Bread Pudding III

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2010
I thought this was really good. I added 2 apples, peeled and diced. I used challah bread. I also pressed the bread mixture down a bit once it was in the pan with the liquid to help it soak up the yummy goodness.

Yummy Bok Choy Salad

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2010
This was pretty good. I stir fried broccoli and carrots too and put everything over brown rice. Next time I'll probably try brown sugar and maybe another type of vinegar.

Chocolate Brittle Surprise

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
I used graham crackers like other reviewers suggested. I used dark chocolate chips and almonds on top. This was yummy. I would have given it 5 stars if the recipe had included some direction on temperature the sugar/butter mixture should reach in the oven. I removed mine from the oven a little too soon and it never set up completely. Next time, I'll do it on the stove, and wait until the mixture reaches maybe 250?? degrees and then pour it over the crackers.

Strawberry/Rhubarb Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2009
delicious. Make sure your rhubarb pieces are small enough. I only sliced into 1/2 inch pieces and they would have cooked more thoroughly if I had diced into 1/4 inch pieces.

Orecchiette and Broccoli Crisp

Reviewed: Feb. 10, 2009
This was good. I had reservations because I thought there wouldn't be much flavor. I tried putting in less butter, but ended up going with the whole amount. I used garlic/parsley flavored pasta and followed another reviewer's suggestion of adding a squeeze of lemon at the end. Because I probably used too much pasta, I had to add more chicken broth as well. All in all, this was a great meal as long as you use high quality ingredients. (I also used regular balsamic vinegar, which turned out fine.)

Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2008
wow! These are way better than what you get in a store. I agree with freezing them first, then grilling... or just be careful when flipping. Either way, these are yummy. I like the way they the edges crisp up on the grill... similar to the way a burger does. I plan to use this recipe to make stuffed green peppers tonight. see taseteslikefood.com for pics.

Thai Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2008
wow, this is going to be one of my stand-by meals. I really liked this. I bought curry powder (a decent brand) at the grocery store. I used broccoli, carrots and green onions. I added currents at the end along with the juice of 1/2 a lime. It needed salt, so I added that to taste. This was a snap and one of those recipes that is really easy to remember. watch tasteslikefood.com and I'll eventually post a picture there.

Middle Eastern Rice with Black Beans and Chickpeas

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2006
This was very good. I used jasmine rice. I halved the recipe and used 2c of vegetable broth (even though that amount of rice called for 1.5 cups of liquid.) I liked the pine nuts -- it added a nice crunch to the texture of chickpeas, rice and beans. I used grilled chicken instead of ground meat. I also served Chris J's tzatziki sauce in his Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style recipe on this site (minus the cucumber). I warmed pitas on the grill with the chicken (only a minute or so).

Chicken Souvlaki Gyro Style

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2006
This was a really great summer recipe. I warmed the pita bread on the grill slightly (it gets crispy quickly). Spend the extra dollar or two for the good pita bread. It makes ALL the difference. I served the pepperoncini whole, on the side. I have made this several times and have begun to use balsamic vinegrette in place of the dressing, and "Just 2 Good" Italian dressing as a marinade. I also used tin foil to hold the taco-like shape of the pita bread. This keeps it warm too. Perhaps the best tip I have is to use strained yogurt -- I found greek yogurt at the local specialty foods shop, but it might be available at Whole Foods / Wild Oats. Also, I just cubed the cucumbers b/c I like the crunch.

Banana Bran Muffins

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
excellent. Moist and delicious. The muffin tops came out perfect with a slight crisp. I added walnuts for some extra crunch.

New Red Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2006
This is a great old fashioned creamy base, but lacked depth of flavor. I added about 2 T of german-style mustard, some chopped chives and flat leaf parsely. Wonderful.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
I marinated the chicken overnight and I might have also added too much orange zest. (While I was putting the marinade together I anticipated not enough orange flavor) So this came out a little too flavorful for us, but I'm going to blame myself for that. I added blanched broccoli to the stir fry. We'll make this again, but I might try using less sugar next time.

Chicken Salad Balsamic Sandwich

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2006
This seemed to be missing a layer of flavor. The basalmic over-powered the salad. It was okay, but not amazing. It needs good bread or, I hate to say it, but... a slice of cheese

Vegetarian Kofta Kabobs

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2006
eh, This was just "okay" for us. I topped it with plain lowfat yogurt to give it another dimension of flavor.

Portofino Lamb and Artichoke Risotto

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2006
My husband and I thought this was pretty good. The wine choice is important. We used a dry white wine as suggested. We didn't have any leftover lamb, so I grilled some lamb chops with a mustard-like barbeque sauce. I used artichokes packed in water and drained them before chopping and adding them to the dish.

Curried Chicken with Mango Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 18, 2006
I thought this recipe was very bland and dry. The chicken turned out tough. I was using a homemade curry powder from an Indian friend and I have made other curry dishes that turned out great, so it wasn't the curry powder. I ended up making a quick coconut curry sauce to pair with this meal so it would have some flavor.

Moroccan Chicken with Polenta

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
This was one of the best meals I've ever made. We really loved the layers of flavor. Don't spill this -- or you'll never get it out of your clothing!

Chicken Coconut Curry

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2006
I used boneless skinless chicken breasts and I added 1 russet potato and 1/2 head of cauliflower. I cut the onions into quarters and chopped all the veggies into large chunks. I served this with jasmine rice and we loved it. My only issue was the ammount of curry... I was using homemade cury from India and 2 T was WAY too much for me. 1 would have been fine. Overall- I think this dish relies heavily on the quality of the curry mix you use. It was easy and tasted great once I figured out the correct amount of curry to use.

Chicken with Pine Nuts Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
Very tastey. I don't think this needs so much oil though. I roasted quartered red potatos with olive oil and seasoning in a pan next to the chicken -- took the same ammt of time. Served it with french bread. I'll definitely make it again. Easy and healthy.

Seared Pork Cutlets with Asian Pan Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2005
This was really good -- has a delicious sauce. I steamed some broccoli and added that, along with baby carrots to the dish. I also cooked a chicken breast in the same pan with the pork chop. I strained the sauce thru some cheese cloth to remove the garlic and ginger hunks. I mixed up a little bit of corn starch and water and added that to the sauce over heat to thicken it. This was a really great sauce that I'll use on other meats -- or just on rice with vegetables. SOOO good!!
