BBQ NY Strip

Reviewed: Oct. 4, 2009
Soooo good! I used McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning. I sub red wine vinegar for Sherry Vinegar and cooked them on a skillet by pan searing them for about 2 min on each side then lowering temp until done(about 6-8 minutes for medium well)

Cousin Cosmo's Greek Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2009
I also used chicken broth instead of buillion and slit a pocket on the chicken breasts rather than pounding them. I served it over plain couscous and the dish looked pretty and tasted wonderful.

Crab & Avocado Salad with Fruit Salsa

Reviewed: Sep. 28, 2009
One of the best things I've had in my life! I used mango and cilantro and scaled down the recipe for just 2 servings. It was beautiful and tasted heavenly. So refreshing and light yet so flavorful.

I halved the recipe and added a bit of kosher salt. These are unbelievable! Loved the delicate nutty and buttery flavor.

Kolachky

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
I scaled the recipe down to 12 "cookies". I used the Solo brand Apricot filling and it didn't ooze and tasted wonderfully. I had some issues with the dough sticking to the counter but I dusted confectioner's sugar and that helped a lot. I used a round cookie cutter, spread filling in the middle and then folded in the sides. See my pictures. I think they came out pretty and they were really tasty!!

Flan II

Reviewed: Sep. 25, 2009
Didn't care for it much. I've made plenty of flans before (I'm puertorican, this is a staple dessert down there) and this one is so-so. Adding hot milk to eggs is not such a great idea either. You have to be really careful or you'll end up cooking the eggs with the hot milk. Caramel is the easiest thing to do. Use the microwave!!! Add some water to the sugar in a glass container and heat it up in high for a few minutes (until you see it turn that beautiful amber color). Have done it countless times that way, believe me.

Plantain Chips

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
Awesome!! I prefer to use garlic salt though. AND, do NOT let them get brown. Golden and crunchy is perfect. Once they start changing color the flavor changes as well and they aren't as good. Sometimes I serve these with mayoketchup (1:1 mayonnaise to ketchup ratio or to taste) with garlic OR cilantro chimichurri (cilantro leaves, olive oil, garlic, onion, salt and pepper all blended in or processed until smooth)

Slow Cooker Pernil Pork

Reviewed: Sep. 24, 2009
I've made this 4 times already. I follow the recipe as written and the result is a very flavorful and tender pork that my friends love and request when we have a get together coming up. I'm not a fan of the slow cooker but it works well enough. Having said that... I think this recipe is second best to a traditional puertorican pernil where the main ingredients are tons of garlic, adobo, oregano, white vinegar and onions.

Tiny Pecan Tarts

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2009
MMM! I didn't want a bunch of these, just enough for 3 people. So, I scaled it down to 6 servings. I ended up making twice the dough because I had leftover filling. No need to grease the pan, they came out so easily and so beautiful and so tasty...and they were SO easy to make too!!

Monkey Bread I

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
I scaled this down and used only one tube of biscuits (each cut in fourths) in an 8-in round pan. It was more than enough for 3 people. It was so delicious.

Lasagna Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Sep. 19, 2009
This was ok, not great. I believe the filling is missing something. No wonder so many people had added spinach to it. Good idea.

Cedar Plank Salmon

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2009
I love cedar plank salmon. Didn't have a plank so...I baked this in foil packets in the oven. In my opinion, a good quality salmon should not be dressed up with such strong flavors. It was good a good flavor combination but somewhat overpowering.

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Reviewed: Aug. 31, 2009
Easy. Delicious. Very pretty too. Used 1/4c light brown sugar and 1/2c white sugar. Added 1t vanilla extract. Of course, make sure your fruit is ripe, sweet and delicious. That's the key.

Baked Ham

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
I liked the idea. Turns out very moist but I couldn't resist basting it with a honey/brown sugar/butter/ground cloves mixture after the first 2 hours of baking.

Apple Pie by Grandma Ople

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2007
Delicious! However, I rather pour in the butter.sugar mixture over the apples than over the lattice crust. I did add a pinch of allspice and about 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla to the butter/sugar mix. Excellent!
