Curry Stand Chicken Tikka Masala Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
I made this because I was missing Indian food which is hard to come by in the town I recently moved to. I chose this recipe because it had the easiest list of ingredients and the easiest directions (yeah! I'm like lightning, choosing the path of least resistance). Turned out almost like my favorite NYC UES restaurant's tikka masala. My husband loved it too. Thanks for the recipe.

Sizzling Chicken Skewers

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2013
I am rating this from the dish I made with changes below. I read and followed the suggestion of another reviewer (re: Thai Chicken Linguini), because it is way less labor-intensive than the skewers. I chose this recipe to use up a jar of chunky coconut peanut butter that was nearing expiration. I had to microwave the PB for 40 seconds to soften it and make it easier to mix with the rest of the ingredients. Used what I had in the pantry and substituted 1 can diced tomatoes with green chile instead of salsa(did not have any). Omitted salt (used lite soy sauce) and green bell pepper (didn't have any). Followed the rest of the ingredients to make the sauce. I sauteed the thinly sliced chicken breast, julienned carrots and broccoli in a wok before adding the sauce. We love spicy hot, so I added some cayenne powder, chili powder, red pepper flakes, hot sauce, more black pepper... I found that it took a lot more than the usual amount of spices to get the heat level up. My husband came to the rescue by adding some habanero sauce that finally took the heat level to (only) 4/10. Served over jasmine rice. We would make this again, but I might use French cut (fresh) green beans next time instead of broccoli. I think the broccoli's texture does not go with the rest of the dish. And if I was using creamy peanut butter, I would sprinkle crushed roasted peanuts on top.

Healthy Coconut Oatmeal

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2012
Easy to make. My husband found this recipe and follows the measurements exactly without deviation. I would love more cranberries in it, but hey, I'm not doing the cooking. I make up for it with lots of honey. The yogurt makes it even yummier! We have this 2-3x/week for breakfast the past 2 months. A great way to eat my fiber. I never liked plain oatmeal, but I find myself asking him to make this rather than eggs in the morning. Great husband too. :-)

Yummy Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2013
Made the original recipe with 4 oz of fresh green chile peppers, filled one (9 in) pie crust and 3/4 of another pie crust. Delicious as is, at about level 2-3 heat. My husband and I like it hotter, so the next try we tried 5 oz of jalapeno peppers, and 5 oz frozen spinach (liquid squeezed out). We also went half and half on bacon and ham. Even better, with more texture and deep green color from the spinach. The third try, we did not have bacon, but used packaged pre-cut cubed ham, put 6 oz of jalapeno peppers and a full bag (10oz) of the frozen spinach, without changes to the rest of the ingredients, it totally filled 2 (9 inch deep dish) pie shells perfectly without overflowing. Delicious! My husband thinks the bacon flavor is better than ham though I think they are interchangeable, as the ham lets the cheesy/spicy taste shine.

Oatmeal Pancakes II

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
Made it with 1 cup oatmeal ground to powder in the ultimate chopper (no flour). Followed the rest of the ingredients, but used 2 tbsp maple sugar. Pureed 1 banana and 1 small red apple in the ultimate chopper, and used a hand mixer to mix it in. Added 2 tbsp walnuts, 2 tbsp coconut flakes, and made a couple of pancakes with this mix, added chocolate chips to a batch, and then cranberries to the last batch. We are able to make 7-8 smaller pancakes with this recipe, and have done this 4x already. It helps to let it stand 20 minutes before cooking. And it does burn faster than the usual pancake. We use a crepe maker/griddle (CucinaPro) for ease of turning. The banana/apple puree in the mixture makes it moist and just soooo good and sweet enough not to need additional syrup/fruit preserves. I did not particularly care for the chocolate chips (too sweet!), but the cranberries are perfect. Thank you for this recipe! My husband states that anybody would be crazy to go back to flour pancakes after having these "oatcakes!"

Colleen's Slow Cooker Jambalaya

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
Very flavorful! Needed a tsp more of oregano and added a bit more cayenne because we like it hotter, but followed the recipe as written. We used the high setting because we started this late. Very good! Making it again today.

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
I removed the seeds from the tomatoes to make it less watery. Very good salsa!

Spicy Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 22, 2013
Followed all directions and the ingredients except: 1) used 1 habanero pepper instead of jalapeno, 2) did not use the green onions, 3)used green peas instead of snap peas 4) chicken breast instead of thighs, because the above were the ones we had on hand. I will use the habanero again for this recipe, I think it is a more flavorful heat than jalapeno. Will get green onions next time for more texture/flavor. It tastes like Chinese take-out orange chicken minus the calorific batter around the chicken and it is truly non-greasy!!! Loved it!!! But I am taking 1 star off because the recommended length of cooking the chicken made it dry and overcooked. But I will make it again when I have a hankering for Chinese food without the extra calories.

Coconut Chicken Stir Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2013
Made it according to directions. I liked the cumin seeds in addition to ground cumin, it was very fragrant while cooking. However, when we ate it, it felt like it was lacking in depth of flavor and texture. I felt like I was eating curry that was just short of good. The following night we made chicken curry again, fried the cumin seeds, but added Mae Ploy red chili paste (has lemongrass), Mae Ploy green chili paste (already has ginger), with green and red bell peppers, green beans, carrots, coco milk, and added the honey and a dash of cayenne. Turned out to be more flavorful with heat level 4/10.

Greasy and sweet! It needs something else to balance the flavor. Not ever making it again.

Chocolate Banana Oatmeal Porridge

Reviewed: Mar. 16, 2013
I couldn't finish my bowl. I love(!) chocolate porridge, and banana with nutella, so I was expecting to love this. But this combination was just not to my taste.
