Curried Shrimp Au Gratin

Reviewed: Dec. 4, 2012
A great recipe that you can adjust as you like. You like a hotter curry, double the curry powder. Not a fan of celery or onion, omit, it still tastes great. Plain yogurt would be an excellent substitute for the milk, if needed. A quick short cut.... buy the shrimp at the fresh meat counter at the grocery store, and have them steam it. (many stores do this free of charge).

Salmon Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2011
This is a great basic recipe for Salmon Salad. I did use a large can of Salmon, drained, removed skin and crushed the bones. I used regular Mayo and unflavored Greek style yogurt. I don't care for capers, per another reviewer suggestion I used 3/4 tsp. of dill. The dill complimented the tang of the yogurt nicely. Curry powder would be a nice seasoning for this dish, I would start with 1/2 tsp. then adjust up if needed. I served this on artisan bread with red leaf lettuce and sliced tomato. Cantaloupe was served as well. A nice Zinfandel, fresh limeade would be a great beverage choice with this one.

Mom's Pumpkin Pie

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2010
This pie tasted amazing!! the only downside was that I doubled the recipe, then followed it to the "T" and it made WAY more then 2 pies: it made 5. i don't know what was different, but i won't ever be changing the quantity again.

Tomato Curry Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 27, 2010
A very good basic tomato curry. I prefer boneless chicken thighs for curries (I always sear meat in a skillet with a bit of oil before transferring to a baking dish) , and used them in this dish. I also used 1 1/2 tsp of curry powder to give a bit more of a kick. I also used fresh basil. I did use a darker beer (Modelo Negro). There were no left overs. I served this with Basmati Rice and peas and carrots. I will make this again. Thank-you Franny for posting this one.

Sunday Brunch Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 27, 2008
This was easy as well as tasty. I can not eat wheat...this is the only breakfast casserole I have ever seen without bread or a can of soup. I did omit the dill and bell pepper, I did add 4 oz of green chillies. Outstanding.

Tex-Mex Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 3, 2008
I made this according to directions..with one substitution..I could not find the cotija cheese so I used panella which is a crumbly farmers cheese. I also served this cold with butter lettuce in the form of a lettuce wrap..my vegetarian dinner guest devoured it and asked for the recipe. Another winner thanks!

Orange Curried Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2008
I made this with boneless, skinless chicken breast, it was moist and delicious. For a easy clean up, line your pan with parchment paper or heavy duty foil as the sugar in the marmalade will burn to the pan. I served this with jasmine rice and a tossed green salad.

Kale and Adzuki Beans

This is a wonderful combination. I did use 2 TBS of soy sauce instead of the tamari to control the sodium content. It was filling and tasty. I served this with steamed Bamboo Rice and a salad.

Sesame-Crusted Tuna with Summer Salsa

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2007
An outstanding recipe. I used a sushi grade of Ahi Tuna and made the recipe exactly as directed. The flavors were very complimentary of one another. This dish presents very well for entertaining. I only regret that I ate it before I took a photo of it, to submit. Thanks for a keeper!!

This is a great basic stir-fry. It is one of my go to recipes. I do use fresh garlic and ginger as it is readily available where I live. The family loves this one and there are rarely left-overs. Thanks Lori!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
This was an outstanding winter veggie recipe. I did not use the bell pepper. I did use fresh thyme and dried rosemary (don't forget it is only half the recipe for a dried spice). This would be a great side for ham or turkey. It's a keeper. Thanks for a great recipe.

Brian's Easy Stuffed Flounder

Reviewed: Sep. 21, 2007
Excellent recipe. I did omit most of the butter. I did use 2 TBS for cooking the onion and celery, and used equal parts of chicken broth and reserved liquid to moisten the broth. The Old Bay seasoning was just the right flavor to finish this wonderful dish. Thanks for sharing a great recipe.
