Zesty Rice 'N' Bean Casserole

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2007
Quick, easy, tasty. Mozzarella cheese is a nice change from the standard Cheddar. I sprinkled some chopped cilantro on it before serving to freshen it up. This will be a reliable dish for busy days and lean-money months.

Coconut Ice Cream

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2007
I actually thought this ice cream was a little too sweet, but I admit it went down easily! I used only about 2/3 cup finely chopped coconut (processed in a mini-food processor) and found it to be plenty. I, too, think the recommended amount of stringy coconut would demand too much chewing. It's very nice with toasted coconut on top.

Grand Marnier Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 14, 2007
These are GRAND (!) and have become a regular item for company and gift-giving. Note: A small piece goes a long way. I found mini chocolate chips work best; standard size sink to the bottom. I believe most people will enjoy these brownies.

Honey Peanut Granola

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2007
This has become my starting point recipe for granola, although I agree with GrannyLooHoo and have reduced the sugar and oil content and have added a little cinnamon. Also, I often add dried fruits but only after the granola has finished baking. That way the fruit stays soft and doesn't stick to your teeth, if you can chew it at all! The exception to that is coconut; I like mine toasted, so I add it with the rest of the ingredients if I'm using it. Enjoy; you may never buy granola again!

Anzac Biscuits with Macadamia Nuts

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
These cookies are habit-forming! I've used this recipe several times because I love the taste of macadamia nuts and coconut. The only thing I do differently is add more water; about 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons. The mixture will not hold together for me otherwise. For a uniform product, I press the cookie dough into a small cookie scoop, place them on an airbake cookie sheet then flatten them with a greased and sugared glass bottom (make sure it's flat-bottomed.) At 12 minutes, they are chewy; at 15 minutes they are crunchy, as stated.

Hawaiian Macadamia-Coconut Squares

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2007
I had high hopes for this dessert; what's not to like with these ingredients? Well, they were really sweet and I thought the coffee made everything else taste flat. Sorry, but I won't be making again.

Coconut Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
This is a delicious quick bread; better than the recipe I've always used. The second time I made it, the only slight changes I made were to include a 1/2 teaspoon of coconut extract along with the other extracts, which gave it a nice flavor and to chop the coconut so the bread wasn't so chewy. Several people asked for the recipe after they sampled it at choir practice. Do try it!

Glazed Cornish Game Hens With Apricot Pistachio Dressing

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
These hens are a wonderful holiday or company entree making a lovely presentation. I'm glad I read the other reviews; even at 350-degrees the hens started to get dark brown before they were cooked through, so tenting with foil may be needed. Keep a watch on them. Also, there is not an abundance of fruit or pan juices, so if you like lots, you might want to increase the amount of fruit and deglaze the pan with chicken broth or white wine at the end. Definitely worth making!

Quick and Easy Thai Style Coleslaw

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
We didn't care for the sour, fishy taste of this cole slaw. Maybe it was the brand of fish sauce I used. Oh, well, there are plenty of other salads out there.

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Although the roast was moist and I thought it tasted pretty good, my husband didn't care for it. I hardly tasted the vinegar, but he did. Sooooo, I'll probably stick to the old marinade standby: Montreal steak seasoning, garlic, olive oil and a touch of soy sauce. Never fails to delight.

Cranberry Coleslaw

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Zing! I made this for a Christmas potluck dinner last night. Came home with an empty bowl. The cranberries really liven up the cole slaw while the apples balance out their tartness. It's a winner!

Low Carb Cauliflower Leek Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
What a wonderful soup!! After reading the reviews, I used only 6 cups of stock and found it to be just right. It wasn't bad without the cream, but I crave that velvety goodness of cream soups. Use a dusting of curry powder or not; delicious both ways.

Mom's Traditional Creamed Onions

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Way too much watery sauce for the amount of onions called for. I'd use half the amount of liquid and maybe some dehydrated onion bits to give the sauce some flavor in addition to the salt and pepper to taste.

Portuguese Bean Soup I

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2008
I'd really like to give this a three and a half stars; my husband really liked it, I sort of liked it. It brought to mind my grandfather's habit of putting ketchup in his chicken soup. Why he would do that? I don't know. Anyway, it's a change of pace soup; something different with the beans, definitely spicy, and easy to fix.

Soft Onion Sandwich Rolls

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
Oh, yeah! These rolls are the cat's meow, awesome, da bomb! I, too, have baked up many a disappointing batch of rolls. These are what I have been looking for. Nice with or without the onions on top. Try them with Dan's Favorite Chicken Sandwich from this site and some pan fried pickled jalepenos. Oh, WOW!

Easy Garam Masala

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2008
Just what I needed! I didn't have time to round up whole spices; frankm7 is right, whole is best, but in a pinch, this worked well.

Orange Roughy with Montreal Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
We enjoyed this treatment of orange roughy. I think it can easily be used on any fish fillet. I used a Villaware indoor grill; it was quick, easy and very tasty.

Butt Stompin' Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
This sauce is terrific, with just enough heat to make it addictive! I was unable to find fresh habanero peppers so I used dried ones. The only mistake I made was to puree everything at the end since I was after a smooth basting sauce for baby back ribs. The aeration from the blender made the sauce lose it's slick, rich color, so I won't do that again. I will probably just dice the onion much smaller next time. These are not for the faint-hearted!

Yogurt Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2008
This recipe turns out well time and time again. I usually don't have lemon yogurt on hand. I use it when I do, but normally I use plain yogurt and double the amount of lemon extract. It's a winner; thanks for posting.
