Bacon-y Bok Choy

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2007
I found this to be okay, but am not sure I'd necessarily make it again. I wanted to use up some leftover baby bok choy we had, but ended up not having as much as I'd thought. Luckily we also had lots of leftover baby spinach, so making up the difference was easy. The spinach tasted much better in this dish than the bok choy, so I would use that exclusively if I were to repeat this recipe.

Absolutely The Best Shrimp Scampi

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2007
I was not incredibly impressed with this recipe, either. I agree that it was missing something...in my case, any sauce? My favorite part of this dish was the angel hair pasta I served it on, which was tossed with just a touch of fresh cream and parsley beforehand. For instances where this does yield sauce, however, I'm sure that would need some improvisation to prevent it from being too greasy. I may try this again with some modifications for move flavor, but the recipe is a good start.

Maple Butter

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2007
This was excellent! I switched the proportions of maple syrup and brown sugar, resulting in a slightly runny consistency, but since we were using it on waffles it didn't make much of a difference. I've seen other maple butter recipes, but never one with spices -- a definite keeper!

Georgia Spiced Peaches

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
I made these to surprise my husband, who grew up in Georgia, and they turned out pretty well for my first time with canning. Nonetheless, I would definitely recommend starting with less sugar than what this recipe calls for and adding to one's personal taste, as they tasted way too sweet for either of us.

'I Hate Cucumbers!' Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2007
This recipe is similar to something we used to make at my uncle's deli, with the addition of sliced fresh tomatoes. When I attempted to make the dressing for this salad, the proportions didn't work to my liking, so I ended up discarding half the dressing and adding more mayonnaise to cut the strong vinegar taste and reduce the soupy consistency (and a tad more sugar!)... If you prefer the original proportions, I might also recommend trying a slightly more mild rice wine vinegar.

Blue Cheese Burgers

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
This is the best burger I've ever had! Like others, I doubled the ingredients, added some garlic and served them on toasted whole wheat buns with red onion, lettuce, avocado & grilled portobello. We did not have the full 2 hours to let the mixture sit, but 1 hour was still sufficient. I can't wait to make these again!

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
Very good. I stir fried some turkey strips and then mixed them in with the sauce and noodles. I think what made this recipe work so well was using equal amounts of dark and light soy sauce. This is a definite keeper!

Rhubarb Custard Pie II

Reviewed: Jun. 12, 2007
WOW. This is the best pie I've *ever* had!!! I followed the suggestions of others and mixed the rhubarb with the custard before adding it to the pie crust. This would make a great recipe for any get-together and I will definitely be making it again and again!

Chicken Katsu

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2007
Great! I served this with white rice and a side of stir-fried vegetables, but didn't use the recommended sauce as it was somewhat expensive. Nonetheless, pineapple teriyaki sauce made a great substitution. Thanks for the recipe! :P

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
Phenomenal. This was my first and last try experimenting with coleslaw recipes. It was exactly what I was looking for and I'll never need to look for another again! A definite winner with everyone else who tried it, as well. :)

Zucchini Bread IV

Reviewed: Sep. 12, 2006
I cut this recipe in half to make just one loaf, using one egg and half an eggshell of water. BIG MISTAKE...Sure, the bread turned out very well, but the one loaf disappeared way too fast! :) Make the whole thing if you can, because this recipe is definitely worth it!

Asian Tuna Patties

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2004
i really enjoyed the consistency of these...they were MUCH better than the dreaded "tuna burgers" my mother used to make when i was little. i followed the ingredients exactly, but made the patties half of the size stated. i served them on beds of shredded lettuce and served them with wasabi mayo and sushi-like accompaniments such as wasabi soy sauce and pickled ginger. that was a big hit. :)

Gyro Burgers

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2004
this was pretty good. i can't say i liked the taste of boca burgers, but the sauce was an excellent cover up! onions and cucumbers, both sliced paper-thin, made a great finishing touch.

Home On The Range Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2004
wow. this was really tasty. i did omit the celery salt and found that to be helpful, but another option may be using low sodium tuna. i thought about using this for a pot luck or even when having friends over, but will definitely make it with albacore. It was excellent!

Chicago Dip

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2004
this is WAY better than anything from the store! and JBANDKL's idea of using a small bowl inside for clean up was just as big of a hit as the dip itself. :) definitely let this one sit overnite, if you can leave it alone that long...
