Strawberry Meringue Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2010
I'm giving this recipe 5 stars because it sounds amazing/exactly what I was looking for!! I was looking for a cake for my daughter's 3rd birthday, and fresh strawberries were a requirement because her b-day is in June, and we are going strawberry picking right before her birthday. As a recommendation for the meringue to keep it from falling, once the meringue is done baking, turn off the oven and let the cakes sit in the oven overnight if possible. This way the meringue will dry out and you will get a crunchy meringue layer. Yummy!! I'm really looking forward to making this cake!

Blitz Puff Pastry

Reviewed: Jun. 9, 2010
Thanks for posting this recipe, I misplaced the copy I received in culinary school. I hate the ingredients in the store bought stuff, and this method of making puff pastry is great for making at home! I'm planning on using it for a roasted tomato tart with cheve! Yummy!

Puttanesca I

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2009
This recipe was wonderful! I unintentionally made some changes to it, because I made it from memory, so I forgot to add the chili flacks, and didn't add tomato paste, but I did add a little diced purple onion to it. I also ended up using a whole can of anchovies, which I melted in the oil, garlic, and onion mixture, because I was worried it might taste to fishy for my fiance if I just added them in with the tomatoes. Wonderful, fast, simple recipe. I will be adding this our regular repertoire of recipes. :)

Adrienne's Tom Ka Gai

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
I have to write a review based on the first reviewer who writes about making real tom ka gai. I have to say this was the first tom ka gai recipe I made a long time ago. Out of curiosity I researched it online and found this recipe wasn't very authentic, but I REALLY love it. Here are the changes I have made to make it a little more authentic, but you still keep the essence of a GREAT receipe I use less water and more coconut milk, usually 4 cans. I add kefir lime leaves. I don't use galanga, I use ginger, but this is a personal preference. I don't care for galaga, but I love ginger. I also use baby bok choy instead of regular, another personal preference. Also, be liberal with the spices, and the fish sauce! I usually will do rounded measurements of them spices. I keep the rest of the ingrediants the same, also I usually double the recipe, and the amounts I've given are based on that. I have had this soup at the best Thai restaurant in the city I live in, and I think that the alterations I have made to this recipe make min better. P.S. This is my FAVORITE soup!!!

Chicken and Corn Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2009
This was a great base recipe. I did make changes, because I always change recipes to suit my tastes. I used boneless/skinless chicken thighs and just simmered then in the salsa for a couple hours and i was able to pull them apart with just the spoon I was using to stir them every once in a while. I also used black beans instead of pinto, and I added the juice of one lime and fresh cilantro right before serving, and these additions made it really good. We served it with sour cream,and shredded cheddar cheese. With these changes. Yum!

Juicy Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2009
This chicken was wonderful. Very juicy and very flavorful. The only things I did differently was, I put garlic powder and onion powder on my chicken, and I basted my chicken with the juices 3 times during the cooking time. Also, I cook my chicken breast side down it makes for MUCH juicer breast meat!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
These cookies were Awesome!! My mom even asked for the recipe. Next time I make them I'm going to kick them up a notch and use really good ingredients like really good organic pasture butter, good (probably organic) brown and a more raw form of sugar, and better chocolate chips. To see if they can turn out even better then they already were.
