Dill Pickle Meatloaf

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
My first meatloaf ever-- so easy and tasty. My husband kept saying how delicious this was. I didn't have Worcestershire (SP?) sauce, so I instead added a bit of onion soup powder to the meat and the sauce on top to flavor. I didn't add any extra salt because I was using very salty (Israeli) pickles. I cooked this in a long loaf pan, and I knew it was done when the meatloaf pulled away from the ends of the pan. (I'm not sure if it's supposed to do that, but the meatloaf itself tasted perfect!) I'll definitely be making this again!! I was so impressed by the flavor... I would never have known the meatloaf had pickles in it, but it definitely has a little "zing." Also, I like the fact that there is no added cheese or oil, so this is at least marginally healthy! I served with mashed potatoes and sauteed green beans with garlic... a delicious and easy all-American dinner. :)

Costas French Market Doughnuts (Beignets)

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2008
These brought me back to my honeymoon in New Orleans! So light, melt-in-your-mouth delicious. They're good the first day, but AMAZING right out of the pan. I agree that this recipe makes a TON-- next time I'll cut it in half at least. I didn't have shortening so I used butter, and I didn't have evaporated milk so I used water and "coffee whitener" (that creamer powder). I also added in about a tsp of vanilla as someone else suggested. I was concerned at first about rolling out the dough so thin, but it puffed up a huge amount while being fried. To dust with powdered sugar, I lined a tupperware container with paper towels, put in some of the fresh beignets and powdered sugar, and shook the whole thing. It worked beautifully and was a great way to transport as well. These will be a new chanukah tradition in our family!

Pan Seared Salmon II

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2007
This salmon was delicious-- browned on the outside, moist on the inside, and surprisingly flavorful. I don't think I'd call it "spicy" with bell peppers (I could imagine that hot peppers could be substituted for some fire) but I liked it as it is. I made some changes: I cooked my salmon and peppers in the same skillet (first the salmon, then the peppers) and the same olive oil-- this helped the flavors mingle. I also sprinkled kosher salt and fresh ground pepper on the salmon before searing it. Finally, I crushed three cloves of garlic and put them right into the olive oil. I really liked the flavor this lent. The best thing about this recipe was how quick it was: the salmon took about 5 minutes to cook, and was very flavorful without ever marinating!

Raspberry Pie I

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2007
This was the best black raspberry pie I or anyone eating it has ever tasted!! I used the basic flaky pie crust recipie (doubled) from this site and it came out flaky and delicious. I brushed the top with egg white and sprinkled it with sugar, which made it gorgeous. I only had tapioca flour, so I used 3 TB of it and 2 TB of corn starch. I also added about a half teaspoon of cinnamon. This recipe is forgiving, too, because I forgot to turn the oven down from 425 degrees. Altogether, AMAZING!!!
