Blueberry Loaf Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
This is a great simple recipe. The loaf is very cake like. The best thing about it is that is not overly sweet. I did not use the topping for this recipe. Kudos to the chef; I would definitely make this again.

Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2009
This was a great recipe. Entire office loved it. I made 4 servings and it comfortably fed 8 people. I made some of the suggested changes. 3/4 cup brown rice in 2 cups chicken stock. I used 3/4 lbs ground beef, I used the 1.5 tsp of curry instead of ingredients 4-6, I used a couple shakes of red pepper flakes instead of the cayenne, I used spinach chiffonade instead of parsley. I used an entire bunch of cilantro. I also served it on flat bread with a topping of greek yogurt about 8 oz. mixed with the juice of one lime. Super good. and easy to make, except for all the darn time to cook the rice. Next time I'll use a faster cooking rice.

Apricot Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2011
This is a great recipe. I used 1.5 lbs of chicken and cooked it an extra four minutes. I added 1/2 a sweet onion chopped and a large green bell pepper. I used the sherry and the flavor was nice and light. I had almonds and just added them after it cooled as needed for each serving. Fresh almonds are just as sweet as cashews and I did not want the extra salt. Using fully salted Kikoman soy had enough salt for me. It is a very good and quick recipe and will definitely make it again.

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2011
A winner at the cake walk. Mouths were drooling. Very easy to make, but a bit expensive. Also very fruit filled and definitley one of the better comfort foods out there. Thanks for a great recipe that I will definitely make for special people.

Jewish Apple Cake I

This is my absolute favorite cake. I always have to add more time. Usually 15-20 minutes.

Ashley's African Peanut Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2011
I made this for the office lunch club and it received thumbs up from five people. One thing I would caution is to make sure you have a large crock pot, or only use 3 cups of broth (or cook and reverse baste into another pot and then replace the delish liquid at the end) I think my pot is only 5 qt. But I made the recipe as noted, except for cooking the rice on the side. I would have added a bit more cayenne and red pepper flakes as it was a mild spice, not the kind of spicey people generally enjoy in New Orleans. But what a decadent flavor for a rather healthy meal.

Garlicky Quinoa and Garbanzo Bean Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2012
This was a huge hit with the lunch club. I left out the tarragon, because I did not have any on hand. I did the recipe as described and it was good for five people.

Vickie's Beer Bread

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2013
I'v made this recipe many times and it is a hit. After pouring the batter in the pan draw a line down the top with a knife before pouring on the butter.

I made the meatballs only to put in pita breads with spinach and a sauce of plain yogurt and lemon juice. This recipe rocks! Thanks Chef John!

Lemon Ice-Box Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
I rated it 4 stars because 12 oz of whipped cream is way too much. I think it could have been made with 8 oz and been great. Then again, I'm not a big fan of icing in general, but it is necessary for this cake. I made it exactly according to directions and everyone loved it. I left it in the frig for two full days after making it and it was moist and lemony and hit the spot on a warm day in New Orleans.

Pesto Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
I used the greens from the holly grove market, thai basil and some Asian cooking green from Mary Queen of Vietnam. I used sunflower seeds from an airport vendor and the jared garlic. Excellent flavor and the proportion is perfect. I read somewhere about puting some in an ice cube tray and freezing for later use. We'll see if that works. It made a little over 2 cups. You may want to half the recipe.

Sausage Balls

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2012
they were dry but everyone loved them. I served them with apple butter, which I think really made the dish. I also made these with vegan sausage and they were pretty good too. I would not eat them with out the apple butter.

A little dry. I used jimmy dean sausage in one batch and vegetarian in the other. These are best served up with some apple butter. YUMMMY.
