Oven-Roasted Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2014
Used only the lemon pepper seasoning, oil & fresh minced garlic. Baked in toaster oven at 375 for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally to blend in flavor & to avoid over cooking on any one part of the asparagus (i.e. getting it burnt on its side). Very tender. Do not over cook or it will shrivel up.

Tri-Tip Rub

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2013
Half the salt & black pepper-used Kosher salt, added thyme, brown sugar, chili powder, cumin as suggested by other reviewers. Mortar the ingredients - just smashed them all together w/ spoon. Did not have parsley - would have added it if I had some. Baked it @ 425 degrees for 25 mins & grill for 5 mins in the toaster oven. Did not burn or char like I wanted. Tasty - still a bit on the salty side - might still need to cut down on the salt. Also next time reduce to 20 mins.

Slow Cooker Spare Ribs

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2013
Used 2.5 lbs of baby back ribs & marinaded in the sauce overnight, using only 1/2 onion. Added tad of sriracha sauce - no Tabasco sauce available. Needed a bit more of a kick, though. Next time, will add some hickory smoke liquid and ginger. Not too tomatoey or too sweet. Drain the sauce & had to skim off the oil/fat. Even tho baby back ribs do not have much fat on them, after cooking for so long, there's bound to be fat. Cooked it on "low" for 5 hrs & meat was falling off the bone when I tried to pick them up with a tong. Next time reduce the amount of cooking time to maybe 4 hrs. Overall, flavor was not bad but could use a tinge more of a kick to it.

Chinese Wintermelon Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2013
Absolutely one of the best homemade Chinese soup around. You will not find this in any restaurant because it takes a lot of TLC to make it take so good & dish out the pits from the dried fruits.

Swiss Chicken Casserole II

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2013
Added zucchini, water chestnuts, 2 tsp curry, dash of lemon juice. Saute 2 big pieces of breast, cubed chicken w/ onion & garlic. Cooked stuffing as directed & set aside. Used 1 can of cream of mushroom & 1 can of milk - could use a little less milk. Mixed soup & milk & then added sauted chicken w/ onions & garlic. then added veggies & shredded cheddar cheese. top w/ the stuffing - hard to make it smooth & even. Baked for 30 minutes - kinda long -will reduce time. Flavor was good but not that spicy. Cooking time could have been a little less so chicken would not be as dry. The casserole came out kind of on the soggy side -but it's better than having it dry. Maybe use less milk next time.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2012
A very hearty and tasty soup. Used about 2 3/4 cup of lentils, soaked & drained. Double the spices as other suggested[dried basil, oregano, bay leaves, thyme,].Used kosher salt -gave it a better flavor. Only used 1 can of crushed/diced tomatoes as I am not that fond of tomatoes. Boiled 5 chicken breast bones for an hour to use a broth. Added cumin & red pepper flakes & used balsamic vinegar. I had also used the chicken meat off of the bones [just season it with soy sauce, add to individual bowls before scooping soup into it]. Left out the spinach because I did not have any but added 2 diced potatoes during the last 15 minutes of cooking. Also had to had another cup of water the last 1/2 hour - soup was getting too thick. Cooking time approximately a little under 1 1/2 hr.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
Wonderful flavor & very easy. Added minced ginger & garlic. Marinaded for 3 hrs or & seared it in non-stick pan; 5 minutes with skin side up; then flip over & sear for 3 minutes. DO NOT overcook. Heat the remaining marinade in saucepan to use as dipping sauce. Absolutely delicious! Can be used for other meats.

Chinese White Cut Poached Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2012
Cooking times depends on the size of the chicken. Tried it with just chicken thighs and 20 minutes was more than enough. Tried it with a 5-6 lb whole chicken ; need to do breast side up for 30 mins and then flip over for another 55 mins. Do not overcook or meat will be rough and dry. Put ginger into the dipping sauce will add a better flavor to it.

Sesame Seared Tuna

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2012
Definitely 30 seconds or less for each side is more than enough time to sear the steak. The grated ginger adds a kick to the taste. No wasabi was available so that was left out.

Korean BBQ Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2012
Followed suggestions as other reviewers by cutting down the sugar by 1/3, used low sodium soy sauce & also cut down to 2/3 C. Used fresh minced onions, minced garlic & ginger as well. Fresh ingredients really do make a difference. Heated some reserved sauce for dipping. The ingredients used here are generally in most Asian recipes - don't really see how this is "Korean" except maybe it has the chili paste. Also, the description says "four tablespoons [of chili paste] is usually as much as anyone can take" but the ingredients listed calls for 4 teaspoons hot chili paste. There must be a typo somewhere - 4 TBS is much more than 4 tsp. Definitely worth keeping for future use.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
Very tasty flavor. Took over reviewers suggestions. Doubled the amount of meat. Seared meat in marinate of soy sauce, garlic powder, wine, red pepper flakes before place it into crock pot. After 4 1/2 hrs of cooking, meat was already very tender. Then added the sour cream about 12 oz. Cooked for another 45 mins. Sauce still runny so I added a mixture of wine & cornstarch to thicken it a little. Do not like very thick gravy-like sauce. Omitted chive,beef bouillon and parsley.

Russian Tea Balls

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2010
Big hit at Christmas holidays. Perfect for those potluck gatherings. Easy to make & yields about 3-4 dozen. Use a sifter/strainer to sprinkle powdered sugar on top.

Boston Baked Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2010
Great flavor. Soaked beans for 7-8 hrs, bring to boil for 2-3 minutes, turn heat off & let it sit for 1 hr. Drain water & rinse beans. Put fresh water in pot & soak overnight. Next morning, drain bean into crock pot, reserving water. Add back reserved water after layering the beans, bacon & onions to barely cover beans. Took advice of reviews by * frying bacon [cut into pieces 1st], * decreased the sugar, adding bell pepper[red, yellow] and jalapeno [seeded, diced], liquid smoke. * Took crock pot cover off the last 1 1/2 hr(after cooking about 7 hrs on low before removing lid) so sauce would thicken * Need to check liquid & stir periodically so that there's enough liquid. * Beans sitting there will absorb a lot of the liquid so do not let it dry out too much. * Yields a lot of beans & flatulence

Oven Kalua Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2010
Only use half the salt [sea salt, Hawaiian salt, or red clay can be purchased at 99 Ranch Market if there's one in your area], cooked in the oven for about 3 hrs & it was ready. Also tried it in crock pot for 6-7 hours. Crock pot retains more of the juice and did not heat up the house. Added the ginger, garlic and onions as some reviewers suggested - gave it more flavor. Reducing the salt made it much easier to eat and you did not have to keep drinking water. Would definitely make this again - so easy - Prefer using the crock pot.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2010
Worth keeping & making again. Did not use as much soy sauce as called for. The spicy sriracha sauce added a nice touch to the flavor. Also added onions, bell peppers [slivered], and celery. Next time {& if I have them] I will add cashew or peanuts to really make it like a it is an Asian dish.

Creole Seasoning Blend

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2009
Great flavor. Used it for our deep-fried turkey and it gave the turkey a wonderful taste and aroma. Cut the recipe in half & had more than enough to put all over the almost 12 lb. turkey & inside the cavity. Marinated it overnight & there seemed to be a lot of liquid. Had to drain the turkey & pour liquefied seasoning into another bowl before putting the turkey in the deep fryer. Omitted the onion powder since I had none. Willing to try this blend on other types of meat.
