Summer Fresh Pasta with Tomatoes and Prosciutto

Reviewed: May 6, 2014
We no longer eat white pasta so I used Bionature 100 % Whole Wheat Spaghettini and it turned out very nicely. I used a larger amount of yellow onions (no shallots available), more garlic cloves & halved grape tomatoes. Next time I will marinate the tomatoes longer than one hour and will try reducing the olive oil a bit. I will definitely make again! Thanks for this easy recipe.

Beef Bulgogi

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2014
Since I always marinate it overnight, I don't fuss much over the slicing of the beef. I cut it as thin as I can with my terrible knives and don't worry about it too much. Make sure all of the sugar dissolves in the marinade before adding it to the beef. I use brown sugar and it takes longer to dissolve. Since I hardly ever buy green onions, I use white or red onions and it works great. I cook it indoors on a very hot pan with very little canola oil. I sautee the meat in batches and really quickly. Since the pan starts getting black, after a few batches (I double the recipe sometimes), I roll a ball of paper towel and quickly clean the pan using kitchen tongs. I don't serve it with traditional sides. Tonight was with quinoa and brocollini, a few weeks ago as fajitas (gasp). Delicious!

Sauteed Apples

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2012
I made this for my daughter as part of her breakfast today (as a treat) and she loved it. It was ready really fast (I covered the apples). Since my apples were not tart, I used less sugar. I actually only measured the cornstarch and water. Allspice and golden raisins made it even better. I will make this again.

Garlic Delicata

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2012
I had never had delicata, or most squashes for that matter, but this was pretty good and healthy. I only roasted one, but used the 3 smashed garlic cloves and salt & pepper. (We like bold flavors, some might not like it.) I was out of fresh herbs, dried parsley worked well. I will treat this like roasted potatoes and get creative with the herbs & seasonings. Thanks Syd!

Slow Cooker Carnitas

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2012
I combined suggestions given by others and it turned out great. I scored the meat deeply and marinated the meat overnight. (I quadrupled most of the seasonings by mistake). I did not add any liquid to the crock pot nor did I broil the meat in the end. I did squeeze the juice of one lime over the meat before I turned on the slow cooker. It turned out moist and very well seasoned. Thanks Erin and my fellow reviewers for this recipe!

Spicy Brown Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 9, 2012
In our house we prefer meat that has been marinated overnight so I did that with the suggested 1 tbsp honey and the spicy mustard. A tiny bit of black pepper and salt as well. Adding parmesan cheese to the Italian style Panko was a hit. I broiled the chicken for the last 3-4 minutes. Thank you ShadowB and thank you reviewers. This is a keeper!

Gouda Spinach Quiche

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
Made it twice and didn't quite get the great flavors I was expecting. Not bad at all though, just not great. I won't be making it again, but don't regret trying it.

Lamb Tagine

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
This was very good and forgiving. Before starting this recipe I squeezed the juice of 1 lime on the lamb, stirred ,washed it off and patted it dry. This cuts the "gamey" flavor of the lamb. As per another reviewer I used beef broth instead of chicken and omitted the saffron. I used regular tomato paste (sundried tomato is probably better), limes instead of lemons and regular salt. Next time I will double the cayenne pepper and like our old neighborhood restaurant I will add one cup of prunes on the last 20 minutes of simmering. The cornstarch was definitely needed. This is a keeper! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Moroccan Couscous

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2012
I omitted the beans and the orange zest and it was still delicious. My husband prefers a plainer couscous with lamb tagine so next time I might try it with souvlaki or something like that. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Chicken Korma II

Reviewed: Jun. 19, 2012
We loved this recipe! I have never eaten chicken Korma though, but my Indian neighbor who cooks from scratch everyday said it was good. :-) I followed Tiffany's advice and seasoned the meat the night before with some of the the spices listed on the recipe & some salt. I added 1.5 times the amount of spices (except bay leaf & turmeric). Since I don't have Indian chili, I will add 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper next time. I increased the garlic to 5 cloves, the ginger to 1 inch, 1/2 cup of cashews (1/4 ground and 1/4 whole) and I used 1 cup of coconut milk instead of the heavy cream and yogurt. I added more salt at the end and I didn't bother putting the coconut milk in the food processor. I also didn't crumble the bay leaf. Thanks to Trina & all the awesome reviewers, this is a keeper!

Balsamic Roasted Pork Loin

Reviewed: Apr. 29, 2012
Fantastic! I used Trader Joe's balsamic vinegar, Costco's Kirkland steak seasoning & 4 smashed garlic cloves on a 2-1/2 pound boneless pork loin roast. Not vinegary even after 2 days of marinating. Thanks for this recipe. It was PERFECT!

The Best Bean and Ham Soup

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
My family loved this recipe. I halved most of the ingredients (no celery) and made it on the crockpot. As someone else suggested, I used 3 cups of low sodium chicken broth, 2 cups of vegetable broth, plus the vegetable juice. Since it filled my crock pot, it took about 10 hours. Next time I will double the ham. No salt was needed & only 1 bay leaf. It was all gone so next evening I used the same liquids and seasonings but used only chickpeas. I also added 4 links of chopped Spanish chorizo, 1 chopped smoked pork chop & 1-1/4 cup of spiral ham. I no longer had the ham bone and it still turned delicious! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Super-Delicious Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2011
This recipe can be easily customized to please different tastes & dietary needs. For a bolder flavor I used 2 large bouillon cubes & water instead of canned broth. I am lactose intolerant so I used lactose free milk & 3 tbsp of cornstarch instead of cream. Next time I will use the number of potatoes the recipe calls for (not less) & hot sausage and no red pepper flakes instead of mild. I forgot to add the kale and it still turned out delicious. Thanks!

Amazing Ribs

Reviewed: Aug. 13, 2011
This is an AMAZING recipe! I refrigerate the ribs after boiling & broiling them(I don't bother turning on the BBQ). I cook them in the crock pot a day or two later. They turn out great and I can spend time preparing the side dishes and socializing with my family & friends. Thanks for sharing!!!

Amish Breakfast Casserole

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2011
It was great. I did everything the night before except baking it. The next day I took the baking dish out of the fridge, mixed it a little, preheated the oven & baked it. It turned out very nice. As per the other reviewers, I added 2 more eggs & 3 dashes of salt & pepper to taste. I baked the bacon in the oven (less mess) & sauteed the onions in some of the bacon grease. By mistake I grabbed the Orelda cubed potatoes Obrien with peppers & onions and it still worked well. I baked it at 350 for 1 hour. Next time I will bake for 55 minutes. Thanks for posting this recipe! It's a keeper.

Peanut Butter Cup Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2010
I wanted to like this recipe very much. I wanted to serve them at a party tomorrow but they taste to doughy for my taste. Nothing wrong with the recipe, just not my taste. My child and husband did not like them either. Sigh. Sorry.

Orange Turkey Brine

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
This was the first time I ever brined or roasted a turkey. The breast was incredibly moist. It was my favorite! Restaurant supply stores were closed when I was ready to brine so I bought a 5 gallon container with a lid at Home Depot (versus a food grade container), a brine bag & a bag of ice. I separated the brine bag from the container with ice, as much as possible and refilled it only once before going to bed since it was a cool night. I used Alton Brown (Food Network) shorter brining times (8-16 hours) and easy cooking methods. Inserting a thermometer is key for newbies like me! The brining liquid took about 3 hours to cool down so I will make it earlier next time. I was scared of a moist but flavorless turkey, so I massaged the turkey (under the skin) with a paste of garlic, oregano & a little canola oil right before roasting. It turned out great. I will make it on Thanksgiving. Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Awesome and Easy Creamy Corn Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2010
I forgot to drain the corn and it still turned out great! I am not going to drain the corn next time. We loved the moist consistency. It was not runny nor hard, it was just right for us. Great recipe. Thanks for sharing it! UPDATE: I have made this many, many times and everyone loves it. I double it for Thanksgiving. I still don't drain the corn. We love it that way.
