The Best Thai Peanut Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
What a wonderful mingle of flavors; more complex than most peanut sauces I've tasted (and I judge Thai restaurants by their peanut sauce). It was a little too thick, so thinned it out with extra coconut milk; maybe next time (and there will definitely be a next time) I'll use a little less peanut butter.

Southern Coleslaw

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2007
This was a great, light alternative to my usual creamy coleslaw. After making it according to recipe directions, it was lacking something, so I added extra tomatoes, chopped green onion and about a tablespoon of garlic olive oil. I served it with chicken satay and peanut sauce, and the flavors were terrific together.

Linguine with Asparagus, Bacon, and Arugula

Reviewed: Feb. 6, 2007
From the perspective of not being an asparagus lover, I have to say..this was great! I doubled the garlic, and sauteed the asparagus a couple of minutes more than called for. Skipped the olive oil entirely and used the bacon drippings for cooking the veggies. Very light, tasty. I served it with citrus-marinated chicken, but probably will skip that in the future and just go for the pasta. Thanks for the yummy combination of flavors!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I

Reviewed: Jan. 21, 2007
Chewy, fudgy goodness! Lacking white sugar, I used a little bit of sucanat, and mostly maple sugar. Still fabulous!

Dark Chocolate Sauce

Reviewed: Jan. 6, 2007
The texture is quite good, though I'd need much more rich chocolate flavor to be truly wowed. Good in a pinch or when I need something a little less decadent.

Cream Cheese Chicken

Reviewed: Dec. 30, 2006
A little too sweet for me, but otherwise a great mix of flavors and textures. Almonds are good in place of walnuts.

Apple Orchard Punch

Reviewed: Dec. 29, 2006
Delicious! Wonderfully colorful and not too sweet. I doubled the recipe and used champagne in place of ginger ale.

Chicken Breasts Stuffed with Perfection

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
This was fabulous...it perfumed the house while cooking, and got raves from my guests. Mine took about 15 minutes longer to cook than the recipe called for. Instead of tearing up bread, I used panko crumbs, which gave a great crunchy topping. Thanks for a great recipe; my chef's cache has gone up a notch with this dish.

Cranberry Ice Cream Swirl Cake

Reviewed: Dec. 22, 2006
Delicious and unusual. Also too time consuming to make except for very special occasions. I'd probably double or at least increase the cranberry swirl by half. I skipped cooking the pistachios in butter, just bought roasted nuts. Otherwise it was a wonderful mix of flavors, and got by far the most raves of any birthday cake I've made. :-)

Mom's Good Cinnamon Rolls

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2006
Like an earlier reviewer said, this is better thought of as bread with some cinnamon and sugar flavor. They taste good, but aren't gooey, messy sticky cinnamon rolls, which was what I really wanted when I started baking. I even sprinkled quite a bit extra cinnamon and sugar on before baking and after, but just wasn't the desired effect.

Cream of Cauliflower Soup II

Reviewed: Dec. 9, 2006
Wonderful bellywarming fare on a chilly winter night. The prep was easy and flavors were lovely. I used leftover roasted carrots and potatoes, and made my own chicken stock from a roasted chicken earlier today. When you serve the soup, try it with a small splash of heavy cream on top; this adds an incredible dimension of flavor and mouthfeel. This is a great soup base, and I'll use it with other vegetable combinations as well. Thanks!

Oat Waffles

Reviewed: Dec. 7, 2006
This is my new favorite waffle. The oats add a lightness and a bit of a crunch that's lovely. I love them smeared with berry jam, but they're versatile.

Grandma Johnson's Scones

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2006
Wow...these are lovely. I used whole wheat pastry flour and dried cherries. I find most scones too dry, but these are moist and flavorful. I'm about to take them to a holiday party and I'm sure they'll disappear quickly. This will be a new basic recipe for me.

Pasta With Veggies In a Tahini and Yogurt Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 20, 2006
It needs more garlic and less liquid, but then it'll taste great! I used a lot more veggies than called for, and threw in some leftover grilled chicken to simmer. This is a fun and different sauce I look forward to tinkering with.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
I just ate this with potato-leek soup, and it was lovely! I bypassed the caraway seeds and raisins completely. The bread was a little too sweet for my taste, so I'll cut down on sugar, but overall incredibly moist and flavorful. It smelled wonderful while baking, and came out golden at 65 minutes. Thanks for a great recipe!

Creamy Potato Leek Soup II

Reviewed: Nov. 5, 2006
Wow...so rich and wonderful! I cut the bacon to 3/4 lb., didn't peel the potatoes and partially mashed them with the broth. The flavors are wonderful, especially with romano and fresh pepper on top. Due to the calorie and fat content, this will be an occasional treat, but what a treat! I made Irish Soda Bread to accompany.

Flourless Chocolate Cake II

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2006
This was my first attempt at flourless chocolate cake, and I'm completely sold! I used dark chocolate chips, a little less sugar, and kahlua in place of vanilla extract. My sweetie and I had to control ourselves from eating the whole thing warm from the pan. I wish I had some vanilla ice cream for the top, but it's still great. It did fall apart though, despite precautions... ;-( It's great for those of us who like our chocolate unadulterated by most anything. I'm going to try other flourless recipes too, but this one is an easy keeper. UPDATE: Baking in a springform pan makes removal much easier!

Mahogany Devil's Food Cake

Reviewed: Nov. 3, 2006
This cake was nice and moist, but was bland; it didn't have nearly enough chocolate to make it appropriately sinful. It wasn't fabulous enough to make me want to try again with modifications. Oh well...

Sour Cream Chocolate Frosting

Reviewed: Nov. 2, 2006
Nice creamy, chocolatey frosting. I used milk chocolate chips and only a cup of powdered sugar, and frosted a devil's food cake. I think I'll use dark chocolate next time for more flavor.

Extra Gingery Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2006
Dark, rich and fabulous! The bits of candied ginger are wonderful flavor bursts. I might use even more next time. The only change I made, by necessity, was to use orange juice instead of apple. Served with a cream cheese frosting dotted with more candied ginger. I'll be making this again frequently, especially as holidays approach.
