The Best Thai Coconut Soup

Reviewed: Jul. 21, 2013
I used this recipe to make a healthier version of a Thai soup. They are usually laden with fat and salt. My substitutions are just a heaping tablespoon of Thai & True Red Curry Paste (mail ordered from Food Fight in Oregon - lower salt and ungodly good), low salt chicken broth, 2 cans of low fat coconut milk. I also use a T-spoon of the paste lemongrass because that's all I can get. I have been making it with both shrimp and chicken. It has been pronounced as "restaurant quality" by everyone fortunate enough to try it. It also doesn't seem to take anywhere near 35 minutes to prep. 5 stars but I'd happily give it 10!

Real N'awlins Muffuletta

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2013
The olive salad alone is reason to give this recipe 5 stars. It's crazy expensive if you can't buy small amounts of ingredients (I am somewhat rural) so I made a double batch and with a few more green olives and capers, I can make another. I had about a gallon of the stuff and thought I'd never use it all. I gave some away but then I tried it on home made gnocchi and, well, I'm keeping the rest and making more. Bruschetta, pizza, cheese and crackers...straight out of the jar. It's phenomenal. I once bought a jar from Central Grocery in NOLA and it was not this good! My only tweak was a little chopped fresh parsley.

Blue Cranberry Sauce

Reviewed: Nov. 26, 2013
I love this and I have never been a cranberry sauce fan. I hope it lasts till Thanksgiving as I made it Tuesday night. I thought the amount if sugar was perfect for my taste. I just used a 4.4 oz package of blueberries (expensive enough in my town!) and that, too was perfect. A pint might have been more blueberry than cranberry but probably good, too. I had no idea a homemade cranberry sauce could be so easy, either. 5 stars!

Easiest, Amazing Guacamole

Reviewed: Aug. 9, 2013
Hey, I like a simple mashed up avocado, too. It can be very good but it's not guacamole. Guacamole is simple enough to make it if you want it. Call this a seasoned mashed avocado and you have something.
