Chococonut Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2013
These are delicious. Made them for a cookie exchange, and everyone was RAVING about them. Tiny changes that I think keep to the original recipe, but up the flavor factor. Toast the coconut, and use good quality dark chocolate chip (I used ghiradelli 60% cocoa). Otherwise followed the recipe. This is my default chocolate chip recipe now!

Baked Seafood Au Gratin

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
I didn't think this was all that. A lot of effort for something that just was kinda bland and kinda fishy, and I love seafood. You end up with way too much. My husband wouldn't eat it because it was too fishy, and after day 2 of trying to finish this dish off, even my brother who lives off seafood, said it was too much.

Honey Roasted Red Potatoes

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
these were surprisingly good! I didn't think they'd turn out crispy on the outside and delicious on the inside, but they did. my daughter who really isn't a potato fan ate them as well. great.

Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 8, 2009
Very easy, and very tasty. I decreased the spice level quite a bit so my kids would eat it, adding sweet thai chili sauce to the dish (about 1 tbs) and made my own personal serving spicier with siracha. But I loved the flavors, and it was so much better the next day. A definite keeper.

Cranberry Cherry Pie

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
I really like this pie. I kinda cheated and used ready made crust (i'm not into making crust, when the ready made stuff is so convenient) I omitted the raisins, and took it to thanksgiving dinner. it was a huge hit. thanks for a great, easy recipe

Grandma's Corn Pudding

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
I really liked this. My daughter (4) who generally LOVES anything corn, wasn't a fan (i think because of the texture) but I really enjoyed it, and was easy to make. I think my kids will learn to like this one ;)

Cranberry Chicken I

Reviewed: Dec. 14, 2008
I was so surprised at how good this chicken was. Came out tender and flavorful. My hubby said it was so good we could serve it for company. I was skeptical at first that this would turn out (seemed like a really odd combo of flavors) but I'm definitely making this again. Followed the recipe exactly. (except I marinated longer than the 8 hours)

Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
I followed Ally99s suggestions and this turned out great. It's become one of our regulars. I added fresh mushrooms instead of jarred.

Ground Beef Wellington

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
way overratted. my husband called this dish a glorified meatball. As is, it's pretty bland, and without much flavor, and I added extra spices n stuff. this was so not worth the effort. I'll have to really change the base of this recipe, adding a lot more for flavor, then it'd be okay. I liked how it was wrapped in the cresent roll...but that's about it.

Chocolate Trifle

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
As is, this dessert is MUCH too sweet and way too processed whipped cream. I made it for my hubby, and he loved it. I think this would definitely be a 5 star if I make again following suggestions here to make my own whipped creme with less sugar. It'll also taste less processed. Overall a good recipe though.

The Best Thai Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2008
This recipe is FAB! Every time I make it, everyone loves it. I love it! It's so hearty and delicious. I do use the lemongrass whole, and remove before serving. I've also made with other kinds of mushrooms, if I can't find shitake. Honestly, it's hard to get it wrong. I pretty much stick to the recipe, besides adjusting head level and not dicing the lemongrass. My hubby says he likes it more than our local thai restaurant.

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Sep. 10, 2008
I LOVE this recipe. The first time I made it, I followed the directions to a T, but what I've learned since then is that this is a GREAT base recipe. I've taken this same recipe and made a variety of different veggie combinations and every time it turns out wonderfully. You really do need to use fresh herbs, you can throw in additional herbs too (sometimes I add a little tarragon or mint) makes the difference in this recipe.

Chicken Breasts with Balsamic Vinegar and Garlic

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
I love this recipe. The chicken always comes out tender and very flavorful. I follow the recipe almost to a T. The breading definately adds to the chicken, just make sure it's browned well, or it'll get pasty.

Spicy Chicken and Sweet Potato Stew

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
YUM! I usually make changes to most recipes, but this one is great as is! I recommend that you make it in advance, so that the flavors get a chance to meld together. I usually let it cook down a bit so that it's a thicker stew. I like to serve it over white rice, or plain noodles.It's a fabulous hearty meal.

Tomato Chicken Parmesan

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
This is delicious and very simple! I made a few changes. I cut the Parmesan cheese to about 3/4 c. and 1/2 c. breadcrumbs. I also added about a cup of sauce in the bottom of the dish, added the chicken then topped with the remainder of the sauce. I used fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced it and melted over the chicken, then sprinkled with fresh Parmesan cheese right before serving. This has become a staple in my dinner rotation!

Moroccan-Style Stuffed Acorn Squash

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
I really didn't like this all that much. I mean, it was okay, but was lacking a lot. I don't think the acorn squash added all that much to the meal. It was really bland compared to the couscous, and took away from the flavor. The cumin level was a bit much, yet lacked a lot of other spice flavors. I added some allspice, a bit of cinnamon and clove to give more of an authentic moroccan flavor, but it didn't really help.

Peanut Butter Noodles

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
I gave this 4 stars only because I think it's an excellent base recipe. You can add a lot to it, and get a fabulous meal. I used spagetti noodles, and used coconut milk as others suggested. I also added 1/2 c. chopped mushrooms and 3/4 c. shredded carrots into the sauce. I cut back on the chili (i used thai red curry paste) to 1/2 tsp. to give it just a little kick (I have a 3yrold, and she didn't mind the spice level). I topped with fresh sliced and seeded cucumber, cilantro and peanuts. I grilled a couple of chicken breasts (marinated in soy, ginger, teriyaki) and sliced into medallions over the noodles.

Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
I LOVE this soup. It's so delicious. But I do make a few changes. You've got to add onions, carrots and celery. I saute the onions with some garlic and a little bit of minced ginger, adding in the carrots and celery a couple of minutes till tender. I cut the cream in half, otherwise it's just TOO thick. I use 1 c. cream, 1 c. milk. I've also made it with 1 c half n half and 1 c. milk. They seem about the same. Definate must

Linguine with Seafood and Sundried Tomatoes

Reviewed: May 26, 2008
This recipe was very good. I was afraid it would taste too fishy (seafoody), but I was pleasantly surprised at how light and fresh this was. I made several changes: I used fresh spinach linguini. I also decreased fat to about 3/4 c total (splitting between oo and butter). I didn't use the whole jar of clam juice, I thought it was a bit much, and thickened the sauce a bit with heavy whipping cream (about 1/4c). At the end I mixed in a squirt of fresh lemon juice, along with the zest, and topped with shaved parmasean cheese and fresh basil, instead of parsley. YUM. My husband, who really doesn't like seafood all that much had seconds! He loved it.
