Moroccan Vegetable Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
Expected to like this more than I actually did. Tasted pretty good but I got tired of it quickly. Husband not keen either. This was ok but I wouldn't make it again. Thanks anyway!

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2012
I am a terrible baker, but these came out PERFECT. Didn't deviate from the recipe at all, although I baked the first batch for 12 minutes and they were a bit too dry and crumbly; did the second batch for 9 minutes, and they were exactly as we like them. Loved that they weren't too sweet, and also really enjoyed the texture of the oatmeal. Would be interested to make them with crunchy peanut butter next time. Thanks so much, Joan!

Caramelized Spicy Pumpkin Seeds

Reviewed: Oct. 20, 2012
Can't say I was ever a huge pumpkin seeds fan until I tried this recipe. Holy cow, they are so addictive. Definitely agree that brown sugar is the way to go. Good stuff! Thanks, Theresa!

Irish Potato and Chive Casserole

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
Absolutely disgracefully delicious. In a pathetic attempt to make it less horrible for you, I halve the amount of cream cheese. This then allows me to justify sprinkling a couple of handfuls of grated extra-sharp Cheddar cheese on top. Plan on making it this Thanksgiving as it will HORRIFY my health-conscious MIL. Heh!

Curry Coleslaw

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
I expected to like this much more than I actually did. I kept thinking the dressing would be better suited to a potato salad? Think I might try that, and will omit the peanuts. Thanks anyway!

Empire Biscuits

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
This was definitely one of the most fun "recipes from home" that I've made with my little girl. On the one hand, they were rather a lot of work, it was frustrating how easily they broke when lifting them off the cookie sheet, and I made them WAY too big, but Lily had a ball sandwiching them together, drizzling them with icing, and adding the cherry! Only change I made was to use 3c a.p. flour and 1c of Bird's custard powder as another reviewer suggested. Not sure I'll make them again, but we had a blast putting them together. Thanks so much, Marcie!

Kalbi (Korean BBQ Short Ribs)

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
Marinated the ribs for 3 days as another reviewer recommended. Also upped the amount of garlic. These turned out AMAZING - so much flavor, and the meat was fall-off-the-bone tender. So good! Thanks, CC!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2012
Super easy and pretty dang good. You'll probably have to tweak the seasonings quite a bit, but this is a really good basic recipe. I like to saute some finely diced white onion and a jalapeno or two in the oil before adding the flour and chili powder. A little bit of fresh oregano is nice too. Thanks!

Barbequed Potato and Garlic Scape Packets

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
I love really really easy recipes that taste absolutely amazing - this is definitely one of them. Cut back on the olive oil, and added a small knob of butter to each packet. Spuds took about 30 minutes to be cooked all the way through Delicious! PS Don't forget to slice the flower heads off the scapes as well.

Thai Cucumber Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 1, 2012
Initially made it as written, and it was ok. Actually that's not true, the only change I made was to use lemon juice instead of lemon grass (not the same I know, but I live 25 miles from the nearest Asian market, and I had all the other ingredients.) However, after playing around with the ingredients, this ended up being easily one of the best soups I have ever made. I think the biggest improvement was adding a can of coconut cream -definitely recommend that! I also did my usual thing of using my immersion stick blender on half of the soup. Really awesome! Thanks, Dayna!

Dilly Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Been making this a couple of times a week since my dill is growing like crazy in the garden. Made as written, it's way too sweet, the cuke slices get floppy, and there's not enough dill flavor. I halve the sugar, cut the cucumbers quite thickly, double the dill, and also add some very finely chopped mint. Very refreshing, and also works really well in homemade gyro sandwiches.

Barbecued Short Ribs

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
First time cooking beef short ribs. Made it pretty much as written but thought that the sauce was lacking. Ended up adding a good amount of our fave bbq sauce to the mix - a big improvement. Really liked the end result but wished that they were a bit more sticky and/or crispier. Will have tioo experiment a bit next time. Thanks, Margery!

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
Since I'm not a fan of parsley, and I'd never even tasted quinoa before, I wasn't sure how this would turn out. Have to say that I absolutely LOVE this super easy, super flavorful, refreshing little salad! Made it exactly as written, and it was superb. Next time I think I'll use a combination of parsley and mint, and add some goat's cheese or feta. Thanks so much!

Autumn Glazed Pork Chops

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
I'm not a big fan of meat/fruit combos, but I quite enjoyed this. Like others, I used orange juice instead of concentrate. Chops came out tender and succulent. Nice change from the usual boring baked pork chops with mushrooms gravy. Two year old daughter loved it too! Thanks!

Lime Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
This was ok. Cut way back on the amount of butter (1 cup??!), and pounded the chicken flat so that the strips would cook quicker and the garlic wouldn't burn. If I were to make this again, I'd marinate the chicken in the lime juice. Thanks anyway!

Cheesy Nacho Bake

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2012
Great recipe for when you're low on groceries and/or don't have much time in the kitchen. I added a bit of diced onion to the meat in the skillet. Topped it with a handful of Mexican cheese blend, and also some crumbled queso fresco. Did the job. Thanks!

Lemon Chicken I

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
This is a little bit on the bland side for me, but my 26 month old absolutely loves it (especially the "juice" as she calls it.) I make it with bone-in chicken pieces (thighs usually), and I chop the onion and bell pepper into quite large chunks so that they don't get overcooked and mushy. We have it with steamed broccoli and egg noodles. My little one gives it two thumbs up! Thanks, Audrey!

Pickled Bologna

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
Made this after stumbling across yet another 2 lb tube of bologna in the freezer. Husband had been reminiscing about the pickled bologna his best friend's mom made for them when he was a kid. I thought it sounded revolting, but I gave it a try anyway. Have to say that while it's not up there with my all-time favorite things to snack on, it IS pretty darn good. I made it with apple cider vinegar and fresh sliced jalapenos. Haven't reached the 90 day mark yet but I agree that it definitely gets better the longer you let it steep. We have it summer sausage-style with cheese and crackers. Good stuff. Thanks!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
I'm not much of a baker but these turned out really well. Since my cookies always end up flattening out and spreading quite a bit, I didn't press them down with a fork. I took them out after 10 minutes, and they were still really gooey and floppy, but they firmed out nicely while retaining a chewy center. My only minor complaint is that they weren't quite sweet enough for me, so next time I will add some raisins or choc chips. Really good though. Thanks!

Amazing Spicy Grilled Shrimp

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2012
Amazing is right! Cut back on the sesame oil, and used cilantro instead of parsley (hate parsley). Used sriracha for the hot sauce, and kinda wished I'd used lime juice instead of lemon - will do that next time. Marinated for 12 hours which was perfect for us - imparted tons of flavor, and a really nice spicy kick. Thanks for an easy but super flavorsome recipe, Pat!
