Orange Fluff I

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2005
Interesting, but the cottage cheese was a bit overpowering. Made for an pukey texture.

Ratatouille Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
This is a great alternative to traditional ratatouille, which requires baking. Now that it's summer, zucchini and eggplant are in season but it's too hot for the oven! We added sweet peppers and spinach. Also mixed in ricotta instead of mozzarella and didn't broil it, which made for a creamy texture.

Redfish Court-bouillon

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2006
I really liked the thick sauce (lessened tomato juice as suggested) but unfortunately it didn't soak into the fish so well. But try frying the leftovers for that and you're in business.

Guinataan Hito (Catfish)

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2012
Took all the advice: added jalapenos, garlic, peppers and ginger. But the coconut milk made all the difference. Served over rice noodles. We really enjoyed this!

Almond Maple Granola

Reviewed: Jul. 7, 2011
Delicious! I used my own variation of ingredients but the wet ingredients here made for a really nice consistency. I think baking granola so long compromises the texture so I only leave it in the oven for less than an hour.

RWOP Finalist: Asparagus and Parmesan Cream Pastry

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2011
I've done something similar with various vegetables but what makes this recipe a winner is the combination of ingredients for the cheese spread. Tastes sophisticated.

Burek

Reviewed: Mar. 28, 2011
This recipe is easy but not quite the MOIST burek I love so much! I think moisture is also the key to working with phyllo dough so here are a few ideas. 1) Don't drain the beef too much - or at all! The grease helps to make the dough sheets pliable. 2) When you are not using the dough sheets cover them directly with a damp kitchen rag so they don't crack when you roll them up. 3) If the dough still isn't moist enough to work with you'll have to keep lathering on the butter as you roll it. Also I threw an egg in the beef mixture, which seemed to help. A little more grease may not make it healthier but it definitely makes it more delicious and more authentic!

Quick Spinach-Ricotta Calzones

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2007
You can defeat the packaged taste of canned dinner rolls and frozen spinach by mixing up the filling. We threw in some ground meat, red pepper flakes, basil, fun cheeses, etc. Really whatever's on hand because it's a pretty versatile recipe.

Too sweet. Texture was nice, but otherwise uninteresting.

Ground Beef Wellington

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
This one's fun! I used a can of mushroom soup as a base for the sauce because that's what I had on hand and I added onion soup mix to the meat as suggested.

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2011
Don't know why I thought these cookies should be more complicated. They were a hit!

Quinoa and Black Bean Chili

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
Really excellent! Some things we added/substituted according to what we had on hand: hominy instead of regular corn, green beans instead of zucchini, plus italian sausage. The chipotles made for a fantastic, full flavor!!!

Baked Macaroni and Cheese with Tomato

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2011
You really can add just about any vegetable to this recipe and our choice is broccoli. Don't even need to precook it because the baking leaves it plenty soft. Added garlic powder and basil and I downed the butter and didn't miss it.

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
Whenever we need something to spice up our breakfast - could be waffles pancakes toast whatever - I throw some apples on and it's instantly gourmet. You can't go wrong with this one.

Cranberry Scones

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
Not quite as good as I expected. I'm a scone novice so I may need to do more research before trying it again to get some help with the dough process.

I like it but it came out pretty frothy. I guess don't over puree it!
