Banana Tortilla Snacks

Reviewed: Feb. 20, 2006
I make these for my two pre-school children. The only thing I do different is that I sprinkle the banana (which I slice) and honey with cinnamon! Make sure to roll like a burrito to make it less messy.

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.

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.

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.

Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2008
This was wonderful! I cut the chili powder down to 3 Tbl and it was plenty. I ended up simmering it for 30 minutes until it was to the thickness I desired (but I think it just enhanced the taste). I was concerned after tasting it before the chocolate went in - was thinking it wouldn't taste very good at all but the chocolate made all the difference. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of bittersweet. I used it on beef enchiladas (used left-over roast meat). I sprinkled some Mexican blend cheese on top as well as some chopped green onions while they were baking. Delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

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!

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.

Pumpkin Bars I

Reviewed: Jan. 30, 2007
Great recipe. I cut in half and it filled a 9 x 13 just right. Wonderful with cream cheese frosting. Didn't add raisins but think they would be wonderful in this recipe.

Fluffy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
These were really great - happy to give them a 5 star rating. To make the dough, I used my food processor. This really made the job easy. I've now got a new biscuit recipe to use which I feel is healthier than my standard white biscuit recipe.
