Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2014
This was really great! Thank you! I followed it basically as written, except that I downsized it a bit for the amount of mahi I had. Oh, and I totally forgot the garlic, but the vegetables I made along side had so much I decided it wasn't worth throwing it in at the end! Was excellent with white rice and a stir fry of mushrooms, soy beans, onions and cilantro. Merci.

Baked Pork Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2014
The supposed use of spring roll wrappers (rice paper) is very deceiving. I used authentic rice paper, which is the traditional spring roll wrapper. f you do this, it becomes a complete mess after baking. The wrappers are all gooey and only the corners crisp up. I had to empty all of my spring rolls (after I attempted to bake them in the rice paper) and start over again- with egg roll wrappers. These worked perfect. The filling is very good, but the ingredient list should be altered.

Jalapeno Popper Spread

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2010
I thought this was great, though I did slightly alter the recipe. I halved the recipe (just 2 of us, and this was still MORE than enough) and instead of using 1/2 cup of mayo, I used a tablespoon of light mayo and a tablespoon of light sour cream. My cream cheese wasn't softened, so I stuck it in the microwave for 45 seconds- everything mixed together smoothly. I also added a bit of shredded cheddar cheese to the top. We served it with tortilla chips and I had to take the dish away, for fear that my husband would eat almost an entire package of cream cheese in one sitting.

The Best Meatballs You'll Ever Have

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
These came out fantastic! I just prepared these for tomorrow's dinner, but had to make a small one to taste. I was a little apprehensive about the yellow mustard, but it really complimented the flavors quite well. I cooked the meatballs in a cast iron skillet and will drop them in the sauce tomorrow, but really- these don't even need a sauce. Great addition to my recipe box! Thanks!!

Chicken Broth in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
My broth came out more around a 3 star, but I have a feeling that was because I added too much liquid. However, with a bit of bouillon this is definitely 4 star. I think it could be 5 star if left to cook even longer. I used a whole fryer chicken (raw), an onion, 2 carrots (I would omit these next time- the broth came out a bit sweet), 3 celery stalks, 1/2 tspn of basil, a pinch of dried thyme, and salt/pepper. I used about 6 cups of water and 2 cups of store bought chicken broth that I had in the fridge (this brought the liquid line to about 3/4 up the chicken). After 8 hours of cooking though I had to give in and add 1 tspn of bullion (granted, this is not a ton, equivalent of 1 cup of bought broth). I'm not sure if the problem was with the chicken or liquid amounts, but with just that one tspn of bullion the broth is extremely flavorful and rich. We're making chicken and dumplings out of it in about an hour and looking forward to it!

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2010
I made this as a 'pre-Thanksgiving' meal when I learned our Thanksgiving hosts would not be serving the traditional turkey dinner. I listened to the other reviews and added chicken broth to the roasting pan to ensure that the garlic didn't burn. I served the hens with purple fingerling potatoes, asparagus, and a spinach/bacon salad. The meal was a hit and everyone enjoyed the hens. For purchasing reference- the males each ate a whole hen, and the females ate a 1/2 hen a piece.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2009
I think this would be much better if the recipe called for browned and drained Italian sausage rather than chicken, broccoli (in addition to the spinach), and if the white sauce had several cloves of roasted garlic blended into it. The recipe as it stands was a bit bland, and the chicken was just kind of 'there'. I used 2% milk and the sauce was super thick- I cannot imagine using whole milk. That said, I think the flour and butter could both be halved- saving a ton of carbs, calories, and fat. I also ended up using only 2.5 cups of mozzarella altogether- using anymore would have just been gluttonous.

Basic Ham and Bean Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2009
Good, but even with adjustments (substituted in chicken broth and used a ham bone plus ham) it lacked in flavor. While I thought this was mediocre, my fiance scarfed down 2 bowls so I averaged my score out to 4 stars. I think this could have been much better with a bit of tomato paste and spice.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2009
I was really expecting something spectacular after reading several of the reviews, but this dish was just a standard week day meal, nothing to really set it a part from all the other reduction type pasta dishes. Like many others, I added 1 tbspn of cream at the end (the sauce was just not thickening properly). It was good and I may make it again, but certainly not in an attempt to impress anyone with the taste or presentation. While chibi chef's photo is beautiful, and I really tried to make mine look like that, it's just not a 'pretty' dish (look at the other photos).

Chicken Jalfrezi

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
I adore this dish, but similar to other reviewers- have made slight variations in my ingredient list. I decreased the turmeric and coriander by 1 tspn each, and add in 1 tspn of garam masala and 1 tspn of paprika. It's so nice that naan is available at most grocery stores now- it's perfect for sopping up the sauce!

Fresh Tomato Pie

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
This was quite good, but as other reviewers did, I modified it a bit. I scooped the inside/seeds out of the tomatoes before adding them to the dish (because of this I probably had to use 25% more tomatoes). I also cut down the mayo a bit and used the new olive oil mayo (which I think heats much better than standard mayo). Lastly, I added green onions, pre-cooked bacon, and shredded cheddar cheese to the top.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
This was not to our taste. If you like hot ketchup- you'll love this. Hardly any sauce ('slop') and sickeningly sweet. I would never make this again- we tried to salvage it, but couldn't.
