Vegetarian Bibimbap

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2013
Bibimbap is one of my favorite foods on the planet but I have never tried to make it at home before. This recipe made it both easy and delicious! I didn't bother to fry the rice -- just served the veggies over some hot, freshly-cooked basmati. A generous squeeze of Sriracha on top of my egg, and I was a very happy camper indeed. I'll definitely make this recipe again.

Sweet Potato Pie VII

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2013
I've never made a sweet potato pie before -- actually, I'm not even sure I've ever tasted one -- but this was hands-down one of the BEST pies I've ever made or eaten. Easy to make, too! I used freshly-cooked and mashed sweet potatoes from my farmer's market, and the pie came out out light and fluffy and not-too-sweet, and just...WOW. I may never made a pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving again now that I've had this. :)

Linguine Pasta with Shrimp and Tomatoes

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2012
I made this recipe as written with the exception of simply cooking the shrimp in the sauce, which worked out just fine. (I also added a little red pepper flakes & Parmesan to the top when it was done for some extra kick.) The fresh tomatoes are really what makes this special -- it's an easy, affordable recipe that takes relatively little time to make, but tastes like it came from my local Italian restaurant. Brava!

Sour Cream Gooseberry Pie

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
I agree with the other reviewers who suggest using 2C of gooseberries and lessening the sugar to about 3/4C. With that slight alteration, this is as delicious a tart pie as you'll ever eat! I made two of them this summer and they were both gone in a flash. :)

Quiche Lorraine II

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2011
I followed the recipe as written except for adding an extra egg (mine were pretty small) and not pre-baking the crust. My overall cook time was much longer than expected, though -- maybe my oven is flaky, but I baked the quiche at 350 for 70 minutes before the mixture set and browned up nicely. That aside, it tasted just great!

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup II

Reviewed: May 17, 2011
I followed the recipe exactly, but for adding two peeled, diced red potatoes to the asparagus when cooking; I'd seen this ingredient in a similar recipe and thought it might add a bit more body to the soup. The finished soup was light, fresh, and a perfect companion to some crusty bread, a glass of Sauvignon Blanc, and a spring evening. It's easy to make on a weeknight, yet elegant enough to serve at a dinner party. Wonderful!

Baked Ham with Maple Glaze

Reviewed: Apr. 25, 2011
I made this for Easter dinner and it was fantastic -- all of my guests raved about it (even the ones who aren't all that crazy about ham). The meat was incredibly juicy and the glaze gave it enough sweetness and tang, but not too much. I don't have a decent roasting pan, so I just laid my ham cut-side down on a small rack in a foil-lined broiler pan, and it worked just fine. My ham was eight pounds, so I increased all of the ingredients by 50% and extended the cooking time accordingly. Once the meat thermometer topped 130, I took the ham out to rest for about 20 minutes. I'll definitely make this again, hopefully well before next Easter!

Bread Machine Rolls

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2011
I'd never used the dough cycle on my bread machine before, but it worked just fine with this recipe. I used olive oil instead of butter, and brushed melted butter over the finished rolls rather than use an egg wash. I got twelve very generously-sized rolls out of the recipe, and they came out dense and chewy like the ones at my favorite Chinese restaurant. I set butter out on the table, but nobody used it because the rolls tasted buttery enough already. I often prefer a crisp crust on my dinner rolls, but my husband loved these exactly as they were. I'll definitely make them again, perhaps trying them with poppyseeds sprinkled on top.

Traditional White Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2011
I switched out olive oil for the lard and layered the ingredients in my bread machine. The loaf was crisp outside and tender inside -- the taste and texture were both wonderful. (I brushed it with 1 T. of melted butter right after it was done for extra flavor.) I devoured four big slices before I managed to wrap it up and put it away! Assuming I can control myself better next time, I will definitely make this again.... :)

Basic Indian Curry with Paneer

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2010
A good, solid recipe that's easily adaptable to whatever veggies you happen to have on hand. I used fresh paneer (easy to make at home if you can't find it) and that really gave the dish a fresh, homemade taste. It's a mild dish, so I added some cracked red pepper at the end just to bump up the heat a bit. Otherwise, I made it as written and it came out perfectly.

Maritime Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2010
I've rarely baked with blueberries, but this recipe might get me to change that. I made this exactly as described and it turned out just beautifully -- my husband and I finished the whole pan in less than three days. The texture is more like a coffeecake than a crisp or cobbler, and the leftovers (if there are any) reheat very well. I'll definitely make this again, probably for a holiday breakfast.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2010
This is quite simply the best roast chicken I have ever made. Moist, flavorful, and practically foolproof. (I've only ever made one chicken at a time, though, so I just halve all the ingredients.) I don't typically have white pepper on hand, but I love spicy foods, so I just double up on the cayenne. Magical!
