Asian Salmon Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2011
I pretty much made this recipe as the directions indicated and my husband & I were pleased with the way it turned out. The dressing is unexpectedly delicious, I'll be using the leftovers to marinate shrimp for tomorrow's dinner. I think the only thing that I was disappointed in was the texture (kind of slimy), but that may have been a result of how thinly I sliced all the vegetables. I think next time I'll add fresh pineapple (though, on second thought it may overpower it) and maybe some almond slivers or soy beans to add more crunch. All in all, a very flavorful salad that we'll make our own. BTW, we paired it with spring rolls to make it a heartier, albeit, fresh, dinner.

Salad with Artichokes

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2009
I don't normally follow recipes to a tee but I did this time (well, almost - I did add roasted chicken AND forgo the onions). Well, I loved the dressing - but like others have mentioned, I, too have a palate that prefers acidity, spice, and salt. I didn't feel that the dressing was too salty, by the way - though it did smell potent, it tasted wonderful and looked elegant. It really was a delightful explosion of flavor (for a salad) that made that boring chicken come alive. As a matter of fact, I think I might try the dressing as a marinade!

Chicken Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
This gets four stars because I nearly completely diverged from the recipe. Rather than chicken, I used beef. Vegetables I used: broccoli, carrots, green onion, shitake mushrooms, bok choy. In the future I will not coat the meat in the corn starch, but rather add it to the broth... it left clumps of starch in the sauce. Other additions (because the original recipe struck me as too bland) were garlic salt, a little more soy sauce, and fresh minced garlic. (What can I say... I like sodium.) Served over fried egg noodles and it was scrumptious! This is a great recipe to get inspiration from and use as a template to make your own Asian-inspired meals.

Sherry Sour Cream Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2008
Made this last night, and it was delicious! I followed the recipe for the most part. Browned the chicken in butter for 25 minutes or so and removed them from the pan. Followed the measurements in the recipe for sour cream and sherry. I don't measure my spices, but I did use dry rosemary and thyme, salt & pepper as suggested in the recipe; also added Red Robin's seasoning (my "secret" ingredient) & chicken boullion to the sauce. Right before placing it all in the oven, I threw in a can of mushrooms over the chicken and smothered it all in the sauce. Left it in the oven for 15-20 minutes (to let the chicken cook completely through), and "voila!" Served it with short grain brown rice. Boyfriend loved it, we practically licked the oven dish clean. Next time, I'll use fresh rosemary. I think I'll use this sauce for lots of other things as well (mmmm, like mashed potatoes) - it's THAT good!

Candied Carrots

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2008
I didn't add salt or pepper, but I loved it! I half wanted to drink the brown sugar and butter mixture that the carrots were simmering in - but I restrained myself. Deliciously reminiscent of The Cracker Barrel's sweet baby carrots.
