Beer Margaritas

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2014
I made it just as written, using Jose Cuervo Silver and Corona Light. It made for a refreshing drink to go with a catered meal from Chipotle. I wasn't sure how much ice to add, and probably diluted the alcohol too much when I added about the same volume of ice as there was liquid. Made 36 quarts (including the ice)and there was not a drop left after 3.5 hours, between 20 people.

Quinoa and Black Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 29, 2012
I've made this 3 times now, and it's a hit each time. Goes particularly well with grilled meats.

For best results, use small jalapenos the size of 2 bites.Absolutely freeze them for 15 mins. prior to grilling.

Curried Coconut Chicken

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Very good balance of flavors. Not like some overly-cloying curries.

Chicken Tikka Masala

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Restauant quality taste. At the suggestion of others, I reduced salt in the marinade and the sauce to 1 tsp each, and added garam masala to both.

Cucumber Raita

Reviewed: Jun. 10, 2012
Very good and easy to make. I took the advice of one reviewer and sprinkled salt on the sliced cucumber, let it bleed some liquid out, before squeezing it adding it to the yogurt mixture. Perfect finished texture.

Barbecue Ribs

Reviewed: May 28, 2012
The combined baking & grilling cooking method rendered the most tender ribs that I've ever made. The marinade caramelizes and encrusts the tender meat, making a nice textural contrast with each bite. I used an Asian Sriracha for the chile sauce, which probably confused the palate; still there was a nice heat to the flavor. I just wish it was a tad sweeter.

Best Carrot Cake Ever

Reviewed: Mar. 24, 2012
Excellent flavor (not too sweet and multi-dimensional) and texture. Thanks for the recipe! Frosted with Philadelphia Cream Cheest frosting found online. I picked up a few tips from earlier reviewers, like straining the (measured) shredded carrots in cheesecloth, increasing cinnamon (to 5 tsp) and adding 1/4 tsp each of allspice, clove, ginger, and nutmeg. Served cupcakes to a crowd of 22, aged 3 to 86. Every single one yummed it up!

Refried Beans Without the Refry

Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2012
Easy to make, but nothing outstanding about the taste. I halved the recipe, and still had so much left over from dinner for 8.

Manicotti Alla Romana

Reviewed: Jul. 23, 2011
Made as is, except used half Italian sausage/half ground beef, and 2% milk instead of half-and-half. I used Classico brand Sweet Basil jar spaghetti sauce. Buono! The textures were so good: al dente pasta, firm manicotti filling, moist, non-runny sauce. For presentation, I ladled the white sauce to cover the entire length of each shell, letting it run down the sides. I then spooned the red sauce just on top along the length of each shell, so that the white sauce could be seen. After uncovering, I sprinkled Parmesan on top of the red sauce. (See the picture for how pretty it looked.) Thanks for sharing!

Scott Ure's Clams And Garlic

Reviewed: Jul. 12, 2011
Using Pinot Grigio, I made the oil-garlic-wine concoction at home. Bottled it for transport to a local oyster farm. Put mussels (no clams available that day) in aluminum foil pouches, poured a bit of wine concoction in pouches before sealing and putting on the bbq grill. Opened the pouches after 10-12 min., drizzled the contents with butter & parsley. Voila... delectable, elegant steamed mussels at a picnic! Thanks for the recipe!

Asparagus, Feta and Couscous Salad

Reviewed: Jun. 17, 2011
Didn't have cherry tomatoes, so I used steamed diced carrots to get the coloring in the dish. I like how the dressing doesn't overpower the nuttiness of the couscous. I did add about 1/4 tsp. lemon juice to the dressing, to tie in with the Grilled Lemon Herb Pork Chops I served with it, also on this site.

Andrea's Pasta Fagioli

Reviewed: Jun. 8, 2011
I substituted diced tomatoes for tomato sauce, and broth for water. Microwaved a 10 oz block of frozen leaf spinach and added that in the end, with the pasta. I felt mighty righteous for making such a nutritious dish! It was so good, served with Aidells Artichoke & Garlic and crusty bread on the side.

Sesame Seared Tuna

Reviewed: Jun. 4, 2011
Thanks for sharing! Easy & tasty recipe for when one spots great looking ahi tuna at the market. I didn't have and definitely missed the wasabi paste, because without it, the dipping sauce could be a bit cloying to the palate. Served with creamy mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus spears.
