Carrot Soup 'a la Louise'

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
What a great flavor profile. I didn't have all the dried herbs on hand so I used dried Italian herb mix and forgot to add the cornstarch. I guess I had simmered the soup for so long that it didn't need cornstarch at all. I highly recommend using butter instead of margarine because it adds more richness. I pureed the soup like everyone said. So good, and it ended up being my boyfriend's favorite dish for dinner.

Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
This was ok. It was hard to get the bacon crisp without overcooking the asparagus. Use wax paper to prevent the bacon from sticking. I much prefer plain roasted asparagus with salt/pepper/olive oil.

Spicy Sweet Potato and Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2010
I didn't have any cilantro but this will still great. I used coconut cream because it's more flavorful, and trust me, this is quite the satisfying soup. Very hearty!

Pumpkin Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 24, 2010
Moist and somewhat tender. Very much like pumpkin bread but a little lighter. I followed the recipe except omitted the nuts because not too many people are fond of nuts. I baked this in a 6 cavity fluted pan to make 3 mini pumpkins. I had to trim some of the bottoms, but the scraps gave me a chance to taste test. I would double the spices because I like my pumpkin goods to pack a punch.

French Apple Bread Pudding

Reviewed: Nov. 23, 2010
This tastes sooo good, and not eggy at all. I used pears since that's what I had and topped it with a homemade caramel sauce. You can also substitue the water for some cream to make it richer. You can eat this cold or warm, but I prefer warm.

Darra's Famous Tuna Waldorf Salad Sandwich Filling

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2010
Such a refreshing change from traditional tuna salad. I used pears instead of granny smith apples and tossed some dried cranberries into the mix. It's not necessary to use oil packed tuna - you can use water packed tuna to cut down on calories and fat.

Steak Tips with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2010
Fantastic with the few ingredients involved. I don't grill, so I seared large cubes of sirloin and let it simmer in my dutch oven for 4 hours. Very tender meat. I would use less butter next time because 1/4 cup was just too much for my taste. Also I used more broth to compensate for the omission of wine. I subbed rosemary for the thyme.

Panna Cotta

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
I added some fruit puree to the top so that it would offset some of the sweetness. Definitely add vanilla at the very end. I wish I had used the full amount of gelatin called for because mine did not set properly. However, the taste is amazing. I ended up with 4 full/tall shotglasses worth of dessert. Lovely! ******UPDATE: I've made so many variations on this including adding pureed fruits to replace some of the cream like pineapple or mango or strawberry or lychee. You can make coconut panna cotta by replacing half the heavy cream with coconut cream. Panna cotta is a dessert that sounds fancy but is so easy to make. Most commonly, I've used 1.5oz plastic shot glasses for presentation, and 1 recipe makes about 24 of these small shot glasses.

Eggplant and Lamb Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2010
A very simple recipe. I made some changes in the Allrecipes tradition. I used a jar of prepared pasta sauce (instead of paste+water) and added red pepper flakes. I didn't want mushy veggies, so I simmered the lamb in the tomato sauce for 1hr then added my veggies the last 30 minutes. Very tender!

Buttermilk Pancakes II

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2010
Very fluffy, but beware that this makes a lot. Following the recipe exactly, I ended up with 12 6-inch pancakes!!! I used a half cup to make sure the pancakes were fairly even. You can also use a large cookie scoop if you prefer smaller pancakes.

Fabulous Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
Sooooooooo good! I only had canola oil, used walnuts, and subbed lemon juice for the vinegar. I admit I added maybe a 1/2 cup of parmesan, and I regret nothing. I froze the leftovers while topping off the container with a tad of oil to preserver its freshness.

Cucumber Sandwiches II

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
I actually made this for my lunch. I did as others and replaced sour cream with mayonnaise and only used 1/2 oz of dressing mix instead of a whole packet since I didn't want it to be too salty. I like the suggestion of another reviewer to fill a pastry bag with a star tip and top a cucumber slice with the spread.

GA Peach Pound Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
Sooo good! I should've chopped my peaches more thoroughly since the bigger chunks turned to mush within the cake itself. It's a bit too moist especially after a day or two. Should've baked for more than 60 minutes...maybe 65 to 70 minutes. Still tasty though.

Crab and Swiss Quiche

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2010
You don't need a crust for this quiche. It was quite tasty but it definitely needs salt. I think I would add spinach or asparagus next time.

Brown Rice Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2010
I added 1/2 cup wheat germ and some extra sugar. Otherwise, I followed the rest of the recipe exactly. Nice, chewy texture.

Chunky Peach Spread

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
I think this would've been better with fruit pectin. The gelatin made it resemble jello, but it tastes great. Not overly sweet like what you find at grocery stores, and the peach flavor really comes through. I split up my batch in tupperware containers and froze the extra.

Grilled Salmon with Curried Peach Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2010
So simple and very flavorful. I used more curry than called for and used "Chunky Peach Spread" from this website. Very good with a side of rice and some asparagus.

Green Bell Peppers stuffed with Tomato Lentil Couscous

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2010
How pleasant and so healthy. I used ground Italian turkey sausage instead of plain ground beef. This would've been plenty flavorful without the cheese.

Buttermilk Honey Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
I didn't have any problems yielding a fluffy bread. I used bread flour and nonfat buttermilk. I used my breadmaker, but I proofed the yeast in the buttermilk for 15 minutes while I prepped the other ingredients. The little bit of honey offsets any tartness from the buttermilk but this is not a sweet bread. My friends flipped for this bread.

Classic Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
Not overly sweet or dense. Nice flavor and very healthy. I skipped the raisins but otherwise followed the recipe. Will keep this as a quick breakfast snack.
