President Ford's Braised Eye Round Steak

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
This was absolutely delicious!!! I cooked it in my french oven since I only made 3 steaks for myself and my husband. I didn't have beef consomme or wine so I used about 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar and 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce with about 3/4 cup of water. I let it cook for about an hour and then chopped up up some potatoes and dumped in baby carrots and added enough water to cover everything... I added about 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar and 2 TB of Worcestershire sauce more, also. My husband raved about it!

Thai Sweet Sticky Rice With Mango (Khao Neeo Mamuang)

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2011
I guess I just don't like this kind of thai sweet sticky rice b/c I couldn't eat this. I ate one or two bites - I think it's just the sweetness of the rice that I didn't like - the smell and taste reminded me of baby formula. I think this was a simple matter of taste though, not necessarily that the recipe was bad... Still decided to review as it actually tasted to me though.

Cinnamon and Lime Chicken Fajitas

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
Absolute delicious! I made this tonight for my boyfriend and myself and we are in LOVE! Neither of us could stop going on about how great it was. I made some revisions: -sprinkled the potatoes with some cayenne before baking -Cooked the chicken and potatoes at the same time @ 400 but took the chicken out at 20 mins and the potatoes out at 30. - -Added almost a full bunch of chopped cilantro right before removing the chicken/jalapeno/onion mixture from pan -Used the juice of 2 limes -Used jarred jalapenos, about 2 TB Absolutely delicious!

Holiday Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2010
Delicious! I think it took all of 5minutes before it was all gone off the plate once I put it out! I did make two changes as I didn't have ginger or cloves. I used about 5 shakes of nutmeg & about 6 shakes of pumpkin pie spice instead. My mom made it the following day for a dinner and I'm saving it for next year!

Whipped Cream

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
I usually just throw in a palmful or so of white sugar rather than messing with the powdered and it works fine. Added some cinnamon to the mix for our pumpkin pie topping.

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
used 2 heads of roasted garlic, roasted garlic at 400 degrees for 35-45mins. // I prefer smashed potatoes so I blended the roasted garlic with a little bit of the cooked potatoes with a small food processor then added the mix into the rest of the smashed potatoes. // Added 2-3 TB sour cream, as well.

Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
This was delicious... did have to make a tweak b/c of it being damp still but not sure what normal is for this dish. I served it with Easy Satay Chicken. I made this rice in my rice maker so I heated up the water and sugar in the microwave to get it the sugar to melt before putting it in the rice maker. I then mixed everything in the rice maker and let it cook - when I opened it up there was still a lot of coconut milk mixture on the top and when I mixed it in, it was a little damper than I expected. Maybe it's because I made it in the rice maker and maybe it was supposed to be that way... I'm not sure. However, I cooked a 1/2 cup more rice like normal (in water) and added it to the mix. This worked fine and it tasted great. Next time I'll try it normal again on the stove and see what happens.

Easy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Mar. 27, 2012
This was a great dish! The flavor was delicious - just enough flavor by itself but great with the peanut sauce, too. Loved how easy it was to make such delicious peanut sauce-- I added the juice of 2.5 limes to the sauce. However, I feel like the serving size is off - I used 1.5 lbs of chicken (3 chicken breasts) and it served 3 people with only a tad bit of chicken left over. (I made 1.5x the recipe for the marinade for the 1.5lbs of chicken.) I served the chicken with about 3/4-1 cup of the Asian Coconut Rice posted by SILVREZS. The recipe for the peanut dipping sauce made PLENTY and there is no need to double - after 3 of us had eaten I had about 2 cups of the sauce left. I plan to use it for dressing for a thai salad along with some cilantro-lime dressing.

Cream Puffs

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
Yum! These were so pretty and easy. I was expecting it to be a difficult dessert before reading through the directions but it was super easy. So yummy, too! (I didn't have a full 2 cups of heavy cream so I mixed 1/3 c melted butter, 1 TB flour and 1 cup 1% milk to make the additional heavy cream.) Other than my heavy cream partial substitute, I didn't change a thing. Didn't even take any reviewers advice just followed the recipe exactly and they turned out perfectly. Made the filling in the morning and the cream puffs about 30 minutes before company was set to come. Perfectly easy, beautiful presentation and tasty dessert.

Oven-Friend Chicken w/ Crunchy Broccoli Slaw

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
Delicious all around. I added a little extra black pepper upon serving to the broccoli slaw but everything else was done exactly as the recipe states. Loved the flavor of the breaded chicken.

Homestyle Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
*cut the recipe down for a smaller family and changed the servings to 5* the spices make this chili taste the way it does and I followed them exactly. DELICIOUS. perfect straight forward chili recipe. What I love most is that you just throw it all in the pot, stir and cook. Only need to brown the meat separately and you can do that while you're prepping everything else. I added some frozen corn to mine, omitted the bell pepper b/c I didn't have any on hand, added a full medium sized onion, used 2 14-oz cans tomato sauce & 1 lg can crushed tomatoes instead of the tomato juice. Threw maybe a cup of water to add some liquid. Used a large can of red kidney beans. I changed things but nothing about the spices and that's what I think makes it what it is.

Sweet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2013
delicious! I did add a 1/2 cup sugar rather than 1/4 to make it a little sweeter but I have no doubt it would have been just as good with the 1/4 cup. Also subbed some greek yogurt for some of the sour cream simply b/c I didn't have enough sour cream.

Easy Indian Butter Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2012
oh. my. goodness. SO GOOD! Only thing I did differently was to coat the cubed chicken in a little olive oil and curry (enough spice to cover them pretty well) and baked it. Added chicken to simmering sauce after it was baked through and then let it simmer until it was time to eat... sometimes a hour, sometimes just 15 minutes. Always delicious! And I used half cream and half evaporated milk.

Honey-Glazed Chicken w/ Peppers and Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2011
I thought this was excellent! I had a moment of dumbness and rubbed the cheese & cilantro mixture under the skin of the back side of the chicken rather than the breast side. Duh. The mixture of the cheese and cilantro was delicious though and the chicken turned out super moist.

Chicken Meatballs w/ Sweet Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2011
Made these for a life group meeting at my home and they were DELICIOUS! I loved the peanut sauce and the meatballs had wonderful flavor. I only have a tiny grater so I ended up grating about a TB of onion, gave up, and chopped the onion finely instead. Passed along the recipe to a friend at life group. Peanut sauce is definitely a sweet mixture so omit some sugar if you don't want it as sweet - I loved it just as it was, personally. Will be making again very soon!
