Carmel's Crunchy Pea Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
This is good, mom's is better. You really can't put the cashews and bacon in too long before serving - cause the texture is just all wrong when they have sat in the sour cream. We always use water chestnuts instead of the boring celery - and the salt and pepper should have measurements - because when you say "to taste" to people and they call the salad too bland - well does anyone else think that could be a seasoning issue? We added enough salt and pepper that it wasn't boring - but really - I have to call mom to get the real recipe, because I remember this being super tasty around her table. Thanks for trying...

My husband says this is a "keeper" as he wolfs down his second burger. I fully agree! Thanks!

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
We just made a double batch of these based on all you people's rave reviews. How nice to have doubled it! Now we have patties made and in the freezer ready to toss in the pan for yummy breakfasts! The only change we made was to use half ground turkey with the pork. Yum Yum!

Key Lime Cookies I

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2009
Super yummy! We only had one egg, so I skipped the extra yolk. We didn't have butter, so I used shortening - and they were still great! Thanks!

Jill's Summer Sangria

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
We really liked this. I added fresh pineapple, pears and kiwi to the strawberries. We used non-alcoholic red wine as I had conscientious objectors at my party. For the rum I substituted as follows for each two cups of rum: 2 cups fresh apple juice, 2 T rum extract, 2 T almond extract, 1/4 cup dark molasses. We loved this sangria, and everyone was trying to get me to let them take some home. Fat chance, it is in my fridge.

Gorgonzola and Olive Stuffed Grape Leaves

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
My husband has held that he would NEVER enjoy Gorgonzola and has turned it down every time it infiltrated his food - but this he loved! In fact, everyone at the party loved this - even those who appeared to be less than enthusiastic about "whatever was in those leaves." Try it! It takes a little time, but isn't hard to wrap up the leaves (they don't tear on you.) Yummy! Intensely yummy!

Mediterranean Greek Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Perfect! It made a large batch, so if you are not feeding a whole dinner party, you should modify the amounts as it needs to be eaten within 24 hours of putting together or the cucumbers won't survive. By all means try this out!

Magaricz

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
The flavor is great, but it doesn't present so well. Also, make half a batch for goodness sake! This would feed an army!

Panna Cotta

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
This was the hit of the evening. It came out of the molds easily and was gorgeous not to mention creamy, rich and decadent. I used 1/2 cup skim, 1 cup heavy cream and the rest whole milk. Also, I used honey instead of sugar to make it meet a friends dietary needs. I would highly recommend the honey! It was wonderful! Even my non-cooking guests desired this recipe and ate every bite after groaning that they had no room for desert! Don't douse it with chocolate sauce, just serve it with a slice of fruit and let the sweet dairy shine through!

Halibut-Mango Ceviche

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
The flavors were perfect, but learn from my mistake! I used frozen mango, which tasted fine, but didn't hold its shape and got a bit mushy. Not so appetizing in appearance. Stick with fresh, it will be worth it! Also, we used scallops instead of halibut and loved the results!

Lumpfish Caviar Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
Quite honestly, this looked a great deal more impressive than it tasted. We liked it fine, but will chose a tastier treat next time we want to splurge.

Mediterranean Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2009
We spread about 2 T minced garlic over the salmon, brushed with olive oil and balsamic (not the whole amount) and covered with chopped fresh basil. We baked without turning instead of broiling. It couldn't have been better.

Olive Spread Snackers

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2009
I added about 10 green olives instead of the salt and skipped the sour cream. We loved this - and so did everyone at the party we took it to. Thanks!

Tonkatsu / Katsu Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I like this. It is a bit different from the one my local hawaian grill makes, and I will keep tweaking until I get it closer. Theirs is a tad less "ketchupy" and looks darker. A different base maybe? Anyway - this is a good version and we will use it happily.

Sukhothai Pad Thai

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
I loved this! We didn't have chives, so I used green onions. I used grated tempeh instead of tofu because it gets accpeted better by my husband - and it was fantastic! We will eat this againa and again!
