a T, except for the handling of the cucumbers: I cut them in half lengthwise and seeded them, then mixed them with salt, let them sit, spun the moisture out with a salad spinner, then rinsed them, spun them again and patted them dry. The flavor was great, but the dressing was way too runny - definitely wasn't creamy, as I expected from the recipe title. And i know it wasn't the moisture from the cukes that made it runny! :) I think i'll try this again, but add cream cheese to the dressing to give it some real creaminess.

Wild Rice and Asparagus Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
I used broccoli instead of asparagus because it's what i had on hand. the steps are great and the finished product is beautiful and almost perfect... but WAY too sweet for me... and I love sweet!! I've made it a couple of times now and plan to omit the brown sugar completely in the future. Very easy to make. Works well with vegetables only as well, if you don't have or want chicken.

Creamy Caramel Flan

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2011
First, this is not traditional flan, and doesn't taste like it at all. It's definitely much thicker and creamier, but maybe you'll like it that way. For a Mexican-themed party, I made 3 versions of flan: the traditional recipe I grew up with in Mexico, a traditional choco-flan recipe, and this recipe. The first was the biggest hit, and the other two were barely eaten. Again, this is very thick and cheesecakish, and though some might like it, I found myself wanting it to be EITHER a real cheesecake or a real flan. Not a fan of the in-between.

Grandma's Green Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
This was fantastic. I was skeptical about using crackers instead of the traditional fried onions, but I went ahead and did it. As it turns out, I actually PREFER the crackers! Also, i mixed 75% of the cheese in with the beans and i'm glad i did. Here's a tip that worked great for me: i used the cheese grater on my onion. I had my onion ready in about 15 seconds, and the size/texture of the onions were perfect for this recipe (i'm not a huge onion chunck fan). So Good. I made this for thanksgiving and it's one of the few dishes that didn't have any leftovers. I'm probably making it again tonight!
