Grilled Radishes

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2005
I wasn't sure about cooked radishes and thought I'd give this a try. I was dissapointed and would not make it again.

Glo's Sausage Fried Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2005
I made this as a side dish,,therefore, I omitted the sausage. But it was wonderful..great advice on chilling the rice and cooking the egg separately. Also, I didn't have cabbage, so I ommitted it. Thats the great thing about fried rice, add whatever you have on hand. Next time I'll add the sausage, I'm sure it will be even more amazing. Thanks!

Grandmother's Buttermilk Cornbread

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2004
Wow! I made this to go with chili on a cold rainy night. I'm not a big cornbread fan,,so I made it for my husband and kids. They loved it, in fact my husband said it was the best cornbread he's ever had! I even liked it...thanks for the great recipe!

Margaritas

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2010
These are good but sweet. I add a 1/2 bottle of beer to the blender. It adds some fizz and cuts the sweetness as well. I know it sounds strange but I've gotten nothing but RAVE reviews!!!

Sangria! Sangria!

Reviewed: Jun. 2, 2007
I'm thrilled to have found this recipe. We have about 50 bottles of yucky homemade red wine that no one will drink. I used it with this recipe and it's fantastic! Definitely try to make ahead. I also skipped the carbonated water and sugar, and just gave my guests the options to add some sprite to their glass if they wish. A huge hit, will make a lot this summer..thanks!

Antojitos Minis

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2006
This is an amazing recipe! I had a "mexican night" dinner party and they were gone in a flash...I took advise of others and went really light on the salsa. I also added corn to make it more colorful. These would also make great veggie burritos. I put salsa and sour cream on the side. YUM!

Chicken Papadoris

Reviewed: Mar. 19, 2005
I gave this a four-star rating, only because I made modifications that made it really very good. Based on other people's reviews,,and knowing that my husband and I like food with a lot of "zip", I did the following: added a dash of red pepper flakes, chilli paste, and a dash of more soy sauce. I did that after I followed the recipe, tasted the broth, and found it kind of bland. I also omitted the cornstarch step, and instead, let the broth boil down for at least 20 minutes or so, mainly because my daughter was late coming home for dinner! But I think this helped the ingredients blend more, and therefore, was quite tasty! I will make this again for sure. Thanks!

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2005
This was a wonderful-tasting chicken. I didn't "kabob" them, I marinated pounded chicken breasts in the oil, honey, soy and garlic for the day. Then I baked them in the oven, with a side of fried rice. I'm sure it will be even better on the grill, but in this freezing cold weather, the oven sounded pretty good! Thanks! I will make again.

Black Pasta in a Pink Gorgonzola Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2004
Really a delicious sauce! I didn't stress myself out by trying to find the black pasta...mainly because my kids would have freaked! It was a tad bit salty for my taste,,,must have been the gorgonzola...I may scale back a bit on that next time,,but we loved it! Thanks!

Spicy Basil Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2008
This was excellent! And really easy too. I used thai chilli peppers, and only three, and it was very spicy! So in the end, I added a bit of brown sugar while still in the pan to cut the heat and it was delicious. Served over rice. Will make again for sure. Thanks!

This was amazing! My husband said it was better than any restaurant. I can't wait to make it again. It is "company worthy"!

Maple Glazed Ribs

Reviewed: May 22, 2005
WOW....my husband gave it a "ten"...and that is rare. Ribs came out tender, but not overly tender, which was good...boiling first is key, but some people boil them too long, then they are just a mess. One hour is perfect, and the glaze was awesome. Will make again for company..Thanks!

Day Before Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: Mar. 6, 2005
I made these for guests a day and a half in advance, because I had a crazy day and knew I wouldn't have much time to prepare a meal. I thought the taste was good, but they were a bit dry for me.

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style

Reviewed: Mar. 21, 2012
Excellent! I don't bother with the pre-rubbing. I just rub it before I put it in the oven and that seems perfect. Unless your a major salt fan, I would omit it completely as it is very salty even with out it. Makes a moist delicious chicken!

Pasta with Peas and Sausage

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2008
This was a definite hit at our house! I only made one modification. I made it thicker by mixing flour and milk,,It was great! Next time, I think I will substitute the sausage with prociutto..(I know that is spelled wrong..sorry!). But a great sauce..thanks!

Tomato Sauce with Sausage

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2005
This was delicious! I like that there a not that many ingredients. I've always been "sauce" challenged, but this was great. I just made a few changes: I omitted the paste, used crushed tomatoes instead of whole peeled ones, and added just a touch of oregano. Beautiful!

House Fried Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 2, 2005
This recipe has definite possibilities. I would agree that the rice needs to be chilled first. Mine was mushy because I didn't chill it. Also, I would increase the eggs, but also cook them separately, then add them. I will make again with these changes.
