Taco Seasoning (without the chili powder)

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2014
I ground my spices fresh, and the black pepper was the only thing I tasted in my chili. Grinding the peppercorns is NOT a good idea for this. I mean, we're talking so much that it was actually too spicy to even eat (and I love really spicy food). So don't do that.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies

Reviewed: Nov. 17, 2013
Made it GLUTEN and EGG FREE..blew everyone AWAY!!! Super and no one knows it is made for my little one with food allergies! Make with any gluten free baking flour, or do what I did-(cheaper) mix of 2 parts Rice flour mixed with 1 part chickpea flour and 1/2 part corn flour, 1/2 part cornstarch (or potato or tapioca starch), and 1 1/2 tsp of xanthum gum per every 4 cups flour. NRG egg replacer for the eggs. Everything else the same. Soooo wonderful. I did have to shape the cookies and press as they did not really form well, but who cares, they are the best cookies ever. Wheat and egg eaters do NOT know the difference. MY hats off to you, and I do not have to spend four dollars on 12 small wheat-free egg-free chocolate chip cookies at the health food store anymore!!! (which are extremely hard to find BOTH, by the way).

Grilled Marinated Shrimp

Reviewed: Dec. 27, 2010
I did not have the parsley, and I omitted the pepper sauce bc of little ones. I used a trick so there is no marinating. If you have one of those hand-held bladed pureeing wands, you just throw everything together and puree away. It turns into mayonnaise consistancy so you can just brush it on before or during grilling! Boy was this good! And I am very picky. It was salty, so next time I only used just over half the amount of salt and it was great. My 4 yr old who does not usually eat more than a small bite of shrimp devoured five of these!!

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free)

Reviewed: Dec. 8, 2010
This was hit and miss. I made it with more flour as many suggested, and it never spread out. After adding more butter and sugar, they were falling apart. Then I had to play with the baking time, making it 10 minutes, and reducing the cookie size and shaping it on the pan to be round and flat on top so it would hold together.

Delicious Gluten-Free Pancakes

Reviewed: Jun. 15, 2010
These were fantastic, but the four stars is because I made a major change in the liquid. They were too runny and the pancakes were thin. So after I made the first few, I added about 1/2 cup more rice flour (approximately, I really just dumped it in til the consistancy was right). They they came out really good. Next time I will use less liquid from the start. Oh, and I used milk and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice in it instead of buttermilk powder and water.

Spicy Bok Choy in Garlic Sauce

Reviewed: Jun. 1, 2010
This is superb! Just like in authentic Chinese restaurants. I even made several minor substitutions because I did not have things. Regular sugar, no red pepper, and regular oil not sesame. Still outrageous!

Restaurant-Style Coleslaw I

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
I new right away I would not like the lemon juice so I cut it down to 1tablespoon. I also cut out the milk as suggested because it was too watery. Overall very good, but I did not enjoy the lemon still.

Nuoc Cham Sauce

Reviewed: Mar. 15, 2010
I used half the water, and still this was soooo bland. Nothing like I get in restaurants, and I love viet food. I would use almost no water next time. And more red pepper or use fresh for more hotness, and was too sugary. Not even sure that would help, the flavor was just wrong.

Pittsburgh Potatoes

Reviewed: Sep. 4, 2009
To make it healthier I used yogurt instead of sour cream (whole milk yogurt), and still it was great.

Basil Tomato Soup

Reviewed: Aug. 28, 2009
I couldn't wait to taste this. Acidy and needed about 1 tsp of salt and 2 tablespoons of sugar. I would have put more cream in if I had it. I put some half and half in it. Four stars after the changes.

Tasty Tuna Burgers

Reviewed: Apr. 6, 2009
I made this for one and two yr olds so I replaced the veggies with powder counterparts and left out hot sauces. I read previous reviews so I added more breadcrumbs to make up for sogginess. I also added ketchup. My one and a half yr old gobbled this up. Thanks.

Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 14, 2009
I halved the sugar and doubled the ginger and used low sodium soy sauce after reading reviews. Great!! I used a trick because we do not eat the skin. I separated the skin from the meat with a sharp knife like a pocket, and put the marinade inside, then speared the skin back on with skewers(clipped off the long ends). When baking I peeled the skins back the last 25 minutes and basted so the skin did not get dry. The meat got all the flavor that way.

Minestrone Soup

Reviewed: Feb. 9, 2009
I read the other reviews so was prepared for the lack of liquid, I used 2 extra cups of broth, and half the cabbage. I put in 3 garlic cloves for more flavor, and doubled the seasoning. It still was very dry and lacked flavor. Healthy though, but everyone just sort of picked at it and the huge pot of it just sat in the fridge.

Indian Matar Paneer (Cottage Cheese and Peas)

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2008
This was not good. I have been cooking indian food for 20 yrs and this was way off. There was no sauce, and it needed more spice. And where is the salt? I had to save it. I quickly sauteed ginger and garlic in oil and stirred the mixture into it, add a finely chopped tomato. I added a 3/4 tsp of salt, more garam masala, 1/2 cup water, cooked for 10 minutes. Then added 1/2 cup of half and half and cooked for another few minutes on low. It was superb this way.

Emily's Famous Hash Browns

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2008
I never made these right. These were really crunchy and good. They would have lacked flavor, but I put in a good dash of salt, garlic powder and onion. If you have a gas stove five minutes on medium high per side is way too long. 3 minutes on medium is good. Thank you for awesome technique for ultimate crunchy hash browns!

Cola Pot Roast II

Reviewed: Aug. 5, 2008
I dont know why, it was tough maybe I got the wrong meat so I am not going to fault it for that. And I cooked it totally under gravy the last two hours. It needed more flavor and salt. I put some monced ginger in it and cooked it more. It was ok.
