Basic Microwave Risotto

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Oh my goodness. This is a comfort food dish. I have only had risotto one other time, and I made it from a recipe that required the stirring over the stove method. This was so much better - admittedly, I have never had "real" risotto. I followed the advice of others and sauteed my veggies, and added at the end. I served this with a "raw" kale salad, and it was great. I also found it to be very "forgiving" in that frequent checking did not destroy the outcome.

Eggplant Rollatini

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2011
I was looking for low carb meatless main dishes for variety and stumbled across this recipe. I did make some changes that made each serving 11.5 carbs each. First I put salt on the eggplant pieces and let them sit on paper towels for about 20 minutes to reduce any chance of bitterness. Instead of using the bread crumbs, I used 1/2 c ground pine nuts mixed with 1 c ground pork skins seasoned with basil and oregano. I also used more oil than 2 T, probably more like 1/4 - 1/2 cup for the frying of the eggplant. But this recipe was simply amazing even with these changes. My husband loved it. We ate it with spaghetti squash.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2011
I am eating this soup as I type this review. I have made a lot of lentil soup recipes, but this is the best basic recipe I've found. I tweaked it similar as others did, by tripling the herbs; I also cut the liquid by 2 cups using 2 cans chicken broth and 1 cup water, and I used 1 c red lentils and 1 c green lentils. When dished in the bowl, I added 1/4 tsp salt and a good squirt of sriracha to add my beloved heat. After these, it was excellent. I believe I would have found the recipe "as is" very bland. Hope this helps.

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
I made this recipe last night for supper along with a broccoli salad and creamy macaroni and cheese. I didn't have any trouble getting the cakes to stay together, and I followed the recipe just as written, packing the grated zucchini to measure 2 1/2 cups. These were a great hit at the supper table. It is surprising how much they really do taste like crab cakes.

Cheesy Ham and Hash Brown Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
This makes a huge amount. I froze the leftovers, and they are good reheated in the oven straight from the freezer at 300 degrees covered in foil for about an hour. It has a perfect contrast of potatoey, cheesy, sour cream goodness, with ham throw in for extra. Add salt and pepper at the table, and you have a perfect savory breakfast.

Peanut Pie

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
This was really an answer to my peanut butter craving. I made it exactly as per recipe. It is very rich, but very pleasing. Thanks for a great recipe!

Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
This was really good for a creamy macaroni and cheese. I wanted to try a recipe that would make a soupy like sauce, and this one did fit the bill. There were heaps left over, and the left overs are good heated in the microwave.

Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
My mother used to make something similar, but she didn't like to fool with the bundles, so she would make a casserole instead. This time of year, it is difficult for me to find fresh green beans, so I used canned whole green beans - 2 cans - instead. I made it into a casserole. It was really good. Next time, in keeping with the casserole approach since I am lazy like my mother, I would definitely decrease the brown sugar, add more soy sauce, and decrease the boullion liquid using 2 cubes in a lesser amount. Thanks for a great recipe!

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2010
I made this the other night, and I was surprised at how close it was to what I have eaten in a restaurant and loved so dearly. I was unable to grill outside because of the weather, so I used the oven and broiler. I really like my chicken in tiny bite sized pieces and very tender. The only changes I would make next time would be to pound the chicken thin and marinate for a little longer (maybe 4 hours), grill or broil the chicken whole rather than in skewers, and cut up after cooking into tiny pieces. Since we like our food really hot, I will add more hot pepper next time, but I will definitely be making again. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!
