Confetti Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2005
This was really delicious...and a great change from heavy holiday food! I added a can of corn and a can of black beans to turn it into a main course.

Cake Balls

Reviewed: Jun. 26, 2011
Allison, these are awesome! I took a few other suggestions and used red velvet cake with cream cheese icing. I also used melted chocolate chips for the coating since I had them on hand. These were a big hit with company, and really, really easy!

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.

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
Unbelievable! I tried this because I thought it sounded interesting (maybe a little bit weird). I told my husband to try it first since I wasn't sure. But it is THE BEST FLOURLESS CHOCOLATE CAKE I've ever had! It's rich, sweet, intensely chocolate--awesome!!!!!! Everyone should give this a try. The ingredients might seem odd, but the technique is simple, and the results are good enough to sell in a bakery! (Only recipe note: I turned my oven up to 360 instead of 350 since I'm at high altitude.)

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!

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!

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2007
Wow, delicious and so easy! I totally skipped the chilling step, and they still turned out perfectly! As another reviewer said, they look just like the picture. I also added a little bit of orange zest, which was tasty and added a nice contrast. Next time I might skip the powdered sugar since the cookies are already so sweet. Maybe give them a roll in cinnamon-sugar, instead. I also really like that I could use a heart-healthy oil instead of butter. Thanks for such a GREAT and EASY recipe!

Asian Fire Meat

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2005
Gary this is DELICIOUS! My husband and I like a little more heat and more complex sweet so I made the following changes: 1. substituted brown sugar for maple syrup 2. upped the red pepper flakes to 1 tbsp AND added 1 tbsp of Asian chili paste (we like food that makes us sweat) 3. Added 1 can of water chestnuts This is a keeper--thanks for sharing!

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.

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?

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!

Vietnamese Aromatic Lamb Chops

Reviewed: Jul. 5, 2011
Oh. My. Goodness. This was out of this world, and I would agree the best lamb I've ever had. I didn't have lamb chops--only lamb stew meat--so I was worried that it wouldn't work as well. The marinade tenderized it perfectly, and then carmelized it in a beautiful manner. Absolutely delicious! Thank you!

Grilled Tomato Salsa

Reviewed: Jul. 8, 2011
I love salsa, and this one was awesome! The broiled tomatoes added a great touch, and I did not have any difficulty chopping them. Made a double batch of this for a party, and it was the first thing gone. Not a super-spicy salsa, but very savory and good.

London Broil

Reviewed: Aug. 6, 2011
Mmmm mmmmmm mmmmmmm! Absolutely out of this world. I was worried about the variety of seasonings and how they would mesh, but the end result was scrumptious! Thank you!

Kalamata Pork Tenderloin with Rosemary

Reviewed: Nov. 9, 2007
We love this--it is one of our family favorites. Very bold flavors that blend well with a simple pasta dish (i.e. linguini tossed with olive oil and herb mix) and salad. We love it, and our guests always do, too!
