Chicken and Pasta in a Mango Cream Sauce

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2004
Wonderful combination of flavors! Next time, I'll try doubling the ginger.

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.

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)

Reviewed: Jan. 17, 2008
My mother-in-law is gluten and lactose intolerant, so I thought I'd give this a shot on her last visit. Yum! Very cakelike, good nutty texture and taste from the beans. I think I would change it by adding a bit of vanilla, and using bittersweet chocolate, but otherwise it's great. I'm going to keep making it for myself even though she's gone home. :-) Make sure the flour you use to dust the pan is gluten-free, or even better, use cocoa instead.

Gorgonzola-Pepper Pasta Salad

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2007
This was wonderful for guests. It seemed like a little too much pasta for the amount of veggies, so I might cut that back a bit next time. Lacking champagne vinegar I used balsamic, which was tasty too. It was great the next day for leftovers.

Blueberry Buckle

Reviewed: Jul. 4, 2009
Delicious! I made a few changes based on what I had: one cup of blueberries with one cup of chopped, peeled plums; whole wheat pastry flour instead of all-purpose, and all brown sugar. I also added a squeeze of orange juice and the zest of half an orange. The cake was very light and moist; I'll definitely make this again!

Corned Beef and Cabbage II

Reviewed: Mar. 13, 2010
I grew up on my grandma's corned beef and cabbage on St. Paddy's Day, which she overcooked until dry and stringy. Understandably, I shied away from corned beef and cabbage for many years, until persuaded to try it well into my adulthood. It's recipes like this one that have convinced me that corned beef can in fact be juicy, flavorful and delicious; thank you for rescuing me from a bleak culinary memory!

Chocolate Cheese Frosting

Reviewed: Dec. 26, 2005
Delish...I used it on banana cake. I like that it's chocolatey and not overwhelmingly sweet. The ingredients didn't blend very well in the bowl, but it was still great.

Chicken Curry I

Reviewed: Feb. 25, 2006
This was my first attempt at curry, and I found it delicious! I used skinless, boneless chicken breasts, tomato sauce instead of paste, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Next time I'll throw some cauliflower in to simmer with the chicken. Yummy with a dollop of plain yogurt on the side!

German Chocolate Cake III

Reviewed: May 10, 2006
Delicious! I used six semisweet chocolate squares. Nice, moist and light. I made it for a birthday celebration and it disappeared in no time. I made it one night and served it the next; the frosting mellowed well, and was a big spoonful of creamy goodness. Thanks for a great recipe!

Lime Garlic Chicken

Reviewed: Jul. 9, 2006
Delicious, both tangy and smooth, just as promised. I only used 1/4 cup of butter, and that was plenty. Very quick and easy and good, I'll keep this one in mind.

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.

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.

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!

Fluffy Pancakes

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2007
This is my new pancake standby. Really yummy with brown sugar instead of white, and a few tablespoons of wheat germ. Next time I might try whole wheat pastry flour. Easy and lovely, especially with a few berries on top. ;-)

Field Grade Spaghetti Sauce

Reviewed: Feb. 11, 2006
I skipped the onion soup mix, and used a bottle of premade spaghetti sauce. It smelled heavenly while simmering, and the cinnamon added a unique sweetness that was excellent.

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!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 22, 2008
Truly delicious. I bought fresh chili powder in bulk for this recipe. Added a little cinnamon and a square of dark chocolate for richness. Quick and easy; it made my first attempt at enchiladas a great success. Thanks!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake

Reviewed: May 7, 2009
So moist and lovely! I baked it in one 8 inch round pan, and six mini-bundts for 30 minutes at 340. The pineapple is a particularly lovely flavor addition. I'll probably add some fresh nutmeg next time. Served with cream cheese frosting and sprinkled with toasted coconut and walnuts.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Mar. 29, 2006
So delicious and simple! I used cilantro in place of parsley, and chopped the carrots instead of grating them, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. This will become a new regular on my menu! This is my first experience with quinoa, and I'm looking forward to finding new ways to use it.
