Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
good, although I use 1/4c butter and less flour to make the roux. The seafood seasoning is critical, I used Paul Prudhomme's.

Banana Cream Pie I

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2011
Mind Blowing. I made this pie for a finisher for Easter dinner (we make a big deal out of it in my family). I did modify however: cut sugar to 1/2 cup, substitute 3 tbs ground tapioca (this requires priming in the milk at room temperature for 5-10 min) for the flour/cornstarch, and substitute 1/3 cup of the whole milk for cream. I had thought about a rum syrup/glaze but this seemed decadent enough as it was. I used a simple crust of crushed graham crackers (14-16) and 1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter-I added no sugar as this recipe is sweet enough as it is.

Gingered Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2011
Excellent, although I modified for what I had on hand. I used a sweet onion instead of a red one and included 1/2 a serrano pepper and a few dashes of cayanne for some up-front spice in addition to the after-burn of the ginger.

Cardamom Chicken with Salt and Pepper Crust

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2011
A quick and easy marinade. Works well with Chicken tenders (@350 degrees of course). I tend to go easy on the kosher salt, but that has to do with household preference.

Grape Pear Crisp

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2011
Good. To be fair, I used fresh pears and no walnuts. I think next time I'll do the same but with 1 tbs lemon juice and 1/4 tsp cardamon tossed in with the fruit. When using fresh fruit, significantly more time was needed, almost 20 extra min.

Lepinja (Serbian Flatbread)

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2011
Fantastic! I used bread flour and it turned out fantastic (although probably a bit chewier than intended), and added a pinch of savory, as I intended to make a gyro-style burgers.
