Lemongrass Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2011
I was really looking forward to this and was sadly disappointed. I followed the directions other than using 1 tbsp dried lemongrass instead of the fresh because that's what I had. The texture was fine (I added about 1 cup extra water per other reviews) but the taste was pretty bad. It somehow had a bitter undertaste.

Slow Cooker Tapioca Pudding

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
Incredible! I'm not a tapioca expert; in fact I've made it only twice (once using the recipe on the back of the tapioca bag, and once using this one). This is SO easy and SO delicious! Much better than the first recipe I tried. Since the recipe doesn't specify what kind of milk to use, I assumed whole (which I did not have on hand) so I substituted 3 cups skim and 1 cup 1/2 'n 1/2. I put it into a small crock pot (which was filled to the top with this recipe) and cooked it on high for 2 hours and decided it was almost done. I turned it off after 2 1/2 hours and tasted. OMG! I then added 1 tsp of vanilla. I have to say both versions tasted amazing - with and without the vanilla. I found that it needed to be stirred more often than every 30 minutes as the cooking time neared the end - more like every 10-15 minutes. Also, I made sure the eggs were well beaten, added the sugar and mixed well, then added the milk and mixed well again before adding the tapioca. Mixing with a whisk all the way thru the cooking seemed to be the best way (to me) to keep the tapioca pearls incorporated evenly.

End of the Line Ham Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
I made this tonight for the first time, but made modifications to the original recipe. I think the original would have rated a 3 due to some blandness of flavor. With my modifications, I give it a 4-5. I used a V-slicer on the 'fine' setting to slice the potatoes & onions. I sauteed the onions until golden brown, then added the soup & milk and brought it to a simmer. Then I added 1 small crown of broccoli chopped fine (using V-slicer on stems) & simmered for 5 min. I layered the sauce, potatoes, & ham in a glass casserole dish (10" across) 'lasagna style' with 4 oz shredded pepper-jack cheese (there were 3 layers each of potatoes, ham, sauce & cheese). Baked as directed. Topped at the end with 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs mixed with 1 tbsp melted butter & 1/4 cup Parmesan. It turned out wonderfully; lots of flavor & fully cooked.

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Jan. 12, 2009
I found this recipe to be a bit heavy on the lemon and garlic. I made it with the lemon as listed, but bumped the garlic to 2 cloves per some other review I'd read. It's too much. I also sauteed the garlic in the butter for a couple minutes before adding the lemon juice & parsley, then pouring it over the fish. I think halving the lemon & garlic would be more appropriate for the delicacy of a fish like tilapia - especially if you're using very thin filets like the ones I had (the ones that come in 4 oz portions vacuum sealed in plastic). I'll definitely try this again with less 'oompf'. I may have to find some other liquid to make up for the decreased lemon juice. Maybe white wine or water? Maybe use lemon zest instead of lemon juice? Hmmm...

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2008
I had high expectations for this based on all the glowing reviews. Wow-ee; was this STRONG on tomato flavor (not quite what I was looking for). It was also pretty acidic. I tried to cut the acidity with some brown sugar, which helped only marginally. Adding parmesan & sour cream to individual servings also helped some. I don't think I'll make this one again. I have a recipe similar to this with all the vegetables etc, but without the tomatoes. I like that one much better.
