Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
My fiancée who hates rhubarb looked like he was going to cry after I told him the next morning that I took the leftovers with me to work (so we didn't consume all the calories). I used less sugar than what was called for and rhubarb out of the garden. Wouldn't change a thing

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
Too thick. Just a touch thicker than dip. Certainly not salad dressing worthy.

Zucchini Lasagna With Beef and Sausage

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2013
I roasted the squash first and then used it instead of noodles. Pretty good, but not significantly healthier.

Thai Barbeque Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2013
I added about 1/3 c cilantro to the mix which I may cut back on next time to 1/4c and used 2tbs of honey, but no sugar since I'm not a big fan of sweet marinades. I also added about 1/2 tsp red chili pepper flakes which I think is a must. Used this on chicken tenders and marinaded it for 20 hours (the night before). Cooked up amazing and served with lettuce on the side. Everything was perfect.

Prize Winning Baby Back Ribs

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
I made this for some beef baby back ribs. I used a lot less (just enough to coat the ribs), added some olive oil for it to stick and two grated cloves of garlic. Very tasty. Feel free to put a thick layer of this rub on because the flavor is really good when it soaks in.

Mahogany Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
This was just a touch bland for me. Next time I'm going to add sesame seeds, since I realized last minute that the pantry contained poppy and not sesame.

Asian-American Slaw With Peanuts and Jalapenos

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
I didn't have jalapeño so I used sambal garlic chili. I also used smooth peanut butter, since that is what I have on hand. A great way to use cabbage and low fat. Oh if you have regular spy sauce, it might get too salty, so add half and then more to taste.

Cheesy Rutabaga Bake

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2013
Not bad. I used more rutabaga and carrot than what was called for. This is a tasty way to use veggies, but I think I'm taking points off for not being a casserole type person. Plus who needs to cover everything with cheese in order for it to taste good.

Chocolate Covered Cherry Shooters

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2013
These do taste like the real thing. I'm interested to try this with frangelico to see if results are similar.

Cilantro-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Very tasty. The flavor improves with age. At first taste (after 10 minutes) it was eh. But we loved it the next day for a dinner salad. Amazing on a southwestern salad.

French Leek Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Fabulous as is. I used heavy cream ecause I couldn't find light cream. I might use half and half next time. I used part cheddar and part comte cause I had some on hand. It was a touch runny somewhere less firm than a quiche, but oh so tasty. This goes down in legend. I will make again.

Chicken Piccata with Artichoke Hearts

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
I left out the italian seasoning since my fiancee make chicken piccata without it. Then I basically added ingredients till it tasted good. I didnt have white wine on hand, so I upped the amount of lemon juice and added a touch more broth. Also, I generally don't use corn starch, so I floured my chicken and slowly cooke dit in the pan. Once I added the broth, I brought the mixture up to a boil where it naturally thickened.

Day After Thanksgiving Turkey Pho

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2012
My fiancee and I cooked basically this recipe minus the anise & fennel since we don't like those flavors. It is VITALLY important to start with a good broth. One of the other reviewers commented that it took a lot of water to cover the carcass. My fiancee fixed this problem by taking out the largest knife he had and hacking the carcass in half and then in smaller pieces. It's also a good idea to do this for the larger bones too. Inside the bones is where a lot of the flavor and collagen(which thicken the broth) are. It'll fit easier in the pot and make a great broth. For those of you who already put too much water in, long cook times. Leave the pot on the stove for 2-3 hours and cook down the broth, concentrating the flavor until it tastes good. If you didnt use all the drippings for gravy, you could add a small amount in for a very intense turkey flavor.

Iced Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2012
Great recipe. Be sure to use quality vanilla for the frosting. Orange zest would not be amiss either. Made recipe as is and it is amazing.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2012
These were pretty good. I thought these were a touch dry and bland. It's a good starter recipe. Next time, red chili pepper flakes and more cheese for moisture.

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens

Reviewed: May 21, 2012
My fiancée is from Mississippi and he made basically this recipe from heart. We used two over large beets with greens grown in the garden. We sautéed the greens with no oil and one single slice of bacon. Honestly, I think one slice of bacon vs all the oil in this recipe might be better, plus it adds an amazing amount of flavor. It you want to be really authentic, use green chile vinegar. The vinegar really brings out the flavor just try it.

Chile Colorado

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2012
I made a few additions: I added 5 cloves of garlic and may add some more next time. I omitted the onions as I don't eat them. I added 1 tsp oregano, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp ground cumin, 1/2 tsp ground coriander & 1/2 tsp cayenne. I might mix the chiles next time and add a guajillo to make it a little spicy. A good starter recipe. I cooked it all in a dutch oven and it turned out beautiful.

Absolutely Amazing Ahi

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
This is super tasty. I would suggest adding the soy and tasting as you go along. I like to add more sesame oil and eat fresh, leftovers aren't as good.
