Blueberry Zucchini Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
Really good. I think this recipe calls for a little too much sugar though - I had super sweet fresh blueberries and didn't need so much sugar. I didn't have mini loaf pans so did one large loaf and then the rest went into muffins. If doing muffins you only need about 20-25 mins in the oven.

Spicy Shrimp Skewers

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2009
good taste. I added a lot more of the spice and some chopped jalapeno to make it spicier. I do wish it wasn't so runny, I would love to keep some on the side for dipping the shrimp but it's not quite thick enough.

Hoisin-Ginger Beef Skewers

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Wow, this was super tasty! I had a bunch of hoisin sauce left in my fridge and was looking for a recipe to use it up. Now I will be buying more so I can continue to make this dish. The marinade was really tasty, but not overkill - it was a really nice mix of flavors that went perfect with the flank steak. And the steak turned out really tender (I marinated for five hours). I didn't use sesame oil since I had none on hand, otherwise I didn't change a thing.

Pasta Shells with Portobello Mushrooms and Asparagus in Boursin Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2005
Delicious! Super easy to make and tastes like something you'd order in a restaurant. It's a perfect quick and easy tasty dinner if you don't mind the cost (the Boursin is almost $7 in my supermarket and asparagus and portabellos are never cheap).

Egg Salad I

Reviewed: Jun. 22, 2005
good stuff... the red onion and dill give it a unique taste that works well. I also like that it doesn't use a ton of mayonaise

Andouille and Chicken Creole Pasta

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2011
I could not eat this - waaay too seasoned. I should have read the reviews before trying. Do not use all the seasoning if you are trying this. I love spicy, but this was just too much salty flavoring. Also, ingredients call for margarine but it's listed nowhere in steps

Chicken Breasts Pierre

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2009
We really liked how this turned out. It is definitely sweet with the brown sugar and stewed tomatoes. I left it simmering too high and it got super thick, almost burnt, but that didn't take away from the flavors. Some slight changes (which I think may have actually helped) - I didn't use the teaspoon of salt. Does not need more than a dash. I used celery salt instead of celery seed (all I had) and I didn't have mustard powder so I used a little squirt of brown mustard. The result was sweet and tangy and the simmering made the chicken really juicy. I will make again.

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
This was great. I echo many of the reviews here - double the recipe, this doesn't make a ton and you'll want leftovers. Chop the apple finely if you don't like big chunks. Mine didn't turn out soup-y at all though, more like a jambalaya. Not sure if it's supposed to be that thick or not. But, it was delicious.

Sweet and Spicy Stir Fry with Chicken and Broccoli

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2009
I was surprised at how thin this stir fry sauce was, I was expecting it to be a bit thicker with the hoisin sauce. Overall, this was okay. Not really spicy or sweet. It was really mild to our taste buds. I ended up adding a lot more veggies (peppers, carrots, pea pods) so I doubled the ingredients for the sauce. I highly recommend doubling the sauce . I doubt I'll make this again, I prefer something with a bit more powerful flavor.

Spicy Garlic Lime Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 1, 2009
I'm always looking for tasty chicken recipes and this one is a keeper. The spice mix is very nice, it adds a lot of flavor without being overwhelming.

World's Best Lasagna

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
I would have given this recipes five stars if only the salt requirements weren't so high. SKIP the tablespoon of salt. It's way too much and not needed. I also didn't have time to simmer so long - I would have reduced the liquid portions if I would have realized that prior, but it didn't impact the taste. The sauce was very good without the lenghty simmering. I used turkey italian sausage and ground beef. Very tasty, will definitely make again.

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
One of the best chili recipes I've tried. I added another can of kidney beans and some black beans. Also used two habaneros - it was spicy but it wasn't a painful spicy where you couldn't eat it. The cocoa seemed to tone it down. It was a little hard to cook the turkey in the same pot on just one side though. I will probably cook the turkey in a separate pan next time and then mix it in to the veggies.

Chicken and Dumplings II

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
Very tasty and hearty dish. The seasoning amount in the recipe seemed very low so I incresed the thyme and rub, I imagine it might have been a little bland otherwise. I wasn't too crazy about the green peppers, I'll make it again with peas instead. Like others noted I removed the chicken and cut up, returned to pot before dropping in the dumplings. It would have been incredibly messy to try to do it after. Next time I'll reduce the amount of time to cook the veggies too, they were a little mushy.

Hearty Split Pea Soup

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2012
The prep time for this is not five minutes unless everything is already chopped and the peas are rinsed. If you need to rinse the peas, chop the ham, dice and chop veggies the prep time is closer to 30 minutes.
