Wow! Sweet and Sour Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 24, 2013
I scaled the ingrediants down to 3 servings, but still had tons left over after serving with egg rolls. However, if was using this as a sauce to top veggies, meat and rice or what not, amount of sauce would be good. I added maybe 1oz of pineapple tibits that I crushed, instead of the 4oz that were called for. Also doubled the red pepper flakes, as we like spicy stuff. Boiled for 5 minutes, then removed from heat. Definately cool this sauce before serving if using for egg rolls as a dipping sauce. My other half raved that it was better than jarred stuff.

Fragrant Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Jul. 2, 2012
Great flavor and smelled great. I made as directed, with exception that I doubled spices, cut chicken to 1 cup and added 2 cups of mixed veggies (peas, carrots, squash, zucc, broc, califlower). I doubt I would add the tomatoes again, the acid of the tomato cut a lot of the sweetness of the coconut milk. We needed to add more heat, a lot more heat with some red pepper flakes served table side. Minced fresh cilantro on top was a great addition. I bet water chesnuts and or raw cashews would be nice addition as well. Like others, I found it too much liquid in the sauce, even served over brown rice, would reduce chicken broth by half as well, or increase simmering time or add flour or cornstarch to thicken. Will make again

Spinach Basil Pesto

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Good, but the spinach was awfully strong. However, I only had adult spinach, would try again as written if I used baby spinach, but I ended up adding another good handful of basil to balance the taste. Also, I used raw walnuts, and no zest, but fresh squeezed lemon. Added more garlic, never can be enough garlic!

Simple Whole Wheat Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2011
WOW! A yeast bread that turned out amazingly good. I have tried numerous yeast breads and have never been able to turn out something edible without using the bread machine. The bread machine is long gone, and thus was my ability to produce edible bread! Not anymore, this turned out great, wonderful, better than good. Pretty much followed recipe to a "T", but used 1 cup whole wheat and 4 cups white bread flour in first step, then addeded additional 3-4 cups of whole wheat later. Easily made 3 big loaves of bread. thanks for great addition to my kitchen

Quick and Easy Brownies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2010
So first time I made these, I used one cup of flour as some of the other reviews had mentioned. I also subbed some of the butter for applesauce. Amazing! made them again this past weekend, and decied to try flour amount as written, ( still used half butter, half applesauce), and the result was chewy cake, not brownies. Although they were good and edible, they were not brownies. I will use this recipe again and again, but will only be using one cup of flour.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2009
I've made this several times now, each time a bit different, but this is the base I always start with. I never make the roue, just throw everything into the pot, bring to boil and then simmer for 30 minutes. I too add additional veggies, onions, carrots, peas, corn, celery, and garlic. Each time it's a bit different as it depends on what I've got in the house. Also, instead of the cream I drop a brick of fat free or low fat cream cheese in near the end. Once it melts, its just a wonderful soup. I've cut so many corners and changed so many things it's not really fair to call this the same soup, but I always reference this as the starting point.

Beef or Chicken Marinade

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2008
This a great standby. I've used it often on Chicken, never yet on steak but can imagine it's equally as great. I usually use fresh pressed garlic and chopped red onions, along with diced ginger, but it turns out great everytime. Yummy!

Mulligatawny Soup I

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2007
Great, really enjoyed. Good without cream, but cream really brings out the flavors. Used 1/2 butter & 1/2 coconut oil, wonderful depth added doing so.
