Curried Cashew, Pear, and Grape Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
This salad is AMAZING! I followed the recipe exact, with the exception of adding *more bacon* (I used a maple bacon, about hlaf of the pkg)... for convenience I toasted the cashews in the oven at 350 for just over 10 minutes while I cooked the bacon. The dressing is very good! it would also be a great basting sauce for chicken or pork on the grill... It is a impressive salad, with a bit of a spicy kick. I tossed the salad with the nuts/dressing, but left the pears out. I put the salad on each plate, then added the pears in slices ontop of each serving.. about 3 fanned-out slices. makes for a nice presentation. Served the salad with 'Savory Garlic Marinated Steaks' from this site and mini roasted potatoes. the salad went FAST.. people were squabbeling over who got the last bit.. excellent, thanks so much!! definite keeper :))

Caribbean Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2011
I DON'T EVEN LIKE ZUCCHINI... but someone gave me one from their garden (a huge one), and I didn't have the heart to say no... I found this recipe.. I got 8 loaves of bread from it .. it is so moist, and the blend of flavors is wonderful! I will *definitly* make this again.. and buy zucchini just to make some. and it's healthy, to boot. LOVE!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2011
Can't go wrong with this recipe. I had a lasagna recipe that I used for years, but I'll use this one now.... use fresh herbs, and don't omit the fennel seeds! I had some of the sauce left over .. I froze it and used it a week later for spaghetti ... just delicious. and makes the house smell sooooo good. everyone will think you have a italian chef in the house ;))))

I was looking to make quinoa for a healthy lunch option... I took one reviewers suggestion and added some black beans, corn, and diced up steak ... (did double the spices) I rolled it in a sundried tomato tortilla (the red tortillas), and sprinkled a bit of cheese ontop .. YUM. will make again, love this recipe..

Pork Chops Stuffed with Smoked Gouda and Bacon

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2011
if you want to impress someone .... make this. it looks and tastes sooo professional. my only suggestion is to go with the gouda. it really makes the flavor! can use parsley, or green onion/chives ..also, these are REALLY FILLING. go light with the side dishes, like steamed veg's or a salad ... EDIT - I usually make these pork chops, recipe as stated, but I had some tenderloin, and wanted to stuff it (was going to do apple), but then I thought of this recipe .. it worked GREAT. lay the 'stuffing' on the tenderloin (I used a bit more bacon for the filling, like 7 or 8 slices), roll it up/tie it .. I then made a mustard maple glaze for the outside: 1/4C. maple syrup (buy a high quality maple syrup, not breakfast/aunt jemima syrup), 1/3. cup dijon mustard, plus 1 tsp balsamic vinegar. brush onto rolled tenderloin w/ pastry brush and I cooked it at 400 degrees F for 35 - 40 min .. took it out halfway through and brushed it with the sauce again .. came out perfect .. insides gooey. served with 'garlic dill new potatoes' from this site, and turkish flatbread bread w/ spinach dip. will do it like this from now on (easier than the chops).. great recipe all around.

Penne with Sausage and Broccoli Rabe

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2011
This is delicious, quick and easy! I couldn't find any broccoli rabe, so I just used regular broccoli. I followed another reviewers suggestion and only used 2 tsp of the red pepper flakes.. Perfect spicyness factor. For those who don't like spice I would suggest to skip the flakes and just use some diced red or green pepper... I have made this recipe a few times as stated, but when I made it today, I had some Alfredo sauce in the fridge.. I added some of that at the end of cooking (not much, just enough to coat it.. Maybe 1/4 or 1/3cup?) and it didn't change the flavor, but was really good! Just creamier/added to the sauce..any pasta noodle would work well (bowtie, elbow, fettucini, ect) a sprinkle of fresh parm ontop is a must!

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2011
this sauce is awesome! I have used it for salad, and as a spread on sandwiches (very good!).. but I usually make it to go with the 'Restaurant-Style Buffalo Chicken Wings' recipe n this site .. I make the buffalo sauce and dredge the wings in that, Leave a few un-sauced for the kids, just deep-fried, and on the side I make this sauce for them... the sauce (and wings) are gobbled up instantly... also very good with fries topped with cheese, fresh cooked bacon chunks, and green onion! just drizzle it on or do the dipping thing....

Laura's Lemon Roasted Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
my new favorite potatoe recipe :) I used 1/4C. Olive Oil, skipped the butter, and it turns out you really don't need any.. and used 3 tbsp's lemon juice instead of the two.. I flipped and tossed my potatoes in the pan every 15/20min. so they browned evenly... they came out perfect!

Authentic German Potato Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
this is a awesome sidedish! I have never had german potato salad, so wasn't sure what to expect, but wanted a different potato dish for dinner... I followed the recipe exactly, have made it numerous times now it is a family fav.. I boil the potatoes with the skin on, then let them sit on the counter to cool. when they are cool enough to touch, I peel the skins off.. I definitely use *more* bacon! the vinegar/water ratio is perfect. these also make amazing hashbrowns for breakfast the next day, just throw them in the frying pan with a tsp of coconut oil/olive oil and some ore fresh herbs. a keeper!

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
Mmm comfort food ... this hit the cheese-y spot. I made as directed, only thing I did different was add 1/2C. chopped onion and 1/2C. chopped red pepper, sauteed them and then mixed into the bowl with everything else.... I would stick to the potato soup, it comes out so creamy and the taste is like scalloped potatoes... I wouldn't change a thing. great alternative for a breakfast, would be great with some bacon and toast on the side.... keeper.

Curried Chicken Tea Sandwiches

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2011
I use this as pita pocket filling for lunches ... I make it a bit chunkier/don't dice things up as much, since it's just going into the pita .. but I buy a rotisserie chicken, and shred it. I then use 1/2C. mayo, and I usually just use lemon juice... I have used craisins, grapes, or a handful of golden raisins... all work well, I just go with what I have on hand.

Manicotti Alla Romana

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2012
great recipe! I also, like most people, substituted sausage for the beef...other than that, I followed the recipe exact. I stuffed the shells uncooked, using a ziploc bag w/ the tip cut off. this easily made two 9x13 pans of manicotti, so I made the white sauce twice. not doubled the sauce, but actually made it two times in a row, to pour into each seperate pan. (the other pan I put in my freezer).. I bought fresh spinach, added it by sight (I added it to the frying pan w/ the meat..) didn't even cut up half of a 'bundle', and it seemed adequate. will make again!
