Thai Pineapple Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2015
A++. My dear husband [DH] loves all things Thai, and this is no exception. I left out the bamboo shoots, but ADDED Julianne baby carrots and canned Asian style straw mushrooms. Also ADDED finely minced ginger root, FRESH diced pineapple, and topped with thinly sliced green onions and chopped fresh cilantro. I used 3 chicken breasts instead of 2 [sauteed lightly before adding veggies], but used only 1 can of coconut milk. There was just enough fluid. I had red curry PASTE so ~1/4c was all I used, but it could have used more. Halved the rice recipe and added chicken broth instead of water to the rice to add flavor. My modifications made 6+ hearty meals, plenty enough for seconds and four lunch leftovers for work this week. I definitely would make this again.

Sauceless Garden Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2013
Excellent, with modifications for what I had on hand. Used low-fat mozzarella cheese, low-fat cottage cheese mixed with an egg, instead of feta. Shredded the zucchini. Didn't have spinach or mushrooms (wish I did) so used finely shredded carrots, celery and finely chopped green peppers. Added dry spices: Italian oregano herbs, basil and then topped dish with thinly sliced green onions & Parmesan cheese. Yummy and satisfying.

Blueberry Turnovers

Reviewed: Mar. 31, 2013
OK, So I had Easter morning house guests and crescent rolls. Saw this recipe and substituted chopped fresh strawberries and mini choc chips. No frosting, just a dusting of granulated sugar. They were excellent, but not close to the recipe posted her. If I had blueberries I would have tried that.

Creamiest Vegan Corn Chowder

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2013
V. Good soup, would make again. Substituted 2 finely minced leeks for the onion [had them on hand], used chicken broth and added 1T granulated chicken broth. Used frozen corn [only 2cups]. Skipped the nuts and yeast [didn't have them]. Skipped the part about blending some in blender as it was thick and creamy enough. Added Salt and Pepper to taste and topped with shredded sharp cheddar cheese.With modifications this did not make more than 6 hearty bowls. Chunky and satisfying!

Slow-Cooker Pork and Apple Curry

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
This is definitely a saver. Cooked on HIGH 4.5hrs. Added 1/3c golden raisins to recipe. Used jar garlic & ginger, doubled amount to my liking. Added 1/8c jar chopped hot green chili & 1Tb dried red chili flakes. Used apple juice instead of orange juice, + 1tsp lemon Juice to keep apples from turning brown. Added 2Tb Mandarin HOT curry powder and a full liquid packet of commercially prepared HOT curry sauce [also found in a block form] (buy in Asian markets, Sunflower and Whole Foods). Used a very large pork loin cut up. Added 1/3 cup coconut milk mixed with 2T flour to thicken last 30 min. of cooking time. Served over rustic-style long-grain rice. Topped with sliced raw green onions, dark raisins and coarsely chopped salted cashews (didn't have any peanuts). Looking forward to tomorrow's leftovers. Curry is even better the second day.

Oatmeal Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
Oh my, these REALLY are 5 star, A+ cookies! My young-adult daughter, who doesn't usually care for oatmeal cookies, went back for 3rds. We added a little extra flour for high altitude & cooked 10-11 min. Used instant oatmeal. Don't Pam spray the cookie sheet (they will spread out too much). These bake up super nice like the picture ... starting with the very first tray out of the oven. I would like to see if they freeze well, but doubt we'll have any leftovers to freeze.

Stuffed Jalapeno Firecrackers

Reviewed: Apr. 9, 2011
OK, rule of thumb, the smaller the Jalapeno, the hotter it is. Use gloves to seed the peppers, else you get the oils on your hands and hurt for some time. I cut strips of bacon in half before wrapping. I sprinkled onion and garlic powder and dried cilantro over the cream cheese before wrapping. Did this in a toaster over on broil.
