Shrimp Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2012
First time 5 star; second time with a small change 7 star; good stuff. My mango was a little sour so I added 2 tblspns honey to it instead of the shrimp. I blackened the shrimp to cut the sweetness and this was fantastic.

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

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.

Asian Salmon

Reviewed: May 4, 2012
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.

Key Lime Pie VII

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2014
Only problem with this pie is I had to eat the entire thing in two sittings .....addictive ..... Second round I used 1 can condensed milk, doubled the lime and sour cream (I like it tart, as written I found it way too sweet)and with the adjustment I ate it in 1 sitting ....

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.

Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2012
I stole this sauce recipe; added a garlic pwdr & chili's rather than raw garlic. Subbed blanched Chinese long beans, stir fried with onion, dry roasted peanuts and garlic with this sauce over top ... yum, this was good. May just add as a new recipe since I can never find anything to do with Chinese long beans on here .. thanks for the inspiration

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.
