Cornbread Salad I

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2013
It never fails that when I bring something a teeny bit exotic to a BBQ/potluck it is rarely well-received. However, whenever I make recipes that I personally do not care for, people gobble it up and continually ask for the recipe. Go figure! Well, I love cornbread and this is not a traditional recipe, so although I was trepidatious, I made it for our friend's party anyway. First off, I made Texas Caviar the night before and could not find any ripe avocados at the store. So my honey told me to use guacamole. It was too creamy and we didn't care for it. I used this as one of the fillers in my cornbread recipe. Yep... I was scared...lol! I used this recipe as a general guide and now I realize that the possibilities are endless. I added in chopped red pepper, lots of halved cherry and grape tomatoes, I grill 2 ears of corn on the cob and cut the corn off the cob. I also roasted about 4-5 jalapeƱos and mixed it in with my dressing. I layered as much as I could in a trifle dish. Finished it off with the dressing. Over the dressing I put a layer of green onions with 3 tiny tomatoes in the middle and rounded the edges with the halves. It looked beautiful. About 4 hours later it was on a table being devoured. Everyone made comments about the presentation and the flavor in the dish itself. I will make it again!

Excellent recipe!! Followed the directions exactly. SO easy! I froze the PB cups before pressing them into the hot cookies. Delish! I doubled the recipe and used a small cookie scoop... it made about 62 cookies!

Pasta e Olio

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
Delicious! I sauteed garlic italian sausage.. then added the rest of the ingredients, except for the butter (since the sausage created it's own fat). I used more garlic and added sea salt! After plated, I drizzled a smidge extra virgin olive oil over the top and some fresh grated parmesan! YUMMY!!!!!

Adrienne's Tom Ka Gai

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2011
Followed this recipe for the most part-- doubled it. I didn't buy Bok Choy because I had a head of green cabbage, so I shredded about 1/2- 3/4 cup and added it. Also added approx 2 cups of uncooked prawns. I added gralic chili paste to my soup, as well as a big spoonful of Tom ka Gai soup base. As a side, I cooked a pot of jasmine BROWN rice, adding 1T. Costco chicken base in the jar. Ground up roasted peanuts to serve on top of the cooked rice. My sweetie put a big scoop of peanut-topped rice in his bowl then ladled the soup on top. I added a squeeze of a meyer's lemon to my bowl and an additional scant of the garlic-chili paste. Both tasted excellent. My honey's was nuttier! As for the cabbage, it tasted fine in our soup, but I would def use the Bok Choy from now on for a more authentic flavor and texture. I felt like the shredded cabbage just wasn't right for this soup, and I don't think chopped cabbage is either. =)

American Lasagna

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
This is a great recipe. I didn't measure ANYTHING and I changed it up, although I know it would be excellent, as written. I used a LOT of good quality burger and Jimmy Dean HOT sausage as well as sweet italian sausage. I used my cuisinart to blend the curds out of cottage cheese (cool consistency.. very creamy) used ricotta, too. I used maybe half cup of FRESH grated parmesan cheese. I blended the bell pepper and onion in my cuisinart, so my son and hubby wouldn't know it was in there. HA! I added some red pepper, more of all the spices, including 4x's the fresh garlic. I used half the salt. Everything was perfect! It took a LONG time, but was worth it!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
This recipe was decent, but no one seemed to LOVE it. My son wouldn't eat it at all. I can see why people like it, but for me it was heavy and missing something. I don't plan on making this again. I'm going to heat it up and attempt to enjoy it again tomorrow. Maybe I'll up the rating. I didn't particularly care for it cold, but didn't dislike it either. It felt like a lot of work for the end result.

Cornbread Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2008
This recipe was fun and it looks yummy in a glass or clear plastic serving dish. There are so many things you can do to personalize this and make it your own. I started w adding a lot more seasoning to my cornbread recipe (paprika, celery seed, savory, cumin, garlic and roasted garlic, red pepper flakes). I used 1 can Northern white beans and 1 can Caribbean Recipe Black beans (yum!). I forgot to layer cheese in the middle, so put it all on top and that was just fine. Very flavorful and the diced tomatoes stay firm and fresh; nice surprise! The one thing that bothered me was how much MAYO and SOUR CREAM we were eating in every bite... so, I would stick to the recipe for potlucks, but serving my family, I plan on adding cottage cheese to the recipe and decreasing the amt of mayo and s.cream. I will also use the crumbled bacon in the bag (from costco) just because there is so much more meat and less fat in Costco's-- meaning a healthier end recipe. I thought it might also be fun to add spicy Jimmy Dean sausage (in place of the bacon), olives, chopped fresh broccoli into the layers-- serving it up w a wedge of lettuce and some hot peppers on the side. I used the stated size of canned chili's and it was fine. Once the cornbread is cooked, the flavor of the chili's is extremely mild. I will add MORE to mine next time. HA! Ohhhhhhhh the options! Fun!
