Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2012
I have made this rice twice. It seems to have a rich quality to it. The richness outweighs any new flavor. So it doesn't really taste the way it sounds. Once you get past that expectation, it is really fantastic. The first time, I received comments from my girls that the rice was good. The second time, the men of the house became passionate about this rice. I prepared as instructed with no problems. Served with pan fried chicken thighs and stir fry veggies with soy sauce and garlic. Beautiful, although the rice seems to have upstaged the rest of the meal. Seems like it would be good with a Hawaiian pork dish (my next cooking adventure).

Greek Pasta Salad I

Reviewed: May 3, 2012
I really enjoyed this recipe. I did add a cucumber to empty out my frig. I used jumbo olives, not so great. I would used smaller olives or greek olive instead. My husband and I liked it, however, the kids not so much.

Pumpkin Gingerbread

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2012
Between the combination of spices, the pumpkin and the generous amount of oil, this was a BIG hit. I made two loaves and they didn't last the day. One I added raisins to one of the loaves which was great. If I make it again, I will add nuts as well.

Hamburgers with Mushroom Gravy

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2011
This recipe has a great combo: easy and tasty. Served with mashed potatoes. The gravy was delicious. Would be even better with mushrooms and/or other veggies added. I used lean ground beef which made it difficult to hold the patties together. Kids were a bit reluctant, but everyone ate it and seemed to like it. I have never used panko before, so now it is in my pantry! Thanks for the practical, yummy recipe.

Mom's Cucumbers

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
Perfect balance of ingredients. I have used many recipes, but this one is the one I have been looking for. The kids will finally eat my cucumbers! I didn't add the celery salt although it would probably taste good.

Truck-Stop Buttermilk Pancakes

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2010
I have been making this recipe for years untouched and EVERYONE in my family loves it. In fact if they see the buttermilk in my frig, the kids say "Are you making Truck-Stop Pancakes?". So spongy and delicious. Also, since the amounts of ingredients is so even you can adjust the amount without many fractions. My family of six had ingredients based on 4 eggs, flour, etc. I think they could have eaten the full batch!
