Triple Berry Crisp

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
I made a 1/4 batch in 4 ramekins. I put the full amount of berries on top of the crust, no sugar, added the topping and baked for 20 min. Really good! Second time I made them I cut the butter in the crust to 1/4 C - that's 1 T per ramekin. Still really good. Thanks Polly!

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2011
This recipe is similar to what I ate in Sierra Leone, though we only had sweet potatoes. All stews like this had chopped tomatoes and sweet potato leaf. Chopped peanuts were sprinkled on top. Habenero-like chilies were widely available and made stews HOT!!! Palm oil would give this a nice color but it's hard to find in the States. Everything was cooked in iron pots over an open fire and everything was delicious! So, that's what I did to this recipe - sweet potatoes instead of potatoes, added tomatoes, used chicken and pork (though goat would have been more authentic), the garbanzos are great, and more chilies. I used a crock pot for about 5 hours on high. Thanks for the memories, Leah. It was fun making this stew!

Famous Chicken Adobo

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
This came out way too wet to put on rice. If you added some thickener it would work.

Southwestern Cactus Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2010
I'd had a jar of nopales on my shelf for quite awhile, not really knowing what to do with it. I saw this recipe and knew what to do! This recipe is just like a salsa - pretty easy, adjustable to your liking. My only thought was to cut the nopales in to small pieces to make it easier to eat.

Chocolate Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
I made this almost as written. I didn't have milk so I used half-and-half. The folks at work loved it!

Apple, Cranberry, and Pear Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2010
I added spices as suggested by others. I used Granny Smith apples, they were pretty hard, so I steamed them for 10 min before adding them to the soft ripe pears. I took a double sized batch to work and it disappeared fast. Good recipe, thanks for sharing!

Clone of a Cinnabon

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
Excellent recipe. My kid's love them! It's very important not to overcook by even a minute, otherwise they go from perfect to almost perfect.

White Bean, Spinach, and Barley Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Not bad, not spectacular. This recipe is like an empty canvas, just waiting to be painted. there are so many ways to go. Italian - add oregano and sausage. Spanish - more tomatoes and chilies. Indian - potatoes, peas and curry. Definately use broth, not water. Use this beginning to create your own masterpiece!

Blueberry Breakfast Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2009
Just like everyone else says - it's quick, it's easy and it's yummy! I did use 2 T of corn starch for a cheesecake and it turned out perfect. Thanks for the recipe.

Italian White Bean and Pancetta Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
Very good, though I didn't have any pancetta. That would have been even better.

Chocolate Truffle Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
Very chocolate. Smooth and creamy texture when underbaked slightly. Don't skimp with cheap sprinkles, this recipe deserves the best!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2008
I must admit, this recipe wasn't to my taste. If you like the chicken and vinegar combination, give this a try. The chicken came out perfect.

Slow Cooker Chicken Creole

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2008
Made this just as written. The family thought it was OK. The chicken was cooked to perfection. Just needed more spicing up?

Red Lentil Curry

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2008
Actually I would give it 4 1/2 stars rather than 5. It was very good, but also very thick and pasty. I served it on rice as suggested. Lots of leftovers! Next time I'll thin it a bit and maybe not cook the lentils so long.

Aebleskiver

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2007
I've had very good results using this recipe. I think beating the egg whites and folding them in is what makes the difference. My daughter loves making these and does a better job turning the 'skivers than I do!
