Balsamic Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2009
great- i was surprised- i thought it would be more tart- but the sugar melded out the flavors quite nicely- i did add more garlic and a touch more sugar.

Honey-Orange Marinated Salmon

Reviewed: May 16, 2008
great easy weeknight recipe- i marinated for 1.5 hours- more than enough- added 2 cloves of minced garlic and increased the OJ by a dash and decresed the soy sauce by a smidge... reduced the marinating sauce for 7 min on boil with 1 tsp of cornstarch- strained and served on the side. instead of grilling, i usually pan fry my salmon for 3 min on each side.

Blueberry Scones

Reviewed: Feb. 29, 2008
sticky dough, but great end product- try a little bit of orange or lemon zest with the blueberries. it gives a nice twist.

No Fail Pie Crust III

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2007
absolutely perfect- the crust turned out flaky, crisp and flavorful! a little hard to work with, but well worth the effort. just make sure to keep your butter frozen, your water/egg cold, and when it starts getting too warm, take a break and put the whole thing in the freezer for 15 min.

Beet Salad with Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2007
great salad- a hit at a big summer potluck. roasted the beets for 1 hour- 400 degrees. doubled the walnuts, used feta cheese and added orange slices as well. also- i just made a basic balsamic vinaigrette and added orange juice to the beets to give a citrus punch.

Breakfast Sausage

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2007
i used this recipe in conjunction with the alton brown recipe- used 3 t fresh sage, 3 t fresh thyme and 1 t fresh rosemary, plus more 1/4t red pepper flakes for kick. let sit overnight to let the flavors meld- and at the end i used a dollop of maple syrup to give it some extra sweetness and moisture.

Hot Artichoke and Spinach Dip II

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
i made a few of the said changes and i wish that i had stuck with the original recipe. i sub'ed the mayo with sour cream, and, fearing a dry dip, i didnt squeeze the spinach completely dry. as a result, it turned out very loose, but with great flavor. the next day, it was better "set" and it tasted divine. add a healthy dose of cayenne and real garlic.

Fruited Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
missing something- tasty, but lacked kick. i sub 1/2 cup of low fat yogurt, and then 1/4 cup of mayo. used 1 tsp honey, 3 tsps of curry, juice of 1/2 lemon... maybe 1/2 tsp of ground ginger, cooked the onions to mellow out... might try more spice next time

Mexican Rice II

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2006
this recipe made me (a transplanted texan in russia) feel like I was home again! i browned the onions first, then added the rice- stir fry till fragrant (it will lose its transparent look... i think the "puffy" phrase is misleading.) i only used 2 cups of liquid (1:2 ratio is a must in rice cooking!!) i used a combo of chicken broth and reconstituted sun-dried tomato water and tomato juice. with a 1/2tsp of chili powder- this was perfect!
