Saffron Rice

Reviewed: Feb. 3, 2007
This is very exquisite. It really celebrates the saffron. It's ok to cut back on the butter and to use different flavors of broth or stock. Fresh parsley is better than dried. Really a great side dish. Food coloring is super not necessary. Also, a small splash of cream and a couple of tablespoons of parmesan cheese make this even better. Great comfort food side!

Chef John's Caramel Chicken

Reviewed: Jan. 28, 2013
Really good. I used a wok, counter to popular belief that it wouldn't carmelize quickly.

Grilled Pork Tenderloins

Reviewed: Apr. 13, 2010
Really good. Kids ended up not having dinner that night so only prepared one of the tenderloins. On the second night (the well-marinated) other tenderloin morphed into pork stir fry. Chopped into bite size pieces, and lightly, very lightly coated with flour before cooking in a TBSP oil. Added a little siracha sauce and brown sugar to the orignal sauce, browned the pork really well, and stirred in the sauce. Simmered for 10 minutes. Garnish with sesame seeds and cilantro. Serve with rice.

Javi's Really Real Mexican Ceviche

Reviewed: Mar. 23, 2010
Shrimp were ok, but ahi tuna and halibut are the best. Cut raw fish into little bite size pieces and let sit until they "cook".

Sesame Noodles

Reviewed: Jul. 25, 2007
The first time I made this, it was a little less than 4 stars. I added chicken, which needed more flavor, and did not add any cilantro. The second time, I just made the noodles and added fresh Cilantro. Also a dash (1/2 tsp) of Chili Oil. Next, the recipe calls for 6 TBS oil -- which makes it a bit greasy, so I reduced and used about 3 1/2 TBS. This made it great. Great with Broccoli Beef I here at the website...

Mexican Fire Rice

Reviewed: Apr. 1, 2007
The kids love this. If you want more flavor -- I use chicken broth instead of water and canned El Pato sauce in my rice before I add the rest of the ingredients (the El Pato sauce doesn't really add a lot of liquid, so keep on about the same proportions of liquid as before.) I've also noticed that the HOT rather than MEDIUM picante sauce makes it almost too spicy, but you can scale up or down depending on your taste. Also, add a little minced onions, garlic and celery in the meat (hot pork sausage and/or ground beef) makes it really really good. I didn't use too much cheese on top at first, but this is the best part. The kids also like this inside burritos. Great! UPDATE: I was out of Sour Cream so I used Ranch dressing -- not 8 ounces, but just enough to get the creaminess through the mixture. Came out great and no one mentioned the difference.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
There are a lot of suggestions here that are great: cut back on the oil, add cilantro, add lemon zest, add chick peas, add minced red onion, add a bit of garlic. I also liked the suggestion to add cumin. In my haste, I reached for the curry powder rather than the cumin. I discovered what I was doing about 1/4 tsp into adding curry powder. This however, is what really made it. I went back and grabbed some cumin too, but altogether really spectacular. Funny what mistakes can do for you sometimes!

Jalapeno Popper Cups

Reviewed: Feb. 4, 2011
I used the crescent roll dough without the seams. I just spread the ingredients on the dough square and rolled the dough. Then sliced to make cute little pinwheels. Placed on cookie sheet face up. Baked according to crescent roll dough directions. Might try next with puff pastry.

Fabulous Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2012
My kids love this soup. I've only had one head of Califlower like most people, so I've added parsnips and potatoes in the roast. (carrots are good too). Never have tried cream but sounds delish. Unfortunately, we can't afford the extra calories (or I can't). Lowfat and non-fat milk are fine though!

Marinated Pork Tenderloin

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2009
Really good. I didn't have apricot nectar but I did have orange juice and apricot preserves, which I mixed together to get to about the same consistency as nectar. Sorry to those of you who would rather that people follow directions exactly. Better than just salt & pepper!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2008
Yikes! This was hot. I used the Chinese-style chili/garlic sauce and it was on fire. My family likes that kind of stuff and the flavor was absolutely great, but next time, I think I'll cut back a bit. I added green onion and cilantro and cooked until nice and brown before adding the sauce. also good to just let it soak before cooking in these things. Served with jasmine rice and cool cucumber salad. With modifications, this will be a 6 star.

Thai-Style Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2008
This is a relatively easy recipe with authentic flavor. I didn't have pickled ginger so I just used a bit of fresh. Tastes like the restaurant down the street. Thanks!

Sweet and Spicy Chicken Satay

Reviewed: Mar. 26, 2008
For another, different recipe, I had already started marinating or soaking chicken in Salt &Pepper, diced onion, crushed garlic, cilantro, green onions, and cayenne when I stumbled across this recipe. I changed my plans and used this instead. It was awesome. This needs ginger -- if you have fresh, better, but spice rack will do the trick. Add a little red pepper too. Quite honestly, the richness in flavor was just under the mark, but I think with a little more marinating/soaking, this would be a six star. I found a peanut sauce recipe on the site (with fish sauce, chili oil, and vinegar), and it was great. Everyone knew that we were having Satay when they walked in the house. Served with basmati rice with a couple of peas/cilantro/ and green onion thrown in. Muy bueno. If I knew how to say "really good" in Thai, then you get the picture. As an update, strips of pork tenderloin work really well too, and they're low fat!

Lemon Cheesecake

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
Excellent with modifications. I made a crust out of graham crackers and butter, adding in about a tsp of lemon zest. I used low fat Yoplait lemon yogurt -- it's only 6 oz. so I added about 2 oz. of lemon curd. Also, added about a TBS of lemon zest to the pie itself to make it really lemony. I used regular cream cheese which made it very creamy and two regular eggs. Needs the sour cream topping as suggested by another reviewr. Really good and lemony. A water bath is recommended below the pie to avoid cracking. I've had requests to make this again and will update!

Roasted Vegetables

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2007
Wow. I only made a half recipe and there was still a lot of food, but really delicious way to make these veggies. It's the right combination of sweet (from the basalmic, squash, and sweet potatoes) and salt. I added minced Garlic to the basalmic and olive oil. I didn't have yukon golds yesterday but used russets. The russets were the best flavor of them all and I'm not sure I'd want the sweeter softer yukons. Made sure to use fresh rosemary and thyme as well. A Keeper.

Kale and Cucumber Salad with Lemon Tahini Dressing

Reviewed: Aug. 3, 2014
Read this, and then later, made it from memory -- forgot the soy sauce, water and garlic and it still came out really good. Used crasins instead of golden raisins which I never ever have laying around since I don't like them. Probably didn't miss the garlic since I put thin strips of red onion in it too (I thought I saw that...) All said, a definite keeper and like the idea of adding avocado so will try next.

Au Gratin Potatoes II

Reviewed: May 27, 2007
Really excellent. I followed the advice of one of the raters and added a clove of pressed garlic. I also added some celery salt to complement the cream of celery soup. Also since I used the (pre-cooked) Simply Potatoes (1 bag + about 1/4 bag), I could taste it to see how much more salt & pepper it needed. Cooked longer per other raters. People had seconds and third and ate 'til we couldn't have any more.
