Barbeque Halibut Steaks

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2014
This was delicious! I did marinate it for about 2.5 hr - not sure if that made and difference or not - and basted while on the BBQ. Best halibut I have made.

Breakfast Pies

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
Three stars for flavor and 4 stars for practicality. Made this so we could eat them while travelling on a long trip and not have to stop as there are not may option in the first three hours of our route. I just didn't care for that funny flavor of refrigerator dough. Will try again with homemade dough.

WWII Oatmeal Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: May 3, 2014
Very good. If you like molasses, of course. If you don't, then this recipe is not for you as the strong molasses flavor comes through. I made these as bars for time saving which was good. I also did an experiment: I added coconut, sunflower seeds, and walnuts to 1/2 the recipe. I really liked the version with the additions.

Honey Glazed Ham

Reviewed: May 3, 2014
The flavor was fine/good. I'm just not a big fan of the hard rind created in this process - I prefer a softer and juicer outcome.

Corned Beef and Cabbage I

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
I didn't actually make this but nobody else who reviewed it seems to have either. This is the most recipe rewriting I have seen in any review. I read 12 reviews and finally gave up as they all were telling about how they make theirs, not about this recipe. Very disappointing. I am heading back to the pressure cooker instructions for this evening's meal. :-(

Chef John's Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2014
This was good but not quite the to-die-for that I was hoping for. It is more on the creamy side than the cheesy side (even though I did use sharp cheddar). I will try a different recipe next time. I am not after a boxed-style mac and cheese, just something a little more cheesy. I followed the recipe as written.

Sesame Crusted Mahi Mahi with Soy Shiso Ginger Butter Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2014
Wow. Delicious! Even my picky 5 yr old asked for thirds but there was no more. I couldn't bring myself to use all the butter so used about 1/3 c. Did not have shiso. Mahi is such a nice, firm fish so I finished it on the grill instead of the oven. Superb. Oh, one more thing...it took me more like 30 min prep- the sauce just takes a some time to complete. It could be done ahead- the actual cook time is quick. Thank you for this recipe!

Easy Olive Martini Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2014
This was good as written but not fabulous. I made it exactly as written. I had some left over which I sliced thinly and blended with the sauce...now THAT is 5 star flavor that just didn't pop until it was sliced and the sauce infused the meat. And, by the way, this made fantastic chicken for chicken salad. I will make again with this small modification.

Roasted Swiss Chard with Feta

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2013
I personally give this 5 stars but the rest of my family was not impressed so I am giving it 4. My husband and 7 year old kindly finished their servings to please me, my 5 year old (not much of a cooked vegetable eater) tasted it but did not want to eat it. I ate 3/4 of the pan myself and loved it. In defense of the recipe, I over salted it quite a bit. I will try this again with very little salt and leave the shaker for individuals to use. I did add parmesan with the feta and then pine nuts in the last 5 minutes. My 7 year old liked it with a little lemon juice (I did not).

Pumpkin Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2013
Off the chart delicious! Great texture. Substituted flour with 1/4 wheat flour. Used home-pureed pumpkin. Served with whipped cream and sprinkled nutmeg on top. What a treat. Kids loved it, too. Thank you!

Fast Salmon with a Ginger Glaze

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2013
Family loved it so giving it five starts. It is very flavorful: I would give it four stars since it is a little too powerful for me but I admit the flavors are very good. I have 5 and 7 year old boys so used just 1/2 T chili-garlic paste for fear of being too spicy hot - this was just right...a little warm but not hot. Otherwise made as directed. They (husband included) all loved it.

Bellepepper's Orzo and Wild Rice Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2013
Love it. Suggest using 1 c wild rice. I actually used a grain blend called Soo Foo, which is a little peppery so I skipped the pepper. Used champagne vinegar because I had no white balsalmic. Very yummy!

Baron's Blackberry Cobbler

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2013
Love it. I really like the topping. I am accustomed to a biscuit-like top. This is more cake-like. More moist and chewy than dry. I really like it. In fact, I made about 3/4 of a recipe and forgot to reduce the amount of topping so I poured the left overs into cupcake paper for snacking. Very good and easy recipe.

Poor Man's Caviar

Good stuff. I could not find black eyed peas in our local store so I used black and white beans.

Pumpkin Muffins II

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2013
It seemed like the recipe called for an aweful lot of sugar. I used 1 3/4 c instead of 2, not wanting to tweak it too much without trying it first. It was good. The spice amounts seemed way excessive, especially for my young boys. I used the cinnamon and salt as written and cut the rest in 1/2. The result was the perfect amount of spice. I used 1/2 applesauce/1/2 oil. UPDATE: I made this again with the same modifications and a crumb top. Super! Made the crumb top using 2/3 cup packed brown sugar 3/4 cup rolled oats 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 6 tablespoons butter

Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2013
Not the best ever but good. I would give it 3.5 stars for flavor but I love the moistness of it so leaned to 4 stars. My husband, on the other hand, said it's the best carrot cake he has ever had so there's another reason for 4 stars. I made it exactly as written. I don't care for the texture created by the coconut so I will leave it out next time. Still it seems like something is missing...just can't quite put my finger on it. The frosting is absolutely perfect.
