Restaurant Style Beef and Broccoli

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2014
I reallllly wanted to give this 5 stars. The ingredients were perfect, and this is not any easy recipe to get right. But there were a couple problems. First off, who in their right mind saute's fresh garlic and ginger simply to throw it away?? Makes no sense - I minced it, sautee'd it and added it to the marinate. Second, the amount of marinate would be suitable for a recipe that uses, say 1/2 lb. of steak instead of 3/4. It's just not quite enough sauce as written. Lots of reviewers swear that you need to double the marinate. Well, I doubled the marinate and it was far too much - it was overpowering. I only get a hankering for Chinese food about once a year, and my son doesn't care for it at all. So when I make this again next year, I will follow the recipe but reduce the steak and broccoli amounts, and add the garlic & ginger to the marinate.

Spinach and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2014
Lacking depth as is. If you want to make this dish taste like fine restaurant quality, do not reconstitute the sd tomatoes. Eliminate the broth altogether. Boil your penne to al dente. Then saute your garlic, onion, & red pepper flakes. After that, toss ALL ingredients together (do NOT pre-wilt the baby spinach, add it raw), and add in FRESH LEMON JUICE ("that extra something") and enough olive oil to very lightly coat, and maybe some cooked shrimp for a main course. It is also good with toasted walnuts if you don't want to spring on pine nuts. Sprinkle with FRESH shredded, not grated, parm or none at all. It will make the flavors pop instead of melting in or tasting powdery. This is how I made it for a dinner special as a restaurant cook and it was my most requested dish.

Pumpkin Spice Cookie

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
These aren't cookies. I've even tried adding sugar (which helps cookies spread in true cookie recipes), egg and a stick of butter - it didn't help. They taste good, but they just aren't cookies

Cinnamon Popcorn II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
Not as "red hot" as I thought it would be (much of that flavor cooked off), but I think what makes it addicting is that little hit of "red hot" you get after the first bite!

Cardamom Carrots

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2011
This one's a keeper! I didn't measure so I think I may have overdone the orange peel - it almost completely hid the carrot flavor instead of enhancing it. But no matter because the flavor was still fabulous and I will be making this often!
