Kalamata Olive and Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
Found this recipe while looking for a roasted garlic bread recipe. It was really good! The method described really sped up the proofing process. I used my Kitchen Aid mixer instead of a food processor. Here's the ingredient changes I used: only 2 cloves of garlic as what I had was getting a little dry and thus more pungent and a Tbl of dried rosemary, crushed.

Baklava

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2011
Used walnuts and orange zest and it was fantastic! Definitely store uncovered - that way it won't get soggy

Sweet and Sour Pork Chops

Reviewed: May 25, 2007
These were pretty good! I followed the recipe (I used sweet chili sauce - like what you would use for Chinese sweet and sour chicken) and spicy mustard. I ended up adding a couple teaspoons of sugar to balance out the mustard I chose. Instead of using the broiler, I grilled the chops outside and chose chops that were an inch thick. Good flavor. My husband thought they were marinated. Turned out very juicy.

Creamy Banana Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2007
Great banana bread recipe. Made just as stated only I omitted the nuts cause I didn't have any on hand. I also decided to add a strudel topping which added a sweet crunch to the top (mixture of sugar, cinnamon, butter and flour).

Roasted Corn Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2007
This was pretty tasty. I used 6 smallish roma tomatos. Unfortunately I didn't have any cilantro but I made up the flavor by adding extra lime juice. Served it with a spice rubbed tilapia.

Tomato-Cream Sauce for Pasta

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2007
This was great. It is tomato season so I just used oven roasted roma-style tomatos from the garden. I omitted the sugar - not a big fan of sweet sauces and pureed it with an immersion blender. Turned out great.

Cranberry Streusel Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
This is a great looking pie. The food processor worked great for chopping the cranberries up. I also increased the sugar to one cup and used pecans in place of walnuts. It has a taste that I would say is a mix between a rhubarb and a cherry pie. Try it for a sweet tart taste.

Easy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2008
This was very good. We added a tsp of red crushed chilli flakes to make it have a little bit for kick. It could also use a tad less curry for our tastes in the sauce. But over all, a great meal! I served the sauce and chicken over glassy bean noodles.

Mediterranean Pasta

Reviewed: May 9, 2008
This was wonderful! I skipped the dried rosemary as it usually ends up being woody pieces in my dishes unless I crush it first. Instead, I sauted the chicken breast with Italian seasoning sprinkled on them to add the "herby" component. Thanks so much for the recipe! Next time I may try halved grape tomatoes as I think it would make for an even prettier presentation.

Blender Hollandaise Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
Very quick, very easy. The taste was pretty good too! Be careful that your butter isn't too hot or it can start to curdle the egg yolks.

Italian Herb Bread I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
This bread had a great flavor - not too much and not too little spice. I made as directed but cut the recipe in half. We dipped it in extra virgin olive oil that had Parmesan cheese and pepper in it. This could easily be the bread on your table at a fancy Italian restaurant.

Easy Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2009
Everyone loves this in our house! I used 1 percent milk as that's what we keep on hand as well as heavy whipping cream. I forgot the salt (oops!) but you couldn't tell from the end result. Used good quality dark chocolate chips that I chopped up. It was wonderful!

Parmesan Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Aug. 23, 2009
This was VERY tasty and actually had a light herby taste - really not what I was expecting from the title. I used fresh sage (because I have loads of it in the garden), dry bread crumbs, and boneless chops - cut 1 inch thick. The lemon flavor was terrific and I also would not skip it. The only thing I'll do different next time is use thinner cut chops or pound them thin and then I think they'd be over the top. Oh, and I also pan fried them and then used the oven safe fry pan to go directly into the oven. If I pound them thin, then I will omit the oven stage.
