Blackberry Peach Pie

Reviewed: Oct. 1, 2012
Delicious! Love the way the sweetness of the peaches plays against the tart of the berries. This combo is way better than either alone, and the recipe couldn't be easier. I've been canning peaches for days and wanted to do something with a few fresh ones. Had a few blackberries still hanging on the back pasture fenceline, so seemed like a perfect match! I increased the cornstarch to 4T, as recommended by other reviewers. Still a juicy mess in my oven, but thanks to other reviews, I was warned to put foil down and that did contain it. I'm gonna make another one tonight and might try cooking the fruit, sugar and cornstarch (SureGel!) on the stove for a few min and letting it gel up a bit, then toss it in the crust. Will report back.

Zucchini Brownies

Reviewed: Aug. 11, 2012
Ah-mazing! I halved the recipe, and left out the nuts, but otherwise followed the directions exactly. Don't squeeze the water out of your grated zucchini-- that's what provides the moisture for your brownies! I also added about a tsp of Medaglia d'oro instant espresso to both the brownies and the frosting-- my go-to secret addition to all chocolate recipes! The frosting is delicious-- not too sweet and exactly the right amount for the brownies. This recipe is a winner!!

Marinated Tuna Steak

Reviewed: Feb. 23, 2012
This was quite tasty. Added just a bit of agave for a hint of sweetness. I wasn't altogether sold when I tasted the the marinade (before putting the fish in) but the tuna was delicious!

Pebber Nodder (Danish Christmas Cookies)

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2011
With the addition of a dash of ginger and cloves, double the cinnamon and cardamom, and 1/4tsp white pepper, this is a phenemonal recipe. Light, spicy and delicious. Make lots; you can eat these by the handful! :)

Frosted Cranberries

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
WOW! These are amazing. I had never heard of frosted cranberries, and was truthfully a bit skeptical, but a friend told me about them, and I had to try it. Brought them to family thanksgiving and we couldn't believe how quickly we ate them all. I used pasturized egg whites. These are beautiful as well as delicious. I've ben instructed to bring them to christmas dinner as well. :)

Fabulously Sweet Pear Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
Sweet and moist. Good pear flavor-- definitely a good use for those almost too ripe pears. I reduced oil by 1/3 cup and cut the pears into small pieces (didn't puree or blend). Added a bit of cinnamon and some grated ginger as well. Baked in a loaf pan, and did the extra as mini muffins.

Whole Grain Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 10, 2011
Light and fluffy. As written, except subst brown sugar for white and left out wheat germ. Beat the eggs fluffy before adding rest of wet ingredients. Serve with berries and a bit of real maple syrup.

Crawfish Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 18, 2011
I've made this a couple of times now, and have decided that my favorite version includes the following: (I generally make half the amount of the original recipe-- it still makes a large pot of rich and hearty soup!) saute a diced onion along with the green onions, 1 lb frozen langostino tails instead of crawfish, 1 can potato soup, 1 box of the condensed portabello mushroom soup from Trader Joes (a must!!), no corn, double the rec amt of cream cheese (full 4oz when making half the original recipe), a bit of Tony Chacheres Creole seasoning, pepper and a few small red potatoes. I cut back the butter from the beginning and just use what's needed to saute the onions and langostinos, not a full 3/4 cup. This isn't a light soup, but sometimes it hits the spot! I think it's better if it simmers longer than the recipes calls for, or even when warmed back up the next day. Serve with fresh baked peasant style bread-- delicious!!

Three Chile Dry Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
Great flavor, but a bit hotter than I expected. Couldn't find pequin chiles, so doubled the serrano and jalapeno. Added a bit of lime juice and some extra onion and cilantro, and this paired really well with the slow cooker guisado verde recipe from this site! Just know it's gonna be hot!

Slow Cooker Guisado Verde

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I made this for tacos for a party-- super delicious! Used pork shoulder, jarred Herdez salsa verde, as tomatillos aren't quite in season here, and most of a bottle of Corona. Drained off most of the liquid after cooking in slow cooker all day, and shredded the meat. Yum. Yum. Yum!

Homemade Flour Tortillas

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I used shortening instead of lard (because frankly, eww!) and these still taste great. Use really hot water as well. Cooking on cast iron is a must! These are quick and so easy, I won't ever buy store-made tortillas again. I will say, this recipe doesn't make as many as it says, unless you make very tiny tortillas. But it's worth making another batch!

Corn and Black Bean Salad

Reviewed: Aug. 22, 2011
I didn't love this, but my guests seemed to. I think I was a little confused by the balsalmic bite in a mexican-style dish. But it was fresh tasting and lovely looking.

Surprisingly awesome! Used frozen limeade and water. This was a hit at our weekend party. Finally, a not-so-sweet margarita that you can sip on all evening!

Connie's Zucchini "Crab" Cakes

Reviewed: Aug. 15, 2011
Easy, satisfying recipe. I doubled the Old Bay, used panko instead of traditional bread crumbs and salted/pressed the zucchini before making the patties. I tried both the baking as another reviewer suggested (400* for 12 min, flipping, bake another 10 min) and frying as written-- there's no comparison. If you're going to eat something breaded, you might as well fry it and enjoy it as it's meant to be. :)
