Jalapeno Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2011
This recipe is a great way to use up jalapenos! We tripled the recipe, but only used 20 seeded jalapenos - it was still really hot! We just put all the peppers and tomatoes right on a charcoal grill and flipped them around until they were dark all over. We skinned the tomatoes but not the jalapenos. I do think this recipe could use more garlic - we doubled the garlic and roasted it, but still could have used more. I used yellow onions, because that's all we had on hand. My husband thinks this is the best salsa he's ever had, and it was so easy to make in the food processor!

Thai Chicken Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Feb. 16, 2009
I made these for a dinner party and everyone loved them! I split the marinade in two and used half (pre-cooked, frozen) shrimp and half chicken. I also used arugula instead of watercress (due to availability) - I only needed 5 oz, not a whole pound! I kept everything else the same and prepared it exactly as instructed. I was doubtful it was going to all come together, but they surprised me! Just do what was the recipe says, wrap em tight, and dip away! I made everyone wrap their own for fun:-) Will DEFINITELY make again!

Emerald Green Risotto

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
My partner and I both thought this was delicious! It turned out great even though this was my first time making risotto. I used a soup pot and made a double batch. This increased the cooking time by 15 minutes. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly! I love feta but would be interested to try Parmesan. The pea pods and beans were not as tender as the broccoli and zucchini so I could see steaming them a bit. They were perfect for us! Will definitely make again.

Minnesota Wild Rice Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
I brought this to a party and it was quite popular - I am also from MN so wild rice is plentiful! I used less chicken and less celery (only because I did not buy enough) and it was great. I used homemade gingered cranberry chutney which worked well. Make sure to rinse the wild rice well before cooking and you only need 3.5 cups of water to boil it in. Next time I will substitute plain nonfat yogurt for some of the mayonnaise just to try something different. This recipe has lots of great flavors and a pretty presentation!

Gingered Cranberry Chutney

Reviewed: Jan. 25, 2009
This was very good even though I messed it up! I could not get the liquid to boil down! It just started foaming eventually and I just added the fruit. Although mine was perhaps a tad soupy, the flavors were great! Everyone liked pear and cranberry combination. Note to others: do not substitute fresh ginger for ground ginger. You will not get the flavor. (I’m not sure why it says “Discard gingerroot” in the directions. Maybe you could throw some in beginning). Overall, beautiful presentation, great flavors! I will try it again!

Company Cheesecake

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
I have made many cheesecakes and this one was great! I followed the recipes exactly. Mine did not crack with a water bath during baking and a slow temperature transition. This is my new basic cheesecake recipe!

Spinach Muenster Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2011
This turned out great! I have made it as is and with substitutions. Now, I always double the eggs and decrease the cream cheese. I think the cheese on top is unnecessary. A jar of artichokes in place of some of the spinach is wonderful! Looks and tastes professional.

Bratwurst, Potato and Cabbage Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 21, 2010
This is a great soup! It has a very nice consistency and flavor. Easy to make and proud to serve. I used sweet Italian sausage, which I didn't like. We'll go regular or spicy next time. Thank you for the recipe!

Strawberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2009
I mistakenly made this in an 11" pan and it even turned out! DELICIOUS! Beautiful presentation!

Creole Catfish Fillets

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2008
My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe! I also used perch instead of catfish and it worked well. I did not have a grill bag so I just used tin foil. It would have fallen apart on the charcoal grill. It was very juicy and flavorful! I liked the sauce better than tartar sauce (and I happen to like tartar sauce). I suggest making more than 4 oz of fish per person...My husband and I ate 8 oz each and it was perfect!

Marinated Venison Steaks

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2012
My husband and I loved this marinade! I followed the recipe exactly (except olive oil instead of vegetable). It took more like 6 minutes on each side to get them medium for us - maybe that's because we used a glass pan rather than metal? This recipe made enough marinade for our steaks and some extra for our baked potatoes. We will be making this again soon!

The Sarge's Goetta - German Breakfast Treat

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
Overall, we really enjoyed this! Step 1-3 went off without a hitch. I ended up putting the meat + onion in my food processor because I couldn't get the mixture uniform with hand mixing. When it came time to slice and fry up, they just fell apart into hash. I tried different pans, different oil/fats, and different levels of thickness. They just came apart every time - the hash was yummy though! I ended up putting the slices on a sprayed cookie sheet in a 375 degree onion for 20+ minutes. They came out great - nice and crispy. I didn't even need to flip them. Very tasty recipe - thank you!

Slow Cooker Chicken Marrakesh

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2013
Tastes great and was so easy! I was going to add more vegetables, but it made a pretty full crockpot. I just added some greens to give it some Superfood power. I used *almost* doubled the spices and used chicken things instead of breasts. There was plenty of liquid, so I froze half of it! This was really quite good! We ate it with quinoa and brown rice, although it would be fine alone.

Debdoozie's Blue Ribbon Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 27, 2013
It's worth the hype! This chili has it all - great texture and flavor! I swapped out some of the tomato sauce for diced tomatoes, but keep everything the same. It was the most popular chili at the cook off (and I was skeptical).

Mediterranean Grilled Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 9, 2012
My husband and I both LOVED this recipe! I followed the recipe exactly, except I only marinaded for 3 hours due to time constraints. I broiled for 4-5 minutes on each side. I'm thinking about making it in mass quantities and giving it out as Christmas presents in jars.
