Curried Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2008
This was a fabulous soup - I did doctor the ingredients a bit - I added more curry paste, cayenne pepper, Kosher salt and dried basil leaves. My boyfriend insists that on the next go-around I add baby peas and shrimp - since he has very good taste, I just might listen (for once). Thank you for submitting this healthy and delicious meal. Cheers! **Update** - added the shrimp and it was . . . SWITCHED ON! (a.k.a EXCELLENT!) - Thanks again

Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Mar. 12, 2009
This truly was an easy and excellent meal. I would recommend marinating the pork for a few hours (just to make the delicious flavors of garlic and rosemary even more, well . . . delicious). Also, I always cook pork until its internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F - then I let it rest for ten minutes - its internal temperature will reach at least 170 degrees F. For a 2.5 lb roast this amounts to one hour and fifteen minutes at 350 degrees F. Thanks for the recipe.

Sugar Snap Peas with Mint

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
I had to make these the-less-than-fresh-ingredient-way. I bought frozen peas and used onion powder, garlic salt, olive oil and dried mint (because I had none of the other items on hand). I nuked the peas for three minutes, added the spices/oil, continued nuking for two more minutes and then added the dried mint. Wow! What a combination of flavors! Next time I will do it right, but if you're in a pinch this will suffice.

Banana Muffins with a Crunch

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2009
These muffins were excellent and easy to make (and I am by no means adept at baking). I did follow the recommendations with regard to the order of ingredients, as well as, using wheat flour and white flour and using two mashed bananas (I cut the recipe in half, because it's just me). I did not use any granola or oatmeal (just didn't feel like it), but next time I will add either to give the muffins a different texture. However, with these deletions and modifications, the muffins were very moist and flavorful.

Asian Roll Lettuce Wrap

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
Great meal and recipe - very malleable. I did follow the advice of another reviewer - browning the meat and then adding the sauce - to this I also added the green onions, minced water chestnuts and homemade chili paste. Also, I did not have the pepper or radishes so . . . I did not use them :-). A few words of caution . . . use light soy sauce or at least watch the amount of regular soy sauce you do end up using - I had a heavy hand with the regular soy sauce and ended up making it a bit saltier than necessary.

Apple Butter Spice Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2009
I followed this recipe to a T - I liked it, but found that layering the bundt cake (my shape of choice)as recommended - batter, topping, batter, topping - left me with a crumbling, sugary layer - perhaps the flaw is not in the recipe, but in my oven - next time I am going to reverse the layering and add some bourbon - yum!

Apple Butter Beauties

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2009
Really enjoyed these, but must 'fess up, I did make some adjustments: (like some other reviews suggested) I added the apple butter before baking, I used walnuts (ground half of the amount and left the remaining amount finely chopped - I am a texture freak), didn't have wheat germ so I used whole wheat flour and milled flax seed and lastly, I used the entire egg. The result a moist cake like cookie that reminded us of pecan sandies - will definitely make again - thank you Kevin.
