Easy Fried Eggplant

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
I only give this 3 stars because I feel that you really need to do a couple things differently. 1st you need to sweat the eggplant by sprinkling it with salt and letting it drain in a colander over the sink for at least 20 min. This improves the texture and flavor. 2nd use Italian seasoned Panko instead of plain breadcrumbs. Last, heat olive oil until it shimmers then add eggplant. Done this way, a plain recipe becomes great. My husband normally refused eggplant until I made this. It's a great appetizer served plain or with spaghetti sauce for dipping!

Purple Apple Slaw with Peanut Butter Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
I needed to find a use for red cabbage from my garden and happened upon this recipe. I made it and let the flavors develop overnight. I left out the apples as a personal preference. The flavor was very good! You could cut back on the soy sauce to 2T if you prefer a less salty flavor. Next time I make this I will make sure to cream my sauce very well before adding to the cabbage. Thanks for a great recipe!

Sweet Potato, Carrot, Apple, and Red Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
Very good! I made as written and we all enjoyed it. Next time I will cook this in the crockpot on low for 6-8 hours and add 1 or 2 Tbs Garam Masala for some kick. A keeper!

Catherine's Pickled Blueberries

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
I made this as written only doubled - FANTASTIC! I would give it more stars if I could. For canning, I doubled the recipe and got 14 half pints. The syrup thickened up just fine in the fridge but turned into purely watery liquid after canning - did not thicken at all! Next time I will add a pouch of liquid pectin and make into jam after they stand for the required 8-12 hours. These will make great gifts with some local Goat cheese. The watery canned pints were mixed thoroughly with cream cheese and served that way. People loved it!

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
Very, very good! I omitted the parsley, and tomato soup. Also substituted can of diced chili and tomato for plain diced and used one can of chili seasoned diced tomatoes. Used one can kidney beans. I omitted any sauteing of onions and just threw it all in the Crock-pot for 8 hrs on low. Added frozen corn for the last few minutes. Made my own tortilla strips too. Too hot for the kids but husband LOVED IT!

Home-Style Scalloped Potatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2011
I made this as stated using butter. Hands down the best I have ever eaten! A mandoline slicer and russett potatoes were key.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly but found this to be too sweet and lacking something. Used a jar of yellow curry powder (Morton & Bassett) and cooked the curry as written. Maybe my curry powder was the problem.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
This was good - and hot! I omitted salt as others indicated. I replaced the cumin, cinnamon, cayenne and black pepper in the sauce with 4 tsp Garam Masala. Marinated the chicken all day. I also doubled the sauce ingredients, omitted the jalapeno and added 2 tsp garam masala. I replaced the heavy cream with fat free 1/2 and 1/2 but found I needed to thicken the sauce with a bit of flour. Served over rice with some garlic nan for dipping. Better flavors the next day to boot! Thanks for sharing!

Thai-Style Peanut Sauce with Honey

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
This was very good! I reduced the rice vinegar to 1 Tablespoon as another reviewer recommended (I was using it right away). I served this with skinless chicken breasts, carrots and onions that I had cooked in some olive oil. All served over whole grain spaghetti. The kids gobbled it up! Thanks for the recipe!

Party Punch VI

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
We served this to 12 kids at our Halloween party and it didn't go over well at all. None of the kids went back for seconds. I made this using 100% real fruit juice punch so maybe that was the problem. Won't do this one again - sorry!

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin With Apricot Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2010
This was very good. Followed other suggestions and baked at 300 for 70 minutes then basted on each side for 10 minutes longer each. Served with rice and was excellent. I will do this in the crockpot next time (cook for 6 hours on low in 1/2 inch of water with quartered onions then drain and add glaze for 45 minutes longer). Thanks for sharing!

Sausage Smothered in Red Cabbage

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2010
We really liked this! I made this all in one pan by cooking the onion in olive oil then adding the cabbage and other ingredients in step one. I then added the unpeeled apple for the last 15 minutes. I cut the salt in half as others suggested and used a few splashes of white wine vinegar. Lite Kielbasa also helped cut calories. We'll have this again!

Byrdhouse Marinated Tomatoes and Mushrooms

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
I thought this was good but not great. I swapped vegetable oil with olive oil. The balsamic I used was of very good quality but it was overkill - too much balsamic flavor! I will use less next time and maybe add some garlic for greater depth of fla
