Conchi's Sangria

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
Great flavor, loved the touch of cinnamon. I would Definately recommend using whole cinnamon sticks... not crushed. This way, you can remove them before the flavor becomes overwhelming. I left them in overnight, but removed them a few hours before serving. Replaced the bananas with slices of orange and Lemon. Thought the bananas would be too soft. You could pretty much add any fruit you like and also a bit of brandy or peach schnapps, instead of rum, if you prefer.

Tejano Style Shrimp Cocktail

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
Made this 2 days in a row for different parties... doubled the recipe, added chunks of avacado both days.. 2nd day, had less time so, used ready made salsa instead of tomato sauce... I have to say, it was just as good, if not a little better. Did not have leftovers either day and numerous comments about how great it was. Both parties were large group potlucks and the Tejano Shrimp Cocktail was the most popular both times. This recipe is a real Winner!

Cucumber Crunch Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2011
It was cruchy and looked wonderful, but flavor was a bit watery... so drained off most of the watery liquid, added 1 TBLS of Sushi Vinegar (rice vinegar with sugar added) mixed and served about 2 hours later... Perfect flavor, everyone raved about how good it was.

Cuban Banana Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 1, 2011
Very easy to make, used a dairy free butter substitute and it worked just fine. Made just a small amount to test the recipe.. This will be perfect on French toast for a special brunch I'm planning. I did add a touch of vanilla before baking. Excellent flavor, although quite sweet (but that will work for the french toast)

French Orange Poached Pears (Poire Avec Orange)

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2011
Taste was nice, but pears fell apart. I could not core a pear without cutting it in half, so my pear did not look anything like the photograph. Would not try this for guests without testing it ahead of time.. I won't make this again.

White Peach Sangria

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
I had 2 small glasses and suffered the next morning with a headache... I guess it was good... it certainly tasted good... I used a very nice semi-dry white wine, peach schnapps instead of vodka and no sugar due to the sweetness of th schnapps. Everything else as directed by the recipe. Ate quite a few peaches ... maybe that caused the headache... they were soaked in schnapps and wine.. Will try this one again... maybe I'll just have one glass next time.

Honey Baked Chicken II

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2011
I saw this recipe and thought "it can't be that good, It's just chicken...." Well, it is! This is a perfect Gluten Free, Dairy Free (if you use a butter substitute) meal that will please the entire family. My butcher cut up a whole chicken for me and I found some wonderful local honey. I cut the butter amount down, taking advice from previous reviews, used a Honey Dijon mustard, green curry paste (don't have curry powder), no salt was necessary. Baked at 350 for 30 min and 375 for 30 more min. I even threw in a sliced onion.. everything came out carmelized beautifully and delicious. I served the chicken with Jasmine Rice and fresh corn on the cob (baked the last 20 min.with some sauce brushed on, then rolled in foil)

Sweet Grilled Corn

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
Wonderful recipe.. Made a few changes that works great for someone with a dairy allergy. I used a combination of olive oil and non dairy butter substitute with fresh herbs. Basted the corn and wrapped in foil about 2 hours before grilling.. this gave the corn time to absorb the flavors. Will definately make this again. May even try some other herbs or adjust flavors, just for a change...

Mexican Baked Fish

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
Made this (Gluten Free) tonight with Halibut, It was wonderful...my DH had 3 servings and cleaned the baking dish. I wasn't much on measuring, cut the Halibut filet in 3 pieces, spread a thin layer of chunky spicy salsa over the top, threw in a couple handfuls of frozen corn, a bit of shredded cheese substitute (Lactose Free) and topped with about a cup of smashed tortilla chips. Baked at 400 for about 20minutes (maybe the thickness of the pieces caused it to need a bit more time) tented with foil the last 10 minutes so that the chips wouldn't brown too darkly.. My DH isn't much on avacado and I'm lactose intolerent, so no sour cream... but it didn't need anything else.. The perfect flavor, the richness of the fish and the crunch of the chips made this dish, one that I will make again and again... maybe with margaritas next time. Have made again and again.. used Halibut, Red Snapper and Rockfish...Have used a Mango/Peach Salsa with GREAT results. Cheese doesn't matter (can't really taste it) The addition of corn is a crowd pleaser. Sangria is very good with this dish.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 28, 2011
Used some of the comments from other cooks.. marinated w/soy sauce & apple juice... after sauteing onions, browning pork chops, put all in baking dish, covered with apples and sauce (w/corn starch and apple juice added for thickening)..then foil. Baked for 40 minutes at 375. removed foli, sprinkled with chopped pecans and baked another 5min. Came out wonderful. Onions and apples were a nice compliment to the pork and the sauce was not too sweet. I did double the sauce recipe.

Apple and Brown Sugar Corned Beef

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2011
Not the flavor of corned beef I've made in the past, but very good. It is a little sweet instead of a little salty. I may make it again, but only enough for one meal... everyone ate it and loved it, but no one wanted leftovers... It's good, it's interesting but, since we only do corned beef once a year.. I'll probably make it again...

Miso and Soy Chilean Sea Bass

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2010
Wonderful Flavor.. I had a nice piece of Halibut and some jumbo sea scallops... marinated them together for about six hours... baked at 400 for 3min and then broiled at higher heat for about 6min... They came out perfectly cooked. brought the leftover marinade to a simmer for about 4-5 min... wonderful sauce to serve along with fish, rice, and fresh asparagus... garnished with chive stems to look like it was served in a fancy Asian resturant.......

I had some steamed brussels sprouts...leftovers ...added them to kielbasa, onions and a little bacon after that portion was cooked.. sprouts were already cooked, so just a flash fry to warm up... delicious use of leftover sprouts..

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2010
Made this on a boat using an entire fresh wild salmon.. each side on a separate BBQ... fed 10 people who raved about the flavor... only thing I would change... cut back the oil to at least half. Sesame oil is just fine as is... other is too much and I ended up spooning it out of the mixing bowl before putting on the fish.. Highly recommend this recipe !!

Cherry Tomato Corn Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2010
Great salad base... seed your cucumbers so you don't end up with too much liquid. I used garlic infused olive oil and a touch of fresh basil and lemon juice because I didn't have lime. Fresh and tasty...

Famous Japanese Restaurant-Style Salad Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Wonderful ! Our new favorite salad dressing... keep this recipe and laminate it !! I added a small carrot to give a bit more texture... you could probably do anything you want to the basic recipe and never ruin it.

Japanese Shrimp Sauce II

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
Very good basic sauce. Mine came out even better than the one at our local Japanese Steak House. I used the advice in another review... added Ginger and a small amount of canned peaches (used a little unsweetened peach juice in lieu of water) also honey instead of sugar. Everyone raved about it and asked for the recipe... You can make this sauce your own with a few little changes....

Israeli Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2010
I followed some of the advice in other reviews and used just a little less parsley, mint and olive oil. I did use garlic infused oil, as I didn't have fresh garlic on hand.. results were the same....WONDERFUL ! Fresh, great taste... will make this again....
