Best Strawberry Daiquiri

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I used key lime juice instead of lime juice to give it tartness. Next time I'll cut back on the ice--it seemed to be too watery. Not bad as written; but needs to be tweaked. Even with my changes, something is till lacking, but I'm not exactly sure what...

Avocado Salad with Bacon and Sour Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I'm originally from the Tampa Bay area and I grew up with avocado and key lime trees in my yard, so I grew up with fresh guacamole in the wintertime, or what passes for winter in Florida. When it comes to regular guacamole, less ingredients are better, but the avocados must be very ripe or it will lack flavor and creamy consistency. This salad is excellent but especially good if your avocados are a touch underripe for standard guacamole. I added a clove of garlic and substituted key lime juice for lemon. Key lime is tarter than regular lime and gives it a unique flavor. I would even suggest regular Persian lime instead of lemon in this recipe. Overall, excellent as a dip or even condiment to tacos or fajitas.

Sally's Spinach Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2009
Ironically, I put so much extra stuff in these potatoes that I forgot to put the spinach in, and they were still great! And I usually don't like potatoes unless in the form of the chip or the tot. I just find potatoes to be bland, flavorless, lowly tubers that need all kinds of arterial blocking condiment help to be edible. Granted, these weren't good for you, but they were delicious. I used three large baking potatoes, increased to 2 green onions, and crumbled bacon. I boiled slices of garlic cloves with the potatoes and mashed them in. These were delicious and next time I'll add the spinach!

Too Much Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
My BF had never made a cake before, and I made him make this for my B-day since I hate store bought cakes. He made it with no problems so you know it's a very simple recipe. He used mini-choco-chips and poured "Satiny Chocolate Glaze" over it. Excellent.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2009
Four and a half stars. Excellent dish. We are not vegetarians, but I cook a meatless meal once a week and this is one of the best vegetarian meals on this site. I use "Best Marinara Sauce Yet" from this site instead of a jar of sauce.I also cook down the sauce/spinach/artichoke mixture 20 min. before assembling the lasagna. I subbed chicken broth for veg broth.

Licuado de Mango

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
I love mangoes so I really enjoyed this drink. Very good. Highly recommended as is but I might add some key lime juice next time to add a little tartness.

Avocado Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
This is only as good as your avocados, so make sure they are ripe! Very good, healthy, and easy to prepare. Useful to serve with fajitas and tacos as a topping.

Blooming Onion and Dipping Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2009
I've combined a lot of the wisdom from other reviewers and added some of my own. Firstly, I think it's important to do this in a LARGE fryer. I use the turkey fryer at 375 F. The onion is large so it will drop the oil temp immediately upon dipping it into a small fryer, and if the oil temp drops too much, you will have a soggy, greasy onion instead of a crispy one. I cut the onion and dump it in upside down into ice water for 30 min. to spread the petals. I also double the dry ingredients to ensure full coating of the onion. The first time the dry ingredient amount didn't suffice. I leave the core intact to keep the onion from falling apart, and then I cut it out after I fry it. At 375 F, it takes about 6 minutes (with core intact) to fry properly. Keep watching it! It will overcook pretty quickly and there is a danger of undercooking it. The middle takes longer to cook than the outside petals, so when you remove it, check the inner petals for doneness. Towards the latter end of frying, I flip it upside down and push down on it to let the buoyancy of the oil spread out the petals. Of course, the sauce can be adjusted to taste. I increase the horseradish sauce to 3-4 T, quadruple the oregano, increase the salt to taste, and of course the cayenne pepper, because I like it spicy.
