Cashew Chicken with Water Chestnuts

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2011
Perfect! I LOVED the extra flavor the hot sauce added even though I thought it sounded odd at first. I will admit that I used much more than the recipe called for but only out of personal preference. This is very tasty and one I will most definitely make again. Thank you Tricia!

Ma Po Tofu

Reviewed: May 31, 2011
This was my first time buying/trying tofu and I went into not expecting to like it but was desperately wanting to try it. Turns out, I don't like tofu but I refuse to give this a low rating just because I didn't end up liking the main ingredient. IF you like tofu and spicy, I think you will love this dish. I agree with other reviewers in the fact that you need to use extra firm. I used fresh snap peas instead of frozen regular peas and they were excellent in this. Even though tofu ended up not being our thing (taste like what band-aids smell like to me) this was an excellent recipe and one I highly recommend if you like tofu.

Pickled Veggie Salad

Reviewed: May 30, 2011
I am tickled pink to be the first reviewer. I have tried a bunch of pickled salads on this site including slaws, cucumber salads, etc. and this one is by far my favorite. The only real change I made is that I used sugar instead of the artificial sweetener because I didn't have any but we don't like things overly sweet so it worked out good for us. I left out the optional yellow bell because hubby doesn't like them and for the optional white sliced onion I used a red that had already been chopped and needed used. I served it over a bed of baby spinach leaves and it was the perfect salad. So light and crunchy and the flavor combo was excellent. Thank you Jarrie!

Mexican-Style Spaghetti and Meatballs

Reviewed: May 29, 2011
I made this exactly as written and garnished with cilantro and loved it. I could not find guajillo powder but I did find whole dried guajillo chile's in my Hispanic section. Before tossing them in my old coffee grinder for powder I sliced them open and removed the seeds. I decided to dig a hole and toss the seeds in my garden a couple of weeks ago and I have a couple dozen pepper plants coming up. Not sure what will become of them but it was fun. This Mexican twist was a nice change from your every day spaghetti. Thanks for sharing!

Beer Pizza

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
I went with Pattycakes suggestion and used some Italian sausage and then put my pepperoni on top. I added some black olives too but just because I love them and feel they make every pizza better. My sauce ended up a bit runny BUT that was probably due to the extra grease I added. This was my first time to make a pizza from scratch and I was thrilled with the results.

The Perfect Rib Eye Marinade

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
As written I can only give this a 3. Cut the vinegar in half and you have yourself a decent marinade.

Garlic Lime Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
Pretty time consuming and a bit hard to work with but the end results were very tasty. I didn't have any at the time but the avocado would have been a very nice addition. Next time!

Apple-Strawberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
The dressing was a little sweet for my liking but that is an easy fix and all in all it was a great recipe. I loved the color it brought to my table.

Pork Tenderloin Marinade

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
I have used this on both tenderloin and ribs and it always comes out nice and tender. If you are not a fan of the liquid smoke then you will not like it because it is pretty stout in this recipe.

Strawberries and Wine

Reviewed: May 23, 2011
I've made this with both white and red wine and they are both equally good. A sweeter wine is better in my opinion.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: May 16, 2011
Charley said venison could be used and so venison it was. I followed the recipe exactly and had wonderful results. Garnish with jalapeno, onions, cilantro, sour cream, and a squirt of lime and you have yourself a party. The only thing I might do differently next time is add some cumin in the last 2 hours of cooking but only because I love the flavor in my tacos.

Chinese-Style Baby Bok Choy with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I have never seen potato starch so I used corn starch instead. I doubled the sauce but only because I added shrimp to the mix to make it a more hearty meal. We do not have baby bok choy in my neck of the woods so I used regular but I can only imagine how much better this would have been with it. Wonderful recipe and one I will make often. Thank you!

Chicken Long Rice Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I used mung bean noodles because that is all I could find and it paired perfectly with my Kalua Pig. I drizzled a couple of drops of sesame oil in my leftover the next day and that was good as well.

Kalua Pig in a Slow Cooker

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I have made this numerous times now but always forget to leave a review. I am still completely dumbfounded over this recipe. It is ridiculously easy and I still have no idea how it is possible to get such great flavorful and tender meat out of something with so few ingredients and insanely simple. 5 stars all the way!

Tasty Green Beans

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I scaled the recipe in half, used butter instead of margarine, and broth in place of the bouillon/water and this worked great for us.

Lemon Sauce for Salmon Patties

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I made as written for my salmon patties but ended up having to add garlic, dill, and more cayenne to kick up the flavor.

Oregon Salmon Patties

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
The one change that I knew I was going to have to make up front was veggie oil instead of shortening but that is it. As written this wouldn't have worked too good and that was well before my one change took place. The mix itself is too wet to start with before adding the 3/4 cup of reserved salmon liquid. I recommend leaving the reserve out altogether. There was also way too much beaten egg leftover so I recommend you start with one. The fresh parsley and mustard was excellent but I think I will even step it up a notch next time by adding a little Old Bay to the mix. It seems to need a bit of tweaking but only minor.

Guadalajara Soup

Reviewed: May 14, 2011
I used ham and a lot more cilantro than the recipe called for but only due to personal preference. This was a very satisfying soup but I do think toppers are a must to bring out all of the flavors. I might even try some lime next time.
