Korean Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2012
I used sesame oil instead of seed, and reduce the EVOO, just a splash of EVOO. I used RICE VINEGAR instead of what she wrote. I added a slash of simple syrup or honey... So yummy!

Chutney Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2011
I didn't measure anything; I just kept tasting it to adjust to my liking. I used a mango-ginger chutney. I did half mayo half yogurt. I didnt have lime zest but did add lime juice. I also added diced celery, diced mandarian orange, and slivered almonds. Served on puff pastery... yum! Even my 1 year old ate her portion all up!

Asian Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
The sauce is so addicting! I kept finding myself tasting it while I was waiting the hour for the cucumbers to drain. *Update, the next day it became salty and more pickle like. It was still good but different. I think next time I will skip the salting/drain/rinse step, which I did rinse them very well. Why bother? Perhaps I will just blot the sliced cucumbers with paper towels, to avoid the over saltly flavor.

Asian Ginger Dressing

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Yummy! I add a splash of lemon juice and sesame oil, extra ginger and no water. I ran out of rice vinegar one time, so I used RAW apple cider vinegar, still great! I also do roughly equal parts; vinegar, soy sauce, and oil. (I like it strong and bold!) I just keep tasting and adjusting it till I get the flavor I want; it depends on my mood. This is great on a salad topped with mandarin oranges, slivered almonds, shreaded carrots, edamame, etc..

Sauerbraten V

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
this was different! the meat was good. i followed the recipe plus a few changes. i marnidated the meat for 3 days (could do less time, flavor was very strong) and used alba sauerbraten seasoning packet (its from germany and its good!) and chopped onion. after meat was done cooking i strained the herbs out of the pot juice, then made sauce. here is why i rated it low, i should have kept it true and simple but i got carried away. i added gingersnaps and sour cream as some others suggested to the sauce, ewww not good. next time i will just thicken the sauce regular with flour. maybe a tiny sour cream, but i don't think its neccesairy.

Salmon Patties I

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2010
I added a lot of herbs/seasonings to make them tasty. I had to use a lot of bread crumbs to hold pattys together. I made a lemon/dill sour cream sauce to go with these. This recipe os OKAY, but i bit of a greasy pain. I don't think I am going to make these again. I am unimpressed.

Bavarian Style Meatballs

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
my bf loved it, and couldn't stop eating them! we will be making again bc its so easy and delish. we ate them on toasted sourdough rolls :) the recipe does make a lot of extra sauce, so next time i will add more meat balls. also i popped the meatball in the oven for about 20 minutes, while i was opening and mixing everything else in the crockpot. the sauce is sweet, very good how it is, but i can see how a little less sugar would be good too... altogether, a winner bc of it being easy, great, and different!

Barbie's Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
very, very good. so much better than the boring (mayo, mustard, relish) tuna i have made my whole life! i just winged it, and didn't measure anything, just eye balled it. i put everything in there but i didn't have onion flakes so i used onion powder... still tasted great. i put it on whole wheat bread w/ lettuce & tomato. it was easy, fast and yum! :) update: my bf has made me make them 3 days in a row, also he eats 2 or 3 sandwichs each time and can't stop, he loves it.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2010
my bf and i loved it! he said it was one of the best things i have ever made. i cooked the curry powder in oil for about 4 mintues, then added onion and cooked till translucent. i followed the recipe except i only used 2 Tbs sugar, and add a little bit of red pepper flakes. i cooked it in a WOK, it worked great... i had the lid ON, simmered for 1 hour, stirring every 10 min. the sauce thickened up perfect! (i don't understand why others said it was watery) i added peas during last 10 min., they added a sweet element plus a green veggie- yum. i served with medium grain rice. this dish is amazing and easy. i think next time i might add a little potato or any other veggie i feel like just for variety. definitely a keeper.

Slow Cooker Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
i put in the ham hock (we used to use 2, but now we only use one) with the 10 cups chicken broth (you can do half h20 & half ck. broth) in crock pot on high for about an hour. then add about 1 cup each of chopped: onion, carrot, and celery, and one chopped red potato; (we like lots of veggies, so the more the merrier!) Used two big Tbs of chopped garlic, couple pinchs of thyme and marjoram, black pepper, 2 bay leaves, 2 or 3 cloves, and a little splash of worcestershire sauce. cooked on high for almost 5 1/2 to 6 hrs. note: take ham nocks out around 4 to 5 hours and remove meat, discard bones, otherwise small piece of bone may break down into soup.... taste at end to see if it needs a pinch of salt bc sometimes it does & sometimes it doesn't. anyways this was a wonderful and easy meal. i made it perfect the first time, and my son and boyfriend love it too. we ate it all up in less than 24 hours... i am excited to make it again... love it!!!! update: i have made many times, we love it, and it is a keeper!
