Chef John's Five-Spice Carrots

Reviewed: Jun. 16, 2014
No Chinese five-spice powder on hand? Here is what I learned about this ingredient while searching for a substitute. Different five-spice blends use various spices. In his video, Chef John makes jokes about his jar listing seven ingredients. The term "FIVE SPICE" actually refers to the five flavors the blend yields: sweet, sour, bitter, pungent, and salty. A workable substitute is 1/8 teaspoon each ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground ginger, black pepper, and anise OR fennel seeds.

Sun's Korean Marinating Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2012
I used this marinade on Trader Joe's Mahi Mahi pieces. (A great fish bargain, btw.) It tasted authentic, and my husband thought I had used bottled marinade. I used low sodium soy sauce and still found it a bit salty, so I will reduce the amount next time. Large pieces of meat or fish may absorb less of the marinade, though. I served it with TJ Kimchee, white rice and steamed pea pods.

Crispy Meatballs

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
These meatballs are yummy, and have several things going for them: 1. They are KOSHER, which other recipes made with milk or parmesan cheese are not. 2. They are GLUTEN FREEE, which other recipes that call for breadcrumbs are not. 3. They are baked in the oven rather than fried, so they have less added fat. EXCELLENT!

Lime-Marinated Mahi Mahi

Reviewed: May 1, 2012
I made this with much less oil--1/4 cup, along with 2 cloves garlic, 1/8 t pepper, 1/4 t cayenne, the juice of 2 limes (4T), and 1/4 t zest. Followed the suggestion of one reviewer and placed it all in a hot skillet. YUM! PERFECT!

Glazed Pearl Onions with Raisins and Almonds

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2012
I made this unusual recipe for a book club pot luck dinner. We read Tulipomania about the Dutch tulip craze of the 1600s and how some people mistakenly ate valuable tulip bulbs thinking they were onions. It was a PERFECT recipe to this event and was a hit. I sprinkled some dried parsley and snipped chives on top for a bit of color, and I added a 1/2 t of garlic powder. Maybe next time will add a clove of minced garlic at the start of the simmering.

Lemon Chicken with Broccoli

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2012
Great recipe. Trader Joe's carries a low sodium chicken broth concentrate that is delicious--more intense, less salty flavor.

Best Ever Split Pea

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2012
True to it's name: BEST EVER! I cooked this in a crock pot and used a stick blender to puree before serving. Turned out great!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 20, 2012
OUTSTANDING! I dredged the chicken in cornstarch, and deglazed the pan with a bit of sherry and chicken broth. One tablespoon of hot sauce (habenero) was plenty.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2011
I did not care for this recipe. It created too much liquid and basically boiled the chicken, boiling away any flavor. The resulting juice was bland and the chicken fell apart and I had to fish out all the bones. I could have added salt and pretended it was a soup, but it tasted icky.

Caribbean Jerk Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2010
Tasty with some nice heat. I'm happy for a new way to use the jerk sauce that seems to sit in my fridge for ages. I used boneless chicken thighs, and added extra veggies to the stir fry: Celery, carrots and broccoli. I had hoisin sauce on hand and used it in place of the plum sauce, and omitted the peanuts. Yum!

Tasty Collard Greens

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Kosher Collards! I could feed these to my Jewish husband because there is no pork in them. One of my black friends exclaimed that they were better than his mother's. Is there a higher compliment?

Roasted Rack of Lamb

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
Incredibly delicious! I read the reviews and anticipated it taking longer than stated, but after my third test with the meat thermometer I simply cut them apart and finished them up in a skillet.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2009
WOW! I followed lots of the good advice to make this great recipe even better, and a few of my own twists: *Increased flour to 2 1/2 cups *Used OJ instead of water *Increased cinnamon to a full teaspoon *Added 1 teaspoon vanilla *Used butter (had it in the house) *Used brown sugar in place of white *Added 1/4 teaspoon almond extract *Added a pinch of nutmeg *Chilled dough and used a melon baller for uniform size. *Simply dipped the tops of the dough balls in colored sugar/Halloween sprinkles. FANTASTIC results!

Radish Top Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2009
This delicious soup was rich and creamy tasting even without the cream. I simply added extra broth after it was blended to adjust the thickness. I also added 3/4 cup of chopped celery and an extra potato to the cooking pot, along with a pinch each of dried parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. (Sing while you add these!) I was afraid at first to tell my teenaged son what I was making for dinner, but he helped, and the whole family loved the results.

Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2003
This is a great recipe! I've solved the pan size/baking time questions by baking it in a single bundt pan--no worries about underbaked center. This bacic recipe is good as is, and works for endless variaitons. The latest one I baked with 1/2 cup each of walnuts, raisins, and shredded coconut. YUM!

Precious Pineapple Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2003
This cake turned out great! I used this easy recipe in a two-layer cake that was one layer coconut cake and one layer of this precious pineapple. Voila--a pina-colada! The pineapple taste is subtle but definite. The cake was for a large party, so I doubled the recipe with no problems. I left out the pecans, and didn't miss them. Moist and yummy!

Chicken Pot Pie I

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2003
I made a low-fat version by using Campbell's low fat cream of chicken soup. I also followed some of the other suggestions and added some extras: chopped onion, garlic, celery and potato lightly sauteed then added to frozen mixed veggies. My whole family enjoyed this great dish. Great on a cold winter night.

Baby Food Cake I

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2003
My friend requested a raspberry birthday cake, so I made this recipe and substitued a can of Solo red raspberry filling for the baby food. I also reduced the oil to 1/2 cup. The results were pretty good--a nice moist cake with subtle fruit taste. Thanks Lori!

Cranberry BBQ Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2003
I adapated this recipe for my crock pot--which was super easy and pretty good. I used two pounds of skinless/boneless chicken thighs, and cut them up a bit. I put them right in the pot with the other ingredients, and included two cloves of minced garlic. Cooked on low for six hours. I added about 1 cup of frozen peas just a few minutes before serving, and served it with white rice. Very nice with a tossed salad!
