Simple Coleslaw

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2008
Okay, LOVED the combination of the cabbage and lettuce! It kind of reminded me of a wilted lettuce salad. I had to omit a few ingred. since I didn't have them on hand. But, still loved the way it turned out. Just used cabbage/lettuce combo w/dressing. I did use all the dressing ingred. called for (didn't have green onion so used chopped white onion) but, added about 1/4c. sour cream. Mixed with cabbage/lettuce & refrig. a few hours before serving.

Crazy Cake

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
What a SUPER, SUPER easy cake to make & I had all the ingred. in my kitchen. Unfortunally I didn't get to try it, since the cake plate came back empty! I was told it was good, but, not great---however, for a quick homemade cake in a pinch--this is it!

Chicken Breasts with Herb Basting Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 7, 2008
Everyone like this. It was really easy to make too. I did put the bone-in chicken breast in a zip lock baggie with the seasonings and marinated it a couple hours before I baked it. I didn't baste the chicken very well either (no baster here) & it still turned out moist and flavorful.

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken

Reviewed: Feb. 2, 2008
This was really good. I doubled the sauce (except I didn't quite double the soy sauce & used low-sodium). As suggested I floured the chicken pieces & preheated the sauce before adding to chicken. It cooked up really nicely---thickened & was sticky when I placed it on the rice.

Reviewed: Feb. 1, 2008
Winner! Replaced some of the butter with olive oil & added a little white wine. Served with parm. cheese. Could not have been easier to create such an impressive looking meal.

Mock Tuna Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 18, 2008
lol...it does look just like tuna salad! I don't think it tastes that much like it, but, it's not bad. I ate it on a bun, but, next time I'll use it to make a lettuce roll. As a healthy lunch alternative this is definitly a keeper.

Fruity Curry Chicken Salad

Reviewed: Jan. 15, 2008
Yum...this was SO good! We love curry, so, I was temped to put more in, but, I'm glad I didn't because the next day the flavors really came through & it was just the right amount of curry powder!

Sour Cream Chicken Quiche

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
This was very good. I made it for dinner & everyone really liked it. I had to make a few changes since I didn't either have enough ingred. or none at all. Didn't have green pepper, so had to omit (but, I think it could of used it--even a red pepper). Didn't have enough cheese so sub. some grated asiago & cream cheese--tasted really good anyways. Served a veggie on the side. I think this may replace my old tried and true quiche recipe!

Honey Ribs

Reviewed: Jan. 13, 2008
I was dissapointed in how these turned out. But, I think it was the cut of meat & the bbq sauce I used. It was very, very easy & the meat was fall off the bone tender, but, not spicy enough for us & the sauce was too thin.

Pretzel Coated Fried Fish

Reviewed: Jan. 10, 2008
Followed the recipe, except used talapia instead of cod & boy where these good! Thought the seasoning was perfect. Was worried that they may fry too long because they got fairly dark, but, came out nice and crunchy & perfect--not dry. I don't know if it makes a huge difference but, after I egg/coated the fish, I let them rest for about 5-10min. before frying--I just think they set up better. Served w/ tarter sauce.

Turkey Roll-Ups

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
I made these to use as sandwiches. They did not go over well--too seasoned. I think these would probably work better as an appitizer.

Double Peanut Snack Mix

Reviewed: Jan. 4, 2008
We really liked this. Next time I'll try natural peanut butter & not add the additional peanuts.

Baklava

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
After reading several reviews...I followed these helpful suggestions to make this baklava the closest to the consistency that I like. 1. I ground the nuts as fine as I could--very, very fine. 2. Made the syrup up earlier and let cool completely & then poured the cooled syrup onto hot baklava. 3. Did not over use the butter, tried to very lightly cover each sheet. I did use clarified butter a.k.a. Ghee--it allows for cooking with butter at a higher heat. This recipe will be a Christmas cookie staple from now on!

Middle Eastern Turkey Dogs

Reviewed: Dec. 11, 2007
Pretty good. I liked, but, no one else was that crazy about it. I love shish kafta & these are kind of like it. I served the turkey tubes in pita bread (pulled apart so you just roll up everything in one side) with tomato, lettuce, tzatziki sauce & a thinly sliced pickle (like I get them back home). I would make these for myself again.

Turkey Goulash

Reviewed: Dec. 5, 2007
Very good! The changes I made: sauted onion and green pepper in a little olive oil & then added ground turkey and browned. Doubled the amount of sugar and basil. Added a partial can of Rotel. I'm sure I added more garlic too :). I thought it tasted as good or better then goulash with ground beef.

Easy Baklava

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This was very easy to assemble, but, somewhat time consuming. It cut very nicely and baked up perfect. Not nearly as good as what I get from a bakery back home, but, not getting any 'homemade' Baklava in our new area---this was very good. I only used walnuts & I ground them very fine.

After-Thanksgiving Turkey Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 3, 2007
This was fabulous! Cleaning up after the Thanksgiving meal I threw the turkey carcass right into the pot and boiled the broth & finished making the soup next day--so easy. The only changes I made: I only used 1/2 c. butter (couldn't bring myself to use a whole cup--I'm sure the extra butter makes it richer) and only used 2 chopped onions. Good the first day, but, even better the second day! It is not a spicey soup...very mild with the cream. This recipe will be part of our day after turkey tradition!

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole

Reviewed: Nov. 30, 2007
This was a HUGE hit at Thanksgiving this year. I saw several people going back for seconds & even thirds! I didn't actually have any because I never cared for Sweet Potatoes ....but, I'm glad I finally found a recipe that everyone seemed to like. It was really easy too, I made mine the night before--and baked it right before dinner.
