Turkey and Yam Spicy Tacos

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
This is a great recipe and has been in my rotation since I found it over a year ago. It's fairly easy, the results are delicious, and it can be adapted to suit the spice level you are looking for by either including more or less jalapenos and starting with a spicier or milder salsa. The leftovers reheat well, too. But perhaps the best surprise of all was how awesome this mixture tastes as a tamale filling. It makes a lot and there are just two people in my home, but the leftovers never go to waste. You can't go wrong!

Blueberry Lemon Loaf

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2012
After reading the reviews, I decided to make this without the glaze. Some people say the glaze is what makes the loaf so good, but I was concerned that it would get soggy since there were only two of us eating it and it needed to last awhile. Even without the glaze, it was quite good. I did add extra lemon juice, just tasting a small amount of the batter and adding more lemon juice until I could really taste a strong lemon flavor. If you opt to make it without the glaze, consider adding a little more sugar if you want a really sweet loaf. Without the glaze, it's good but not particularly sweet.

Chicken Vindaloo

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2012
This is fairly easy to make and a totally decent, tasty dish. That said, it just doesn't seem anywhere near spicy enough to qualify as a vindaloo.

Cardamom Granola Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2012
These were really good, and I love the cardamon flavor. I took the advice of several other reviewers and used dried cranberries instead of raisins, added just a little less brown sugar, and made sure to press the mixture together really well and let them cool completely before cutting. I also mixed in a little ground flax seed for added fiber. They held together ok, but the end pieces were pretty crumbly. I saved the pieces that crumbled as I was cutting them and used them as a topper for vanilla yogurt--delicious!

Chicken and Apple Curry

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2011
Even with doubling the amount of curry powder, using coconut milk instead of regular milk, and adding some garam masala, it just wasn't flavorful enough. It's not a bad dish at all, but it needs a little something and I haven't quite figured out what that is yet. My family wasn't really looking for the curry to be hot, just to have a deeper flavor and a stronger spice combination.

Homemade Egg Noodles

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
This is a very easy recipe, but I am not an experienced noodle-maker and managed to mess it up. Does anyone have advice as to how you know when your noodles are dry enough? A word of caution to fellow inexperienced noodle-makers who want to try this recipe: really think about how thick or thin you want your noodles to be. After reading a note warning not to make the noodles too thin, I went too far in the other direction and made really fat ones that were tasty, but enormous when cooked and not very pliable. All in all, still a great recipe that will get easier with practice.

Pumpkin Spiced Latte

Reviewed: Sep. 20, 2011
This was a decent copy of a Starbucks pumpkin spice latte (and so much cheaper, too!). I didn't think the flavor was quite strong enough. If you really want to taste the coffee AND the spices, I'd recommend adding more or cutting back on the milk just a little. It was an easy recipe I would definitely make again. I used a pumpkin pie spice recipe from this site to mix the spices myself, making the whole thing really economical.

Carol's Arroz Con Pollo

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
This was an easy, healthy, and tasty dish. The only change I made was that I put in a dash of cumin instead of saffron since saffron is so expensive and I didn't have it on hand. The texture of the rice was great and the cooking time was accurate. I'd say the primary flavor was from the tomatoes, so if you like a spicy dish or if you are not a big fan of tomatoes, you might want to tweak this. My husband suggested that next time we make this, we might add some roasted pasilla peppers to get a little deeper flavor and some heat, since this dish is not hot at all. Overall, good flavor and a nice, homey meal.

Mushroom Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Great recipe for an easy, flavorful, and relatively inexpensive dish. Like several other cooks, I used sauteed garlic instead of garlic salt. This is a great weeknight dinner and I will definitely be making it again.

Spicy Pumpkin Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2011
I was disappointed with this recipe. I didn't taste the pumpkin at all, and the flavor was bland. I used the amount of spice indicated in the recipe (and yes, my spices are fresh and have not been sitting around forever), but I thought it just tasted like tomatoes and that was it. It was edible, but not enjoyable.

Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2011
Delicious! Just like the ones I used to buy at a gourmet coffee shop in San Diego. Per some of the other reviews, I added more milk--about 1 cup total. I like the crunchy goodness of the sugar baked on top, but found that I didn't need nearly as much as the recipe called for. The Results were satisfying with just half the amount of sugar sprinkled on top (though I did not cut the amount of sugar in the actual batter). I like the mini chips and would probably not make these with full-size ones since the chocolate seems well dispersed with the mini chips. Mine were done in exactly 20 minutes. The recipe was easy to follow, used ingredients most cooks would already have on hand, and the results were delicious. This is a keeper!

Irish Chicken and Dumplings

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2011
Completely delicious! I had tried several chicken and dumplings recipes previously, and was never pleased with the results. This one had everything I was looking for--delicious, comforting flavor, creamy broth.sauce, doughy biscuits, and tender veggies. It takes awhile to make but is very easy and appropriate for both experienced and inexperienced cooks. I bought Jiffy Baking Mix for the dumplings and was very happy with the way they turned out--fluffy, soft, and floury. I garnished with some high-quality dried parsley, and it added just a bit more to the flavor and made this dish look even prettier. This one is a keeper.
