Pesto

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2013
Made 1/2 recipe following proportions. Great flavor. Simple to make. Added a dash of salt as others suggested. Used cilantro instead of parsley. Will make again. Now it has me thinking of growing basil this summer. I didn't last year but it would be handy to have frozen pesto made from the garden's bounty.

Healthier Banana Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2012
Delicious! Added fresh grated nutmeg (love the smell) and cinnamon to taste. Also a cup of toasted walnuts. Will make again. Splendid. Nice chewy texture, not dry and right amount of banana flavor. Also, for more nutrition I substituted one cup of quality whole wheat flour for white. To make mashing bananas easier, I use a potato masher. Also, I use a micro grater and buy whole nutmegs. They are easy to grate and it is such a difference in flavor and nutrition.

Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2012
I think it is tasty with homemade chicken stock. As with any basic soup recipe you are free to add what suits your mood, taste and adjust with what you have on hand. Glad this recipe offers a great way to eat cauliflower. I did use an immersion blender and cooked the chopped cauliflower in the hot soup base.

Glazed Lemon Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2012
Easy bread recipe, especially if you only have lemons and want to make a treat. I did use powdered sugar for the glaze and avoided the issues with the grainy texture other reviewers mentioned.

Speedy Homemade Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
This salsa recipe has become a staple in our house. I tend to use more cilantro than the recipe calls for and depending on what I have on hand I will add different peppers and onions. A great basic recipe that my husband always comments tastes so fresh. I end up making about once a week.

Tom Ka Gai (Coconut Chicken Soup)

Reviewed: Sep. 5, 2012
This was easy to prepare with ingredients on hand. I did use the trick another reviewer mentioned to add some sugar with the fish sauce. I will try to add lemon grass next time but I usually don't have on hand.

Chicken Stock

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2012
This is soooo good. I have used the leftover roasted chicken from the store with great success. It usually has some chicken on the bone and I cover in water. Note, if you do this you will not have 4 pounds of chicken but I have found it still makes a flavorful stock.

Fresh Herbed Halibut

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
Delicious! As with other reviewers, I didn't see the point of slathering cheese, cream etc on a choice cut of fish. The halibut was 2.5 lb and cooked it at 400 for just over twenty minutes.

Hamburger Buns

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2012
simple and easy. I put grilled onions on top. I did use regular yeast but it didn't take long. Will definitely make again. I like the idea of making these soup bowls.

Apple Crisp

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
Made with Fuji apples. It is great with both kinds of nuts and not the oatmeal. It is funny to read comments asking about where is the oatmeal. If you want it, put it in, but why would you?

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2012
Served this salad as a part of a healthy lunch for a friend's birthday. Everyone enjoyed it and it is colorful on the plate. Will make again.

Fried Pork Chop

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2011
The pork chops I had were thicker than 3/4" so once I fried on each side about 5 minutes each, I placed in 400 degree oven for about 15-20 minutes. Delicious!

Delilah's Frosted Cut-Out Sugar Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 31, 2011
The cookies were not too sweet, soft and and crispy on outside. I did adjust the time to bake to my oven. The frosting creates a soft shiny glaze that makes them stackable and is delicious. I used white whole wheat flour and the kids didn't notice. May try adding flavoring like some of the reviewers suggested next time.

Chinese Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
Used this recipe as a base to determine ratio for seasonings. Delicious! My step-daughter, age 14, complimented it several times, and of course, had seconds. Thanks. Added finely chopped red pepper, sliced mushrooms, water chestnuts and sliced carrots.

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
This is a great way to use cauliflower. I didn't have sherry but had seasoned with other spices. I will try it with sherry when I have in my pantry.

Blueberry Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
Made for a tea party. Everyone had a second slice. I did follow the suggestions for a little less sugar and a few more berries.

Spiced Banana Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2011
Delicious! I did change the spices a little since our family likes cinnamon. I also added a cup of real chocolate chips. The oatmeal was a must for the texture. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

JG's Irish Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2011
Made with Sirloin Tip so the kids would eat it. Made a great stew with a combination of favors. Easily enough for two meals for a family. Served with soda bread. Thanks for the recipe. The fire-roasted tomatoes add more than plain tomatoes.

Asparagus Crab Au Gratin

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2011
Made this for dinner tonight. Made in two entree ramekins for my husband and I. Delicious! Used Jarlesburg Swiss and Parm cheeses. Fresh asparagus and lump crab meat. I think this will be a celebration dinner for us.
