Harvest Rice Dish

Reviewed: Dec. 25, 2004
I would really like to give this rice a 5 star but I think I am conflicted. I followed the directions to the "tee" and came out with a very wonderfully flavored brown and wild rice. The only problem was that the wild rice did not cook completely. It was very crunchy and I was reading that some other member had the same issue. I also might follow the suggestions of some of you that used the prepackaged wild rice mixes or just using nothing but brown rice. The wild rice, though, gives a very impressive presentation. I would also recommending seasoning the cranberry/almond mixture before adding it to the rice with good old salt and pepper. Really makes a difference. Thanks for the recipe

Chocolate Mint Candies Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 21, 2004
The chocolate wafer was delicious and the finally application of the Andes mints was very easy. The only issue I had was the cookie really didn't seem to present well. I tried swirling the Andes mints with both a toothpick and a spoon to see if I could get a better swirl of the green mint through the chocolate. Just felt like I needed a "prettier" cookie for my Christmas cookie gifts.

Honey Mustard Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 18, 2004
My family enjoyed this one. I made one change. I sprinkled a little sea salt on the chicken along with the curry, paprika and pepper. I also used boneless, skinless chicken thighs which came out very tender and juicy, and unfortunately, more fatty. I will try breast meat next time.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2004
These pork chops were somewhat of a disappointment. They were not at all moist. I think cutting back on the cooking time is key here. I used bone in chops that were quite thick. Not sure if that was a problem. Probably will not use this again.

Artichoke Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2004
This recipe was unbelievably simply and has a delicious end result. Leftovers are still as tasty. Great recipe when you have no time and want something tasty. Will keep this one!
