Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2014
The whole family enjoyed this quite a bit. Made a few minor substitutions- didn't have hoisin like I thought, so used teriyaki sauce. Put in a squirt of lime juice in the dressing. Purposefully used fried chow mein noodles because the husband has had a hankering for them. And cooked the chicken in sesame oil and a little teriyaki in a saute pan. Otherwise everything was the same and quite delicious! We think next time we'd like to add avocado, even though that's more California fusion than Chinese, but we think the creamy fattiness of the avocado would pair nicely with the spicy and bright flavors.

Cucumber Avocado Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2012
Really delicious! I added cherry tomatoes like one of the pictures had- it didn't add tons of flavor, but the color really popped. I also didn't bother draining the mixture before adding the vinegar and saw no issues. The whole family, including the almost 3 year old, loved it!

Baked Dijon Salmon

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
My salmon took a little longer to cook than I expected since I had a 1.3. lb fillet. I tried to broil it, which made the topping nice and crunchy (and cooked the fish through) but it parts of the topping got a little burnt. I also only had walnuts & sunflower seeds- I'm sure pecans would be awesome. Overall though, really tasty. (Our side dish might have upstaged the fish.)

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2012
Really delicious! I only had chopped walnuts and the reaction was still "next time buy more broccoli- I could have eaten a lot more of this." Next time I'll be excited to try with cashews, but otherwise keep it the same. (I did steam the broccoli instead of boil them- but it was close to the same thing, and the sauce was quite delicious.)

Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Simple and a snap to make- and delicious to eat! I love the traditional anise flavor! I used my pizza stone (put in the oven while preheating to make it good and hot for baking) and found it to be a snap. No need to grease and great for the second baking with the biscotti on their bottoms with the sides exposed and some space between slices.

Almond Biscotti

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
Simple and delicious! I made the recipe with a little less sugar, and closer to 3 C. of flour. I used almond extract (same amount) and just mixed in the almonds to the dough- no milk needed. They were really good, especially after I drizzled with milk chocolate!

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2011
I used a different frosting to fill these (Philly cream cheese frosting recipe from their red velvet cupcakes online) but the cakes from this recipe were fantastic. Moist, spicy, and SO tasty!
