Puff Pastry Salmon

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2014
I combined this with another recipe and the results were wonderful! I sautéed asparagus pieces (instead of spinach) in butter with a little onion. Made a hollandaise sauce from a mix (instead of pesto) and then layered asparagus on one sheet of puff pastry, the salmon fillets, more asparagus, then topped with the hollandaise sauce and the second sheet of puff pastry. It took quite a while to bake and I finally put it under the broiler for a minute to brown the top but the results were beautiful and delicious!

Whipped Shortbread Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2014
I've made these twice now and they come out perfectly! I haven't found the extra whipping time necessary. I replaced the overly-sweet cherries with pecan halves and the cookies were an amazing accompaniment to sorbet for a brunch dessert.

Lentil Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 13, 2014
This was delicious! I changed proportions depending on what I had (less broth, more wine, no celery, and Rotel tomatoes with chili peppers.) very spicy but exceedingly yummy! It is a flexible recipe which is the best kind for the everyday cook.

Kale and Quinoa Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 27, 2014
Looking for something to make with fresh kale, I saw this recipe and said "I have most of that stuff." However once I got started, I realized I had no pecans, no currents, and no feta cheese. I hate it when that happens! But necessity is the mother of invention and sometimes magic happens. I prepared the quinoa, dressing and kale as directed then used avocado, fresh strawberries and grated Swiss cheese as the replacements. It was amazing!

The Best Thai Coconut Soup

Reviewed: May 18, 2014
This soup was amazing. My guests walked in and immediately started talking about how good it smelled! A light soup with bold flavors and a beautiful presentation. And I didn't even have the lemongrass! I paired it with veggie spring rolls (provided an assortment of julienned veggies, basil, peanuts, sauces and let everyone "roll their own.") I'm making it again this weekend for more guests and look forward to another excellent meal!

Jersey Fresh Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Mar. 5, 2013
This was delicious! I ommitted carrots (don't like, didn't have) but followed thr recipe closely except for that. Maybe aseasoned it up a bit more but the basic recipe is a 5-star for sure!

Spicy Pumpkin Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2012
I used fresh pumpkin for this and except for an immersion blender/finger/emergency room mishap, it went well. I served it for a brunch with friends with mirliton bread, salad and mushroom crepes and they LOVED it. I added a touch more seasoning to suit New Orleans' palates and used 1/2 fat-free half & half and 1/2 heavy cream. It was delicious. Thanks to you!

Hasty Chocolate Pudding

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
The first time I made this, I added cinnamon and it almost ruined the batch. I either added too much or the flavors didn't mesh. The second time, I ommitted all flavoring including the vanilla (I had run out of it), added the butter as recommended and used half cream, half skim milk. It was the best pudding I've ever had. Also, the only bowl I had was pottery and I found that cooking the pudding 2 minutes instead of 1 between stirs was perfect. This pudding is easy, quick, and so delicious!

Grandmother's Pound Cake II

Reviewed: Oct. 6, 2010
So good and so "real." I felt like I was eating the same pound cake that pioneer women made. Well uh, not the same exact cake, but you know what I mean. Don't add anything. Enjoy it just the way it is.

Overnight Asparagus Mushroom Strata

Reviewed: Feb. 22, 2015
This is delicious! And easy. The only change I made was to add about tablespoon of fresh chopped golden Caribbean peppers (seeds and pith removed!) which added a little interesting heat and extra cheddar cheese for the topping.

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2009
I'm eating these as I type and they're so good! The only changes I made were to use fresh pumpkin instead of canned (whipped it well with the butter/sugar mixture to get out lumps), and cardomom instead of nutmeg. I LOVE the interesting depth it added to the pumpkin. I'll "test" one more before putting them away...

Vegetarian Tortilla Stew

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2009
This was delicious. Got even better the next day. I had tortilla chips I threw in at the last second and the stew was amazing.

Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookie Logs

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2014
I had to make a few changes based on what I had in the house. So I'm giving the recipe a five because I think if I could have followed it strictly, it definitely would've been a five-star cookie. With just one cup of chocolate chips handy, I decided to substitute a quarter cup of the flour for a quarter cup of baking cocoa and save the chips for melting and dipping the cookies after they were baked. I also didn't have walnuts so I chopped up a cup of almonds very fine. In spite of these alterations, the cookies are light, buttery and delicious!

Autumn Apple Salad II

Reviewed: Jan. 16, 2010
The apples used in this salad make all the differece. I was in the U.S. so I could get Braeburn and Honeycrisp (my absolute faves!) and the salad was amazing. Used banana/strawberry yoghurt rather than vanilla because it was what was in my daughter's fridge and omitted the cherries. When I tried it here in Uganda, the only apples I could get were Pinklady and it just isn't the same. Added more lemon juice and honey to perk it up. Good but not nearly like the first effort. I rated it 5 stars because the basic recipe is easy and so delicious.

Cream of Mushroom Soup I

Reviewed: Jun. 28, 2015
Delish! Didn't have sherry so added a dash of nutmeg and a dash of cumin. "A delicately nuanced soup with layers of intricate flavors for the discerning gourmet." I made that up myself. It's just real, real good!

Amazing Crab Shells

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2011
These were delicious. I added a bit more lemon juice, a dash of cayenne, replaced mayonaise with sour cream as recommended in another review, and put the crab mixture in ready-made baked filo cups. Served them at a fundraiser and they were a huge hit!

Pasta With Shrimp, Oysters, and Crabmeat

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2012
This was delicous! My guests are still talking about it. The only changes I made were to use whole wheat fettucine and add sliced cherry tomatoes. I also added more shrimp and crabmeat and grated parmesan at the end. It made enough to feed 10 people!
