Butternut Squash Soup II

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2007
Wonderful! I've made this twice now, making a lot of the changes suggested in the other reviews. Both times, I baked the squash first, just putting the whole thing in the oven at 375 for about an hour. The skin just peels itself off! Very easy. I also left out the celery both times. The first time, I replaced the potatoes with sweet potatoes and added some garlic and a pinch of curry powder. It was absolutely delicious and very hearty served with a big dollop of sour cream (the sour cream is a MUST). The second time, I made it just with butternut squash (no carrots, no potatoes) and it was even better. I added some cayenne powder for heat and a little nutmeg. I mixed the sour cream right into the soup this time - I'll definitely make this again.

Grilled Rosemary Shrimp Skewers with Sea Salt

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2007
These make for a wonderful presentation with 1-2 shrimp per skewer - perfect for appetizers at a party. As part of a meal, I lay the rosemary skewers over a bed of seasoned rice or barley (love it with the barley bake - recipe on this site). The rosemary imparts a surprisingly strong flavor! I couldn't taste the thyme and am not sure if marinating the shrimp beforehand really gives it much additional flavor - next time I'll probably skip this step.

Thai Shrimp Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2007
I can't say enough about how fantastic these are! Brilliant! I used my Kitchenaid meat grinder to grind all of the shrimp, which made it very painless. I used a bit more cilantro than called for, and added a little light mayonnaise to the slaw rather than oil to make it "creamier". I served it with fresh pita bread from a recipe on this site - so easy. I was worried about the burger falling apart so I added some extra breadcrumbs, but it actually stayed together really well, and the whole concoction just tasted so fresh and wonderful. We re-heated two of them to eat the next day, and it tasted just as good as the day before. I can't wait to make these again!

Horseradish Mustard Dip

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2007
Yum, this was great! I made it to serve with some parmesan-crusted sweet potato fries. I used wasabi instead of horseradish. It had a good flavor and a good kick that would go well a number of things.

Sweet Tamarind Chutney

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
Wow, this was the best tamarind chutney ever!! Though not as easy as cilantro chutney, it's well worth it. I used olive oil instead of canola (it's what I had), and I made sure to heat the spices in the oil for long enough to really smell all of those spices. If you add the water too soon, you'll lose some of the flavor. I used onion powder in place of the asofe...(spice I can't even spell). Like some of the other reviews mentioned, I couldn't get the sauce thick enough without a little cornstarch. I actually simmered it for about an hour to reduce it, but still ended up adding a little cornstarch (teaspoon dissolved in hot water?), which made it a perfect consistency. Seriously, you can't buy stuff this good.
