Mulligatawny Soup II

Reviewed: Apr. 14, 2005
I was dissapointed with this mulligatawny. I was looking for something different than my usual mulligatawny which we love. I found this rather bland. Sorry.

Stewed Cabbage

Reviewed: Jul. 26, 2005
I know it would need more flavor so I added more garlic, some thyme, and some red chili flakes. It was very good. Would not have made it as written-looks too bland for me.

Spicy Indian Chicken Curry Yummy

Reviewed: Sep. 26, 2005
I restrained myself from modifying the ingredients due to the reviews (I always modify everything). Glad I did! My husband is from India, and he is picky about his food. Boy was I tempted to use garam masala (that my husband's Mom made) instead of the curry powder (real indian curries never use curry powder, please!). Well my husband loved this, said it tasted like his Mom's. The only thing I did different was I cooked it more traditionally-I browned the onions in oil first, then added the ginger garlic, then the spices, stirred it for a couple minutes, then proceeded with the chicken and continued. It did need a little water added to it. Thanks for the easy recipe!

Firecracker Grilled Alaska Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 3, 2005
This was good, but no where near "the best". By the name and the reviews I expected to be Wowed. I marinated it 8 hours, too. It needed more flavor, a stronger marinade, or maybe the marinade needs to be used as a sauce after cooking the fish (thicken the marinade with cornstarch and simmer or something!) Good start, though.

Indian Mustard Fish

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2005
Being experienced in indian cooking, I was intrigued by the ingredients and simpliciy of this recipe. It was bland and very bitter from crushing up the mustard seeds. I never heard of crushing up mustard seeds for anything in cooking, only in making prepared mustards. We ate it so I gave it a 2. But then again, we were really hungry. I washed off the fish pieces the next day and gave it to my dogs, they liked it.

Honey Ginger Grilled Salmon

Reviewed: Oct. 22, 2005
This was really good with the following changes. I marinaded it for about 20 hours. It needed a little more sweetness so I added 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. It also needed more green onion, so I put in two more. It wasn't salty enough, but that was my fault I used low salt soy sauce. I baked it (with some of the marinade in the pan) at 400 for 30 minutes, basting it twice. With these changes it could be a five.

Lemon Garlic Hummus

Reviewed: Dec. 18, 2007
I made this and was so dissapointed. It ws missing something. Duh, the tahini! You can't make hummus without tahini, and you don't need all that oil either.

Eggplant Parmesan II

Reviewed: May 12, 2008
I just don't know what happened. The eggplant was tough. I prepared it exactly like the directions. My husband says "you owe me one".

Chicken Enchiladas II

Reviewed: May 19, 2008
Well I made some major changes to this and it was excellent. I have to say, though, that there is no way there is enough filling for the amount of tortillas, so 1 1/2 times the mixture stuff. I used ground turkey, added cumin, used yogurt instead of sour cream, used some fresh cilantro, and put a little salsa in the mixture. Also used green spinach torillas. It was excellent.

Flavorful Flounder

Reviewed: Jun. 24, 2008
the first bite is a shocker if you don't know it's parmesan cheese. The cheese and lemon are very distinct in flavor. But overall it was good, and the baby even liked it.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes

Reviewed: Jun. 25, 2008
just okay. very good ratio of ingredients but way too bland. Needs some garlic or onion powder, and more salt (you really can't put in on the potatoes "to taste" when you can't taste it at that time (who tastes raw potatoes?).

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
