Mandarin Orange Cake I

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2015
Great recipe, though orange flavor could be stronger. Easy! Cake came out very moist.

General Tao Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 30, 2012
Followed the recipe pretty much as is, though I reduced the vegetable oil by about 25% and sugar by about 50% to try to make it a bit healthier. Tasted very good, although it probably won't become one of my go-to recipes because of the number of steps involved.

Asparagus Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2012
Delicious and easy recipe! However, I ended up having to add four more eggs and about 1/2 c. more half and half to be able to fill up my pie crusts, even after I already put in a lot of filling of ham, spinach, onion, and cheese!

Grandma's Egg Custard Pie

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2012
Easy and tasty! My friends loved it. Instead of 2.5 cups milk, I used 1.5 cups of fat-free milk and 1 cup of half-and-half. I did not scald it. I also threw into the batter the extra egg yolk that was separated from the egg white used for brushing the crust. This one is a keeper!

Denise's Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
I agree with all the commenters who recommended adding peanut butter! That was the magic touch to bump this dish to five stars!

Spanakopita (Greek Spinach Pie)

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2011
Delicious! Takes a little time and effort because of all the phyllo layers. I added a middle layer of phyllo and split the spinach mixture into two layers. I used a 9 x 13 inch pan.

Green Tea Layer Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2011
Delicious! Instead of 1 cup of vegetable oil, I used 1/2 cup of vegetable oil plus 1 cup of sweetened applesauce. Instead of 1 1/4 cups of white sugar, I used 3/4 cup of white sugar. I agree that the frosting isn't enough to cover all the cake if you make cupcakes, but I didn't mind having some cupcakes left unfrosted (the cake tastes great by iteself).

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
Easy and delicious! I found that the sauce was too soupy though. Next time I will use less broth.

Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
Easy and delicious! The peanut butter flavor is not that strong; could add more if you particularly like the flavor.

Sweet 'n' Hot Glazed Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2011
Delicious and easy! I used 1/2 cup of apricot preserves instead of nectar, and it tasted great. However, I found that I had a bit too much sauce than needed.

Grilled Mahi Mahi with Roasted Pepper Sauce and Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2011
This recipe takes some time to make, but it is delicious. We made it with red snapper fish. Either the red pepper sauce or the cilantro pesto sauce alone would be great with fish, but their combination is especially tasty.

Zucchini Patties

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
I tried squeezing some of the water out of the shredded zucchini but didn't get much out that way. I went ahead with the recipe and found that the patties would not stick together. Next time I will let the zucchini sit longer, and perhaps squeeze them in a cloth, to try to get more water out. But even though the patties did not stick together, they were still delicious!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
Easy and delicious. I have used only bell peppers and mushrooms and no fresh herbs, and it was delicious!

Southwest Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
Easy and tastes pretty good! I thought it was a bit too soupy with the canned diced tomatoes. May try using fresh diced tomatoes in the future.
