Aussie Lime Pie

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2009
I'm not Australian, but this pie seemed like something I would love. The first time I made this pie, there wasn't a picture and I thought I messed up the crust since it bubbled and covered the top of the pies edges. My husband loved how the crust came out though. It was delicious! My husband said he thought it tasted gormet or like a specialty pie at some fancy restaurant. My husband hates coconut though, so I left out the flakes. I love coconut, so I imagine it would have made the pie even better.

Real N'awlins Muffuletta

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I haven't made the sandwiches yet, we will have them for dinner. But I'm rating the olive salad. I absolutely love it! I snuck a taste after mixing the ingredients and this olive salad is as close to Central Grocery's as you can get. I used a couple of jars of mixed pitted olives (kalamata, green and prune,) I grated the carrot and diced the pepperocini's, I wasn't sure what I was supose to do with the coctail onions by the recipe, so I put them in whole just to marinate the flavors, I won't put them on the sadwiches though. I also left out the canola and added a little more olive oil. Also, since the olives I used weren't stuffed with pimento's I added some separately to the mix. I used celery salt instead of celery seed since I didn't have any on hand. It makes a lot, so I'll be giving my sister a jar to take home. I never buy the jarred varieties of olive salad, because they just don't compare to what I expect. My sister and I were just talking about how much we missed the olive salad from the Central Grocery; this is a winner!

Pesto Tuna Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
Super yummy! I wanted to try this recipe badly, but didn't have pesto or basil around the house. I did have a bunch of cilantro and pine nuts, so I made up a batch of cilantro pesto. I also didn't have sun-dried tomatoes in oil, so I took my dry ones and chopped them in the food processor along with the pesto and added a bit more evoo to moisten them up. Last night I made some chipotle mayo dip for tostones, so I added that in place of the regular mayo and put in a couple of fire roasted red peppers to the tuna mix. I wish I had an avocado to top with the filling, but I'm eating it with pasta this time. YUMM! This is a winner!! Will definitely make again.

Spam on the Go

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
I found this while searching for ways to use spam and spaghetti. My husband came in while I was chopping the spam and I could see the look of disappointment at what I was making for lunch. I thought it would be bland with water, so I did use chicken stock instead and I added toasted sesame seeds. I added a dash of worsteshire sauce to make up for running out of soy sauce. I seasoned mine with red pepper flakes, since I like spice. My husband ate 2 heaping bowls and then my son came home from school and finished the leftovers. Good recipe, just a tad salty for me. Since spam is salty enough, I may use low sodium soy next time.

Easy Black Bean Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
I made this as a side for chicken sandwiches for an easy dinner. It was very good. The only changes I made were that I didn't have thyme or celery salt, so used some Italian seasoning and I also used tomato sauce and used chicken stock instead of vegetable. I used fresh lime instead of lemon and added some green onion. It was just spicy enough and I served this over some leftover rice. Very yummy! Very versatile and the bowls were all empty.

No Roll Pie Crust I

Reviewed: May 18, 2009
I've used this several times and am just getting around to rating it. I love this recipe, it's perfect and flaky for a last minute crust. The peanut oil is a must. I'm wondering how it will work with some rolled oats in the mixture.

Cheesy Eggplant Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2008
I made quite a few changes and with everything I changed it turned into more a dressing than an eggplant casserole. So I wasn't sure that I should even review it. But I think this is a great base recipe and that is something I'm always looking for. I added two cups of French bread cubed, 1/2 c. chicken stock, 2 green onions chopped, 1 celery stalk minced, more garlic for taste and a fistful of chopped parsley along with doubling the Italian seasoning. I really loved this and the eggplant reminded me of my Maw Maw's oyster dressing. So I will definitely be making this again with the addition of chopped oysters.
