Miso Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2011
I used white miso. Also added a generous amount of sliced mushrooms and doubled the green onions. I used firm tofu and prefer it diced very small to avoid a 'texture issue' for my husband. Great recipe!

Curried Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2011
wow. The reviews for this recipe are spot on. It's even better than it sounds. I did a few things differently by roasting the pear and onion as well...but the concept remained the same. I steamed the butternut for about 10 minutes (cut it in half, scoop out seeds and put it cut side down in a baking dish with 1/4 inch of water). Then pour off the water, peel and cut the squash into 1 inch cubes, add the pears (peeled, cored and quartered) and the onion (chopped) to the baking sheet. Toss with a bit of evoo. Bake about 35-40 minutes or until beginning to caramelize. Continue with the recipe as directed. It's amazing.

Asian Coleslaw with Candied Walnuts

Reviewed: Jul. 28, 2011
I'm actually only reviewing this recipe for the candied walnut portion. The salad looks amazing though and I'm sure to try it in the future. But, I was specifically looking for a recipe for candied walnuts and this one was great. The only thing I changed was sprinkling some salt on them as they cooled. I like "salted caramel".

Chicken Satay with Homemade Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 22, 2011
This recipe is great. I was very impressed with how good the chicken was. I was skeptical of the marinade but it was perfect. The sauce needs to be finished "to taste". Mine needed more red pepper (I used a 'saracha' red chili sauce), soy sauce, and lime juice. I also ran mine through a processor to make it smooth. We had it for "picky" company and they like it. Served with steamed broccoli and lightly curried rice.

Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
use 80/20 ground beef so there's enough fat in the burger. It's what makes them good!

Chicken Pot Pie II

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2011
I used fresh chopped carrots and potatoes in place of the frozen veggies. Some frozen peas would be good too though. Then i used dried parsley because it's what I had on hand too. More crust would be nice - so maybe using a bottom one too. I skipped the egg on top too.

Ultimate Steak Sandwich

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
This sandwich is awesome! To ensure the round steak is tender, do the following: pound it out (if you don't have a meat mallet, you can stab it to death with a fork then pound it out with the back of a large heavy metal spoon), slice it as thinly as possible...paper thin!, or consider marinating it in the worchestershire for a while. The mayo sauce is awesome too.

Mom's Coleslaw

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2011
simple. That's how coleslaw should be. The ONLY change I make is adding a little sprinkle of celery salt. this recipe is a keeper. My fav way of eating it is on top of a BBQ beef or pulled pork sandwich!

Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2011
I really enjoyed this recipe. I used a little less than one bunch of cilantro - only because I needed a few tablespoon for another dish. And I used lime juice rather than the wine vinegar and a fair bit less evoo. I'd make this for 4-6 people rather than 8 and use a little less pasta than called for. It was delicious topped with grilled chicken. Be sure to salt to taste after tossing it with the pasta. Salt brings out flavor so if the flavors just aren't singing then add a bit more and taste again. Oh yeah..i used almonds because it's what I had on hand. I enjoyed the mellow sweetness to balance out the lime and cilantro.

Buttered Biscuits

Reviewed: Jan. 8, 2011
These are as good as cracker barrel...which holds the prize in my book. I added 1 TBS and 1/2 tsp to all purpose flour in place of the the self-rising flour. This recipe makes 16-18 biscuits if you roll them by hand into balls about the size of a heaping tablespoon. Though next time I'd make them larger and make only a dozen from the dough because they didn't expand much when cooking so they were fairly small biscuits. Mine needed 10-12 minutes at 450 before they were cooked through and very lightly browned on top. But don't wait until their golden...they are better before they start getting color on top. Also, move them right from the baking sheet into a covered bread basket or wrapped up in a kitchen towl to keep them warm and moist until serving.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2010
My husband is a huge hash browns fan and his reaction to these were "these are the best hash browns I've ever tasted!" I added about 1/2 tsp salt, some fresh ground black pepper and a dash of paprika and garlic powder. It was a crispy on the outside, creamy on the inside, flavor explosion. You can cut back on the oil significantly too - just use enough to generously coat your pan. Use a metal or firm spatula so you don't lose some of the good brown outside. And I'd recommend making individual piles rather than one big one to make flipping easier. Thank for the recipe!!

Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2010
so tender and flavorful. Remember to cut the salt in half if you are using table salt rather than kosher. Definitely use fresh ginger - powdered is not the same flavor. The only substitution I made was by using 6 tsp garam masala in stead of 2 tsp each cumin, cinnamon and coriander. I added an additional dash of cinnamon too because that spice is not as prominent in my particular masala blend. Turned out fabulously - served with guferati indian green beans and curried rice pilaf.

Bran Flax Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2012
new favorite recipe! here are the changes I make. Most of them are just based on preference. I use 3/4 c whole wheat flour and 3/4 c. gluten free flour mix. I use wheat bran rather than oat bran. Soy milk in place of the skim milk and coconut oil rather than vegetable oil. I only use 1 c. of carrot and one apple. Then I add 1 or 2 mashed ripe bananas. Then I prefer to use chopped pecans rather than mixed nuts.

Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2010
Use one up mashed sweet potatoes (canned or fresh would work fine). I used only a dash of nutmeg and added some cinnamon. Vanilla would also be a good addition. Very tasty and fluffy pancakes. Delicious fall treat!

Herb Rubbed Sirloin Tip Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2010
This herb/spice rub was very good. just the right amount of flavor. However, with a thick roast you don't get enough flavor in each bite. I think I would prefer this rub on thinner sirloin steak. For this reason I made the sauce from the recipes on this site called "sirloin with mushroom sauce". Just a sauteed mushrooms in red wine and beef broth reduction - and added a splash of half and half. I was glad to have this sauce accompany our roast but a steak wouldn't need it. Also I cut back on the cayenne for the kid's sade and cut the salt in half (which was plenty!) because I was using table salt rather than kosher salt. Don't be afraid to be more generous with the two herbs either! I think i close to doubled what was called for.

Oat Applesauce Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
This recipe needs some seasoning - I added 3/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1 tsp vanilla. I also made some changes based on what i had on hand. I used 1c. whole milk with 1 T white vinegar in place of the buttermilk and all purpose flour in place of the whole wheat flour if you don't have it. I rarely have those ingredients on hand but it worked wonderfully with my substitutions. The all purpose flour lacks the nutrition of the whole wheat but it also makes them light and fluffy. Because my applesauce had no sugar added I added a little extra brown sugar (1 heaping 1/2 c scoop). The were yummy served warm with butter and some honey. Delightful! *Also they only need 20-25 minutes in the oven. Not 30!
