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.

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!

Creamiest Rice Pudding

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2010
Delicious! I removed the lid for the last 10 minutes of simmering because it looked very soupy as others have reviewed. This worked well; just stand by and stir as needed so it doesn't get too thick too fast. Do temper the eggs with some of the rice mixture before adding. This is a must whenever you add beaten eggs to any hot liquid. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

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.

No-Mayonnaise Ranch Dressing

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2008
Love it! Love it! And we like mayo, too. It's a great all around dressing to doctor up or not. Do try it! Leftovers a long time in the fridge, too.

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.

Absolutely the BEST Rich and Creamy Blue Cheese Dressing Ever!

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
I thought it was too sweet. Next time I'll use just a dash of sugar or more cheese. MMMMmmm, more cheese!

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.

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!

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!

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!

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.

Sweet Potato and Carrot Soup with Cardamom

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
Loved it, with minor adjustment. I also needed to add about 2 more cups of stock (veg was nice) to keep it from resembling baby food. Tried leftovers the next day adding a little coconut milk. Not bad, but I like it without better. Delicious, try it.

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.

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.

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 7, 2010
Delicious! As per others, I used half the amount of sugar and found it quite sweet enough. Same feeling the second time using this recipe using cranberry vinegar instead of raspberry. Very versatile, I'd say. Do try it!

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.

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.

Grilled Cornish Game Hens

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2012
These birds turned out really well. I was sure the lemon juice would overpower everything but I was wrong. The flavor sublime. I followed another poster's suggestion and pureed the onion, garlic and lemon juice in the Vitamix. Then added the rest of ingredients. Marinated butterflied birds for 5 hours and they cooked in about 35 minutes. Served them up with the Mushroom Rice recipe from this site and steamed broccoli. A winner!
