Phenomenal Chicken and Pasta in Creamy Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
This recipe was hands down PHENOMENAL!!!! Sadly I had no sundried tomatoes so I went with regular tomatoes, but it turned out just as wonderful!!!! You can do this with shrimp/prawns as well and it still tastes fantastic!!! Definitely lived up to it's titled name! Thank you for this recipe!

Thai Red Chicken Curry

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
This recipe was delicious! I got excellent reviews from my husband, though we did make some alterations to the original posted recipe. For example: I left out the zucchini, bell peppers and carrots. Instead, I used a bit extra garlic, green onions/spring onions, yellow onions, bok choy, mushrooms. I also omitted the cornstarch as I saw no need for it. The sauce thickened nicely. Recipe turned out wonderfully tasty!

Malaysian Chinese Style Pasta

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2008
This recipe was quite good, but I did it a bit differently....I used chicken breasts that I put in the food processor and pulsed until it resembled minced chicken. (Worked great) Couple of bulbs of minced garlic in the oil with the onions and meat. Instead of chili oil, I omitted the sugar all together and used Sweet Chili Sauce. Added some bok choy and carrots towards the last couple of minutes. A splash of Fish Sauce/Patis and some freshly chopped cilantro. It was a big hit.

Indian Chicken Curry II

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2008
It was a very good curry recipe, though there were some alterations that I had to make. I did not use curry powder, instead I used yellow curry paste, double the garlic. I added a nice sized potato, peeled and chunked into small chunks, I added 1/2 cup of white wine, and 3/4 cup of chicken broth to keep the sauce a bit liquidy. I omitted the paprika and the recipe came out stunning, served over Basmati rice.

Simple Garlic and Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2008
I followed the recipe to a T the first time I made this, I did not enjoy the taste of the Brazil nuts and found it extremely oily. On the second attempt, I omitted the Brazil nuts, used roasted pine nuts, and a lot less oil and found it much better tasting :) I suggest as others have, to add the parm cheese when ready to serve, otherwise it causes your pesto to spoil faster. Cheers!

Spanish Rice II

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
Very nice, only alterations were that I omitted chili powder, used chili flakes. I love garlic, so I had to use 3-4 cloves of it minced while sautee'ing the onions in it. I omitted bell peppers, taste preference. I used 1 cup water 1 cup chicken broth. Excellent taste.

Meatball Sandwich

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
This recipe was wonderfully yummy! I got heaps of rave reviews from my partner and stubborn 6 year old. I made just a few adjustments... Lessoned the Italian herbs. I used 2 eggs I had no parm...and I really wanted meatballs so we subbed mozz cheese, just a bit. I forgot..sub rolls...we had them as is. I added 3 cloves of raw garlic to the meatball mix.

Szechwan Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
This recipe got rave reviews at home :) However I did make a few alterations. Alterations: I doubled the sauce...ie... 8 tablespoons of water. 2 tablespoons of sweet chili sauce 1 tablespoon of ketchup 2 tablespoons of soy sauce 2 teaspoons of honey I used 3 slices of fresh ginger root as well as the ground. 6-8 cloves of garlic 1/4 cup of white wine. I kept the spice to same due to having a small child and just adjusted on my own plate. I omitted the cornstarch, I found no need for it. The sauce thickened lovely on it's own. I used beef instead of shrimp. All in all excellent recipe :)

Angel's Old Fashioned Beef Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2008
This recipe is good to give you an idea of how to make Beef Stew. I had to make several altercations to this, as to just looking at the ingredients showed it to be a bland recipe. Alterations I used that made this a hit all around. I increased the garlic powder used, to nearly triple. Used the salt and pepper to own preferential tastes. I dredged the meat as intstructed, but in the oil I'd minced up about 3 cloves of fresh garlic. After the meat was done, I added in another clove of minced garlic, and quickly seasoned/fried up the celery/carrots/I used 2 medium onions opposed to boiling ones/potatoes. You don't do this very long, you want the veggies a bit browned, seasonsed and coated. I put the 3 cups of broth in a sauce pan and brought it to a boil with 2 cloves of minced garlic inside the broth. I also added about a half teaspoon of each Italian herbs, Rosemary, Thyme and Oregano. Boiled the meat and broth for 45 minutes, then I added 1/2 cup white wine and the vegetables we'd sauteed earlier. Brought it all to a boil, simmered for 30 minutes. I found no need to add any other fluids/flours to thicken or thin this recipe.

Bulgogi (Korean Barbecued Beef)

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
Being Korean, and having eaten original Bulgogi, this is by far the best. Although, my heart is set on Pork bulgogi. Few adjustments to personal seasoning/flavor, but by far the best of all I've tried.

Vietnamese Beef And Lettuce Curry

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2008
Wouldn't consider this "Curry" by any means...more like a taco salad as some reviews have quoted, but boy does it taste much better than regular taco seasoning!

Baxis White Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2008
This recipe has proven to be the most tasty bread of the ones I've prevriously tried. Only difference that I make is I use 1c of milk as opposed to 3/4 cup of water. It makes a petite loaf of bread that is absolutely perfect.

Adobo Chicken with Ginger

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2008
I made this recipe last night and I got RAVE reviews from my husband, but I did make some adjustments...My step mother is from the heart of Manila and I remember going to Manila and spending lots of time there being cooked for by everyone...so my memory of Chicken Adobo was a bit different... I used 1 cup of chicken stock/broth instead of water. 1/4 cup of White Wine, 1/4 cup of Orange juice, 2 small potatoes. I also chose to brown the chicken in a pan with a bit of oil, garlic, onion and ginger and then added it to the cup of chicken stock/broth in the sauce pan. I did the same with the potatoes, letting them simmer for about 8 minutes before adding them to the mixture. Then I added the rest of the onion (I used one medium sized yellow onion.), garlic and ginger. As far as the vinegar/soy mix. I used 1 pound, .50 kilo's of boneless, skinless chicken thighs, chunked, so I adjusted the mix to 3/4 cup of soy sauce and I used 3/4 cup of vinegar (Half white and half wine) Turned out...extraordinary!!!!!!! I will be making this one again...and again..........and again!!!!!!!

Crispy Gingersnaps

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
Thank you so much for this recipe! I tried another Ginger Biscuit/Cookie recipe for my partner and well...it was rather horrid. So after careful perusing of the many recipes, I settled on trying this one. Let me tell you...he has raved about them and said they were better than store bought ones! My adjustments were heaps more of the ginger/spice (B/c he loves that!) and I did not have molasses, so instead I used Golden Syrup. I'm not fond of ginger cookies myself, but these....these were excellent!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2008
Let me tell you, since finding this site it's been a Godsend. Many recipes on here that my passed mother used to make and I could never quite remember all ingredients. Anyway...to this recipe with mixed reviews...I JUST finished taking and cooling the first dozen of these...(Mind you I followed the recipe to a T, only difference, I chilled the dough for about 15 minutes) and OMG they are the greatest thing! I will NEVER buy store bought again! Thank you for the recipe!
