Apple Dip

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2009
Very good- I liked it a lot! The kids in my daughters' classroom, not so much. I had to make a healthy treat, per the teachers request, but this was not the kids favorite. I didn't care - there was more left for me! Yummy!

Salsa De Tomatillo

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2006
Thanks, Sandy, this is a great basic recipe. My husband and teenage kids love it. It is excellent with enchiladas, and I can't wait to try it with fish as another reviewer mentioned. It would also be great with pork loin or chops. I even want to try it on burgers. We love enchiladas verdes made with this salsa and it also is great with tortilla chips as a dip. I had bushels of tomatillos from my garden, and I sure used up a lot of them making this salsa for my family to eat with their chips. I do tweak it a little now, I add only one jalapeno (my kids don't want it too spicy) and I also add 1/4 teaspoon of ground coriander (cilantro seeds) and the juice of one lime. Once when I didn't have enough cilantro I added fresh parsley from the garden, which worked out very well, but I still like all cilantro better. I use the smallest onion I have, because the raw onion flavor can overpower it sometimes. Instead of yellow onion, next time I will use a sweet vidalia onion and see if that makes a difference. Also the jalapenos should be green. I used ripe red jalapenos from the garden once, and not only are they hotter but they don't have that fresh green 'grassy' flavor, which adds a lot to the salsa. Looking forward to trying it with nachos, too! Muy bueno y delicioso!

Authentic Enchiladas Verdes

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
These are really good, my family loves them. I made a few changes. I omitted the salt, (figured you get enough from the broth, I use canned or bouillon). I used only one anaheim chili and one jalapeno, they were homegrown, and I wasn't sure about the heat they'd have, (plus my kids don't care for really spicy food). I used homegrown tomatillos, and I did not fry the tortillas in oil, to lower the calories and fat. I did dip them in the hot salsa, then rolled them up and put in a dish, sprinkled some grated Chihuahua cheese (mild white mexican melting cheese)instead of the queso fresco, over the top and put in the oven till cheese melted. The only thing that bothered me was that I expected the salsa to be green, like my homemade green salsa, but the canned broth turned it brown. Maybe if you use homemade chicken broth it is not as brown. But the flavor was outstanding and my family did not care about the brown color. Very delicious!

Pullum Frontonianum (Apicus Chicken)

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2005
Saturei is summer savory (satureja hortensis). Savory is found in any supermarket along with thyme and other herbs and spices. If you cannot find it thyme is a close substitute, but dried savory is lighter than dried thyme and has a slight lemony smell. This would eliminate the unecessary hassle of drying rose petals! I had a kitchen garden and grew many herbs including summer savory (annual) and winter savory(perennial). Liquamen was a Roman salty fish sauce. You could probably use Thai fish sauce or anchovy paste as a substitute. I have not made this yet but am looking forward to it.

Impossible Brownie Pie

Reviewed: Mar. 3, 2005
This was quick and easy. If you are desperate for a chocolate dessert and have run out of flour(I was, needed brownies for church function, and hadn't been shopping, sick kid at home), these are ok. It was the only recipe I could find with no flour using semi- sweet chocolate. The middle was cakelike, but I preferred the ends which were crusty & chewy. It was not too sweet (some brownies are so rich & sickeningly sweet that you can't eat more than a sliver). My kids liked it. I prefer moist,fudgier brownies with a chewier texture and more chocolate flavor. I entered these in a brownie competition at church to benefit charity. I did not win, but I liked these better than the 2nd place winner! I noticed that the recipe does not give an amount for the nuts. I used 1/2 cup broken pecans. Later I looked up the Bisquick recipe and that asks for 3/4 cup chopped nuts. It also says use butter or margarine softened,& sweet cooking chocolate. The results may have been different had I used butter,more nuts,sweet chocolate and packed the 1/2 cup brown sugar. This recipe bailed me out but, bottom line, if I had flour and unsweetened chocolate I would choose to make a different brownie recipe.

Catfish Gumbo

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2005
This was delicious. My husband and kids loved it too and there were no leftovers. Since I had no red pepper flakes or hot pepper sauce, I used a bit of ground cayenne pepper and cajun spice mix instead. It was not spicy (which made my kids happy) but flavorful. A nice healthy alternative to fried catfish. We will definitely make this again and again. A new family favorite!
