King Crab Appetizers

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
Added 2 cans crab, lemon, tabasco and garlic powder to the mix. Forgot to pick up phyllo cups at store so made my own with puff pastry dough. They burned a bit but were still good. Phyllo cups next time for sure!

Southwestern Egg Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2010
The filling in this was good but maybe needs a little more moisture. I used a whole can of black beans and used egg roll wrappers. Lightly baked and then refrigerated for party next day. Came out soggy from fridge and when I heated back up, they were kind of rubbery. Have to try a different method next time.

Slow Cooker Chicken Taco Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
This was very good - definitely more stew like than soup like but that's not a problem for us. I think I put a little too much chicken in but I can adjust that for next time.

Simple Roasted Chickpea Snack

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This was very good. I've also seen a sweet version that can be made with sugar and cinnamon. Glad to see that you can use canned, I made mine with dried chickpeas that were soaked overnight.

Lime Chicken with Cilantro Cream Sauce and Roasted Zucchini

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2009
This was delicious! I have to say that I only made the chicken portion of this and we ate it with rice. I think the sauce would be delicious with shrimp as well The only other change I made besides amounts (I used 4 pieces of chicken and increased liquid amounts) was to add a jalapeno to the garlic/cilantro mixture. For the future, double the sauce because it's yummy!

Cranberry Orange Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
I make this into muffins - very good recipe. I forgo the hot water and up the oj to 3/4 cup. I also chop up the cranberries to get berry goodness throughout the muffin. Make sure to bake at 325...I keep burning mine because I'm used to baking muffins at 400!

Lemon Parmesan Spaghetti

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2009
This was nothing special, it ended up coming out pretty thick and I went easy on the lemon due to other reviews but it really should have more in it. I also added some garlic and white wine but it still wasn't extremely flavorful.

Key West Penne

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2009
I really liked this - probably would have been better with the real cream but I used half and half. Sadly, the rest of my family doesn't care for artichokes so I don't get to cook with them very often. I thought the rest of this recipe might sway them but it didn't work :( I tried to punch up the flavor by using garlic, red pepper and basil but it wasn't enough. I'll spice it up a little more next time, maybe even add a little lemon juice.

Savory Sausage Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2009
This seems like it would make a good base recipe but currently it comes out very bland and dry. I even added some spices to it based on other's suggestions but that didn't seem to work. If anyone has any ideas on how improve it, please post!

Bourbon-Mango Pulled Pork

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
Rave reviews from guests on this. Was a little bit too spicy so I need to adjust next time. I think I used too much of the chili powder in combination with Stubb's spicy sauce. Otherwise, followed recipe exactly. Yummy - thanks!

Pear and Blue Cheese Pastry Triangles

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2009
This was absolutely delicious and went fast at my party. I cut it into triangles and then folded the points over. I also only needed one pear. Thanks!

Curried Mustard Greens with Kidney Beans

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
This dish was amazing. I think they need to be cooked a little longer than stated in the recipe and I didn't chop them up well enough. Next time I will chop much finer but otherwise, followed the recipe exactly and it was fantastic.

Sweet and Savory Kale

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2009
This was very good - I didn't add the nuts because I thought it would be too much but next time I might try some of them toasted. Maybe even pine nuts instead of almonds would be good. I also think this would be great with golden raisins instead of craisins. I used half the sugar and it was still too sweet so I will reduce it next time.

Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2009
This was delicious - very much like a sweet potato french fry but with a different flavor. Like many people, I cut it up in cubes and mixed it with the olive oil and spices. I'm sure cutting it in half would be fine but this way there's a lot more flavor mixed in and it's not so sweet potatoey (I'm actually not a big fan). Thanks!

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2009
I cut these into halves or quarters depending on how big they are. I also added a little bit of balsamic and garlic powder (didn't have any fresh). My favorite parts are the little leaves that fall off and get crispy - mmmm, good!

Tequila Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
This was pretty good - I took the suggestions of a lot of people and mixed beer and tequila and added the juice of a lime. I also added red pepper and some cubano. I didn't really get the tequila flavor at first, but it came through a little more at the end.

Bierocks (German Meat Turnovers)

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
Filling was good - I added red pepper and a little dill and cumin seed since I didn't have any caraway. A tad bit bland so I will spice up further next time. Also, I added a 3 cheese blend. Couldn't find frozen bread dough so I used empanada wrappers - I'd really like to try the bread dough next time. Someone said just to use the rolls since they're already individual, I will try that. This made a lot which is great because I will freeze the extra for snacks.

Pistachio Crusted Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
Came out a bit salty - I have to remember to reduce the salt because the pistachios already have it in. Other than that, it was pretty good! Made some raspberry sauce to go with it - raspberry jam, red wine vinegar and some red pepper flakes.
