Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
This is a decent recipe. I agree with others when they say use two different types of cheese. I also add 2-3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice and substitute corn starch for potato flour. (I dissolve the starch in the lemon juice; it's the key to smooth fondue.) I also agree with other reviewers that shredded cheese is the way to go. Make your life easier, use shredded cheese! I promise it's worth the effort!

Lazy Golumbkis

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2010
Aside from burning to the walls of the crockpot a bit, this turned out (just) alright in the end. I had to add a can of beer and a can of tomato soup because it was a pretty thick consistancy by the time I got home. They also helped to make it a bit less bland and. The beer, in particular, really helped add flavor and depth. I don't think I'll make this frequently, but I'll probably give it another go next October.

Nime Chow (Raw Spring Rolls)

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
We absolutely love these fresh spring rolls. They are excellent with the shrimp and they are still really good without it. These are great because you can substitute pretty much any grilled meat or other crisp veggies and they still taste delicious. I like to add fresh mint and cilantro when it's in season.

Tater-Dipped Eggplant

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
I would give this recipe 4 stars for easy and simplicity, but I found the taste to be just a tad bland. I like my eggplant cooked a little spicier. Nice recipe though.

Cheese Ball I

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Easy to make, got great reviews at an office party. I did not have chives on hand, so instead of 1/2 tsp. oregano and 1/2 tsp chives I went with 1 tsp. italian seasoning. (It likely would have been better with chives, but not worth worring about it). Also, I rolled mine in choppd pecans. Set up well and looked lovely!

Cookies 'n' Creme Fudge

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Loved the taste and the appearance, but mine did not set up very well. Don't know what I did wrong. I'll still probably try again, though, because we love how they taste.

Summer Celery Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2009
Loved it! We needed to use up a bunch of celery and this recipe sounded like a great alternative to traditional cream of celery. It was light and refreshing.

Spinach Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2008
Husband and I love this dish. Its super quick and easy to make. I generally have all the ingredients on hand, it goes together in no time at all, it's relatively healthy, and it's perfect to make when I'm too tired to make anything else.

Basil Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
Love this recipe! I have made it exactly from the recipe with excellent results, and I have tailored it to my preferences as well. It turns out best when I add a little bit less oil and honey, and replace about ¼ cup vinegar with ¼ cup white wine. I use whole a couple of whole basil stocks, stems and leaves and run everything but the garlic through the food processor and let stand overnight. I then strain out the basil and add minced garlic. It is a beautiful emerald green color and the flavor is amazing!!!

Tofu Hummus

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2008
I love this recipe for Tofu Hummus and use it as my standard hummus base recipe; although I have to admit that as is it’s not quite right as is. It has a bit too much lemon juice, it’s a bit sharp from the garlic (if you use fresh), and I find it needs salt and spices. And as a traditionalist, I leave out the peanut butter and use tahini instead. However, it’s a super starting point! For classic hummus I add cumin, paprika, a pinch of salt and a bit of cayenne pepper. My favorite is roast garlic hummus- double (or triple!) the amount of garlic and roast it carefully under the broiler first. Also good adding green or black olives, roasted red peppers, or tabasco and crunch red onion. Give this recipe a chance, just be prepared to add your own finishing touches to taste.

Banana Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 22, 2008
I’ve been meaning to try this recipe for a while and I finally did! Husband and I loved how the meatloaf turned out. The banana flavor was very subtle, and if I didn’t know to look for it I don’t think I could have guessed what it was. It was very moist and tender. The banana was mashed really well into a really consistent texture, so it was very evenly distributed. Also, I added more onion than called for (I used half of a small onion) and that likely masked the banana flavor as well. Used rice instead of bread crumbs; just a personal preference. As per suggestions of others, I went all out and called in a Jamaican meal: served the banana meatloaf with Jamaican Coleslaw and a tropical mango salad. We will definitely make this again, maybe even make it into the standard meatloaf recipe.

Rosemary Sherry Pork Chops

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
Husband and I loved this dish. I added crushed, dried rosemary, dill, and taragon to the flour mixture and it added wonderful flavor. As suggested by others, I added extra stock and sherry and made a delicious gravey. Served the pork with roast garlic mashed potatoes and a salad. We will definitely have this again.
