Big Soft Ginger Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2005
My first batch came out flat and too chewy, so I turned the oven down. The cookies fluffed up in the oven, but flattened out as they cooled. Oh, and the cookies tasted terrific and were gone in a flash despite the texture.

Salmon Patties I

Reviewed: Dec. 12, 2005
I made some changes to this recipe because I didn't have an onion. I added a teaspoon of dijon mustard, a teaspoon of lemon juice, half a teaspoon of black pepper, two tablespoons of sour cream, and a dash of tabasco. The patties came out delicious, and I am giving this recipe five stars because it provides a great base that you can personalize to your taste.

San Francisco Sourdough Bread

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2005
Maybe it's because I'm in London and the climate is different, but this recipe did not work for me at all. My starter was only two weeks old as well, so not very mature. I had to take it out of the oven before the inside was done because the outside was quite brown. I have cooked other breads and cookies in that oven, so I don't think that was it. The inside was dense and undercooked. The bread did not taste sour at all, and is pretty inedible. Maybe I can feed it to the ducks. Maybe I will wait another two weeks and try this recipe again.

Low-Cal Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
I made this with two chicken breasts, and used Splenda for the artificial sweetener. I took another reviewer's advice to turn the chicken breasts halfway through cooking. The chicken was very good, but not very exciting. I would add half a teaspoon of sesame oil next time.

Salsa Chicken Burrito Filling

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2005
I moved from California to London three months ago and this recipe is just what I've been craving. I forgot to add the taco seasoning, used a whole can of diced tomatoes, red and green tabasco, and some chopped up red chiles. I used the Spicy Bean Salsa recipe from this site for the salsa. I made burritos with the chicken and some low-fat cheese and they were excellent.

Lower Fat Banana Bread I

Reviewed: Jan. 1, 2006
Good recipe. I used 2/3 cup whole wheat flour, 1/3 cup brown sugar and 1/3 cup S*lenda, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and a dash each of ginger, nutmeg, clove, and vanilla extract. I only had one egg on hand, and the bread came out okay but it crumbled a bit when I sliced it.

Easy Shrimp Dinner

Reviewed: Jan. 11, 2006
I thought this recipe tasted like it was from a Chinese restaurant. I didn't have cornstarch, green onions, snow peas or tomatoes. I substitued with flour, 1 tsp ground ginger, and broccolli. Came out perfect.

Basic British Scones

Reviewed: Mar. 10, 2006
This recipe is fabulous! I've never been able to make decent biscuits, but these scones just popped right up like nobody's business. I think I put in a bit of extra sugar because I didn't have a 1/8 c measure and had to eyeball it. The scones came out perfect--not too sweet and not too bland. The only thing I would do differently next time is use a bigger cookie cutter, I think they would be better if they were about 4" in diameter.

Easy Quiche

Reviewed: May 25, 2006
This was my first quiche. I put artichoke hearts, button mushrooms, and half a packet of onion soup mix in mine. It came out alright but it wasn't fluffy enough for me. Next time I will try adding an extra egg. There wasn't really a crust either, but I was pleased that the quiche came out of the pan easily. I baked it in a fluted pie plate. Finally, it needed way less than fifty minutes, so keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't burn.

Broccoli Beef I

Reviewed: Jul. 31, 2006
This recipe is easy and tastes wonderful. I served it over rice and it tasted just like my favorite Chinese restaurant in San Francisco. I added more garlic and ginger, and some black pepper.

Puttanesca I

Reviewed: Aug. 10, 2006
This came out very well. I added some cayenne pepper, a little Tabasco and some black pepper because I have a cold and need something extra spicy. Very quick and easy recipe.

Chicken Pot Pie IX

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2006
This recipe was easy to follow and came out wonderfully. I used store bought chilled puff pastry for the crust. I didn't have any peas or celery on hand, but the filling was still thick and satisfying. Also, I found the directions for the gravy made the best lump-free roux I've ever made! I will use the directions for gravy in the future. This is definitely a keeper.

Butter Icing for Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 14, 2006
This icing did not work for me. It was soupy and wouldn't get thick.

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: Aug. 24, 2006
Unbelievable! This was super easy to make. I had all the ingredients on hand. I made it with leftover taco meat and used Coleman's prepared mustard, so it was spicier than the recipe intended. Definitely will keep this in the front of the recipe file.

Beef and Barley Soup III

Reviewed: Aug. 29, 2006
This recipe is a very good base for someone making soup for the first time. I used leftover brisket and added the drippings, a handful of peppercorns, and whole garlic cloves. Perfect for those blustery nights.

Chicken Vegetable Barley Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 18, 2006
This recipe was kind of bland so I had to add some herbs. It is a good basic recipe that you can edit to suit yourself so I gave it three stars.

Vegetable Chowder

Reviewed: Nov. 10, 2006
Great base for a creamy soup. I used onions, garlic, carrots, celery and broccoli. Left out the cheese entirely. Turned out delicious and I would definitely make it again.

Hot and Sour Chinese Eggplant

Reviewed: Oct. 2, 2007
The eggplant tasted great but when I put it over rice noodles, there wasn't enough sauce for the noodles. Next time I will double the sauce but use the same amount of vegetables.

Spinach Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 24, 2007
I was going to try baking the fritters instead of frying them, to reduce the fat, but the mixture was too runny to make a patty. Instead, I poured the mixture into a muffin tin and baked it at 350 (175C) for about half an hour. It came out great and I would definitely make it again. I also added celery salt and some dill. I'm giving the recipe four stars because it was a great idea and a good base.
