Tomato Pie II

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2009
The pie cut clean! I drained the tomato all night (I used 2 canned diced tomatoes) and I brushed the pastry with an egg wash and baked it to golden brown before adding tomatoes. I already have a friend asking for the recipe!

Shrimp Lemon Pepper Linguini

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2009
The reason I gave this a low score is because the recipe calls for 1 lemon. I think the lemon I juiced is bigger & juicier. Thus the recipe turned out to be so sour. But I turned it around. I added more broth and wine (to taste) and decided to make an Alfredo out of it. Added 4 oz of crm chz and 1/2 cup of milk with a tbsp of cornstarch. Plus I substituted half of the shrimp with bay scallops. Viola! Now I made a Creamy-Lemon Seafood Linguini. I should submit that for a recipe.

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
NO doubt the BEST recipe for Banana Muffin. Like others, I've used oil instead of butter. It soooo moist! And you wouldn't miss the nuts. I'm serving it for a bridal shower I'm hosting.

Ginger Glazed Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: Mar. 25, 2009
I didn't change a thing. It's restaurant quality. I served it with steamed veggies and plain rice.

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
I served this over crustless oatmeal bread and it was a hit! I used the seedless English cucumber.

Carol's Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
I used green and red seedless grapes, added some toasted walnuts and used cheddar cheese instead. It's the recipe that I've been looking for all these years. Thanks for sharing! It's good served on butter lettuce!

Balsamic Bruschetta

Reviewed: Mar. 30, 2009
I used too much balsamic vinegar that it turned out a little darker than I would like it to be. But it was still good. I have one guest who couldn't resist going to seconds.

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2009
No one call tell it's healthy! I prefer applesauce vs banana, may be b/c the banana was not ripe enough (can't wait for it to have those little black spots). The applesauce is with cinnamon. My co-workers all loved it! Will definitely become a favorite recipe. Thanks for sharing. I think 2/3 cup of brown sugar can be lessen according to taste. I'll update next time when 1/2 cup is used. Update: 1/2 cup brown sugar is good enough. I already did the recipe 3x!

Basil Shrimp

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
The BEST marinade for shrimp! Goes well with mahi mahi too. For those who think it doesn't deserve 5 stars, you may want to try it again. Here's my suggestion. Don't use dry mustard. I used 2 tbsp stone ground (Inglehoffer) mustard, 2 tbsp lemon, 1 1/2 tbsp olive oil, 1/2 cup basil, 1lb shrimp, salt & white pepper to taste.

Chili-Lime Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Aug. 19, 2009
Great marinade but I'd like it to have more lime next time. I marinated overnight and grilled the chicken breast. It's great sliced thin on top of any salad.

Cornish Game Hens with Garlic and Rosemary

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
It was indeed very moist. Next time though I'll put more lemon in the cavity. Since I doubled the liquids, there was more than enough for gravy. I was surprised that the garlic didn't render it too garlicky (I've used like 30 cloves). I reduced the liquid and added 8 ounces of whole mushrooms. Salt & pepper to taste and thicken it a bit with cornstarch at the end of cooking. It's great over mashed potatoes!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
It was good but may be next time I'd like to see how the original recipe of 6 eggs taste & looks like. I used 10 -12 eggs as what others commented. I've baked it twice already & will be baking it for a brunch in the coming week. You can say it was a hit. I'll update this review then.

Mouth-Watering Stuffed Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
The best! It's better eaten fresh from the oven. Like others, I added 1/4 cup bread crumbs (in my case panko) to the cream cheese. Then I pressed the stuffed mushroom unto real bacon bits and then to a plate of panko. It gave a bit of crunch and it browns well. No need for oil spray. The bacon bits and panko adheres easily to the cream cheese mixture. Looks pretty!

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2009
It's the prettiest lasagna I've ever made. For taste, I think I'm gonna double the tomato paste next time. The flavour is not robust for my liking. Seems like something is missing. I've followed the recipe exactly. May be add a little zing to it next time. I'll update when that happens.

Artichoke & Spinach Dip Restaurant Style

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
A hit at the party. You really have to use the REFRIGERATED Alfreodo sauce. I even chose the "light"version. And use 2 cups of mozzorella to get that 6 inches-string-effect. Make sure the artichoke is in "water". Some brined artichoke brands are too salty and it will ruin this recipe. Some commented on using half of the spinach. I don't think so. And use the whole block (8 oz) of cream cheese.

Foolproof Rib Roast

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
10 stars! I was skeptical with the minimal ingredients & the cooking instructions but really amazed how great it turned out. I sprinkled fresh rosemary for aroma. It's IMPORTANT to have a meat thermometer. For the price of the meat, it's worth the purchase since the meat comes in different weights. The final cooking time really depends on the thermometer readout. Medium-well is 145F. I'm thinking of doing it again for New Year's eve.

Pan-Fried Asparagus

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
The BEST asparagus yet! I think the garlic made the difference. A little too much butter & olive oil though. I served it with the Foolproof Rib Roast from this site.
