Thai Spiced Barbecue Shrimp

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2009
Absolutely delicious! Added 2 t. minced fresh ginger...was a nice touch. After pouring out about half the marinade, I sauteed the mixture in a bit of vegetable oil, like a stir fry. (I don't have a grill pan and we didn't want to fire up the charcoal grill.) Will definitely add this to our regular rotation of Asian recipes.

Scandinavian Almond Bars

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
It's been a holiday tradition in my family for years. Everyone who has tried these always asks for the recipe, and they're just scrumptious. I'm an almond fan, so I increase the extract to 1 t.

Wow, I couldn't believe the difference between homemade pesto and the store-bought kind! They are two completely different animals, and this recipe is terrific. I omitted the parsley but added a bit of kosher salt and pepper. Toast the pinenuts dry in a skillet first for even more flavor, and use real parmesan cheese (never the stuff in the green-lidded container). CHRISSME's suggestion for freezing with a bit of olive oil on top was great. This makes a super-quick side dish when added to pasta, with or without a bit of heavy cream.

Tasty Tender Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2008
Like some other reviewers, I made my own Russian dressing (couldn't find it at the store) and reduced the honey to ΒΌ cup. This was my first attempt at pork tenderloin, and I thought the recipe was very tasty! Be careful not to overcook the pork; use an internal thermometer.

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2008
Oh, how I LOVE this recipe! Following other reviews, I add minced fresh ginger & chopped cilantro, and I reduce the oil to 4 T. and sugar to 3 T. I use only 1 1/2 t. chili sauce because I'm wimpy that way! Thicken the sauce with 1 t. cornstarch mixed into 1 c. chicken broth, and stir in 1 T. toasted sesame oil at the end, off heat. Optional add-ins make it even better: shredded napa cabbage, red bell pepper strips, blanched & sliced snowpeas, and/or cooked & cubed chicken. Absolutely delicious!!
