Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2009
I've been trying different versions of chicken curry dishes and so far this is the family favorite. It's got just the right amount of heat and good flavor. Tastes even better the next day! I used hot curry powder, left out the chopped tomatoes (didn't have any), and cut the sugar from 3 to 2 tbls. Thanks!

Thai Curry Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2009
Really flavorful, loved it! Omitted the lemongrass (hard to find here) and used frozen cooked shrimp, thawed and added during the last few minutes of cooking. Also used regular, not low-fat, coconut milk. I prepare rice noodles this way... Soak noodles in cold water for about 30 minutes to soften, drain and add to boiling water for 1-2 minutes until tender, drain. Other methods seem to make mushy noodles.

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Ginger and Honey

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2009
Excellent flavor. Used olive oil instead of walnut oil. Leftovers were even better the next day. We'll be seeing this one on our Thanksgiving table from now on!

Slow Cooker Stuffing

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2008
I was worried that this might be mushy, but it turned out great. Even had a little bit of crust around the edges which is how we like it. My mother-in-law was impressed and we'll both be using this recipe from now on.

Terry's Texas Pinto Beans

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
This is a good basic recipe that is easily adaptable to whatever substitutes you have on hand. I soaked the beans overnight, drained them, then threw everything in the crockpot on low for several hours. I used garlic and onion powder instead of fresh, red salsa instead of green, and chicken stock base and water instead of low-sodium chicken broth (although this did make it a little too salty). Easy and pretty much fool-proof. Thanks!

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2008
Very good! I only had half the amount of mushrooms needed so I subbed shredded green cabbage for the other half. My teenage son really like it as did I. Thanks!

Roasted Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
A nice alternative to chips and such, but a little bland. I'll definitely kick up the spices a bit next time. Like previous comments, I baked them at 350 deg for awhile, then turned it up to 400 for the last several minutes. Watch it closely; these can burn quickly.

Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
We're fans of the fish tacos from Rubio's and this is the only recipe I've found that comes close. The sauce (I made it without capers) was especially tasty. I've also made this using tilapia and it works just fine.

Rice with Lemon and Spinach

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2007
Good flavor, but I ended up adding way more lemon juice than was called for because it was so dry. I also used feta with herbs and added more of that also.

Chicken Pot Pie VIII

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
To save time I used refrigerated pie crusts. I added some minced garlic, dried dill and poultry seasoning because the sauce seemed bland. Also, the first time I made this the sauce was too thin and I had way more than I needed to fill the pie. The second time I cut the broth to 2 cups, which worked out better. I also let the pie rest for about 20 minutes after baking which makes it firmer and easier to serve. My family and friends really like this recipe.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2006
Very good. I didn't have cream or red wine vinegar on hand, so I used whole milk and balsamic vinegar. I think it really needs the cream. Will definitely make again.

Pizza Dough II

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
Excellent! I added some garlic powder and oregano for a little extra flavor. The dough that I froze cooked up just as well as the fresh. Upon tasting a pizza I made using this dough recipe my neighbor said "your pizza rocks!".

Potato Chips

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
Well, Jessica, I don't know whether to thank you or curse you! These are amazingly easy and WAY better than store bought chips. Which means I can now satisfy my crunchy/salty carb cravings whenever they strike; not necessarily a good thing for my waistline.=^(

Spam Musubi

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2005
I've been making spam musubi like this for years, except that I omit the oyster sauce, add a little ginger, bake the marinated spam at 350 deg F for 8-10 minutes, and sprinkle toasted black and white sesame seeds onto the molded rice. Here's a tip: use the spam can as a mold by CAREFULLY cutting the bottom out of it with an x-acto knife. Also, it helps if you use "pre-toasted" nori sheets. Untoasted nori can be tough. Another tip to keep the rice from sticking to your hands; have a bowl of water handy to wet your hands and the musubi mold.

Broiled Tilapia Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2004
This recipe is tasty and the fish stays very moist. However, it completely overpowers the delicate flavor of the tilapia. My son really likes this one so it's going into my recipe box.

Candied Kielbasa

Reviewed: May 3, 2004
Easy and tasty, though sweet. I served it over brown rice, to mixed reviews. I substituted bbq sauce for half of the ketchup. Think I'll try it next time with little hot links and maybe add more horseradish for some extra kick.

Mango Shortbread Bars

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2004
Wow! Very rich, wonderful taste. Gave some to my neighbor and she immediately wanted the recipe, as did her daughter. My only change was to substitute whole wheat flour for one of the three cups of all purpose, and I used cardamom instead of cinnamon. Slicing fresh mango is a messy affair (I used 3 large ones), so next time I may use canned mango (find it at an asian food mkt. or in the ethnic aisle at the store).

Cooking Light magazine's Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2004
Very good tabbouleh recipe! Gave some to my friend (who'd never had it before), she and her hubby raved about it and asked for the recipe. My only change was to add 1/2 of a seeded and chopped cucumber. And this really should be eaten within a day or two as it will tend to get soggy. Thanks!

Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2004
Very good, easy to prepare. I added minced garlic and used dehydrated onions and basil (I was out of onions and marjoram). Leftover soup became VERY thick, so I thinned it out with either milk or chicken broth. Will definitely make this again.
