Paella I

Reviewed: Feb. 14, 2010
This recipe is very good if you follow the instructions exactly. I don't like white rice, so I used basmati (Brown) rice. Since brown rice has a longer cook time, I began cooking the rice first (in 3.5 cups chicken broth, 0.5 cup wine and saffron). I added a little extra saffron since brown rice has a stronger flavor). Let the rice cook for 25 minutes, and then add the sauteed vegetables and other ingredients (except the seafood), and cook for another 20-30 minutes until rice is done.

Slow Cooker Chai

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
This recipe is very good. I added 1/2 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, a dash of fennel seeds, and a dash of anise. Also, a handy conversion is: one cinnamon stick equals 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon. It makes the house smell great!

Vicki's Hush Puppies

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2009
I used corn oil to fry these. At first my heat was set to 7 (out of 10) and the oil started smoking, and the dough blackened on the outside and was uncooked on the inside. I would suggest preheating the oil for 10 minutes on medium low setting (4 out of 10) on your stove-top, and then cooking until golden brown. I added garlic and jalepenos. I didn't have self-rising cornmeal or flower, so I added 1 tsp baking powder. They came out better than any restaurant hush puppies I have had in the South!

Blackened Salmon Fillets

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
This recipe is AMAZING. However, it filled my house with smoke! Use Peanut Oil or Corn Oil instead of butter to avoid setting off your smoke alarm. I have cooked salmon numerous ways, including the Fircracker Salmon recipe from the top 20 on this site and this recipe is the best way to cook salmon I have ever tried.

Cream of Wheat Griddlecakes

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2009
Light, fluffy and delicious pancakes. Used whole wheat flour of course, added a half cup of blueberries and used brown sugar instead of white. Seemed very nutritious.

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch

Reviewed: Mar. 11, 2009
I fried the onions/mushrooms/celery in olive oil instead of butter, and tripled the garlic. Used whole wheat pasta spirals instead of egg noodles and whole wheat flower. Also I used soy milk instead of milk. Even if you don't like those substitutions (though they tasted awesome) I would definitely recommend adding more spices than as written. I added oregano and spicey paprika and more black pepper than the recipe called for. I also used more cheese than it called for and used the canned, crunchy fried onions instead of bread crumbs.
