Speedy Salmon Patties

Reviewed: Aug. 21, 2010
I doubled this recipe, and don't recommend it. It ended up being far too salty. Next time, I would omit the 1/4 teaspoon and rely on the saltines for the salt. So if you double it, omit the salt.

Cantaloupe Sherbet

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
It was ok. It is not very sweet; next time I would add more sugar. Easy to make, although it takes time to freeze. I recommend putting the slush into the containers you plan to serve it in (ie. portion sized) during the 2nd phase of pureeing, as it will be much more presentable. If you stick with the 9x13 dish, you can also cut into squares to serve - it's easy to cut & serve immediately.

Cantaloupe Bread with Praline Glaze

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2010
Pretty good. I added extra cantaloupe and didn't use the praline glaze. It was sweet enough without it. The bread is very moist and has a cake-like texture. It reminds me of pumpkin bread.

Avocado, Tomato and Mango Salsa

Reviewed: Jun. 27, 2010
TIP: Use a colander to drain the salsa after chilling it for the half hour. It leaves the right amount of liquid. Otherwise, it can be too watery depending on your tomatoes. TIP2: I used 1.5 tbsp of oil and that was enough. 1/2 tbsp might work too if you're looking to have healthier meals. OVERALL: delicious! I served on top of tilapia and flounder marinaded in apricot juice and orange zest. It also has beautiful presentation, with vivid colors and contrasts. I used more mango and diced the jalapeno (instead of mincing). Two tablespoons of lime juice require 2 limes. Very easy and quick to make. :)

Sloppy Joes II

Reviewed: May 21, 2010
This recipe is a delicious and great for a quick weeknight dinner. I followed the recipe exactly and it has a nice tang. I doubt it would feed 6 adults though. It would serve four people, max.

Mango Cashew Salad

Reviewed: May 16, 2010
Make sure to use a good balsamic vinegar, as it can make or break this recipe (5% acidity is a good rule of thumb). Very quick to make and tastes good, if weird. My bf liked it. I threw the mixture, minus the cashews, into a Tupperware container (like another reviewer), shook it thoroughly, and stuck it in the fridge for 15 minutes. Add the cashews right before serving so as to keep their crunch. I also cut the mango into the same square shape as the applies. Cut the cinnamon to 1/4 tsp, which was a good idea.

Mango Shortbread Bars

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
Very yummy, but the flavor of the mangoes is almost lost. The only real indication is that they were the tiniest bit more tangy than apples. Next time, I'll save money and substitute apples for the mangoes. The shortbread is delicious! Be careful about reserving part of the crumb mixture and not mixing it all in with the mangoes. I halved the recipe w/o problems, but make sure to shorten the cooking time.

Macadamia-Crusted Sea Bass with Mango Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Apr. 16, 2010
I used about 3/4 a mango and subbed cashews for the macadamia and flounder fillets for the sea bass. Very tasty - especially the mango cream sauce. Unlike another reviewer, I would not omit the nut/crumb coating, as it added a complimentary texture with the sauce. I left out the olive oil from the bread crumb mixture. This is an easy, tasty recipe for many kinds of fish.

Frog Cupcakes

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
Used yellow cake mix and made my own powered sugar frosting. For ease, I just bought a tube of chocolate frosting and used it to dot the eyeballs and draw the mouths - less hassle than sticking chocolate chips on marshmallows and separating the frosting. They are *very* cute and would be great for a young child's birthday party. Tip: Tear apart twizzlers and let it hang out of the mouth like a frog's tongue. You could even add a raisin or chocolate chip at the end so it looks like a fly. :D

Big Charlie's Gumbo

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2010
This gumbo was decent. Don't fear making the roux - it is simple: stir, wait 20 seconds, stir again. Honestly, I was fascinated as it became darker and darker. I subbed cooked bratwurst for the andouille sausage (dad hates them), and omitted the crabmeat, beef stew, and okra. Added chicken and extra shrimp. I halved the hot sauce. Next time I may decrease the amount of Worcestershire sauce, as its taste was on the border of overpowering the rest of the flavors. Unlikely to make it again - too much work and time for the result.

Spicy Mango Sweet Potato Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 8, 2010
We really enjoyed this dish. It was quick - one of those dishes where something else is simmering or cooling while you're prepping the next step. The sauce reminds me of Chinese sweet and sour sauce. I used 2 tbsps of hot sauce, no red pepper flakes, and deboned chicken thighs. I also had to add 3 tsp of corn starch (w/ the accompanying 3 tbsp water) in order to get the sauce to reach a thicker consistency. I didn't drain the chicken after transferring it to another dish. If you like sweet and sour chicken, give this a try. The mango provides a complimentary taste. I might try yams next time.

Banana Cake VI

Reviewed: Mar. 4, 2010
Delicious. I was not able to try it because I'd given up sweets for Lent, but other people (who have told me before when something was not up to par) described it as "perfect" and "the best thing you've baked." I followed the recipe exactly, except I didn't mash the bananas with lemon juice - I just mashed them when need in order to avoid browning. I dyed the frosting yellow for a more banana related appearance.

Italian Cream Cake II

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
Made this for a party. Friends liked it, although they mentioned the frosting tasted like pure sugar. I added to the presentation by dying coconut red and sprinkling it on top of the case. I omitted pecans, and like other reviewers, kept the coconut separate from the frosting.

Asparagus Cashew Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
I liked this a lot - it's a great side dish that is easy, especially when cooking other side dishes/entrees. It consists of household ingredients. I cut the serving size in half, and still cooked the rice mixture for 20 minutes to get to the final, cooked consistency. I added more asparagus.

Easy Valentine Sandwich Cookies

Reviewed: Feb. 27, 2010
Very pretty presentation. I made all the cookies 1 large size, and used a sharp knife to cut out heart shapes in the middle of half of the cookies before baking. The turned out nicely shaped (see photo if you like) - so no need for 2 complimentary sized cookie cutters. I used pink frosting to frost the tops of some and added red sprinkles; others I used strawberry jam in the middle w/ frosted tops; other strawberry jam without frosting tops. All of them looked lovely. As far as taste- just ok.

Indian-Style Salmon Fry

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2010
Very easy and quick dish to prepare. It did not have as much kick as I expected, and actually was a little bit bland. But overall, great, easy dish for a weeknight meal and a clever use of canned salmon.

Kulfi

Reviewed: Jan. 26, 2010
Tastes like authentic kulfi. My Indian bf was in awe that it tasted like authentic kulfi and wanted me to make it for his mom when they next visit from India. I wanted to try different flavors, so I divided the given recipe (including the cardamom) into different sections and tried the following flavors: cinnamon, rose (via rose water, which was the best flavor), pineapple (pineapple juice), and extra cardamon. They were all wonderful. I also used wheat bread as I didn't have white bread on hand, and it didn't make any difference. I also used 1/2 light whipped topping and 1/2 normal. My favorite flavors were the cinnamon and rose, although they were all delicious. I put each in portion sized little tupperwares with lids, making for an easy, anytime snack-sized dessert.

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cake

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2010
The cake is not at all sweet. I baked in a 9x 13, which is perfect, size wise. Cake is of cake-like consistency, but just not tasty. The chocolate chips help add to it, but not enough. Won't make again.

Caramel Apple Pork Chops

Reviewed: Jan. 14, 2010
Pork chops didn't soak up the flavor. I 1.5x the sauce. Would try something else next time.
