Quinoa, Beet, and Arugula Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2013
I made this yesterday and substituted kale for the arugula and used canned beets because I already had them on hand. It was delicious! I think some reviews mentioned the arugula or spinach getting soggy when the leftovers were saved, but the kale is a hearty green and it was just as crisp the second day. Kale is also really cheap (I spent 43 cents on it!) so I recommend it. I also omitted the sugar from the dressing and added extra garlic. It was a quick, easy recipe. I took it to a picnic and everyone loved it!

Skin-on Savory Mashed Potatoes

Reviewed: May 4, 2006
This is a great recipe! The only thing I would change is the garlic... I found that adding the fresh chopped garlic was a bit strong and next time I think I'll saute it in olive oil for a minute or two just to take the edge off. Very good recipe though.

Totally Groovy Chocolate Fondue

Reviewed: May 4, 2006
Very good fondue! I make it without the brandy and use extra coffee instead. It's wonderful with fruit, or potato chips. I've made this several times for guests and everyone loves it!

Champagne Shrimp and Pasta

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2006
I made this dish last night for my mother in law's birthday. It was amazing! As far as modifications go,I used extra mushrooms (crimini, the little brown ones) and I sauteed 4 cloves of chopped garlic with the mushrooms. I also used fresh basil in place of the parsley. This dish is also great made with chicken! I had to make one serving with chicken last night because my husband is allergic to seafood, but we all loved it either way! This was pretty easy and quick to make. I'll deffinately make it again!

Coconut Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2006
I've made this recipe several times over the past few years, always serving it with the "Lamb Masala" recipe I found on this site. They go very well together, as they both include coconut milk and curry. This rice is very nice with Indian food. It does, however, require additional water during cooking.

Lamb Masala with Jeweled Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2006
This was my first Allrecipes.com attempt. I first made it when I was 17 or 18... so it's been 4 or 5 years now. This is still my favorite "impress dinner guests" dish! I've made it with lamb, and with chicken and both ways are great. I haven't made the jeweled rice though, because I prefer to use the recipe for Coconut Rice submitted by Sara K. The coconut rice uses curry, coconut milk, and ginger and complements the masala very well. This recipe takes a little time, but it's very delicious and worth the effort!

Chocolate Pudding Fudge Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 24, 2006
This cake was really easy to make, and very good. I don't have a bundt pan, so I made it in two round pans for a layer cake. The one thing that I didn't like were the chocolate chips mixed into the batter. They seemed like they had been over heated and taken on that grainy burnt-chocolate texture. Next time I think I'll leave them out of the cake, and perhaps mix in some chopped nuts instead. I made the chocolate-butter glaze and used it as a filling between the layers and drizzled over the top as well. Next time I'll make more glaze and entirely cover the top and sides of the cake. The glaze hardens to a very nice finish. I served the cake with fresh whipped cream and raspberries, which were a nice complement to the rich chocolate.

Baklava

Reviewed: Dec. 19, 2005
Every year the Greek Orthodox Church in my city holds a huge festival and homemade baklava is always the highlight. I couldn't believe it when I tried this recipie and it was every bit as good as the baklava at Greek Fest! It was the first time I've tried anything like this and it was suprisingly easy. I highly recommend it. All my friends gave it rave reviews, so guess what everyone is getting for Christmas this week?

Slow Cooker Beef Stew IV

Reviewed: Nov. 21, 2005
This stew is great! I followed a lot of the suggestions from other reviews, adding a little extra wine in place of the water. I also added 1 T. of worchestershire sauce to the beef while I browned it. When I cooked the onions, I added some sliced fresh mushrooms and 4 cloves of chopped garlic as well. The stew turned out wonderfully. I probably spent 30-45 minutes in prep time, but I had extra ingredients to slice, and was working in a very tiny apartment kitchen so I have to wash dishes as I work. This was my first time using a crock pot (it was a wedding gift back in June)and I was very impressed with the results. I'll deffinately keep making this recipe all winter! The leftovers are great microwaved for lunch the next day!
