Yogurt Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 8, 2006
We really enjoyed this recipe. I made a couple of modifications: added cumin and a dash of tumeric to the yogurt and lemon juice. It added a nice spice to it and an added bonus was the chicken underneath the crumb crust was yellow, hinting at the lemon flavor. I followed other's advice and let it marinate for an hour. I didn't have bread crumbs so used Ritz crackers. It needed a couple minutes underneath the broiler to crisp up the crust.

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.

Basic Flaky Pie Crust

Reviewed: Oct. 17, 2007
Wonderful pie crust. I used butter at fridge temp and ended up using about 4 Tbls of ice water. I think the amount of water you use will depend a lot on the weather that day. I lightly worked it, wrapped it in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for an hour. Took it out started to roll it and it was a little too crumbly. So I worked it a little more (lightly) and it finally came together very nicely. Rolled it out on a lightly floured surface turning after each roll to get a nice circle shape. Baked crust was immensely flaky and had a good taste.

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.

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.

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.

Penuche Fudge

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Wonderful, very sweet. I used 2/3 cup condensed milk because I didn't have any cream on hand. Turned out very good!

Scotcharoos

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2008
Wonderful! Do NOT boil - just heat until the peanut butter is fully melted. If you boil for a long time, the bars will get very hard. Double the chocolate topping if you want it to be a thick layer. Used natural peanut butter and it worked very well.

Bordelaise Sauce with Mushrooms

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2008
This is wonderful! I used red onion instead of shallots (just what I had on hand) and it turned out wonderful. Thanks for the recipe!

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!

Chicken Satay with Homemade Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 9, 2009
Loved this dish. A few adjustments: broiled instead of grilled the chicken and used dried chili pepper flakes instead of fresh (what I had on hand). Made a lot of sauce but the sauce tastes so good, that isn't a problem. I think the sauce would also be great tossed with rice noodles.

Cerveza and Lime Marinade for Shrimp and Fish

Reviewed: May 19, 2009
This was really a great marinade. It makes a lot so it will go a long ways. I used it on pork chops (marinated for 8 hours) as opposed to fish and it really turned out wonderfully on the grill. I did omit the tequila (didn't have any) and I did add a Tbl of brown sugar to sweeten it just slightly. Will use again! Would also recommend it for use with chicken.

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.
