Dave's Coleslaw

Reviewed: May 17, 2010
Awesome coleslaw! I made it exactly as the recipe stated except to halve the amount... but I forgot to halve the pickle juice, vinegar and mustard, I put the whole 2 tbsp of each. So it was a touch tangy. Next time I'll get that right. I really like what the dill pickles imparted to the flavor though. I've never made nor had coleslaw with dill pickles but I think this recipe is definitely a keeper! Good job!

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Amazing!!! I went ahead and decreased the flour to 1 cup like a lot of people have and instead of walnuts I added peanut butter chips and semi-sweet morsels. These came out so good! They taste absolutely delicious and they're so moist and soft and... well, perfect! I'm definitely going to use this as the base for my brownies from now on. Thanks!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2009
Wow! Absolutely delicious! For once I followed a recipe exactly. I forgot to look at any of the reviews, just looked at the stars, and the ingredient flavors looked good to me, so I went with it. Ok well, I changed a couple minor things. Had no fresh ginger, so used minced ginger from a jar, and I used chicken tenderloins instead of full breasts. I will use fresh ginger next time because I like having things to chew :) Anyway, this was just superb! My sauce didn't thicken, but I have no doubt that it would have, had I let it cook longer. The brown sugar in it seemed to be caramelizing, which I'm sure would have helped thicken it up. I really wanted to have sauce to put over the rice though, so I didn't let it get too thick. I will be making this again, probably in a much bigger quantity, because my husband and I ate it all!

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2008
I thought this was quite delicious. Even my husband loved it and he doesn't like sweet potatoes. I did make a couple changes, though I didn't want to make them. I had no curry paste, so I used some powdered red curry from my spice rack. It added a good flavor, but I definitely want to do it with curry paste next time. Also, I used jarred fresh minced ginger instead of sliced root because I didn't have any root. And I blended some of the potato up (I was using leftover boiled from Thanksgiving) but not completely, so there were still some lumps and stuff, for character. I definitely want to make this again, but exactly by the recipe next time.

Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2008
Yummy! I used your recipe and also some of the suggestions in the comments. I used a can of veggie soup (not condensed) instead of the mixed veggies, I seasoned my ground beef with Worcestershire sauce, garlic and onion powder and salt and pepper. I also added some frozen corn to the mix. Lastly, I topped the potatoes (which were whipped in milk and butter) with a 5 cheese shredded mix. I got rave reviews and everyone went back for seconds, except me, I was stuffed :)

Pepperoni Pizza Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
I thought the flavor in this quiche was pretty good. Definitely not a quiche I've had before. I did make a couple changes. I used a frozen pie crust, milk instead of half and half, and pepper jack cheese instead of the swiss. The only issue I had was that after the 25-30 min, the egg still wasn't properly cooked through. I had to cook it an extra 15 minutes before a knife came out clean, but even then, once everything was done and we cut into it to eat, the egg still seemed a bit soft. It was cooked enough to eat, so we still ate it, but I definitely have to put the temp up a bit next time if I want it done in a decent amount of time. Atleast now it will reheat in the microwave without getting over done though :)

Chewy Peanut Butter Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
Delicious! The only thing I changed was adding some chocolate chips. Hubby loved them! Thanks for the great recipe :)

Cincinnati Chili I

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2008
I cooked this chili for a couple friends and my husband and they all said it was good. It's definitely a unique flavor. Hubby and I decided this is very much a cold, winter day chili or a rainy afternoon chili, something like that. The spices make it taste almost like something you'd eat around the holidays. I really wanted chili that night, so I didn't let it sit, but there's more leftover and hubby and I are eagerly waiting to see how much better it is when the flavors have time to meld together. The few changes I made were, I didn't put onions in, I served them as topper choice. I used one lb gr.beef and one lb gr.pork, because that's what I had. I added the extra tbsp of cinnamon I saw a lot of people recommend, and I also used 3 tbsp cocoa powder instead of a block of baking cocoa because again, that's all I had. The last change was probably partially my fault. I picked the biggest stockpot in my kitchen to make this in because my normal chili has a lot of things in it that make it come up very high in the pot, so after it started simmering, a lot of the liquid was coming off and I got worried it was going to burn because it wasn't very deep at all in the pot. I added a 29 ounce can of crushed tomato about 20 minutes before it was done, to get some liquid in there. Even with all these changes, I think I still got a good idea of how this was supposed to taste. Definitely a hearty chili, and not spicy at all. I'm glad I went ahead and made the spaghetti to go with it (even

Salmon Fillets with Creamy Dill

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2008
Yummy! I made this sauce for two smaller pieces of salmon and then tossed the rest with penne pasta and peas. It was delicious! I loved the flavor on my fish. The only things I did different were, I ran out of mayo so I added some creamy horseradish sauce, I used Deli-style mustard because that's all we had, and I didn't use thyme because I didn't have any. I still loved the recipe and hubby wants me to make it again :)

Chile Garlic BBQ Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
This was delicious! I had to make a couple changes to the recipe. I had no chile sauce, so I used chili oil instead, and not a whole tbsp, because that would have been WAY too much heat! Also, I had no green onions to top it with, and instead of grilling, I put it in the oven at about 450 for 18 minutes wrapped in a foil pouch. It was so good, and still let the flavor of the salmon through. Hubby absolutely loved it! I put this over pineapple jasmine rice and served with an Asian-inspired cucumber salad. I will definitely be making this again!

Baingan Bharta (Eggplant Curry)

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2008
This was delicious! I love Indian food, but this was only my second time actually making anything Indian. I did substitute sour cream for the yogurt, but only because there was no plain yogurt at the grocery store. Also no jalapenos, so I used a red chili pepper. I left the skin on my eggplant because I happen to like it that way. And since I had no ginger-garlic paste, I just used a few cloves of fresh garlic, pressed, and some ginger powder. The smell as it was all cooking was SO wonderful. The taste was great, very flavorful. It did seem like something was missing though...I just couldn't put my finger on it. Either way, I'll be making this again ^_^

Flan II

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
This flan came out very good. The consistency was nice and light and tasted great. I did add a little vanilla and a slightly generous amount of rum, lol. The caramel, unfortunately, did not turn out very good. I'm assuming I burnt it a little. It's not horrible, but it definitely has that burnt flavor to it and some of it hardened in all my custard cups (which was kind of hard to clean up :P). So you might want to have the custard mixture ready to pour in right after the caramel is in the cups? I think next time I might try that maple syrup/brown sugar thing I saw mentioned, or just be careful not to cook it too long if I experiment with the sugar caramel again. Definitely would make this again. Also, this is probably not for those that think of flan as very sweet and rich.

Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2007
Tastes great! It seemed like it needed just a little bit more time to cook, maybe 75 minutes. I did alter it, but only slightly because I do like nuts in mine, so I added a couple handfuls of chopped pecans. Great recipe though, I'll use this one again :)
