Caldo Verde (Portuguese Green Soup)

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2004
Excellent. Used smoked Polish sausage, instead of linguica, which I'll be sure to try next time. Still turned out wonderfully. Thanks.

Wonderful Fried Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2004
Excellent recipe! My husband and I make these regularly. They don't lack zip at all if you use spicy salsa (try Green Mountain Gringo Hot) and a healthy dousing of lime juice.

Tuna Noodle Casserole II

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2008
Very good recipe as is. Second time, doubled the tuna, used sharp cheddar, saltines on top, and substituted 1 cup regular milk for the evaporated.

Tuna Curry in a Hurry

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2004
Surprisingly good combination. I used half the butter (1T) and sour cream (1/2c) as well as twice the curry powder (2t). Thanks, Sara.

Old Fashioned Prune Cake

Reviewed: May 21, 2008
Very yummy cake. I did not have nuts to put into this cake, so I reduced the sugar in both the cake and the glaze by 1/2 cup. Perfectly sweet this way. The only problem I had was that I overheated the glaze and the buttermilk curdled, so I strained it and used it anyway. I think that keeping the heat very low and constantly stiring the glaze would have prevented this from happening.

Grilled Salmon I

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2004
Delicious! This is the best salmon we've ever cooked at home. We used a 1 lb salmon steak and substituted lemon juice and ground pepper for the lemon pepper. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

Steak Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
Delicious! We make this all the time. Works well with Ribeye as well. Good with leftover steak warmed in the oven.

Pumpkin Maple Pie Supreme

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
I tested this recipe before making it for our Thanksgiving gathering. I loved it the way it is written (except for using canned pumpkin), but based upon a lot of feedback from others, I reduced both the ginger and nutmeg to 1/2 t. and reduced the brown sugar to 1/2 cup. With those minor adjustments, most people who tried it on Thanksgiving said it was the best pumpkin pie ever! Thanks!

Salmon in Lemon-Dill Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
Very good flavor. Would probably reduce butter next time and perhaps use fresh herbs, but overall this is a keeper.

These are my favorite cookies ever. If I could give this recipe more stars, I would. Perfect texture. Perfect sweetness. Perfect all around. Thanks.

Brussels Sprouts in Mustard Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2004
I really, really wanted to like this. Perhaps I did something wrong. The sauce was very pastey.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2009
Delicious!! Like other reviewers, I cut the sugar to 2 cups. I also substituted half whole wheat pastry flour and added 1/4 c buttermilk. What a perfect summertime treat! Thanks.

Best Ever Banana Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 21, 2008
Truly the best banana bread I've ever made. My only alteration was to cut the sugar by 1/4 cup. Yum.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2004
Flavor is pretty good, but in my opinion, needs more pumpkin and spices. Thanks anyway.
