Citrus Salmon in Parchment

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2012
My husband was so impressed, and I'm an acclaimed good cook in his mind! He said it's better than a restaurant. I didn't have lemons, limes, or oranges....all I had was lemon and lime juices and tangerines. I sliced the tangerines and sprinkled the other citrus juices when I drizzled the oil and sprinkled with garlic salt and black pepper b/c I was out of lemon pepper. Fresh dill was great! I'm glad I followed 1 reviewer's advice and didn't stress about the size and shape of the parchment paper, just made little packages. Cook time is perfect! Thanks for a great recipe!

Chinese Chicken Salad III

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2012
This was okay, but dressing was way too thick and strong.

Soft Mahi Mahi Tacos with Ginger-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2012
This is sooo good! The only thing I changed was omitting the jalapeno for the kiddos and substituting canned pineapple. It has a bold, unique flavor. If you've never had fish tacos or think they sound gross, this is a great recipe to start with. These will be a regular when I find Mahi on sale.

Orange Party Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2012
These are pretty good. My 3 year-old wanted to make orange cupcakes, so we did not use the tube pan. If making cupcakes or another non-inverted cake, let the cake cool a little before pouring glaze on top. As another reviewer suggested I changed the water to OJ and added a 1/4 tsp orange extract. I might even increase it to 1/2 tsp or more next time and will omit the coconut. It is not very good in this recipe to me, but if you are looking to use up coconut I would increase it. As it is, the coconut is kind of random and sparse.

Creole Butter Beans

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2011
After living in New Orleans 3 years, I was disappointed. I might give it another try in the slow cooker for several hours to blend the flavors and make it more creamy, less watery, and the vegetables more tender.

Squash Stuffed with Ricotta Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2011
Made as directed and this was a bit on the bland side. Without the marinara I don't think it would be nearly as good, but if tweaked this could be a great recipe.

San Francisco Pitas

Reviewed: Jun. 30, 2011
Do not omit the Soy Nuts....they add so much. If you don't have any, maybe substitute peanuts. I didn't have sprouts and I added grilled chicken and fresh chives. I wrapped it in a tortilla and opted for the Ranch dressing. I can't give it 5 stars because I didn't make it exactly as it appears, but it was really good.

German Apple Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2011
This is a great recipe as-is. I had all the ingredients to make a chocolate cake for my 2-year-old's b-day when out of the blue he asked for "papple cake". I had no idea how I would decorate an apple cake, so thanks Edie for a great recipe that's easy to decorate by adding a little more confectioner's sugar to thicken the icing. Everyone at the party just loved it.

Butternut Squash Supreme

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2010
This turned out good (others at the table called it delish), but I made some changes. First, I had a huge butternut squash, so I baked it in a roasting pan for about an hour on 350. I just pierced it with a knife about 6 times. This saved me some trouble with peeling, etc. Then, I cut it into fairly large chunks (about 1 in. squares) instead of mashing it, because I'm a texture person. Since the squash was so large, I used 4 eggs, 2 cups cheddar, 1 lg. onion, and 2 sleeves of Ritz crackers. I seasoned it with a lot of pepper and garlic salt. I sauteed the onion in butter before adding to the mixture, as suggested by others and I used EVAPORATED MILK INSTEAD OF MILK. I think that made a big difference. I mixed one sleeve of Ritz crackers into the casserole and put the other sleeve on top. I put it into a 9x13 casserole and it packed it out. I would only change one thing next time: I will melt about 1/4 a stick of butter and combine with a sleeve or Ritz and spread them on top, because just doting it with butter left white spots on top and it didn't get crispy on top like I would have liked. It was almost as good as a yellow squash casserole. Thanks Marianna

Shredded Vegetable Slaw

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2010
This halves well and was great alongside Asian food. I used 1 teaspoon of ginger instead of chopped since that's what I had, also added about 1/2 tsp of minced garlic and some salt. I used broccoli slaw because I had some in the fridge, and I don't recommend that, but I don't think broccoli slaw would be good with anything. This dressing was good, though, and I will probably try it again with cabbage as the recipe suggests.
