Slow Cooker Teriyaki Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
This recipe is very good. I made it a few times for office parties and other pot luck parties because I get requests to bring them. What I love most about this dish is it is so easy to make. I just put the entire recipe in the slow cooker, set the time and it's ready in a few hours. I cook mine LOW for 8 hours just to make sure it's really soft and tender. I brown the pork if I have time but there are a few times where I didn't brown the pork and can honestly say, I can't tell the difference. Also, when I bring this dish to any gathering I buy a least expensive cut of pork or what is on sale and I cubed the pork, about 1/2 an inch or less, so I don't have to slice it and it's easier for people to eat. ***And if I want to bring want to bring up the recipe to a notch, you can add 1 sprig of fresh oregano, 1 bay leaf, and 2 star anise. ***And if I want to influence the dish with my Asian heritage, I add 1-1/2 tablespoon salted black beans (tausi).

Pineapple Banana Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2009
Perfect timing for this recipe. I have extra bananas, pineapples, and cherries leftover from the holidays and didn't know what to do with them. I followed the recipe as suggested but used half whole wheat flour, half all-purpose flour, half of the sugar suggested (my bananas were very ripe and sweet), half applesauce and half oil, didn't use eggs (my 2 yr old son is allegic to them), added cherries in the middle, and to decrease cooking time I made it into muffins instead of bread. Even with these tweekings my muffins came-out really moist and delicious. Best of all, everyone in my family can eat it. I enjoyed making this recipe. Next time I will follow the suggestions of others like putting oatmeal or using pineapple extract. But I will also try using other fruits such as blueberry, cherry and apple. Thank you for sharing a wonderful recipe to all of us.

Chile Garlic BBQ Salmon

Reviewed: May 16, 2009
We love this recipe and this is one of the easiest salmon recipe anyone can make. I made it twice already. The first time, I followed the recipe as it was written. We were very impressed. Though after reading most of the reviews, many reviewers were wondering if the fish can be marinated more than 30 minutes. I, personally do not agree marinating more that 30 minutes. I want to taste my fish, and have the marinade compliment the fish, not the other way around. So the second time I made this recipe, I decided to make my marinade a day early. I combined ALL the ingredient (except for the fish) in a container, added a small drop of sesame oil, and about 15 cilantro leaves. The next day, I poured the marinade on the fish, marinate it for 30 minutes and baked it. Sprinkled it fresh scallions and cilantro. The dish is so delicious. All the ingredients complimented each other. Although, when i serve this dish to a group of people, I think I will strain the marinade before pouring it to the fish. The presentation will be better if my guest do not see the chucks of garlic, ginger and wilted scallions and cilantro. Can't wait to make this again. YUM!

Smoked Salmon Pizette

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
I used this recipe different to what it was intended for. Instead of combining it all as a dish, I layered the recipe between whole wheat bagels. I still combined the cream cheese and sour cream, spread it on bagel and put in a toaster oven. Once the bagels were toasted I layered the rest of the recipe on top of the mixture. It kinda came-out like a lox bagel with a twist. We serve it for brunch and everyone was blown away with it. They kept guessing what's in it that made the difference - they couldn't tell. Thank you for sharing your recipe with us.

Missy's Candied Walnut Gorgonzola Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2011
This salad is great. I prefer a sweeter and crunchier nut topping, so I add 2Tbs of honey to the nuts and sugar mixture, after the sugar melted. I also tried goat cheese if I don't have Gorgonzola.

Beef Pho

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
I followed this recipe to the T, and I think this recipe is just average. I honestly will not try to cook this again because its too much work for a noodle soup. Pho is very inexpensive where I live, so I think i will just continue to patronize our favorite pho place.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 10, 2009
This recipe is a must try. It's so delicious and very simple to make. I followed the recipe and the suggestions of other reviewers to marinate the chops in two parts apple juice to one part soy sauce. The weather was nice outside so hubby decide to grill the chops instead of using the oven or stove top. I added garlic powder just before putting the chops on the grill. I decided to make the apples on the side instead of cooking it with the chops and serve it with garlic fried rice (fry rice in garlic and evoo). Everything came out so delicious . Most importantly, everyone in my family enjoyed it.

Brunch Strata

Reviewed: May 11, 2010
Served this dish to the in-laws on mother's day and everyone raved about it even my picky hubby. I omitted the ham just because I know breakfast meat will be served. It still came out so delicious, we hardly miss the meat. This is my go to recipe for now on every time I have to go to a pot luck or brunch.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: May 2, 2010
This is definitely a 5-star recipe if you follow the suggestion of other reviews to add shredded carrots and the spicy sauce (1 tsp sesame oil, 2 Tbl soy sauce, 2 Tbl rice vinegar and 1 T chili paste). These additions completes the dish.

Pork and Shrimp Pancit

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
I decided to make this dish without the shrimp and pork because hubby and I are trying to be vegetarians, and I have seen this dish made without any meat, so I cooked it like that. The recipe so good that you don't even miss the meat at all. I also have rice and egg noodles so i combined both noodles. Serve it with lemon on the side. Yum!

Chicken Honey Nut Stir Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2009
I love this dish. The sauce and the veggies are perfect together. I didn't have the celery, scallions and cashews but I have all these other veggies in my fridge that I need to cook before they go bad. So I just gathered all the veggies i could find, cut them into small pieces, and basically followed the recipe. Everyone in my family enjoyed this dish, even my picky 2 yr old. This will be my go to veggie dish from now on.

Zucchini Chocolate Orange Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
I didn't have zucchini but tons of banana so I decided to make this into a Banana Chocolate Orange Cake. The combination of all the ingredients came out very good. The cake was moist and delicious. This shows how versatile the recipe is. Thank you for sharing it with us. Next time will make it with zucchini (promise) and will add chocolate chips.

Linguine Pasta with Shrimp and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
We love this recipe!!! I followed this recipe exactly how it was written and it is really good. I'm giving it 4 ½ stars only because my sauce didn't thicken up. Next time, I will follow the suggestion to add a splash of cream or cornstarch to thicken the sauce. Also, using a good white wine is a must. Use white wine you can drink. The wine can make or break the recipe. I used a good bottle of Chardonnay, which we drank while eating the pasta. Also, add fresh basil at the end. The basil added a depth of flavor to the dish. Can’t wait to cook this dish again. Next time, I will add diced mushrooms and zucchini and will use different pasta, maybe a fusilli or gemelli, or any ridged pasta so it can hold the sauce. YUM!
