Butternut Squash Bisque

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
The carrots add a great dimension of flavor to the butternut squash. I barely used any cream, and it would taste great without it too. I added a dash of red pepper flakes and rosemary.

Chinese Tea Leaf Eggs

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2011
These turned out lovely. When I first peeled them, the crackles were a very light color, but I noticed that after a couple of hours, the color deepened. I guess oxidation lent itself to some beautiful results! It's not very flavorful, but my family enjoyed it nonetheless.

No Bake Cheesecake I

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
I made this plain, and it was perfect for an easy, quick dessert. Since then, I've made a tiramisu version (replace half of cream cheese with mascarpone, add kahlua, dissolve instant coffee with cream, top with whipped cream and cocoa) and an oreo version (mix in chopped oreos with chocolate cookie crust). Keep in mind this firms up once refrigerated, so don't let the liquidy mixture take you off guard...it WILL firm up!

Tofu Creamed Spinach

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2011
Very good. I used asiago cheese, and I really appreciate the silky texture from the tofu. Soooooo healthy! I used frozen spinach because that's what I had on hand, and I blended the garlic along with the tofu, milk, and cheese. This took no time to finish!

Eat Michigan Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
I only made the dressing, but it was fabulous! I didn't measure it, but I did have to add more mayonaise to make it creamier.

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.
