Roasted Okra

Reviewed: Dec. 2, 2013
I have been roasting okra for years and it is awesome! Since it is not readily available in the stores year round, I do the same cooking method with frozen cut okra. Just drain it in a colander and squeeze out the water and some of the slime. It works great! I also cook the whole pods this way when they are available fresh. I put my okra pods in a plastic bag and put in a few tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper, and squish around to coat, then put on baking sheet. My husband and I are from Texas and we love okra, so we have it cooked this way once or twice a week.

Grandma's Noodles II

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2013
I have made homemade noodles for many years and my recipe is very similar to this one. However, a really easy way to cut them is: After rolling your dough out thinly, roll it into a roll and cut across at intervals as wide as you want your noodles to be. Then just pick up the outside end of each noodle and drop them into your soup. Much easier and faster than cutting each one individually.

Quick Chicken Marsala

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2010
I was excited to find an easier recipe for Chicken Marsala, but was very disappointed with the taste. It was so salty! (And, I didn't put any in.) All that Marsala was not enough to drown out the salty canned soup taste. In fact, the canned soup taste drowned out the marvelous Marsala. This is not a keeper.

Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2010
I made this tonight -- just as written, and served it with grilled salmon. It was fabulous! It would also be great with just white potatoes, or just sweet potatoes. What a great accompaniment to grilled foods. I am always looking for good, different salads and this one is definitely a keeper!

Carrot Rice

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2010
This is the rice recipe I have been waiting for! I made this just like the recipe, but used brown rice. Served it with teriyaki chicken -- awesome! My husband had seconds -- and, he NEVER does that! Thanks for the great recipe!

123 Green Tea Ice Cream

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2009
I tried this recipe in order to get a sugar-free dessert for a diabetic friend who was coming to an Asian themed dinner, so I used S/F ice cream. In order to get the Matcha mixed in well with the ice cream, it has to be pretty well melted. Then if you re-freeze it, it is much harder and you loose a lot of volume. So, after much thought, I decided to take it back out and put it in a mixer and whip it up again and then re-freeze it. This worked OK -- at least saved me from having to throw away a whole carton of ice cream. Also, the Matcha I bought was so strong that the flavor was overwhelming. I had to also buy more ice cream to mix in before whipping it. All in all -- too much bother and not a very satisfactory result.

Better-Than-Takeout Thai Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
We did not care for this recipe at all. Wasted a lot of good ingredients. I kept adding garlic, ginger, red pepper, etc. to give it some flavor. Definitely won't make it again!

Brisket with BBQ Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 15, 2008
This is the most fantastic recipe! I discovered it a few years ago and it has become a favorite. I make it often -- exactly as written and it can't be beat! I take it to potlucks and it is the first dish that disappears and I always get requests for the recipe. I grew up in Texas and this is like the barbecue I grew up with. Easy and incredibly delicious!
