Sausage Stuffed Jalapenos

Reviewed: May 23, 2008
These were the first to go at my get-together. You will love these even if you dont normally like spicy food b/c by scraping off the jalapeno seeds, it removes alot of the heat while leaving great flavor. I also used this recipe for stuffed zucchini.

Kongnamool (Korean Soybean Sprouts)

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
These soybean sprouts were delicious. The chili sauce/paste was a bit too smoky, but I didn't knock off any points to my rating bc I used regular chili poweder in lieu of Korean chili powder (as I didn't have the Korean type on hand). This might have made a difference on the smokiness. I balanced it out with the juice of 1 lime and a splash of rice vinegar. (I also followed previous posters' advice and lessend the amount of sesame oil. The paste/sauce was quite tasty when mixed in with the sprouts. The recipe as is was deserving of my 5star rating. However, I chose to add something crunchy: I sauteed raw top ramen noodles, slivered almonds and sesame seeds with butter on a skillet and then toasted them in the oven. I crumbled them up over the sprouts and it was just the right touch.

Vietnamese Fresh Spring Rolls

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
Great spring roll. Its very fresh, super healthy and 2-3 of these could be a full entree. Great option for the health conscious! Even though it has vermicelli, its such a small amount in each roll that its still low carb. I used bib lettuce and also added shredded carrots and diced jalapenos. I also omitted the mint.

Easy OREO Truffles

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2012
Major hit with the kids (and adults)! The only problem is that its messy to prepare. There must be an easier way to roll the truffles. Other than, I would definitely make them again.

Easy Hawaiian Chicken Packets

Reviewed: Jul. 20, 2012
THis was surprisingly good! I made "one big packet" due to time restraints. I used chicken tenders instead of breasts and also added ginger powder. I put all ingredients in a baking dish and covered it with aluminum foil, then baked it in the oven.

Napa Cabbage Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2012
I'm primarily rating the crunchy topping and veggies bc I changed the marinade/dressing quite a bit (as I had different oils/vinegars on hand and I wanted to avoid the sugar for dietary reasons. So, I omitted the sugar, added chili powder, used sesame oil in lieu of veggie oil and rice vinegar and lime in lieu of cider vinegar.The crunchy topping is a great topping to any salad, cooked collared beans, spinach, sprouts, etc..

I added 2 tsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed 4. I added 2 pinches of salt 5. I Lowered temp to 350 and baked for exactly 60 min. for doubled batch (check it early though, depending on your oven can be done within 55 min. )

Orange Jewel

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2012
Great tasting base! I made substitutions to make it healthier. I used 3 large fresh oranges, 1 cup lowfat milk, 1 1/2 cups nonfat plain yogurt and 2-3 T of agave nectar. The recipe doesn't specify the amount of vanilla extract. I used 1 tsp.

Classic Hash Browns

Reviewed: Sep. 6, 2013
Super easy and tasty! I think the cayenne & paprika are optional. They tasted great with just salt & pepper. I didn't shred mine. Instead, I diced them up real small. They took longer though. (About 30-35 min.)

Stuffed Pattypan Squash

Reviewed: Jun. 20, 2014
So tasty! I only made one small change. I added shredded mixed cheese to mixture. I will note that I used a 3 inch wide patty pan and I cooked it for only 5 min in the water, then 20 in the oven. My squash did not turn out mushy at all this way. As far as portions for 1 squash...I used 2 tbsp of onions, 1 slice bacon, 1 tbsp breadcrumbs, abt 1/4 c shredded cheese, about 1 tbsp parmesan and it looked like about 2tbs of the scooped out squash. Oh, I did put in a pinch of minced garlic, pinch of salt & pepper. This was perfect for 1 serving. It was delicious!

Steak Salad

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2013
The dressing is tasty. I ended up adding a bit more red wine vinegar and only used 1/4 c olive oil bc it tasted a bit too oily for me. I used petite sirloin steak and seasoned it with salt, pepper and garlic powder -just a pinch of each.

Pollo (Chicken) Fricassee from Puerto Rico

Reviewed: Nov. 16, 2008
Excellent dish! I'd describe this dish as extremely flavorful, moist, saucy and actually quite healthy. I served it alongside a salad. Its very filling and tasty even without a carb alongside it. I made only slight changes: 1) To make it healthier, I substituted the chicken legs for skinless, boneless, chicken tenders (I used 3 packets, so I also doubled the potatos). 2) The chicken rub calls for sazon seasoning which I did not have. So, I looked it up online and made my own version of it: 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 1/2 tsp coriander powder, 1 tbl paprika, 1/4 tsp salt, about 1 tbl tabasco sauce, about 2 tbl white wine or rice vinegar. These ingredients are some of the ingredients included in the actual sazon. Other ingredients were already in the Adobo seasoning, so I didn't bother duplicating those. 3) I thought the original recipe needed to be a bit saucier, so I added 2 cups chicken broth. This dish gave me a whole new perspective on puerto rican food and could actually turn into a staple in our household! By the way, I wanted to mention that I think you could easily make-ahead the sauce in the blender to save time. Second time I made it: I roasted the peppers, garlic and onion for about 24 min. using 1/2 the evol called for in the recipe. I did everything else the same. It was amazing!

Magic Cookie Bars II

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2014
Tips: Mix crumbs with butter separately. Consider doubling crumb mixture for thicker base. I also felt that 1 cup of coconut flakes was plenty. Bake until flakes are toasty.
