Tapenade

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I used black and green olives and capers. I didn't have anchovy fillets, but a great substitute if you want the flavor is a little bit of tiparos or patis (different names for same thing). That's the clear fish sauce one uses in Thai or Filipino recipes. It's made from anchovies. You can buy tiparos at any of your larger grocers. tasted great on top of cream cheese on a toasted English muffin. :)

Fig and Olive Tapenade

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I didn't have figs, but I thought about how extremely sweet they are--almost like....honey. So, I substituted honey for the figs. The consistency didn't have that lovely chewiness of figs, but the taste was wonderful!!

Never Fail Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
What a clever idea to use the dry bread stuffing mix!! I left out the bbq as the smoke-flavoring was kind of over-powering for us, but ketchup works great! Here's a meatloaf tip: make mini loaves in your cupcake tins. Only takes about a half hour to cook, holds together well and with a little ketchup on top, looks cute on the plate, and we all know presentation is important!

Mary's Meatloaf

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I have NEVER been able to make a good meatloaf, although my family good-naturedly eats whatever I put out. My mom, on the other hand, made the quintessential meatloaf, and this tasted like Mom's! I think using the bread instead of oatmeal as filler did the trick. Here's a great meatloaf hint: Make little meatloaves in muffin tins. Takes much less time to bake and if you put a little ketchup on for "icing", they look nice on the plate, too.

Japanese-Style Deep Fried Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
Try using panko instead of going to the trouble of finding the rice flour and potato starch. Lots of big chain supermarkets carry panko in the Asian food section. This tastes great as a breading for fish, too, and those you can broil in the oven. Good stuff!

Hudson's Baked Tilapia with Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
I am NOT a tilapia fan, so I used swai and it was great. Any kind of fish would taste good with this--even trout. It's rather like a dill tartar sauce. I have a recipe that uses just lemon juice, mayo and Tarragon on fish that my family CRAVES, so I put a little tarragon in this and it was incredible!!!

Oven Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
My husband loved these! I enjoyed them, too, but they were a little bit too oily for me. Next time, I think I'd use a little less oil--and I'd put them under the broiler so they would crisp up. Don't forget to stir them up once in a while as you're cooking so you get all sides. :)

Country Apple Dumplings

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
My review will sound like a broken record after all the others, but my family just could't believe how amazingly good these silly things are!! I've already made them twice in one week. A quick tip: do NOT buy generic crescent rolls. They were a mess to try to divide up. It's worth the time and effort to buy Pillsbury or something. Serve it warm with a little ice cream! YUM!

D's Famous Salsa

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
Lived in Texas, California and Colorado, so I know my salsas. :) This one is REALLY good. I followed the recipe except I used green chili POWDER and about 1/2 tsp of sugar. YUM. And the original poster is right--I like my salsa chunky, too, but this really tastes best when blended. Maybe you could add some diced tomatoes and onions after blending?
