Apple Crumb Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
So easy and sooooo good! Used 4 granny smiths and 2 honey crisps, used brown sugar instead of white, left out the raisins and walnuts, but added a 1/2 cup of crushed pecans to the crumble mixture with an extra tablespoon or so of butter. Usually i cut back on the sugar that a recipe calls for because i don't like things too sugary sweet, but the combo of the granny smiths gave the perfect balance of tart and sweet.

Cheater Pot Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 7, 2010
great starter recipe! skipped the butter, used a ready made rotisserie chicked, shredded, healthy choice cream of mushroom soup, water instead milk -- healthier and still dee-lish! i added 1 medium-large cubed potato and a dash of garlic powder. oh, i also used crescent rounds rolled lightly out so the crust isn't so thick instead of biscuits -- lighter texture.

Spiced Yogurt Pound Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
dense and moist with a light crispy crust! seems to be a pretty forgiving recipe too as i did not use exact measurements. i subbed in more yogurt instead of all the butter as directed below. i also decreased the sugar. and after mixing everything, the batter seemed a bit too dry so i added an extra egg. i used a bundt pan and the cooking time was def way longer than 35 minutes -- closer to 50 as others have posted. even with all these adjustments and my rather slapdash method, it turned out wonderfully. will def make again, but will prob cut out more sugar and use a cream cheese glaze. yum!

Grilled Chicken Thighs Tandoori

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2010
my husband and i loved it! i used half the salt and didn't have any coriander, but the flavor came out wonderfully. i browned the chicken then popped them in the oven, but next time i'll prob just do oven then broiler. a keeper for sure. so easy to throw together and the flavor is nicely complex.

Zesty Slow Cooker Chicken Barbecue

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
left out the brown sugar as the bbq sauce added enough sweetness for our palate. have also added veggies and some chicken broth to make an easy bbq chicken stew.

Carne Guisada II

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
YUM! great basic recipe that is easily modifiable. i made it using the slow cooker. i also dredged in flour and browned before adding to the slow cooker. i also threw in a bunch of veggies (potatoes, bell pepper, onion, carrots) and used both canned tomatoes and tomato paste. instead of beef broth i decreased the water (in lieu of the canned tomatoes being high in water content) and added a beef boullion cube. i also used one serrano and one jalapeno for added flavor dimension. no cornstarch needed -- the flour and potatoes thickened the sauce beautifully.

Chicken with Peanut Curry Yogurt Sauce

quick easy and yummy! tastes like it's more complicated to make than it actually is =). i also added milk as the sauce was a bit too thick for my liking as well as red pepper flakes and chili powder for an added kick.

Mom's Stovetop Pork Ribs

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2009
so easy and soooo so yummy! i didn't have the rosemary and oregano on hand, so i threw in dried parsley and basil, a little fresh cilantro and green onion and it was deee-lish. great basic cooking method, very easy and quick to throw everything in and just let it boil away while you prepare the rest of dinner. easily adaptable to lots of flavors. i did cut the soy sauce to half and it was still to slaty (and i love salt). next time i'll cut it even more.

Lemon Dijon Wings

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2009
hubby and i loved it!! but 4 stars because i did make some changes. halved the olive oil, quadrupled the lemon. subbed out some of the salt for soy sauce, added 1.5 tablespoon of honey, and a tsp of worcesterchire and chili powder for a little extra kick. i'll prob add chili paste next time for even more kick as we like things on the spicy side. used it on 6 full sized drumsticks and baked for 1 hour, basting every 10 to 15 minutes. so good! my husband specifically asked me to keep this recipe in frequent rotation.

Black Bottom Cupcakes I

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I was in a hurry and just used the cream cheese mixture with boxed dark chocolate cake mix and it worked perfectly! The cheesecake mixture stayed at the top didn't collapse. I did halve the sugar because I don't like too sweet sweets (if that makes sense). And they tasted even better the next day. Have made these twice and have had multiple requests for the recipe.

Tomato Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2009
I made quite a few adjustments based on the reviews - I seasoned the cubed chicken and onions with salt, pepper, curry, and paprika. I browned the chicken with the onions in a large suace pan, then poured in 6 oz beer with 1 can crushed and 1 can diced tomatoes. I then stirred in 3 tsp curry, 1/2 tsp cumin, cayenne, garlic powder, salt and 1 tsp basil. When the chicken was almost cooked through, I threw in some pre-cooked cubed potatoes and cauliflower, let it all simmer and right before I took it off heat, a few dashes of cream to balance out the tartness of the tomatoes. YUM! Total hit =) I took away one star because of all the changes, but the basic recipe is great - very easy to make.

Mock Champagne

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
First punch i ever made, made it for a bridal shower and the guests kept coming back for more! Already have requests for it for a bachelorette party next month (only will probably sub real bubbly for the ginger ale here;-P). very simple and delicious. I did think it was a bit too pineapple-y so I doubled the grape juice and added more ginger ale.. I used half regular ginger ale, half raspberry ginger ale and floated both real raspberries and raspberries frozen in ice cubes in the punch. We served it with little scoops of raspbery sorbet using a melon baller. Yum!
