Red Pepper Soup

Reviewed: May 25, 2011
Very easy and tasty soup. Made it as is, with the addition of a few heathly glugs of Frank's Red Hot hot sauce and cooked with some thyme sprigs. Seasoned with salt and pepper to taste.

Soft Sandwich Buns

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2010
These were great! Tasted and had the texture of Sister S******'s frozen dinner rolls!!!! I took another poster's advice and divided into 14 parts to make bigger rolls, and they were the perfect size for homemade barbeque sandwiches. My only advice, after done baking and cooled, I flipped the rolls and put them back in the over to dry out the bottoms so they wouldn't stay soggy. I guess an alternative would be to put them on a wire rack, but I forgot about it and had to rescue the soggy buns. Very good recipe, soft dough was perfect to work with.

Chicken Tagine

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2009
This recipe was fabulous. I cooked it in a large pan instead of the slow cooker, used chicken breasts instead of thighs (trying to save calories), and substituted dried peaches for the apricots. Because I was not using the slow cooker, I sprinkled all of the dry spices on the chicken and eggplant before browning them in the pan. I added the flour into the pan to cook out the raw-ness before adding the liquid and it thickened beautifully. Definitely a keeper, and the lemon juice is a must!

Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: May 9, 2009
Wonderful introduction to couscous for me. I did sub cooked chicken for the garbonzo beans because I didn't have them...and used dried apples instead of raisins for the same reason. It was wonderful, husband loves it too!!! Had to cook the squash in the microwave for a little because it wasn't soft after 45 minutes in the oven.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Apr. 26, 2009
Not that I need to add to the multitude of good reviews for this recipe, but this is a FABULOUS recipe. It is my brother's favorite, and I always serve it with Naan (another recipe from this site). The first time I made it exactly as printed and it was wonderful. Since, I have substituted a mixture of half and half and 1% milk for the heavy cream, and it is still wonderful!!! Last night I was out of tomato sauce, so I pureed a can of diced tomatoes and just simmered the sauce a little longer and it was STILL wonderful! Was also out of fresh jalapeno, so I used some jarred dried jalapeno from Penzeys and still got the right amount of heat. The chicken is always wonderful, whether cooked outside on the grill, or inside on grill pan. For a while I searched for a "healthier" side dish to add some green, so last night we sauteed frozen peas with chopped onion, a little butter, 1/2 tsp of sweet curry powder and 1/2 tsp of dried basil - it is a great complement and now my meal is complete! I cannot say enough about this dish - it is easy to make as decadent or healthy as you want without sacrificing deliciousness.

This rice was great with the Chicken Tikka Masala recipe also listed on this site. Perfect accompaniment and the rice was yummy all by itself as well!

Sweet Potato Casserole VI

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
Made this exactly as described, except added fresh grated nutmeg and some cinnamon to the potatoes for spice. I even scaled it up for 15 servings and it still fit nicely into a black Glad serving pan for easy travel. Because some in my in-law household don't like pecans, I took a suggestion from another recipe and substituted corn flakes in the topping for 2/3 of the top of the casserole. Both the pecans and the corn flakes were sweet and crunchy/even a little chewy which was AWESOME, and they stayed that way underneath the marshmallows my husband insisted I put on top to broil at the end. Such a great, easy recipe. Suggestion for sweet potatoes: I peel them and cut into pieces if I have time, then steam them over my large pasta pot. They cook in 20 minutes while you're getting everything else together and they are so moist and soft when you mash them because of the steaming. This works leaving them peeled and whole as well, just takes a little more time.

Old Virginia Wassail Cider

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2005
This was great in the slow cooker. Due to all the pots being in use at my in-laws house, I just put everything in the crock pot to begin with. Didn't get to bring it to a boil, so the spiced part wasn't as pungent, but this was still a great combination! Everyone loved the sweetness of the pineapple juice which makes this taste a little peppier than a normal apple cider recipe.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2005
These muffins were perfect! I even used half splenda/half sugar and they still rose enough to look like muffins. No bitter aftertaste that I sometimes notice with banana nut concoctions. They also froze and reheated really well as someone else had suggested.
