Sweet Chili Thai Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
I used about 2/3 cup sugar and, of course, added the cornstarch mixed with a little water. The second time I had to use a mixture of rice vinegar and cider vinegar. Both times I made it, it was a hit. Thanks for a great alternative to the bottled variety!

Beer Cheese Fondue

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2013
I just added minced garlic to the pot, but otherwise made this as instructed. It was a hit with the crowd of visitors! We will make this again and again. Thanks for a great and easy recipe!

Slow Cooker Carrot Cake Steel Cut Oats

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
I give the author much credit for ingenuity; I never would have thought of this combination, but it works! I cooked my batch on the stovetop, since my crockpot was otherwise engaged. I used a little less grated carrot and shredded them in my food processor. I also dislike using artificial sweeteners, so I substituted some honey to taste. It's very filling - of course, steel cut oats are always filling. This was a nice change from the usual. Thank you!

Old Charleston Style Shrimp and Grits

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
My doctor would have a fit about all that's bad about this recipe, and I honestly wouldn't make it often, but I sure will make it again - as I shake my fist at death. I made it very nearly as written, and it was marvelous. The flavors were well-balanced. Next time, I think I will try to reduce the fat somewhat, but do try the recipe as written once, at the very least. Thanks to the author for a spendid recipe!

Joe's Fusion Chicken Pad Thai

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2012
I made this nearly as written, and we think it's a keeper. I discovered I had no fish sauce (where did it go?), but even without it, my family and I really enjoyed the mix of flavors. We will be using this recipe again. Thank you, Joe!

Chicken and Cheddar Biscuits

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2012
I made this nearly as written, and according to my family, we have a "keeper." I did not add the peas only because I didn't have them on hand, and I did substitute lower-fat cream cheese. I subsituted 1/3 cup of the chicken broth with home made white wine because I wanted to use it up. I had chicken breasts on hand, and since we like white meat better, we would not use thighs. I think these changes were insignificant, however, to the overall flavor. This wasn't overly rich, and we liked the choices of herbs; it didn't have that "dried dressing mix" flavor of similar recipes. There wasn't too much preparation, and it was easy. I will make this again. Thanks for a great recipe!

Pumpkin Wheat Honey Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I made these using the substitutions recommended by other reviewers with one cup of pumpkin and using applesauce instead of oil, but found them to be overly dense and doughy (no matter how long I baked them). I will try them again as per the original recipe, since it looks so promising. There is no distinction between using regular whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flours, but I think I may try the pastry flour.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
Don't let the thick conistency of the batter throw you! I prepared these according to the recipe and found there was no need for any changes. They were fudgey, but not at all heavy or dense, and were somewhat light and cake-like. Thanks for a wonderful version of a chocolate cake/brownie that's even better than the one I've made for years. I couldn't bear to frost these once I tasted them; they are plenty sweet enough by themselves.

Rye Beer Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2012
I'm sure the flavor is greatly affected by the beer one chooses to use. I used a home brewed nut brown ale, and the bread was delicious. We sliced it while still warm to use for some pastrami sandwiches, and it was dense enough to hold up to the slicing, but not ovely heavy. I had not read through the recipe beforehand and didn't see that it required an overnight rest. So be forewarned that this is a two-day project. It's well worth the extra time. Thanks for a great recipe.

Beef Tenderloin Asturias

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2012
I needed a quick way to prepare some tenderloin and was thrilled to find this to try. The short ingredient list won me over, too. We have the Rogue Creamery nearby, so we had lots of blue cheese to use up. Since the flavor of the cheese is so intense, I used only about 2 oz., but found that enough to make the sauce very flavorful. I used some homemade dry Gewurztraminer, which worked beautifully. This is a keeper. Thank you for sharing it!

Healthier Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
We have wonderful peaches here in Oregon, and I planned on making my usual cobbler when I had a surplus. I'm thrilled that I tried this recipe instead, which makes a superb cobbler. We all liked the balance between the topping and fruit and that it was not cloyingly sweet. I made the recipe as directed, but used only 1 TBS brown sugar on top. This is a recipe I'll share and make over and over. Thank you!

Bacon Ranch Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
Oh, my! These disappeared so fast, I barely got a taste! I used red curry paste, since that was all I had on hand, and I feared it might not mix well with the ranch dressing flavor. It was perfect! I didn't pat the chicken dry after marinating them, but left all the marinade on. The chicken was very moist and so flavorful! They were very easy, too! Thanks for a great recipe!

Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread No-Bakes

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
The flavor was great, though I couldn't taste the Nutella very well over the flavor of the peanut butter. I'm not sure it's worth the expense of the Nutella, since its hard to discern. I may just make my old tried and true no-bake cookies from now on, which are inexpensive and fool-proof. Be sure to check that the sugar is completely dissolved. My first batch came out very grainy and no one would eat them, though I cooked them according to the recipe times.

White Texas Sheet Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2012
I've had a hard time finding a moist white cake recipe from scratch and hoped this one would be good, since I love the chocolate version of Texas sheet cake. It's a winner!! Thanks for a great recipe! I did make the cake as instructed, except I used buttermilk instead of sour cream. I topped it with my own homemade chocolate frosting to accomodate the teenage boys in the house. They had a hard time stopping themselves from eating the whole cake by themselves. I'll make this over and over.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
Thanks for a terrific recipe! It tastes and looks beautiful, making a great impression on our guests. I did cook this in an indoor rotisserie at 20 minutes per pound, which yielded such a moist, juicy chicken! The second time I made this, I rubbed the spice mixture under the skin, which flavored the meat a little more intensely. Great recipe!

Lisa's Favorite Carne Asada Marinade

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2012
Thank you, thank you, thank you for this wonderful recipe! Yes, the citrus flavors are slightly pronounced, but with the seasonings, it has a very balanced flavor. I marinated the meat overnight, and didn't pound it; I only pierced the meat thoroughly before marinating. I served this to guests, who stayed several extra hours at our house just to have the leftovers for dinner!

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
I rather feared this would be a little bland, since the ingredient list didn't look too much different from many other recipes. Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the recipe! I did change things a bit because my son doesn't care for so many seeds. I cooked about 4 cups of raspberries for the sauce and removed the seeds from all. I did add about 1 TBS homemade berry liqueur to the sauce to zip up the flavor a bit. With three teenage boys in the house, the pan was empty by bedtime, and they were looking for more. Thanks for a great and easy recipe.

Amazing Pork Tenderloin in the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2012
I only had white wine in the house, since we can't drink reds, so the flavor is surely a bit different. Even with using the white wine substitution, this was tasty and easy. Love those crock pot recipes!

Cherry Nut Cake I

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
I was frankly dissapointed in this cake. It tasted rather oily, for lack of a better term. I did follow the recipe as written. I think the recipe is salvagable and will try it again with some substitutions.

Cherry Crumble

Reviewed: Jul. 24, 2012
I needed a way to use up all the sour cherries on my tree, and gave this a try, making my usual homemade pie filling. My guests thought it was good. I found it just a little bland. I may try it again and add some sliced almonds to the topping. I did bake the crust a bit before adding the remaining ingredients to keep the bottom from becoming soggy. Thanks for a good recipe.
