Thai Steamed Mussels

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2012
As of right now, I see 3,040 "saves" and 61 reviews. If you've been thinking about making this, but have reservations about, perhaps, dealing with cleaning the mussels (like I did), just GO for it! I got 4(ish) pounds of mussels from the local grocery store, and did end up discarding quite a few of them that were open or cracked(maybe a third?) but scrubbed the closed ones with a toothbrush and pulled out the "beards", and we (*we* including a VERY hearty eater) had more than enough (including a good bit of crusty bread) for dinner. The sauce was perfect as written (ok, maybe a little extra red curry) and my aforementioned hearty eater used his soup spoon to finish the sauce/broth after his bread was used up. I do recommend watching the mussels as they're cooking, and as soon as they're all opened even just a little bit to remove from the heat. I think mine took maybe 3 minutes and were perfectly cooked. We love cilantro on anything/everything, and the amount in the recipe was great, but if you had any less or more, it would be quite all right. The balance of the other ingredients is absolutely perfect. This will go with/on chicken and rice next, and definitely mussels and/or clams again!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs

Reviewed: Dec. 23, 2007
My husband usually likes my cooking pretty well, but this one made him exclaim that I MUST send the recipe to his mother so we could make it when visiting over Thanksgiving. His 8 year old niece immediately proclaimed it the BEST CHICKEN EVER. Instead of skewering the chicken, I just pounded the breasts thin and we grilled them that way. I've only had dried rosemary the times I've made it so far.. can't wait to try it with fresh!

Sassy Chicken Enchilada Dip

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2006
This was one of the best recipes I've ever found! Brought it to work, and once I convinced a few to try it (if only it looked a WEE bit more appealing..), they convinced the rest. Everyone wanted the recipe (even the notoriously picky ones), and it was the first thing gone. Corn chips make it perfect!

Couscous and Cucumber Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2006
My new absolute favorite! The seasonings and lemon are perfect together, and the cucumber was just made for it. Could easily add tomatoes, bell peppers, or other crunchy-type veggies but it's perfect just as-is. I'd give it more than five stars if I could. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
