Halibut Weaver

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2009
I thought this might be a better recipe for an inexpensive fish. The mayonnaise flavor was very heavy and covered most of the wonderful halibut flavor.

Best Italian Sausage Soup

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2008
this is our favorite soup. i have been asked to bring it to partys alot and always have been asked for the recipe. like many, i use tortellini instead of the suggested pasta and i also use fresh or frozen spinach instead of zuccini. spicy sausage is also wonderful. i usually make it in a big electric roaster and change the servings to "20" instead of serving eight and that is perfect for the roaster. this way, as a side, it serves a good fifty people. top with parmesan cheese

Broccoli and Tortellini Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2007
As I expected, having tried the version with no pasta, this was great! The tortellini was a perfect compliment for the salad. I used Borrela's off the shelf and it was wonderful. I also tripled the dressing and used almost all of it after letting the initial half soak in ahead of time.I also used half the amount of sugar and once used fat free mayo....do NOT do this! It is worth the calories using regular mayo!!Also, used thawed frozen broccoli and was just as good as fresh if not better.

Sugar Coated Pecans

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2006
wonderful stuff! I made these specifically for a salad of romaine,feta cheese,greek olives,balsamic dressing etc.they were a perfect addition. I intended to use the tip of using the zip lock bags to mix but, unless you want to save washing a bowl it is very easy to stir it up in a bowl.the tip about transferring the entire egg white/pecan mixture was helpful, i had been confused about the transfer too. I did use an extra egg white and substituted vanilla for a teaspoon of the water. I am sensitive to the processed sugars so used and organic unprocessed whole cane sugar(rapadura) that I get from the health food store. It mixed well and gave it a rich flavor. Also, when used in a salad, next time I will keep them on the side because they get gooey when they sit in the moist salad for very long.thanks for the recipe!

Tangy Pear and Blue Cheese Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 28, 2004
This is a great salad.The recipe does make too much dressing for the amount of salad made though.Iused a bit less sugar than called for,to taste.I also used toasted pecans the last time I made this instead of toasted walnuts and liked it better.....it also is just fine without the toasting when I am short on time.For people like us who are not crazy about blue cheese,feta is a great substitute.

Fatoosh

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2004
I would give this more than five stars if it were possible,it was FANTASTIC! I had to order the sumac on line,not a common spice in the midwest.The effort was worth it.My company and I couldn't leave this salad alone,it was such a treat.The store was out of pita bread so I got a loaf of old world type bread from the bakery,sliced and toasted it and served on the side instead of mixing in. I only immagine that the pitas couldn't be any better if I had them,will try for comparison next time. We will make this alot because it is wonderfully different and simple to prepare. I want to pair it next time with gorganzola grape leaf rolls from this site,they are both spectacular and would compliment each other I am sure. Thankyou for sharing this. This recipe alone makes all the time I have spent reading reviews worth it!

Maple Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2004
we have made this twice and both times have DOUBLED the marinade.This gave just the right of wonderful goo to spoon over after it had cooked and thickened a bit. I used a metal pan the first time and wouldn`t recommend that.It cooked hotter and thickened the souce too much,overcooking the sauce. A glass pan worked much better. I have greater success with salmon if it is slightly frozen in the middle when I start marinading it and even when starting to bake because salmon is best when not overcooked . Thanks,this was very tasty and we`ve done alot of salmon recipes. I also just left the maple syrup on the table and we drizzled extra on our fish after cooking.Goes beautifully with forbidden rice (a purple rice available in health food stores) steamed veggies and fresh cut pineapple!

Thirty Day Friendship Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2004
these are good bars,not really a cake.they also are not real appetizing looking so I served them with a dollop of whipped cream on top.I remember making a friendship cake years ago with a very fermented flavor, it was a light and moist cake,the best I`ve ever made. This was good but not it.

Alan's Ultimate Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2003
This is what a bran muffin should taste like! Thankyou to Latisha who said it was too dense, it was that"negative feedback"that made me want to try it.I`ve been looking for a dense and flavorful bran muffin and most often the sugar content is so high that is all one tastes. I use a"gold" whole wheat flour that I order from wheat Montana, it worked well in this recipe and it`s chemical-free.I also ground the raisins and then added some additional dried fruit blend consisting of cherries,blueberry and strawberry.I also added a scoop of no flavor soy based protein powder and got away with it! Thanks for a great muffin!

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2003
Wonderful! These are the best thing I`ve tryed next to the artchoke salsa from this site. I also omitted the water,used black beans instead of kidney and opted for canned sweet potatoes. I made extra to freeze and they were great after thawing and then baking. We served these with sour cream,sliced black olives and Chalupa hot sauce. Yum. Thanks!

Pork Chops for the Slow Cooker

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2003
We really enjoyed this dinner. The only thing I did different was I added some chunks of peeled apple the last hour, very complimentary. I will try the low sodium soy sauce next time, it was a bit salty for me. I served it over brown rice pasta and salad. Thanks!
