Curry Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2006
This soup is ridiculously good. I made this to use up some unused Christmas dinner ingredients, and I think it's going to be replacing my current pumpkin soup recipe! I made a few changes: I added one chopped yellow onion, and about 2 tablespoons of minced garlic to the curry saute, and I replaced the vegetable stock with chicken stock and the cream with evaporated milk because I had it on hand and wanted to use it up. I'm sure this soup is great without any changes though! I also added a pinch of ginger. Served it with some warm crusty popovers. Delicious! Thanks so much for the recipe!

Marrakesh Vegetable Curry

Reviewed: Dec. 17, 2006
Good, and really really healthy, too!! I added more of all the spices listed, and added some coriander and mace as well. As with all the curries I've tried making at home, it improves overnight. Try this the next day made as a sandwich between two slices of warm, slightly buttered bread. Thanks for the recipe!!

Gourmet Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
Between the streusel topping and the condensed milk, this pie was a little too sweet for our tastes. It was good, but it tastes alot like the sweet potato casserole dish we southerners make for holidays at home--and that recipe definitely doesn't need a replacement. It was really interesting and different...but I think I'll stick with my old fashioned pumpkin pie recipe. Thanks, though!

Indian Dahl with Spinach

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2006
I'm on an Indian food kick, and trying to learn how to reproduce it for myself at home. This recipe was really good....but seemed to be missing something--a kick. I added a good amount of salt to mine; I would suggest doubling the amount called for. I also used frozen spinach and reserved the water from thawing it to boil with my lentils. That probably added both to the nutrition count and the flavor. I'll probably make this one again, and do some experimentation with it!

Pear Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2006
This bread is delicious!! It rises really well so don't overfill your pans. I made everything as is except I added a teaspoon of ground coriander, which I think added a lovely depth of flavor to the bread. Will definitely make this again! Thanks for the recipe!

Mulligatawny Soup II

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2006
I recommend making this recipe the day before serving, as the flavor improves dramatically the next day. I'm a newbie to Indian food and this was my first time trying to make it at home. I have little basis for comparison, but I thought the soup seemed to be missing something. Most Indian dishes I've tried have a sort of....completeness in flavor that I thought was lacking here. I was missing a certain spiciness. This may just be due to my inexperience with Indian spices, though! I added some chili powder to help boost the heat; that seemed to help some. This recipe is definitely worth making at least once, although I don't think I'll make it again until I've tried enough mulligatawny soup to know what I was missing from it!

WWII Oatmeal Molasses Cookies

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2006
These are SOOOO good!!! They're so soft and....fluffy! I replaced my shortening with butter and added 1/2t each of cloves and cinnamon, but kept everything else the same. This is going to replace my current oatmeal cookie recipe. Thanks so much!!

Blueberry Cornmeal Muffins

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2006
An interesting textured change from typical blueberry muffin recipes. I loved the crunch these muffins had right out of the oven. I made this recipe as a side to the lentil-apricot soup also on this website, and it paired nicely. I'll make these muffins again. Thanks!:)

Apricot Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 7, 2006
This is great! I love the lentil-apricot combo. Next time though, I think I might chop up the apricots a little more so I can have them more dispersed throughout the soup. I served this with the Blueberry Cornmeal muffins also on this website, and I thought the two recipes went well together. Added a 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper and a couple shakes extra of the cumin and thyme. As leftovers, this soup is delicious with some shredded cheddar cheese sprinkled on top! Thanks for the recipe!

Spicy African Yam Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2006
Sooo good!! I pureed the soup like some of the other reviewers did, and then added the peanut butter, rice, and salsa. I think the presentation is very nice that way. Also added a couple shakes each of ginger and paprika. It's great that such a rich tasting soup can be so healthy! We'll definitely be having this one on a regular basis. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2006
Wow!! What a great recipe! This would be great for a Superbowl party. Or any cold day for that matter.:P After having some without any additions, try it Frito Pie style with a dallop of sour cream, some Mexican cheese mix, and some fritos tossed in. Delicious! Thanks so much for this recipe!!

Amaretto Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 5, 2006
Pretty good! I loved how the amaretto blended in with the other flavors. My sauce was a little thin, so I added a bit of cornstarch while I was whisking to help thicken it up...I think that helped. This dish went great over a bed of angel hair tossed with a little ground pepper. Thanks!

Black-Eyed Peas and Tortillas

This recipe was just ok. I think I'll stick with the more traditional recipes with ham for my New Years Day peas. Thanks for the recipe though!

Ibby's Pumpkin Mushroom Stuffing

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
Very good recipe. Mine was a little dry, but that was my fault for keeping it in the oven for a little too long. Just make sure you keep an eye on it in the oven, and if it looks dry before you put it in, add an extra tablespoon of chicken broth. Will make again.

Simple Tuna Melt

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
Yum! Will make again. I left out the salt, and also the pickles because I didn't have any, and it was great. I'm sure it's also great with the pickles; I'm just not much of a pickle person so I never seem to have them around. I also made it as an open faced sandwich. Thanks for the recipe!

Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 14, 2005
Super yummy and super easy. I added a shake or two each of ginger and nutmeg; not enough to be able to taste either spice, but just enough to intensify the flavor of the soup. I also added the cream to taste, which was about half of the listed amount. This soup would be excellent for company. I'll make this one again; thanks for the recipe!

Alaska Salmon Bake with Pecan Crunch Coating

Reviewed: Nov. 6, 2005
Nice recipe. I served it with the mashed sweet potatoes on this website as a side, and they compliment each other nicely. I think next time I'll mix just a tiny bit of olive oil into the dry mixture- not enough to make it wet or soggy, but just to get the dry stuff to hold together on the fish a little better. Will make this again. Thanks for the recipe, Christine!
