Pipirrana (Spanish Potato Salad)

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

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!

Spicy Rapid Roast Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 5, 2009
Skinned it, cooked it, and it was delicious! (I saved the skin and the cooked carcass in a freezer bag to make chicken stock at a later date).

Baker's Secret Pie Crust

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2009
Doubled it, used Earth Balance shortening, and whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose for chicken pot pie, and WOW--thick, great, copious crust. I rolled it pretty thick since the dough was so cold, and I had way more than I need. And thanks to the shortening, the crust is just as good the second day, even after refrigeration, as it was the first.

Marinated Flank Steak

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2008
Good stuff. Made this at a barbecue, to rave reviews. It was a little too salty for me, but not for anyone else, and I still loved it!

Thai-Style Tilapia

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2008
So I used lemon juice instead of lemongrass (hey, it was Easter), fresh grated ginger instead of powdered, and a whole can of full-fat coconut milk (oops--forgot to check the measurements). The result was really saucy and yummy, excellent over brown rice. I can't wait to try the lemongrass if it's this good without it!

My Canadian Friend's Bean Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 17, 2008
I used this recipe as a template, and it's ideal for that. I started beans from dry, 2 cups. I used a local venison-pork sausage that is leaner an firmer, so I very thinly sliced it rather than crumbling it. I used a 28 oz. can of whole tomatoes and added oregano and basil. And the soup was superb, with a dash of Louisiana hot sauce and a side of homemade Italian herb bread.

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!

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!

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!

Couscous with Dried Cherries

Reviewed: Jan. 29, 2007
Easy and subtle. I don't like bland food, so perhaps it's the fact that I paired it with a garlicky catfish almondine that makes it so yummy to me. I used raisins, and they plumped up nicely. Will definitely make this again!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2006
I used salad bar roasted garlic, and next time I'll know to mash it separately before whipping the potatoes. Otherwise, easy and yummy.

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!

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!

Apple Avocado Salad with Tangerine Dressing

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2006
Lovely, lovely salad--gorgeous colors, and a fantastic mix of textures. Even the boyfriend liked it, though he raised an eyebrow over the sneaking in of fruit with vegetables. I used Clementines and Greek feta, but otherwise followed the recipe to a T. Definitely something I will make again!

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!!!!

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!

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!

French Beef Stew

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2008
Very easy, very good. I love mustard so used the dijon full-strength, and that's what made the soup. Don't add a thing--why complicate this wonderful simplicity? ADDED: Since I have added this recipe to my rotation and cook it a lot, I'm giving it 5 stars instead of the original 4.
