Lemon Asparagus Risotto

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2014
Good, straightforward risotto recipe! I don't think it's necessary to toast the risotto for 5 mins and then wait another 5 for the wine (I did 1-2 mins each), but other than that, I made exactly as-is. Added shrimp. Great thing about this recipe is that you can easily customize to use any other vegetable or meat additions.

Coconut Shrimp I

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
Made for our neighborhood block party and it was eaten up! I used Costco large tail-on pre-cooked shrimp. I specifically bought the cooked shrimp because I know coconut can burn - this way, I didn't have to worry about the shrimp not being cooked through. Pan-fried in canola oil instead of deep-frying. The only challenge was the coconut would sometimes burn if I didn't time it perfectly, but because I'd packed it so full of coconut, some of the coconut/batter wasn't quite cooked at the same time. It's an art, for sure!! My dipping sauce was apricot jam with horseradish to taste (not a fan of marmalade). I'm sure I'll make this again.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2013
Great recipe! I made chicken breasts for dinner. Using others' suggestions: Doubled the sauce, added 2 more garlic clove, 1t fresh ginger, substituted brown sugar for the white, used low-sodium soy sauce. YUM! We'll be having this again.

Baked Salmon Fillets Dijon

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2013
So easy and yummy! I eyeballed everything - a nice thick layer of stone-ground mustard, coated with panko. I only had plain panko, so I added a seasoning mix that had pepper, garlic, onion, etc...then drizzled olive oil over the top. Healthier than butter and just as tasty. Served with fresh asparagus. Fantastic weeknight meal!

Company Couscous

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2012
Great way to dress up couscous! You can, of course, substitute veggies willy-nilly on this one if you like! I used heirloom tomatoes, red pepper, and fresh basil. I didn't even bake it (just sauteed everything, mixed with couscous, and grated fresh parm-reg over top). Totally forgot about the balsamic but I bet that would have given it a great tang. Next time!

"Zuccotto" Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
AMAZING! The most work-intensive cupcakes, but so many levels of flavor and experience, they were well worth it. Honestly, if you are short an ingredient on this one, don't sweat it - so much going on that they can take it. The family absolutely loved that every time they took a bite was another surprise. PS - This recipe makes way more frosting than you need, unless you pile it on high enough to make a 2-story cupcake!

Grilled Fish Tacos with Chipotle-Lime Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 19, 2012
Fantastic! We love grilled fish tacos and these were as good as anything in a restaurant. I bake the fish in the oven rather than grilling. Warning: the adobo is very spicy! Start with less...taste and add to the sour cream to your preferred spice level. I used about a third of the recommended adobo (I guess we are spice wimps!).

Rum-Spiked Horchata

Reviewed: May 6, 2012
Hard to add anything new here, but truly a great horchata recipe. Family (who have had many a bad, and sometimes a good horchata) raved about it, asked for the recipe, can't wait for the next Cinco de Mayo, etc, etc. I let it stand for 4 hours on the second soaking, then mixed everything and refrigerated overnight. No rum needed! Delish!

Butternut Squash Soup with a Kick

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2012
Fantastic. I'm sure you can tweak it to your own preferences, but it's just perfect as-is. This was my inaugural use of the immersion blender I received for Christmas, and it was well worth it!

Roasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2011
Made as is, but I popped the bread in the oven at 350 for 5 min to get them toasty. Be sure to watch the bread when broiling - it can burn quick!

Tangy Slow Cooker Pork Roast

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2011
I hate when people give 5 stars and then rewrite the recipe, but I'm going to do just that now. :) I'm sure it's good as is, but I knew I'd like some of the changes others had suggested based on my personal preferences. I used a 1.5 lb tenderloin, but still increased the sauce ingredients, so it would be sure to be flavorful and moist: 1.5C water, 1/3C sugar (that was more than enough), 5T balsamic vinegar, 2T worchestire sauce, 1/2t salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Also added carrots and small red potatoes to the mix and cooked on low for just over 5 hours. I was home, so I flipped the loin once during cooking so everything was juicy!

Bacon Wrapped Dates Stuffed with Blue Cheese

Reviewed: Jul. 30, 2011
A huge hit at a party today! I have nothing to add to these reviews, other than I used ricotta and slivered almonds instead of bleu cheese. I'm sure this would be delicious whatever cheese/nut combo you choose to stuff with!

Broiled Scallops

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
I made as one other reviewer suggested - seared in the butter/garlic sauce (my oven was in use for another dish, so I could not broil). Delish! Served over the asparagus risotto recipe, also on this site.

Risotto with Asparagus

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2011
A great, simple risotto! Be aware, have extra broth ready to go! I needed about 50% more broth than it called for and it took me about 45 min to cook it. I served scallops over top that had been seared over butter. A Valentine's Day hit for the hubby!

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
As many others did, I omitted the flour. Delicious! I may add some red wine to the sauce next time. You cannot add too many mushrooms!

Fish Tacos with Honey-Cumin Cilantro Slaw and Chipotle Mayo

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2009
I love grilled fish tacos - so I omitted the breading, but still slathered in the lime/honey/cumin sauce as it grilled on the stove. As someone else suggested, I used jicama and carrots rather than traditional coleslaw, and omitted the peppers in favor of just using more of the adobo sauce for flavor...I was being lazy about pulling out the food processor. This way, I could just mix the mayo with the sauce. A great combination of unusual flavors!! I'm excited to have a fish taco recipe to make at home!

Tex-Mex Burger with Cajun Mayo

Reviewed: May 31, 2009
My husband called this "the best burger he's ever had!" I'm thrilled to have a go-to burger recipe. I did make a few modifications just to personalize it to our tastes...added diced mushrooms, used soy instead of worcestershire, and used ground turkey rather than beef.

Corned Beef and Cabbage

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2009
A taste of the old country! Just like my Polish grandmother never used to make. :) We prepared everything the night before (cut up the veggies, etc) and then just assembled it in the crock in the morning. Like other reviewers, I put the corned beef in the bottom of the crock (it was already seasoned in the package when I bought it, which was nice - the beef is already marinating in the spices to impart some flavor!) Added water mixture plus some extra water to cover the beef, added veggies, and then just a bit more water to ensure the beef was covered. On low for 9 hours (cold from the fridge), and then left it warming for 2 more hours until we were ready to eat! Perfectly done. Delish.
