New Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
My BF hates potato salad and he loved this. Be sure to cut the potatoes in 3/4" cubes. Good stuff.

Mock Coconut Pie (Spaghetti Squash Pie)

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
I was interested in the pie as a moderately healthy dessert; and as a healthy dessert I didn't expect it to be amazing, but at least edible. The biggest problem with this pie is the consistency of the squash. The little strands everywhere just isn't appealing; it's like eating pie made of linguine. If you could process the squash for a creamier consistency, this pie might get three stars.

Shish Tawook Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2009
This was average. I would not make this recipe again as writtten. I was surprised that it was so bland; I've never found that to be true of Middle Eastern food. I would increase the salt and add cayenne for spice.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
This would be a 3 or 4 star recipe if the cooking times had been accurate. I used boneless skinless thighs and it took only about 30 minutes to cook. One hour was way too long. Was the cooking time supposed to be for bone-in thighs? The teriyaki glaze (called "tare" in Japanese) resembles the tare that's popular for yakitori at Japanese restaurants in the US. I would recommend making the tare and brushing it on chicken breast pieces alternated with pieces of green onion skewered on bamboo sticks, and placed on a grill. It's called "negima" and it's delicious...

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Not bad, but I would only make this once a year. It's boiled food, so it's gonna be bland. I do love corned beef sandwiches, so I'm looking forward to my sandwich today.. I added a bottle of beer, used sliced fresh garlic, and I quartered the onion and put toothpicks in the quarters to keep them together. I ate this with soda bread and Guiness. Erin go bragh

Authentic Louisiana Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2009
I really enjoyed this. I used about 1.5 T of olive oil, just to cut down on the fat. I increased the garlic too. I used 6 cups of chicken broth instead of water, and added about a 1 t. of oregano. I also smashed some beans against the side of the pot like some reviewers suggested. I can't get andouille sausage here, which is a shame because I love it, so I used some some spicy kielbasa. Overall, great recipe.

Herbed Mushrooms with White Wine

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
My BF really liked this; I thought it good but not something I'd necessarily make again. It wasn't bad, but the 1 lb. of shrooms is fairly expensive for a a bit-better- than-mediocre side dish for two people.

Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Not very good at all. Still edible, but barely. Soaking the tomatoes in broth gave the tomatoes a smelly, almost sour dog-food like taste. If this recipe had been prepared with sun-dried tomatoes in oil, it may have tasted a lot better. I could have salvaged this pasta with some cream, cheese, and garlic or maybe some bottled alfredo sauce, but it was the healthiness of the ingredients that attracted me to this recipe in the first place. Overall, one of the worst recipes i have tried on this site.

Asian Coleslaw

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
This was really great! I used a bag of coleslaw and placed the rest of the veggies in a food processor. One bag of slaw method requires you make the full amount of sauce listed. I made this with the chicken satay recipe and added some cashews.

Caribbean-Spiced Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2009
Instead of roasting, I grill this "Drunken Chicken" from this site-style. I double the marinade and rub-- and inject the chicken with the marinade and the leftover for baste. Injecting the marinade eliminates the "bland chicken meat" problem some reviewers have mentioned. I apply the rub and then I take a beer can that's filled about 2/3 the way up with beer and Italian dressing and place the chicken over it. I put half an onion and some fresh thyme in the neck cavity. I don't brush the leftover marinade on the chicken until it has been cooking about 30 min. or else the rub will fall off. As written 3.5 stars-- with my changes it was definitely a five star. Excellent.

Vietnamese Iced Coffee

Reviewed: Feb. 28, 2009
I am half Asian (not Vietnamese) but have lived in Asia many years. I love Vietnamese iced coffee. Many Vietnamese prepare their coffee with Cafe du Monde coffee grounds, which includes chicory. It's a vestige of their French Indo-China colonial history.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2009
