Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Nov. 28, 2005
Delicious! My husband isn't usually very keen on fish but proclaimed that this was the best fish recipe we've ever made. Just get a nice fresh cut of salmon and you can't go wrong. I followed the recipe to a tee (except canola instead of peanut oil) for the marianade, and reserved the leftover marianade to thicken on the stove with a dash of honey to serve on/with the fish.

Moroccan Chicken

Reviewed: Apr. 24, 2003
I try recipes from this website all the time, has got to be one of my favorites. The spices were wonderful, and adding the tomato flavor and chick peas was a nice twist. I marinated the chicken overnight in the spices and ginger and garlic for extra flavor. We served this with couscous for a complete meal. Fabulous! :)

Pan-Fried Steak with Marsala Sauce

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2005
Very good indeed. Our only tip is - if you are not making your own chicken broth, use broth that comes in boxes and not cans. Otherwise, when the sauce reduces, you will be left with a slightly metallic taste using canned broth.

Cucumber Sunomono

Reviewed: Feb. 26, 2006
This reminds me of a similar cucumber dish my Mom makes - this one's is just a bit sweeter. My mom also includes thinly sliced red onion in her's - it adds a nice little variety in texture. A deliciously light side dish.

Hot and Spicy Tofu

Reviewed: Jan. 3, 2006
A wonderful and delicious find! We sliced our tofu into 1 x .5 inch rectangles and about 3 milimeters thick. Instead of just browning, we slightly deep fried it so that it was nice and crispy on the outside - not as healthy, but the texture is so much better! We also added about 1 tbs. of honey to the sauce to give it a bit more sweetness, and a handful of 'frying mushrooms' (my store carries this prepacked variety of shrooms best for frying, but shiitakes would work as well). This is a definite keeper of a recipe!

Stromboli

Reviewed: Oct. 28, 2006
This recipe was delicious, quick and a simple way of getting veggies into your kids (& hubby for that matter! :)). Instead of making one giant stromboli, I split the pizza dough into 4 pieces and made smaller versions. I used 6 oz of fresh mushrooms but the same proportions of everything else and found that I had at least a cup of leftover filling that I used w/ pasta the next day. Also I found that 1/4 c butter is a LOT. I used 2 tbs and that was plenty to saturate & glaze the strombolis. THey were just as yummy reheated in the oven the next day!

Indian Carrots, Peas and Potatoes

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2005
We love Indian food, particularly the vegetarian dishes. Unfortunately, this recipe fell short. We found it completely bland. However, we managed to save the dish by adding 1/4 cup of salsa, a pat of butter, extra salt & black pepper to it. We didn't have any in our pantry, but I assume canned tomatoes would've worked just as well as the salsa.

Aloo Matar

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
Loved this recipe! We used spicy Hungarian paprika, so I reduced it by 1/2 tsp and we added 1/2 cup more peas after reading some of the other reviews. It turned out fantastic! I think a lot of how this turns out has to do with the ginger garlic paste. We used 'Patak's Original' brand 'Spicy Ginger & Garlic Marianade & Grill Sauce Tandoori Mild'. If you are from areas where you have HEB Central Market stores - that is where we found our's. We also use it in the Chicken Makhani (Indian Butter Chicken) recipe from this site and it is just fabulous!

Morning Glory Muffins I

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2011
The perfect muffin - moist, delicious and nutritious and so easy to make! Taking the advice of the other reviewers, I used 1/2 c apple sauce in lieu of apple butter and omitted the walnuts bec of allergies. I had wheat germ but totally forgot to put it on, and they turned out just fine w/out it. I'm going to use just 1c sugar next time as it was a smidgen too sweet for my taste. Otherwise, this one is a definite keeper!

Chicken Biryani

Reviewed: Nov. 29, 2005
This was pretty good. I think I messed up in chopping the onions too finely as the mixture was quite liquid-y. And I think cooking the rice on the lowest setting on my stove was too low as it ended up being mushy as well. But texture aside, the flavors were mild, but very nice. I would season the potatoes & chicken a bit next time, or dice them a bit smaller, as they were a bit bland.

After School Veggie Pita

Reviewed: Jul. 15, 2005
Exceptional! And so very easy to make too! We didn't have slaw mix, so we shredded white and red cabbage, carrot & red onion instead. We also had a flavored hummus which made it even better I think. My husband who's not big into veggie 'sandwiches' raved and raved! This is definitely a keeper!

Cobb Salad

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2005
Delicious and quick to prepare. Added mushrooms for extra texture. My hubby loves the blue cheese, but it's a bit too strong for me - mine was just as good without it.

Jo-Ann's Power Bars

Reviewed: Jan. 7, 2013
So pleased to have found a versatile recipe for granola bars. Here are a few comments... 1) Done 'as is' the recipe comes out more cereal bar consistency than granola bar. I like mine a little crunchier so with the second batch, I formed them into bars before baking and they came out perfect! I saw a few reviewers doubling up the applesauce, so be aware before you decide to do this. 2) In lieu of the walnuts & fruits, you can substitute the same 1.5 cups of anything. We've tried mango with shredded and diced coconut and choc chip and coconut so far - delicious! 3) Taste before adding egg for sweetness. I actually only put 2 tbs. sugar and less honey bec I was using dried fruit which was already sweet. Plus, the 'raw dough' is delicious bec it has the crunch of the Grape Nuts :)

Savory Green Beans

Reviewed: Feb. 19, 2009
This ridiculously simple recipe is amazingly delicious!! The pancetta and shallots make the dish so fragrant. We've also used it with asparagus with the same excellent results!

Best Potatoes Ever!

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
Very good and a great alternative to heavier tasting Indian dishes. Even better overnight. I didn't have mango powder and just added lemon juice to taste instead. I'd love to see how this tastes with the mango powder tho' - maybe next time!

Honey Walnut Shrimp

Reviewed: Nov. 12, 2006
This is truly a restaurant quality recipe! The glut. rice flour makes the world of difference and the shrimp even crisp up perfectly in the toaster oven for leftover. I toss the shrimp in the sauce over a low heat so the whole dish was heated through and the sauce thinned a bit. SO good!

Beef Stroganoff III

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2005
SO GOOD!! We changed it up a little bit by using fresh baby bella mushrooms which we sauteed in butter before adding to the dish. We also added one whole onion (in addition to the green onions). Finally, we added some Worcestershire to the beef in addition to the salt and pepper to add more flavor. Served with egg noodles. We'll definitely be making this recipe for years to come!

Herb Roasted Pork Loin and Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2004
Very simple, yummy dish! We made a couple of modifications though - we seared the pork briefly before putting it in the oven, so the juices were sealed in. We also seasoned our potatoes and baked them with the pork to add flavor, and also added carrots to the mix. The last 15 minutes or so, we actually broiled the whole dish to give it a nice crispy outer layer. This dish doesn't keep very well, as the pork tends to dry out - so eat this right away if you can!

Shish Tawook Grilled Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 10, 2012
We thought this was completely tasteless! I made it true to recipe and we were so excited to taste it bec it smelled awesome on the grill. It came out nice and tender but was so bland that we had to conjure up our own curry sauce to go with it. I suppose if you like really mild tasting chicken, try this. Else, I would at least double the spices I think, or let marinade more than 24 hours.
