Chickpea Curry

Reviewed: May 15, 2008
This was very tasty. I did not have onion, so used a combonation of carrots and celery. I also did not have the cilantro, so used the celery greens. I served this over brown rice. The next time I think I'll add a can of diced tomatoes and a dollop of plain yogurt on the top.

Fried Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2007
This recipe really hit the spot when we were in the mood for cheese sticks. I ended up double coating my cheese (I had extra) and did these in 3 batches. The first batch I did for 3 minutes, and it was too long, with most of the cheese cooking out resulting in empty tubes. The second batch I cooked for about 2 minutes and these turned out much better. The third batch I froze overnight and cooked the next day for a snack, and these turned out the best of all. The frozen batch cooked for the 3-3.5 minutes called for in this recipe. Thanks for the recipe, we'll be doing this again!

Lime Chicken Soft Tacos

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
This was a great recipe, but I did make some changes. I tossed the diced chicken with chili powder and cumin as another suggested. I also did not have lettuce on hand, so instead I made a seperate batch of the sauce and tossed it with some finely shredded cabbage. I did that first and let it marinate in the fridge while I finished the rest of the meal. One other thing, as others suggested I doubled the sauce for the chicken. All in all, this was a delicious meal. Served this with some fried plantains and some jalepeno poppers and it was a gret meal. Thanks for sharing!

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2006
This was perfect for our Thanksgiving feast. Everyone loved them so much, I am now required ot make these from now on. I made a couple of small changes. I used 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1/2 cup white sugar. I also added about 1/2 cup of a raisin/craisin mix. Thanks so much for sharing!

A Jerky Chicken

Reviewed: Nov. 15, 2006
This was just DELICIOUS!! I had to make one substitution because I thought I had soy sauce on hand, but didn't. Instead, I used oyster sauce. Served with some boiled baby red potatoes tossed with olive oil, white wine vinegar and minced fresh mint, and a side salad. Great meal! Thanks so much!!!

Honey Mustard Dressing II

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2006
This was a great base for honey mustard dressing. Here are the changes I made. First I doubled the recipe, using white wine vinegar instead of lemon juice. I then added an additional tbs each of mustard, honey and vinegar. I then added about 1/4 tsp each of mustard powder, cayenne pepper and paprika. With these additions, this dressing was exactly what I was looking for to go with the homemade chicken tenders I made. Thanks!

Golden Sweet Cornbread

Wow! I will never buy boxed corn bread again. This was so moist and delicious. The perfect compliment to the eastern carolina bbq, cole slaw and baked beans that I served for dinner tonight. Thanks so much!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
This was exactly what I was looking for. I made this the first time as written. The second time I omitted the onion, as a personal preference. Without the onion, this is the perfect slaw recipe. I served this with an eastern carolina bbq recipe from this site as well as corn bread and baked beans. Dinner was absolutly delicious. Thanks so much for sharing.

Eastern North Carolina Barbeque Sauce

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2006
Wow! This was perfect! About 3 years ago, I had been to a family reunion in NC where there was a pig roast, and they served the pork with a delicious spicy vinegar dressing that I'd never tried before. Since then, I've had a craving for this sauce. I scaled the sauce by half and made last night. Today, I put a half picnic in my slow cooker all day while I was at work. I added about 1/4 cup of the sauce over the pork while cooking. After draining and shredding the pork, I mixed about 3/4 of the remainder of the sauce with the shredded pork. I served with some homemade cole slaw, homemade corn bread and baked beans and it was just great! Thanks so much. My search for a great Carolina BBQ recipe is over. Thanks so much!!

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Oct. 15, 2006
My family and I really enjoyed this recipe. The only changes I made were to use beef broth instead of chicken broth (it's what I had on hand) as well as adding a bag of the fresh stir fry veggies available in the produce section. This included broccoli, pea pods, etc. One last adjustment I made was to sprinkle the chicken with red pepper flake while it was cooking, to add a little bite. WOW!! Was this delicious. It made so much for the three of us that I had some to take to lunch the next day, with enough left-over to enjoy some during left-over night. Thanks so much for posting this recipe. I've tried to make lo mein before, but it was not this good. I'll be using this recipe from now on.

Asparagus and Tomato Salad with Yogurt-Cheese Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2006
This was delicious! I used fresh steamed asparagus instead of frozen, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It was a great light side dish for a hot summer day. Thanks so much, I'll be making this one again!

Creamy Cauliflower Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2006
This was a really great salad. I added some finely chopped green onions for color and instead of bacon bits, I cooked one slice of thick-cut bacon and crumbled into the salad. I only used a portion of the sugar. The first day the salad was plenty sweet enough. We expected the leftovers to be sweeter after marinating all night, but it was actually less sweet than the first day. I would recommmend if you use less sugar to serve same day, but if you plan to make ahead, use what is called in the recipe. We also decided the dressing would work great with a broccoli salad or coleslaw. I sure will make this again for our next BBQ, it was quite yummy!

Stuffed Peppers with Turkey and Vegetables

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2006
This was delicious!! I used a variety of bell peppers (red, orange & yellow) and chopped and used the tops that I cut off as the pepper to saute with the onion, instead of buying additional peppers. I seasoned the turkey with kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, garlic and onion powders. I did not have zucchini on hand, so instead added additional mushrooms and some scallions. The only other variation was to sprinkle in some red pepper flake for some kick. This was so delicious, my family of 3 ate all 4 peppers as well as the additional stuffing that was left over (baked in a small baking dish for last 7 minutes while peppers were cooking. This was instantaneously decided to include in our "to be made again" file. Thanks so much for posting. Plus this was low-carb with no rice or orzo, which fits right in with my diet. Bon!

Grilled Poblano Pepper and Mango Quesadillas

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
This is a great idea for a recipe. I served this with Swan's Summer Soup from this site, and it was a delicious dinner. I only rated this 4 stars becasue the poblano pepper was not spicy enough for my family's taste. The next time I make this I will look for a spicier pepper to use, and also include either some blackened chicken or blackened shrimp. Overall though, a great recipe that we will try again. Thanks!

Swan's Summer Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2006
My family had low expectations for this recipe. I'd never made a cold soup for dinner before and both daughter and husband were skeptical. Well, after they tasted this delicious soup, they were pleasantly surprised. My husband even went back for seconds! I served this with the Grilled Poblano Pepper and Mango Quesadillas from this site. My husband said that this must be added to the rotation. Thanks so much for the delicious recipe. Oh, and taking the time to juice the tomatoes is worth it, as well as having the freshest ingredients that you can find. The only change I made was to use dried cilantro (the store was out of fresh) and also used fresh basil because I had some and wanted fresh herb included. Again, thanks so much!!!

Balsamic Glazed Carrots

I'm surprised I haven't reviewed these already. These have become a family favorite. We just love them. I've also used this method with sweet potato chunks. Thanks!

Miso Soup I

This was a great soup. The only thing missing are the crunchies that come in my favorite local soup. Thanks so much, I love being able to make this soup at home.

Buffalo Chicken Sandwiches

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2006
This is a great idea for a quick meal. I did not make these into sandwhiches, instead using bone-in split chicken breasts. Also, I used Franks's Buffalo wing sauce instead of the hot sauce combo. I grilled the breasts and served with blue cheese dressing on the side. My family really enjoyed this meal. 4 starts because I used a bottled sauce.

Thai Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2006
When I made this recipe, I used another's suggestion and added a half a jalapeno diced and sauted it with the onion and garlic, as well as adding broccoli while it was simmering. Also, I could not find fresh cilantro locally and so had to use dried. With these changes, I still felt that this recipe was not quite right. I believe this has potential, and so the next time I try to make this I will double the sauce and add a whole jalapeno, as well as add some fresh sliced mushrooms and sliced red pepper while it is simmering, omiting the broccoli. I think I may increase the ratio of curry to the coconut milk as well as use fresh cilantro. Also, will serve over either jasmine or basmati rice instead of whole grain brown rice.
