Cajun Style Stuffed Peppers

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Excellent! Used hamburger instead of shrimp because I'm not a fan of the latter, and it still turned out great!

Salsa II

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2009
Good, fresh salsa recipe. Personally, I wish I hadn't followed the recommendations to cut down the jalepenos and seeds so much because it ended up not being very hot, but still good!

Chutney with Mint

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
Put this on a lemony-garlic Tilapia and it added a nice burst of freshness! Good way to use up a bunch of mint.

Country Green Beans

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2011
Tasty and easy! Recommend halving the butter at least and using a largish pan for more even cooking, but good stuff!

Mongolian Beef and Spring Onions

Reviewed: May 6, 2013
Amazing! Better than most restaurant Mongolian beef. We used a bit less sugar (about 1/2 cup) and thought it was perfectly balanced.

Not bad, but a bit unexciting.

Asian Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2010
Yummy but a bit sweet. Good as a base for something with a bit of spice, like a curry chicken.

Brandy Flamed Peppercorn Steak

Reviewed: May 23, 2010
Oh my goodness. Quite possibly the best steak I've had, certainly the best I've made. A bit of work, but it's a fun recipe and so delicious. My girlfriend who's grown up eating a lot of steak said it was one of the best she'd had too. 5 stars all the way. No idea how much the brandy does for the flavor, but it was pretty exhilarating to see a huge plume of flame engulf the microwave for a second!

Ratatouille

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2009
Delicious, with just the right amount of cheese! Better the next day after the flavors have mingled. Yum!

Tomato Barley Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 1, 2009
A bit bland, but definitely a nice fresh-tasting soup. Mixed in some sofrito and that gave it some more flavor. I'd also use more barley next time.

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
This was ok, but I used less onion soup mix than called for and still found that taste too strong, and I omitted the brown gravy and it was still plenty saucy. I also used beer instead of cola which gave it a nice flavor, but overall I found the recipe a bit disappointing.

Spiced Sweet Roasted Red Pepper Hummus

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2009
I don't think spicy hummus is really my thing, but if you do like that flavor, you'd probably really enjoy this one.

Cold Tuna Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
Wow, delicious! So light and refreshing. I usually make large batches for meals throughout the week, and even after having this many days in a row, I still looked forward to it. Minor modifications: I used about 2/3 the mayo and it still tasted great, I used whole wheat pasta which I think added a bit of complexity (not to mention health), and next time I think I'll chop some dill pickles into it.

Apricot/Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2009
My grocery store didn't have fresh cranberries, so I substituted plums instead. Definitely a different (and sweeter) taste than was intended, but it was delicious!

Paprika Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2009
Delicious, but only as leftovers when the flavors have had a chance to mingle and the sour cream flavor gets mellower. I didn't like it at first. I looked the chops entirely on the stove, adding the sauce after the first side was done.

Salmon Chowder

Reviewed: Jul. 13, 2009
I really did not like this recipe when made according to the recipe. Way too salty, thick and buttery. However, when I made it according to some of the reviewer recommendations it easily became a 5-star recipe. Nice and light, and the dill is delicious. Basically, I skipped the cheese, reduced the butter, and sprung for red sockeye canned salmon instead of pink. I'm sure fresh grilled salmon would make this even better, but if I'm gonna pay for fresh salmon, I'm not going to put it in a soup! Just my $0.02.
