Orange Herb Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I am a vegetarian (or flexitarian rather) who has never cooked any sort of meat other than ground beef. For my sister's birthday I decided to cook dinner for my entire family and this is what I settled on. A little daunting at first for a first-timer like me, the recipe was actually really simple and straightforward. I followed the recipe as is and it turned out fantastic. I even tasted it just to see what it turned out like and actually liked it so much that I had to have a second bite. I may eventually make this one again but since I don't eat meat in my own home, it's not going to be for quite a while. One note: for someone like me who has never done something like this before, it would have been helpful to know to wash the chicken and pull out any feathers that might still be lurking. Had my sister not been there watching me for entertainment value, I wouldn't have known this little tidbit of info. Thankfully she told me BEFORE I started getting the rest of the ingredients involved.

Almond Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I have tried this recipe a few times and each time it's amazing. I'm vegetarian so I usually use vegetable stock instead of chicken stock although I've tried it with chicken and it's great both ways. In place of the slivered almonds I use shaved as they're thinner and slightly less crunchy. I've tried it with basmati rice instead of instant and I honestly prefer instant in this case (surprisingly)

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2009
I really enjoyed this recipe and followed the directions as is. I was rather concerned though with the bean mixture when I added in the water. Mine was quite runny and didn't start to thicken at all until I added in the spices. Even then, it was still runnier than I would have liked. Next time I would reduce the water slightly, add in some peppers and/or other veggies. I'd also bake a little longer so that the tortilla gets a little crispier and possibly add more amounts of spice. All in all though, it was great and I'll do it again for sure.

Mock Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
I always bought those little "chicken nuggets" in the veggie section that are made from soy. Unfortunately where I live they are really expensive so this is a great alternative. I followed the instructions, dipped the pieces in egg and then a quick round in the bag with some shake-n-bake and they are fantastic. Next time I'll find a better breading recipe but for the first try, shake-n-bake did the trick.

Easy Biscuit Mixture

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2009
Great recipe but it would be nice to see how you use this mix to make biscuits, crusts, pancakes, etc. I winged it and my biscuits turned out good but I have ever used bisquick so I didn't know to turn the mixture into a finished product without some research.

The Best Thai Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
This recipe was fabulous! I accidentally put in three times the amount of ginger but it's still delightful anyway. Next time I think I would add more coconut milk as mine turned out very very thick and I'd like something that would be a little more saucy. But taste . . . peanut heaven.

Cream Soup Base

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
Very tasty but like most others have said . . . it's super thick. I added potatoes and corn and it's delicious.
