Classic Minestrone

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2011
Great basic recipe you can tweak according to personal taste and what you have on hand. Personally, we prefer it with kidney beans, but cannelli beans are pretty good. I cut way back on the thyme, and usually use Italian seasoning. Fresh minced garlic and a couple of bay leaves add some nice flavor too. Thanks, Michelle!

Balsamic Roasted Carrots

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
Not bad. Agree that the balsamic really only adds a bit of a twang to the carrots. I made this with some really thick carrots that I halved lengthwise, and they were done in about 45 minutes. Thanks anyway!

Faye's Pulled Barbecue Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2011
This was the first barbecue pork recipe I used after moving to the US. It's pretty good made as written but I now prefer to omit the cayenne, and use chipotle powder instead. I also use V8 juice instead of water for a bit more flavor. Thanks, Faye!

Easy Grilled Lemon Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
I've made this at least 10 times this summer - so easy and it tastes amazing! I tried it with lime juice instead of lemon but didn't like it nearly as much. Also did it on the Foreman grill but it wasn't nearly as good as on the charcoal grill. I marinate it for about 24 hours, and the flavors just pop in your mouth. Even my 19 month old loves it! Thanks!

Beef Brisket with Chipotle Tomatillo Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
I've made this with brisket and with pork tenderloin, and I prefer it with pork. I don't own a pressure cooker so I make it in the crockpot - turns out great. One can of chipotle peppers is really really spicy, so I use about half - still a little too much for me but Husband loves it. (he says the leftovers are even better the next day) Thanks!

Nell's Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
I cannot stop eating this stuff! I agree that you need to toast the almonds and noodles - only takes a few minutes but it makes all the difference! Great by itself but I also really love it with a pan-seared tuna steak (I add a bit of sesame oil to the salad dressing). Thanks!

Braised Rabbit with Mushroom Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
Absolutely phenomenal! The only thing I did differently was to brown the rabbit pieces in bacon fat, and I used half water/ half milk in the sauce. Will definitely make this again, although next time I will probably serve it with mashed potates. Thanks, Bluemonday!

Green Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2011
Really good! Used jalapenos from the garden, and also added the juice of a lime. Is a bit watery initially but it sets up better if you let it sit in the fridge overnight. Thanks!

Jen's Heavenly Egg Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
One of the best egg salads I've ever had! Was skeptical about the lemon juice but it really does work. Ate it with a few leaves of baby arugula on thickly-sliced wheat bread. Wonderful! Looking forward to trying it with avocado. Thanks!

Chinese Steamed White Fish Fillet with Tofu (Cantonese Style)

Reviewed: Jul. 6, 2011
The marinate/sauce was really really good but I didn't much care for the texture of the steamed fish, and the tofu was just blah. Will try it again with baked fish and will omit the tofu altogether. Thanks anyway.

Pork Marinade

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
What a great easy and tangy marinade. The only change I made was to use Splenda instead of sugar (added it a tiny bit at a time) Marinated some boneless pork chops for 24 hours, and they came out great. Husband said he'd like a bit more spiciness next time. Thanks!

Ranch Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
Was worried that the saltines would give the patties a meat loafy texture, but they didn't at all. With a dribble of Ranch dressing plus the usual lettuce, tomato and onion, these were some dang good burgers. Thanks!

Smoked Salmon Pizette

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
I'm not a big fan of smoked salmon (nor capers actually) but these were pretty good. Like others, I made them with toasted mini bagels. I agree though that the sour cream is a bit overwhelming - I'll cut way back next time.

Jamaican Barbecue Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
AMAZING! Tweaked it a little bit (less molasses and thyme, a bit more mustard) and also added a couple of cloves of fresh minced garlic. Had it with grilled chicken breasts and corn on the cob. Looking forward to trying it with ribs! Great recipe. Thanks, Lee Ann!

Cheddar and Macaroni Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
I've made this a couple of times, once as written (really like the crunchiness of the bell pepper and celery) but I prefer it with broccoli instead of peas and celery. Be prepared to add more mayo/ sour cream as it does dry out a lot when you let it sit for 24hrs. Thanks, Karena!

Apple Jack Iowa Pork Chops from Des Moines

Reviewed: Jul. 3, 2011
I cut back on the thyme and used apple juice with a splash of regular brandy. Turned out great - very succulent and flavorful. Sauce was delicious with mashed potatoes. Thanks!

Zucchini Corn Fritters

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2011
Loved these! My 16month old couldn't get enough of them! I usd canned corn as that's what I had on hand, and upped the cumin a little. This recipe makes a TON of batter but the fritters freeze well. Will definitely make them again when fresh corn is at its best. Thanks!

Tuna Fish Cakes

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Not the best tuna cakes ever but definitely not bad. They need a sauce/dip of some kind - I serve them with tartare sauce, or a garlicky tzatziki also works well. Very quick and easy. Thanks!

Spicy Cilantro Pesto

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
Simply amazing! I keep a batch in the fridge, and use it to top salmon or chicken breasts before baking in the oven. Really excellent flavor, and super easy too. Thanks, Amber!

Roasted Sweet Potato and Carrot Puree

Reviewed: Dec. 6, 2010
My 10 month old goes nuts for this! I use a tiny pinch of sugar because they really are pretty sweet already. I also omit the salt and use low-sodium broth. Think I might try adding a little cauliflower, and see how she likes that. Thanks so much!
