Louisiana Sweet Potato Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 25, 2008
I agree with previous reviewers who said that they recipe needed more sugar. I also added some cinnamon, and think vanilla extract would have been good. It tasted kind of like an incredibly dense, heavy, and thick pancake.

Grilled Peanut Chicken

Reviewed: Oct. 23, 2008
It was interesting. We cleaned our plates, but I probably won't make it again. There were just too many flavors going on at once-- peanut, lime, spiciness from the cayenne, curry . . . it was an overload. (And the sauce wasn't too aesthetically pleasing. Looked like the inside of a diaper!) EDIT: The next day the flavors mellowed out a lot, and it tasted much better!

It's Chili by George!!

Reviewed: Oct. 16, 2008
This was my first time making chili, and I was so impressed with what little work it was-- just dump it in a pot and let it simmer! I think next time I'll add more meat and some chopped tomatoes. Goes great with rice and/or the Golden Sweet Cornbread recipe from this site.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread

Reviewed: Oct. 13, 2008
Easy and delicious. This bread is comfort food. I about doubled all the spices, and it smelled and tasted WONDERFUL. Also, I used 2 8x4" pans, and they took about 1 hour and 20 minutes to finish baking. Worth every minute, though-- the loaves are tall and beautiful.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Oct. 10, 2008
With the egg wash and the braid it turns out so beautifully, and it wows people. But it's so deceptively easy! My neighbor's son, who detests vegetables, gobbled this up, despite it being laden with broccoli and peppers. Next time I'll add more cheese or some salt to counter the sweetness of the crescent dough.

Broccoli Chicken Braid

Reviewed: Oct. 7, 2008
BEAUTIFUL, DELICIOUS, AND DECEPTIVELY EASY. My neighbor's teenage son, who abhors vegetables, loved the broccoli and peppers in this. I omitted the almonds, because I just forgot, and it was fine. Next time I'll add some salt or more cheese to counter the sweetness of the crescent dough. Incidentally, Pillsbury makes tubes of crescent dough without the seams now. How convenient!!

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I

Reviewed: Oct. 5, 2008
Simple and delicious! The top looked a bit dry, though. I think next time I'll try an egg wash. It was a cold day when I made it, so to aid the rising process, I preheated the oven to 500 for about a minute, turned it off, and let the dough rise in there.

Baked Pork Chops I

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
Easy and delicious. I went a little crazy with the seasoned salt, though. It was a tad salty but still great.

Fresh Southern Peach Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 23, 2008
Awesome topping-- everyone loved it. I skipped the 10 minutes baking the peaches on their own, and it turned out fine. Also, I wonder why the recipe calls for boiling water-- I learned that everything needs to be COLD to create a tender crust. I used room-temp water, and the topping turned out great. Thirdly, I'm not quick with a pastry cutter, so I opted to freeze my butter, grate it, and then freeze it again. This kept the butter cold and in little bits in the dough, which results in a tender topping.

Baked Teriyaki Chicken

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2008
Delicious! A bit salty, though. Next time, I'll use low sodium soy sauce. Also, many reviews said to double the sauce. I, personally, found the recipe to yield plenty sauce. Tip: if you don't use a silicone brush, your brush will smell STRONGLY! Great recipe; juicy, flavorful chicken; everyone loved it!

Buttermilk Biscuits I

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2008
Simple, light, and delicious! I cut the biscuits with a can, which worked great. I forgot to brush the tops with buttermilk, and they still turned out nicely. But don't expect them to get very golden-- they can be totally white but done to perfection.

Irish Soda Bread

Reviewed: Aug. 30, 2008
Great texture, quick, easy, and tasty. Only used 2 cups of raisins, and that was PLENTY. I also halved the caraway seeds, and even that was a bit much. Will bake it sans caraway next time. Also, the recipe picture shows the bread being sliced in wedges like a cake, but for easier buttering, it's much better to slice it across. Overall, wonderful. Will definitely make again!

Easy Sausage Strata

Reviewed: Aug. 26, 2008
Easy, hearty, and delicious! A great way to use up stale bread. I added about half a yellow onion, diced, to the skillet and cooked with a pinch of salt until soft and translucent before browning the sausage. The onion was a great addition.

Moist, Tender Spice Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2008
A much easier way to combine the ingredients (especially great if you lack a hand mixer) is to cream the butter and sugar; stir in the milk, eggs, and vanilla; then stir in the dry ingredients, sifted together. Smells like Thanksgiving and goes GREAT with a dollop of COLD, whipped cream! I baked mine in a bundt pan: about 75 minutes at 350 degrees.

Pineapple Bundt Cake

Reviewed: Jun. 29, 2008
Delicious and refreshing! Next time, I'll double it and fill a 12-cup bundt pan.

Grilled Tilapia with Mango Salsa

Awesome recipe! But I'd say it feeds only 2.

Orzo with Parmesan and Basil

Fast, delicious, and easy. I love how I didn't have to wait ten years for water to boil.

Quinoa Tabbouleh

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2008
Had a hard time getting the veggie pieces as small as they have them at the Arabic restaurants I've been to, but it was really tasty and healthy! I love how the quinoa adds so much protein, too. I added 3 cloves of garlic, minced. Will definitely make again.

Basil Chicken over Angel Hair

Reviewed: Apr. 11, 2008
Very simple, difficult to double, though, because of the sheer volume of all that pasta. It's nearly impossible to toss when you make that much!!!

Vegan Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 10, 2008
I was skeptical, but it tastes like great chocolate cake! I upped the cocoa to 1/3 cup. I don't have a good recipe for vegan frosting, though-- frosting made with margarine is pretty lumpy and gross. Still tasted good.
