Gluten-Free Yellow Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2005
Thank you, Amy, and thank you, fellow reviewers. I used this recipe for my neighbor's kid, and it totally passed the five-year-old test. I added 1/2 c cocoa to the dry ingredients, upped the sugar to 1 1/2 c, and used Vanilla Rice Dream. And I used canola spray to grease the pans. The batter was pudding-like, the final product moist and even spongy. I used a pastry brush to whisk off the rice flour grains from the cooked layers, since the cake is VERY delicate. Oh, and xanthan gum costs a mint!

Eggless Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2003
Wow. Wow. I made this for my boyfriend, who's practically vegan, as my first excursion into egg and sour cream replacers. Other than a necessary substitution of raspberries for blueberries, I followed the recipe to a T. Fluffy, scrumptious, and definitely the best cake I've eaten in a long time. My boyfriend horded all of it--I couldn't even give a piece to my neighbors! NOT what you'd expect at all from the lackluster title. Chris, post more of those eggless recipes!!!!

Southwestern Barley Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2008
This recipe is strange in that it doesn't have any Southwestern spices. I added a teaspoon each of chili powder and cumin, and that really helped out. I even had folks ask me for the recipe! When I make it again, I'll add more lemon juice, too. For 3 cups cooked barley, in a 2-quart pot with lid, bring 3 cups of water to a boil, add 1 cup pearl barley, let it boil again and then cover it and simmer for 40 minutes. Then remove it from heat and let sit covered for 10 minutes. Fluff it with a fork like you would rice.

Choctaw Catfish

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2007
I used tilapia, and substituted seafood seasoning for the steak seasoning. I would have incinerated the fish if I'd cooked as long as recommended--I think I cut cook time almost in half (just check the underside for color). This was so incredibly, amazingly good--the fish was mild and flaky, the crust crunchy and satisfying. Just season to your taste!

Steak with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2007
The sauce is delicious (I used red wine and wild mushrooms), but the steak could use mre flavor--next time, I'll mix pepper in the flour.

Aloo Gobi ki Subzi (Potatoes and Cauliflower)

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2004
This smelled wonderful when it was cooking! Next time I'll double everything except the cauliflower and potato--using the whole amounts really overwhelmed the spices and made it far blander than I'd like. And leftovers would be fantastic.

Icelandic Christmas Cake

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2006
This quick bread is simply amazing and very forgiving. I've made it at least 10 times, once with only half the butter, and every time this unassuming cake gets all kinds of praise heaped on it. And it's a fantastic alternative to banana and zucchini breads, and even easier.

Fresh Coconut Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2004
Well worth the work! I did this with a hand mixer and an EZ Break coconut, and it worked out beautifully. My food processor doesn't have a meat grater, so just grate the whole coconut and be done with it. The frosting is delightful and not nearly as difficult as several other reviewers made it sound, though it only made enough to top each layer. Still, the cake looked elegant and tasted divine!

Leftover Roast Chicken Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2011
Great use of leftover chicken frames! I used two leftover frames, 8-10 cups water, added 1 tablespoon of salt with the other additions, and subbed peas for beans, since that made more sense to me. Mine's not bland at all, but that could be because I also added 5 jalapenos that were dying a slow, miserable death on my counter. But I'd make this again without the peppers, no problem!

Pipirrana (Spanish Potato Salad)

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2010
Perfect. The Spaniards that I had the audacity to cook Spanish food for were delighted, too.

Rushin' Casserole

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
A good staple recipe, not fabulous but easy, healthy, and yummy. If you love Stroganoff but want something a lot healthier but equally filling, this is a great substitute. I find myself making it about every two months or so simply because it is a healthy and easy recipe for ground beef. Edit 4/14/12: Just made this again last night and was reminded that 4 cups of yogurt is way too much--I think 2 would be sufficient, with the amount of garlic you plan to use halved, too.

Cassie's Wishy Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2009
Good but too salty, even though I cut it back to 3 tablespoons. I skinned my chicken, and the skin may absorb salt (I also used lime instead of lemon and Annie's Green Goddess dressing instead of 1000 island). Anyway, I will definitely make this super easy and adaptable recipe again, but I'll try it next with 1 tablespoon of salt.

Black Magic Cake

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2008
So two of my friends despise coffee. Instead of the cup of brewed coffee, I boiled water, placed 3 oz. unsweetened chocolate in a measuring cup, and poured enough water to equal 1 cup and stirred. The result was magnificent--I don't know how the coffee version tastes, but my version may very well be the best basic chocolate cake I've ever made!

Sausage and Lentils

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2007
Used a whole onion, 14 oz. of jalapeño pork-venison sausage, and ham base. Delicious with these changes. (I didn't think the sausage was pre-cooked, so I extended the cook time to 15 minutes.

Quick Lemon Dijon Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2010
A great recipe for people who love big flavor without the fat--I used 1/2 lemon and lime each, and squirted the other halves over fresh spinach before I tossed in this chicken (and some olive oil) to make a salad. A keeper!

Lemon Garlic Tilapia

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2007
Made some modifications according to other cooks' comments, but will not make this again since I found it rather boring. There are too many things to do with tilapia that are more flavorful, though this is very, very easy indeed!

Shrimp Burritos

Reviewed: Apr. 4, 2007
Really lovely! I changed it to shrimp tacos, used a pound of fresh Gulf shrimp, and subbed lowfat sour cream for the mayo and yogurt, and reduced fat monterrey jack for the cheddar. I also used local "southwest" tortillas which are a little spicy. Definitely a do-over! Thanks for the recipe!

Game Hens Southwestern-Style

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
I adored the hen, and my boyfriend loved the salsa (which I would have given a 4). I used half a red onion and didn't miss the other half; I didn't have lemon juice so doubled the lime. Next time, I'll bake the hens breast-side down. Oh, and I "doubled" the spices by using two hens, per another user's suggestion, and she was right!

Beef Yakitori

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2010
Amazing! Easy! I cheated and marinated a whole sirloin, and it was buttery and wonderful and yum. Definitely a keeper--thanks!
