Carrot Coconut Lime Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
Now this is some good soup! I do agree that it needs some salt and pepper, and I cut back on the ginger a bit since 1t a bit much for my taste. I also use canned coconut cream which is way richer than coconut milk - a little goes a long way. Like all soups I make, I find that they are much better if you make them a day ahead. Thanks, sourpony!

Cilantro Tomato Corn Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This is a fantastic recipe for using up left over grilled corn. I also love it because it uses ingredients I always have on hand. I usually make it with olive oil instead of butter, and, if I have it, a splash of fresh lime juice adds some great extra flavor. Quick, easy and inexpensive, not to mention really tasty. Thanks!

Southern Coleslaw

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
I omitted the eggs as I didn't like the idea of them with the other ingredients. Glad I did - this is some really really good slaw. Definitely refrigerate and leave for a few hours before you eat it - it's not nearly as good straight out of the mixing bowl. Thanks!

Chinese Braised Spare Ribs

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
These were very tender but there wasn't a lot of flavor. Apart from doubling up on the seasonings, I don't know how to improve this. Marinate the ribs in something? I won't be making these again. Thanks anyway.

Shrimp Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
This is a bit watery and bland as written, but with a few tweaks it turned out great. I didn't use FF milk - used half regular evaporated milk and half heavy cream instead. Added some roasted garlic to the vegetable mix, and also some Old Bay seasoning. Upped the amount of Worcestershire sauce too. This was a very heaty soup - served it with warm crusty bread. Thanks!

Orange Herb Roasted Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
I'm not a big fan of fruity meat, but this turned out really well. The combination of herbs and citrus was fragrant without being overwhelming. I roasted carrots in with the chicken, and they were also especially tasty. Thanks, Nellie!

Eggnog Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
I agree with the reviewer before me - could barely taste the nogg but the texture was deliciously light and fluffy. Good stuff! Thanks!

Creamy Roasted Parsnip Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2010
Definitely my fave soup recipe of the season so far. I omit the brown sugar and the allspice, and I sometimes throw in some cubed leftover baked potatoes to the puree stage (just use my good old immersion stick blender.) So delicious! Thanks, Alan!

Roasted Curried Chicken with Couscous

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
Lots of ingredients but LOTS of flavor! I used chicken legs and thighs as that's what I had on hand. I omitted the sage (not a fan) and used fresh garlic. I was going to save time by serving it with plain basmati rice but I am SO glad I went with the couscous - really buttery and fragrant! This isn't something I would make regularly but it was definitely nice for a change. Thanks, greennie!

Peach Kuchen

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
I can't get enough of fresh peaches this time of year, so I thought I'd try this as an alternative to peach pie. The only thing I would do differently is to use brown sugar on top. Otherwise, this is great - not at all heavy, and not too sweet. Thanks!

Orange Soy Pork Loin

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
Not bad but not quite as flavorful as I hoped. I didn't bother with the baking bag, just marinated the pork loin for 8 hours, then basted it like crazy. I might try it again but add some teriyaki sauce or something. Thanks anyway!

Cerveza and Lime Marinade for Shrimp and Fish

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
AMAZING! I used it on tilapia and shrimp (marinated for about 12 hours) and the flavor was incredible - really fresh and tangy, but not too overwhelming. Would probably be just as good without the tequila. Five stars!

Refrigerator Pickles

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2010
If you take the advice to halve the amount of sugar, this really is a 5 star recipe. I'm not a big fan of celery seed so I left that out. I made half with dried dill and half with a couple of crushed cloves of garlic - I like the garlic pickles just a little bit more. This is a great way to use up garden cukes. Thanks!

Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
I've lost my favorite tandoori chicken recipe, so I thought I'd give this one a go. I marinated the thighs for 24 hours, but the flavor was way too mild, and was missing something. I guess I'll keep looking. Thanks anyway.

Rosemary Mashed Potatoes and Yams with Garlic and Parmesan

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
I'm not a yam fan but Husband is, and he thought these were just ok. Quite a lot of work for not especially spectacular results. I'll probably make this again with regular potatoes and minus the yams. Oh well. Thanks anyway!

Creamed Corn

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
I made it with fresh corn that I took off the cob. I stuck to the recipe's quantities of liquid, but added more corn until it was the kind of consistency I wanted. This is a super rich dish, and a little goes a long way. Nice for special occasions but not something I'd make on a regular basis. Thanks, Gina!

Lime Fish Tacos

Reviewed: Aug. 18, 2010
I tweaked this a wee bit. I made it with cod, and also added some fresh cilantro and a good pinch of chipotle pepper powder to the sauce. It turned out really good, but next time I will use shredded cabbage instead of lettuce (I had some amazing fish tacos in California which came with cabbage. I really loved the crunch). Thanks, Tammy!

Cheese's Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
One of the best mac and cheeses I've ever made! Apart from using a little more cheese, and also adding some hot English mustard to the cheese sauce, I pretty much made it as written. Very rich and tasty. Thanks!

Zippy Corn on the Cob

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
This was not a hit. The combination of the mustard and the horseradish just didn't work for us. Sorry!

Peanut Butter French Toast

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
This isn't my cup of tea, but Husband loved it! I cut back on the amount of sugar, and upped the vanilla. Served it with some fresh sliced banana. Thanks, Jessiker!
