Honey Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2004
Wonderful! I added extra honey and salt and it came out sweet enough to be a "breakfast" bread. We haven't even gotten around to toasting it yet, my husband and I just eat it as is.

Big Joe's Venison Steak in Chestnut Sauce

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2004
This turned out great! My husband raved about it, he even ate the strained carrots and onions as a side. I burnt the chestnuts so I left them out and could not find Madeira wine in time, so I substituted 3T sherry + 1T brandy.

Strawberry Oatmeal Cream Cheese Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2004
Didn't like it at all. Strawberries just don't cook well and the cream cheese melted into the dough and I couldn't taste it.

Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2004
Too sweet. I'll leave out the vanilla all together next time and double the peppermint. The chips beat up my automatic ice cream maker so next time I guess I can try and grate the chocolate.

Buttermilk Honey Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 23, 2005
Turned out great in my machine. I checked the doughball and it was too wet and I probably added in a cup of flour. The loaf was picture perfect and the bread was moist and airy.

Malaysian Beef Rendang

Reviewed: May 14, 2005
My husband (the picky eater) thought it tasted "weird" but I loved it. My grocery store carries tubes of pureed lemon grass, ginger, and garlic where the fresh herbs are located. But I didn't get the right chile peppers so it wasn't as spicy as it could have been. Will definately make again...he can have PB&J. ;-)

Southern Fried Cabbage

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2005
This was too greasy for my taste (not a fan of fried anything), but my husband is making it again tonight and reducing the oil to 1 T per another review. He uses maple cured bacon and omit's the sugar altogether.

Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken)

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2005
My husband and I both liked it but I doubled the cayenne pepper and the garam masala. And my husband said he would never eat indian food and he went back for seconds.

Wild Rice Cheese Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2005
This recipe is pretty foolproof, I added 3 cloves of garlic, carrots, and corn. I omitted the evaporated milk and just used regular milk. My husband loved it and I finally found a recipe to use up all the venison sausage we're given in the fall.

Reviewed: May 2, 2006
I usually use 1 cup chocolate soy milk and honey peanut butter. Definately freeze the banana before making the smoothie.

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie

Reviewed: Jun. 6, 2006
More adult than your average chocolate chip cookie. My husband and I love java flavored anything so I add extra instant coffee. And it's easier than the scam recipe.

Portabella Nirvana

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2006
I was really excited about this recipe, but it came out really bland in my opinion. Next time I'll probably try marinating the mushrooms in lemon/garlic, with more crabmeat (not the canned stuff either) and less crackers. And maybe find a remoulade to serve along with it.

Kheer (Rice Pudding)

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2006
I liked this alot, but it cooked up too thick for my taste so I stirred in some extra milk at the end to thin it out. I didn't have rosewater so I stirred in a couple tablespoons of honey to give it a flowery flavor.

Slow-Cooked Ham 'N' Broccoli

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
It took a lot longer than 2 hours to cook, more like 4-6. But my husband loved it and asked me to make it again.
