Brandied Orange and Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This is a great cranberry sauce. I don't use grated zest. Instead I use a vegetable peeler to slice some of the orange peel into long strips. After boiling in step 1, I cut/chop some of the orange peel into small pieces. I discard the extra peel. I don't measure my cranberries. I just use 1 whole bag of fresh cranberries. In step 3, I boil for a lot longer (15 mins??). I like my cranberry sauce to be very thick. I usually use an orange flavored brandy.

Vegetable Dip

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
Mmmmm. This was yummy. It's not the common vegetable dip that is typically served. I like it because it's "something different". It went very well with red peppers.

Artichoke Rice Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This was a different, but good. It's a good change from typical BBQ/potluck salads. I used red pepper instead of the green pepper.

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
This was an interesting change from the typical cucumber salads. I don't like it too sweet, so I cut down on the sugar. I didn't have fresh ginger, so I used dried/ground ginger instead.

Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
I get lots of compliments when I make this salad. It's very tasty. I found it tastes better when you make it in advance and let the flavors mix overnight. I also make more (about double) "dressing" than the recipe calls for. I found it a little bit of a pain to cook the potatoes, but I don't usually make potato salads. So, no strikes against the recipe. It is worth the effort though, since it tastes so good.

Texas Slaw

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
As others have said, this is not your typical coleslaw. This is very different and tasty. I love cilantro and this is yet another dish that I can enjoy it in. We've nicknamed this "Cowboy Coleslaw" in my house.

Mom's Seafood Pasta Salad for a Crowd

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2008
This is a great recipe. People frequently ask me to make this salad. And it's fairly easy to make too. I normally use 1/2 lb of salad shrimp (from the frozen section) instead of the canned shrimp. Sometimes I'll add a little bit of Old Bay seasoning. One time I did not green onions so I substituted chopped sweet onion, and it did not turn out as well. Stick with the green onion. Also, when I mix the ingredients, I start by combining the mayo and the tuna at the bottom of the bowl so that I can mix it well. Then I add the pasta and other ingredients.
