Chicken Piccata Altered

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2010
This was very good. It's sort of funny to say this on an altered recipe, but I had to make a couple of alterations... :) but only because I didn't have the right ingredients. I don't buy garlic powder (which, by the way, is missing from the ingredient list but mentioned in the directions) -- so I left it out, but added about a teaspoon of crushed prepared garlic. And I didn't have any white wine on hand so used two cups of chicken broth instead. It was very good, I will definitely make it again. I served it with angel hair pasta, steamed carrots, and steamed green beans.

Vietnamese Lemon Grass Chicken Curry

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2009
Sounded good, but WAY too much fish sauce! I did it as written and it was like eating salt. I think maybe 1 tbsp would be plenty.

Smoked Salmon Mousse

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2009
This was very yummy. I made it as listed (although I ommitted the salmon roe garnish). I doubled the recipe and used half full-fat cream cheese and half light cream cheese. I'm sure it would work just fine using either one on its own. It's much easier to mix if you leave the cream cheese out to soften for at least an hour ahead of time. I tried to put it through my food processor but it didn't work at all - although it did a great job of pulverizing the salmon. Oh, and I used fresh dill as my dried dill is about a hundred years old.

Zesty Lemon Loaf

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2008
I've just finished baking this and haven't actually tasted it yet, but it smells pretty good! Two problems with the recipe... it calls for ginger in the ingredients, but doesn't mention it in the directions. I had fresh ginger on hand so added it with the wet ingredients. The other possible problem is the second amount of sugar says "white sugar" so that's what I used, white granulated sugar, same as in the main recipe. I think it was supposed to be icing sugar though, judging by the photograph! I didn't need nearly that much sweet lemon juice - maybe half. It perhaps would be different if it was icing sugar...??? Can't wait to try it anyway! :)

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2005
We (bf & I) didn't really care for this recipe. It was quite a lot of work, and then the sauce ended up tasting a lot like ketchup. That might be because I went for "mild" on all options -- perhaps if it was spicier it would be better... but I'm not a big spice fan. :) The one thing I couldn't find was "chili without beans" -- isn't chili, by definition, bean-filled? I asked at my grocery store and they told me it is "chili sauce". Or is it something else, maybe an American thing not available here?
