My Fly Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2012
Fantastic! I did make a few changes. Since I didn't have the mirin, I substituted a splash of a slightly dry, tart Reisling wine. I added an additional garlic clove, 1 teaspoon of sugar, and another tablespoon of ginger. I also added more vegetables - red cabbage, snow peas, and carrots, and some raw peanuts. Very fresh and not overly sweet or salty. I made plenty to have left overs but my kids had third helpings and polished off the entire entree.

Apple Goat Cheese Bruschetta

Reviewed: Oct. 8, 2014
Simple, fresh and delicious! We used the grill, grilling both sides (took just two minutes per side) for beautiful grill marks. Then placed bread on pan and added tomato mixture. Followed the rest of recipe except to omit the garlic (I can't eat it raw). Very yummy. The tomato mixture is also great on top of chicken parmesan. It was beautiful and elevated the dinner to restaurant quality.

Homemade Fresh Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2013
Love this yummy, easy recipe! I followed some reviewers' advice and added 3/4 cup more pumpkin and extra spices (a little Allspice, doubled the cinnamon). The result was two very full, very yummy pumpkin pies. Thank you all!

Mango Walnut Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 11, 2013
This salad is a beautiful combination I would not have put together myself. I'm so glad I tried it! (Have to admit, I left out the carrot - the color just didn't seem right in this beautiful salad). We don't like our salads dry so mixed up a few tablespoons of balsamic vinegar with a few teaspoons of brown sugar, dash of salt and pepper, to taste. Wonderful tangy sweet salad. Edit - we tried spinach and mixed greens and liked it even better! I would highly recommend using those instead of red leaf lettuce.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: May 19, 2014
True rotisserie chicken taste! I chose to use pieces, as another cook suggested. I marinated them overnight and cooked them covered with foil for 1 hour at 300, then uncovered for 30 minutes. They were a feast for the nose and eyes! I attempted to make gravy and for the first time ever I was successful! It was so incredibly easy and I didn't have to season it or anything. We served it with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Really, really good. I have to agree with another comment that I think its the cooking method, not the seasonings that make all the difference. My husband has already asked me to make it again! Thanks for the amazing recipe!

Coconut Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2013
Scrumptious! I made this for my mom's birthday and everyone raved about it! The pound cake was moist and just the right density. The crisp outside was a wonderful surprise. Awesome recipe! Every year my mom requests a coconut cake for her birthday. Usually I make some kind of layered coconut cake with frosting. This year I wanted something different so I tried this recipe. I'm so glad I did! We are going to make this again and again and again! Thanks to all the reviewers who suggested adding a little more coconut extract. We love coconut so I doubled the amount in the cake and in the glaze. Then I toasted some coconut and sprinkled it on top when the glaze was still warm. I left it overnight and served it the next day since many said it was better the next day. I also put the coconut into the food processor before adding it to the cake and I substituted buttermilk for the milk because we love our pound cakes heavy. YUM! I'm looking forward to tying different things with this recipe - like adding pineapple.

Pumpkin Muffins with Streusel Topping

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
Fantastic! These muffins are light but full of flavor. I have made these muffins three times, each time varying the amounts of white vs. brown sugar, flour vs. oats and oil vs. applesauce. Each time they have come out incredibly delicious! My favorite was using only 1 cup brown sugar, 1 cup oats and cutting down flour by 1/2 cup, using 1/2 cup oil and 2/3 cup applesauce. I did not have pie spice so I made my own (see Allrecipes Pumpkin Pie spice). We love these muffins and will continue to make them again and again! Thank you for such an incredible recipe!

Grilled Squash with Piquant Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2013
Five stars for the grilled squash. We loved it, without the sauce. The sauce is not great. I decided to switch the amounts of yogurt and mayonnaise and it was much better. Did not add taco sauce but added Asian chili sauce. Very light and tangy. We put it on grilled chicken marinated in a yogurt & lemon sauce. Very good.

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2013
This meat is amazing! My family loves it on torillas right out of the crock pot. I use the leftovers with barbeque sauce on buns and in tamales. I've made this recipe about 10 times and my kids always rave about it. I double the seasoning, and delete the cinnamon, like others recommended. (Mexican cinnamon is much milder than the kind we have in our stores) I don't always braise the meat, only if I have time and want to put it on tortillas. Otherwise, I just throw it all in the crock pot and let it work its magic. This meat smells wonderful while it is cooking. If you are looking for a versatile and easy recipe for pork - try this one. You won't be sorry. Oh - and I did try putting the meat into the oven to give it an "authentic" taste, as some have suggested. The meat came out chewy and hard to eat. Why ruin a good thing? Its fantastic right out of the pot. Thanks you for the amazing recipe! PS - if you are making tamales, use the juice for making the masa dough. You will make the best tamales you have ever eaten!

Tomato Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2013
Yummmm! I don't think I can go back to jar sauce after making this delicious tomato sauce. I made it twice in one week. I did cut down on the amount of tomatoes by half(because that was all I had) and cut down on the pepper as others recommended. I also left out the chili powder just because we don't like it. I added a tsp of dried basil. The tomatoes were very acidic so I added a little extra sugar and 1 tsp baking soda and cooked for 2 hours instead of 1. The sauce was thick and oh-so-yummy! Will be making this again and again!

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2014
Hearty, healthy and delicious! These muffins are great for breakfast, but even better for a quick afternoon snack. I did make them healthier than the original recipe using some suggestions from other cooks. I replaced half of the flour with Whole wheat, substituted 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup honey for white sugar and substituted plain yogurt for the oil. I agree that the muffins were very sticky when they were warm but didn't stick to the paper at all after completely cooled. I will make these again, probably subbing more white flour with oats or flax meal. Thank you for these fantastic muffins!

Flourless Chocolate Brownies

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2014
I have made these brownies several times and love them! No one in my family is gluten free, but we still devour these brownies as quickly as I make them. I would definitely recommend changing almond flour to almond butter. It makes a huge difference in the texture. I also subbed the rice flour for gluten free baking flour and found that also helped with texture. I have also tried one cook's suggestion to only use 2 TBSP butter and 1/4 cup canola oil. That was an amazing brownie, especially when I melted chocolate chips all over the top. I have found the bittersweet chocolate chips a little overwhelming, so I use half bittersweet and half semi-sweet. Thanks for sharing this incredible recipe!

Halibut Supreme

Reviewed: Sep. 16, 2014
This was an unusual sauce for fish, but it works! Everyone from my 8 year old to my husband loved it. It was rich. I did not add the flour. The sauce was thick enough without it and I actually would have liked the sauce to be a little more "saucy". Next time I'll add milk to it so we will have sauce that runs into our rice.

Spinach Stuffed Chicken Breast

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2014
These were delicious! I did have to pound these breasts FLAT. Instead of putting the bacon on the outside, I cooked the bacon and crumbled it into the mixture for the center. I tried cooking them both ways - in the oven and in the skillet. The skillet breasts, cooked in butter, came out much more flavorful. I would make this one again and again!

Zippy Shepherd's Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2012
Ok - I didn't use the curry, but only because my family doesn't like curry. I did everything else as written, and the result was amazing! My kids went back for more until it was gone. Great flavor!
