Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 15, 2014
I've made this recipe, and also had some problems, but it's not with the recipe, it was with the rice. I'm on a fixed income so have been buying my rice from one of those discount, bag your own groceries, stores. I've discovered that the rice they sell is more adapted to risotto. It doesn't say it's Arborio, but that's how it needs to be cooked. It took me a few times to realize what I was dealing with. I followed this recipe exactly as written, but only had 1 can of coconut milk, so at the end of the stated cooking time had to add more water, and have had to repeat that, 3 times so far. I will not eat either my rice or pasta 'al dente', I like it 'cooked'. Needless to say, there was no coconut flavor left at all. This scenario may be the reason other people have had problems. Sooo, to 'chef Joy' there may be extenuating circumstances as to why some people have had problems. Needless to say, I'll go back to buying 'regular long grain rice' at my more expensive supermarket, but will definitely make this again.

Spanish Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2011
Made this pretty much as written. The only changes I made were to use a small can of chopped jalapeno peppers instead of chopping a green bell pepper, and used salsa instead of picante sauce, (don't really see the difference between the two) and Monterey Jack cheese, instead of cheddar, ( I just can't reconcile cheddar cheese belonging on a Mexican dish). Everything else was made as written. This is very good, but next time I will definately leave out the cinnamon, I just didn't like the subtle cinnamon taste, hence the 4 star rating.

Chicken Wing Dip

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
This recipe is delicious, and can easily be "heat" adjusted. If you want to save a step, You can use the same amount of Velveeta cheese,in lieu of the cream cheese, and shredded cheddar. I have done this, and it's still delicious.

Janet's Rich Banana Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
This banana bread is sooooo good. The only thing I did differently, was to mash my bananas instead of slicing them. Otherwise, followed the recipe as written. FYI: after I greased my Pyrex loaf dish, I dusted it with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar,then poured the batter in. It cooked perfectly in 60 min. Yummmmy

Vinegar Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2010
I gave these only 4 stars, because, even though they tasted good, I wasn't crazy about the texture. I've never had Pecan Sandies, but that is how I would describe the texture of these cookies, um, well, sandy. Even though they were very easy to make, I wouldn't make them again unless I were desperate for a sweet cookie and out of eggs. Also, based on other reviews,I added a tsp of vanilla extract to the mix, and chocolate chips instead of the nuts,(personal preference).

Polish Reuben Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
I gave this recipe 4 stars, because it is very good, but to say it tastes like a reuben, is in my, and my 40 yr. old daughters opinion, a real stretch. She can be a food critic to reckon with, and believes she's a Reuben sandwich aficianado, however, both she and I did like this casserole. The only change I made was to add a couple of Tblsp of Thousand Island drsng. to the soup mix.

Chicken Noodle Casserole I

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2010
I have to agree with some of the other reviewers,this recipe would have been very bland if I hadn't made several additions: about 6oz grated cheddar cheese,broccoli florets and ample salt and pepper that I mixed in the soups and sour cream mixture,which I added about 1/2 soup can of water to get the consistancy that I wanted. Also, I cant believe that the 6 oz's of egg noodles is not a typo. I added about 20 oz or so of dry egg noodles, (before boiling) and the casserole still came out very creamy after baking. I also added grated parmesan cheese to the cracker crumbs for the topping. After all that, the finished casserole was delicious. This is a good base recipe for personal additions,which is why I gave it only 4 stars.

Chicago Hot Relish

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I hope people realize that the 20 red,ripe tomatoes are medium to large in size, and not cherry or grape tomatoes. Also the original recipe called for 6 "stalks" of celery, but evidentally computers don't recognize "stalk" so I had to estimate cups. Hope you enjoy this relish as much as I do.
