The Perfect Mai Tai

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2011
This was exactly what we were looking for. One thing that may help some (especially in the pocketbook area) is to make your own almond syrup. After striking out at several stores I I checked the ingredients in the vanilla syrup and then made my own. The vanilla syrups said that they only had vanilla extract, water and sugar... heck I can make that for a almond flavored syrup. I just doubled my batch that I made for my simple syrup and added almond extract. I made it kind of weak given the recipe, but the taste is the same, and it is way cheaper than a bottle of syrup.

Chunky Rhubarb Applesauce

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2010
This was a really simple recipe that my whole family enjoyed. I do agree with the other reviews that suggested decreasing the cooking time by half. I just cooked it until the apples were fork tender. The rhubarb was well past tender by then.

Sweet and Sour Greens

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
This was very yummy. My husband loved it and he can be pretty picky. I have been growing collard greens in my garden this year so we have tried quite a few recipes and my favorite are the ones that have a little sweet sour or bacon... this is the best of both worlds.

Pecan Breaded Chicken Breasts

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2011
I have made this twice now and the trick is too blend the four, pecans, and salt in a food processor. The pecans get coated perfectly in the flour and the nuts stay on the chicken much more than chopping the pecans and mixing them by had later. Otherwise the recipe is amazing and my entire family loves it

Sweet and Tangy Sauteed Collard Greens

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2011
My husband and I both like the recipe especially the dressing, but I will say that I don't think I cooked the greens enough as they were still hard to chew (be warned). I also used about 1/2 the butter, just because of the fat involved.

Cajun Crawfish and Shrimp Etouffe

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
This was a great recipe, but my friend has one that is better (he won't share). His has cream in it and I may try to add it to this next time I crave Etouffe to see the result.

Fresh Semolina and Egg Pasta

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2011
This was my first homemade pasta. Everyone greedily ate my pasta up with only a clam/butter/garlic sauce on it. It definitely is harder than regular pasta, but so worth the work.

Sweet Potato and Apple Casserole

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2011
This was a great recipe. The only difference that I had was that I baked my sweet potatoes skins on in the oven at 400 until they were soft, then peeled and cut them. I used a granny smith apple (all that I had in the house) and I think a sweeter apple would have been better. Everyone in the family loved it though. Thanks for sharing.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2011
So yummy. I ruined my diet on these cupcakes that I made for my daughters birthday. I was searching for a recipe that would taste great and be easy to decorate with. This was perfect.

Honey Coconut Salmon

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
There is way too much butter in this recipe. You could easily cut the ingredients by half (except the coconut, that is the best part!) and have plenty for your recipe. I'm giving it 3 stars because only half of my family liked it.

Cinnamon Rice with Apples

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2011
This was a pretty good recipe but I found that I had to add water to my rice in order to make my rice cook fully. Additionally I did think it was just a little too sweet. I will likely make it again with pork chops, but will reduce the apple juice.

Beer Bread I

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2010
I tried this with some blueberry beer that I bought on accident (that will teach me to pay attention to labels), but it actually makes it taste of blueberries. And it was very good. I am thinking of making another batch with blueberries in it.

Zippy Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: May 12, 2011
This was a great recipe. I was a little intimidated with the jalapeño so I used an anaheim pepper, but my husband who hates cucumbers loved this because of all the flavors that it has. Next time I am going to sear some tuna and serve this as the side.

Coconut Poke Cake

Reviewed: May 9, 2011
I made this for mother's day and it was a huge hit with my extended family. I made my own whipped cream and I toasted the coconut to make it a little prettier, but changed nothing else. It was a beautiful cake. I will say though that I did have a hard time taking it out of the pans after it had been soaking in the coconut cream mixture, but as the whipped cream covered the small blemishes it was okay.

Orange Kiss-Me Cake

Reviewed: May 5, 2011
This is a great cake full of lots of flavor, with the added benefit that my family of small kids believe that they have to kiss me to get a piece of cake! Thanks for posting it.

Roasted Beet Wedges

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
Personally beets are not my thing, but given that my 3 and 5 year old actually ate their beets I thought it was worthy of the 4 stars. I did add one thing. I sprinkled some feta cheese on top after the beets were out of the oven. I thought that the saltiness of the cheese really made them taste better, although they were fine without it.
