Harvested Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2011
first try I found this a bit wet and dull .. okay for the boiled veggie type. Second try I added 1/2 tsp paprika; 1/2 tsp chili flakes; 4 cloves garlic; pinch of fresh thyme & pinch fresh rosemary. Reduced broth to 4 cups and added a bit of corn starch to thicken at the end. Served over cheddar tea biscuits .. awesome.

Broccoli with Garlic Butter and Cashews

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
good stuff .. Steamed the broccoli and doubled up on the sauce (1/2 the butter). I let the sauce reduce while the broccoli steamed - the sauce thickened considerably on its own. Added toasted almonds on the second go - it was just as yummy. Also (stored in the fridge sauce & broccoli seperately overnight) heated the next day and tossed with pasta .. fantastic.

Mom's Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
Bumper crop of zucchini this year ... looking for things to do with it all. I would have given ths 5 stars but the sugar was just way out there ... I reduced my second batch to 1 cup and it was still quite sweet. Otherwise a great recipe.

Roquefort Pear Salad

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
a confirmed blue cheese hater; I found it pallatable in this salad in small amounts. Round two I sub'ed in feta as suggested by others and yummo. I added a small amount of butter to the melted sugar (before adding the pecans) to prevent tooth cracking sugar rocks.

Pesto Pizza

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2012
Good way to use up an abundant basil & tomato crop ... Used the "easy pesto" from this site (lowered the sodium) & fresh black olives (never from a can). Put these ingredients onto a pita and baked at 425 for 20 minutes - let stand 5 minutes to cool and this was a five. I've rated it a 4 as written.

I really liked this and you can adjust the brown sugar to taste ... made exactly as recipe listed except didn't allow to marinade, Whipped it up and straight into the oven and served with the "yummy Bok choy salad" from this site with a little bit of left over rice.

Portuguese Chicken I

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2011
Fantastically delicious ... 5 stars would have been granted, if the chicken didn't quality for a round of baketball. Round two .. we removed the chicken after 20 minutes of simmering and tented until the sauce reduced; 1/2'ed the cream content and added the chicken back before serving ... we give it 10 stars now.

Black Pepper Beef and Cabbage Stir Fry

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2012
I did like this recipe but found it lackluster ... Second Round: added a TBSP of fish sauce to the meat (1/2 ground Pork 1/2 beef) before frying ... added 1/2 tsp ginger with garlic after browning meat and instead of water broth. A hit of sriracha at the end and that brought the rating up to 4.5 and made it a keeper ...

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2012
The blueberries totally made this great. I would have given it 5 stars if just weren't so sweet. I will definitely go half if not a quarter of the sugar on the next batch.

Best Marinara Sauce Yet

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2012
Would have given this 5 stars; I always under salt in recipes (unless baking) and did so here but still found it salty. I omitted it next batch and added garden fresh oregano and basil for flavor. Fantastic base; I was taste testing with shotglasses nevermind a spoon .... round three - less salt, a pinch of sugar and blamo this is a 5 star keeper
