This is a delicious and simple recipe! It also tastes great if you add a little ground cumin.

Fruit Salsa

Reviewed: May 24, 2001
This seemed like a strange combination of flavors, but it really makes a wonderful salsa...complex-tasting with no unpleasant clash of flavors. Very creative and delicious! I'll definitely make it again.

Kiwi Fruit Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 7, 2001
This was pretty unusual. I served it as a dip, but I think it would be better as a topping for grilled pork or fish.

Pignoli Cookies I

Reviewed: Jun. 18, 2001
These came out absolutely delicious. I had to chill the dough for about 15 minutes before it was firm enough to form the cookies, but other than that everything turned out perfect!

Watermelon Margaritas

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2001
These margaritas were awesome! I just happened to have some frozen watermelon cubes, so I was very pleased to come across this recipe. I used Chambord liqueur instead of triple sec, since I had that on hand. Sweet and delicious! Great for a summer party!

Cincinnati Chili I

Reviewed: Aug. 2, 2001
The only thing that prevents this from being authentic Cincinnati chili is that it tastes WAY BETTER than anything you get in the chili parlors! This is absolutely delicious, and you MUST try it 'Cincinnati' style: served over spaghetti and topped with grated cheddar cheese. We call it a three-way in Cincinnati. You'll call it your new best friend.

Caribbean Sweet Potato Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2001
Very unusual and delicious! I skipped the cukes and added a little extra lime juice and oil to the dressing. I'll make this one again.

These were very tasty...tastes like Christmas. Be sure to stir the spices in well, or someone might get a big clump of ginger...

Baked Ham with Fresh Pineapple Salsa

Reviewed: Nov. 19, 2001
This is a great combination--baked ham with pineapple takes on a whole new meaning. I loved the spicy kick of the salsa, and the sweetness of the fruits compliment the salty ham. Mmmmmm....

Pumpkin-Sausage Tarts

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2001
These were really unusual and tasty...a great combination of sweet and savory! I didn't have time to make the pastry (though I'm sure it would be even better that way), so I used frozen phyllo mini tart shells. Everyone devoured them at my party.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2002
This is a great recipe, and a nice twist on traditional bulgar tabbouleh. The quinoa gives it a very nice texture, and the addition of shredded carrots gives it some sweetness, which complements the lemony tang. I used half the olive oil to lower the calorie count a little. I'll make this one again!

Jamaican Me Crazy Chili

Reviewed: Feb. 12, 2002
This chili is really good, although it definitely needed spicing up! I added a minced habanero pepper, which gave it the needed zip. I also used texturized vegetable protein instead of ground beef to get the same texture as meat chili without all the saturated fat. I'll make this one again!

Easy Red Beans and Rice

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2002
This is a delicious (if less than authentic) dish! I added jalapenos and a few shakes of Tobasco to give it some kick, and served over steamed short-grain brown and wild rice...my hubbie and I loved it!

Green Curry Tofu

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2002
This is a wonderful dish. I especially liked the idea of stir-frying with sesame oil - it really adds depth of flavor. I also added broccoli to the stir-fry, used lite coconut milk, and served over steamed short-grain brown rice. Delicious!

Washabinaros Chili

Reviewed: Apr. 22, 2002
This chili rocks! The wasabi, sausage, and multiple kinds of peppers really add depth of flavor. I always substitute ground beef with 2 cups of texturized vegetable protein (TVP) to make it a little healthier (add 2 extra cups of liquid if you try this). The beer I used was perfect for the recipe, too: Alaskan Brewery's Smoked Porter - they smoke the malt with alderwood before brewing...try it if you can find it. This will be added to my growing arsenal of awesome chili recipes from allrecipes...thanks Aaron! Deee--LISH
