Middle Eastern Kibbeh

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2008
This was AWESOME!! I had been wanting to make kibbeh for a long time. When I was studying in Mexico, I found that there were quite a few middle eastern restaurants, and this dish was very popular. In the US, it seems not many people have heard of it. I liked the fact that the mint and onion was mixed right up into the meat/bulgur mix, as I've only had it on the side before. I made raita to eat with this b/c I thought the flavors would go well together and it was DELISH!! Thanks for the recipe!

Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
I added a little extra salt and butter. I throw them right into my kitchen made stand mixer and stir them to perfection. They go fabulously with "Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Herb Sauce" also on allrecipes.com.

Pork Tenderloin with Creamy Herb Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2008
After a few modifications this was phenomenal! I doubled the sauce based on other reviewers suggestion, but I wouldn't recommend it if you don't love a ton of sauce (I do love a lot, but I still had approx. 3/4 cup leftover). I sauteed 1/2 of a minced yellow onion and 2 cloves minced garlic with the carrots. I also used about 1/4 cup fresh minced parsley which I added right after adding the cream. (I did NOT double the dried basil, just added a pinch more). Served with garlic redskin mashed potatoes but next time I might try egg noodles.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies III

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
Yummy!! Perfect for any chocaholic. One tip I recommend to do is use parchment paper and flatten the cookie just a tiny bit so they have a better shape when they bake. Also, make sure you get a healthy coating of powdered sugar on them before they go into the oven, this helps with the "crackling" effect.

Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
Followed other reviewer's suggestion by replacing the "1 and 1/4 cup water" with 1/2 cup corn syrup, 1/2 cup 2% milk, and 1/4 cup water. Served over a Rachael Ray dessert which consisted of vanilla ice cream rolled in crushed amaretti cookies that are soaked with amaretto liqueur.

Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
Mmmm, the perfect comfort food. I added a splash of dry white wine in the beginning with the chicken, butter, and seasoning packet. Don't believe other reviewers when they say the whole packet is too much seasoning...it is the perfect amount. I cooked on low for 5 hours then added a can of sliced mushrooms (liquid drained) and some frozen peas (thawed) along with the cream of chicken soup and cream cheese. I served it over hot brown jasmine rice. My fiance and I ate the whole pot ourselves!!

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
So far, I have only partially made this recipe, but I absolutely loved it. I had the fish marinating (I used red snapper instead of tilapia) then during the day, some friends called and invited us to a BBQ...they already had a ton of food, so I decided to just bring the marinaded filets to toss on the grill and eat as-is. They were so flavorful after 6 hrs. of soaking! Can't wait to try the whole taco w/ the chipotle cream.

Spicy Bratwurst Supper

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
As a Wisconsinite, I was thrilled to see such a creative use of bratwurst in a recipe! I was doubtful about how all these ingredients would mesh together, but this was so delicious! I upped the amount of sauce, mushrooms, onions, and jalapenos b/c I can never get a enough heat (I even dumped a little tabasco sauce on this while eating it). My fiance was still talking about how delicious this was the next day. 5 stars, great job on this recipe. PS...I didn't have gouda...we sprinkled a little sharp cheddar on it...Honestly, this dish is so darn good that just about any cheese would have worked fine, but I will have to get actual gouda next time since that's another Wisconsin favorite!

Chocolate Chip Orange Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
Flavorful, moist, and unique. Next time I will add just a bit more orange zest b/c the orange flavor was more subtle than I wanted it to be. Also, I used dark chocolate morsels. The flavor was both nostalgic and elegant....awesome!!

Sherry Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2008
This is my FAVORITE yellow curry recipe. Rich, creamy, and delicious! I like to use hot madras curry, or regular curry powder w/ 1/2 tsp. chili powder. I also use light coconut milk to cut down the calories a bit. I can't say enough how tasty this is!!

Layered Mint Chocolate Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2008
I made 1 1/2 batch of the chocolate layer and kept the mint layer as written. This was soooooooo good. Another reviewer wrote that the peppermint flavor was too strong. I disagree, I think it's perfect. Also be careful b/c if you add the extract while the confectioner's coating is too hot the flavor will cook off. Take the pan off the burner, then stir it in.

Pepper-Honey Cedar Plank Salmon

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
I did it both ways, on the grill for my sister and I then in the oven when my fiance got home from work...the grill was a little more flavorful. Also, I like my salmon more of a medium well to well temperature so I left it on a few extra minutes. I will be using this recipe many more times in the future....thank you!!!

Classic Thanksgiving Dressing With Parsley, Sage and Thyme

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2008
Mmmmm delicious! Just a word of caution, though... watch the cubed bread carefully while toasting it. One minute too long and they'll burn to a crisp, which I learned the hard way on my first batch hehehe. Also, I added approx. 1/2 cup extra chicken broth and it came out just the way I liked it. Thanks for the fabulous recipe!!!

Braised Lamb Shanks

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Easy and delicious! I actually forgot the olive oil completely and since they turned out so tasty, I don't know that I would even add it in the future or at least I would reduce it to a couple tablespoons to save on some fat and calories. The meat provides enough fat on its own as it braises. Also, I had never made lamb shank before, so I looked up how to trim them before cooking and I think the best method is to leave the membrane on the shanks as they cook....trim the fat only. Without the membrane, all the meat will fall off the bone which makes serving a bit difficult.

Masala Chai Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2009
Made these for my vegan little brother....absolutely delicious! I was slightly confused about the Masala chai, though....I wasn't quite sure whether to use tea brewed with water or with soy milk (to make sure that they are vegan). After researching the traditional way to make the drink I went with a combination of the two and they turned out fabulously!

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This will be one of my go-to recipes when we have company. It is elegant, delicious, and super easy to prepare. I also prepared the honey-mustard-butter mixture an hour ahead and let the filets soak in it. Also, I might take another reviewer's advice and increase the pecans while decreasing the breadcrumbs slightly in the crust mixture to make it a bit more crunchy. But you can't beat this dish. I served it with brussel sprouts roasted in Meyer's lemon-infused olive oil and the "Garlic Mashed Red Potatoes" also from this site. To die for...

Dark Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2009
WOW!!! So delicious!! I made them late last night and ate 2 right away (my fiance ate FOUR! I couldn't stop him!), I just sampled a small bite of one this morning to see how the flavor had fused together, and they're even better than before! Truly decadent and delicious. I felt that they definitely needed the extra chocolately/sugary kick of chocolate frosting, so I topped them with the "Creamy Chocolate Frosting" recipe also from this site....thank you Milwaukee Cupcake Queen!!

Wienerschnitzel

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2008
This was so incredibly yummy. I served it with penne pasta in rosemary cream sauce. Next time I will whip up a simple mushroom gravy to go with it, b/c I love lots of sauce....however, just a squeeze of lemon was perfection as well!
