Plantation Ham Cakes

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2011
I'm giving this a four for the idea and the flavor, although I did leave out the anise and the onion. I ground up my ham with all of the ingredients except the broccoli, then mixed that in by hand. The problem was, they fell apart really easily. Definitely use a non-stick skillet, because I didn't at first and had to switch since they were in pieces by the time I got them flipped over. I think it's a really good idea - they just need to be a little more cohesive. I may try them in the oven some time.

Garlic-Cilantro Scrambled Eggs

Reviewed: Oct. 12, 2011
This is tasty! I left off the parmesan and used plain yogurt instead of sour cream. Also sauteed my garlic first and added a dash of cumin. Ate them with a small extra dollop of yogurt.

Black 'N' White Bean Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2011
This is very fresh tasting and yummy. I substituted fresh lime juice for part of the red wine vinegar and ate it with tortilla chips. Thanks!

Chi Tan T'ang (Egg Drop Soup)

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2011
Really good! I added some sauteed mushrooms and garlic - trying to get over a sore throat. Then I just added splashes of soy sauce and vinegar, and lots of ground black pepper. Very comforting when you're feeling under the weather. I halved it and just used one extra large egg.

Dijon Garlic Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 16, 2011
I didn't like this that well. The amount of mustard overpowered the delicate taste of the salmon. I think if maybe a quarter of the mustard were used, along with some white wine and honey, this would be a pretty good dish. As is, it's not very enjoyable. Thanks anyway.

Corn and Zucchini Melody

Reviewed: Aug. 4, 2011
This is really tasty. I used turkey bacon, so I added olive oil for the drippings. Also added salt, garlic powder, and fresh parsley (since I had it on hand). Thanks for the recipe! I don't think I would have thought of this combo on my own.

Green Goddess Dressing II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2011
This dressing is great! The only changes I made were adding black pepper, chives (because I had them), and sour cream to thicken it. Eating it on a salad with sprouts, sunflower seeds and blue cheese. Delicious!

Quick Potato Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
I really like this potato salad with a little tweaking. I left out the tomato and added celery salt, garlic salt and dried dill. It is even quicker if you already have hard boiled eggs on hand. Definitely stands up to all those "non-quick" potato salads!

Confetti Salad by Jean Carper

Reviewed: May 10, 2011
Wow! This is totally delicious. Toasting the walnuts gives it great flavor. I used great northern beans instead of cannelini because they were cheaper. :) Having it for dinner tonight and I think I'm going to have to sneak in another serving.

Summer Garden Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 6, 2011
Okay, I changed this a bit, but it turned out to be delicious! The only veggies I used were leeks, celery, carrots and tomatoes. I browned the pork chops first, then removed them and used the same skillet to begin cooking my veggies (except the tomatoes). After the veggies were about halfway done, I deglazed the pan (with the veggies in it) with some chicken broth and a bit of cider vinegar. Then I put the pork chops back in and added the tomatoes. I had to remove the pork chops again for a bit, just so I could reduce the liquid in the pan without overcooking the chops. The veggies + sauce thickened nicely. I can see that if you used zucchini you would want to add it towards the end; and i only used enough olive oil to brown the chops and saute the veggies. The rest wasn't necessary. I added a pinch of cinnamon and allspice, plus celery salt and dried savory. Turned out great!

Blanc Mange (English Style)

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2010
Yummy yummy yummy! This reminds me of panna cotta, and I love panna cotta! I love the cinnamon and lemon flavors. And I think just about any type of sauce would be good with it - chocolate, caramel, lemon, berry, etc.... Thanks for the great recipe! I will definitely make it again!

Butternut Squash Risotto

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2010
This is delicious! I only used a couple of cans of chicken broth, plus I added some mushrooms, parsley, and a squeeze of lemon juice at the end. Topped my finished product with toasted almonds. Hot it's good! Thanks!

Chap Chee Noodles

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
This recipe as written is okay. Using only the amount of soy sauce called for makes it pretty bland. I added fish sauce and teriyaki sauce, and I'll still probably have to doctor the leftovers.

Bucatini Pasta with Shrimp and Anchovies

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2010
I was bummed by this recipe. I made the vegetable/shrimp mixture while my pasta was boiling, and it smelled and tasted so yummy! Then I added a full pound of pasta, and it was way too much. I strongly recommend only using 8 oz of pasta. I love this idea, though!

Black Bean and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
Yum! This is delicious. I added extra lime juice, vinegar, and cumin; and I also threw in some garlic salt. other than that, I didn't change a thing. Really good!

Stracciatella I

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2010
What a great, easy, nourishing soup! I followed the recipe exactly except used orzo instead of ditalini and parm instead of romano. I can only imagine how much better it would be with homemade chicken stock. And I think some minced scallions or chives would be a great addition.

Pineapple Pork Chop Suey

Reviewed: Aug. 17, 2010
I used less than half the sugar, and I still think it's plenty sweet. But yummy! Reminds me of my mom's sweet and sour pork. I dredged my pork in the 2 T of flour and still had some flour leftover (I think I ended up using less than 1 pound of pork), so I used the remaining to thicken the sauce. Just stirfried the pork, added the green peppers, then added the remaining flour until the pork and peppers were coated. Then I added the liquid and the rest of the veggies. It's easier than removing the pork from the skillet and then adding it back in. Just make sure to only partially cook the pork before putting in the other ingredients, otherwise you'll end up overcooking it. Thanks for the recipe! (By the way, I think this serves more than 4 people, what with all the veggies.)

Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2010
Hot dang these are good! I'm giving them four stars just because I added sesame oil and just eye-balled the measurements. Also added the garlic during the last couple minutes of cooking time, so it wouldn't be raw. I'm eating these for dinner tonight - just these! I have no desire for anything else. :)

Juicy Watermelon Sorbet

Reviewed: Jun. 13, 2010
I agree that, written as is, this sorbet would be terribly sweet. I used one cup of simple syrup and almost five cups of watermelon, and it's still pretty sweet, but also really refreshing. I didn't use an ice cream maker, just poured the mixture into a shallow dish and froze it. Then, once it's frozen, you can either scrape it with a fork or put it in a food processor. (Keep in mind that it melts very quickly.) Also, after combining the watermelon pulp with the simple syrup and lime juice, I pressed it through a sieve to get rid of the solids. Because, even though the watermelons say they're 'seedless', they still have those pesky white seeds that would make for an unappetizing final product.
