Strawberry Margarita

Reviewed: May 22, 2007
Delicious! I can't give this enough stars. I am going to make this for a girls night next week, I think everyone will like it too. UPDATE:I make this with limeade instead of pink lemonade, get the real lime stuff, not the acid green stuff made with food coloring. I like it even better now.

Chocolate Chip Cheese Ball

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
Delicious! I couldn't find the graham sticks the first time I made this (last weekend was about the sixth time) and followed the advice of another reviewer and used pretzel sticks, WOWZA, so good, a little salty and sweet. I haven't had any problems forming it into a ball, I suspect those who have didn't allow it to firm up long enough or else they substituted neufchatel for cream cheese or margerine for butter, NO NO! You have to use the real stuff (fattening, but tasty). Make a batch and take it over to a friends house so you wont be tempted to plop it in front of your tv and eat your head off!

Best Lemonade Ever

Reviewed: May 23, 2007
Making the sugar water on the stove is an easy and ingenious step. However, I have to agree with other reviewers, too sweet, I had to juice three extra lemons to balance it out to the sweet tart flavor I was hoping for. This lemonade is better than the stuff at HOT DOG ON A STICK.

Erin's Indonesian Chicken

Reviewed: May 29, 2007
So, so good, but bland made as is. I made jasmime rice instead of plain white, using one tsp of canola, heat rice till coated and smells like popcorn, then add water, heat to boil, then turn to low, cover and cook 20mins (perfect rice every time!). I added thin sliced carrots with the beans, 1/2 tsp dark sesame oil, 1 tbsp white wine and 1tbsp fine grated fresh ginger (1/2 tsp dry) to the sauce mix, it was fantastic and smelled wonderful!

Baked Chicken Reuben

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
Sometimes when something seems too good to be true you end up with a stinky house and nothing for dinner but hopes and dreams, sigh. Anyways, I love reuben sandwiches, I make my own russian dressing (extra horseradish, obv) and only buy the finest of pressed, preformed deli meats on it. But they are soo fattening and my family doesn't like them. So I must of been crazy to think they'd go for this mix of thousand island dressing-chick-sauerkraut dish. I followed the directions exactly and felt positively saintly when my hubby got home and I could say, 'dinner will be done in fifteen, hunnybunny.' Then I opened the oven to a grease slick of orange chicken with enough pickle relish (from the dressing) swimming in oil to make a hungry dog run away. The smell was sour and sweet, like pickle apple lollipops. My hub said, 'what is that? my son said, 'what happened? Is everyone okay. So I tried one bite and it tasted like, well, there's no polite way to say it, so I wont. Chicken Reubens are not for us.

Chicken Eugene

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
Too salty with bacon AND dried beef. I was not please at all with the result and would have liked to have used my sodium for the month on something tastier like kettle korn or potato chips. Totally disappointing.

Famous Butter Chicken

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
My son is such a picky eater that I had make him try a bite (the one bite rule in our house) and boy was he glad, he loved it and asked for it again the next night. Wonderful and easy recipe, thanks a lot! I made a couple of changes to the recipe, which were just personal taste choices, I used just one egg and added two tablespoons of buttermilk to it and I used a dash of dry mustard and parsley to the cracker crumbs.

Hot Cranberry Tea

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
So good. The cloves are a natural pain anaesthetic and were great for the sore throats and stuffy noses my husband I were nursing in January. The only change I made was to add a little more orange and extra cloves. So good, I have made this about five times now.

Hot Buttered Rum Mix

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
Really good base, but it needs a little spice to it. I added coriander, cinnamon and touch of nutmeg to it. I keep some of this in the freezer for cold Washington nights, or mornings, or afternoons, it's that good!

Kung Pao Chicken

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
Not very good, bland. I used less sesame oil. The recipe didn't specify, but I assume the author meant light sesame oil, because two tablespoons of dark would be so aaaaawful! I think I will tweak this a bit using some chicken broth, rice wine vinegar, shoyu and sesame oil to try and get the taste we love.

Peppy's Pita Bread

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
Very easy. I followed DReginek's instructions for making without a bread maker, turned out perfect, so much better than store bought. I made them in the oven the first time and have put them on the grill each time after, totally fun and tasty. I served them with baba ghanoush, so yummy.

Baba Ghanoush

Reviewed: May 30, 2007
I did everything the same as the recipe except I left out the sesame seeds, I think it has enough sesame taste with the tahini. This is so good the next day, I made Peppy's Pitas to got with it and am thinking about eating this again soon!

Pain Perdu II

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2007
Wow! I can't imagine eating french toast any other way now. So tasty even though I used triple sec for the orange liquer (not very authentic) I will try Grand Marnier next time like someone else suggested.

Japanese Peanut Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2007
So good and easy to make. I love it on chicken salad but it is so good I have poured it onto pasta too! Especially tasty with broccoli slaw, I am salivating just thinking about it.Thanks for the wonderful recipe. Buy the already toasted sesame seeds in the Asian Foods Section at the Grocery Store!

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2007
The cottage cheese/sour cream mixture was so yummy. I made the chicken in the crockpot-three frozen chicken breasts with a chopped onion, 1/2 a beer with a sprinkle of cumin, oregano, cinnamon, black pepper and a couple of cloves of garlic, gave it a stir and cooked it on low for five hours and then shredded it, sooo easy and tasty. Thanks for the fab recipe!
