Peanut Butter Balls V

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2006
Wow, these were fantastic! I ended up making two batches in one week because people were cuckoo for them! For health reasons I used sugar-free peanut butter and substituted just 1 tbsp. of butter for the 2 tbsp. of shortening ("health reasons"--who are we kidding?). AWESOME recipe, delicious and so easy, that will go into our permanent collection.

Slow-Cooked Flank Steak

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2006
Wow! This was great and so easy. We added about 4 more ounces green chiles (not canned, but freshly roasted from the farm stand) since we love chiles. This is an awesome recipe for flank steak that actually turns out tender when left in the Crock Pot. Thanks so much!

Patty's Mashed Turnips

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2006
Only so-so for us. But definitely worth a try--especially if you love turnips!

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2006
Wow! This is delicious! Added a bed of butter lettuce underneath to "up" the healthy-quotient. Awesome recipe!

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Reviewed: Jun. 11, 2006
Wow, this was delicious! Like other reviewers I did a chicken version (minced thighs with a knife), and also added pine nuts. DELICIOUS! I have made it twice in one week--once for my husband and I, once for company. Thanks!

Semmelknoedel (Bread Dumplings)

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
My husband and I spent part of our honeymoon in Bavaria. These are THE dumplings that we ate. Don't be fooled--I thought that the recipe looked a little weird, but it is perfect. Follow the instructions exactly, and you've got Oktoberfest in the making!

Chipotle Peach Salsa with Cilantro

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
I'm giving this one 4 stars because while I love it, others find it too hot for their palates. If you like it hot, it's a definite 5-star. If you can't take the heat, it only gets a three. Split the difference and it gets an overall "4 stars".

Black Bean and Salsa Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
This is one of those "I'll-never-tell" recipes. People think that you slaved to make it, but in reality it only takes about 5 minutes to prepare, and 10 minutes to fill your home with an amazing smell that makes people think you've been slaving away in the kitchen. Serve with the Mexican cornbread!

Apple Enchilada Dessert

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
These were pretty good, but very sweet. The second time that I made them I added cotija (Mexican) cheese in order to add a bit of salt and cut out some of the sweetness. I liked it much better the second time around.

Cottage Cheese Chicken Enchiladas

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2005
Wow! I never thought to use cottage cheese! My friends and I had a "girl's weekend getaway", and women who in their normal lives daintily pick at food looked like they were forming a rugby scrum around these enchiladas! I made one substitution: cotija (Mexican) cheese for the Monterrey Jack. THANK YOU for a great recipe!

Jollof Rice

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2005
Wow--delicious! For those who question the authenticity I can only say that I've travelled through Africa, and the place is huge! If you don't get the same BBQ from one Southern town to another in the U.S., why would a West African recipe taste exactly like what you've had?

Garlicky Beet Delight

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
Let me first say that I am not a big fan of beets. BUT...this actually made them o.k., and my husband really loved them. I took your advice to add more garlic {selfishly I thought it would overpower the beet flavor}, and it created a nice taste combination. Thanks for a beet recipe that I can live with and my husband just adores.

Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 7, 2005
I disagree with the folks who thought that the chicken turned out dry. Ours not only turned out very moist, but also DELICIOUS. I upped the herbs a little bit, as I want my herbed chicken to be almost green with them. Thanks for a GREAT and SIMPLE recipe.

Pork, Cashew, and Green Bean Stir-Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 17, 2005
This tasted WONDERFUL, but was pretty short on sauce. Like other reviewers I marinated the meat in the soy/cornstarch mixture all day, and the pork was tender and very tasty. We really enjoyed the texture of the pork and green beans together. I would just suggest to others to make more sauce--while the meat was tender, the dish overall was a bit dry when paired with rice.

Steak Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2005
I have to agree with other reviewers...the dressing for this steak salad is incredible! I will be whipping up extra and keeping it on hand for salad, chicken or pork marinade, veggies, etc.

Rhubarb Muffins

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2005
Mmmmm!!! I followed the whole-wheat flour suggestion (substituting the full amount of all-purpose for whole wheat flour) for a healthier kick. Also added about five blueberries to each muffin after the batter had been spooned into the tin, and before the topping was added.

Gypsy Chicken Stew

Reviewed: Jan. 19, 2005
I have to admit that I was dubious about using so much sherry (especially in combination with the chile peppers), but this was really wonderful! The broth had a great depth to it. Given the high fat, sodium, and calorie content, though, we gave it four out of five stars. A good one for those indulgent days.
