Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2009
This is one of those dishes that looks really fancy and tastes delicious but is very easy to prepare -- my kind of recipe! Followed other reviewers suggestions to increase the pecans in the pecan/breadcrumb mixture and also refrigerated the honey-butter-mustard mix for a little bit. Will make this dish again.

Sweet Potato Casserole II

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2008
I used six sweet potatoes and butter instead of low-fat margarine (it's Thanksgiving, live a little!). I think the receipe as written calls for way too much sugar -- I used half the amount called for and probably would reduce it more next time as sweet potatoes are already, well, sweet. Also if you used a whole bag of mini-marshmallows you'd end up with a 1:1 ratio of sweet potato to marshmallow. I prefer a single layer of marshmallows on top. The amount of oj was good to my taste.

Quick Poached Salmon with Dill Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2008
You don't often get great-tasting, healthy and easy all in one recipe, but this delivers all three. Poaching is such an easy way to cook fish, I don't know why I don't do it more often. I only had a little leftover wine, so I put it a lot of water and added a chicken bouillon cube -- also put some leftover dill sprigs in the water, don't know if that had any effect but the salmon had a great flavour. I skipped the shallots and forgot the lemon juice, and didn't miss either one. I heated up the sauce in the microwave before serving; it was delicious. This is definitely one I'll make again.

Ground Nut Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2008
This is an awesome recipe that can be easily adapted to whatever you have on hand or feel like eating. I added sweet potatoes (sliced about 1/4-inch-thick), okra and eggplant, all of which I sauteed and added to the stew before cooking the chicken. My husband and I both love it and it's going into our regular rotation; haven't tried it out on kids but I think if they like peanut butter it's worth a shot!

Yakisoba Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2007
This is a great base recipe that can be filled out with whatever you're in the mood for or whatever's in your pantry. I was timid with the chili sauce and will try adding more next time. Great flavour and quite easy. Husband loved it. I don't think the original author intended it to be a faithful, authentic representation of Japanese cuisine -- just a yummy dinner inspired by yakisoba, which it certainly is. Will make it again.

Pam's African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2007
I was in the mood for something hearty but with a different flavour, and this really hit the spot. I added more red pepper and chili powder to spice it up a bit. It tasted even better the second day ... and the third day. (I doubled the recipe.) I served it over brown rice, egg noodles and sweet potatoes -- all good, but I think I liked it over sweet potatoes best. If you're a peanut butter fan, give it a try!

Beet Salad with Goat Cheese

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
This salad was excellent. I made it for Valentine's Day (cut the beets into heart shapes), and made it again with chicken for a main dish salad. Delish both times! I had no idea making candied walnuts was so easy, I'm glad I tried it. The dressing was easy and good also. The goat cheese is missing from the ingredients list but it's definitely worth including! Will make again.

African Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2006
I used sweet potato instead of potato, chicken broth instead of water, and black beans instead of chickpeas. This is a great pantry recipe. I thought it was good but not great -- a nice combo of flavors and change of pace but a bit too heavy for me. My husband LOVED it, though. I'll probably make it again but not often. Very stick-to-your-ribs and flavorful. The cooking times were all right on target for me.

Adrienne's Tom Ka Gai

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2005
This took me a lot of work (more like two hours than one with all the chopping, although I may just be slow in the kitchen). But in the end it was worth it. Used chicken broth instead of water & reduced the red pepper a bit, otherwise followed recipe as written. The soup had GREAT texture and flavor. It was a bit spicy for me but my husband loved it. If you use whole lemongrass, chop it very large (like 3-inch pieces) so it's more easily picked out of the finished soup.

Fresh Tomato Shrimp Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2005
This turned out very nicely. All my kitchen stuff is in storage (just moved) so I don't have a Cuisinart, but I chopped up everything and it tasted great. Next time I might add some red pepper flakes to spice things up. Good basic, light-but-tasty recipe.

This was fantastic and so easy. I used gala apples. Made it with waffles for Christmas breakfast and it was a big hit!!

Slow Cooker Chicken Parisienne

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2004
This was my first attempt at using the slow cooker, and it was a smashing success! Following advice of other reviewers, I added 1 chopped onion, some garlic cloves and a bay leaf. Also I used fresh mushrooms. And finished it on high with the cover off. I had to work late so it ended up being on low for about 12 hours and the consistency and flavor were great. I can see using this as my slow-cooker base recipe, varying the flavors and ingredients a little bit each time.

Chicken-and-Pasta Bake with Basil

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2003
This is excellent comfort food. Husband loved it & so did I. Following others' suggestions, I added about 3/4 c. milk to the recipe and the consistency was perfect. The next time I make it I would actually add _more_ basil and garlic, but judging from the other reviews I guess I like basil and garlic more than the average person. I also used asparagus instead of broccoli.

Pan-Seared Tuna with Olive-Wine Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2003
This dish was good, but if I make it again I'll probably play around with the ingredients. The olives and the lemon juice made it quite tart -- I might halve the lemon juice and maybe try adding some sugar. The "pan-seared" made me think it would be rare inside, but if you cook according to directions it's done or a little overdone throughout. I probably will try making it again, because I did like the olive-wine sauce. With preparation time (and I'm a pretty slow preparer), it took a little over an hour to make.

Classy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2003
Great tasting recipe and very easy to make. The combo of the sun-dried tomatoes, dijon, sour cream and dill is very nice. Add whatever veggies you have on hand to vary it. My only complaint is I have no idea what "springy" chicken is, but it turned out fine anyway!

Apricot Chicken I

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2001
Wow. I was skeptical when I saw the ingredients, but this is a wonderful chicken dish! I used reduced-fat dressing and it still tasted great. Good low-fat recipe. I recommend spooning on the sauce sparingly -- I ended up with a lot of it and it has a very strong flavor. Good, but strong. Great weekday recipe -- can't beat it for quickness. My husband loved it.

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2001
This was excellent. My husband, a big tuna noodle casserole fan, gave it enthusiastic thumbs up. I added fresh thyme and used grated cheddar instead of American slices; I also used reduced fat soups and it still tasted great.
