Avocado Green Goddess Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
My husband liked this dressing alright, but I didn't care for it at all. Maybe using half sour cream like some of the reviewers did would help, but I just found it really salty, thick, and fishy-tasting as written. The avocado flavor is almost nonexistent. I tried adding more lemon and thinning it a little, but in the end I used another dressing on my salad and let my husband eat this one alone. Sorry! Thanks for letting me try it. :)

Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
This was good. A little boozy-tasting for me, even after cooking for a while, so I mellowed it with a little chicken broth at the end, and it turned out fine. My husband is a big Marsala fan and he really loved it. Thanks!

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Yum! We loved this one. I was also cooking this recipe for a diabetic, so I used Splenda instead of sugar and it came out great. Thanks!

Italian Gravy

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Very good. I would definitely cube my pork next time, as it took a really long time to break down into manageable pieces. Also, you'll probably want to cook this uncovered for about half of the time to let the sauce reduce - it's quite watery if kept covered the entire time. Still, we enjoyed it with these changes, so I would likely make it again. Thanks for the recipe!

Basil Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
Excellent, easy, light-tasting dressing. I found that it needed a little salt and pepper - and that it's twice as good the next day (which is true of most vinaigrettes, anyway). Thanks for the recipe!

Malaysian Beef Rendang

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
We really loved this. I followed this recipe as written except I made mine in a stockpot rather than the wok, which I think helped to cook it more evenly and keep it from sticking or burning. Loved the coconut and spices - will definitely make this again. Thanks!

Cheese Ravioli with Pumpkin Sage Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
This is a really great idea. Not quite enough pumpkin or sage for me as written, so I added a little more of each. I think this recipe could be fantastic with a homemade Alfredo where there is more room for preference adjustments. I served my sauce over mushroom ravioli and added toasted pecans. Thanks for the recipe!

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
These are good. I left my mushroom pieces bigger because I like a little texture. Otherwise made as written. Great base for lots of variations! Thanks for the recipe.

BREAKSTONE'S Creamy Avocado Dip

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
This was too salty and Ranch-y for us as written. I ended up adding another avocado to it and it turned out great. Thanks for the recipe!

Beef and Bean Chimichangas

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
Yum! I followed this recipe as written, subbing green chiles for the green pepper, and tossing the whole shebang together rather than putting the cheese, beans, and meat mixture into the tortillas seperately. I quadrupled the recipe, fried some tonight, and will freeze a bunch to bake or fry later. Very good, thanks!

Chocolate Cherry Cake with Rum Ganache

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2009
Excellent! I made this cake as written, except used mini chips instead of the chopped chocolate inside the cake and use rum flavoring instead of rum for the ganache. Mine did not turn at all red like the photo, so I'm thinking there was some food coloring used there. I made this for my husband to take to work - and it was almost gone by 11am. Thanks for the recipe!

Mexican Veggies with Queso

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2009
Yum! I made this as written except for cutting my veggies a little chunkier than called for because I like them barely cooked - and I also put the chopped tomatoes at the very end because I had a tomato-hater in the house. This was my first time eating hot jicama and I really liked it in this. Asedero cheese behaves similarly to an American processed cheese, so subbing with a processed Jack cheese would bring you close to the intentional flavor and texture of this dish if you are unable to get Asedero . Thanks for the recipe - delicious!

Seafood Marinara Pasta

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Delicious! I made this as written, only adding black pepper and crushed red pepper for a little heat. The sauce is wonderful and the seafood is perfectly cooked. I threw a little chopped parsley on when I served this. Excellent! Thanks for the recipe!

15-Year-Old Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Very good basic pesto. Slightly heavyhanded on the salt, but I didn't find it way too salty. We had this with tomatoes and goat cheese tonight, and I plan to use it with a pasta next week. Thanks for the recipe!

Emerald Fruit Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
This is really good. I made this as written, and I would cut down the sugar just a little next time, and possibly use lime zest (because it's *green*). Thanks for the recipe!
