Chocolate-y Iced Mocha

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2013
This is a keeper! I am not a fan of sweet coffee drinks so I modified it slightly. I used my own cocoa mix which is from the can of cocoa, but with half the sugar they suggest and my own syrup from a recipe here on AR. I reduce the sugar in that also. The almond milk gives it a richness I love. Just what I need - more caffeine! Thanks Linda, I may make this by the gallon, LOL.

Kiwinanaberry Cream Smoothie

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2013
I have made this several times now and with my changes, of course I think it is worth 5 stars. Without them maybe 2 stars. As written it almost seemed acidic to me so I exchanged the tangelo for mango and eliminated the berries and sugar. Either almond milk or 1% are my preference and fat free Greek yogurt.

Margarita Marinade

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2013
I used a raspberry infused tequila, which makes a very tasty drink so I was disappointed with the marinade. There was nothing wrong with it and it smelled wonderful while cooking. The downside was that even after 24 hours in the marinade there was very little perceptible flavor boost and the honey made it almost guaranteed to char. I doubt I will make it again, but thank you for the chance to try something new.

Grilled Cod

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2013
I used a fresh caught cod steak, so I had to adjust the timing. I had no lemon pepper so I used fresh ground and my homemade creole seasoning. This turned out so buttery, moist and delicious. Now I remember why I love cod so much. Thanks for a great addition to our grilling rotation.

Moroccan Spicy Carrot Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2013
I'm always looking for new ways to serve carrots and I'll happily add this to my rotation. I overdid the vinegar (bottle slipped) so they were a tad acidic, but still quite good. Thanks, Malak!

Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2013
What a difference those two little tbs of cream cheese make! I have tried other recipes and been disappointed, but this really is good. I cheated a little. Instead of cooking the garlic and adding it, I used Garlic Herb low fat cream cheese. This will be repeated often. Thanks, Andie.

Vanilla Banamango Smoothie

Reviewed: May 31, 2013
I loved the zip the ginger added to the flavor. If I hadn't put them in myself I doubt I would have known there were carrots in there. I think you get a better fruit taste if a smoothie isn't too cold so I don't add ice, my banana, mango and juice were refrigerated. For me, this is just perfect. Thank you, Ecco Star.

Herb Baked Catfish

Reviewed: May 27, 2013
The only catfish available here is farm raised, which I don't care for, so I used sea perch. I followed the rest of the recipe. We enjoyed this and I imagine it would be even better with wild caught catfish. Thanks, Jordan!

Braised Corned Beef Brisket

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
I will not be ordering from the Kosher Deli any longer! My house smelled wonderful all afternoon and we were not disappointed when we sat down to eat. This was the first time I ever cooked corned beef without the cabbage and potatoes. My MIL cooked her briskest this way, but even she never did it with corned beef. Thanks, Julie, this is a keeper!

Creamed Cucumbers

Reviewed: May 26, 2013
While this worked surprisingly well, I feel like there is a flavor boost missing and I can't quite decide what it may be. I added finely sliced red onion, but it still needs something. This is a good base and I will keep fooling with it. Thanks, Pugmama.

Persian-Style Tomato Avocado Salad

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
I'm not a fan of cilantro so I replaced it with fresh mint. Everything else I left as per recipe. This will be repeated many times especially once tomato season gets here. Thanks, Chad.

Restaurant Style Mango Lassi

Reviewed: May 20, 2013
I used fresh, very ripe mango which I had refrigerated overnight and skipped the ice. Heavenly!

Refrigerator Rolls I

Reviewed: May 19, 2013
I have never used self rising flour and yeast together before. I used butter in place of shortening. That was my only ingredient change. Rather than rolling out the dough and using a cutter, I simply divided the dough in twelve portions and allowed it to rise again in muffin tins. Mine baked for about 18 minutes at 350. I was surprised how dense, not heavy, but dense, they baked up.

Crab Strata

Reviewed: May 18, 2013
I can't imagine eating this or breakfast, but it makes a great brunch dish. I used sweet onion, finely diced in place of the green onions because that is what I had on hand. The dish looked a bit bland to me so I sprinkled a bit of sweet paprika over the top before baking. In the future I will add celery seed, cayenne, or possibly Old Bay because it is rather tame although rich. Thanks for a new way to use crabmeat. 5/19/13 Update: After refrigerating leftovers for 24 hrs after baking and finding them far more flavorful than yesterday I believe this should be assembled and refrigerated the day before it is to be used. I do wish I had done so.

Probiotic Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins

Reviewed: May 14, 2013
We liked these. I made half the recipe and got 8 generous sized muffins. I used fat free Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream and added 2 tbs instant coffee because I like how it enhances the flavor of chocolate. I only had unsweetened chocolate squares and found the muffins to be as sweet as I would like them. They are moist and lighter than I expected. Thanks for sharing!

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

Reviewed: May 10, 2013
This sort of grew on me. I didn't care for it when I first tasted it, but I didn't hate it so I continued to drink it and I found myself actually enjoying it. My banana had been refrigerated, not frozen, so I only added a few ice cubes and I did not add any honey. I wouldn't have wanted it any sweeter. I still prefer my fruit and yogurt smoothies, but this is a good alternative.

Extreme Veggie Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: May 8, 2013
These were about the best scrambled eggs I have ever cooked. I used butter in place of oil and omitted the green pepper, using red instead and I added some green onion I wanted to use up. Along with a salad it made a nice light supper. Thanks, Eiore!

The Simple Sauza® Margarita

Reviewed: May 3, 2013
We really enjoyed this. Instead of the mix we used fresh lime juice cut with sparkling water. I never cared for tequila until I tried the Sauza Silver, Blue agave

Sauza® Raspberry Margarita

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
This was a hit. We couldn't find Razzmatazz, so DS steeped fresh raspberries in vodka for 3 days and we used 1 part fresh lime juice to 3 parts water. I like the combination of raspberry and lime and the Sauza Blue Agave tequila just makes it all come together.

Merry Mango Sauza®-Rita

Reviewed: May 1, 2013
I loved the concept but found this too sweet as written. Omitting the sugar helped. Now that I own a bottle of mango rum, I'll be serving these made with Sauza Blue Agave tequila all summer. I also think I may make my sour with equal measures of lemon and lime juices.
