Rockin' Oysters Rockefeller
WHY have we never made this before now?! Made these on the spur of the moment to try something new for oysters. We used a slightly different mix of cheeses which we had on hand and that was fine. We followed the recipe (which is PERFECT in itself), but w/ a few differences: Added a few cloves more garlic and a few squeezes of lime to brighten/enhance the flavors. We were both bummed that we didn't have any bacon ~ that would've been AWESOME! 5 stars on this. SO EASY to make! Will ABSOLUTELY make again and again! Thank you!

Quick and Easy Pancit
My husband picked up some Canton-style noodles, and I used this recipe as a guide for our meal. We used what we had on-hand - shitaake mushrooms, cabbage, onion. garlic and Hawaiian chili peppers from our garden. We were short on veggies, so I used 2 cups of a frozen stir-fry medley of red bell pepper & carrot strips, water chestnuts, sugar snap peas, broccoli. celery and green beans. A note, we added 2 cups of broth to the sauteed veggies, brought to a boil, added shoyu (soy sauce), some sesame oil, oyster sauce, then stirred in the noodles & frozen veg and let the noodles absorb the liquid as the veggies cooked. We have lots of green onions in our garden - they are terrific to top the dish, for sure. We have lime trees, so we used lime instead of lemon - a few squeezes really made the dish! We marinated some pork ribs in a char-siu rub and BBQ'd those until nice & crispy on the edges and served that on the side. My husband gives this a 4, I give this a 5. I just finished it for breakfast - fabulous!

Coconut-Lime Sorbet
5 Stars. Perfect recipe, as-is, even if I added 1/2 tsp. vanilla & some grated lemon zest - not necessary. I read that it's best for all ingredients to be chilled well, so we chilled down the lime juice and coconut cream and we used ice water. We also added 2 teaspoons of light rum - I read that alcohol reduces iciness in the final product, so we tried it. We ran the Cuisinart for 30 minutes, resulting in a smooth, creamy soft serve and froze the rest in individual containers. * * * I have to tell you, we took the just-made sorbet, which was rich and creamy -not too sweet, not too tart- and dropped into into a tall, cold glass of Vanilla Coke with ice cubes, then stirred with a straw to make *the most incredible* float! It creamed and frothed up in the glass. Delicious and decadent. This is now our favorite dessert, hands down. An adult version of course is quite nice with more light rum in it. * * * I just tasted the sorbet that froze and ripened overnight and it has a wonderful, creamy texture, not icy. It also has the same sweet-tart taste as yesterday, so it did not sweeten appreciably, as I read that it might. As mentioned by another reviewer, it does melt quickly, especially if it's hot in your kitchen. * * * Did I mention this was our first recipe using our beautiful new red Cuisinart? Couldn't have picked a better recipe as our first. * * * Footnote: Just topped out pancakes with this. Sinful!
