Thai Steamed Mussels

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2012
Just what the Dr. ordered. Hubby has the flu and this spicy curry made him melt. As written, this is pretty mild. If you like your Thai food hot, add a sliced chili or another tablespoon of curry. I used light coconut milk, half the cilantro and half the mussels for 2. For texture I added rice noodles, shitake mushrooms and edamame. Superduper delicious. Thank you for posting this recipe!!

Monkfish Provincial

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
Liked it even better with capers and cous cous. Didn't really need that much butter.

Miso and Soy Chilean Sea Bass

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
This marinade makes a glorious reduction. Don't pour it out! The green onions are a must. Perfect ying and yang. Thank you!

Polenta Corn Bake

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
I agree that the recipe needs some oomph. I make a similar dish with black beans and diced tomatoes with green chilis. Corn would be a nice addition. If the intent is Italian, maybe a pinch of crushed red pepper and some olives?

Moroccan Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2011
Even though I dislike cooking with prepared soup, I wanted to try this recipe because I had most of the ingredients. I used dried apricots and cashews, instead of raisins and almonds, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I felt it needed a bit more kick, so added a little cayenne and white pepper at the end. A sprinkle of cilantro helped provide contrast. Easy and good. Paired it with couscous.

Flourless Chocolate Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
Following the directions carefully are important to your results in this recipe. Your cake should not be crumbly or dry on top. The water bath moderates the cooking of the egg custard so you end up with something more like creamy fudge with a nice, dense firmness. Fresh fruit takes the edge off of the richness. As others have said, use good chocolate. It's worth it when you watch your guests eat this with their eyes closed!

Apple Pecan Cobbler

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2010
Solid, basic recipe, but did need some oomph. I added nutmeg and increased the cinnamon to 1 tsp. I grated about 1/2 tsp fresh ginger into the melted butter to infuse it. Be sure to use real butter. Also, before you get everything assembled, check the gadget drawer to make sure you have one of those pointy can poker-openers. I had one heck of a time getting the evap milk can open!!

Vegan Hot and Sour Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2010
Best hot and sour recipe I've found yet! Might have been my broth, but I found 3 tbs of soy sauce to be 1 too many. Everything else was perfect. I think the white pepper is very important, so would not recommend leaving that out. Add sliced scallions before serving. Delicious.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
Good basic recipe that can be revved up to match your individual taste. Perfect potluck dish. I used coconut milk instead of broth and chili garlic paste instead of chili flakes. Made a double batch and topped it with bean sprouts, julienned cukes, cilantro, green onion and chopped peanuts. Napa cabbage or bok choy slivered on top would add some crunch too. Thanks!

Arugula Salad with Cannellini Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2009
This is delicious. I had some beautiful arugula and started searching for recipes. Thank goodness I found this. Hubby is a vegetarian, so I sometimes struggle for new recipes. I made this one exactly as printed, but added a little onion with the garlic. The wine, garlic and tomatoes are a lovely counterpoint to the spicy arugula. I think the cheese is a must. =) Thanks, Kim!

Smoked Salmon Alfredo Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2009
A bit rich for our taste. I made a roux and used milk instead of the heavy cream. I really like the tomatoes with the parsley and smoked salmon. Great combo.

Savory Mushroom-Barley Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2009
This recipe is a very solid, basic recipe, but like the other reviewers, I kicked it up a bit. I used mushroom broth and shitakes. I added garlic, cayenne and about two tsps of white wine worcesterhire sauce. To serve, I topped with toasted baguette and grated gruyere. Perfect!

Louisiana Crawfish Etouffee

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2009
So easy, quick and so very good! I like it a bit spicier, so I used Penzey's hot cajun seasoning. It was just right. Two other mods just to please our palate: A little less onion, a little more garlic. Thanks for sharing!

Acorn Squash Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2008
Great way to begin Fall! This is a terrific recipe. Instead of bacon, I garnished with toasted pine nuts and a bit of crumbled bleu cheese. We practically licked our bowls. Yum!

Linda's Blue Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2007
Good, but did need some doctoring. I used 1/2 cup buttermilk to make it thicker and more parmesan cheese. I used fresh Italian parsley instead of dried. I added salt and pepper. Now I like it!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2007
I don't know why I've bought pancakes in a box all these years . . . these are the best! Although when I converted the recipe to 4 servings, my hubby and I devoured the whole thing so keep that in mind!

Turkey Goulash

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
This recipe reminds me of my childhood! I also added a sprinkling of crushed red pepper, along with a little smoked paprika. I like to put it in a casserole dish, sprinkle cheese on top and brown it lightly in the broiler prior to serving.
