Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2007
The smell alone will convince you! I made this according to recipe, only adding garlic. I layered these in my big roasting oven...and it wasn't even done and I was thinking, I didn't make enough - they are gonna want more! I'm making this again and sealing it up for lunches for myself. What a GREAT way to get your 5 servings in...and lose weight too!

Catherine's Spicy Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This WAS very good. Better than another "tortilla soup" that I tried. I too omitted the whole tomatoes and the condensed soup...I was aiming for something a little thicker and heartier. We garnished with some grated cheese and crushed tortilla chips. I think this is a keeper.

Caribbean Pasta with Shrimp

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2006
Not one of my favorites. The ginger is overpowering to me.

Tangy Turkey and Swiss Sandwiches

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2006
KEEPER. Didn't have the onions, so went with a dash of garlic. I've now made these with both turkey and ham. Used plain "country style white bread" too. Even my hubby who hands-down would pick a cold sandwich over grilled LOVED this, and I quote, "MMMM,tasty!" He asked for one for dinner too. :-) I know it's good. He usually has a simple pallette and doesn't often request my "experiments" even if they are what the rest of the known world might call gourmet! lol

Almond-Crusted Halibut Crystal Symphony

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2006
RATING THE SAUCE ONLY - as I nabbed it to compliment my chicken breasts topped with shrimp. :-) I'm not a big fish eater, but I do like shellfish. Anyway, I'm giving the sauce a 5 star rating, though next time I will further reduce the amount of lemon (I doubled the recipie but NOT the lemon) and will go even less next time, because the lemon makes it a little too "bright" for my taste. However, that said...as is, I would serve this sauce to company. It is marvelous and not at all hard to make. Time consuming...not particularly, not if you are multi tasking. Thanks!

Mark's English Sausage Rolls

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2006
These are YUMMY. I took about 2 cups of generic croutons and crushed and then moistened them and added it into the jimmy dean sage sausage. It made it milder... These were too flaky (color me surprised) for me, and only because i'm comparing them in my mind to the original thing growing up as a kid in Australia. I don't recall that much flake, certainly more than the average pie crust...but not quite right. It may have to do with the temp the dough was at...it is very finicky. Still, these were very good.

Ann's Shrimp Etouffee

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2006
****BAM**** Holy moly, this is PHENOMENAL. Even if you consider yourself a GREAT cook, I think this will impress you. I followed the recipe exactly until adding the salt...at which point, I used Zataran's creole seasoning salt (using the saltiness to guide you). This roux was SO SMOOTHE (thanks to the butter me thinks). It danced lightly upon every taste bud I have. Absolutely the BEST recipe I've tasted in a long time (and I'm a cook...not just a now-and-again-er, if you know what I mean...). MMMM-mmmm-mmmm. HALLELUJAH say's the taste buds! Can't thank you enough Ann!!

Japanese Chicken Wings

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
This was excellent. Simple, tasty, succulent. Kids loved it...and I served it over rice with a cabbage salad and asian inspired creamy dressing (also found on allrecipes!)

Creamy Oriental Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2006
I made this by throwing some mayo, corn syrup, ginger, garlic powder, pepper and the all important soy in a blender. Just kept adding to taste! Can I just say, FANTASTIC. The kids love it because its "just like" the dressing you get at the terriyaki place! teeheee easy peasy when you've got to fly by the seat of your pants!

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2004
5 Stars for sure! I MADE THIS LOW-FAT!!! I substitued Lite Coconut Milk (using the lowest fat/cals available, they are not all equal) and I cut the sugar in half and used splenda. This was phenomenal and I don't mean "for a low-fat meal"...I mean this was by far THE BEST curry I've made (and I consider myself a curry conisseur!) and rates right up there with the best I've eaten in a restaurant...perhaps even better! My kids (7&9) LOVED it too. Thank you! Note: for newbie curry cooks, make sure you dissolve the curry in the oil to avoid a very unpleasant gritty texture. The fresher the curry, the better! If you know someone serving over in the gulf right now...ask them to pick you up some curry...I got stocked up in at is THE BEST stuff I've ever used!

Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2003
All I can say is, "WOW!" These were the hit of the feast. My 8 year old ate 5 bunddles! Of the things I served for Christmas dinner, my guests asked for this recipe and that of the Fried Sweet Potatoes. Scrumptious!
