Megan's Granola

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2012
This recipe did not bind like I wanted it to. I used 1/2 c applesauce and 1/2 c oil. I might add more oil less applesauce next time. Good starter recipe

Mustard Vinaigrette

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2012
I used an old whole grain mustard and I had to add more mustard. I think this would earn 1 more star if it had a green herb or second note to it like cumin or something.

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2012
I added 2 cups of broth used left over turkey, 3 carrots, 2 celrey stalks, and I should have doubled the herbs and spice. I also added 1/2 tsp cayenne. I cooked the whole thing in a dutch oven. I chopped up some broccoli and threw it on top put the lid on the oven and cooked it for 10 min. Served on brown rice and it was great. I gave this three stars because I had to change so much in the recipe to get it tasty. A good basic recipe that you can change to suit your tastes.

Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
We use real whipped cream with a touch of maple syrup. I gave this recipe to my fiancee who works in a restaurant and it is the best selling item there. They make their own nut crust with walnuts and it's amazing.

Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
I brine with water and extra spices and it turns out moist and amazing. 1 gallon of broth that I have to throw away later seems like a waste to me.

Persimmon Pudding

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
I cut the sugar by 1/2 c. Stir twice in 15 minute intervals. I might add a dash of nutmeg next time. This is great with ice cream or whipped cream. Additional note: I have made this 3 times now and it is important to adjust the recipe based on the type of persimmon you are using hachiya (round deep orange) persimmons are very sweet and give this pudding a great caramelized sugar flavor. You can cut another 1/4 cup sugar when using hachiyas. The fuyu persimmons are less sweet. I use 2 cups sugar for them.

Butterscotch Oatmeal

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2012
I lowered the sugar to 1/4 c. I didn't like the egg. I may try this recipe one more time with no egg to see if it can redeem itself

Chipotle Cheeseburger

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
I have been making this before this recipe was added to the site. I have a few modifications. First, you can used fresh grated garlic (grate as finely as possible) or use garlic powder or dried minced garlic which seems to work better and not have as much of a bite as the fresh garlic. Also, don't use their special seasoning as it is basically salt and pepper with artificial filler. Add a dash of onion powder if you want, but skip the filler and control the amount of salt yourself. ALSO add chipotle chopped and the adobo sauce as needed, tasting as you go along. Everyone has a different heat level and this is the only way to ensure you don't make something you can't handle.

Chile Verde II

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2011
I had a picnic roast and cooked it in the slow cooker. I do think it was a little runny and next time I will add the broth last. I only added about 3 cups, but I had fresh tomatillos from the garden which were very juicy this year.

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2011
I have made this recipe 7 or 8 times now. Anytime I get salmon, I think about doing this recipe. I do not use the peanut oil and green onions. I probably use 1 tbs of sesame oil for the other oil. It turns out amazing every time. The best thing is the leftovers are good cold so put it over a nice fresh salad.

Picadillo

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
Now, I must state that I know next to nothing about Puerto Rican food. There is one restaurant in San Rafael, Ca I go to and my fiancee can not stop ravign about the food there. His favorite dish is the picadillo. I did make a few modifications due to a shortage of ingredients. I omitted the bell pepper since when I got home I found out the one I had had spoiled. Also I didn't have any raisins on hand. NO onion since I hate them, I added 6 cloves of garlic instead. * I have since doubled the spices and it is very tasty. I used 1.5 cups fresh tomatoes because I had some from the garden that needed to be used. Chicken stock since I didn't have any beef. NO chorizo sausage at the store so I bought linguica and cut it into thin rounds Lastly no almonds since I am allergic to them. With all these modifications I made some fabulous puerto rican chili! Served with beans, this is amazing. I am adding this to my winter recipes. Generally cheap to make once you have the capers and olives on hand.

Pickled Hot Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2011
I, like some of the other reviewers, made my first batch and it turned out mushy. I am currently working on my second batch which I used 1/3 c pickling lime and a 1 gallon water(just a guess). I am crossing my fingers that this batch turns out less mushy. I also added the pepper raw to the jars and then threw the hot vinegar mix on top. Spices were .at the bottom of the jar also added quite a bit more spices to mine. I added tumeric (hoping to improve the color), peppercorns whole, brown mustard seed, along with the garlic. The taste is amazing. It tasted just like pepperocinis. I used half banana peppers & half anaheims for the first batch. This second is all banana. Not hot but full of flavor. I will make a few batches this summer and report back the best ratios

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
I have made these about 7 times now. So tasty and a good way to use overly large zucchini which you don't know what to do with! Simply grate the zucchini. You can deseed it if you want, but I find that if you leave in the seeds, they kind of taste like little pumpkin seeds.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
I went with the first reviewer's suggestions. only 2 cup sugar, 3.5 c flour, 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup applesauce I added about 1/8 of a teaspoon allspice to the other spices. I made one batch muffins, the other a bread and cooked at the same time. Wonderful

Mushrooms with a Soy Sauce Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I think I thought by the 5 star rating that this was going to be something mind blowing. It wasn't. It tasted like soy sauce and mushrooms. Which I guess is ok but when pairing it with a steak, the steak doesn't need it.

Sweet and Spicy Curry with Chickpeas

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
May have been because I used madras curry, but I didn't care for this recipe. Also it was too sweet for my tastes.

Sweet and Sour Pork III

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This needed something. I know that the flavor was there, it just wan't strong enough. I added more soy sauce and I think it could have been better with more ketchup. I might try to work with this recipe some more, but I was disappointed with the flavor.

Rum-Spiked Horchata

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
This really needed more spices and vanilla. I accidentally ground the rice too fine and then had to wait a day till it settled. This is a tasty recipe but I don't know if I would do it all the time just because the flavor needs so much adjusting. Oh, and I added like 2-3 oz of rum to a glass with ice and then added the horchata.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
I forgot to add the salt to the beans and didn't have any jalapenos which may have affected my rating. I will revise it when I have tried it according to the recipe. However, I did have to add a lot more cumin since the flavor cooked off during the long cooking time. I may add some fat next time since it just didn't have that lush flavor. Course how can the added calories really be that important.
