Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2012
I made this recipe exactly as is. I used pureed fresh pumpkin. These pancakes had a pleasant, soft and chewy texture and a light pumpkin flavor. I have tried a lot of pancake recipes and this is a new favorite.

Spicy Shrimp and Grits

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
I omitted the salt and drained the rotel as some other reviewers suggested. I also added a tablespoon of cajun spice to the shrimp as I sauted. This was excellent!

Whole Wheat, Oatmeal, and Banana Pancakes

Reviewed: May 27, 2012
These are seriously good pancakes! I did make a few alterations that I felt worth mentioning. I had two squishy bananas, so I added both. I did not add the milk powder like others have indicated. I added two eggs because our farm eggs are small. The main change was that I only added one cup of milk. I think the batter would be way too thin. With my changes, the batter was exactly as I liked it. They cooked wonderfully. The taste was great and banana-y. I topped mine with strawberry syrup that I made. It was sublime. This recipe is a keeper.

Curry Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2012
I pureed the onion and garlic before simmering as one other reviewer suggested. Delicious. I froze the sauce and then thawed and reheated. I added a little half and half.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2011
Made as is except added a little fenugreek and coriander as one reviewer suggested. The wife orders chicken makhani every time we go to an Indian restaurant. She said this was very close to the version she gets at the restaurant.

Pork Chops with Garden Rice

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2011
I was out of white rice so I used a Lundberg wild rice blend instead. I used a fresh tomato with a little oregano and parsley instead of the canned Italian tomatoes. I used a can of mushrooms instead of fresh. Very flavorful and easy to prepare.

Red Cabbage and Apples

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
I really like red cabbage. This was one of the best I have had. I am sure this recipe would have been great as is, however I changed it a little, taking suggestions from other reviewers. I changed the veg oil for bacon. I changed the white sugar for brown sugar and the white vinegar for apple cider vinegar. I also used 1/2 an onion and 2 small leeks. I think I Iiked this recipe because it didn't have too many spices like cloves or allspice that some people use in cabbage recipes. The sweet and sour of the apples, sugar and vinegar along with the cabbage was good on its own without any additions. Great recipe thanks.

Ali's Green Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2011
Since I don't live in Texas, I am sure I have never tried the green sauce about which many have commented. Instead, this sauce reminded me of an avocado salsa that was offered at a chain Mexican restaurant that is no longer in our area-- much to our extreme sadness. Either way, it is delicious. I will make this often. Thank you for posting this recipe. It makes us miss our former fast food Mexican place a little less...

Old-Fashioned Italian Zucchini Fritters

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2011
Delicious. I added a little shredded carrot as some other reviewers mentioned, just for color, otherwise made the recipe as is. These fried up crisp and lite in texture. I served it topped with a Romesco sauce, also from this site.

Chipotle Chicken Salad

Reviewed: May 11, 2011
This was a great idea for jazzing up plain old chicken salad! For my own taste, I added WAY less mayo and sour cream, and used a shredded pepper cheese instead. You really could change this around a hundred ways and it would be great. Thank you for the recipe.

Ruth's Roquefort Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2011
There are few things I like better than a good cheese ball. This one did not disappoint- plus it was a great change from the dried beef-green onion one I usually make. Using the advice of previous reviews I added more onions and celery. I doubled the cayenne pepper, added a little salt and added a dash of celery salt. I used 4 ounces of bleu cheese because I really like the flavor. Do not skip the pecans. I got a lot of compliments on this-- even from a person who doesn't like bleu cheese.

Curried Pork Chops and Cauliflower with Basmati Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
Excellent job Fight the Fat Foodie! I made this recipe as written and it was great. Loved it. I made my own apple chutney from a recipe on another site. I used a hot curry powder. Lots of flavor from the spice so I didn't miss the fat. Thank you for posting.

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2010
Very good and much healthier than many refried bean recipes. I used one can of low fat beef broth in place of 1 cup of the water and added the whole jalapeno pepper. I also added 1/2 a dried ancho pepper and 1/2 slice of bacon for flavor.

Kofta Kebabs

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I used a mixture of ground beef and lamb. I was a little wary of so much allspice and cinnamon but it really works. This made really great koftas that went well with tzatzki and grilled pita bread. I will make this again.

Almost No Fat Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2010
Very, very good bread! I did make some of the previously mentioned additions-- less sugar, more applesauce, 3 bananas and the addition of 1/2 t of salt. I also added golden raisins. It turned out fantastic. I'll add more cinnamon because that is our taste. Really great recipe, thank you!

Milk Tart

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
I was really surprised by how good this turned out. It was different than other custard desserts I have had. It has a really delicate, subtle flavor. It is very sweet with a light texture. The cinnamon on top is just the right touch. I would definately make this again. It is a new favorite.

Whiskey Slush

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2010
When I made this I thought I had made too much, but my wife and I polished it off soon enough. It keeps great in the freezer. It is easy to make and tastes great. I tried it mixing it with ginger ale and also with sprite. Either one works great.

Spicy African Yam Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2010
This was great...I made this without changes and really enjoyed it. Low in fat and healthy but very flavorful. I love the combination of the tomato and chiles from the salsa and the peanut butter. Easy to prepare.
