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.

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2011
Great texture and very easy to make. I added some cinnamon and used raisins instead of the butterscotch bits. My husband loved these too.

Okonomiyaki

Reviewed: Apr. 20, 2011
I made this with plain white flour, and used chopped cabbage, chopped zucchini, bell pepper, and seafood sticks. It was very easy to do and came out really flavorful and my husband liked it too. We would definitely make this again.

Persian Cucumber Yogurt (Maast-o Khiar)

Reviewed: Apr. 5, 2011
Absolutely gorgeous! I ate mine with celery sticks for a light snack but would definitely serve it with lamb or spicy chicken and rice. I didn't have any shallots so I used a half a tablespoon of dried onion flakes instead, and chilled it overnight. I also used 2% fat plain yogurt from Sainsbury's. I am going to serve this with the brisket during Passover for a real Middle Eastern meal.

Skillet Corn Bread

Reviewed: Feb. 13, 2011
This came out really well. The texture was terrific. I omitted the white flour and used all cornmeal, based on personal preference. It took a little longer to cook the first side and the bread a slightly eggy taste, but that could be down to my substitution. I would definitely make this again.

Sage Pork Chops

Reviewed: Oct. 14, 2010
This recipe made the best pork chops I have ever tasted, and they had the most tender texture. I simmered them in my cast iron skille, and when they were finished I added some flour to the remaining liquid and made gravy. The only change I made was to use vegetarian bouillon powder instead of beef bouillon cubes, because that's what I had on hand. I think next time I would probably reduce the salt slightly. I served them with mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli.

Lamb Tagine

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2010
I didn't follow the recipe exactly and it still came out really good. I used Quorn chicken pieces instead of lamb. I added two heaped dessert spoons (about 1/3 cup) of white flour to the bag of spices. I substituted 1 tsp of garam masala for all the ground spices. I only refrigerated the bag of chicken and spices for about fifteen minutes while I cut up the carrots. I also substituted onion powder for whole onions. I only cooked the tagine for 45-60 minutes. Even with all these changes, it was really really good! I served it with couscous that I made with a chicken stock cube and diced dried apricots.

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: Jan. 9, 2010
This cake is a breeze to make, tastes great and has a moist crumb. My mother asked me for the recipe, I don't know what higher praise a girl could ask for.

Tortilla Soup II

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2011
Excellent. I couldn't get diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (I'm in England), so I just used a canplain chopped tomatoes, and half a jar of Discovery brand jalapeno slices in brine. I also did not have lime juice so used lemon juice instead. I also cut the cumin down to .25 tsp because I usually find cumin overpowers the other flavors. The soup came out absolutely delicious. My husband loved it and I am going to serve the leftovers with rice tonight.

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.

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.

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.

My Best Clam Chowder

Reviewed: Apr. 30, 2012
Fantastic, and so easy! I added some chopped up broiled bacon to the soup when I added the cream/roux. Husband loved it. I couldn't find clams so I bought a jar of pickled cockles, which I wasn't sure would work but it turned out I didn't have any vinegar in the house so it worked out fine.

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.

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.
