Tom Ka Gai (Coconut Chicken Soup)

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2009
Just like the restaurants! You can also add a little mushrooms, or carrots to bulk up the soup a little but it's great the way it is! I also like to add in a can of diced tomatoes and a TBSP of curry sometimes. Very easy to prepare and DELICIOUS!

Boilermaker Tailgate Chili

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2009
Well I'm FROM Texas and this is a GREAT chili!!! It was really easy to make, just cook the meat and onions, drain, and toss the rest in a pot to simmer for the afternoon. For anyone who complains about the ingredient list, it's pretty much the majority of the savory spices in your spice rack. I didn't really measure (never do) so it didn't take long at all to dump it all in and start it simmering. I did add a splash (tbsp?) of liquid smoke on a whim, but it didn't NEED anything. I didn't have bacon bits so I left that out, but next time I'll toss it in if I have it. Definitely will be making this again, what a hit! Oh and for the 'traditional' feel, try it with sweet cornbread instead of corn chips. SO GOOD!

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2009
Budget friendly and DELICIOUS! I honestly didn't realize there was a recipe for this, as we've been making it as a weekly staple in our household for so long! I stumbled onto this digging for more yummy lentil recipes, and couldn't pass up encouraging everyone to try it! This is pretty much how I make Mujadarrah, sometimes I toss in curry powder or coconut milk for added 'oomph'. SUCH an easy dish to make, the height of convenience food without the ingredients! We'll definitely try a dash of cinnamon next time just for fun, I'm sure it'll fit in perfectly. Thanks for taking the time to share this, I hope everyone gives it a try!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: May 24, 2009
Excellent! Made it by recipe the first time, perfection! The second time I was out of sugar so I used about 1/2 cup brown sugar and the rest I used Blackstrap Molasses. I also accidentally put baking powder in before I realized it and added baking soda. The molasses made it a bit sticky, so I stirred in some ground flaxseed to 'sticky it up. It still came out perfect! Next time I might add some cocoa powder too, but they still came out perfectly!!! Thanks for sharing, this is THE perfect recipe!

Waffles I

Reviewed: Apr. 27, 2009
Most waffle recipes are dense...this one turned out light and fluffy, perfect! The second time we made them we did brown sugar instead of white, and doubled the vanilla, and used raw milk. Even fluffier than before! Great recipe, thanks for sharing it!

Restaurant-Style Zuppa Toscana

Reviewed: Apr. 3, 2009
This is insanely delicious...and so easy. We used regular ground pork sausage and I added a healthy amount of basil, but otherwise followed it to a 't'. The trick to the kale, for us, is to tear it up into small pieces, but it adds a great flavor and consistency to the soup. SO good! Definitely on our weekly menu now, thanks for sharing it!

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Ok 325 for 12 minutes was waaaaayyy off for me, and I've got a new oven that works very well. I did the second batch at 375 for 10 minutes and got MUCH better results with a crisp yet chewy cookie. After trying it by the recipe the first time (I always do), the second time I added 1/2 cup cinnamon chips and 1 cup coconut. It was splendiferous! Great recipe, just needed a little tweaking. Thanks!

Curried Rice Pilaf

Reviewed: May 20, 2007
Oh. My. Gosh! This was AWESOME! The only thing about this recipe is that next time I have to make DOUBLE! My whole family loved it! We tripled the curry just because we felt like 1 tsp was a little mild, and next time I might add some garam marsala to heat it up a bit more (we love spicy LOL) but seriously folks...as is this is a fantastic recipe! Easy to make, I sauteed everything BUT the rice, curry, and broth in a pan until it was brown, then added a little broth to get all the yummy bits off the bottom. Then I just dumped the entire contents of the pan, plus the rice and broth, into our rice cooker and Voila! My hubby walked in and insisted on 'taste testing' right away, and between him and the kids (17, 13, and 5) we didn't have any left! Thanks so much, this just got added to our weekly menu!

Spinach Deviled Eggs

Reviewed: Apr. 21, 2006
This was an excellent variation for traditional deviled eggs. The texture of the spinach was noticeable, but not overwhelming. The flavors were wonderful and complimented each other nicely. I cut the vinegar and sugar in half thanks to the suggestions of the reviewers, and added a small squirt (about 1 tsp) of sweet and spicy mustard. My Sweetie, who is very picky about his beloved deviled eggs, absolutely loved this version and snuck the remaining filling out of the bowl when I wasn't looking.

Pineapple Pie I

Reviewed: May 25, 2005
This pie is awesome and very easy to make. I didn't want to make a regular crust so I made a graham cracker crust and cooked the filling on the stove for about 10 minutes to set the egg. I also made a 10 inch crust so I added about a 1/2 cup more pineapple (the rest of the can) and a handful more coconut. YUM!
