Spice Sachets for Mulled Cider and Wine

Reviewed: Dec. 16, 2005
Excellent flavor - tastes the way mulled cider should. We like our cider spicy so I used one sachet for a 1/2 gallon of cider and simmered longer - about an hour. We made up a bunch of sachets and gave them as gifts - definitely include instructions so friends friends don't make the same mistake as a previous reviewer by removing the spices from the sachet.

Grilled Salmon II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
Excellent - very flavorful! Tripled green onions and used fresh grated ginger for a more intense flavor. Turned fish several times while marinating to insure even distribution of seasonings.

Pasties II

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
I'm not rating this recipe because I have the kiss of death with pie crust. We enjoyed pasties so much while visiting Michigan that I decided to give it a go. Had trouble rolling the dough thin enough and getting the filling to stay inside without the pastie splitting open. Any future reviewers have suggestions? (besides adding more flour)

Slow-Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2005
Wonderful! Definitely cook the chicken in the soup as suggested by previous reviewers. This soup will only be hot and spicy if you use hot ingredients - I used mild enchilada sauce, etc. and my kids asked me to make it spicier next time - go figure! I also omitted the salt and used low salt products. Used a 2nd can of chicken broth in place of the water. Store bought tortilla chips are the way to go - try melting some sharp cheddar on the chips before adding to the soup along with a sprinkle of fresh cilantro and a dollup of sour cream - yum!

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2005
Wow - finally a healthier version of banana bread that my family loves! It actually tastes better after it cools. I stored it wrapped in plastic wrap in the frig and we ate it cold - which intensified the flavor and made the texture more dense. Will increased walnuts to 3/4 cup next time. Thanks for the great suggestion of freezing overripe bananas -- now I'll always have them on hand.

Best Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2005
Very easy and tasty. Served with Chicken Satay, also from this site. Omitted garlic because there was enough garlic in the satay. Also added a splash of lemon juice.

Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2005
Flavorful! Much better than another satay recipe I've been using for years. Reduced curry powder to 1 Tablespoon and hot sauce to just a dash to accomodate my kids' tastes. Broiled in oven instead of grilling. Served with "Best Peanut Sauce" also from this site.

Hershey's ® 'Perfectly Chocolate' Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2005
If you've never made a scratch cake - start with this recipe. For a little extra effort you'll get a classic chocolate cake - dense and satisfying. Mixing the cocoa into the butter while it's still hot gets rid of the chalky texture. Keep frosting at room temp until ready to spread (doesn't spread well if cold). The cake is so forgiving that I have spread the frosting on while cake is still lukewarm. For birthdays I put a layer of cherry pie filling in the middle instead of frosting and use toothpicks to keep the layers from sliding. It is my family's most requested birthday cake. A real keeper.

Good flavor. I'm looking for a recipe that produces a crunchier coating.
