Purple Apple Slaw

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2012
I only had one apple, it was a granny smith - so I diced it very finely so it would spread out further. Worked very well. We will have this again. Oh and I added finely grated carrot, lest the King protest.

Potato and Spinach Croquettes

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2012
I followed the recipe with one substitution - I used Swiss cheese, that is what I had, but it was a nice aged hard and dryish cheese. I shaped them and floured them and popped them on a parchment lined baking sheet for about an hour of refrigeration. Then I used the egg wash and the final coating of bread crumbs and they held their shape perfectly, though I was gentle with them.

Fried Zucchini

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2012
I needed to add water to the batter - after 45 minutes it wasn't batter yet, still just dry. I needed to sort out the veggies - the onions cooked lots faster than the squash did. I also found I needed to salt it after it was fried and drained. I fried it at 365 degrees.

Tasty Fried Eggplant Balls

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
I drained the eggplant very well, based on some reviewers. I did sautee my veggies before I stirred them in. Used red bell pepper (that is what I had) and added 2 cloves of minced garlic. I formed them into croquettes before I chilled them and chilled them for about an hour. They were awesome and everyone loved them. I will do them again soon.

Easy Pork and Sauerkraut

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2012
I made it with no beer and it didn't lack for liquid. I dusted the pork cubes with AP flour and browned in olive oil. I used two whole skin on chopped granny smith apples and two sweet onions, which I sauteed in the same olive oil along with the garlic and dill weed. I added table salt in place of onion salt. and a bout 1/4 of brown sugar. We will have this again, and I will change it to fit what is in the house. Very versitile.

Paella I

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
I had no musells, so I doubled the shrimp and added craw daddies. I added 5 small trout fillets, they needed to be used. I omitted the wine and used home made broth and dried parsley. I loved this rice in this dish, to me the creaminess is a plus. I will do this dish again, soon.

Mom's Chicken Paprika

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2012
Beautiful and easy !!! I used skin on bone in thighs, and they are perfect for this dish. I cut the shorting in half, this is pretty fatty chicken (it was on sale so you know how that goes.....) I did add a pinch of cyanne, because this smoked paprika I have in the house is pretty mild. I will make this agian.

Buttermilk Coleslaw

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2012
I used powdered buttermilk. I didn't have celery seed, so I used Dill seed that I briused in the mortar. I did add a hearty spoon of sea salt and a fine grated carrot to my own fresh cabbage. I used stevia in place of sugar. I added some white wine vinagar, too, in place of lemon juice. Will make this again,the clan here loved it.

Hot and Sour Soup with Bean Sprouts

Reviewed: Jul. 29, 2012
I had no bean sprouts or shitake mushrooms, so left them out (they would have been very nice) I used dried red pepper flakes adding them to the broth to blossom. I used 'better than bullion' for the broth.I use sherry in place of Marin and I added (thawed) frozen sweet peas. I used pressed fresh extra firm tofu cubed quite fine. It was wonderful. I will make it again soon and add the sprouts and mushrooms.

Pineapple Upside Down Cupcakes

Reviewed: Jul. 17, 2012
I used fresh cherry halves, pineapple canned in light syrup, and lemon cake mix to which I added a lemons worth of lemon zest and the same of juice along with the pineapple water - from the can. Used apple sauce in place of oil and only two eggs (that is all I had). I used about half a teaspoon of brown sugar AND of agave syrup on each of my cupcakes. They were pretty and deliciously moist!!

Apricot-Glazed Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 11, 2012
I had to change things up. I had no sesame seed, peppers, or water chestnuts. I added in grated fresh ginger root, finely sectioned broccoli and very thin carrot disks. I fried in the wok in walnut oil and added a few drops of sesame oil to it. I fried the ginger for 1-2 minutes, and then added everything else in at 1-2 minute intervals. This allows the wok to restore it's temperature as well as letting things have the right degree of softness (for us). Ginger -then onion, carrot, broccoli, garlic (I used 5 cloves) and shrimp. In the sauce I used shrimp stock (made with the shells- waste not want not) in place of chicken stock and added about 1.5 ounces (each) soy sauce and of rice vinegar. I reduced the corn starch to about 1 teaspoon and my sauce was velvety and shimmering, so I think that was plenty.

Spinach Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
They were good, but not a good choice for ravioli. I had hoped to make some, but ended up hand cutting the dough into fettuccine noodles and serving with Alfredo sauce. Very pretty and very tasty.

The Best Ever Chicken Nuggets

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2012
I used rice flour for the initial coating, stirred some basil into the egg, used Panko crumbs for the final coat of breading, let them dry on a rack for about 20 minutes before frying in 350 degree peanut oil in my deep fryer. I cooked for 2 or 2 and a half minutes each side and turned once during frying. They were very good, and all gone (which is the highest rating in this household).

Fried Empanadas

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2012
I used my own filling recipe (ground beef onion garlic, smoked paprika, Mexican oregano) I sauteed it all together and drained it well and added bread crumbs and an egg. I rolled the pastry very thin and did not poke holes in them. They were well sealed and did not leak. The crust puffed up in the peanut oil in my deep fryer very nicely. Really good pastry for the fryer.
