World's Best Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
This took a while to put all together, but it was worth it. Followed the advice of some of the people here...dropped the sugar to 1/3 cup, upped the corn startch to 2 tsp. Added some Bacon, and some Serrano chillis as well that I deseeded and diced, also added relish, and celery seeds. Also used red potatoes instead. Flat out best potato salad that I have ever tried (and the first one I had ever tried making!). Will be made again, and again, and again!

Tzatziki Sauce I

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
Very good. I love Tzatziki sauce, and this one tries to do a good job at it. I made a couple mods that a few other users did as well. Used Greek Yogurt instead. Used 1 clove garlic (...well, 1.5 based on the size of the clove :P) 1 cuke skinned, seeded, grated, and drained) Has come out amazing. Will work well with the Kebab recipe I"m making this weekend :)

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
This was my first time making Risotto, so I was a bit nervous about the whole thing, as Risotto has kind of this air of "mystique" around it (I blame Gordon Ramsay and Hell's Kitchen for all of my fears. "YOU CAN'T EVEN COOK A #$(&*ING RISOTTO!!!"). The recipe was spot on, and turned out fantastic! When I taste tested it after putting it all together, I was just shocked at how good it was (and really how easy it was to put together). i'm not sure how much mushroom I put in there. I figured the 2lbs of mushrrom were a bit overkill, so I just used by my definition "a lot". and it turned out really well. This recipe can be customized a ton. I'm really excited to try making different variations of it now :). Will definently start adding a bit of garic to the shallots when starting off the risotto. As stated, and as those of you who are going to try it already understand: You need to be focused on the risotto. Not the book you're reading, or the news report that's on...stay focused on the dish. Having another set of hands around will help.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Mar. 20, 2009
4.5/5. Very tasty, and easy to do. Subbed out pickled ginger for a nub of fresh ginger. put in a 1/2 cup of Hoisen instead of 1/4. Added some grated Carrot as well. Turned out wonderful!! I screwed up and mixed in the green onion with the white onion when cooking the sauce. I'll correct that next time, but it certainly didn't spoil anything. People were really impressed that you could make soemthing that is clearly restaurant quality at home! Well done. Will make it again!

Cucumber Soup I

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2009
Very easy recipe, and the soup came out delicious. I did omit the cream of wheat (...forgot to pick some up :-/), and used a good handful of dill instead of taragon. Stored it in the fridge and served cold. Will definently be making it again!

Cajun Chicken and Sausage Gumbo

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2009
This is the first attempt I've had at making a gumbo (or a roux for that matter!). After looking up recipe after recipe, this one looked simple, straight forward, and based on just ingrediants and reviews sounded flat out tasty. And wow, what a treat! The only real modifications I made to this was adding some Okra that I had chopped up and sauteed for a few minutes into the dish when I had about 20 min left to go on it (When I put on the rice). The auroma of the dish was just everywhere, and it was such a pleasant and authentic thing. My friend who I had invited over to help "Test" this recpie said he could smell something good cooking inside even outside my front door. Hours after it started, we finally ate...and you could tell that this was a "Food of love" kind of thing. It turned out just the right consistancy with loads of sausage and chicken, and a robust flavor that can only be associated with Lousiana. It's easy to do, and absolutely delicious! And those hours of waiting are worth it at the end when you have a bite and say to yourself "I'd pay top dollar at a restaurant for this"
