Mandarin Chicken Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 20, 2013
This is delicious and so very pretty! Like all salads, it is a little work, but you can (and should) prepare it early, so there are no last-minute things to do, which is a big plus for me. The only changes I made were to use regular sesame oil (I have not found toasted sesame oil) and used rice wine vinegar. They were both just fine. My only change for the next time will be to place the spinach as a bed in the salad bowls, and serve the rest on top. I found the spinach difficult to incorporate into the salad bowl, even though I used baby spinach. I love the dressing also, and I did use regular onion soup mix.

Easy Asian Pasta Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2013
Yummy! and easy to make. I made it exactly as written, but here are my notes: • I used Rice Wine Vinegar, which is what I had. I don't know if it is the same thing as the rice vinegar the recipe called for. • The recipe did not specify, but I nuked the sugar snap peas for 2 minutes. Next time I will just blanch them in boiling water, and then plunge in ice water. • I toasted the sesame seeds in a small sauté pan over medium heat, shaking the pan while they turned a toasty color. Very easy. • I found the sweet chili sauce in the ethnic section at Publix, and I'm glad I bought a good size bottle, because this dish will go in my regular, often prepared, recipe file.

Pork Tenderloin Diablo

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2012
I’m giving this two stars only because the method of cooking the pork is so great. Tender and juicy meat. As for the sauce, no one in my family cared for it and I had to rinse it all off. I must say I will continue to cook pork tenderloin this way, and leave out the mustard, horseradish, and cayenne. Instead I will sauté some mushrooms and onions in the pan, add the broth and cream, and go with that. IMO, browned pork has a wonderful flavor and aroma all its own, and hiding that with horseradish is a mistake.

Egg in a Hole

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2012
My mother made these for us back in the 1940s. She called them Bird's-Nest Eggs. Always a family favorite!
