Brown Rice and Black Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 23, 2012
This was a nice meal. My husband rated it with a "make it once every other month". I did not put mushrooms in because we do not care for them. I increased rice to one cup and made it with chicken stock. I also didn't have green chiles so I bumped up cayenne. I increased the carrots to about 3/4 cup and used cheddar instead. There is nothing wrong with the original...these changes just worked for our family and cupboards. :) Thanks!!

Spiced Quinoa

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2012
Loved this "salad"! I made it for a gathering of women and many of them really liked it and even asked for the recipe. I ate it both warm and cold and both were good. I agree with the many folks who said don't forget the raisins. I didn't soak mine ahead of time because the extra broth did the job. I suggest waiting to just before serving to toss the pine nuts in so that they don't get mushy. Thanks for the recipe!

Premium Tres Leches Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
I made this for a latino girl's birthday celebration and she thought that it was good...not quite as nice as the kind she gets in her home country but it hit the spot.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
Delicious! I added extra mango, doubled the avo and threw in about 1/2 cup fresh chopped pineapple. I also did not remove seeds from jalapeno...we like it spicy and I would have actually added another had I had one on hand. Finally, the shops were all sold out of cilantro so I had to omit it (very sad) and yet it still was delicious. Thanks!

Linda's Lasagna

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
I was very pleased with this recipe. I baked 10 lasagnas for a banquet and got so many compliments. Since I live in a foreign country I did have to make some adjustments...maybe this will help someone else. I used tomato sauce (personal preference) instead of chopped, added about 1/3 cup red wine per batch, added a few shakes of italian seasoning, used a mixture of cottage and ricotta and used the no cook noodles. When I was ready to layer I put all noodles in a pan of warm water to make pliable then I did sauce, noodles, cottage cheese, mozz cheese, noodle, sauce, cheeses, etc. On top I put sauce then mozz. Four layers. I baked covered with foil for 30 mins at 370 and uncovered for 20 mins a bit higher. These were a HUGE HIT! Thanks!

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2010
I just threw 2 cups thawed leftover turkey from T-day that was in the freezer into a skillet and then put about 2.3 bottle of HP (British brand) honey barbecue sauce, 3 TBL brown sugar, 1/3 cup italian dressing and 1 generous TBL of worcestershire sauce. Let it cook together for 45 mins and turned out perfect.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
I've made this many, many times and it's always a hit (expect with my husband and little boys who picked up their daddy's fussy habits). I always add the quinoa to the onions and garlic and "toast" it a bit till I smell a nutty fragrance and then add the broth in. I also throw in red chopped peppers with the cilantro for a sweet, colorful crunch.

Almond Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
This salad is DELICIOUS! I've made it twice in the last couple of days (for different social events) and everyone loved it. I followed the recipe except increase cilantro (love it) and put it in a nice low-carb wrap with chopped chinese cabbage. No one thought the mustard was spicy or overwhelming...not sure what people are talking about. :)

Spicy Chicken and Sweet Potato Stew

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
I absolutely LOVE this stew! I did make a few alterations per my family's preference. My alterations would be: no bell pepper (not a fan in stews), diced tomatoes with jalapeno peppers instead of regular, chicken stock instead of water, black beans instead of kidney and I leave off the red pepper flakes since tomatoes already give it a kick. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Strawberry Spinach Salad III

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I selected this one for the lower calories. It was nice. I did add about two tablespoons of sliced almonds to the pan when I browned the sesame seeds. I also minced fresh onion instead of using powder.

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2009
I picked this recipe because of the lower calorie/fat content compared to most soups of this nature. I followed the recipe except for one thing...I used fresh butternut squash instead of pumpkin. We only get pumpkin from India here and it's not as nice. I served it with a swirl of whipping cream and parsley on top. I then cut circles of a small baguette and made a notch in them to sit on the edge of the bowl. The ladies at my luncheon all enjoyed the taste and appearance.

Tilapia with Creamy Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2009
Tilapia is not common in my country so I used a mild, white fish (hammour). I didn't not put on lemon pepper (since I don't have any) and just dashed freshly ground sea salt & pepper on the fish. I followed another reviewer and toned down the lemon in sauce. Next time I will cut it in half. The best part of the meal is that my hubby and 6 year old each had at least a 5 oz portion and my 4 year old liked it too.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
Good. Easy. I didn't put mushrooms in because we don't like them and it was still very tasty. I also didn't flour chicken but pounded it out a bit. Thew the whole bit over pasta and loved it.

Rolled Buttercream Fondant

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
This was my first fondant experience and it turned out well. It made SO MUCH! I dyed the dough black to make darth vador heads for cupcakes for my sons class. It was greasy and time consuming but well worth the hassle. By the way...I agree with original recipe and people's comment about sifting sugar.

Cinnamon Toast

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2009
This recipe is hilarious. I saw a photo for this in the contest area and thought it must be a joke. I guess I figured that everyone has done this by the age of 2. I suppose we all have to learn "staple" recipes from somewhere.:-)

Grandma's Lemon Meringue Pie

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
Flavor...great. Meringue...great. Crust...great. Filling...runny. It was my first lemon meringue pie and so I'm sure that I just didn't cook it long enough.

Peppermint Brittle

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
I received good feedback on this treat but I thought it wasn't that great. I grew up making my peppermint brittle with a few drops of mint extract but couldn't find it in this country. If you can get your hands on that then put some drops in to give it a boost.

Caramel Shortbread Squares

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
Wow! So good. I made them for a youth function and all of the British kids said that it tasted just like what they were used eating in the UK. Apparently, it's a classic British sweet.

Shrimp and Crab Bisque

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2009
I feel bad for giving this such a low rating because I didn't follow the recipe at all. My husband and I have been craving crab bisque after watching the "Soup Nazi" from Seinfeld and so I tried to make it but with cutting the fat and calories in half. Not a good idea. My suggestion would be to follow the recipe and prepare your waistline.
